Crop And Save
The best and most unique motion picture of the year.
"Birdman" is a comedy drama directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and stars Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis and Edward Norton. Riggan Thomson, played by Keaton, is an actor on the last leg of his career. It has been 20 years since the original Birdman movie came out and made him a star. He has searched for relevance within his art ever since. His last chance at being remembered as anything other than Birdman comes in a theater adaptation of Raymond Carver's "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love," which he wrote, and is directing and staring in. The play starts to fall apart and Thomson's psyche goes with it. He starts to imagine the character of Birdman as an alternate personality of his and the lines between reality and fantasy become more blurred. Michael Keaton is a man mostly known for one role. While many cinephiles will tell you the man has had a plethora of amazing characters to his name, there is one that still haunts him to this day, Batman (1989). Since then, he has become an actor fighting under the shadow of success, which makes him perfect for the role of Riggan Thomson. Keaton is beyond excellent in this film. It will be a crime if he does not win an Oscar for Best Actor this year. He brings sadness to his character and plight. The fight for relevance is something every creative person can relate to and he makes it even more heartbreaking. It is never truly stated whether Thomson sees truth or illusion. The character is constantly on the edge of a breakdown, he adds realism and believability to the fantasies around him. The acting in general is to be commended. Stone and Norton both give award-worthy performances as well. Stone plays Thomson's drug addicted daughter and Norton plays a fictional version of himself. Both play characters who, in the wrong hands would be deplorable, but they make them charming. There are many interesting and engaging aspects of this film. The continuous shots, the mixture between meta-realism and off-the-wall visuals and random moments of black comedy make it compelling. The meta-realism of this movie is present and sound. Many pieces of fiction fail at building a convincing world, but this movie never struggles with it. The superhero craze, the nature of critics and the personality of an actor are just some of the aspects of this movie which make it successful.
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Wes Anderson+Ralph Fiennes+ Adrien Brody = An excellent movie
In a somewhat rare turn for an Anderson script, this one actually has a plot! Essentially it's the tale of a hotel in the Republic of Zubrowka, a fictional central-European country that has mountain views, funicular transportation, and a candy-pink hotel that's propped up on one of the local peaks.
With a story that spans several decades, the bulk of the narrative takes place during the hotel's heyday, just as the tide of the Second World War is crashing on the borders of Zubrowka.
The story is one of art thievery, providing gigolo services to octogenarians, and the importance of good manners and good service as aspects of one's conduct.
Lone Survivor (2013)
A Movie that is worth Watching!!!!!
Director Peter Berg made a massive misstep with 2012′s Battleship. There was a decent ninety-minute popcorn movie buried underneath all the bloat, but worst of all, it had no personality. It didn't feel like a movie Berg had to make. Not every movie has to be a serious passion project, but when the passion is on screen, it speaks volumes. That theory is proved well by Berg's latest film, Lone Survivor, his best film since The Rundown. The true life story follows, if you haven't guessed yet, a lone survivor, Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg). You could consider that a spoiler, but the movie opens with the rescue of Luttrell. It's a questionable creative decision because a good deal of film goers will discover Luttrell's journey with this film, but then it becomes more a matter of how Luttrell got there rather than who survived. Berg goes about introducing Luttrell and his team Matt Axelson (Ben Foster), Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), and Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch) with the standard camaraderie and exposition that's expected. It's a fine set-up, but it's forgotten once the four of them are thrust into battle, where we learn more about them through action.
One of the best in 2013!!!
Though director Spike Jonze collaborated with Charlie Kaufman on Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, the latter didn't have a hand in Jonze's assured, moving fourth feature, but his spiritfiendishly inventive, casually postmodern, self-lacerating, fearless, funny, and ultimately deeply sadpervades the film. With Her, Jonze beautifully realizes a future Los Angeles where a lovesick man (Joaquin Phoenix) in the midst of a devastating divorce is so desperate for intimacy that he falls hopelessly in love with an artificially intelligent operating system, voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Jonze's screenplay acknowledges the innate absurdity of the film's premise while spinning it into an elegant, heartbreaking depiction of human loneliness and the innate need for connection. For the setting, Jonze plugged into the current era's technological mania to say something timeless and profound about love, loss, and evolving desire.

Fight Club is one movie that exactly caught million tensions. Great performances, stunning visuals and a plot like nothing you've ever seen - one of the films ever made
