First time in a while I've been refreshed with an actually semi-smart horror movie that also doesn't skimp on the thrills. It's a shame that the sequels went full-blown gorefest. 8/10
It's Pulp Fiction. What else is there to say?
I really liked this movie. Although some of the plot development I thought was sort of questionable, it has great acting, beautiful cinematography and a very profound script, as well as touching and absorbing moments. 8.5/10.
I was very much blown away by this movie. I cannot name a single weak element of it. The performances were phenomenal, not least by Ída Mekkín Hlynsdóttir, who gave one of the most natural and beautiful child performances I've been blessed to see in a long time. Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson was also a standout, with beautiful moments of subtlety that show his prowess as an actor. The film used the country of Iceland to its advantage, with some absolutely beautiful cinematography, with many of the shots and scenes living up to the movies name. Extraordinary directing and writing also show how amazing this movie truly is, but the most prominent thing was sound design and score. The soft whistling tones of violins that play throughout the movie create an almost astoundingly haunting atmosphere, and with a both beautiful and chilling score, it's quite alluring to just close your eyes and feel it all wash over you. Overall, I'm being completely genuine when I say this may be the best movie of 2020, and will hopefully be a contender for Best Picture. This is a movie which I recommend everyone and anyone watch. 9.8/10.
I walked into this movie with relatively high expectations, considering how brilliant the more recent A24 productions have been. In the first ten minutes of the film, I was pretty underwhelmed, and while I thought it was technically brilliant, to me it seemed like it was going to be a slightly-above-average coming of age story. However, they then went crashing in, zero fucks given, went straight for the jugular, and turned this into one of the most heartfelt, dramatic and emotionally intense cinema experiences I have had in a long time. I was completely blown away, and left the cinema almost awestruck. The cinematography was outstanding, and the performances were absolutely amazing from every cast member. But what really separated thois movie and made it so amazing was how real the characters felt. Throughout the film, mainly because of the brilliant writing and outstanding performances, you fall in love with each and every character, and they feel like ordinary people. The only real weak elements of the film were the score, which I felt took me out of my immersion in certain situations, as well as the runtime and slightly underdeveloped story for one of the characters (however this was most likely for thematic reasons.) Despite this, I was still blown away by the film. It's one of the best cinema experiences I've ever had and I'm so glad that this was the first film I watched in cinemas post quarantine. I highly recommend this.
titties. lots of titties.
I absolutely love this movie. With amazing performances by all the cast, brilliant cinematography and choreography, great writing and costumes, there's really not much to dislike about the film. While it did not blow me away, it is certainly a technical achievement that is also very immersive.
Pretty amazing cinematography and an incredible score, but Joaquin Phoenix was most definitely the star of the show, in one of the greatest performances this decade. I was disappointed in Todd Phillips directing, but the writing was pretty good, and overall, I recommend.
Pretty great movie, with an awesome performance from Olivia Colman. Although it was not the most immersive movie experience I've ever had, I did enjoy it.
Stellar performances (especially from Andrew Garfield) and directing, with my only real complaint being some of the writing (although that is more of a personal taste thing.) Overall, highly recommended.
Robert Eggers proves once again that he is a filmmaker to be admired and watched. Smart, captivating, and pants-pissingly terrifying, with amazing performances from all members of the cast, with Willem Dafoe giving a performance that still haunts me even a month later, this is a must-watch for any A24 fan or anyone in general. 10/10.
Whiplash presents us with a brilliant story of passion and sacrifice. Accompanied by a great performance by Miles Teller and an awe-inspiring performance by J.K. Simmons, with great cinematography and a brilliant score, it's hard to dislike. Great writing and directing also help it, with intensity that will never leave you, this is still one of my favourites to this day. 9.3/10
Charming, funny, with great performances and sweet writing, it's a difficult movie to dislike. 8.8/10
This movie was the definition of the term "okay". Not the best, not the worst. nuff said.
This movie is the most underrated animated movie of the past decade. Makoto Shinkai proves his dominance in animation once again with a brilliant and touching movie about young love and death. I would consider this his masterpiece, arguably better than Your Name. 4.5/5.
I went into this movie nearly completely blind with a friend of mine a few days after this came out in Australia, long before the movies hype train began. I had no expectations in the slightest, with the only information I had about the movie being the trailer. I know absolutely nothing about this movie. I left beyond changed. This is the best movie I've seen. It's witty and hilarious, with brilliant cinematography and direction, as well as some of the most underrated acting in cinema. 5/5
