    72. LES MISERABLES "Oh, life has killed the dream, I dream." Yes, Russell Crowe isn't a good singer. Yes, the camera angles are often way too close. Yes, the movie is often very hammy. But what can I say, it's Les Miserables. Tom Hooper simply lets the show be the show in this beautifully captured yet quite flawed movie. The passion covers up many of the cracks and stays true to the ultimate heart of the movie and the music that really lets the show do its thing. Like Into The Woods, it's an adaption that rides along just how good its source material is, and with the epic and bombastic feel of the whole thing, it feels fresh and magical with each viewing. The cast (even Crowe) ultimately brings the dramatic depth necessary for their roles, and it all works out in creating something truly special. Plus, let Anne Hathaway have her cake for this movie. She really was all that and a bag of chips. 71. SPRING BREAKERS "Spring break, forever" Imagine MTV through an art house filter and you've got this wild ride of a movie. Harmony Korine's fly on the wall direction allows us to stand by these girls as they willingly enter a world of violence, darkness, and a void of morality, but it captures everything in a distorted (at times, literally) lens that glamorizes everything that these girls do, even though one can see that these are hardly acts worthy of such valor. It plays out to become a sharp and scathing look at the emptiness of the youth culture of wild parties, swag, and the #YOLO mentality in a way that doesn't ignore what makes it so alluring in the first place. Korine brilliantly plays with the contrast between what we see and what's really going on the confuse us and ultimately find solace outside of this truly fucked-up world. It's seriously one of the most brilliantly directed films of the decade, one that basically only allows for gradual appreciation.

    74. BERNIE "Ms. Nugent is in a deep freezer headed for Dallas!" Most people are singing Richard Linklater's praises on accounted of Before Midnight and Boyhood, (myself included) but his 2012 black comedy also deserves plenty of love. Jack Black shines as Bernie, a friendly, Ned Flanders-esque mortician who marries a local widow, but does something shocking after becoming gradually and quietly infuriated by her. The mockumentary style for the film works surprisingly well, giving a local touch and a strong distinction for the love that the people of Carthage, TX have for Bernie, while also giving surprising light to the controversy of the situation. It avoids Hollywood pitfalls and works in a subtle enough manner that makes us still root for Bernie, yet question why we're doing so. A sharp and underrated character study indeed. 73. NIGHTCRAWLER "If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket." Living near Detroit, I often see countless shocking stories on the local news, and it somewhat bores me that the focus is on this rather than important global news. Dan Gilroy feels the same way in this slickly made, relentlessly entertaining satire of the contemporary news industry. The heart of the movie lies in Jake Gyllenhaal's Lou Bloom, a shady man seeking to make himself live up to the American Dream and finds a dubious way of doing so. It's a brilliantly dark, and darkly brilliant, tale that encompasses more than just media satire in its body and blood: How much empathy are you willing to throw away to make some big bucks? Bloom turns into a vulture of the night, preying on tragedy for his own gain. It's a brilliant film that proves to be not just thought provoking, but really fun as well.

    Rewatched it WOW its actually really damn good. Does the 60's thriller McQueen like stuff is great. I LOVE the action, no fact cut action music bull shit. Lots of wide shots, the shots tell the story, lack of music. It was like a grounded real life realistic superhero movie in a way. B+ (87)

    The phrase is tired and worn out. We need more specific extensions for it. Made more sense in the early 2000s when it was fresh. Now, the style's so pervasive that it's far too general a term.

    "You did the right thing. I don't blame you." [Gives thumbs up with a crooked smile.] I was already on board after You're Next. Now, I'll be watching Adam Wingard very, very closely. This is my kind of genre flick, hemorrhaging all over the screen while sporting a Cheshire cat grin. Jogged fond memories of staying up late with the little bro to watch movies like The Hitcher. A

    Watched the ending for a second time, and it's really more disturbing outside of an electrified theater auditorium. That moment when all the rest of the band stops playing "Caravan" and Andrew just keeps pounding the drums like a maniac, you know he just crossed the line and he ain't going back. Even Fletcher's "What the hell are you doing, man?" sounds like he's genuinely worried for the guy, although afterwards he visibly gets high on what Andrew is doing.

    Reissues is a tough thing I've had to bring up so many times like Gone with the Wind DID NOT make that much in its first run. (BOM use to add older films as well as look around for more data back with Brandon and Sean were in charge but that's another story)

    I just finished watching and I liked it. Interesting movie and both leads gave good performances. It was trippy and I was sure what was going on till it was revealed. If people are on the fence, they should just give it a chance and watch it. I would give it a.... B(86)
