So I’m not a fan of digital copies of movies. That being said, does anyone want my digital copies of the BluRays that I buy? Inbox me if you’re interested. I just got The Wolf of Wall Street and I have a few others. Pretty sure Django has one and The Act of Killing.
I just finished The Counselor and wow. Never have I struggled so much with caring about a movie with everything going for it like I have with this. Honestly, I didn’t care for a single scene about this movie. I lied to myself for thirty minutes that I would get into it eventually, but the credits are rolling as I type this and Jesus Christ I don’t even know what happened. Don’t ask me because I’m serious, I didn’t follow it at all.
There was honestly a message at the end that said “The making of this film supported 13,000 jobs” and I guess that’s nice? People gotta work! Cameron Diaz is horrible and wow. This was just terrible.
Wow, that was surprising. I’m in love with everything about this movie. It’s so refreshing even though it’s not a super original idea. Which is exactly what I needed. Everything that came out this year was hyperbolic or just extreme in some sense or another (graphic even). I needed this simplicity. This piece of life. Perfectly captured in black and white. Watch it please.
I honestly think my top five films from last year are in order as follows:
The Place Beyond The Pines
The Act of Killing
The Wolf of Wall Street
What were yours?
Don’t get me wrong, I love Ron Howard, he’s a great guy. But I think Rush lacks the raw intensity that another director like Michael Mann would bring to the film. There’s nothing here we haven’t seen before I guess. Idk. For such a dangerous sport, the film seems rather tame.
I’m sitting here in awe watching The Act of Killing. The people that made this had to just keep pinching themselves because the things these men are saying—it’s just unbelievable.
Why are so many people trying to make carbon copies of 300 when it wasn’t even that amazing in the first place?
The fuck was this Hercules trailer I just saw
Gravity was a crowning achievement in film that has never been done before and is likely to never happen again. Watch this movie. It is magic. It is wonder. It is inspiring. I cannot wait to see it again.
If you asked me to recommend one film to blow you away this year I would have to say Upstream Color. Or The Place Beyond The Pines. Both actually but Upstream is just the most outstandingly different film I’ve ever seen and I’m trying to formulate words to speak about it but they won’t even scratch the surface of how astonished I am right now.
"Her" is going to be huge. Huge.
