Throughout the years I've been fortunate enough to have had many great discussions with fellow film lovers. As is usual in any discussion there are some questions that are a bit more difficult to answer than others. For me however, the one and only question relating to film where there hasn't been a single moment of hesitation to answer is: "Of all the films you have seen, which has the best cinematography?" THIS IS THE ANSWER... #criterioncollection #criterion #thenightofthehunter #charleslaughton #robertmitchum #shelleywinters #lilliangish #movies #film #cinemalovers #cinephilia #cinematography #moviecollection #instafilm #bluray #classicfilm #motionpictures #filmmaking #bluraycollection #moviesarelife #cinematography #filmbuff #blurayaddict #filmlibrary #moviemania #filmnoir #cinema #cinephile #criterionbluray #criterioncollector #cinephilecommunity
Richard Fleischer’s The New Centurions” 1972 Another gritty George C. Scott movie, this time paired with Stacy Keach. The New Centurions is a pretty awesome police procedural film from the director who made Charles Bronson sad for his melons, Richard Fleischer. The movie is really dark and surprising in tone, and it definitely rises far above the traditional pulp of the 70’s cop film. It’s a lot like a downbeat buddy-cop movie, think Dennis Hopper’s “Colors”, or a 70s “To Live and Die in L.A.”. Drinking on the job, violent prostitutes, Stacy Keach gets shot in the stomach, and later dragged alongside a speeding car by a drugged up hooker in sliver pants! “I’ll be damned, silver pants..” A great blu from @twilighttimemovies #thenewcenturions #georgecscott #stacykeach #thriller #policeprocedural #action #actionmovie #70sfilm #70smovies #twilighttimebluray #twilighttime #blurayaddict #bluray #bluraycollector #bluraycollection #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #cultfilm #filmdirectors

#Repost @thisgenius (@get_repost ) ・・・ This is it! The film I waited a loooooong time to see and boy, was it worth it! May, 1980. Man-seob is a widowed Seoul Taxi Driver who lives in a rented apartment with his daughter and is way behind on the rent. Meanwhile, in Tokyo, German journalist Jürgen Hinzpeter hears of the civil unrest happening in Gwangju, South Korea and decides to go there for rare on-the-ground coverage. When Man-seob hears of a foreigner willing to pay 100,000won for a return trip to Gwangju, he immediately rushes to the scene and together, they both set out in the Taxi and literally ride into the Gwangju Uprising, where they meet Jae-sik, an English-speaking student protestor and Tae-soo, a local taxi driver. A Taxi Driver manages to live up to its excellent reputation in every way! The scenes of riotings are especially well-shot. But the heart of the film lies with the characters, and the actors playing them. Asian films usually have a poor track record of casting Western actors in films, but Thomas Kretschmann is excellent as Hinzpeter. However, this is undoubtedly a Song Kang-ho vehicle and he is, as always, absolutely first-rate! This man could pretty much sit on a stage and read me the alphabet and I would still be mesmerised! Is it any wonder that the last three South Korean submissions to the Oscars have all been Song Kang-ho films? An incredible true story that deserves repeat viewing, A Taxi Driver has gotten a stellar bluray release from @smlifedesigngroup. The goodies, including a duplicate Kim Man-seob taxi license and Hinzpeter’s passport, are too good to describe. Oh, and my set came with a card signed by director Jang Hoon ☺️ A Taxi Driver comes with my absolute highest recommendation. #ATaxiDriver #JangHoon #SongKangho #ThomasKretschmann #YooHaejin #RyuJunyeol #Gwangju #GwangjuUprising #riots #protests #koreancinema #worldcinema #smlifedesigngroup #fncaddculture #bluray #limitededition #blurayaddict #bluraycollector #bluraycollection #movie #moviecollector #film #cinema #cinephile #cinephilecommunity #moviesthatmatter

Film Review: The Greatest Showman Directed by first time director Michael Gracey, it’s a star studded spectacle with amazing songs, to make up for a lack of story. The songs are the absolute standout in this film. Benji Pasek and Justin Paul has worked wonders with the songs. My personal favorite is ‘Rewrite the Stars’ but I love majority of the songs (barring the last three). The only thing is that the songs don’t particularly fit with the time period where the story is set as they feel very 21st century pop. They make good songs to listen to separately though! I am aware of the inaccuracies of the film regarding P.T. Barnum, as this is more of a happier look of his life. I think it would work better if it was about someone starting a circus today in general. The biggest issue I have is the plot, which is inconsistent and shallow at times. It had a lot of potential to dive into ideas of racism, family and discrimination but really skimmed over these topics in favour of a feel good musical. The plot also rushes through the first 20ish years in 5 minutes and only focuses on one part of Barnum. Another issue I have is that the songs are often thrown in when the film gets slow, to distract from the lack of a story. Also while ‘This is Me’ is a fantastic song, the buildup to the moment felt rushed and without real development to lead to the big ‘loving yourself’ singalong moment. Production wise, it was very grand, barring from the CGI elephant. The cast was also a mixed bag as only Barnum really got any character development. Hugh Jackman was great and it is so good to see an actor give it his all and pushed to get this film made. I also enjoyed both Zac Efron and Zendaya, although I feel their romance could have been developed further. Rebecca Ferguson, unfortunately wasn’t given much to work with as half her time was ‘singing’ one song and then she was portrayed as a seductress for Barnum. Her character could have been utilised better. The oddities could also have been further explored into, with backstories to make them not all seem like one collective. Saying all that, this film is still fun and I enjoyed the music very much 6/10 Thoughts? Leave em below!

Day 17... Black Panther. Okay so I did really enjoy this movie don’t get me wrong. But everyone was hyping it up so much to where my expectations were really high. Also I saw infinity war before this. So I had REALLY high expectations. So I was sorta let down. It was still a really good movie everyone should still. Like some parts were super badass like the car chase scene. That was wicked. But anyway still a good movie. (8.5-10) . . . . . . #bluray #bluraycollection #blurayaddict #bluraycollector #movies #movie #movienight #cinema #cinematography #cinephile #moviestagram #moviereview #moviereviewer #blackpanther #chadwickboseman
From my latest @kinolorber haul and tonight's feature presentation: "Original Gangstas". Year: 1996. Directed by Larry Cohen. Starring: Fred Williamson, Jim Brown, Pam Grier, Paul Winfield, Ron O'Neal, Robert Forster, Wings Hauser and Richard Roundtree. One of the later Larry Cohen films. In fact, this was the last film he shot/ was released in theaters. The only other credit afterwards of his is a "Masters of Horror" episode. I'm personally getting ever closer finishing off collecting his entire filmography. This was a reunion of the greatest stars of the Blaxploitation era. Williamson, Grier, Brown, O'Neal and Roundtree. Old school Vs. new school. Robert Forster and Wings Hauser also shows up. A street gang called "The Rebels" terrorizes a neighborhood and the old members of said gang are called up to get rid of those punks. Hilarity surely ensues. I know for years, Williamson as tried to make a sequel titled "Old School Gangstas" but inexplicably, can't manage to raise the funds for it which is a damn shame. I'd totally watch it Vs. the "Superfly" remake that came out this weekend. Williamson would have all of my money in a heartbeat. #originalgangstas #larrycohen #fredwilliamson #jimbrown #pamgrier #rononeal #robertforster #wingshauser #richardroundtree #blaxploitation #soulcinema #blackcinema #kinolorber #kinolorberstudioclassics #filmcollection #cinephile #moviecollection #filmcollector #blurayaddict #90scinema #film #movies #cinephile #moviejunkie #moviebuff #blurays #bluray #bluraycollector #bluraylover #blurayfanatic
I was legitimately going to give this movie a miss because I'm a huge baby when it comes to horror and had heard it was terrifying. But because I love this whole Youtubing business and didn't want to be left out of the cool kids club, I braved it last Friday... The movie was not what I was expecting at all!!

@vinegarsyndrome mail days are the best mail days.
#MazeRunnerDeathCure is a fitting end to an entertaining trilogy - this is my second favourite young adult series after The Hunger Games - it’s great to complete the #Steelbook set
Just watched mission impossible for the first time on blu ray. I have heard that this film is really confusing, and they were right, this was really hard to follow. Its weird beacause I was able to watch avatar and was able to understand it first time but not this. Watching it was worth it beacause the ending was so cool. He was litterly hanging on the train for dear life and taking down a helicopter that was trying to kill him at the same time. I'm going to watch this again soon to see if I can understand it more. #bluraycollector #blurayaddiction #bluraycollection #blurayaddict #bluray #movies #missionimpossible #missionimpossible1 #tomcruise #dvd #sunday #homecinema

Just saw jurrasic world fallen Kingdom this Saturday, honestly a bit disappointing. I love jurrasic park but this one was not the best. From the trailer i thought all of it will be on the island, but they were only on there for about 25 mins. Most of it was set In the mansion where jurrasic park was made. Every time the dinosaur destroyed a little bit of it it made me cringe because I knew that was where this all started. The charecters were not that intresting. The special effects were good. In conclusion, the first part on the island was amazing but as the movie went on it got less exciting. I would Rate this 7/10 #bluraycollector #blurayaddiction #bluraycollection #blurayaddict #bluray #movies #dinosours #jurrasicpark #jurrasicworld #jurrasicworldfallenkingdom #cinema

George Romero’s “of the Dead” films are the way to go when you want great zombie films. On to Diary and Survival. I liked Diary of the Dead from what I can remember. Survival of the Dead? Not so much. Maybe my thoughts will change? 🧟‍♂️ #zombies #livingdead #georgeromero #horrorfan #horrorfanatic #horroraddict #horrorlife #horrorlover #horrorlove #horrorjunkie #horrorcollection #horrorcollector #bluray #blurays #blurayjunkie #blurayaddict #bluraycollection #bluraycollector
Now Watching- Amelie 🎬 I LOVED this movie. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to watch it! It’s so sweet and adorable. Amelie is a completely charming character played brilliantly by Audrey Tautou. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful films I’ve seen, I love the way it’s shot - with so much colour and warmth in each frame and beautiful cinematography. It has such a distinct colour palette. Everything about Amelie is creative and whimsical and the whole film is the equivalent of a giant hug. I can definitely see myself rewatching this many many more times. 4.5/5
