A severely underrated film, Shutter Island is a perfect bland of scary, thrilling, creepy, and jaw-dropping moments. Surprisingly, the plot is incredibly complex and dense, while at the same time The ending will left me speechless and more than satisfied.
A great thriller and not too scary either.
The Crucible is an intense colonial crime thriller, and its just about as good as a colonial crime thriller can be. My biggest problem with this film is the lack of solid set pieces. All of the indoor rooms look like they're part of 1990s movie.
There are many plots going on here; the relationship between Abby and the girls (which is actually abandoned about 30 minutes in), John and Abby, John and his wife, and the town of Salem and the witch trials. Unfortunately, the storyline with Abby is quickly thrown out the window and she and her clan of teenager girls become simply a force of evil. The story grabs at Daniel Day-Lewis' John Proctor as a protaganist without much setup. But Day-Lewis handles it well, and gives a performance that can be painful to watch. In a good way. There are a few memorable scenes that also prove painful to rewatch later (more notably, the adultery court scene with Elizabeth Proctor and the very first scene with the mangled chicken).
I must note that I have not finished the film. We are about halfway through it in my English class, and we watch it in short 10 or 15 minute chunks. I don't know whether this helps or hurts a film's impression on the viewer, but I've certainly enjoyed it.
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is a hilariously offensive picture that has all the right ideas. The problem is, the film seems like it's trying to hard. I feel like even if it was a little less funny, if it wasn't just outrageous situation, more outrageous situation for the duration of the movie, it would have peeked my interest much more. It certainly is composed of several memorable scenes, something that very few a film can say about itself. It's definitely on for the ages, one of the most significant films of the decade, and finally the international breakthrough performance for Sacha Baron Cohen.
What a great comedy! I have very limited spanish, but this dark comedy takes death and turns it on its head. Clever,emotional and perfect in every which way. Anyone over the age of 15 should enjoy this movie. A delightful comedy for almost everyone. Great performances all around.
