The thing about Jack White, in his recordings he doesn't do anything amazing, or go off, but if you see him live, and he goes for an epic solo-that's when you see his greatness. He might be more of a rockstar than a guitar player, because he has so much on stage charisma and stage presence, but I was really really surprised the first time I saw Jack White live. I didn't think he had it in him to do what he was doing, but the second and third times I saw him confirmed it was no fluke. So much emotion behind the playing, it's beautiful.
His white stripes style was definatly all about the distortion and simplicity, but now on dead weather he is going off classic guitar god style.
Tarantino always puts some flavor in his movies. His writing and soundtrack is what made this film good for me, certainly not the acting. Only Mélanie Laurent and Christoph Waltz were good and believable in their roles other ones were pretty mediocre. Nonetheless a good, typical Tarantino film that many people should enjoy but it doesn't deserve its 8 oscar nominations.
I saw Coraline last night and it was fantastic. It was actually more suspensefull and scary in some parts than stuff that's actually labeled as horror or suspense. I'm not even sure I'd be comfortable letting my five year old nephew watch it. The Button Eyes were creepy as hell.
Probably my second favorite animated flick this year (I think Coraline was 09), and neither was Disney or Pixar. My favorite was Fantastic Mr. Fox, which I definitely have in my top ten for this year, and Coraline is close.
Yea, I loved that.
"I love you to death" 9.5/10
One of my favorite comedy's. I have watched it at least a dozen times and it still cracks me up. Total sleeper.
Finally got around to seeing this gem. Didn't like it as much as The Killer or a couple of the earlier Woo classics, but this was still vintage Woo. So much violence and action, you could say even too much, and filmed with such style that I can't imagine any fan of the genre not liking this. Body count is ridiculous, you could blink and 5 people might have been killed in that time . Basically exactly how you pictured action movies growing up, and better than most of the "great" action flicks from hollywood. goes without saying but a must see if you like Woo or are a fan of police action flicks.
my top 2 or 3 from last year. still need to see hurt locker, coraline and red cliff though, but yes, white ribbon is very good. surprised it didn't make many top 10 of '09 lists on ISH but its only been out for a little more than a month.
7/10. It was a nice premise I guess, I like how there were little surprises throughout the movie and at the end everything connected, but I didn't understand HOW certain things worked. How could he speak to Clementine every time through a memory, and how did their final plan to wake up work?
