A good movie

Posted : 17 hours, 9 minutes ago on 2 May 2016 05:29 (A review of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas)

To be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. In fact, I even saw it in the theater when it came out and, ever since then, it has gained a huge cult following but I'm not sure if it really deserved all these praises (apparently, I'm not the only one and, according to Roger Ebert, the whole thing was just an horrible mess).  I mean, sure, it was visually pretty impressive, the performances by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro were pretty cool and it definitely had some wacky moments. And, yet, even though the material was pretty awesome, somehow, I still had a hard time to really connect with the damned thing. Basically, I couldn't help thinking that the whole thing was rather pointless and it was certainly really random. I guess this one needs a re-watch to make up my mind for good and, at least, back in those days, Johhny Depp was still one of the most fascinating actors in the world and this movie was absolutely miles better than all the garbage he is making nowadays.  Anyway, even though it didn't completely blow me away, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Terry Gilliam's work.

Posted : 19 hours, 6 minutes ago on 2 May 2016 03:32 (A review of 54)

It has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. In fact, if I recall it correctly, I saw this feature in the movie theater when it was released and, to be honest, I have actually no idea why I went to see the damned thing at the time. On top of that, I don’t think I was aware of the Studio 54 at the time which makes my choices even more strange. Anyway, even though it has a rather lame reputation, I thought it was in fact not so bad at all. I didn’t know it that at the time, but the movie was apparently messed up in post-production by the Weinstein brothers and the whole concept was completely changed. Apparently, it was supposed to be even darker and the main character was supposed to be sexually even more ambiguous which all sound quite intriguing. Anyway, I thought there was something quite fascinating about this messed up disco world. Back in those days, Ryan Philippe still had a great potential at the time and he was pretty good here, Salma Hayek was just gorgeous as usual (even if she didn’t have much to do) and even Mike Myers didn’t get too much on my nerves. To conclude, I actually have a weak spot for this movie, it is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine and I think it is worth a look.

A good movie

Posted : 2 days, 2 hours ago on 1 May 2016 08:20 (A review of Captain America: Civil War)

Well, even though it might sound surprising but, in fact, I actually preferred 'Batman v Superman'. Not that it was perfect, in the contrary, but I thought it worked better than this super-clash from Marvel. I mean, sure, this movie was very entertaining, actually technically better than 'Batman v Superman', with a least a dozen of awesome super-heros and, yet, it didn't completely win me over. The main issue I had is that the story was actually rather weak in my opinion. For example, let's take this so-called 'war'. In fact, at the end of the day, it was just about Iron Man and Captain America having an argument about some company policy, not much more than that. To call it a 'civil war' was a huge stretch and the supposedly huge showdown never really took place in my opinion. At some point, you had this huge fight between 2 sets of Avengers and it was indeed pretty neat but you knew all the time that they were not there to really fight each other, that nothing really huge was at stake, and, even the characters were fully aware of this as they keep cracking some jokes throughout the whole thing. Then, the villain was also disappointing. I mean, it was nice that, for once, they didn't bring someone who wanted to destroy the Earth but the guy and his scheme was just so underwhelming. Finally, I think they have to stop to bring all these characters together. It worked only once with 'The Avengers' but, now, it is getting rather tiresome to see all these heroes without much to do. I think they should make their movies smaller, focusing on 1 or 2 characters and leave the rest alone. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I have to admit it, it was still quite entertaining and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 3 days, 23 hours ago on 29 April 2016 11:31 (A review of Far and Away)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Personally, I always had some mixed feelings towards this feature. Indeed, even though it started out as a rather ambitious project (Isn’t it always the case when Tom Cruise is involved?), it turned out to be after all a rather weak effort for all the people involved. Still, somehow, I can’t really discard the whole thing. Back in those days, 20 years ago, things were different in the movie business, Tom Cruise was definitely the biggest movie star in the world, whereas Nicole Kidman was merely known as Mrs. Cruise at the time and nobody would have expected her to become eventually an Oscar winner and one of the most respected actress at work nowadays. I don’t know, those two definitely had some chemistry together and the whole thing looked pretty good so I guess I was fairly entertained but it remains a rather forgettable feature. That’s in fact a recurring issue with Tom Cruise, the fact that he is able to get involved in some really interesting projects but he often makes the misguided choice of toning down too much the material resulting in something without any edge whatsoever. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch and I think it is still worth a look, especially for Tom Cruise’s fans.

Posted : 4 days, 3 hours ago on 29 April 2016 07:33 (A review of Heart Street)

Since my wife has a weak spot for such Dutch romantic-comedies, I thought we could check it out together. Eventually, even though it seemed to have some potential, unfortunately, it turned out to be terribly underwhelming. The first thing that bothered me was how it shamelessly copied ‘You’ve got mail’. On top of that, this plot-line was very thin, everything was randomly and poorly connected to it and, as a result, the whole thing felt like a boring mess. Then, the other thing that bothered me was how annoying all the supporting characters were. They managed to get a lot of famous Dutch actors and celebrities to play all kinds of small and even smaller characters but all these supposedly quirky characters were just so over-the-top and not entertaining whatsoever.  Eventually, the only thing that worked in this movie were 2 leads : Marwan Kenzari and Bracha van Doesburgh. Indeed, they were the only actors who played it straight, they were both really cute and charming and they had some decent chemistry together. I wish they got a better story to work with because they really deserved it. To conclude, even though it was a massive disappointment, I guess it is still worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 4 days, 19 hours ago on 28 April 2016 02:49 (A review of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I remember very well when it was released. Indeed, it sounded pretty neat so I even saw it in the movie theater at the time. Unfortunately, even though I thought it was a decent watch, it turned out to be a critical failure and, above all, a massive box-office bomb. I mean, sure, the story didn’t work very well as it was way too obscure and the fact that it didn’t have much to do with the legendary video game it was supposed to be coming from didn't help either. However, the whole thing was seriously visually impressive and a huge milestone in this area. Indeed, it was the first time that they released a fully computer-animated feature film with some photorealistic characters and it felt really revolutionary to me. I’m rather amazed that after all these years this movie doesn’t get more credit. At least, if you compare it to your average video-game adaptation, you have to agree that it was miles better than the other garbage in this genre. To conclude, even though this movie has a really poor reputation, I think it is actually quite underrated and I believe it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 5 days, 2 hours ago on 28 April 2016 07:45 (A review of Laurence Anyways)

Once again, the thing I enjoyed the most with this movie was to witness the evolution of Xavier Dolan. Indeed, this 3rd directing was even more ambitious than his previous movie (with a duration of almost 3 hours, it is also Nolan’s longest movie so far), even if it was more straightforward than the rather surrealist ‘Les amours imaginaires’. Anyway, the whole thing was basically a fascinating portrayal of a man who has decided he wanted to be a woman. This time, Xavier Dolan took a step back and Melvil Poupaud, in my opinion, one of the most underrated French actors, played the lead and he gave her a great performance. What was also interesting about this movie is that it was not only focusing on this guy/girl’s journey but it was also focusing on the impact on his relationship with the love of his life. This part was quite fascinating as well, Suzanne Clément was also very strong and, with Poupaud, they had some great chemistry together. So, it was definitely a strong drama but I’m afraid it was still missing something to become truly amazing though. Above all, the second half was not as strong as the first part. Indeed, it seems that Dolan didn’t really anymore what to do with this couple. Should they stay together? Should they split for good? In this process, a 3rd person was introduced (Charlotte) but she was barely introduced and she didn’t have much impact on the whole tale after all. Like meeting this other couple with a transgender man, it might have seemed like a good idea but it didn't work out and felt misguided. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I thought it was quite a fascinating watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Xavier Dolan’s work.

Posted : 6 days, 19 hours ago on 26 April 2016 03:17 (A review of Final Analysis)

Back in the 90’s-80’s, it must have looked great on paper to make a movie starring Richard Gere and Kim Basinger, two massive sex-symbols from that time period. Indeed, back in those days, the box-office was driven by the stars involved and not by some huge franchises with some super-heroes, robots or cloned dinosaurs. Anyway, they already tried to cast those 2 stars in the 80’s with the incredibly lame and underwhelming ‘No Mercy’ and, 6 years later, they would give it another try with this thriller. I know it might sound surprising but I thought it was not so bad after all. I mean, obviously, the plot was seriously far-fetched, even often borderline ridiculous, which prevented the whole thing from being taken really seriously. It’s too bad because the mood was actually pretty good and, at least this time, Gere and Basinger were really charismatic and they had some great chemistry together. That’s often the problem with the modern thrillers trying to copy Hitchcock’s work, they don’t understand that you should keep the proceedings to something simple, otherwise, it becomes really difficult for the viewers to invest themselves in the story. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I thought it was a decent watch and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 6 days, 22 hours ago on 26 April 2016 12:17 (A review of Roma)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this feature but since it was directed by the great Federico Fellini, I was quite eager to check it out. Unfortunately, I’m afraid it turned out to be one of his movies I enjoyed the least among the ones I have seen so far. Basically, pretty much like ‘Amarcord’ which would be the following directing effort delivered by this director, there was no plot whatsoever and instead he gave us some quirky characters involved in some (really random) situations. In fact, I was just re-watching the trailer for this movie and what you get to see in these 2 minutes exactly summed up how the whole thing was, very non-linear and very random, and I thought it was rather exhausting after 2 hours. At least, it made Roma looked like a very attractive city but I didn’t get much else from this rather experimental feature which is usually considered as a rather minor effort in Fellini’s filmography. To conclude, even though it was slightly underwhelming, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Federico Fellini’s work.

Posted : 1 week ago on 25 April 2016 03:28 (A review of The Woman Next Door)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I always had a weak spot for François Truffaut’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Basically, following the massive critical success of ‘Le dernier métro’, Truffaut came back just a year later with this feature which was maybe less ambitious but actually more enjoyable in my opinion. Indeed, even though ‘Le dernier métro’ is definitely a French classic, somehow, I didn’t connect with the damned thing. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, sure, it was nothing really ground-breaking but I thought that both Gérard Depardieu and Fanny Ardant were really impressive and they made for a mesmerizing couple. A few years later, Truffaut would make his final directing effort, the slightly more underwhelming ‘Vivement dimanche!’ also starring Fanny Ardant who was his lover at the time and it would be already the end of the career of one of the greatest French directors that ever lived. To conclude, even though it is definitely not a masterpiece, I still had a weak spot for the damned thing and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in François Truffaut’s work.

Ah, that makes more sense. I was thinking to myself, there's no way Johan hasn't seen a movie that renowned :)

You also did it with 'Signs' lol. I swear I'm not stalking you! :)
Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Sep 2 0:57
Did you just recently get around to 'Fight Club'? If so, I'm glad you did!

I remember you'd seen it before, but under your movies most recently watched, it shows you just saw it.

Either way, excellent film!

Hi Mr Le Fourbe,

A while ago, you voted for my list of Good Movies you might have missed, and i thank you again for it. The list got bigger and messier so I decided to rearrange it in a more "user-friendly" way.

Now I really don't mean to spam, but, if you're still interested, here is a bunch of short lists (10 to 30 items), which focus on lesser-known movies (less than 300 Listal ratings) that I enjoyed and like to recommend (rated 7+). I grouped them by Genre, by Country/Region and by Theme. It's an ongoing work so i'll be adding more items in the future.

Anyway, sorry again for the spamming, and thanks for all your cool lists and reviews.
