Last year's Lone Survivor and Fury were better war movies but American Sniper is more human in a very inhuman setting. Cooper wraps his bulked up frame in the flag of the "Legend" of Chris Kyle and gives a very convincing performance of an American patriot good and bad. Sienna Miller steps out of the caricature of a military wife and puts on a very realistic face of war rarely shown in film. After a crap job of directing Jersey Boys Eastwood redeems himself with American Sniper. "War...what is it good for...absolutely nothing." (1-19-15)
This cartoony Bond spoof is one of the most violent movies I ever witnessed and equally twisted. Bravo to Colin Firth for tackling a role that is a 180 from what he has done in the past and he seems to relish it. Mark Strong is always a welcome sight but it is Samuel Jackson (with his bizarre Mike Tyson lisp) who seems to be acting in another movie altogether. Throw in a blade-runner Bond girl villain and you got a very strange but somewhat satisfying movie. (1-15-15)
Better than expected but not (per usual) as good as the inspirational book it is based on. Jack O'Connell was terrific as Louie Z. and Miyavi as the sadistic prison camp leader. Excellent cinematography by Roger Deakins. (1-11-15)
Exquisitely crafted with a great narrative and tremendous acting turns by Cumberbatch, Knightly and the perfectly cast Mark Strong. Considering the thousands of lives that Turing saved during WWII, it would not be presumptuous to say that his conviction of being homosexual and eventual suicide in prison would go down as one of the biggest crimes in the 20th Century. Oscars galore for this one I hope. (1-1-15)
Marshall should stop directing musicals after doing so-so with Chicago and a terrible Nine and now with this load of dark Disney crap. Only Corden and Kendrick rise above the mediocrity. Please no more Johnny Depp musical cameos. (12-31-14)
