|Christian Bale in the Big Short as a nerdy Fund Manager. He is an amazing presence in a movie. Watch him in American Hustle.|
Other movies I loved:
Sicario - Benicio Del Toro was the best lovable-mean guy this year, in a very good movie.
Hateful Eight - It was an experience not just a movie. Most hateful female in a movie ever - you will want to kill her (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Quentin Tarantino remakes the who-done-it into a modern day classic. He provides a program with his movie and an intermission (like the movies of old). Saw it yesterday and couldn't stop thinking about it but I dreamed about a City of Miami Election.
Ex Machina - Good twist.
The Martian - Because he didn't have to deal with people. Lucky guy. Ending: Was stupid, not realistic (like the rest of the movie was??).
Bridge of Spies - Tom Hanks is always good. Easier to watch history in a movie (like the Big Short).
Jurassic World (49th installment of the series) - Love dinosaur pictures where they kill people.
Mission Impossible - For me, Tom Cruise can do no wrong. Sue me. Well there was that one movie where he wore a thong. Even Tom could not save that film. From Risky Business, Mission Impossible and especially A Few Good Men, Rain Man, Edge of Tomorrow, War of the Worlds and Collateral Damage (the best) I think he delivered. If you have not seen Collateral Damage you cannot appreciate Tom Cruise's brilliance as an actor.
2015 Movies can't recommend: (Disclaimer: I don't like Chick Flicks)
Fifty Shades of Gray - Bad remake of Kim Basinger classic 9 1/2 Weeks. No chemistry.
The Hunger Games - Yawn.
The Spy - Not funny.
Mad Max-Fury Road - Hate vehicle centered movies.
The Intern - Not anything to say except: What are you doing in a movie like this Robert DeNiro?
The Night Before - Seth Rogan is a one dimensional actor. Can't carry a movie anymore.
|Hateful Eight - Samuel L. Jackson is the 'Charlie Chan' of the movie.|
What are your picks?
