Well yeah, but honestly..



Live posting this re-watch of blade runner 2049 where Ryan gosling is really really really into Sony product placement



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



I feel like we have done injustice to every ad in the world after seeing city sized ad grids in this movie and fake ads being actually real ads for Sony, Atari, Coca Cola and Nike



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Ryan Gosling gets hit in the face a lot here. Everyone hits his face, and that lady also kicks his balls. He does not have an easy job



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



I wonder what the instructions for Jared Leto's office were. "Hmm, yes, please no chair, no desk, just two couches, yellow light oh and did I mention the 250 000 liters of water?? Yeah I need this for work, I'm wearing suits, see??"



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Harrison Ford really got old. I mean not worse than in Disney's Star Wars but you know, drat



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Go watch it, it's 3 hours long, consists out of 60% monumental music, 20% ads that have enormous nipples, 10% Jared Leto saying poetic stuff and 10% Ryan Gosling bleeding almost as much as DiCaprio in the revenant



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Just to get slightly philosophical here for a second, the transhumanistic views transported are really loving beautiful. It questions the value of life, the rights of humans to create things and what defines a person. I must say I find Ryan Gosling great in his role, but he plays it almost too robotic, too replicant. Like, he barely shows emotions - which of course is his jam - even though that his entire drive to question his own existence. Imagine that, embodying the dualistic nature of being an emotionless machine slave vs being a real, born human that strives for something unknown in one character. As if the conflict he has with himself, shown by the AI girl he's banging, is the most humane thing he could do, up to the point where he shares the view that dying for a good cause is what makes him human.

Also important: This cute dog.

oh but seriously I posted:

leto sucked in that. big dave bautista did a good job

I like the way Leto plays his insane character, because he's so insane by himself. It's not a good performance in itself, the character is too undefined, but it's less Leto's fault than the fact that the entire character circles around standing in ridiculous rooms all day long.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Although I have to say that apart from this ridiculous density of Sony ads in a movie that's already 100% owned by Sony, I find it very weird how Leto's character is so after finding the baby and adding it to the collection, as if he was unaware of the problems doing so brings with it. Like, he's super pro robo humans and slaves and whatnot and obviously is a plain villain type of guy, but from business perspective it seems unlikely he's blind to the dangers of pregnant slave humans procreating all day long.
Either he's a successful and insane business guy with laughable taste for architecture and no idea of practical office designs, or he's just an insane rich guy with a dumb idea that backfired before and will backfire again. Which one is it, movie, tell me!!



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Also also, Sean Young being shown from 30 years ago and edited in to fit so perfectly and make Harrison Ford aroused might be one of the coolest and most stunning effects ever seen in movies. Like, this is the real poo poo, look at her, even Disney couldn't do this with Carrie Fisher and they have literally all the money in the world to do it



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Alright since I started this live posting already half way in the movie we're already at the final fight between Gosling and Hoeks and I'm this pumped to see one of them drowning while being choked while the time frame set is Harrison Ford almost drowning.
Being an actor in a movie like this is not an easy job I can assume



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



oh but seriously I posted:

that was cool

idk about this movie, man. it was like... half-good/5

Oh yes I feel you, I'm not a super duper fan, I just love the theme, the questions it tries to visualize and the monumental style. It's not a perfect thing, especially in terms of content and in terms of amounts Jared Leto should get his balls mashed in



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



It's like, Leto read the script and thought "Hmm, ok, I get it. Be the ultimate face with drones and the most terrible tie in human history. No problem!"



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Ryan Gosling survives everything in this movie. Again. He lost like 7 liters of blood and is cut open from belly to chest and yet he drives Harrison Ford to his daughter, casually realizing he's bleeding via the old "oh there's blood in my jacket" trick



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Also I feel somewhat bad for him. All he did was his job and all he got was getting disappointed over and over and over again. By his boss, his job, his victims, his very own existence and then he sits on some stairs and the movie ends and we didn't even get to see if Leto is just like "Hmm, my prime slave drone just died, maybe I should send another army due to my infinite power and wealth? Ah nah let's act like this is a happy end for Harrison Ford, he's an old guy!" which, let's face it, he probably isn't



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Alright this is it, brutal music in the end credits, Hans Zimmer did his thing again. I like the movie, it's cool, but you need to be in a certain mood and definitely need a proper sound setup to enjoy it. Excellent portrayal of basic transhumanism though, even though that's more on the book origin than the movies.
Thanks for live posting with me, I'll re-watch Jared Leto's Joker performance in suicide squad now to get my fill of anger and confusion after his poetic role here.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



You know me, I like to suffer.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Just wait for my 38th live posting re-watch of Requiem for a dream for prime ball kicking opportunities



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Hello again, it is horror night and what else makes a movie even scarier than live posting about it! We are watching "It Follows" by the director with three names that are somehow all sur and last names, David Robert Mitchell. Critics love the movie, I don't know it, so I'm curious about it. Weirdly enough, it's rated R in the US and for some reason is ok for 12 year olds in Germany, so whatever is going on here, perhaps the Germans find it less scary??

As with all movie live postings, spoilers ahead



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



So a girl is running with high heels on and keeps telling everyone she's OK, those shoes definitely are horror



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Girl's dead. She might have fallen because of the shoes. Stay safe, shoe wearers



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Another girl just killed an ant. I hate her already. Don't kill ants, ants are friends!!



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



She had a date and her boyfriend wanted to leave the cinema before the movie even started and they paid like 30 bucks for popcorn, this movie makes me quite angry



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Okay so the synopsis is that It is like an STD, you have it and you can only transmit it via sex with someone. If you have it, it's like that one scary SCP monster, it permanently follows you and if it reaches and touches you, you're dead. If you transmit it to someone else, you're good, as it only follows one person. If the followed person dies though, it jumps back one generation and goes back to following the last living person that had it. It always takes the form of some random human and does not seem to have its own shape, so you don't know for sure where or what it is currently. Scary.

Weird setup, I have many questions how it works, like, how's sex defined in that setup and stuff. Anyways, the ant killing girl has it now because her boyfriend wasn't actually her boyfriend but just tried to give it to her (probably because she earned it for killing that ant) and yeah now we're in the action.

One jump scare so far, not good, not terrible.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



Three jump scares. It's getting annoying.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



I believe this movie is only rated R because of the ant killing scene.



Goons Are Groovy

Well yeah, but honestly..



This movie is really anachronistic. It's like modern day but they have old rear end TV, the hospital has old rear end equipment, even the cars are like 50s, but they also have smartphones and modern poo poo. It's clearly in the present but somehow it isn't.

Ok I dunno why this movie is considered so good, I find it boring. The monster idea is weird as hell and obviously some STD reference which I don't really like, I mean ok, it's a teenager thingy and maybe I'm just too old or whatever, but this isn't rely good. It's a creative idea but the jump scares suck, the protagonist is unbearably dumb and the suspense gets old really quickly.
Also, an ant got killed and I'm sure it wasn't an effect but an actual ant that got killed on set.

Thanks for following my annoying live post of this mediocre horror movie about teenagers being bad at visiting cinemas.
