on The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
Nowhere as superior and meaningful as the first movie but the action and thrills made up for it.
on Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
The character of the monster is more compelling here than in Frankenstein, especially in that he actually has fundamental human desires of his own instead of acting in a purely instinctual manner. On the technical side of things, Bride of Frankenstein knocks it up several notches from the first film, sporting some seriously impressive special effects. Another high point is Ernest Thesiger's hilariously campy turn as Dr. Pretorius.
on Sin City (2005)
Thank God I'm not the only person in the world who detests this film. Very ugly and unpleasant
on The Girl Next Door (2004)
Puerile escapism with overt misogyny that is meant to be ironic but feels offensive. This film is disingenuous as it subtly examines the potential damage of the adult film industry whilst exploiting its titillating nature. Frequently employs a technique of annoying fantasy sequences that add little characterization. Hirsch is awkwardly likable, Cuthbert is appropriately desirable, and Olyphant embodies rampant douchebaggery, but the film itself is very lean.
on Teeth (2007)
It's ok, but coulda been much better. It's too unfocused, and it has pacing/timing problems galore.
on Funny People (2009)
I have to say it hit me. It is a good movie, sincere most of all, really funny too, but it did hit me beyond that.
on A Beautiful Mind (2001)
A beautiful movie. But also a bit terrible and very sad. Crowe is excellent in this one, he really is.
on Se7en (1995)
David Finchers Masterpiece and Brad Pitts best role ever.
on American Gangster (2007)
Somewhat muddled pacing (I watched the theatrical version, not the director's cut) and not terribly original, but an entertaining watch. It feels a bit like Ridley Scott is doing his best Scorsese impersonation. Denzel Washington's presence is compelling and charismatic as always, while Russell Crowe is as bland and boring as ever.
