Ocean's Eleven (2001)
A heist gone wrong except basically nothing goes wrong
"Ocean's Eleven" is a fun film that is sure to interest all of those who like heist movies. However, for those who do not, it may be rather boring. While the heist sequence of this film is incredibly well-plotted and very quick-moving, this does not come in until about one hour into the film. Half of the movie is the exposition.
Less of a thriller than a biographical drama
David Fincher is a director that is well-known for his work with thrillers. This is not one of those. Instead, he has created a true crime film that is both engaging and very stylish. That being said, he still manages to sneak in moments of suspense, and does so in a very masterful way. The film also manages to keep pushing you along with the details of the case without overloading you with information. Every single detail of the case mentioned in the film is deliberate and piques your interest. On top of all of this, the cast is excellent and the soundtrack is great.
A 90 minute film that feels like 20 minutes
"Fargo" is a film that is incredibly fun. It makes the most of its simple but very well-constructed story and turns it into one of those films that seems to fly by way too fast. It perfectly blends black comedy and drama, and its quick pace makes it a very re-watchable film.
Phantom Thread (2017)
You know a film is good when you get nostalgia from it three days after you see it
Phantom Thread is a simple, rich film that acts as both a comedy and a quietly devastating drama while also showcasing Daniel Day Lewis' acting prowess, Paul Thomas Anderson's skilled filmmaking, and Johnny Greenwood's beautiful score.
Super 8 (2011)
Filled with wonder
Super 8 is a film that is so incredibly familiar that sometimes it seems to play itself out in your head. Yet there is a quiet sense of sadness in the background that pervades throughout the entire film. The storytelling is this film is incredible, and the acting in this film is more than perfect. The film really sets the stage for all the drama that will soon unfold. All the characters and their relationships are perfectly conveyed. And then the action comes. Suddenly, the film loses all the qualities that made it so absorbing, and instead goes for the standard alien-befriending ending. In the end, the exposition of this film severely overshadows the climax, and that's how I would like to remember it.
The Ghost Writer (2010)
Polanski does it again
The Ghost Writer is an incredibly intelligent and surprisingly dramatic thriller that manages to control your tension with an iron grip. The performances are great, but Polanski's direction makes this film amazing. The main character is faceless while all the other characters are all too real and have their own problems. By the time the writer is killed off in the end, it really makes you think that he is just a ghost.
A Visionary Piece
Inception is such a great sci-fi film, so instead of telling you everything good about this film, I will tell you everything that isn't.
1. Character Development. This is the huge gaping hole in the middle of this film. If you love sci-fi, this should not bother you in the slightest, but if you want a film that excels in storytelling and character development, this film will be hugely disappointing.
2. Pacing. This film has the Christopher Nolan quality of always feeling like it is the climax of the film. Because the entire film is pure action and amazing special effects, there is little room for exposition, and this makes the actual climax of the film less intense than it should be.
3. The Ending. I'm not talking about the shot with the top at the end, but rather how the last five minutes of the film feels incredibly forced. Everything, from Cobb leaving the airport, to him arriving at his house, is inconsistent with the tone of the movie. rather than making the ending clean and realistic, Nolan makes the decision to drag the entire thing out to the point where it feels detached from the story.
The Last of Us: Part II (2020)
The Last of Us Part II is a great game with an improved story and gameplay, as well as graphics that inspire awe. The character development in this game is admittedly worse than the previous installment, but the story takes such huge risks. You will either hold your breath until the end or quit the game halfway through.
The Peanuts Movie (2015)
The Old and the New
The Peanuts movie is such a great movie mainly because it perfectly captures the aesthetic of Charles Schultz's legendary cartoon strip. Everything, from the humor, to the simple, clean animation, to the voice acting, is amazing. In its transition to 3D, peanuts has managed to hold onto all of its old-school aesthetics.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
Irreverent and Thoroughly likeable
If Wes Anderson's style could be summarized in one film, this would be it. It is incredibly dry and clean, yet is still full of heart, wit, and humor. It is so simple, but is a film that will surely entertain adults more than it will children.
Cars 2 (2011)
Stupid, Stupid Action
Cars 2 is like a child's dream. It is full of color, memorable characters, and beautiful scenery.
Knack II makes this game look like crap. The graphics get a 10/10 but the storytelling just does not reach the emotional heights of the much better sequel.
Dunkey Is Trash.
His videos are just stupid and biased.
20/10 Has a little something for everyone
