True Grit review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 2 August 2011 01:37 (A review of True Grit )

I was eager to watch this movie because I really enjoyed No country for old men. Watching the ads on television showed Jeff Bridge's great job as deputy marshal Rooster cogburn. I knew I was not going to be let down by his performance and I was not. He did a wonderful job bringing this character to life. The viewer will get involved in the story to the point that they feel they are there riding along with rooster and mattie, facing the things that they face. Also the character of Mattie ross was one that we don't see much in films. Sure we see strong young women stand up for themselves in movies but Mattie brings it to another level as you get a real sense of boldness and strength from her but there is also a vulnerability about her that cannot be escaped. Matt Damon's character Texas Ranger LaBoeuf was quite impressive. I personally had doubt's about Damon's involvement in this film. But he did a good job of playing his character. Now on one note I would say that some of the dialogue did have me space out and lost from time to time, but it's the type of thing where you can easily be brought right back into the conversation while dwelling on something else that was said. The re-watch value of this film is quite high. Since I've seen the movie I have wanted to watch it again. The setting and the characters, as well as the journey they set off on is something I look forward to revisiting. Like No country for old men, the film's ending is kind of a "Ummmm Okay" situation, but it's everything that led to the ending that matters most with this film. If you're the type of viewer that appreciates dialogue, and have not seen this movie I recommend it. But for the viewers that are not too high on dialogue and character this film might drag for you.

WALL·E review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 2 August 2011 01:19 (A review of WALL·E)

This was a fun movie to watch. Wall-e's character is one that exhibits innocence and love. There is no doubt that the viewer will instantly like this character. The setting is one that is quite interesting to see Pixar visit, It seems over the top by some aspects but it slightly mirrors the the impersonal attitude that the film makers want us to realize is being created by society's decisions. Most of the relationships in the film remain pretty impersonal but the viewer can take it for what it is,as the primary relationship focus is on Wall-E and Eve. This is a film that I held off from watching because it was not really what I am used to from Disney/Pixar but I am glad I watched it. The re-watch value for me personally is moderate. Don't get me wrong I would watch it again, I really enjoyed the film as I watched it; But I am not rushing to watch it again. If you have not seen this movie, then stop holding off and check it out.

The Dark Knight review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 2 August 2011 01:10 (A review of The Dark Knight)

The Dark Knight is an excellent film. While watching it you totally forget that this is based off of a comic book and you get completely absorbed into it. The characters of Bruce Wayne, The Joker and Harvey Dent are captivating and the story is one that will keep you entertained and anticipating what will happen next. The re-watch value of the film is high, mainly because the viewer gets to really analyze the depth of the characters and the decisions that they each make. Highly recommend this film.
