The Breakfast Club:
8.5/10

I love these older movies, being born in 90's I haven't seen enough of movies like this. Anyone have any suggestions about really good movies similar to this genre and time period? I also loves Ferris Bueller and plan on watching Stand By Me soon.

I thought it was pretty bad. About a 4/10 for me.

I went last night to check out the new Bob Marley documentary, Marley, from director Kevin Macdonald, who's maybe I just really like his work. He's probably best known for The Last King of Scotland, which won Forest Whitaker an Oscar for his turn as Idi Amin. That was a genuine tour de force performance, but I actually found it a little overrated, which tends to happen with movies that are built around one incredible performance I find. But still a really good flick.
He also did State of Play, which I found to be really underrated. That was just a really taught, well put together political invesgative movie that had a ton of twists and turns, but never felt like I lost track, which a real tip of the cap to a director in a movie like that.
And the other thing that really had me excited about Marley was that he did one of my favorite documentaries ever. Touching the Void. About two mountain climbers trying to ascend some Peruvian peak, only to have one of them break his leg, then he falls down a crack while they try to get him back and he's left behind assumed to be dead, only he's not and he makes it out. It's really a great flick.
So Marley had me piqued for a couple reasons. One, I like Macdonald's work apparently. Two, he had a history of high end documentary work with Void. Three, with The Last King of Scottland, he showed he could do, or was at least interested in, heavy character studies, which Marley would need. And then finally, it's about Bob Marley, who is awesome.
I by no means should be considered a reggae-phile. But I'm also not someone who owns Legend just so I can listen to No Woman No Cry. I've purchased Marley's box set twice because my first copy got worn out. And I listen to a fair amount of Peter Tosh too. I've read a bunch of stuff about Marley, so I wasn't going in expecting to learn a whole lot, unlike the people sitting next to me who were shocked to find out he was half white (I mean why did you even come to this if you knew that little going in). But there were some revealing moments. There was a bit where they were talking to some relatives about how Stone that the Builder Refused was written about his father, who they also knew, which was really touching, and that was something I didn't know.
The footage was mostly stock, so it wasn't as visually arresting as Void was, but it was still great to look at, and since Tuff Gong produced it, they had the full catalogue of music to work with, and it sounded great. It definitely got a little dusty in the theatre and maybe or maybe not my allergies started acting up when they went into those last few months when the cancer got really bad (I've really ****ing had it with the cancer by the way). He was just such an incredibly emotionally powerfull dude. If you have any interest in Marley at all I'd strongly suggest checking it out. It's well worth the 11 bucks and 2 and a half hour investment.

A Dangerous Method 7/10
Simultaneously interesting and boring. That is considering the fact that I love Cronenberg, Fassbender, psychology, and to an extend, Viggo Mortensen(sp?). Knightley sucked though. Her Russian accent went in and out.

High Noon 7.5/10
Not much to say. Classic western that has a great build up and intriguing characters.
