It's probably just me but The Triplets of Belleville is the most overrated film I've seen in awhile. Sporting a 7.8 on IMDB and a 94% tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes I expected to at least like this film. Instead I found the story to be completely uninteresting and boring. The animation was good I suppose, but even that didn't impress me much. Other than that I don't have much to say about it. I guess it just wasn't for me.
Film 7 in my Re-watch Wednesday Project.
Cujo is the first movie I ever saw in theaters (at least as far as I can remember). I saw it with my mom (a life long horror fan) in 1983 the year it was released. I would have been 6 or 7 years old. I always remembered liking it, and gave it credit for being one of the films that turned me into a horror fan just like my mother. It was…
"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.
