To Rome With Love (2012): 5/10

 

There are glimpses of the charm and wit I associate with Woody Allen here, but only glimpses. Perhaps if this had been a short film it would have worked much better--as is it's mostly just a dull but pretty-looking film with a couple of chuckles tucked away in its folds.

 

Grosse Pointe Blank (1997): 7/10

 

The only scene I remembered from this movie prior to re-watching it last week was that part where the guy is playing Doom II in the convenience store as a gun battle rages behind him. I was surprised by how much I began to remember as it went along. Not a great movie, but a fun one, and it's got a pretty killer soundtrack, to boot.

I really loved that film...not in an "I want to see it again!" way, but in a "wow, that movie really affected me during those two hours" way. Very, very well done. 

 

Django best movie of the 2000s?? Really?

Considering how good it is...I could get behind that, yeah.

Wow, well I'm glad to see you guys feel that way, in all honesty. QT is probably my favorite filmmaker, so the more props his work gets the better! For me, I'd say Django is my 4th favorite QT film, behind 1) Pulp Fiction, 2) True Romance (writer), and 3) Inglorious Basterds. Probably many would rank Django above Basterds, but I just think about how affected by and engaged with each film I was. Christoph Waltz was great in Django, but in my opinion he gave a performance in Basterds that was one of the greatest supporting performances of all time....maybe even the best I've ever seen. It takes a LOT for me to feel intimidated by an on-screen character, and that's even with the understanding that I usually allow myself to just get sucked into the films when I'm viewing them. He took the Hans Landa character and scared the HELL out of me from the very opening sequence of the film. It was a performance that captivated me then and it's stayed with me over the last few years and with each successive viewing. Just an unbelievable job. I didn't really feel that Django had that type of performance. I don't mean that as a knock at all, cause I really did love the film....I just didn't feel there was anything there that really left me in awe like I felt with Landa. I think Leo DiCaprio came the closest for me, although the acting was solid all around. 

 

All in all, I'm just a huge fan of QT...and even though I rank Django fourth among his films, like I said, these are all among my favorites ever.

Casino - 9/10 ?

 

When I was around 16 or so I loved this movie. Felt it was perfect. I think I first rented it on VHS back when it came on two tapes. I don't know why but the VHS version seemed to look a whole lot better than the DVD version I watched. With this viewing it seems like something was missing. All the small things I liked before I didn't even notice as much.

 

This time around I kind of felt a bit sorry for Sharon Stone's character. Just a little bit. Who knows what kind of drugs she was on. It was one big mistake for Sam to marry her when she said she didn't love him. Previously I felt like she over-acted a bit, but now I think it's ok considering the state she was in.

 

Funny that this has a record number of F-words in the movie. While watching it it doesn't feel like it...

 

I've always preferred this to "Goodfellas", but I'll need to watch that one again...

 

I do have to wonder what it'd be like to watch the VHS version again...

That was a good one, and I really liked it the second time around as well. DiCaprio gets some killer roles.

I concur with your list, and really like really like Jackie Brown as well so that would round out my top 5.

Jackie Brown often seems to be the forgotten QT film for some reason...I agree that it certainly deserves to be in the conversation for his best films. Although it seems that every time I start making lists of my favorite QT films, I can usually make an argument for MOST of them lol. I know he has his detractors, but for those of us who are fans, he really puts out consistently enjoyable films. I look forward to his projects every time I hear about a new one. Speaking of which, IMDB lists his next project as "Kill Bill vol.3"....interesting

Which one?

Today I just watch "Into the wild", based on true story, very good movie, a lot of wisdom to learn in that movie. One of them is "Happines is only real is shared".

Is there anything that man hasn't done? It truly beggars belief.

Great movie 8/10. The Jon Krakauer book is much more detailed 9.5/10.

I think now that "The Master" is my favorite movie of 2012. One of the reasons was that I felt emotionally connected to the story. I wish Joaquin Phoenix gets Oscar for the leading role. He was outstanding.

 

Another one which I recently enjoyed was "Warm Bodies".

+1 for the master! But it will never get any reward, since its a clear critic of Scientology.....and since Hollywood is completely infected by these guys......no reward.......
