Contact (1997)

Sexy muthafucka.
DVD- 2hrs. 29min.
First Viewing
Despite being a bit plodding at times, and John Hurt's character providing the most improbable bit of "coincidence" in the history of cinema, this is still a strong film. Expertly illustrates the mysteries beyond our reach and our desire to understand them.

Evil Dead (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 31min.
First Viewing
Occasionally pretty scary, but mostly an exercise in bloody shock violence. Doesn't come close to the original.

Well made and well-intentioned, but slow and boring.

People who added this item 629 Average listal rating (380 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7

DVD- 1hr. 49min.
First Viewing
The premise should yield some sort of moral resonance for the audience, but the screenplay's obviousness spoils much of the story. Still, it looks beautiful and the cast is great.
BradWesley123's rating:
People who added this item 257 Average listal rating (173 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.7

DVD- 1hr. 31min.
First Viewing
It's loud, violent and dumb as hell, but it's also occasionally thrilling and fun. Meh.

Trance (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 41min.
First Viewing
Stylish and twisty, Trance keeps the shocks coming, but occasionally veers into too convoluted waters. The cast is strong, the direction solid, and the camerawork splendid.
BradWesley123's rating:
People who added this item 350 Average listal rating (174 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 5.9
To the Wonder (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 53min.
First Viewing
So fucking boring. Malick goes even more experimental than he did with The Tree of Life to incredibly diminishing results. It borders on self-parody more than once. The only reason I sat through the film was because of the admittedly beautiful cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki.
BradWesley123's rating:
People who added this item 195 Average listal rating (119 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.1

DVD- 1hr. 39min.
First Viewing
Competently made with a strong cast, Welcome to the Punch is a fun but incredibly predictable movie.

Manhattan (2021)

Netflix- 1hr. 36min.
First Viewing
Possibly Allen's best work. Coveys the humor, beauty, fear, and unpredictability of love in possibly the most authentic way ever. Great cast, direction, script and cinematography.

Fun movie with a cast at the top of their games, and a very witty script.

Funny and sweet with some great performances, but the ending just left me cold. I mean, I get it, but still.

Sinister (2012)

DVD- 1hr. 50min.
First Viewing
While there are some solid scares, there's nothing that really popped out to me as being inventive or fresh.

People who added this item 168 Average listal rating (101 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4

DVD- 2hrs. 1min.
First Viewing
Like most of Redford's output as of late, it plays like a live action book. There's nothing wrong with that, but it just never popped. The cast is quite strong though, and the story's pretty intriguing.

DVD- 2hrs. 22min.

While it does stumble a bit in the third act, this is a smart, ambitious movie about family, fatherhood, and fate.

Brothers (2009)

DVD- 1hr. 45min.
First Viewing
Basically a character piece, but a well made one. The cast is great with Gyllenhaal and Portman doing strong work, and Tobey Maguire giving a career best performance.

The Sapphires (2012)

DVD- 1hr. 39min.

Likable comedy with a solid cast and good music.

Epic (2013)

DVD- 1hr. 42min.
First Viewing
Decently animated but oddly paced, poorly written and just flat-out boring.
BradWesley123's rating:
People who added this item 617 Average listal rating (402 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.4
Mud (2013)

DVD- 2hrs. 10min.
First Viewing
Misleadingly promoted as an action-thriller; this is actually a compelling story about the thing we're willing to do to give and receive love. Great cast, smart writing, and subtle direction make this a pleasant surprise.

Pretty much every possesion movie thrown into a blender, except there's a rabbi here instead of a priest.
