Also II, only at 23 years old I'm realizing how terrible I think John Cusack is as an actor.
My second favorite movie of the year, losing only to Before Midnight. Amazing movie. Not as perfect as A Separation because... well, that movie was nearly flawless, but amazing nonetheless.
I watched The Hunt with a friend of mine and we both thought it was way too over-the-top, but most people seem to really like that movie so yeah, good for the movie
Woah EITS did the score? D:
I want to watch it so much more now
It's funny how he thinks his talent lies in writing. I really wanna see him direct someone else's script.
Yeah, and I liked that final scene; one of my favorite things in the movie. I just think that, although I understand how the movie focuses on the extravagance instead on the actual development of the story ( which is almost always left in the background ), it didn't quite work for me, making almost every character one-dimensional or borderline cliché.
I think we're both agreeing on both our takes man
there's been much comparison made lately between american hustle and the wolf of wall street. this is for good reason. the scorsese film has come under immense fire from those who either a) did not like its penchant for nudity, drugs and general depravity or b) did not like it because they felt it glorifies its main character. but what these people are missing is the essential understanding that the film is not advocating jordan belfort in the slightest. it actually thinks he's ridiculous and horrible (martin scorsese practically feels like he's poking his head out after each scene and saying "can you believe these assholes?"). the "problem" with wolf, is that it has the gall to recognize our society's complicity with this behavior and all the ways we help in propitiating these monsters and con artists by giving them a pass or maybe even worshiping them. it's not that the film doesn't punish belfort. it's that we don't. we let our heroes ride the subway while belfort laughs all the way to the bank. scorsese is just showering us with the cosmic ridiculousness of all this. and we don't like that. we like our movies to punish bad guys because we don't do it in real life. we want the indulgence. we want the unrepentant con artists to pay, dammit!... well, except when our movies tell us to like them. because american hustle is a movie that worships the con artist. and unsurprisingly, people love it. but that's the thing about movies and society: people like to be indulged, not punished.
I never really thought much of McConaughy as an actor
I think the movie focus on its style of exaggeration and grandeur, while mixing it with the euphoria of DiCaprio's character, and that's the only innovative thing in the movie. It feels like the movie's self-aware of that thing, so it keeps on focusing on it. The story of the movie's nothing new, and there's nothing much to say because it's a simple rise and fall thing. In the beginning, there's more development, because you have to have some explanation and you have to set the basis of the movie. Everything from there on is just focused on that style that the movie has set.
It's the main thing that deserves praise, followed by the acting and the editing, that fitted the mood of the movie. Everything else in the movie is simply unoriginal, mainly because there's nothing new you can bring to that type of story. But since the style works and it's cool, everyone's losing their shit over The Wolf Of Wall Street, and I sincerely think it's not that great.
yeah, it's a little odd. it has to be about 'how a non-american, non-mainstream film changed my perspective on what cinema can be'
BAFTA won't go to Hustle because 12YAS and Gravity have more of a connection to Britain.
And it's AMERICAN Hustle
American Hustle also isn't awards-good.
Yup. I don't like him in person either. He's a slimy dweeb.
Bale got it for getting fat. Bet the other couldn't get fat, pussies
I just can't believe that anyone in the universe thought that Christian Bale in American Hustle was better than Oscar Isaac in ILD (or Joaquin Phoenix in Her or Michael B. Jordan in Fruitvale Station, for that matter).
Just watched 12 Years A Slave.
I think it's time for me & Steve McQueen to go our separate ways as that's me 0/3 for him now. He's just someone whose films I will never go beyond appreciating for existing.
Inside Llewyn Davis and Her were both really good. I loved the soundtracks in both. I think Karen O has a decent shot at the Oscar for her song in Her.
Oscar Isaac was subtly brilliant I thought. There was something about his character which seemed so endearing even though he was kind of a dick sometimes. I'm surprised he didn't get more award noms although I guess his performance wasn't really over the top and dramatic.
30 minutes in Prisoners and feeling sick to the bottom of my stomach.
Dallas Buyers Club
McConaughey & Leto = Beautiful

Maybe they got it wrong ?
