whiplash - 3/5

it was okay. overrated. fairly understated visually, and considering i never connected with the main character because i thought the actor sucked, i never really got immersed. j.k. simmons did a pretty badass job, though.

The Homesman.... I love westerns and thought I might like this, but it left me feeling pretty sad.

Felt the same way. This had amazing potential and I expected more from Luc Besson.

I was OK with the ending. It was told from the perspective of the newbie on the tank crew. And in that sense it hits on a lot of personal narratives I've read from WW2. Like panic during battle, the shocking horror of actual war vs what they were trained for, etc. etc. If they'd made the movie without the new kid it wouldn't have been much of a story, because there would have been nothing to contrast the brutality of the American soldiers. Plus, the kid's fate seemed obvious to me from the beginning, but that didn't bother me. It felt like it had to end that way.

In some ways the film reminded me of The Thin Red Line. Which also showed a very gritty, violent WW2 story but in the Pacific, which was arguably much more bloody than the European front.

I checked out the Kingsman the other day, it was really a lot of fun. Very British and nice to see a big budget R rated action spy flick for once. Samuel Jacksons Lisp was a tad much though.

8/10

by ending i didn't mean the outcome, i meant the entire final battle. although, apparently it was rooted in at the very least someone's account of something similar that happened in world war 2. but why would the sniper let 200 of his buddies get killed before taking the easy, clear shot that he would have had all along?

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Very silly, fun movie. Stylish action, some genuine LOL moments, and it was entertaining to see someone like Colin Firth kick ass. Yes, it was over the top, but almost never in a detrimental way. Will see again.

B+

Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy. I thouht it was excellent. A bit hard to follow; I'll have to watch it again to catch everythin. If you love Cold War spy stuff, it's top notch. Huge names in it too. I've never seen Gary Oldman underplay a role so much but wow, was he good. Solid A all-around.

He doesn't underplay, he just plays. He just got everyone used to scenery chewing. He was always a good actor, i just think he was probably on coke for a long while. Like the whole 90's

He's a fucking statue most of the movie. I think it's underplayed.

I guess but i've read some of the Smiley books by Le Carre and its kinda how hes supposed to be. That's probably why it didn't strike me.

That movie danced around the edge of greatness but decided to play it safe. At least The 5th Element was half a great movie.

The Guest - 4/5

This film is really damn cool, close to being awesome. I thought the whole third act felt rushed and unsatisfying. But i'd recommend watching it. Lots of great moments.
I'd also recommend "You're Next" by the same director, Adam Wingard.

so I watched Spring Breakers, a movie by Harmony Korine. first time seeing his stuff.
man it really is a mixed bag! the cinematography is great, the color palette gives the entire movie a bubblegum pop summer hit feel. James Franco puts up a pretty great performance as a complete lowlife douchebag small time gangster.

the downsides of it are, it most definitely objectifies women to the point of it not being there for the exploration, but for the exploitation and indulgence of the director.
also the plot is just not strong enough, and even though it tries to be very sophisticated and stylish, it often falls short (though there are some truly brilliant moments on it). at some point he incorporates Everytime by Britney Spears, just the most brilliant choice, it fits with the tone of the movie so profoundly, but it kind of goes to waste because he doesn't know how to hold it down and pace it correctly.

reading a little about Harmony Korine, i gather that what he mainly cares about is conveying a mood and things that are 'outside' the story arc. he says if you're left with an image from the movie stuck in your head, then it's a success.
I guess he totally hit the mark considering where he's coming from, but I think it's an occasionally brilliant, somewhat underbaked film. I will keep an eye out for his next films though
