    The Wes Group - 8 of 9

    Going to write something extra special for this one, but give me some time.

    Edit:Β How does one talk about something that has been their favorite film for such a long time? A film with so many layers to its storytelling, but with such a simplistic story behind all of it?Β 

    I suppose you’d start with the story. A young girl sits in a cemetery reading a novel. An author suffering from writer’s block…

    And like that, it’s done.Β 

    You can’t go home again. Your home has changed and so have you. A man walks into a river from his childhood, but it is not the same. The river is different now and the man is older.Β 

    So much time on the road, people get older and start to die. Wounds heal but scars remain. It all started with a young woman wrapped in plastic, but now Pete can go…

    Peter Jackson 13

    (Extended)

    β€œThere is still some mystery left in this world, and we can all have a piece of it for the price of an admission ticket.”

    A giant sappy romance movie that is a gigantic B-movie homage via remake of Jackson’s own favorite movie.Β 

    Long, occasionally racially insensitive, but a gorgeous time of an epic romance. The horrors on the island are some of the most thrilling blockbuster work I’ve seen in some time. Wish people regularly…

    Cronenberg 22

    Crimes that we are not quite beyond. Our bodies are changing, our world is decaying, and pain becomes the new sex. David becoming reflective on the genre that he created and made his own.Β 

    Of the many amazing performances, it is hard to nail down a favorite. Stewart in twitchy little freak mode is delightful in her screen time, but I think all do wonderful. Viggo/Seydoux - a perfect match.Β 

    The gore is not overwhelmingly cringe inducing this…

    Scorsese Retrospective Film 15

    He's a master. This is one of his masterworks. Easily the best film of the year, and easily top 5 of his features. This just needs a rewatch for the 5 stars. I loved every minute of this. Every ounce of humor, every crumb of pain, and every sense of gangster-style remorse. This was perfect. Thank you for not letting me down, Marty.

    This was great, but I am still processing it so... Gimme a while.
