A good movie

“I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. First of all, after watching all his amazing Wallace & Gromit shorts, it was just really neat that Nick Park was coming up with this first full length feature with the same clay-motion techni” read more

The Vanishing (1988)
Notes: For years, I have heard that this movie was one the best Dutch movies ever made so I was really dying to see it. So, I have been waiting all those years and even though I have been living in the Netherlands for almost 10 years, for some weird reasons, it was never on TV whereas the disappointing American remake has been broadcast at least 3 times already... Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, it maybe not be my favorite Dutch movie but it is definitely in the Top 3 (behind 'Turks Fruit' and 'Simon'). Basically, it is one of the best thrillers I have ever seen. I mean, if Hitchcock was still alive, he would make such movies. In this genre, it is very original and it goes against the annoying American stereotypes. Indeed, even though I always find thrillers rather entertaining, I also find them underwhelming because they always display some unnecessary shootings, chases, explosions and stupid twists. Not here. Here, you have a fascinating character study of two obsessed men chasing some ideals and it was just spellbinding to watch.

The Change-Up
Note : Well, eventually, it turned out to so much worse than I expected. Seriously, pretty much nothing worked with this movie. First of all, I want to point out that the body-swap thing is one of the worst gimmicks out there, it almost never works, and this movie must be the worst I have seen in this genre. I mean, in the very first scene, you get to see a CGI baby ass literally shitting in Jason Bateman’s mouth, so, right from the start, the whole thing seemed pretty much hopeless and it never got better. Indeed, the concept was just really moronic and never really entertaining. Furthermore, even though Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman are usually pretty funny, in this movie, neither of them was actually entertaining. To make things worse, I don’t think that either of them played both characters really convincingly.

A bad movie

“I wasn’t really expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, I thought I might as well check it out.

An average movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. If I recall it correctly, I actually saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released.

“By now, I must have seen most of the action flicks starring Sylvester Stallone and, to be honest, I think that most of them are pretty weak and boring but I have to admit that they are a few exceptions and this movie is definitely one of them.

Alice
Notes: Since this movie was another adaptation of 'Alice in Wonderland', I assumed it would be fine to watch it with my kids. Fortunately, I ended up watching it on my own but I guess it would have been a little bit too much for them. Indeed, it is a basically a really weird picture with some very nice animation. Somehow, it reminded me of 'Where the Wild Things Are'. Basically, Spike Jonze spent years developing this children book and even though the end-result was intriguing and appealing, it was also really dark and, therefore, it pretty much lost his purpose since it wasn't any longer a children story. I had pretty much the same feeling here but, on the other hand, aren't we allowed to expand on a traditional children tale like this one to develop and explore our own fears and neuroses? Ok, maybe, I'm going too far in my analysis but there is no doubt that it must be the most nightmarish version of Lewis Carroll's tale.

“Since I have seen all the movies directed by Tim Burton, of course, I had to see his last directing effort as well but I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Well, to be honest, it wasn’t really good, I’m afraid. I mean, sure, the whole thing looked really nice, as usual with this director, but ” read more

An average movie

“Well, to be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. Indeed, on one hand, it was a rather well made and entertaining spy flick, no doubt about it, but, on the other hand, since it was a flick starring two Hollywood giants, shouldn't it have been better than this?!?

Whiplash
Notes: In my opinion, it is basically some kind of dark version of 'Fame' mixed with a nail-biting thriller. Still, even though J.K. Simmons was really amazing, giving the best performance of his career, they went really far with this character. I mean, the guy was just downright awful and, at some point, I started to have a hard time believing that someone would accept to be treated like that. But, basically, that's the whole point of this movie, is it all really worth it? For most of the duration of this movie, the answer would be resounding 'NO' and, then, they brought up this amazing ending with a music piece lasting almost 10 minutes with a solo drum of about 5 minutes. At that moment, you basically don't know anymore as the main character, also very played by Miles Teller, seemed to have reached another level of musical awesomeness, and then again, you start to think, maybe it was worth it after all.

Prison Break (2005-2017)
Seasons : 4 (this show is still running) Notes : Eventually, I have to admit that, even though the whole thing was rather preposterous, it was pretty damned entertaining, especially the first 2 seasons. Above all, I thought that Wentworth Miller was really charismatic and I'm rather surprised his career didn't become huge after the success of this TV-show. At first, I was ONLY interested in the first season. Indeed, how many times are you supposed to break out from jail?!? But then, I have to admit that it was positively surprised by how the 2nd season managed to continue the same plot but it still managed to be something completely different than the 1st season. However, from the 3rd season onwards, it became unfortunately increasingly ridiculous which was too bad.
