  • Brokeback Mountain 2005

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 11 Apr, 2014

    Beautiful film.

    Whether you're straight or gay, take away the controversy from the time of its release and you're simply left with a near perfect romance movie.

    One quote from the DVD is a gay moviegoer saying "Finally, we have our Gone with the Wind."

    That kinda sums it up.

    Stellar cast, just stellar. Michelle Williams, does she ONLY play characters that are tough to sympathize with?

    Cuz the whole time I just wish Ennis would leave her rather than…

  • A Bridge Too Far 1977

    ★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014

    :\ I was really looking forward to this one.

    This is a movie that might be fun if it weren't for seeing all the WW2 films made after it.

    Hell, the ones before it like The Dirty Dozen or Bridge on the River Kwai were better, too.

    Sick list of actors in that cast. Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Gene Hackman, Robert Redford, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!

    What I will say is,

    This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

  • Cast Away 2000

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 23 Mar, 2014 3

    Watched Cast Away again, been years since last seeing it.

    I watch this movie and wonder why Zemeckis wasted his time between 2000 and 2012 with motion-capture.

    Then again, as he admits, the reason is clear. It's all in a studio... indoors.

    Amazing film. Made a volleyball that does nothing but sit there a compelling film character. A much better depiction of a relationship with an inanimate object than.... than... what was that movie from last year? Never mind.
