This is a comedy. It is always a fun ride. I love this movie. It is quick, it is witty, the actors are top notch (Hoffman was nominated for an Oscar, De Niro and Ann Heche could also have been nominated) and Mamet worked on the script.

Oh c'mon man, he SO isn't underrated, especially in that movie. Freeman brings the usual gravitas, Spacey is as compelling as always (one of my favorite actors), but Pitt overacts like an amateur. ;)

He's funny as hell in Snatch, though.

Nevertheless, as far as "Hollywood Heartthrobs" go, if you want one that can actually act, stick to Leo. Guy's got game. :) Pitt belongs in high-budget soaps.

I agree though, it is a really decent movie. Casey Affleck is an extraordinary actor. He's really terrific in everything he's in. Crying shame that he's not in a lot more movies. Pacing of the movie seemed a bit plodding at times, but it was well acted and directed.\

Superb cast on top of their game: the Wilson brothers, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller, Danny Glover, Anjelica Huston, plus the great Gene Hackman and Bill Murray. They are all awesome, thanks to a great script. That narrator is Alec Baldwin.

This is wonderful storytelling, it's quirky but not too much.

About Elly (http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/reviews/sfiaaff-2010-review-about-elly.php)

it revolves around a short holiday which becomes disastrous in Iran's Caspian Sea coast.
powerful and engaging film, remarkable direction by Asghar Farhadi, all actors have played their roles to perfection.
special mention needs to be made about Golshifteh Farahani's enthralling performance.

yes, i would say, it's a real work of art with aesthetic value.

Cowboys and Aliens

It took some time for the movie to get going but even when it did it still looked slow paced to me. Overall it wasn't bad but I didn't enjoy it much. I don't like westerns and I only went to the cinema because I saw the trailer and in the IMAX it really looked cool. But just like in District 9 I kept wondering why were aliens portrayed like some illiterate savages. One would expect a civilization smart and technologically advanced enough to build such space ships would at least have a coherent speech and not just some growls. There were other things that bothered me but I better don't get into details and be picky. Daniel Craig was cool, Harrison Ford - good but very old already for action like that and Olivia Wilde - well, she was beautiful.
All in all I don't regret watching it.

a foul-mouthed Irish sergeant (Brendan Gleeson) and an uptight FBI agent (Don Cheadle) join forces in an hilarious dark comedy-thriller with the emphasis on the cumulative black bone-dry humour in the dialogue. a thoroughly engaging Gleeson steals the film with a brilliant comic performance. love him.

I loved the first half of the movie which was very charming, but as it goes on it's pretty much the same thing over and over again. The ending was a bit blatant.

Not bad, but I have 2 major problems with it:

1- the puppy scenes were really too subtle. A fucking puppy for God's sake.

2- one of the shooting scene looked weird, as if all the dudes trying to kill Bale were each in a separate one man mosh pit waiting to be shot at.

Apart from that, it's a very enjoyable movie.

Yes, Hoffman's character is hilarious. A really good satire.

Saw Van Sant's Restless last night. A sweet and touching film, doesn't deserve the negative reactions it has been getting. As usual he captures youth so well. Mia Wasikowska is the stand out, very impressed with her in The Kids Are All Right and she was brilliant in In Treatment. Henry Hopper looks very much like his father.

Moneyball. Pitt continues on his good streak. As I posted, I saw Warrior a few days ago which was a typical, yet enjoyable, sports movie. This though is just a completely different take on the genre. We don't really get to know any players or watch any tense matches unfold, just one match is focused on significantly. This is all about the inner workings of money and trades in baseball, and while I know nothing about baseball I thoroughly enjoyed it as the same problems effect, for instance, soccer. My one qualm was that PSH was underused.

Saw 'Drive' last night and I must confess that I'm really impressed. This is maybe the best movie I've watched this year. Gosling (an actor who never caught my attention until now) is INMENSE here, Carey & the rest of the cast are ideal too. Some influences from Melville's movies, some others from 'Shane', some touchs from Bronsons' & Eastwood 70's thrillers are there too.
The lights, the camera angles, the music (retro -techno), the use of the silence and of course the fucking scorpio jacket makes this film a classic movie. I'm still in shock.

Olsen and Hawkes are very good and the film has some very haunting and unsettling moments. The deliberate pacing, the silence, I thought I would love this and thinking about it now I don't know why I didn't, maybe just not in the right mood. I almost feel it wasn't the sum of its parts.

Girl, Interrupted --I finally got around to watching it and before the movie started there was a message that said the movie had been edited to fit the time format. Actually the movie was edited out so they could edit in about 100+ commercials :rolleyes:

I like the cinematography and the settings, costumes etc. Yes the leads actors/actress are good. But i don't like the sex scenes, too much :help:

I understand that the first sex scene is "invading/possessing", after that, the remaining sex scenes changed because of the increase of love. But still i don't think it is that reasonable the main actress comes back to the main actor after such "rude" sex :scratch:

Super 8. A good dose of nostalgia and not just for Spielberg's early films and the 70s but for when summer movies were actually good :lol: Plus I generally like this kind of small town setting and films that contain film making elements.

Here is my interpretation.

Note spoilers below. I am going to write in small, light colored font in case anyone wants to watch the movie. So please ignore this post.

The lead guy is an extremely lonely man. He spends his days interrogating people and beating them to death. The only way he feels alive is when he is hated. He tells her as much when he meets her after the first "****". And it is not like she goes back to him willingly. Her whole life has been empty, her previous efforts wasted and the only thing she has to keep her going is her "mission". That's why she agrees to go back to him. But gradually, even such a brutal man finally and painfully and slowly softens and begins to trust the girl. The sign of that is when he offers her the jewelry. At that point, the girl discovers that the man is human and is capable of love afterall. Their conversation in the Japanese quarters is hugely revealing when he claps like a child after she sings. That is why she takes the decision in the jewelry store despite knowing what it will bring her. Imo, she is finally at peace after that moment.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Actually I understood what you mentioned, just that I find it not very reasonable that the man, knowing how he treated the girl in their first sexual encouter, would still expect the girl to come back to her (he clearly has a lot of interest on her, as evidenced by him not forgetting her after 3 years, so he must have wish her to continue staying with him). I mean, he could have treated her a little bit better, to give a better impresson for her so that she won't run away.

And as for the girl, I mean a normal girl, if not for the mission, i don't think she would continue staying with him.

And I still find it unreasonable that, even though the mission was being supported and covered by some secret society, a man with such powerful status and smart would be "cheated" by this girl, not having a little bit of suspicion as to whether she has a mission to destroy him :shrug:

I mean, he could have treated her a little bit better, to give a better impresson for her so that she won't run away.

I am not sure we are speaking of the same timeline. She goes back to him after 3 years. He recognizes her and he is actually lusting after her all this time. My guess is that he is very suspicious of her initially. But his lust is greater than the suspicion. His first mistreatment of her( This is after 3 years) also comes partly from the suspicion apart from everything else. Once that happens she plans to leave but is not sure what to do. When she is getting ready to leave (after 4 days or so) he asks her if she hates him and she replies yes. She doesn't have a chance to leave at that point. And things things evolve the way they do with the first scene of the movie taking place after one year of their being together. By this time, he has begun to trust her and even love her.
And I still find it unreasonable that, even though the mission was being supported and covered by some secret society, a man with such powerful status and smart would be "cheated" by this girl, not having a little bit of suspicion as to whether she has a mission to destroy him :shrug:He does suspect her most of the time I think but his other emotions take over. I read that much of it was actually based on a real life incident so maybe such things happen.

:lol: It does. I guess I need to watch Bande a Parte now.

Rewatched Cape Fear a few months back. Still my least favourite Scorsese/DeNiro collaboration, though it was less camp than I remembered it to be. Hope they get around to The Irishman, or anything. Marty has been attatched to a lot of new projects recently, none of them sounding too interesting. Hopefully he gets to Silence next then The Irishman.

Black Book. An absurd, trashy, yet gripping and very enjoyable film.

The Hit. This one did not go the way I was expecting, a nice suprise. Tim Roth steals the show, reminded me of Day-Lewis. It seems Frears is going to be remaking it.

Cape Fear is good.

The Fellowship of the Ring. After The Hobbit trailer I felt it was time for a rewatch, it has been about 8 years since I've seen any of these and longer since I've read them. This one was my favourite, sadly it was not as good as I remembered. The pacing was just awkward, from one set piece/obstacle to the next and all the dialogue was exposition (an inherent weakness sure, but it was so clunky at times). Still an ejoyabale ride and some great individual moments but it felt a little too much like a list being checked off. Maybe the extended edition corrects these problems, holding off on watching the other two until I can get them.

The Believer. An interesting film, shares similarities with American History X. Gosling is good as a self loathing Jew turned neo Nazi.

Danny: Oh, right. Because the bullets go right through ...

Danny: My rabbi, Rabbi Perlstein, used to say we are all guilty in the eyes of God.

I really enjoyed it, unexpectedly.
7/10

Also, Drive.
I do not get the fuss about this film at all. Thought C. Mulligan was totally miscast, Gosling was trying too hard to be De Niro (in Taxi Driver esp.), hated the soundtrack, profoundly, and the screenplay was full of holes I couldn't overlook. The film is obviously very, very well made, I see the craft in it, it's great, but the first five minutes were fantastic and then I felt very disappointed later.
4/10, basically only for the action scenes.

Maybe you'll like some parts? I think I just expected too much and focused too much on the negatives as a result. It still has points to watch it for.
Carey M. is ok but just doesn't fit in the whole story. She always plays the same "cute, blonde, repressed" type, if they'd just scratched one of those 3, it might have worked. You should watch and judge for yourself anyway. ;)
