MOVIE REVIEW: A GHOST STORY (David Lowery, 2017)

87D476A1-881C-446D-A638-A46EF2311ADD

SPOILER ALERT!!

Lakas ng tawa ko nung biglang bumangon si Casey Affleck at nagliwaliw sa ospital habang nakatalukbong ng kumot (with eye holes para hindi sya matapilok).

Meron pa eksena na kumakain si Rooney Mara ng pie tapos subo lang siya nang subo so inisip ko baka uubusin niya kaya nag-check muna ako ng Twitter. Aba after five minutes, kumakain pa rin sya at di man lang nag-alok! (Ayun sa kadamutan niya, sinuka din nya lahat.)

This supposedly profound tale of a time-travelling ghost was roughly ninety minutes, but felt longer than a typical Terrence Malick feature. Watching this was the perfect penance for Good Friday.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

MOVIE REVIEW: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (David Fincher, 2011)

Honestly speaking, I found Zodiac completely boring. Even with a 2.5 hour running time, this movie was not even remotely close to that one.

I’m sure purists would have a lot to complain about, but the only one I have was that David Fincher was robbed of an Oscar Best Director nomination.

Rooney Mara was the perfect choice as the desensitized Lisbeth Salander.

Brutal, brooding, exciting, and completely fascinating.
