Crop And Save
Deserves a Z.
It is in fact a lame movie that I don't recommend. I think if you really want a good documentary about Facebook you should have to include actual footage, an actual storyline, actual music, and some actual effort into the final product. This "movie" if you can call it that, feels like it was thrown together in a matter of hours, if that. Whoever made this should feel slightly ashamed of themselves for putting together a movie so bad that I don't think it would get a passing grade on even the lousiest of film teacher's classes. It would be lucky to get an F. If I were the teacher, I would've given this a Z for being so bad.
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Intriguing crime-drama, keeps you interested, Tarantino's best film.
Allow me to begin with a probably controversial introduction: I enjoyed Reservoir Dogs more than Pulp Fiction. Alright, has every calmed themselves? Good, let's move on.
The first, and by far the best, feature-film written and directed, even starring, Quentin Tarantino. It begins with an opening scene that is more used to make us laugh, introduce our characters and find out who they are a bit, as well as break the ice with a comfortable scene around a table in the AM as opposed to most films which prefer opening with a big action scene. This is a more subtle and sinister introduction to our beloved cast of characters. It really puts who these guys are into perspective.
After a wonderful credits sequence that showcase our titular 'Reservoir Dogs', accompanied by the fantastic song 'Little Green Bag' by The George Baker Selection. We find that the film isn't about planning a heist, nor is it about the heist. It's about the bloody aftermath of a botched robbery gone horrifically wrong. Mr. Orange is bloody and screaming in the back of a car while Mr. White holds his hand and speeds recklessly through traffic.
The film also takes liberties of showing us the backstories of Mr. White, Mr. Blonde, and finally Mr. Orange. All intercutting through the remaining men (Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, Mr. Blonde, and eventually Nice Guy Eddie and Joe.) The climax and ending prove to be some of the best scenes ever committed to cinema, disregarding how wonderful the entire film is already. Those final 15 minutes blow me away every time I view them.
All-in-all, I prefer it to the also wonderful Pulp Fiction, simply because it's more story-based, it's shorter, and comes to a solid conclusion. As well as not being too hard to follow on your first couple of viewing, unlike Pulp was.
Fantastic flick, check it out if you haven't already!
Unrealistic to the point where it looks more like 'Saved by the Bell', as opposed to a real high school experience.
When this show first aired on ABC Family, I watched it and enjoyed it. However, I was younger and was not, at that time, in high school. So everything looked and felt right to me. However, upon recently purchasing and re-watching only the first episode of the first season, I realised what a terrible mistake I made. At present, I'm a sophomore in high school - approximately the age of the characters in this series, so I am the target audience. However, I find this show to be pretty bad in hindsight.
The first major issue may just be a personal one, but I've got tosay it. The religious aspect of this show. I'm agnostic, and in general, religion doesn't bother me too much. But the overtones of Christianity suffocate me and make this an unenjoyable experience.
Secondly, the character all sound phony. None of the dialogue is even remotely realistic. I can point out shows with non-realistic dialogue and still manage to be good shows; like, say, Dawson's Creek. That was an example of being realistic without being realistic.
Thirdly, too much drama comes out of just the first episode. It's literally just thrown at us and they see what sticks. That is not good writing. That is a shotty attempt at pretentious, self-important drama.
All in all, it wasn't the worst thing I've ever had to sit through, and I found myself laughing through a lot of it (albeit for all the wrong reasons), so maybe give it a shot. I just know it's not my cup of tea.
