Average User Score: 8.8Jul 30, 2013Amazing film. Never watched a film that put me through so many different emotions, from happiness and hysterics to being on the verge of tears. Brilliantly done. Jack Nicholson deserves his Oscar for his role as RP McMurphy, as did Louise Fletcher for the evil Nurse Ratched.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Jun 29, 2013The funniest movie I have seen in a long time. I was a big fan of Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen especially before this and they were funny as hell, but not a patch on Danny McBride, he was on another level of funny. I also enjoyed the fact they played themselves and were able to just rip the hell out of each other, you wouldn't see many Hollywood actors doing that.
Go see this movie, now.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Jun 28, 2013The idea of this film I found to be absolutely fantastic. However, I feel it could have been executed better. I'd heard rave reviews about the film, reading them and from friends so I gave the film a try and found it to be very anti-climatic compared to the plot. To me, it seems like they thought the plot was good enough to make a hit film and not fill it with the right content.
I enjoyed it, just not as much as I thought I would.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Jun 24, 2013Very powerful film. Well done to Sam Mendes on his debut film. I love everything about this film, especially Kevin Spacey's performance as Lester Burnham and his fixation on his daughter's friend. There are so many fantastic things about this film. The cast, all brilliant and I believe Chris Cooper didn't get enough credit for his role as Col. Frank Fitts. The cinematography is very well done. The soundtrack is a stand out aspect of this film, just incredible.
One of my favourite films, just brilliant.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Jun 18, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Brilliant film. I've never really been a fan of western films but I wanted to see this because Tarantino is one of my favourite directors and the films he makes are just pure entertainment. My expectations were high for this but they were blown out of the water, absolutely loved it. Everything about this film was excellent.
Firstly the cast, absolutely brilliant. Jamie Foxx as Django was a very good choice and I really liked him. Christoph Waltz as Dr King Schultz was another great choice and I find myself wondering why he was never discovered in Hollywood before Inglorious Basterds, well done Tarantino, well done. Leonardo DiCaprio was a brilliant choice to play the psychotic Calvin Candie and lastly, Samuel L Jackson as yet another stand out character as Stephen, Candie's butler. Jackson is absolutely hilarious and provides some comedy gold to the film.
Secondly, the plot is very good, which follows Django, a slave who is released from his owners by Dr Schultz who is actually a bounty hunter who needs Django's help with some jobs, he then agrees to help Django find his wife (played by Kerry Washington).
Thirdly, the film is very dark, and in my opinion rightly so, as Tarantino captures the brutality of slavery very well and doesn't hold back on the violence. I feel he dealt with such a serious and sensitive topic very well in the way it was portrayed. There have been complaints of the excessive use of racial slurs in the film but in my opinion this is how it would have been during the slave trade.
Furthermore, look out for the scene with Big Daddy (Don Johnson) and his workers when they hunt try to kill Django, which includes a short cameo from Jonah Hill. The film is hilarious an is like a Monty Python sketch which is something Tarantino has done very well in his films.
Overall, a fantastic film, and up there with Tarantino's best in my opinion. Very dark at times but has it's hilarious moments and will keep you entertained from start to finish.… Expand
Average User Score: 2.5Jun 18, 2013Absolutely awful, I went with some friends and 2 fell asleep, that's how bad this movie was. I can't think of a single good thing to say about it. It's about time that the Scary Movie franchise was brought to an end as it will only get worse.
Once again, the film has no plot, like most spoof films of this kind. Terrible acting and cameos from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, amongst others make the film more unbearable.
I'm warning you, don't watch this film, you can't have the time back you wasted watching it.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.4Jun 18, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The worst out of the trilogy, but I still enjoyed it, somewhat. The Hangover Part III takes a very different path to the first two. A much darker path might I add. The Wolfpack get caught up in Lesley Chow's criminal activities and their actions from the first two movies seem to catch up with them. They are ordered to find Chow who escapes from prison.
There are some issues I had with the film:
1. The pace of the movie is slow and it takes a while to get to the main plot and then it seems to be over very quickly.
2. Alan, he is still funny in this one but it seems like they were trying too hard to make him funny which annoyed me as it made the film poorer.
3. There is no actual hangover until the very end of the film.
Overall, a funny film but it has it's flaws.… Expand
