Seems like a wasted opportunity. It has some good moments and conversations but I am not sure Segel is a great choice to play David Foster Wallace.
Boy does this look great. Odd to say about a film with a ton of violence, death and guns. Still, so many shots are of amazing vistas, beaches, forests and breath-taking mountains in South America. Story is fine too, the set pieces are good and the characters are interesting in a film that shows us yet again why we should STICK TO THE DAMN PLAN!
I loved this movie, Spike Lee’s best in years. It is funny, tightly told, horrifying at times and tells a fascinating story that cannot be more relevant for our times as the closing scenes remind us. The actors do a great job and it also has a great music score. The story is about Ron Stallworth, the only black detective in Colorado Springs in 1970 something, who along with a Jewish detective join the KKK undercover! A crazy but true story.
This is one of those I am predisposed to liking, British AND Agatha Christie’s Poirot character. Then we have cool setting, snow, train and a story that I’ve always liked. So, I enjoyed it even if I think that Mr. Branagh is not the best embodiment of Poirot.
Apparently he filmed it on an iPhone. No wonder it looked so crappy and everyone except for the Claire Foy seems to know that they are in a movie. It’s not a great entry by Soderbergh. A low budget movie filmed mostly on an iPhone can be excellent, example is Tangerine. This one is not.
A group of friends have been playing a game of tag for 30 years. It’s based on a true story. It’s fun and the characters are all likable played by funny people. The most entertaining part is the running gag that becomes the main theme of the movie; everyone wants to tag Jerry (Jeremy Renner) who is about to get married.
Weird but not very clear as to what it is trying to accomplish. This was a disappointing follow-up to Nightcrawler.
