Interstellar

Interstellar:  The real reason McConaughey left Earth is because he was sick of fucking corn.

Space shit is making a huge comeback lately with Cosmos back on the air, Elon Musk saying, “Fuck it. We should colonize Mars.”, Neil Tyson Degrasse hailed as the science Jesus with the holy spirit being Bill Nye, and we are actually going to land a probe on a comet. Now we have Interstellar coming in at the right time to not only fill the void of space exploration films, but to give us more McConaughey. With Christopher Nolan at the helm and a great cast of supporting characters, we get a great science fiction movie in spite of being a little too cut and dry.

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler:  Gyllenhall looking like a month long coke binge helps being fantastically manic.

You have Jackass crazy with Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O kicking each other in the dick repeatedly. You have Beyonce's “Crazy in Love” and there's Gnarls Barkley's “Crazy” that makes your girl shake her ass. You have awesome crazy with Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen who if put together in the same room, would end the universe with their drunken shenanigans. You have racist Mel Gibson crazy and the scientologist representative Tom Cruise pulling out the cult crazy. There is Gary Busey crazy, Lindsey Lohan slutty crazy, and the standard Nicolas Cage flipping his shit crazy. A lot of actors have pulled off crazy on screen surprisingly well, but while Jake Gyllenhaal has shown that he has a decent amount of range, he still has some of the creepiest, most disturbed portrayals of crazy that I have ever seen. Nightcrawler sells the story through a very disturbed man, and with Gyllenhaal in the driver's seat, his madness throughout the film is nothing short of fascinating.

Fury

Fury: A gritty WWII film centering on a tank crew and Brad Pitt’s amazing hair.

 

You’ve seen the lukewarm trailer. You have seen the hair you wish you had. You’ve seen Shia Lebeouf’s antics in the news and filming. We have been through a run of bad reviews with games and movies here on the site and I was actually scared to see the film. But, it looks like for the moment that the spell is broken. Fury is out and while it is cliché a few times, it’s a pretty solid, if gritty war film.
