I haven't seen it, but I've heard it's insanely depressing.
just rewatched the trailer, yea I can definitely see it being depressing.
Big Fan was pretty depressing too. not in a melodramatic way, but just how bleak and misguided the main character's life was
some other films I saw recently are:
The Skin I live in: Spanish horror film. of the spanish movies I seen I feel like I liked all of them and this one was also quite good. story was a bit convoluted and I had to rewatch scenes to actually understand what was happening. 7/10
Avengers: Surprised it broke all those records I have to say. I enjoyed it and I guess it will appeal to a broad spectrum of people so it's a good party film and will have a lot of repeat viewing. but wouldn't have guessed it would be so popular 7.5/10
Never in my years of life, would I have ever thought that a Star Trek film or TV show would entertain me, but this one did it. First scene starts out with action, flashbacks continue the action, and even when characters are being introduced to each other, it's backed up with action.
The main bad guy's character development could have been a bit more fleshed out, but the movie is beautiful to look at, with new faces doing great tributes to the original cast, but with their own spin on it (Zachery Quinto as Spock stole the show for me).
Be warned, if you're a Fan of those "philisophical" type Star Treks, this might not be the movie for you. No long council scenes, or taking the entire episode to decide rather or not to fire a torpedo in this flick, lol.
Detachment. Really good movie, loved the way it was filmed. Adrien Brody gives a pretty good performance. Really depressing movie but it seemed really real for the most part.
Directed by Tony Kaye too. First movie I've seen of his since he went full on douche bag after American History X. Really sucks that all that shit happened because he seems like a pretty talented director just let his ego ruin his career, well unless he turns things around down the road.
2004 movie about a future earth and the lives of cloned humans. 9/10
the island trivia
Some Hollywood actresses are cautious about revealing too much skin but 20-year-old Scarlett Johansson had to be persuaded to keep her underwear on, said her director in The Island, Michael Bay.
Speaking before the New York premiere of the thriller, which stars Johansson and Ewan McGregor as human clones on the run, Bay said he was prepared for the usual actress nerves when it came to shooting a love scene between the two leads.
"We're ready to go and of course the actress is not there," he told reporters. He said he was summoned to Johansson's trailer, expecting to have to reassure the star of Lost in Translation that her privacy and dignity would be protected.
"She's standing there and she says, 'I'm not wearing this cheap ... bra. I'm going naked,' " Bay said.
"I said, 'It's PG-13, you have to wear the bra.' "
Bay describes The Island - which carries a PG-13 rating, meaning it is suitable for children with parental guidance - as a summer "popcorn movie", though the plot raises important ethical issues about science and the morality of cloning.
The film by the director of Armageddon and The Rock is a change of direction for Johansson who has played a string of critically acclaimed roles in films such as Girl With a Pearl Earring and In Good Company
He should have let her go topless and then after a bit, say "hmmm... on second thought, this needs to be PG-13." Gets him a nice little peak and keeps his PG-13 rating. Win-win situation if you ask me.
Are Descendants and Extremely Loud Incredibly Close worth watching? What else do I have to watch that I have to see at least once?
I didn't enjoy this one much. Basically a personality piece about a kid. I went in expecting some sci fi or adventure, but its not that at all. Not to mention i find the kid's personality pretty annoying; he's like a mini-PG version of Daniel Tosh.
I thought it was terrific. Alexander Payne is a master of the understated. All of the performances were so real and believable.
It did have some good performances. Clooney was pretty believable as was the teenage daughter. Cool seing a Matt Lillard sighting in that kinda film too. Just wasn't terrific in my mind. I think I gave it a 7 on IMDB. No idea what I'd give it on ISH as I'm brutal at making up ratings out of thin air such as 7.5\8.5 like I've done before
