Schindler's List (1993)
A milestone in cinema
This film IS a masterpiece! Spielberg infused his camera-work with urgency and attention to detail and he never strays away from horrific images, and then he films them just enough so they make an impact, never over the top... This is a rare movie which genuinely made me feel sad, happy, anxious and horrified in one afternoon, I can't think of an able counterpart... Late Mr. Ebert told in his review that Fiennes plays it too demented, as if the whole Nazi movement could be simply branded as evil- I disagree, it's subtle nuances in Fiennes's performance that show you how complex these characters really were.Cold, psychotic, resolute on the outside and torn apart with his lust for Jewish girl and the hardwired need to hate her people... It's incredible just how he pulls it off; In my opinion he made the movie, it wouldn't have worked with some other random actor.And not to say that I'm trying to justify Nazi movement, on the contrary, I'm only saying these people need to be understood and their actions put in a greater context, maybe Amon is a bad example, but a lot of those foot soldiers were just following orders. We can't just tag them as evil, as that's not enough, don't forget- they were able to seduce a complete nation, you can't do that just by playing evil, other factors come into play.It is exhausting movie to sit through, but in a good way, I would urge everyone ,as I have my complete family, to watch this milestone in cinema, such is its cultural impact... Only by watching this film and then dissecting it, can we truly appreciate its message- we are not born evil, we become evil when we fall under someone's spell and who intricately covers our eyes, by blaming everything that is wrong with our world, onto someone who is an easy target and can't defend for themselves... Only by including this film into mandatory school viewing can we only prevent that horrible event from happening ever again. People must understand, it's the only way to go about it...
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
I very much enjoyed it
First of all, don't let critics put you down for wanting to watch this film. They will draw comparisons with the original, which is a masterpiece in it's own right. I, for one, was utterly annoyed with late Mr. Ebert's review, for whom I have utmost respect, where he awarded this movie- a zero. It's so unfair because I believe this film has achieved it's aim effortlessly... It's highly engrossing, plot moves rather fast, the actors do OK job, except for fantastic Ms. Biel, who screams her lungs out and is also very easy on the eyes. This movie made me feel just like a good, uncompromising horror ought to. I felt anxious and scared for the protagonists, with suspension stemming from the fact that we know so little of the movie's horrific antagonist, who deals with intruders in no-non sense matter. Other undertones of creepy family surviving in the middle of no where and general feeling of danger hoovering over you the entire film are very well established in my opinion. It's scary, it's brutal, it's uncompromising just how we like 'em.
Pacific Rim (2013)
I really looked forward to this movie when it was announced. I'm glad it was worth it. I won't go into detail regarding the plot, I would like to relate the feeling I had while watching this. Saw it in 2D and it was a spectacle in it's own accord. Giant behemoths dealing punches, superimposed over general population, produces a feeling of wonder and awe that, I'm sure, del Toro captured unerringly. Adrenaline powered speeches and last minute heroics really made me feel like child again. I had the whole cinema cheer and boo at the screen on various occasions, and the demographic was from 3 to 93 years of age. Feeling is similar to Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" through out. It's what "Transformers" and "Godzilla" SHOULD have been. No better way of spending your afternoon than this. Just go watch it...
