The Bourne Legacy (2012)
Happy for this Renner surprise!
Unlike some, I do really enjoyed this Renner/Bourne flic!
There are few flaws in this movie, and on the whole it is a delightful romp!
Rachel Weisz as the heroine, Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross, the main character, and Edward Norton as the opposition, is a powerful mix.
Really nice movie for us who love action movies. Enjoyed every minute of it, from the very first scene, to the last!
Amazing action by Rachel, and as good by Jeremy, and the wolves are not bad either!
A fresh approach to action movies, drastically different from the previous Bourne flics, but they are too favourites of mine!
The Catered Affair (1956)
A superb chamber play!
This is a superb chamber play, with just a handful of actors.
Ernest Borgnine, Bette Davies, and the rest of the cast are just magnificent! Seldom I've watched such a 'Kammerspeile' that has me smiling so much as this one, although it is a pretty sad story!
Each time I see this movie, it brings a smile to my face, although it is mostly a sad tale about the realities of life!
A hard to find DVD, by the way, my copy being Spanish; far from my native language!
Nothing more to add!
IMDb needs ten lines, hope this is enough!
If not, I give up!
One of the better modern Wild West movies!
Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, and the rest of the crew makes this a lovely movie, written and directed by the lead actor, Seth MacFarlane,
It does have its weak spots, but overall, an enjoyable movie, crammed with nods to a lot of classic Wild West classics.
Amanda Seyfried, and Neil Patrick Harris do excellently in their supporting roles, but the scene stealer is Giovanni Ribisi, without a doubt!
Liam Neeson, and his wife (in this film) Charlize Theron, domainates most of their scenes, as does the Indians, who kidnaps the lead character.
In short, a delightful surprise!
Mammas pojkar (2012)
Not perfect, but not awful, either!
The story about two brothers, pure metal-heads, and their mother, who happens to be the local priest, is a bit uneven, but there a lot of individual scenes that are great, but the whole is far from perfect.
The boys live in a flat owned by the local outlet store, and when the new owner changes the jobs they are supposed to do in the shop, they walk out and move in with their mom, and things start to become more, and more, chaotic.
A lot of good actors, even internationally acclaimed actors, but a at times feeble script the whole isn't as good as the parts.
Not bad, with quite a few good one-liners, and not a film you'll easily forget, due to its unusual setting, but proves, again, that a weak script will never make a good movie!
A lovely tale!
I did like District 9, but this was one step better! Same team behind it, but this time Dev Patel (his big breakthrough was 'Slumdog Millionaire'), Hugh Jackman (excellent in the 'X-men' series) and Sigourney Weaver (who has been well known since the first 'Alien') were boosting the very capable cast further.
It is a sad, fun, thoughtful, and well-performed, story about a police robot who is given a conscious. It is a great story, there is actually nothing to complain about, just enjoyment from first moment to the last.
The film takes you on a ride, like nothing you've experienced before, from the very first second to the last, with no superfluous stuff, no side stories, just to the point, and immensely well done!
Worst movie I've seen in a long time
Complete crap, with illogical jumps, bad dialog, and sordid story.
Eons away from Arnold's last film, that I've seen, The Last Stand.
Like a really crappy Dolph flick, and then some!
Avoid it at all costs!
Like a bad TV flick, that runs out of logic, dialog, and acting, long before the movie is over. Nothing wrong with the actors, like Sam Worthington, or Arnold, and the other know, and unknown, faces, but my what crap!
Mega Piranha, that I saw a while back was crappy, but a masterpiece compared to this abomination!
First movie in a long while I couldn't see to the end, as I felt totally alienated by all of the guys, and the gals!
The BluRay wasn't a total loss: It might work as an ice-scraper on my windshield!
One of the worst, ever!
I've seen a lot of movies in my day, and have a few thousand on DVD, but this really stinks.
Feeble script, bad acting, and the worst special effects I've seen in a long time! Allan, the hero, of this sordid mess, uses his revolver frequently, and on the average fires 30-40 shots before he needs to reload, amazing! The natives are unbelievably stupid, and the way the heroine is depicted is beyond belief. Supposedly a well-educated archaeologist, she is also an expert of minerals, knowing exactly from where they come, within a mile, or so.
Allan, the hero is also dumb as a door-knob, but his aim is flawless. He also runs without a second thought into the woods pursuing the armed, and extremely dangerous, bad guys (who naturally are black as the night, and wear white bags over their heads). He himself is unarmed, both have no concern about what might be waiting for him in the greenhouse-looking jungle! The story is so dumb, so I will not waste time on that, but compared to this turkey my former worst ever, Mega-Piranhas, is an Oscars-winner! The film must have cost a lot, as there are hundreds of extras, and a lot of sets, although very crappy, most of them.
The lead actors are well-known, and sometimes superb, but in this movie they stink, like the rest!
A slow take on dreams and reality
This is not a film for those who want speedy action, but the reverse. This odd movie plays entirely by its own rules, and it is not a masterpiece, but a really good try!
John Goodman, John Malkovitch, and Dena Delaney, are the pro stars in this little film about life, and dreams, while the younger kids (Jacob Zachar, and Skipp Sudduth in particular) do a great job here, too.
Slowly goes the story forward, in some ways reminding me of Kurosawa's movies about odd people, like his Dodeskaden.
A great, fresh, experience this film was, and I can't for my life understand why it has got such a low point as 5.0!
The Bill Collector (2010)
A pearl in this hard world of today
I didn't expect anything about this film, having a 3.2/10, but what a gem!
Haven't cried while watching a movie for a long time, but this really gripped me, totally. After reading about some of the actors, who do work trying to help the poor and homeless, I think it is a really bad choice to use Trejo, wielding two guns, on the cover of the DVD/BluRay, as this is the most heartwarming movie I've seen in ages.
The scene where Lorenzo (Gary Moore) dreams about his death is the only really bad scene (superfluous, totally superfluous), but the rest is really, really, good, bar a goof, or two.
The actors, and the direction, is just superb, and I have nothing to complain about the supporting cast, cinematography, or the lighting. In short a superb movie, but sadly, with the wrong sales promotion!
In many ways this movie reminds me of the Danish movie "Blinkende lygter", one of my favourite movies, and that's praise indeed!
A superb movie the 'Bill Collector' is, far better than the 'Hobbit', which we saw recently! And I really liked that movie, but didn't loved it like this one!
A poor Indiana Jones copy!
Seldom have I seen a TV movie that is so uneven, with excellent cinematography, beautiful cast (yes really impressive - and not that badly acted, either), but so very badly directed: For instance, after having just barely survived walking through a desert, and over a mountain range, our heroes, and the comic relief, tell us that they are close to dying from heat and thirst, and yet not a drop of sweat, not even a hint of sweat on their shirts, and their hair is well brushed all the time, well manicured, and we see a perfect mascara on the leading lady's face, and their clothes are as pristine as if they just had been returned from the cleaners.
Later in the story the heroine almost slips into a crevasse, getting a grip on the edge at the very last moment. Depending on the camera angle, from above, or from below, her hair color varies - she's normally a brown-haired beauty, but the stand-in is totally black-haired (most likely a wig), and might well be a man! Again, bad directing is to blame! John P. Tarver partaking this fiasco is a sad waste of cinematographic talent, I hope he has found better scripts, and better directors, to tune his talent on!
The CGI stinks, ugh, really bad! The fuzzy scorpions we see crawling on the walls wouldn't scare a 5 year old! And the car chases are very mediocre, indeed!
So, while the basics isn't that bad (sound, & cinematography, acting & stunts), the scriptwriting, and the directing, are really as they were done by Ed Wood, on a bad day!
A very far cry from Indiana Jones, and yet this TV mini-series evidently use the exactly same typeface, as Indiana Jones, and it is colored in exactly the same way - is that really allowed?!
