Seven Psychopaths (2012)
what seemed to be a great scenario
This movie started great; surprisingly violent with moments of hilarious accidents and coincidences. From the beginning, you can see that you're watching what seemed like a clever witty scenario with a well- written characters and decent performances from Collin Farrel and Sam Rockwell, which gave a great supporting role as the wacky Billy Bickle, and deserved a recognition. But the movie went through periods of boring meaningless dialogues and events (almost half of the movie dedicated to the pursuit of a helpless dog belonged to a crime boss who appeared ruthless but when his dog's taken, he's transformed into a babbling crying boy), and when we reach the end, we lose touch with the story and wonders, "what is going on? what happened to the promising plot and outset?". When you reach the end, you may tell yourself that the director intended the movie to come out like this, but did he or he just let things flow as they are?? i can't tell for sure but Director Martin McDonagh tried to add his own different vision of psychopaths which is the main theme of the movie (it was stated by one of the movie characters that he doesn't want to see the regular Hollywood scumbag murderous psychopaths, instead, he wants a psychopathic movie about love and peace!!) and thus the characters came out comical pale version of the "psychopaths" who lacked the solid motive behind their actions through the entire movie which made the output void and pointless.
Django Unchained (2012)
Tarantino misfires so bad
I had high hopes for this movie as the best of 2012, but Tarantino went too far in paying homage for his favorite genre "Spaghetti Western" which was invented by Sergio Leone, to the extent that the movie emerged too cheap and slow-paced. If U haven't seen this genre before, you'll say it's a very good movie, but for me, nothing new here. Nothing of great significance here except the music and a handful of scenes.As for the scenario, it was a shallow one, not like what i expected from Tarantino as he always pushed the envelope too far in his perspective regarding the themes he presents in his movies (e.g. Inglourious Basterds) and which is a characteristic of QT that made him distinctive, and sure not an Oscar-worth-nomination scenario. As for Performances (which was the second element that disappointed me), no one gave a captivating performance except, and to my surprise, Samuel L. Jackson, which did a fine supporting role deserves recognition, Jamie Foxx wasn't the suitable lead, he didn't give a performance to engage the viewer with his story as the black hero trying to free himself and his wife from slavery; Waltz gave a weaker performance that his previous effort in Inglourious Basterds, DiCaprio did a good job but not what i expected from what i saw in the trailers due to his one dimensional character, the only role that took my attention was Samuel L. Jackson as Steven the Butler. Tarantino made an appearance which is the worst I've ever seen. What i said earlier concerning the scenario, can be said for direction; the movie lacked Tarantino's special view in direction which we usually see in his movies, even the camera work wasn't that special. But to be fair, this is the first time to be disappointed by a Tarantino movie, but as they say " a horse may stumble."
