Insidious has cheap ending that shamelessly calls for a sequel and it is sometimes annoyingly too dark to see a thing, but apart from that, it is a very good horror movie thanks to some creepy moments, deliciously ominous music, fine acting, well-crafted and quite intriguing story and great direction from James Wan. The imagery, score and especially plot are the highlights, memorable and authentic, helping the movie rise high above most of the genre's lesser quality films.
Although it may be a bit manipulative and the characters are sometimes acting in a manner that is difficult to comprehend, In a Better World is nonetheless a very good movie thanks to its fully fleshed out characters, superb acting all around, emotional and realistic approach and important, smart and thought-provoking subject of injustice and what can happen if someone takes it upon itself to fix it. A powerful Danish film that definitely deserved its Oscar.
With hilarious first half and very tense and involving second half, Full Metal Jacket is one of those rare movies that succeeds being both a comedy and a drama without a jarring mood shift. It is filled with funny jokes, great characters and the war sequences are quite engaging and originally executed, almost in a manner of video games, making you feel as if you were there yourself. Although the ending is pretty bad (the killing sequence is annoying and awfully extended, even naive) and the movie should have had stronger anti-war message throughout, but it is purely entertaining, wonderfully directed, funny, exhilarating, authentic and the finest film from Kubrick after '2001' and the greatest Vietnam war film after, of course, 'The Deer Hunter'.
American Graffiti is funny, very well representative of the 60s and it has strong characters, but the narration is pretty problematic - the constant shifting from one character to the other resembles more a TV show than a movie and it is much more tedious because of that. But it is otherwise a good film thanks to its incredible attention to detail that draws you beautifully into its period, wonderful ending and some very respectable issues are raised here regarding this period in life which is the toughest almost for everyone.
Interiors is a realistic and relevant look at a troubling family with career, depression and parenting troubles all explored rather well expectedly leading to a heartbreaking ending, but the direction from Allen is surprisingly not great and it may be too depressing and sad. But it largely succeeds thanks in large part to strong characters, greatly explored issues and a number of phenomenal performances.
