    Uncut Gems (2019)

    the pace of it evoking modern life is interesting as one of the safdies is kind of fixated on making sure the audience isnt ever bored. where is the end point of that though? the one thing i think that i wasnt that impressed with was the ending. it seemed rightfully blunt and makes sense when...

    Uncut Gems (2019)

    saw this a second time - was thinking it wouldnt be half as good and it does lose the stressfulness (somewhat), the manic pace, the unpredictability, its easier to follow, but it still works as a comic tragedy and character study when you already know how it plays out. howard is a guy that just...

    Uncut Gems (2019)

    safdies are the best american filmmakers doing it right now. lopatin's score for UG is intense but it might make the films even better if he used some more modern synths.

    GRIME- breaking news, gossip, slander, lies etc

    dee basically just repeats himself nowadays. i think bruza, dee, flirta d and lady stush would be good doing voices on cbeebies or kids cartoons. dog-z and syer b should be in all those football hooligan films on london live. or they should get trained to be football commentators. trim might be...

    Upcoming films

    irishman is a bit like a netflix mini series in one go, so no dramatic peaks, though very easy to watch. pesci doesnt do much, though its nice to see him in a big film again, deniro looks bored. it does get good in the last hour when we finally see everyone in the present day, but otherwise its...

    Joker (2019)

    Zac snyder is weirdly underrated The DK nolan films were the dullest looking and most lumbering batman films ever made Batman vs superman was much more exciting

    Joker (2019)

    what a let down. i did fall asleep mid way so maybe i missed a lot of good bits, but when i woke up, the film was finally getting into gear, or at least getting ready for a joke about short people. phoenix is actualy a bit overrated (when you were here was just terrible, and as full of rehashed...

    the sensation of muck

    interesting post. obv its not wrong, i get a weird, sickly, ugh feeling when i see second hand record shops now (feel guilty about this and remember when i used to spend half my life in them but then remember i cant really afford to do it now), but OTOH when i see a lot of new dance music that...

    Who are the R&B geniuses ATM?

    R&B/alt-RnB is great at the moment IMO jealousy from dawn richard's new album/EP is just incredible.

    The hip hop never ever ever stops thread

    the whole point of them is how similar they each sound to the other. you dont really go to them for individual voices (and im not sure they have much of those). rap albums of the year? im sure youve got more varied lists but mine would prob be: shy glizzy roc marciano pusha t (though not sure...

    The hip hop never ever ever stops thread

    pitchfork, ignoring the fact that maybe seeing any of migos with their mask off just isnt necessary.
