I won't get into too much detail in what the movie is about, but I can tell you that as I began watching it, it did a really great job in slowly reeling me in and about a quarter of the way through, had me hooked to the end! I probably would not buy this movie, unless it was on a super sale and would only leave it on t. . This is visceral filmmaking, introducing a wide array of new and emerging talents that we are excited to check in on in the future. Tatum got to act beside his wife once again after first meeting her on the set of Step Up. Chris Pratt drunk acting is top-shelf stuff. Ten years after graduating from high school, Jake is back in his hometown for his reunion, with his charming and supportive girlfriend by his side.
We can all relate to what you will see in this movie. The brilliance of these films is their adherence to completely submerging the viewer in a chaotic head-space in which we find logic becomes blurred. Their acclaimed self-titled debut album was released in the summer of 2015, produced by Grammy nominated producer Jay Joyce Cage The Elephant, Sleeper Agent , establishing them as a unique band that was here to stay. My husband and I rented this movie after reading several reviews by people on how funny it was. Everyone has his or her messes.
As one character states when the evening comes to a close 'We all have our messes' and nothing could be more true. And then there's Elise Kate Mara who always played it low in High School, but who Reeves remembers all too well as the girl who got away. Wishing he had never grown up, Cully drinks way too much at the reunion in order to relive high school days. The night unwinds in a funny way as each character builds on one relationship or another. His story and the chemistry between him and Mara was pretty intense. Anna still lords it over the once unpopular kids. You're happy to see some people, you're wowed by a few you never noticed before, and you're reminded of why you stayed away from a select few.
But Cronenberg directs his actors in Cosmopolis to be cold and precise — to be dislodged from a central humanity to which we are all conditioned to relate. Even if it seems like too much information is stacked up into your brain so fast in the beginning, keep on watching till the end because all the pieces fit in nicely together to set up one of the most beautiful movies that you might stumble upon. It could have fallen into many clichés, but to me it stayed in the real point of view with 1 or 2 exceptions I would give it a 8. To think that someone wrote a script for this and Hollywood actually wanted to make the movie is pretty funny. Overall, I would recommend this movie to most people — especially anyone in their mid twenties to mid thirties.
Surprisingly, the filmmaker who followed up the wonderful Days of Heaven a whopping two decades later with his second world-war drama The Thin Red Line, has recently been accused of needing to slow things down by audiences. Where Pattinson is narrowed, Giamatti is broadened to the extreme. Or they could be places where the reminder you receive about your past is an extremely embarrassing one that could potentially corrupt current personal feelings or even have the one you married walking out on you. Teens may find it interesting to see adult characters looking back on their teen exploits, though the movie doesn't really make high school -- at least the high school the characters including teen faves and went to -- sound all that fun. This is a film about a group of classmates going to their ten year high school reunion. I truly cannot express how bad I felt this movie was. The characters are shown just following their hearts in the moment.
Each performance is handled with care and pushed to its boundaries. The best part is, they all look and feel like they could have been high school classmates. There is always someone hiding from their past, others bragging to conceal what is really going on in their lives, and the drinking. Robert Pattinson is entirely unrelatable, but unendingly interesting, because although he is distant he is never dry or boring. I loved Isaac's character and his song. While this might be a downer, it still seems a strange omission.
It'll be somewhat of a mellow one throughout but it will be enjoyable and it would certainly be able to bring back those high school memories. Their characters have moved on to other people since a flame that lasted throughout high school. And feeling that connected to that many characters in this short of an amount of time is no small feat, so for that more so than anything else, this movie is worth a visit. The characters are shown just following their hearts in the moment. And if there's ever a question of Mara's charisma compared to her sister's typically more acclaimed acting, 10 Years puts that to rest.
Inside it there is a compelling story and Jamie Linden as director just put the ending in the right place. Not only is the story given away early on, but the characters are fairly stereotypical as well. Also the characters here have same portion and not focus in only one or two main problems. Jake and Jess Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum are happy but Jake can't gather the strength to give Jess the engagement ring he keeps in an envelope in his glove compartment he is distracted by his old flame Mary Rosario Dawson who is married to Paul Ron Livingston ; Marty and Aj Justin Long and Max Minghella were fast friends in high school but both think the other is the something they're not until a thwarted race to date the once luscious Anna Lynn Collins only to discover that she still lives a most unglamorous life in the same place where she lived as a school beauty queen on now a mother to two children the fathers of whom she doesn't know; former high school bully and complete slob Cully Chris Pratt embarrasses everyone with his drunken gross behavior and is only forgiven by his long suffering wife Sam Ari Graynor ; Reeves Oscar Isaac is one of the few who made it as a singer and meets up with the girl Elise Kate Mara about whom he wrote his popular song; the others have less story fleshed out - Scott Porter, Brian Geraghty, Aubrey Plaza, Aaron Yoo, Anthony Mackie among them. Her and Oscar Isaac are magnetic together in this film.
