Loyalties and disloyalty within crooks and police. Some nice camera work and good scenery, but I loose interest half way and the movie becomes whimsical and pointless. Good make-up.

Interesting because I liked it alot

It's good but I agree it kind of gets dull halfway in. Wish they went more into his younger years personally. I only know stories from having family members grow up with him

I watched it on a plane earlier this year and didn't really enjoy it. 

 

I much preferred "The Departed" which, while based on the Hong Kong movie "Infernal Affairs", was also based on Whitey Bulger's story - Irish-American crime boss in Boston who trades off info to the FBI in return for them largely ignoring his criminal activities.

Was expecting this to (at best) be like a Young Guns for the new millenium, but even with its good cast the characters never became very interesting. Not really worth the trip to the cinema.

Sully

 

I liked it.  I did not remember all the details of the actual event.  It was cool to have a shorter movie- about 1 1/2 hours.

 

Cheers,

Brooklyn - John Crowley (2015)

 

 

Sweet and touching story about the need to find your own path even if your roots are deep; loyalty and how to be true to your self.  Beautiful photography and really nice acting of Saoirse Ronan. Well spend time and money-

^I was going to post this too.

Excellent and moving. Ronan is very captivating in this movie and I thought I have seen her somewhere. Yes, the Grand Budapest Hotel.

And Grand Budapest Hotel is a fantastic movie. Real joy and everything works perfect together.

Wes Anderson is my favorite director, but he really needs to get Owen Wilson back on his writing team. Left unchecked (or surrounded by yes men) his films just seem to feel more weighted and Byzantine without the right counterbalance of heart or whatever that made his earlier films so special.

A fun music video kinda flick like Lord of War was but, uh, that "lite". Left the cinema kinda on a moral downer though just like I recall leaving Lord of War feeling lol. *didnt realize a Todd Phillips joint til the ending credits ran. Bradley Cooper in supporting role. Shoulda guessed it. Anyway 8/10. Barely. Wiki informs me 7/10 is avro. Worth the trip imo.

The big short - Adam McKay (2015)

 

 



Docu-drama about the Wall street and crisis in 2008. Boring from start to end. All but, Brat Pitt is fail.

Script is mess, like educating for school children; bad education, and editing is confusing. How could Christiian Bale accept a part as this? He must have been insane.

Not sure if I saw The Blind Side, but generally I think movies made from Lewis' books amplify the shortcomings of his writing and lose the strong points.

post #14055 of 14471
