Coherence - 8/10

I'm always up for a good reality warping movie so I was into this. It did a good job creating the paranoid atmosphere it was going for. The film makers here really made the low budget work by having a very interesting central idea and giving me enough about the characters to care what happens. There is a great sequence in the end as the main character goes from house to house that becomes disturbing once you realize what she is looking for. I got major Time Crimes and Primer vibes from Coherence. Just with alternate realities instead of time travel.


Edge of Tomorrow - 8/10

Predictable but very enjoyable nonetheless. I was a huge fan of Source Code so it immediately reminded of that on a bigger scale (but less emotionally involving). It had some surprisingly funny moments as well. There was one frustrating moment of "why the hell didn't they just do that?" which needed to happen to get the movie to its final act, but still, it went against everything we learned about Emily Blunt's character up to that point. Still, I loved the "save point" concept and the conversations Cage has with people every time he goes back knowing a bit more.

From Dusk Till Dawn

8.5/10

The asian kid throughout the whole movie was so awkward yet hilarious especially in the bar fight with the vampires . Also Salma Hayek made this solid 7 of a movie an 8 for obvious reasons. Clooney could decently act. The ending was sick because the zooming out showed that they haven't touched a small piece of the "hell" they were in.

Only a 110 minute movie. Definitely had hilarious moments. The bathroom scene in the trailer at the boarder patrol had me dying. Added 0.5/10 just for that.

Also Tarantino was surprisingly a pretty solid actor.

Yeah, I love: Drama's, Crime's, Thriller's...

That's the shit. As well some Action and Mysterie's (The Prestige, Shutter Island, Fight Club.. Those kind of Mysteries).

A good Comedy is nice aswell

My father, brother, and I have all the same favorite movie: "GoodFellas"

Tarantino has his moments. Too bad his part in Django Unchained is one of the worst performances in a major film I've ever seen.

Palo Alto - 8.5/10

I've been looking forward to this for a while. However I still was a bit surprised at how enjoyable it was and how much I liked it. Definitely a solid debut from Gia Coppola.

I thought Django was ok. I wasn't that impressed by it. Samuel Jackson's character though

Granted I was also watching it while I was waiting for a final grade from college to be posted. I kept checking my computer every 10 mins.

We're the millers - 6.5/10 - surprisingly wasn't terrible like I was expecting. Had a few laughs and the story wasn't as terrible as most comedies these days.

Guardians of the Galaxy

8/10

Entertaining, funny, engaging film. I'm not a huge Marvel guy, buy I enjoyed this one.

Probably my favorite comedy film of 2013. Love me some Jason Sudeikis





Just watched Changeling again with Angelina Jolie. I give it a 7.6/10, almost too uncomfortable to watch knowing it's based on a true story.

Spoiler in white:
The scenes where she is locked up in a psychiatric ward and electrified gave me that stomach sinking feeling and that's hard to do with me.

It's a pretty powerful film and don't watch if you're not in the mood to be disturbed on a psychological level. Fantastic film though.

I watched Forrest Gump again- 9.5/10

I'm so happy that my ex introduced this movie to me years ago in high school. Always loved watching it. I love the "running" scene after Jenny leaves him again.

The movie also makes me think growing up in the 50s and 60s must have been crazy. I really thought this was Tom Hanks best performance ever and he's had some really great performances. Definitely one of the GOAT actors IMO of the 1990s.
