This was actually better than I expected it to be. Cinematography and music noted above the rest of the film, I will say. Everything here was executed pretty finely though, and you may not care about these characters too well, but the message in the end here left me wanting more. The acting was pretty great here as well, and despite Emily Ratajkowski's decent job as the lead female here we can never look away whenever she's on screen. Zac Efron on the other hand is turning into quite a great leading actor and does some nice dramatic turns. It was also cool to see how D.J.'s have the ability to amp up a crowd on a scientific level that was explored here and could get more people into this music making scene that isn't nearly as simple as some make it in that scene.
4.5/5 -- One of the most believable and exciting sci-fi tales put out by hollywood in long. It's near perfect in every way, and is exactly the reasons all of us go to the movies: to be entertained. Not only that but it has a pretty damn smart script as well even if it's supporting characters do feel a bit one dimensional at times. The reason a lot of this felt so believable is that there was a lot of science to story and it all really felt like it could actually happen if humans had brains like the ones in this story. I definitely look forward to reading novel this film is based on, and I also would not be surprised if this one had oscar nom under it's belt.
Not nearly as perfect as David Fincher's "The Social Network" working from same screen writer, Aaron Sorkin. Although, Danny Boyle does a fine job here in what felt like a well done little brother's effort in comparison. I also know that with more views and with less hype behind me that I will come to love this film more with time. It wasn't entirely what I was expecting and I was hoping for more humor for some reason as well as more snappy aspects. Perhaps, I expected it to be a lot like "The Social Network", taking itself seriously while also still having a backbone and whit. This telling didn't always feel like it had a backbone unfortunately, but the characters and script in place were perfect here for what was presented from 3 separate 40 minute stage-like acts in Steve Job's life. All in all this was a great character study piece and powerhouse acting at it's best from all in house. I would say this one is slightly overhyped, so go into it with less expectations from it's rave reviews and you might love it. As far as this year in film go though, it is one of the best, I would say.
Not sure what all the fuss from most critics are on about this telling. This was great origin story and a delightful ones families are sure to love. Don't miss this underrated family epic even if it's not perfect by any means.
In thee end, I did end up liking it more than not. There was a lot of dull moments though and the scares weren't nearly as bad as I was hoping. The romance was very uninspired even if it was just nice. This one is worth a look for Del Toro fans but this might likely be my least favorite of his films sadly and I wouldn't pay to see it again or maybe just add the disc to my collection of his films once it hit's the sale bin.
