  1. Yeah, it's really a film that could only have been made post Rain Man for him, and I'm grateful for that. Fantastic cast too. It actually got a nomination for best original screenplay and it should have won. Everything just flows so wonderfully. I love how nostalgic, and yet so realistic it is about youth and the struggle of making it in U.S., as a person from another country.
  2. Glad I'm not the only person on here, whose seen that film. It's such a beautiful film about immigrants and family. Levinson's entire Baltimore set series of movies (Diner, Tin Men, Avalon, & Liberty Heights), deserves more appreciation then it gets. They really show how strong of a filmmaker he could be back in the day, and they feel a lot more personal compared to any other flicks in his filmography.
  3. I think it helps in John Wick's case that the first only did modest business. Most sequels that increase from the first are following a movie that did respectable but not amazing business, like in the case of Austin Powers, or are following a film that was very successful, but wasn't one of the years 1, 2, or 3rd highest grossing flick like say Lethal Weapon. John Wick falls in the first category. Huge movies that have sequels will generally decrease, because while they open huge, they don't quite have the same sort of repeat value as the first, especially back in the day when that mattered.
  4. I never got that complaint either. Reeves has given some legit strong performances in the past. In Sam Raimi's The Gift he practically steals the show as an absolute monster, and recently he was cast well in a little seen flick The Bad Batch. Keanu's not the greatest of actors, but like any performer, he has his own wheelhouse, and he works well in that. The Wick movies are great, because among other things he plays a solemn figure well. There's a reason he's stuck around and been as relevant as long as he has.
  5. Yeah, following the film from its conception, the response, the prediction, to its release was was cool to follow. Really I don't 100% care if the film was truly successful or not, I'm just glad we got a live-action Pokemon film at all.
  6. Same! I wasn't even aware of this film until last week, but those glowing reviews have definitely pique my interest. Sounds like a strong little indie.

  10. My review. https://dailyuv.com/profile/2232/978850
  11. It's not. It's based off a Japanese Light Novel, it was just being compared to a video game. That would actually probably make EOT arguably the best live-action manga adaptation, however.
  12. This was really enjoyable. It got convoluted at the end a bit, and I think tone-wise it was a bit uneven, but I thought they did a solid job at introducing The Pokemon world, and the CGI of the Pokemon creatures themselves was great. Also Pikachu was adorable, I loved all his expressions.
