Raging Bull

Very well acted, but the story meandered a bit too much for me.

7/10

it did drag a little, but that seemed intended. Scorsese did a great gob.

You sir, are insane. Easily one of the greatest movies of all time. This was the pinnacle of surely the greatest director and the greatest actor of all time.

I might be insane, but Raging Bull is definitely not the pinnacle of either Scorcese's or De Niro's careers. And it's not like I said the movie was bad...I thought it was quite good; the plot just meandered a lot imo.




Philosophy of a Knife

I'm only about 3 hours in, but it's already lived up to its reputation as the most violent movie ever made (or at least that I've ever seen). I don't really know if I want to finish it...

6/10 so far though.

Dead Man Walking


Crime/Drama

Very powerful film. If you're somewhat of a softie like I am, you might want to have a tissue or two handy. It definitely caused me to tear up a couple times. I have to give the filmmakers(Tim Robbins!) credit, because this tackles a pretty polarizing, controversial subject in a very neutral manner. There is no agenda here, nor are there any easy answers. Sean Penn gives an amazing performance as the prideful, yet disillusioned man who's staring down a fate more intimidating than most of us can imagine, and Surandon is also really good.

It also didn't feel overly dramatic just for the sake of tugging at your heart strings, and not that it would need to be given the subject matter. The photography and score were both good, but complementary. It's pretty slow. but what would you expect? It was still paced very well, I thought.

8.2/10

I felt the same way as you did. A 7? Technically speaking, that film may be as close to a ten without actually being one. As a director Martin has always been well ahead of his time.

Interesting. I guess I missed something. Maybe I'll check it out again sometime in the future. Plus, I think everybody rates movies differently; I've seen people on this thread give movies that they didn't like a 7, but a lot of the time I give movies that I like a 6.



American Beauty

Bizarre but hilarious. Well acted, well shot, well written. Great movie.

9/10

The Godfather II- 9.5/10. This was also another great. Al Pacino was great and I loved the part that De Niro played. It was very interesting and I loved how they explained Vitos rise to power.

The Godfather III- 8.5/10. It was a good movie but too much was going on at once. It was a little hard to follow. I thought Vinny was interesting character but the whole banging his cousin thing hurt his character a little bit. He also kind of changed a little to suddenly for me to believe he was legit. At the end of the day it was a good movie but it didnt live up to the other 2.

All 3 in one weekend? I don't think I could handle that. I have to mentally prepare myself just to sit down and watch The Godfather.

Timecrimes


Quote:
A man accidentally gets into a time machine and travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.

Wild movie. The paradoxes here are about as dense and complex as any time-travel movie I've ever seen. Though, it all makes sense, relatively speaking. The movie doesn't broach the science behind time-travel, nor does it try to explain exactly how it happened, rather, it focuses on the problems caused by it and the consequences.

The only issues I had were that the production values left something to be desired, and at times the movie was just silly(the pink bandages for instance). Otherwise I was highly entertained and it really got me thinking, and I'll definitely watch it again sometime.

7.8/10

I love that movie. I feel pretty much the same way about the production and such, but I think it can be disregarded/understood considering it's the director's first movie. Can't wait to see what he has to offer in the future. Have you seen his short film 7:35 a.m., which got him an oscar nomination?
