Cazuza is the name of one of the most incredible singers in Brazil,he
begun in the 80s with his band called Barao Vermelho,after the great
success of the band he decided to start a solo career,but his future
was drastically destroyed by his death in 1991 of AIDS.But actually
nothing could stop Cazuza because he still inspire people in Brazil,so
in some way he remains alive in all of us.
The movie is incredible and a real masterpiece.Daniel de Olivera plays the singer and gives a performance that makes you be astonished by his talent.No one on earth could play Cazuza as Daniel played!The way he speaks,he acts,it's almost creepy!He is Cazuza you are going to be quite impressed!
Everything in his story is poetic, his music sometimes in the movie speaks for itself, and the beauty of his musics makes us sad and happy in the same time.Na explosion of feelings is what you feel,marvelous feeling.The time doesn't stop but Cazuza made it stop.And he could do whatever he wanted!Viva Cazuza!
A clever plot with an inspiring cast,thats how I define O homem que
copiava(The man who copied).We follow the journey of Andre,a fotocopy
operator that works in a small city.Without challenges in his life or
money,he decides to turn a voyeur.He buys a binocle and starts spying the
girl that lives in front of his apartment.Later he becomes her friend and
gets obsessed about her life.
But if he wants to win her heart he must win a lot of money,so he decides to copy cash in his fotocopy machine,then...It happens lots of things,and I'm sure everybody will be delighted with the funny and crazy things that Andre does to win money!
Andre is played by Lazaro Ramos,one of the best actors of the new brazilian generation, he plays with such frankness and innocence Andre that fits perfectly to the great actor!Add to the story ,the beauty and talent of the most enjoyable,funny,sexy and above all things breath taking Luana Piovani playing the girl who works at the same stationer's shop that Andre.There is Pedro Cardoso very comfortable in his role and Leandra Leal playing Sylvia,the passion of Andre.
The movie has almost the same interaction of Nueve Reinas,the argentinian movie with Ricardo Darin!If you Liked Nueve Reinas you'll certainly like O homem que copiava.It hasn't arrived at the United States yet ,but when arrive run to the cinema ,cos' you won't be disappointed!!
8 out of 10
Original Sin was released after Tomb Raider in USA, cos' MGM thought that
opening the movie after the smash hit of Lara Croft's debut in the big
screen, would call atention of the viewers because of Jolie.Sweat
Nobody went to the cinema to watch this `caliente' movie.It is not good but it is not the worst movie of all times.You can count here with a sexy Jolie and a usual Banderas always playing the latino guy with the strong accent.
The story is full of twists and turns and it ends very well for a forgetable movie.Original Sin is just entertainment for adults who wants to see strong sex scenes and a poor plot that is just excuse to show the nudity of both Jolie and Banderas.
5 out of 10.
Hey!40 days and 40 nights isn't bad!It's silly but not bad!I've laughed a lot watching the situations that Matt(Hartnet) face during his 40 days of abstinence of sex.Josh Hartnet is just the most funny character and he basic carry the movie.It's better than those typical comedies of teenagers like She's all that,Whatever it takes....bleeeerrrrr It's perfect for a Sunday afternoon!6 out of 10
New concepts of movie are always welcome!Movies like "Waking Life","Fight Club","The Matrix" bring to the audience a new style of cinema entertainment.Cinema is not only Blockbusters, you have art movies expressed by the independent works in the most part of the time. Memento is a chalenge to the viewer who wants to play a little game created by the director Christopher Nolan.You become the eyes of Leonard Shelby with his problem,amnesia.The story begins with the climax,the end of everything and it finishes with the beginning.It is a bit confusing!But this is the kind of picture you have to watch,over and over agin. After the credits you start constructing the story in your brain to try to understand what hapenned with the character of Guy Pearce.It is a cerebral film! The DVD released in Brazil brought an extra which helps a lot, it is the option to watch the film in its right cronological time(not the reverse one).Those who wants to enter in Nolan's world get ready because this movie stays in your head.Because it's good and intriguing.Definately one of the best ever!
Waking Life is pure art and philosphy.It is a product made for reflexions
and to make you analyze everything you see in the world.Why the human been
doesn't ask questions anymore?Did he got used to the reality which you just
have to live your life without questioning the importance of it and why he
are alive.The movie is constructed by dialogues with the main character who
just listen tho opinion of the others.Those dialogues are about
existenciliasm,violence,language,death,dreams and relashionship.It is a
travel to the philosophy.It is exposed the thoughts of great man life
Sartre,Tomas de Aquino,Aristoteles and the still search of man trying to
explain the reality,what we live!It's just a big trip!
The art is incredible,the actors were filmed by a small camera and after this process artists painted them with colors,life a cartoon within the reality.The work gets surreal as the movie roles.It was a wonderful idea and a new concept of doing movies(which shows that cinema isn't dead).It is a shame that the academy didn't considered Waking Life in the new category of the Oscar.
Waking Life is only for fews who want to do reflexions on your life.Most of the people won't like because is an unconventional movie.But those who wants to start thinking about the world ,the existence and the meaning of many things we deal on life it is a great experience.
Rent,watch and think!
I've just returned from an advance screening of The Two Towers here in
Brazil and I'm very fulfilled. Everything went fine in the second adaptation
of Tolkien's book.The story is fantastic as always ,the characters show
anger and want to fight for freedom of the Middle Earth.
The best in this picture are the battles that were extremely well realised , the Ents fighting were great and the scenes with Gollum are at the same time funny and scary.The story follows where The Fellowship of the Ring stopped, you see the parallel stories of Frodo and Sam going to destroy the ring and the story of Legolas,Aragorn and Gimli(the most funny in the entire picture) trying to rescue Merry and Pippin.
More characters were added to the story.First Eowyn(Miranda Otto) a woman with presence and that has very good facial expressions,she doesn't act too much. She's there just to cause jealousy in Arwen with a bigger cameo in this picture.Théoden is just excellent and Grima is just fantastic.
It is not better than the first but is very good too.It has more effects and more freedom to tell the story cos' now Peter Jackson doesn't have to explain the story of the book,who wants to really understand Tolkien's world must read his books.The 3 hours pass quickly as a thunder(if you enjoy the story!).It can't be analized alone because the movie doesn't have a conclusion so it's a great second part,with a lot of jokes, battles, adventure, beautiful places and a story of hope , fight for a good cause and of course the ring.
Signs has suspense,good performances and an excellent story which was
terriebly developed.M. night Shyamalan has a very good taste to pick his
plots.First he chosed to film one of the greatest movies of all times The
Sixth Sense.The second choice had an interesting story but the heroe thing
destroyed everything,everything in this movie sounded too fake!Then comes
Not a masterpiece or even a film which will be remenbered.It's totaly forgetable!The signs that is present in the title of the motion picture is just scenery to tell the story of a depressed family .Reverend Grahan Hess lost his wife in a shocking car accident so lost his faith abandoning the church.His children are the best in the picture very funny,specially the little girl!Rory Culkin ,Mackauly's brother,shows a lot of potential to the big screen.Joaquin Phoenix doesn't have a big role but is also good.
Now Mel Gibson give one of his best performances in his career.He's just amazing and very convincing.He's a disturbed man who tries not to forget his dead wife and he dies every day losing his faith.One of the positive aspects of the story ,is the seek for believe and faith.
The story begins showing the signs in the plantations in the farm of Hess.Then we move to the preparation to the alien invasion ,finishing with a very interesting confront with the alien itself.Shyamalan is always trying not to show the alien, he uses shadows and a few parts of its body to appear on the screen.This is good because a good suspense never shows the threat he hides it until the end.
This movie will have different oppinions.Some will like it ,others will hate it.But it's much better than the terrieble Umbreakable.If you have time go and watch it. 6/10
Relashionships are curious and very funny.Love is complex as sex is too.To
do it you'll need to have sinthony with the other person.Those kinds of
problems are boarded in this movie.There x and y love stories.This one is a
story about commomn people that for the society they could be crazy and
different.I think it's unfair cos' there are more crazy people than you
Back to the movie:Watch it with an impartial view.Don't judge their behaviors,because you might want to do them one day on life.Franke Janssen is thet sex addicted with a lot of love to show.The story has twist and turns and is only about one thing.Meeting the perfect date.Cliché but original,which is something unusual for most of the movies about Love&Sex.Worthwatching in a Sunday evening.
Anatomie is a great horror/suspense movie.It's different from the horror
movies which are always the same and very boring.Inded!The movie is very
well produced and with a lot of creative and scary.I had never watched a
german movie in my life ,and now I'll give more attention for them. Because
this move deserves attention especially in the rest of the
Franka Potente is just superb and pretty.I think she's very cute and has a lot of potential.She's one of the most promisor actresses on hollywood.And now she's only success after she played `The Bourne Identity' and in the next `Try Sennteen'.She has potential!
The movie goes well until the end.In the final hours you'll be a little upset with the twists in the story and some facts not very understandable.But you'll survive!The autopsy scenes are incredible and horrible at the same time.Imagine you, seeing people stripping your body, your organs and muscles.It's just terrieble!But,I think that these things really happens with innocent people.Some `doctors' must go on the streets looking for beggars and deficient people to anatomize their bodies.I think that some institutions do these sort of things and it's really sad!
It's brutal and degrating the way that ,in the movie, doctors do the autopsy in common and nondead people.You can see that this motion picture isn't just to entertain us but for raise doubts about the medicine system in the world.These atrocious facts could be happening right now on your city , and you won't know anything.
This movie is essencial for those who want to follow the medicine carreer.It's a great database!And it worthwhile!
P.S.:Conclusion:Pay attention to the other countrie's movies cause it's not only North America that does it well!
