Reservoir Dogs
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The opening sequence is so unexpected that it just grabbed my attention right off the bat. Then if that's not enough after the opening credits I was on the edge of my seat through out the rest of the movie. This is a heist movie with action and very smart and charasmatic dialouge all the way from the opening conversation to the ending sounds of gunfire. This is one of the best genre bending movies and easily the greasest work from master filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.

The Town
The Town (2010)

Ben Affleck's sophomore effort in directing surprisingly surpasses his debut by a long shot. I've always felt Affleck was a pretty strong actor if he really tried and this film proves that he knows how to hold is own in front of and behind the camera. The supporting cast is spectacular as well, Jeremy Renner had some serious following up to do with his performance in "The Hurt Locker" but I feel he outdid himself with this one. He played the perfect jerk that provided some serious emotion to the story with a side excellent comic relief. Thanks to a great script and beautifully orchestrated direction, this really stands out as a terrific crime film located in Boston. Not to mention it's suspenseful action sequences, everything with this film just works really well. Although the action sequences are great, the films strongest element this film has is the chemistry between the actors. I could've just watch the characters converse amongest themselves and would've left the theater just as satisfied. I only wish the film was longer.

The Social Network

I have to say the idea of the film (making Facebook) made me initially a little hesitant to want to watch it, but once I saw the trailer with the reinvented choir version of "Creep", I was sold. So going in to view the movie I was extremely excited and I have to say, it exceeded my expectations every way possible. This is probabaly the most charismatic and witty dialouge I've ever seen that wasn't written by Quentin Tarantino. The cinematography and production design was beautiful and not to mention a fantastic score. A great script is only as good as the actors performances and I have to say, bravo. I mean everyone was able to hold they're own and bring out believable performances, not to mention a surprise turn in from Justin Timberlake. Given David Fincher's resume, I would've thought this would be an odd direction for him to take, but he was able to make a fantastic piece of modern cinema with this one. Every scene was intriguing and was able to grasp my full attention for the entire duration of the film, the only flaw I'd say this film had was that it had to end, other than that, everything about the film was flawless and I see a sweap at the Oscars with this one.

District 9

District 9 is the most original sci-fi film I have seen in a while. The story telling of the film is beautifully told and the special effects and action of the film was amazing. It is absolutley fasinating to watch, it has strong and believable performances from the humans to the aliens. By the end of the film it's hard to believe that it's the same movie from the start of it, I am still in awe everytime I watch it.

The Wolfman

The film has some pretty decent performances here, although each character has their cheesy part, for example how Benicio reacts when he finds out that his dad killed his mom, but for the most part each performance was believable. As for the film itself, it could have been a lot better, it had the perfect recipe, they just didn't know how to cook it good enough to enjoy all of it. The film is way too fast paced but at the same time it was too drawn out with everything. At a certain part of the film I started to wish it was over but it started to get a little better but not good enough to leave a big impact that'll leave in awe for a while. All in all the film is decent, but not good enough to be the classic it tried to remake.
