I saw this movie at midnight and I was really high, however I have seen it again sober. So I think I can have a good perspective now after multiple viewings. This movie was also in my top ten most anticipated films for 2014 it was ranked number four. This film for me was a disappointment being a long time spider-man fan. The story was very disjointed and felt rushed kinda similar to how Spider-Man 3 was. There were way too many villains in this movie. Also there was no need for Paul Giamatti’s character his character continued to take me out of the movie when ever he was on screen. The positives it is a fun kinda silly Spider-Man and kids will love it. The tone also throughout the movie kept switching from romance to drama to almost a comedic tone. The actors did there part and were all on point. I especially loved Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn and of course from now on Andrew Garfield is the one and only Spiderman to me. I know there was a lot interference from the studio on this film so I don’t blame Marc Webb I have liked all his past efforts. I can only hope that Spider-Man 3 reinvigorates the franchise once again.
Alright as maybe some or none of you know. I was very much looking forward to this film this year. So much so I had it at the number one spot on my anticipated films for 2014. I had high standards for this film. It did not disappoint. To start things off visually the film is stunning and beautiful the cinematographer did a great job with all the shots and locations. Richard Ayoade is a great director and anybody who reads this should also go check out Submarine another film he made a few years ago. He shows his influences such as David Lynch and Terry Gilliam is the style and look of the dystopian future or present in the world of The Double. The narrative for some will be hard to follow it is not a commercial blockbuster. But I personally enjoyed every moment in this movie to the very end. To highlight Jesse Eisenberg’s performance in the film balancing to halves of one person is not a easy, but he pulls it off magnificently giving us the cowardly Simon James and then countering with the ever confident James Simon. If you enjoy more artsy movies or are a fan of Ayoade’s past films I suggest you check this movie out.
When you see she her and you don’t know how to react
but be sure she wants all of you
no matter who you are she will find you cute
you’ll talk and begin to like her
when she gets you roped in that’s when she takes hold
you never want to go back after that
the greatest feelings you have ever felt is it love
then you ask what happened to you
is this who I am now
touch the darkness and darkness touches you back
Who is who
what is real
why are we here
how do we know
hours lost in the night

at night what dark thoughts reside
how pleasing is black in a world of
Finally Can’t wait for this movie!!!!!!

A few days ago my school had a showing of Fruitvale Station. I attended this showing and was hour and half of emotions. This movie starring Michael B. Jordon is a emotional roller coaster. It is a day in the life of the character Oscar Grant he is 22 years old and you follow him throughout his daily routine. The reason this movie was so good is that it resonates with me because I am colored person and also because it is a different take on race. It is trying to show similarities between people of all color rather than just point out racism. The scene that stood out the most was when Oscar ran out into the street to help a dog that hit a car that really resonated with me.
