girlcrush as well <3
why GOD WHY did I enjoy this SO much???
I have a theory that The Smiths' "There Is a Light that Never Goes Out" is about her. Logically, I realize that's impossible but WHATEVER. #girlcrush
I kept waiting for this movie to fail.... And it never did. Splendid. Wonderful. Sublime. (I could keep going but I'm gonna stop.) .... Amazing! Ok. I'm done.... Magnificent!
I'm gonna say...Vertigo.
New idea for Halloween costume: Suzy Bishop.
Had low expections and was beyond pleasantly surprised. So good to see Noomi! Also, is it weird that I still wanna do Fassbender during this?
Underrated, mainly in terms of Fincher's career as a whole. Very Hitchcockian. Clearly Saul Bass-inspired opening credits! And Foster is a BAMF. Love it.
Either a really crappy romance or an absolutely brilliant self-reflexive postmodern comedy. Not sure.
"It's hard not to be romantic about baseball." Hell, it's hard not to be romantic about this movie. Finally managed to watch it again and wow. It's invigorating.
"Listen, I wouldn't stay here for more than 2 minutes and 37 seconds. We're having the walls and ceiling removed... "
Once it got over the whole "OMG let's be like Harold & Maude and aren't we just so adorable 'cause she knows everything about birds and he crashes funerals hardy har har" idea (and I stopped wanting to shoot myself), it ended up being very sweet and funny in parts. A truly lame screenplay but Hopper and Wasikowska had a nice chemistry.
I literally have lost track of how many times I have seen this. And you know what? My eyes are glued to the screen every single time.
I was very apprehensive about seeing this film, I was afraid it was going to be yet another film that would of course be brilliant but just something that I would have to seriously analyze and not enjoy at all. But it was so much fun! There is indeed quite a bit to analyze but Frampton almost gives his viewers a remarkably intriguing game. Loved it.
I loved this even as a kid -- classic comedy!
This reminded me SO MUCH of Jeanne Dielman.... I agree that it did fail in many ways but I like that it tried. And I was interested. Most of the time, anyway.
I've never cried during this film but I'm left absolutely heartbroken for hours after.
I can't stop thinking about this.
I learned so many things from this film, like the fact that diversity is a term for an old, old wooden ship, used during the Civil War era. Who knew!
Initially, I only saw the last half of this movie and I thought, "Yeah, sweet, ok, whatever." Then I decided I SHOULD give it some respect and see it again. And oh boy. Everything about it is, in a word, endearing.
J.J. Abrams' use of lighting is insane. Holy shit.
I would have to say...the most beautiful film I have ever seen. Demands a second viewing. And a third. A fourth, a fifth....It's breathtaking, seeing the world through Malick's eyes. Seeing the passion and hurt of a young boy. Pitt, Chastain, McCracken -- all incredible. Five Stars, hands down.
I'm sorry, I love this kind of crass, rude, (sexist) humor, I really do, I literally cannot help myself. I'm also partial to about half the cast. Give me Kristen Wiig yelling "man balls!" any day and I am so there.
Some really interesting dialogue. But Owen Wilson was the only natural one in it. Reese and Paul seemed very uncomfortable at points and I couldn't tell if it was part of the characters or what. Three stars for its sporadic charming moments.
Wow. Just beautiful. I loved every minute, from the most joyful moments to the most tragic. A gem of a film.
It almost seems silly to write on this movie's wall, but I relish giving it one star so much.
Not to sound like a broken record, but Natalie Portman was insanely, insanely good. She WAS Nina Sayers. I also loved the cinematography. To give a perspective on just how intense the film is, five people have fainted from it in the movie theater I work in.
Definitely not one of his best, but I enjoyed it, especially that last scene the still shows. His use of music and cinematography is impeccable, as usual.
