“Pourquoi? Why? For what? Why do you walk on the wire? Why do you tempt fate? Why do you risk death. But, I don't think of it this way. I never even say this word, death. La mort. Yes of okay, I said it once, or maybe three times, just now... But watch, I *will* not say it again. Instead, I use the opposite word. Life. For me, to walk on the wire, this is life. C'est la vie.” // The WALK 🌃 (Dir. Robert Zemeckis)

Akira (1988) is an animated post-apocalyptic cyberpunk film directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. A secret military project endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psychic psychopath who can only be stopped by two teenagers and a group of psychics.
Overall Rating: 9/10
Iwata was fantastic as our protagonist, I enjoyed his bravery and gung-ho nature he has throughout the entire film. There are plenty of side characters I don't care for but fit into the world somewhat. The plot has average pacing, I enjoyed Tetsuo's nightmare sequences and the action/fight scenes are tense. The cinematography/animation was ahead of it's time, some animations are unnatural looking now but at the time this came out it was eye catching. This film is so influential and practically blossomed the interest of anime and Japanese pop culture in the western world. The art style is breathtaking and the world feels alive even in a post apocalyptic Tokyo. Akira is a fantastic animated film that has beautiful visuals and entertaining moments throughout. .

Spine #733 : “La dolce vita” (1960) by Federico Fellini. The film follows a week in the life of high society gossip journalist Marcello Rubini (Marcello Mastroianni) and his debauched adventures around Rome. Framed in seven different “episodes” (beginning in the evening and ending at dawn), "La dolce vita" gives viewers an in-depth look at the excessive lives of the rich and famous, as well as Marcello’s dissatisfaction about his own existence. || Although I agree with most people that "8 ½" is truly the Fellini's directorial masterpiece, "La dolce vita" comes incredibly close. The success of this film can be attributed to one thing: the director’s attention to detail. Fellini's world building allows us to fully immerse ourselves into the life of his characters. As one critic put it, “Fellini was more an author than he was a director,” and it really shows here. "La dolce vita" sits at the top of the heap of his cinematic achievements. It isn’t only iconic, but also a film so rich in content—both in the aesthetic sense and in the storytelling. Having Mastroianni as the film's lead is just a plus point. His portrayal of the vain and dissatisfied Rubini was the perfect marriage of an actor and a character that elevates the film to a whole new level of sophistication. #ladolcevita#federicofellini#marcellomastroianni#italiancinema#criterioncollection#criterionchannel#criterionbluray#ilovemovies#bluray#bluraycollection#bluraycollector#blurayaddict#blurayjunkie#bluraymovie#movies#movienight#movietime#film#filmphotography#cinema#cinephiles#cinephilecommunity#cinephile#cinephilia
Spine #971 & #972 : "Police Story" (1985) and "Police Story 2" (1988), both by Jackie Chan. The films chronicle the adventures of Hong Kong super cop Chan Ka Kui (Jackie Chan), who does anything he is physically and mentally capable of doing to catch the bad guys. In the first installment, he battles out Hong Kong's biggest drug syndicate while protecting Selina Fong (Brigitte Lin), the mob boss's secretary, who is also the police's only eye witness. In the second movie, Ka Kui investigates a series of terrorist attacks linked to a large Chinese corporation, all while protecting his girlfriend May (Maggie Cheung), who is being harassed by the drug syndicate from the first film. || I admit that I never fully appreciated Jackie Chan's artistry until owning this Criterion set. He is a master of his craft--light as a feather and fearless in his stunts! The first movie is just sheer joy. Chan entertains by invoking the physicality and comedic timing of such Silent Era legends like Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. The second film isn't quite as good, but it is still great entertainment and worth watching for the daredevil stunts. Although not masterpieces, The "Police Story" movies are a lot fun and a great addition to the collection when looking for something fun and goofy to watch. #policestory#jackiechan#worldcinema#criterioncollection#criterionchannel#criterionbluray#bluray#bluraycollection#bluraycollector#blurayaddict#blurayjunkie#bluraymovie#movies#movienight#movietime#film#filmphotography#cinema#cinematic#cinephiles#cinephilecommunity#cinephile#cinephilia
I’m a sucker for epic crime sagas and extended/directors cuts so today’s mail day brought be Sergio Leone’s final masterpiece, ‘Once Upon a Time in America’. I don’t want to say I’ve never seen this, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen this and as I prepare myself for Scorsese’s 210-minute ‘The Irishman’ this Winter I’ll be basking with joy over the 259-minute cut of this. After some research, the 22 extra minutes added into this cut make some substantial differences from the theatrical cut and this extended version is said to be the best way to view the film. Fun fact: at the end of shooting, Leone had nearly 10 hours of footage shot for this film. Imagine editing that? #Cinephile#Movies#FilmCollector#BluRay#BluRayCollector#Film#Sergioleone#Movie#Cinematic#Cinematography#Epic#CrimeSaga
“I saw a mom who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.” // Looper ⏳ (Dir. Rian Johnson)

X-Men: Apocalypse. 2016. Directed by Bryan Singer.
With today’s Dark Phoenix release, we come to the follow up if the Days of Future Past and actually one of the better of the First Class saga. Introducing more younger versions of our favorite X-Men, Apocalypse continues to feed our nostalgia just as Days of Future Past does. Thankful this film doesn’t venture into any time travel as the previous which makes it much more enjoyable. This film brings us to ancient Egypt and introducing one of the very first supreme mutants, Apocalypse. Played by Oscar Isaac, Apocalypse is possibly the strongest mutant we have seen thus far in the franchise. With Bryan Singer sadly returning for this film it actually stands up a little more then the previous for me. I really enjoyed seeing all the new mutants added to the this roster with Magneto still shinning more then anyone. One of its biggest flaws is the actual time line I was discussing in yesterday’s post. The ages of our mutants start to become questionable by the end of this film which is a massive oversight in my opinion. The post credit scene of this film was completely wasted sadly and didn’t lead to anything after this film. It’s nice to see the direction Logan took after these past couple films and why it’s still considered the best of the franchise. Tomorrow’s post will be all about Dark Phoenix which I am not looking forward to but will give it a fair chance!

Just one Cornetto, give it to me..(⬅️swipe⬅️for more pics). Top effort from @everythingblu91 with this matching set of the Cornetto trilogy. The love and care put into these releases clearly shows that this company go that extra mile for us collectors.
