David Copperfield (The Personal History, Adventures, Experience, & Observation of David Copperfield the Younger)
6 months ago via Flixster

Not a bad flix, looks great. I never knew Dickens wrote a story where a orphan boy meets nothing but good people.

Haywire (2012)
4 years ago via Flixster

Great action, great cast, and great use of music too bad the story was dull. Soderbergh knows how to shoot action, but the guy is also a great writer, and I wish he would mix the two. Maybe if he would spend more than a month developing, shooting, and editing films he could settle down and do one great film once in awhile. He doesn't make bad films, but he doesn't great ones either, they are all rush jobs. This film was a lot of fun at times, but I guess I got greedy and wanted more.

Weekend (1967)
4 years ago via Flixster

First off I am not a big fan of Godard. I think Godard is really talented and groundbreaking,especially with the style and visuals of his films. What he does that bothers me is he is too political, too preachy and relies on shocking the audience too much, and that is what's wrong with Weekend. The story never really makes any sense, people are being raped and murdered everywhere and their is no explanation. There is an amazing tracking shot of a car slowly weaving through traffic as chaos reigns all around, really this scene should be shown in all film school. Sadly there is another scene where a garbage man rants about politics in America for 10 minutes, it's dated and a waste of time. I thought there was no story or direction, just moments, some good, some bad. I know it's a surrealist film,but it is dated and is kinda a mess. Overall not a film I would revisit, but glad I watched some of it.
