johanlefourbe posted a review of Taken 3

An average movie

“To be honest,  I wasn't expecting much from this movie. I mean, sure, I have to admit that 'Taken' was a solid action flick but I don't think it was anything really mind-blowing and it definitely didn't provide enough material to launch a franchise. Anyway, since the two previous installments turne” read more

In the Crosswind
chosen by Ietje Notes: In France and Netherlands, there has always been some kind of obsession about what the Nazis did during WWII, which is understandable but, as a result, many atrocities that happened elsewhere in the world never seemed to get the attention they deserved. In this case, they focused instead on what the Soviets did in Estonia and some other Eastern European countries and since I didn't know much about these events, it was already a really interesting watch. However, instead of going for something straightforward, Martti Helde, in his directing debut, decided to go for something much more original, shooting in black-and-white, with no dialogues and only a voiceover provided by the main character. In fact, he went even further as most of the movie was composed of very long shots with everybody standing still. Well, it was all very beautiful to look at, that's for sure, but did it really enhance this story? To be honest, I'm not so sure. I mean, at first, you keep wondering how they pulled it off and even though it must have be peen painstakingly difficult to coordinate, it felt as if the tale was not strong enough and the makers tried to cover it up somehow showing off their skills in the process. The fact that I dozed off a couple of times wasn't a good sign either (it may have had to do with the fact that it was so warm in the movie theater though). Anyway, even though it didn't completely blow me away, it was still an intriguing watch. (May 2017)

A good movie

“To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority but since it was on Netflix and since it was suggested by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be a nice watch and I was above all surprised by how much it resembled 'Get Out', so far” read more

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Notes: After 6 years, you might hope they would have managed to bring something new and exciting but, unfortunately, they didn't make much of an effort and they pretty much recycled the same formula. One thing that bothered me was the fact that, pretty much like in the previous movie, there was just too many people involved in this quest. For example, why on Earth was Barbossa involved again in this adventure? Sure, he is a pretty cool character and Geoffrey Rush is a fine actor but they could have done fine without him. Indeed, Salazar was a very strong villain but he didn't get much screen time since there was just so many people involved. Another annoying thing was the way they forced a family connection between most of the characters. Sure, we live in a small world but it feels as if the makers were scared somehow to add someone completely new to the mix.

Notes: Nowadays, I have some kind of love-hate relationship with Woody Allen but, when I started to discover his movies, I was a huge fan of his work. Looking back at this movie, I’m not surprised that I used to love his movies. Indeed, at the beginning of this career, the guy was so much sharper, especially in this movie which is usually considered as his Magnum Opus and rightly so . First of all, Allen has always been famous for his writing skills (as a result, he has been nominated 16 times for the Academy Awards for the Best Writing and won this prize 3 times) and the dialogues and characters in this movie were just so interesting and entertaining. Above all, the whole thing was just downright hilarious and much more funny than most of the comedies I have seen which were made afterwards. Even though I tend to think that the most recent critical successes directed by Woody Allen (‘Midnight in Paris’ for example) were rather overrated, this movie definitely deserves its reputation and it is indeed a great classic.

An average movie

“To be honest, I thought it was rather difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, on one hand, half of it was fairly interesting but,  on the other hand, the other half was pretty much some exploitative garbage. And, yet, maybe that was the whole point of Harmony Korine,  to make a movie which was real” read more

“Since I’m a big fan of Francis Ford Coppola’s work, I was really eager to check this movie and it took me many year to finally watch the damned thing. Well, I wish I could say it was worth the wait but, unfortunately, it turned out to be rather underwhelming. I don’t know, it seems that after ” read more
