Jacob Tiranno Accepts the 365 Day Movie Challenge

Happy New Years Everyone!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday and had a great time ringing in the new year. Like most of you, I compiled a list of resolutions for the year of 2016. But, when I was writing that list that we all know too well, I thought for this year I needed a real challenge. Something to test my will power and my never give up attitude. But instead of choosing something silly, I decided to take on the 365 Day Movie Challenge.

Now for those who are unfamiliar with this 365 Day Movie Challenge, I am committing to watching one film a day, that I’ve never seen before. To some of you, this doesn’t sound very challenging. To you, nay I say. This is probably one of the hardest things to do. The 365 Day Movie Challenge will be a part of my life for one whole year. Every day my life for the next year will be revolving around the question of when can I sit down and watch a movie before the day ends. That not only intrigued me, it genuinely excited me.

The Walk Movie Review & Film Summary

The Walk is the latest film from Robert Zemeckis, the same director who brought audiences Cast Away, Back to the Future, and most recently Flight. Zemeckis is known for his powerful, visual story-telling and his stunning visual effects. Those signatures are clearly written all over this new film, which tells a fantastic, true story. The Walk, for the most part, is exhilarating, fun, and even quite touching.

 The Walk tells the story of high-wire artist Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), whose dream it was to one day walk a wire across the recently built Twin Towers, at the World Trade Center. In 1974, after gathering a team of “accomplices,” they left Paris, went to the United States and did their best to make Philippe’s dream come true. The movie is based on the novel that Petit wrote, To Reach the Clouds, where he recounted the events of this incredible stunt.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

I’m quite sad to say that Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, was nowhere near as fun as the first film. After seeing countless young-adult novels being adapted, I was quickly growing tired of the subgenre. All of them fell short to The Hunger Games, but some were nearly unwatchable. I remember I’d just watched The Giver, and I thought that was the end of the YA phenomenon. But I was wrong. I went into The Maze Runner and had a great time. I thought it was fun, exciting, and fresh. So, like many people, I was looking forward to the sequel—unfortunately I was disappointed.

 Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials follows the story of Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the other Gladers who recently escaped the Maze. They are brought to a secret facility, where they discover there weren’t in the only maze, as other survivors from other mazes were brought there as well. However, it doesn’t take long for Thomas to discover this place might not be the haven it claims to be. So, the Gladers and Thomas must escape and see what is really out there.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Movie Review

When I think of spy films, a few words that come to mind are action, guns, cars and fun. Some words that don’t come to mind are empty and boring, but those are keywords to describe watching The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. The movie has no point; it has no reason to exist. The characters are flat, and the action is bland. There isn’t one memorable moment in it. Even the villain—the key component in any spy film—was what the cool kids call white bread.

As I leaned back in my chair forty minutes into the picture, I realized I forgot my watch. This is very rare since I wear it every day. The reason I noticed it was because I wanted to see how much longer I had to sit there—I was ready for it to be over. Don’t worry, it will get better, I thought to myself, but once again I was wrong. If anything, it got worse as time went on. Thank God for Coca-Cola, it was the only enjoyable thing during the near two-hour movie.
