Ghostbusters • director Ivan Reitman
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters - an absolute classic and one of my favorite movies. I do truly believe that this is one of the most quotable movies ever made.
Hello peeps! As you probably know, I have done Tustin Art Walk for a few years, and this time I want to do it bigger. Please consider donating to or sharing my kickstarter so I can. Thank you so much!!!
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For • directors Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez
This is the kind of movie I love Robert Rodriguez for, and he excels at it. Visually brilliant, vibrant and gritty - he knows how to tell this story and respect the artists the it originated from. Go see this on the big screen or you will miss out.
I was incredibly sad that Michael Clark Duncan was missing from this film, due to his untimely death. However, Dennis Haysbert does a great job in the role Duncan originated.
I’m not sure why Dwight & Miho were recast in this venture - both actors that stepped into the roles this time out (Josh Brolin & Jamie Chung) were excellent, but I loved Clive Owen as Dwight the first time around, and as great as Brolin was, I still missed Owen.
London • director Hunter Richards
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m slowly working my way through Chris Evans filmography. This week Netflix delivered a film whose synopsis couldn’t be more indie if it tried - London.
Parts of this movie were quite enjoayable - mainly Jason Statham, Chris Evans and any scene that took place in the bathroom at the going away party. What threw me (other than what I can only assume was a really bad wig on Chris Evans), was that despite being a real life couple, Jessica Biel and Chris Evans didn’t seem to be a relatable couple. I’m not sure quite what was missing, but it definitely didn’t feel like they were connecting…at least not nearly as much as Statham and Evans did in their scenes.
Still, this movie is entertaining, and ver nicely, Mr. Statham is able to do more than just punch and shoot.
No creeping doubts? Not feeling persecuted, Dom? Chased around the globe by anonymous corporations and police forces, the way the projections persecute the dreamer? Admit it: you don’t believe in one reality anymore. So choose. Choose to be here. Choose me.Mal ~ Inception • director Christopher Nolan
Under the Skin • director Jonathan Glazer
To be quite honest, I haven’t been able to form a full opinion on this film. It feels completely different than anything I’ve ever watched before. What I can say is that this film is visually stunning and remarkably edited - seriously, things that scream of the talent of the artists that worked on this film. And also, Ms. Johnasson is given the chance to completely create a character from the ground up and her performance is phenomenal.
This movie is not for the faint of heart, and will probably appeal to serious cinefiles only. However, watching this film is not a waste of your time.
