Fuck, the Hunger Games are back. In a war.
"Sir, the rebels are approaching. What should we do?"
"Trap them in a courtyard and flood it with lethal oil."
"What if they run to higher ground? Do we have enough murder oil to ensure that they're all killed no matter what?"
"No no, let's give them a sporting chance. If they elude our oil for a minute or so, we'll let it recede and they can just continue toward…
Tonight, India joins the hunt.
Gothic, surreal, unsettling, and of course, tremendously gorgeous. Not surprising since I expect nothing less from the master Park Chan Wook. A frame is always connected to the next, transition between scenes are so smooth they're almost invisible. Every shot seems to have a life of its own. Instead of being a medium to carry the plot, they gracefully became the story itself. Mia Wasikowska gave her best and so does everyone else. Without a single doubt, I say Stoker is as good as an English debut gets.
If only boxing in real life was this exciting. The fights in this film are filmed to absolute perfection. They're intense, brutal, and down right raw. Floyd Mayweather should watch this movie and then maybe he'll actually learn how to fight an exciting fight.
I am very impressed with director Ryan Cooler. He knocked his first film, Fruitvale Station out of the park and he has now knocked his second film, Creed out of the park. I cannot wait to…
clear-eyed, playful & pissed as hell. long, but a long time coming, Spike Lee is always at his best when it's an emergency, and this is a *god damn* emergency.
it's also bigger than guns, leveraging that verrrry real threat into a broader look at the institutional rot that results from chronic maleness. the wild all-over-the-place jazz is to be expected, but Spike can't make this sort of thing without it.
also, Nick Cannon... has talent? this is a lot to take.
it won't matter down the line, but it's thrilling how current CHI-RAQ is. see this movie before you forget who the fuck Ben Carson is.
Unflinchingly brutal, relentless, beautiful, and challenging... there is so much to say and so much to praise about this near-masterpiece from Alejandro G. Iñárritu.
While traveling back to their village after an attack on their camp — the attack being of course filmed in a grand, sweeping single take by Emmanuel Lubezki who will most likely make history at this year's Academy Awards — Hugh Glass, an American fur-trapper and frontiersman in the early 1800s (played by a commandingly brilliant…
Jean Reno, a thirteen-year-old Natalie Portman and Gary Oldman. This trio rocks Léon, managing to give heartfelt personality to an ‘action’ movie (although this aspect of the story mainly situates itself in the opening and closing fifteen minutes — some great fucking minutes that is). This film really is an has-it-all: the drama, the action, the happiness, the sadness, motherfucking Stansfield. Léon is the sort of film that inspires people to delve deeper into the medium…
