Nonetheless, I'd like to think that that's not the whole story, and if it is, then please, I beg you to let me persist in my delusion. ^^

Ike: Countdown to D-Day - 10/10

 

Surprised how good this was. I really can't think of any negatives of this one. FYI Ike is the nickname of Dwight D. Eisenhower.

He's also played by Tom Selleck (who did very well in his role)!

 

This is actually better (IMO) than "Patton", "Macarthur" and something like "Emperor".

 

It reminds me a little of an old B&W film about Admiral William J. Halsey called "The Gallant Hours" (with James Cagney).

 

Both are two war movies without any actual battle scenes.

 

Hard to believe it was a TV movie. Doesn't seem like it at all.

Mad Max: Fury Road.   7/10

 

I'd score this higher but the PTSD version of Max without the gruesome humour Mel brought to the role does not work for me. I understand that the dark troubled (read psychotic) hero is the de facto standard now (Batman, Spiderguy ...) but it really detracts somehow from the overall flow of the film.

 

 I'd have to put this down as Hardy's worst role ever, and it is certainly no fault of his. Theron does well in this role with the few lines of dialogue it gives her. This is an action film in the truest sense. Stallone once said his ideal film would have no dialogue at all, this comes damn close.

 

The film itself I'd say is the reboot version of Road Warrior. It would be interesting to view them back to back. I just have no inclination to ever do that.

Knife in the Water 4/10

 

Largely disappointing, given that Polanski's debut is acclaimed as an early masterpiece in some quarters. Impressive camera work and a nice jazz score don't fully compensate for the banality of the screenplay. I was expecting suspense but instead got a fairly unremarkable character study framed by an age old love triangle. The threat of violence is never real, so beyond a vague sense of claustrophobia and stagnation, any tension is dissipated.

Mad Max: Fury Road - 6/10? I don't know, tough one.  I just know after watching it I felt I could have spent my time that day doing something else, but not enough for me to stop the movie.

Exactly. Action just action. If you are not expecting anything else, this is it. If you are you will suffer horribly:)

Whiplash: 8/10

post #17243 of 17248

 

Vengeance is mine 8.5/10

 

The story itself is not compelling so much as the idea of a man, killing for no reason again and again. His entire world is in shambles and he only cares long enough to laugh and rage.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Inglorious Basterds 10/10
post #17245 of 17248

10/10 one of the best movies of the year. Really!
post #17246 of 17248

Really? How did it improve on the original. I admit I missed the sequel.

LOL...I didn't see the 2nd either, but I have to admit the first one was pretty entertaining.

Dang, I think we have close to near perfect agreement on films so far...

 

I've seen this one probably four times. I love Tarantino flicks. 

 

BTW, one film that Tarantino wrote (but did not direct) is True Romance. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a viewing for sure.
