Avengers Infinity War

4/5

Decent flick but thanos plan of killing half the universe is pretty silly bc he wants it done at random.
You rly can't think of a merit based system for this, some kid of metric? lol

It's avengers though so its a great film. Nice seeing thor with the guardians.

What they need to do in part 2 is give a backstory as to why he wanted it done.

They gave the backstory in the first one..

Spoiler: He warned his planet of the impending doom, that they needed to control the population. No one listened to him and the planet was destroyed. Now he is radicalized with his burden of knowledge about what must be done to save all the other planets. This was revealed in the part with the reality stone.

The Night of the Hunter (1955) 8/10

This movie is crazy. It's very memorable. It reminds me of a possible Tim Burton horror film. The lighting and camera work go well with the subject matter. I can't say it's one of my favorite films after a first watch but it's worth watching at least once. It really shows how "love" and "hate" can tear apart a community.

Isle of Dogs (2018) 8/10

I really enjoyed it. The story is simple but the animated scenes are complex. To me I think Wes Anderson and his writing friends work best in the stop-motion animated film world. It can be a bit crazy because it's animated and the dialog is even more funny because it's a puppet (or dog). I do think this movie goes a bit too much with the details and can distract from what needs to be seen and understood in a scene. Also liked that they kept the Japanese language in it.

X-Men: The Last Stand. Since I work in VFX, I enjoy buying VFX films on Blu Ray to study. For my birthday I bought the entire collection and am watching them in release order. I remember that when I first saw X-Men 3, it was easily my favorite, I enjoyed watching mutant fight against mutant in the battle at the end. Today though, the whole scale seems small and a bit silly. Kinda like the final showdown in Twilight.

I, Tonya.

Loved it. It portrayed so well the absurdity of what happened. The characters and acting and the way it was presented was great IMHO.

Lean on Pete 9/10

I really enjoyed watching this movie. It had a good balance between how the scenes were set and how the overall story was just wild. The main character is a teenager and he plays it realistic. He reminds me of some kids I grew up with. It is a sad story but the ending is what ties it up in a nice way. It's one of the few movies where I could hear someone mumbling and still understand them. Props to the sound department or movie theater I was in.

***SPOILERS***
Spoiler: Ok, so if I had my director hat on here are a few things I would have liked to see in the camera department. The camera in the movie is usually a good distance away from Charlie. There are a few close up shots when he is talking with other people and for the most part it was balanced out pretty well. During the later half of the movie Charlie is walking around like a homeless kid. I think it would of been great to have the camera very far away from him showing a wide shot most of the time. It could give the feeling that he is becoming "someone else" and at a distance we don't really recognize him as much. The movie Time Out of Mind (2014) did that very well. When he meets his Aunt the camera could slowly move toward him reminding the audience of who Charlie was from the start of the movie. There is also a moment when his horse is hit. It would of been great to have the camera stay static and not show the horse but we could hear what is going on. Something that M. Night and Hitchcock did well in their movies. I did really like the camera work but I think they could of changed it up a bit more depending on what was happening. There is a lot of things that happen to Charlie in this movie and some of the events could of been textured more with the camera.

Just finished my X-Men marathon with Logan. By far the strongest in the series. Heading on to Mission: Impossible now as I work on a new script.

I recently saw the new Will Ferrell movie ‘Talladega Nights: The ballad of Ricky Bobby’. Hands down the worst piece of garbage Ive ever seen. If you find yourself scrolling through Netflix looking for something to watch avoid this at your peril. 3/10
