Haha, I don't know if I am more concerned that the Foo Fighters selection was Scorsese or Robbie Robertson
This was underwhelming. I'll give the film its art direction, which is a crisp but still surprisingly quaint version of a futuristic LA. However, the relationship I'm supposed to empathize with between Samantha and Theodore is seriously lacking. The dialogue was not very emotionally engaging and I felt little for mopey Theo.
A realistic depiction of a teen girl's "coming of age" and deeply surreal in its more graphic imagery. It's oozing with fluids, from bodily to synthetic, to underline potent but repressed girl sexuality. A memorable scene occurs when Alice is in her mother's hen house and smashes a perfectly good egg tightly in her fist, framed close-up. A slow zoom in on Alice's pretty face; "It was broken," she says. Damn girl.
Ultimate Bechdel test fail; macho to an gag-worthy extreme, really grimey to me (so much bacchanalian fucking and T&A) but hey, all of that misogyny and maxed out male gaze is to build Belfort's gross character, right? RIGHT? It did have funny moments and was slick and totally drugggged up, like Goodfellas' coked out raid scene but the whole movie. Also: WTF was this soundtrack? Foo Fighters? Scorcese, c'mon brah.
having just seen the film... the Foo Fighters song is without a doubt the worst music moment of Scorsese's entire filmography. Forget about the fact that it's anachronistic, I have no problem with that, but the song just doesn't fit. Luckily the song fades out pretty quickly, but still... Scorsese could've used Rolling Stones again, even though they're stale; they HAVE made other songs beside Gimme Shelter! The best musical moment of WOWS is Howlin' Wolf with Smokestack Lightning; perfect use.
Now That's What I Call Coen Brothers! Very into this, particularly Isaac's performance, which was just perfect in every way; his foul-mouthed cynical front is at its best opposite Mulligan's equally sassy performance. "Condom on condom on condom." Small moments were haunting, like the limping cat or the dark road-trip stretch. Small bits like that. And, of course, Goodman as the odd character Turner is hilarious.
Really beautiful. So fantastically '80s with all of those primary colors. Juliette Binoche, although beautiful, was a little grating, I can't really put my finger on it, something about her general character in this. The movie was just fantastic, I loved it, and young Denis Lavant is très cool. That "Modern Love" scene (I see u, Frances Ha) was so so so good.
CORNY AS FUCK. That last scene was so laughably dramatic. Like, Planet of the Apes dramatic. And that's a movie about astronauts I would have rather watched.
D Lynch, that you ?
The first 25 minutes or so were slooow and terribly acted, but once the action starts up it was really fun. Such a fantastic idea and I appreciated a (spoiler!) female lead who kicking ass intelligently in a slasher situation. Sooo refreshing.
Pretty bad but I can't say I didn't start crying during Paul Rudd's dirty talk scene.
I really enjoyed this. A true old-school scare, reminiscent of Amityville Horror. It takes its time too, in terms of building up it's scares, and doesn't just rely on textbook tricks. And, the movie packs in A LOT too: demons, murder, ghosts, a witch narrative, all without feeling disconnected and contrived. Though, the film does have it's campy moments, but I loved it, especially that Anabelle doll ;)
Liked the first two segments but was pretty disappointed in the last two.
I think Whedon did an excellent job at modernizing Shakespeare without stripping it entirely of it's more antiquated humor, which is either played completely by the book in adaptations or revamped entirely in favorable of something more modern. There were all the physical, goofy moments mingled with some more dry choices. Fillion as Dogberry was the funniest part of the movie. So hilarious!
If you're a fan of this Stoner Brat Pack 2.0 you're bound to love it. I don't think I ever stopped laughing, it's so good. I personally appreciated Rogen and Goldberg ragging on Franco's art career sooo hard (those Freaks and Geeks paintings were amazing?) Also: "You've built a house with iPads in the wall but you're still jerking off like a fucking Pilgrim" ha ha ha haaa <3
I like intelligent movies about teenagers that take teens seriously, and they are rare, but this is one of them. John Hughes comparions are coming up because this is actually sincere. This film is sort of being packaged as a romance BUT, it really isn't! It's a coming-of-age story about Teller's character. He commands the film; Woodley's character is just a small part of this movie. Also: THAT sex scene! (Awww)
It's not the movie I think most people were expecting, but I think it's a perfect bookend. The chemistry between Delphy and Hawke is what made this series so captivating and that isn't lost in this movie, it's just in a different tone. It may have been a liiiittle too dark in terms of the severity of their problems, which leads me to believe that nothing will change, but I liked this within the context of the series.
Amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing. "DON'T TREAT ME LIKE YOUR THREE HOUR BRUNCH FRIEND!"
Very cute movie. Beautifully art-directed. If ya don't like "quirky" films you won't like this but I thought it was really funny and great.
Charming movie but what a weirdly abrupt ending? I've never had that experience before of seeing a movie and wanting it to have maybe just a few more minutes of a storyline in the end? It seemed as if there was an ending that was cut off, or something.
This was actually too, stupidly gory for me and I'm someone who loves revolting horror (tree rape and all.) This may as well be another Saw movie. No funny, campy charm. Bad bad bad.
