Before Midnight

 

:star1::star1::star1::star1::star3:

 

 

What I have always loved about Linklater's intellectual romantic saga is that it is the only series of movies that showcase a relationship in real time! And that they manage to do realistically, which this third chapter is the best proof of. They simply reflect real life relationships, the passion of the beginning and the progression of the middle and the regression of the end! The best part is that it can go on as long as the director and the actors want! Its simply brilliant.

 

 

Only God Forgives

This movie is where the styles and themes of all Nicolas Winding Refn's previous movies meet, but despite all the references to previous hits this is his most pretentious and boring opus so far! Mostly because of its artsy snail pacing and unbalanced mix of silent and spoken scenes.

Captain Phillips

 

:star1::star1::star1::star1::star3:

 

 

An intense and exciting movie, based on true story. I think Tom Hanks managed to pull off yet another great acting conveying the horrific experience of the captain during the ransom hours. His acting at the end in particular was spectacular. I liked it very much

Gravity

 

:star1::star1::star1::star1::star2:

 

Loved it, the videography and scenery of the movie was just breathtaking, not to mention its moments of thrill and dreadful experience of wandering around in the space. Sandra Bullock did a marvelous job and pretty much single-handedly played almost the entire movie. One of my favorite movies of the year so far!

Looking forward to watch Gravity next week!

 

 

Rush

 

:star1::star1::star1::star1::star3:

 

At times Howard's dramatization looks and sounds far too stylized to maintain an air or realism, but its technically a well-made movie and the vintage looking racing footages are a feast for the eyes, even for someone like me who has no interest whatsoever in cars!

 

 

The Internship

:star2::star3::star3::star3::star3:

 

This movie gives Google Ad a whole new meaning! It was really embarrassing to see Vince and Owen selling out so cheaply in this longest running ad for a company!

 

 

Monsters University

:star1::star1::star1::star1::star3:

 

Some animated features do not appeal to me aesthetically, this and its predecessor are two of them. But what they do not have for me visually they deliver in terms of story and characters.

R.I.P.D.

 

:star1::star1::star1::star3::star3:

 

 

I was never a fan of Men in Black and this has basically a very similar concept, even the special effects look dated as if they were done back in the 90's! The only thing that made this movie enjoyable was Jeff Bridges hilarious character and the fact that he had turned his recent cowboy act to something really funny. It was refreshing to see him doing a comedy for once.

Bad Grandpa

 

:star1::star1::star1::star3::star3:

 

Overall not too bad, but to me nothing on par with movies like Borat or even Bruno, all together an ok work by Johnny Knoxville I guess
