breezy, charming lil road movie sprinkled with quite a few German/Turkish eye candies.
a cuckoo, oddball of a film. had some funny moments, yours truly wasn't in the mood for these kinda cuckoo/oddball though; took a lil tenacity to finish it.
worth watching if only just for tom hardy and james gandolfini but hey, the movie turned out real decent too. bonus.
real mixed feelings about this one. jim broadbent and lindsay duncan were great but the film was also kinda pretentious-like. while some parts were very real (the portrayal of this 30-year old relationship: how when love goes, and life gets in the way), some were hard to believe.
wouldn't call this a straight-out comedy case you're looking' for a laugh-out-loud.
bang, bang, bang. snooze, snooze, snooze.
this tanked, pun totally intended.
sniper snooze, snooze marked the 8th best picture nominee watched. my favourite is,and i'd be rooting for, boyhood!
the first hour wasn't that easy, i'd say. some parts were tad slow and the thick accents,muffled dialogue frustrated further. (this is the kinda film that'd get one cussed at royally by mates for askin' 'em along)
from after turner's dad passed on, the film drew me right in and fascinated. timothy spall was very good, as was the actress who played the poor thing housekeeper.
timothy spall should be up there amongst the best actor nominees !
how i struggled to keep awake. sorry, this was all noise, no heart.
please do not win best picture.
didn't know of alan turing before the movie. fascinating-what a genius, what a story.
think the film had more potential to pack more of an "oomph".
formulaic, "prodigal son" family drama sure but there were 2 redeeming qualities- the charismatic downey jr. and veteran robert duvall. no big deal story-wise but not a "sucky" movie too.
grand with a capital g, the cinematography and score. the film?
quiet, deep, multi-layered but without being stuffy. it managed (dark) humour too. nearly passed this over, glad i didn't.
reese witherspoon did admirably, engaging one throughout her "self-fixing" hike.
expected more from the pay-off though. hell, I sorta hiked the whole way with you, cheryl strayed.
pretty sure the book'd provide the catharsis the movie failed to provide..
never got to boring nor anywhere near it's-damn-painful-shoot-me-please slow-moving.
kudos to ms cotillard for engaging throughout. real fine drama, real fine ending.
try watching this right before or after say..the theory of everything; one might go blind from crying.
i do want julianne moore to win best actress, but marion cotillard deserves it too.
pretty much "the story of stephen and jane" -first half was more stephen and the latter half, jane.
felicity jones, amazing. as was eddie redmayne.
theirs was quite the love story.
the devil is fletcher!
taut, intense. personally though, it somehow couldn't get past bein' ("just") a fascinating portrayal of a teacher-student relationship; a near-monster for a teacher in this instance. not as wowed by this "music film" as the bro.
the choice is clear for the best supporting actor category- j.k. simmons
pacing was slow; wouldn't call it boring though. the interesting choice of casting steve carell as weirdo john du pont was what drew me to watch this.
there are all sorts in this world.
enjoyable, entertaining. but that was all it was: an easy-to-watch-based-on-a-true-story movie.
did i grasp every single layer ?
hell nope, but it was stunning (including the "snake"), it's brilliance, palpable; i'm still thinking about the movie.
this was really kristin stewart's show; pretty amazing performance.
it was funny, it was taut - it was just enthralling to watch throughout.
very gratifying watch; up there amongst fave top 5 korean films in this genre.
was this supposed to be brilliant?! stop comparing brian de palma to Hitchcock! this played more like a B/ C-grade slasher flick than a spine-tinglingly good suspense flick. was the acting meant to be so over the top?
