An average movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved and since it was directed by David Gordon Green, I was quite eager to check it out.

On the Waterfront (1954)
Notes: Even though Marlon Brando’s career has always been rather inconsistent, I have always been a huge fan of the guy and since this flick is considered as one of his classics, I was quite eager to check it out. Man, at the time, he was really on fire and gave one of his best performances, arguably one of the best performances ever given by an actor. Personally, I still prefer ‘A Streetcar named Desire’ but this flick is definitely not far behind. Anyway, 3 years after making this seminal classic, Elia Kazan was working again with Marlon Brando and the end-result was once again quite impressive. Basically, contrary to most of the movies produced by Hollywood at the time and still nowadays, the main character was not some kind of almighty hero but an average man who was deeply flawed. However, even though the guy was not a real hero, he still showed some dignity but it didn’t mean that the whole thing would end up with an happy ending and the grim tone remained from the beginning until the end.

A good movie

“Since I have always been a big fan of Orson Welles, I was really eager to check his famous last directing effort which was finally released more than 30 years after his death. First of all, even though Netflix has been criticised for putting their money in some really dubious projects just to fill i” read more

La Strada
Notes: I have seen this movie a very long time ago but I was very impressed and I never have forgot it. To be honest, even though I have watched many other movies directed by Fellini, very often, it didn’t really connect with them, even some massive classics like ‘La Dolce Vita’ and ‘8 ½’. I mean, I did like them and I could see why they were considered masterpieces but they simply didn’t really blow me away. This movie was an exception though and it remains my favorite one from this director. Indeed, with this movie, you still had the poetic side of Fellini but this feature was also pretty realistic and I just loved this combination. I was also really impressed by Giulietta Masina. I mean, Anthony Quinn was really good as well but Masina really stole the show portraying some kind of female Charles Chaplin character. Anyway, even though it is more than 60 years old, it remains a great classic.

A Star Is Born
Notes: Apparently, it is a very popular story and they have made already 4 different versions with the latest one coming out in 2018 directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Lady Gaga. In fact, this latest version actually turned out to be a big critical and commercial success. Even though we are only talking about the official versions, they are also so many movies following the same template such as the infamous 'Showgirls'. Anyway, back to the movie itself, I know it is a beloved classic and, indeed, it was quite entertaining but I honestly didn't care much about the whole thing. I don't know, like I said before, it is a very old standard story and maybe I have seen some similar tales too often before. I have to admit it though, Judy Garland was pretty good but, in fact, I was more interested in James Mason who is such a fine actor and eventually, I would rather have had the movie focusing on him. Anyway, it is and remains a classic, a very well made musical with an ageless story so it is definitely worth a look.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage
Notes: Well, I have to admit that I really enjoyed the first action scene and, for a while, I thought the damned thing might turn out to be a nice surprise after all. On top of that, Xander Cage is so much more fun and entertaining than Dominique Toretto's who is such a bore. Unfortunately, after this cool come-back scene with the main character, I was amazed by how long it took them to bring up another neat action scene like that. Basically, most of the movie was filled with some seriously boring scenes when the characters had the most tedious conversations. Another issue was also the number of characters involved. Indeed, while 'xXx' was basically a one-man show, this time around, there was about a dozen of characters involved which made the whole thing looked like a mix of 'The Fast and The Furious' with 'The Expendables'. As a result, instead of getting some badass action scenes, they gave us some endless interactions between all these characters which was just not really entertaining at all.
