Quick Review: Only God Forgives (2013)

ONLY GOD FORGIVES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 24, 2013 Unflinching. Charismatic. Surreal. Nicolas Winding Refn’s follow-up to “Drive” re-teams Refn with Ryan Gosling for “Only God Forgives,” a self-described neon fairy tale of heightened reality. The screenplay unfolds like a Shakespearean tragedy, with Gosling playing Julian, a brother seeking revenge on his older brother’s killers in Bangkok, all by his overbearing and uber sexual mother … Read More Quick Review: Only God Forgives (2013)

Quick Review: The Place Beyond The Pines (2013)

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMARCH 30, 2013 Don’t let the two-hour and twenty-minute run-time frighten you away. Derek Cianfrance (“Blue Valentine”) uses every last frame of that run-time to create a masterpiece of drama. Ryan Gosling is easily one of the best actors of his time, making the persona Luke, a motorcycle stuntman who finds out he has a son from … Read More Quick Review: The Place Beyond The Pines (2013)

New Trailer: The Place Beyond the Pines – Official Trailer #1

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES // Ryan Gosling is bar-none, my favorite male actor as of late. Not far behind, with an ever impeccable and often overlooked emotional range, is Bradley Cooper. So naturally placing both of these men in the same film and pitting them against one another is right up my alley. Gosling plays a motorcycle stuntman with a newborn. Not exactly … Read More New Trailer: The Place Beyond the Pines – Official Trailer #1

GANGSTER SQUAD / Having almost gotten to see a cut of this film, there are few films I am more excited for than Gangster Squad. Set in 40’s and 50’s Los Angeles, this film stars an all-star crew that most assuredly will be nominated for some Academy Awards, including a villainous performance from Sean Penn and some impressive showings as always from Ryan Gosling, … Read More New Trailer: Gangster Squad – Official Trailer #1

Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE. BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLMARCH 31, 2012 “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.” —Albert Einstein It would be easy to call “Crazy, Stupid, Love” just another typical romantic comedy, ranging the same ideological issues with the same emotional level brought on by every other romantic comedy released these days. And from the outside, this film looks like (minus the fantastic ensemble … Read More Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

2012 Oscars Challenge: [41] Drive & Sound Editing

[5 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[1 DAY TO OSCARS] Seeing “Drive” win its one category would be a great victory, but “Hugo” and “War Horse” are basically the only competitors in this category. With “Drive” being snubbed this year, a sound win would definitely show the naysayers the kind of following this film has but I do not believe the Academy look to honor … Read More 2012 Oscars Challenge: [41] Drive & Sound Editing

Movie Review: The Ides Of March (2011)

THE IDES OF MARCH BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJANUARY 22, 2012 Talk to me about primaries, polls, and politics, and I will respond to you with a blank stare. However, divulge that Senators are making backhanded deals, Governors are exploiting their power, and journalists are blackmailing affiliates, and I will engage in the conversation. “The Ides Of March” does just that and is one of the … Read More Movie Review: The Ides Of March (2011)

For Your Consideration 2011: “Drive”

“Drive” was my favorite film of the year and the more nominations this film receives, the happier I will be. Ryan Gosling by far deserves a nomination, as well as the director, the score, the screenplay, and without a doubt, the cinematography. Deep down I have a feeling this film may get snubbed for its graphic nature, but overall, this film deserves some recognition. … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Drive”

For Your Consideration 2011: “The Ides of March”

One of my favorite films of the year (thus far), there is no surprise that “The Ides of March” is being considered for all categories of the Academy Awards. I have a strong feeling that this might be Ryan Gosling’s year, if not to win an Oscar than to at least be nominated. Having George Clooney star and direct may give Clooney an edge … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “The Ides of March”

THE UNITED STATES OF LELAND BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJUNE 30, 2010 Mix a stacked cast of big names with Kevin Spacey as the producer and you get a film called “The United States of Leland.” Having been released since 2003, a friend of mine encouraged me to watch the film.
