Welcome to Movie Mondays, where I visit a movie that has somehow eluded me until now. This week, I’m going to talk about the best car chase in the history of cinema… until The French Connection came along, that is. That’s right, let’s talk about Bullitt!
Let’s be clear. I like a good twist. Twists can be fun. Twists get you to look at the story from a new perspective. I enjoy being surprised by a story. However, twists can also get exhausting. Twists can come from out of nowhere. Some twists, the worst kind of twists can be totally boring because you knew there was probably a twist coming and it would’ve been better off not.
So, how do we solve a problem like a plot twist? Not an easy task.
Welcome back to Movie Mondays, my semi-regular feature where I write about movies I haven’t seen before (no matter how old). This week, I have some things to say about a movie that has been around for a while, is apparently a cult classic by a well-known filmmaker, and I only even heard about it for the first time recently. If you follow me on Twitter, you will of course know my new obsession that is The Phantom of the Paradise.
I have said many times how I have a complicated relationship with comic book (specifically superhero) movies. Generally speaking I really like them. Some of them are my favorite movies. I do feel exhausted by them because the market is so saturated with them. I felt amazingly recharged by Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse.
