Avenging-Hobbits


A nerd who thought it would be cool to, with the help of a few equally insane buddies adapt the entire Marvel Universe (with some DC Comics thrown in for kicks) with My Little Pony...wish me luck

Review: The Killers (1964) · 10:50pm Jul 8th, 2016

A stripped down, no-nonsense adaptation of Ernest Hemmingway's 1927 short-story, which had previously been adapted in 1946 by Robert Siodmak, and starring Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner, the 1964 version of The Killers is an effective and enjoyably straightforward film noir, directed with smooth efficiency by Don Siegel (Dirty Harry), and performed with skill by a clutch of great actors, such as Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, John Cassavetes, and, in his final role before entering politics,

Review: Finding Dory (2016) · 6:35am Jun 25th, 2016

Finding Dory stands as a rapturously moving, deeply heartfelt sequel to one of Pixar's best films, and, while building on the structure and characters of the previous film, manages to take itself in new directions, without ever loosing the endearing sense of heart and soul, and the message of family that defined Finding Nemo.

Review: Enemy (2013) · 7:58pm Jun 24th, 2016

SPIDERS.

The best possible way to try and describe Denis Villeneuve's psychological thriller Enemy is as some strange, aberrant, yet utterly absorbing blend of David Lynch Lost Highway, Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and Ingmar Bergman's Persona. Except with duplicate Jake Gyllenhaals, and gigantic spiders.

Review: On the Waterfront (1954) · 12:36am Jun 22nd, 2016

On the Waterfront is director Elia Kazan's stellar answer to the wave of criticism he faced in the aftermath of his testfying in front of the HUAC, and in creating this film, Kazan gave us a timeless masterpiece, with a central message about the power of truth in the face of adversity that, more than sixty years later, still manages to speak truth.

Review: Hail, Caesar! (2016) · 9:35pm Jun 21st, 2016

I can now say, with much pride and satisfaction, to have seen every single feature length film that the Coen Brothers have made.

I finish my dauntless trek through their filmography with this, their seventeenth, and most recent feature, which plays as a laid back, droll self deprecating look at the mighty dream factory that was Hollywood at the very heights of the storied Studio Area.

Yo, remember when Bryan Singer made good movies, and not just increasingly crappy sequels to subpar superhero movies?

Review: True Grit (2010) · 2:25am Jun 18th, 2016

When I first saw True Grit not long after its release, I didn't quite understand it. Here was a film that seemed to be a straightforward revenge tale, but with an ending that, at the time, seemed a bit of a downer. However, I have now revisited the film, and have done so with a far better knowledge of the style that the Coen Brothers have carefully cultivated, and now I can say that I have come to an understanding with the film, and in doing so, have found yet another excellent western
