The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - 7/10

I enjoyed this film. It had more emotional substance than these comic book movies usually do. Some excellent action scenes as well with CGI. Electro was badass. I prefer James Franco as Green Goblin though. Fun movie...go see it.

I wasn't gonna watch this in theaters regardless. But this movie is split, some love it, and some hate it. Some even comparing it to Batman & Robin...

Didn't blow me away but I felt pretty satisfied with it afterwards. And of course the acting is great.

8/10

I was quite dissapointed with this film. It had the pretensions of a movie trying to be more profound and socially relevant than what the core material is able to support. The political references and allusions took away from the movie to me. it wasn't gritty in the believable way and the social commentary felt tacked on as oppose to organic.

good acting tho

I pretty much agree. It had some good moments and there were good performances, but the film fell short and was pretty disappointing.

A couple other things about it: The movie seems to take place in a state of perpetual night. That's all you ever see, and the office he works in presumably during the day doesn't have any windows from what I can recall. The color palette is comprised of mostly dark tones. Lots of grays.

You know how some movies are always linked to others? No Country and There Will Be Blood, Armageddon and Deep Impact, The Raid and Dredd, etc.? I think that will be the case with The Double and Enemy. Both are about doppelgangers, and both are based off two different books called "The Double."

Two separate books about a guy discovering his doppelganger, both made into movies around the same time. There's an interesting irony/parallel at work there. It's like the movies and books are doppelgangers of each other.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 5/10

i honestly feel the movie is going in way too much direction, leaving the development of all the arc feel kinda lackluster and by the time for the final fight scene versus electro i wasn't exactly feeling it. Maybe that's just me.

Stoker


From the director of the original Oldboy, this is about a girl who just lost her father. Her uncle, whom she and her mother had never met, comes to stay with them a bit to help with things while they're grieving and shit. He's good-looking, cultured, smart, and a bit mysterious, but something with him is...off.

Pretty slow-paced but it builds well, stays unsettling and subtlety bizarre throughout, complimented by the score, and the cinematography is really, really excellent. Some of the best I've seen in a long time.

Pretty open to interpretation too so you can chew on it a bit.

8/10

I saw Jodorowsky's Dune last night. I'd give it an 8.8



The theater was packed with me, my friend who wouldn't have gone unless I brought it up, and one random guy.


As a documentary was pretty flawless. It actually sort of played with the form a bit. Usually with a story like this they show the rise and fall, but this was more of a rise followed by a dispersion of talent. While the movie was never made, the ideas and people Jodorowsky brought into the movie industry changed the game. So it won and became legendary even if it doesn't exist. So many classic shots in films came from his storyboards.

Jodorowsky is a hell of an interesting guy, and there were quite a few laugh out loud moments.

It was a very cool story about a guy who was doing things the world just wasn't ready for. His struggle and luck to get it as far as he did. His passion and genius is palpable.

I recommend it if you're into sci-fi, and art in general.

rep for the lulz, but I thought The Purge was decent. Nothing super-special but I'd give it at least a 5 I think.

There's a sequel coming out later this year that I'm actually looking forward to!
