The Upside of Anger

johanlefourbe posted a review of Men in Black

A good movie

“Of course, I already watched this movie. In fact, I even saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, even though it is now already 20 years old, it still remains a fun movi” read more

Rocky
Notes: When you think about it, in contrary to what Sylvester Stallone did for the rest of his career, this movie was in fact not really an action flick. Indeed, except for the last 10 minutes for the final showdown, the rest of the movie is actually a rather grim drama. It was also rather funny to see Stallone having so many dialogues especially compared to what he did in the last 30 years during which has been usually blowing up some stuff or demolishing someone's face. Personally, I always had some mixed feelings about the whole thing. I mean, on one hand, it is indeed a pretty good flick, uncannily paralleling Stallone's whole life and it was the ultimate underdog story which has been copied 100's times afterwards. On the other hand, there are so many better movies out there in my opinion. I mean, for example, the same year 'Taxi Driver' was released and was snubbed by the Academy awards in favor of this movie which still remain painful even 40 years later. Still, even though I don't think it is really amazing, it remains a classic though.

In the Realm of the Senses
Notes: Since I have always been interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house picture with some non-simulated sex-scenes and, apparently, the very first non-pornographic film to feature scenes of fellatio and even an erect penis. Knowing this fact, most people would drop the whole thing and I don’t think it is something you should watch with your new girlfriend but I think that the concept was actually interesting. Indeed, why should a sex movie be ugly as hell, with some terrible actors and an inane plot? On the other hand, you could argue that there is no real point of having some real sex in a movie and simulated sex works just as fine. Anyway, what about the movie itself? It was definitely a bold affair. I mean, it was not only about sex, it was also about love, domination, submission, madness and many other things. Like I said, I thought it was pretty good, I especially enjoyed the directing but, to be honest, the whole thing was not really pleasant to watch and, at the end of the day, it was an intriguing experiment but not much more than that.

An average movie

“To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this movie but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I didn't care much for the damned thing, I'm afraid.

An average movie

“I wasn't expecting much from this movie but since it was the first (and so far only) French movie starring Eva Green, I was still eager to check it out. Well, unfortunately, it turned out to be a huge borefest. I'm not sure if Arséne Lupin is well known abroad but he is definitely very famous in Fr” read more

Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this movie and I should definitely rewatch it at some point. Basically, it is yet another major classic directed by Steven Spielberg but even though I thought it was pretty good, I have to admit that it didn't really blow me away. I mean, it is an awesome title, I'll give you that, but even though it was definitely more interesting than 'E.T.', it was still too over-sentimal and cheesy for my taste, I'm afraid. You do have to give some credits to Spielberg for trying to give another approach to the usual one involving the Aliens as the average bloodthirsty monsters that always want to wipe us out but, in the process, I believe that he went too far by making them too wise and kind. Anyway, this movie is still regarded as one of the greatest classics in Science-Fiction and it is definitely worth a look.

A good movie

“Like anyone else, I had some mixed feelings when I heard that they would make a sequel for this classic. Eventually, after watching the damned thing, did we really need this sequel? Probably not but was it a bad movie? Certainly not either. Indeed, what made this movie still work was the fact that D” read more

T2 Trainspotting
Notes: Eventually, did we really need this sequel? Probably not but was it a bad movie? Certainly not either. Indeed, what made this movie still work was the fact that Danny Boyle was involved and the original cast as well. It was especially really neat to see Ewan McGregor finally working again with this director after 20 long years but the rest of the cast was fine as well. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't give all these characters some average middle-class lifes with wife, kids and a decent job. Indeed, Spud was still a heroin addict, Simon (AKA Sick boy) kicked off the habit but was still a cocain addict, Begbie spent all these years in prison and Renton who first seemed to have turned around his life eventually didn't have much to brag about either. So, the set-up was pretty good but I'm afraid the makers still struggled to give these characters something interesting to do. Indeed, the whole thing was pretty random and they were several attempts to get them involved in some various sub-plots but these attempts were all rather all-baked. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch.
