I make theatre but movies are cheaper to see thanks to AMC A-List
There was a time when Will Smith was one of our greatest movie stars. While Ali isn’t the best movie he was ever in, it’s one of his most electric performances. He doesn’t mimic The Champ as much as he flows in the same rhythms. The physicality, the cadence, and the swagger phenomenal.
The first half of this movie clips and the opening montage covers every base a biopic can in a fraction of the time. It’s a sports movie…
Watched as a double feature with The Last Detail, this is definitely more my speed Ashby’s movie. These movies rhyme with each other so perfectly.
The more I watch Giamatti in this role, the more subtleties I notice. He’s one of the best we got.
Honestly, for this years Oscar’s, the only nominee I wouldn’t be happy with to see win Best Actor would be Bradley Cooper
Nothing like a movie about yearning and wondering about the past to make you sigh deep wistful sighs.
Pair this movie with Before Sunset, where two people experience young love and then revisit it years after the fact. Whereas that film has the ending that an audience may want and crave, this one has the one they deserve.
An examination of what we leave behind as we grow up and if we don’t just reincarnate over lifetimes but in our singular time on this earth.
