Her: 8.8/10

What a brilliant concept. Normally when films deal with the future and AI, it's dystopian- the machines take over and are hell bent on controlling and/or destroying humanity. This was much more personal and uniquely... positive for lack of a better word. It actually reminded me in some ways of Blade Runner. Not so much the hunting down and killing of androids but the questions brought up about humanity, existence, self-awareness, love, etc.

The production design was perfection. They kept the setting recognizable but still different in a way that painted a picture of a not too distant future. The use of vibrant colors (especially red and orange) was a nice touch.

Phoenix was great. Easily the most underrated actor working today.

Yeah I felt the same way. There was no "we're pissed off and now we're gonna take it out on you" kinda stuff. And it felt futuristic yet relatable. Like when he has a slice of pizza.

Great story and quite prob the best fighting scenes I have ever seen in a martial arts movie. Reminds me of Jet Li in his prime.

Captain Phillip

10/10


Perfect movie. Tom Hanks on top of his game. I actually liked this more than Philadelphia.

Speaking of Philadelphia, I also saw his co-star's movie (Flight), and I have to say that movie is pretty f*ckin well made. 9/10

Denzel and Hanks need to star in another movie together again.

Dallas Buyers Club



World-class acting in this movie by Jared Leto and Matthew Mcconaughey. Leto plays an HIV-positive transgender woman and will probably win Best Supporting Actor. Also another 5 nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Screenplay.

Did not like the role of Jennifer Garner and the plot has some holes but a great movie


9/10

American Hustle 8/10- Some plot holes, but overall a good movie

Captain Philips 8/10- Classic Tom Hanks

Watched Prisoners yesterday. Was expecting more to be honest. Halfway through the movie I already knew how the movie is going to end and who the real ''bad'' person is.

7.8 / 10

Yup.

Great flick because it feels more like an american movie than a chinese one: it takes its time with the story and character and when there is an action scene, it goes all out. There's only 3 fighting scenes, but they are some of the best choreographed scenes I have seen.

Here is a snippet:

Really interesting movie about the financial crisis because it is a genuine attempt to look in on the mentality of investment bankers during the beginning of the crisis. It didn't depict them as evil schemers with horns in the back of their head but as humans who ****ed up and got in over their head. Good movie for anyone who might want to get a glimpse at what it really is like for people making decisions at a place like Goldman.

The film didn't really have a dramatic build-up and conclusion to the plot but instead it just had this constant feeling of inevitable disaster. It had more of a reflective emotional experience to it than a dramatic first hand one. Kind of a strange movie but I liked it a lot. I'd give it an 7.5-8ish.
