X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
For being not a fan...i was impressed
First let me elaborate my relationship with the whole xmen franchise
As a child I loved the cartoons and series, I later liked the first movie a lot , but everything else after that( even the much appreciated first class) for me felt like ' meh' at it best, not bad or something but in a category of movies i would completely have forgotten next week after.
Voilà that being said my expectations for this were pretty low. If it would had some decent spectacle it would be already fine for me. But wow this movie truly amazed me in a very very positive way.
Story wise, directing, characters, acting,spectacle,music,sound its all form an incredible level, and to me this is hands down the best xmen movie to date i saw!
Very well done mr singer,cast and crew perhaps i become after all a fan of xmen movies :)
2 hours watching annoying immoral unstable people....
first of all I'm no teenager who only likes transformers... i actually like a lot of slower movies but! i had 2 major problems with this movie 1 i had absolutely 0 sympathy for the main characters as i mentioned in the title they where pretty annoying,very unstable and so wrong with morality 2 having such main characters... other than being depressed,they actually doing absolutely...NOTHING! 5min in the movie i started to dislike the main character...she arrives hours(!) late at her on wedding,but feeling any guilt by letting so many people who're loving her wait for hours,Nooo... she found it necessary to go first hug her horse and let the guests wait a little longer... at the wedding its pretty fast clear that she is surrounded by people who love her very very dear (with the exception of the mother perhaps) and how she repays their love... by showing no respect at all, been missing all the time,cheating (!) her husband with some loser,insulting her boss who actually promotes her to a fancy position as a wedding gift so rude he has no option to fire her...torture her horse and insulting every single person who's actually kind to her.. her sister has better morals but boy is she unstable and weak... then finally keither Sutherland character was the only one who i liked just until he appeared to be the biggest coward of them all by taking his own life abandoning wife and child... so for me it was 2hours plus seeing characters i so dislike while they're actually doing absolutely nothing most of the time... at the end i was actually so glad that melancholia planet hit earth and everybody died...seriously i was happy... 2 10 hours of my life wasted only recommendable for those who like what i just described,otherwise avoid it like the plague
The Green Hornet (2011)
saw it for FREE!
otherwise i would be in my worst shitty mood imanigable.
first of all i didn't now anyything about green hornet(except its superheroalike), i just wanted something light to digest on a Sunday afternoon...
i thought superheroes where characters with a cause, a mission, or at the least... a SKILL! this protagonist is a dumb retarded moron who annoyed me already after 5 min. also these days, gluing random 'supposedly funny scenes together is called a script? to much to complain about to this movie, but not worth the effort as i will have forgotten it already by the half of next week
The Expendables (2010)
Sex and the city,.... for men!
I laugh at many of the hate comments as what the hell did they expect? a romantic comedy? award winning performances? deep dialogues? Freudian complex character study?
common give me a break!!! from the beginning you should know this is all about guns,explosives and oneliners from start to finish and homage to silly 80's action flicks.
and this is simply exactly what you get.
while i will never understand what most woman think so great about sex and the city( fashion? shoes? what the hell?)
so this is for men/boys who will be thrilled to see their old heroes from back in the days once more on screen kicking everybody's ass! (oh and no i also like deep intellectual movies, its all about expectations)
Clash of the Titans (2010)
I saw this for free, otherwise i would never forgive myself.
as an admirer of historical,mythology and epic material,I went to this movie with very low expectations, no knowledge at all about the original movie. I just wanted an exciting entertaining thing to watch,...
dear lord this movie was indescribably bad
this is an insult to cinema, this is an insult to script writers, this is an insult to all directors in the world ,this is an insult to all special effects ever created, this is an insult to Greek mythology, this is an insult to the meaning of 'epic' ,this is an insult to all actors in the world ,this is an insult to my intelligence.
this movie was so weak, at a certain point you just don't give a damn anymore! epic waste of time, millions of dollars wasted to 'create' this?
horrible, avoid AT ALL costs! don't even watch it for free! if you have developed even just a little bit sense of critical judgment, you are not going to like this
The Stepfather (2009)
...I better invested in something else. my expectations were low, but I always give things a chance.the only thing i was hoping for was it contained at least some nice tensfull atmosphere throughout the whole movie.
for me, the movie started promising, the opening scene was well appreciated. but after that everything started to go downhill very very fast.I'm not wasting my time to describe every flaw in detail, as I have already lost too much time by watching this wreckage. but in general: too much predictable clichefest( you truly don't even need to see the movie to know the ending), too much implausible events, or acts by the characters. to much of bad stuff unworthy to talk about.
presumably highly appreciated by 12 year old, people who've never seen similar movies like this, or people who lacks criticism,... for all other people: avoid it like your life depends on it!
IF you ignore your sanity and still want to see this, i can highly recommend you don't spend any money for this,... not on DVD, especially not in the cinema.
Dossier K. (2009)
Better then the first movie
this is one of the finer products of Belgian cinema.
jan verheyen, truly transcended his own abilities, by delivering this excellent piece of work. this is a very well directed story, brought in a gritty, visual style. the acting is class. the story is wel paced, balanced.the casting was beyond excellent.especially the Albanian actors convinced very much. also an impressive composed soundtrack which have all the right elements to translate the gloominess , drama and tragedy very well.
if you like drama, you'll love this, if you like crimemovies, I can recommend this the only minor point to me are some jokes, but those that didn't ruin the whole movie experience for me. highly recommendable, not only for Belgian/dutch/Albanian people, but truly for everyone
what we learned??
if I was a highly skilled top class assassin i would;...
1.never taking a cabdriver hostage to drive me around, why risk so much, while we have an incredible invention like GPS now these days.
2 but If I had a cab driver taking hostage, what are the chances I'll having morality conversations with him all the time, or even more school him some labor laws,or how maintaining his self confidence and he should go for his dream girl,... utterly strange if you ask me
3 I also would absolutely never keep a dead body in my trunk,for obvious reasons, shouldn't basic training learned me to erase,dump or get rid of all evidence and tracks , especially if its a body?
4 i would never draw so much attention and expose myself as tom c did. pulling a gun kill 6 or more men in a dance club with hundreds of witnesses is more like a Rambo style, not assassins style. also executing 2 gang members by firing 6shots 20 yards away from a crowdy pedestrians is in my opinion not the best plan to do. but if Michael Mann is directing you you can comfortably get away with it:-)
5 I think if i'm really that good and experienced assassin, I would be able to remember the 5 names you are about to kill in case you loose your information
6 so if then my gutless hostage of a cabdriver is the one who's responsible for losing and destroying my briefcase with all its contents. i would probably not forgive him and execute him right on the spot.
7 to retrieve some data with the big boss, why should I let do my hostage do that? the man lacks confidence and probably have never seen a gun up so close before this day,... oh yes lets send him into lions hole full of vicious mobsters to do some convincing acting performance? OK then,...
and last but not least. 8 being skillful, masterful professional, highly trained, experienced assassin, I would probably win a Mexican standoff vs an amateur who probably never fired a gun before,...
but then again I'm not a hit-man nor a movie maker
I pity the people who don't understand this kind of humor
Personally I do not understand bad reviews and comments on this. if you can't see the humor in this , I think there is is something wrong with you and not this movie.
of course humor comes in many forms and is very personal and subjective to anyone. but please, if you open up your mind a little bit, you'll "understand" the humor of it and if you do, you will laugh your ass of and crap your pants( seriously it almost happened)
to me this was way better than borat. of course one could never tell 100% exactly which jokes were staged and which weren't , but anyway the movie is highly entertaining and it provided me many many laughs.
humor is about provoking(IF YOU MAKE A JOKE? YOU'LL ALWAYS ALWAYS PROVOKE OR HURT SOMEONE ON THIS PLANET, even how innocent it might be), Sasha baron Cohen, combines it to another form of humor: exaggeration and he does it to the extreme. some people will be uncomfortable by it , but for me it really worked out well and no I don't hate America , black people, or fags. but i really like to laugh with stupid, narrow minded people
3:10 to Yuma (2007)
really this movie left me with a very confusing feeling,... i liked about 9/10th of the movie very very much, and most of it really pleased me. but the 1/10th I didn't liked was so horrible bad,I still don't know what to think.
first the GOOD:
I enjoyed the story, the acting performances( not only bale and crowe are acting marvelous) the pace of the story, the gun battles, and the build up to the climax was for me nothing less then incredible and very good film-making of a very high level!
but then the BAD.
there were minor things in the plot I asked myself some questions about the plausibility. but as I am watching a movie for the first time, I always intend to stay as positive as possible, so I can enjoy the ride until the very end ,nontheless they're maybe "matters" i don't agree with
examples of what I didn't understand is why the guarding crew is treating their prisoner almost like a teddy bear after he multiple times proves what kind of a vicious tricky bandit he is. I had also difficulties with the apaches,... knowing you are deep in enemy apache territory, you make a fire to make it cosy so bloodthirsty apaches can see you from like 50miles far???
oh and what do they do when they get eventually attacked??? no one even attempt to put the fire OUT??
and for me it was also a little bit far fetched why bales character so desperately want to impress his son so he accept a 100% SUICIDICAL mission. pure righteousness has also it limits!
then I come finally with the UGLY :
the entire last 5 minutes
1 Crowe's gang convinces easily 20+ men to shoot bale. after the gang see the angry mob are just gang ho and simply aiming for both bale and crow, the posse gets rid of the mob. oh and what do they do then? yes exactly the same and going complete gang loose on both characters,... a bit weird to me.
2 bale dodged like 10.000 bullets in the final scene and what does he do when he finally accomplishes his mission,... oh he wants a cheesy goodbye and turned his back, uncovered to the side, a few second earlier 8 or so excellent marksmen were going berserk on him.
3 so logical he gets shot and then lord dear lord Russell crow finally redeems himself and wipe out his own gang who have shown the most extreme form of loyalty towards him. a gang which he had robbed ,killed so much, probably had many good adventures, shared both good and hard moments partied etc. a gang which would do anything to free their leader.
for me that was the most f*cked up plot twist I enduranced since "war of the worlds" so pity 10 minutes can cause so so much damage, because I repeat I almost liked everything.
to me the film definitely deserves praise and good critics, but I've notices that the critics are also blind for its flaws, and believe me the flaws aren't just flaws, they are simply big time screw ups
