Both in fighting and dialogue swashbuckling, only Robert Downey Jr.'s performance did the most heavy lifting. That one idea did not suit me well as this is supposed to be a team (save for some snippets of solo highlights). Sure, this film features the whole cast but the screenplay forgot the purpose why did they assemble: the humans themselves. The script focused so much on character dynamics and interaction but not with the ones they were meant to protect. It became a power struggle on who's the toughest (Iron Man won that without a doubt). But hey, this film made my mother unconsciously clap her hands inside the cinema so the film won with that.
Asghar Fahardi's A Separation fully deserves its success and acclaim from the community. The moral contradictions complemented with suspenseful sequencing of events that most contemporary drama fail to portray have been deftly captured with ruthless honesty that will make society wince to the truthfulness of the idea of society and other issues today, regardless of the Iranian backdrop.
The Hunger Games. A movie that literally made me sick because of the irritating cinematography. You can only stomach so much camera jerking. The disjointed narrative also didnot help. The move was almost saved by the terrific build up of tension. That being said, Gary Ross failed to establish the climax and anti-climax of each scope in the rich source. But hey, there are still two sequels for Ross to redeem his awful directing.
An arthouse film with shameless but aplomb violence, Refn's Drive gripped audiences with shock and adrenaline of the paced sequences and Gosling's portrayal of a cool driver. He may not be similar to the legends McQueen and De Niro but Gosling delivered high caliber style to a dwindling genre of car chase and machismo.
Garnered by a spirited adaptation of the Charlotte BrontÃ« novel by Cary Joji Fukunaga and a riveting performance by the young Mia Wasikowska, this Jane Erye delivered were other adaptations failed to do, the picturesque persona of the protagonist. Stripped all of the romance and naivety commonly attached to these kinds of adaptations, Wasikowska performed solely on rawness and vulnerability of BrontÃ«'s character.
