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.

Occasionally pretty scary, but mostly an exercise in bloody shock violence. Doesn't come close to the original.

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.

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.

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.

Competently made with a strong cast, Welcome to the Punch is a fun but incredibly predictable movie.

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.

While there are some solid scares, there's nothing that really popped out to me as being inventive or fresh.

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.

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

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.

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.
