The description of this screams awesomeness... In a completely horrible way
The fad of actors becoming directors needs to stop, and The Water Diviner further proves that point. The story is genuinely interesting and the film technically sound, but Crowe's directorial debut comes across as spacy and inconsistent. How this film shared the award for best picture with The Babadook at the Australian Academy Awards is something I'll never understand. On a side note, this was the last film of the groundbreaking cinematographer Andrew Lesnie's imacculate career. He will be missed.
New Zealand comedy legends Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement write, direct, and star What We Do In The Shadows, a mockumentary on par with something from legendary filmmaker Christopher Guest. Absolutely brilliant pacing paired with unrelentingly subtle comedic gold create a cult classic destined to go down as one of the best.
Despite the amateurish acting, the first twenty minutes of the rebooted Poltergeist managed to intrigue me far more than I thought it would... Then came the onslaught of jump scares without any tension to speak of. Wound up being just another Hollywood money grab lacking any real substance.
The latest installment of the billion-dollar SpongeBob franchise delivers enough for the kids to love, but lacks the upper-level jokes that have made the show a hit for both children and adults alike.
This is a ridiculous movie... The fact that this film exists actively bothers me... Jennifer Lopez is one of the worst actresses in the history of Hollywood.
Mortdecai delivers an absurdly specific style of humor that few will truly appreciate... Fortunately, I'm one of them. Of course the plot was ridiculous, but I found myself laughing far more than I did in any Kevin Hart film.
Alex Garland makes the transition from writing to directing flawlessly in his directorial debut Ex Machina. Everything about this film is perfectly crafted; from the dialogue to Oscar Isaac's Oscar-caliber portrayal of Nathan Bateman. There are a few holes you could poke in the story if you really tried, but overall the narrative is groundbreaking and deserves more praise than it's been getting.
Kevin Hart has quickly risen to comedic royalty through his massive tours and ability to churn out multiple half-baked films a year. Teaming with long time writing partner Will Packer, Hart delivers an uninspired performance uplifted by Josh Gad's energy and charm. Overall, The Wedding Ringer is a train wreck, but it delivers some genuine laughs before crashing.
Hollywood needs to stop hiring Olivier Megaton to direct action films. Somehow Taken 3 isn't the worst this franchise has to offer (it gets a slight nod over Taken 2), but that certainly doesn't mean it's watchable. Everything about this film screams mediocrity. It even managed to make Forest Whitaker look like a SyFy original star.
Yet another painfully archetypal Hollywood horror flick best left unwatched. The premise had potential, but sadly it was squandered away by the abysmal direction and screenplay.
Elizabeth Banks adds her name to the ever-growing list of established actors turned mediocre directors with Pitch Perfect 2. Like the first, Anna Kendrick manages to keep the excruciatingly one-dimensional group of stereotyped singers somewhat interesting, though the real humor comes from bit parts by David Cross, John Michael Higgins, Key & Peele, and a few others. Just as punny as the first, but with significantly less content... They should've hired a real director.
Very, very dry at times, but by far the most complete overview of the history of cinema I've seen.
Alejandro Gonzalez Birdman is one of the most innovatively ingenious films of the 21st century, but without Emmanuel Lubezki behind the camera, Gonzalez vision wouldve never been fully realized.
Damien Chazelles gut-wrenchingly intense tale of a drummers pursuit of perfection delivers on a Hitchcockian level. Anchored by two career-defining performances and one of the best climaxes youre likely to see all year, Whiplash is a must see.
When it comes to creating innovative fantasy worlds, Terry Gilliam is second to none. This movie may not be on par with Brazil, but its still an incredible movie that warrants multiple viewings.
Tom Hardy is excellent as a bar tender who gets in too deep with a local gang in this well written thriller. Its a heavy dose of adrenaline thats not to be missed.
Dan Gilroys screenplay is incredible, but Nightcrawler wouldnt be what it is without Jake Gyllenhaals creepy portrayal of the perfect antihero.
This Disney film is as fun as it gets. It may not be the best they have to offer, but its definitely worth watching, probably more than once.
A movie like this produced by Guillermo del Toro? You just knew it was going to be something special with super unique animation and a screenplay fitting of the king of fantasy.
