The flight sequence was great but not much else.
The trailer for this film was very well put together and made it look so much better than the reality. The film drags on post-crash before staggering to an unsatisfying conclusion.
Editing it down, cutting the lengthy 2hour17minute running time would do it a tremendous service.
Denzel is good but cannot salvage this one.
Rewatching this for the first time I can finally give my definitive answer on the extremely important question of No Strings Attached vs FWB.
Definitely NSA >> FWB.
Both feature uncommon first acts before moving to a more traditional romcom conflict and resolution but NSA's comes off as leaner without so much fluff and unnecessary complex plotlines like Justin Timberlake's dad having Alzheimer's.
Kunis and Timberlake are charismatic but the comedy just doesn't hit as strongly as in NSA and while…
Don't really know what to think of Warm Bodies still.
Hoult and (surprisingly) Palmer were good and had to be with so much screen time of just the two of them.
The concept is interesting but isn't fully realised on screen and gradually the result becomes less and less as the film wears on.
Maybe I'm crazy but I enjoyed this. The reviews seem a bit harsh to me.
It's certainly not hilarious but it made me laugh a few times and kept me interested, that's enough sometimes.
The inclusion of a love story seems unnecessary and the mystique around Rockwell's characters place is just for weird for weird's sake but other than those things it is inoffensive. The development with the children might be overly simplistic but they still seem well handled to me.
Best one yet!
The original films are boring now by comparison entrenched in just street racing. Now they've successfully made the transition to action flick that happens to involve a little street racing, they're bigger and dumber than ever.
Just gotta say the intro of Gina Carano's character is the oldest trope in the book. Made me laugh. Besides stuff like that and action sequeneces that test the limit of how far you can suspend your disbelief, Fast 6 is…
Didn't meet my expectations. Going to watch the Stallone version soon for lulz.
The effects were nice and all but some of the slow-mo sequences seemed a little self-indulgent. I'm a patient man but some of them dragged on.
My favourite shot was the reflection of a fire in Dredd's visor. Nothing revolutionary but twas pretty.
The story left a lot to be desired but I guess it's an effective B movie.
Enjoyed this more than I expected to. I'm not a fan of Baz Luhrmann's previous efforts. (I may or may not have called him a hack at some stage, seems like a nice bloke though)
The soundtrack as ever plays a integral part in Gatsby and Luhrmann's films. The set-up of the psychiatric sessions was probably necessary for the transition to film but annoyed me. (I'm interested to see the Robert Redford Gatsby to see how they handled this)
Going through Kubrick's early films so I can say I've seen his whole filmography heh. (Don't have Fear and Desire at the moment though :/)
You can tell it was made on a shoestring budget but it is still a nice little flick. While it doesn't have the polish of later Kubrick films it certainly contains some interesting shots. (the fishbowl was my favourite and Kubrick utilises some choice angles in the fight)
The ending came off strange to me. Is the protagonist a complete fool?
First film of Hong Sang-soo's I've seen. Watched it for the neogaf movies thread. Yoo Ji-tae looks a bit chubbier than in Oldboy lol.
I feel like I wasn't pay enough attention to this. Missed a few things I've since picked up in other's reviews. I enjoyed it though. The conversations were interesting and the interplay between the central three characters is the main thematic structure.
