The Informant!

Didn't expect the way the movie was paced or the style of music, but it was really funny. I did feel a little bad about laughing at a character with bipolar disorder.

Hamlisch was robbed of like all music awards last year.

The first 3/4 of this is a really well done tense thriller with some interesting character development. Natal spends the time for a slow build which really works well. However, it is all for nothing as the final 1/4 is absolutely terrible, unbelievable and laugh-out-loud silly.

Grade: first 3/4 A-; last 1/4 D


Bonus rant: The film contains one of my many biggest pet peeves. During the sex scene the instant intercourse begins the woman is screaming and moaning like crazy. The only conclusions one can draw are A) the writers have never had sex with a real woman and B) they get their idea of sex completely from porn.

It's a comedy about Tom Cruise not being able to get laid. And it's amazing.

Ok...NOW I need to see it again

:D
Maybe I DID understand it...

Animal Kingdom - David Michod, 2010

Itís a remarkable film that does something I donít know Iíve ever seen another film centered around crime of this sort do: it totally deglamourises it. GoodFellas never quite manages to convince us that the life of crime is a negative one. Despite all the fall in the second half, it revels too much in the flash, the glamour, the rise. Here there is no rise, only fall. No glamour, only paranoia. The flash is the guns as people get shot, and those who remain have to deal with the consequences.

Grade: A-

Nice one, FCM. I thought the opening credits were amazing, too.

I'm in some ways of a similar mind but the first 3/4th held up the last 1/4th more. The ending was a let-down. Though my concerns start after the sex.

Excellent review! You articulated a lot of the things I was going to say, but never quite did......however, the opening credits were over scored, loud, the kind of thing you might hear in a superhero/villain movie. A soulful solo trumpet would have gone better there, with light orchestration edging up toward the end :)
