Slow West (2015)

They were heading west… and it was slow. The really slow people involved in this film were the writers. What the heck was that ending? I’m now going to refer this movie as “Cuckold West”. Wow… that ending. Even though this movie is quite short compared to every movie out there, it felt long and had zero payoff. The acting was good, and there were some endearing moments but that ending will forever mar this film into suckiness. This is another one of those films where I will curse it on my deathbed. Why, why couldn’t I get that time back? I’ll always like Michael Fassbender though. He is just an excellent actor. I hope to never see this again, or even see it sitting on a store shelf. I’m done with it!

35/100

Brooklyn (2015)

One of the best romances of the year (as described by the movie cover) is really not that romantic at all. This is another one of those movies where a women is in a serious relationship and yet still plays the field (because women are now taking the place of philandering men). Think Twilight but with Irish accents. Don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love Saoirse Ronan. She did an excellent job of acting and she is gorgeous beyond words (plus the accent makes her even prettier)… but this movie had a crappy love story. I love how it starts off, but then it completely devolves when she goes back to revisit her home country. Then it just ends very abruptly, despite it’s long running-time. I may just be old-fashioned but a lady jumping from dude to dude like she’s at a buffet table does not make a good romance film.

68/100
