A 1950's gangster musical with nothing but Sinatra on the soundtrack.

The 90s comedy/drama road trip movie. A group of friends heading to the Nirvana unplugged taping. I would use all the grunge music of that era

Nocturnal Animals



Nocturnal_animals_michael_poster

Directed by: Tom Ford
Written by: Tom Ford
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Isla Fisher, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Armie Hammer
Studio: Focus Features
Genre: Drama, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: Amy Adams gets a novel that seems to be very personal

Review:

It is crazy to think that Tom Ford who is best known as a fashion designer could make the leap to movies so seamlessly with just two films under his belt. With Nocturnal Animals, he further proves his knack for visuals and storytelling with this tale of criminals and fancy art...[more]...

I'm progressing through writer19's profile from when he first joined and I'm reading excitement for the first Avengers and how John Krasinski will be Captain America. Oh how time flies.

Watched Nocturnal Animals last night. Big complaint is that the characters in the main story are not very interesting. However, there is a great thriller inside coupled with some great performances. Gyllenhaal continues to impress and Michael Shannon is awesome. I will also give props to Kick Ass for being the slimiest bastard I've seen in a film in quite some time.

Passengers



Passengers-poster-new

Directed by: Morten Tyldum
Written by: Jon Spaihts
Cast: Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Adventure, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: Two people are stuck on a spaceship

Review:

The script to Passengers was on the Blacklist for a long time which is a compilation of long sought scripts that haven't been made at the time. With that level of hype, it is easy to imagine how this movie could be a big hit with its plot involving space travel and the concept of loneliness. Add sci-fi and a romantic subplot and you have the formula for a smash hit. However, the promise of the script counteracted from the execution of the film to deliver a fairly entertaining yet disappointing film...[more]...

Avengers: Infinity War has to be the biggest movie of all time. The cast, the scope, and the budget are astronomical in comparison to most blockbusters.

Question for everyone here if you've seen the movie: Was La La Land racist? Need some perspective

It was the most racist movie I've seen in a long, long time. It opens with the genocidal murdering of every african American in California which I thought was an odd way to open a musical. Later down the line they start escorting all the Jewish Hollywood execs into gas chambers and the finale had Native American tribal killings.

Shit was wild but the songs were great!

Maybe to the goobers who think literally any movie with white main characters is racist, but to sane people it was most definitely not.

But, no, seriously I think people are just trying to stir up shit and create a controversy where there isn't one.

I feel its crazy how the movie is made out to be some white supremacy tool. You can call it light, fluffy story and thin characters, and even sappy, but racist? I just can't wrap my head around that.

A white guy loves jazz. He sees a guy he knew play jazz in a different manner. He's a purist. All purists resist change. Race is not a factor in a person's passion. John Legend isn't depicted as some conniving sleazy musician in it for the money. He clearly has passion for it, but he shows it in a different way compared to Gosling. Michael B Jordan was apparently in talks to be in the lead role and would the movie be any different had that happened?

As a Puerto Rican male, if I were to take up jazz and ended up loving it, does that mean I am shut out from giving my opinions on it? Because jazz stems from black culture, I don't have the right enjoy it because my race didn't assist in originating it? It's like if some white guy loved salsa music (listens and collects records) and even performed it, it's taking away from the Latin culture?

I can admit that there is a problem where the media loves to put a pretty face on anything to sell it to the world. That's advertising 101 right there. However, if a piece of media can take a topic and showcase it in a respectful manner, then what does race or gender have to do with it? Make the effort to diversify of course, but what does tearing down those that love it that do not conform with that worlds' race or gender accomplish?

I'm still waiting for Scream Factory to release Deep Rising on Blu-Ray.

Passengers and its central idea is very touchy. It could have tackled it much better, but it chooses to put on kid gloves. It's a mixed bag for sure. I'll have to sleep on it.

The Good Dinosaur



Good_dinosaur_poster

Directed by: Peter Sohn
Written by: Bob Peterson
Cast: John Lithgow, Judy Greer, Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris, Frances McDormand
Studio: Disney Pixar
Genre: Adventure, Animation, Family
Official Site:
Plot: A dinosaur is scared of everything.

Review:

The Good Dinosaur has faced a lot of problems in terms of production with it being delayed several times before finally being released in 2015. The movie itself places itself in the middling average section of Pixar's filmography. A gorgeous looking film that has some good moments, but it is dragged down by weak characters and a well worn story...[more]...

Monsters University



Monsters-university-big-pos

Directed by: Dan Scanlon
Written by:
Cast: John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi
Studio: Walt Disney
Genre: Animation, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: Mike and Sully go to college

Review:

Monsters Inc was a great entry into Pixar's filmography. It didn't need a prequel. The story presented for Mike and Sully started and ended in the first film in a satisfying manner. However, Pixar decided to move forward with this prequel where we see Mike and Sully in college to learn about scaring. The end result is a typical underdog college film (aimed at kids) that while cliché it still manages to entertain.

Good: The animation is great as always is expected from the studio. The gags involving the college setting are fun and bring a few laughs. It follows the Revenge of the Nerds storyline to a tee, but they add some colorful side characters. The voice acting is strong from all involved.

Bad: The biggest drawback is just how unnecessary it is. We didn't need to see Mike and Sully meet and learn how to scare. It doesn't add much to the original in terms of story or character. The story is also predictable that when connected with the needless structure of the movie enhances just how unnecessary it is.

Overall, it's nothing offensively bad, but the needless nature of it does hurt it along with the cliché route of going back to college. It still provides some laughs worthy of one watch so if you are a Pixar completist.

Manchester By The Sea



Manchester-by-the-sea-poster

Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
Written by: Kenneth Lonergan
Cast: Casey Affleck, Gretchen Mol, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan
Studio:
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: An uncle moves to Manchester to take care of his nephew after his brother dies.

Review:

Casey Affleck no matter what he does has always been under his brother's shadow. Even starring in his brother's film Gone Baby Gone, it seems the attention was on Ben. However, Casey finally stars in what I think is his true acting showcase with Manchester By the Sea. This film takes a fly on the wall look into grief and acceptance with powerful results without being too overpowering and packing with emotion...[more]...
