I will add comments on each movie if I liked it or not. Feel free to leave comments on which movies I should watch next or why you agree/disagree!
Brokeback Mountain (2005)
A Truly Harrowing Film...
"Brokeback Mountain" is a very moving film about two men who work together in the mountains. Over time their friendship begins to broaden and they soon fall in love. This is all I will tell you about this movie because I do not want to ruin the experience that I had from it. I am a 15 year old, straight male. I had no intentions on really seeing this movie when I was younger, because of all of the jokes about it being just gay sex. Let me end these rumors now, it is not a film about sex. It isn't really a film about sexuality in general, it's about humans.
Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal both do an excellent job in their roles. I will admit that some parts of this movie, I had tears in my eyes. I don't know if I was upset for the characters, or was happy. It was just too many emotions to handle.
I would recommend this film to anyone who loves film. This is some of the finest acting I have seen in a while, and one of the best screenplays. Ang Lee did a wonderful job.
Valhalla Rising (2009)
Excellent film, but I understand the low rating.
Valhalla Rising is one of those films that you most likely will not find another film like it. First of all, I understand the rating on here, and some of the reviews. I could see going into this movie thinking you're going to get "300" but end up with a weird, trippy movie like this.
Surprisingly to others, I take it, this movie is not filled with action or even considered an action film. It's a movie that you need to really think about and focus in on. I have only seen it two times, but I feel like I fully understand the concept of it. It has many hints of religion, life, death, and what it means to be a human throughout the entire film. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a very visual, thought provoking film. I would stay away from it if you're looking for an action film, you won't find much here, except a few graphic kills.
127 Hours (2010)
I was lucky enough to see this film before it hit theaters.. Instantly, just when the film opened with Free Blood's song Never Hear Surf Music again, I knew I was going to love it. Most films like this have its boring intro.. Well, this one doesn't. It instantly will drag you in. Now, most likely before you see this film, you WILL hear ending.. No worries! This film is a true story it does say it is based on a book written by the man who encountered this terrifying experience. I will not go into detail about the ending though. But yes, if you do hear the ending, do NOT let that discourage you from watching it! I knew the ending from reading things about the true story, I remember the news paper article when it happened. Anyway, back to way this is so great. The camera angles blew me away, I love the camera angles while he is on his bike.. Now, this film is rated R for a good reason. But, I believe that some teens could handle this.. The ending is very graphic and disturbing but the rest of the movie is not bad at all. This film is a great one to watch and put on the top of your list. 5 out of 5! *****
