Interstellar 4/5

I loved a lot of what I saw but I see the flaws. They should of pumped the brakes a bit in the beginning and build the relationships that I was supposed to care for later on in the movie. It just seemed like Nolan was trying to get to space as fast as possible. All the scenes involving space travel and landing on the alien worlds was absolutely fantastic. I was seeing and believing different worlds when they walked on those planets. An entire planet made of water and another with volcanic rock landscape were just awe inspiring to see. Then there is the docking scene later on in the movie which I just was at the edge of my seat the entire time. I don't think that relationship between the father and daughter is the most well developed but then again I think it works well enough to make the scene taking place in the 5th Dimension work. Also, I think the score is probably Hans Zimmer's best just for the fact that I can remember the notes after I saw the movie. I see more good than bad at the end of the day so I'll give it a 4/5. I have to admit though that after it was over and I walked back to my car, I checked out the stars for a bit.

Just saw The Lovers (1958). I just KNOW that DJ couldn't get enough of beautiful Jeanne Moreau in a beautiful sleeveless black dress lifting her beautiful arms to revealing a very unbeautiful patch of armpit hair  ;D

So! During my flight to New Orleans I saw at least a good chunk (not too sure when I slept) of many movies I wanted to give a shot. I expected a lot from none of these but I wanted to be sure and see what had to be taken from them, so a 10 hours flight with free VOD was the perfect opportunity.

x-men: day of the future past - 5.5/10
This is officially my favorite superhero film that goes by the book (that is to say outside the dark knight, watchmen and unbreakable). It's also every well shot for a blockbuster and the script is far from lazy. Still, bad over explaining dialogues and some ridiculous stakes all over the place. The modern days scenes are here to remind you how much superhero films usually suck. A few very good scenes though, such as the full bullet time scene (that convinced me to see the movie).

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - 3.5/10
They slightly corrected the flaws (scenes with humans) and greatly diminished the strengths (scenes with Apes) of the first, an then, they got worst at CGI, which is a huge no go for such a film. Not the worst film ever but absolutely no reason to watch it.

Godzilla - 5/10
Booooring. Every Godzilla entrance is great though. Just watch the trailer. Still, it's very well shot. Long, constructed takes extremely well photographed, on dialogues as well as action sequences. Very mature, great use of light. There is a real director in the place (although no screenwriter).

Jersey Boys - 4/10
Boring and amateurish. Bad acting apart from Walken. I only saw 20 minutes of it but I'm still rating it because I'm just way better than Drinks.

You went to NO and that's the best thing you came up with?

No other scene approached the excellence of that one though, eh? By "modern day scenes" I take it you mean those set in the 70s?

Yeah, that was the best scene by far.

No by modern days I mean those when they're old and their castle is under attack.

I am in NO right now, just having my first breakfast. I'll tell the cool stuff in the appropriate thread ;)

Uh, then wouldn't those be called . . .  Days of the Future (or "future days," or simply, "the future")?

That's a good point. For my defense, I wrote the post after a full night of work followed by a 16 hours trip.

Killer's Kiss (1955) director Stanley Kubric, with Frank Silvera as sleazy dime-a-dance hall owner Vincent Rapallo, Jamie Smith as boxer Davey Gordon, Irene Kane as ballroom taxi dancer Gloria Price and Jerry Jarrett as Albert (the fight manager). Could very well be the quintessential New York Noir, from the opening scenes of the old Pennsylvania Station, the decadence of Times Square to the industrial alleys and rooftops of lower Manhattan, it speaks volumes of what can be accomplished in a short film on a shoe string using real locations, and of the talent of Kubric as a director, writter, cinematographer, and editor.

<spoilers>

The story is basically, a prize fighter falls for the taxi dancer he peeps on from across the air shaft in his apartment house, juxtaposed cuts of him fighting a loosing bout in the ring and her fighting off the advances of her horny boss establish the dynamics of the story. He comes to her rescue after Rapallo accosts Gloria in her apartment, and they hit it off. Exchanging hard luck stories they decide to take a vacation from the city and to travel West to Seattle to a horse farm that Davey's uncle owns.

Davey needs his money from his last fight and Gloria needs her paycheck. They arrange with Davey's manager to meet at the ballroom. All goes hay-wire and the events that propel the story to a memorable conclusion are started in motion.

Definitely on the A-list with another 10/10.

I Wake Up Screaming  (1941)  upping this to an 8/10 upon a re-watch noticed how effective the score was this go round.

from IMDb: Michael Coy

Music is used effectively throughout. "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" (the hit from the recent 'Wizard Of Oz') is Frankie and Jill's love theme. Vicky's signature tune is a wonderfully decadent jazz melody
(Street Scene), brassily scored. Plot points are nicely underlined by discords in the incidental music, and during Cornell's final speech, Vicky's theme is reprised with great poignance and beauty on a muted trumpet.

I should definitely re-watch it now.

10/10 seems extremely high for Killer's Kiss.
