Gone Girl 6/10

I feel like this movie is pretty overrated. I've never read the book but after watching the movie it seems obvious to me that it is a much better fit for a book than film.

It's still above average because it has good twists and turns and it does keep you wondering but I really feel like the ending is a massive let down. And even thought the movie is very long everything feels rushed and crammed.

It is probably overrated IRL and underrated a bit on ISH.

White House Down - 6/10. Almost everything I expected. Cliched and over the top moments, cheesy one-liners, and the predictable betrayal by a person in high position at the end. Jamie Foxx was perhaps one of the worst movie presidents ever.

Groundhogs Day - 9.6/10

This is now one of my favorite movies of all time. I always liked the concept- a man is perpetually trapped in the same day, repeatedly waking up on February 2nd, 1980. However, the execution was even better. It is funny, it is thought provoking, it is dramatic. Many religious groups, including Jews and Buddhists, have praised this movie for its philosophic undertones. It is easy to see why, because there is meaning and depth inside of this movie, and it is meant to tell you something about life. All the while, it stars Bill Murray, who is a very funny person.

Big Fish

Watched it about 4 days ago and I really loved it. It's a Tim Burton but it has more restraint than some of his worse stuff and the experience was a lot of fun. The tall tales of the father and the images of it conjured by Burton would extremely entertaining and had me laughing openly for almost the entire film.

It is also extremely touching at the end where Billy Crudup's character realizes that his father's storytelling wasn't a form of deception but a way to share his life with the people around him (and partially as a justification for his frequent traveling). It was his way to build a little magic into his son's world in an otherwise ordinary life. The son expresses frustration throughout the film because he feels that he doesn't know his father. But at the very end he finally realizes that the storytelling is an essential part of father and revealed the way that he loved his family and friends. It was really just a great resolution to an extremely enjoyable film.

Big Fish is interesting, but I only enjoyed it on the 1st watch.

Birdman which I really liked, especially the way it was shot. Don't particularly care for Emma Stone, but everyone else in the film was great.

Also finally watched Interstellar, which I mostly found pretty boring until near the end.

Foxcatcher

9/10

Tragic story and great performances by the trio of Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, and Mark Ruffallo who are all know mainly for comedic or superhero throwaway movies. Highly recommended.

Yes it would. It's about more than drumming.
