Terrific colors, music, artwork, animation. What a sensational joyride.

Except the unnecessary narrator. It doesn't need to be narrated.

 

 

 

 

Next film to watch: Twilight.

Twilight: New Moon

I killed my roommates. That's how bad it is. 

 

P.S.: I'm going to finish this **** franchise. So, in the end, I may end up in mental hospital.

For some reason I'm reminded of the diner scene from Grease where Danny is acting like he wants nothing to do with Sandy because all of his friends are watching.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013): 2/10

 

Some films adapted from young-adult fiction franchises do their utmost to build appeal outside of fans of the books. They accomplish this with fine acting, carefully crafted directing and writing, excellent production values, and intelligently configured broad appeal. To this category belong the Hunger Games and (especially) Harry Potter franchises. Others adaptions are solely for the fans of the novels--they're not concerned with nabbing big-name stars or directors or screenwriters with fine credentials. They're not particularly interested about reaching a wider audience of potential fans, either--they've already got a built-in audience that will see the film and adore it no matter how wooden the performances or ill-explained the setting or how terrible the production is. All of the above applies to Twilight, and it applies equally well here. Indeed, all that really needs to happen is that they've gotta fill the roles with attractive faces--which at least this film does well, and then some. Otherwise, there is very little here to redeem it--the setting and plot elements are all imported from dozens of other, considerably better fantasy stories, with nary a unique twist to be found. The already dismal and dull plot (I've already quite forgotten what the cup is that the whole movie's plot hinges around, or what it even does) stretches on for too long, and eventually just devolves into endless fight scenes. (Perhaps the film's one high point is a shirtless Jonathan Rhys Myers hamming it up as only he can during the climactic fight.) The rest is forgettable, by the numbers fluff--and its attempts at edginess (gay characters) are drowned in its wearisome and decades-stale appropriations of grimdark religious imagery and goth/biker/punk style. (Can't we just all agree to leave goth fantasy to Neil Gaiman?)  2 points--one for each of Lily Collins's eyebrows. 

 

Blue Jasmine (2013): 8/10

 

Woody Allen's best since at least the early-mid 90s--better even than 2005's exceptionally tuned Match Point or 2011's somewhat sloppy but nonetheless magical and charming Midnight in Paris. Blue Jasmine is a full-on psychological drama simmered over pitch-black comedy and utterly devoid of a 'Woody' character--not that Jasmine isn't a neurotic mess. She's just a mess of a higher plane--and as portrayed by Cate Blanchett she makes for an utterly unforgettable anti-hero, if that's the right word for her. The supporting performers are no slouches either (which is to say, they're all amazing, and would be impossible to upstage in most situations), but this is Cate's show, and she takes full advantage of it. I don't think her cold, regal bearing and voice have ever been put to such fine use before. Watching her here is like listening to a musician possessed of the finest technical mastery over their instrument of choice--it's as spellbinding as it is alienating. Jasmine is a wretched, dangerous, and pitiable creature, revolting and sympathetic in equal measure. It's a shame that the rest of the film doesn't totally live up to the promise of her performance--it's a little uneven and unfocused at times, and relies a bit too heavily on contrivance to be fully satisfying. Still, can I just take a second to say that I'm extraordinarily happy to see Allen still making good films? Among living directors there are very few that I would place ahead of him, and most of them haven't made anything really good in a long time. (Martin Scorsese and Werner Herzog are the only two that spring immediately to mind.) Keep 'em coming, Woody.

El Bulli: cooking in progress - 6/10

 

Gorgoues stills, interesting soundtrack, nice cinematography but I spent half the movie wondering if something more interesting would happen and the other half grinning and wondering how people could be so awesomely crazy.

 

 

 

 

Sword of Doom 8/10 (would be 10/10 but my download didnt have subtitles)

 

All the parts I didn't understand were dialogue driven but other wise a phenomenal movie. Highly recommended

To be honest i wouldn't even give it a 1. Did you know that Twilight got rejected 14 times before being published? Its a movie for 12 years old girls and it will always be that way..

Due Date: 

 

7.8/10

 

Great movie with a nice story. Plus with Zach Galifianakis, everything is funnier :D

 

 

 

 

BTW, does anyone have any good comedy/drama movies to watch? Doesn't necessarily have to be very new, just need something funny and entertaining.

I just found out tonight as well...I can't even begin to explain how pissed I am that he did that. He's been my favorite actor for nearly a decade...had apparently been clean for over 20 years, and he was aware of the fact that he was slipping recently...can't believe this. What an absolutely huge loss.

The Prisoners 9/10- Great movie, but a bad ending. A good suspense movie overall. They did a great job, as you fully never know who the kidnapper was. The whole movie came together really well, but I felt they made a poor decision on the ending. It just did not make sense and was almost a try hard ending, when something simple would have made much more sense.

 

Rush 9.5/10- Just a damn good movie. I can not think of one fault especially when I find a lot of these biographical type movies to be kind of lame. Formula 1 racers were absolutely crazy back in the day. 

 

Pretty impressed with these 2 dramas, after seeing a bunch of basic ones lately. These 2 came out being surprises.
