A bit of an artsy film that centers around the burgeoning main character who is eager to make friends with local skaters to cope with his lonely summer days. Each of his skater friends come with their own baggage to which they use skating as their escape. Jonah Hill does a great job behind the camera setting up cousy and relatable scenes that make you feel at home. Solid movie but the ending is far from captivating
I love this film because of what Terrance Malick captures with his shots. The idiosyncratic nature of humans. How the character's fidget and move about the space of each room, playing with objects as they speak. It all seems so natural which coupled with the outstanding performances of Rooney Mara, Fassbender and Gosling, really sets this film apart from others.
Not your typical movie let alone war flick. No this is catalogue of many soldiers struggles with war and turmoil that ties into being at war. A good movie for us arm chair philosophers who ask questions like Pvt Witt about meaning and destiny. The cinematography is incredible, Malick uses nature in juxtaposition with man and war masterfully. A thought provoking film and one of my favorites.
An interesting tale of a tank crew that struggles to maintain clear conscience and sanity through the trials of war. The projected realism is not great but there are some unique scenes that really seperate this film from other WW2 pieces. This film is held together by great performances of the actors not so much by the writing. LaBeouf is outstanding as always.
Whether you're a fan boy or a new-comer you should be dissapointed with this film. For those of us who have been attached to the Star Wars saga since our childhood, this film is a far cry and injustice to the scope and theater that Star Wars has become. So poorly written, dialogue such as "Han was..well, Han" (Try using your words Rian). Characters who betray every thing they are built upon in previous movies, leading me to utter confusion. You might say these character are dynamic and changing but I argue theyre just entirely new characters (Luke). Worst of all is the destroying of characters credibility, I.e. General Hux who If we are to believe that he is a general of a vicious and "evil" army, then who is he smacked around, made to be the butt of terrible, forced jokes and above all overridden and undermined in his command multiple times. *Sigh* Too much Disnification.
Then there's the plot. A rebel fleet trying to out run the First Order, ohh but they're are being tracked through hyper space..oh but there's a way to disable it..oh but we need a codebreaker...oh but the characters will get side tracked..oh but they never needed that codebreaker...oh but the new guy will betray them. Seriously how did this make it past an editor. So many egregious offenses to film making, the series, the audience etc but I think the point has been made clearly. If there is any saving grace to this film It is probably the visuals. But there's more to film than that.
Incredibly disappointing to take a successful franchise and in one foul swoop erase everything it's predicated on. I don't not recommend this film, wait for it to hit red box if you're interested in staying current with the series.
Not sure if it's worth seeing anymore of these films I theaters unfortunately.
