    ★★★½

    Pretty good movie. Felt like it had too many quick cuts, but that's pretty common for and early 2000's movie. I think it was more of an action/thriller than a traditional horror flick. My favorite parts of the film are how Danny Boyle portrays isolation and the score was sooooo good. Had some really trendy music was some suspenseful stuff, which I was surprised by. I also really like Cillian Murphy and Naomi Harris. I should check out more of their stuff.

    Boy I love a good western, it's quickly becoming my favorite genre. The characters in 3:10 to Yuma are just so rich. Glenn Ford is a real charmer. I was also surprised by the amount of suspense in this film. The score really helped with that. I think this is one of my favorite looking movies too, with the locations, the lighting, and the fluid camera movements.

    I will never not cry when Aragorn says "you bow to no one". In this trilogy I am always amazed by the use of scale and perspective. It is seamless.

    Pretty good. I really loved the sound design and visuals. The narrative device was pretty neat too. My major issue, and is pretty common for my feelings on Nolan films, Is that I did not connect with any of the characters at all. They were just kind of there. Also, wasn't as grueling as I expected for being a war movie. There were some visceral moments, but I feel like I was more impressed with the execution of the scene more than my investment in the story.


    All in all, looks good, but leaves something to be desired.
