I study Cinema and Journalism, I love Stanley Kubrick and movies with zombies and explosions and blood and sex and car chases and kung fu.

The core relationship didn’t leave a huge emotional impact on me, but I loved the visuals and was especially big on the silent cinema stunt montage at the end. Tarsem’s Immortals had the same effect on me – I loved the visuals (even the bloody violence had a certain grace to it), but it still felt cold and emotionless. Never saw Mirror Mirror but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the same thing. The Fall is definitely the closest he has come to depth and emotion as a director, but it still fell a little short for me. I’ll have to revisit soon and see if I respond to it more after reading your article.
I’ve been revisiting old Disney animated movies upon seeing Maleficent (wasn’t a big fan of the movie but at least something good came out of it). This Hellfire song is the one that left the biggest mark on me, as I had such a vastly different experience hearing it now than back when I was 7 when I first saw it. Really one of the best things Disney has done, villain song or otherwise. Quite enjoyed your analysis.
I really hope Happy Endings gets a resurrection. I’m not really into throwing Coach back into New Girl, I’d rather see Wayan’s Jr. as Brad again.
I was really surprised by how good CW’s Arrow ended up being. It has some of the best action and fight choreography on TV right now.
I loved that scene too. I think Nebraska is Alexander Payne’s best movie, so it’ll definitely be appearing on my Favorites of 2013 list, but i didn’t think it fit in with the group of movies above.
Oh wow I totally saw You’re Next and completely forgot about it! That was a great moment you mentioned though, would’ve fit in really well with this article. Haven’t seen Bad Grandpa but I really like the other three movies you mentioned, they don’t fall into “forgettable” territory for me.
The World’s End is one of my favorite movies of the year, I saw it twice in theaters. Nothing forgettable about it.
I just appreciate the way it’s a magic trick that actually works on the movie’s audiences, not just characters within the movie. I thought it was clever, and it drew me into the film’s world.
