  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2014

    It's funny how a film can both "be great" and "not meet expectations" at the same time ... not that I had a severe amount of expectations going into this film to begin with, because I absolutely knew nothing about it, other than the fact that it was being directed by one of the best film directors working today, and its starring the "future Batman".

    ★★★★★ Added 10

    If you're looking for a film where all the elements that go into film-making and storytelling work to absolute perfection ... look no further than right here in director Jeff Nichols' sophomore effort of "TAKE SHELTER" ... a combination family-drama/apocalyptic horror that hits all the right emotional and dramatic beats for its viewing audience. It's a film about so many things and themes that you can relate to in the real world ... "family responsibility" ... "the mystery of uncertainty"…
