This one is a slow burner but it compelling the whole way through. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce) travels the desolate towns and roads of the scorched and dangerous Australian outback. When a brutal gang of thieves steals his car and only remaining possession, they leave behind the wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric gives chase. Determined beyond reason, unrelenting in the pursuit of his prey, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him. The story is superbly told and brilliantly acted and is one of the major reasons why I enjoy indie cinema so much.
After 9 long years the long awaited sequel doesnt disappoint. Theres several different stories however they flow a little better than the first film. Stylistically its still stunning though id say storywise it doesnt live up to the first but that doesnt really matter too much as we get treated to some amazing characters many of which were there the first time round but Eva Green's Ava and Joseph Gorden-Levitt's Johnny were rather fun characters. Box Office numbers will say this is a massive flop but thats so far from the truth
This was one of the more intriguing films based off of comics/graphic novels I have seen to date. Four tales of crime adapted from Frank Miller's popular comics, focusing around a muscular brute who's looking for the person responsible for the death of his beloved Goldie, a man fed up with Sin City's corrupt law enforcement who takes the law into his own hands after a horrible mistake, a cop who risks his life to protect a girl from a deformed pedophile, and a hitman looking to make a little cash. Obviously its gonna be lost on some people with its violent noir nature but for those who truly appreciate the nature of the work its a brilliant 2 hours or so of film making
The story of medical school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) who's been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. So while everyone around him including his roommate Allan (Adam Driver) seems to be finding the perfect partner whereas Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It is then that he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend Ben (Rafe Spall). Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. Still there is no denying the chemistry between them leading the pair to wonder what if the love of your life is actually your best friend? This is your stereotypical Rom-Com but because of the chemistry between Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan with some energetic performances from the rest of the cast makes this a highly enjoyable film. Heres to hoping more films are like this in this genre type
