Posted : 21 hours, 12 minutes ago on 3 December 2020 10:00 (A review of Hillbilly Elegy)

Even though this movie was really poorly received, since it was directed by Ron Howard and since it was available on Netflix, I was still eager to check it out. Well, maybe because I had some rather low expectations but, to be honest, I didn’t think it was so bad at after all. At least, the material definitely had some potential but I have to admit that this movie still never really worked though. The first issue was that Ron Howard was obviously not the right guy to handle such a dark material. I mean, this story was clearly about a highly dysfunctional family but, instead of diving into the complex mechanisms involved in this group of people, Howard always remained skin-deep and instead constantly hammered the fact that the narrator actually really loved his family. In the same way, the general tone, especially the soundtrack, was just too light for this material. The directing was not the only problem though. Indeed, this movie was another example that the back-and-forth in time remains such a useless and annoying gimmick. Finally, I haven’t read the book it was adapted from but the fact that it was a best-seller doesn’t necessarily mean that it was actually really great. I mean, you could assume that the main drive of this story was the deconstruction of the American Dream  showing in the process that some big chunks of the American population will never come close to this ideal. Yet, the fact that this tale was actually told by a guy who came from nothing and managed to study at Yale and eventually became a venture capitalist  and a successful author, basically reaching the American Dream, in my opinion, clearly undermined the whole message. Finally, the movie spent too time much on the narrator who remains seriously clueless about what was going around him, even as a grown-up, when they should have focused more on Mamaw and Bev. At least, even though their performances reeked of Oscar-bait, I still think that Amy Adams and Glenn Close were both really good in this flick. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I think it was a decent watch though but there is no doubt that it was another rather misguided directing effort from Ron Howard.

Posted : 1 day, 20 hours ago on 2 December 2020 10:28 (A review of HHhH)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, ‘HHhH’ was such a weird title. Apparently, it stands for ‘Himmlers Hirn heißt Heydrich’ meaning ‘Himmler's brain is called Heydrich’ but I’m not surprised they switched to the much accessible ‘The Man with the Iron Heart’ at some point. Anyway, beside its title, the material was actually pretty strong but, to be honest, I wasn’t so sure by the approach they took. Basically, the movie was divided into 2 parts, the first one dealing with the rise of Reinhard Heydrich within the 3rd Reich and the second one dealing with the suicide mission to get rid of him but this mix didn’t really work and the end-result was 2 rather half-baked stories. The first part focusing on Reinhard Heydrich had the most potential, even if the first couple of scenes were rather clunky. Indeed, I have to admit that I had never heard of the guy before but it was a rather fascinating character. Unfortunately, in spite a really solid performance by Jason Clarke, eventually, we didn’t really get any insights about this psycho. Indeed, what was his drive? Why was he so fanatic about his horrifying and completely messed-up job? I mean, the only thing you get is that, when his wife first met him, someone told her he was ‘weird’. The second part was even more problematic though. Indeed, out of nowhere, they dropped Heydrich and focused on the 2 guys who killed him but this switch was just jarring. To make things worse, these 2 heros, Jan Kubis and Jozef Gabcík, were even less developed than Heydrich. Seriously, you learn basically nothing about them except that the first thing they did when they got back to Czechoslovakia was to both hook up with some random girls. I won’t blame Jack O'Connell and Jack Reynor, they did what they could with this material but their characters were just terribly uncharismatic. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it remains a really interesting story and I think it is worth a look but there is no doubt that it could have been so much better.

Posted : 2 days, 20 hours ago on 1 December 2020 11:06 (A review of The Infiltrator)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but the story did sound intriguing and since I have a weak spot for Bryan Cranston, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it was definitely a strong story and the movie itself was decent enough but, to be honest, not much more than that. The first issue was probably that, these last few years, I have seen so many movies and TV-shows dealing with the Medellín cartel. Above all, after watching ‘Narcos’, it might seem to be an impossible task for a movie to be as thorough and comprehensive as the Netflix’s masterful TV-show, especially with only 2 hours of running time. In this case, Brad Furman chose a realistic approach and managed to display all the major milestones happening during this cover-up operation but, sometimes, I got slightly lost in the technicality of this operation. Above all, I think they failed to show 2 important aspects in this story. First of all, there was the fact that Robert Mazur managed to infiltrate the highest levels of the Medellín cartel with the very few resources provided by the law enforcement (for example, Mazur apparently paid for the expensive suits out of his own pocket). Another point that was barely scratched by this movie was the fact that, for 2 long years, Mazur had to live 2 different complete lives and that he constantly had to switch between being Robert Mazur, a mild-mannered family man with 2 kids, and being Bob Musella, a rather flamboyant money launderer working for the Columbian drug mob. I guess that’s the tricky thing with a feature length movie, the fact there is basically no time to further develop such interesting elements. The fact that everything happening was actually rather predictable didn't help either. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a very interesting tale with a solid performance by Bryan Cranston and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

Posted : 3 days, 21 hours ago on 30 November 2020 09:38 (A review of Winter's Tale)

Since this movie had been really poorly received when it was released, I didn’t expect much but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out anyway. Well, at least, you have to give Akiva Goldsman some credit to tackle something so ambitious (Apparently, Martin Scorsese backed out because he thought the book was actually unfilmable). Unfortunately, it was probably too much to handle for him, especially since it was his directorial debut. Basically, it was some kind of romantic fairy-tale but, while it was obviously supposed to be whimsical and charming, it turned out to be actually really cheesy, rather silly, borderline offensive but, above all, really tedious. For example, was it really a smart move to have the only prominent black character play Lucifer? Then, there is a fair chance that this movie must sting like a b*tch for all the parents who have lost a young child to cancer. Concerning the cast, Goldsman had been working in Hollywood for 25 years so he managed to gather many interesting actors among his friends and previous associates but they clearly struggled with the rather weak material. Colin Farrell did his best to look dreamy but he was hardly convincing. Russell Crowe was probably the worst of the bunch as he gave a seriously hammy performance. William Hurt had only a couple of scenes and barely left an impression. Jennifer Connelly seemed completely lost playing another really thankless role. At least, Will Smith was not bad but he had the advantage to play only 2 scenes moderating the damage in the process. What was left was the charming Jessica Brown Findlay who was the only one who managed to find the perfect tone but I’m afraid this critical flop pretty much derailed an otherwise really promising career. Anyway, the biggest issue was with the story though. Seriously, the whole thing never worked but, above all, was never entertaining whatsoever. To conclude, the damned thing was just really weak and I don’t think it is really worth a look.

Posted : 6 days, 21 hours ago on 27 November 2020 09:28 (A review of Serenity)

Since this movie had been really poorly received, I didn’t expect much from it, but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, first of all, I have to admit that it was an ambitious movie with an interesting concept. Indeed, after watching people being stuck in the Matrix, in some weird Alien world (‘Dark City’), in a TV-show (‘The Truman Show’) or in a book (‘Stranger Than Fiction’), why not in a video-game? At least, it sounded more appealing than watching Matthew McConaughey endlessly trying to catch some big tuna. Unfortunately, even though this concept definitely had some potential, it turned out to be so poorly developed, I’m afraid. The first issue was with the characters. I’m still not sure if it was because they were poorly written or because the actors involved gave some rather weak performances, especially Anne Hathaway who was seriously rather cringe-inducing to behold. Of course, you could argue that it was done on purpose because, after all, they were no real people but some characters in a video-game, but even within this concept, it didn't make these characters more interesting or entertaining. The other major issue were the major plot-holes through the whole thing. In fact, I think that probably half of the movie displayed some form of plot-holes. I'm not sure which one was the most problematic or the most annoying one but I would go for the fact that some characters in this video-game would suddenly become so aware of their predicament without a shred of explanation. Also the fact that that one of the characters would casually mention that Patrick had designed his own video-game was just so terribly lazy. Anyway, to conclude, even though Steven Knight had a decent idea, the end-result was eventually terribly weak and I don't think it is really worth a look.

Posted : 1 week ago on 26 November 2020 11:18 (A review of Athlete A)

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be a really strong documentary but, to be honest, even though it was sometimes shocking, some of it was actually hardly surprising, I’m afraid. Eventually, the only critic I might have was that the whole thing was rather scattered. Indeed, most of the duration was about the massively creepy and even rather horrifying Larry Nassar but, sometimes, it felt like the makers wanted to go beyond that and show that the gymnastics world, in general, on that such high competitive level, is actually based on child cruelty. I know my wife has always been a huge fan of gymnastics and she watches it on TV on a regular basis but I would rather skip it from now on. In this documentary, it was also argued that the cruelty regarding this young children is something specific to this sport but, while it seems to be indeed on a rather extreme level in this sport, in almost all major sports, children are scouted at a very young age. For example, in football (soccer), in Europe or South America, a young talent can be scouted at 12 years old and sent to a football training camp. It is pretty much what happened to Lionel Messi who spent basically his whole life playing in one form or another for the FC Barcelona. Coming back to Larry Nassar, I wonder why the USA Gymnastics didn’t quietly get rid off him and get some other doctor instead? I mean, Bela and Marta Karolyi, even if they might seem pretty evil as well, were the cornerstone of the whole training programme but Nassar didn’t seem to be some kind of wonder doctor. Anyway, to conclude, even if I wish they went a little bit deeper on the problematic of having such young children competing at such a high level, the whole thing was still quite heart-breaking and really interesting to behold and it is definitely worth a look.

Posted : 1 week, 1 day ago on 25 November 2020 10:03 (A review of 21 & Over)

I wasn’t expecting much from the damned thing but since I have a weak spot for Miles Teller, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I have to admit that the beginning was actually promising. I mean, sure, Miles Teller was basically playing his usual smartass guy but he was just really fun and, above all, this trio of friends was quite charismatic and surprisingly well developed. On top of that, the prospect of watching them going through a wild night of binge drinking sounded pretty neat. Unfortunately, just way too early in the movie, Jeff Chang got way too drunk and the rest of the movie was about his buddies struggling to get him home in one piece. Seriously, the whole idea was hardly entertaining, I’m afraid, and I don’t really understand why the makers ruined a perfect opportunity to see some charismatic characters doing some wild sh*t while being under the influence of alcohol and/or other illegal substances. It’s exactly for the same reason why I never really understood the appeal of ‘The Hangover’. Basically, with this massively popular R rated comedy, we were in fact deprived of one seriously wild night in Sin City. At least, in this case, you still get to see the 2 remaining characters having some fun and the Tower of Power in particular was actually pretty neat. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of a rather misguided approach, I actually had a weak spot for these guys and I think the damned thing is actually worth a look, at least, if you really like the genre.

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 23 November 2020 10:43 (A review of The Trials of Cate McCall)

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Kate Beckinsale, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I think the damned thing actually had some potential and I especially did appreciate the fact that, during the first trial, the accused, her boyfriend, the judge, the cops, basically, pretty much everyone involved turned out to be either dirty, nasty or creepy or any combination of these attributes. Unfortunately, the main character was just so focused on finding out the ‘truth’ when, in fact, a top lawyer should know, what the job is about, it’s defending your client so she actually did her job. So, the material was interesting but the approach was rather disappointing, I’m afraid. Coming back to the main character, they spent too much time on her private life and I have seen too many times the whole gimmick of the struggling recovering alcoholic to really care. The fact that Beckinsale was never really convincing, especially next to Nick Nolte who was basically born to play such characters, didn’t help either. I mean, if you decide to play an addict, at least, you should make sure that you don’t look like a top-model. Anyway, the thing that really ruined this movie for me was actually the ending though. Seriously, to see her turning against her client was just not only completely unethical but, above all, pretty lame. I mean, they provided some sound arguments that everything is never really black-and-white in such trials but, suddenly, they made this really far-fetched u-turn to show that ‘justice will prevail’ after all which was seriously hard to swallow. Anyway, to conclude, in spite a couple of decent ideas, this movie just didn’t work for me and I don’t think it is really worth a look after all.

Posted : 1 week, 3 days ago on 23 November 2020 11:38 (A review of Ben Is Back)

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was starring Julia Roberts, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, concerning Roberts, I was definitely one of her most interesting parts and I have to admit that she was not bad at all but, to be honest, I didn’t think that she was really convincing though. Still, I think she should be praised for tackling something so much more challenging than her usual work. Eventually, I had more issues with how the damned thing was written. Indeed, during the whole first half, the characters kept mentioning some past events that the audience didn’t witness so I felt I constantly had to catch up with them because of the lack of information which was rather frustrating. However, right when I was finally getting a better grip on the whole thing, they started this dog business which, in my opinion, completely derailed this tale. Seriously, how did it suppose to make sense that some major drug dealer would kidnap a dog to get back at a former employee?!? I mean, the best part was that he didn’t even leave any message or clues telling who was behind this snatching so you had to assume that the guy knew that Ben would roam all over the city until he find out he was behind all this. Even with this explanation, the whole thing was just way too far-fetched. Sure, I get the idea, the point was to get Ben’s mother sucked in his dark world for a little while but I still think it was seriously convoluted. Without mentioning the fact that drug lords usually don’t hire junkies to be their dealers because they are completely unreliable. However, there was one thing that completely worked and made the whole thing quite spellbinding to behold and it was Lucas Hedges’s pitch-perfect performance. I already noticed him before and, with each new part, he seemed to be more and more interesting but, here, he just simply blew me away. Indeed even if the story was sometimes rather shaky, he was always completely convincing, showing only through his eyes a variety of emotions going from sadness, despair, self-pity, self-disgust but also kindness, intelligence and street smart and so many other things. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think it is worth a look, if only for Hedges’s fine performance.

Posted : 1 week, 6 days ago on 20 November 2020 09:19 (A review of How to Make Love Like an Englishman)

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though the title was promising (at least, the one they used in Canada), unfortunately, it turned out to be a seriously underwhelming romantic comedy. Seriously, it was the kind of romantic comedy during which pretty much nothing worked, I’m afraid. I mean, basically, the whole point was to have Richard ending up with Olivia but the way to get there was just so convoluted, so unconvincing but, above all, not entertaining whatsoever. The basic idea was that Richard was supposed to be a major womanizer and, yet, within the first 5 mins, he was already in a long-term relationship with Kate. On top of that, there was this weird awkward scene during which he was hitting hard on Kate’s sister and, yet, none of the characters ever mentioned that fact afterwards. Anyway, even though Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba were both quite gorgeous as usual, their characters were eventually barely developed whatsoever and, if you would believe this movie, the only reason that Brosnan’s character was ever interested in them was because of their looks. Eventually, his relationship with his father was actually much more interesting thanks to a really solid Malcolm McDowell who basically stole the show every time he was on the screen which shows how poorly this movie was put together. Anyway, to conclude, even though the damned thing was rather harmless, it was still seriously weak and I don’t think it is worth a look, even if you really like the genre.

Manchester by the Sea
Notes: Even though this movie was maybe not completely flawless, it wasn't far from it and I can't remember the last time I saw a movie combining so perfectly drama and comedy. Seriously, this movie was so funny, it was very often much more hilarious than most of your average comedy. And yet, it was dealing with a really tragic story but, somehow, this mix worked miraculously well. I think that, even though the acting was quite impressive, I enjoyed most of all the writing. Indeed, the two main characters (an uncle and his nephew) were just so fascinating, with so many layers, and their dialogues were just pure gold. The ending was also very effective without forcing these characters into a more traditional happy-ending. More than 15 years ago, I was lucky enough to see 'You Can Count on Me' when it was released, it was just great to see Kenneth Lonergan making such an impressive come-back and the guy displayed once again that he has a gift to show the complex relationships within a family.

Notes: Well, it is another movie I have seen ages ago and I should probably re-watch it at some point. To be honest, I wonder how actually ended up watching the damned thing and I have to admit that I completely forgot that it was actually taking place in London. Anyway, even though it might be less famous than some of the other masterpieces directed by Marcel Carné such as ‘Hôtel du Nord’ ou ‘Le quai des brumes’, I actually much preferred this rather obscure flick. I mean, I really respect Carné’s work and I enjoyed all his classics but the big difference was that, in this case, this movie was just so hilarious. Seriously, the damned thing was actually pretty wild and I just loved it pitch-black humor. Furthermore, the dialogues were also really neat but it makes sense as they were written by Jacques Prévert, one of the most famous French poets at the time.

Beetlejuice
Notes: Even after all these years, it is still a really awesome flick. Sure, it might not be Tim Burton's best directing effort but it is definitely his most fun movie to watch. Above all, his biggest masterstroke was Beetlejuice himself. Indeed, he is such a great character, not really bad, not really good, just plain weird and, after all these years, he is still one of best characters I have ever seen in a movie. It was seriously hands down the best peformance by Michael Keaton and I’m not surprised that it is Keaton’s favorite movie he made. Back then, Tim Burton didn't need a famous book or some other sources to come up with a new movie, he would just use his own imagination and the end-result was so much more interesting than what he delivers nowadays. It’s such a pity that the guy went from being one of the most original and interesting directors working in Hollywood to a rather boring one trick pony.

Battle Royale
Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I saw this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. First of all, when ‘The Hunger Games’ was released, many fans of this movie claimed that this new blockbuster starring Jennifer Lawrence was a huge rip-off of this cult-classic. Well, eventually, I did watch ‘The Hunger Games’ but, even though the 2 movies shared some elements, they were in fact vastly different in my opinion. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, of course, the plot was rather preposterous but there was definitely something quite spellbinding about the damned thing. One of the masterstroke was to have Takeshi Kitano playing the teacher and the guy was as usual pretty awesome. To be honest, I have to admit that the whole thing was slightly too over the top for my taste and I think it would have worked better if I would have been more straightforward. Anyway, they did make a sequel a few years later, I never saw it but since the ratings were really weak, I don’t think I did miss much.

The Scent of Green Papaya
Notes: It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely rewatch it at some point. First of all, what ever happened to Anh Hung Tran?!? Back in the 1993, he burst into the film world with this movie which was a massive critical success, at least in France, following its release at the Cannes Film Festival. Unfortunately, during the last 25 years, he has made only a few movies but, expect for Xích Lô', none of them really impress anyone. Anyway, coming back to our main feature. it is nowadays pretty much forgotten but it's too bad because I think it is actually quite a fascinating feature. Indeed, right from the title, from the subtle performances to the delicate directing, there was a deep poetic quality to this movie. It is interesting to also note that, even though it might seem that it was shot on location, in fact, it was actually filmed completely on a sound stage in France.

Lilya Forever
Notes: Back then, I thought 'Fucking Åmål' was a very solid directing debut so I was really curious to see what Lukas Moodysson would do next. In fact, it took me many years to see something else from this guy but it was definitely worth it. Indeed, I thought this follow up (his 3rd directing effort, as a matter of fact) was really impressive but, to be honest, I thought it was also a really heartbreaking story. I mean, the whole thing was completely relentless and there was absolutely no redemption in this movie. When watching this flick, I was actually wondering what does a guy feel when he goes to see such an underage prostitute. Seriously, how could they possibly enjoy themselves?!? I have seen some tough movies but this one was just really hardcore and despicable and you should definitely be aware of this before watching this flick as there is a good chance you will feel terrible afterwards (I sure did).

Hi there!

I just read my comment section, I'm sometimes not that much online, I just noticed you did ask for my ten favourite films.
I'm sorry I didn't react sooner. I don't know if my vote still counts. My apologies. It's an awesome list, btw!

Here's to a year full of hope, health, and good fortune and perhaps, devoid of the Sophomoric Adolescence of 2018!

Hi Jo
I've check your 100 movies to see before... You will have to work double shift to enter all the new votes on your list. :O
