Is anyone excited about The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent? I'm a Nicolas Cage fan, so this sounds like a dream come true (I've been waiting for it since it was first announced). It's getting great reviews, and it was filmed in my country (in one of our most beautiful cities), so there are many reasons for me to really look forward to it.
Yeah I'm really looking forward to it too. He's made a lot of terrible movies over the years but you never know what you're going to get from him next so there's always something to look forward to.Is anyone excited about The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent?

Mandy was great! I still haven't seen Pig, but he got some of the best reviews of his career for it. I also have two plush pigs (one of them is a boar) who are very eager to see that film! Cage's definitely been having a sort of a comeback.Mandy has been my fave of his in years followed by Pig.
Wait, aren't you Croatian?We loved the film! I expected it to be kind of experimental, which it wasn't, and less mainstream - and it was also a bit disappointing to see that the Croatian coast was used to play Mallorca - but other than that, the film was funny, enjoyable, and even heartwarming. Pedro Pascal won our hearts yet again!
Now I want to see Cage and Pascal make another comedy together.
I am The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent was shot on the Croatian coast, namely in and around the city of Dubrovnik, so we hoped that that would be somehow acknowledged in the film, but it turned out that the film is set in Spain, so Dubrovnik was merely used to act as Mallorca.Wait, aren't you Croatian?
This sounds intriguing!
I've been wanting to message you about Doctor Strange for a few days now but kept postponing it until the right moment arrived... which might be just now.BTW, what did you think about Doctor Strange?
I've seen What have you done to Solange? (Testi was in it too) but haven't seen this one (aka Red rings of Fear).Hi all here. Has anyone seen this Italian film from the 70s? The resemblance to Twin Peaks in these images is almost silly -

I didn't really like it. Or, to be more precise, I really didn't like it. It was just too much action for me, from the very first scene, when what I like the most are slow dramas. I wouldn't say I had a bad time or anything like that - it was a pleasant evening which included going to a restaurant, then to the theater, and afterward for a beer, so it's part of a nice memory - but the film itself made me want to clear my mind of action, chaos, colors, images... It made me want to watch a black and white Ingmar Bergman film.
The whole multiverse aspect made me feel like there are no more real stakes in that world, like it's no longer important what happens to the characters.
Also, my friend, who has seen WandaVision, was very upset with what they did with Wanda Maximoff in this film. Obviously, we shouldn't go into details, because we wouldn't want to spoil it for others, and, as you know, I personally still haven't seen it as well, but I just wanted to mention that she felt somewhat betrayed by this film.
I know you liked Doctor Strange, and I wanted to like it as well, so, please, don't take this as trying to criticize something someone else feels different about. I just wanted to give you an honest account of how I felt. I guess it's just not my kind of thing. For comparison, I wasn't thrilled with Dune or The Northman either, but I still liked them much more than this film.
I've seen it back in 2015, yes, and it's still the only Mad Max film I've ever seen, but I enjoyed and appreciated it. It's an action film, but stylistically distinctive and coherent, and narratively at least somewhat grounded in reality, so that made it interesting to me.Interesting to hear your thoughts on stuff like Mad Max: Fury Road if you've seen it.
