Big Hero 6 is Disney's third try at anime style animation and it is their best effort at that so far. The animation is very good and even spectacular at times (mainly the flying sequences) and the mix of Eastern and Western animation is nicely realized. The story is quite solid, the score is fine, the emotions are present and the main character is well developed. The action sequences are for once actually entertaining and visually appealing and Baymax is along with the Iron Giant one of the best robots ever in an animated movie and he is arguably the heart of the film. It may seem too emotionally manipulative and convenient, the pacing is problematic with some rushed parts, the humor is not Disney's best and the supporting characters, while likable, should have been better developed, but this movie is a vastly entertaining and appealing flick with very warm approach, superb animation, engaging plot and many tender and truly beautiful moments. Big Hero 6 is a rare superhero film that has heart and soul and it is further proof that Walt Disney Animation is currently in their second renaissance.
Filled with many extremely powerful sequences and dialogues, thought-provoking and really fascinating quotes and gritty, very emotional approach, Judgment at Nuremberg is an absolute masterpiece of a film. It has powerhouse performances from the whole cast, but Spencer Tracy, Montgomery Clift and Judy Garland are the best with Garland giving possibly her finest performance, she is magnificent and just incredible to watch. The serious subject matter is dealt with utmost respect and unbelievably and thankfully neutral approach. It is a must-see film because of its important story, it is a movie that is incredibly well acted, directed and crafted, nicely paced and superbly executed. It is a classic, a masterpiece, one of the best films of the decade and one of the best courtroom dramas ever.
Into the Woods has outstanding art direction, cinematography and imagery, it has wonderfully developed characters and the whole cast give terrific performances, both singing and talking parts, with Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt being the standout performances here. It has some unintentionally funny moments and the cheating part is totally unnecessary and frankly stupid, but the film presents a new approach for the genre, approach that is both dark and modern. The dark tone is great (although the toe cutting part is sick and just too much), but they modernized some parts for today's audiences and it is most notable in the Cinderella storyline with "My father's house was a nightmare. Your house was a dream. Now I want something in between" quote being the most powerful thought in the movie which has a lot of interesting lines. It is far from perfect, but it has mostly great songs, some funny moments, fitting approach, excellent characters, superb acting and a wonderfully emotional, uplifting despite all odds finale. Into the Woods is an interesting and always riveting mix of fairy tales and simply a magical experience.
The acting is not the greatest and the film's scope demanded much longer running time, but with very engaging story, solid characters, dark approach, iconic conclusion, important issues raised and some excellent dramatic sequences, I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang is like Shawshank Redemption but with greater emphasis on prison escape. It is nothing spectacular, but is one of the most entertaining and purely fun pictures from the thirties.
It may be sappy and the ending is inferior to the rest of the picture, but 7th Heaven is without a doubt a very strong film with amazing art direction, beautiful cinematography, fantastic performances and endearing characters. It may be old-fashioned, but it is a warm film with beautiful romance, some touching moments, superb direction, fine editing and a story that is at times wonderfully romantic, at times sad, but always engaging, enchanting and well crafted. It is, along with Metropolis and Sunrise, a further proof for what an amazing year 1927 is for motion pictures and it is definitely one of the best years in film history.
The first season of Breaking Bad has well-written characters, great acting all around, engaging story and some very smart and meaningful dialogue, but it is also incredibly short with just seven episodes, some sequences are too brutal and disgusting, the storytelling is uneven with some detours and some episodes are too slow, especially the finale which is notorious for being the worst and most uneventful episode of all season.
It has some pretty solid episodes (Cock Magic is probably the best), but all in all, this season is the absolute worst ever in the history of South Park with overreliance on Randy/Lorde storyline, annoying lack of Cartman's true personality and an overall too much emphasis on political commentary instead of good jokes.
