🎥 MOVIES WATCHED IN JANUARY 2016 📽
⭐️: I hope I watched this on Member Tuesday ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️: I feel the stars were speaking through me and I live
- •Macbeth (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️Marion Cotillard owns this. Stark, haunting and stylistic. Not for everyone though.
- •Ex Machina (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️A notable directing debut by writer Alex Garland. The film managed to maintain the tension and yet allowed clues to sprinkle through.
- •Wild (2014): ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I enjoyed this better than I thought I would. Haven't read the book but the director did justice alternating flashbacks and real situations. The cinematography is gorgeous. I cried buckets 😪
- •Vertical Limit (2000): ⭐️⭐️It wasn't as bad as I thought and quite decent for its time. Acting could be better though.
- •Room (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️A tad too long but it had to be. You have to let things breathe and tell its story when it's ready. You have to.
- •Concussion (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️I like behind-the-scenes stories and how things come to be that way. This one is a safe take on it, and I came away expecting more.
- •Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Holy starry plot holes, General Leia! A rewatch in a near-empty theatre. Still love it. The jarring THX-inspired intro always gets me.
- •Spotlight (2015): ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I like investigative features and I thought this was a safe and decent attempt. I love Liev Shreiber's take on Marty Baron, just understated doggedness and calmness.
