    Chef 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2015

    In general, I don't like movies that are designed to let me feel good. It's like the guy in a bar that starts out a joke by saying: "I know a really good joke, you'll love it. So… "
    But I do have a soft spot for this film. It's really fun to watch, the script is sharp and the actors seem like they are enjoying themselves.
    Of course, writing a part where Sofía Vergara is your loving ex and Scarlett Johansson is 'into you', does stretch it a bit … like the ending is. But the road towards it was fun and looked damn tasty!

    Not even close to the quality of the 2003 TV series. I understand the raised the bar back them but still… .
    The fact that the viper scenes in this pilot look very low budget doesn't help with the overall feeling. And I know it's hard to avoid cliches in space opera, but please try.

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Mar, 2015

    Another superbe performance of Jake Gyllenhaal. Thanks to his performance and the work of Dan Gilroy & Robert Elswit (who are making you feel LA like never before), this becomes a movie that will end up on more than a few LB lists.

    PS. Louis Bloom is well on its way to become an iconic movie character.

    I'm hitting 'like' on rhythm of Antonio Sanchez.

    I don't know what I enjoyed the most, the music, the camera work, the excellent mix of drama & comedy, the fact that Iñárritu keeps the same level for two hours straight… or just the superb acting performance of entire cast, Keaton especially.
