Iron Man 2 had me out on the Avengers and Thor has broke me back. Just had a fun time
To live and Die in LA and Shane had a one night stand and nine months later a sick racers jacket with a Cobra on the back came out. The film is all style, and the story is pretty simple, but I still had a great time with it.
**MAN CRUSH SPOILERS**I know I say this all the time, but I don't care. Ryan Gosling is a pimp every time he is on screen. He keeps showing that he really is the best young actor working today and continues to make great choices. Crazy, Sexy Love is still my favorite performance of his this year, but this one is pretty damn cool for sure.***
Entertaining enough to keep my interest, but I was expecting her to be more of a badass, but she was kinda a scared kid who was good with a blade. That said it looks really good, and the tracking shot following Bana from the bus station was very impressive. I know Tim had some problems with them, but the bad guys for hire I thought were hilarious and really got a good laugh out of them and liked having them around
Sometimes it is great to wait to watch these films at home, cause I'm not expecting much and sometimes I can be surprised and really have some fun with them. Both this and Thor I was really surprised with this weekend. I love the whole look of the film. McAvoy and Fassbender were great. Fassbender really gave Magneto some balls, and made you believe that this guy could really tear some shit up. I love that it took place in the 60's, and that Sebastian Shaw and the Hellfire Club were causing havoc. Of course what better than Bacon to lead that crew.
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed a film about a guy dealing with Cancer. This all falls on the script and the great performances from Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen. Levitt shows again how talented he is. In this film he has you laughing one moment, and just as fast he has you turned and really feeling bad for him and what he is going through. SPOILER** during the sex scene I just felt so bad for him and just wanted to tap him out like a WWF match and help him out and give him a rest**
I have really lost a lot a faith in Seth Rogen lately and it was really great to see him get back to just being funny again and stop trying to be these like leading men type characters that he just isn't fit for.
I love the combo of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, but I was just bored and could really care less about an alien that cusses a lot. Would have much rather just had an entire film with these two guys from England going to Comic Con.
Bowie is a God and Pennebaker is a badass. Watching this on the big screen makes me weep.
I love you Jackie Earl, but god damn we are talking about the genius of Robert Englund here.
Yes it could be very easy to point out a lot of the similarities to HEAT, but I got past that real quick. I had a great time watching this film and really enjoyed it from beginning to end. I'm giving Affleck props for at least I think learning from his mistakes on Gone Baby Gone. The first hour of that film was great and really enjoyable, and now he has gone and made a whole solid film that is entertaining. **SPOILER** I thought all the Heists, especially the big climatic one at the end were all very original and smart and added a lot to the enjoyability of the film.
Jeremy Renner is great as the psycho best friend, and once again he throws out this Steve McQueen like charm( Don't get me wrong there is still only one, and ever will be, Steve Mcqueen). My girl Blake Lively turned it up and played a great slut. I also like seeing John Hamm drop F-bombs it
made me smile a lot.
If it wasn't the fact that Coppola directed this I would never have even attempted to watch it. I already have a strong hatred for Prince Vince, and it didn't go away with this one. I really hope Coppola loves his kids and his wine cause those are the only things he has going for him. His film career as a director has fallen off so hard. This guy directed the freaking Godfather and the Conversation, and he gives us this. Damn this is like something I would expect from some hot music video director. This is the last time I watch a new film of his. Sleep tight fat man, I'll always remember the good times we had.
Abortion, Political Scandals, Prison Riots, sex, booze, the great Walter Huston, and this was made in 1933. If you see it on TCM give it a watch.
Is Steve Carell's window already shut. This movie just not that good, and it was only an hour and a half and it felt like forever. The best part of the film was the scene with James Franco, and I was so bummed when it was over cause it was like a quick buzz, I just wanted more of it, so I wouldn't have to sit through any of the two of them running around NYC, basically moving from one cameo to the next.
If you want to see a great movie about a couple getting into trouble in NYC watch the Out of Towners with great Jack Lemmon.
He literally said he got the idea for his hair from Ben Wallace's afro, what more do I really have to say. Great documentary about one of the weirdest guy's in pop culture history.
A good way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I don't understand why directors like Soderbergh and David Lynch stray away from what they do best. They both try so hard to make these experimental films that are interesting, but in the end are really just a waste of time. Both guys kick ass when they stick the narrative and just make enjoyable films.
Matt Damon is hilarious in this and his best jokes come from his narration
Donald Glover gives one of those breakthrough comic performances where halfway through the movie you just know your seeing a really funny person, who has a great career ahead of him. The production value is real low budget and some of the jokes do fall flat, but over all though I had a great time with this movie and I can not think of anyone that I know and respect that would also have a good time with this film. At least watch it for the strip club scene alone, if for nothing else.
I love when I go into a movie with absolutely no expectations and then being completely surprised. All the awful trailers for this thing to do not give it justice. There really are some great laugh out loud moments, and plenty of great 80's film references that I thought were really smart. I just love the idea of a 40 year old Cusack being forced to have to go back into the 80s and try to survive in a Better Off Dead type Universe. I do not want to give it away, but there are a couple of great surprise performances in this thing that are so subtle you got to pay close attention to catch it.
After reading everyone's reviews there is really nothing left for me to say, except that I really enjoyed it a lot
A great Idea that started out in the right direction, and then just collasped. WIth this and Ghost Town Gervais is getting close to making a great film, but he just keeps falling short.
Interesting film about five intertwining stories that revolve around the Camorra mafia in Naples, Italy. The story about the two kids who think they are Scarface was really hilarious and could not wait for them to get back to that tale. The movie was definitely to long at times, and could have been about 20 minutes shorter, but I still really enjoyed and wanted to find out more about that area when I was done. So I guess it did its job, and got me hooked.
Pretty boring through out, and did not really care about this story. I would have much rather preferred a whole movie of the story of the flashbacks of Jeff Bridges and George Clooney on the Army base. Two hours of that I think would have been a so much more entertaining than Clooney and Ewan wondering the desert. If I'm going to watch a wacky soldier and a pussy fight terrorists I'm going to pop in REAL MEN and get my Belushi and Ritter on.
