Jon Martello (Joeseph Gordan-Levitt) is an Italian American stud. This handsome, charming gentlemen known by his friends as 'Don Jon' due to the ability to 'pull' exceptionally beautiful women with ease is dedicated to many things such as his family, church and 'pad'. But something else dominates his life. This film is a story around the love life of a 'porn addict' and the difficulties this obsessive compulsion leads to. Throughout the film 'Don Jon' journeys to discover true happiness with a women and battle the problems with his obsession.
Joseph Gordan-Levitt portrays the 'Porn-a-holic' stud exquisitely, crafting the perfect character for the feature. He tackles the generic conventions perfectly, from the New Jersey accent to the short temper of Italian Americans as he shows us through out. Scarlett Johansson performs exactly how she's supposed to and nails the characteristics of 'Barbara Sugarman' to an effective manner. Her stuck-up, careless character is brilliant for Scarlett to give an award-winning performance in which she did deserve.
This unique feature allowed pornography to become legitimised in the world we live in today and showed the repercussions and benefits of internet. I found it remarkably outstanding, showing how this type of addiction can release them from very stress it causes.
However every movies comes with its criticism: Firstly I felt that at times the movie in itself wasn't gripping enough. Not to detest the inner brilliance of this orginality, I just think that the movie could've contained more drama (seeing how it is based on an Italian American family). Obviously we do see a few specks of aggression such as in the numerous car scenes and 'family fights' but I believe that under the circumstances the character is in, not enough emotion, regret and sadness is shown. BUT you could say that Joseph Gordan-Levitt decides to construct his character on an emotionless foundation, thus allowing him to has consistent 'sex out of wedlock'.
Overall I believe this film is worth watching as it shows the true colours of a mans rivalry and friendship with the three most important things in a mans life...love, sex and porn.
This is one of the best political thrillers ever shot on film. Intellectually rigorous, suspensfully superlative and emotionally moving, there are very few films that can hold a candle to this masterpiece. We are convincingly swept up into the world of Panem, a dictatorship or tyranny of a select class of privileged apparatchiks in the Capitol, who rule over a much larger population of workers in 12 less equal districts. The ideology however, is not specified. You can read fascism or communism into it, take your pick. In this society everyone is under total coercion, death being the punishment for disobedience. This aspect is vividly portrayed in refreshing contrast to so many Hollywood "message" films that don't bother with the most salient flaws of the messages they are pushing. If you haven't seen it yet, treat yourself to this incredibly meaningful adventure movie. The acting is also unbelievably good, by all who are in it. Beautiful!
Frozen was the best movie I've ever seen in so many years. It was the best movie ever. We'd saw this movie for like 4 times already. First we watched the 2D one 2 times and love it so we went back for 3D. Then they have sing along so we went back for the sing along. It was awesome. Love it. Love it. Wanted to go back again but cost too much money. Really hope they will show this forever.
If I start asking you do you remember the freedom of Bangladesh and the plight that the people faced during that time, you will tell me " please go on " and then I go on bringing in two kids who walked the wrong path to make sure they are given their rights, then you will tell me go on go on and I bring in 3 HOTTTT bodies ( 2 super hot , 1 ok ok hot ) and make then do a few dance and action moves together, you will sit back and think whats going on and at last you will find i just mixed up everything and now you know whats going to happen, thats Gunday for you.
Although the actors were great in what they were paid to do, Ranveer & Irfan were the only guys who stood apart, if you are someone who has been related to Bollywood you will understand how the movie is going to end as soon as you reach half of the movie, but do not try to give the suspense out.
How did this film not make over a billion dollars? Its a improvement on the first one and perhaps the best Middle-Earth film out [my opinion] Go watch this film go buy it on blu-ray when it comes out and then buy the extended edition on blu-ray i would pay 100$ to see this movie
Gunday.... a brilliant effort by Ali Abbas Zafar ... The dialogues are jus Mind blowing ... been penned by the director himself... although the screenplay softens periodically .. needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, in the wake of the entire PACKAGE... Absolutely, immaculate treatment, of certain scenes in the beginning and in the End..... if it doesnt bring a tear to your eye.. you aren't sensitive enough... This movie is all about an immortal friendship of two orphans who stick to each other in the worst of times...willing to give up their life for one another.... its about their rise to fame and power... about their Absolute togetherness which splits them apart in the name of a deceitful LOVE ....but they get back.. and HOW.... a must watch ... Gunday thrills you with the settings of the 70's.... Priyanka looks gorgeous as ever (shes my fav.. ) ... no two thoughts about her acting prowess as she shines as always.... Irrfan khan proves , hes the Maestro in watever he does ..always and ever... The surprise package of the muvee are Ranveer & Arjun... the lads have transformed to MEN...( Laundey MARD ban gaye hain ) and wat MEN... Intense performances.. Greek God looks...Chiselled Physiques... superb comedy timing ... they simply ROCK... This is one flick that you wud identify with..whoever you are... Although i criticised ' Mere Brother ki Dulhan' but Ali Abbas gets back with a vengeance and passion... and scores this time, for sure... .... Do watch this flick .. but dont hate me for this review... love u all... This muvee get 3/5 from me.
