I’ve realised I actually watched a few of these movies without remembering they were on this list. So:
Children of Men
Fun, interesting film. Kind of reminds me of 28 Days later, but it’s smarter than that. Unfortunately it’ll never be a classic because it’s just a bit silly and cliche. That doesn’t make it bad, just… less good than it could have been.
I really, really enjoyed this film. I loved how restrained it was in its framing. There was so much story to tell across so much time but it was all told in a focused two weeks. So clever.
Genuinely the funniest movie I have ever seen. It MUST be seen with other people.
Something about this one reminded me of The Great Gatsby, or The Secret History. Strange for a definitively futuristic sci-fi, but I think I’m a bit in love with this movie for achieving that.
Funny, but nothing special. I went in with expectations that were much too high. I didn’t think it would have such a quintessentially chick-flicky plot. I wish it had tried to be a little less predictable, because it obviously was the product of a quality comedy team.
