Puzzle Pieces

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 14 October 2006 01:14 (A review of The Game)

So what do you get the man that has everything? How about this movie. The intelligent intrigue of The Game delivers a psychological thriller unlike any movie I have ever seen. Michael Douglas gives an oscar worthy performance battling the drama of a conspiracy created by on-screen brother, Sean Penn. Like Michael Douglas's character, the boundary between the game and real life became obscurred in my mind until the finale revealed one of the best twists I have ever seen.

Lift Off

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 14 October 2006 12:31 (A review of Bottle Rocket)

Bottle Rocket was the defining moment that sparked my interest in the Indie movement. It is the first in the promising career of director Wes Anderson and in my opinion the best. This movie also introduced the writing/acting talents of brothers Luke and Owen Wilson.

Challenged with monotony of suburban life, Anthony Adams (Luke Wilson) and Dignan (Owen Wilson) adventure off into a life of petty crimes. The subtleness of its humor the quirkiness of its characters attracted me most to the storyline of a life I wish I had. I would say more if I wasn't suffering from CRS.

UnUsual Originality

Posted : 11 years, 2 months ago on 13 October 2006 10:55 (A review of The Usual Suspects)

The originality of perhaps the best written movie I have ever watched has left me only to describe my favorite movie of all time. Never before has a movie challenged the viewer with such a web of twists and turns, an entangling of the mind reminiscent of a true Kansas City Shuffle.

From the beginning to end, we are left questioning the outcome to the movie that single-handedly reshaped the crime drama genre. The aura that writer Christopher McQuarrie surrounds villian Keyser Soze with adds to the mystique of this true cult classic. And the ending, which stands at the pinnacle movie making, will now and forever leave first time viewers in complete awe of its mastery. I highly recommend this movie to anyone with a mind and appreciation for brilliant writing.
