A good movie

Posted : 1 hour, 9 minutes ago on 4 August 2015 08:30 (A review of My Neighbour Totoro)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should probably re-watch it at some point. If I recall correctly, I even saw this one in the movie theater, of course, not when it was released (back then, I don’t think Hayao Miyazaki had already had his international breakthrough) but the local Art house movie theater wanted to re-release it for some reasons, probably because Miyazaki’s impressive reputation. Anyway, this movie is a perfect example about how I feel about Miyazaki’s work. Indeed, the whole thing was quite gorgeous to look at and this guy is the living proof that hand drawn animated features are still worth it and can be damned amazing visually speaking. There was also a very nice melancholic and poetic vibe and, yet, I can’t say I was blown away by the whole thing. First of all, pretty much like ‘Ponyo’, even though it was all pretty sweet, in my opinion, I think it was more oriented towards a younger audience and, in general, I had a hard time to really connect with this tale. To conclude, even though I tend to think that it is slightly overrated, it is still a really solid animated feature and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 18 hours, 8 minutes ago on 3 August 2015 03:30 (A review of My Best Friend's Wedding)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Personally, I always had a weak spot for romantic-comedies and this one is definitely a classic in this genre and, if I recall correctly, my wife really loved it. Anyway, back then when it was released, when Julia Roberts was the biggest female movie star in the world, it was a big box-office success but, to be honest, I wasn’t really blown away by the whole thing. I mean, sure, it was well made and fairly entertaining but it was just too generic and predictable for my taste to become really remarkable. I mean, when you think about it, the main character is actually pretty much a bitch and I couldn’t really root for her. In fact, Cameron Diaz, who was pretty much starting her career at her time, managed to make her character much sweeter and interesting than Julia Roberts. And of course, the always awesome Rupert Everett completely stole the show and it is thanks to this movie that he finally became noticed by the mainstream audience. To conclude, even though I’m not a huge fan, I have to admit that it is still a decent romantic-comedy and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A very good movie

Posted : 22 hours, 46 minutes ago on 3 August 2015 10:53 (A review of My Left Foot: The Story Of Christy Brown)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Back then, I was much younger, I’m pretty sure it was the first movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis that I saw and the guy just blew me away with his talent and commitment. I have to confess, I had actually never heard of Christy Brown before and, without this movie, I’m pretty sure I would have never heard of the guy ever during my whole life. To be honest, it is actually a rather straightforward biopic but even though it was fairly predictable, the main character Christy Brown was just quite fascinating thanks to Day-Lewis who was at the top of his game. Eventually, he would take this great thespian surprisingly almost 20 years to win again another Academy Award for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role with his great performance in ‘There Will Be Blood’ and he will become the first male performer to win three awards for lead roles following ‘Lincoln’. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it was a fascinating drama and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 1 day ago on 3 August 2015 09:05 (A review of Moulin Rouge!)

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick (in fact, I think I even saw it when it was released back then) and maybe I should give it a second chance at some point. Basically, it was quite a critical success, by far Baz Luhrmann’s biggest success so far, but, personally, I actually had a hard time to connect with the damned thing. I mean, sure, visually, it was really impressive, like most of the movies directed by Luhrmann, it was quite an explosion of colors and kinetic shots. Furthermore, Nicole Kidman was pretty much at the top of her game at the time, she was just perfectly cast and she was quite fascinating to behold. The main issue was that I always had a hard time with musicals in general. I mean, there are only a handful of them which actually managed to really touch me and the reason why is that most of them, instead of focusing on the plot or the characters involved, would just keep throwing some rather random songs. This movie is not an exception and I thought that the whole thing was pretty shallow. To conclude, even though I’m not a huge fan, it is still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A classic

Posted : 1 day, 2 hours ago on 3 August 2015 07:29 (A review of Monty Python and the Holy Grail)

Since I kept hearing some great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out and I had some great expectations about the damned thing. Indeed, it was the Monty Python's first 'real' movie and it has been a huge classic ever since. I remember it very well, one of my oldest childhood friends was really a huge fan and wouldn’t stop telling me that it was one of the greatest movies ever made. I ‘m pretty sure I saw this flick with him the first time around. Eventually, to my surprise, I didn’t like it much. Basically, I was never able to really connect with the jokes and I always found them more stupid than actually funny. By now, I have watched this movie already a couples of times and I have never actually really enjoyed it. I don't know, maybe I should give it another try. If I’m not mistaken, it was the first movie made by the Monty Python that I saw and, except with ‘Life of Brian’ which is indeed one of the best movies ever made, I didn’t really love any of their movies so I guess their humor is not for me. Anyway, to conclude, even though I’m not a huge fan of this movie, it is still pretty much a classic so you should check it out, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 1 day, 17 hours ago on 2 August 2015 04:24 (A review of The Opportunists)

To be honest, it is a really obscure feature so I wasn't really expecting much from it but I had the DVD already for ages (almost 4 years...), so I thought it was really time to watch the damned thing. The main reason I was actually interested in this movie in the first place was because Christopher Walken was involved and, on top of that, he was even playing the lead for once. Unfortunately, Walken himself admitted that he enjoyed his work so much that he agrees to be in pretty much all the movies proposed to him. That would explain how he could end up in a movie like this one. I mean, I have seen worse but the whole thing was just so bland and generic, at the end, after barely 80 minutes, you wonder if the damned thing did actually ever start at some point. At least, Walken, as a great professional, did his thing as usual and it was nice to see a young Vera Farmiga before she had her breakthrough but her character was really poorly developed, just like all the other characters. To conclude, it was not a complete waste of time but it wasn't far from it and I don't think this movie is worth a look.

A bad movie

Posted : 2 days, 17 hours ago on 1 August 2015 04:13 (A review of A Girl, Three Guys, and a Gun)

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since I had it for a while on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out after all. Well, it was pretty terrible and I think it is in fact a good example of how difficult it is to actually make a movie. I mean, here, they had everthing they needed, a director, some actors, a whole crew and a story which could have worked and, yet, the whole thing was just pretty much awful to look at. Where should I start? I don't know which one was worse, the directing or the acting. I mean, I'll give you that, the girls were pretty cute (there was even a really unexpected and rather weird cameo by Natasha Henstridge who must have lost her mind to show up in this) but everyone couldn't play at all, it was just cringe-inducing to behold. Concerning the directing, well, the whole thing was coherent, at least, that's something, but it was just so lifeless and really boring to watch. To conclude, it was one very weak indie feature, no one wonder has actually seen it and you should pretty much avoid it.

Posted : 3 days, 23 hours ago on 31 July 2015 10:06 (A review of Mrs. Doubtfire)

Almost a year ago, Robin Williams passed away with some really dramatic circumstances so it is with some mixed feelings that I look back at his work. For example, this movie was definitely one of his biggest box-office successes and, 20 years later, it is still very popular but, to be honest, it is not really good, I’m afraid. First of all, the whole gimmick of a man disguising himself as a woman not by choice but just to trick someone for any kind of reasons, never really appealed to me. I mean, ‘Some like it Hot’ remains by far the best one in this genre but even ‘Tootsie’ which is quite a classic never really worked for me either. In this case, sure, the make-up was pretty good and Robin Williams goes really wild with this character but the fact remains that it is actually a really stupid story. Basically, it seems that everyone has agreed that it doesn’t matter that plot is idiotic as long as we get to see Williams doing his usual hysterical act. On top of that, I thought it was just mildly amusing but never actually hilarious. To conclude, I think this movie is seriously overrated and I don’t think it is really worth a look, except maybe if you are a die-hard fan of Robin William.

Posted : 4 days, 1 hour ago on 31 July 2015 08:12 (A review of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation)

Yesterday, my wife had a great surprise. Indeed, since our youngest daughter had a sleep-over, she suggested that we should go on a date. Eventually, we went to see this movie in a very cozy movie theater where there is no separation between the chairs, lots of room for your legs, a little table with a small lamp and a button to press to get an waiter to bring you some snacks and drinks. It was just really neat and this movie was just the perfect choice for a romantic evening like this one. Indeed, it was nothing really heavy but it was still pretty damned spectacular and entertaining. Basically, Tom Cruise has finally nailed the formula for this franchise and, even though this new sequel was a slight step down from its predecessor, it still worked fine. Indeed, the action scenes were just really impressive, pretty much the best delivered by the industry right now, Simon Pegg was once again hilarious as the sidekick and I was quite impressed by newcomer Rebecca Ferguson who was just perfect as femme fatale. Eventually, it was almost a home-run but some elements still bothered me. For example, they keep giving us some really murky plots every time and the whole plot against the IMF has been done too many time before. Furthermore, it was a little too long and the main villain was rather disappointing. Still, I thought it was a decent blockbuster and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 5 days ago on 30 July 2015 09:19 (A review of Multiplicity)

I always been a huge fan of ‘Groundhog Day’ and, in my opinion, it is one of the very best romantic-comedies ever made. A few years later, it seems that Harold Ramis was going again for another clever rom-com with some fantasy elements, also starring Andie MacDowell in the love interest so I had some rather high expectations with this flick. This time, instead of Bill Murray, they went for Michael Keaton who was a great choice. Eventually, I thought it was a fairly entertaining feature but I can’t say I wasn’t really blown away. The main difference between this movie and ‘Groundhog Day’ is that even though ‘Groundhog Day’ was also based on some rather dubious and preposterous concept, it worked because it went way beyond that, giving us an awesome main character, some great jokes and even some sentimental moments that actually worked. Here, sure, the gimmick was fairly entertaining but that was pretty much the only thing this movie had to offer. I have to admit it, Michael Keaton delivered a solid performance and the guy was quite entertaining but the whole thing was still missing something to become something more than just a gimmick. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think it is a decent comedy and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

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: 11 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!

I see your list 'Listal's 100 Films To See Before You Die (2014)' is still missing a lot of votes. You should post a thread asking for people to vote.
