-Overly chaotic opening scene; hard to follow the action

This is the weakest part so far of the Rebuild franchise, but being an Eva fan I…
This is definitely one of the most gorgeous films I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. I never thought that government propaganda could be done with such beauty. The film is compromised of several short stories about the plight of common Cubans and without a doubt the one about the poor farmer is the most emotionally gripping. That's not to say that the others aren't well done as well.
Have strong leftist views? You'll love this film.
Have strong right wing views? You'll still love this film.
Brando absolutely kills it as Terry Malloy, a troubled ex-boxer who does what he has to do to fit into the crime ridden world he lives in. Right off the bat we witness that Terry is much more than just some brainless goon, unlike the rest of his crew he lets his conscience show and openly objects to the brutality of Johnny Friendly's(played brilliantly by Lee J. Cobb) organization. My main criticism would probably have to be the lack of…
What I liked:
- Cute story
- Cute Amelie
- Cute humor
- Parisian atmosphere
- Travelocity Gnome
What I didn't like:
- Perhaps a bit too cute for my liking, felt a little bit forced at times
- A reminder that Amelie is not my gf
I would definitely recommend this if you are fan of Wes Anderson's work, the narrative and humor is very much in the same vein. This has me looking forward to watching Jeunet's other films.
The unique style had me really intrigued for the first part but at about the half way point I was so focused on Kung-Fu's ass that I sort of lost track of the plot. By the end credits I was more aroused than frightened. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting film and also my 100th film watched since joining Letterboxd earlier this year! Worth a watch, probably funnier with friends and/or alcohol.
Although "The Master" is not on the same cinematic level as "There Will Be Blood" was, it's still excellent. Joaquin and Hoffman play off each other so well and is definitely the high point of the film. The scene with the two of them in the jail cells is so god damn brilliant that it had me in awe the whole time. You can tell that these guys really gave these performances everything they had and it makes up for the slightly weak direction. Will definitely be rewatching!
You will definitely gain a new appreciation of not only sushi, but food in general as an art form. This documentary takes on several themes including: the importance of determination and hard work, generation clashes, environmental concerns, and the difficulty of living up to expectations. All of these themes are woven together masterfully throughout the film and by the end a craving for fresh sushi will overcome you.
WARNING: Do NOT watch on an empty stomach! May cause excessive mouth watering!
Great Mel Gibson action flick. It gets a little cheesy at times but it's a good balance. The whole design of the Mexican prison was wonderfully done and even though there's child character, he really holds his own next to Mel. It's just a shame that Hollywood won't let this wide, more people should see this.
Right from the get-go I could tell that I was going to be in for one of the strangest and creepiest anime movies I have watched. Even during the opening pop idol concert with the really lighthearted, bubbly pop song I felt a sense of darkness looming. And as always with Satoshi Kon, the animation and story are beautiful and I'm definitely going to be checking out his other works. Although you may be confused throughout, I highly recommend this film.
This was both one of my first horror movies and my first Hitchcock film and I still love to this day. It sounded silly when I first read the synopsis as a kid but man did it freak me out. It's not a perfect film(mainly in acting department), but it will definitely keep you interested throughout.
