Christine (2016) - 9/10
Having knowledge of how the movie would end, being based on real events did not lessen its impact at all. I remember feeling short of breath due to anticipation as the climax slowly unfolded, which was immediately followed by a powerfully somber ending. Despite a few inaccuracies it still offered a powerful commentary on depression and how it could affect a person.
Trainspotting. 9/10. It's quite a disturbing depiction of the drug scene in 1990s Britain. It's not for the faint of heart, so I'd give you fair warning. And Begbie will scare the living shit outta you
Beautiful animation, fantastic action sequences, clever ties into the previous installations into the Batman franchise, and a few scenes that had some genuine emotion to them. That was offset by a super flimsy plot, some main characters who felt more like tools to advance Batman's story than individual characters on their own, and some weird additions in the final third that felt like a mish-mash of weird expositional devices and ex machinas building towards a disappointingly unimaginative ending.
It was a good movie, don't get me wrong, and worth an hour and a half of your life, but set your expectations appropriately. In this regard, my brother's remarks as we left the theater summed it up nicely.
It was alright, not my favorite but not the worst movie I've seen, I only really watched it for the first time today because John Travolta was in it. I've seen movies with a similar plot that are better than this one though.
No, not Precious Pupp like in my username and avatar. Precious, the movie about a woman with a shitty life who lifts her head up high despite her upbringing. This would have been a great movie to watch in the comfort of my own home since it looked and sounded interesting. Instead, I was forced to watch it with a bad toothache in a Panamanian dentist's office (what was funny was that the Spanish subtitles were watered down compared to the F-bombs dropped during the movie). Not something that was exactly helpful to how my tooth felt. Then again, I've been through worse.
Watching the movie itself once my toothache was fixed and I was at home, it is a sobering reminder of what some people go through in life. Her life was complete shit, but she was able to turn things around on her own. Then ending wasn't what you call a traditional "happy ending," but it did end on a somewhat good note. Great movie. Had me in tears a lot of the times.
