Thought it was a good Sci Fi flick but nothing that really blow me away. The cinematography and dystopia setting was good along with the action scenes and parallels to contemporary society as it relates to immigration. Overall rating 6.3.

WW2 from a German perspective and their war with Russia centering on Stalingrad. Not particularly laudable for its action scenes but more for its exploration of soldiers at war. Questions of sacrifice,duty,humanity and survival are most salient. Overall rating 6.8.

Grade A comedy. The costumes, make up, set and art direction are fantastic creating a stylish presentation of the seventies. The chemistry between Russel Crowe and Gosling is impeccable with Gosling's character standing out. Comedy, crime and action a really devilish combination. Angourie Rice who plays 13 year old Holly March is witty and a natural in front the camera. Overall rating 8.5

The Revenant (2015)





Way too drawn out. The 2 hour 30 minute run time is ridiculous and unnecessary. The whole thing was a bore that made my head hurt. The best thing was cinematography and location but the story was completely dead and hollow like that horse Glass climbs into. The movie was just a simple revenge flick nothing special about it. I am a usual DiCaprio fan but this performance in this movie was not deserving of the Oscar he received. This is the second film by Alejandro González Iñárritu I watched(Birdman) which was a complete bore and people seemed to enjoy. Waste of over two hours. Overall rating 3.0

A very good war film without a focus on the scenes of war. The bombing of Berlin thunders throughout the entire movie never giving you a feeling of safety as we are bunkered down with a increasingly deranged Fuhrer. Bruno Ganz's portrayal of Hitler is a masterclass of acting where subtly and nuance is very much key along with the explosive outburst Hitler is known for.The voice, walk and Parkinson's shake of the hand give off the embodiment of the man himself. I also particularly liked the costuming and how the story digs into the mentally of Hitler, his loyal officers, those close to him like Eva Braun and the German people. An all round good movie with a strong cast of supporting actors. Overall rating 7.0.

The screenplay is one of the most original I’ve seen and the film itself creative and innovative with the use of steady cameras and capturing the film within a film. On the surface it follows the sociopathic Bloom (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) who goes to extremes to get what he wants. Digging a little deeper we see a critque of news media and what is deemed “new worthy”. Also, comparisons with news and Hollywood where the story and narrative are most important. Gyllenhaal's performance is fantastic and worth the time. Overall rating. 7.2

Selma (2014)
Jan 18th



A very good historical drama that shows aspect’s of King’s life that are differing from the saintly image he is often cloaked in. Even leaders are human and this film does a good job of showing King’s weakness as well as his strengths. David Oyelowo plays a very good leading role as Dr. King especially in his delivery of rousing speeches as well as in the more quiet moments with his wife or close advisors. In supporting roles Tom Wilkinson, Stephan James and Tim Roth who play Lyndon Johnson, John Lewis and George Wallace respectively are all exceptional in their delivery and performance on screen. The musical choices bring out the emotion of select scenes that stirs your very own emotions when it is aligned with images of brutality and corruption. The creative decisions in direction and cinematography flow very well to give you a film that is powerful and artistic. Overall rating 7.5

Wiki Overview: The film focuses on the lives of professional wrestlers outside of the ring, primarily Mick Foley, Terry Funk, and Jake Roberts, as well as some aspiring wrestlers. It focuses on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) during its rise in popularity, and many other independent wrestlers and organizations.

My take: I watched this movie with hopes that it would go more in depth somehow. For example, shitty promotions, horrible shows, injury (more than just glancing by), rehabilitation, drugs including steroids. Yet, the director is not the best at getting the substance that would make this a great documentary. He seems to be hanging around the promotions and trying to make friends instead of asking questions. Also, he is too involved on screen without offering anything to the scene The basic editing (leaving in irrelevant footage like the black wrestler's movie opportunity) and musical choices are terrible frankly and the documentary presents itself like a low budget fan made video. A rare good moment but you could get the same information by just watching the Wrestler with its glaring similarities or doing a bit of reading if you're interested with life behind the scenes. Overall it came off amateurish, opportunist and even staged in some parts. Overall rating 3.9.

Setting aside the fact I have this thing for both Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode since seeing them in Chasing Liberty together when I was much younger this film is a really cheesy romance filled with cliche,bad acting from the support cast and terrible editing that makes itself noticed. Add in some rock music and you have a movie that looks like a soap opera or Saved by the Bell episode. Despite all the cheese you can find some not so smelly scenes in between. Overall rating 4.7.

I think the story is too concerned with the white lead character's sexual vices then a story about Uganda and Idi Amin. Overall I judged it as another white centered movie about Africa. I found Whittaker's performance forced and flat. He seemed to play stereotypes of what was expected of a Idi Amin character than delving in the character. The movie is not the worst thing but it's not the best either. It disappoints by not delving into more serious story. It gives you a fictional surface without showing anything deeper. 5.0

Most visually beautiful animated film. Slowed paced in parts but awe inspiring on account of the world created around the fully fleshed characters. A compulsory viewing.

Coming at the end of the Roaring Twenties crazily this is one of the most sensual movies I have ever seen. Louise Brookes is irresistible. The only problem is that the director could have cut this movie in half, it's run time was too much for the basic plot. 6.0

Ugh! Why am I caught in this vortex of long run times with not interesting enough plots. I saw the high listal rating and thought it worth it but not at all. Good cinematography and acting but the pacifist humanist storyline is not for me especially with the glaring contradiction of how can we humanize involuntary exploitation. I understand the whole duplicity of man and following your beliefs under extreme pressure but I just found myself wanting to tell the lead character "okay just cut the fucking shit!" 5.5

Keeves is still one dull motherfucker but not even him could ruin this awesome film. On the other hand Hugo Weaving "Mr Smith" and Laurence Fishburne "Morpheus" are spectacular.Overall the movie is straight badassery topped with sci fi dystopia, gaudy direction and visual effects and philosophical questions. A compulsory view. 8.6. Rewatched on May 10... truly great concept and action.

Were people really calling for this movie to receive Oscar nominations. The screenplay shouldn't even have been nominated. Besides the music scenes the entire movie is flat and the acting is sub par.Maybe Ice Cube's son could be given a pass because he loves so much like his father it's hard not to make his character believable but the rest are just shit. Also, the movie seemed biased towards Dre and Ice Cube coming off as a revisioning of history. Given the fact that both their production companies were involved it seems those with the money and power write history again. Wouldn't recommend. 5.0

The debauchary just goes on and on until it becomes torture. Couldn't wait for it to finish. A lot funnier in retrospect than when going through the marathon of drugs and sex.

Kiera Knightly is so pretty and skinny(in a lovely way)in this movie and honestly that's the best thing about Atonement. Melodramatic and a failed romance story mixed up with a war story and stream of consciousness.

A non linear surrealist film without any subject or plot holding them together. If you want to see something of Bunel's dreams this movie is for you but just not for me. Self indulgence of an old man.
