    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

    ★★★½

    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a very peculiar movie.

    On one hand, it's wonderfully shot and both the acting and the story are very solid. However, the tone is off at times, unsure whether it's extremely serious like it should be given the subject matter or if it's just an ordinary drama that forces you to feel because of the said subject matter.

    Bullitt

    ★★★

    Honestly, I watched Bullitt because of the chase scene, which is simply brilliant. It uses San Francisco's unique geography to create a very special experience.

    The same thing cannot be said about the rest of the movie. It's a standard, largely forgettable police procedural with some good performances, most notably from Steve McQueen as the lead lieutenant Bullitt.

    The ending is supposedly tense, but I lost interest in the story long before that. It's tedious and too long, but it won a Best Editing Oscar, so what do I know?
