Review Death of Stalin is such an unbelievable movie

448 Upvotes

First off everyone speaking in wildly English accents is hilarious they don't even try to pretend to be Russian, you can absolutely sense the fear and horror of Stalin by the people at the music hall, Stalin's like miles away and they all think he's gonna shoot them within seconds. When they get the second conductor and he preforms so they can get another recording in his pajamas was a true story! Happened about 9 years earlier but a true story and just shows how not a single person in the entire union has said no to Stalin in like 2 decades. Georgy Zhukov having enough charisma and stamina to impregnate an entire seaboard is totally accurate and hilarious I absolutely adore it. Beria being a complete monster but also kinda funny even as he was being executed was wild, Malenkov being incompetent instead of Beria's strongest ally was an artistic choice and i guess just an idea to not have too many villains and ngl I enjoyed it far more than if he teamed up with Beria like he did in real life. The speeches they all gave at Stalins funeral and then Khrushchev not speaking was eerie and smart as hell, they all are trying to buy the support of the public while he's already consolidated power. Getting the doctors is hilarious because they are just so casual and incompetent and then competent and ruthless in the next scene. Then when they examine Stalin's brain and body and they are still complementing a dead man to show their loyalty is just so fun. Not even mentioning Stalins son and Svetlana who is absolutely perfect, as is Vasily who steals every scene he is in. Absolutely perfect film 10/10.

News John Mctiernan returns to film

43 Upvotes

After 20 years out of the public spotlight, the director of famous classics such as Predator, Die-Hard, as well as many other films is returning to direct a new film. John is set to direct a film called "Taut Ceci Foxtrot" which will star Uma Thurman, and Laurence Fishburne in the lead roles. The narrative of the film centers around a group of rebels who set out to kill the Oligarchs and military faction that terrorized a war-torn planet in the remote Tau-Ceti solar system.

The film is set to start production in Paris this fall, and has had a social media image of Samurai esque individuals riding horses through a foggy darkened swampland. Due to Covid, he was having trouble to get funding for his project comeback, but now is able to get the film done and worked on with restrictions lifted.

How do you feel about the iconic directors return to the world of Hollywood? Are you excited Yay or nay?

Discussion Which movies had the biggest divide between critics reviews and audience reception?

Upvotes

Basically if a movie is critically acclaimed by critics however it was either received negatively by the audience or even a much more divisive response. Same goes for the opposite side where a movie is negatively reviewed critics yet was pretty popular with the audience.

One example of this could be Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi. When the movie launched in 2017, it recieved critical acclaim in its reviews however soon after its release the reception from the audience was pretty divided, with people either really liking the movie or really disliking the movie.

Recommendation Looking for Recommendations: The Darkest Hour

4 Upvotes

Recently watched the Darkest Hour and really liked it. I would love some recommendations from the community for history based movies, preferably with no or very less war/combat scenes.

Imitation Games would fall in this category but have watched it.
Can be from the post world war II era as well but linked to some event in history
