I watched Evil Dead the other week and it was brilliant, there were def a few jumpy moments throughout the film.

For those of you who havent seen it i would recommend it.

I've watched Iron Man 3 two days ago. It wasn't bad even though the Mandarin stuff was disappointing but it could've been way better. The bad part about this movie in my opinion was that they tried to focus a bit too more than they should on the funny scenes

Skyfall I'm a TV guy so I watch more TV series than movies.

I thought Skyfall is a masterpiece. What makes 007 better than MI or Bourne is that there's so much depth in the story, it is not just all guns and actions. There's so many dimensions and so much drama in it that it captivates you and really touches you at the end. And this is coming from someone who hate action movies.

My Neighbor Totoro - Not my favourite Studio Ghibli film (Spirited Away > Princess Mononoke > Hal's Moving Castle > My Neighbor Totoro) but still such a great, charming and beautiful film.

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

While I was on the plane to Tokyo (and then back ^^) I watched:

- Anna Karenina
Took me a while to get used to the style, but in the end, I liked it. For once, I found Knightley convincing. I am beginning to see why Joe Wright can be an interesting director.

- 7 Psychopaths
I had loved In Bruges, so I knew I would love "7 Psychopaths", and it didn't fail to deliver. It may not be your typical Oscar-worthy movie, but it's original, clever and funny. I laughed my ass off (even though I was on the plane ^^)

- Casino Royale
Had to watch one half and then the other, so I didn't quite follow the story... But I do like Daniel Craig as Bond, after all. And God, is that girl Eva Green super gorgeous. Even I, as a straight woman, found her mesmerizing.

- Wreck it Ralph
I enjoyed it, it was cute, funny and full of clever ideas.

- Life of Pi
I also enjoyed it, but I did not understand everything (partly because of the accents, partly because I was on the plane, and partly because I had eardrum perforation, which doesn't help).
It was visually very beautiful, I'm not sure I understood everything about the message, sometimes it was a bit slow, but overall I liked it.

- Argo
I really loved it. True, there were a few things that were really stereotypical and made me cringe a little (action/thriller clichés), and I knew they must have tampered with the "true story" quite a bit.
But that first scene in the embassy with the mob outside... It's so scary, I was completely immersed in it (I must admit, few things scare me as much as a crazy mob).
And the parts in which they prepare the fake movie are just hilarious.


And more recently:

-The Grandmaster
by the great Wong Kar Wai, starring the great Tony Leung Chiu Wai as well as Zhang Ziyi and Chang Chen.
I liked it, but I cannot say I was enthralled. I was expecting a lot, of course, from this highly anticipated, and long-awaited movie... In the end, it was visually gorgeous, as any Wong Kar Wai movie ought to be.
The actors were flawless, of course. The story was a bit difficult to get, as is often the case with Wong Kar Wai, but you can tell that if you watch it several times, you will find more and more interesting things in it.
Otherwise, I have the same problem with it that I had with the most recent Wong Kar Wai movies: I have the feeling that he likes to watch himself film, and tends to forget about the viewer.
That's why I personally enjoy his earlier films like Chungking Express or Fallen Angels the most.
But anyway, I don't want to deter people from going, The Grandmaster is a beautiful, clever, extremely well-crafted movie with great actors, like pretty much any other Wong Kar Wai movie. If you love kung fu, of course, you have to go.


Oh, and I had almost forgotten another one:

-Wuxia (aka Dragon or Swordsmen... they gave it so many names I can't even follow).
I had been waiting to see this one for a long, long time.
Why? Because it has my idol Takeshi Kaneshiro in it, and because it was directed by Peter Chan, and so far, Kaneshiro's collaborations with Chan were always interesting.
This movie starts Kaneshiro as a rather strange detective, and Donnie Yen as an apparently ordinary villager who might also be a martial arts expert in disguise (of course the whole point is to find out whether he is, or not).
The beginning of the plot is very close to that of A History of Violence (with Viggo Mortensen): an ordinary guy becomes a hero by killing some bad guys and saving the village, but by doing so, he attracts the attention of a detective who believes there is something fishy with the way this "ordinary" guy killed two expert killers.
Visually, it is stunning, the actors are great, and I really enjoyed it.

Saw Vicky Cristina Barcelona the other day.

I've heard good things about it and have to say, I was a little disappointed. The movie is overrated in my opinion. Penelope Cruz gives a great performance and her relationship with Bardem's character is great, but otherwise the movie was about some rich and fortunate people and their love drama... I couldn't relate to any character and I didn't feel like the movie had a point (it probably didn't).

I'd vividly recommending reading the book. The film is very good, but the novel is epic - one of the most well-written, enthralling and powerful novels I've ever read, it's brilliant.

Ted - very amusing. Doesn't need a massive write-up but I was surprised just how much I enjoyed it.

The Hurricane - Denzel Washington puts in a stunning performance. Sadly just like Argo I am confused as to how much I enjoyed it simply as I cannot tell the truth from the fiction.

Rounders - as a gambling man this film is just so unbelievably enjoyable for me!

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

Some films I've seen in the past few weeks:

Shock Corridor (1963)
A compelling viewing, although the narration was a huge defect. I understood its intent, but it impeded the stem of the film, revealing the absolute obvious in the most conspicuous way possible. Nonetheless, an enjoyable film, where most praise goes directly to Fuller's direction.

Elevator to the Gallows (1958)
An interesting film which takes, what seems to be, an implausible narrative and puts an intricate, cogent touch on it. The way everything unfolds is first-rate and reflective of both Malle's method of storytelling and its impressive script. My only critique is the acting which came across as a bit banal.

Detachment (2011)
One of cinema's greatest, undervalued and most audacious achievements. With its radical, nonconformist-like approach to editing and storytelling, this is simply an incredible film. It's extremely artistic, rather reminiscent of Terrence Malick and his bold, quick-cut, excessive style, and cements Tony Kaye as a truly ambitious filmmaker. It's a daring critique of the American public school system and how the problems within the schools interrelate with the problems existing within our society. It's thematically very similar to season four of The Wire, which comments on how mundane curriculum and a need to generate profit (at the expense of the students) is the core problem amongst educational institutions. It's poignant, bold, disturbing, tragic, optimistic, worrying, and dashing. A true cinematic achievement and one of the greatest films I have ever seen, bar none.

Marty (1955)
An endearing and pleasant film which tells a simple story without coming across as too sentimental or mawkish. I enjoyed it thoroughly. One of only two films to ever win both the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Picture.

As a jaded film nerd, I think I've seen every narrative device there is. This movie actually did something to me which hasn't happened in a long while, it mesmerized me. How do I know this? Simple, my mouth dries out when I've been gaping for a couple of hours, and not blinking dries my contacts out, neck gets tight cause I'm as motionless as a lizard on the beach in Cancun (I hate those things).

After reading several reviews, I noticed that some of the strongest reactions came from those who view the universe as ordered, mystical and guided by the benevolent hand of Providence. In The Life of Pi, some of the world's major religions are sampled by the protagonist (motifs for seeking truth and meaning), and his tumultuous and miraculous voyage at sea is followed by his physical salvation when he's rescued. Pi, now an older and wiser man, having lost all, is rewarded with the joy and comfort of family. He's had everything restored to him.

Striking parallels with Old Testament Job, who like Pi, lost his family and his wealth, was put through incredible suffering due to sickness, and while despairing of life, was ultimately restored in the end by Providence. I had a vision of Jonah, when he was gobbled up by the friendly whale and spit unto shore, to safety, and even secular literature such as Coleridge's: The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. That poem also dealt with the theme of trial at sea, and the journey from naive youth to wisdom gained through suffering. All of the major religions have the theme of "trial by fire."

The possible explanations of what really happened with Pi at sea, and his, and our confusion in the recalling of the events, is a symbol for the difficulty in understanding the mysterious workings of Providence, or a higher power. We cannot get a true grasp of the ultimate reality because we are finite, mortal and ultimately very limited beings. As insects cannot grasp our reality, so we cannot understand the mysteries of life, especially the workings of Providence. Even our attempts to explain the simple aspects of life are PATHETIC at best. What we perceive may not be the ultimate reality--existential philosophy. And, does a potentially omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent being see things differently from how we see things? Is that the ultimate measure for what is real? I'd like to think so...Can we, and will we know all the answers one day and see reality for what it really is? Hmmm.

Those who view the universe as Kubrick did, and other nihilists do, as indifferent, or as a lonely place, or meaningless, may find little satisfaction in The Life of Pi. Those who see the guiding Hand, and the sublime and powerful intervention of Providence, will have goosebumps on the backs of their necks!

I never read the book, but this is my take on the movie, and I enjoy how the ambiguity of the film inspires my worldview! All good art does that because it doesn't patronize and beat you ever the head with a rigid explanation.

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

Films I've seen in the past 3-4 weeks.

Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
Gets a bit excessive at times, mainly with the implausibility of its story, but it's a fairly endearing film for the most part, and more or less what I expected.

Le Samourai (1967)
Could not take a shine to Melville's technique here. It's a well-written film, but had a sense of aloofness to it, mainly because of how insipid the protagonist was depicted. I understood the character, but it came across as lifeless and departed. I feel as if charisma is a necessity to tell a story of this nature. Open for future rewatches, however.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)
Engaging coming-of-age drama that manages to tell a fairly intricate story without becoming being too convoluted or pompous. Has some interesting ideas at its base; some being better developed than others, but it was a pleasant surprise.

Red Desert (1964)
A very expressionistic film that depicts the desolate nature of an industrialised state. It's beautifully photographed, but unfortunately felt too insular and remote for me to become immersed in. I can praise the aesthetics of the film endlessly, but that can only go so far.

My Dinner with Andre (1981)
One of the best, most compelling films I've seen that depicts the existential and postmodern thought that skyrocketed in the 80s. It raises many theoretical, metaphysical questions but offers no clear solution, only speculation and curiosity. An enthralling film that engages its viewers on a profoundly conceptual level. I loved it.

Shock Corridor (1963)
A compelling viewing, although the narration was a huge defect. I understood its intent, but it impeded the stem of the film, revealing the absolute obvious in the most conspicuous way possible. Nonetheless, an enjoyable film, where most praise goes directly to Fuller's direction.

True. Great series!

I watched Evil Dead, which was yet another completely unnecessary remake to a superior original.

Also watched The Grandmaster, which was disappointing. The fights were super slow mo to hide the fact the actors can't fight, and the story wasn't compelling. The movie was missing a good hour of development IMO.

25th Hour

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/25th_hour/

Directed by Spike Lee, stars Edward Norton and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

Brilliant film about a drug dealer's last day before he has to go off to prison. The tension builds in an extremely subtle manner as we follow the guy and his closest friends in the last hours before they have to separate for some time. Never too preachy, never too melodramatic, I thought this was an extremely well done film. If you like character-driven dramas, this is surely one for you.

9/10
