Noah (2014)

Noah (2014)
Review: Noah
2.5/4 stars

Director Darren Aronofsky's undeniably controversial and polarizing yet richly thematic and grandiose telling of Noah's Ark has its wondrous moments presented in a fairly good and thoroughly watchable first two acts, but is soon burnt to dust in its third act once things get tedious and sluggish and ultimately fail to provide an ounce of emotional...

Kick-Ass 2 Review comment

 

So many reviews seem to agree with your view - it just doesn't have that same spark of comedy and violence - getting a big too dark (though, to be fair, the graphic novel was much darker too). I still want to see this, but my expectations have been thoroughly tempered.

Great review - I have much more faith in this movie now. And now I know to stay until the real end of the film... groovy.

Oz the Great and Powerful Review comment

 

After watching the regular version - I have to admit I think the 3D probably works out remarkably well for this film. I don't know if it would have swayed my opinion any more, but it's a film worthy of 3D. I agree with the cast have a lack of energy - one of the main reasons I couldn't rate it any higher than I did. Loved the look of the film, though.

Seven Psychopaths Review comment

 

While his first film, "In Bruges" was black, fresh, and funny--Martin McDonagh's follow up comedy crime caper is a bit of a misfire. The compellingly named "Seven Psychopaths" feels as though it is trying a little too hard. Notwithstanding, there are some good things about the film, it is essentially a brain-teaser that is ultra black, with a gee-wizz cast and a schlock of set ups that work in varying degrees."Seven Psychopaths", a self-reflexive black comedy where the main punchline is that its script is being written before our very eyes. An alcoholic writer with limited imagination, Marty (Colin Farrell) spends more time slumming with hyper pal Billy (Sam Rockwell) than he does tending to his own professional woes. Stuck trying to pen a screenplay called "Seven Psychopaths", Marty finds himself caught up in Billy's mess, when the latter and his associate Hans (Christopher Walken) are fingered for kidnapping the dog of ruthless mobster Charlie (Woody Harrelson). Forced to flee with the pooch in tow, Marty finds a surprising amount of inspiration in being hunted, especially given that his company, Hans and Billy, may themselves also be psychopaths. The entire film is centered around the kidnapping of Bonny, a shih-tzu belonging to chief mobster Charlie (Woody Harrelson), and here's where all hell breaks loose. The violent nature of Charlie, usually involving shooting anyone he encounters without remorse--trails the trio of Marty, Billy and Hans, inflicting collateral damage as he gets closer to retrieving his dog. The conversations between characters are in rapid fire--containing a wealth of information, anecdotes, and heavy on the black comedy. McDonagh has a mastery of dialogue, a streak of outrageousness and the power to surprise, and these attributes buoy the early part of the film, and keep the rest of it from degenerating entirely. The cast is rich in recognizable names, and that transfers smoothly into the quality of acting. This time Colin Farrell is the straight man for McDonagh (he was the opposite in "In Bruges") and it's just the performance the Irishman needed to deliver after the summer's lethargic "Total Recall" rehash. Rockwell and Walken are of tremendous value as the canine thieves--Walken bringing his turn down to a Zen whisper, while Rockwell is entertaining as hyperactively playful, despite his murderous tendencies lying just below the surface. Where "Seven Psychopaths" begins to unravel and lose it's way is in the third act. For the first two acts, the film is wild, exhilarating and just plain fun. The promising beginning and set-up give way to a meandering film that takes a long time to go nowhere. The space between laughs becomes greater, and twists and turns become increasingly puzzling and extraneous. The last act slows down and the tone of the film is thrown off entirely--and rather suddenly, the film ventures out of dark comedy and into the realm of something else entirely. Instead of expanding, "Seven Psychopaths" contracts, becoming less outrageous-even as it reveals itself as trivial. The filmmaker's ambition gets the better of him as the number of subplots begins to rival the body count. Despite promising more than it can deliver, "Seven Psychopaths" still boasts a handful of funny, finely-staged sequences that attest to McDonagh's talent and vision.

Flight (2012) Review comment

 

Despite an Oscar worthy performance by Denzel Washington, the films too heavy-handed, redundant, and never quite takes full flight. The title of the film is deceiving in that it is more so about the descend (in more ways than one), and the resilience of the human spirit. For the first half-hour or so, "Flight" keeps us rapt with thrilling action and a troubling moral quandary. You strap yourself in for the next two hours and prepare to give yourself over to the in-flight entertainment. But after "Flight" descends from its high-wire act, the film reshapes itself into a fairly standard story about substance abuse, and the life-long endeavor of maintaining sobriety. Not incredibly entertaining or consistently compelling, but Denzel's Oscar worthy performance alone makes this worth the watch. Denzel does a perfect job giving us just enough to empathize for him but never enough of a reason to condone him either. To Robert Zemeckis credit, he directs a well-crafted film, loosely based on actual events. An interesting character study of a flawed hero we sympathize with throughout despite reoccurring disappointments. This flight reaches it's destination, but I don't think I want to get the round trip. For additional reviews visit: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/member/Nesbitt10
