X-Men Days of Future Past-The Review

So Bryan Singers xmen attempt was awesome! It was extremely enjoyable. The mash up of Ratner’s old trilogy and first class’s casts blended seamlessly together. With the standouts being the past casts of the 70’s like Fassbendor, Mccavoy , and of course Hugh Jackman.

Definitely go see the film. It fixes almost all the problems I had with the last film. The best parts of the film were the scenes in the past with First Class’s X-Men. With the future scenes lacking substance and character development the film still fails to hold up as great but is still worth a watch. Overall a 7/10.

Compliance

Compliance is directed by Craig Zobel and stars ann dowd and dreama walker.
Compliance is the almost unbelievable account of a young girl who works at a restaurant. She is put through unspeakable tortures at the hands of her boss and a unknown caller who claims to be a police officer.
Compliance was tough to watch at times. Although the film was technically a good film, but was so damn painful to watch. The acts that the girl is put through made me sick to my stomach.
The most disturbing part of the film is that everything that happens in the film is real and happened to the poor girl.
The acting is superb and hold the film together with tight performances by Ann dowd as the manager, dreama walker.
Compliance is a real study into the mind of people and their real fear of authority. The film reminds me of the Milton experiment and the Stanford prison experiment.
Over all the film is worth a watch if you can handle very disturbing films. I would give compliance a 7/10.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty-Review

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is directed by funny man Ben Stiller. Stiller plays the completely average, every-man,Walter Mitty.

Walter Mitty is the definition of average.He is the negatives receiver at a Time magazine like magazine named Life. Life is closing it’s doors soon and has brought in a big wig boss played by Adam Scott to downsize and usher in the new online online Life magazine.

Walter is put in charge of getting the final cover photo sent in by adventurer and photographer, Sean O’Connell played by Sean Penn. O’Connell is has sent Mitty photos except the one that is important.

The core of the story is about Mitty daydreaming of wild alternative realities , other than his boring life. He has day dreams of rescuing the attractive new co worker Kristen Wiigs an ice climber adventurer. Other day dreams are of him chasing Adam Scott through town on skies,rescuing Wiig’s dog from a burning building and a life with wiig growing old i reverse with wiig as he describes as the Benjamin button thing”

The Secret Life succeeds at being funny while not being a funny movie.This is great because Stiller comes off as sincere and real instead of being off the wall and crazy like he is in his movies normally. One of the quotes from the always great Sean Penn sums up the movie and Walter Mitty’s life”Beautiful things don’t ask for attention”.

I really enjoyed The secret life of Walter Mitty. The acting,humor,and touching story all make the latest outing from Ben Stiller all worth watching. I give Walter Mitty a 7/10. My favorite parts were when Stiller goes looking for Penn and the witty banter between him and Wigg.

My Mvp-Walter Mitty himself , Ben Stiller really lays on the charm.

My Omg moment is when Mitty’s E Harmony online dating consultant throughout the movie. It is none other than Patton Oswalt, one of my favorite comedians. He plays a Cinnabon obsessed online dating consultant who throughout the movie helps Mittty build his online dating profile to be more appealing-justin

We Need to Talk About Kevin

We need to ¬†talk about Kevin is a disturbing look into a mother son relationship gone ary. The film stars Tilda Swintin,John c Riley, and Ezra Millir as Kevin. The story is mixed up straight from the beginning, showing flashbacks mixed into modern day. The mother,Tilda Swinton, seems a bit off and we find out why her and Kevin don’t play nice.

She is a young mother and does not know how to deal with a problem child like Kevin. Kevin screams constantly and makes his mother’s life a living hell. He breaks stuff, throws paint on her walls, and is just difficult to work with. John c Riley is very compliant with Kevin and let’s him do as he will. Everything starts to change when Kevin starts harming the family
The story takes an intense turn and the whole movie is building towards a climax that is quite a game changer for Kevin and his family.
we need to talk about Kevin is great. I recommend it to anyone wanting something different from their films. It is a nice change of pace that will haunt you. 7/10 We need to talk about Kevin is streaming now on Netflix.-Justin
