This movie is as much of a crime-drama as it is a thought provoking statement on business and it manages to do both splendidly. The performances by Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain and Albert Brooks are all terrific, and all of the other supporting players are great too. The music is ominous and helps build suspense as it manages to fit the mood of each scene. J.C. Chandor's steady direction is also something holding this movie up above a lot of other movies within the same genre. I highly recommend "A Most Violent Year" to anyone looking for a great movie.
"The Departed" is a movie featuring a very well told, multi-perspective story featuring some fantastic performances from DiCaprio, Damon, Nicholson and everyone else. It is also a movie that is held up by Scorsese's terrific direction and the fascinating and often funny screenplay.
A psychological thriller with horror elements that actually works. The reasons it works mostly harken back to what I mentioned before about it being psychological. The movie focuses mroe on psychological tension rather than regular horror clichés. What also helps the movie hold up is John Cusack's terrific lead performance as writer Mike Enslin. This is overall a good horror/thriller movie.
My least favorite "Fast & Furious" movie. It contains a plot that tries to be more than it actually is, a slightly more functional soundtrack and a really annoying performance by Tyrese Gibson who unfortunately gets too much screen time. This is definitely a sub-par sequel.
What a way to start a career. Duncan Jones' directorial debut is a well-written, terrifically shot, and really interesting movie that keeps you engrossed the entire time. And Sam Rocwell gives what I would call the best performance of his career, showing all emotions possible as he goes through this movie all alone.
