    And relevant today.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Hitmans wife's bodyguard or whatever the title was. Was alot of fun. I love when silly movies are self-aware and just embrace it. A blast to watch

    A Quiet Place Part II.

    A pretty good sequel to the original, even if the mystery aura of the monsters starts being chipped away. But I guess that was going to be inevitable when getting new movies, like with the original Alien.

    And even if it was accompanied by the typical "horror movie character does something very stupid" scene, I was touched by the revelation that Emmett spoilers:
    left his wife's dead body to rot since digging a grave in the open wasn't a good option.
    end of spoilers

    Resident Evil 1-3

    Its a shame that they didnt get what RE 1 was all about. The movies are totally different in tone. The first one was ok (not compared to the game) the second one was boring and the third one was in between.

    Batman Begins

    On a nostalgia kick, I watched this one for the I Don't Know The Number time. All I could think about is how hard I was on that movie when it first came out, picking on every little thing. But now I just love every moment. And the soundtrack, which is kinda underrated.

    Same here. Maybe I'm just a split personality of yours?

    I tried Fincher's Mank for the 2nd time and turned it off again.

    Just finally finished Diabolique (1955) on HBO Max. That was pretty fantastic on a first watch if you're not sure what you're getting. I remember when Bound came out, it was supposedly similar but I only sat through it cause... Tilly, she had some moments. Diabolique is long but it's funny in a lot of places and of course there is a character who kinda falls out of the sky at the end but shit, it was pretty unsettling at the end. Simone Signoret was pretty hot in it too. It wasn't til later where I started to feel like damn, there's got to be an easier way to leave your wife lol.

    Surf, you should also watch The Wages of Fear, Clouzot's other masterpiece.

    Mank sounds like it really ought to be a good film.

    I really liked Mank. Guess it depends on how much you are a fan of Citizen Kane.

    Oldman is great as expected and there's witty dialogue but overall its too many old timey studio insider jokes for me

    I think it helps to be well versed in Hollywood history of that time and especially that around Citizen Kane.

    I wanted to like Mank but Ed Brubaker did it better with Fade Out and Tarrantino with Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Not to bash Fincher. Still love the guy. I will rewatch Mank in a few years and maybe get more out of it.

    I really liked Mank too, I'd give it four stars. But it COULD HAVE been better, that I do accept.

    I'm not sure Tarantino and Fincher were going for the same vibe. AT ALL. Tarantino in no way tried to capture the essence of 60s cinema in that film, in how it was shot, in the style of writing and narrative, which was very much Fincher's focus for 'Mank'.
