A mediocre movie. Good acting by most (not sure why Adam Driver gets so many roles...he's not that talented compared to many others). Script is so-so. It's a typical love and divorce story. Predictable. Some moments tug at the heart strings (predictably). There are far better scripts to spend money on to make a movie than this. No surprises here, folks. You've seen it before & will see it again, over & over & over.
It doesn't get any better than this. The powerful acting skill of all the key actors just jumps off the screen. De Niro & Pacino can say so much with their eyes & body language without speaking a word. It's looooong. Maybe a little too long, with a few extra scenes in the middle that could be cut, which I expect may happen to future renditions. But I'm glad I got to see the whole thing. The editing, the cinematography, the script, the acting, the music...perfection. This is quality movie making. A must see. You'll never get to see all these fine actors in one movie again, probably. Now, I may have to read the book to fill in some blanks. Thankfully, the script doesn't have the characters spelling out every little event or emotion. These guys aren't that way. A fine movie without anyone even wearing a comic book outfit!
This was a very entertaining, interesting thriller to watch. The script was original, which is hard to do these days. The writing & acting top notch. Daddario as Constance was perfect. Farmiga was outstanding. If she continues choosing her films correctly, she'll have an ironclad acting career for life. Her character wasn't easy to play, I'm sure, but she was amazing. I can see the familiar, hypnotic Farmiga eyes, when I look at her. Glover was typically Glover, doing a good version of weird, maybe insane Uncle Julian. The actor who played cousin Charlie was excellent (& easy on the eyes), but that sort of role is fairly easy to play, I think. He'll have a long career, too. He's very good at portraying this type of which there are many roles in Hollywood. There's not much action in his movie. No ghosts. No one sawing off legs. It's a quiet movie that proceeds along a definite eery path that leaves a lot to the imagination. It's eery & gothic, different & fascinating. There's something deeply flawed in every character. I didn't turn away during the whole film, wanting to see what happens with the characters. For the current day action-oriented audience, this may not be a #1 choice, but for others, like myself, this is ace.
This is a movie based on real events. It's an odd movie. I had to watch it twice before I got it. It's a bit disjointed, jumping from one thing to another. Easy to miss something important. I read up on the real events, then ran through the movie again, liking it a lot the second time. The style of the movie is unusual, but interesting. The acting is superb. I love these based-on-real-events tell-all movies. It could have been better, but I liked it as it was and recommend it. If you liked The Big Short, Margin Call, & the like, you may like his one.
If scary is a gauge to judge a horror movie, then this one is really good. Pretty scary. Acting supberb. Cinematography a bit dark, but this is a horror movie. Again, this is scary. I don't rate it a 5 because I didn't like the ending, but that's just me. It was done well, just not to my liking. Toni Collette outdid herself in this. Gabriel Byrne was excellent, as always. The kids were great. I recommend for scary moments that'll scare the you know what outta you.
A thoroughly entertaining light comedy murder mystery. Jennifer Aniston in her best form & genre. Love this film, despite not liking Adam Sandler in anything else. It moves fast, the dialogue is fresh and funny, the characters are intentionally stereotypical. It's got everything: money, deaths, guns, arrows, foot chases, car chase, great clothes, a yacht. It was great, so I give it a 5, for what it is and intended to be.
The only exceptional thing about this film is Mads Mikkelsen, who is always worth watching. Otherwise, the film is mediocre, predictable, schmaltzy in parts, your typical beat-em-up shoot-em-up extravaganza, complete w/closeups of wounds and dead people. Too much money was spent for a mediocre movie. Surely Mikkelsen doesn't need the money this much, does he? He can afford to be more discriminating.
Brace yourself for a surreal ride into the mind of a violent criminal who lives for violence and attention, and nothing else. Once I accepted that, I was captivated by the the sad life being portrayed by Tom Hardy, and by the wonderfully shot film. The script was a bit disjointed, like Bronson's mind, but it works. The writing, the acting, the characters...all excellent. Hardy's performance was breathtaking, spectacular. How did he do it? A shout out for the prison governor (a fine actor & director), and for Bronson's prison mater and promoter (the actor Matt King).
It's an odd movie, disjointed, based on Alice in Wonderland books. I recommend it for those who like the odd movie. The writing may be disjointed (but then Alice in Wonderland is a fantastical, disjointed story), but the actors are first rate and go all in for their characters. They are excellent and a joy to watch. Matt King as Gonzo is spectacularly bad, Whitey the rabbit is the centerpiece character along w/Alice. The weakest is Alice, a typical, bland performance turned in by the typical pretty young woman. That character could have been done so much better. Pam Ferris is one of the oddball characters and does her character justice. Felix, the Cheshire Cat, played by Gary Beadle, plays the cat as the wiley creature he is, with the smooth voice we've come to know for the cat. This film is interesting to watch for the creative sets, the fantasy world it creates, the human representations of the book's characters, and the acting performances (looks like the actors had fun with their roles).
It passed the time and had a few good gore scenes in the comedic style. Matt King shines as one of the eccentric characters he's played in films.
I've never seen a movie before where the characters whisper all the way through, until this one. This is such a boring movie that I'd give it zero stars, except for the cinematography and just watching Nicole Kidman elegantly glide through the movie in exotic clothing while on a camel. Kidman is exceptional in everything, at least in some way. The portrayal of the real Gertrude, and others reaction to her in a time where women were treated like chattel in that part of the world is unbelievable. Overdramatic, whispering dialogue, with long periods of people just looking at each other.
An excellent movie. The cinematography, the script, the acting. All first rate. My gosh, the lead actress is good. The way she squeezes emotion and suspense out of a line. She can show the slightest intent just in her face. Woody Harrelson was perfect for the honest lug of a husband. Carlos and his gf...all first rate. The suspense builds and builds, with surprises along the way. And how a supposed good character isn't, necessarily, so good. I feel for Harrelson's husband at the end. He has no idea of the kind of person he's married to, still? Or does he? Great movie.
The perfect film, for its genre. All movie lovers should see it. Its format was unique for its time and changed the way movies were constructed and presented.
A classic. Malcolm McDowell's character is iconic. And he sure was cute back then. If you haven't seen this movie, you need to.
I really enjoyed this. With Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lange, you've got two pros who do an excellent job conveying emotions, happy or sad ones. Very enjoyable. I enjoyed Billy Connolly in this. It's not an award winner. It won't change the world. But it's a fun watch, good entertainment. I can't help but wonder why Demi Moore is in this. She did a great job, but it's such a small role.
Anything with John Cusack is probably worth watching at least part of the way through, but beyond that, this movie isn't worth the time. It's one of the most boring movies ever made.
Hard to watch. Unbelievable and unbelievably stupid.
Very very very good. Suspenseful. Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich are wonderful in this. Predictable, but a good script, great acting. I think it's similar to The Quiet Place, but this was written before The Quiet Place, so it's not a knockoff. I could imagine where it was going, but I didn't care. It was such a good watch that I rate it 4.5.
Jennifer Aniston shines in this Netflix movie. She was able to use all her comedic and dramatic skills. She has also transitioned into more mature roles effortlessly (and still looks amazing). This is a touching movie about mother and daughter. The daughter isn't quite the shrinking unconfident teen that is usually portrayed. In fact, she's a bit mean to her mother. Aniston does nothing to deserve the hostility her daughter shows toward her. The script is good and moves along at a good pace, although it does drag a bit here and there. The plot is pretty predictable, but that's okay, for this kind of movie. It was an enjoyable watch. I don't know if I'd think that if Aniston hadn't been landed for the mother's role. Love the Dolly Parton songs.
I've seen worse. But not many. The acting is bad, the script is bad, predictable, sappy. I can't even say the actors made the best of a bad script. Balik's performance is especially bad. Her strength is definitely in comedy, not this. The lead actor did okay, considering what he had to work with.
