Synopsis

When single father Jimmy Logan loses his job just before his ex-wife plans to move away with his daughter, he enlists the help of his one-armed bartender brother and a crazy convict acquaintance to pull off a heist and rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway in order to get the money he needs for a custody lawsuit.

How’s the Story?

The story for Logan Lucky is so refreshingly original and interesting that I’m actually amazed it didn’t suck. I say that because it could’ve easily been a movie that tried waaaayyy too hard, but instead it was just perfectly balanced and ultra enjoyable. All the moving pieces of this film work together so well that it feels like it should be a common trope film, not something very original and entertaining.

How’s the Acting?

The acting in this film is pretty spectacular, but what else could you expect from a film with Daniel Craig and Adam Driver both in it? Channing Tatum is the real standout in this film for me, though, and that’s because in my experience, Channing Tatums isn’t that good of an actor. He’s charming, he’s charismatic, he plays very ‘soft’ for such a big burly man, but while I always love him on my screen, I rarely think he’s a good actor. He’s usually just Channing Tatum in a movie.

However, in Logan Lucky, I don’t see Channing Tatum, I see Jimmy Logan. I’m not sure if it’s to be chalked up to the director, since I’m a big believer in the ‘a good director can turn anyone into an actor’ school of thought, but this is one of his best performances by far. It isn’t anything all that grand, Jimmy is a pretty simple character with no major ‘you have to act the hell out of this scene’ moments, but that’s probably what makes the performance so amazing: ‘normal’ acting is waaayyyy harder than ‘big’ acting. I used to be a stage actor, and let me tell you, playing ‘just a person’ is way harder than playing ‘a person dying bloody’ and things like that.

Channing Tatum manages to be just a West Virginia dad trying to do what he has to for his daughter in a way I never thought Channing Tatum could pull off.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

I loooove how this movie is written. The humor is consistent throughout and it’s always situational, not something forced into the script. By that, I mean that simple things are hilarious without it having to become a shtick. Things like, “Can you hand me my arm?” “This one?” ends up being hilarious. Also just the intricacy put into the heist was wonderful.

Side note, I looooved the inmates demands. That was such a funny choice. So good!

Also, for the record, I never expected this movie to make me cry, damn it! The relationship between Jimmy and his daughter is something so touching and without spoilers, I won’t say what, but the scene with the singing had me in tears, and I find that very rude, Mr. Soderbergh, because I DID NOT EXPECT THAT!

How’s the Cinematography?

While nothing stands out as groundbreaking, this movie did it’s job with cinematography. There was nothing out of place and the landscapes were very beautiful. I would say that the praise goes best to that, the choice of locations and how they’re shown on the screen. Otherwise, it’s good but nothing that will win any awards anytime soon.

Is It Worth Watching?

Logan Lucky was just as good as I ever hoped it could be. I absolutely recommend this movie for so many reasons. However, there are some small things that take away from an otherwise potentially top-10 film, and those are things most likely down to editing.

The movie has some threads of story that feel incomplete and I don’t really think they should have been there at all if they couldn’t expand on them further. The main one is the whole thing with the British guy and the racing team. It was amusing to have his whole rivalry with Clyde in there, but it didn’t really add anything to the movie. Same with including Sebastian Stan’s character, the race car driver. He didn’t really add anything to the movie. Another one is the doctor lady. Again, nothing that hurt the film, but it was something that didn’t add anything, so I feel like it was just unnecessary. All of these things, I feel, were probably meant to have a bigger bearing on the film, but in editing, they took out the things that made all of those character’s necessary. It would have been better, I think, to just not focus on those characters and their parts in the story if they weren’t going to capitalize on their inclusion.

Other than that one real detractor of probably questionable editing, Logan Lucky is one of the better films of the year, and I really appreciated the characters and their relationships. Also, on a more personal note, I loved this movie because Jimmy reminded me of my daddy. My parents are still married, have been for 32/33 years or so, but when I was a little girl, I was just like Sadie. Me and my daddy did everything together. He was my best friend as a child and to this day is still one of the best men I’ve ever known, and because of that, Jimmy’s motivation for the heist makes more sense than any heist movie I’ve ever seen.

This movie is about an amazing father who loves his child doing a bad thing because he can’t stand losing the best thing in his whole world, and it’s so refreshing to see such a pure motivation for a heist movie as well as such a violence-free heist that doesn’t make you feel any negative feelings towards the people involved. It’s easily one of very few ‘crime’ movies where you just have a bunch of (arguably) good people doing a bad thing for a good reason.

It’s just such an original idea with a fun execution, and I cannot express strongly enough how bummed I am the box office is looking to not be so good for this movie this opening weekend. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it, GO WATCH IT! It’s well worth the price of admission.

My Rating: 8/10

Handsome Devil (2016)

handsome-devil-poster-small

  • Directed by John Butler
  • Starring Fionn O’Shea, Nicholas Galitzine, Andrew Scott
  • Written by John Butler
  • Comedy, Queer
  • Rated PG-13
  • 95 mins.
  • 2 June 2017

Synopsis

When a young outcast becomes roommates with the newest rugby star at a boarding school where rugby is the most popular thing at school, both their lives change in a big way.

How’s the Story?

I really didn’t expect this to go the way it did! I was under the impression going in that this was a romance and I thought the two boys were going to fall in love, but (spoiler alert) they don’t! And it’s actually fantastic of a direction to take it. I loooove the way this film uses friendship between two very different boys to show them finding a way to lift each other up in a period of life where kids are cruel and insecurity is crushing.

How’s the Acting?

The acting is pretty good. There’s nothing outstanding but there’s nothing bad. I particularly liked the performance of Conor. He was kind of bland but I could feel that it was on purpose. He was a boy trying to hard to not be himself that he became very blank and empty and only had flashes of personality here and there, and the performance really portrayed that well. It’s a hard character to play and this kid did it very well.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

The writing and directing is good but not great. There are so many things that I feel were either unnecessary or underdeveloped. I feel like Andrew Scott’s character was a good idea that didn’t really get fleshed out as well as he should’ve been. It worked, just not to the full potential. And there was so much time spent on the music for it to just fall away in the third act and be ignored for the rest of it. It was kind of just sloppily handled.

Nothing was bad, but there were a few flaws that drag the movie down just a bit.

How’s the Cinematography?

It’s okay. I like some of the things done in the bedroom with the “Berlin Wall” quite a lot, and there are some fun things that go on here and there, but overall, it’s mostly just pretty average.

Is It Worth Watching?

I think that even if you aren’t always seeking out good queer films like I do, this is a good film to give a shot. It’s new on Netflix (in the US at least), it’s a light, fun watch, and it’s a very moving example of boyhood friendship. I am so pleased that they went with friendship rather than a romance in this movie, because it’s just something so unique and moving.

I feel like I saw a very unique film and I can only recommend it to everybody. It’s not going to change your life, but it will put a smile on your face and warm your heart. Absolutely what a Netflix night movie should do.

My Rating: 7/10

Dunkirk (2017)

dunkirk-poster

  • Directed by Christopher Nolan
  • Starring Fionn Whitehead, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy
  • Written by Christopher Nolan
  • Action, War
  • Rated PG-13
  • 106 mins
  • 21 July 2017

Synopsis

Dunkirk tells the story of the evacuation of British soldiers from the beach at Dunkirk during World War 2.

How’s the Story?

The story of Dunkirk is a really interesting, very emotional story that I had never actually heard of before. I’m sure it’s a matter of nationality, but Dunkirk isn’t the story that I think of when I think of beaches and World War 2. I had never heard this happened and upon seeing the trailer for the movie, I was really excited about getting a new take on World War 2 history in film. I love war movies and I love World War 2 history, so this movie was right in my wheelhouse.

The result is good story but there’s a lot of the plot that makes no sense. I’ll expand on this in the writing/directing section because there is a difference in story and plot as any writer/film lover can tell you.

How’s the Acting?

The acting is really good in this film. There’s less of it than I expected, which I’ll get into in the next section (as well as clarifying the part in the story section), but what of it there is is really good.

The biggest shocker to me is that Harry freaking Styles was probably my favorite part of this movie. I never in my life thought Harry Styles would be the standout performance of this film, and yet he was a scene-stealer for sure. Probably the best performance was Kenneth Branagh, but well, he’s Kenneth Branagh so that was only to be expected.

That said, I will give one acting gripe, and that is that James D’Arcy was wasted in this. So disappointed.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

Here’s where the negatives come in: This movie is just poorly written. It is. I know everybody is going to have my guts on Twitter, but it’s just so badly written it’s amazing.

What exactly is the time continuum in this film? Why was it always daytime for the pilots and civilians but Cillian Murphy saved the beach boys (I’m giving everybody group names because you never learn any of their names besides George and Mr. Dawson that I caught) from what was supposedly the LAST ship at night, which then raises the question how the hell did he sail out into the channel on another ship if that was the last ship that he saved those boys from? WHERE DID YOU COME FROM, CILLIAN MURPHY? ARE THERE TWO OF HIM?! WERE THEY MEANT TO BE TWINS?

I’m sure there was meant to be something to show the audience how time is passing, but it didn’t come through at all. It just annoyed me and took me out of the story because I was trying to figure out what the hell the sequence of events actually was.

There are so many other small things I could touch on, but I won’t exhaust you all with my negatives. Just suffice it to say this movie was poorly written, above all else, because it failed to make me care on a personal level about any of these characters. There were moments where it seemed to try to make me care on a personal level, but the only reason I cared about anybody was because they’re human beings and I didn’t want them to die. I didn’t give a shit about any of the soldiers on any other level. I didn’t now them, I didn’t feel like there was any connection to them as characters, I didn’t care about the pilots or even Mr. Dawson and the boys. George is the only one that has any sort of character development and that was so sloppily done it felt kind of like how Arrival wedged in Jeremy Renner suddenly having romantic feelings for this woman he had shown zero interest in romantically (that was my sole gripe with that movie, unlike George in this one).

This movie is a good plot with a good story, but there are no real characters, which makes me so frustrated, because that ruins what otherwise is a phenomenal piece of film-making, which takes us to the positive section!

How’s the Cinematography?

This movie is beautiful. There is nothing about the visual elements of this film that aren’t absolutely magnificent. I envy everyone who saw this in 70mm, because I bet it was mind-blowing. The dogfight sequences were the best I’ve seen possibly ever, the scenes on the beach were just so blindingly well shot, the lighting was spectacular in every single scene, the scenes in the water were beautiful, and the coloration alone made me want to weep tears of film nerd joy.

This movie was like taking Star Wars: The Force Awakens ‘s perfect use of color, and Arrival ‘s landscape shots, and Pride and Prejudice‘s light work and put it all together to make something so perfectly shot that it will be a movie I remember the visuals from for probably the rest of my life.

Is It Worth Watching?

I’m gonna be selective about this and say that I would recommend this to film nerds, but the average moviegoer will probably be kinda bored. This movie is just going to either be hit or miss for the viewer. Even though I am a film nerd and I am glad I saw it, I probably won’t ever see it again because I just wasn’t engaged on a personal level.

Technically, it was a damn near perfect film visually. The sound wasn’t so great, though, to be honest. I don’t have an audio section with my format, but this movie had shit sound mixing. Now that someone taught me the difference in sound design and sound mixing, I can say this movie has excellent sound design and totally horrible sound mixing. Nothing is more frustrating than being so deafened by almost real-life levels of loud gunshots and then having no idea what anybody says because it’s quiet and mumbled after your hearing has adjusted to explosions and gunshots that could easily be in the theatre with you.

Most importantly and where this film fails the most, I want to care about characters for more than just being humans I want to live, and that shouldn’t be a big ask. I cared no more about the beach boys or the civilians or Cillian Murphy or the pilots than I did every man on that beach, you know? They gave me zero reason to care for them as individuals rather than ‘people’. And that’s just a failure at storytelling in my opinion. You cannot have any work of fiction that fails to give you an emotional connection to your characters beyond ‘I don’t want people to die’ to make you root for them. It just doesn’t work.

So basically great movie if you ignore the writing, shit movie if you ignore the film-making.

It’s kind of like porn for film-makers: There’s LOTS to look at and almost too much to listen to, and there is a story unfolding, but you don’t really give a care in the world about the people in it.

I wanted so badly to score this film 7/10, but the more I think about it, I just can’t. I can’t do it. I’m sorry guys, but I can’t.

My Rating: 6/10

The Big Sick (2017)

(HAVE ANOTHER INCREDIBLY LATE AND INCREDIBLY LACK-LUSTER REVIEW!!!)

the-big-sick-poster

  • Directed by Michael Showalter
  • Starring Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano
  • Written by Emily V. Gordon, Kumail Nanjiani
  • Comedy, Romance
  • Rated R
  • 120 mins.
  • 14 July 2017

Synopsis

A couple struggle with cultural differences and break up, but shortly after the woman becomes critically ill and must be put into a medically induced coma, bringing the man to her side and into the path of her parents, all of whom have to navigate the difficulties of their situation together while someone they love is incredibly ill.

How’s the Story?

I love this story because it’s based on the real life of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, who I have known of for a long time. He’s a great comedian and I’ve seen him and his wife together a few times and always have that ‘awww they’re so cute’ reaction. Learning about the coma situation made me go, ‘oh wow!’ and even if this is a fictionalized retelling of that event in their lives, it’s something you can really feel.

The way this movie tackles cultural differences in an interracial relationship is so beautifully done and I really loved how this story unfolded.

How’s the Acting?

The acting is really good. I’ve only ever seen Kumail Nanjiani doing stand-up, actually. I know he has been in movies before, but I’ve never seen any, so I was really surprised by how good of an actor he is. I’ve never heard of Zoe Kazan before this, but she did a great job. I was also really impressed by Holly Hunter in this film. Not to say Ray Romano was bad, but Holly Hunter really felt more true in her performance of the two of them.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

The writing for this movie has so much heart and depth that even in scenes where the comedy should feel forced or out of place, it isn’t. It’s just perfectly integrated. This movie had such a good flow that it’s kind of amazing that it could be so long and not feel so long.

How’s the Cinematography?

I’m a big fan of the simplicity with which this movie is filmed. I love the feeling of ‘truth’ that you get from how straight-forward and simple the camera work on this movie is. It feels raw and intimate and this would have been so easy to ruin with the wrong color palettes and the wrong lighting. The balance for how this movie is shot is really a character in it’s own way, because it would not have been the same movie without the choices that were made on some of the tiniest things to do with the film-making.

Is It Worth Watching?

This was just a beautiful story, a beautiful film, and something very powerful and moving. The comedy is spot on, it has so much heart, and the only things that I didn’t entirely love were mostly some of the pacing in the first third.

It wasn’t a bad first third by any means, it just felt kind of weird. I still loved this movie, weird pacing at the start or not, but once you get into the second act, this movie is money. It’s just fucking perfect. I cannot say much more without spoilers, but it’s just such a shocking winner.

Two weeks before this movie went wide-release, I hadn’t even heard of it, I only saw it was coming out because I caught Kumail Nanjiani on a late night talk show, and then by the time it came out where I could see it, it was all that anybody was talking about. At the start of this year, I never would’ve guessed a Kumail Nanjiani movie would be in my top 5 movies of the year, but here we are!

My Rating: 8/10

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

I would like to preface this stupidly late review by saying I AM A FAILURE AND I AM SORRY! *clears throat* Anyways….

spider_man_poster

  • Directed by Jon Watts
  • Starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton
  • Written by Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley
  • Action, Comedy, Superhero
  • PG-13
  • 133 mins.
  • 7 July 2017

Synopsis

Peter Parker may be a small-time superhero who got a taste of the big leagues working with the Avengers, but he’s also still a fifteen year old boy. Peter has to deal with the struggles of being a loser even at a ‘Nerd school’ and having a secret double-life as a neighborhood hero.

How’s the Story?

For once, it wasn’t another origin story! I think the best thing about the story told in this version is that it isn’t another reboot origin story, it focuses on this kid living his life while secretly being a superhero. I also really loved that the focus involved something so typical in real life: people not taking teenagers seriously even when something is seriously wrong. It was such a better story than I expected it to be.

How’s the Acting?

I’ve never seen Tom Holland in anything before this other than Civil War and he barely even counted in that. I am astounded by how good of an actor he is. There is something about this kid that is so special. I had no idea he could possibly deliver that performance.

And Michael Keaton is Michael Keaton. If he disappointed me, I’d be shocked.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

I love the way this film is written and directed. There are so many moments where this movie reminded me of a ‘family friendly’ Deadpool in the way that they are blindingly funny little one-liners that rely entirely upon the delivery, which is all down to direction. A good example of this (that will make no sense if you haven’t seen it, since I don’t want to do spoilers) would be the part where Peter is talking to “Karen” and asks how long it’s been and she says it’s been 37 minutes.

That scene culminating in that line had the entire theatre I was in rolling in laughter, and these tiny intricacies are what makes the humor in this movie work SO WELL. Writing and direction manage to turn this good movie into a great one.

How’s the Cinematography?

While Marvel movies rarely blow my mind with the cinematography because I’m not the biggest fan of all the CGI fight scenes (not that I dislike it, just that I don’t care if it’s good or bad), I really did enjoy a few of the scenes here. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the plane sequence, it felt kind of sloppy and disjointed, but the ferry scene was pretty well done visually.

So I’d say the cinematography in this movie works well enough, I have no major complaints.

Is It Worth Watching?

I am not the biggest fan of Spider-Man as a character. In fact, I didn’t really like ANY of the previous Spider-Man films. I know people suck Spider-Man 2’s dick all the time in the world of film-fans, but I thought it was ‘meh’. THAT is how not into Spider-Man I am.

And yet this movie made me CARE about Peter Parker. This movie made me like him. This movie gave him depth and gave me a reason to feel for him in a way that I’ve never really experienced before. Peter as a friend and as a nephew and as a student were all things that gave him life and he wasn’t just ‘this whiny kid that doesn’t want the responsibility of being a superhero’. He was charming and flawed as a person and very believable. I think finally the reason this one works so well is because Peter Parker is a 15 year old child who acts like a 15 year old child (and looks like one instead of a 35 year old man they’re passing off as a teenager) in a way that makes me believe in him like I never have before. It’s just brilliant.

Beyond Peter, I absolutely enjoyed what little there was of Aunt May. I wanted more of her! I loved Ned so much. Oh my God, I could watch an entire movie that’s just about Peter and Ned navigating the pressures of high school. I even liked the girl Peter likes in this movie, she was so adorable and sweet! Even the dick kid that’s mean to Peter, he was funny and not overly horrible, so you cared whether he lived or died even if you secretly wanted to see Spider-Man web him to a wall and leave him there for a while.

And I really enjoyed Michael Keaton’s character. There is a lot I can’t say because it would be a spoiler, but I believed him as a character by the end. Marvel movies have had some pretty weak villains lately, not in performance but in their whole scheme, but this guy is probably the best villain since Pierce in Winter Soldier.

I just really had nowhere near the expectations going into this film as what the final result delivered upon. I expected this movie to be a 7 at best and instead I’m giving this movie a solid 9, I was so amazed at how good it was.

My Rating: 9/10

Ten Year Plan (2015)

movieposter

Enjoy a somewhat drunk review from me as apology for not writing my reviews this weekend yet! TOMORROW FOR SURE! YELL AT ME ON TWITTER IF YOU HAVE TO!

  • Directed by J. C. Calciano
  • Starring Jack Turner, Michael Adam Hamilton
  • Written by J. C. Calciano
  • Romance
  • PG-13
  • 90 mins
  • 2 June 2015

Synopsis

Best friends agree that if they’re still both single in 10 years they’ll get together, one of which is obsessed with finding prince charming and getting married and the other who is a giant slut who doesn’t do the same dude twice unless its in the same night.

How’s the Story?

It’s Made of Honor but gay basically and without Scotland and Patrick Dempsey.

How’s the Acting?

It’s pretty shit, I think I could do a better job and I’m a stage actor, but whatever, it has tons of basic white dudes being super gay so yay!

How’s the Writing/Directing?

Also not so great, but it’s super adorable and for gay films it’s decent.

How’s the Cinematography?

Also pretty horrible but still, tons of adorable gayness which is super rare so who cares if it sucks?

Is It Worth Watching?

ABSOLUTELY! So here’s the thing: Happy gay films are rarely good quality. This movie had kinda good chemistry between the actors and the script wasn’t atrocious and it was SO HAPPY AND GAY! Happy gay stuff is super rare, okay, so happy gay romcom is WONDERFUL!

Listen, sixths movie had a gay cop whose straight partner was 100% cool with him talking about dudes he hooked up with on Grindr and taking him to gay bars and shit. Do you know how MONUMENTALLY RARE that is in basically ANTYHING???

Happy gay things with happy endings and sweet stories that treat the gayness like just normal life not a plot device is so rare and this was 100% something that works with a guy and a girl not two guys. It’s literally a less good version of Made of Honor with two dudes and I loved it and I hope you all watch it cause it’s amazing.

You have to compare gay movies to other gay movies not other movies in general, so compared to most gay movies this movie is SO GOOD and it’s on Netflix so go watch it you won’t regret that at all!

My Rating: 8/10

The House (2017)

house

  • Directed by Andrew Jay Cohel
  • Starring Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas
  • Written by Brendan O’Brien
  • Comedy
  • Rated R
  • 88 mins.
  • 30 June 2017

Synopsis

After the town’s usual college scholarship fund runs out of money, parents Scott and Kate must pay for their daughter Alex’s college education out of pocket… only they have no money. Inspired by a vacation with a friend going through hard times, Scott and Kate turn their friend’s house into an illegal casino in order to make the money they need to send Alex to college.

How’s the Story?

I was honestly surprised how much more STORY to this there was than I expected. I figured it was going to be pretty cold, with little connection to the family, and just a bunch of fun. While it was still pretty fun, this movie had more of a story than that, and I really enjoyed that. It was still pretty short and simple of a story, but it took it from ‘random slapstick comedy’ to ‘I am invested in their success’, which is definitely a step up from my expectations.

How’s the Acting?

It’s nothing too bad. Generally I think, while SUPER funny, Will Ferrell is a pretty bad actor, so for him to do a pretty okay job, I call that a success. I find myself wondering where the hell Jeremy Renner came from, because this is not the caliber movie I generally associate him with, and his performance was kinda crap because he’s a good actor in a far different film than his usual. Amy Poehler is great here, but she’s rarely anything less than great, even in shitty movies, so I’m not surprised.

How’s the Writing/Directing?

The writing here is good. It’s not the funniest movie I’ve ever seen, and I really expected it to be funnier, but since it has an actual story to more of an extent than I also expected, it balances out. The jokes are pretty good, if not great, so it’s got its worth.

Most importantly, however, I think where this movie falls down is the directing. I feel like the direction isn’t as consistent as it needed to be. There are a few choices that are kind of odd to me. However, overall, the direction is serviceable and does what it needs to do to keep the movie from going too far to the ‘wtf’ side of inconsistent.

How’s the Cinematography?

It isn’t much of a ‘visual’ type of movie, so I don’t have too much to say here, but I will say, the boxing scenes were really fun how they were filmed. There were some fun ways that the camera was used to make it feel more like you’re actually watching your drunk friends kick each other’s ass.

Is It Worth Watching?

While The House won’t be making too many Top 10 lists this year, it’s a perfectly enjoyable comedy. If you don’t like simple, un-serious comedy, you probably won’t like it, but if you do like just some good laughs with a decent story, this film will totally be worth seeing. I don’t at all regret the money I spent to sit in the movie theater, have a diet coke and some popcorn, and have a good laugh.

Most of all, if you’re into comedians, this film will have some very familiar faces that will probably make you smile no matter what you think about the movie as a whole. Some of my favorite ‘not-movie-star’ comics were in this movie and they all entertained me in their parts.

Though my review hasn’t exactly been glowing, I still have to reiterate that I enjoyed this movie and will definitely see it again when it inevitably plays on rotation at Comedy Central some day.

My Rating: 6/10
