About Time
About Time (2013)

This film really surprised me with how much i liked it, granted that a couple of the characters are the run of the mill stuff, but its really funny and sweet, the themes are familiar but the most endearing one has to be family and enjoying every moment with the people that matter. Domhnall Gleeson is the typical awkward likeable chap but he does a great job of not being annoying as we have seen this character a lot(Hugh Grant in everything) Rachel Mcadams yet again plays a time travellers wife but i kind of forgot about her because of the films real strength. The best thing about this film is definitely the little moments Tim(Gleeson) spends with his father (Bill Nighy) as they are funny and sweet and will make you care about the many wonderful characters in this story, its not perfect and a little predictable but you can forgive that because its a real story about real people.

I didn't enjoy this film at all, the special effects are top notch though. In my opinion the action scenes are terribly i was getting dizzy for the non-stop shaky cam, i will admit i may be biased as i dont like matt damon but the film is just so bland and un-original, Foster plays a stereo-typical stone faced cold villain and the films only highlight was Sharlto Copley as a villain, hugely forgettable movie though.

This is my movie of the summer, it starts off a little slow until sam rockwell enters with a bang! he's magnetic on screen, hugely entertaining stuff with really engaging characters even though its an age old movie formula it uses its cast very well.Steve Carell breaks type as Trent, the abusive boyfriend of Duncans mother which was refreshening to see too. Its extremely charming and endearing i would recommend it highly.

Screen magnet Denzel Washington couldn't save this from being a forgettable movie, it just feels a bit crude and senseless at times and i just couldn't get interested in the characters it doesn't feel original at all we've seen the 'troubled maverick' character a million times before and it quite simply just doesn't seem like a Denzel washington role either.

Django Unchained

Tarantino really knows how to tell a story, he can make such interesting character interaction where other directors and movies fail miserably he can succeed in making his characters talk for minutes on end in fascinating (at times)nonsense. He creates such powerful and memorable characters and thats where his films strengths are.
