    ★★★★★ Arielrocks5 Rewatched by Arielrocks5 24 Sep, 2016 25

    Why does this movie mean so much to me? Why does a film about a guy doing his every day job on the moon leave me in such a pit of tears? Why does Duncan Jones' attention to detail make me envious of my own skills? Why does a movie made on a budget of five million dollars in 2009 look better than everything that has come out in the past five years?

    Because Duncan Jones is a great storyteller,…

    Sometimes a director looks back upon their life's work and they see what they might be remembered for. In the case of Lawrence Kasdan, when I was growing up, he was thought of primarily as the director of The Big Chill and as writer of the Star Wars Movies and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. He did some other stuff too I guess. When he was given the opportunity to direct a prestige Stephen King film for Warner Brothers, an…

    Blood and fat drip like rain from leaves after a storm if that storm left ears and eyes behind, no control, no mission, just reverberation.

    When you are already dead and you know you are already dead but you are simply not dead enough.

    To stumble into sunsets would be funny if not otherwise.

    Your body is a chrysalis for the butterfly that is non-being, harbored within and burning like a negative-flame, accelerating the…

    Jim Kurring: "I can't let this go. I can't let you go. Now, you... you listen to me now. You're a good person. You're a good and beautiful person and I won't let you walk out on me. And I won't let you say those things - those things about how stupid you are and this and that. I won't stand for that. You want to be with me... then you be with me. You see?"

    ★★★★★ AlexDavies Added by AlexDavies 3

    Zack Snyder’s deconstructive and nihilistic take on our favorite American heroes is a modern masterpiece of the superhero genre, the best of the decade by leagues. And boy do people hate seeing them deconstructed to the bone and played within a chaotically told punkish whirlwind of big ideas. And I cannot understand why. I was captivated to see Batman and Superman on screen together for the first time. An experience I’ve waited my entire life to see and feel.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★★ Gary Busey Rewatched by Gary Busey 26 Sep, 2016 10

    Nolan's masterpiece Interstellar champions the idea that humanity thrives when we dedicate ourselves towards discovering and conquering the unknown; striving to grasp things such as love, discovery and human connection. It's an epic and ambitious poem that treasures our capacity for survival, that longs to find a vision for a selfless and compassionate humanity. It transcends sentiment; forging a newfound and groundbreaking approach to finding that beautiful, singular element to what we call the human condition.

    There's a key scene,…

    ★★★★★ Graham Williamson Rewatched by Graham Williamson 24 Sep, 2016 29

    "Look up here, I'm in danger."

    It is 1976, and David Bowie is in trouble. The record company is hammering on his door for Young Americans 2, and all the songs he's writing are lengthy, bleak, and fixated on occult and religious symbolism. He is subsisting on a diet of milk, peppers and cocaine, and preserves his chalk-coloured complexion by never opening the curtains of his house. He has recently completed a film - his first major feature - and…

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2010

    ★★★★★ Wes Ball Rewatched by Wes Ball 26 Sep, 2016 3

    A perfect comedy about teen angst and growing up socially awkward, Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is drenched in a relentlessly charming atmosphere that never insists on being taken seriously. This video game-comic book movie hybrid is fueled by an excellent screenplay from Wright and Michael Bacall, creating an endless stream of witty dialogue with a constant upbeat tempo and incredible musically-charged fight sequences. The action choreography is flawlessly executed, creating a stylized environment that completely embodies its…

    ★★★½ Arielrocks5 Watched by Arielrocks5 27 Sep, 2016 18

    This film features one of the worst first acts I've seen all year.

    From the get go, there's an opening sequence that acts as a sorta gender bended "Pirates of the Caribbean" knock off that would make The Asylum laugh to the point of tears of how terrible the green screen and visual effects look.

    Then after that, we're introduced to those horrifying looking creatures we saw in the original movie (which I honestly didn't hate but that was before…

    Christopher Nolan's legacy will be his ability to marry high-concept, intellectually challenging premises with profound human emotion, engaging us on both a cerebral level but also on a spiritual one. He'll be the director most credited with birthing a new generation of film lovers across the world; stretching the medium to it's limits and artfully exposing everyone to what modern cinema can be; what the medium can achieve when wielded by a master storyteller such as himself.

    ★★★½ Todd Gaines Rewatched by Todd Gaines 27 Sep, 2016 10

    What starts as a training exercise, soon becomes a most dangerous game for a group of FBI profilers. Each character's strength is also their biggest weakness, and this fatal flaw could be their downfall, or even their death.

    "Critics" give Renny Harlin a hard time. I can't say much for his later work, but he's made some very entertaining movies in his career. Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea and The Long Kiss Goodnight stand out. He's an action making machine, and…

    We got to pump the stuff to make us tough
    From the heart
    It's a start, a work of art
    To revolutionize make a change nothin's strange
    People, people we are the same
    No we're not the same
    'Cause we don't know the game
    What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
