Directed by: J.J. Abrams

I don't know much about Star Wars but this feels like an authentic Star Wars film and its fun, even with all the pandering to fans. Wish I didn't have to see it in 3D because the movie probably looked really good.

Time Masters (1982)
12/16/15

Directed by: René Laloux

Definitely a cool movie with great ideas throughout but it does feel a bit like things just happening. The end really tied it together though, even if it was pretty sudden. Obviously it looked great and the soundtrack was rad too.

Cobra (1986)
12/12/15

Directed by: George P. Cosmatos

Every action scene more than delivers and its pretty much 100% action scenes.

Wicked City (1988)
12/09/15

Directed by: Yoshiaki Kawajiri

Extremely cheesy but the animation, colours & character designs were really awesome. Definitely hindered by a very weak plot though and there's not enough substance in other areas to fully make up for it.

Directed by: Eiichi Yamamoto

Because of the nature of this film there are parts that seem a bit goofy and the pacing is obviously weird but the art and visual ideas are marvelous as well as the soundtrack. This movie is beautiful.

Love (2015)
12/08/15

Directed by: Gaspar Noé

The obvious standouts of the film are the framing, lighting, score & cinematography (no surprise) but this film does have a surprising amount of heart and strong feelings of both love and regret, though it may be a little too in your face for some. I enjoyed the "heart on his sleeve" approach and the story structure definitely worked to the films advantage this time around (unlike Irreversible) and is definitely Noé's strongest film to date (of the one's I've seen that is).

Starts out downright terrible but once the main "plot" starts it does get passably entertaining and actually pretty damn funny.

12/03/15

Directed by: Terrence Malick

I'm not going to get into "meaning" or anything like that because I don't know dick-diddly about that sort of thing (nor do I typically care to) but in terms of an experience; the mood, atmosphere and feels are wonderful and obviously the beautiful cinematography and soundtrack add to that greatly. I enjoyed not being subjected to another lame "narrative" and got to just "feel" a film for two plus hours.

Directed by: Shuji Terayama

Another cool movie from Terayama but its so similar in tone to Pastoral but I can't help but find this short film a little pointless. This also has a kick-ass soundtrack though.

Ueno_Station54's rating:
11/30/15

Directed by: Shuji Terayama

Wasn't sure how I felt about the first half (leaning towards good) but the second half changed it up and really put things in perspective and I thought the points it was making were really neat. On top of that there is cool imagery and an amazing soundtrack. I like it.

Organ (1996)
11/29/15

Directed by: Kei Fujiwara

It's weird and all that (and I do like weird) but this is so ineptly conceived and executed, as well as boring, that its just impossible to care about anything. It's not like there isn't some neat ideas here, but that's why its so frustrating, because this movie makes them really really dumb ideas. Doesn't help that this was filmed on a potato by seemingly a high schooler. Just painful. Sometimes the music is ok though.

Jug Face (2013)
10/14/15

Directed by: Chad Crawford Kinkle

A neat premise with good atmosphere and a great score but tainted by some poor technical aspects and without spoiling anything, one character that really should have been cut out entirely.

Candyman (1992)
10/10/15

Directed by: Bernard Rose

A movie from the 90's based on urban legend and has twists and its NOT cheesy? But seriously, this film is a really smart deconstruction of urban legend and is a bit meta in its themes. Even without the great concept, its still a very well paced film that's quite entertaining. The ending is a little confused in what it wants the tone to be but that's a pretty mild gripe.

Teketeke (2009)

Directed by: Tom Six

I don't really have much to say. It's pretty bad and not a whole lot of thought went into the concept it seems, though it strikes me more as just "whatever" than out and out bad.

Ueno_Station54's rating:
10/04/15

Directed by: Bruno Forzani & Hélène Cattet

Intentionally confusing and vague though there is enough interesting ideas to make it entertaining. Some cheesy moments and better cameras would have really helped with their high-gloss approach but overall its still pretty neat. These guys should probably attempt to step away from the whole giallo thing after this. I'd be curious about the results.

The Brood (1979)
10/03/15

Directed by: David Cronenberg

Really jumbled and random for most of it and not especially good but the end tied everything together and got somewhat cool. Also Howard Shore's soundtrack was terribly cheesy in all the wrong ways.

There are some legitimately good things about this movie and I think its a cool premise but though I did like the very ending, there was a lot of dumb bullshit to get to that point.

Cremaster 5 (1997)
09/05/15

Directed by: Matthew Barney

One of the more simple entries in the Cremaster series but the camera work was definitely a bit of an upgrade from the the ones that came before it (4 & 1) and I enjoyed the imagery and the more accessible story.

Directed by: Alejandro Jodorowski

Part 1 is pretty damn amazing but part 2, though continuing part one in a way that makes enough sense, is so tonally different and considerably less interesting. It's appropriate given the themes for this to happen but it does leave the second half somewhat underwhelming.

Playtime (1967)
08/07/15

Directed by: Jacques Tati

An incredibly ambitious and impressive film that's smart clever and funny though some parts feel too meticulously crafted to feel as whimsical as it wants and at times feels more like an exercise than a piece of art. Still a greatly entertaining movie.

The Tribe (2014)
07/24/15

Directed by: Miroslav Slaboshpitsky

Can't properly review it because the screening I was at had an absurd amount of technical problems (inconsistent frame rate, darkness, pixelated video). I'm not really into bleak, eastern European cinema but this had some cool scenes. A bit hard to follow with the sign-language gimmick and all but it was decent.

Directed by: Jacques Rivette

The deliberate and meticulously planned cinematography is impressive and beautiful to look at but that, as well as the very focused script, constrain La Belle Noiseuse to being just a film and lacks the playfulness or freedom to reach beyond that. That being said, I do think I missed some things towards the end that stepped outside of my previous criticism. Overall an enjoyable, though not specifically rewarding, experience.

Inside Out (2015)
06/28/15

Directed by: Pete Docter & Ronaldo Del Carmen

The plot with the girl had potential but the shit with the emotions getting lost was so poorly handled and wound up being obscenely bland. There's like 3 different stories and none of them are given enough screen time to be properly developed, making it impossible to become emotionally attached. Mostly awful but at least the score was good.
