Ice Cube steals every scene he's in (21 jump street too).
Straight outta Comptom.
Well he is the type of [black person] that's built to last
I caught Interstellar in the cinema.
McConaughey was superb as usual, he captured a variety of emotional states very well. Honestly, the man is challenging my love for Christian Bale as my favourite actor. Ann Hathaway did a very good job. Micheal Caine seemed to easily reach his acting heights, he is just stupidly consistent.
The visuals and music were absolutely stunning. The music at times was perfect for each scene, it set the emotional atmosphere intuitively.
I have to say this film can be a tear jerker. It has a boatload of sentimentality with many touching scenes, you could feel the emotional stress going on, I guess that's the mark of an excellent director. With that in mind the film is filled with plenty of comedic relief which provides a good balance to the whole spectacle. Whilst the film lasts almost three hours it feels like it should be longer with the topic it deals with.
RE THE EMOTION: I think that scene where Cooper is on the bed with Murphy when he is about to leave for launch was extremely powerful. If your tear ducks are liable to overflow this film will do it. I was almost brought to tears!
I question the inclusion of the son/brother. He is barely developed and the emotional connection is never explored. I think his presence was permitted just to allow Murphy to search her book case when she was an adult. Hell, when Cooper finally returns to that Saturn colony he never once asks for his son, only his daughter!
Personally I loved this film but I think people without a hint of curiosity in space will struggle. There are parts where people may have to suspend belief to enjoy the film and I know that can be difficult.
Right now I will give it a 9/10 but that is liable to change.
As I mentioned in my 'review', I don't think the story was all that good. Pulling a Deus Ex Machina and then pulling a Deus Ex Machina to explain the first Deus Ex Machina? Nice job, guys.
I've come to believe that the top tier British actors and actresses are incapable of giving a poor performance, even if the movie itself sucks. Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole, Helen Mirren, Julie Andrews, etc.. Hmm, maybe it's a generational thing. They just made 'em better back then.
And you two are the worst people I've seen at spelling actors' names correctly. It's a pet peeve of mine.
PD: V only has one mistake, but it's too terrible to look at it more than 0 times.
I would like to read a review about what Owen thinks about Interstellar.
Well there is that movie of Peter O' Toole with Peter Sellers.
what's eating gilbert grape
very good. I don't know if i'd call it excellent though--it is a bit too sappy, particularly in the last bits
but damn good
Jack Reacher. It was exactly what I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I certainly understand the less-than-stellar critical reception.
Zodiac. Pretty damn good.
Coincidentally, I watched the latest David Fincher.
Gone Girl. Pretty damn good. This has been a fine year for cinema so far.
Just watched Nightcrawler which reminded me strongly of Drive. Not sure how to rate it yet...
saw rain man
it's solid enough
Big Hero 6 - 7/10
Good stuff. Not quite top-shelf, but a great way to spend 100 minutes on a Saturday morning.
to give some ratings I guess, gilbert grape was near 8/10, rainman 7/10, nebraska 7/10
Dracula Untold. More Dracula for those who like it.
Lucy. Had the feeling I'd seen it before. Interesting concept, but poorly developed. Not a lot of acting going on. Probably a must-see for fans of the actress.
The Gangster of love.
Watching the latest Godzilla now. It's pretty dumb.
