'Raya and the Last Dragon' Review Thread

Rotten tomatoes 95% as of 78 reviewsCritics concensus: Another gorgeously animated, skillfully voiced entry in the Disney canon, Raya and the Last Dragon continues the studio's increased representation while reaffirming that its classic formula is just as reliable as ever.The warmth shaking the ash from this well-worn story is the gift of family. The family we are born with. The family we make.-theplaylistA batch of familiar ideas winds up feeling relatively fresh.-screencrushAn ambitious family film that will work for all ages, and one that never talks down to its audience while presenting them with an entertaining, thought-provoking story.-rogerebert.comRaya and the Last Dragon might be telling a very familiar story, but between the stunning animation, a cast of lovable characters, and a fresh outlook that is well overdue more than makes up for it being a little predictable.-bleedingcoolFortunately, the journey isn't all that much less enjoyable for being somewhat predictable - if anything, there's satisfaction in its tidiness, like clicking together the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.-mashableThe latest Disney Animation film is an entertaining albeit slight entry into the studio's filmography.-colliderDisney delivers a vibrant action-fantasy epic with another heroine who feels legitimately revolutionary. Raya rules - bring on the next step in the princess evolution.-empireA gorgeous piece of work that features elaborate and ambitious world-building, stunning visuals and an A-team of impressive voice actors.

John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) is one of the greatest thrillers I’ve ever seen and a total master class in tension.

I’ve always found this movie to be completely relentless. It’s such a great precursor to the magic that Carpenter would create later on. He does so much with such a small budget and manages to keep his audience on edge from the opening frame.I think a lot of the tension has to do with his score. Carpenter created some amazing scores early on his career. The Halloween theme is obviously his most popular, Escape from New York and The Fog are quintessential Carpenter, but the score in this film does a fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of unease from the very beginning.Carpenter also creates a setting of “anything goes” with the murder of the cute kid in the first 30 minutes (not to mention, that kid was Kim Richards of Disney’s Escape to Witch Mountain fame). He basically gives his audience the ultimate middle finger with that death. Anything goes, and Carpenter is calling the shots.What I love most about this movie is when the precinct is actually being “assaulted.” Carpenter keeps most of the baddies in the shadows giving them an uncompromisingly sinister look. They just keep coming no matter what. They’re in every corner and the odds are always against our protagonists. There really isn’t any moments where we feel like the good guys have a standing chance which just increases the tension to an infinite degree.I caught this movie late in my movie buff life. I’ve always been a fan of Carpenter but this one had always managed to fly under my radar. A few years ago I finally sat down and watched it and.... wow, I was blown away. Carpenter did so much with so little (as he would often do with most of his movies). If you haven’t checked this one out, I highly recommend it. Even if you’re not a fan of Carpenter, this is a fantastic and unrelenting thriller.Side note: I love Nancy Kyes even though she didn’t do much outside of Carpenter movies. I’ve learned that the actress had a problem with anxiety which is why she didn’t do much in front of the camera but Carpenter found a way to utilize her talents so well. She does a great job in this one as well as anything else she did that was Carpenter related. via /r/movies

Lionel Matthews

Lionel Matthews.
Lionel Matthews (15 August 1912 – 2 March 1944) was an Australian Army officer during World War II who was posthumously awarded the George Cross, the highest non-combat award for heroism for members of the Australian armed forces at the time. Matthews served in the 27th Brigade during the Malayan campaign, and at the surrender of Singapore in 1942 became a prisoner of war (POW). He was awarded the Military Cross for courage, energy and ability under fire during this fighting. At Sandakan POW camp Matthews established an intelligence network, collecting information, weapons, medical supplies and radio parts, and making contact with organisations outside the camp. The group was betrayed, and Matthews was arrested, beaten, tortured and starved. He refused to provide any information, and was executed by firing squad. After the war he was awarded the George Cross in recognition of his gallant and distinguished services while in Japanese hands.

[spoilers] The King's Speech (2010) - just something I noticed

I watched it for the third time or so today.It really is a masterpiece of externally demonstrating ("showing") audiences the importance of speech.The way speech affects other peoples' perception of you is shown in so many little ways that I had not noticed before, such as:When Elizabeth (George's wife) initally meets Lionel, she doesn't use received pronunciation. After he learns her true identity, she reverts back to using it; showing how closely even subtle changes in speech are associated with rank and perception.When Lionel is auditioning for King Lear, he stammers briefly, saying "wi--with--with". The people he is auditioning for immediately stop him. They point out his diction, and remark on his Australian accent. This demonstrates: 1. Stutters can be associated with fear and anxiety, 2. A stutter can damage other peoples' confidence in and perception of you, 3. How you speak can define your "role" in society, just like how he spoke prevented him from becoming "king" (with obvious parallels to how George's stutter may threaten his role as king.)Anyway, just wanted to share! I'm still in the middle of watching it so I might edit this post as I go along. via /r/movies

Phone Booth (2002) - A totally forgotten film with Colin Farrell at its best needs a rewatch

I'm not sure why the movie got so forgotten, but that shouldn't have happened. Phone Booth is a classic chamber play that is almost exclusively performed by Colin Farrell in an old phone booth in New York.Joel Schumacher (director), Matthew Libatique ( cinematography) and Larry Cohen (script) keep the tension high throughout the film and are masters at leaving out useless things. With a running time of almost 80 minutes, this makes for an extremely entertaining experience. After seeing the film again after almost 20 years, I can only recommend giving it another chance. You will not regret it. via /r/movies

Interstate 70 in Colorado

Interstate 70 in Colorado.
Interstate 70 passes through Colorado on its route between its western terminus at Cove Fort, Utah, and its eastern at Baltimore, Maryland. In western Colorado, the highway connects the metropolitan areas of Grand Junction and Denver via a route through the Rocky Mountains. Bicycles are allowed on those stretches of I-70 in the Rockies where no other through route exists. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) lists the construction of I-70 among the engineering marvels undertaken in the Interstate Highway system. The Eisenhower Tunnel, with a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet (3,401 m) and length of 1.7 miles (2.7 km), is the longest mountain tunnel and highest point along the Interstate Highway System. The portion through Glenwood Canyon was completed on October 14, 1992, one of the final pieces of the Interstate Highway System to open to traffic, and one of the most expensive rural highways per mile built in the United States.

Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) has gone through more traumatic horrors in the Alien Franchise that most characters in a film series don't

I just did a marathon of the first four movies, the Alien Quadrilogy and kept track of all that Sigourney Weaver character goes through in the course of 4 films.To start even when we first meet her, she is in space having left her 11 year old or so daughter at home. Even with her survival she will never see her daughter or anyone from home ever again. Ever. The first film is to the point and beautiful, an alien comes on board she has to witness it burst out of her buddies chest killing him, all her teammates are killed so she is left alone with a cat to fight off an ugly scar alien herself. Its traumatic. Also the cyborg they brought along she thought she could trust turned on them..but she makes it out aliveOnly to wake up in the sequel 57 years later. She finds out her daughter who was 66 just died at home before she awoke. She's talked into going to a colony by another person who will betray her just to fight off more aliens. Everyone she gets to know is killed...the two survivors HIcks and little girl Newt she goes back into danger multiple times to save and risk her life to save the little girl multiple times because of a mother/daughter connection to make it to Safety...Just to find both were killed off screen while she was in orbit. All that time and energy spent bonding with a little girl who lost her entire family just for her to be lost just like that...oh also Ripley is now pregnant with an alien and is the only woman on an all male prison planet? Again everyone she meets or in case of a Lannister develops feelings for killed for her to survive just to realize she must kill herself now. After all the effort of several films to survive she now wants nothing more but to die, though its the only option and would put her at peace finally in a way...Just to be woken (cloned) again in 4th film. She finally made peace to die and now they bring her back again except she's not fully herself and she birthed an alien.. the fact its also 200 years in the future is also probably exhausting as well but again she must fight and kill her alien children and finally does make it to earth after hundreds of years except she's not really herself and earth is nothing like earth to her by now anyway.Like, damn, her story has a lot of suffering. via /r/movies
