johanlefourbe posted a review of Made in U.S.A.

A good movie

“It’s only after watching about 10 movies directed by Jean-Luc Godard that I came to the conclusion that I’m actually not a huge fan of his work. Indeed, nmany years ago, I saw and really loved ‘A bout de souffle’ which is still one of my all-time favorie movies but everything else I have see” read more

Outlander
Seasons : currently watching... Notes : This time around, I chose what we should we watch. Since this show seemed somewhat similar to 'Game of Thrones', I was pretty sure my wife would be interested. In contrary to GoT, there is only one character and only one storyline and, to be honest, I'm not sure if it will be enough on the long run. Surprisingly, even though the scale is rather limited, the whole thing still goes rather slow and nothing happens much of the time. Still, I really like the mood and Caitriona Balfe is seriously charismatic and even quite gorgeous to look at.

The Mummy
Notes: Since this movie was so poorly received, I didn't expect much from the damned thing but Nick, my step-son, was really eager to check it out. Well, in fact, probably because I had such low expectations but, to be honest, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, this mummy concept remains rather limited and I thought the makers did a decent job. Sure, it was still nothing really amazing but the action scenes were quite spectacular. Still, even though the action scenes were entertaining enough, they were maybe too many of them, and, as a result, you get to see the mummy in the streets of London causing some major damages only for a few minutes which was rather disappointing. It was also obviously a gimmick to have the mummy played by a woman this time around but Sofia Boutella was seriously charismatic, in spite of the obvious limitations of her character. Eventually, you might wonder if they will move on with their 'Dark universe' considering the lackluster enthusiasm towards this movie and the scenes connecting this movie with the other characters which would be involved in this universe felt really forced and rather awkward.

Carrie
Notes: Even though this movie has a really solid reputation, I have to admit that I always had some mixed feelings about this movie. I had actually read the book written by Stephen King a few years before watching the damned thing and, to be honest, it didn’t impress me at all. Indeed, I thought it was just another typical horror story that the guy has delivered throughout his career but not much more than that. Well, this movie gave me pretty much the same feeling. I mean, I have to admit it, Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie were both pretty good, even if Spacek was 10 years older than her character, but I still had a hard time to care about this story. Eventually, almost 40 years later, they came up with a remake with Chloë Grace Moretz playing the title character but, even if it seemed to be promising, it turned out to be a commercial and critical flop.

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick and since there was a really neat cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it seems that this movie belongs to this sub-genre of the failed military mission based on some true events (the most famous one  in this genre mus” read more

“To be honest, I didn't expect much from this movie but since it was the last movie directed by the Farrelly brothers that I hadn't seen yet, I still wanted to check it out. Well, unfortunately, as usual with these guys, I didn't care much for the damned thing, I'm afraid. First of all, I have to adm” read more

“In fact, I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. First of all, I have to admit that I always had a weak spot for the first installment but, unfortunately, this sequel turned out to be slightly disappointing. I me” read more

Taxi Driver
Notes: Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it whenever I get the opportunity. Anyway, in my opinion, it was definitely the first masterpiece produced by Martin Scorsese and Robert de Niro. I mean, 3 years before, they had already made 'Mean Streets' together and it was already a real breakthrough for both of them but it is with this movie that they really started to change cinema as an Art and they will keep doing it, at least twice again with 'Raging Bull' and 'Goodfellas'. Even if nowadays De Niro has lost his edge, he will still be remembered forever for this unforgettable piece of art. Indeed, he gave one of the best performances of his prestigious career and, plain and simply, one of the best performances ever given in a motion picture. For Scorsese, its status changed forever from promising young director to bonafide master. I mean, the whole thing was made with so much skills, every detail was closed to perfection and the story was just completely fascinating, a profound and dark study of the human soul.

An average movie

“To be honest, I never understood the appeal of this franchise and I was really surprised that this 3rd installment was still quite successful at the box-office, especially since it was released 5 long years after its predecessors. In my case, I ended up watching the damned thing because they were of” read more

La La Land
Notes: Well, unfortunately, pretty much as I expected, even though I did like it, I can't say it really blew me away. Basically, it mostly had to do with the fact that I never been a fan of musicals and even though this movie was probably one of the most interesting musicals I have seen, it still didn't manage to make me fall in love with this genre. On the other hand, my wife, who is a die-hard fan of classic musicals, liked it even less. Anyway, from a technical point of view, it was a very well made and beautiful movie and Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone both once again delivered some strong performances. However, like in most musicals, the story was just too generic, especially for a running time above the 2 hours, and even though Gosling and Stone were fine, I can't say I really cared for their characters. Maybe I should give it a 2nd chance at some point but, for now, I think it is rather overrated.
