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.
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.
Release Date: 1971
Twisted and thought-provoking.
Release Date: 1968
Technically brilliant, but I’d be lying if I said that I understood all of it.
Release Date: 1960
A very long epic; some of the fat could have been trimmed, in my opinion.
Release Date: 1956
I liked the narrative structure, but it was lacking in character; the ending was very abrupt as well.
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:
2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Full Metal Jacket
Release Date: 2005
Director: Woody Allen
Why I picked this: Recommended Woody Allen film by a friend
Very well crafted, and I loved the themes of the movie. It was just a little joyless.
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.)
Release Date: 2012
Director: Drew Goddard
Why I picked this: Watching it with friends; also, the premise is intriguing
Very clever satire of horror. Still, I wish some elements of the plot were revealed later in the movie instead, and I dislike the ending.
