Lets see, how do I do this again?  … In Arrival, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner are tasked with communicating with a visiting advanced race of extra terrestrial beings.  The movie stays simple and on point, not tasking itself with any more than exploring this idea.  Cuts of the main character’s daughter meeting animals and insects permeates the film, drawing to mind a reference I once heard made about how what we would call an alien abduction is similar to a fish getting caught and then thrown back, albeit from the fish’s perspective.  The special effects are artsy; its not a big explosiony, blockbustery, dumb down the script for mass appeal, sci-fi movie.  Theres a major M. Night Shamalamadingdong twist at the end thats pretty cool, and, not to brag or nothing but I figured it out way before the others I was watching with, ergo I smarter.  I’d say its worth checking out.

Her by jaemskeray

Her is a movie about a man who falls in love with his computer OS.  It takes place in a futuristic utopian pristine city where there are no poor people or dirt, I like Thomas’s Blade Runner in the day time comment.  Thats kind of an interesting thing about this movie, most sci fi takes place in a dystopian society, an upsetting or frightening version of the future.  But this is a very stylized vision of our future, kind of like a white people’s problems sci fi.  But, it was really entertaining, very well acted, and very artful.  Worth Watching.

Henry Cavill is Superman.  Daaaaamn.  Amy Adams is Lois Lane.  Ooh.  Russell Crowe is Superman’s father Jor El.  I can’t.  Christopher Maloni?  Please.  Kevin Costner.  Its getting too damn sexy in here.  In all seriousness though, Henry Cavill doesn’t look real in this movie, is that guy real?  The movie itself was fantastic, director Zack Snyder and writer Christopher Nolan treat the story like a cross between The Day the Earth Stood Still and Batman Begins, i.e. Sci-Fi aliens from outer space coming to earth meets kick ass dark superhero origin story.  The special effects in this are spectacular.  A high Worth Watching

American Hustle by jaemskeray

Small time con man, Christian Bale, meets Amy Adams, falls in love, and they start conning together.  They unwillingly embark on the biggest con of their careers with Bradly Cooper.  This is the one that changes everything, the big score, the game changer, and, guess what… it… DOES.  I don’t want to give to much away because the movie is really pretty great.  But by the end, no one is the same.  It’s a bit of a slow burn at the beginning/middle, but the end makes up for it.  Everyone is great in this, just fantastic sympathetic acting, You really feel for Christian Bale, but I though J-Law and B-Coops had some of the best moments.  Worth watching

The Muppets by jaemskeray

Jason Segel helps his brother fulfill his dreams of becoming an entertainer.  However, Jason also promises to spend time with his fiancee Amy Adams simultaneously.  Jason needs to get a day planner.  Also, the Muppets are in this movie.  Soundtrack needed more original songs like all muppet movies have.  Man or Muppet song won an Academy Award but Rainbow Connection didn’t?  Too many cameos to care about.  There were plenty of funny jokes, but, don’t believe the hype.  Watchable



Julie & Julia by tincolor

Amy Adams is a self-absorbed woman in her 30s who decides to make all of the recipes in a book by Meryl Streep. At numerous points throughout this movie, probably whenever the plot switched to the Amy Adams part, I found myself wishing I could just watch a movie about Julia Child. I found it incredibly annoying that, while this is a movie essentially about food, Amy Adams never really talks about her food because she’s too busy talking about herself. Watchable.
