Posted : 6 hours, 46 minutes ago on 8 February 2016 10:32 (A review of The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet)

After  4 long years, at last Jean-Pierre Jeunet was finally coming up with a new directing effort so, of course,  I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, I didn't care much for his last movie,  'Micmacs à tire-larigot', and this last one barely got noticed when it was released but I still hoped it would be at least a decent watch. Well, at the end of the day, I have to admit that this movie turned out to be even more underwhelming,  I'm afraid. I mean, it was not bad at all, I'll give you that, and it was visually really neat, which was something rather expected from this director, but I guess I'm getting a little bit tired of his obsession of delivering every time again some supposedly quirky and whimsical tale. Seriously, it was a rather weak story with some fairly uninteresting characters and the whole thing was in fact rather tedious to watch. Basically, it felt like a really generic and predictable children story. To conclude, even though the whole thing was rather disappointing, it was still far from being a bad movie and I still believe it is worth a look, especially if you're interested in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's work.

Posted : 12 hours, 55 minutes ago on 8 February 2016 04:23 (A review of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer)

To be honest, it has been ages since I have this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. In fact, I still remember very well the first time I saw the damned thing. In fact, at the time, I had never heard of this flick before and it is my brother-in-law who brought it to our attention saying that it had a very notorious reputation, that it was one of the scariest movies ever made. So, we sat there with the 3 of us (my sister, her boyfriend and myself), expecting something really horrible to happen but, to be honest, we didn’t care much for the whole thing. I mean, sure, it was well made and Michael Rooker gave a really solid performance but, in my opinion, the movie didn’t have much else to offer. Basically, it is a decent serial-killer flick and the only original thing was that the guy didn’t get caught at the end. Apparently, that was something that deeply shocked the viewers at the time, that someone so evil would get away with doing something so terrible but, to be honest, I thought this approach was clever but not much more than that, I’m afraid. 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 : 17 hours, 3 minutes ago on 8 February 2016 12:15 (A review of Hedwig And The Angry Inch)

To be honest, I wonder how I actually ended up watching this flick. The main reason was probably that I kept hearing some really good things about this movie and it seemed to be a really wild cult-classic. Eventually, even though I thought it was a decent watch and I was definitely able to appreciate it, I can’t say it really blew me away though. It’s not that the whole thing really shocked me, not at all, in fact, it was pretty much the whole point of this flick. Honestly, I think I just didn’t care much about these characters and what they were going through. At the end of the day, it all depends where you stand regarding such over-the-top extravagant characters. If you love this kind of characters, you will probably love this movie, otherwise, I’m not sure this movie will be really for you. Anyway, eventually, after this promising directing debut, it would take John Cameron Mitchell 5 years to finally come up with a follow-up which would be the even more controversial ‘Shortbus’ which was equally flawed but still interesting to watch.  To conclude, even though I didn’t really connect with the whole thing, it was still something quite original, only therefore it already deserves some extra credit, and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 1 day, 7 hours ago on 7 February 2016 10:08 (A review of Jersey Boys)

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this movie but since it was directed by Clint Eastwood, I was still eager to check it out. First of all, I thought it would be an adaptation of the musical of the same name but, no, it was in fact a really straightforward biopic of this band. It should have been an improvement  since I'm not a huge fan of the musical genre but, even so, I really didn’t care much about the damned thing. Above all, I thought the whole thing was just seriously boring. I mean, it took them at least 1 hour before they finally released their first hit, so it was pretty slow but, on top of that, everything that happened during that time was rather underwhelming. Even worse, from  the moment they got their breakthrough, the whole thing became even more boring. Honestly, I wonder what Eastwood saw in this story and, at first, I thought he was just checking the musical genre of his bucket list but he decided to do something even less daring after all. To conclude, even though I have seen worse, I still believe it is one of the weakest directing efforts delivered by Clint Eastwood so far and I don't think it is really worth a look.

A classic

Posted : 2 days, 20 hours ago on 6 February 2016 08:47 (A review of Grease)

Yesterday, I proposed to my wife to watch a movie but since she didn't care for anything I had in mind, I suggested watched again this movie. For me, it was only the 2nd time I saw it (as a matter of fact, the 1st time around was also with my wife many years ago) but she had seen it countless of times and it is definitely a childhood classic for her. Well, eventually, as I expected, I was seriously bored by the whole thing. I mean, in fact, I was even planning to give it an even lower rating but since there were a couple of good tunes and since the dancing was pretty neat, I gave it a few extra points but it doesn't change the fact that I didn't like it much. Basically, the main issue I have with the damned thing is that not only it is terribly sweet and cheesy but it is in fact really about nothing at all. I mean, I believe that if you love movies because they tell you a great story or show you some compelling characters or talk about some interesting subjects, then I have some serious doubts that you will like this movie. Seriously, it is not very often that I came accross such a successful movie which turned out to in fact so empty. To conclude, I think I'm being actually generous with my rating here but I guess it is still worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 3 days, 17 hours ago on 5 February 2016 11:47 (A review of Heartbreakers)

To be honest, I wonder how I actually ended up watching this flick. Indeed, it really looked lame but, somehow, I still ended up watching the damned thing. Anyway, for once, I have to admit that it turned out to be in fact a rather decent comedy which I really didn’t expect. In fact, by now, I have seen about half of the movie starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and it is by far the best one she has made in my opinion. At the end of the day, it doesn’t mean that this movie was in fact great, it means that, even though I have to admit that she is extremely lovely to look at, her career has been rather underwhelming after all. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I thought it was a rather effective dark comedy and, above all, Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love Hewitt were perfectly cast here. Unfortunately, at some point, they decided that the whole thing couldn’t be mean all the way, so they softened up the tone slowly towards the end and, as a result, it all became rather sentimental and boring which was too bad. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think it is actually a decent comedy and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 3 days, 20 hours ago on 5 February 2016 09:08 (A review of Mannenharten)

I wasn’t really expecting much from this flick but since my wife and I have a weak spot for romantic-comedies, I thought we might as well check it out. Eventually, the whole thing pretty much used the same concept as  ‘Alles is Liefde’ which was already a copy of ‘Love Actually’ so the whole thing felt really derivative, that’s for sure. The main issue with this kind of movies (even with ‘Love Actually’ which I always found rather overrated) is that, instead of giving the viewers a fully-fledged story, they give a whole bunch of half-baked little tales. There were still here and there some really solid scenes though. For example, the best scene was easily the one involving Fabian Jansen (obviously playing a character inspired by what Zach Galifianakis did in ‘The Hangover’ franchise) during the most disastrous date you could think of. It was really awesome and quite hilarious but, unfortunately, everything else afterwards involving this guy had nothing to do with this brilliant bit and, completely at random, he meets a woman in a supermarket and falls in love with her. The worst thing about this is that they first convince us that the guy is pretty much a nightmare and, yet, this very cute girl falls for him for no obvious reasons.  And that’s basically how all those love stories were handled. To conclude, even though I have seen worse, I didn’t really care much for this movie and I don’t think it is really worth a look.

A good movie

Posted : 4 days, 18 hours ago on 4 February 2016 10:25 (A review of Hero)

To be honest, it has been ages since I have since this movie and maybe I should check it out again at some point. Anyway, I have noticed that it didn’t really get much love but I thought it was actually a fairly decent dark satire. Indeed, even though it was maybe not really amazing, I thought it was quite entertaining and it worked well for me.  Basically, it shows how we try to kid ourselves that we are all fine people, when, in fact, people tend to be rather messed up and this movie tried to play around with this idea. Eventually, it never became really dark  like, for example, ‘The King of Comedy ‘ (such an amazing movie directed by Martin Scorsese that really deserves much more love) . As a result, I have to admit that the whole thing never really did reach its full potential and, with such a neat concept, with a such a great cast, I should have been in fact much better but I still think it was quite entertaining. To conclude, I really have a weak spot for this movie, I believe it is quite underrated and it is definitely worth a look.

Posted : 5 days, 6 hours ago on 3 February 2016 10:49 (A review of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

I remember it very well when this movie was released. Indeed, it was a huge box-office success but, to be honest, I didn't appeal to me at all and it was only a year later that I finally saw it in French at a friend's house (eventually, I would watch it again years later in English with my wife and then again in Dutch with my kids). Eventually, I have to admit that it was actually better than I expected. Indeed, it was visually really neat and they did manage to create a really fascinating magical world. Still, there were enough elements that did bother me though. Basically, even though everything about this world and this wizard school was really cool, this plot about the philosopher's stone was seriously underwhelming. On top of that, the 3 young actors portraying the lead characters delivered some really poor performances. Rupert Grint was the least worst of them but Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson were rather pathetic and it would take them several years to finally deliver something decent. Finally, and that was really the main issue with this installment and the following one, it was how the tone didn't match at all the mood of the rest of the franchise. Indeed, while most of the movies were pretty dark, this movie was just really childish and you never got the feeling that anything was really at stake. To conclude, even though I believe it is rather overrated, it is a still a decent blockbuster and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

A good movie

Posted : 5 days, 15 hours ago on 3 February 2016 01:31 (A review of Heaven & Earth)

To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this movie and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, even though ‘Platoon’ and ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ were both some massive critical success, it seems that many viewers tend to forget it but Oliver Stone actually made a trilogy about the Vietnam war (as a matter of fact, Stone was even working on a 4rth Vietnam movie called 'Pinkville' which was cancelled at the last minute). For some reason, even though the other movies in this trilogy were critically acclaimed, this one was actually barely noticed when it was released. It's a shame though because, even though it was maybe not a great masterpiece,  it was still a pretty good drama with a very solid performance by the always dependable Tommy Lee Jones. The only issue I can think of is that, especially if you compare it to the two other Vietnam installments, the whole thing was rather unfocused. Still, it is probably one of the most obscure movies made by Oliver Stone but it is probably also one of the most underrated ones he made and it is much better than anything he has released in the last 10 years.

All About My Mother
Notes: Pedro Almodovar is one of those directors that I have always admired but he never became a personal favorite of mine. Indeed, he is what you can call a real author who has created his own style and, therefore, he always got my respect but, honestly, I always had a hard time with his work and this movie was not an exception. Basically, it is thanks to this movie that Almodovar started to gain some real worldwide success (it even won the Academy Award for the Best Foreign movie). To be honest, like I said before, I did like it but, somehow, it didn’t really blow me away. It develops the usual themes you can find in almost all Almodovar as it focuses on some rather messed-up and sometimes annoying women but, somehow, they are strong and full of personality and, therefore, they are still interesting to follow. In this case, the story was actually quite fascinating but, towards the end, it started to get pretty murky and I lost my interest a little bit. Eventually, I think that his following feature, ‘Hable con ella’, was actually much more compelling but it is all a matter of taste.

Hello Johan. I need some help with my poll 'Listal's 100 Films To Die Before You See'. It's doing really badly, can you ask your friends to enter please? Thanks!
Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Sep 2 5:11
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, 5 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!

Hi Mr Le Fourbe,

A while ago, you voted for my list of Good Movies you might have missed, and i thank you again for it. The list got bigger and messier so I decided to rearrange it in a more "user-friendly" way.

Now I really don't mean to spam, but, if you're still interested, here is a bunch of short lists (10 to 30 items), which focus on lesser-known movies (less than 300 Listal ratings) that I enjoyed and like to recommend (rated 7+). I grouped them by Genre, by Country/Region and by Theme. It's an ongoing work so i'll be adding more items in the future.

Anyway, sorry again for the spamming, and thanks for all your cool lists and reviews.
