Rear Window (1954)
Notes: To be honest, even though I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, I must admit it, I was actually slightly disappointing. The point is that I wanted to watch this movie for so long and so badly that I had some massive expectations and I’m afraid it didn’t really fulfill those expectations. I mean, it is a very good thriller, no doubt about it, developing some interesting ideas around the fact we are all some peeping toms, especially us, the movie watchers. I also enjoyed the fact that the main character was pretty much an arrogant douchebag who can’t even be satisfied when the lovely Grace Kelly tells him that she loves him and wants to take care of him until the day he dies. The ending was also terrific and those last 10 minutes were completely nail-biting. Still, that’s the main issue, except for those last 10 minutes, there were a lot of unnecessary scenes distracting us from the obsessive behavior of the main character and the whole thing took forever to finally take off. Still, these were some minor flaws and even though it might not be the amazing masterpiece I was expecting, it remains an amazing thriller.

Ocean
Notes: Did we really need another sequel/spinoff from 'Ocean's Eleven'? Probably not but, at least, it was pretty neat that they came up this time with an all new female crew. Unfortunately, the damned thing still turned out to be terribly disappointing, I'm afraid. First of all, even if the cast was nice, I was still missing some other big names like Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon or Sigourney Weaver. To make things worse, the directing was terribly bland. Eventually, it's only after watching this movie that I understood how important was Steven Soderbergh for the success of the first installment. Indeed, it was full of energy, fun and witty and this new installment terribly missed all this. Another issue was that the story was rather boring and even the actual heist was disappointing. Seriously, I never had the feeling that I was watching some seasoned con artists and it felt more watching some girls playing thiefs.

The Wanton Countess
Notes: Even though Luchino Visconti started his career with ‘Ossessione’, the first Italian neorealist film, later on in his career he would become famous for his luxurious dramas involving the Italian aristocracy, the most famous one being ‘Il Gattopardo’. Surprisingly, I still haven’t watched ‘Il Gattopardo’ but I did watch his one which Visconti made 10 years after his directing debut. To be honest, I’m not sure if I really cared about the story. Basically, it was a rather standard doomed love story and the fact that I wasn’t really familiar with this time period didn’t help either. Eventually, what I really enjoyed about this movie was above all the mood created thanks to a gorgeous cinematography. On top of that, apparently, Visconti wanted Ingrid Bergman and Marlon Brando to play the lead roles but Alida Valli and Farley Granger were some great choices as well. Anyway, even though it might not be one of Visconti’s best movies, it was still a really solid period drama.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

A good movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Norwan Jewison, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually it did remind me of ‘Dr. Strangelove’ which was released a couple of years before and even though it didn’t reach the level of Stanley” read more

Seven Samurai (1954)
Notes: To be honest, I didn’t remember that this movie was so long (it would be in fact Akira Kurosawa’s longest directing effort) but it didn’t matter since the damned thing was so entertaining. Thanks to the long running time, we had indeed the opportunity to understand what was going on with this village, what was their struggle and how they would try to find a solution. In the following acts, they really took their time to show the strategy developed by the samurais instead of giving us some non-sensical action scenes like you usually get in a Michael Bay movie for example. Eventually, it is one of these rare movies which, even though it is more than 60 years old, still feels so modern and it was basically a major milestone in motion picture history as it is usually considered as the first action movie ever made. At the end of the day, even though it might not be my favorite movie directed by Kurosawa, I still really enjoyed the damned thing and it is much better than its remake which was still a worthy movie though.

Blended
Victim: Drew Barrymore (again and for the 3rd time already...) Worldwide Gross: $128,034,610 Note: Sandler was working here with Drew Barrymore for the 3rd time around and while this movie never reached the level of '50 First Dates', at least, they had once again some good chemistry together. Furthermore, I have to admit that the whole thing was rather harmless but, unfortunately, someone thought it would be really fun to send them to some resort in Africa which was just a terrible idea.

“Of course, since I have never cared for Adam Sandler, I wasn't really expecting much from this flick but, somehow, I still ended up watching the damned thing. Well, even though it was nothing really amazing, it was still far from being his worst movie. Indeed, Sandler was working here with Drew Barr” read more

Bright                                  (2017)
Notes: Eventually, I have to agree with all the critics, this movie was just seriously weak. At first, it turned out to be some kind of mix of 'End of Watch', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'District 9' which was pretty weird but, except for some very poor jokes, it actually had some potential. However, from the moment they get their hands on this magic wand, the damned thing just became rather lame. Indeed, not only the plot was just a convoluted mess but, above all, the whole thing was just a succession of rather boring generic actions scenes. I mean, sure, technically speaking, these action scenes were not bad but it became so tedious when the 2 main characters got stuck in a new shoot-out just after surviving one. Furthermore, I won't blame Will Smith and Joel Edgerton but their characters were rather boring. Indeed, even if there was a running time of 2 hours, since there was such a focus on the action stuff, there was no room left to develop these 2 guys or any other character. For David Ayer who had impressed everyone with 'End of Watch', it was another disappointing directing effort and, for Netflix, well, I guess we will have to wait a little bit longer before they blow us away with an amazing blockbuster.
