The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)
Unusual Anthology Film
I didn't know many things about this movie when I decided to watch it. I thought it's just another usual crime/action movie, but it's not. It's an unusual anthology movie, that will surprise you here and there, and keeps you guessing. It has some clichés, but not too many. The acting is very good, Ryan Gosling proves once again that he can act, and Ray Liotta, though having only a minor role, he doesn't fail to deliver. Bradley Cooper's was not so great though, just average, but overall, the movie is very believable. One thing I didn't like though. I felt that the movie was made in a hurry. This is the kind of movie that needs to be at least 3 hours long, with more character development, but I will let that slide.
If you enjoy Anthology Movies as much as I do, then I recommend this one.
Dial M for Murder (1954)
Tension combined with great acting results in a Masterpiece!
I watched this movie for the first time in 2013, and I can honestly tell you that is better than many big budget thrillers made these days. It had everything, drama, tension and some action. All these combined with some great performances of Ray Milland and Grace Kely. This was the first movie I ever watched starring Ray Milland, and I can tell you that after watching this movie I declared myself a Ray Milland fan. He is so natural and such a believable actor. The script is very well written. It's so intriguing and catching, that you won't even notice the whole movie is happening in one room. Dial M for Murder is one of Hitchcock's best movies in my opinion. Movies like this, never get old. They might get better though, so if you haven't seen this movie yet, I envy you, and you should see it right away.
Django Unchained (2012)
Almost a Masterpiece!
This is a typical Tarantino movie. The dialogue is very well written and very entertaining. The characters are brilliant. We have some strong performances of Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz which deserved his second Oscar. If you are familiar with Tarantino's work, you probably know that there will also be a lot of shootouts. Shootouts very well done by the way, very bloody and gory, but in my opinion this is the weakest part of the movie. The movie was good enough with the characters, dialogue and the landscapes, it didn't need so many guns and explosions, but we have to accept them since this was a tribute brought by Tarantino to the classics "Spaghetti Westerns". Overall, this was a good movie. If you like Tarantino's work, then this is a must-see for you.
