1. ^doubt

    don’t mind the gif, the movie is in color. anyways, this movie is about a pastor who is suspected of having relations with a student of African descent. While there isn’t much to glean off of the first 30 minutes, things soon become difficult as lies and strange convictions surface, to the point where I began doubting everything that was going on. phillip seymour hoffman plays a fascinatingly likable, yet suspicious character. his character has so much charm, yet the movie leads you to believe he has perpetrated the crime for most of the movie. these are strong performances for strong characters, which is the main reason why the movie is good.

  2. ^the invisible war

    I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries lately, because they are informative and I don’t have to stare at the screen all the time. after watching a documentary about police brutality, I figured the natural thing to do was watch a movie about sexual assault in the military…. and I pretty much spent the next two hours with my mouth open. the statistics and reality of the situation is astoundingly horrific, with tens of thousands of incidents of rape occurring each year. what’s even more horrifying is the way these women are treated afterwards. even when given evidence, most rape cases are swept under the rug. while the movie mostly focuses on women, they do shine the spotlight on men as well, where I was shocked to learn even more men are raped per year than women. there is something about being a part of the police force and the military that clearly cultivates predators within their ranks, or simply gives past offenders a better environment to work in. this was an eye opening documentary, definitely recommended.

  3. don mclean- american pie

    one of those songs I memorized word for word back when I was in grade six. it’s like a perfect snapshot of the 70’s. it’s a long song, and goes on and on with the verse-chorus stanza, but that’s why it’s epic. freaking magic, i suppose.

    yet another one of those movies I should’ve watched but instead chose to read the plot synopsis years ago. well, I’ve watched it, and fuck do I regret spoiling it for myself. anyways, funny movie with great characters. the movie is essentially a character study of a heroin addict, who unsurprisingly, is written as an anti-hero of sorts. It’s hard to put into words how I feel about the character, considering what he does at the end of the movie, but for the most part of sympathize with him. the music is very 90’s and 80’s, though I loved it, even though I’m not big on music from those periods (i do like new order though, and they’re song should have been played longer and louder, in my opinion). the relationship is also somewhat dodgy, and the scottish accent went over my head, but I’m sure a few more rewatchs will fix that up. oh yeah, and the main lead also played a jedi in the star wars films a few years after this, so that’s a fun thing to think about. a gritty and honest movie, the best kind of movie in my opinion.

  5. ^sword art online II

    this anime is really really bad. I could fill a book with reasons why this anime is bad. this anime makes me lose faith in anime in general. and people wonder why anime has a stigma around it….

  7. ^grand budapest hotel

    a great adventure, though I do have gripes. For one, I thought the first couple of minutes were quite boring; it wasn’t until Adrien Brody called Gustave a “fucking faggot” did I start to enjoy myself. the humor mostly comes from Gustave using crude vernacular, and from outrageous situations, so it definitely isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. if you’re unfamiliar with wes anderson’s directing, watching this movie will be very disorienting. personally, I feel like the style worked better in “mr fantastic fox”; all these wide angle tracking shots kinda get boring after a while. I will probably watch this move again in the future, to try to get a better understanding of the theme, as I was far too absorbed by the plot to give a shit. anyways, with the exception of those still/tracking shots, there were some great direction (especially that museum chase scene) and the sets were beautiful and detailed. this movie is popular on tumblr, at least thats what I’m assuming, as a see a related post on my dash every day, so you may as well watch it so you know what’s going on. afterwards, watch “mr fantastic fox” and “the royal tenenbaums”,both of which are wes anderson films that I actually like better.

  8. ^shawshank redemption

    another mother I can’t believe I hadn’t seen until recently. While I didn’t think the concept was still fresh around the 1:30 hour mark, for the most part the movie takes you in immediately, and the two hours go by quickly. While I don’t think it deserves it’s “greatest movie ever” status as designated by imbd, and it’s a little tame considering how dark it is in its first half, it’s still very thrilling. hopefully you haven’t been spoiled of this movie’s ending (pop culture loves to reference this, bastards >:D), but if you haven’t, you’ve probably already seen this movie

     
  9. ^bladerunner

    so freaaaaking intense, oh man I don’t even know what I just watched, but it feels damn near spiritual. I remember I was so bored by this movie four years ago, but for some reasons now it had me by the balls to the very end. I felt obligated to finish this legendary movie, no regrets at all.

    why yes, that IS  a young alec baldwin!

    anyways, got interested in watching movie adaptations of plays, and this one really struck me by the time it was over; it is fantastic. the dialogue, oh christ, the dialogue! the movie really shows you the stress of having a sales job, which I can relate to, at least to some extent. i worked sales for my tuition, and I know the heartbreak of losing a close sale, or having a sale declined because of the customer’s credit. and I know the amazing joy of getting a clutch sale, so seeing the gravity of the situation through the eyes of an adult who has a family to support was interesting. personally, I wouldn’t make it in the real estate sales world, all I’ve done is sell energy plans, which seems infinitely easier. i don’t think a sales person can make good money unless they mislead the customer, and yes, I did tell half-truths to many of the people I talked to. it’s just the reality of the profession, and you want to go back and make more sales because it is good money. 

    anyways, great fucking movie if you’re okay with swearing.

    still the best thing I’ve seen all year

  12. ^beck: mongolian chop squad

    this turned out to be really solid. the animation, though, is to say the least, unfortunate. it’s pretty shitty, and it angers me to think how the show could’ve turned out if the directing and production values were given priority, but i guess some higher-up didn’t want to take too much of a risk on an anime about music. also, I can’t take the soundtrack seriously, and for a lot of the plot twists you really have to suspend your disbelief. the ending is rushed, and the love triangle was pretty stupid. but that all aside, I enjoyed myself, and I thank the studio behind the show for taking me on such a great adventure.

  14. ^muppets; most wanted

    I found this movie to be hilarious, which was surprising since I got bored of the first recent muppets movie, and most rottentomatoe critics were going on about how it was inferior to its predecessor.

     
  15. finally got around to watching how to train your dragon 2… and it was quite disappointing.

    Okay, obviously the animation was amazing, and the movie itself was well paced, but everything else was pretty “meh”. the story set-up was predictable, yet misleading at the same time. I mean, who didn’t see the death in the movie coming? it was so obvious, and so was the “twist” that the mother was alive. what was misleading was that the conversation between astrid and hiccup felt like there was going to be more development in their relationship, which did not happen. instead, focus was put on hiccup’s mom and stoic, which I felt was boring and not as heartfelt as the writer’s imagined it would be; it has no build-up, so the reveal is pretty weak. the mother herself is a very boring character; usually when they have these sorts of reveals, the missing person would have developed certain quirks due to their absence. If i were to describe her character, it would be that she was devoted to her family and her dragons, which is boring. what a waste of time this character was. also, the villain was disappointingly shallow as well. so what, you lose your arm and that’s why you want to conquer the world? there wasn’t enough screentime to establish his character. he’s an asshole, plain and simple. also, i didn’t find the movie particularly funny. the biggest running joke was the relationship between this really creepy girl and three other dudes. so yeah, more screentime devoted to four pointless side characters, yay. also, what is with animation movies making animals (in this case, a dragon) relatable by having them act like dogs? we get it, dogs are awesome, but it’s getting old. and what happened to the villain’s army? I assume they were ditched for an army of dragons, but what’s going to happen to them? they’re just going to forget about killing everyone? and where the hell did this second alpha dragon come from? everyone’s super shocked to see that another one exists, so I’m going to assume that there isn’t supposed to be another one? so what kind of twist is that? they don’t give us any answers about this dragon’s origins!

    all in all, a very predictable and shallow movie.
