Anyone seen Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal? I haven't seen it myself yet but all the reviews I read so far were positive.


NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

BIRDMAN (2014)



A lot of effort went into Birdman's cinematography but otherwise the plot is meaningless.

THE BOY NEXT DOOR

Just watched it in the theaters just because Ryan Guzman in it! He shows tons of skin and at the end gets killed! Overall however, the movie wasn't that great and the plot wasn't so good.

Just finished the series ending of Mad Men, starring Jon Hamm and his Hammaconda. It was great.
The ending may be one of the most perfect in television history. Don Draper finds the path to a glimmer of peace, and the ad industry immediately exploits it, so brilliantly that we didn't even know we were being subverted.

Just finished watching this film, fresh from the theater and I must say it was very good! :excellent:

Loved the performances of everyone, especially Skarsgård's, as Pennywise the Clown.

This is the 2nd adaptation from Stephen King's novel, the first being a mini-television series, which was considered a classic the horror genre. The newly released film is also considered as one of the best adaptations from King's work, and not to mention the highest grossing film adaption, of King's, to date. I loved the intensity and atmosphere of the film.

:5 stars: Bravo!
