Kingdom of Heaven

Kingdom of Heaven

(2005)
7 hours ago via Flixster

I need to watch the directors cut before judging this movie. I didn't like the original much, but everyone says the directors cut is better so I'll try it.

Under the Skin

Under the Skin

(2014)
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes

One of the most unique and engaging movies I've seen in years, Under the Skin is not for everyone. The film is deliberately paced and slowly reveals its simple, but utterly engrossing plot until the last moment. Scarlet Johansson gives an excellent performance. She is the only real actor/actress in the entire movie and carries it on her shoulders. There's sparse dialogue here and there throughout and its incredibly interesting to watch the interactions between characters and Scarlet. It gives the film a sense of verisimilitude that would otherwise be lacking in an unrealistic science fiction story. There's not much else to say without giving vital information away, but if you like thoughtful and potent science fictions films that are genuinely creepy and don't mind a little bit of a slog, this is absolutely worth watching. It kept me thinking long after the credits stopped rolling.

Seven (Se7en)

Seven (Se7en)

(1995)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Se7en is a worthwhile crime thriller thanks to solid performances, an intriguing mystery plot, and a memorable finale that will have you on the edge of your seat. The film has a sense of dread that is palpable and has enough moments to keep you engaged throughout, but it is really about the climax. The film clocks in at just over 2 hours and feels like it is a little slow in places, but it is worth sticking till the end. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman make a great pair playing opposite personalities and the killer is played memorably by a great actor that I won't give away for spoiler reasons. I can see why some people don't like this film. It is slow, gory, and unrelenting. Ultimately, Se7en ends up memorable for me despite its flaws.

300: Rise of an Empire

300: Rise of an Empire

(2014)
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This highly anticipated film feels more like an obligatory exercise in repeating the style of the original without anything that made the first one a worthwhile movie-going experience, rather than a full-fledged sequel. We waited 7 years and this is all we get? The movie lacks the charisma of Gerard Butler's breakout performance and replaces him with a boring character that is not interesting at all. The most interesting character belongs to the villain played by Eva Green, but being a villain, she isn't fleshed out as much as the others. This film looks and feels like the original, but it never carves out its own identity. The filmmakers were perfectly content recycling material. Even the speeches feel forced and obligatory, rather than a part of the actual film. It's a shame that so much promise was wasted on this, but Rise of an Empire is not worth watching even for the bloody action. Even that was fairly boring.
