Page One Note

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 24 April 2015 12:30 (A review of Page One: Inside the New York Times)

This documentary is about what most of us already know, the impending doom of the newspaper industry. It goes into some interesting detail and points of view with some intriguing characters along the way.

This documentary is well made but would have been completely average if it weren't lucky about timing of certain events...

Pina, Not a Lotta

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 23 April 2015 04:21 (A review of Pina)

I was slightly disappointed in this documentary about the choreographer. After seeing all of the beautiful shots in the trailer I thought surely this would be a moving and transformative piece. Sadly, beyond the beautiful choreography the film doesn't have much to say.

Average Rush

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 23 April 2015 04:11 (A review of Premium Rush)

Lots of great action and decent enough story to support it. However the dialogue is hokey and there are plenty of moments that don't make logical sense; but still entertaining enough.

Scattered But Worthy

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 23 April 2015 04:02 (A review of Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's)

A nice documentary giving us a behind-the-scenes of the prestigious Bergdorf Goodman department store. I watched it for the creation of the windows but it goes well beyond that...

The Author Knew, Man

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 23 April 2015 03:50 (A review of Arthur Newman)

Likable leads in Firth and Blunt. While many of the scenes are entertaining, the whole story never gets strong and it's in that awkward section of not being quite dramatic enough to be a drama and not funny enough to be a comedy.

Lake Flacid

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 22 April 2015 12:30 (A review of Lake Placid)

Best monster crocodile movie, with Betty White, set in the state of New York I've EVER seen!
Say goodbye to the careers of Bill Pullman and Bridget Fonda...

A Lackluster Encounter

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 21 April 2015 12:25 (A review of Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters)

His pictures are beautiful and set up like a film scene and he provides a really interesting story and behind-the-scenes look. This would rate higher if the documentarians displayed and arranged this in a more interesting way, much like their subject.

Not the Last Vegas Movie You Want to See

Posted : 2 years, 3 months ago on 21 April 2015 11:51 (A review of Last Vegas)

This geriatric comedy is full of, well, geriatric comedy. This is to be expected, and if the four main actors weren't so damn entertaining and funny then this would have been a terrible movie. The writing and acting for the supporting characters was amateur and the story is less fresh than any of the said main actors.

The Denzelizer

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 April 2015 07:53 (A review of The Equalizer)





Denzel is the best at looking bad-ass but also entertained by people trying to defeat him, as he knows he is the most bad-ass... but he doesn't look so entertained that you see a smile, there is a very slight up-curve from his lips and the rest is in his eyes (see the above picture for classic example).

Bad Acting with Valor

Posted : 2 years, 4 months ago on 16 April 2015 07:21 (A review of Act of Valor)



The poor acting gets a pass because the cast is mostly non-actors and real SEALs.
The imagery and sound they're able to capture is very impressive, through simple DSLRs with high-end lenses and it gives a rare patriotic (but not over-the-top) spin to the genre.

These guys are bad-ass
