I know Robin Williams is considered to be an all-time classic, but… wow, what a movie! We’ll be talking about this soon!
Nothing beats like a good ol’ stretch in the morning after a good nap. I stretched and wiggled my tail, cleaned my whiskers and search for a bowl of milk. And what a lovely caretaker the Director is, really; he was already up and had already put a fresh serving of milk for me. I took a few licks and went to find him so as to thank him for it.
I found him lying on his bed and watching a movie: Short term 12. I wondered about the title, sounded like a crime movie honestly. Well, it was not really like that though. The story revolved mainly around a young woman, Grace (Brie Larson) who worked as a supervising staff member of a residential treatment facility along with her boyfriend, Mason (John Gallagher Jr.). The two did their best to take care of the kids that lived there and attempted to calm their troubled souls (sounds like I’m exaggerating but once you see the movie you’ll understand).
The film is heavier than it seems to be honest, but it does make you feel like you can do so much more for those around you and for those that you really care about. It’s a movie that makes you feel maybe depressed once it ends, but after that, it makes you feel so motivated to do something, not only for others, but also for yourself.
The cinematography was quite pleasing as well, apart from one slight thing: the moving camera from time to time. Then again, that is something that is of a personal preference – if you are going to give the film a realistic view of it, then go ahead and shake, but for me, it was sometime a little too much to bear (I had just woken up as well). The Director seemed to like it however, he mumbled to himself that there was more than what met the eye with the cinematography and the camera movement and all that.
A movie that is worth watching – trust me, time flies away, the movie makes you want to know more, and the ending was actually quite satisfying.
So… You ready? :D
The first comment I will make about this movie is just one word: “WOW”.
One of the greatest action movies I have seen in a long time.
The movie basically revolves around a young lad who has taken the wrong turn in his choices, more or less because he just can’t be asked to be a good boy – though he tries. Then comes along a gentleman(Collin Firth), wearing a suit, and kicking *cough cough* ass-booty. And so, somehow, like this, begins our story of – yap – hunting down evil (Samuel Jackson). [I’m not gonna say anymore cause the trailer already shows enough of that.]
The movie keeps all the good-ol’ little techniques that you could spot in good-ol’ spy movies (like camera zooming, close-ups and gadgets) while at the same time using modern little techniques and lines (seriously, I have not seen a fight scene carried out for so long in one scene… if you see the movie, you will understand what I mean).
NO JOKES: this is one of those film that you have to watch; AND if you watch it, definitely worth watching again. And again. And again. And again.
This movie… this movie! The Director was going to go see this movie, and it had been so long since I gotten to see a movie in the theatre that I just had to sneek in as well (without the Director knowing or else no crunchies for me!). But *wow* I HIGHLY reccommend it! I’ll only say one thing: this is definitely going up on my top 10… maybe even top 5!
Review coming soon.
To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this, but, hey! It’s comedy, I’ll give it a shot.
All is said by the title of the video… enjoy!
