Crop And Save
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
Good, but forgettable.
This film, to me, had almost no message and was very forgettable. The acting in this film was acting and the cinematography was, in fact, cinematography and believe it or not, but the music, was actually music. This film had me entertained throughout but I feel as though it was made so that we could see Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz kiss and for that reason only.
Fight Club (1999)
I haven't seen a film quite like this for a while. The acting is great and the writing is tight but I found the big twist to be downright stupid. It really halted the progression of the movie and everything changed after that to the point where by the end I had tonal Whiplash. It's definitely worth the watch and I do understand why so many people enjoy it.
Great Action Thriller
This film has some fantastic action and great acting brought together through solid direction and a good screenplay. This film definitely runs slightly long, and the original objective of the film seems obtained around 2hrs in(in the bank heist scene) when you find out there's almost an hour left and the detectives are now trying to catch them and the film shifts its plot to focus more on Al Pacino and his crew. Overall if you like good acting and action this will be right up your alley if you can put up with the near 3 hour run time.
Chung Hing sam lam (1994)
Lost on me...
This film is objectively brilliant. I loved some parts like the music used throughout and the motif of California Dreamin', but the entire meaning felt lost to me. I didn't feel involved when watching. I'll try it again when I'm older and hopefully I'll understand it more.
This film is FUNNY
Booksmart is a clever highschool comedy from 2019. It's a very original concept however, as it looks at high schoolers partying from people that aren't popular, but want to be. It's got some great jokes and a really important meaning about friendship. Even though some of the jokes fall flat for me, it's a fantastic comedy.
This film is crazy. Like in the way where you're sometimes just sitting there in awe of what's on your screen. This film starts off slow and ominous, but by the end it its crazy! It's not everyone's thing but if you like folk horror films this is right up your alley
Tengoku to jigoku (1963)
High and Low is a 1963 thriller starring Toshiro Mifune and directed by the legendary Akira Kurosawa. Its probably Kurosawas most accessible film, as its subject matter would appeal to a lot of people. The dialogue is fast paced and fantastic and the pacing is superb. This film had a phenomenal first act, however in the second I started to feel distant to the characters, which was very different to the first act. The final act and scenes were very chilling and that final shot is just amazing. I think a lot of people would really enjoy this film and I would recommend it to anyone.
Before Sunset (2004)
This film is great, even though its my least favourite of the before Trilogy (which says a lot about the other 2 films) it's still fantastic. It's poetic beyond anything I've seen before, and it feels much more like reality compared to Before Sunrise. Overall despite it being my least favourite of the Trilogy it's still certainly got its strong points and is generally a great film.
Before Midnight (2013)
A Great Ending to the Trilogy.
This final section of the love story between Celine and Jesse is Linklater's most nihilistic. Its practically a horror film compared to the last 2 films in the series, with the stakes being higher than the last 2 films and these two are falling out of love, slowly but surely. Its a depressing film with a terrifying ending when you put yourself in Celines position, being manipulated into coming back every time. However it's a great ending to the Trilogy.
I can't get into this film!
This film is a classic. That's undeniable. But I just can't get into it! Maybe it was the extended flashback sequences, but I was a bit bored watching this one! You might like it though so don't skip it.
The Social Network (2010)
One of the best films of the decade.
The Social Network is a David Fincher directed Biopic on the unbelievably arrogant and intelligent Mark Zuckerberg, but is is a story of betrayal more than anything else. The screenwriting is tight and clever, and the performances are fantastic (mainly from Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield) and the direction is flawless. This is very nearly a perfect 10 and will appeal to lost.
This film is the definition of pretty good in my eyes. The acting is fantastic from everyone involved, the plot is intriguing, but when I watched it I felt an overload in the tone and themes it was trying to convey, and in the end I didn't know how to feel. Overall this could definitely be your thing and you should check it out!
This film is absolutely mind numbingly fantastic. the way this film can take you on a complete rollercoaster of emotions and change the way you feel in a matter of moments is unlike anything I had ever seen before. the ending, for lack of a better word, is unnerving. without any spoilers, it completely changes the way you felt about the film a couple minutes before. the acting is superb, especially from mads Mikkelsen and Klara, who puts out one of the best young performances since Natalie Portman in Leon, although Klara is a much deeper and harder to play character. Overall this is a must-see for literally anyone.
Just SO Good!
This film is such a blast to watch with its fantastic acting and funny but meaningful dialogue. The relationship between Mathilde and Leon is a bit dodgy but it differs on what cut you watch (I have only seen the longer directors cut). The Ending is fantastic if a bit unlikely but if you go into this expecting to enjoy yourself and not take it too seriously it will be great - of course this film is no comedy but the story itself is an unlikely one so if yoiu can see past that you'll have a great time.
A brilliant mix of genres
This film is certainly not for everybody. If you expect a fast paced film that will turn your brain off, then this is not your film. If you manage to make it past the first hour (which is a bit too slow for its own good) and get to the complete tonal twist then everything seems worth it, right until that amazing final scene. This film may have you confused, a little bored(in the first hour) , stunned, and questioning everything you've just seen. If you are patient enough this is a fantastic watch.
One of the best
I went into this film expecting to be bored. I don't know why, but I did. I could not have had poorer judgement. This film is fast paced, funny, and most of all, one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. With rolling hills and beautiful landscapes, I was so impressed with the cinematography. The Ending is amazing - I wont spoil it but it was so well done. What a film.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
The most fun and entertaining experience
This film isn't for everyone. It's over the top in so many ways and graphic as hell. But wow is it just plain FUN. This film has some of the funniest dialogue particularly from Jonah Hill. The performances are excellent too. One of the last scenes where the FBI arrest all of Jordans workers backed by a cover of 'Mrs Robinson' is one of the best scenes in cinema. This film is one of the most entertaining I've ever watched and 3 hours flies by.
The Rookie (2018)
In Love With This Show!
I was scrolling through Nowtv looking for some casual viewing since I finished breaking bad (I know, I'm late to that one) but Wow this show had me hooked from the start! Finished 2 seasons in a week and ready to start it again. Its good because it follows uniformed officers, so you see all calls, not just homicides like on detective shows. Can't wait for season 3!
Breaking Bad (2008)
Breaking bad is the best TV show ever created. EVER. However, this show wouldn't have achieved the same praise and acclaim that it has if it wasn't for 2 words: Bryan Cranston. The acting brought by him is a masterclass in emotion, facial expressions, range, and much more.
Everyone in this cast gave it their all and that is shown throughout the 5 seasons. Not one single performance from the main or the secondary characters is badly done.
The writing on this show is also second to none. The way that it methodically and carefully plots the story is impeccable. The camerawork is beautiful. The performances are world class. The writing is top notch. It doesn't get any better than Breaking Bad
Modern Family (2009)
The best comedy of the decade.
Seasons 1-6/7 of this show were a masterclass in comedy. Such well written characters that were not only loveable but hilarious. Sure, the later seasons weren't loving up to the same incredibly high standards that the first had set, but even at its worst points it was still a charming show. At the final episode you cannot help but feel emotional as it's the end of a legacy. This show will always be special.
The Wrong Missy (2020)
Don't read the bad reviews, those people obviously expected this film to wow them with Oscar-worthy acting and cinematography. If you go into this knowing you will not get either of those (the acting is not bad, just not amazing) you will laugh out loud!
The Kill Count (2017)
James puts so much effort into each and every kill count and that comes across in all of his content. The videos are funny despite the gory topic and they are so interesting as he takes you through the plot of the movie across 20-30 minutes. It's amazing!
Andrey Rublev (1966)
Cinematography hides the boring!
Firstly, this film is shot tremendously well, but there is so much captured in every shot that it takes away from the dialogue and the acting. Also this film is too long for me, I wish the film had taken a little less time capturing the landscape and more time getting on with the story. I found it becoming more tedious to watch as I passed the 2h30 minute mark and by the end I was glad it was over.
