127 Hours (2010)
Immensely intriguing and entertaining.
As Aron Ralston heads into the canyon he goes into a dip where a boulder falls onto his arm keeping him stuck there for, well, 127 hours. Aron realizes that he has to make the toughest decision of his life: Die there sad and alone regretting his selfishness to his family or cut his arm off with a cheap pocketknife and have his redemption.
No one knows where he is, he has no phone (which even if he did he would have no signal). All he has is a cheap pocketknife (which I already mentioned), rope, a carabiner, a camera, some batteries, a camel back with no water in it, and a bottle with only a few milliliters of water. So pretty much Aron is screwed.
Only a few hours before his incident Aron met two women hiking in that canyon. There names are Megan and Kristi. For all Aron knows these two people could be the last people he ever sees.
As Aron is in that dip he has a whole lot of time to think about all of his decisions. He films him self in that dip with his camera and tells about his regrets. He regrets that he never returns his mom's calls. He regrets that he went to that canyon that weekend after he promised his sister that he would rehearse with her for her wedding.
Aron comes to realization that all of this was his fault, that this boulder had been waiting for him an the only way to have his redemption and get a new life is to cut his arm off.
WARNING: Do NOT read the following paragraph if you haven't heard this story of Ralston already! It contains spoilers.
That cheap pocketknife Aron has is what saves him, because in the third act Aron makes the decision to cut the arm off. Aron lives and has a happy life from there on, although he has to walk miles without an arm before he finds people to help him. He fixes all the messed up decisions he made and gets that redemption I've been talking about.
This film is nothing less than spectacular. Boyle's incredible direction plus the amazing performance by Franco make this a masterpiece. But if you want to see this movie you have to get use to Franco's face because you'll be seeing it quite a bit in this movie.
Also, because there's hardly any characters the emotional depth that they the filmmakers had to put in each and every character is tremendous. And they succeeded at putting that emotionality into each and every character.
This could have very boring, and I mean VERY boring. But thankfully we have Boyle who made this the most entertaining, intense, and spectacular movie of the year. Absolutely astonishing.
(500) Days of Summer (2009)
Uniquely filmed. Well acted.
Tom (Joseph Jordan-Levitt) thinks he won't ever be truly happy in his life until he finds his true love which he finds in a unique girl named Summer (Zooey Deschanel) who doesn't believe in love.For him it's love at first sight, he knew she would be the one the moment he saw her, for her though, it was a little different.
This comedy will seem like more of a romance to those who haven't seen, but it seemed to me to be a lot more of a comedy with a romantic premise about meets girl.
Something else that I find really neat about this movie is that it's not in chronological order. This film shows the 500 days, but jumps around a lot. This might confuse people who aren't smart, but this film wasn't made for the mainstream audience.
I definitely recommend this film, It was one of the best films of 2009, but perhaps not for every one
10 out of 10
Office Space (1999)
this film never gets old
Office space is a film that I can watch a thousands times in a row, and it never gets old. It's a brilliant movie by a brilliant creator, Mike Judge. This movie may not appeal to all, but the ones it will appeal to will seriously appreciate it. It did horribly when it first came out but it's found a cult audience.
Peter is a man that hates his job and life. Everyday it's the same: get up, go to work, go home, watch TV, go to bed. One day his wife wants to take him to a hypnotherapist and he goes along with it. That night every changes for Peter. It changes for the better, and for the worse.
I give office space 10 out of 10 because it's hilarious all the way though and it has a great story. You will never get bored during this movie.
