Gimme Shelter

A great documentary about one of the ugliest, most saddening rock shows in history (the Altamont Free Concert, if you're wondering). It felt kind of appropriate to watch it now.

I've read about that concert beforehand. It's one of the music industry's biggest mistakes.

Arrival

A goddamn amazing movie, I can't put too fine a point on it. It starts out sort of like a modern version of Close Encounters or Contact, but then it makes a huge turn into something completely different, and all the better for it. And it's not just an intelligent story, but a pretty affecting one, too. I was tearing up a little bit in the end scene. That and the sound and visuals are great for something made on a relatively low budget.

Basically, Arrival did everything for me that Interstellar didn't do. Still, it's a great film all by itself, so go see it for that.

Oh man, Arrival is just the bees knees.

 

I don't think it was perfect, it definitely had some moments where it sort of lost its way, but the high points just so far outweigh the negatives. I think it absolutely nails what it was going for as far as the message, along with some of the most genuinely engrossing science in a sci-fi movie I've seen in a long long time. Great ideas, imagination and theme, with clearly inspired directing and performances.

Wreck It Ralph

I haven't seen this movie in a long time, but I think it's better than I remember. All of the references are great (I especially liked the MGS alert one lol) and, I dunno, there's a lot of things I loved about it. The part where Ralph wrecks (haha) Vanellope's kart made me cry like a pussy

The 1993 version of Of Mice and Men was pretty good. Ending was anti-climatic as hell, though.

Oh and I happened to catch Children Who Chase Lost Voices on Toonami a week ago. That was pretty awesome as well.

Edge of Seventeen 

the movie was kind of stupid but it was at least very entertaining and that's all that matters. If you liked Watamote it's the same type of humor

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

This was thoroughly entertaining. It's a different kind of story compared to Harry Potter but it's got much of the same magic going on. (Both literally and otherwise) I will say it's a tad overstuffed and a bit on the long side, but I still think it was great overall. Eddie Redmayne's performance as Newt Scamander was very charming too. Looking forward to the sequels.

Crash

This is just one of those movies that just gets to me every time. If anything it's more timely than ever with its themes of race and how people perceive each other.

Dr. Strange

Higher up on my favorites of the MCU movies. The lame Adelle/Beyonce/etc. type jokes that typify these movies would have completely turned me off if not for the fact they were clearly going for a House M.D. vibe. The opening with the Ancient One is the only scene that felt completely unnecessary and I really hope this gets a sequel since it's easily the most imaginative movie in the franchise outside of the Thor films.

Arrival

What a great, thought-provoking movie. I loved just about everything about it. It kind of reminded me of that Star Trek episode "The Inner Light" on a much larger scale.

I saw Doctor Strange tonight.

Honestly it was just okay. The writing kinda fell flat for me in places and even some of the special effects weren't as mindblowing as I thought they would be. They were still inventive and clearly had a lot of thought and effort put into them, and it's not like I hated the movie or anything. I'm sure if I watch it again at a later date I'll appreciate it a bit more.

It's still miles ahead of Thor 2, because fuck that movie.

Oh my gosh this was incredible! Everything was fantastic from the animation, to the songs and the characters, and the STORY! (holy crap the story)
I think this might be Disney's best animated feature in years, they really outdid themselves with this one.

Hard Boiled

I don't like Face/Off or Broken Arrow but holy shit, this is grade-A action, mate. Now I have to watch all of John Woo's early Chinese films. This beautiful, tightly-edited shootout right here... IT'S THE OPENING FUCKING SCENE!
