Hot Pursuit
Notes: Basically, they went for some kind of lame female remake of 'Midnight Run', a classic from the 80's which I already barely enjoyed. To be honest, I don't think that anything really worked in this movie. First of all, I do believe that Witherspoon is a decent actress but she was actually rather weak here. I mean, the OCD aspect of her character was not so bad but she played one of the least convincing cops I have ever seen or maybe it was just that her character was rather poorly written. Eventually, I think it would have worked better if she would been a really great cop. Anyway, if eventually Sofia Vergara ends up being the one giving the better performance, you should know you are in trouble. I mean, she wasn't great at all but, at least, she was more convincing than Witherspoon. Should I also mentioned that none of the supporting characters was entertaining at all?

A good movie

“Since it was the last movie directed by Alex van Warmerdam that I had to see, I was really eager to watch the damned thing. The first thing I enjoyed was how van Warmerdam had improved as a director. Indeed, this movie was very well directed, especially visually speaking, and it seemed that the guy ” read more

An average movie

“I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Reese Witherspoon, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be seriously weak, that's for sure. Basically, they went for some kind of lame female remake of 'Midnight Run', a classic from the 80's which I a” read more

An average movie

“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. I remember very well when I first heard of this movie. Indeed, I thought it sounded really awesome and I was just so excited to see a flick starring 3 acting giants, Robert” read more

The Last Picture Show
Notes: First of all, it is thanks to this movie that Jeff Bridges' career really took off and it was just really neat to see him when he was much younger (and, apparently, already very talented) . Basically, it is one of those movies where nothing much really happen and nothing much is even told. I know, it doesn’t sound really sound really exciting but, basically, it is way more nuanced than your usual flick and you had to carefully analyse the body language and the looks that the characters give to each other to really understand what's going on (I’m not sure I did but just to follow them was quite spellbinding). For Peter Bogdanovich, this movie was a huge breakthrough and, at the time, he was hailed as the next best thing but, even though he was quite productive in the 70’s, none of his other features managed to reach this level of awesomness.

A good movie

“Since ‘Grimm’ turned out to be rather disappointing, I did lower my expectations for this movie. Fortunately, Alex van Warmerdam made a nice come-back with this movie and, even though it was still far from being his best movie,  I still enjoyed most of it. Basically, it all started as a rather ” read more

Waiter
Original Title: 'Ober' Directed by: Alex van Warmerdam With: Alex van Warmerdam, Thekla Reuten Plot: Edgar is a waiter in a mediocre restaurant, where clients and even his mistress prove abusive, while his sick wife and criminal neighbors are no better. How bad it gets is a matter of discussion.

The Wire
Seasons : only 2 episodes (I will still probably watch the whole thing on my own) Notes : Finally! I took a while but I have received the missing DVD of the 1st season for this TV-show. Now, the next step was to convince my wife is that it was actually worth a look... As far as I was concerned, I thought it was quite interesting and entertaining but it was pretty obvious that it might take a few episodes before she was actually sold. Unfortunately, after only 2 episodes, she said she really didn't care for the damned thing at all so, I guess, I will have to watch this one on my own after all...

mother!
chosen by Johan Notes: To be honest, following the extremely polarizing responses towards this movie, I became slightly worried but since I'm always looking for something really challenging, this movie turned out to be the right choice. First of all, I have to admit it, it was a difficult movie to read as the whole thing was just so bizarre and chaotic and I can imagine that not everyone might be able to connect with this picture. But that was also the real beauty of it, the fact that you could give it pretty much any meaning you want. Indeed, someone might think that it is a story about motherhood, some others might say it is about how chaotic our society and way of life has become. As far as I was concerned, it felt like a fascinating and endless nightmare, the way everything seemed familiar and yet odd at the same time and the way the main character seemed to a be mere spectator with no control over the events happening in front of her. Their world kept shifting, unfolding and exploding with some continuous random small or big events which felt really reminiscent to a nightmare, at least, to me, and this process was quite spellbinding to behold.

Peaky Blinders
Seasons : currently watching Notes : There was still no sign from the DVD for the first season of 'The Wire' that I had ordered on Ebay and I was slowly getting the feeling that I got screwed. In the mean time, I suggested to watch this show but, even though I thought it looked pretty cool (especially visually speaking, I think it is pretty damned amazing), my wife was not really convinced so I thought it might take a few episodes before she warms up to it. Eventually, we decided to skip it for a while but after we finally managed to start with 'The Wire', after all, we eventually still dropped it very quickly (see comment above), and we started again to watch this show again. Eventually, we will probably watch all the available episodes.

An average movie

The reason why she wanted to watch the damned thing was because Lady Gaga had cancelled her last concert tour becaus” read more

IT
Directed by: Andy Muschietti ('Mama') With: Bill Skarsgård Was the original - It (1990) - worth a look? Even though the directing and acting were nothing really amazing, it was still a fascinating story. Indeed, usually, I have a hard time to care about Stephen King's fantastic and horror stories, but this was absolutely a great story, easily one of King's best, and I might even consider reading the book at some point. And, of course, Tim Curry was just downright impressive and he delivered here one of the most unforgettable bad guys ever. Will I ever watch this remake? In fact, I had planned for quite some time to watch this remake in the movie theater but, at the very last moment, Nick, my step-son, chickened out and we went to see something else after all. Eventually, it turned out to be a huge box-office success and I will definitely check it out at some point, especially since I really enjoyed the first version.
