May 31st: The Shining (Kubrick Week Day 6)


Release Date: 1980

Very well shot and acted, and with great set design. I’m just unsure what to get out of it by the end.



May 30th: Barry Lyndon (Kubrick Week Day 5)


Release Date: 1975

Not bad at all. I understand the theme of luck in the film and that it was meant to depict most of this man’s life, but it was not easy to sit through the long running time.


Kubrick Week (May 26th-June 1st)


This week, I will be looking at the iconic films directed by legendary film director Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999) has created some of the most memorable and technically innovative films in film history, despite only winning one Academy Award all his life (for Special Effects on “2001: A Space Odyssey”). “Dr. Strangelove” being the only Kubrick film I have seen in whole, I will be watching the following this week:

The Killing
2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Barry Lyndon
The Shining
Full Metal Jacket

May 24th: Fast & Furious 6


Release Date: 2013
Director: Justin Lin
Why I picked this: Well, it should be fun.

Absurd, but fun and satisfying. Just don’t expect the dialogue to be deep or the physics to be realistic.

Favorite (Yeah, sue me.)
