johanlefourbe posted a review of Alex Cross

An average movie

“Even though this movie has a lame reputation, somehow, I still ended much watching the damned thing. Well, even though I had some rather low expectations, it turned out to be even weaker than I expected. I mean, I don't think it was a bad idea to make a prequel involving Alex Cross and I do think th” read more

An average movie

“I wasn’t really dying to see this flick but since my wife really loved the first installment, I thought we might as well watch it together. Well, they basically followed the same formula and if you didn’t like ‘Mamma Mia!’, you probably won’t like this flick either. For this new installmen” read more

Mr. Hulot
Notes: Even though I did like this movie and even though it’s supposed to be be Jacques Tati’s best directing effort, I thought it was pretty good but still nothing really mind-blowing. I mean, sure, the whole thing was really sweet and clever but it was never really interesting or seriously entertaining. It is pretty obvious that Tati was some kind of French version of Charles Chaplin but the big difference was that Chaplin put so much poetry, drama in his stories and his characters, even if they were completely silent, were so much more developed than here. Indeed, Tati never really allows you to care about Hulot or the different characters involved and, as a result, I had a hard time to really care about what they were going through. Still, in contrary to ‘Jour de fête’ which I saw when I was a teenager, I was able to appreciate the tone delivered by Tati and the damned thing was also a great time capsule showing how it must have been to go on holiday in France back in the 50’s. Finally, it was pretty neat to see that this character was an obvious inspiration for Rowan Atkinson when he created his Mr. Bean.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

A good movie

“To be honest, even though I really enjoyed 'Sicario', I was surprised that they decided to make a sequel. Indeed, it seemed to be a rather self-contained story and it wasn't really what you could call a huge blockbuster. Anyway, I wanted to check if this sequel was any good, even if it wasn't direct” read more

An average movie

“To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Samuel L. Jackson, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid. The first issue I had was with Luke Wilson. Indeed, even if he did look the part, he gave a rather weak perf” read more

A good movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since the story was intriguing, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, even though I'm a rather lousy chess player, I think it is a fascinating game so it was really neat to see a movie dealing with Bobby Fisher, probably one of the best c” read more

The Earrings of Madame de...
Notes: Eventually, I really liked this movie and I thought it was much more enjoyable than 'Lola Montès', another classic from Max Ophüls which I saw already twice. The tricky thing with this director is that his movies are always visually so elaborate, they are always a marvel to look at, but, as a result, they might seem really superficial. In this case, the fact that it was dealing with the frivolous romances of the Aristocrats didn't help either. And, yet, even though I usually don't care much for this genre, this story did work very well. It mostly had to do with the stellar performances from Charles Boyer, Danielle Darrieux and Vittorio De Sica but their characters were also very well written. Indeed, they really evolved through this tale and I actually cared about what these characters were going through. I have to admit that my rating might be slightly too harsh and I will probably re-watch it at some point.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
Notes: To be honest, I have to admit that I was actually slightly better than the tedious previous installement. Indeed, it was actually pretty neat that Alice was going back to Racoon City and especially to the Hive, 16 years after the first instalment. Still, it doesn’t mean that it was a good movie, far from it I’m afraid. I mean, sure, after all these years, Milla Jovovich still looks really lovely and she still can kick some major ass but I wish I would see her doing something else after all these years. In fact, I was actually disappointed by the action scenes. It’s not that they were really bad, I was more bothered by the fact that they were rather poorly edited with some really annoying quick cuts. Seriously, as a result, some of the scenes were borderline unwatchable. Another thing that disappointed me was the supporting characters. For example, it was nice that Ruby Rose was added to the mix but her character was barely developed and the other characters were even less interesting. Anyway, even if this movie was not as bad as I expected, it was still pretty weak.
