So "Joker" has received a bit of criticism. It's been said that it's pro-violence, that it's misanthropic and that it goes to far. And to that I say go watch "Spider-Man: Far From Home". You want safe, you want comfortable, you want the same thing over and over again go watch Spider-Man beat up a baddie. "Joker" isn't that kind of film; but this isn't subtle movie. It's influence from Scorsese is clear of obvious and it's social commentary is…
Alita: Battle Angel aka a new form of torture. This movie crushed me, it broke my spirit. I'm now a cynical, disillusioned movie goer. I shudder trying to think back at this CGI filled mess. Oh the dialogue!! How can make all this impressive computer generated scenes but build it around a script so flimsy, so inept, so.... well, shit. I need to rethink my life
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"SHE WAS TOO YOUNG TO BE A WIDOW, AND TOO BEAUTIFUL TO BE ALONE. EVERY MAN WANTED TO HAVE HER. ONE BOY RISKED EVERYTHING TO PROTECT HER"
That's the synopsis / tagline of the film Malena and it's all true that is until the last line. "One boy risked everything to protect her" that is total bullshit, he basically just watches as terrible things happen to poor Malena. Oh and he masturbates constantly about it too. That's basically the film... so enjoy!
It's not Interstellar but it's more of a realistic and straightforward tale. None the less, The Martian is a marvel, visually stunning boosted by Damon and co's performances as well as a sharp and a occasionally funny script. There's no aliens, no space battles and no waves that look like mountains, it's a film in truth about problem solving. Watching Damon's character trying to survive on Mars is truly engrossing drama filled with twists and believable science. It's easily one of Ridley Scott's best films in recent years.
