This is Disney at its best: Charming characters, familiar themes, and original worlds that are so brilliantly crafted, you just find yourself revisiting them in your thoughts for days. This perfect film's true brilliance, however, lies, most of all, in its creators' unique subtlety in conveying contemporary, social, and even at times, political subtexts, without losing track of its heart -- quite impressive for any movie, let alone animation. Zootopia is as sweet as it is funny, engaging as it is thoughtful, making it without a doubt one of the smartest films of the year.
The chemistry between the immensely charming and talented Gosling and Crowe is nothing short of electrifying, which more than makes up for the few outlandish moments in this film. Overall, this a very entertaining summer comedy, with one particular chase-scene that is bound to make you laugh out loud. Good to see Russell Crowe making good movies again. Early prediction: Ryan Gosling will be nominated for best actor in a musical/comedy at next year's Golden globe awards if not best-supporting actor at the Oscars.
It's a genuine relief to see actual human stories -- and not only ones that end with a bang -- still being made. This movie is a triumph from beginning to end, with it's biggest strength lying behind Mark Ruffolo's virtuoso/career-best performance, that is only emblematic of the amazing streak of roles this uniquely subtle actor has been giving us in recent years. "Infinitely polar bear" is a wonderful effort from first time director, Maya Forbes who bases the script on her own childhood experience, dealing with a Bi-Polar father. This is, without a doubt, one of the most important and underrated films of the year.
As a story, this isn't something that's 100% original and never been done before. All that being said, all you have to do is match a pro like Pacino with a criminally underrated talent like Cannavale and what you palpably get is one hell of a heartwarming, crowed-pleaser.
This is a very interesting story than it is a movie. All that being said, "Woman in gold", still benefits from a talented cast and a satisfying universal theme of love, friendship & family, that could resonate with avid fans of art or not, alike.
This movie is not the monumental disaster that the average critical consensus is making out to look like. It does have a few laughs here and there, as unoriginal and refined as they may be. Having said all that, it's still not a movie I'd recommend. To put it in simpler terms: it's not a good sign when every actor in the movie, and I literally mean every actor, has been in at least one other, better movie. Bright side, Zac Efron got to work with Deniro, so at least someone got his time's worth. Like they say, "One for the fans, one for you".
Although not as engaging as I'd hope it would be, Deadpool sizzles when it comes to its perfectly cast lead and a long list of inside jokes that will make this movie as entertaining as a superhero blockbuster could be.
This funny sequel is not necessarily better nor worst than it's also funny and entertaining predecessor. It is, however, more progressive and with a bigger heart. Who would have predicted that one day we'd be learning more about sororities watching a Seth Rogen movie?
Ryan Reynolds has come a long way since his "Two guys and girl", "Blade", or even "Romantic-comedy" days, in this unequivocal career-best performance -- yes, better than even Deadpool and I'm willing to challenge anyone who wishes to repudiate that. The strangest, pleasant surprise of a movie, that I've stumbled into, lately.
In a year of gut-wrenching dramas [Spotlight, Carol, The danish girl, The end of the tour, etc..] this is definitely the biggest emotional roller coaster of them all.
This is a very important film to watch, nevertheless; with brilliant performances from both its leads, especially the young Jacob Tremblay who, as far as I'm concerned, gives the finest/most incontestably underrated performance of the year.
A thrilling picture to watch on the big screen. Although, it does raise the question: Would it have had the same effect if that screen had been my laptop's? I had the same thought watching Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity -- Incidentally, The walk wins that battle with a much stronger lead performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and a generally more balanced and true story. Both very entertaining films, all the same.
Bryan Cranston, hot from his ingenious TV career, finds his perfect transition to film stardom with this Oscar-nominated portrayal of Hollywood legend and two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo. This film is an interesting scope at one of the movie industry's darkest periods. A charming, thoughtful and mainly, a finely acted piece of work.
A cinematographic masterpiece. Though the story does not match, and this is definitely not it's star nor it's director's best, The revenant remains a fine tale of survival, endurance, and nature; ironically, all the elements it took to get the film made.
Amazing cast. Brilliant editing. SNL Alum, Adam McKay emerges from being the co-creator of the oh so many hilarious comedies we've come to watch & love [Anchorman, Stepbrothers, The other guys], to show us he is truly one of Hollywood's finest and most interesting filmmakers.
Talented indie-filmmaker Tom McCarthy (The visitor, Win/Win) anchors a remarkable cast through an even more remarkable -- and not in a good way -- true story. "Spotlight", is simply the most important film of 2015.
