Rob Reiner delivers another nostalgia fest of a film, a movie that seemingly has no qualms with sickingly saccharine moments of youthful innocence.
Does Flipped compare to other similar Reiner films, like Stand By Me? No.
But what Flipped does, it does well. The acting is genuine, and manages to capture a semblance of the timeless facets of youth that seem unburdened by time. Although the film can err on playing out like something out of a 50's TV series, Reiner manages to blend the cutesy kitsch with touching moments that keep this film from turning into a sugary mess.
One could argue the film is slow and uneventful, and to a certain extant I agree. Despite this, Flipped manages to intrigue and make you feel all fuzzy inside. 3.5/5.
Reminiscent of other one-room thrillers like Cube and Exam, Circle treads similar ground by offering audiences a plot driven by human condition, ethics and morality.
Circle works in that regard, creating a sense of paranoia and moral ambiguity, although to varying degrees of effectiveness. Some of the characters are a little archetypal, so some suspension of disbelief is necessary. The film however does throw the viewer for a couple of loops, bread-crumbing to a final climax that does satisfy, though the actual ending of the film is quite weak and leaves much to be desired.
It's nowhere near a perfect film (or even a great one), but Circle did manage to entertain with it's TV actors and Twilight Zone-esque charm. It's worth a watch on a quiet evening.
Quentin Tarantino delivers a satisfying and exhilarating piece of work in his debut feature.
Like many films after in Tarantino's career, Reservoir Dogs is about professional criminals, men with class in black suits who have a job to do. The change in this film is that the suspense factor is heightened due to the possibility of a police informant in the group. The film goes through the aftermath of the botched job, and the film gains more and more suspense as we reach the conclusion of who the informant may be.
The film is supported by great performances by all of the actors in the film, especially Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Steve Buscemi. The rawness and brutality of the criminals is what gives this film an edge. 4/5.
Schindler's List is a film like no other, a movie that combines so many emotions in to one work of art is a feat that is difficult to achieve. Schindler's List surpasses all expectations and reaches a new height for film, a feeling of immersion that no other film that I have seen can surpass.
Giving this film anything less than five stars would be an insult to everyone who worked on this near perfect film. The performances are spectacular, the music is superb, the cinematography is unique and works well, every great aspect of this film blends together and creates an experience like none other.
Schindler's List is amazing. Everyone must give themselves the opportunity to watch it at least once. Undoubtedly a 5/5.
Dazed and Confused is a really interesting film, as it serves no inherent purpose. There is no antagonist, no real plot, and no character progression.
Does this make the film bad? No. Hell no. This movie is fantastic, because it transports you to a different time, even if you didn't live in that era. The characters, while simple, are like able and fun to watch. The cast is especially entertaining, with hilarious performances from Matthew McConaughey and Rory Chochrane, to name a few.
This film is really admirable, and after watching it, you feel a sense of happiness. It's a strange feeling, but the film is a really nice look at the decade, and you feel nostalgia, though you might not have even been alive to see 1976. Another great positive aspect of this film is it's soundtrack, with awesome tracks by 70's legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, KISS, and Black Sabbath.
Overall, this film gives you a nice look in to the 70's, and I enjoyed it greatly. 4.5/5.
