An average movie

Posted : 20 hours, 58 minutes ago on 23 July 2016 09:31 (A review of Hang 'Em High)

Since I have always had a weak spot for Clint Eastwood, I was quite eager to check this flick. Apparently, it was another Western he made just a couple of years after the Dollar trilogy. Eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more than that, I'm afraid. I think the introduction was the best part. Indeed, right from the start,  you get to see the main character hanging for something he didn't commit and you wonder what might happen after that. I mean, it is not very often that you get to see Eastwood on the other side of the law, especially  in a Western, but,  unfortunately, he got of the hook fairly easily and the rest of the movie was rather typical and predictable. Clint Eastwood basically played his typical tough no-nonsense cowboy which was ok but the movie didn't have much else to offer. First of all, what was this whole about the hanging stuff? Were we supposed to blame it? It was never clear and never really interesting enough. Then, I thought that the running time was just too long which wasn't helped by a rather pedestrian obligatory romantic sub-plot. As a sidenote, it was pretty neat to see Dennis Hopper in a very small but rather memorable part. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent Western and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A very good movie

Posted : 1 day, 21 hours ago on 22 July 2016 08:57 (A review of Elite Squad: The Enemy Within)

Since I really loved 'Tropa de Elite', of course, I was quite eager to check this sequel. Well, eventually, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure, and even though I think I still preferred the first installment, this movie was definitely a worthy follow-up. This time, instead of focusing on the war on drugs like its predecessor, they displayed the fight against the massive corruption in Brazilia showing that it goes all the way up in the hierarchy. Once again, not only it was an incredibly interesting feature but it was also a really entertaining nail-biting thriller. The only complaint I might have was the fact that the inclusion of the family life of the main character didn't work very well. Indeed, even if the main character himself tells us at some point that his main focus is his work and not his private life, it keeps popping up constantly during the whole thing. It didn't help either that his wife had remarried with another major player in this war adding some unwelcome personal conflict in the mix,  a conflict which had not much to do with the main topic. But that wasn't a big issue as the whole thing was seriously spellbinding to behold. To conclude,  it was an impressive realistic thriller and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 2 days, 10 hours ago on 22 July 2016 08:27 (A review of A Summer's Tale)

I remember it very well, this was the very first movie directed by Éric Rohmer that I had the pleasure to see. I must have been 16 years old, I saw it in the movie theater and I thought it was one of the most charming movies I ever saw. To be honest, I don’t think that this tale or those character were really amazing but I was quite impressed by Rohmer’s sober and natural directing style and all the actors involved delivered some solid performances. Basically, when I saw this movie, I was quite young and since it was about a young man falling in love with 3 different girls, it was really easy for me to connect with this guy. At the end of the day, since it was dealing with some summer flings, it was rather frivolous but there was still something quite mesmerizing about the damned thing. Eventually, I would also see the follow-up ‘Conte d’automne’ in the movie theater but even though it was also a decent watch, I really preferred this movie though. Unfortunately, after all these years, I have still not watched the 2 first installments in this cycle which is quite a shame. Anyway, to conclude, it is actually one of my favorite romantic features and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Éric Rohmer’s work.

Posted : 3 days, 8 hours ago on 21 July 2016 09:46 (A review of Two English Girls)

To be honest , it has been a while since I have seen this movie. Indeed, back in the 90’s, I discovered François Truffaut’s work and I managed to watch 2/3 of his movies. Anyway, this movie was not one of my his  acclaimed ones, it apparently didn’t get much love when it was released, but Truffaut really loved the damned thing. Eventually, it was not really the most accessible movie directed by the French master but I really liked the mood and there was definitely something quite mesmerizing about it. The most interesting thing about this movie, in my opinion, was to see Jean-Pierre Léaud finally dropping the Antoine Doinel character who was fascinating, one of the most interesting characters delivered by the French cinéma, but it was really time for something new for this talented character, especially with this director. Eventually, the main issue, I guess, is that even though this romantic triangle was interesting, it never really blew me away either and I always find it rather difficult to really care about the so-called ‘difficult’ love life of the upper-class in such period pieces. Still, to conclude, even though it was maybe not a masterpiece, it was still a fine romantic feature and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in François Truffaut’s work.

A good movie

Posted : 3 days, 10 hours ago on 21 July 2016 07:31 (A review of Chef)

This movie was not really a priority for me but since it was soon to be removed from HBO, I thought I might as well check it out. After directing quite a few blockbusters with some various end-results, Jon Favreau decided to go for something smaller this time. Well, it turned out to be a fine watch, in fact, it was easily one of the best movies I have seen about a chef and his restaurant. Indeed, the food was really gorgeous to look at, I don’t think I have ever seen anything like this before (maybe in ‘Yin shi nan nu’ but it was ages ago since I saw it) and the cooking process has never been displayed better than in this movie. I think my favorite moment was actually when he prepared the grilled cheese sandwich for his kid. It had totally nothing to do with the actual story but it looked just so awesome. Furthermore, I really liked this main character, Jon Favreau gave himself a very nice role and I believe he gave here the best performance of his career. Unfortunately, pretty much everything else in the movie was not really impressive, I’m afraid. Indeed, the story was really pedestrian and generic. I mean, it is the second movie in a row in which I saw a bogus family drama with the main character being divorced (FYI, I saw ‘San Andreas’ yesterday). Why does all these guys always have to be divorced? It is just a cheap way to add some fake conflict to a story. The other thing that disappointed me was the fact that, even though the whole thing was about the main character getting a food truck, he actually drops it at the end to work again in a regular restaurant. Then, finally, the last thing that bothered me is that, except for the main character, all the other characters were rather poorly developed and some of them, like Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr. and Dustin Hoffman should have been provided more screen-time or removed completely. To conclude, even though it didn’t completely work, I thought it was still a decent feelgood feature and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 4 days, 6 hours ago on 20 July 2016 11:46 (A review of Le Film de les Nuls)

I remember it very well when this movie was released in France. Indeed, it became a massive cult-classic and I can’t say how many people I heard saying that they loved the damned thing. To be honest, at the time, I was just about 14 years old and even though I was well aware about Les Nuls (a very famous group of comedians in France at the time), I wasn’t really familiar with their work. Indeed, back then, there was no Youtube and they were working for Canal+ which was, and still is, an encrypted channel. Anyway, since I kept hearing some great things, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I thought it was a decent watch but, to be honest, it didn’t really blow me away. Basically, it is a ridiculous and absurd comedy with some over-the-top jokes coming at you every 30 seconds. Eventually, if you really love the genre, then you will have a blast watching this, otherwise, it might be rather borderline cringe-inducing. Well, in my case, I thought it was fairly entertaining but also seriously moronic and I don’t believe that a movie can be great when it is based on so much stupidity. Anyway, to conclude, even though I think it is slightly overrated, it is still definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in French comedies.

A good movie

Posted : 4 days, 8 hours ago on 20 July 2016 10:08 (A review of Autumn Tale)

I remember it very well, the very first movie directed by Éric Rohmer that I had the pleasure to see was ‘Conte d’été’. Indeed, I must have been 16 years old, I saw it in the movie theater and I thought it was one of the most charming movies I ever saw. With this in mind, I was really eager to see this follow-up which would be the finally chapter in this cycle directed by Rohmer (after all these years, I have still not watched the 2 first installments which is quite a shame). Eventually, even I thought it was pretty good, I still enjoyed more ‘Conte d’été’. I mean, Rohmer brought back his typical sober and natural directing style and all the actors delivered some solid performances but I cared slightly less for the characters this time. Basically, when I saw these movies, I was around 16-18 years old, and ‘Conte d’été’ was about a young man falling in love with 3 different girls and it was really easy for me to connect with this guy. With this movie, Rohmer was mostly focusing on some women in their 40’s and, while it was interesting, it was not as mesmerizing as the teenage romances displayed in ‘Conte d’été’. To conclude, 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 Éric Rohmer’s work.

Posted : 4 days, 10 hours ago on 20 July 2016 07:32 (A review of San Andreas)

This movie was not really a priority for me but since it was soon to be removed from HBO, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, I thought it was not bad at all. Indeed, I thought it was a rather well made and really spectacular disaster feature. Furthermore, once again, Dwayne Johnson displayed that he is probably the most dependable action movie star in the world. Concerning Alexandra Daddario, she might have been slightly too old to play Dwayne Johnson’s daughter and she was so gorgeous that it was almost distracting but I’m not sure if it was actually a real issue.  Concerning the story,  usually,  with this genre, they show the mayhem from various point of views by providing many characters with their own sub-plot but, here, surprisingly, they decided to focus only on one family instead. It actually worked fairly well, even if it was rather difficult to believe that a rescue pilot would be alone in this helicopter and would be allowed to use his helicopter to rescue his own family during such a major disaster instead of doing his actual job. What bothered me even more was the fact that the main character was divorced. Indeed, this family drama was just seriously generic and pedestrian and it didn’t add much to the whole thing. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think it was a decent watch though and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 5 days, 10 hours ago on 19 July 2016 07:29 (A review of Something to Talk About)

Following the amazing ‘What's Eating Gilbert Grape’, still one of my favorite movies after all these years, Lasse Hallström came up with this drama. This movie was also written by Callie Khouri who won just a couple of years before an Academy Award for writing ‘Thelma & Louise’ and there was a high-profile cast involved (Julia Roberts, Dennis Quaid, Robert Duvall, Gena Rowlands, Gena Rowlands) so the expectations were pretty high. Well, eventually, I didn’t get much love when it was released, I’m afraid. Personally, I thought it was not bad but I was still  nothing really exceptional, that’s for sure. Eventually, I think it depends where you stand concerning Julia Roberts. I mean, if you have a weak spot for this actress, you will probably have a good time watching this flick but, if you can’t stand her, it will probably bore you. Personally, I always had some mixed feelings towards this actress and even though I have to admit that she was quite charming back in those days, I always thought that her range as an actress was just really limited. It was also pretty much the same thing concerning Dennis Quaid, an actor always fine to watch but never really fascinating. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think this movie was a decent watch, above all thanks to Hallström’s solid directing and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 6 days, 6 hours ago on 18 July 2016 11:53 (A review of School of Rock)

Even though Richard Linklater has directed 2 of the best movies released recently (‘Boyhood’ and ‘Before Midnight’), somehow, this director is still not really among my top favorites. I don’t know, even though his movies are usually interesting, sometimes, I actually barely care for them and this movie is a perfect example. Basically, it was one of the very few attempts of Linklater to direct a commercial feature and it was actually a big hit at the box-office when it was released (it was even for quite some time the highest grossing musical comedy of all time). Well, to be honest, even though the whole thing was pretty much tailor-made for Jack Black and even though I have to admit that it was fairly entertaining, I can’t say it really blew me away though. The main issue I had is that the whole thing seemed to be too easy. Indeed, the music was really neat and I really helped that Black had some feeling for this music genre but the plot followed too much the formula that you usually get with this genre. Still, in spite of its flaws, it was a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

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.

Hope all is well with you, my friend. :)

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, 10 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!
