Basically Luc Besson got halfway through the script and thought "f*** it", in for a penny, in for a pound. And the film just goes nuts.
In a good way. I really enjoyed it. For a film about accessing 100% of the brain it's ironic that, for maximum enjoyment, leave your own at the entrance to the cinema before watching it.
Better than I thought after reading some reviews. The PG13 didn´t bother me much, but the overcrowding was a problem. The young cast was surprisingly good, Mel Gibson shone through understatement, but giving Jet Li not much more than a cameo is unforgivable.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Not half as entertaining as all the reviews say. Actually I found it quite a mess. I couldn´t really connect to any character, except maybe for Yondu, and then I constantly thought how amazing it would be had he played that character in a film without so many colours. There weren´t any iconic elements worth the hype.
Like @Creasy47 this is a decent sequel. I daresay it is better than the original. I found the storylines kinda weak, did not care for Joseph Gordon Levitt's and I found nancy's to be predictable. Not any real ground breaking story telling here.
The meat and bones was the Eva Green/Josh Brolin storyline. It is better developed and was more fun. Most of the film is devoted to this one.
Like the original, the look of the film is most intriguing but lets face it: we've all been there and done that before.
Great new additions in Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas (the best of the three), the younger Expendables were good, great action, especially the ending sequence, and Mel Gibson is a great villain. Add in a cameo role by Robert Davi and all the humor, you've got yourself a great film.
Another classic entry by David Fincher that blew me away. I saw the trailers a few times and that's it. Didn't know much about the plot, knew nothing of any twists (or the ending), and I was just shocked, stunned, and overall incredibly happy with the end result. Go see this movie.
Great movie, and slow movies like this are not my type usually..well mostly because most of the slow movies are hailed as "BEST OF ALL TIME OMG MUST WATCH", so I end up thinking most movies like that to be overrated.
8/10 for Gone Girl. I am tired now but I might write few words if someone wants to know something :)
Also few days ago
The Equalizer- It was fine. 7/10, nothing more nothing less,enjoyed the second half, the first half was alright for what it's worth. Denzel is badass, the character is badass. It works.
Just reading this... Thanks for the link, but for anyone interested in the movie, DO NOT READ THAT ARTICLE BEFORE YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE. Or any articles about it. Eek.
It was pretty good, wasn't it? :)
Just saw it a few hours ago. Liked it a lot, as did the friend I went with. I hadn't read the book (I've heard recommendations) and wasn't familiar with the writer, didn't know anything about the story (thank goodness for that) except how it begins, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are both merely ok - I mean I wouldn't go see a movie for either of them. (Having said that I must say they were both good in this. Actually, Rosamund was very good.)
BUT it was a David Fincher movie, so of course I had to go and see it. He's one of those movie people I have a soft spot for, one of those "he's in? ok, I want to see it, whatever it is" people. I thought it was pretty fantastic. I can easily believe the book is good, and, of course, Fincher sure can tell a story. Apart from the fascinating main story well told there was also plenty of interesting commentary on various things on the side and some good humour throughout.
I believe I had a big grin on my face when leaving the theatre.
Oh and I quite liked the music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. I guess Fincher quite likes them, too... (Damn, do I have to buy another Fincher movie soundtrack by those guys? I hope not, I already have 2.)
Yes, the trailer was good in nor revealing anything. That's rare.
Saw Sin City: A Dame To Kill For about a week ago. That was... ok, but... I mean not bad, but somewhat meh. That I personally wouldn't recommend.
Gone Girl I would recommend.
In fact, it's an unusually rich story, all things considered. It's about so many things, and it's fascinating. I've been "oh wow" about 1 tv series and 2 movies this year, Gone Girl being the second of those movies. I'm still grinning.
I want to see it again. I want to read about it and talk about it. Good thing that doesn't happen all the time - the extra attention and research and analysis and discussion takes a lot of time. :P
Having started reading articles, analysis and comments I'm - as usually happens - amazed. People really do see different movies (and different tv series) even if they watch the same one. I don't mean simple like/dislike, but much more than that.
Which is also something that fascinates me, btw...
'Gone Girl' has so much beauty to it, and yes, it's very rich. Feel free to PM me anytime to speak about the film, because I saw it Friday night and ever since, I've either been talking with my girlfriend about it (or talking about going to see it again on Monday ;)) or thinking about it. I love when a film is so good that it sticks with me like this. I really want to see it once more, especially knowing what I know now.
Fincher is great great director, but for the movie and the minor flaws I have with the movie I mostly credit the writer of the novel.
Finally got around to seeing it. I will watch any Fincher film, especially any of his projects that deal with mysteries/crimes, his work in Se7en, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Zodiac (my favorite) being the stuff of legend, so this was a must watch for me.
With this film, I am very conflicted. It's a crazy ride that takes you up down and all around with the characters, making you always question who you do or do not trust, and as a whole it's a very unconventional and unexpected thriller/mystery in that regard, which is refreshing. Unfortunately, by really going out of its way to tell a different story you don't expect, it loses itself. I was into the atmosphere and totally taken with it for almost the entire duration of the film, then
In addition, Rosamund absolutely blew me away, and I honestly wouldn't be the least bit surprised if she got some Oscar buzz coming off this film. It'd be a well deserved nomination, that much is certain. The Bond girl curse clearly hasn't struck her either. What a knockout...
Not that many people know about this movie which is shame.
A good feel good movie. Simon Pegg is great as usual. Rosamund Pike is real babe. The movie is funny and interesting all around.
7/10, recommendation from me :)
I was lukewarm about it when I left the theater. But it grew on me. I couldn't get the Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross soundtrack out of my head, so I bought it, listened to it, read the interview with Reznor in Rolling Stone. Then saw the film again.
The film is a modern parable, where the subtext is the real text.
I personally loved it, probably the best film I've seen in theaters this year. Really wowed me and the twist was phenomenal, albeit one of the ones I expected.
LOVED IT. One of the best movies of the year for me. You should check it out if you have the chance.
Ben Whishaw is wonderful as Paddington. Look out for the briefest of cameos by Geoffrey Palmer (TND) near the end too.
Fantastic humor, funny and likeable characters, don´t know what else to say.
Gyllenhall was fantastic. The film drew me in constantly, even though there is not one single likeable character.
Unfortunately, it's my least favorite in the 'Hobbit' trilogy, and the films seemed to get worse and worse for me. The final act of the trilogy lacks punch, the emotional scenes are more laughable, and it was chock full of bad CGI and forgettable action sequences.
And don't get me started on the disappointing ending that completely lacked the emotion and breadth of the LOTR trilogy's ending.
