Dawn of Director Joe

Posted : 1 year, 3 months ago on 23 March 2016 09:49 (A review of Don Jon)

I have an issue with writers and directors starring in their own movie where they have sex with a bounty of beautiful women, including Scarlett Johansson. It's very egoist and obnoxious enough to take me out of the story.

Luckily for Levitt, Tony Danza, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson, and Rob Brown proved to be a fun supporting cast. Notice I didn't mention the repulsive Julianne Moore. She was the worst part of this film.

Teddy 2 Tones

Posted : 1 year, 4 months ago on 31 January 2016 04:56 (A review of Ted 2)

This sequel certainly didn't have the same effect on the general public the first one did; but I didn't find it worse in any way. Perhaps people wanted something new in the second, or perhaps they just didn't want a second...

Either way, it's it has plenty of funny scenes that take make up a decent enough comedy with a funny cameo that could have been so much funnier. Can't spoil it for you.

Needing More Heart in this Sea

Posted : 1 year, 4 months ago on 31 January 2016 04:55 (A review of In the Heart of the Sea)

Fiction inspired by fiction inspired by non-fiction. While the film is certainly gorgeous in its production design and full of genuine action scenes involving a huge whale it also doesn't boast any strong themes or create any true emotion. It's basically a soft retelling of a hard story.

There also didn't seem to be a climax, which is kind of crucial to a story. And how did Chase come back from being starved and burnt to looking like he did at the beginning after being rescued for a few days?

Still, it's difficult to call this a failure, as Ron Howard has put together an impressive production and this is a good seafaring adventure

More Life Needed

Posted : 1 year, 4 months ago on 29 January 2016 03:21 (A review of Life)

A method film about being method, a film about a photographer for Life, a film about life.

It's difficult to like this film. I am a huge fan of Corbijn's work; yet I must face the fact that this is his least successful picture.

Pattinson is awkward, uninteresting and at no point do I care about his struggles. DeHaan emulates Dean very well but this is also a character that doesn't create much emotional interest.

Some of the highlights are the story itself, the production design and the cinematography.

Chappie No Home

Posted : 1 year, 4 months ago on 29 January 2016 04:14 (A review of Chappie)

Blomkamp proves he still has a lot to prove since his impressive 'District 9' debut. This movie is a bit misunderstood and under appreciated yet I completely understand the underwhelming positive reactions to it. What I've said makes as much sense as anything in this movie

A True Grind

Posted : 1 year, 4 months ago on 26 January 2016 02:46 (A review of Mississippi Grind)

Mendelson and Reynolds make a decent duo in this formulaic movie that has the usual frustrations that come with gamblers.  

It's a true grind, so at least the title is accurate.

Ryan Fleck does a fine job at the helm, but he had a lot of promise as a young filmmaker with 'Half Nelson' and 'Sugar'. He seems to be taking a step back here.

Not Trash

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 19 January 2016 03:07 (A review of Trash)

Stephen Daldry is a pretty consistent director and this movie is no exception. However I couldn't help but desire more from a director that has directed such emotional films as 'The Reader' and 'The Hours'

7 Days in Hellarious Gags

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 9 January 2016 03:11 (A review of 7 Days in Hell)

A silly mockumentary that had me laughing quite a bit. It has a great pace to it but I found the finale to be a bit of a letdown. There are two casting choices that prevented this from being even better: Kit Harrington and Lena Dunham

Strong Man, Weak Cut

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 6 January 2016 04:29 (A review of Strongman)

An entertaining yet poorly edited documentary about a very interesting and strange subject and world unfamiliar to most. This could have been handled more creatively, been shorter and had more of a purpose by the end. But hell, I can't deny the entertaining subject and his passion.

White House Down to Kill

Posted : 1 year, 5 months ago on 6 January 2016 03:35 (A review of White House Down)

A generic action film with laughable moments (both intentionally and not) and likable leads. It's better than "Olympus Has Fallen" in that it doesn't take itself too seriously. Perhaps with time some of these scenes can be iconic for kids my age when I saw 'Independence Day', perhaps...
