Mood Indigo - 7/10

What an odd, depressing thing this was. A full dose of Gondry self indulgence here. It was interesting to look at but felt jumbled and a little too bizarre.

Did you see the longer French cut or the American cut?
I saw the french extended cut.

I saw Science a long time ago and can't remember it much, I do remember that I really didn't understand Science at all, and I definitely understood Mood Indigo. the last half of Mood is just really bleak and miserable. If you like Gondry then definitely check it out, he goes all out in this one with his weird style. But it just made me feel really sad.

I'm going to have to re-watch SOS now.

This Is Where I Leave You (2014): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1371150/

6.5/10

Worth watching if you like a good 'dramedy'.

Fury.

I'd give it a solid 8.5-9.

The acting was very, very good. Believable dialogue (my buddy and I are both prior service veterans and we hate it when the military members in the movie don't speak like they are in the military), a few very solid action scenes and great visuals.

Would definitely buy it on blu-ray.

Then it became a free-for-all of senseless violence and flat humor.

And btw, the film you'd go on to review, The Amazing Spider-Man 2...I would also give a 7/10.

I'm not 'one of those film people'. I just like watching a good movie. American Psycho wasn't one of them.
Are you aware that he didn't actually kill anyone? Ihave a friend who wasn't and thought that the sensless violence at the end really happend and the movie wasn't realistic because of it.

Yeah, all of the tank interactions were pretty awesome.

I lost my shit when one of the tank rounds hit the guy at the top of the tank and just cleaved his head and part of his neck right off of his body.

I really hope Brad Pitt continues to put out a solid, bloody WW2 movie every other year for awhile. Inglorious Basterds was fantastic and Fury was great, so maybe he could focus on a sniper movie a la Enemy at the Gate or focus on one of the resistance units in Europe.

No, I know he doesn't (he's just a nut). But that's one of the main problems. The entire film is morally problematic and the director tries to cleanse the acts (imaginary as they may be) by saying they didn't happen.

They DID happen. I watched them on screen. What if "A Serbian Film" ended with the main character waking up from a bad dream. Would it have made any difference? What about when Spielberg tries to redeem Schindler by giving him the 'I could have saved more' speech? Does that mean we should forget he stood witness as thousands of other died?

It is my opinion that Bateman did kill people. I don't know how the book chose to handle it but in the movie, he def killed people

I honestly don't know anything about the book. I know a few people who have read it and they compared the adaptation to the way Kubrick adapted 'A Clockwork Orange', so quite different (not in terms of plot, mainly in terms of ideas).

Btw, a 4/10 isn't really that harsh of a rating for me. I'd give less than 10 films I've seen a 10/10, and maybe another 30 or so a 9/10. The film was definitely interesting to watch, but I started disliking it more and more as I thought about it.

Isn't a 5/10 or 2.5/5 considered average?
