The Walk (2015)

This is a walk I’d rather not take, but I’m glad Philippe Petit did. He seems to have made the Twin Towers of New York famous for not just being the target of a gigantic tragedy. I thought that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was incredibly adorable in this film, yes, his accent wasn’t spot-on all the time… but I loved him nonetheless. Charlotte Le Bon was gorgeous and interesting to watch. I also liked seeing Ben Kinsley in this as well, he’s in a lot of films but he adds a lot. The movie is very entertaining with an Ocean’s Eleven style set-up and the final scenes will scare the crap out of you if you have acrophobia like I do. I also just felt like it was a touching tribute to the World Trade Center that focuses on life instead of death. I love Zemeckis as a director and I’m glad he’s still working hard in Hollywood.

True Story (2015)

It’s true that this has a pretty good story, the most amazing thing was that this was a true crime story that had two comedians in the leads. I thought that Franco did great as the alleged killer and Jonah Hill was great as the disgraced journalist. There is a good amount of tension throughout the movie and it has you throwing out a lot of guesses. I’d really like to read the book that this movie was based on. It isn’t Gone Girl but it is a pretty nice crime drama, that will also make you want to watch a bit of Investigation Discovery afterward. Check this one out if you want to Dial M for Murder.

Compliance

Wow. I think this movie is insanely awesome. Not only was the acting good for everyone, especially the lead role played by the beautiful and talented Dreama Walker. This was completely based off a true story and they got absolutely everything right down to a T. I still can’t believe that this sort of thing happened all over the country and it disturbs me to no end. I will say though that this movie is fantastic. Minimal sets but an amazing story make this a wonderful thriller/drama.
