Food Movies: The Topic

Recommended Posts

I watched it the other night.  I liked it but did expect more from the back ground story.  Worth watching whilst I finished my bottle of wine.;)

Anyone watched Burnt yet?  I can't comment completely because I've tried twice to watch it and have missed the first half both times.  I found the parts about the Michelin Star people and how you can tell they are there interesting (if that stuff is all true).

 

I saw it in the theater. IMO, it needed a fuller story or more side plots or something. Kind of simplistic in some ways.

I can't remember who said that eating food prepared by another is an act of submission.

Cook Off! -Made in 2007 but not released until November 2017. I think they only released it to cash in on Melissa McCarthy's rise to fame, particularly her regular appearances on SNL. This film is about the contestants in a competition where they are tasked to use a dairy replacement product. It's mostly about personalities, the food products are just props made of mixing various commercial convenience together. I found it simplistic, silly, and a waste of time.

^^ I don't see Phantom Thread as a food movie at all. Yes, food plays a role. So does fashion, which has an even bigger role, yet I wouldn't call it a fashion movie.

I offer this without comment as I haven't seen the movie, but will be looking out for it.
 

 

Thanks for the link to that article!  I also enjoyed reading this one that was linked to:  How Phantom Thread Made Toast Irritating

I'm planning to see Phantom Thread this week and usually avoid reading commentary until after I've seen the film but I'm glad I read both of these articles first.

Yesterday home doing paperwork with the TV on in the background - rediscovered Cooking with Stella a Canadian film that I had enjoyed watching in the past.

Speaking of a  waste of time, Bakery in Brooklyn on Hulu.  Most of the food stuff made no sense and/or was cringe-worthy (technique-wise) to watch.  Two thumbs down.
