Whiplash.



Possibly the most compelling music related film I've ever seen. Absolutely stellar acting from J.K. Simmons and lead role Miles Teller does a damn good job too. Very low budget, very simple premise, very little advertising, just an immaculately well made film about a musician's pursuit of excellence and a mentor's determination to create a prodigy. It's not a wide release so you may have a hard time finding a nearby theater showing it.

Into the Wild.

One of my favorites if not my favorite after first viewing. The Hal Holbrook scenes in particular killed me.

Rope by Alfred Hitchcock
This is one of the Hitchcock films I hadn't gotten around to watching, but it was really excellent.

Interstellar

I loved it. The acting and visuals were astounding. A few lapses in the dialogue where I rolled my eyes, but apart from that I thought the plot was great. It progressively got better as the film went along and had great pacing, which made me like it even more. I had something unmanly in my eyes at the end of the film, if we're being honest here.

The Interview

I wanted to witness this film in a small independent cinema a few miles away from my place, but I opted to rent it on Xbox. Way cheaper, and I decide how much butter goes in my popcorn. As for the movie, I enjoyed it, but just a dreading sense of disappointment looms in the air. James Franco, I honestly believe ruins some of this movie. He's more obnoxious than he is funny, and most of his gags are misses. He overacts the entire movie. If his character were a tad more subdued, and his improv more on point, he would've nailed this role. Oh well, he made me laugh hysterically once. As for Rogen and the N. Korean actor who played Un, they did fine in my opinion. I enjoyed how it ended up this quasi-action film towards the end, reminded me of Pineapple Express. As for Kim Jong Un's death, don't even get me started on how amazing that scene was, and the song playing during all of it, just fucking priceless.

All In All, I'd see it if I were you, but don't expect the satire of the century. The immediate question I asked after was "This was what all the hype was about? Dear God."

It's my American duty to avoid terrible films.
