30 Minutes or Less- 6.5/10 too short, wasn't as funny as i thought it was gonna be. Aziz Ansari is going to be great.

Maybe in the future.

I know and respect that the movie is well made, but sometimes even the best movies fail to grab the viewer. This was one of them I guess.
I felt the EXACT same way until I saw it a second time, at which point I was promptly blown the f*ck away by it. There Will be Blood that is. Weird how that happens.

great acting. About the Red Army militant group of Germany. It goes into their bombing, robberies, and rioting strategies.I just felt like the ending was a little rushed, but overall good screen writing.

I watched that about 6 months ago. I thought it was really good, yet I hardly remember anything about it.

all good things



7/10

spoilers somewhere in here....

potential there but just never realized

not fleshed out enough
not enough background info
good acting which saves it
always seemed to go from point A to E and so forth

good premise, could have been a higher rating with more storytelling and better writing

how dumb could that private investigator/reporter be? calling david after totally being a fraud and trying to screw him over?

just enough character development and in a crime drama, that's sort of essential

his paranoia was only revisted in the last couple scenes after being played up in the first half

deborah trying to protect rizzo? that and it exaggerated certain points like the pulling of the hair. sorry, if i had a sister and she was pulled by the hair in front of me...expect a confrontation

anyway, good performance from gosling in case you didn't think he was an up and coming actor and also a good performance from dunst. decent idea, misguided execution

There will be Blood is not set in the 40's through 70's. It's set around 1900.

If I was thinking period movies for this time frame, I would think of a trio of detective movies

Chinatown
Devil in a Blue Dress
L.A. Confidential.

A great and entertaining movie that set in the contemporary New York of the 1970's in The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3. A great movie.....not the remake. The remake didn't make any sense at all because the whole point was that it was set in a pretty much bankrupt city.


No Country for Old Men was one of the best movie experiences, I ever had. I'm a big fan of the Coen Brothers and Cormac McCarthy and I had heard rave reviews about it for a while, so I was primed for it. Saw it in a theater on the big screen and within 5-10 minutes, any doubt or skepticism that you normally bring to a movie was just wiped away and I was ready to go any place that movie took me. Right about when they show the beginning of the hunting scenes..I really felt like I was somewhere out in West Texas.

I bought the blu ray of that several months before I bought a big TV and that was the first blu ray I watched. The first 5/6th of that movie is genius.

If you liked Baader-Meinhof, Carlos is a great, great film about Carlos the Jackal.

that's a movie? I thought it was a mini series, that is why I was reluctant to download it.

It is. I have the Criterion BD of it. It's a very nice package.

Hangover 2

Funny but not as good as first. Had an average feel most of the time.

It did play in theaters in the US, but it originated as a miniseries. That was mainly due to the amount of material they had to cover. It's 5.5 hours. It basically works as a film though and was directed by one of France's top directors. It was shown at the Cannes Film Festival, and most people thought it would have won the top prizes, but it wasn't in competition because it originated on TV.

They actually released several cuts of the movie, but go for the mini-series length, it's worth it.

A DANGEROUS METHOD, is playing now in NYC. Probably playing in LA too to get considered for the Oscars.
