Man of Steel (2013)
I mean no disrespect. But the idea of having a superman hidden for 33 years, until an oppressor arrives and chases him... That story was told by the Bible. And I don't see the point of retelling it with aliens!! I have to say that the SM vs Zod fight is good, there's lots of action, explosions and destruction, good special effects, the journey to find the ship in the ice is good,...
So where is the failure? The storyline. Trying to reboot a series is no peace of cake. Last time they did that to superman, it wasn't good. This time, I think they went too far. There is very little point in all the krypton action. And one of the best parts of all superman stories - the "conflict" between superman and clark kent -is gone. It makes no sense that he stays in the dark for 33 years, and the first thing he does when discovered is to talk to an unknown journalist. I think the storyline makes no sense. Far from being faithful to superman story, this reboot tries to give a different perspective to this dc universe, but in a poor, senseless way, Pity.
The Big Bounce (2004)
I will never understand how they made Morgan Freeman and Charlie Sheen to join this movie.... It wants to be clever, it wants to deliver an unexpected ending and it wants to be funny. But it is a total failure.
We've seen some Owen Wilson funny movies but in this one his character is terrible. We don't connect with the "burglar" (like we do in Ocean's eleven). He is just a dumb crook being played by everyone. Charlie Sheen is even worse. No funny jokes, a stupid character. Morgan Freeman... Such a waste of talent!!!!!! Very SAD! Terrible lines!
The only thing it made me pay a little attention and make myself watch it 'till the end was hawaii's beaches and great landscapes - it really makes us want to go there!! And the very hot female character- who barely acts but brings some joy to the screen.
OK, so we all know the show is loosing it. But... why do they make completely pointless episodes???? This one is just terrible. The only thing it adds to the story is the fact that his future wife is seeing a guy. How can anyone spend an entire episode taking the "big picture" nowhere? It's just a stupid contest about a drink and a stupid discussion with future and not so future Ted and Barney about... nothing interesting. We have had bad episodes. But this is a new low for HIMYM! The episode deserves this long text ONLY because the review has a minimum length. Otherwise, skip this episode and save 20 minutes of your life to do anything else. Mine are gone. It's really sad. It's getting painful to see what is happening to a once great show.
Two and a Half Men (2003)
For me, it's over...
Forget about watching the new episodes, with Walden Schmidt. Not only, the actor is not very talented, not funny nor the character is interesting, but also has the huge job of filling Sheen's shoes. Let's be honest, the show is nothing without Charlie Sheen. OK, Jake and Alan are also great characters. But the thing about this show was the issues between the two brothers and their trouble raising a kid. It makes no sense to change the main character. They should have cancelled it. No doubt the Charlie-Alan-Jake seasons are fantastic. But that is it. Forget that someone even tried to make episodes without one of those three. It's better to remember it as good show, as it was.
Best show ever
For me, no doubt that Friends is the best sitcom ever.
For ten years we see 6 characters, with fabulous chemistry between them, growing from young employees, a bit irresponsible and goofy, to full grown ups with filled lives. But not in a sad, soap opera way. With loads of fun, stressful, painful, happy and peaceful moments, Friends pushes any viewer to sit in the café sofa and join them into, sometimes a pointless discussion or a meaningful drama. This is life, with good times and bad times, clever sense of humor, great acting, superb writing, fantastic characters. And they could do it for ten years without loosing any bit of the show's magic. Amazing!
How I Met Your Mother (2005)
Loosing it? Maybe...
How I Met Your Mother is a very simple love story, about a guy meeting his wife.
We can easily connect with all the characters. They are very "human". We can see a lot of a "pre-middle" age crisis in Ted, romantic, dreaming about settle down. Lily and Marshall are that couple we all know that has been together forever. Robin is the hot and sexy out of our league friend/dream girl. Barney is the self-centered but funny friend who sometimes we can't stand, but we can't live without.
Being that simple and straight to the point, how can you make it last for so long? And why????
Overall, the first seasons were very good, with lots of twists and turns, funny clues and an overwhelming Stinson! But after season 5... I think they lost the point. Nowadays, we see very little development in each character. There are episodes with no story at all. Flashbacks, which used to be one of the best parts of the show, are becoming lame, stupid and pointless. 7 out of 10, only because it would be unfair to ignore that it started as an excellent show...
For Your Eyes Only (1981)
One of the very best...
...If not the best 007 of all! Roger Moore's humor and the cold war are two of the best ingredients of this movie.
The search for a submarine and ship tracking system in the middle of the cold war is not only perfectly possible as a real mission for a secret agent, but also an excellent story to make a movie about!
Therefore, I think this 007 has a quite simple but very effective story, because, as usual in any Bond mission, if he fails, there will be serious repercussions to the world (sometimes, it was total annihilation,but this time it would be "only" about great changes in cold war strategy, which would fit perfectly in the history scenario, imagining this story as true), but these consequences are real, can be fitted into a real part of our recent history. Apart from its not very detailed technology and political games, this could almost be a Tom Clancy's novel!
Added to this, the traditional Moore's sense of humor, the great action sequences (like the ski descent and the yellow Citroen chase) and really evil villains(Kristatos is a cold blooded murderer, with no respect for life, not a fool idealist like Blofeld), all mixed up, become a really great spy movie, where Roger Moore makes a great performance, leaving the slightly goofy Bond of Live and Let Die way behind! In fact, I think that with this movie, only Pierce Brosnan is better at the part than Roger Moore.
