76 76% Joker (2019) - Oct 13, 2019
"Great! The slow burn of Fleck turning into Joker is done well. I had no expectations going in, but thought he would turn very quickly. To see every pain along the way is great storytelling. Along with Phoenix's acting, I really like the way guns and action were handled in this film. In other action flicks guns and violence feel meaningless and leave no impact on the audience. Joker does that better. Here I was constantly on edge for when that next !BANG! came. That's what theaters do with you."
75 75% Ikiru (1952) - Oct 12, 2019
"Great! Didn't expect to like this very much given its length, but I was entertained. Kurosawa's mastery of the camera shines in this film, with every shot leaving you wondering what's coming next, who's moving next or when someone will 'break' and spill the beans in front of the camera. Takashi did great as an actor, but I didn't like his character the slightest bit. I was waiting the whole time for him to 'break' and when it happened it didn't feel fulfilling. Maybe it's supposed to be that way"
58 32% The Narrow Margin (1952) - Oct 09, 2019
"Pretty 'aight. Very fast paced 'noiry' film. Trains are great for suspense, but Hitchcock did it better in 'The Lady Vanishes'"
40 12% Peter Pan (1953) - Oct 05, 2019
"Freaking ADHD scream festival this is. Peter pan's character has no depth and when he finally gets to make an important decision characterwise in saving tinkerbell's life or the lives of the rest, nothing happens. no morals to be learned here, but the duo of Hook and Smee makes up for it."
65 49% The Bourne Supremacy (2004) - Sep 30, 2019
79 82% Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Sep 22, 2019
"Lovely, funny and very rewatchable"
50 24% The African Queen (1951) - Sep 21, 2019
"Charming, but it needs a lot of time before it starts to get moving. These characters shouldn't have worked together but by the power of cinema they worked through it. Also did that guy just threw a cat of the Louisa?"
23 3% The Three Musketeers (2011) - Sep 18, 2019
30 7% Rancho Notorious (1952) - Sep 15, 2019
"Forgettable. Bland main character who doesn't even blink when turning to a life of crime. Film feels als though it misses half an hour of second act goodness to flesh out the stakes. "
45 17% Early Summer (1951) - Sep 14, 2019
"Not really my cup of tea. I find it hard to empathize with the characters, but that's mostly due to cultural differences of the time and place. Still, even when you break down the characters with their motivations its hard to wrap your mind around who wants what. Everybody is so focused on what someone else has to do to make them happy that no one is ever happy with what they've got. I recognize Ozu's power with the static shot, but this is just plain boring."
