Whiplash!  LG773  5 star

Great movie. The dynamic between the two main actors is great. JK Simmons is diabolical in this movie and completely deserved the Oscar.

Whiplash from the 5 star rating  Eschenbach2017  2 star

This movie was 1 hr 45 minutes of yelling , cursing and mediocre music. Might have been okay if movie had ended with the car crash. And the ending just would not end.

Ok, that was one of the better movies I've ever seen. Sorry I don't have the intellectual jam to write more in depth, so again, that was one of the bertter movies I've evere seen.

I don’t know why I didn’t see this movie before. It is an absolutely engrossing and engaging drama, a great story and definitely amazing acting. JK Simmons is scary inspiring at the same time. Miles Teller paying his debt for the woeful fantastic four and delivering an amazing performance.Don’t sit on this one.

If I could give Whuplash 100 stars I would, it's THAT good. This is fillmaking and acting at it's very best.

great big band. Are you a rusher or a dragger. It doesn’t matter for drumming enthusiasts

Scores (music) are fabulous performance but, ...  1st Quill  1 star

The writing of the scores and the directing of the music performance was fabulous. Some acting moments were good but overall it is a weak script, underwritten - or over edited in production - and over-acted without motivation, … unless it was produced purely for the depiction of abuse. If you are an artist, or a teacher, or a musician save yourself from this abuse and pick something worthwhile to watch. Or just listen to some great jazz, … .

Revealing  Dipkayton  5 star

Great acting. Great music. Shows how tough the jazz idiom is. I finally appreciate how tightly integrated jazz bands have to be and the subtleties of perfection.

Whiplash Wicked  Bromeh  4 star

Really enjoyed the story and acting. Not standard Hollywood fare. Maybe a five star movie but I'm a tough critic. I will watch his again.

So insanely good  Sggreen  5 star

Amazing movie - maybe the best I've seen this decade.

The Movie Weasel
Flatline Boring  The Movie Weasel  2 star

At the minimum it’s — badly written as a script; the “girlfriend” is a useless contribution to the plot; the drummer’s father has no contribution; the segues in plot development are weak and disjointed. The “ruthless” instructor betrays his own character and the student drummer is shallow and weak in his depiction of passion. It’s a badly portrayed romance of a very mediocre plot with a weak script.

Intense  MT4111  5 star

Intense movie with amazing actors! Plus, the music is very good!

Smart, Intense, Twisted...  SkyeScott  5 star

Wasn't prepared for how captivating and brutal a movie about jazz and drumming would be. Outstanding performances from all the actors, with a well deserved Oscar for JK Simmons. Check this one out!

Hmmmmm  CJMillard  1 star

While I am sure this well acted film will be enjoyable to most, to any of us who happen to be teachers at major music schools the premise is absurd. I started laughing at the first thrown cymbal and quit watching after 20 minutes. Barbaric teaching is a myth of the past.

Over the top  Golfer67Ca  1 star

Main character was so extreme he became a cartoon character. Over played. Tour de force in expletives, hate speech, and abuse. The twists and turns at the end almost made it worth watching.
