"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…
To kind of steal a line from The Rock... FINALLY! THE RON HAS SEEN THE AVENGERS!
This film was like when you get super excited as a kid to do something or go somewhere and it pays off. You have a blast, you drive your parents nuts talking about it, and you bounce off the walls with excitement until you eventually pass out from exhaustion!
My Letterboxd friends know I generally prefer the darker comic book films so I was…
There are movies I like and some I love. This movie I fucking love! There is a difference. A movie you fucking love makes you use words like awesome, bad-ass, fuck yeah, and orgasmic when it's over. I'm pretty sure I actually said all of those words to my wife while the credits were rolling. The build up of tension in this film is done brilliantly by Refn. It's so thick you can feel it and when that tension is…
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.
"Argo fuck yourself"
Alan Arkin as Lester Siegel
If you were to compare Ben Affleck the director's 3 feature films to baseball he'd be batting 3 for 3 with the home run being Gone Baby Gone. This film and The Town would be comparable to triples in my opinion. Argo is good to great in pretty much every aspect of filmmaking! Affleck not only directs this film superbly his acting is excellent here and possibly awards worthy. The supporting cast…
Christopher Nolan who was already off to a great start with Following, Memento, and Batman Begins became one of the best directors working today with this film. I don't think we've seen this level of quality in a blockbuster type film since Spielberg's early days and that's really saying something in my opinion. Christian Bale is great as Batman, the supporting cast all do terrific jobs, but it's Heath Ledger actually becoming Nolan's vision of the Joker that steals the…
I was already a Nolan fan going into this one because I was really impressed with Memento, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight. I wondered what he could possibly due to impress after giving us one of the greatest blockbuster's of all-time The Dark Knight. Well what he did was give us another blockbuster, but he also pulled off a rare feat by making a blockbuster with some brains. While it's not the smartest film in the world or anything…
"I was a slut. There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same for yourself, fucker? Can you forgive? Are you capable of that?"
If you are thinking of making a romantic comedy, I beg you, I Implore you please watch Silver Linings Playbook, pay attention, and take notes. If you do that and…
Well this was disappointing to say the least, although my expectations weren't really high due to the mixed reviews the film has received.
I liked the Lord of the Rings trilogy but not quite as much as most people. They were good films in my opinion not great but that's partly because they're not necessarily my type of film. So going into The Hobbit knowing it was the first film of a trilogy based on a book that's not very…
What I liked:
1. It's wonderfully ambitious.
2. Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are both excellent.
3. The overall cast is pretty good.
4. It has ties to Alien.
5. It's a fun watch.
What I didn't like:
1. There's an abundance of plot holes.
2. I like the cast but the majority of the characters are severely underdeveloped.
3. Even at 124 minutes it felt like it needed more detail in every area.
4. Some characters felt completely unnecessary.…
