The Disaster Artist
This film felt so surreal, from watching The Room (and enjoying it immensely) to watching The Disaster Artist and seeing how it got made and how hard they worked to get this done, the passion Greg and Tommy had.
It's actually a truly genuine film, showcasing two friends who just want to make a movie.
This film is from the Franco Brothers and Seth Rogen, and we all know the reputation that comes with them. But throw all that out the window, this film is funny and I mean HILARIOUS but it's so much more than that. It's definitely a dramedy with comedic scenes mixed in, but this is because of Tommy Wiseau, who is so magnificently played by James in what is probably his best performance to date. Tommy is such a weird, mysterious, eccentric, and strange individual that his words and actions and his weird passion to make a film come off as comedic. And James really pulls off becoming Wiseau, his mannerisms and voice is on point so much so it becomes creepy after a while, but still hilarious. He makes you feel empathy and sympathy towards him and his passion to make this film. However weird and strange it was it's the real Hollywood dream and he was able to get it done.
Its also amazing how well they recreated the look and feel of The Room. The actors, the set design, the lighting, the camera work, it's all perfect. It makes the film an impressive technical achievement in many regards; not simply a funny film with inspired casting and great performances.
Overall it's a hilarious and genuinely moving account of an insane true story. It makes you care about these people and their goal, regardless of how awful you may think The Room is, this is fantastic and heartfelt.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie review (SPOILER FREE)
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Anthony Daniels, Laura Dern, Gwendoline Christie and Benicio Del Toro
“It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
Ok, this is probably going to be the most vague and most confusing review I’ll ever have written. So, bear with me ‘cause I’m traversing on thin ice here, and I don’t wanna spoil anything for you guys.
So, let’s start talking about what I absolutely loved about The Last Jedi - the story and the direction. My biggest fear for this film was that it was just going to be a rehash of Empire Strikes Back, like how The Force Awakens was a rehash of A New Hope. Sure, I loved The Force Awakens, but I’m not afraid to admit that it was essentially A New Hope only with a fresh coat of paint. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The story here does traverse some familiar beats, and it is definitely darker than The Force Awakens, like how Empire Strikes Back was darker than A New Hope. However, it still has enough new and original story elements to make it stand out from the previous seven (eight, if you count Rogue One) films in the franchise.
It is also a more mature story that tackles some great, though-provoking themes, and the emotions here are undoubtedly richer and more complex than The Force Awakens. All this is due in part to the excellent direction and writing of Rian Johnson.
When they announced that Rian Johnson was taking over directing duties for the latest entry in the Star Wars series, I was beyond excited; Looper was a magnificent sci-fi film, and he is one talented filmmaker. So, for him to make a Star Wars film, that’s like a match-made in heaven. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
