Yeah, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
would be my pick. IMO, you really have to be in a certain state of mind watching something like Schindler's List
, or even Glory
. Plus, Button is a beautifully shot film, and I loved Pitt and Blanchett in it.
Also, I posted this in the other thread, but just quick thoughts on T4..
Right after the movie ended I thought, wow, the best film of the franchise. On the drive home, thinking about it (which is a bad idea for this type of film), I couldn't help but realize that Bay has no idea what to do with the Transformers.
I'll give him credit, the human characters were much better this time around. Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci and Bingbing Li were probably the best performers of the entire series. Bay also kept the humor to a minimum, but of course, had to have his signature "Victoria's Secret's" shots. Dinobots looked awesome, I guess. Battle scenes just aren't that exciting anymore.
I'm not even going to go into how disappointed I was in regards to the Transformers themselves. I know at this point, given that it's the 4th film, the well runs dry, but it's just getting ridiculous.
In terms of ranking the franchise now:
2. Age of Extinction
3. Dark of the Moon
4. Revenge of the Fallen*
IMO, the 6.5 rating on IMDB is apropos. For me, the $15+ on this (IMAX 3D) wasn't a waste. And hey, the Interstellar trailer looked (and sounded) awesome on IMAX.
BTW, anyone else notice Jessica Gomes in the KSI commercials? Very nice.
*Love the Optimus "forest scene," but it's not enough to overshadow the slutty human transformer.
