An average movie

“I already saw this movie but since it was more than 20 years ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was pretty neat when I was a kid, in fact, it is not really a good movie, I’m afraid. I mean, there were some nice bits, here and there, Jack Nich” read more

Turkish Delight
Notes: This movie is the masterpiece that influenced every single Dutch movies that came afterwards. I mean, in spite of its highly sexual content, it was in 1973 the most successful Dutch film ever made and it's still the most attended Dutch film in the Netherlands, more than 40 years later. So, it is huge, the best movie ever made by Paul Verhoeven and I really loved it. Indeed, in my opinion, it is one of the best love stories I have ever seen as there was a one of a kind chemistry between Rutger Hauer and Monique van de Ven. Even though I usually don't care much about randomness, it was amazing how some small little events would happen on almost every single scene. It kept the whole thing so pure, fresh and much more spellbinding than any romantic feature you will see coming from Hollywood. The lovers basically do everything together, they make love like beasts, they fight, they laugh, they throw stuff at each other, they even have a car crash together on their first meeting, even when they are separated, they are still crazy about each other and, for the viewers, they are completely spellbinding to watch. Some people in the Netherlands argue that this movie is now old and has lost its edge but I completely disagree. 40 years later, it is still an impressive movie and Dutch cinema is still waiting for something that good to come along.

An average movie

“Since I have a weak spot for Noah Baumbach’s work, I was quite eager to check this movie. Well, the tricky thing with this director is that he very often focuses on some usually rather unlikeable characters and, to be honest, as a result, it is rather difficult to really care for them or what they” read more

A good movie

“I think I wanted to watch this movie for more than 15 years. In the mean time, I saw all the other movies directed by Jacques Audiard who has become easily one of the best French directors nowadays so I became even more eager to watch his directing debut. Well, eventually, even though it turned out ” read more

An average movie

“When my daughter told me that she wanted to watch this movie, I have to admit that I didn't know at all what she was talking about which is usually not really a good omen. So, I looked it up and, honestly, I thought I looked really lame but we still ended up watching it in the movie theater together” read more

The Last Face
Notes: When this movie was released, it turned out to be a huge critical flop but I still wanted to check it out anyway. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that the damned thing really deserved its poor reputation. Seriously, pretty much nothing worked in this movie. Indeed, first of all, they made the usual mistake of dealing with Africa and yet still only focusing on 2 Western characters. I mean, except for one doctor with a very small part, the Africans were only limited to either helpless victims or monstrous psychopaths with barely any dialogue whatsoever. Then, the directing was also surprisingly weak and also terribly pretentious. I mean, they criticized the whole Western world for not caring but they still managed to waste more than half the running time with a completely generic love story involving two white doctors. At least, Javier Bardem was a very good choice as he was charismatic without being too handsome and he did what he could with this material. I wish I could say the same for Charlize Theron who was as usual insanely gorgeous but her good looks actually worked against her and, to make things worse, she gave here one of her weakest performances ever.

An average movie

“When I heard that Sean Penn was finally coming back with a new directing effort, almost 10 long years after the amazing 'Into the Wild', obviously, I became quite excited. However, when it was released, it turned out to be a huge critical flop but I still wanted to check it out anyway. Unfortunately” read more

A good movie

“Before watching this movie, I was hoping that it would be at least just as visually impressive as 'The Fifth Element' turned out to be 20 years ago. Well, eventually, I wasn't disappointed as this movie was easily the most amazing movie visually speaking that I have seen since 'Avatar'. Indeed, Luc ” read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch but not much more than that, to be honest. Indeed, after such movies like ‘Blade Runner’, ‘Her’ or ‘Ex Machina’, it is rather tricky to come up ” read more

Roma
Release date (U.S.) : ??? directed by : Alfonso Cuarón plot : A story that chronicles a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s. Why do I want to see this ? Cuaron's last 2 movies ('Gravity' and 'Children of Men') turned out to be some huge critical hits and I can't wait to see what he will do next. It is also pretty neat that, this time around, he is coming up with something completely different. My only wish would with this director would be that he was a little bit more productive as it would be only his 3rd movie in 13 long years.
