Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Agree. She was really good in this. Heck, they all were. Best DeNiro performance in awhile.

You'll enjoy it if you like depressing films that are borderline pornographic.

The last scene was kind of amusing though.

I've recently watched...

Zero Dark Thirty - Good movie, entertaining. I hated the Hurt Locker and this was much better, but I don't think it deserves best picture.

Silver Linings Playbook - for a guy watching a rom-com, I thought I would hate it but I enjoyed every minute of it. Bradley Cooper is a way better actor than I ever gave him credit for, and DeNiro's still got it. Highly recommended.

Django Unchained - ****ing loved it. My favorite Tarantino movie.

The Hobbit - Huge LOTR fan and I think I enjoyed this movie more than the trilogy. When I first heard it was being made into a trilogy I thought that was retarded but now I can't wait for the next two.

Skyfall - definitely the best of the Craig-era movies which basically means it might be the best Bond movie yet.

Seven Psychopaths - I had no idea what this movie was about going into it and it really wasn't what I was expecting. I still don't know how I feel about it. I'm not sure if I loved it and think it's brilliant or I ****ing hated it. Either way, it's worth a watch.

Lincoln - Daniel Day Lewis is one of my favorite actors but I couldn't make it past 15 minutes into the movie. I'm not saying it's bad, it's probably a great movie...my ADD just kind of prevents me from watching movies like this.

Still need to watch Argo, Cloud Atlas, and Life of Pi

Great flick. I truly enjoyed it for basically being an upscale rom com.

Still not sure 100% how id rank it with other QT movies....his movies tend to get even better the more i see them. Right now id put it behind everything but Death Proof and i truly enjoyed the movie. Thats how much i love QT movies.

Indeed. Definately in the top 3 or 4 Bond movies ever.

It's like you didn't even watch it.

To each his own, but I'm not the only one to have these specific criticisms.

Quote:
Why is it that critics whose job it is to be attentive to the details and underlying messages in movies disagree so sharply on the basic plot—let alone the deeper message—of this movie?

Mostly because Silver Linings Playbook is a mess. That messiness is at least partly by design. The shaky, uncomfortably intimate camerawork; the abrupt plot changes; the constantly shifting tone—all these are no doubt deliberate choices by Russell that contribute to the film’s exuberant feeling. But in addition to that choppy style there is a choppiness in the storytelling when it comes to depicting, and defining the contours of, mental illness. Russell doesn’t seem particularly interested in the question of what distinguishes a person’s mental illness from his or her personality, or the question of whether medication is as effective a treatment for bipolar disorder as a pretty girl and a dance competition. Russell doesn’t highlight whether or not Pat is medicated at any given time in the film’s narrative. Though we hear Pat complain of lithium’s side effects—sluggishness, weight gain—early in the film, we don’t see him actually experience any of these side effects once he starts taking his meds. As David Denby writes in his critical New Yorker review of Silver Linings Playbook, “What’s supposed to be clinically wrong with [Pat] is inseparable from what is merely infantile in him as a character.”

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/...ot_really.html
Quote:
David O. Russell’s sort-of comedy is pretty much a miscalculation from beginning to end. Russell’s hero is a young history teacher, Pat (Bradley Cooper), who is released from a Baltimore hospital after eight months of treatment for bipolar disorder. At home with his parents, he talks non-stop about his wife, who has left him, and in the middle of the night he throws “A Farewell to Arms” through a windowpane and then wakes up Mom (Jacki Weaver) and Dad (Robert De Niro) to complain about the book’s plot. Pat is mainly just silly and infantile—a self-absorbed manic chatterbox. What’s supposed to be clinically wrong with him as a person is inseparable from what is merely tiresome in him as a movie character. Things improve a bit when the tough, direct Jennifer Lawrence shows up as a young neighborhood widow who unaccountably pursues Pat. The film turns into a kind of stuttering romantic comedy, but the rhythms are off. Russell overloads scenes with talk and fights; the movie nags at you. As Pat, Sr., De Niro creates more noise, as a furiously superstitious sports nut who makes wild bets on games and is always in a foul temper.
