    John Wick- Stylized revenge flick with a lil' dash of car porn. Lots of fun, not too hardcore or gory or anything, either.

    Birdman

    Really great. The camerawork in this is really cool as the whole movie is basically shot to look like a one-take tracking shot. The camera is always in motion, not in an FNL cinema verite type way, but rather in smooth constant movements that just kind of float around every scene. I've never seen anything else that looks like this. It's also got this layered story, which seems to be full of meta commentary about some of the actors involved (Keaton, Norton).

    Pretty nice change of pace for Inarritu as well. Amores Perros/21 Grams/Babel/Biutiful all feel like they came from the same director, but this is a real departure. If you saw this without knowing who directed, you wouldn't guess it was the same guy as those other films.
    So Russell...what do you love about music? To begin with, everything.

    I really hope this makes it to LV, but I'm starting to have my doubts.

    I saw Fury and generally agree with PAC's review. I cringed throughout the movie, but the characters were amazing. IMO, this is a must-see. I can't wait to watch it again so I can pick up on everything I miss.

    You want to watch it again so you can get things you missed? You mean like hearing the same recorded words again and again? Interesting. Some would say "bat shit crazy", not me, but some would.

As a kid, I loved movies like The Guns of Navarone, The Longest Day, Patton, The Dirty Dozen, and the older but entertaining John Wayne-type war films (Flying Leathernecks, Sands of Iwo Jima, etc). But those movies were very sanitized, blood was rare, and deaths tended to be clean and noble. There was a reason my dad and his fellow veterans never talked about the War, and why they rolled their eyes at most war movies.

    Although there were a few “war is hell” films even back in the day, things really changed with Saving Private Ryan, whose Omaha Beach scene was groundbreaking and very real. Fury takes this to an even grittier level, where every battle scene is covered in muck and blood, and no death is ennobling. Heads and limbs being blown off, soldiers putting guns to their heads to end their misery, finding pieces of dead comrades--we've seen it before but perhaps not as much or as relentlessly as here. The movie follows the crew of a tank that’s been through Africa, France and Belgium, and is now in Germany, a few weeks before the end of the war. There’s a lot to talk about here, including a very discomfiting scene involving Brad Pitt and the newest member of his team (a more likeable version of Ryan’s Upham, whose conscience makes the rest of the team angry and very threatening) with two women in a captured German town. There’s also a small but interesting theme involving horses at the beginning, the middle and end of the film. Directed by David Ayer (Training Day), like his previous movies this one doesn’t sugar coat anything. It’s a very good film, but it’s not especially entertaining. In fact, it’s nasty, brutish and long. Definite thumbs up, but you may want to leave the wife at home.
    you should consider a new career in reviewing movies. this is a really great post.

    The wife and I played hooky on Thursday and caught Fury. PAC's review is spot on.

    Not in my own voice, though.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Don't be so sure.
