Manchester by the Sea
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

This is an incredibly sad tale about sad people in a sad town. It's the typical bone-dry film that critics drool over, but it just didn't leave an impression on me. Casey Affleck's performance is really great, the screenplay is occasionally funny but mostly somber, and the directing is fine. This film is an interesting character study, but one that can lull you to sleep pretty easily.

This is a very good buddy cop movie with good performances from Rice and Crowe, and a hilarious turn by Gosling. The story is a bit messy, but the laughs are enough to make up for that. With the fun chemistry between this main cast, I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel.

This movie is pure magic. Damien Chazelle has cemented himself as one of the greatest directors alive while Stone and Gosling deserve heaps of credit and awards for their unmatched chemistry and great work in this masterpiece. The writing is great, the acting is amazing, and the score, choreography, cinematography and directing are all off the charts. I tend to favor movies that bend the mind, and this one does not. Instead it chooses to dazzle the eyes, treat the ears, and bend the heart. So glad original movies/musicals like this can still be made, however few and far between they are.

I guess it doesn't take much to make an amazing movie. Just an incredibly original story by Ted Chiang, great directorial choices by Dennis Villeneuve, and a great performance from Amy Adams. The film's pragmatic approach to an alien landing really separates it from other sci-fi films, and then the story hits another gear and separates itself from all other films of any genre. A couple of pacing holes are present but can't come close to bringing this movie down. I have always believed the best films are the ones that have you thinking well after you've left the theater. This is one of those films.

It's not nearly as bad as Man of Steel, but it's not nearly as good as a number of other movies you could watch. The plot is paper thin, it gets pretty cliche at times, and everyone's favorite part (Harley Quinn) is the most annoying in my opinion. This is 99% because I feel the coy, goofy, over-confident super hero/villain is entirely too played out, and 1% because of the way Margot Robbie says "puddin." If you're all in on the DC universe, and I don't know why you would be, you'd enjoy this film. If you're not, or if you're like me and are all out of the superhero genre all together, then don't waste your time & money (For the record, I only wasted my time).
