You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Dean and Cindy live a quiet life in a modest neighborhood. They appear to have the world at their feet at the outset of the relationship. However, his lack of ambition and her retreat into self-absorption cause potentially irreversible cracks in their marriage.
I feel like relationships go one of two ways and it's either blue valentine or gone girl and I want no part in any of it
I'm currently writing this on my couch in the fetal position.
I think it's suffice to say, my day has been ruined.
I'm not normally a fan of films that make it big at Sundance, partly because it seems every film that is shown at Sundance gets undeserved hyperbolic buzz and partly because many of those films are of the irksome quirky comedy variety. Thankfully, Blue Valentine is far from a quirky comedy and it is the first Sundance film in a long time that I genuinely liked.
A lot of the publicity surrounding the film focused on the rawness of the subject matter, the two performances from Gosling and Williams and the narrative structure that flits back and forward in time. For once the structure is not just a novelty (well it sort of but it does genuinely add something to…
Explicit show of the basic reality in love and marriages. There is nothing wrong with both the people involved. Both are good. Women want men to try and achieve something in their life after marriage. Men get content with what they have got. Materialistic achievements don't mean a shit when you have already married the most beautiful girl in the world to you and have a daughter that looks like an angel.
The ending would re-install hope if taken in a positive way. It will weigh your heart and sink it if you think it's all over.
I love getting double penetrated by raw talent on this fine Wednesday thanks Michelle and Ryan
Blue Valentine is a film with two outstanding performances, ultimately failing to deliver its emotional punch to me because of its forced disjointed narrative.
Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling are absolutely amazing here. They give their characters much needed realism, so that we can connect to them, a connection established from the get go by being allowed a glimpse in their family life. It does not take long, however, to figure out that not all is well.
Throughout the film we delve into their relationship deeper, guided by a narrative that skips back and forth through time. It is done in such a way that it never becomes muddled and for the better part of the film it adds an…
You made a promise. For better or worse. This is my worst.
Blue Valentine is devastating. Derek Cianfrance's film takes your heart and lifts it up, showing us the bright high points of a relationship, and then rips it to shreds by showing the ugly low points.
Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are electrifying. They act circles around each other and it's like watching a fucking fireworks show.
Derek Cianfrance's ability to depict normal life and normal people with such honesty, intimacy, and sincerity is amazing.
The dual-narrative, showing two timeframes at once, is brilliant. Each cut is sadder and sadder, building to an ending that obliterates any optimism you have left.
Blue Valentine is a masterpiece.

"...for better or worse"
Possibly the greatest romance movie. Derek Cianfrance does not hold back on the true pain and passion that lies within love, and the film tells the story with such grandeur. Ryan Gossling and Michelle Williams are wonderful and real. That's really the word I need to put emphasis on.
And people probably don't like this movie for that very reason. My favorite romance movies are ones real emotion, such as Brokeback Mountain or Manhattan. This film does not shy away from the pain two people can endure through love. Every character's action and dialogue, directing style, and sound design is all very real. The film is still effective even after multiple watches. The opening scenes…
this movie broke my heart
Blue Valentine is a well done film that captures beautifully the contrast between the alluring and bewitching delusion of the best times of a relationship and the distressful reality of the worst times of it.
Throughout the movie we jump back and forth between the present and the past. The chemistry between Ryan and Michelle is amazing. This chemistry, along with the composition, adds a lot to the distinction between what they used to be and what they become. We are shown the heartful, joyous feeling of young love as well as the dissatisfaction, the animosity of a marriage that feels sustained by their child - or the hopes that eventually everything can go back to how it was.
"I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married, we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think, "I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl. She's so great." But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... "Oh he's got a good job." I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around."
The depth of the script, the actors' performances and the touchy subject matter all create what has become a very sensational movie, I must say that this movie has so much real emotions that it made me tear up multiple times.
I adore the fact that his movie does not employ a key event to guide the story line like an accident, memory loss or incurable diseases. In reality, rarely do such events occur in one's life, yet relationships could still rot.
Absolute must watch..
I'm just going to flat out say, I don't like this movie. Maybe it's because I don't want to see or believe the sad reality the movie preaches. Maybe it's because I watched this in a really good mood, and ended it in a really bad mood.
The movie puts the audience in the mind set that there is always going to be a deadline for their sadness. That at one point in everybody's lives, they will be unhappy. Every character in this film is unhappy with their lives. EVERY CHARACTER.
Don't let your sadness set in like a balding, mustached, fuckboy Ryan Gossling.
