I rewatched this to prepare for the new movie and I'm so glad I did. I liked it a lot more this time, mostly because I paid attention more. Zachary Quinto makes a perfect Spock, I think he has a phenomenal screen presence. I loved Leonard Lemoy and I found the plot used to include him was effective and engaging. I'm so pumped for the new movie now!
I felt that this film was perfect. Signature Baz Lurhman cinematography and editing. Flawless Leonardo Dicaprio performance. Spot on Carey Mulligan performance. Toby MaGuire actually didn't suck, in fact, he was rather pleasant. The special effects were stunning, I almost wish I had seen it in 3D. The symbolism was abundant and rich.
I reread the first couple pages of the book before going to the movie, and the first fifteen minutes of the movie were dead on. A perfect adaptation.
As a die-hard Moulin Rogue! fan, I can honestly say that you will not persuade me out of my opinion.
I want to apologize to all you film experts and to anyone and everyone who has seen more movies and knows more about them than me, but I'm going to flat out say this:
Argo did not deserve to win Best Picture.
I can't say I didn't like the film, but I did not think it deserved to be called the best picture made this year, or the most artistic or the most interesting.
I thought the best thing about…
I am ashamed to say this was my first time watching this movie. As a kid I know I've seen the prom scene where Marty rocks out on the guitar, but I had never seen the movie in it's complete form.
What took me so long! Of course it's dated and a little silly but it is such a good film! It's funny and heartfelt and completely enjoyable.
Michael J Fox is perfect.
