The Canyons review

Posted : 7 years, 2 months ago on 6 July 2015 12:01 (A review of The Canyons)

Badly acted, badly written, badly shot and badly edited. I watched it because I thought it might have some aesthetic atmospheric quality but it does not. I like Lindsay Lohan but she is sleepy eyed and raspy voiced through out. The cast did not have any chemistry. There is literally no reason to watch this unless you actually get some enjoyment out of films which are horribly put together.

Palme review

Posted : 8 years, 4 months ago on 22 May 2014 08:55 (A review of Palme)

I am not one for historical-political documentaries but this was very, very well done. Going into it I was like do I really care about some rich while male politician and all the political bullshit and ugh the boredom that will surely begin. But I was wrong. The film doesn't just cover Palme's life (a man who in contrast to US politicians seemed to legitimately stand for what he believed) but the history of his time period: The assassinations of Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, Vietnam, Chile, social change, the works. It was fascinating to watch the world literally changing before your eyes and very informative.
The movie starts with Palme in an interview saying he believes his goal and the purpose of politics is to make life on earth decent for people. Having a movie start by echoing your own closely held beliefs is a pretty good sign.
Palme was anti-racism, pro-immigrant, absolutely anti-violence and he fought for peace. He was a charismatic socialist known for getting himself involved in one too many issues.
It's a bit ironic that they had Desmond Tutu in the documentary- a man who's famously said that to be neutral in times of oppression is to side with the oppressors.
The movie comments that Palme was very much hated by a great many but doesn't delve too deeply into the justification for such hate, simply passing it off as a fad to hate the prime minister. The part where the sons are talking about how their classmates told them they hoped their father would die was quite horrible. But the most shocking was definitely the images from the US bombing Vietnam.
I wondered over the ending for a little but I understand it now as him saying that no matter how prejudice is couched in intellectual theory or ideology, prejudice is prejudice is prejudice.
It was a very good movie.

Coffee Town review

Posted : 9 years, 2 months ago on 11 July 2013 11:09 (A review of Coffee Town)

The comedy was very good but the other parts of it- when it tried to be serious- were kind of mundane. I would recommend watching it for some of the clever jokes, not the storyline or the characters.

The Proposal
The Proposal sets up a great premise but it’s undone by its childish shallowness. Rather than properly developing their love, which is kind of the whole basis of the engaged before love trope, it’s made into insta-love. The lead male literally declares that his deep loathing turned into love because of a single kiss and a few words. They could have made her character be cold and aloof, without her being cruel, insulting and selfish. But that’s what they chose, and then that all’s supposed to be forgotten because she’s also human. Monsters are human. The cruel are human. There is just no genuine logic or intelligence to the script. Even his family’s interpretation that she left him at the alter because she loved him is a leap. If you want to watch the engaged before love trope, it’s carried out much better in the Turkish show Sen Kal Capimi (although you may want to consider it wrapped at episode 12). What makes this movie worth watching is the charisma of the actors.

Persuasion
Persuasion: I can understand why so many people dislike this movie. I’ve never read the book but I can tell at the least that it is a very “modern” period drama. The costumes, mannerisms, and speech are not in line with the era. It doesn’t have the same romantic class or charm most period dramas have. I have to say I did enjoy the semi A Series of Unfortunate Events vibe in the beginning and her breaking the fourth wall. It was a cute dynamic. In general, I’m not a fan of Dakota Johnson’s acting. But the actor they cast for Wentworth had the absolutely most perfect puppy dog forelorn expressions. His edible expressions are the best part of the movie. The movie was also a lot of tell, not show. Everyone tells us how wonderful Anne is, even strangers who have just met her x). She never went to see her hurt friend? Okay. There are also just little annoying plot holes where you’re not sure if he’s heard what she’s said about him or not. I mean she tells one of his colleagues she’s felt sad for 8 years and he never hears of it?? The breaking of the fourth wall was too much in the end, too constant, to the extent it took you out of the story. Also the love story was wrapped up way too quickly, considering he was with another woman for most of the movie. The sudden nothing is what you thought wrap up was very cheap. His being romantic with her friend while having feelings for her was also a crappy thing to do to her friend. It just feels very meh in the end to watch two people not able to communicate their feelings, almost fall in love with others, and then decide at the last second to get together. It’s not exactly peak romance. Her character is framed as so strong and amazing but there’s a cliched weakness in her inability to tell him how she feels and just lay it out there. I’m honestly tired of characters who can’t openly communicate and then the whole plot is based on that. I also honestly just couldn’t stand how she would talk about her feelings about him so obviously and in front of him but not too him and with seeming no awareness of what he would understand. It gave me so much second hand cringe.

Emma.
Beautifully done movie. Well acted. The love story was very rushed though and didn’t seem to do the characters they’d set up justice. Would’ve been better as a short series.

The Hating Game
Hollywood doesn’t make good rom coms anymore so this is a rare treat. The way she and the writers treated the secondary guy was super awful but otherwise a nice movie.

Josephine Langford
Josephine Langford really looks like Eliza Taylor land a bit like Amber Heard. And honestly like Lili Reinhart as well. Hollywood is just hiring the same face over and over.

Children Ruin Everything
I adore this show. It’s special. With a title like “Children Ruin Everything” you’d expect a run to the bottom for drama’s sake show alla Shameless. But it doesn’t. It shows trials and tribulations but always balances that out with joy and genuine intimacy. In a world where shows portray only the chase of love as worth the viewer’s time, this show shows the joy of actually having love. It portrays a couple who are actually partners facing problems together, rather than breaking up the moment they get together or have to face anything. Ugh I love them. And it really highlights what’s wrong with the rest of TV.

Someone Great
This movie encapsulates the feeling of heart break. Fuck. Made my chest ache. So well acted. And that breakup speech near the end made me cry like a baby. Could've used a little better editing. And some part of me wants more info on why their relationship ended and wants to fight it but there you go.
