"I was staring through the cage of those meticulous ink strokes - at an absolute beauty."

Amadeus is a film that bears numerous adjectives with self-confidence: this film is stunning, beautiful, wonderful, powerful, amazing, incredible - and anything stemming off from these words. It's a tremendously rare event when a masterpiece like Amadeus is made; a remarkable movie of jealousy ... read more

I avoided this film for years, under the assumption that it's subject matter was just something that I would absolutely no interest in.
Then one day, as it aired on one of those "classic" movie channels on T.V., I decided to finally give it a chance, just to see what all that Oscar hype back in '84 was all about.
Turns out, this film isn't so much a historical retelling of classical... read more

Antonio Salieri believes that Mozart's music is divine. He wishes he was himself as good a musician as Mozart so that he can praise the Lord through composing. But he can't understand why God favored Mozart, such a vulgar creature, to be his instrument. Salieri's envy has made him an enemy of God whose greatness was evident in Mozart. He is set to take revenge.

A classic

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. First of all, I’m pretty sure that most people would think that ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest’ has been the best movie directed by Milos Forman but, the more I think about it, the more I believe that this movie might be actually slightly overrated (in fact, I need to re-watch this movie as well). In fact, in my opinion, this classic, which was released almost 10 years after ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest’ and which also managed to win the Best Picture Academy Award, was even better and I believe it is in fact the Magnum Opus of this director. Indeed, it is easily one of the most fascinating and original biopics ever made and, even though Forman would be making al” read more

2017: Films I've Watched in January (26 movies items)

"First Watched 1/1/2017 It might take quite a few liberties in terms of historical accuracy but it just has this energy, passion, and presentation from the players and the world they have built around them to show case. Every single actor big and small brings 110 percent in their performances and the costumes (I got a thing for chicks in powdered wigs X3) and set designs and musical scores are incredible! This is just one of those films where the people in front of the camera and behind it lov"
