ForumMusic/Movies/TV/Books ► J-Rob's Weekly TV/Movie Suggestion
This week's suggestion is the crime thriller No Sudden Move, which just premiered on HBO MAX. The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Jon Hamm, Amy Seimetz, Brendan Fraser, Kieran Culkin and Ray Liotta. Del Toro is one of my top 5 favorite actors ever. At this point, Soderbergh could probably direct a passable heist movie in his sleep, but this is much better than passable. Great dialogue, great production design and all together very good movie.

4/5 J-Stars

Del Toro is one of my top 5 favorite actors ever and it was nice to see Brendan Frasier who I'm very sympathetic towards given his weight gain due to a terrible back injury. At this point, Soderbergh could probably direct a passable heist movie in his sleep, but this is much better than passable. Great dialogue, great production design and all together very good movie.

scott pilgrim vs the world is a good movie if you read the comics, or like video games, or indie rock. the one scene where he punches matthew patel irritates me he doesn't lean into the punch which drastically reduces its power and you run the risk of throwing your back if you punch with that posture

edit: also punching in the air is very unrealistic you need leverage to get good force in a punch and in the air, no such leverage exists. your punches will be very, very weak.
  
Scott is not a trained fighter, he is a skinny loser nerd. Also people explode into showers of coins when they die and someone punches someone else so good the highlights come out of their hair. I would not say that movie is grounded in realistic physics. It follows Rule of Cool.
  
Little known fact, human flesh turns into legal tender if it takes enough damage. Just the other day I stubbed my toe and screamed in agony as I watched it disintegrate into a bunch of coins. The worst part was they were all Chuck E Cheez tokens too, so I couldn't even cash them in for anything.

Something costing an arm and a leg can be taken quite literally; there's a specific amount of coinage each each one converts to if you chop them off. If you're interested in finding out exactly how much, it's shouldn't be hard so long as you all keep your chainsaws close by.
  
Wat?

And does that come from any movie?
  
Its from Steel Magnolias.

No, you could sell them to little children behind your local Chuck-E-Cheese for a profit.
  
But they don't exist anymore. They're out of business
  
Charles Entertainment Cheese is still in biness
  
Yeah, somehow they survived the pandemic. I wished they wouldn't have.
  
eighth grade is an absolute banger of a movie to watch in eighth grade (which i shouldve done) but you can watch it if youre older too. its most relevant now and will become dated really quickly. it stars the voice of agnes from despicable me. its immensely impressive just how accurately the director of the movie manages to capture what its like to actually be an eighth grader. scarily relatable. youll see if you watch it.
