    Still remains with no doubt in my mind my favorite film.

    “I don’t want to die.”

    Rewatched this before Cry Macho.
    This is pretty much the opposite of Cry Macho. 
    It’s been two years since I’ve seen this film and I picked up the DVD recently and I decided to finally pop it in and witness this horror again.
    It’s been a long time since I’ve just sat through the credits of a film in complete shock and confusion.
    The last time I did that was Fire Walk with Me.

    Cry Macho

    ★★★★½

    This is a lofi road trip cowboy film.
    This film relaxed me and just put me in a great mental state. 
    The first 20 minutes or so are pretty slow but after that this film is damn near perfect.
    At the age of 91 Clint Eastwood gives the best performance of the year so far in my opinion.
    Beautiful cinematography coupled with stellar performances all around leads to an extremely entertaining relaxing ride.
    Great film.
    Definitely worth your time.
    That’s all I’ve got to say about this one.

    School has kept me extremely busy since I’m also involved in sports so I’ll be doing a few backlog reviews here and there if I don’t watch anything.
    So here’s my backlog review for 31 which I watched a year ago.
    This started of as 4 and slowly climbed up to a 5 for me.
    This film hits all the sweet spots for me.
    It’s grimy and feels lived in, is extremely brutal but somehow empathetic, and nails the ending.…

    ★★★★★

    Don’t really know what to write about this one.
    The most rewatchble film I’ve ever seen.
    Beautifully visually realized and musically is not at all what you’d expect from a Great Gatsby adaptation. 
    I love the book but I do prefer this film adaptation. 
    Something keeps me coming back to this film I don’t know what it is. 
    Tobey Macguire continues to prove he’s the goat. 
    He gives an extremely emotional performance as Nick.
    Leo is as full of energy…

    Casino Royale

    ★★★★½

    An ending can make or break a film for me. Twists can do the same.
    But this film manages not to mess up its ending or its twists.
    Those are its strongest suites. 
    Everything is built up to perfectly.
    The final 30 minutes is some of my favorite stuff in any Bond film.
    It really really nails the twist. 
    And the ending makes you hungry for more. 
    I already want to rewatch the rest of Craig’s films now. 
    It’s an extremely…

    I had fun with it. 
    So much better than the last time.
    Everyone in our theatre was actually quite. 
    So that adds some extra points for that alone. 
    But yeah pretty good movie.
    Not much more to say.
    One really good fight scene meh everything else. 
    The ending kinda brought it down for me but other than that had a good time.
    Just a better theatre experience brought this up for me.
    I found it to be a pretty forgettable…

    Still remains a 5/5.
    Unintentional prep for Malignant as well. 
    I love this movie to pieces.
    After a week full of craziness this was a nice break from it all.
    A perfect escape into fantasy. 
    It doesn’t try to be realistic at all which is it’s strongest point. 
    It just has fun and does what it wants to which is what makes it so good. 
    Wan’s direction is some of the best of the decade. 
    I don’t know how he…

    The Garden of Eden Cave

    Future and past collapse together as fragments of time buzz around the deserts. Weapons of past and future haunt the present. Images seemingly collapse into each other as characters meet only to disappear. The dead create life in a new plain of existence and search for vengeance. The memories of grandfathers house create a new story of the future within the past. The past becomes the future and the present becomes the past. The sins…

    Getting close to my birthday so I decided to rewatch a favorite. 
    This is a masterpiece of editing.
    It’s fast but not to fast and extremely energetic.
    It adds an extreme amount of intensity of the film.
    Where Retribution and Afterlife were more focused on the beautiful aesthetics this film is a non stop thrill ride. 
    It doesn’t care as much about the aesthetics and focuses more on the countdown. 
    It’s an explosion of energy. 
    This film pulls no punches…

    After my last viewing experience I didn’t exactly have the urge to watch movies for a bit.
    So I took a day off and just cooled down. 
    Then today I wanted to watch The Clock but I decided to wait and buy it on DVD instead. 
    So I ended up watching this. 
    Upped my rating to a five on this watch.
    By no means perfect but so utterly and completely joyful I can’t help but love it.
