I'm no Trekky, in fact I'm not a huge fan of action/sci-fi films, but i really enjoyed this one. It is funny, action-packed, and has a very interesting plot. I enjoyed everyone's performances and Abrams does a great job directing. There are some holes and hiccups that hold this film back a little, but they are nothing I couldn't look past.
This film, while visually entertaining, greatly abbreviates and rushes many parts of the Gatsby story. The Jordan character is greatly minimized, Myrtle's storyline is shortened and even the Nick character is forgotten about towards the end. I really liked the director's vision and ideas, but this film left me feeling unsatisfied.
A unique directorial debut from a unique director. Tarantino writes and directs this ultra vulgar/violent film and the cast puts on a great performance. This film (about the aftermath of a heist, not the heist itself) tests the trust and loyalty between nine suave criminals. This is a great indie film.
I went in with lofty expectations, and they were exceeded. I thought this film would be amazing visuals and no story, but there is actually a great story to go along with the amazing visuals. I laughed more than I thought I would, the story is very emotional, the music is great, and Ang Lee's directing is impeccable. An unforgettable all around movie.
The story is a solid psychological thriller that comes together by the end, for the most part. My biggest problem with this film is that you have to subscribe to its strange premise revolving around time travel and tangent universes. It is hard to buy into that world and watch the film through that lens, but that is the only real way to enjoy this movie. I like watching movies through my own lens, a lens that made this movie look a little murky.
