House of Cards (2013)
Among the many alternative methods in portraying this series, Netlfix adds to their repertoire an insightful, dark, humorous and, vivid redemption-esc story to their already burgeoning empire. The star-studded rolodex of this series was cast impeccably, the writing is riveting and full of dark humour, and perhaps the "piste de resistance" is the way in which Spacey delivers a character so relatable and engaging that we ourselves feel nothing but pure involvement in the bureaucratic bullshit that is American politics. Bravo Netlfix in producing a magnificent series sure to please viewers for seasons to come.
The aspects of this film are visually stunning. The vivid feel of the dangers that take place in space, and the actors relationship to the emptiness that surrounds them are truly apparent in this film. A masterpiece in regards to direction, cinematography and visual effects, however the actors performances being well portrayed, where unfortunately distant in grabbing hold of me and truly impressing my previous perceptions of what talent they can offer. Bullocks performance was well, just perhaps not Oscar worthy? Despite the lack of performances, this film is a must see. It reminds us of what it means to be human, our relationship to our home (Earth), and that in the end this place is all we have. The beauty that surrounds us and that all we could possibly need to thrive is all around us. Bullocks' character wanted escape the reminders of earth, to see the frontiers of space, yet in the end she craved the familiarities of home and what she couldn't leave behind. Cuaron's intention to wonder the viewers could not have been more spot on. His envision is perhaps what makes this film great. No doubt that he can produce a film about our home so surreptitiously but yet so blatant. Oscar contention for sure.
A racing film that doesn't dull my movie going experience.
Unexpected from a racing film, this movie is a sure was to indulge yourself in the realm of competition and rivalries within sport. With the exception of Ron Howard, all aspects of this film where keeping me from seeing it. However, the racing (Formula 1) aspect is the least poignant part of the film. As always, Howard's multi-faceted approach to a film is a grasping angle to what this film offers. Hemsworth's role was far from the macho and mundane characters he has been type-casted in in the past, and Brulh's performance is probably the best of the film. The dynamic relationship between the two main characters and their impeccable direction of their story, from Howard, makes this film an enjoyable watch and perhaps a reference point for the genre of future racing films, that until now have always exhausted my senses.
Breaking Bad (2008)
Undoubtedly the best television show in recent history. When you invest so much of your time in a television show and share so much sympathy for the main characters it becomes hard to say goodbye. Now that Breaking Bad is over it has only hit me now, that it in fact, it is the greatest television show in history. What the cast a crew did with this brain child of Vince Gilligan is beyond extraordinary. The writing that this show produced will be well remembered and used for a reference for future television dramas. Although Walt got what he deserved in the end, he in fact went in a place he felt most a home, and perhaps most powerful, in a "chemistry" lab. He remains one of the greatest and saddest television characters to date. Bon voyage Walt.
