This was a little overhyped for me. It's a good movie, but not a great one. What makes it relevant is timing and debate over police brutality that was present in early 90s and reared its' ugly head again. Outside of that theme, the movie just falls within a conventional biopic.
This isn't just another good movie. This feels authentic. It's almost as if the screenplay never existed. Everything about this movie feels genuine, but most of all the stories, the characters, and the actors who portray them.
Johnny Depp is so good - that it's scary. Once you get beyond the bad make up job, you forget who's really underneath it all. The rest of the cast is great as well. Unfortunately, the movie is just ok. It's interesting, but doesn't really differentiate itself from other films in this genre. Solid filmmaking, but not memorable.
Brooklyn is sweet, well mannered, and enjoyable to watch. Brooklyn is not outstanding because it fails to have any crescendos or a real climax for that matter. It's well intentioned, well acted, and well told, but in the end it doesn't really amount to much
A fairly straight-forward plot that is made in such a taught and tense fashion that it works on every level. This movie is not just thought provoking, but also emotionally charged. It's great to see Benicio del Toro back in great roles, and even greater to see Emily Blunt being smart about her casting choices.
It may not be the best told story, but it's so well acted, so beautifully filmed, and so well produced that it still plays out like a great film. Eddie Redmayne and Alicia VIkander hit it out of the park and succeed in us believing their story. Also, must not forget about the costuming, which is perfect and contributes to the overall great aesthetic of the film.
It's hard to say what didn't work for Joy, because on paper this movie looked like a slam dunk winner. While Lawrence is great in the role, David O Russell's quirkiness and storytelling just doesn't work here and often takes the viewer out of the picture. It's a hodgepodge of styles that never quite finds the right tone.
Just brilliant! Beautiful and brutal at the same time. I am not a fan of Westerns, but I was glued to this movie the entire time. DiCaprio is deserving of that Oscar finally, but Tom Hardy is right up there with him. This movie is just unreal
It's hard to even point to what this movie did wrong, because everything just seems so right. Pitch perfect performances, intriguing storyline, and great writing. We may know the outcome, but it's nevertheless riveting as any thriller I have seen.
Very funny and a great spin on romantic comedies.
Disappointing is an understatement. This film is competently done, but zero of those efforts went into polishing the script. Therefore we end up with little to no plot and barely any interaction between Bond and his villain - both are fine, but never really get to explore their dynamic. This is not to say that there isn't some great filmmaking by Sam Mendes here, but quite a fall from Skyfall.
The film starts off great and is visually beautiful...in fact the whole production is nearly perfect. But the story is very conventional, and with such a mind as of Guillermo del Toro's, you want much more.
Very good film with strong performances, and perhaps it should be beyond criticism considering its historical importance, but Selma doesn't rise to the level of greatness that it perhaps deserves, nor manages to surprise, but keeps strictly within conventional boundaries.
This is a great blockbuster done professionally by Ridley Scott with an awesome performance by Matt Damon and unexpectedly funny script. But it never gets as suspenseful as it should and never quite gets as emotional as it could have been. This is just a notch away from being a great film.
Not much of a story here, but good performances all around. It just never goes anywhere interesting and has been done better before and since then.
The Visit is hockey, but entertaining enough for a watch. Overall better than anticipated and somewhat of a return to form for Shymalan. Although I wish the film would have dared to go into more cult like mythology and have more fun with this story.
If you approach it as a horror film, then I think it might disappoint. But it's great filmmaking is evident in very shot and mise en scene. This film reminded me of an updated and less self indulgent version of Kids from the 90s. This isn't a movie for those that like their films to be tied up in nice packages and easy to unwrap. It forces you to read between the lines and think outside the box.
This is strictly for Ingrid Bergman fans only. Although her acting is a little over the top at times, it's still quite good. But the film is heavy handed and dull. The worst part is that I believe the English release is actually dubbed and done very poorly as it distracts from the picture.
Amusing enough, if for Tim Curry's performance alone! Considering this was made based on a board game, you have to admire the achievements.
