Silver Linings Playbook

Great film illustrating the fact that everybody’s a little bit crazy. As my roommate says “Some people just function better than others.” Main characters Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence play their respectively fucked up parts beautifully and I am so proud of both of them. I’m not a big fan of Lawrence as a person but she impressed me with her cogent portrayal of a damaged woman in this film. Cooper was gorgeous as always and departed from his typical roles of a suave put together guy for this broken man suffering from multiple mental health issues.¬† On quests to fulfill their own goals and find silver linings moving forward from their traumas, the two find comfort in each other and realize their time together is the best therapy and also good ju ju for Cooper’s Dad, DeNiro’s Eagles. Great supporting cast in Jacki Weaver who played the ever worried, peace-keeping mother, Robert DeNiro the head of the house with his own touches of OCD and Superstition and Chris Tucker who brought just the right amount of comedic jail-breaking relief to the story. Never knew when he was going to pop up or if he was supposed to be there. Also, hey Julia Stiles! Where ya been, it’s good to see you. Well written and smartly executed, this is a movie that will make you think a little harder about your own eccentricities and remind us that everyone is dealing with something. It’s possible I appreciated this film more as a former Psych student with my fascination in how humans work and process things but i’d recommend it to anyone with emotions. Crazy as they are, I still envy Jennifer and Bradley’s relationship because they’ve found their compliments. I can only hope to find my crazy compliment someday.

Congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence for her Best Actress Golden Globe for Silver Linings Playbook.

Les Miserables

What can I say? It’s Les Mis, and a pretty fuckin’ fantastic rendition of it, in my humble opinion. Moving and powerful as intended; in fact both Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried moved me tears. Hugh Jackman is the perfect Jean Valjean, strong yet sensitive and caring, and I over heard more than one person in the theater say “Who knew Wolverine could sing?” I knew he had been on Broadway and had hosted the Tony’s so I had high hopes for him and I was not disappointed. Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter were excellent in their filthy roles of crooked inn keepers and had the most upbeat numbers. Their daughter Eponine¬†who grows into Samantha Barks, was powerful and relatable. I truly felt sorry for her and felt her emotions. Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne harmonize like angels, plain and simple. Their love story has been added to that category of loves I will always aspire to have. Love at first sight at it’s finest and torn apart as quickly as it started. Fortunately the fates, better known as Hugh Jackman, mend their rift and they live to sing another day in perfect harmony. We did not expect Redmayne to have the powerful pipes he did, but in retrospect weren’t surprised. His natural speaking voice is so deep and hakney that he projected a marvelous Marius. Only quibble about Redmayne’s singing was he made some odd faces and shakes holding his long notes, but for someone who is not a professional singer, he did very well. Amanda had already proven her singing chops in 2008’s Mamma Mia (Gawd I love that one!) and she continues to upset us by not producing an album. Even the children and Marius’ gang of revolutionaries were excellent. I can’t rave enough about the performances in this film and I feel they deserve every award they receive this season. It is a testament to the original show and the cinematography alone is worth seeing it for. That and the satisfaction of Russell Crowe’s character, Javert getting his due… Who’s your Master and Commander now sir!? I truly loved this movie and feel it was done with the respect it deserved. I do love a musical and these songs will be stuck in my head for ages now. Thanks alot Claude-Michel Sch√∂nberg! Go see it. Go now.

Gangster Squad

At it’s base, this is just¬† L.A. Confidential from a slightly different angle and with shiny new young attractive actors. Mickey Cohen, played by Sean Penn is even mentioned in passing in L.A. Confidential. That previous knowledge aside, this is a pretty great gangster movie. When Mickey moves from Chicago to LA and starts shakin’ things up, a couple non-corrupt cops in town assemble a crack team to take down the mob boss and clean up the streets in the city of angels. Side story; Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone¬† rekindle their Crazy, Stupid, Love¬† amidst the dangers of Emma being Mickey’s kept woman. Of course no mobster takes disobedient cops lying down and when Mickey figures out whats happening and who are to blame (including his crimson companion) we reach the pinnacle all-out street war so infamous of the time. Surprisingly non-violent for the genre there’s only one death that actually bothered me and that’s mainly because I just don’t like seeing this particular actor harmed. Won’t tell you who because it was an unfortunate development that I wouldn’t want to rob you of. I love the time period and how well they recreated it’s simple yet fancy atmosphere. All the men look sharp and the ladies classy and I always enjoy colloquial quips like “bend my arm” instead of “smoke a cigarette”. I recommend this film to any fan of the gangster scene; It has a solid story, eloquent script and a compelling score.

Best Line:

Ryan to Emma: “Don’t go.”

Emma: “Don’t let me.”

COME ON. Who doesn’t wanna say that!?
