    The Rock


    One of the most agreeable Michael Bay films. Nothing particularly evil or strange in this one and generally scratches the itches you'd want a '90s era classic feeling summer blockbuster to hone in on.

    Nic Cage paired with late career Sean Connery leads to a charming buddy dynamic and each are doing a good job here. Bay directs a selection of great action like you'd expect. Delivers on some huge "hell yes" type moments with an accompanying rousing Hans Zimmer…

    Harmony Korine was riding on the pulse of something magnificent here, and with time I think this has gotten even better. It's a visually astounding piece which turns Florida into a neon acid nightmare world. The way this dreamily flows from scene to scene is just fantastic and over time I've come to love how unbound from certain traditional storytelling beats it is.

    So much incredibly strong imagery and generally an atmosphere to die for make this an earnest film that smartly positions juxtapositions of vulgarness & vapidness with beauty & tragedy.

    I do like this film's ambitions to be a smart blockbuster, but it ends up feeling like a watered down version of a greater ideal (in this case: the graphic novel it is based on).

    I don't have too much good to specifically say about this film, but overall it does function as a decent blockbuster. It has its exciting moments and the core plot is interesting and mostly engaging. There's a few decent mindless action scenes as well. Hugo…
