I do wonder how many ideas Stiller could fit into that thought below on the poster before it bursts.
I find Noah Baumbach movies to have this very laid back style to them even when there are very serious moments like when Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson had their argument scene in "Marriage Story" the whole scene still had this very laid back feel to it.
Ben Stiller is a very interesting actor, when he is in major comedies his…
“You can’t forget something and it follows you around like a ghost”
So the moment I saw the blood-stained poster I knew my family needed to watch this movie just so I could keep making the joke that, well, they’re me and my sister.
It quickly became clear that wasn’t really a joke I wanted to make, neither was it a joke I had time to make because all brain power was dedicated to trying to piece everything together.
A high benchmark in American crime cinema, Michael Mann's Heat was always going to gain notoriety for bringing Pacino and De Niro together on screen for the first time, but that the film does so with this screenplay and this level of filmmaking craft only sweetens the moment more.
On paper, Heat looks like a cops and robbers tale; in reality it's a superlative character piece, fuelled by a brilliant LA atmosphere and anchored to a thematically rich narrative. It…
Charming, heartfelt, funny and even sad at times, My Neighbor Totoro exemplifies genuine artistry found within cinema, specifically animation. This is what can happen when everyone involved is on board with the story, the imagination and the ideas, and nobody holds back from making this product what it is -- memorable! I can only imagine having full creative freedom can result in such a genuine film.. or in Miyazaki's case, films.
This is only the second film of Miyazakis that…
The 58th and most recent release (as of my viewing) in the Disney animated canon, also a sequel to Frozen. At the beginning of 2019, I set the goal to watch all of these movies by the end of 2020 and paced myself to do it all in exactly two years, at least until a pandemic forced me to stay home and I had more time to watch movies and ended up getting through a solid five months early. Neat!…
“I’m gonna try and watch the mcu films in chronological order.” - Me.
Now here I am, watching Aquaman instead and GOD DAMN I think this film is badass. I haven’t watched it awhile so I was just blown away by how much I enjoyed this. Jason Momoa just takes this character and makes it his own and he’s completely awesome. The film is fucking gorgeous to look at; the action is shot fucking brilliantly and I think they did…
You can see elements of Taxi Driver in this, Schrader's latest character study, except of the Vietnam War our anti-hero was railing against, here its pretty much everything that pushes Ethan Hawke's slowly unravelling priest over the edge.
Beginning as a musing on environmentalism and social responsibility as Hawke is called by a luminous Amanda Seyfried to counsel her husband, it slowly brings much bigger targets into its sights - the general apathy the modern institutions have against socio-political issues;…
No sé si será mejor que la primera de Alien, pero sin dudas esta es mi favorita de toda la saga.
Una gran película de acción y ciencia ficción. Expande más el universo que nos presentaron en la primera y la historia de los xenomorfos. Sigourney Weaver como Ripley es magnífica, icono del cine. El resto están muy bien, sobretodo Lance Henriksen y Carrie Henn. La acción mola mucho y toda la tensión está muy bien hecha, todo el tema…
It would have been enough had this been merely visually stunning and narratively imaginative, but then they had to go and make it creepy as goddamn hell as well.
I didn't quite connect with it like I'd hoped (maybe inflated expectations after getting so much enjoyment out of Miyazaki's earlier works), but I can't deny it casts a powerful spell. It's also true that - due to other obligations - it took me parts of a few days to watch it this time around, which I'm sure did it no favors.
I think I was too invested in the movies capturing the Spider-man mythology correctly to really appreciate this movie the first time. My main complaint was that it was trying to do too much in one movie and it didn't do any of them well. That is still my complaint for this movie. I think the Sandman story could have easily been one movie and Venom could have been another. However, I think the story of Peter and MJ was…
Apart from On Stranger Tides, which I consider the nadir of heartless, bloodless, artistically bankrupt blockbuster film making, I LOVE the Pirates of the Caribbean films. They’ve deeply fucking weird, insanely idiosyncratic action/horror/adventure films teeming with ghosts, skeletons, Lovecraftian hybrids and monsters. They also happen to be about as expensive and impressively realized as big budget film making gets in the modern era.
I saw Salazar’s Revenge (never not gonna call this by its foreign market title) once in theaters…
I got nothing but pure entertainment out of this and it was just so good, scary and creepy in all the best ways possible. The effects, though just a bit dated in a few places are still just perfect.
I have no words for that last bit of the movie, it goes all out in the best way and it's some of the best horror scenes ever.
