Three hours of non-stop swearing, people getting high or drunk, prostitutes, strippers and lots of yelling and people acting stupid.

Hard to believe Martin Scorsese made such a film. Should have been rated NC-17.

 

Sounds like a typical Scorsese movie. :biggrin: I'm not a fan of Scorsese but I feel like I have to watch his every newest film cause of his high status.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to this one! I absolutely loved Casino, and people have been telling me it's even better than that... it's getting high praises pretty much across the board.

Saving Mr. Banks (2013): 7/10

 

Charming and littered with excellent performances, but also uncomfortably commercial and brutally sentimental. Very enjoyable on the whole, but you'll probably come away feeling a bit used by it.

The Hunt ( Denmark, 2012) 10/10

 

 

WOW! What a disturbing movie! It doesn't happen often in cinema that I occur in the skin of a protagonist, that I feel his pain and agony. This is the rare case. There is another movie - one of my favorite this year 'In the Fog', which also touches the same theme - wrong judgement and its dramatic consequence on life of a protagonist.

Possibly the best movie I've watched this year.
Gives a clear picture of a society where our hardware fails the software, where an accusation is a judgement in disguise, the scar of which a person carries all his life. No redemption is ever possible.
These 'bins' allow us to carry all our hatred and disgust in a nice giftwrap of social justice. The irrational used to justfy rationality. Pathetic.

Are you one of those that liked Casino more than Goodfellas? I am. Both of those are two of my favorite movies for sure.

I really need to buy "Goodfellas" on Blu-Ray. Haven't seen that one in a long time.

 

I wish they could make more films similar to those..

 

BTW this is for anyone, but I made a top 100 favorites movies list a week ago! It was REALLY tough!

 

http://letterboxd.com/tdockweiler/list/top-100-favorite-films/

 

Pretty easy way to make favorite movies lists.

 

For 2014 i'm going to keep a log of every movie I view as well as it's rating.

 

Have to say that 2013 has had a lot of good releases to the theater...some of the ones I wanted to see though didn't make it to my city. Like "All is Lost" with Robert Redford.

A lot of good releases?

Most of them didn't live up to the hype.

City Lights (1931): 10/10

 

The only movie that can reliably reduce me to tears. Charlie Chapman at the peak of his considerable powers. God. I love it.

The more I read about the performing arts (books, movies) of that era, the more I'm impressed. Down to earth, depicting reality in the most charming manner. Not to hold anyone guilty, but make a case for the ordinary man.

Such movies in today's era have been sidelined as 'Indy' films. Hollywood has gone bombastic.

post #14620 of 19979

Sorry for rating more than 1 movie but I got late to this thread and I wish to contribute as much as possible.

Cinema is one of my loved arts.

 

Life of Pi - 8/10

 

The fascinating story of a boy that survives 225 days on board of a little boat adrift in the ocean with the company of a tiger.

Visually stunning and very well directed.

A beautifull film.

 

 

The Hurt Locker - 8/10

 

A film that portrays the precarious existence of a little Explosive Ordnance Disposal team in the Iraq war.

Very well directed, excelent acting. Intelligent, thrilling and very raw (in all aspects) from beginning to end.

It manages, in an interesting way, to lay bare how insignificant and vain can be the motivations that lead someone to submit itself to the distress of warfare. I'll have to watch this movie again as I feel that it has a lot more to absorb than I got in just 1 view, will probably rate it higher then. This and Kathryn Bigelow's most recent work, Zero Dark Thirty which I'd rate at least 9.5, share the same cinematic tissue, very raw and intelligent portray of real events, but they have a lot more under the surface, a lot more than a literal interpretation of what happens on the screen can unravel.

 

 

Avatar - 9/10

 

This movie is not particularly intelligent and has some lackluster acting performances but it still managed to cause a great impression on me. The visual delight, the rich variety of fauna and flora in James Cameron world and the technological competence to animated it ( I consider the CGI Na'vi characters much more interesting than the human characters from an acting perspective, which is a lot of praise for the quality of the animation here) are certainly the factors that most contributed for the impact of the film. This is the kind of cinema to experience through the senses and emotions and not so much to analize. It's one of the most marking cinematic experiences I've ever had, although I've seen it only in 2D. The type of movie I'd wish to watch as a child. I feel like seeing it again...

 

 

Wall-E - 9.8/10

 

A nearly perfect movie in my humble opinion, very well developped and intelligent and an excellent experience for little ones and grown ups. I don't really know why I don't give it a perfect score... As usual with Pixar stuff animation quality here is top noch, it doesn't reach the hyper-realistic and immersiveness heights of Avatar but this comparison is probably not fair because I'm comparing films with different cinematographic principles. Despite not providing the sheer sensorial immersiveness that Avatar provides and as consequence submitting itself more openly to intelectual scrutiny, Wall-E leaves nothing to be desired and manages to have as much emotional impact in me as Avatar which makes it all the more brilliant. I've seen it 2 times and I want to see it again. It deserves to be considered a classic of animation cinema!

 

 

Drive (2011) - 9/10 (last I watched)

 

Beautifull movie, beautifull cinematography, competent directing and acting, superb sound design (about time someone uses some brains in sound as well!). Far cry from the typical crime movie with lots of nonsense violence and lacking brains (this movie as some pretty gore violent scenes though!). Drive is, instead, a full-fledged stylistic reverie with great taste and almost flawless technical execution. In some rare moments this wander is taken a bit to far IMO, almost to the point of what I'd consider maniac but nothing too detrimental. A unique and very interesting cinematic experience, this is clearly captivating for my tastes. I'm definitelly going to watch it again.

 

 

Next 1 I'll see is probably Sin City.

Alone in the Wilderness

 

Documentary about Dick Proenneke, a 51 year-old man who moves to Alaska to make his own log cabin 40 miles from the closest town where it gets down to 50 below in the winter. He documents his stay himself with a tripod and videocamera back in 1968.

 

You guys have gotta see this. 

 

9.5/10

Queen of Versailles

 

About a 74 year-old billionaire whose 41 year-old wife's spending habbits are put in jeopardy after the real-estate crash brings them from the clouds back to reality. There are some very interesting scenes if if the characters aren't the most likeable

 

7.5/10

Word Wars

 

Highlights the lives of 4 professional scabble players whose vastly different personalities come out in their struggle to make ends meet playing a board game. Hilarious!

 

9/10

Indie Game

 

Some video game developers grind out the challenges of making a successful videogame.  This one kept me captivated the whole way through. Definite watch.

 

9/10
