Bio: I am a huge movie buff, and only a couple people I know personally share the same passion as I do. I spent a year away from this site and I thought I would come back. Not only do I truly miss being on here reviewing films and seeing other peoples opinions, but in this past year I have noticed a massive change in my taste in films. I used to for the most part agree with critics, but arguing good and bad films with people I know, and how much I differ, really was the impetus to getting me back on here. I am glad to be back!
|88 T9||Gran Torino (2008) - Jan 14, 2009
"Gran Torino is one of the better films I have seen in a long while. Clint Eastwood's character Walt Kowalski is one big bad ass, and this is where Gran Torino shines. Eastwood portrays one of the most memorable characters not only of his career, but in the past decade. Sure this film has its flaws, most notably the younger actors, but there is no denying the power of this film. This film throws you stereotype after stereotype, and slur after slur, and you know what, I love every second of it. "
|89 T9||Shutter Island (2010) - Mar 05, 2010
"Shutter Island is a deep and complex picture. It is more than what is tossed to us. It is an examination of a man, his sanity, and the avocation of the populace. The film is too predictable. You know it, I know it, but I believe it is obvious for a reason. Scorsese made a film that is purely psychological; there is NO twist. What we the viewer are left with is an ending that is meant to be explored to the point of being able to find the answer only in between the lines, and in the shades of grey"
|99 T10||A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Feb 08, 2007
"A Clockwork Orange is easily one of the greatest, and yet strangest and controversial films of all time. When you sit down and watch this film, you will have a large variety of emotions going through you. You'll watch this film and be disturbed about what you see, and yet you can't help but laugh at some of the things they say. It's truly a unique experience. Kubrick paints a perfect portrait of the future, filled with memorable scenes and a great score. Unique and Different. "
|91 T10||Inglourious Basterds (2009) - Aug 22, 2009
"Tarantino's best film since Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds is a relentless, and at times disgusting film with some snappy dialogue, and some incredibly hilarious moments. Brad Pitt and the Basterds are easily the funniest part of the movie, but one unforgettable thing about this film is the performance by Christoph Waltz. With Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino crosses the line, but he does it in a way where you are not questioning why, but simply accepting. "
