A Holiday Classic
Elf, starring Will Ferrell, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, and directed by Jon Favreau, is a perfect, perfect holiday film. The whole thing feels like it hopped right off of a holiday pop-up book.
Will Ferrell is, as usual, a comic and dramatic genius. He gets into his character so well that you instantly forget that it's Will Ferrell, and begin to think of him as Buddy the elf.
James Caan is a wonderful actor. He gives so much depth into his character as Buddy's father. You can see his conflict of interest between his job and his son.
Zooey Deschanel was the perfect choice. She isn't one of the plastic "beauties" that reign in Hollywood these days, and that lends itself very well to the classic-ness of the film.
The whole thing is masterful. Masterfully acted, directed, scored, written, and edited. Hopefully generations after generations will be able to enjoy this film.
Finding Nemo (2003)
The Best Pixar Movie (minor spoilers)
Easily the best Pixar movie. Great music, great direction, GREAT voice acting, great "set" design, great humor, great story, great dialogue, great scenes. The best Pixar movie EVER!
Finding Nemo is about a widowered clownfish named Marlin that is over protective over his just-in-school son Nemo. After Nemo gets caught by humans, Marlin goes on a wild seamonkey chase to get him back.
EXCELLENT voice acting from Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Willem Dafoe, and Alexander Gould. EXCELLENT music from Thomas Newman. The BEST directing of an animated movie EVER!
The entire crowd at my theater ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! No joke fell flat. The tone was perfect, everything was perfect. There's nothing I can say that was bad about it, or even could be improved.
The Kind of Movie that Leaves a Good Taste in Your Mouth
This is my #4 greatest movie ever made. Great laughs all the way through, PERFECT acting. Excellent action scenes, a real smile-as-you-watch movie. Perfect directing by Verbinski. Can't wait for the sequel!Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
(very minor spoilers)
The only way to describe this movie is Magilliant. It's filled with classic Mayazaki magic and classic Mayazaki brilliance. Not a single line falls flat, it's perfectly dramatic and horrific and actionous and graceful exactly when it needs to be.
Mayazaki is this generation's perfection. He never misses a beat, even down to the music. The piano solo that plays when Chihiro starts crying after she finds the card in her old clothes is perfect. Also the song at the end is absolutely beautiful.
All in all, this movie is my no. 1 movie ever.
Magical and Astounding
This magical movie starring Tim Roth is absolutely astounding! There is nothing bad that I can say about it. The music is excellent, and there is no flaw to the actors messing around on the piano as another person plays it. I play piano myself, and there is no flaw at all with the finger placement or anything. I was convinced that these actors actually knew how to play piano.
Pruett Taylor Vince is astonishing as the talented trumpeter who walks into a pawn shop to sell his trumpet, but gives and gets a lot more than he bargained for. He tells the pawn broker a wonderful story about music and love and a duel for interest.
Clarence Williams III, though only in a bit part, brings majesty to his character and his small scene, though not overacting. His scene is hilarious and mindblowing.
Mélanie Thierry plays her tiny part wonderfully. The scene where 1900 improvises piano about her is refreshing.
Overall, this movie is not only a movie, but an experience.
