I Am The Last Romantic.

Black heart. Black soul. I am so alive. I am so alone.

    I’m watching Noah



“I never thought I’d ever see an original film based from a biblical story. The best part was when it turned into ‘The Shining’ and Noah wanted to kill everyone lol. Actually, my favorite scene was the evolution of animal life on earth scene. That was actually quite cool. Only Aronofsky would have Noah almost end as him being a drunkard and alone haha. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, to be honest. I loved all of the liberties it took with the story to actually make it a more human story. The first half was jarring and I surprisingly didn’t care for it all that much, besides Noah’s visions were quite fantastic. The second half is were all the weight is. I definitely can see why Christians wouldn’t enjoy this film, but as an outsider looking in, it’s quite the visionary treat.”

    I’m watching The Raid 2



“I want to start this first off that I loved the material arts and choreography of the first one, but the story and plot was weak. This sequel is one of the worst written films I’ve seen in quite some time. There’s major inconsistency and continuity problems. It’s one of those films that show the audience so that means every one in the film knows without being told and it would be impossible in the time frame for them to be told. The time lapse of the film is so fucking bad I don’t even….now, for the action in the film….I feel the choreography was still strong and inventive as the first, but holy fucking shit did they lay the gore down in this one. If you’re a gorehound, this film is for you! Its seriously brutal for the sake of brutality. I will say the deaf and half blind chick with the hammers was my favorite character of the film. Even though she was nice and out of place lol. Definitely my biggest letdown of 2014 so far.”

    I’m watching Under the Skin



“This isn’t the same ‘Under The Skin’ I just watched, but it’ll do! It’s impossible not to say this without coming off pretentious as hell, but this film is only for serious film watchers. Incredibly provocative, but all the nudity in the film is used as tasteful as one can. Never over-sexualizes anything which I can’t praise enough for a film of this nature. There’s most definitely remnants of a few other films in this, but it’s damn near singular in filmmaking. Kubrick would have been proud, that’s for sure. The score almost never lets up from bringing tension to the screen. Even when nothing much is going on I was still on the edge of my seat. That’s the sign of a fantastic score. Just haunting. The ending left a bad taste in my mouth at first,  but the more I reflect on it the more I like it. For a film about an alien on earth, it’s the most human film I’ve seen this year. This film is about so many different things that I feel its going to morph into something completely different with my next and many viewings.”

    I’m watching Silicon Valley



“One of my new favorite shows. Some of the jokes miss their marks, but for the most part It’s hilarious and has a few characters you can actually care for. Very fun and awkward show. Hope it gets renewed at the end of the season!”

    I’m watching Oculus



“A few decent ideas behind it, but still pretty bad, unfortunately. I wanted to really like this one, but there’s just too much to swallow for the sake of it’s plot. Needed much more character development for it to be as heavy as it think it is. I wish it had a better director. Could have made a world of difference for a film of this nature. One REALLY good thing about this film was the little girl. She gave a top notch performance for a kid her age. Glad there’s a lot better kid actors these days. I’d probably watch the sequel for this film if it garners one, but I wouldn’t be let down if it doesn’t happen.”

    I’m watching The Grand Budapest Hotel



“Pretty positive this is the best film Wes Anderson has made yet. Hands down his grandest yet. Did not expect it to be so profoundly sad, though. It was like the best of Wes Anderson in 1 film haha. Definitely rivals The Royal Tenenbaums for my personal favorite of his. I have a great feeling this one will surpass it with multiple rewatches. Loved it.”
