  • Good Time

    Good Time

    ★★★★½

    The night is dangerous and anything can happen. Good Time is the kind of meandering crime film I've been wanting for a long time now. It is wholly unique both in regards to the execution of the material as well as the unending, underworld maze of obstacles that are created by and befall the protagonist played perfectly by Robert Pattinson.

    The filmmakers, the Safdie Brothers, are addicted to close-ups as they make up what feels like the true majority of…

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★½

    34th Watch of Hooptober 8!

    ------------------

    Decided to re-watch a classic and personal favorite for Halloween. And, as of this viewing, the latter of these has been confirmed all the more. Wonderfully shot and gleefully performed The Invisible Man is a wild, mad scientist romp.

    The effects still impress me and aside from a few dated edges, are rather seamless. However, it's the pacing that stood out to me most upon this viewing. At 71 minutes, not a second is…

    Beyond the Black Rainbow

    ★★½

    33rd Watch of Hooptober 8!

    ------------------

    Beautifully shot, lit, designed and directed, it's clear that Cosmatos knows what he wants to present with Beyond the Black Rainbow. However, what he wants isn't my thing beyond the aforementioned praises.

    An experience so deeply steeped in the hypnotic visual that its story got left unattended. The result is an album and half's worth of music videos cut together. It's full of theme, but devoid of a driving beat until far too late…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    One of the greatest action films I've ever seen. I am still in awe of the pulse pounding adrenaline that unapologetically makes up the entire film. There is literally almost no down time in this movie. Seriously, action every second. We start by seeing Max quickly have everything taken from him. After that...madness. The villains are insane. George Miller's world of Mad Max is so well fleshed out. It is imaginative, inventive and breathtaking. The incredible cinematography switches between a…

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★★

    Here it is ladies and gentlemen. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is perhaps the most divisive movie I've ever seen/been a part of. Both critics and fans are contending why this was an achievement or an utter failure. I have to say though that I enjoyed this. I'm not checking this one as "Contains Spoilers" simply on the grounds that most of this was made known in the trailers or was ruined by critic click bait headlines. Don't worry…
