I've seen it twice now, and it went from being a good, silly film to an even BETTER silly film. Fuck the haters. "They hate us cuz we anus".
"The Conjuring" was a great, if not slightly derivative horror flick, with some memorable scares and a great ear for atmosphere.
This is not "The Conjuring"
"Annabelle" is god-awful. It's a poorly acted slog through genre cliches and dead air. There is little to no effort given in establishing a sense of tension, the violence is toned down (for what lul) and the "disturbing" elements look and feel like something out of a "Scary Movie" film. Not good, not good at all
I don't like being a cynical movie hipster, but when you pull crap like THIS it's kind of hard not to be. Aside from the whole, "we're just gonna turn the classic novel into an action schlock-fest" angle they went for towards the end here, the film is so poorly written, acted and directed that it becomes something of a laugh riot pretty early on. Dialoge like "I have felt things. And it was WARM! And NICE!" sounds hilarious. Also, the constipated acting from our teenage leads was obviously an issue, but it seems like that could be the director's fault. I say this because the film features a bizzare, hoaky performance from Meryl Streep. That is something you have to TRY to achieve. These performances are struggling to find emotion that the script dictates they don't have. Good job on that one.
I dunno man read the book or something.
This will probably be the best thing ever
Oh quit being pretentious Erik, you sound silly.
Yeah I get it now. And yes it was awesome. Kevin Feige still sucks, but James Gunn seems to know what's good.
NEWW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE!
NEW YORK HAROLD TRIBYOON!
NOO YORK HARLED TRIBYYYOOOONNN
This movie is just the best.
(this was not a review)
The funniest film of the year. It's so alarmingly awful, it actually makes me wonder how anybody worked on this and thought it could be viewed as "passible" or "a film". As a young filmmaker, it gives me hope. Anyone can make movies if THIS is considered good.
"Boyhood" isn't designed for everyone. It meanders in and out of time pretty aimlessly, characters come and go and storylines are only prominent for so long. That being said, if you're the type of moviegoer that likes this sort of thing, then congratulations, you've found something special.
"Boyhood", without any hyperbole, is a masterpiece.
I'm having trouble forming words here. It's a deeply personal film, designed for self projection, but it's also not the pretentious, meta, abstract bullshit that so many "life journey" films have become. It's simple, sprawling and totally loveable. The principle cast, cinematography and soundtrack are incredible. Richard Linklater is just the best.
I loved it. Loved it loved it loved it.
I love these characters.
"Before Midnight" is the latest film in the story of Jesse and Celine. Unlike the other films, which balanced realism with almost pure optimism, this one naturally explores the ups and downs of getting older and raising a family.
I cannot review this film coherently.
I am a pool of emotions.
Nothing is real.
I can't wait nine more years.
For a solid hour and nineteen minutes, Linklater's follow up to "Before Sunrise" is a perfect, jovial, funny and beautiful peice of cinema.
And then it just ends.
What am I going to do with my life now?
How did people wait nine years for the sequel?
Seriously, man, if the rest of this movie wasn't this pitch perfect, I would be seriously angry.
See it as soon as you can.
Richard Linklater decided it was a good idea to take the whole "love at first sight" thing and have it be the primary focus of a 100 minute drama.
Richard Linklater is a genius.
You can be cynical all you want (given most movies like this how can you NOT be?), but I was hooked on these two characters. Their chemistry, personalities, hopes, fears and passions were exciting to me. Having to deal with only the unstobbale opstical of time, we watch two people meet, click and converse. It's unapologetically romantic, but smart and deep enough to pull even the most stonehearted viewer right in.
I mean, if you aren't turned off by the artistic use of harcore pornography, I'd actually say this is a pretty easy watch for Lars Von Trier standards.
Volume 1, on it's own merits, is a quirkier and even funnier effort from the feel-bad auteur, considering his last two films featured intimite depictions of depression and gendercide. Sure, it gets fucked up (especially towards the end), but I found myself being totally engrossed in this odd tale of sexual nihilism. The performances here are stellar. It loses points for revolving around a gimicky narrative frame and going to depreved places that, I feel, were a lottle forced, but that's not to say that I wasn't entertained by this rigorously unsexy tale of sex and fly fishing. Bring on part 2!
Man, talk about attention to detail. This film is all about the technique for me, with perfect performances and meticulously written dialogue weaved together for a powerful, "under the surface" drama. I also think it's worth noting that Kiarostami does something here that I've never seen on screen before (which is probably due to this being my first experience with this director). The balancing of languages here is absolutely perfect. Having grown up in a Polish Canadian family, I know how naturally moving in and out of two languages should sound like, and I have NEVER seen a film that has perfected this kind of speech before until now. In terms of any flaws I may have found, it kind of delves into spoiler territory, which I wouldn't dare ruin considering how the film seems much better if you go in blind. Hell, it may not even be a flaw. I may just need to see it again. I sure would like to.
This review was written at 2:30 in the morning and I'm tired lul
This movie hasn't even been out for twenty four hours and I'm already calling it massivley underrated. I say this because, while it certainly isn't great, it reaaaalllyyy doesn't deserve to be the critical and commercial bomb it's on track to becoming. It's certainly not the funniest thing McFarlane has been attached to, but I would say it's the sweetest. I actually really started to feel for the characters on this Western frontier more than I anticipated. It's also worth noting how passionate McFarlane seemed to bw in this re-creation of the West. Every frame of this feels like it came from the heart. It's way too long, and not as great as it could have been but I had fun dammit!
Also, that cameo doe.
It might be the most baffling Best Picture winner ever. It's a grandly mounted turd.
Just fuckin' give'r man.
FUBAR is kind of brilliant. It's a stupid, lowbrow, white trash comedy with a surprisingly deep and unsettling undertone. The performances are natural, the laughs are hard and the emotions are real. Love it.
Finally, a superhero blockbuster I actually cared about. It's been a while, but man is it ever nice.
If "First Class" was this franchise's version of an old school Bond film, "Days of Future Past" is its "Inception". A mind bending, if not a little convoluted, thrill ride with a keen focus on characters over mindless destruction and constricting world building (MCU, Spiderman, I'm looking at you). It's a rollicking bullet of a film that does not let up its breakneck pace for an instant. It's everything Superhero films aren't nowadays, and I just adore it for that.
FranÃ§ois Truffaut once wrote that Rene Clair only makes movies for old ladies who go to the cinema twice a year. And in this context, and ONLY this context, FranÃ§ois Truffaut can be called a fucking moron. While "I Married a Witch" certainly has a big ol' age appropriate date stamp on it, it's so charming and thoroughly loveable that it's difficult to see whay anybody wouldn't fall for it. It's brisk, likeable and oozes charm.
Well I'm just as shocked as you are.
I've been pretty kind to Seth Rogen in the past. The dude deserves all the praise he gets for both his ridiculous and his sensitive side. However, I'm still not convinced that his critical darling "This is the End" was anything more than an overlong collection of gags ranging from "pretty funny" to "half decent". THIS on the other hand was a fucking madman on the screen. I laughed until I cried. Efron and Byrne shine as well, providing just as many laughs as the famous funnyman. However, what shocked me the most is how much of a head it had on it's shoulders. It was clearly shot by a guy who knows what he's doing on an artistic merit, and the themes of growing up and growing old are finely laced within the weed, sex and debauchery. It's a great film which is just destined to double up as a dormroom classic.
Hey, any dorm that's playing this, I'm there.
How is it possible for a film to simultaneously be the best and the worst thing ever? Well, when your working with the single most talented group of people to ever give Spiderman the big screen treatment, as well as the single worst superhero screenplay (that isn't "Man of Steel") you can bet your ass that the pros and cons are gonna be a little bit extreme. I'll say this much, I have no doubt in my mind that this would have been a fanboy five stars if the script wasn't this hoaky, slow and convoluted. I know this because, like the perfect first film, everything about this reboot series oozes greatness. The cast is perfect, the direction is perfect, the score is FINALLY perfected.
But damn I miss the original writers.
