Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It was good, I guess. But not really tense or a thriller. More like a wannabe depressing melodramatic soap opera. Campy even. Bad turns to worse, and kinda cliche. Acting was great but I couldn't dive into the story far enough to become emotionally invested. Call me sadistic but it was laughable at times, the opposite reaction of what they were trying for.

snappy modern film noir crime comedy, dark comedy! Great acting, meta jokes, quick pace, and intrigue. Epitome of wrong place wrong time. Lightheartedly brutal. 7.5/10

Perfectly disturbing anti-hero black comedy. The tone was all over the place and the characters were bizarre, but it was very interesting and morbidly entertaining. I'm not sure what to make of it...definitely a movie that takes a while to digest.

2001: A Space Odyssey

The ultimate sci-fi. The birth and death of man, the odyssey of man, the evolution of man? Or creator vs creation, rational vs chaotic, birth vs death, man vs machine? I kind of disliked this movie, like, it was meant to be admired and pondered and pave the way for sci-fi's, but not necessarily enjoyed. The effects were amazing for the time, heck the visuals are amazing even today, although the sound effects were annoying, though extremely effective. The music was epic. The pacing was very slow but the tone was heavy and mysterious. Extremely ambiguous story. Kubrick put an incredible amount of thought and detail and precision in this kind of long classic sci-fi epic. Less of a movie and more like philosophical art, almost pretentious.

Logan
Logan (2017)

One of my favorite X-men movies. It kind of reminded me of The Last of Us. Even though the story was kind of simple and not so large-scale as other X-men movies, and it had a lower budget and was less fancy, this was a solid character driven non-comic book-y superhero movie. It was the opposite of the previous X-men because it had good story, great characters, real emotions, blood and death and violence (finally!), very little cheese, and depth. I wish more comic book movies were like this. We've seen Logan as 'big brother' many times but now we see him as a father figure. And the chemistry between Hugh and Patrick was incredible. A perfect ending.
