Wow, what a disappointment this one turned out to be. I didn't care for any of the characters and the acting was just so-so. I really didn't pay attention to the trailers for this movie I just saw that it had Miles Teller, Zac Efron, and Michael B. Jordan in it and thought maybe it would be funny. I won't say the film didn't make me laugh, because it did a couple times. But most of the time I was pretty much bored. The truly only really funny part is where Zac's character shows up to the birthday party in his ridiculous outfit (which I loved). That was the most 'awkward' moment in the film as well. In the end it's not a film I would see again.
This one starred three of my favorite rising star's. Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley and Brie Larson. These three performers have it all when it comes to playing any type of character they are given. Miles Teller has already proven that he's a very funny guy. In this movie he continues to prove that but we also get to see him take a more serious role with this character as well. It seems to come very natural for him. His performance in this film has been my favorite so far. I look forward to seeing more of his work. Shailene Woodley is one of my top favorites right now. I love the roles she has been taking. I really took notice of her in, The Descendants. Her acting seems effortless. She is one of the more honest actors I have come across. I am looking forward to her future films, especially The Fault in Our Stars. Then there is Brie Larson. I have loved her since seeing her when she was doing The United States of Tara (one of my favorite shows). If you haven't seen the show, you should. I haven't seen her in many movies but just from watching her in that show I know she's really talented and I hope to see her in more films.
The movie itself was really good. The story probably isn't that new, but the performances is what really draws you into the story. It's about the transition from being an carefree youth to becoming an responsible adult. Which is hard for Sutter Keely to come to terms with. He is very much stuck in the now and would like to stay there. But soon things take a turn for him and he starts to question who is and what he wants and who he does and does not want to be.
The movie touches on alcoholism and how it effects these young lives and the people around them.
The film also gives you a really good look at a girls first time, love, relationship, and heartbreak.
The story is strong and the performances really make this a film to see. I am definitely glad I a came across this one.
The film started off with the promise of being the reimaging of the lost scenes of the Al Pacino movie, "Cruising". Then it some how turned into a hot mess of a lot of nothing. I was as confused as Val most of the time. I understand what Franco was saying when he spoke about believing that we are brought up in a box and nurtured to believe that only a certain way of loving, living, and expressing yourself sexually is to be between a woman and a man. I liked that he pushed for a more out of the box kind of documentary, but it all just got so messed up along the way. And the Dom guy was super creepy, IMO. It's not something I would watch again. But not because of the content, but because of the confused mess it is.
Cast: Tom Arnold, Ben Savage, Aaron Ashmore, Eve Brent Ashe, Hailey Bright, Shoshana Bush, Christina DeRosa, Ryan Hansen, Robin Hines, Autumn Reeser, Justin Mentell, Johnny Lewis, Luka Apt, Elena Marinelli
Director: Brad Leong
Summary: A quartet of college freshmen comes home for the Thanksgiving holiday and finds their suburban hometown at once familiar yet drastically changed in this wistful indie tale set in Northern California. Student filmmakers Brad Leong, Tony Vallone and a crew of undergraduates shot the movie during their summer break.
My Thoughts: "I was surprised at how much this film made me laugh. I was sure it was going to be close to an 'American Pie' film, but it wasn't. Which is a good thing. Each of them come home and all, in the end, learn something new about themselves that matures them in a way. I loved the parts with the Grandmother. She was funny and very wise. The stories, all different as they go their separate ways, all mesh very well together. The movie is fun and a great summer indie feel good kinda flick."
It's one of those odd movies that are suppose to have some kind of bigger meaning when it's over. It was sad and a bit on the boring side, but still enjoyable. Ryan really pulls out the better performance in the movie. The kids do a pretty solid job as well. Not too bad of a film, but one you can hit or miss. It really won't make much of a difference. But I like Ryan, Luke, and Anna's acting and thought it would be interesting with all of them in a film together. It wasn't great or awful and I more than likely wouldn't watch it again, but give it a chance if ya like! =]
It's a funny adolescent film. The boys in the movie are really good in this.
The two boys, Charlie and Andy take the job as altar boys at their school so they can get out class with every funeral. Then they skip the rest of the day and get into a lot of trouble. It was a fun film.
I love, Charlie Hunnam. I am a big fan of his acting and looks. ;} But this movie just didn't do it for me. The story wasn't twisted or mysterious enough for me. Plus the ending sucked. I was hoping for a different outcome. The characters weren't that interesting and lacked depth. I couldn't bring myself to care for them and for what happened to them. Terrence Howard's acting is something I still find hard to like. I don't know what it is about the guy, but he just doesn't do it for me. It was a decent film, but if not for Charlie I wouldn't have rated it what I did or even given the movie a chance considering the plot of the film. If you choose to pass you wouldn't be missing anything.
It wasn't great nor awful. It fell somewhere in between. I am usually biased when it comes to John Cusack films. I am and have been a huge fan of his for forever. In my opinion he never turns out a bad performance. He just has the misfortune of being in bad films.
The movie reminded me a bit of Wanted. Not nearly as good though, but still worth seeing if you get a chance.
<b><I>Offender</b></I> was a raw, intense, violent film of revenge. I really liked it. Joe Cole plays Tommy Nix and he scary good in this. His quiet lethal demeanor really worked well for his character.
When Tommy's girlfriend is brutally attacked and left for dead Tommy seeks revenge of the men that did it. But the men have been locked up for a different crime they had already done so Tommy does what he must to make sure he gets put right where they are. It's a great prison flick. I would definitely see it again.
<b><I>Future Weather</b></I> isn't a film I had planned on watching. I didn't know anything about it. But when I saw that it starred Amy Madigan and Lili Taylor I thought I would check it out. The film has gotten high praise from the critics which is rightly given. The film is really well done. The story is about a young girl named Lauduree, who is in a really tough living situation. She has a mother who is young and a bit lost in life. She is flaky and unstable. Lauduree is one of those unfortunate kids who end up raising themselves. When her mother abandons her to follow her dream of being a celebrity make-up artist in California, Lauduree tries to take care of herself without the help from anyone. She gets a job tutoring thinking she can pay all the bills with the money. Soon she realizes that things cost more then she can afford and ends up shop lifting and getting caught. The cops call in her alcoholic grandmother, Greta, who had no idea her daughter has skipped town leaving her granddaughter behind. Greta tells Lauduree that it's best she move in with her. Lauduree refuses the idea not wanting to leave her project (her trees) behind. But she doesn't have much of a choice. I think Lauduree focuses so much on her project and Global Warming because she feels like this is something she can control since her life is so unpredictable. She just wants to make the world a better place and maybe find a place she belongs in the process.
Funny and quirky are the two words to best describe this movie. I really liked it. I loved the odd banter and all of the unique characters. I also liked the way it was filmed. It's not a movie that looked like it took a lot of effort to create. It kind of made you feel like you were a fly on the wall and a part of the story. I would definitely watch this again.
I happen to be a fan and own this series of books so I was a bit iffy on seeing the movie. As usual the movie doesn't play out as the book does but as it goes, that's normal. I think those who haven't read the book might not actually get everything that is happening and might be a bit confused and probably won't like it as much as those who have. It's always hard when a book or a series is being turned into movies because you just don't want to be disappointed. I was iffy about the actors and the director but in the end I actually really enjoyed it. I thought all of the actors did a great job and I only found one or two scenes to be a bit cheesy. But some cheese is to be expected in films like these. I hope the rest of the books get a chance to see the big screen. I would really like to see how the rest of the films turn out.
<I><b>Noobz</I></b> was exactly what I was hoping it would be. A mind numbing fun time. I have no idea if the movie is accurate when it comes to the gaming world because I am not a gamer nor do I know one. But the things I did love about the movie was how much it made me laugh. Blake Freeman and Matt Shively were the funniest of the group. The one liners really had me rolling. I know most aren't huge fans of vulgar comedy and especially gal's, but I do. I guess it's from having so many guy friends. So if you just want to have a good laugh minus all the seriousness and a movie that has no real point, then this is a film for you. I would watch it again.
<b><i>So Undercover</b></i> was like so totes amazeballs. Actually, not at all. I actually only wanted to see the movie because I was curious to see Kelly Osbourne in a movie. She didn't do too bad. He part wasn't very big though. But lets get to all the annoying things that made this film so craptastic. Miley dear, I will keep hoping that one day you will make a decent movie and will become a better actress. I love an under dog. Jeremy Piven is Jeremy Piven. I don't really see the difference from any character he ever plays. He's a one note pony show. If that makes any sense. It's late, I am tired. So more than likely, this will not make much sense and I might need to rewrite it. But I am pretty lazy and probably won't. The only part I liked was when Armon was flying high on the cotton candy mountain flying on the unicorns tears. I know you don't understand what I just said. So maybe that will make you a bit curious to see the movie just to figure it out. But then again once you get a look at the talent that is lined up for this flick and see who the director is, you might pass just for that. I wish I did. But I had little people over who enjoy these Miley films. I was no match to their persuasion. They always win...
<b><i>The First Time</b></i> is an honest look at teenagers falling in love and having sex for the first time. The awkward before and after. I really liked the two leads. I thought their performances were cute and genuine. For those who had their "first time" as a teen will probably be able to relate to this film. Well I guess firsts times are awkward no matter what age you are. I'm usually not a fan of most romantic comedies. But I like this one. Aubrey reminds me of myself at that age. So the film was relatable for me. The movie is charming and funny. It's not the typical dumb teenage flick that are so often made. This one is well written and directed. I would see this again.
<b><i>Let Go</b></i> is a film I wish I would have <i>let go</i> right on by instead of stopping and clicking play. It was so <b>SLOW</b>. The story is bland. The only thing worth watch is the car scene with Alexandra Holden and Kevin Hart. I laughed pretty good at that part. It was THE only thing memorable about this film. The rest a slow dying death of a blur. I can't believe the film is as long as it is. There is so many unnecessary scenes. It's an unnecessary film. Plus I had an extremely hard time seeing Simon Helberg as some big bad gangster who cuts people fingers off. Really? I don't think so. I did enjoy Edward Asner in this. It's probably the only solid performance this film gave.
I fucking loved this movie. It is touching, funny, inspiring, and by far one of my favorite movies I have watched this year. I loved the story and the relationship between Philippe and Driss. Philippe taught Driss responsibility and gave him a home and a job when he really didn't want it. Driss taught Philipee to accept himself and how to live again. It is one of those films that leaves you all warm and fuzzy with a big smile. I will for sure be seeing this again.
