I was very sceptical going in since I pretty much can't stand most modern horror films, as in they're boring as fuck. I've gotta say, it follows surprised me. I felt the film was doing something fresh. Just imagine some relentless supernatural T1000 mofo hunting you ass, that would surely freak me the fuck out. I'm happy to have watched this film directed by David Robert Mitchell.
I'll have to watch this again but as much as I agree with lots of reviewers about the shallow and over the top characters like ninja and the mommy character, Neill Blomkamp definitely makes interesting films that have more depth to them people/critics give him credit for!
As usual with Mr. Blomkamp's films, the visuals look stunning and I can't not be amazed how he is able to bring his creations alive and into the "real" world.
What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!
One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
