Movie comment on First Reformed
jhhayesHow in the world could the Academy overlook Ethan Hawke's revalatory performance in this outstanding film? Powerful stuff...
Movie comment on The Rider
jhhayesA powerful Neo-Western that proves the medium doesn't need to be all shootouts, anti-heroes, and vigilante justice porn. Casting non-actors in the film was perfect. As a director, Chloé Zhao has a great style. I look forward to her next work, and I'll definitely be watching the rest of her pre-'The Rider' filmography.
Movie comment on Hannah Gadsby: Nanette
jhhayesSimply brilliant. To call this a mere stand-up routine would be insulting. It is SO much more...
Movie comment on RBG
jhhayesNo matter your political ideology, one cannot help but be awed and inspired by Justice Ginsburg's extraordinary life and the trailblazing path that led her to the highest court in the land. We all owe her a debt of gratitude. Thank you, Justice Ginsburg...
Movie comment on Call Me by Your Name
jhhayesMaybe I'm being verbose, but, to me, watching this film was akin to experiencing a visual representation of a very aesthetically pleasing poem. Very sensual and erotic without being exploitative or hedonistic. Great film.
Movie comment on Last Flag Flying
jhhayesBryan Cranston's performance in this film is outstanding. At the very least, it's deserving of a 'Best Supporting Actor' nomination, imho.
Movie comment on I, Daniel Blake
jhhayesA very powerful film that does a fine job of highlighting iniquities suffered by many in need due to the unnecessary red tape resulting from bloated bureaucracy. The performances and dialogue seemed to be so grounded in realism that the film is akin to a documentary.
Movie comment on Stalker
jhhayesIn all honesty, I didn't expect to enjoy this film. At all. All I can say is that it had me hooked from the get-go. I was spellbound to the point of literally losing all track of time. The runtime of nearly 180 minutes ticked by in the blink of an eye. I don't even know what it was that enthralled me to such a degree. Maybe I'll have more answers upon a second or third viewing? 4/4
Movie comment on Days of Heaven
jhhayesJust a little while ago, I got about 25-30 minutes into this film, and I was suddenly overcome with an eerie, overwhelming sense of déjà vu. As it turns out, I had already viewed this film and checked it on 01/02/17. This is in no way a negative appraisal of the film or its merits, but needless to say, it obviously didn't leave a huge impression upon me on my first viewing. What does this mean? I haven't a single clue. My memory is actually quite sound, and I've never experienced this with ANY other film. Maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea? I just thought it interesting to share. Cheers, everyone!
Movie comment on Toni Erdmann
jhhayesThat was, well, a very interesting experience. This film has it all. These things include: Dentures, wigs, a fart, petit four bukkake, a Whitney Houston tribute, a Bulgerian kukeri, an X-rated birthday party, and family tension. It made me feel like I was stoned, and I don't even smoke. It was entertaining, to say the least...
Movie comment on I'll See You in My Dreams
jhhayesI found this hidden gem while channel surfing, and I am really glad that I tuned in. It's a charming, endearing, pleasant, engaging little dramady romcom. Has a lot of heart. Check it out!
Movie comment on Spellbound
jhhayesThez iz uh grate philm.
Movie comment on Chariots of Fire
jhhayesI've returned, after 7 years, to update my previous comments about this film. Having recently rewatched this film, I definitely concur with my previous comments. The alternate title of this film shall henceforth be: "Ambien: OTC"
Movie comment on God Told Me To
jhhayesPlot of a really bad X-Files episode + plot from a terrible Law & Order episode - entertainment value = God Told Me To...
Movie comment on The VVitch: A New-England Folktale
jhhayesOverrated and forgettable...
Movie comment on Chris Rock: Tamborine
jhhayesChris is still one of the best standup comedians alive. Funny fearlessness...
Movie comment on Jim Jefferies: BARE
jhhayesThe special with Jim's brilliant takedown of America's obsession with guns. I recommend watching for that particular segment.
Movie comment on Annabelle
jhhayesNot the worst I've ever seen, but certainly not the best. I found a few scenes to be quite creepy, but it could have been much better.
Movie comment on Curse of Chucky
jhhayesMuch better than I expected.
Movie comment on Suicide Squad
jhhayesThere was so much potential here that was wasted and squandered.
Movie comment on La La Land
jhhayesFilms like this are the reason the theater exists. Great film. IMHO, Emma Stone is a shoo-in for Best Actress...
Movie comment on The Outlaw Josey Wales
Movie comment on Out of the Past
jhhayesI love Douglas & Mitchum, but this film is way overrated.
Movie comment on Cimarron
jhhayesThe worst "Best Picture" I've seen.
Movie comment on Tombstone
jhhayesA pretty good western with a great ensemble cast. All performances are memorable, but Val Kilmer really is the standout here with his portrayal of Doc Holliday. I recommend it.
