    That last part where Malcolm delivers his monologue really caught me off guard and boosted up the film a notch for me. This film is truly something the more I think about it.

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Feb, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's a pretty straight forward drama and if you got the chance to see the promo reel, the movie is just like that only expanded. On the positive side, it was really emotional from the romance angle. Many people sniffled during the movie and we all clapped at the end. It showed how regular audience got really engaged and invested in the story. The film like I predicted based on that reel has many court room scene which gives the…

    ★★ Watched 05 Feb, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Mess, but ambitious. Beautiful landscape, production design, and costumes, but boring action. Eddie Redcarpet shows the world what a capable thespian he is that not only he can give bad Oscar winning performance, but he is also able to give beautiful Razzie winning performance.

    Like really though, is he trying to be all Shakespearan with that "performance"?

    And I don't know about Mila Kunis, but imagine any method actor who knows their character is someone who owns Mother Earth. Like…

    "A psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes too far."

    Psychological? Yeah right, lol.

    And the Oscar goes to... Aaah, fuck it. Who cares right? It's amazing Dolan himself can top his epic Laurence Anyways, but this happens. A beautiful wonderful film with well-written story featuring three knock-out performances from the main cast. Dorval, yassss! #BitchWhoLoves

    Tulip Fever 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Nov, 2014 2

    Didn't know what to expect from this film except this would probably be another Weinstein's Oscar drama. But turn out this one came out pretty good and Alicia Vikander is awesome too. The story got more and more interesting by the end, so yeah, this will probably end up as another Weinstein's Oscar vehicle.

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Nov, 2014

    That Cannes Best Director award was very well deserved for Miller. This guy keeps getting better even if this is only his third film. Carell is hammy but creepy, Tatum kills it (like wow), and Ruffalo is MVP.

    Step Up All In 2014

    Watched 30 Oct, 2014

    I always have this tender feeling for Step Up movies. They have good looking cast and the dancing is really cool, that's why. But let's be honest, with an already thin premise from the first movie, the franchise (?) is declining. And omg, this movie is not a comedy by any mean, but I laughed so hard while watching this. Like the script is so bad, the plot is like there yet not there. The acting is horrendous too. It's…

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Oct, 2014

    Truly an achievement in Directing and Editing. But all around this is a major showcase for acting from the actors. From Keaton to small supporting characters, they are all wonderful. Simmons will probably win Best Supporting Actor, but Norton is truly a stand-out here. And also Emma Stone who? More like yes Naomi Watts.
