Dallas buyers club should be in this list. If you haven't yet, you must watch it.
Even the most cynical pop culture critic has to give props to Vanessa Hudgens for her ongoing effort to tackle eclectic acting roles....as a solid student in the fine art of being a serious actress.
.....revolutions seemingly sound fantastic, depending on what one cares to see, minus political blinkers; Richard Elman's classic book on the fall of the Somoza regime in Nicaragua -- "Cocktails at Somoza's" -- chronicles such crumbling hopes as the old boss gives way to the new ones.
It sounds like the budget was so tight that the scenes were cut in one take......with a partially written script.
"Her" brings to the screen every outlook by Kraftwerk on the bold, bright, frightening future frontier as chronicled in "Computer World".
FYI- The maincharacters name is Jordan Belfort, not Jason...
Fan of Leo anyway....
"Cry Freedom" seems to be the lost gem of cinema which powerfully captures the brutal, bitter politics of apartheid and the silencing of activist voices by any means necessary....while covering the bloody tracks through Orwellian verbiage.
There seems to be a trend for movies (which are guaranteed to generate box-office buzz) to clock in around the three-hour mark. Directors may be getting more leverage due to the spiraling cost of tickets -- which is not a bad thing.
This nation is one big hustle. And - if anything - the sprawling movie shows the characters moving in one direction for a big coup.....but you know they will drop a dime on their "teammates" for a bigger slice of the pie. There is no sharing when the bottom line comes to an end of the game within the game.
This should probably say 'bikini kill'
You posted this story earlier and you stilm could not correct Bikini Girl to Bikini Kill???
"This movie became a part of wrapping stuff up," she says. "I felt like I could do anything I wanted because everything was archived. It doesn't belong to me anymore; it belongs to everyone else. Everything that comes on top of all this is just gravy. Hopefully, it's super-delicious gravy that everybody in the universe wants and it's on the top of good mashed potatoes."
A genius with words. #dumbass #prolife #abortionsarenotbirthcontrol
Bikini Girl?????? Really?
And She's pretty!!!!
I think thats a must see movie!!!!
Looks cannot cover up bad acting....
Twilight is full of that....
Jennifer Lawrence is subline....That chick from the twilight thing is too....uhhh....clunky...Yeah Clunky...No natural movement...
Great review from a film critic who understands the value of a movie from the perspective of the audience rather than the typical cynic who is filled with arrogance and indifference. The main objective of a movie is to entertain rather than meet some elitist literary agenda. Kudos for rising about the snob-filled stench of the sub-standard critic world!
I saw it this weekend and this review was spot on. One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time - feel cheated.
