Edgar Wright. Quentin Tarantino. You can’t go wrong there, can you?

“This isn’t as off-the-wall as one might assume. Apparently these two have been friends or years. As Wright explains on the commentary track, Tarantino coached the director through the writing stages of ‘Hot Fuzz’ by playing him a double-feature for inspiration that consisted of Walter Matthau’s ‘The Laughing Policeman’ and an Italian cop film called ‘Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man.’ ‘One of the greatest titles of all time!’ Tarantino raves on the commentary track. Do yourself a favor and track down the ‘Hot Fuzz’ Blu-ray or 3-disc DVD set that Universal put out a few years back. At the time, Tarantino considered Fuzz to be his favorite movie of the year ‘so far.’ And yet, the two directors spend very little time actually discussing Wright’s excellent movie. Instead, they pass two hours celebrating movies in general, and the action genre specifically. In fact, here’s a comprehensive list of the 190 films mentioned in passing by Wright and Tarantino the epic ‘Hot Fuzz’ director’s commentary track.” Sean O’Connell

Best Movies 2013! (Not that you asked)

image

Holy moly!

Catching up with the award-nominated movies and performances for this year and I am already totally blown away. This is one of the best years in a long time. Especially acting-wise - both ensemble and individual work. If you’re a cinephile, and/or mad about acting, here are the top films I heartily recommend you see as soon as you can (in no particular order):

12 Years a Slave - So. Good. Not traditional in it’s structure, and loaded with mind-blowing performances from almost every single actor (minus one in particular, and the few shitty comedians who snuck in there at the beginning who thought they were doing a ‘stache-twirling sketch on SNL).

Dallas Buyers Club - If you are avoiding this film because you hate Matthew McConaughey then you are missing the chance to see the best thing he has ever done in his entire life. Same with Jared Leto. Gonna give 12 Years a serious run for their actor-awards-money.

American Hustle - Everything - direction, script, cinematography, ensemble - is seriously great. Funny and dark. And everyone is excellent. Every single performance is stellar. Great cinematography: It’s like a visual-homage to other movies set in that era - but on steroids. 

August Osage County - Meryl frigging Streep and Julia Roberts absolutely murder this film and take no prisoners (all good things). Truly good performances.  Excellent adaptation from the play, which was also written by Tracy Letts. All the performances (minus one HORRIBLY miscast and ill-equipped Scotsman… ) are just wonderful. But Meryl and Julia. Oh holy wow. 

-

Good performances

Blue Jasmine - Not a great film, but an outrageously great performance by Cate Blanchett. FML so good.

Labor Day - Meh film, good performance by Kate Winslet. 

Films I have yet to see: Prisoners, Wolf of Wall Street, Her, Saving Mrs Banks, Captain Phillips, Rush, Nebraska, Mandela, All is Lost, Inside Llewyn Davis, Enough Said, Fruitvale Station (err… that’s a lot of film… )

And decent movies that you should watch but aren’t necessarily as important as the aforementioned: Gravity, Philomena.
