An average movie

“Since I have a weak spot for Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard and since this movie was directed by Robert Zemeckis, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, even though it was a decent watch, I actually had a hard time to really care about the damned thing. I mean, I did like the 1st act” read more

Straw Dogs
Notes: It has been a while since I have seen this movie and I will definitely check it out again when I have the opportunity. To be honest, I was actually slightly disappointed by ‘Wild Bunch’. I mean, sure, I thought it was pretty good but I failed to see what was so impressive and, in fact, I was more able to connect with this other classic directed by Sam Peckinpah. In my opinion, it is actually one of his more subtle directing efforts. Of course, in fact, as usual with this rather brutal director, it wasn’t actually not subtle at all, quite violent, especially back in those days and borderline misogynist but, for a Peckinpah feature, it had actually quite some depth. I also enjoyed to see Dustin Hoffman who has at the top of his game at the time. Indeed, Hoffman was an unexpected but great choice to play the lead and I thought it was more intriguing to have him go beserk instead of one of the usual tough guys that you might have in such violent setting.

A bad movie

“I wasn’t expecting much from the damned thing but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought it might as well check it out.

The Prince
Notes: Well, from all the lame direct-to-DVD features starring Bruce Willis I have seen recently, this must have been the worst one so far. As usual, Willis was displayed prominently on the promotional material and, as usual, he wasn’t even playing the lead character but that wasn’t even the biggest problem with this movie. Indeed, the biggest issue was that the story was just so generic and tedious. Basically, it was some kind of rip-off of such movies like ‘The Equalizer’ or ‘John Wick’ about an average guy who seems to have a dark past and happens to be an actual killing machine. Well, I have never been a huge fan of the genre and to see such a weak movie in this genre was just terribly tedious. To be honest, I’m trying to think if there was anything that really worked in this movie but, no, I can’t think of any redeeming feature.

An average movie

“After ‘Klein Teun’, Alex van Warmerdam took his time and, 5 years later, he finally came up with a new directing effort but, unfortunately, it turned out to be his weakest movie so far, I’m afraid. At least, the DVD I watched was of much better quality than the DVDs I saw for his previous movi” read more

Okja
Notes: Well, as usual with this director, it ended up being mix of many different things such as a family feature, some science-fiction, some social commentary, some comedy,... and, honestly, even though this mix was interesting, I can't say I was really blown away. I mean, it was well made, some scenes were even rather impressive visually speaking but I think it was just too unfocused for my taste. For example, there were many interesting characters played by a really solid cast but, in fact, none of them was really properly developed, except maybe Mija, the main character. That was also the tricky thing by mixing such elements. On one hand, I did like how they displayed that most big corporations will claim that their products are healthy, organic, and other great things when it is in fact some complete PR bullshit. Later on, I also enjoyed this moment when the other Mirando sister points out that people actually don't actually really care what you sell them, as long as it is really cheap, which is also really true. So, those were interesting points but, then, every 5 minutes, you would have Mija claiming that she doesn't care at all about all this, that the only thing just wants is her pet back. I mean, if the main character doesn't care about all this, what should we? So, the movie kept going back and forth between all these interesting ideas but the end-result was never really convincing. Anyway, even though it didn't completely work for me, it was still a decent watch.
