I was kinda looking forward to this one, because I like my superhero movies a bit darker in tone and the trailer made it seem that way. That is unfortunately not what I got. I can't figure out why they couldn't turn this source material into a R-rated movie. One must really difference itself from Marvel and DC to to make it in this business. It can work, just look at 'Deadpool' and 'Logan'. Me personally would have used 'Brawl in Cell Block 99' as a source of inspiration - a movie with lot of black humor, violence and gore. In right hands, I believe this mix could have been a success.
'Bloodshot' is not offensively bad, but also does nothing interesting to keep my eyes focused on the screen.
Some directors really know how to create a distinct mood and Luca Guadagnino seems to know how to do that. He has made a movie that feels incredibly authentic and this is is largely due to the brilliant acting by the whole cast.
My god, what a well made Netflix film - Enjoyed every second of it. Based loosely on the works of Shakespeare, 'The King' has both drama and nail-biting action. It stars Timothée Chalamet who really deserved a Oscar nomination for his performance, but the supporting cast where brilliant as-well.
Years ahead of its time when it comes to cinematography and storytelling. A bit too slow-moving for my taste, but great in so many other levels that it didn't bother me too much. The performance by Peter Lorre was really memorable - I must make sure to watch more movies with him.
As a big fan of Freddie Mercury and Queen, this movie let me down in a big way. You couldn't do a more boring movie about a band with the most colorful lead singer of all time. I was hoping for a lot more depth to the characters and a much more raw take on the history. I'm also one of few people who thought that Rami Malek's performance was really annoying.
It's almost breaking my heart when I say this, that it's a pretty forgettable gangster flick by the legendary Martin Scorsese. Fist off, the run-time of the movie feels really long and that's never a good sign. Secondly, the 'de-ageing' gimmick is just too irritating - The technology is just not here jet. Finally, the actors where too old to pull it off. It really feels that this film is made 20 years too late. Watch 'Goodfellas' or 'Casino' instead if you haven't seen them.
'1917' brings something new to the table as far as war movies go. Its gripping story is filmed in a very interesting way that really elevates the viewing experience and the cinematography really deserved the Oscar it got. The score by Thomas Newman is masterful as-well - Already a classic in my book. There are also plenty of epic scenes that stick with you long after the credits roll. With all that said it's not a perfect movie. I wasn't sitting on the edge of my seat the whole way trough, like I thought I would. Maybe a few slow parts too many for my taste, but it was never boring like some people say. It's still one of the best war movies I've ever seen and I've seen a lot of them. Really glad there is still some quality movies coming out of Hollywood these days.
A big thanks to Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley for getting me trough this new trilogy. Not that it felt like a trilogy or a complete story arc. 'The Last Jedi' did just too much damage for anyone to fix it. But hiring the guy who wrote the screenplay for Batman v Superman wasn't helping either.
There are some movies by other companies that have that special Pixar charm, but you can't beat a "real" Pixar movie made by the right people. Ratatouille is not only one of 2007's best films, it's also one of Pixar's best. It is beautiful to look at and has a good message behind it as-well.
A kind of a unnecessary movie, because there is already a brilliant documentary 'Citizenfour' by Laura Poitras which tells the same story, but better. Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives a good performance though.
