A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, while watching this flick, I kept thinking 'how the hell did they got away with this?'. I mean, it's not that I was shocked or that I thought that it was disrespectful but it had more to do with ” read more

An average movie

“I really had no idea what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, it was pretty neat to see Paul Bettany playing the lead for once. Concerning the movie itself, it seemed to be another crime thriller about a top dete” read more

A Quiet Place
Notes: Well, to be honest, I actually ended up with pretty much the same feeling I had with ‘Get Out’ which was another massively heralded horror flick released last year. Indeed, with both movies, the directing and acting were both really solid, it was really entertaining but, somehow, it still didn’t really blow me though. I mean, sure, the concept was pretty neat and it was really nice to see a really good movie dealing with mutes after the terribly underwhelming ‘Mute’ from Duncan Jones but, at the end of the day, it was still a gimmick after all. Indeed, even though the characters did their best to be as silent as possible and even though they went through some massive precautions to remain safe, you know that, at some point, one of them will made some noise because, otherwise, there wouldn’t be a story to tell and it made the whole thing rather predictable. Still, I have to admit that it was a bold move to make a horror movie with barely any (spoken) dialog and, just after I was done watching this flick, I was suddenly so aware of the sounds around me and the sounds I was making myself which was just really neat.

Throne of Blood
Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick, I don't remember it in details and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. In fact, when I was much younger, there was a time when I saw a whole bunch of vintage movies directed by Akira Kurosawa and this movie was one of them. Well, this movie was quite unique as it was combining a typical Kurosawa Samurai tale with a classic from Shakespeare and, if I’m not mistaken, I think it was in fact the very first version of MacBeth that I have seen. By now, I must have seen about 5 versions of this tale and it would be pretty neat to see Kurosawa’s take after all these years but it is considered by many as one of the best adaptations. Anyway, back in those days, Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune were and actually still are one of the best director-actor combo and, once again, they definitely delivered something quite terrific here.

Pacific Rim: Uprising
Notes: Even though 'Pacific Rim' had a great concept and one of the most interesting directors at work nowadays, it turned out to be rather underwhelming and I was actually rather surprised that they still went for a sequel. As I expected, this sequel went by very quickly without making much waves at the box-office so I think we are pretty much done with this franchise. This time, Del Toro didn't even direct the damned thing so it was even less inspired and the story was just so convoluted. I mean, there were only a few Kaijus and they showed up only the 3rd act which was also rather disappointing. The only positive thing was that John Boyega was just really charismatic and managed single-handedly to make the whole thing at least watchable but it wasn't enough, I'm afraid.

Paths of Glory (1957)
Notes: Basically, the whole thing is just so shocking, heartbreaking and downright revolting. In my opinion, it is easily the best movie starring Kirk Douglas and one of the best directed by Stanley Kubrick. It is basically one of the greatest anti-war movies, it is as simple as that and even though it was only Kubrick's 3rd directing feature, he was apparently already one of the great masters. For example, the battle scene was just really impressive. It might not have been as bloody as 'Saving Private Ryan' but for a 55 years old flick, it was technically and visually quite brilliant. I above all loved the juxtaposition between the fancy headquarters, the nice little diners, the little chats, the nice dance parties the general have together and the dirt, the constant humidity, the hunger, the fear and the horror of the trenches. Also the way the generals talk about the soldiers was so despicable but, unfortunately, probably accurate. In the history books, this war was called 'The Great War' but there was nothing much great about it, except maybe the huge number of casualties.

Need for Speed
Notes: Well, at least, it wasn't a shameless copycat of 'The Fast and The Furious' but that's probably the only positive thing about this movie. Seriously, to make a movie about a video game is usually a bad idea but to make a movie about a race video game was even worse. I mean, I did play one of the 'Need for Speed' games many years ago and I have to admit that it was pretty neat but there was no story involved whatsoever so they had to come up with something but the end-result was long, rather boring and most of the time really preposterous. The most bewildering thing was the impressive cast they managed to get for this movie (Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Rami Malek, Dakota Johnson, Michael Keaton) and you wonder why they all got involved in such weak and pretty much doomed to fail project.
