About Time review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 13 February 2014 03:32 (A review of About Time)

So thoroughly genuine and heartfelt that it is hard to fault the movie for anything. Simple romance, simple family snapshot that makes for an extraordinarily touching movie.

People Like Us review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 4 February 2014 12:14 (A review of People Like Us)

It's a strange show in the sense that it would have worked better as a rom com, but it wasn't. I don't really know what the point of the movie was but it was at the very least brisk in pace and had relatively decent acting all-around.

Training Day review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 3 February 2014 12:41 (A review of Training Day)

Very solid acting all-around. Nice to see both leads slowly break down over the course of the movie. Suspenseful and not a boring minute.

17 Again review

Posted : 3 years, 8 months ago on 26 January 2014 01:42 (A review of 17 Again)

Whilst just a shade cheesy and typical, this movie made me feel good in that simplistic way. If for nothing else, this movie is great for some lighthearted fun. Don't think too much about everything and it should be fine.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead review

Posted : 3 years, 9 months ago on 25 January 2014 09:10 (A review of Before the Devil Knows You're Dead)

A little slow-moving, but was interesting to see how some small things slowly escalated to bigger things. Acting was good all-around, plot was realistic but could have been paced a little faster. Not a typical entertaining thriller for sure, but still one worth the watch.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit review

Posted : 3 years, 9 months ago on 21 January 2014 02:58 (A review of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit )

It started out relatively intriguing and smart, but eventually dawdled on to a rather uninspired ending. It was refreshing to have an espionage movie to not be inundated with action scenes and such, but perhaps the balance was tilted too much towards mental leaps in logic on the protagonist's part. Personally I still loved it, but I have a healthy affection for both Chris Pine and Keira Knightley thus I may be a tad biased.

In the Mood for Love review

Posted : 3 years, 10 months ago on 15 December 2013 09:13 (A review of In the Mood for Love)

Such great mise-en-scene, such great acting and the whole movie felt so poignant. It feels like you're standing on the precipice of a great love story, but never really found the courage to jump. When you're done with the movie, you're left with the slight regretful feeling of "what if".

Getaway review

Posted : 3 years, 10 months ago on 12 December 2013 12:54 (A review of Getaway)

This movie, to sum it up simply, was one car chase too many. While the car chases were a tad hard to follow at times, having the feel of watching a 5 year old play Crazy Taxi, the storyline was basically spoonfed to the audience. At no point did I need to even use a bit of thinking to ponder about the story; at no point did Ethan Hawke's character need to use any bit of thinking either because Selena Gomez's character will TELL YOU EVERYTHING. Problem? She knows how to solve it. Why are they doing this to them? She knows why. How are they doing it? She knows why. Cars? She knows what. It's a little insulting and thus got extremely boring towards the end. Not worth a watch unless you really really like car chases, in which case this is like a crazy montage which I guess could be enjoyable.

New York, I Love You review

Posted : 3 years, 10 months ago on 10 December 2013 02:27 (A review of New York, I Love You)

While the individual filmlets(?) were mildly intriguing and vaguely entertaining, the film lacked a sense of unity and seemed to have little relation from one scene to the other apart from the fact that they all took place in New York.

Daybreakers review

Posted : 3 years, 10 months ago on 9 December 2013 03:00 (A review of Daybreakers)

Very interesting concept and take on the vampire genre. However, it suffers from bad execution, editing that was not tight enough and at times pretty bad product placement (the car, always the car). Acting was spotty for some of the minor characters. The sets were a toss-up between beautiful and cheesy so that was a tad of a waste. Overall probably worth watching if only for food for thought.
