Into the White - 9.5/10

 

About a group of 3 German pilots and 2 British pilots who get shot down in the middle of nowhere during WWII and have to try to survive together during the winter with no food.

Makes me wonder what I'd do in that situation.

 

It's based on a true story. Have you seen "Hell in the Pacific"? It has similar themes.

 

You can rent this on Amazon for $7 in HD. It's a bit expensive but it's a theatrical release (or so they say) and worth it.

 

I imagine most people won't like it as much as me. I like survival stories and anything related to WWII.

Memento (2000): 10/10

\


Review: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Memento is a really confusing movie, the story is told backwards, but if you pay attention to the little details you'll see that the story is really good and well written.

Now, the plot. So this guy named Leonard has short-term memory loss and lost his wife on a "murder", that's what he thinks. He is looking for this guy named John G. The guy who "killed" her. He doesn't exist, it's a made up character by a Cop named Teddy. Leonard keeps killing people and he keeps forgetting about it because Teddy keeps giving him made-up stories of the guy who supposedly killed his wife. Teddy wanted him to have his "revenge". Leonard keeps mentioning this man who also suffers from short-term memory loss, his name is Sammy. Sammy and Leonard are the same person, Leonard just doesn't know, and he thinks he investigated Sammy's case. This is a great inspiration they took from Fight Club's Tyler Durdeen (a character inside The Narrator's mind).

So Sammy (Leonard) had to give his wife a shot of Insulin at certain times of the day. But his wife is trying to make him to recover his memory, so she keeps rewinding up her watch and keeps telling Sammy to give her the Insulin shot. He shot her 3 times since he thought he never did. His wife died of an Insulin Overdose, Sammy (Leonard) thinks someone raped and murdered her.


Great Movie.



If you want, I'll review Taxi Driver and The Godfather.

Not exactly. I gave Project X a 7.5. Back To The Future a 9.0, The Groods a 6.0, Zero Dark Thirty a 7.5, The Impossible an 8.5, 300 a 9.0, That's My Boy a 7.0, The Red Hot Chili Peppers's A&E Biography a 6.0, Hugo a 2.0, The Dictator a 6.0 and Frankenweenie a 0.0.

Where's the pattern? I only give 10's to movies that I think are masterpieces. And I only watch masterpieces, so you see my point.

Totally agree with the "great movie" statement, but I found Inception much more dense and complex.  Memento is "color backwards" "black and white forwards."  Well acted and unique and intense.  Christopher Nolan is one hell of a great director and writer.

Nolan is the greatest. The difference between Inception and Memento is that Inception focuses on depth (keeping up with the dreaming levels) and time (focusing on the time conversion), while Memento focuses on memory (you need to remember stuff) and clues (you need to match up the clues too). It's all about preference. Fight Club is also very complex and confusing.

He is definitely a fantastic director, but his brother wrote both Memento and Inception...I'm sure he had input though.

 

Edit: Correction, he wrote Memento...Christopher Nolan wrote Inception...my bad!

That's right. Jonathan wrote Memento.

Remember, he is the producer, not the director. But this film looks very promising in the trailers....

I enjoyed both Frankenweenie and Hugo. I don't really like Martin Scorsese's movies but Hugo was pretty nice. The idea behind the movie is the appreciation of the magic of cinema. 

 

 

 

Quote:
Hugo is an extravagant, elegant fantasy with an innocence lacking in many modern kids' movies, and one that emanates an unabashed love for the magic of cinema.

 

Frankenweenie was a lot of fun to watch on IMAX.
