Cabin Fever (2002)
This is truly a bad waste of time!
I comment very seldom on movies at the IMDb, but I tell you folks: Believe all the bad reviews you find in here! This movie is so badly written and contains so many dull predictable scenes - the longer you watch it the more you start asking yourself: Where is the suspense? Will there be any scary scenes? Why do all the characters act in the most stupid way to find a solution for a problem? Shame on me that, I believed the qoutes on the DVD-Box: "This is the future of horror movies! (Quentin Tarantino).
I fell in this trap and bought the piece for a nice horror movie evening as I do it once in a while. But I didn't see a bigger crap since months. Spare your money and keep off.
The Thin Red Line (1998)
The thin red line of seriousness.
After all these enthusiastic comments I feel the necessity to
support the viewers who disliked this movie. I'm mid 30 and I've
seen a whole lot of action - and especially war films. But sorry
guys - this was a real stinker. I was looking forward for Sean Penn
and John Cusack, but they all spoke these badly written dialogs of
significance and unbelievable importance. Was is meant as
serious poetry comes to me as sticky kitschy attempts to produce
"the other", the sensitive war movie. The music supports this -
sorry- cheapness. Well, understand me right: From early
black/white to arthouse and from John Woo to Woody Allen - I like
a big range of films. I'm a friend of looong epic movies and I do not
need hammer action at all to call a good movie a good movie, but I
need more than 5 or 6 good written scenes to fill such a long film
with REAL drama. As some guys mentioned before, I too could not
care much for the characters - although the acting was fine as
expected (Koteas! Nolte! Penn). It's badly written (perfect for enemies of meaningful off-voices!). But
it's up to you to give it a try anyway. Do NOT expect a classic
masterpiece (like Apocalypse Now or Full Metal Jacket). 6/10
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
no story - just vidoe game promotion
Can you hear my sigh? 1) Matrix had all the potential. With a little more intelligence in storytelling this state of the art & style movie could have been the younger brother of masterpieces like Blade Runner or Alien. I cared for the characters and I enjoyed all the speed and the eye candy. This first one had a story to tell. 2) Matrix Reloaded still has this stylish green/grey/black look and the more than usual styled costumes. And receive my respect for the highway scenes and the scenes around Miss Bellucci and her guy (these scenes deliver the rare humour and oneliners of the movie). Fine. But to be honest: Did YOU realy care for anyone in this movie? What about those faceless and lost crowd of beauties dancing in the middle of the earth (Zion)? They laid a portion of pathos over it and lost all the impact of the powerful soundtrack in part 1! Why didn't they spent one of those billions for FX just in a clever screenplay? Aren't you seeking for something MORE in a movie - guys, whats wrong with a thrilling story inbetween all those playstation levels they offered to us viewers? Well after all this one is only slightly better than the truely terrible Star Wars 2 (Hey! - and I'm still a huge SciFi fan!). Of course we'll all watch part three - just to know how it ends. But the magic of part one is truely gone.
L'ultimo cacciatore (1980)
Believe me folks - It REALLY deserves it's 4.4 rating
Although I'm a fan of the war movie genre I hardly could get through this. This movie has 20 minutes of good, believable and tense scenes - the rest is really cheap and not even entertaining. I trusted some of the reviews here and bought the DVD unfortunately. Do not waste your money on this one - see the real A.N.Redux instead. ... not to mention the STRANGE soundtrack (No - you will NOT love it)!
Die Another Day (2002)
It's just a number - but disappointing
I've seen this movie at the opening weekend in L.A. and it was obviously a big hit for the mostly younger audience. In fact I still think, that this one was only done for the american market for theatre visitors under 25. The whole "Iceland-chapter" shows more nonsense than every other Bond I´ve seen before. But the most embarrassing scene of this film is Brosnan's (second) surf ride after he was cut off the ice wall by the satelite. I have no words for this tasteless idea. To keep it short: One good oneliner and a fine sword fighting scene doesn't provide enough material for another clever Bond movie. This is unfortunately just a waste of the realy fine actors in a plotless but - well - watchable action movie. After the realy bad Star Wars II I quit being a Jedi - now I think about leaving the MI6. Cheap script+tasteless direction: 5/10
Reindeer Games (2000)
Ben Affleck is the wrong guy for this genre
A nice movie of the master John Frankenheimer that will entertain you action lovers out there. But I think that casting Mr Affleck was a mistake that made some scenes more unbelievable that they would be with a tougher guy. Anyway: 7/10
Stupid dialog - excellent Plummer
If you like the gifted Kinski and the excellent Christopher Plummer you can give this piece a (one) chance. Bang! Plummer deserves all the praise for his portrait of a real baddie with a clever and cynical mind. But do not expect to much brain of this B-picture.
The Tailor of Panama (2001)
Action lovers: Let this be your lesson
I´m a dedicated fan of good action movies, because there is
quality in every genre. But this little gem does not need any car
chases or else to be convincing. Fine one liners and excellent
clever characters make this a very watchable and sometimes
cynical movie. Good book, good actors, a little to less Jamie. Anyway: A clear 8/10 on my list
The Highwayman (2000)
Worth a look
Thanks for the synchronisation! I watched a fast and funny piece of hardboiled gangster movie and I enjoyed especially the performances of Boyd Banks and Laura Harris. Unfortunately the film looses a little bit of its suspense and the script gets weaker.
Anyway - a good watch if you like tough gangster movies with a portion of violence.
Joan of Arc (1999)
Well done Mr. Besson
This movie manages to handle a religious theme without being to
moralizing or kitschy. The acting is first rate and the
cinematography is state of the art. If you can stand some rude
knight fights and powerful battle scenery, then come and enjoy this
well done movie. I especially enjoyed Dustin Hoffmanns
appearance as the dry commentator and mirror of Joan's pure
