+ The atmosphere of California beaches, shopping malls and driving cars is like a good coming of age movie.
+ Adding cool dialogue and actual acting to a blaxploitatinon style is awesome
- The plot-heavy dialogue about the money will kill repeat viewings
I've been disappointed in the films I've seen lately so I'm not going to watch any for a while to let this good inspirational feeling last.
+ It's a fun exploitation movie. What raises it above the films Tarantino is paying homage to is the performances, the lyrical dialogue and his music choices.
+ Very interesting setting and characters
+ Ridiculously bloody fun gun fights
- he made the third act up while shooting and it feels weaker and makes it like its gone on long enough.
It's a fun nostalgic time at the movies.
+ As far as dramas go this is incredibly powerful because of how relatable every character is (even while being cliché). We all go through moments about what our purpose is. It also feels private and personal.
+ Dat iconic soundtrack
- Some people make fun of the more iconic artistic moments of the film like how he's jerks off to fucking rose petals and the acting during the floating bag scene ("sometimes the worlds so beautiful I just can't take it"). I can go with it but these criticisms stick in my head.
+ It's known as the greatest tear jerker of all time and it works. When it gets going the music and the acting in unrelenting in making you cry, sorta like how porn is unrelenting in making you jerk.
+ Great story and characters
- Scenes with the wives made me get bored and start reading my tablet
I can't really explain why I like this film so much. There is barely any plot and what is there doesn't make sense. What it does have though is:
+ Irene Jacob is fascinating as a woman all alone. Would hug.
+ Focuses on feelings with it's strong use of colour and music.
+ Interesting day to day conversations that you can't help but listen in too
+ Quite a chilled out film, must be the french accents
I'm quite obsessed with this film, more than any film that's come out in recent years. Let me explain how:
+ Rewatched the perfect teaser trailer and insane 8 minute trailer about 20 times
+ Followed a tumblr blog filled with artistic production photos
+ Film didn't disappoint, the cinematography, music, acting, lighting, editing were all done to the highest professional level. I remember asking myself "why can't all films be done by David Fincher".
+ The get…
+ Craig and Eva Green play the most captivating Bond and Bond girl I've seen, perfect casting and acting all round
+ Action is top notch, though I always felt the final set piece wasn't as exciting as the ones before it
+ The locations, clothes, and the little details in how the characters moved are all smooth and cool
- Product placement
It's hard to say what made this movie work so well since the brains behind it made the other modern Bond films but it's a brilliant action film.
Oh man does this film look good in HD. Wonderful looking characters, a well designed Paris and food that looks good enough to eat. The story is definitely the weirdest for a Pixar story but you can feel the passion of the character for creating and has a great uplifting ending. The only thing that lets it down for me is that the script is too plot heavy with no good lines and children would find it boring.
+ I actually smiled a lot at the director's use of 3D. Wonderful imagery.
+ Story was good. I liked the message that animals don't have morals while still being cute. It reminded me of an Amelie sort of movie or a fable.
- At the end of the movie there's a different account of what happened but the director purposefully made it as dull as possible.
- I didn't expect the movie to try to do jokes but none of them worked.
+ Insane story that you can't believe is true
+ Stupid Americans to laugh and cringe at
+ I liked how they used the real guy in the reenactment and the private investigator who thought he was in a noir film.
- Some of the story telling annoyed me; like repeating the same scene from another perspective, prolonging a scene with a tedious driving shot and some dramatic twist that didn't turn out to be true.
+ Haven't seen this good of a thriller film in years, usually Homeland and Breaking Bad fill that void. To get me so nervous about a true story is a remarkable achievement.
+ Script was like a classic 50s Hollywood movie. Very enjoyable.
- I think he made it one close shave too far which made it ridiculous.
