Welcome to the brand new Movie Snob Blog. The name comes from a friend of mine that calls me a movie snob. Apparently I can be quite opinionated about movies. Who knew? Many of you know that I’m passionate about sports cards. However, you may not know that I’m just as passionate about movies. I go to the movies every Thursday with my parents for our weekly movie night. I also end up going another night by myself a lot of weeks. I’ve decided to try and share my passion for movies with you all. I will be posting reviews for all the movies I see. I’ll also be doing a lot of posts on the Oscars.
Before I get started, I want to warn you that there might be spoliers to some of these movies. I will do my best not to divulge too much information, but it’s hard to do an accurate movie review without mentioning certain aspects of each movie. Without furter ado…
This week the movie was The Disaster Artist. This is a true story about a very mysterious man who goes on to write, direct, produce and star in his own movie. He spends $6 million dollars and the movie is a complete disaster. The story is pretty fascinating. James Franco and his brother Dave Franco are the two stars. James knocks it out of the park. He has a great shot to win a Golden Globe tomorrow. He probably won’t win an Oscar, but he might receive a nomination.
There was a lot of humor in the movie. For that reason, it’s listed as a comedy. It’s not a comedy like a Will Ferrell movie, but you will definitely find yourself laughing out loud. It’s not a super long movie and goes by really fast. This isn’t the kind of movie you’ll want to watch all the time. However, it’s definitely a movie you’ll want to see once. The acting is great. The story is fascinating. There is humor and it’s even a bit touching.
I always love this time of year for all the award-winning type of films that get released. And The Disaster Artist certainly falls into that category. A lot of moviegoers don’t particularly love all these type of films. However, I think The Disaster Artist will be one that most would enjoy. It is still artsy, but it’s not so artsy that people will find it weird. You can go to this movie and simply be entertained. There aren’t a ton of movies that get nominated for a bunch of awards and are good for the mainstream public. This is one of the few. If nothing else, it’s worth seeing it because of how the story is so crazy.
I’m going to rate movies on a scale of 1-100. I’m doing that because I hate when movies are all in the 6-8 range withouth being to decipher between one 6 and another. This will give me an opportunity to really separate each film.
FINAL SCORE: 78
