    Film #12/31 for August Scavenger Hunt #53!

    Much better film when watched for the second time. I could appreciate this film much more as a whole. When I watched this film for the first time, I loved the first 45 minutes of it, but I hated the rest. Now, I can see why is film structured like that. After a rewatch, it is clear how well structured this film is. It has a typical 3 act structure, but you have…

    Film #6/30 for April Scavenger Hunt #49!

    This will be more an analysis than a typical review because I'll be talking a lot about the characters, their behavior, their reactions and motivations, and mainly relationship between two main characters so there will be spoilers. Be aware.

    Watched the director's cut.
    Firstly, this had to be mentioned, this is not a biographical film that represents 100% true events. This is a mostly fictionalized version of events with the same people in…

    I guess the only reason for Aronofsky to buy the rights of this film was to remake it in 2010, only with a touch of ballet. Props to him, at least he had the decency to pay for the rights (I know he bought the rights because of recreating one specific shot in Requiem for a Dream, but Black Swan and this film are thematically very similar).
    Without any doubt, I can see his…

    ★★★½

    I honestly don’t remember when I was surprised like this about a film. I didn’t read anything about it and I just went into it. I expected mediocre and unnecessary sequel to the second part, and what I got was the complete opposite of that.
    The aspect with which I was most surprised was the writing. This was a well-written film and who would expect that from the Bad Boys film. It’s clever, it keeps you in the suspense for…

    ★½

    I barely can remember what was happening in this film, it's very forgettable.
    It seemed like this film didn't know what it wanted to be. If it was trying to be comedy, it failed. If it was trying to be thrilling, it failed.
    Tone of this film was all over the place. In the one hand, you have "tense" moment with serious music in the background, and then, from nothing, David Harbour had to shout some badly timed comedic lines.…

    Film #11/30 for April Scavenger Hunt #49!

    This film looks astonishing. From the mesmerizing cinematography to the beautiful  natural lightning. Kubrick didn’t want to use studio lights, so he used natural lightning for the whole film. For example, in the scenes where is night time he used only candles as a source of the light. In order to do so, he used Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm f/0.7 lenses. There where only 10 of those in the world, Kubrick had 3…
