Animal Kingdom

Crime|Drama

Quote:
Tells the story of seventeen year-old J (Josh) as he navigates his survival amongst an explosive criminal family and the detective who thinks he can save him.

Trailer

Excellent, gritty crime-drama out of Australia. Solid acting, fantastic cinematography, and an awesome atmospheric, moody score. Pretty smart plot too, that doesn't try to hit you over the head with the main points. It resonated with me on an emotional level, though I can't really say in what way, just that it stirred something up.

My only complaint -- and this isn't really a fault of the movie per se -- is those God damn thick ass Australian accents. I seriously couldn't make out what the **** they were saying at times. It didn't happen too often but it was definitely frustrating when it did. I definitely plan to watch it again when the DVD hits, with subtitles on in case I missed anything more than just little things this time.

8.5/10

Devil's Playground

Action|Horror

Quote:
As the world succumbs to a zombie apocalypse, Cole a hardened mercenary, is chasing the one person who can provide a cure. Not only to the plague but to Cole's own incumbent destiny. DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND is a cutting edge British horror film that features zombies portrayed by free runners for a terrifyingly authentic representation of the undead.

Trailer

If you've seen 28 Days Later, you can expect pretty much the same from this. It's still pretty entertaining, though, with solid production values, and zombies that seem fairly adept at parkour. They explain that in a way that's interesting though, being that it was a prototype PED that caused them to turn into zombies in the first place.

Should make for a decent enough flick to watch while handing out candy this Halloween.

5.5/10

It's really not that bad. I expected some shit like you might see in one of those YouTube videos, or at the beginning of Casino Royale, but it was actually pretty restrained. They mainly only jumped over the tops of cars, and rolled when they hit the ground, etc. It wasn't too over-the-top.

Well since this thread is still open, I'm re-posting this here because this movie kicked ass:


The Trotsky: 9/10



http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1295072/

- This movie surprised the hell out of me. It takes a completely absurd concept/character and makes it not only work but also interesting and funny. This is mostly due to Jay Baruchel (one of the most underrated actors around) who completely sells the character with his performances. Then you have some very likable secondary characters such as his family, his classmates and a couple lawyers into whose lives he basically forces his way into. The "Social Justice" themed school dance and the accompanying costumes were hilarious. There is a lot of historical humour here. I also liked some of the thought provoking themes touched upon even though they were handled in an obviously over the top manner. It has a tone very similar to that of Rushmore with maybe a little bit of Ferris Bueller in there too. It's a small Canadian film but it should be out there on the major torrent sites so look for it. One of my favourite movies in this, so far, weak year.

Winter's Bone

Drama|Mystery|Thriller

Quote:
An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact.

Trailer

This is a really, really smart redneck film-noir. That's the best way I can think to describe it. I was expecting something different, but that's my own fault for misreading the synopsis(my brain only seemed to process the "Ozark mountain girl hacks through" part).

If you aren't a patient person, or you don't care for more restrained, subtle film making, you probably won't care for this too much. Otherwise, give it a shot. It feels very authentic and realistic(I spent much of my time growing up in the area where it was shot), features great acting, and a perfect score, which compliments the movie while at the same time serving to impart an uneasy feeling upon you. It's powerful too, though like the rest of the movie, it isn't anything you could call over-the-top, and is more of a slow burn that sneaks up on you.

I can only think of a couple flaws other than it being so methodically paced(and that isn't a flaw per se, just a matter of preference), and they aren't even worth mentioning. One of 2010's best.

8.5/10

Entertaining

I don't think I can ascribe a number rating or anything to this type of movie so I just put that it's entertaining. Good for an hour and a half or so of mindless hilarity. If you like the other Jackass stuff you'll like this, if not, this won't make you a fan...

7/10 (I appreciated it as a film more than I enjoyed it, if that makes sense)

Edit: It was A Single Man. The pic is no longer working for some reason.
