Please tell me it was a Bollywood movie version of the video game Doom 3, because I would totally watch that.

10.10 probably one of the best movies I have seen in a long time..
The acting by Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey‎ was just on point and incredibly moving..

12 Years a Slave
One of the most devastating movies I've seen in a long time. Gut wrenching story, amazing acting across the board (especially from Ejiofor and Nyong'o) and gorgeous cinematography. I rarely cry during movies but I literally had tears rolling down my cheeks toward this end of this. A movie this brutal is not something everybody will want to see, but it's something everybody should see. 10/10

James Bond & Doctor No. Those old Bonds are way more hilarious than those new ones.

i defiantly think that 12 Years a Slave will sweep the awards season....and that it very much deserves it

that being said....i finally saw what is very likely my favorite film of 2013 (keep in mind i won't see Inside Llewyn Davis or Her until next week....and although i am positive that i will love both)

i just don't think they will register in me the same way as the brilliant simplicity of....


Nebraska

first and foremost if you can see this in a theater....do....there really is something to be said about modern...well really all black and white films on the big screen....but the modern stuff is just amazing....so clean and beautiful

this movie is hilarious....from the opening shot to the endearing end....this movie will make you laugh for all the right reasons

there is literally a scene in this film which i have lived through almost verbatim

the ENTIRE cast is perfect.....not a bad role in the entire film

did i mention that the filming itself is breathtaking?....i honestly think that black and white and the midwest should always go hand in hand

also

ok unlike Janszoon....i almost always cry at movies....that commercial where the Irish Wolf Hound greats her owner who just got back from war.....or the one where the little girl paints the Great Dane's nails.....each make me cry on the spot....i have to leave the room when a god damn SPCA commercial comes on

that being said....i made it 9m22s in this one before i started streaming tears....by the end....Niagara Falls



at the 9m22s mark....PL Travers says something along the lines of "i just can't let her go" and is referring to her books Mary Poppins....this gets to me on more levels than i'd like to express

overall the film is very fun, very serious, and in all honesty very well done

Hanks plays Disney...well like Hanks playing Disney

Thompson plays Travers remarkably well

the real gem in this film is a small part played by Paul Giamatti

i love Mary Poppins....and i can honestly say that i am very happy that movie was made

seeing this was just amazing and surprising....plus it's nice to see the Disney company make a movie that shows Walt for what he was.....a flawed but lovable business man

Her

A week ago I thought I saw my film of the year. Inside Llewyn Davis was a bleak and ultimately devastating story about a folk singer who can never catch a break. It was soulful and moving and really just hit me in a way that no other film this year hit me. “Her” is the complete opposite. It is soulful and devastating but in the complete opposite direction. They are my ying and yang picks for films of the year.

I’ve been a fan of Spike Jonze since seeing him wear granny make-up and swing his boobs around in “Jackass”. His music videos are some of the most memorable videos of the late 90′s and early 2000′s and his films are visceral experiences that are unique and one of a kind. This time, Jonze puts his pen to the paper and crafts not only the best screenplay of the year, but one of the most intimate and personal films I’ve ever seen. The film stars Theodore, a lonely recently divorced man who is seeking a friend. Theodore walks past a kiosk advertising a new operating system which developing intelligence and personality. The operating that Theodore purchases is named Samantha and is voiced by Scarlett Johansson. The film takes place in an obvious future world but instead of being a dystopian nightmare, the future we see is vibrant and colorful. Social media seems to have evolved into a living breathing entity and everybody walks about with ear pieces in their ears which reads them the news, emails, or just converses with their user. This is really all you should know plot wise as the film grips you and takes you on the ride. Two hours never flew by so fast.

Having some relationship issues of my own at the moment, the film spoke to me. It’s premise is ultimately a very strange one. A man falling in love with a computer? How silly. Is it really that silly? Who is to say that a person can’t have a connection with somebody who is not there physically. I know it is usually frowned upon, but long distance relationships do work in small amounts. Those relationships are kept through phone conversations, letters, and recently with the ability of video conversations. I know people who have gotten married after meeting on the internet. I know people who have had extensive relationships with people miles away. Samantha may be a voice of a computer but in this world, that voice has a mind and personality that only builds more and more every day.

Spike Jonze created a perfect screenplay here. It is nearly flawless in its pacing and immersing in its intimacy. I don’t know what is going on in the mans life but he wrote from the heart and it showed. The whole film radiates red like it’s the center of a beating heart. I’m not usually a huge romance fan. I have been slowly integrating and finding wonderful films of this genre and am really warming up to the idea that romance films can not only be made well, but be considered important pieces of art. Jonze created a piece of art that is directly linked to the heart. Whether we have had many or only a few relationships, we each have gone through life changing events with another person. These events and the time we spend with somebody builds our character. They make us into the people we will eventually become. This is the main theme of Her. The relationships we have with other people, whether they end badly or flourish, create the people we turn into and help us learn from our mistakes until the next person comes along. I just can’t write enough how touched and moved I was with this film after this year. I have regretted more things than I can count. I wish I could change things. I wish there were some way to do things different. This is no way though. Those things happened and it’s only up to me to make sure that the future is made with all the love and happiness I experienced along the way. That is human nature. We push on and try to maintain happiness. The film just reiterated to me that everything is going to be okay.

I’m sorry I got a little personal there. It just it me hard.

The aesthetics of the film should also be noted. It’s a gorgeous film. Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema should honestly win all the awards for this. As I stated before the film just radiates red which only goes to further the emotions thrown at us by the cast. Geez I haven’t even mentioned the cast. Scarlett Johansson could actually be nominated for a supporting role in which she doesn’t appear on screen in any way. She was that good. It was just a voice but it represented one half of a completely real and touching relationship with co-star Joaquin Phoenix who was incredible as always. Phoenix, who appears in nearly every single scene dominates as a lonely man who finally finds love after going through a difficult and draining divorce. Amy Adams, who really can’t do anything wrong recently, rounds out the trio by giving a heartwarming performance as Theodores friend and neighbor. It’s a film full of just amazing everything.

Go see this film. Take your girlfriend. Take somebody who is going through a rough time or recently lost somebody they love. It is a smart, funny, and incredibly real science fiction film that produces such honest and earned emotional response. Some people won’t get past the premise, but the people who have experienced loss in their lives are going to feel amazing at the fact that we still have so much to gain and learn. It’s my top film of the year along with “Inside Llewyn Davis”

5/5

Damn it, Exo. I wanna see that movie so bad I didn't even read more than a few sentences of your post, but I'm glad to see it's good if nothing else.
