Quote from: Guybrush on Jan 09, 2023, 08:40 AMWhat's the latest movie you've seen? Let us know and feel free to add a small movie review.The latest film I saw was Eyes Wide Shut. I've seen this before, but that was around the time of its release and I didn't remember much, although I knew what I was getting into.This time around, it made (even) less sense to me. Eyes Wide Shut spoilerWhy would a basic swingers club be so sinister? I'm actually inclined to believe Ziegler's explanation that the swingers had nothing to do with the death of a character we'd previously seen almost ODing at a regular party.However, this makes it a movie about very little. Tom Cruise's character barely gets to explore a slightly sordid underside to society, both poor (the prostitute) and rich (the swingers club), without doing much besides observing.Why does it seem like Nicole Kidman's character dreams about the swingers club which she knows nothing about and why doesn't the movie focus more on her character? She seems to be the one with the most interesting inner life of the two.[close]I felt like the movie had been more interesting if it had been more of an exploration of the world uncovered rather than just an observing of it. It's a bit like a conservative's peek at a daring subject. As it is, it's barely a story worth telling.The performances are okay. Tom Cruise laughs and grins at the strangest moments which seems a little off, but then that's to be expected.

Quote from: Psy-Fi on Jan 14, 2023, 05:56 PMI watched this one yesterday. A good but rather predictable low-budget thriller from 1946, featuring Vincent Price as the head of a private psychiatric hospital.

I love Price - the hammier he gets, the better.So the title is Shock. Is it in any way related to the then modern electro shock treatment therapy?
