The Breakfast Club (9/10).

 

I wish I had seen this movie when I was in High School.


Seen it when it was showing in the theater back in 1985, watched it again when one of our local theaters was showing it for a one day retro throwback earlier this year. A classic indeed and still  enjoyed it as much now as I did back then.

The Way Way Back (9/10)

 

Very funny movie with a great cast.  Sam Rockwell is by far my favorite actor.  I make a point to see everything he is in.  As always he doesn't disappoint.   The man's a genius.  Allison Janney was a pleasant surprise.  She stole every scene she was in and had me laughing out loud at points.  If you come across this don't skip it.

Man of Steel 4/10. What a way to destroy a monster budget... That said it´s not easy to make something useful with such a main character.

Captain Phillips 8.5/10

post #14240 of 15550

Is Captain Phillips still an awesome film even if you know the story of what happened?

Before Midnight - 8/10

 

First few minutes...wow this is awkward...well that's kind of the point.

Ten minutes later i'm watching the main characters all talk about nonsense in a car and it's not even interesting to listen to. Seems pretentious.

At this point I'm thinking i'll never make it through, but then I kind of warm up to the movie and then even find myself enjoying it. Just before they get to a hotel i'm thinking that I haven't enjoyed a movie this much since "Mitsuko Delivers". It takes a nose-dive at about 70% of the way through. I won't say why but it gets a bit tedious and it makes me REALLY dislike the wife in the movie.

 

For me Ethan Hawke really carries most of the movie. If it wasn't for his natural acting skills than it wouldn't have been that good. For me he's kind of a likable character in the movie and I often took his side in some parts. He does kind of look like he hasn't showered in a month. :tongue_smile: There seems to be some extremely long takes. I don't know how you can keep up such good acting for that long.

 

The movie is much different than other movies because it's mostly lots of people talking and having interesting conversations. Usually while walking around, driving or having dinner. Not much else. Non-stop talking really. It's similar to say going on vacation and spending time with your family and friends. Not all the talking is interesting but most of it is. Does it sound boring? Well it's not. It's mostly fun to watch. It's pretty funny during many parts. It reminds me of my vacations with my family sort of.

 

The last 10 minutes made up for the annoying hotel scenes.

 

I wish more movies were like this and had tons of dialogue/talking. These days it's like Hollywood is afraid of boring people.

 

I have to say my favorite thing about movies is probably the acting.

 

BTW when the movie was over I was shocked it was already nearly 2 hours. Felt like it was over in a half hour!

 

Suggestion: Watch all 3 movies in the series in order.

 

 

Is there any other movies out there with just talking? No, seriously. Only one that comes to mind is "My Dinner is Andre".

This one was pretty good...takes place in real time and the whole thing is shot in a hotel room. 

 

 

 

 

Also found this: http://www.imdb.com/list/1qGAkjHERjA/

 

 

 

 

I'd say this one falls into that category, as well...and it's pretty funny:

Gravity 3D - 8/10

 

Not a Bullock fan at all but the movie sucked me in. Love these type of semi(?)-realistic claustrophobic movies. Good job!

Just noticed Julie Delpy from the picture and what came to mind is 2 Days in Paris. Really like that movie. After seeing Before Midnight you might be overdosing on her though. Boy is she a big talker. I bet she is like that in real life :smile:

I thought there was a lot of talking in the last Woody Allen's movie Blue Jasmine ( 2013). Cate Blanchett might or should receive an Oscar for her role.

 

Watched today Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - 2 ( 2013). I liked it more than better hyped Despicable Me - 2.

I'm half way through this and for some reason I'm just bored to tears....it's probably me, cause the reviews are excellent...and I love the cast, I'm just not engaged with what's going on at all. Hoping the second half gets better, cause so far it seems like literally nothing has happened.

The way back if it´s the movie I saw was okay nothing more.

 

Gravity 3D on the other hand wow 9,5/10. To many logical fallacities though. Okay some may help telling a better story so okay but it would been a perfect 10 if they could have avoided that. Stories don´t always have to be original you can just tell them better.

Yeah, I think we're in the minority, but I thought the Way Way Back was just okay, as well. The 2nd half held my interest a bit more than the first, but it felt like a movie I've seen 100 times before. Critics seem to love it, though, so others will probably enjoy it.

The Way Back - 10/10 (Not the one you're all talking about!)

 

Survival movie about 5 people who escape from a Russian POW camp and flee to India. Over 4000 miles while nearly starving and not enough water. First they have to go south through winter and then west through Tibet and across the Himalayas(!)

True story apparently. Takes placed during WWII so they have to take very specific routes to avoid capture.

 

I skipped this due to average reviews but what a mistake! It's definitely not your typical Hollywood movie and might be too slow for some.

I found it very realistic. Very low key acting and it's no thrill ride but very interesting. Hard to believe that's Colin Farrel in it!

 

Scored this movie for $3 from a local convenience store called "Circle-K" in Michigan.

I remember this one...some of those scenes that showed the physical breakdown were pretty intense. I couldn't imagine having ever done that.
