(au) wrote: Terrible slasher movie with rubbish actors. Nothing good about this film at all, not sure how I managed to watch it to the end
(it) wrote: The script might be bit thin, but the performances and overall feel of the movie makes it a emotional and satisfying watch.

(au) wrote: This is on the low side of 3 1/2 stars. Ultimately, for a lot of movies, it's difficult to articulate what makes them outstanding or lacking; a lot of my favorite movies just have a certain quality to them that makes them so perfect for me, and movies I don't connect to as much aren't particularly bad, just somehow lacking an essential quality that would make me extremely invested. That's how I felt for most of the running time of Rocket Science, a movie that had a lot of elements I liked without being standout.Maybe it's partly that I've seen so many indie movies that something like this seems trite instead of genuine, even if it is genuine. There were a lot of trademark indie coming of age movie signs in this movie, whether it's quirky offbeat characters (like the weird friend, Heston) or the take-charge girl the main character is crushing on, or the idea of singing at the climax to overcome stuttering. None of these are inherently offensive or overdone (the last one isn't something I've specifically seen in movies before), but there's something about them that can be a little grating and cutesy. I also spotted some Wes Anderson influence, maybe some of the comic timing or the loud score.Luckily, the movie has a lot going for it. The cast is pretty great, with Anna Kendrick as a precocious debater who was pretty damn unlikable while still having a certain appeal you could see on Hal's face. That said, by far the standout is Reece Thompson. For the first half of the movie, he kind of seemed like the typical shy white kid who stars in every indie movie, but by the end he'd really grown on me, and I was surprisingly invested in his story.Overall, I think it was the ending that won me over. I started liking the story more once Hal teamed up with Ben (Nicholas D'Agosto, radiating warmth, friendliness, and wisdom), a dynamic that worked really well, but I was kind of wary of a cheesy ending with Hal singing his whole monologue to overcome the stutter. It turned out to work pretty well because of Thompson's great delivery and generally shitty singing; you looked so vulnerable, and at a certain point it's hard to get too bitter about indie tropes when the actors carry it so genuinely. Better, though, Hal and Ben got kicked out of the competition. When that first happened, it seemed very abrupt and unsatisfying, but as it set in, I grew to really appreciate that they didn't go the obvious route; they didn't have the singing thing actually work, and they didn't have Hal get together with Ginny at the end. I really liked how their story ended, with Hal giving Ginny the finger, one recurring element I was surprised to always find funny. (That said, Ginny was a surprisingly evil character once she dropped out of his school and was revealed to be manipulating him. I would've liked a little more nuance, especially because her last statement that it was hard for her to betray Hal was kind of bullshit.)There was one scene in particular that made the whole last act work for me, though. It's when Hal enters the pizza shop and orders a pizza, stuttering quite a bit but eventually triumphantly getting the word 'pizza' out. That whole scene is funny and touching, and it just pushed the movie over into solid 'I like this' territory.Like I said at the start of this review, it's hard to classify what works and doesn't in a movie like this. Ultimately, people react differently to different things. So I'm not sure what it was about this movie specifically, but I wasn't enormously invested in Hal's relationship with Ginny, and I wasn't enormously invested in the ongoing desire to debate successfully, even though I did like his character and actor. But those pizza scenes worked on me in a way I didn't anticipate until that last one happened. I'm not sure what it is about that specific subplot that hit me, but it did, and it made a big difference.

(fr) wrote: Another incredibly popular novel turned movie. Very entertaining but the story deserves a longer forum to develop. Love this movie (it's KDW, how could I not) but the story is best suited as a Drama. The title song "Go Baek" or Confessions is a keeper.
(ru) wrote: Nothing spectacular here, but it's solid enough to have kept me entertained for 90mins. Mix Alien with The Thing and throw in James Spader, plus some pretty fucking cool special effects on the alien ship at the end, and you get this adequate Sci-Fi Channel original.
(br) wrote: Lola runs fast throughout the movie, leaving behind her enough concentration of adrenaline to make you realize what a good thriller looks like!
(fr) wrote: This was a good movie to waste an afternoon with. There were some laughs and there was some other interesting stuff. I thought Andy Dick was pretty funny as a sassy gay man, and Jack Black was a perfect cliche of himself. Favorite part for sure is the 80s party scene.

(us) wrote: Thi sis a movie with a very ultra low-budget but very creepy little horror film about a small town where the inhabitants are overly fond of staring at the moon and eating raw meat. It has a nicely pervading feeling of dread.
(br) wrote: An ambitious, perhaps to a fault, piece of work from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson, Magnolia is full of compelling stories, unique characters, and superb performances from the ensemble cast, resulting in yet another challenging and audacious film for serious movie goers.
