Director Neil Jordan's Byzantium is a sexy, stylish, and unique vampire thriller with a cool atmosphere. Unfortunately the story isn't up to par with the rest of the film.
In a world where you can't say vampire without someone mentioning Twilight films like this are usually a breathe of fresh air. It offers a slightly different take on the genre. The problem is it's now gotten to the point where the film is either like Twilight or it's not. Basically…
"Gentlemen, you had my curiousity. But now, you have my attention."
Quentin Tarantino has had my attention since the very first time I saw Pulp Fiction. It was the first film I ever saw where one of the first words that came to mind was masterpiece! It was my first Tarantino, I've seen everything he's directed since and I've been impressed every damn time. In my opinion he simply doesn't make bad films.
So with everything I said…
Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon pratical steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
