Nightcrawler
Nightcrawler (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Fantastic film featuring very cool direction and an awesome performance from Gyllenhaal, who plays a very creepy opportunist with low moral standards and gaudy ambition. Rarely do we see such a solid film from a first-time director. I'm already looking forward to Gilroy's next project.

Saw
Saw (2004)

This is a must-see for fans of the horror genre. Not because it's the best. Not because it has very strong acting performances. You just need to see it. It's entertaining, twisted, and gory as Hell.

21 Jump Street

Very funny movie despite its absurd plot. If you're going to throw realism out of the window, it might as well be for a funny comedy. The #1 reason this movie works: GREAT chemistry between Hill and Tatum. Chemistry is often the most important factor in comedic duos and romantic couples. The plot is so insane that it's totally unbelievable-- cops in their 30s are given clearance to infiltrate a high school and conduct a litany of crimes in order to find a drug mule-- but it's still an enjoyable movie.

The Great Gatsby

Too much style, too little substance. This movie adaptation doesn't properly represent the agony and despair realized by many of the characters in the novel. It's a decent effort, but it's far from great.
