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.
A highly underrated drama that more people should see and appreciate. Held up by Peter Weir's excellent direction and Jeff Brdiges' amazing performance, this is a movie that almost hypnotizes you and keeps you interested to the very end. Rarely a happy movie, it is still a fantastic piece of cinema.
Fast-paced, terrifically acted and above everything else, incredibly fun. A movie that is a welcome entry into the MCU. Taking what was good about the first "Avengers" and (in my opinion) improves upon it, "Age of Ultron" shows that it too is a great movie.
Despite somewhat lacking in interesting story elements and interesting characters, "American Sniper" is still a cool movie bolstered by Bradley Cooper's terrific performance, Clint Eastwood's excellent direction and action scenes that keep your heart pumping.
A fun plot featuring really good performances from Connery and Harris combined with some fantastic action and a terrific soundtrack makes "The Rock" not only Michael Bay's best movie, but also a great action movie.
"Lord of War" is a movie with a fascinating plot and one of Nicolas Cage's greatest performances. All this combined with Andrew Niccol's terrific direction makes it all a nice little package worth watching.
Emotionally powerful storytelling combined with truly brilliant performances and a fantastic soundtrack makes "Brokeback Mountain" a fantastic movie that should be watched by everyone.
A stylish movie with an original plot, great characters, a creepy and amazing performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, a great score and some gorgeous direction. One of the greatest movies of 2014. Total Oscar snub.
A unique and unexpectedly great thriller. The acting is great, the plot (while sometimes a little silly) is well done and the music is fantastic. I had a terrific time with "The Guest". Go watch it!
A music movie that transcends every other music movie... and a lot of other movies. Featuring an interesting and straight up intense. The actors do a phenomenal job (Especially J.K. Simmons) and the writing is just as great. It also helps that the musical scenes are fantastically intense and beauitfully done. The cinematography is also something to marvel at. Truly a great movie.
"Birdman" is a movie that is so original and innovative that it is nuts. The story is truly great and compelling, the performances are fantastic, the drum-based score is great and the commentary on the entertainment industry is something that was awesome to see. If you have not seen "Birdman" yet then go and get it!
It's like an episode of "Cops", only 100 minutes long and actually entertaining. The chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Peña is basically as good as the one between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery in "The Last Crusade". Sure, the "found footage" style might piss some people off, but I think it works. And the ending is truly heartbreaking.
APES. MOVIE. GOOD. I am sorry for that, I couldn't help myself. "Dawn of The Planet of the Long Title" is a movie that features both impressive visual effects and great performances. Andy Serkis dominates the movie as Caesar (Give him an Oscarr already!). The score by Michael Giacchino is really good as well. All of this really helps to make a truly great movie out of a story about humans trying to get a dam running so they can get power.
This is an action movie with more layers than a sandwich from a "Scooby-Doo" episode. The story is really well crafted, the performances are top-notch, the score is great and Michael Mann's direction is great as always. The action scenes are also some of the most intense I have ever been witness to in any movie ever. Go check this one out!
Even though I prefer the original Swedish movies and books when it comes to the story and characters, I cannot deny that this is a really well crafted thriller from the always excellent David Fincher. The cinematography is gorgeous, the music by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross is haunting and great and the performances are really great as well. I will not deny that I really liked this movie.
"The Pianist" is one of those movies that I don't think you should watch on a date. It is incredibly depressing and even a bit disturbing at times. But it is also a movie and beautiful look into the life of Wladyslaw Szpilman (Adrien Brody). The preformances are great, the story is great and the movie is incredibly well-shot. Highly recommend it for movie lovers!
