A good movie

Posted : 4 hours, 26 minutes ago on 29 June 2016 01:38 (A review of The Doors)

To be honest, even though this movie doesn’t have a really stellar reputation, I always had a weak spot for  the damned thing and it is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. The point is that, when this movie was released, I was just about 12 years old and there was this huge revival around The Doors (in fact, mostly thanks to this flick). Like many other teenagers at the time, my sister and I fell in love with this music and, therefore I thought at the time that this movie was just awesome. Of course, since then I sobered up and I came to realize that this movie was not so amazing. The main issue, in my opinion, is that Oliver Stone never really figured out what he should really do with Jim Morrison. Was he a pitiful drug-addict, a circus act or a misunderstood genius? Still, in spite of its flaws, you can't deny that Val Kilmer was downright amazing in his portrayal of this huge rock-star. Anyway, even though the whole thing might have been rather half-baked, I really like the damned thing, even if it is above all out of sheer nostalgia, and I think it is worth a look, especially if you are a fan of the Doors.

A bad movie

Posted : 9 hours, 16 minutes ago on 29 June 2016 08:47 (A review of Dude, Where's My Car?)

To be honest, it has been years since I have seen this flick but it was really weak, I don’t think I will waste my time again with this flick. Of course, you might argue that, with such a title, there was no way that this movie could have been worth anything but I really disagree. In fact, I actually loved the concept but, unfortunately, it was just really poorly developed and the result was rather cringe-inducing. The biggest mistake they made was to go for a PG13 rating. Sure, from a financial point of view, it is always smarter to go for this rating to reach a wider audience but this material should have been obviously R rated. Then, the second problem was that they assumed that if these characters are stoners then it means that they should be really stupid as well which is a really poor assumption. On top of that, it’s always a problem when you try to make a comedy about some stupid characters (see also ‘Dumb & Dumber’, a so-called masterpiece in this genre), most of the time, these characters never become fun and entertaining, they just remain annoying to behold. Finally, the last problem was that Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott were both seriously underwhelming. To conclude, I won’t go more into details, the whole thing was just really lame and it is not worth a look.

An average movie

Posted : 1 day, 7 hours ago on 28 June 2016 10:50 (A review of The Brothers Solomon)

Nowadays, I have access to such services like HBO, Netflix and even (the illegal) Porcorn but, before that, I was dependent on what would be broadcast on the various TV channels we have.  As a result, I have ended up watching some rather obscure movies for some rather dubious reasons and this movie was a perfect example. Indeed, the main reason I thought I might as well check it out was because I have a weak spot for Malin Akerman. Basically, she made this movie a couple of years before her breakthrough in ‘Watchmen’ but her career turned out to be rather disappointing after all. Anyway, she didn’t have a really big part, in fact, the whole thing was about 2 really boring and obnoxious brothers played by Will Arnett and Will Forte. Later on, I discovered that this movie was actually directed by Bob Odenkirk, the awesome actor playing Saul Goodman in ‘Breaking Bad’, but I’m afraid Odenkirk might be a better actor than director. Seriously, what a lame comedy… It’s always the problem when you try to make a comedy about some cringe-inducing characters (see also ‘Dumb & Dumber’, a so-called masterpiece in this genre), most of the time, these characters never become fun and entertaining, they just remain cringe-inducing to behold. Anyway, to conclude, I think I was generous with my rating here, the whole thing was a waste of time and I don’t think it is worth a look.

A classic

Posted : 1 day, 9 hours ago on 28 June 2016 08:51 (A review of Dr. No )

By now, I have seen all the James Bond installments, sometimes, even several times, but to be honest, most of them are actually rather forgettable and I would have a rather hard time to really recall most of them in details. However, there are a few exceptions and this first installment is definitely one of them. Indeed, back then, they had their lowest budget so it was probably not the most elaborate installment but it was understandable since the formula was new at the time. They still managed to already introduce many elements that they still use more than 50 years later. Indeed, the whole concept of the James Bond girl started here with the gorgeous Ursula Andress and it would always be a great challenge for many actresses to fill her shoes (most of them would ultimately fail). Dr. No would be also a really memorable villain and the blueprint for many other villains that would come later on in this franchise. And, of course, the ultimate masterstroke was James Bond himself. I mean, right from the start, he became one of the most iconic characters and even though many believed that Sean Connery was a poor choice (even Ian Fleming himself), he was just awesome giving this character many of his most famous trademark. To conclude, even though it was maybe not a masterpiece, it remains one of the best James Bond flicks and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

An average movie

Posted : 1 day, 19 hours ago on 27 June 2016 10:12 (A review of Goya's Ghosts)

Since I have always been a fan of Milos Forman's work, I was really eager to check this movie and I think it took me about 10 years to finally see the damned thing. Well, I wish I could say it was worth waiting for so long but I 'm afraid the whole thing turned out to be rather disappointing. First of all, even though I didn’t mind the international cast,  I think it was a rather odd choice to have a Swedish actor to play this Spanish master. But,  it wasn't the biggest issue here. No, the main problem I had is that the story was just a mess. Indeed, it was basically about the rise and fall of the Spanish inquisition, the invasion of Spain by Napoleon, the rise and fall and rise and fall of a Spanish priest and some family melodrama involving a poor girl being tortured and put in prison for many years for something completely ridiculous. Obviously, with all this going on, it was rather tricky to add Goya in the mix and the guys just shows up from time and time without having much impact on the proceedings.  At least,  the whole thing looked fine and the actors involved were pretty good (especially Javier Bardem) but it was certainly not enough. To conclude, I think I'm being rather generous with my rating but I guess it is still worth a look, especially if you're interested in Milos Forman's work.

A good movie

Posted : 2 days, 7 hours ago on 27 June 2016 11:03 (A review of Dune)

This movie is pretty much the stuff of legends. Indeed, even though it is probably the least regarded movie directed by David Lynch (himself always considered it a massive failure), it has now reached more or less a cult status. Anyway, it must sound surprising but I thought it was actually not bad at all. I have to admit it, the fact that  that I did read the book before watching this movie might have helped me as the story was never really confusing to me. I guess, without this previous knowledge of the material, I wouldn't have enjoyed this movie that much. Still, it was the first and last time that David Lynch was directing a big budget feature and, honestly, I thought it was pretty neat to see him at work within a totally different environment. Of course, with a director like him, the whole thing was pretty much doomed from the start but I always had a weak spot for SF features and I enjoyed the way Lynch developed this epic tale (Can you imagine if they did give him the final-cut on this production?). Apparently, Lynch didn't enjoy much being a director-for-hire and he would only make his own personal projects in the future. Anyway, to conclude, even though this movie has a really lame reputation, I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 2 days, 9 hours ago on 27 June 2016 08:10 (A review of The Dreamers)

When I heard that Bernardo Bertolucci was coming up with a new directing effort, I got pretty excited. I mean, sure, it had been already a couple of decades since he had released a great movie but the guy had such an impressive legacy so I was really eager to see this movie and I even went to see the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. For this come-back, Bertolucci decided to make something smaller, something more intimate than some of his previous work, but even though it was an interesting approach, I’m afraid it rather backfired since the whole thing had such a small scale and therefore it had little impact. It’s like the characters themselves, they tried to make you believe that they were some very interesting individuals with some fascinating thoughts but I wasn’t really convinced. It’s like showing them naked and being promiscuous, it was maybe groundbreaking in the 60’s when the action was taking place but in 2003, it was nothing really new. Still, it was pretty neat to discover a very young Eva Green who not only looked quite gorgeous but who was also really talented. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch and I think it is worth a look, especially if you are interested in Bernardo Bertolucci’s work.

A good movie

Posted : 2 days, 20 hours ago on 26 June 2016 09:17 (A review of Everest)

In my opinion, Baltasar Kormákur has a rather mixed track-record as a director but this movie sounded really intriguing and, on top of that, they managed to get a impressive cast for this movie. Anyway, it was a really ambitious project and it thought that most of it worked pretty well. Indeed, I have always been fascinated with movies dealing with climbing, it is probably due to the fact that I'm afraid of heights but, even so, there something actually spellbinding to see some people risking their life just to get on the top of a mountain. Maybe there is also a little bit of sadism involved as well. Anyway, I especially enjoyed the realistic approach they chose for this movie but I'm afraid it never reached the level of 'Touching the Void', still by far the best movie in this genre. I guess the main problem was that, even though they had a really neat cast, there were just too many characters and,  as a result, none of them was properly developed. I mean, you basically have such actresses like Keira Knightley, Robin Wright and Emily Watson who shows up from time to time just to look worried when they answer their phone. It's like the characters played by Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington, I kept expecting to learn something about these guys but it never happened as the story never spends more than 2 minutes on one single character. As a result, you never get the opportunity to really care about these men and what they went through. Still, in spite of its flaws, I think it is one of the best movies in this genre and I think it is definitely worth a look.

A good movie

Posted : 3 days, 20 hours ago on 25 June 2016 09:20 (A review of 22 Jump Street)

The first installment was supposed to be and should have been really lame but,  surprisingly, it turned out to be really fun  and enjoyable. With this sequel, it was pretty much the same,  there was no way that it could work as well and, yet, they did it again. Indeed, even though it was probably not an improvement on the first movie,  it was at least just as entertaining. Basically, this time, our heroes go to college going for another ridiculous investigation but, who cares about the plot,  it was once again another excuse to throw at us every 30 seconds some (usually) very funny meta-jokes. I especially enjoyed that they played around with the fact that there was actually something pretty gay about the relationship between the cops involved in the original TV-show. The only issue I might have had is that the running time was slightly too long for this material but it wasn’t a big deal. Right now, it seems that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller can do no wrong (indeed,  I have enjoyed all their directing efforts so far)  and their next one will be the Han Solo spin-off movie, easily their most ambitious project so far and I will definitely check it out. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it was definitely not a masterpiece whatsoever but it was still one of the most enjoyable comedies I have seen for a very long time.

Posted : 4 days, 2 hours ago on 25 June 2016 03:45 (A review of Lucky Them)

I have to admit it it, the main reason why I wanted to watch this movie was because Johnny Depp was in it. Indeed, the huge star was in this movie for just one scene but he played a crucial character, some famous musician who disappeared 10 years before the actual story took place. I wish I didn't know this character would be played by Depp as it would have been really neat to discover it while watching the damned thing  but,  without this knowledge, I guess wouldn't have watched the damned thing at all (it is also rather lame that Depp is displayed so prominently on the IMDb page for this movie). Anyway, coming back to the damned thing, I thought this story actually had some great potential. Unfortunately, in fact like many other indie features starring Toni Colette, the whole thing was trying to be really too quirky. Take for example Thomas Haden Church's character, the guy was just impossibly cringe-inducing and it was only during the 3rd act that they finally balanced this character a little bit more but the damage was already done. Then, as I mentionned before , I really liked this story but this ending really didn’t do it any justice, in my opinion. To conclude, even though this interesting material was not very well developed, it was still a decent watch but I think it could have been much better.

Radegund
Release date (U.S.) : ??? directed by : Terrence Malick with : - plot : The Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector, refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II and is executed by them in 1943. Why do I want to see this ? Even though Malick has still 2 movies to be released (hopefully in 2016), he has apparently already planning his next directing effort. To be honest, I thought that his last 2 movies ('To the Wonder' and 'Knight of Cups') were both really disappointing but he remains a fascinating director so I will definitely check this movie as well.

Man Bites Dog
Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I remember it very well when it was released In France. Indeed, at the time, there was a lot of buzz around this movie and it quickly became a huge cult classic. With this in mind, I had some rather high expectations before watching the damned thing but, to be honest, I thought it was really disappointing. I mean, the whole thing really had some potential, it started pretty well, it was a little bit like ‘Spinal Tap’ but instead of hard rockers, you had a serial killer and it had some pitch black humor. But after a while, the jokes got worse and worse with 2 top moments, one when the main character goes to a restaurant to eat some mussels and eventually throws everything up (this scenes last like 20 minutes...) and one of the final scenes when the guy rapes a woman... Eventually, I think it is in fact one of the most overrated movies ever.

I only saw The Exorcist once, back when it got re-released to theatres for whichever anniversary that was, and I too found it overrated. As many votes as it's racking up I'll find out very soon whether I still feel the same.

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!
