50/50 critics and 69% of audience is more than half of people liking ithttp://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_great_gatsby_2013/
It appears my opinion is rather justified
I hate using Rotten Tomatoes to back up my feelings, but it's not just me finding it a pile of poo.
If you are implying i'm too dumb to appreciate good film and only like action flicks, you'd be very mistaken.
I really did enjoy it. To be honest I think the daughter weakness was over the top but a suprisingly interesting movie. I'd give it slightly less but 8/10 is still goodSavages - 8.5/10
I went into this preparing to being annoyed, especially by Blake Lively and Taylor Kitsch. To my utter surprise I was not only un-annoyed but actually captivated by their performances. This has to be the best work that they've ever done.
The other characters are great as well: Salma Hayak as a vicious drug lord who's only weakness is for her daughter, John Travolta as a slimy DEA agent with a dying wife (I'll be damned if he's not starting to resemble Mel Brooks), some dude I've never seen before as the third member of the menage-a-trois, and especially Benicio Del Toro as a sub-human cartel hit man; he is the true savage in this tale.
imo the "ending" is worthy of some pretty juicy debate. I'm inclined to believe that the test audiences had a hand in determining the final cut. But make no mistake - this is an enjoyable flick. Oliver Stone has absorbed some influences from Tarantino, and if this film is any indication it might be a good thing
Thats exactly how i felt. I got it as a random, ill watch this sometimes movie, ended up watching it and really enjoyed it. Your review hits it right on the head for how i felt about it.Got a chance to catch "End of Watch" last night. I agree with others that this one really snuck under the radar. It was a fantastic movie. Jake G and especially Michael Pena were incredible. The chemistry these two had was amazing. You literally felt like these two guys had known each other for years and were actually just two guys on the job.
Very gritty movie, the pacing was excellent, and just hit all the checkmarks of a great movie.
The "documentary" style camera work can definitely a turn off to some people. I know my wife would have been motion sick after the opening sequence, but overall it wasn't as bad as say Cloverfield or Chronicles.
At least you found out about it before it ends this coming season.
It's more drama than anything else. I found it boring.Is anyone planning on seeing "The Grandmaster"? I haven't been to the theater in a long, long time, but contemplating it for this film. I'm not one of those "ninja" movie fans, but two of favorite movies in the genre are "Hero" and "Kung Fu Hustle". This looks to be a combo of those two, in a way.
Looking forward to seeing reviews if anyone sees it.
Maybe too much violence porn isn't good for you?black hawk down - 10/10
i hadn't seen this movie since it was in the theater, and holy crap it was even better on my theater. from the moment they yelled irene it was like non stop action. if anybody has not seen this movie yet, do yourself a favor and watch it. i think i may have to watch another war movie right now because this movie got me hype.
