Ambitious? Considering The Wrestler is a 2nd rate Raging Bull I don't know if I would go all that far.

the town-
was ****ing awesome, a significantly better film than gone baby gone, the heat comparisons are valid but the film it most resembles in many, many ways imo is point break. some of the sub plots were a bit contrived but that doesnt matter when you have such tense action and beautifully constructed drama.

You're probably right. It's nowhere near the artistic achievement.


It's most similar to this movie:



It's a somewhat similar story and I would think Darren had to have had this film in mind when making The Wrestler. As a character study, I think The Wrestler plays down to mainstream movie goers much more than movies like There Will Be Blood, Taxi Driver and other such films.

I'm seriously doubting The Town is all that. It looks like a knock off of Infernal Affairs/The Departed. The cast isn't all that either.

I would be surprised if he did not do it. It would not be a stretch for him to be a huge Superman fan as he was born right at the point where his childhood would have coincided with Superman's big screen relevancy. You seem to see spandex, and become incapable of not going on a pretentious, platitudinous, fanboyish, snobbish tangent. The premise for The Black Swan could easily have been superimposed upon a Superman film.

How to Train Your Dragon


Follows a familiar formula, but despite that it's still one of the best animated films in recent years.

Scream 2

5/10


I get it... girl lives, people get slashed, its not who you thought it was. Kinda saw this in the first one. That being said, slight points added for being so iconic.

From other thread:



It was very well done. The cinematography was nice, the acting worked, and I couldn't think of it being better for what it was. Sorkin is probably the best "smart people" dialog writer. Having said all that, it isn't some revolutionary "movie of our generation", it's just very good for telling Facebook's story.
