  OMFG, This has to be the best Laika film so far. It has fun and action, but also a deep emotional ending. Except, why the hell all side characters except Neil are jerks and dickholes, to a point it's not believer able? 

 

  Well, I think that's how filmmakers do to force feed messages to audience and hoping they'll get it (Frozen).

 

Monty Python and The Holy Grail: 9.5/10

 

  LLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Was that your first viewing of Holy Grail? If so, congrats...you just popped your cherry :)  Iconic, classic film that, in my opinion, serves as a cinematic rite of passage.

  Oh yes it is. Can't wait to watch something christian from them.

 

  Anyways, since it's Halloween, and who the **** cares other than costume party drunk ****s and children stealing your sweets. So, by celebrating this meh holiday, I'm going to watch some good old horror films (especially the ones with new ideas or no jump scares or both).

 

  Cabin in the Woods: 8.5/10

 

  WTF did I just watch. Evil Dead with secret society? BRILLIANT!!!!! Hahahaha haven't been so fun with horror movies since Zombieland.

COMPARISONS!!!

 

Shaun of the Dead vs Zombieland

 

Story

 

Shaun of the Dead:

 

  Shaun was a salesman with no direction in his life, and have a loser as his best friend Ed. Because of this, Shaun's other roommate Pete, Shaun's stepfather, and Shaun's girlfriend Liz, dislike Shaun.  Suddenly, a zombie eclipse fell on London. Dealing with this issue, Shaun must save, lead and help his mates and his parents.

 

Zombieland:

 

  Columbus joins with Tallahassee to survive. They both got tricked by con artists Wichita and Little rock. After catch up with them Columbus and Tallahassee forgives them and join together to search and find 

 

Winner: Shaun of the Dead focus on leading, finding goals, and achieving, while Zombieland is more of a "Winnie the Pooh" movie. They go there, and make a living out of it. Because of my fondness in focus stories, Shaun of the Dead wins.

 

Humor:

 

Shaun of the Dead:

 

  Good old British humor. I always loved how could they manage to be humorous and silly while flowing like a stream of water. Anyways it is very funny from start till end. Loved the humor. 

 

Zombieland:

 

  Not as much laughs as Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland still brings a lot of humor on the funny things you can do in zombie eclipse. Still very limited.

 

Winner: Shaun of the Dead

 

Zombies

 

Shaun of the Dead:

 

  Slow walking poorly made zombies to be beaten up for laughs and satire.

 

Zombieland:

 

  Zombies that can run, and look bloody like in 28 days later. But don't worry, there's still a hint of humor on them (by being stupid).

 

Verdict: I prefer fast moving zombies. Zombieland wins.

 

Winner: Shaun of the Dead

 

Shaun of the dead: 9.1/10

 

Zombieland: 8.5/10

The Book of Life (2014): 8/10

 

It doesn't strike that nice balance that most of Pixar's and Ghibli's works do, where it's just as entertaining and worthwhile as it is for the adults as it is for the kiddies--but it's still a beautifully designed film with impressive (and in a couple of cases gorgeous) character designs and breathtaking scenery. Absolutely magical. Just don't expect anything from the plot.

Leviafan ( Russia, director Zvyagintsev) won best film at the London Film Festival. Last year at LFF it was Ida ( Poland) which won best film. Both films were submitted to the long list for Oscars 2015 and will probably compete to each other. My favorite is obviously Leviafan. Ida was a passable and underwhelming experience to me.

 

The Tribe ( Ukraine) wins best first feature ( best debut). I've been keeping an eye on this one.

"Gone Girl" [9.1/10]: I usually like films that tell a story in a kind of "non-linear" fashion and this film was no exception. I like seeing what was happening at a given moment from different perspectives. The HBO program "The Leftovers," which I loved, had an episode done in a similar style. I thought that "Gone Girl" was an extremely engaging story. I am a big David Fincher fan; I have liked all of his films, so my rating may reflect some bias. I don't see any of the performances being oscar-worthy or anything, but the performances were better than adequate. With this film the "star" was the story. (...come to think of it, maybe that's a tribute to the performances) I know that I heard a few people in the audience grumbling disappointment with the ending. I personally thought that the ending was perfect. I'm also a dedicated Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross fan, and I was looking forward to the soundtrack. It was subtle, to say the least, and a little underwhelming. Overall, the best film that I've seen in awhile

Oculus: 7.6/10

 

  I'm actually kind of surprised by the atmosphere. It's creepy, weird and confusing. You really need a strong mind while watching, especially trying to understand the plot. Which, in other ways, can be very boring, and that's why I gave it a lower mark for less to no entertainment. Still not bad.

Escape Plan. Very nervous while I watching it.

The breakfast club

Fury - 8/10

 

Extremely realistic, but a bit heavy handed and they constantly wanted to drill into your brain that war is hell. Too much and it just wasn't convincing.

Somehow the realism died at one point and it turned into some John Wayne Gung-Ho nonsense.

 

None of the characters were likable at all to me. It kind of sucks the life out of the movie. There was a good reason for all this and I totally understand why.

The movie is kind of not an enjoyable movie and certainly not a popcorn flick. Kind of a tough movie to watch, but not as bad as "The Pacific" or "Come and See" where you felt you were being dragged through the mud.

 

I'm glad though that they tried to accurately portray war's effects on soldiers. Very few war movies do this very well if even make the attempt.

I'm not talking about battle fatigue or whatever.

 

BTW i've read a lot of WWII books and it seems that war is often 10x more graphic, bloody and disturbing than portrayed in movies. In this movie they showed some stuff that's pretty shocking that you normally wouldn't see.

The "Pacific" is another good Hollywood movie that did this well too. I remember some people claimed HBO just adding on extra blood and guts for ratings, but no they didn't. It's actually toned down!

 

In all those WWII books you always read about soldiers being desensitized by war and doing things that they normally would not do. For example, Trophy hunting for body parts or killing enemy soldiers that surrender.

It makes sense that some would not come home normal after being trained to kill. I probably would not be the same and would have nightmares all my life if I was on Iwo Jima.

 

Oh and the acting of the movie was probably the 2nd best thing about it. No weak acting in the movie from the main characters IMO.

 

I would have rated this one a 10, but I felt they probably changed some things because of studio pressure or something. The last 25% was majorly disappointing.

 

 

PS they need an ultra realistic movie about the battle of Iwo Jima! Nope it's not "Letters of Iwo Jima" which basically ignored most of everything and it was more of a drama (one of my favorites though).
