LA Confidential


"Neo-noir" crime/drama/mystery set in the seedier side of glamorous Hollywood in the 50s. Focuses on two cops mainly; one who's a straight-laced, by-the-book kinda guy and another who's on the volatile side of things and is more about the means than the end.

Nichols has a mutually fond relationship with Shannon obviously. Take Shelter I didn't see, but was apparently a huge Shannon role. And more of an indicator is when he cast Shannon, and Shannon took the small role, of the older cousin of the second boy in Mudd. He was interesing in the few short scenes he had, as Shannon usually is. But it's not a role you'd expect him to take as his profile has expanded, unless the two have a really good relationship.

The scene where he indirectly warns the boy about Mud might have been my favorite scene of the film.

I saw Amazing Spider Man 2. Thought it was really good. Perfect balance of fun comic book elements without getting into overly goofy territory like parts of Raimi's.

Garfield and Stone were very good in their roles and better than the first in that regard, i grew to really care bout their relationship which is rare these days considering all the shoe horned love interests om comic movies. Much of the movie is about them but it works very well. My only real complaint is not enough Electro, trailers kinda show all his major parts. Overall though, it is the best Spider-Man movie IMO despite Doc Ock still being the best villain.

The spidey swinging is badass too.

8.3/10

I have a feeling I won't be a big fan of the new Spiderman. Looks like the most CGI of any comic movie ever. Not even just CGI backgrounds, but entire fights look like cartoons in the commercials.

The Double

Trailer

What a f*cking weird movie.

Anyway, Jessie Eisenberg's character meets a new co-worker, who just so happens to look identical to him. Doppelganger stuff. And unlike him, this guy's outgoing, confident, good with the ladies, everyone likes him, etc. One's an introvert, the other's an extrovert. But they're the only two people who notice. For some reason. You'd think that would be something that might come up in conversation in the breakroom.

"Hey, that new guy looks f*cking exactly like you. Twins, related? Are your d*cks the same size and everything? It's f*cking weird. What's the scoop?" But nope.

The movie seems to take place in an alternate reality or something, with a sort of retro sci-fi thing going on. Feels like a David Lynch movie with all the weird segways and one scene in particular which was just...what? The f*ck? The other doppelganger movie I saw recently(Enemy) makes perfect sense compared to this. It is actually pretty funny at times though.

Shot well(in a jarring sense) with a good soundtrack. Eisenberg's pretty good considering he's playing two different characters.

RoboCop 7/10

Better than expected I must say, turned out to be a legit movie.
Would be better if it was rated R tho...

It was a good flick. A good one watcher. Don't see much repeat value.

Fantastic Mr. Fox - 9/10

Been meaning to watch this one for a while. I'm so glad I did. It is absolutely delightful, might be my favorite Wes Anderson film.

Out of the Furnace


How is this not more popular? What a cast. I'd heard about it a while ago, the underwhelming response/reviews caused me to steer clear of though. But I'm glad I gave it a shot because it's a good movie. Maybe a little slow for some people but it never left me feeling impatient and wishing it would move faster or anything.

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

8/10

I read about this a few weeks ago and found it fascinating. Thank's for the review. I'd really like to see it. It sounds like a Black Mirror episode.
