The Raid: Redemption is the best example of a "bottle movie" I've ever seen. The plot is straightforward, but the action is ridiculously phenomenal. One of the best straightforward action movies ever made.
While it may not be my favorite (still top twenty though), Tsai Ming Liang's masterpiece Stray Dogs is, without question, the best film I've ever seen. With little to no dialogue and still shots lasting up to eighteen minutes apiece, this stunningly beautiful example of social-realistic minimalism transcends the screen and touches your very soul. Some may find it's relentlessly uneventful pacing tedious and boring, but as long as you embrace the story, you'll succumb to it's telepathic grip sure enough.
Damien Chazelle?s gut-wrenchingly intense tale of a drummer?s pursuit of perfection delivers on a Hitchcockian level. Anchored by two career-defining performances and one of the best climaxes you?re likely to see all year, Whiplash is a must see.
Whether it's in a word or it's in a look, you can't get rid of the babadook... Possibly the most complete horror film since Joon-ho Bong's 2007 masterpiece The Host, Jennifer Kent's chilling children's book will leave you looking in your closet at night.
Definitely an interesting idea for a show, and at times it's genuinely entertaining; but overall, it's convoluted with senselessness and doesn't have any real direction to speak of. If you're bored, you could do worse, but not by much. I wouldn't recommend it.
Season six of house picks up with House in a mental institute, which was an extremely unique and creative thing to do... But sadly, once he returns to the hospital, this season is incredibly boring compared to previous ones overall and utterly redundant. the overarching plots (House and Cuddy's drama, Chase's murder and his marriage with Cameron falling apart, House's sobriety, and Taub's relationship with his wife) are uninteresting and underdeveloped. That being said, it's still House and is still well written and funny, just not up to House standards.
The second season of House speeds up towards the end, but for the first eighteen or so episodes, there's nothing new here compared to the first season. It's incredibly entertaining, but it's nothing we haven't seen before. The last five episodes are incredibly enthralling, but the majority is just more House (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
the first half of season three of House establishes an overarching plot involving Tritter and House's abuse of Vicodine. This story adds another aspect to the show that's previously been absent. Other than that and a few staff changes, there's nothing new here aside from some character development.
The fourth season of House finally makes some major changes to the structure of the show. House's search for a new team is hilariously entertaining and the Amber storyline adds yet another layer to the mix. There are a few weak episodes, but for the first time an entire season has a consistent plot running through every episode in addition to the thoroughly amusing diagnoses.
