Director: Aaron Sorkin
His 3rd movie
My 3rd movie watched from the director


I really loved the structure of the movie, with it taking place over the course of one week and the process of one episode being made, while going back in time to see the development of the couple's relationship. It's not far off from a Sorkin standard and the dialogue is cleverly Sorkin all over, without it being obvious. The dialogue is very good and at points I was thinking it was a sort of departure from his work and then he would hit us with a very Sorkin line.
The acting really impressed me. I wasn't too keen on the choices when announced, because I didn't want to see faces I recognized, but they really get into their characters and the make-up team does a hell of a job.
I love old Hollywood stories and "I Love Lucy" is my Mom's favorite show, which means I watched it a lot growing up, which means this movie had a lovely touch of nostalgia, too. And knowing the show I thought the references and backstage talk was very entertaining.

The Alpinist (2021)

2021




Director: Peter Mortimer & Nick Rosen
Their 16th movie
My 1st movie watched from the directors


This guy is fucking nuts. I love it. I get much more into the suspense of a climbing documentary than I do most narrative films. This documentary also achieves something risky in itself, and it pays off (spoiler, so I won't say).

Director: Adam McKay
His 8th movie
My 8th movie watched from the director


Climate crisis propaganda? Sure. Entertaining? Yes. McKay's weakest of his awesome politi-comedies but can't go wrong with this cast. The unnecessary strange editing took me out of it at times and the jokes didn't always land (basically all the Jonah Hill scenes). I will definitely watch this again to see if I can find that McKay brilliance in the details.

Big Willy pulls off his best performances since "The Pursuit of Happyness". This really might possibly be his best performances. Maybe I'll determine it after another viewing of "Ali" and this one. The whole cast is superb and the story is worthy and all around a better movie than I expected.

I love this kind of movie, where it's mostly a real-life setting but has fantastical elements. It's sharply edited, well-written, and the actors/characters keep us engaged. I'm still not sure what to think of the ending yet; but it's also the kind of movie that didn't really even need a proper ending.

For me, Timothy Leary has always been a mysterious character in the counter-culture history of the US. This documentary, by the great Erroll Morris, gives unique insight into his happenings. It's also very creatively edited and well-done, even if not wholly interesting or entertaining. I'm confused by the low rating on IMDb.

It's tough watching a Ben Affleck movie, it's not tough watching a Sandra Bullock movie... so this one gave me mixed feelings. The cinematography in this was terrible, the writing was generic, the story is fine.

Really only stuck it out for the third to see DiCaprio in his first movie. He already had the skills, which were especially impressive in this terrible movie I thought would be a guilty pleasure like the first two, but it lacked fun.
