(5/5) WOW!!! Talk about under the radar great movies. I saw the preview a while ago and could not wait to see the film. My favorite aspect of the film was the plot. What you thought was the ending was just the beginning. As life tends to go sometimes bad decisions came to haunt the characters in the film in the future in the most ironic and painful way. I loved the performances and the story. CHECK THIS FILM OUT!!! The highly anticipated new drama from director Derek Cianfrance (“Blue Valentine”) powerfully explores the consequences of motorcycle rider Luke’s (Academy Award nominee Ryan Gosling) fateful decision to commit a crime to support his child. The incident renders him targeted by policeman Avery (Golden Globe Award nominee Bradley Cooper), and the two men become locked on a tense collision course which will have a devastating impact on both of their families in the years following (Rottentomatoes.com).
(2.5/5) Artistically this film was pretty good. A ton a symbolize, gave the film a novel like quality. I dont know about anyone else who has seen the film but I really felt this film had an Alfred Hitchcock aesthetic. At points the symbolize became overbearing making the film disjointed and I found myself losing interest. The cast was spot on. Matthew Goode is now in my top five favorite actors…I need more villain roles from him ASAP. I haven’t seen Nicole Kidman in a movie in a while so it was good to see her. After India’s (Mia Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him (Rottentomatoes.com).
(1/5) I really want to say that this was worse than the first. It used cliche horror movie elements from other horror films and adding the fact that monster she released into the world loved her…0_0…not going. Don’t waste your time with this one. Nothing scary, creepy or eerie about the film, just long and unnecessary. This film tried to find a story where there was none. Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana. Back in the relative safety of New Orleans, Nell realizes that she can’t remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning (Rottentomatoes.com). With the ending I hope they dont make another.
(4.6/5) With this rating, I have to retract my previous rating for Iron Man 3, demoting 5/5 to a 4/5. This film was definitely better than iron Man 3 but not better than some other films that I have given 5/5s. I was entertained but I was not left wanting to see it again and again like some other films. I was ready to give the film a 5/5 after the Kansas fight scene but the ending fight scene left me hanging. It reminded of the last fight scene in the matrix revolutions…a lot of CGI, throwing and flying. The Kansas fight scene was more hand to hand combat and was just amazing…marvel take note lol. Another aspect of the film that i did not like was the casting of General Zod. I was not feeling Michael Shannon’s performance. I wanted his character to be more sinister instead of crazy (I got more of a crazy vibe). I like the casting of everyone else…especially Faora-Ul. She gave the sinister vibe that I was missing from Zod. I like the way they presented the story. They did not take forever retelling the same story and it got to the action pretty quick. A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind (Rottentomatoes.com). i want to see more. i hope the sequels dont turn out to be a love story. What did you think of the latest Superman film?
