More than a lot : the dumbest & most soporific movie in ages ! (web)
I know that Jennifer likes to do unusual movies but this one is her worst choice ever ! My Five First Minutes rule has been right : here, you understand nothing, the place, the characters and you are greatly annoyed by this spoiled brat with the falcon ! So the entire movie is like this : scenes drags painfully to say little, nothing is explained or makes sense, the characters are empty or boring, those cold winter locations are everything but poetic (prefer « Fargo »), Murphy brings his usual lack of charisma, the editing is salvaged by stupid flashbacks, proof that this writer/director can't tell a story ! For one movie that was about hope in distress, my watching was very painful, so much i have to fast forward it with absolutely no surprises, no emotion ! Just awful !

I know that the 2 movies have more differences than similarities but at the end, the thematic is about the same : a fresh, subversive look about teachers ! Sure, the country are different, the period are different but this kind of movies that focus on teachers and not students, that say that official courses are not suited to needs are really few
Here the subject is dressed in a comedy with some excellent gags and other less funny.. The movie drags a bit and sometimes it's too much to be believable but it has the strong point to be French : if you wonder how was my country, this movie can help you : you can see that public administration has no money in spite of all our taxes : American high schools looks always shining, brand new, here the classroom looks 20 years old ! Then, you can discover that French aren't not prudish as they can get nude naturally ! A the end, this movie is interesting because of its chemistry with those leading teachers : they are engaging and this cast has proved their talent in the later years !
This episode is one of the best of Megan : she treks the whole country from north to south and even beyond to Azores islands. During this hour, we have a great slice of this unknown country compared to the Spanish neighbor. This seems to be a pastoral, pious country. It's great to see Megan trying everything, especially the bull play
Lisbon looks like the twin sister of San Francisco with the same bridge, hills and cable car ! Azores are magical with their dolphins and whales that you can come close on a motor boat ! I'm amazed so the miles Megan can walk for this show and now i understand why she is always motivated to taste food and drinks !
A View to a Kill (1985)
A « Vieux » to kill (tv)
Now that i'm motivated to watch the Moore's movies, i catch that he has done 7 Bond, so with this one i have still 3 to watch and this one is the last he has done. Honestly, he shows his age and this action franchise turns now into a dandy agenda : Paris, San Francisco, horses running, country life in a palace, country life in a Victorian mansion and a lot of showers (3 or 4 !). What's funny with this period is that the effects are totally old school : miniatures, dummy, stunts-men, you can always tell the making. The story is the expected world threat by a mad billionaire (very close to the movie Superman also) but unlike others episodes, this one has maybe the best cast ever : Walken is excellent, Jones is as good as Famke Jansen, and cool MacNee is wonderful and funny in a ungrateful part ! God bless his soul and saves the queen!

Well, Latin America isn't my cup of coffee (pun intended): i have never pinpointed the exact reason of my disliking but Mayas, Aztecs mixed with Spanish mixed with Christianity mixed with jungles don't fit with my hobbies. Thus as i know i would never go there, i should thank Megan to travel those countries for me. This episode is the twin companion of the episode about pirates and galleons because it's additional footages of the same locations. There, Megan lives more interesting experiences : buying a Equador-Panama hat, trying a bullet proof jacket, visiting police museum, getting lost in tiny islands or deep forests to visit an ancient city or even assisting a coke producer!
Christmas with the Kranks (2004)
The book should be more fun (dvd)
As it's an adaptation of a bestseller author, i suppose the book is well written and maybe more delivered that this movie. It's not that this movie is awful because it has some great original ideas but the comedy is just too heavy and badly played ! As the cast is all-star and with Colombus involvement, i suppose that the culprit should be the director ! Anyway, the story is interesting as it takes a bloody bit from holy X-mas and saints neighbors ! In fact, this Holiday is just a big commercial day and community means the erasing of individual liberty ! In addition, the production with cozy houses, great wardrobes and shining illuminations make the movie one of the most beautiful for this holiday !
Not a treasure (web)
Usually, Megan's episodes are entertaining, useful but this time, this pirates trail is rather dull : unlike other places, the sight are limited and repetitive: green jungle, sea, old Latin churches and ruins of fortified cities
The only interesting facts were the map of the Caribbean sea because it really helps to locate all the islands and countries and the stories of past legends, especially the hardboiled one who was one-eye and with a wooden leg. Maybe the funniest moment is her visit to Jamaica : the island, town, buildings are totally derelict, in decay as if a war has just ended ... and then, the population looks very bizarre: dressed a lot in sportswear but with no dynamism, always sit, like totally stoned. Sure when she lands in Florida, it seems like paradise!
Not really (dvd)
This movie isn't really a stinker but i get bored very quickly : first, I have never liked Travolta as an actor and this movie doesn't change my opinion. Next, the story lacks focus and pace: Travolta writes 2 stories at the same time, it's a news movie, a love movie, nearly a judicial movie and maybe a comedy
It's really too much for a poor actor like Travolta and the aerobic study isn't really interesting : sure it says it's a bit silly as ordinary people doesn't really need to train like professionals but the members are too crazy
What's left is a good Jamie Lee who really gave all her sweat for this part, the feel of the 80s with the first computer and really great cars and fashion
Lonely Planet: Denmark and Sweden (2006)
For me, there is no doubt that Megan is the best ever world traveler : she is cool with every one and courageous and talented to do anything.
Here, it's funny because she travels in a country that I visited : thus she gives me great ideas for my future trips in Stockholm (the igloo bar, the prison hotel) and it's fun to see how she did places i knew: she has an amazing lunch in the city hall, she experimented the bridge between Danemark and Sweden in a car instead of my usual train ride, ... She acts also like a cute daughter when she met her father's idol, Borg, now a businessman. She also dealt with Swedish icons like Abba and saunas, which are things left to do for me...
I know his parents : « frantic » and « XIII » (tv)
I decided to watch this movie because it had Liam, the Harrison ford of the second millennium, the cute Kruger and a change of locations with Berlin. In addition, the story sounded like a mystery. Now, the result is average, not totally awful but not worthy of a second watch. I have never went there and maybe it's due to winter time but this Berlin looks a cold, industrial city that surely don't have the beauty of Paris or London
Then, i didn't understand why Kruger doesn't play a German girl ?? About the plot, it's a sort of reboot of « frantic » : same professor, same hunt in a foreign country, same companies game, same help from a young woman, same little flat
Maybe the difference is the twist but there, there is a lot of inspiration from « XIII ». The action sequences are maybe well orchestrated but they are totally unbelievable, especially the car chase ! At the end, my last question is why it's a french movie when everything and everyone aren't not french ???
