?Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.? Yes, it?s the same overplayed theme that dozens of other war films center around, but David Ayer?s Fury does it better than most. The acting is pretty top notch, but the script could be significantly better. I guess I was foolish to buy into the best picture hype surrounding this film a few months ago, but based on the Oscar?s history of time-pieces, it seemed reasonable? War begets death begets more death is the takeaway from Fury? At least until the final scene, which, while mirroring the opening shot, contradicts the theme the entire film was centered around. For a mainstream film, this is insanely violent; but for a quality war film, it?s average to below average violence wise. I did enjoy this film more than my brain says I should have, and it was as entertaining as anything out there today; but it could?ve been so much better. 7.5/10.
John Curran's artsy dramatized biopic of Robyn Davidson's trek across the Australian desert is incredibly well filmed with stunning cinematography, but there was just something missing for me... The story was engaging and Mia Wasikowska gave the performance of her life, but despite relating profoundly to screenwriter Marion Nelson's story of self-discovery, nothing blew me away . Maybe it's because I'm not a big animal lover, but for whatever reason I wasn't really enamored by Tracks. It's an incredibly good movie and I'd recommend it to anyone, but that's just how I felt about it.
Not only was Mas Negro Que La Noche the first foreign horror film I've ever seen in theaters, but it was actually in 3d. Needless to say I was excited, especially after hearing that it was a remake of a famous Mexican classic I've admittedly never seen. Unfortunately, for everything it had going for it, the screenplay just wasn't very good. The cast performed admirably, especially for a horror flick, and the atmosphere created was haunting (The 3d actually served a purpose by increasing the audiences awareness of the massive scale of the house), but the horribly timed jump scares and ridiculous overuse of the ghost grandma killed any horror value they may have had. Becker was, by far, the best part of this movie... That cat was freaking terrifying... If only he was used more in the actual plot of the film... The ghostly presence apparently centered around Becker, but he was nowhere to be found once the killing started. It was a clever concept, but poorly executed.
The latest film from the hit or miss director Antoine Fuqua brings Denzel Washington back to his Man On Fire/Out Of Time badass roots... Unfortunately, his talents surpass the material significantly. Chloe Grace Moretz does a great job finally stepping out of her childish persona and into a more hard-hitting role. This is another one of those entertaining action films that really doesn't have too much value or purpose to it, but it is worth mentioning that a hardware store is just the best setting of all time for a bloodbath.
