The whole movie is very Hitchcockian(with a dash of David Lynch). From some of the jarring shots to the dramatic score to the protagonist being in a constant state of mindf*ck; feels like something you might have pulled out of a time capsule.

Anyway, I liked it and must now ruminate.

8.3/10
I love the trailer.

Take Shelter - 8/10

5/10 Shitty plot, the only great parts are the ninja fight in the mountains and the nuclear scene. Also, the part where Storm Shadow cuts the bullet in half. The 1st movie was better.

I also liked the 1st one better, which I found surprising because the cast in part 2 is better.

I lieu of recent events I must change my score on Grand Budapest Hotel. It is now degraded to an 8.6.

For those that wonder, I just on a continuum of movies, not just individual enjoyability... i.e. I have to relate them to other movies I've personally seen and put them on a scale.

I saw:



That's a great ass movie.

9.3/10

Great soundtrack, textbook screenwriting, slice of life mixed with satire mixed with sci-fi mixed with comedy mixed with insanity.

Flat out impressive. I can see shades of Python and Blues Brothers, and well as ripples in Edgar Wright films.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: 6.5/10

A little too cheesy, a little too uneven, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Also, in watching this film I realised Paul Giamatti is a terrible actor.

Grand budapest hotel - 8/10 - thoroughly enjoyed this film, good mix of quirkiness with a story that flows which wes anderson sometimes doesn't balance out right. If you liked his other films you would like this.

Someone explain to me why people enjoyed gravity so much? To me it was horrible. Put everyone to sleep. No action. Just so slow and boring. What is it that you loved about it?

Me and my cousin watched it while high and walked out after 30 minutes with a headache. The visuals and the spinning moments are too much at times, it's like watching a video game cutscene for a little too long. The movie was nothing special, no real substance or story. Just pretty special effects and 2 people aimlessly wondering in space.

Personally I thought the visual were pretty awesome (i had seen a making of beforehand) but I totally agree the movie was pretty shitty and predictable. The whole story line of going from one obstacle to the next was quite boring. I was glad it was only a short film and we stopped halfway through to watch some other shows because my girlfriend and I were bored. My brother in law told me he turned it off halfway through and never finished. Not sure where all the hype came from aside from the visuals. Never developed any empathy for the characters because there was no character development either.
