johanlefourbe posted a review of Tarnation

A good movie

“The first time I heard about this movie was maybe 10 years ago. Back then, during a talk-show, a Dutch actress displayed a short sample and it seemed so disturbing that I became instantly seriously intrigued by the damned thing. Eventually, I'm surprised that it took me so long to see this flick but” read more

A very good movie

“Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Sure, it was maybe not really groundbreaking but it was still one of the best movies I have seen in this genre for quite some time. I was wondering how Jac” read more

Rocco and His Brothers
Notes: To be honest, it has been while since I have seen this flick but like everything directed by Luchino Visconti, it was quite fascinating to behold. I have to admit that, when I was a teenager, I thought that Alain Delon was a rather lame actor (at the time, he certainly didn’t have a stellar reputation in France or else where so give me a break…) and I had no idea that, in the 60's-70's, the guy was actually one of the best actors around. It’s just too bad his career went downhill in the 80's and it has been probably a couple of decades since he has done anything really worthwile. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, many might argue that it was the best movie directed by Visconti and it is probably my favorite one so far but I still have to watch more than half of his work. Anyway, this was quite an amazing movie.

A classic

“It had been ages since I saw a movie directed by Akira Kurosawa so I was really eager to check this flick, especially since it is considered as one of his best movies. Well, even though I did like it, in my opinion, it turned out to be one of his most difficult movies to grasp. It is not that it was” read more

A classic

“I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out.

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

Breathless
Notes: The first time I watched it, I must have been 15 or 16 years old, I thought it was just awesome and it became right away one of my favorite movies of all time. Basically, it is just a boy, a girl, a car and a gun, that's it, but because it is so simple, it became a really pure movie experience. However, even though those elements were quite simple, Godard did something quite revolutionary at the time which was stripping down many of the conventional narrative stereotypes (a core aspect of the French New Wave) making the whole thing even more spellbinding. Eventually, I re-watched it years later and I did lower my rating a little bit since there were a few dull moments but I absolutely remains one of my favorite French movies. Unfortunately, later on in his career, Godard will start to make really obscure movies and, in the process, more or less deliberately started to alineate his audience but this was his first directing feature and it became instantly a timeless masterpiece. Anyway, it is a great classic and I loved the damned thing.

Jem and the Holograms                                  (2015)
Notes: Well, it turned out completely misguided. First of all, who was actually the targeted audience for this movie? I actually watched the cartoon when I was a kid back in the 90's but it was hardly one of the most popular cartoons back then. Furthermore, they obviously aimed the whole thing towards the young girls but they obviously had never heard of this old TV show. To make it more modern, they added a social media angle which was just so annoying as you would get some YouTube videos popping randomly with absolutely no link with what was going on. Furthermore, the way the characters used social media themselves made the whole thing looked like a very fake reality-TV show. Finally, what was the point with this robot? Seriously, I thought it would add something to their performance but it didn't have any impact after all. At least, some of the songs were not bad but it was obviously not enough to make this movie mildly entertaining.

A bad movie

“Obviously, I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be indeed pretty lame and completely misguided. First of all, who was actually the target audience for this movie? I mean, I actually watched the c” read more

Anon
Notes: Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it was only a slight improvement on 'Good Kill', 'The Host' and 'In Time'. Basically, while the concept was fairly interesting and extremely relevant today, it was nothing really groundbreaking and it seemed that it missed something to become really fascinating. Above all, a bigger issue was the fact that the whole thing was in fact rather boring. I mean, Amanda Seyfried, who was quite charming as usual, had a nice mysterious character but the main character played by Clive Owen was just not complex enough and a total bore to watch. Seriously, they had to go for the old gimmick of the divorced detective grieving for his dead child?!? That was just some really lazy writing, just like the fact that, in this mix of science-fiction with a film noire, this detective had to have sex with this femme fatale at some point. At least, the 3rd act wasn't completely lame but it still turned out to be pretty weak after all.
