An average movie

“Since this movie was well received when it was released, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I was surprised by how much I didn’t care for this movie after all. First of all, I have to admit that I haven’t seen yet ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ but it was hardly a high poi” read more

Riverdale
Seasons : 1 (this show is still running) Notes : While I was still trying to figure a way to finally watch 'The Wire', my wife suggested to watch this show. In fact, it was one of my cousins's daughters who told her she loved the damned thing. I did point out to my wife that she was about 15 years old and that it seemed to be a show for teenagers but we still checked it out anyway. Well, eventually, it was not bad. Sure, there were some rather weak soapy moments but some scenes displayed some potential and, if done properly, it could have turned out to be some kind of teenage version of 'Twin Peaks'. Well, after all, obviously, it never turned out to be so edgy like 'Twin Peaks' was but it was still fairly entertaining which I wouldn't have expected from a teenager show like this one.

The Bridge
Seasons : only 1 episode Notes : I was actually planning to finally watch 'The Wire' and, even though my brother lend me his complete DVD collection of this TV-show, it turned out that the very first DVD with the first 3 episodes was missing... So, we had to settle for something else and, after browsing for 30 mins on Netflix, my wife suggested to check this one out. Well, to be honest, after 'Johan Falk', I wasn't really in the mood to watch yet another Scandinavian police show. Furthemore, I was rather annoyed that it was again dealing with a seriously convoluted plot about some devilish psychopath. Finally, to make things worse, Saga Norén, the main character, was just so unlikable, so annoying and so uncharismatic. Seriously, within 5 mins, I figured out that she had Asperger's syndrome, which was apparently something that was eventually never clearly stated in this TV-show. Anyway, I think it has become such a really lame and overused gimmick to have a supposedly brilliant cop completely oblivious to social norms. So, even though it has a stellar reputation, I really struggled to care for this show and my wife even hated the damned thing so we dropped it right after the 1st episode.

The Godfather
Notes: Even though some people believe this movie doesn't deserve so much praise, you can't possibly deny its huge impact on motion picture history. Basically, it is one of those flicks that you could/should watch every 10 years. Indeed, the first time I watched it, I was about 16 years old and, of course, I had some huge expectations and, to be honest, I thought it was slightly disappointing. Indeed, even though I did like it, it didn't really grab me like, for example, 'Goodfellas' did. The point is that Scorsese's masterpiece is full of energy, wildly entertaining, pretty much in-your-face and really accessible for younger viewers. Coppola's masterpiece, on the other hand, is a total different kind of ball game. Indeed, it is really subtle, quiet, slow paced, really meditative and, quite frankly, it went over my head when I was younger. So, I re-watched it, 10 years later and I was really blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, this time, I was able to appreciate this masterpiece in all its perfection. Whereas 'Goodfellas' was basically shouting at me about its awesomeness, this movie was actually whispering about its greatness and I wasn't able to hear it the first time around. Basically, the story was just spellbinding, the cast was great and Coppola was absolutely at the top of his game.

A classic

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while ago and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. To be honest, since it is one of the longest movies in my collection, I kept delaying this rewatch for quite some time but I'm glad I finally took the time to watch again the dam” read more

The Hitman
Notes: In fact, for a very long time, I had been planning to watch 'It' around this time of the year with Nick, my step-son, but, at the very last moment, he came to the conclusion that he didn't feel like watching something so scary and he was eventually more eager to watch an action movie so I suggested to watch this movie instead after all. Well, to be honest, even though Nick thought it was pretty cool, it took me a very long time to get into the damned thing. Sure, the action scenes were all rather well done but I'm afraid I have seen too many of those to really care anymore. Furthermore, it wasn't really so funny either so I got bored fairly quickly. Fortunately, as soon as Samuel L. Jackson got really involved, it became much more fun and, with Ryan Reynolds, they had a pretty good chemistry. On top of that, it was pretty neat that half of the movie was shot in the Netherlands. Still, the whole thing was nothing really amazing whatsoever.

Last Tango in Paris
Notes: Marlon Brando’s career has always been rather chaotic and this flick must have been his most controversial one. Basically, it is quite a messed up flick, I have to admit that it is an acquired taste and if you are not yourself more or less twisted, there is a fair chance that you won’t like it whatsoever. Personally, I thought it was just fascinating and it is one of the best studies about sex I have ever seen. The point is that Marlon Brando’s character is pretty much a major frustrated manipulative douche-bag and, apparently himself and Bertolucci were quite terrible towards the very young Maria Schneider, so it is something that you have to be able to handle otherwise, the whole thing would be almost unwatchable. For Brando, 1972 would be an amazing year as he would also star in ‘The Godfather’, possibly the best movie ever made. Eventually, I was really impressed by this flick and, even though it is definitely not for everybody, I think it is worth a look, especially if you are interested in Bernardo Bertolucci’s work.

An average movie

“To be honest, I thought I had seen enough Nicholas Sparks’s book adaptations but, since this one was fairly well received, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the beginning was not promising, that’s for sure. Indeed, it was just so annoying, generic and tedious to watch, like most of S” read more

Pusher III
Original Title: 'Pusher III' Country: Denmark Directed by: Nicolas Winding Refn Plot: In this third installment of the 'Pusher' trilogy, we follow Milo, the drug lord from the two first films. He is aging, he is planning his daughter's 25th birthday and his shipment of heroin turns out to be 10.000 pills of ecstasy. When Milo tries to sell the pills anyway, all Hell breaks loose. Note: To be honest, since I was slightly disappointed by ‘Pusher II’, I actually lowered my expectations for this 3rd and last installment. Fortunately, the movie was actually pretty good. First of all, what I liked the most about this trilogy was that it didn’t focus on one character but instead move on from one character to another through the whole trilogy. This 2nd sequel focused thus on Milo who was easily one of the most charismatic guys introduced in these movies.
