    CAROL and SISTERS – 7/10; THE BIG SHORT and ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS 4 – 1/10

    GAME OF THRONES’s 5th season is the 2nd best (after the 4th one). HARDHOME is a great episode, but so is the underrated and unjustly controversial UNBOWED, UNBENT, UNBROKEN.

    I’ll watch BROOKLYN as soon as I finish the book.

    • Karl Lanthanimos

      the big short 1/10 are u kidding me? i thought it was brilliant. adam mckay surely deserved the best director award.

      • Vits/Vicente Torres

        The only funny part in the movie is Steve Carell’s hair. The acting isn’t bad, but nothing out of this world. There’s an over-reliance in narration, headache-inducing camera work, awkward cuts to another scene in the middle of a sentence and redundant montages of real-life clips from the time period. I didn’t care about the main characters. That’s highlighted whenever a celebrity appears to explain the terminology. They don’t use metaphors like the main characters do. If it had been the other way around, it wouldn’t have made a difference, because I wasn’t interested in anything the main characters said.
