    Default Upcoming films

    Anyone got anything they're particularly looking forward to? The trailer for The Lighthouse finally appeared the other week.

    Not really but I'd welcome some tips. I didn't really enjoy The Witch much and that trailer didn't really grab me but a lighthouse is a great setting for a horror film so... I was telling my girlfriend about that Scottish island where the crew disappeared just the other day in fact and we read about it. Weird life to choose I always think. But so are many others I suppose.

    The Safdies (Good Time) have a new one on the way with Adam Sandler in the lead as an NYC jeweler which sounds promising. He's quite good in serious roles and based on Good Time they could well do something interesting with it. OPN's back for the soundtrack too.

    There's a new Malick film about Nazi Germany on the way but I dunno if I can be bothered. You know what you're gonna get, it's gonna be loads of woozy camera shots, close-ups on blades of grass with lens flare and whispered dialogue for two hours plus.

    Joaquin Phoenix is doing some sort of Joker origin story aimed at 'mature' audiences which is being shown at Venice.

    Midsommar just came out.

    There's an Adam Driver thing about the CIA's post-9/11 torture program that could be decent.

    Noah Baumbach has some new thing coming out on Netflix called Marriage Story.

    Scorsese's got a new $200m gangster flick on the way on Netflix starring De Niro, Pesci, Keitel and Pacino.

    Yeah I haven't seen Midsommar, The Dead Don't Die or In Fabric yet.
    Agree with you about Malick, I've given up the hope of him doing anything even halfway decent ever again.00*0

    I love Badlands, kind of like The Thin Red Line and have no clue what I think of The Tree of Life. The rest I haven't seen. Here's the new one:

    Based on real events, from visionary writer-director Terrence Malick, A HIDDEN LIFE is the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter, who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the Austrian peasant farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife Fani and children that keeps his spirit alive.

    In Theaters December 13, 2019
