can't compare different villains with different goals
City Lights may feel like a small film compared to the rest of Charlie Chaplin's silent comedic features, but it still packs a punch like them, too. Some parts of the film didn't turn out the way I expected them to, but I guess that's part of what makes this film so special. Now I REALLY can't wait for Criterion to put out their combo pack.
I'm calling it: SAFETY LAST is the greatest comedy ever! It makes you laugh hard while also making you desperately hope for the success of our hero, who symbolizes us to this day. In addition, the film has greater effect when shown on the big screen to a packed crowd, just like I was in when I saw the film for the first time. (Some live musical accompaniment doesn't hurt either.)
I feel that Hitchcock is slowly becoming one of my favorite directors and it's all thanks, in part, to this doozy. I can't wait to see PSYCHO next month!
Minor Tarantino at best
The ups and downs of modernization are examined in playful fashion by Jacques Tati.
To me, HOLY MOTORS feels like PLAYTIME except it's (mostly) dark and melancholy. What I like about this film is how the boundaries of its logic are limited to that of the imagination? Why does M. Oscar do what he does every day? Why are there others like M. Oscar doing the same thing? What is the purpose behind these events? At this point, I'm currently open to theories.
SIDE BY SIDE is an overwhelming documentary because it goes into great detail on how digital cinema is tightening its grip onto the moviemaking industry as well as the cold truth that film will eventually become obsolete. Hearing the filmmakers and technicians' thoughts on the change doesn't hurt the documentary at all.
Christopher Nolan knows how to end a superhero film franchise on a satisfying note and use the IMAX technology in the most effective way possible. Btw, Bane is better than the Joker IMO because of how much he was able to do.
A fun documentary about a fashion photographer with great editing
Watched Citizen Kane in film class last Thursday; the narrative structure is a puzzle with "Rosebud" being the missing piece, and that's what makes it work.
There may be times when we're able to redeem ourselves, to have our sins put beside us, but in the case of A Clockwork Orange, at what cost is that even possible?
Source Code is a really great sci-fi flick. While the story and characters are all good, the heart of the film lies at the science behind what's happening. It might get confusing at first, but it all makes sense as Source Code progresses.
I felt that I was unable to finish this movie because it lost me. Some things made little to no sense and the flashbacks were so ridiculously long that they strayed from the main story.
As beautiful and harrowing as it is, I feel that Walkabout contains some elements of Stanley Kubrick.
now my favorite David Fincher movie
Ralph Bakshi would be so proud.
An underrated sex satire that never seems to go overboard like SOME movies...
I remember seeing this...I don't remember if it was any good or not.
Very entertaining; Colin Firth prevails
It's now one of my favorite documentaries.
