A good movie

Posted : 15 hours, 17 minutes ago on 17 August 2017 08:03 (A review of Bernie)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Richard Linklater’s work, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I don’t think it is was really a great story after all but Richard Linklater sure made the most of it and delivered something quite entertaining. His first masterstroke was too focus so much on the people living in this small town in Texas. In fact, some actual residents of Carthage who knew the real Bernie Tiede and Marjorie Nugent appeared in the film providing commentary on the events and their commentary was just pure comedic gold. And, of course, I was also really amazed by Jack Black who gave here easily his best performance so far. Indeed, Black always seemed to be a one-trick pony but, here, he completey disappeared to become Bernie Tiede and the end-result was just quite impressive. Eventually, the thing that bothered me the most was that Bernie’s motivation was never clearly explained. Indeed, the guy was apparently really popular among the old ladies so why on Earth would he choose Marjorie Nugent who was apparently terribly awful to everyone? The fact that she was the richest woman in town made it all the more suspicious. Furthermore, even though they tried to convince the viewers that Danny Buck, played by a pitch-perfect Matthew McConaughey, was really mean, manipulative and ambitious, in fact, I actually agreed with him when he said that Bernie was a liar, a coward and a backshooter. I mean, come on, the guy shot an old lady 4 times in the back, put her 9 months in a freezer and spent in the mean time 600 000 dollars of her money. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still pretty good and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Richard Linklater’s work.

A classic

Posted : 1 day, 15 hours ago on 16 August 2017 08:08 (A review of Mr. Hulot's Holiday)

I can’t believe it took me about 20 years to finally see another movie directed by Jacques Tati. To be honest, at the time, I actually didn’t care much for ‘Jour de fête’ but maybe it was because I had such huge expectations. Anyway, with this 2nd attempt, even though I did like it and even though it’s supposed to be be Tati’s best directing effort, I thought it was pretty good but still nothing really mind-blowing. I mean, sure, the whole thing was really sweet and clever but it was never really interesting or seriously entertaining.  It is pretty obvious that Tati was some kind of French version of Charles Chaplin but the big difference was that Chaplin put so much poetry, drama in his stories and his characters, even if they were completely silent, were so much more developed than here.  Indeed,  Tati never really allows you to care about Hulot or the different characters involved and, as a result, I had a hard time to really care about what they were going through. Still, in contrary to ‘Jour de fête’ which I saw when I was a teenager, I was able to appreciate the tone delivered by Tati and the damned thing was also a great time capsule showing how it must have been to go on holiday in France back in the 50’s. Finally, it was pretty neat to see that this character was an obvious inspiration for Rowan Atkinson when he created his Mr. Bean. To conclude, even if it didn’t really dazzle me away, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 4 days, 4 hours ago on 13 August 2017 06:50 (A review of The Double Lover)

First of all, I thought it was pretty neat to see another movie directed by François Ozon less than a year after watching his previous directing effort. On top of that, I actually enjoyed it more than 'Frantz' and this movie was more a typical Ozon feature dealing with his usual twisted characters with some rather dubious promiscuous sexuality. Indeed, most of the movie was a very entertaining and intriguing mystery and, for a very long time, I was wondering how it would end (personally, I was toying fo a while with the idea that Paul and Louis were actually one guy having a double life). Unfortunately, Ozon had to wrap everything up at some point and, like most similar thrillers, it was rather weak, I'm afraid. Indeed, after all, it turned out that the main character we even crazier than we first thought and that she imagined/fantasized the whole thing up. It was a rather weak choice because, as a viewer, you feel cheated after investing yourself for so long in the characters involved and what they were going through. It was also a really easy way out for the director. Still, even if the end didn't really work for me, the rest of the movie was fine, it looked really neat and both Marine Vacth and Jérémie Reinier should be praised as they delivered some really strong performances. To conclude,  in spite of its flaws, it still turned out to be one of the best movies directed by Ozon so far and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in this director.

A classic

Posted : 4 days, 16 hours ago on 13 August 2017 07:16 (A review of The Dirty Dozen)

Since this movie is a classic, of course, I was l really eager to check it out. Obviously, it was a major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino when he made 'Inglourious Basterds' and you could even argue that this movie is actually superior to Tarantino's movie. Indeed, the script might be more simple but, as a result, it was also not so convoluted and, above all, it was just so much less pretentious than 'Inglourious Basterds' was. So, I sure did like the damned thing, especially how brutal it was, above all in the final act. It was also interesting that Telly Salavas was playing a really ugly psychopath and maybe they could have pushed it even further by making the other soldiers ever more reprehensible but maybe it would have been too hard then to root for such despicable characters. Still, it wasn't really flawless though. Indeed, the main issue was that the damned thing was just too long. I mean, it was always entertaining but they should have trimmed the training section which went on for much too long. Still, even if their training was endless, the final act was rewarding displaying the most messed-up black op I have ever seen.  Eventually, I think they pushed it slightly too far  by making these criminals look like some super soldiers but I think they still managed to have a good balance between the humor, the entertainment and how messed-up the whole project turned out to be. To conclude, even if I don't think it is really a masterpiece, it was still a really solid WWII feature and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 5 days, 10 hours ago on 12 August 2017 12:35 (A review of Begin Again)

Since I have a weak spot for Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley and since this movie seemed to have a decent reputation, I was really eager to check it out. Well, at first, it seemed to be really promising. Indeed, even though it is usually a rather annoying gimmick, I really liked how they displayed the different journeys made by both characterts until they meet each other. Furthermore, I really loved how they displayed the process of a music-business executive trying to figure out how to build up a song around the performance of an artist. So, the beginnig was actually pretty good and, in my opinion, Ruffalo and Knightley were both convincing enough. Unfortunately, from the moment, they started to work together, the whole thing started to become less and less interesting. I mean, it wasn't only the fact that it became a really generic story of the discovery of a new artist, it was more the fact that it sometimes vastly contradicted the introduction, especially concerning Dan. Indeed, at first, they gave the viewer the impression that the guy has been washed-up for years, that he had little to no contact with his daughter for years as well but, eventually, you discover that it went on only for a rather period of time. Furthermore, even though they started to display that it is obviously really difficult to succeed in the music business, suddenly, it became way too easy for them to deliver a full album with no financial support whatsoever. On top of that, even though the concept of recording outiside was rather far-fetched, at least, it was an original idea but, unfortunately, the end-result sounded just way too polished and it was clearly not recorded outside at all. To conclude, even though the whole thing turned out to be actually rather disappointing, I still liked it though and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 1 week ago on 10 August 2017 08:47 (A review of Castle in the Sky)

Not to be confused with ‘Howl's Moving Castle’, another movie directed Hayao Miyazaki, to be honest, even if I was really eager to check this movie, I still struggled to get into the damned thing. I mean, you have to agree that the beginning was pretty much a huge mess during which most of the main protagonists were displayed without any introduction whatsoever during some rather chaotic action scene. My guess is that, since the whole thing already had a running time of 120 mins, they had to rush things somehow so they skipped a more standard introduction. As usual with Miyazaki, the main character was once again one of his typical pure and innocent girls but I always find them rather boring. At least, Pazu was slightly more interesting and entertaining. And yet, I have to admit that the damned thing slowly won me over somehow. First of all, even though it is now 30 years old, the animation was quite impressive, especially during the action scenes which were just so amazing to look at. There was also something quite mesmerizing about this mysterious floating island and the ending was quite powerful. To conclude, even though it was eventually too chaotic and messy for my taste, it was still pretty good and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in Hayao Miyazaki’s work.

An average movie

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 9 August 2017 08:03 (A review of Mary and Martha)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Hilary Swank, I thought I might as well check it out. By the way, to be honest, even though she managed to win 2 Oscars for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, her career turned out to be rather underwhelming after all and this movie was a good example, I’m afraid. First of all, to be honest, I had a rather hard time to care for her character. Indeed, what kind of daft plan was it to take her son from school and go spend 6 months in Africa? I mean, even if the outcome would have been different, would it really have improved his life? I doubt it and, the way it all ended for her son didn’t help much to appreciate her so-called great plan. At least, when she finally met Martha, the whole thing worked better and it became an interesting take on the mourning process. Still, it is always rather cringe-inducing to see such characters travelling to Africa as if they were taking the bus and I was rather amazed by how weak and sentimental her speech at the end turned out to be. Anyway, to conclude, even though the whole thing turned out to be weaker than I expected, I guess it might be worth a look, at least, if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 1 week, 2 days ago on 8 August 2017 05:13 (A review of The Last of the Mohicans)

I already saw this movie but since it was maybe 20 years go and since I had it on DVD, I was really eager to check it out again. Well, eventually, even though it turned out to be pretty good, I still didn't completely blow me away though. Eventually, the biggest problem was that the damned thing was too short in my opinion. Indeed, it could have easily lasted 3 hours and, then, they would have had enough time to properly introduce the story and the characters involved. As a result, the introduction was seriously rushed and you barely got the time to understand who was involved and what was their agenda. Indeed, within 10 minutes, you get introduced to such various groups like the British army, the French army, various Indian tribes fighting for one side or another, some colonials eager to fight for England, some not,... And, of course, it was rather hard to believe that a British lady from the upper-class would fall in love for a rough white man raised by the indians and, the other way around, you wonder why this free-spirited fellow would ever care for her. But, I guess that was the whole point of this tale as it was probably the most romantic Western I have ever seen and, in spite for a rather weak start, the rest worked actually really well. Indeed, back in those days, Michael Mann certainly knew how to direct a movie and it was visually quite impressive. On top of that, as usual, Daniel Day-Lewis was completely mesmerizing to behold and, even if the love story didn't really make much sense, he was just so concinving. To conclude, even though it wasn't really a masterpiece, it was still pretty good and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A very good movie

Posted : 1 week, 4 days ago on 6 August 2017 09:30 (A review of Dunkirk)

Of course, since I had seen all the movies directed by Christopher Nolan, I also had to watch this movie at some point. Well, it seems to be already another box-office hit for Nolan which is even more remarkable since you wouldn't expect a movie dealing with WWII to be able to compete with your usual summer blockbusters. Still, to be honest, I don't think it will be remembered as one of his best movies. I mean, sure, I was glad that he was at last doing something else than a super-hero flick or some high-concept science-fiction thriller, but at the end of the day, even if it looked different, it was still yet another thriller, something he has been doing through his whole career. Furthermore, I have seen my share of movies dealing with this conflict and, even though it was really good, I have seen better to be honest. On top of that, I didn't care much for the mixed chronology and I didn't help that really none of the involved characters was developed at all. Still, from a technical point of view, it was really quite impressive and I have to admit that this movie was just seriously entertaining. To conclude, it is possible that my rating might be slightly too generous but I still enjoyed the damned thing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Christopher Nolan's work.

Posted : 1 week, 5 days ago on 5 August 2017 04:24 (A review of Cars 3)

I was spending the week-end at my parents's house and since my little nephew wanted to check this movie, I thought I might as well check it out as well. Furthermore, since I heard it was the best installment in this franchise, I thought it might turn out to be a decent watch. Well, eventually, even though I think that my nephew did enjoy the damned thing, I really had a hard time to understand what was supposedly so good about this movie. I mean, sure, the animation was solid (it was nothing amazing though) but I  was rather suprised about how boring the story was after all. Before this movie was released, there was some interesting buzz about the fact that it was much darker than its predecessors but, eventually, its so-called darkness turned out to be vastly exaggerrated. I mean, sure, you get to see Lightning McQueen having a massive crash, something that was vastly exploited and displayed everywhere in the posters and in the trailers, but that was about it, everything else in the movie was seriously generic, predictable and rather tedious to behold and there was absolutely nothing dark at all about this tale. In fact, even though 'Cars 2' has a rather lame reputation, I actually enjoyed it slightly more than this borefest. Anyway, to conclude, even though the kids might love it (my 11 year old daughter actually clearly stated that she didn't care for it at all), it was nothing really amazing whatsoever and I hope Pixar will now finally drop this boring franchise.
