April 1st

Like Crazy (2011)

Netflix- 1hr. 30min.
First Viewing
A raw, unflinching look at a strained romance gone sour. The leads are convincing, leading to a hard emotional payoff at the end. Felt a bit too much like Blue Valentine at times though, and its fairly repetitive.

A twisty, slow burn mystery that leaves you guessing. The ending is a bit of a letdown, few mystery endings aren't though.

While it does hit familiar territory, The Myth of the American Sleepover accurately conveys the wonder and innocence of youth in an earnest and sincere way.

Well made action flick that make's up for its familiarity with strong performances from the three leads.

Grudge Match (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 53min.
First Viewing
This should've been a fun, nostalgic film highlighted by two legends of the genre. It was not that. It was a poorly directed, thinly written bore with both De Niro and Stallone sleepwalking towards a big paycheck, and seeing them fight at their advanced ages isn't particularly fun; it's kinda sad.

DVD- 1hr. 17min.
First Viewing
While it's commendable for such a well-known director like Soderbergh continue to do experimental films, The Girlfriend Experience almost like something a filmschool student might make. It's boring as hell and incredibly pointless. It was a big story when former porn star Grey was cast in this movie, but really any actress could've played this; her character has, as well as all the others, no depth.

Surprisingly affecting. Having known nothing about the story that the film was based on, it kept me intrigued and guessing until the heartbreaking endpoint. Dench and Coogan are charming as the lead pair, creating an effortless chemistry that invests the audience in this wonderful story.

The leads have some decent chemistry, but the script is so routine and pedestrian that any charisma they bring to the table is suffocated.

First Viewing
Pleasantly surprising. The story has been made before, but Stiller brings enough earnestness and maturity to his performance and direction that the film ended up winning me over. Special mention has to go to Stuart Dryburgh's beautiful, natural cinematography.

A funny and likable coming-of-age dramedy with subtle direction, attentive writing, and effective performances.

Beautifully made, but incredibly confusing. When it's simply left to Jackman and Weisz, it soars. So-so when the focus shifts.
