Surprisingly not as bad as the critics tolds us back in the 80's
Today I watched this movie for the very first time. Back in the 80's this movie never made it to my home town, I guess because of the poor critics, and that was a shame because i really wanted to watch it, I had such a big crush on Brooke Shields during the early 80's. I knew that the movie was probably just a lame excuse to expose her sex appeal and popularity, and there were probably little to none substance in the movie it self. After reading the reviews I thought that this was probably a horrible fiasco of a movie I still wanted to watch it, but like i said I was never able until today. What a surprise... the movie is indeed not a big deal at all, but by far boring, it was rather entertaining, I mean not every piece of cinema has to be a master piece, but as long it is entertaining it will be alright, and this one it is alright. The rating is 4 out of 10, my self out of watching it and enjoying it and being able to watch again young Brooke in her prime it was worth it. I would give it a 5 out of 10.
Around the World in 80 Days (1989)
Very good adaptation, too bad the DVD is not worth it
Very enjoyable adaptation of the Jules Verne Novel.
Around the world in 80 days. Pierce Brosnan is fantastic in his role of the inventor and scientist Phileas Fogg. The cast is superb and the photography fantastic. Far better production that the new adaptation with Jacky Chan on it. Unfortunaly when finally after a very long wait the DVD came up, what a disappointment, the DVD simply sucks, no production notes, or special features or anything at all, besides, the quality of the image is at the very least 1/10. The poorest I've ever seen in a long time. I mean if you are going to produce something, put a little heart on it. I hope we can very soon enjoy this mini series in its complete extend, with a special edition DVD.
O Que É Isso, Companheiro? (1997)
OH Brazil, Brazil, Great Cinema
One more time I turn off my DVD player, satisfied, with a very good production, I've never been left disappointed when I pick a Brazilian film to watch, I'm also an enthusiastic of Brazilian soap-opera, I'm telling you that is the best of the world, may look the traditional American soap opera like trash, not to mention that the soap-opera from Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina, etc is in my opinion pure garbage. So getting' back to this movie, I don't know what to tell you, I'm not very good describing movies, I left that for Ebert and Roeper, just trust me and watch the movie, it worth it. Great acting, great photography, besides, all the beautiful landscape from Brazil, do your self a favor and don't miss it, I recommend as well, Central Do Brazil, and Tieta Do Agreste
Plata quemada (2000)
I was expecting more a lot more...
I am an enthusiastic of foreign cinema, somebody told me look over southamerica cinema, since Mexican movie-making has gone since time ago down the drain, I was trying to find masterpieces out of Spain, France and Asia. OK, I started my search with Brasil, and I'm tellin' you I wasn't disappointed at all, I was lucky to find very good movies like Tieta do Agreste, Four Days in September, and Central Do Brasil, I switched to Argentina by advice of few friends, I started with this movie,(Burnt Money) supposedly historical what I found was, a melodrama, some good acting, but mostly a lot of bad acting, the set up of the period was well done, but somehow the whole movie was centered in the period or in the robbery, instead I attended to a disgustin' gay melodrama. I have nothing against homosexuallity, but this movie should have been place in a different category. I found it repulsive, I'm gonna still try to find something better among the argentina cinema, hopefully something like Brasil has to offer. If you want my advice, OK, watch any Brazilian movies, you won't be disappointed, about argentina, I don't know yet, I can only tell you, stay away from "Burnt money", unless you are into gay films of course.
Paper Moon (1973)
This is what I call a Classic!!
Perfect prototype of a family classic, this movie is as close to perfection as it can gets, brilliant performance of Ryan and Tatum O'neall, Madeline Kahn, Great Direction, great photography. It was nominated just for 4 oscars and won just one. Very underrated but since the dvd was just released, I'm sure that as soon as people start watching this movie this rating is gonna go up undoubtely. As far as my opinion concerns, I give this movie a full 10 out of 10. Thanks Bogdanovitch, this is your master piece. I highly recommend to by the DVD it's wonderful filled with comments, extras, and hilarious out-takes, worth to watch.
The Best epic movie ever
This movie (I'm talking about the three installments) is extraordinary, the best epic movie ever. It's true, JR Tolkien imagination is fantastic, a master piece, but just consider how many masterpieces books have been turned in a despicable pile of trash when a director or a cast or the studio didn't know what they were doing, I bet this same story could have been a terrible disappointment with another director,or another cast. Everything in this movie went perfect. And yes people read a lot Tolkien now, but is because of this movie, 85 to 90 % of the people who said yes, this movie is good but tolkien is a genius, never picked up a tolkien book before this movie. Well the books are great but this whole cinema masterpiece is just as good as tolkien's work, in my opinion, this movie deserves a 9.9 out of 10 and that is just because I don't believe any movie deserves a 10 out of 10.
Congratulations to peter jackson and all the cast, one more thing, how can movies like "a beautiful mind" and "chicago" win the oscar in 2001 and 2002 and not this great movie. I think maybe they had to wait to the last installment to give the oscar to it, otherwise they had to give the oscar to this movie three times in a row, one for every part, and that would have been unfair (the first movie winner of the oscar three times). This is not only the best production in moviemaking in a while, I'm sure it will remain in that status for various decades.
The Ninth Gate (1999)
very disturbing film, great performance from johnny depp, and also frank langella, the whole set up was great and good direction from the oscar winner director from the pianist roman polanski. A nice thriller that did not use special effects or sound to scare you, 8 out of 10.
The most amazing movie I've seen.
Spectacular. This is the most important movie of the 21st century, this is just a peek of how movies are gonna be made in this new century. Is good taking a break from the midiocre hollywood made films and watch this wonderful adventure. If the books are pure magic, the movie really is fantastic. 10.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
It's pure magic
I like the new version of the movie,with enhanced special effects, and remastered images. But still the old film is my favorite, I like the message that gives the movie at the end, it is about hope and faith, and that is why the guns and the shotguns are present, that means that you can triumph against evil, and tiryny with hope,and that the miracles do exist.
The Mummy (1999)
stunning special effects
Most of the people would think that nothing is as good as it was in the past, and that the remakes ain't worth enough. I love classics too, but it is just that you can not compare classics movies like Boris Karloff's "The Mummy" with this new version. It looks at times that even the genre is completely different, the first one was an scary movie, this one is an adventure almost comedy movie. Both are rather good in their respective genre, but this new version I think is a lot richer with special effects and humor and a lot of extras that the first one didn't have. I enjoyed both, but I have to say I like the new version very much, it was a lot of fun indeed.
