Steve Jobs (2015) very good, not your typical shitty biopic, but that was expected since it was scripted by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle

The Big Short (2015) Super fun, some unexpected narrative tools used but they worked very well

Re: Last Movie you watched, and what you thought about it?

Spoiler alert.
 
Yeah, I gathered all the facts, more or less. I wanted a personal view and opinion of someone who was there while it all happened. As it is, the film seems extremely parents-biased, but it could be that everything did happen exactly that way. Which would be beyond outrageous - practically everything suggests that servants did it and that parents are innocent and, yet, parents are convicted. The film even suggests that it has all been done only to justify/cover up unbelievable blunders and stupidity of first investigators and officials.
I have never heard of anything remotely like this, honestly.

That depends on whether the convicted parents killed their daughter or not. The investigation of this particular case was pretty confusing. The parents weren't the prime suspects for a considerable period of time and then were investigated as prime suspects and in the end the agency that investigated the case recommended the court to close the case due to lack of evidence and surprisingly the judge over ruled it and senetenced the parents to life imprisonment.

The accussed parents actually came clean during a series of tests like the lie detector test, brain mapping and narco and the three servants who took these tests hinted about their involvement in the crime but were then acquitted for lack of evidence while the parents were convicted even when the investigative agency said that there wasn't enough evidence to convict them.

You can go though this websiteif you are still interested in this case

Unanswered Questions ? Justice for Aarushi Talwar

If the parents were indeed involved in the killing, that's probably the worst thing a human could do i.e Murdering their own child. But, the case does have a lot of unanswered questions.

Some neo-noir stuff I recently watched:

Drive - 9/10. Such a unique movie. The silence between Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan is simply beautiful. Fascinating to see the "frog" turn into a "scorpion". Great soundtrack.

Brick - 9/10. Again, such a unique movie. It's a weird idea to put a neo-noir scenario into a high school setting, but it works. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's drive is striking.

Devil in a Blue Dress - 7/10. Love Denzel Washington, that's why it's still a 7, but he surely had better roles. Great atmosphere though.

The Martian - 10/10. The one and only space movie i found somehow realistic. Watched it twice, enjoyed it twice.

Star Wars (the new one) - 5/10 it was fun.

I think they are both fine films for different reasons. I'm sure the original terrified moviegoers a lot more because of the 'Red Scare' that was being tapped into (for fear and paranoia) at that time though.

Yeah, this film is hugely underrated and a febrile masterpiece. Who cares what Kubrick thought? Art is bigger than the artist. Eyes Wide Shut is a reverie in the form of film with nothing comparable.

Try Dial M for Murder, The Big Sleep (my personal fave from Bogart!), Witness to a Prosecution (courtroom but full of intrigue and most unexpected twists), Rififi (more of suspense).

My favorite mystery movie of all time remains the Korean Memories of Murder.

i am sam, 2001, usa

the screenplay is well-written to the extent that makes the story pretty realistic. Dakota Fanning's act is impressive.

a good film.

Daddy's Home

I usually despise Will Ferrell, but this was actually pretty good. Above average family comedy, despite a truck load of plot holes. 7/10 because Wahlberg is a hottie.

Creed - 7.5/10 - Much better than the last Rocky's trash (2006).

Spectre - 7/10 - Pretty decent, but not on the level of the 60's and 70's Bond movies. I rate this as the 2nd best 007 with Daniel Craig (Cassino Royale the best one).
