I'm the kind of person (if I'm a type at all) who occasionally buys "friendship" cards from the dollar store--"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you"-- so that I'll have it when I get a girlfriend. I'd love to have Anna Kendrick as a girlfriend, since I'd love to have a girl who loves love. But I find that I'm not like other people; nothing makes you seem disjointed and confused like d... read more

Ah I love me some Anna Kendrick. Jeremy Jordan is pretty cool as well and I thought he was amusing in Joyful Noise. This is directed by Richard LaGravenese whom I've enjoyed what I've seen of his. I actually admit I quite enjoy musicals so I was intrigued by this one. When it first started it seemed like it would be in the style of Les Miserables where all the dialogue was in song. The dialogue he... read more

The Last Five Years requires a more visionary mind to make the central conceit work on film, and Richard LaGravenese is not that director. He’s a wonderful writer (The Fisher King, Behind the Candelabra), but he’s something of a point-and-shoot style director. Sometimes this works to the narrative’s strength, such as the opening salvo of Anna Kendrick performing “Still Hurting,” but it... read more

The Last Five Years

“The Last Five Years requires a more visionary mind to make the central conceit work on film, and Richard LaGravenese is not that director. He’s a wonderful writer (The Fisher King, Behind the Candelabra), but he’s something of a point-and-shoot style director. Sometimes this works to the narrative’s strength, such as the opening salvo of Anna Kendrick performing “Still Hurting,” but it’s more often a detriment as the competing narratives eventually blur and things become vaguely incomprehensible.   It doesn’t help that the musical’s narrative is a twisted knot meant to symbolize the widening gulf between the couple. There’s the female perspective that starts at the ending of the relationship and runs backwards, and the male perspective that starts at the beginning and ” read more

Best Films of 2015 (100 movies items)

" 7.3/10 A musical about a relationship, starting with the breakup... and its beginning... and then right before the break up... back to early in the relationship... The lyrics are what drive the story in what is otherwise a second-rate film. The organization is clever and works and it brings us to an ending that really gets at the core, no matter where you are in your romantic life."

“I'm the kind of person (if I'm a type at all) who occasionally buys "friendship" cards from the dollar store--"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you"-- so that I'll have it when I get a girlfriend. I'd love to have Anna Kendrick as a girlfriend, since I'd love to have a girl who loves love. But I find that I'm not like other people; nothing makes you seem disjointed and confused like deep love.... I'm not against Tarzan and sorta anthropologist movies, but there's nothing like a song. 

So that's the background, why I watch movies like this. 

Of course, since it's a musical, a lot of the experience has to do with the music, which is a little old-time (in style, although they're new compositions) and jazzy; I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess since t” read more
