Leave No Trace
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Leave No Trace is almost flawless. The perfect actors, the perfect pace, the perfect tone, etc. A very mild movie. Like the critics consensus says, the story could of been blown out of proportion. It's a very stress-free movie, despite the ending. All of the characters are likable, it's well written, smooth, and set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. While nothing in the movie is sensational enough to win this, say, best picture (but maybe one or two fro acting), or one of the top 3 movies of the year, it was still a brilliant movie.

A very good movie indeed. While, as a comedy, it thought it was funnier than it was, as a drama, it was pretty solid. The delivery of the point it was trying to make was excellent. The directing was a little off, but not enough to significantly mess anything up. One of the best movies of the year, so far.

Worth a watch. Great performances, and decent everything else, except the music, which was Williams worst to date.

First Reformed
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A movie with a genius plot with great characters and an amazing performance, that got it's points about martyrdom, insanity, and global warming across perfectly well. This is why, and here's my problem with this movie, the "flying" scene, which looked terrible by the way, did not need to be included. It was completely unnecessary and destroyed the mood the movie worked so hard to establish. If Schrader's point was a ball he was trying to toss to the audience, with that scene he threw it over our heads and broke the window. [SPOILER] I also disliked the ending. While I understand where Schrader was coming from, it still felt out of place and forced. It would have flowed so much better if he'd just drank the Drano. If it weren't for these two scenes, I would've given this a five star rating.

This guy was my childhood. A compassionate portrait of Fred Rogers turns out great. Enjoyable, touching, and nostalgic. One of the best movies of the year, worth a watch, definitely. My only complaint is that they didn't end the movie sooner, before the the funeral protesters. A quality movie.
