Watching this film is like sitting on a razor's edge for 2 hours. It's a really brutal, raw, and depressing cautionary tale of Cold War with top notch performances.
One of my masters.
Well, Lumet really knows his shit when it comes to directing actors.
Another super cool action flick from Verhoeven, and a pretty neat score from Poledouris.
Incredibly fluid filmmaking, with a great script, really strong performances and lavish cinematography. Loved it.
This could seriously kick some ass.
I thought that the story was really compelling and quite original, knowing how dull and predictable modern American horror movies can be. It's not amazing, but it got me going, and made me jump a few times.
I love the super saturated cinematography by Dan Mindel.
GARY: I need to see some ID. I need to see something. REACHER: How about the inside of an ambulance?
Impressive filmmaking, on every level. It is also a memorable experience for the senses.
Falls on the ground. Fires his gun in the air. Screams "AaaaaarrrrrghHHhhhHHh!!!!!!!"
"Who am I? I'm the motherfucker who found this place, sir."
One of the best TV shows I've seen in ages. It's extremeley well written and fantastically acted. Just a million times better and smarter than the average modern procedural police show.
Although a bit pushy on the Human Misery side, it is still a strong movie enforced by compelling performances and an interesting script.
Not outstanding but pretty enjoyable, and very VERY well photographed by the great John Mathieson.
It's like a really dark-humored, fucked-up version of "Badlands". I love it.
MFBAH = Motherfucking Brutal Anti-Hero.
Easily the most complex of his films, where he prefers "painting" scenes and characters rather than using a more conventional narrative structure. Yes, his almost trademark non-use of a script can put certain persons off (and I can't blame them), it is so remarkably directed and choreographed that you have to surrender to the flow and let your spirit go.
Never seen someone getting the living shit beaten out of him like that.
God, I can't fucking wait for that one. It's going to stir another 'hate it or love it' debate.
Easily one of the most courageous films I've seen in years. Even in a proper sci-fi setting (let's say a space-ship, or a different planet) the concept of immortality always feels a bit shaky, but try to picture it in a 21st century living room, with no SFX and very little music? This is good. Like, really good.
"—What do you do? —Me? I write unproduced plays, I'm pretty good at it!" Some fantastic dialogue, and Cooper & March give an amazing and enjoyable performance as a duo.
A fine Stephen King adaptation with a pretty good direction from Romero. It's like a modern retelling of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, crossed with Frankenstein, and Hitchcock's The Birds. Really enjoyed it.
Wow, Peter, wow wow wow... WTF.... Calm the fuck down on the CGI, will ya?
Cool and enjoyable, but way way way too much fucking CGI for me. I mean, LOTR was more than 10 years ago, and that was already a pain in the eye, but now they went full on and it's still like going from screensaver to screensaver to fucking screensaver. Even actors, who are human beings originally Mr. Jackson look like characters from a video game. So, YES to the story, NO to the VFX.
Not as lavish and kitsch as the usual Hammer costume movies, and a bit silly at some points (Spider?), it still benefits from a spotless direction from Terence Fisher, and a truly badass performance from Christopher Lee (I mean, the moustache & the goatee makes it all work!)
