True Grit Review

Well, I've been anticipating this movie for a pretty long while. Coen brothers with Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin and Matt Damon with Roger Deakins cinematography so I was excited as a masochist who had just been arrested by the Spanish Inquisition

Any way, to sum it up it felt like a Coen Brother film for young adults instead of adults. Its actually the least gritty of their dramas compared to No country, blood simple and fargo.

                                                                           Real True Grit

Anyway the highlights of other coen brothers films are usually the secondary characters and that was a little lacking in this movie except for the bear suit man who was pretty awesome

I hope you brought your rape whistle

The acting however was good from everyone on the main cast, especially Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges, it just never kept me in suspense like other Coen movies.
Rating : 7/10

Taxi Driver Review

Taxi Driver, I cant remember this movie too much because I was falling in and out of sleep half the time I was watching it but I think I watched the most important parts. Basically Travis Bickel (played by Rober De Niro) is a lonely cab driver. Being the only white cab driver in all of New york he didnt have many chances to make friends so he began watching a lot of porn. After this my memory goes blank but I remember a little later he gets this cool haircut and tries to kill some guy, your typical scorsese film. I suggest you check out some of De Niros more recent roles like in Meet The Parents and Meet The Fockers, atleast theyre funny.

Inception review

Inception is definitely the best Christopher Nolan movie since The Dark Knight. Leonardo DiCaprio plays a guy who can invade other peoples dreams and steal shit. Joseph gordon-levitt wears suits, alan page is as useless as she is in every other one of her movies also michael caine has less screentime in this movie than the joker will have in the next batman movie. some people thought this movie was complex but it really wasnt, it was pretty much the prequel to the matrix. The dream machine in this movie is just like the prototype for what the machines will use to control people in The Matrix. anyway I give this movie 8,5 stars out of 10 for being very loud.

Black Swan Review

So I got back from the movies with Colin, we just watched Black Swan.Unfortunately, the ticket guy gave us tickets for the french version and been as the only french word I know is burrito, I didnt understand shit. The most I could make of it was that it was some kind of R&B film and it played out like Inception but with ballerinas. I didnt really understand what was going on but atleast there was some cool dancing. It will definitely win the Academy Award for best lesbian sex scene involving jews though.


Tron Legacy Review

Nick and I went to see Tron Legacy but we were so high that we could not in any way understand what the hell was going on in this movie. Therefore, our review cannot be unbiased by atmospheric conditions. I give this movie 1 and a half star out of 5. Jeff Bridges face was not even real.
