Welcome to Part 2 everyone! Worse than the original but still better than the cluster-f*** that the third installment will be. >_>

@Johnny Blaque

Veteran - I felt a similar way. It had no identity and tried to do too many styles.

26 Years - There are quite a few movies about the Gwangju Massacre. A Taxi Driver (buddy comedy) and A Petal (really f***ing depressing) are fantastic movies. Highly recommend. The reception of the massacre is pretty standard. The more liberal provinces, especially where Gwangju is located, look at it as a dark time and still harbor resentment towards the Korean leaders and American leaders at the time. The more conservative provinces/people treat it like it was necessary as those protesters were violent and blah-blah-blah.

The Villainess- Glad you liked it. I could handle it because the camerawork made me nauseous.

Sorry guys, didn't mean to end the last thread.

And yeah 26 years was great. I'll def check out those other movies. This is a interesting subject. I wondered how the public reacted to it, thank you. I want to see how thry made a comedy out of it.

And with the Villianess I love those twisty camera moves. Like Hardcore Henry is a movie I've watched a bunch of times and while it's a videogame, the opening cutscene from Metal Gear Solid:Ground Zeroes is directed masterfully.

It gets kinda dark at times but it still has a lighthearted feel to it. It's based on a true story to boot. Like the two leads were real people.

Ha, I love this. In five words, Batman turns being a poser into the purest badass philosophy imaginable.

In Japan, Shoplifters has now grossed more than Black Panther and Deadpool 2. Combined.

The Batman animated comic was very smart and mature in the intellectual sense.

The animated series was not without its classic film influences as well. I remember an episode that was basically lifting plot points out of Angels with Dirty Faces.

I highly agree with A Taxi Driver. That was an incredible film, and I enjoyed every moment of it.
Have a good day!
