Youtube a detailed explanation on The Green Knight. I think it'll make you appreciate it a lot more.Last Night in Soho - cinema
I enjoyed this a fair bit, not Edgar Wrights best but still entertaining. I certainly didn't expect the twist at the end and I did enjoy the twist. Anya Taylor-Joy is fucking beautiful as usual and I enjoyed Thomasin McKenzie's acting even if her voice was tiny. I'll be happy to add this to my Edgar Wright library.
My problem with the film is that towards the end, the ghost men kept reminding me of the zombie people in The World's End and it was hard for me to take seriously.
The Green Knight - Amazon Prime
I'll admit straight up that I didn't understand entirely what was happening in this film but I really liked the visuals and the journey that Gawain went on. Don't expect any fighting or action because there isn't, just a slow paced journey across the countryside.
Holy shit, I gave it 30 minutes, but nah, can't do it. Perhaps, literally, the most cliche American Greetings card-like fucking cringe-fest I've ever tried to suffer through.
I'm a sucker for dude-based romantic comedies, especially those with a decently plotted love triangle. I'm a sap, sue me.
Steve Carell's ability to walk the tightrope between lovable chump who you can't help but empathize with, and awkward dolt who makes you wince in his inability to conform due to his inability read a room is on full display here.
Great Fall movie overall. Lots of warm colors. You really feel like you're on a vacation surrounded by the warmth of Dan's family, which only contrasts his internal emotional struggle more.
Still, you just wanna violently shake the dude, and scream, "Get over it, dude!" for the majority of the flick. There are a lot of times where Dane Cook is far more likeable as Dan's fitness focused brother, especially as Steve Carell's character tries to outshine him at every turn.
"Love is not a feeling, it's an ability," states Dan's daughter's love interest at a later point in the movie. If that's the message which the writer of Dan in Real Life wanted its audience to take away, then point well-taken.
Overall, I had fun. Seeing John Mulaney play the grandpa character was a treat also. I missed him from his days as Marty Crane in Frasier.
I'll try and give it another shot, but I couldn't get through it the time I tried to watch it. It just felt like I was being spoken to like a child. It felt like a very dumbed down way of telling the story.The Big Short (2015)
Really, really good film. Terriftic cast who have chemistry. Surprised by how invested I got in the plot too. Would watch again.
Some of the actors feel unrecognizable in this film, in a good way. They really become the characters.
Equilibrium - Stan
Terrible movie in every single respect. I finally watched this after my wife made me watch it, she said she loved it when she first saw it. After watching it again she realised how bad it was. I like the idea of an emotionless society but the movie just didn't work for me. Cristian Bale was constantly emotional throughout the film and most people didn't realise? And the action scenes, holy shit, they are down right corny shit, only entertaining in a bad way. It failed at the box office, failed critically, doesn't have a cult following and the director went on to direct Ultraviolet before basically disappearing.
