First Love was my first Takashi Miike film and I loved it very much.
The film mixes violence, comedy and subtle romance to deliver an entertaining roller-coaster ride from start to finish. Although it does take some time for the plot to take off which can be sometimes a bit boring.
Miike's direction and the characters were the best thing. Boxers, prostitutes, femme fatales and yakuza members all collide in a violent and sometimes hilarious way.
The performances of the…
This crime comedy was a riot from start to finish. Hilariously entertaining and yet so engaging in its story.
The sheer comic timing from the actors are brilliant and the lead actor delivers one heck of a performance
The writing too was so incredible. Well written funny characters
The director was the only hindrance, not knowing when to stop a scene and messy editing removes half star from this movie
Also the need for dance sequences was unnecessary
The Dark Knight returns in 6 different stories and I will be going through each of them
Replicating the story telling of Rashomon, this chapter shows three accounts of encounters with Batman by three kids. I admired the unique approach but the story falls flat added with bad animation.
Another unique story by focusing on two detectives who are taking a criminal to the penetionery with Batman as a supporting character. This chapter had great animation,…
My Indian friend strikes again with another great reccomendation.
If Reservoir Dogs was the aftermath of a failed bank robbery this is the before, during and after of a failed robbery. Boasting an outstanding cast, each of the actors deliver great and simply iconic peroformances.
Catchy musical score and a great screenplay with just fantastic dialogues boosts the film to greatness
But man with all that postive things aside, the movie has some very weak aspects. Horrendous editing and Unnecessary…
I have watched a lot of other country films but when it comes to India, I hesitate a bit because of their length and the grand scale musicals they have, a thing that I inherently dislike. So, I have an Indian friend who is also a film buff like me rec me some great films by India.
Ludo was one of them. A quirky group of characters whose stories collide with each other in a most violent way.
Although the film has a cliched plot it executes the story well enough to grip the audiences. Also the three leads were a treat to watch especially Lee Byung Hun as the cold and sinister fraud hiding behind the facade of a cool and calm business man.
Also, just an additional thing the film also had a similar vibe to "The Big Short" , a film thats kind of similar to this one
At first, I thought this was going…
I have no words to describe this film. But I will try though.
The film's about a teacher going through her daily life doing mundane activities. Along the way, she strikes up an affair with one of her students.
The story falls into the drama genre, a genre that I dont usually like that much because I find them boring and too long for a film. But Wet Season was such a heartfelt and subtle film about life. The tour…
A rich film in story and acting. Asako I and II is a story about an unusual love traingle. Although I have an aversion to long dramas this film is unique
Asako is a girl who meets Kaji, a mystical boy who she dates for a while before he leaves her while buying bread. Some years later she meets a boy named Ryoji who is the carbon copy of Kaji but he is a charming but a little dull character.…
Well the jokes on you, Jake Gyllenhaal cause I don't have a girlfriend
