Movie Reviews:

  • Reno: > Just when it can’t get any better…

    The first thing I noticed was after seeing the movie is there’s some kind of mistake in the Oscars nominee. Rooney Mara should have been on the lead role list, while Cate Blanchett in the supporting character’s. Maybe the Academy people misunderstood that the title role must be the lead character. Theirs switched place actually does not make any sense. Anyway the Oscars never made sense at all.

    This story was okay, but adapted screenplay and direction, especially the music was excellent. For the ending scene alone, you will be tempted to raise your rating than what you initially thought it deserves. I was not expecting the movie to be awesome, so I’m not upset for the overall movie.

    Believe me, the last thing I want in this movie is to see Cate Blanchett in naked. Maybe out of respect or her age or she’s not attracted to me, there are plenty of reasons that I can’t figure it out which one, but after knowing what this theme is, I was only praying for that not to happen. And obviously that is unavoidable, otherwise the movie will lose its soul and strength.

    Well, it was better than I thought, both the actresses were good, but Rooney Mara dominated. Whatever category she’s in for the Oscars, I’ll be happy if she wins. It is not a must watch, but a decent movie and betters in some parts.

    7/10

  • mattwilde123: ‘Carol’ is beautifully shot and very maturely made. The acting was very class all around the film. The whole thing seemed like it was taken from the 40s. I loved how fine it all looked and felt and it deserved a lot more awards than it got.

    ★★★★
