I can see where the composers for the Red Dead series drew inspiration from. That heavy bass line and the drums are killer. John Williams scored it, impressive. That opening shot during the credits is interesting. The dandelions fill the screen while the three cowboys approach on horseback. Holy s**t the guy literally hung himself! He kicked the horse to go running off. I love obscure storytelling like this. So many questions. Jack Nicholson looking rugged as hell, I like the look with the beard and everything. This movie has a very peculiar tension about it. Almost like you don't know when shits gonna go crazy. Kind of like a Tarantino film. Man, what a lineup. you got Jack Nicholson, Marlon Brando, Harry Dean Stanton, and a young Randy Quaid. There's really good acting in this movie. Watching Jack stumble his way through the herd of sheep on the train was hilarious. I love Nicholson's almost childlike sinister antics that he does on screen. It's kind of weird how forward and aggressive the girl wants to have sex with Nicholson's character.
This movie has that genuine feel like many movies from the 70's do. I love it. It kind of reminds me of Altman's Western he did. It seemed like such a simpler life back then in the old West. You could get away with things a lot easier. Wow, that's some beautiful land out there in Montana. They really picked some beautiful locations to film in. What a weird character for Brando to play. I gotta say, Brando's character kind of threw me off at first. He's kind of an eccentric hitman for hire. That scene where Brando shoots the cabbages brought me back though. I could feel the tension between Nicholson and Brando. Marlon's an insane man. You have to be to be able to play the character's he does with such conviction. Brando putting that grasshopper in Quaid's mouth was hilarious. That whole campfire scene was great. Marlon Brando ended up being my favorite character. He's kind of like the antihero, not really taking any sides.
It kind of sucks that Jack was getting used to living a normal life as kind of a farmer type with his new woman and then his crew came back and everything kind of changed. Damn, he watched Brando's eyes as the life left him after he cut his throat. That was compelling. At least now Jack's character can start a new life.
This was a Western movie like no other. I loved every minute of it and I'd watch it again.
Mia Farrow is so cute and pretty. She has this innocence and charm. Woody is so good with turning on the charm factor in his movies but also doesn't neglect the real and dark side of things like affairs and lost love and relationship/marital problems. It must be tough living in the whole rich expensive yuppy world. That's sarcasm by the way. Oh my god that was so funny. She almost said something to the guy but her plans were foiled immediately when the teacher came by and started talking to her. I can't but feel like this is a nod to Alice in Wonderland especially when Dr. Yang brought out the hypnotizing spiral machine. Pretty cool how he was able to diagnose her and have her open up under hypnotization. It's so weird seeing her flirt with the guy that she likes. It's almost like she's a completely different person. No more shyness.
William Hurt is a great actor. He can be funny without trying. So funny to see how she chickened out of meeting up with Joe at the penguin exhibit. It's so cool how the whole Eastern medicine aspect of the movie kind of made it into somewhat of a fairytale. I can't help but think that Alec Baldwin as a ghost in this movie is a callback and shoutout to his role in Beetlejuice. I really liked how Woody put that in there and I liked his role in the movie.
The aerial shots of New York City and the beach were beautiful. Really smooth camerawork. Colors play a big part in this movie. When she feels stressed or out of place or even is acting like not her true self, she usually is wearing red. "You know, throw her down on the couch. For old times sake?" That line coming from Mia was so funny. That delivery was brilliant. Seeing Mia frantically try to piece together her outfit was pretty funny. I loved how Bernadette was Mia's muse. Oh s**t! Her husband was having an affair the whole time! It must be pretty hard trying to figure yourself out late in the game amidst being trapped in a marriage with kids and being in your 40's. I feel for Alice. The whole love herb in the eggnog bit was fu***ng hilarious. That's some classic Woody Allen comedy right there. How all the guys at the party are head over heels for her but they don't even know her. I'm glad Alice made the right choice and left all the pretentious and fake life behind for a more real one with a focus on doing what she truly loves and spending time with her kids.
Woody never disappoints, never. I've loved all of his movies. He's so creative and imaginative creating almost dreamlike and fantasy-like scenes. This one has a class and elegance to it like none of his other movies. I honestly went into this movie not thinking much of it and in the end left pleasantly surprised by how great it was and how deep its messages are. Important things to take from this movie: Eastern medicine is the way to go, sometimes we get stuck in a rut but someone or something can come into our lives and get us moving in the right direction, and don't pursue a life that's fake.
I really enjoyed this movie. I thought it was really funny at times and I think its messages are timeless. I can't help but think that Woody himself probably went through some of these things in his life which then inspired him to make this movie. I definitely have to own this one.
It's so crazy how they nailed the whole feel of the mid 90's with all the camera work and movement. It feels as if the movie was made in 1994. Jesus that must be terrifying to know that things are going to go to shit at any time and that there's going to be a war fought right in your neighborhood. That's so fucked up how they just left the Africans to fend for themselves while all the white foreigners and UN soldiers fled. It's so fucked up and unfair how the powers of France, Belgium and the U.S. don't want anything to do with what's happening in Rwanda. And I have a sneaking suspicion that it's because it's not profitable for them.
I can never and will never understand the hatred that exists in this world. I don't understand how people from the same place can be so hateful towards the other just because they're from a different tribe and because their skin is lighter. Goddamn, that entire road was filled with dead bodies. That's horrifying. Paul was a hero sheltering all of those refugees in his hotel.
A very sad and tragic moment in history but also hopeful.
David Lean without a doubt understands composition and imagery. That marsh area and the cemetery really look like interesting and beautiful place. Lean really knows how to pick a location. Great atmosphere as well. I swear, I don't understand why David Lean never made a horror movie. It would have been amazing. The escaped convict in the cemetery was a creep holding the boy up and shaking him around like that. But I guess those were different times. God**mn! Pip's sister is bossy and quite the c**t. Wow that shot with the soldiers going over the hill in the foreground and the sunrise in the background was iconic. I can see how other directors could have been inspired by this shot alone. Jesus Christ, what a huge and lavish mansion.
Wow, I feel kind of bad for pip being put through that whole ordeal with the weird rich woman Havisham and her b**chy daughter. Her daughter is pretty though. I guess he's just being groomed to be a man. So crazy how he went from rags to riches and now that he lives the gentlemen's lifestyle, he now acts as such - like a snob. This whole thing seems like kind of a pretentious and fake way to live your life. Holy s**t, I was not expecting the convict that razzed him in the cemetery to be the one who gave Pip the $500. Jesus Christ, what a series of unfortunate events for Pip. He should've just stayed being a blacksmith in the marshes. Now he's all caught up with these rich weirdos who don't really care about him.
Holy s**t, that escalated quickly. Miss Havisham catching on fire and Pip having to tear the whole room apart to put the fire out. I was not expecting that. The big ship scene was intense with the steam boat. It's sooo crazy how Estella fell into the same trap as her adopted mother Havisham. When she sat in her chair, I knew. I didn't think it was going to have a happy ending. I honestly thought that it was going to end with Estella following the same footsteps as Havisham and being miserable for the rest of her life. But Pip came tore down the curtains, shined some sunlight into her life, and broke the curse saving Estella from everlasting misery.
A fantastic movie adaptation. Lean really hit it out of the park with this one. The acting was superb and the dialogue was very sharp and quick. The only problem I have with this movie is that I wish I'd been able to see it in better higher quality. This movie had surprising elements of tension. It's quite the intense drama and feels all too real, almost nightmarish at times because of how real it is. But overall, an excellent movie. It fully captivated my attention and I felt emotionally invested in these people's lives. I'd watch this movie again.
That's funny I wasn't expecting the nuns in the middle of an Arizona desert to be all German and with heavy accents. Lol! It's charming though, and pretty funny. That part when the nuns are trying to learn English was really good. Real funny. All the nuns repeating him when he says, "My skin is black". Oh that was good lol. Oh my god, that was perfect timing. When he pops his head up from the wall where he's clearing out the debris, I thought to myself, damn they're making him work like a slave. And right as I thought that, he goes and says "Old mother gonna feed the slave?". Lmao fucking brilliant. That's great timing and sense of humor.
I like the whole dialogue and relationship between Schmidt and the elder mother. She's trying to teach him things like a mother would and he acts like a child not trying to have any of her lectures. It's interesting to see the different walks of life that Schmidt comes across and seeing their point of view on life and religion, like the chubby store owner and the Irish priest. It was real sweet and humbling to see how he turned around and actually helped the nuns build the chapel they wanted. Let's be honest, ain't nobody in real life that would put up with the bossiness and attitude of the mother nun like Schmidt did.
Damn! Straight up called her hitler. Lmao, she kind of had it coming. The movie can feel a bit too campy and lighthearted but it's feel good nature makes up for it. A little bit too religiously focused but in the end, the message was you don't do it because God told you too, you do out of the kindness out of your heart and because you want to help out.
Overall, good movie but I wouldn't watch it again.
