Posted : 16 hours, 53 minutes ago on 24 June 2017 12:27 (A review of Dark Tide)

To be honest, I didn't expect much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Halle Berry, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, unfortunately, it turned out to be really weak and, at this point, you wonder if she will ever showed up in something really worthwhile. At least, she still looks insanely gorgeous, even at 50 years old, but I'm afraid that it was the only thing this movie had to offer, the fact that you get to see Halle Berry in a wet suit. Seriously, ever since 'Jaws' became the highest grossing movie ever made, they have tried to make some other thrillers around this dangerous animal but these movies always turn out to be pretty lame and this movie was not an exception. Eventually, I'm not sure what bothered me the most, the fact that the story was just so generic and boring or that the dialogues were extremely weak. I mean, even Olivier Martinez was just annoying with this French accent. Does he really talk like that in English or did he make that up? Eventually, the most notable thing about this movie would be that, during this shoot, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez hooked together, they even got married later on but they still got divorced only 3 years later so the whole thing was definitely a big waste of time for everyone involved. Anyway, to conclude, I think I have been actually really generous with my rating here and the damned thing is really not worth a look.

Posted : 2 days, 8 hours ago on 22 June 2017 08:38 (A review of Hours)

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from the damned thing but since it was on the TV, I thought I might as well check it out. At first, I wondered if it was really appropriate to make a generic thriller taking place during such a tragedy like Katerina but I have to admit that the whole thing actually really had some potential. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for minimalist movies focusing only on one character and the late Paul Walker gave here easily the most solid performance of his career. Unfortunately, the makers made one crucial mistake that pretty much ruined the whole thing for me. Indeed, right  from the moment the incubator started to show some battery issues, they set the lifetime of the battery to only 3 minutes which was just way too short. Right then, I wondered how they would manage to keep the plot going on if the guy would need to go back every 3 minutes to crank the god damned thing but, eventually, , well, they pretty much cheated. Indeed, about 80% of the time the main character went away to do wathever he had to do, he was gone for much too long which was just silly and annoying. It could have been helped easily by setting the time to 15 or even 10 minutes at first but, no, they went for something completely unbelievable that ruined an actually solid feature. Anyway, to conclude, if you can forget this huge mistake, it is actually watchable but, otherwise, I don't think it is really worth a look.

Posted : 3 days, 9 hours ago on 21 June 2017 07:50 (A review of The Fundamentals of Caring)

To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority but since it was on Netflix and since it was suggested by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out.  Well, eventually, I had a hard time to judge the damned thing. First of all, care-giving is one the greatest jobs ever, in fact, it was a job that my father had for a while, mostly because he was/is a foreigner without enough qualifications so it was basically the only thing he would be hired for. Anyway, this movie gave a decent view on this job but there was still enough stuff that did bother me though. First of all, even though Trevor was described as a supposedly impossible client, the guy seemed to be pretty relaxed, witty and with a healthy sense of humor and I'm pretty sure my dad would have been glad to have such an easy client. Furthermore, why on Earth did they have to go on a road-trip? In my opinion, it would have made much more sense to slowly build it up, making some small trips instead and going each time again further from Trevor's home. Finally, even though it was pretty sweet that they would find  a teenager hitchiker so that Trevor could finally hang out with a cute girl, they pushed it just too far by having her staying with them several days. I'm not saying that it was inappropriate, it's just that it wasn't realistic at all. Anyway, to conclude,  even though it didn't really convince me, it was still a decent watch and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 4 days, 20 hours ago on 20 June 2017 08:34 (A review of Kaboom)

After watching ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ (which was pretty good) and ‘Smiley Face’ (which was pretty lame), I was quite eager to check the feature that Gregg Araki did direct between these 2 movies. Well, I really liked the way it started and the damned thing had seriously some potential. Indeed, it was one of the best depictions of college life I have seen in a very long time. Furthermore, I loved Araki’s approach towards sexuality which was basically that almost no one is actually totally gay or hetero. Eventually, even though the characters were really promiscuous, it was never displayed as something really depraved or depressing like in ‘The Rules of Attraction’ for example and this approach was also really refreshing. Unfortunately, even though this material was really interesting and more than enough to deliver a strong movie, for some reasons, Gregg Araki thought it would be a good idea to add a really misguided plot about some conspiracy involving an apocalyptic cult with some paranormal gifts. Seriously, it was so weak, so half-baked, it felt as if Araki had watched ‘Donnie Darko’ too many times and thought he could pull something similar but the end-result was just rather pathetic. It’s too bad because everything else in this movie was actually really solid. Anyway, to conclude, even though this movie didn’t really work, I still think it is worth a look though, especially if you are interested in Gregg Araki’s work.

A good movie

Posted : 6 days, 11 hours ago on 18 June 2017 05:55 (A review of Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man)

This movie is probably one of the most obscure movies directed by Bernardo Bertolucci but I was still eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I have to admit that I actually had a hard time to get into this flick (in fact, I even dozed off a couple of times but maybe it was because it was so damned hot when I watched the damned thing). It doesn't mean that it was a bad movie, not at all, and it reminded me of one of my favorite movies directed by Akira Kurosawa called 'Tengoku to jigoku'. Indeed, both movies were about some elderly rich men dealing with the kidnapping of their son. However, if Kurosawa managed to make from this material one of the most realistic and gripping thrillers I ever seen, Bertolucci went for something completely different and made a drama instead. It wasn't actually a bad idea though and Ugo Tognazzi did deliver a decent performance but it was never really clear what Bertolucci tried to achieve here. Indeed, was it a political movie? Were we supposed to laugh at this supposedly ridiculous man? It was never really clear and, to be honest, I'm not sure if I really cared. Anyway, to conclude, my rating might have been too generous here but I still think it is worth a look,  especially if you are interested in Bertolucci's work.

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 16 June 2017 09:33 (A review of The Mummy)

Since this movie was so poorly received, I didn't expect much from the damned thing but Nick, my step-son, was really eager to check it out. Well, in fact, probably because I had such low expectations but, to be honest, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, this mummy concept remains rather limited and I thought the makers did a decent job. Sure, it was still nothing  really amazing but the action scenes were quite spectacular. Still, even though the action scenes were entertaining enough, they were maybe too many of them, and, as a result, you get to see the mummy in the streets of London causing some major damages only for a few minutes which was rather disappointing. Concerning Tom Cruise, even though the guy doesn't rule the box-office anymore (no one does nowadays),  he remains a decent lead actor and I liked the fact that they tried to show that his character was not really a hero, even if this aspect could have been better developed. It was also obviously a gimmick to have the mummy played by a woman this time around but Sofia Boutella was seriously charismatic, in spite of the obvious limitations of her character. Eventually, you might wonder if they will move on with their 'Dark universe' considering the lackluster enthusiasm towards  this movie and the scenes connecting this movie with the other characters which would be involved in this universe felt really forced and rather awkward. Anyway, even though this movie has already a lame reputation, I think it was actually worth a look but don't expect anything really amazing before watching the damned thing.

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 16 June 2017 07:33 (A review of Jeff, Who Lives At Home)

I’m well aware that the Duplass brothers are the leaders of the mumblecore genre but I haven’t seen much of their work so far and since I didn’t care much for this movie, I’m not sure if I will make much of an effort to check the rest of their work.  To be honest, I’m not really sure what the mumblecore genre is/was about but this movie was basically another quirky indie comedy which is something I have come to dread more and more recently. In this case, it was made even worse by the fact that the main characters were both some really pathetic losers. In fact, even the sub-plot involving Susan Sarandon didn’t really work. First of all, Sarandon was just miscast here. Indeed, to play a lonely woman craving for attention, they shouldn’t have cast one of the most charismatic woman in this age group. Furthermore, imagine if Sarandon’s character would have been a heterosexual man receiving some flirtatious messages from another male colleague? It would have been rather cringe-inducing and shows how misguided the whole thing was.  And, yet, there were some nice scenes here and there. For example, the scene when they crashed the Porsche was just priceless. Furthermore, all the actors involved (Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon) delivered some solid performances. To conclude, even though it didn’t really work for me, I have to admit that it was still a decent watch after all and I guess it is worth a look but only if you like the genre.

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 15 June 2017 07:36 (A review of Made in U.S.A.)

It’s only after watching about 10 movies directed by Jean-Luc Godard that I came to the conclusion that I’m actually not a huge fan of his work. Indeed, nmany years ago, I saw and really loved ‘A bout de souffle’ which is still one of my all-time favorie movies but everything else I have seen from this director didn’t really impress me after all and this movie was not different, I’m afraid. I mean, I do admire how the guy rejected most of the traditional rules involved in movie making, basically creating his own experimental style, but, in my opinion, the end-result was maybe artistic but also seriously random. At least, Anna Karina was once again so charismatic and it was rather funny that between ‘Une femme est une femme’ (the first movie she made with Godard) and this feature made 5 years later, she almost completely lost her accent when speaking French. There were also some pretty neat cameos from Marianne Faithfull, another Japanese singer called Kyôko Kosaka and, of course, the always awesome Jean-Pierre Léaud. Anyway, to conclude, even though I had a hard time to really care for the damned thing, I still think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in Godard’s work.

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 13 June 2017 07:37 (A review of Lone Survivor)

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick and since there was a really neat cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it seems that this movie belongs to this sub-genre of the failed military mission based on some true events (the most famous one  in this genre must be ‘Black Hawk Down’).  In this case, the whole thing turned out to be some kind of mix between ‘300’ and ‘American Sniper’ and, while I did like ‘300’, I can’t say I really cared much for ‘American Sniper’  which must be one of the most overrated movies released recently but, all in all, this movie was not bad at all. To be honest, when they started the movie with some documentary footage of some actual SEALS training, I have to admit that I had some doubts. Indeed, it seemed rather disrespectful to compare some actual soldiers with some actors who would only pretend to be involved in some combat situations. However, it did make sense after all because, thanks to this introduction, you could understand that those guys have received some  of the most difficult training ever conceived in order to survive such difficult, even impossible, combat situations. Anyway, to conclude, even though it didn’t really blow me away, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 1 week, 6 days ago on 11 June 2017 08:56 (A review of The Three Stooges)

To be honest, I didn't expect much from this movie but since it was the last movie directed by the Farrelly brothers that I hadn't seen yet, I still wanted to check it out. Well, unfortunately, as usual with these guys, I didn't care much for the damned thing, I'm afraid. First of all, I have to admit it, even though I have heard about The Three Stooges, I have actually never seen one of their sketches but, apparently, this movie was quite respectful. Anyway, maybe this kind of humor was awesome back in those days but I'm afraid it didn't grow old very well and now it looks just annoying and not entertaining whatsoever. For the Farrelly brothers, this movie was yet another flop, even after spending about a decade on this project but the fact that all the famous actors involved at some point (Jim Carrey, Benicio Del Toro, Sean Penn) dropped was not a good omen and the actors they got instead didn't really impress me but, on the other hand, they weren't not helped by this material. Anyway, to conclude, maybe the fan of The Three Stooges will love the damned thing but I thought it was rather cringe-inducing to behold and I don't think it is really worth a look.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? directed by : Paul Verhoeven with : Virginie Efira plot : A 17th-century nun in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion, and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic love affair. Why do I want to see this ? Following his critical success with 'Elle', it seems that Paul Verhoeven will keep making movies in France for the time being. Well, it really sounds like a very good story and it could be some perfect material for the Dutch director. However, during the last 20 years, Verhoeven has been struggling to get his projects made, in spite of its solid reputation, and I'm afraid this movie might be cancelled at some point.
