An average movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since it was Robert Zemeckis's directing debut, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, the damned thing definitely had some potential. Indeed, even though I have never been a huge fan of the Beatles, it was a great idea to focus on their 1st ” read more

Shoot the Piano Player
Notes: Since I was a huge fan of ‘Les quatre cents coups’, I was really eager to check François Truffaut’s following directing effort. To be honest, it is not one of his most prestigious work and it definitely belongs to his more obscure work but I still think it was quite enjoyable. Basically, the tone was more frivolous and the whole thing was actually rather unfocused. Indeed, even though it is supposed to be a thriller/film noir, it is obvious that Truffaut didn’t really care much about the plot and he wanted to rather focus on the colorful characters and there was also some fixation towards women, a trademark in François Truffaut’s work. It was also rather fun to see Charles Aznavour, a very famous singer in France, playing the main character. Anyway, eventually, even though it was rather well received by the critics, it was actually a box-office flop and, following this failure, Truffaut decided to drop the New Wave directing style based mostly on improvisation to some more traditionally structured dramas.

A good movie

“Since it was the last movie starring James Dean that I hadn't seen so far, I was really eager to see this flick. Well, even though it turned out to be pretty good, I can't say it really blew me away though. I mean, there was some very good stuff and it could have been a great movie but it didn't com” read more

A good movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the damned thing and it is probably one of the best movies I have seen dealing with (American) football, especially in c” read more

Baby Driver
Notes: Well, even though this movie has been hailed as many as being the best movie released in 2017, to be honest, I thought it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more that. Sure, it was very well directed and visually really neat with a killer soundtrack and the damned thing was just really fun, no doubt about it, but the story was nothing really amazing after all. What bothered me the most was the fact that Baby was actually a nice kid who was involved in these robberies against his will. In my opinion, it would have been much more interesting and entertaining if the guy would have had a darker edge and would have actually loved what he was doing. Indeed, during the very first scene, you can see that Baby was having so much fun and, as a result, it was the best scene of the movie. When you discover that he was actually coerced to get involved in these robberies, you get such an annoying tension between the fact that the main character doesn’t want to be there at all and the fact that the viewers don’t want to see anything else than him getting involved in some chaotic heist. Furthermore, even though the characters were decent enough, I didn’t think that anybody was really fascinating. Anyway, it was still an entertaing flick and it has been a while since I have seen such amazing car chases.

An average movie

“To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since it was the last movie directed by Mel Brooks, I still wanted to check it out. Well, as I expected, it turned out to be pretty lame and it is rather sad that Mel Brooks would end a rather prestigious directing career with such a weak f” read more

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since it was added on the’ 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list’, I was quite eager to check it out. First of all, I always had a weak spot for movies about mental institutions and this movie is probably the oldest one I have seen” read more

Viridiana                                  (1961)
Notes: To be honest, even after re-watching this movie, I thought it was still tricky for me to judge the damned thing. I mean, it was so subtle and I was never really sure what Luis Buñuel was actually trying to achieve here. The interesting thing is that, the first time around, I thought it was great and inspiring and I really loved the damned thing. After all these years, it is rather difficult to imagine how shocking this movie must have been when it came out at the beginning of the 60's (in fact, even though it was made and produced in Spain, it was banned in this country for many years). Maybe, what Buñuel meant with this movie, was that the traditional religious dogma might be actually a waste of time as it goes against many of our basic urges. Eventually, we are all sinners some way or another so there is really no need to feel so guilty about it, as displayed in the last scene, and our sins are basically what makes us human.
