Movies watched in August:
The Mist 3/5
Trees Lounge 3.5/5
Before Sunset 3.5/5
Summer of Sam 2.5/5
The World’s End 2.5/5
The mist surprisingly has the least hollywood ending of all time and it still boggles my mind that the director got away with that cut.
Before Sunset, sunrise are some of my favorite films but i still haven't seen before midnight and that pisses me off
Trees Lounge is like a movie of a tom waits song, Small Change era
Summer of Sam i enjoyed when i saw it but wouldn't watch it again. i am a sucker for john leguizamo though. he's always dapper
World's End i think might have been a better written and executed film that the other movies in his cornelio trilogy but despite that wasn't as enjoyable as shawn of dawn. still pretty good though. i would say 3/5.
I watched Oldboy and Lady Vengence recently and have been on the whole Korean Wave kick of recent. Doomsday Books is one of the best anthology films i've seen in quite awhile, if not ever.
Mr Nobody, would have been a great movie if the idea hadn't already been done multiple times (ie sliding doors, etc)
Bronson and Only god Forgives 5/5 for Bronson, 4/5 for ONly God Forgives. I thought it was better that Drive. Has a sergio Leone feel about it and Jim Jarmusch mixed together. Wide shots, little dialogue, interesting use of colors (perhaps even a little Dario Argento inspired?) slow build to epic moments
