    It’s ok movie with an even ok-er ending.

    Once again I decided to watch a movie at midnight that I found when googling “mind bending movies”. It definitely didn’t disappoint, but could they have at least gotten a better camera?

  • Donnie Darko

    “Everybody dies alone.”

    Donnie Darko (2001) is my favorite movie. 

    While I am one who’s perception of a movie can change in an instant by the ending (which I’ll talk about later), this movie is so much more than that.

    The opening scene alone is beautiful, showing the mountains of West Virginia. The minimalist soundtrack has a somber piano playing, as we see our titular character lies in the road. As he looks out, the piano changes, with the perfect…

    ★★★★½

    Wasn’t on board 100% of the time, but it gets better as it goes on. Watched it on 1.5x speed. The friend who recommended me this told me the ending is amazing, so I put it back to normal, and turned my volume up, since the audio was hard to hear. You can guess my surprise in that last scene....

    ★★

    I would give this four stars, but those last 15 minutes is one of the WORST endings ever.

    One of the many movies I had to watch in Health class. Forgettable.

    My first Hitchcock! I absolutely loved it. The actor for Guy was a bit flat, but it was amazing! That carousel scene at the end was fantastic. Here’s to more, Sir Hitchcock!

    First Bond movie. Here’s to many more.

  • The NeverEnding Story

    The NeverEnding Story

    ★★½

    Watched it when I was younger. Then I decided to rewatch it but could only make it though 15 minutes before I stopped watching. Just watched the incomprehensible last scene (Call my name! MOONCHIIILLLLLLDDDDD), and realized how utterly weird this movie is.

  • The Prestige

    The Prestige

    ★★★★½

    You’re not looking for the trick, because you want to be fooled.

    This movie amazed me the second time on how simple it is, and yet it’s harsh look on life. The commentary that Caldwell gives at the end is so depressing.

    That last shot though. That still sends shivers.
