Re: Last Movie you watched, and what you thought about it?
The Naked City (1948)
Beyond its interesting documentary-like approach, this film was just empty and off-putting. Not even its relatively diverting story could make up for the monotonous characters and repellent pacing. In saying that, film noir has never been my thing, but this was definitely underwhelming.
Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2011)
Fairly endearing tale that explores some pretty radicals ideas, although needs much more than eighty minutes to develop them. It also seemed too quick-witted for its own good. Despite this, solid chemistry between both Segel and Helms and a poignant ending makes this good comedy/drama.
A damn disruptive viewing, but from what I got, lifeless and wearisome. I know this is Bresson's style, but it simply came across as unsavoury, and, frankly, flat. This film was divided into two viewings, so everything was slightly irregular, especially in terms of mood. Regardless, a very underwhelming film, where my only praise goes directly to the photography and Nortier's performance.
Django Unchained (2012)
Fun film. I was afraid Tarantino was going to be too excessive with the homages, but he finds the right balance.
Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)
