Pray for Rosemary’s Baby.
Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby has been praised as a horror masterpiece over the years, being cited as one of the best of its genre, and while Polanski’s overall direction and the dread inducing story are truly nothing short of masterful, I can’t help but feel that this film is slightly overrated. It’s not a bad film per say, and as previously mentioned the cinematography and direction by Polanski, as well as the slow building story that…
If it doesn’t scare you, you’re already dead!
For the first forty minutes or so, George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead feels like every other B rated horror film out there. The tropes; cliches; and characters you’ve seen a billion times are blatant, and you start to see where all the horror film parodies over the years came from. But then about half way through the film takes a turn; the situation intensifies; the raw brutality increases; and we…
“I'm sorry, did I break your concentration? I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue, you were saying something about best intentions. What's the matter? Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
Jules: What country are you from?
Brett: What? What? Wh - ?
Jules: "What" ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?
Jules: English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
Brett: Yes! Yes! …
“Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Do not go gentle into that good night.” -Dr. Brand.
Interstellar stands out among Nolan’s truly impressive filmography not because it’s one of his best, but because it succeeds at doing something hardly any of his other films have done; show emotion. Every scene of this film is crafted with the underlying theme of…
Break the story. Break the silence...
There’s a dark atmosphere that plagues this film from the very beginning; an unrelenting feeling and sense of dread that only worsens as the characters get closer and closer to uncovering the truth the Catholic Church was hiding all those years. It not only affects the characters throughout the story, but the viewers themselves, so much so that I got increasingly uneasy as the film progressed, which much like Prisoners is because things like this…
“I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah. We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I'm no different.” -Leonard Shelby.
“Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have fucked with? That's me.”
Yeah I know this entire film is like 99.9 racist, and almost every line spoken could be considered offensive in today’s culture, because Clint Eastwood is the literal definition of a badass, and I will own that statement until the day I die. Oh and yeah and this is a cinematic masterpiece! That’s all I have to say.
