    366 Days of Movies #12 - Now You See Me (2013)
    Saw this in the theaters a couple of years ago when it was released and I loved it when I watched, but watching it again now, it makes a lot more sense and it was still very good. Nothing special, but still a very enjoyable movie.

    I think I will be going on a sort of Jesse Eisenberg binge of movies the next few days. I don't know what it is about, but I love him as an actor, especially in Zombieland, The Social Network, and this film too.

    The sequel is supposed to be out soon I think. Actually enjoyed the first one myself.

    366 Days of Movies #13 - The Social Network (2010)
    The birth of Facebook in a movie. Pretty good, albeit I would have liked to have see them show Zuckerberg as an even bigger ****, that would of been pleasing. David Fincher does the best job he could of have done considering he is made a movie about a social networking site.

    I don't really have much to say, other than its a pretty decent movie.

    Its weird watching movies which were made before places banned in-door smoking, I don't know what it is, just looks really out of place

    366 Days of Movies #14 - X-Men (2000)
    I never watched this X-Men franchise, despite many, many people telling me to do so, but now I figured with watching a movie every day there wasn't a better time to finally get around to it.

    Pretty good film overall, sets up the franchise nicely so it should be a good watch. Although one irk I had about the film was just how obvious they made the links to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Maybe it was just me who noticed it, but I doubt it.

    So Innaritu's films have received 21 nominations in two years. That's astounding.

    I think that list is incorrect by the way. The official website for the Oscars has Room, but not Carol (NME has it the other way round).

    Not sure if there are any other differences.

    366 Days of Movies #15 - Perks Of Being A Wallflower (2012)
    Wow. I was not expecting that. I actually messaged my old media teacher on Facebook for a suggestion on what to watch and when he suggested this, I wasn't sure why he had recommended some dumb teen comedy film, but boy do I feel dumb now.

    This was a comedy, a romance, a drama, a social justice, and a coming of age flick all rolled into one, and it's amazing in every way. Anyone who hasn't seen this film should really watch it ASAP.

    Saw The Revenant in IMAX. It was kind of extraordinary actually - I'm glad I waited.

    Absolute behemoth of a film. Di Caprio's physical performance makes all the praise understandable, maybe he deserves even more. I'm sure he'll get it come Oscar-time.

    Hope Lubezki wins again for cinematography. It was a genuinely major part of the film, and it would be great to see someone win it three years running.

    The Handheld horror sub-genre has only been done well once, from films I've seen anyway

    [REC] and Blair Witch Project both did it rather well.

    @Chris what film was it?

    @Ryan Haven't seen Blair Witch Project but [REC] is good.

    I'm just not a fan of the found footage style.

    probably the worst found footage film there is, total waste of time

    I really enjoyed it. Gets criticized rather harshly though as it doesn't have any jumps scares etc, but I think it builds tensions up really well. Probably has the best scene in a found footage film when she is talking to the camera in tears as well.

    Saw trailers for two horrors last night. The Boy, and The Forest.

    The Forest looks terrible. Sometimes it's just obvious.

    The Boy... I'm really not sure. Looks like it could go either way. I thought the trailer gave too much away, but it did look genuinely scary. Obvious idea, but if it's executed well enough things like that can gain some cult traction.
