"The Internal Bleeding Dance." - Violet
Five Easy Pieces (1970, multiple rewatch)




Complicated, with a "free willy" attitude. I watch it for the acting alone. Some characters you like, some you despise. A good mix of drama and fun. All about escape and reminds me of The Catcher in the Rye.

"The Internal Bleeding Dance." - Violet
Best Seller (1987, multiple rewatch)
+



I'm a fan of Dennehy and Woods, so, this movie was made for me. If you think those Point Break robbery masks were an original idea, think again.




Too Young To Die (2016)


Kinda mixed up. I enjoy typical kankurou kudo's comedy and these one have captivating idea/plot for me. There are lot creative, ridiculous, funny ideas around, have clumsy practical effects+setting that's increase the absurdity value xD, with starsudded and lovable cast (+some cameo the like marty friedman).
My problem is the songs kinda hit and miss(pale in comparison with Detroit Metal City), turn down the my mood and most of cameraworks is very annoying. Well in the end I feel it's fine movie at least. Not fully meet my hype unfortunately





I loved every second



Rear Window + Vertigo?
It was good! A lot of hot/naked girls
I'm kidding, it was a great plot! Beautiful homenage to Hichcook in a
De Palma way.
I approve of these ratings!



28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
I like The Man in the Iron Mask and I thought Hunt For The Wilderpeople was top ten material.

Suspect's Reviews



Fantastic Planet -



This was very good. I don't have too much to say about it, it was pretty odd, surreal and creepy with very interesting and creative animation. The story and the drawings kind of got to me which i wasn't expecting, i dunno it was kind of unsettling but in a good way. Terr's face was terrifying; think i'll be having nightmares about that. It's weird i feel like i shouldn't have liked this but i ended up getting sucked in. Anyway very good, glad i watched it for the tournament as i probably wouldn't have in time for the sci-fi countdown and it will now be in consideration for my list.





It's Kind of a Funny Story (2009)




Gone Girl


This is a tricky one, starts of wonderful and mysterious, gets you pulled in and confused even more through the middle of the movie, but it kinda starts falling apart in the last part of the movie, I don't mean the ending, ending was fine and surprising to be honest, I mean last part of the movie in general, can't say too much without spoiling but yea... Acting is great, well written dialog, interesting characters and twists, smart flashbacks... If movie kept going as strong until the end it would have been phenomenal.

8/10
Agree with just about everything you've said about this movie.

Glad you liked this! This its story style grows on you after awhile.



The Killers (1946)




From the noirs list, this has one of those stories that's told mostly in flashback, and it's told very well. Burt Lancaster wasn't quite ready to carry a movie on his own, but that's ok because the rest of the cast is very good. It's early yet, but it goes on my list for consideration for the eventual 40's countdown.





Joy

I will start off by saying I am not really a fan of JLaw but I will agree that she can act. This movie is not as good as silver linings playbook and seemed a bit pointless to make in my opinion. It was an interesting enough story but it wasn't really a story I wanted to know or cared about. Bob DeNiro is great in this and these days seems to choose odd roles and seems to not really care about his acting ability at times. I thought casting Bradley Cooper just for the sake of it was odd, he pretty much gets very little screen time and his impact in the story is minimal. Overall the movie was good with an average story but with great acting in it.

6.5/10 Stars

Miss Vicky's Loyal and Willing Slave

Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

Delighted to see another fan of this. Of all the movies I've seen so far from 2016 it's either my 2nd or 3rd favourite. I know Sean really likes it as well



Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor, & King Hereafter
Kung Fu Panda - 9/10 - I love animated movies and I love martial arts movies. While this film didn't bring the best of either genre, it still did a great job in providing both in a way that would be enjoyable for anyone!

Kung Fu Panda 2 - 9/10 - Basically what I said about the previous one. Only difference is that this is, of course, the sequel.

Between the two, I'd say I enjoyed the first one just a tad more. Will be seeing Kung Fu Panda 3 soon.

Crime School (1938)




Crime School stars Humphrey Bogart and a popular gang of actors from the day known as the Dead End Kids. It's one of his lesser known films, and one of their best films IMO. It's a drama about a group of juvenile delinquents who catch a bum rap and are sent to reform school. Reform schools, which are now obsolete, were known for hardening their inmates, pushing them to become real criminals once they got out. And these kids were not really bad per se, but more so underprivileged. The Dead End Kids experienced the weariness, abuse, and hard labor like everyone else. One kid, a big mouth, got it worse than others. Upon discovering what was going on, it became up to one man, Bogart, to put an end to the cruel behavior executed by the staff, primarily the head of the school who viewed punk kids as nothing more than disobedient animals.

If you're a Bogie fan, a Bowery Boys/Dead End Kids fan, or someone who wants to start out on the Dead End Kids film series, watch this one.




Crime School, that's a Bogart film I've never seen. Sounds interesting and a bit like Hell House (1932) with Pat O'Brien. You ever see that one. It's a pretty good pre-code film.
