This is the beginning of a new golden age of Bond movies.
Obviously both are top-tier, but I don't understand why Yojimbo seems to be the universal favorite. I love Yojimbo, but Sanjoro even more so.
I had a great time discussing this movie with my cousin, an actual hacker. The "boss battle," as I've called it, was side-splitting. Overall, a lovable movie.
That trailer screenshot did a really great job of bringing me in.
It looks a little funny having him as one of my two favorite auteurs, alongside Kurosawa. I love it.
Despite the obvious faults, I still really love this movie. The plot was more than a little underdeveloped, and no doubt wholly incomprehensible to those who were newcomers to the Tron storyline, but I still loved it for reasons that are difficult to explain (not daft punk). It's not a worthy companion to the original, but for some reason it really struck a chord with me when I saw it in theaters.
Beowulf reimagined in the most awesome way. Outlander combines two things that nerds like me have always loved - spacemen and vikings. Not a work of art by any means, but it delivers. Great action flick.
I didn't really know what to make of this at first, it's so irreverent and I didn't really "get it." Then, a close friend died. Turns out the problem was that I hadn't really experienced loss - now it's one of my favorites. Absolutely brilliant.
There was a point during Daybreakers that my friend and I, as well as about half of the theater, actually stood up thinking the movie had abruptly ended. That is not a good sign. It ended in earnest a short while later, somehow still managing to avoid resolution. "Oh, they're driving away now. Okay." We left the theater with a laugh, and not in a good way.
I still laugh just thinking about the premise of this movie. That said, it wasn't very watchable.
