    The Neon Demon



    Only God Forgives (got trashed critically but god damnit it looks like it should be good)



    Mute (also supposed to suck, but it's the spiritual successor to Moon which I loved)



    Mandy (think I'm gonna watch this regardless)



    First Man

    Isle of Dogs

    Barry (HBO series)

    True Detective S3

    that Ted Bundy documentary on Netflix

    + a bunch of other shit I'm forgetting now


    we hardly ever watch movies or TV so I'm trying to narrow it down

    Didn't watch any of the trailers but I've already seen them for Mandy + heard it was terrific and have been meaning to watch it myself

    Isle of Dogs was super forgettable, and I speak Japanese so it was automatically more interesting for me than it would be if the peripheral characters spoke some other language, so I'd give that one a hard veto if you're determined to narrow it down

    People would have to be saying some outlandish shit about True Detective S03 (and it would have to be done running) for me to even consider it after the final episode of season I and the drudgery of season II (which in fairness I only got two episodes into) but ymmv

    I heard pass on the Ted Bundy tapes unless you didn’t know any about him and his rampage at all, because it doesn’t add anything new + it will probably just make you feel bad

    all of those are terrible except Mandy and maybe Neon Deon cause I haven't seen it.

    Mute was the worst movie ive ever watched

    isle of dogs was fine, i guess.

    Neon Demon looks like Black Swan directed by the director of Drive, which I guess could be ok but I don't get a strong sense one way or the other from the trailer

    Only God Forgives looks like Drive without the 80s aesthetic which would not be a good thing

    Mute looks like it could be a good movie with an uninspired trailer, but it's hard to tell. It also looks like it could just be an is-he-isn't he about a guy actually being a robot

    Mandy is an awesome psychedelic drug fueled homage to 70s and 80s art house horror, that is a must watch, cant emphasize @AgelessDrifter post enough.

    pretty much written and only could be performed for and by nick cage at his craziest.

    Neon Demon & Only God Forgives - So wanted to like these, i dont think they're as bad as the bad press given them but they're tough to like without just wanting to be pretentious movie film student. The trailers are better than the movies is the problem. Refn's operatic tone that made drive awesome makes those 2 movies last 45 minutes longer than they needed.
    Neon Demon is the better, Only God Forgives is ok but just boring filler between a handful of cool scenes (which honestly is a lot of mafia movies in the end)


    I'm a Wes Anderson fan boy for sure but havn't cared much for the 2 stop motion ones he's done, but Isle of Dogs is better than the fox one, worth watching but wouldnt put any rush to it.


    Digging True Detective more than season 2 but still no where near as engaging as 1.

    I watched first few episodes of Barry and liked but lost track and honestly havn't felt like i've missed it.


    Didnt know about that Mute but fuck was Moon awesome, i'm pulling that one up asap tomorrow.
