The Imitation Game (2014)
Excellent job, Cumberbatch!
The Imitation Game follows a history of the journey of a man called Alan Turing during the World War II in discovering a machine called "Christopher" that now would be called "computers". Alan Turing, played by Benedict Cumberbatch himself is a so-called genius student graduating from Cambridge, who then applied for a "secret job" for the government in order to win the war against Germany.
He is one of some interns that got in, including a single, smart and pretty woman, Jean Clarke, played by Keira Knightley. Alan Turing found a chemistry with her, being able to talk to her the most than the other interns, but not in a romantic way. To make long story short, The British finally won the war because of the help of "Christopher" and in the end, they were asked to destroy it.
Indeed Benedict Cumberbatch did a stunning performance playing an anti- social and odd prodigy in the film. Keira Knightley's appearance as a supporting artist was also quite well. The Imitation Game is a biography film that is able to capture its audience in such a perfect pace. It has the capability to make audience to feel it is just a mere movie, rather than a history-biography movie.
Although there are some conversations I didn't agree to be very interesting, but overall it is a story that changes your perspective to see the "odd" ones.
After all, "sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine."
The Kings of Summer (2013)
Remarkably Recommended and Meaningful
First off, I'd like to say that this is my first ever movie review. I'd been prolonging until I find a non-blockbuster movie that can really caught me deeply and The Kings of Summer happened to be the one.
The acting in this movie is basically original, starring Nick Robinson who played Joe perfectly well as a fifteen year-old desperately wanting to get out of his dad's house under his rules just like a typical teenager. Then there's his best friend, Gabriel Basso who played as Patrick who loves his parents but also desperately wanting to get out of their house because of how their parents treat him as a child. Moises Arias as Biaggio, who I think really suits for the role of a physically small friend of both of them who appeared out of nowhere and could really get things funny because he's that lovable and warm. Joe's dad, Nick Offerman as Frank, played a great grumpy father who gets mad and cranky easily in this movie and then there's Erin Moriarty as Kelly, which plays the girl who Joe had a crush on.
The movie at first started just like any ordinary drama movie, but the various shots and angles made it look pretty smart in the beginning. As you watch longer, the movie started getting interesting to where it's going, although you can really guess what will happen next. The Kings of Summer with its "Into The Wild" theme is packed with humor and a bunch of emotional feeling will be involved throughout the movie. Another plus point for this movie is the selection of songs in the background or soundtracks, how each song suits perfectly well based on the actions the characters were doing which really built up my point of view towards the movie.
What caught me the most is how the movie is directed and made it as if he really wants us to feel to be like each one of the character involved there. The shots on the scenery and "wild" views in the forest really succeeded on making me re-think and went deeper about how there's more to the movie than what I've actually seen. The movie does have some really cliché teenager scenes, however, I like how it stays original and remain unpretentious by showing that there's a big chance that conflicts may happen between friends and families but then in the end you will always come back to them, by not having all the cheesy fights nor a corny truce. It sticks to reality and shows people that it is truly what it is.
Not considering how old you are, I really recommend you to watch this movie with anyone for you're about to feel that youth blood pumping down your streams and actually get something out of it. Praise for Jordan Vogt-Roberts for making this movie as perfect, my eyes were glistening right at the very last scene of the movie and at the same time drawing a smile on my face.
