Did what it was supposed to...
I will start off by saying that this movie had it's cool moments. I mean, the actual 'Melancholia' stuff was rather interesting. That and some pretty, in my opinion, accurate portrayals of how society on a more personal level would react to this sort of event made this movie worth sitting through. Once. Ever.
Other than that, this movie was so depressing it was painful. If I didn't know that there was something on a grander scale going on I would not sit through this whole thing. I saw in another review here how you might pick up on the details and appreciate this movie if you yourself have been depressed. I guess you could say I have been depressed at times, but that did not make this movie any better. It didn't use depression here to deal with anyones emotion and as a result, your own emotions suffered too. I literally felt physically ill watching this movie because it dragged up so much depression without offering any emotional development or progress. Everything was just depressing, all the time.
Well, when I think about it, there was some emotional development. People got more depressed over the course of the movie. It went from sad to mind blowingly dull in a short time.
I felt though that this movie conveyed the feeling that Lars von Trier wanted it to. I think it was successful in keeping with his idea. I only think it wasn't a good idea from the beginning. No amount of cool Melancholia stuff could salvage this movie after all that misery.
A Truly Bad Movie
There may be spoilers.
This movie I must say is one of the worst yet, and I usually love all movies. The first Transformers was okay, it wasn't my favorite movie of all time but it was watchable and the effects was great. With the effects still great Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen looses all the "watchableness" of the first one.
It is simply ridiculous, they are taking the slap-stick comedy way to far and the plot holes are so big and many it's starting to look like the back side of the moon. Everything is just stupid.
How did Optimus end up all alone in the woods, what happened to the rest of the Autobots? Why didn't they just wake Optimus up with the All Spark peace Mikeala had in her bag? Why didn't they just shoot the fallen with that huge gun on the battleship? How did Megatron and Starscream travel from earth to Cybertron in one millisecond? Why didn't The Fallen use his teleporting abilities in battle? Why does one of the most powerful Transformers of all transform in to a truck? That's like having a bazooka but using it to make sandwiches. What happened to Starscream? He was the coolest of them all in the first movie, but in this his voice was stupid and he acted like some incompetent baby. How did they get from Smithsomian to some random desert air-field? So Sam died... and got to robot heaven? That is the stupidest thing I have ever seen.
I used to give this 2/10 but I have to change it.
