I loved Way of the Dragon when I first saw it as a young child. I realize now that this movie is very much like an anime before Animes were big. There was so much to love back in the day but I wasn't sure how I would receive the movie today. As with many movies that I re-watch from the past, there's a chance it might suck. I was willing to risk my memory of this movie to give it another watch.
I had thought I had written a review for Get Out a while back but then I realized that I didn't start writing reviews until 2018. This movie came out in 2017. When I first saw this movie I was dumbfounded by the brilliance of how Jordan Peele had married race relations and horror. Not only did he do this but he did it in the most unexpected manner.
I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to the sport of racing. There's a few race car drivers that I know of but I have no clue what race car drivers have to go through in order to become a professional. That being said there's some information in this documentary that flew way over my head. I'm sure it will fly over a lot of people's heads as well when you watch this film.
Parasite has been talked about by a ton of people despite being Korean. I found that particularly interesting because I've never heard so much buzz for a non-European language movie since Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. It's a breathe of fresh air for Asian cinema because it delves not in a historical or fantasy based story. It's a well polished modern story!
Re-watching movies from the past is kind of a gamble for me. I risk the chance of ruining a classic for myself. I did this with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. I used to love that movie but watching it today I realize it's not quite the movie I remembered it to be.
I didn't expect to see a Taylor Swift documentary on Netflix so soon. It seems like nowadays popular stars are making documentaries about themselves on popular streaming services. I then realized wow Taylor Swift has been popular for a long period of time. The same goes for a ton of the stars that are streaming their biographies.
