    I was writing a long-ish post about the state of Hollywood, until I realised that it basically came down to "Watch some Asian stuff in the meantime". So yeah, do that.

    Hostiles - Joe Blocker(Christian Bale) is an apathetic Union officer during the frontier days who must take an Indian and his family to Montana and let them go free. And he doesn't want to do it but is forced not only by his superior, but also the President of the United States. He has severe hatred for the american Indian. That message in this story is loud and clear. The men in his company despise Indians and the Indians mostly hate the white man, but not as much as Joe who has seen it all and killed many.

    At the beginning a woman survives an attack from Comanches that kills her husband and family. Joe and his company come upon her sitting in a burned out house on their way to Montana. And they take her with them. She just wants to die and hates everyone including any Indians. But this is where Joe's arc begins to change from an angry, hateful person to sympathetic.

    This movie is pretty slow and has a good moral as well as a good message. Which is about healing and redemption.

    Well, I'd say it's somewhat similar, but not exactly the same. I mean Joe doesn't become an Indian and lose his identity, nor did the woman become adopted and now speaks Indian language. But the sympathetic emotions over the course of the movie is similar.

    SLICE - don't waste your time. it's bad. really bad. It might be the shark jumping moment for 80s nostalgia horror.

    The Nun, I'm not a fan of Horror films, but since I have AMC's A-List, I checked it out. Its not a scary flick, rather predictable but it got me into the franchise. i want to see all previous films in this universe.

    Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. Making a film with primarily British and experienced cast (plus Maggie Gyllenhaal) is basically cheating. The acting will at least very good and to add to that, the script was surprisingly solid. Each of the child chracters got a bit of development and their chance to shine in the finale. Overall - a pretty good family film. I liked it.

    Ok, so Predator (2018). It is a sequel, like the others, not a reboot. Is it good? Well, it's ok. The movie tries to be fun, so it's full of jokes and gory action. The characters aren't necessarily likable and I'm not sure are meant to be. Some of the jokes are funny, though. In turms of "science" and mythology - feels rather dumb. So yeah, that's what it is - a dumb gory action flick.

    I have a very peculiar selection for this weekend, which I hope will give me something to share. So, stay at the same Сant. time, same Сant. channel.

    Dogman. An Italian drama about a dog hairdresser and his difficult relationship with a local bully. One of my favourite films of the year, honestly. A really compelling, personal drama that is so sincere and sweet that you can't help but fall in love with the main character. If it plays in a cinema near you, go watch it.

    So, this weekend I decided to dig up a couple of war movies from (cinema-wise) obscure countries to see what they have to say about war, patriotism, duty etc.
    Today it was Lebanon (2009) from Israel. This is an... art-house (anti-)war movie a tank crew's experience during the first day of the 1982 Lebanon war. It's shot primarily inside the tank, while everything that's outside is view through the tank's gunsight. The movie is dark and discomforting. It presents said experiences through various images and personal worries and conflicts of the crew. It is also very critical about the war and how it was conducted, although I am not sure if it's primarily war in general, or the 1982 war specifically, as it's not the first time I've seen this war portrayed negatively. Still, a good and strong piece of cinema.
    P.S. All the Israeli movies war movies I've come across (this, Waltz with Bashir (2008) and Beaufort (2007)) are personal stories about horrors of war. While such movies are good and necessary, I kinda expeted a country, that keeps fighting so much, to also make movies, that are about patriotism and defending said country from it's enemies. Maybe it does, and I've just missed those movies.

    I rewatched Spider-Man (2002) after many, many years today. Good stuff! A true superhero classic. It's much cheesier than I remembered, though. ;) But this is also why it has a very distinctive comic book feel. It feels like a literal transition between Burton's kind of "comic-bookness" and the modern MCU-type style. Action and visual effects hold up very well (can't say that about the opening credits and other similar visualisations!). I liked how brutal the final brawl between Spidey and Green Goblin was - it seems like we don't get fights that intense these days. Also - Tobey is the best Spider-Man! He's more fleshed out than the other two.
