Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Revolutionary Road - **** (9/10)
- 2008 drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, directed by Sam Mendes. This is a marvelous film about that "fake ideal" of the American dream set around marriages in the 1950's and around those times. It is written with fierce dialogue, and strong characters worried about their future and ending up unhappy. DiCaprio and Winslet gave me absolute chills in this movie, as their chemistry together was perfect. Also spectacular as Michael Shannon, who plays a slightly mental intellectual who mirrors the thoughts of our main characters best. It is a very smart movie that digs in deep and draws some blood.
Angel Heart - ***1/2 (8/10)
- 1987 horror/thriller starring Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro, and Lisa Bonet. Rourkes character is an investigator hired by a man named Cyphere (De Niro) to find out where Johnny Favorite is. As it slowly builds, we think it might just be a simple investigative story, but suddenly bodies start dropping and the horror starts coming for our protagonist. It's a very nit n' grit movie, directed with that usual detective style, and its great to watch the suspense build steadily, as quicker and quicker we realize just what is coming. Best of all, the payoff is great.
My Bloody Valentine 3-D - *** (7/10)
- 2009 slasher movie starring hot babes and cute guys. I dont really like slasher movies, but it was nice to see this one avoid that 30-45 minutes of bullshit in the beginning where the teens just run around, drink, and party, and get terrible plot exposition that goes nowhere. This gets straight into the killing, and really never stops. Its a great adrenaline rush, and a straight-up fun time at the theaters. Everything you'd expect from it is here. In 3-D or not, its a solid well-made horror movie.
cool and smooth, that's how i play.
