johanlefourbe posted a review of The Damned

An average movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this movie and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Basically, I bumped into this movie in a DVD shop, if I recall it correctly, and since I have always been a fan of Luchino Visconti’s work, I thought I might as well check it out. Indeed, I alway” read more

Boyz n the Hood
Notes: There was a time, in the 90’s, when there was some kind of wave of movies dealing with the black ghettos in the US and, from all these movies, this must be the most famous one. To be honest, in this genre, I always preferred ‘Menace II Society’ which was even bleaker but there is no doubt that this movie was really good as well. Indeed, it was a realistic and heartbreaking take on the harsh reality of living in these neighborhoods, something that didn’t much change during the following 25 years. Back then, John Singleton at 24 years old became the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Best Director Academy Award and, even though many thought he had a bright future ahead, his career turned out to be only decent at best (for example, his last decent directing effort was the really weak ‘Abduction’ starring Taylor Lautner).

Notes: Well, as usual with Adam Sandler, it turned out to be pretty lame, I'm afraid. I mean, to make a comedy about vintage gaming, after above all the success of 'Wreck-It Ralp', was in fact a decent idea but it just didn't work and it turned out to be a flop at the box-office. What went wrong here? First of all, the whole concept of having some hardcode gamers saving the world was just weak and not really funny whatsoever. I mean, even the game angle was poorly developed. Indeed, at least in 'Wreck-It Ralp' or even 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World', they kept mentionning tons of different games but, here, they mostly focused on 3 or 4 games that were so old that even I, who used to be a real hardcore gamer, didn't care for them. At least, they had Pac-Man but for some reasons he was used as a villain. Why on Earth? It didn't make sense at all, even for the main character.

“Back in the 90's, I was a huge fan of Abel Ferrara, especially after watching ‘Bad Lieutenant’ which remains one of the best movies ever made in my opinion and I believe that most of his work he released at the time was really interesting. As a result, I was really eager to check this flick even” read more

The 5th Wave (2016)
Notes: Following the footsteps of Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley, Chloë Grace Moretz decided she should also have her own franchise based on a Young Adult novel, which wasn't really a bad decision career-wise. The only point was that the whole thing turned out to be pretty weak, I'm afraid. However, I don't thing that Moretz should be really blamed though. I mean, she was really charismatic and she did what she could with this material but there was not much that could be really done. Basically, the main thing that bothered me, except for the many plot-holes, was the lack of development of the characters. And, of course, even though the damned thing I might have some potential, it turned out to be just seriously boring.

“Since I’m a huge Reggae fan, of course, I had to watch this movie at some point. Eventually, 40 years later, it might look pretty cheap and since it was pretty much the very first movie of this kind ever produced in Jamaica, the directing and acting were sometimes rather weak due to some lack of e” read more

An average movie

“By now, I have seen most of the movies directed by Luc Besson and, even though he was probably regarded in the 80’s-90’s as the most promising French director, I think his career turned out to be rather underwhelming. I mean, sure, he was made some decent films but his last major critical hit wa” read more

“This is a rather weird movie.
