Quickie: Bad Education, Ford v Ferrari, Crazy World #TIFF19


So I was Toronto Film Festival I… movies! One of them I saw was the new Cory Finley movie, “Bad Education” The film stars Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney and they’re both great This is the same director as Thoroughbreds in 2017 although this time, he doesn’t have a writing credit. I really enjoyed Thoroughbreds, but this is a very different film This one has a lot more polish and production value But it comes at the expense of the personality Thoroughbreds is a movie that–aside from some derivative soundtrack choices felt very unique. And while Bad Education is still a very well-presented and entertaining film… it doesn’t really stick out as much in terms of a memorable experience. The movie is a true story about the largest public school embezzlement scandal in the U.S. The characters are really fun to watch and it’s even more fun to watch everything kind of implode upon itself This is a very solid and well-made professional movie It’s well shot. It’s well acted. It has good music. So check this one out whenever you can and I’m giving it a seven out of ten. Another film I saw was Ford v Ferrari directed by James Mangold He’s the same director as Logan, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line, et cetera. In terms of directing, this movie was pretty great There’s no real flaws that stick out to me in that sense There are a lot of exhilarating driving sequences The camera work was all very professional and you can really feel the budget in the production value The performances were great–especially that of Christian Bale Him and Matt Damon’s character played off of each other very well It was always fun to watch them interact on screen Although it didn’t happen as often as I would have expected Now this movie is two-and-a-half hours long and I’m not sure I feel as though it was entirely justified If every aspect of the film is amazing and it’s entertaining throughout Then the longer, the better! But much of it was just a really cookie-cutter, clichéd, overly-pandering inaccessible Oscar-bait movie. There are things I really like about the presentation but stretching out a story that’s predictable at every turn isn’t really that interesting to me Some of the presented conflicts felt really cheesy Some of the characters feel incredibly cartoonish One of them was so annoyingly one-dimensional, it felt as though he would have worked better in a Robert Rodriguez kids’ movie Unfortunately, there’s often a trade off with professional and high-production-value films where many of the aspects wind up feeling as though the movie was just created soulessly in a factory At the end of the day, this movie’s kind of forgettable It was an enjoyable experience to watch it in theaters and if you’re going to watch it anyway, then choose that over the home video release But it’s not one that I’ll be rushing back to at any point in time. I don’t think I’m ever going to see it again, really It’ll likely be nominated for some Oscars and I’m sure a lot of people will really enjoy it Anyway, check this one out, if you want, but don’t expect a masterpiece and I’m giving this one a six out of ten. Another film I saw was “Crazy World” the new Wakaliwood “supa action movie!” For those of you not aware, there is an action movie studio in the slums of Uganda making some pretty entertaining movies. I’ve got the double-feature Blu-ray for “Who Killed Captain Alex” and “Bad Black” and I would suggest you check those out because they are loads of fun! Now, obviously, the budgets on these films are incredibly low but what makes them entertaining is just how wacky and ridiculous they are Their films are narrated over top of with what they call a “video joker” So VJ EMMIE essentially acts as a hype man that is talking about the film and also kind of making fun of it as it’s happening They’ve got a really great sense of humor and it makes it a perfect experience to watch with friends The films that you’d buy from them come with the VJ EMMIE narration, but what was crazy was that at TIFF, they actually had him doing it live It was a wild experience and a perfect addition to the “Midnight Madness” programming Thank you, Peter Kuplowski for getting that setup, because it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime event I actually went into a bit more detail over what the live experience was like in this “Sardonicast” episode that will be linked in the description and at the end of the video It’s at the 8:38 mark, but I’ll just time stamp it in the link, I guess Anyway, definitely check this one out, as it is an absolute blast to watch You can also buy “Who Killed Captain Alex” and “Bad Black” from their website I’m not really sure how to give this a number out of ten. It’s kind of a meme movie in that sense. I can’t seem to find it on IMDB, so whenever that gets create, I’ll rate it a ten there I mean, I love it and I don’t know what to rate it, so… why not? I’ve got one more of these TIFF videos coming for ya and a bunch of other videos I’m working on My 2007 list, a commentary track… thing, a bunch of stuff So stay tuned. Thank you! Buh-bye!

    {thoroughbreds spoilers}

    does anyone know why Thoroughbreds was rated R? is it cause they say fuck? I thought it would be because of the murder, but it happens off-screen… why was it rated R?

    Ford v Ferrari better not get a bunch of nominees outside of some technical categories. That would be a disaster.

  16. Hungry Moose says:

    I've been waiting for Ford v Ferrari for years. This thing was in the rumor mill for years and when the first trailer dropped me and my friends nearly lost our goddamn minds. I think I've seen damn near every documentary about the actual story and I hope the film stays true to how amazing the story is. I mean at this point, the story of Carrol Shelby and the inception of the original Ford GT40 is American legend, like John Henry and Billy the Kid. I can see characters like Enzo Ferrari and Henry Ford II being strange because they were strange men in real life. By the 1960s Enzo was automotive royalty, and Henry Ford II was known to be a very stubborn and sheltered man because he was raised by the original Henry Ford and kept out of the public after one of Ford's other grandsons was killed in a Lindburgh-esque kidnapping attempt. Lee Iacoca goes into a lot of detail about how hard Ford II was to work with in his autobiography. I'm glad that you found it good enough to give it a 6/10, and I hope it appeals to gearheads and Ford fans like me like they promised us all these years.

  30. flaco says:

    Adum will eventually metamorphisize into the entire matter and structure of Toronto Film Festival, where all the movies are exactly the same but his face is plastered all over them

  31. Patient Ache says:

    This film was fucking incredible, my favourite film of the year, performances made me jizz my pants and the cinematography was exquisite, I hope this gets best picture, and I'm giving this movie a 6 out of 10, its definitely not a 7 and it's closer to a 5 but that's my rating

    There's something really heartwarming knowing that Wakaliwood got to present at TIFF.

  44. dunnowy123 says:

    WHAT?! I knew I missed out on the live narration but I also missed out on potentially glimpsing this Gay God? FUCK!

    I saw Crazy World the next day, still one of the best experiences I've ever had in a movie theater. I can only imagine how much more fun it would have been at Midnight Madness.

  45. Mariana V says:

    That intro was superb, taking the top comments Into account while making the rest of us giggle

  46. Ranger McClure says:

  88. Your Dad says:

    how dare you give godzilla 2014 a higher score than ford v ferrari

  89. Adam Cheek says:

    As a racing fan, FvF might appeal even more to me, but the big issue for me (as a racing fan) is that the "Daytona" scene is very distractingly obviously Auto Club Speedway – the blue walls are the dead giveaway, as is the scoring pylon's location and smaller grandstands

  90. Noah Biondi says:

    Ford v Ferrari deserves higher than a 6/10.

  91. Callum Johnston says:

    I would love a yms type channel on pornhub to help me find the top shelf shit

  92. Nicolas Andres says:

  94. HE13272326 says:

    What i learned from Crazy World: German tourists are delicious!

  95. Kaeden Hewitt says:

    Ford v Ferrari is amazing if your a car enthusiast, they got a lot of stuff spot on.

  96. lyn o says:

    i can already tell that ford v ferrari is shaping up to be SCOTT’S LOCKOFTHEWEEK

  97. Dylan Drosick says:

    Whats with Bad Education being so weird to find info on, still?

  98. Garret S says:

    You can really get that sense with Ford v Ferrari in the first 20 minutes. I literally just stopped watching it to check your review to see if it was going to get any better.
