This is 2 days latter and I am not gonna edit because it's a totally different subject and it would be honestly pretty retarded. Split 8.5/10
- Just seen it and I must say I liked this movie more than Tarantino's The Hateful Eight
. The main role is played by James McAvoy, for those of us still unfamiliar with him, he's the guy from X-Men: Origins/Apocalypse, the young Professor X. As we didn't have a feast in this year's oscars as I think most would agree, I was wandering why wasn't he nominated there, I mean fuak, has anyone else seen what he did here!? But then I read more carefully, this movie was released only about mid January so it did not classify as a 2016 movie.
You can't tell what's what about an actor until he is given the right stuff, the right scenery to work with. Take the guy from Deadpool
for exemple, Ryan Reynolds, he does well in that movie, but 14 years ago he played that extremely superficial Van Wilder
and fed those stuck up Harvard shits some dog cum in cookies.
Of coarse we all liked that scene but his role was out of the charts of dumb. And then only 8 years later he plays that great role in Buried
, in 2010. Practically he makes all that movie almost all by himself and manages a very good movie out of it.
The moral is that you never know how an actor will develop or how deep his talent goes until he is put to the real test. And that my friends happened in Split with our dear young Professor X. I deeply enjoyed this movie, watched the ending about 4 times and I regret I didn't wait for the HD/Bluray version as I have no cinema in my little town for the moment. I thought it will be a 7/10, mostly 7.5/10 rated movie so with no obvious special effects I might lose, I thought I would give it a go in a shady quality. Boy was I wrong, this is the type of movie you see as clear as possible, in a cinema if you got the chance. I will re watch it in the best quality possible when it will be released, no doubt, I don't wanna miss every little thing from McAvoy's best performance to date!
I regret ever calling him gay in relations with the new young X-Men I disliked at the time, this guy is simply... great. He would have been an oscar nominee I think, if the movie would have been released just a month earlier. Bad luck for him opposed to us, who got the real treat in early 2017.
