If people liked this movie, good for them. I was really excited to see it but I left the theater more frustrated than entertained. I really liked the interaction between Logan and Charles. They were heartbreaking together. I'm trying not to be spoilery in my disappointment but kids who were bred to be killing machines should not be so easily scattered and taken out. Out of nowhere, here comes a younger, evil version of Logan. I usually like the Scandinavian-style movie pacing but this was almost boring. I loved the fight scenes and didn't mind the violence or the language - it is rated R after all. Roughly half the movie Laura is silence except for screaming and then she just starts screaming Spanish and then later English. Was it the adamantium that was poisoning Logan? Maybe that's better explained in the Old Man Logan comic series but I haven't read those and this left more questions than answers.
80% is about right. I was super excited for this. I'm not exactly disappointed but it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped for. Still better than Godzilla, though. The CGI was impressive but there were some really stupid bits. John C. Reilly stole every scene he was in.
I was really enjoying this movie on TCM...right until the last 15 minutes. I understand films sometimes deviate from novels but Lady Catherine did not like Elizabeth. Making her some sort of ambassador for Mr. Darcy left me irritated.
Simply put, I loved this movie. It may not be everyone's cup of tea (har har) but it had fantastic performances and breathtaking visuals and plenty of story to hold everything in place.
Studio Ghibli knows how to tug at my heart but I wasn't prepared for my reaction to When Marnie Was There. Maybe it was the pacing and the gorgeous, hand drawn animation that swept past my guard. I love that this is a movie for kids but it doesn't talk down to kids and is quite an emotional story about finding where one fits in and what makes a family. I was fine until the last ten minutes of the film when I wished I brought tissues. It's almost unfair to nitpick this one thing, though. This movies tries a little too hard to be mysterious. Most questions are answered at the end but you had to go with parts of the film that felt disjointed and trust that the souffle would rise, so to speak. I'm still unsure how Anna's blackouts played into this because they seemed to happen whenever Marnie arrived or left. That's minor, though. I may go back and watch it again in case that was explained and I missed it through my tears. 8^)
