In almost every comedic movie I've ever seen, no matter how funny the overall film is, there's going to be moments of drama. It seems all comedic writers need to channel their inner Billy Shakespeare. What I adore about Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some is the closest we get to drama is the comment made by Jake, the character most of the movie is seen through, about Super Baseball Scout Pete Ward, not being real. The tension lasts for seconds,…
Sometimes we romanticize the wrong people. Killers, thieves, bandits etc etc. QT, never known for passing History class, does something so right, I can’t stop smiling. Instead of painting some sympathetic picture of the Manson Family, he picks Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate as his rightful muse. The passion in her presence is contagious. She doesn’t have a lot of lines, but this is her movie. Without her character, none of this would be possible.
Brad and Leo are real movie…
Werewolves Within is hilarious at times. You cannot help but get an Edgar Wright vibe while watching.
Werewolves are the new vampires. We keep seeing werewolf movies pop up, and Werewolves Within would make a great double feature with The Wolf of Snow Hollow.
I had no idea Werewolves Within was based on a video game. So, I cannot tell you how the movie resembles the game. I can tell you I had an enjoyable time watching, and I think you might enjoy watching it too.
Stalker has a ‘90s throwback thriller feel even with all the cell phone usage.
Color me surprised with Stalker. Its limitations are with its budget, but the story is memorable and very creepy. The feeling of uneasiness never goes away as you watch.
I think Stalker will surprise a lot of people. There is not a lot of buzz surrounding it, but I think if you watch, you will probably not regret it.
Damien Chezelle's tale of a boy, his drums, and a teacher that speaks ever so loudly, and carries the biggest stick of badass this side of the Academy Awards, in one of the most heart pounding cardiac arrest breathtaking intense movies I've ever seen. The opening beat. The opening shot. The first time J.K. Simmons speaks. Groovy funky jazzy music makes all movies better. RIFIFI is the shit. Carter Burke? I knew Miles Teller was going to be special after…
Hell or High Water might be the most adult film I've seen this decade. No gimmicks. No juvenile tendencies. No bull. No cheap shots. It's a Deep Fried Wild West Western Texas Noir, filmed in New Mexico, but it's Texas to the bone.
Jeff Bridges is the cop. Chris Pine is the robber. However, they're both duel-protagonists. The outlaw in me wanted Mr Pine to win the duel. While my conscience cheered on Mr Bridges. Both, have polar opposite partners.…
