A well Fit and Entertaining Love Comedy
As a general feeling after the film, i was pleased; the movie was good, entertaining and leave you with a nice feeling after all. As a love comedy it is more well adjusted to women, but for me as a man and after i have hated a lot of this type of films, this was really good. Hugh Grant is an expert in this type of films (i can't count how many beautiful and famous actress he has kissed already: Renne Zellweger, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Jeann Triplehorn among others); so his acting is quite well fitted and with style, his pop dancing and his show is really funny!; Drew Barrymore is beautiful ad his acting is deeply lovely, i am simply in love with Drew, she has the most beautiful face in Hollywood!, and her acting in this movie show her beauty, natural as she is. The Cora Corman character is great!, as a Shakira/Christina comic symbiosis is great!. A movie definitely to enjoy, laugh and stay with a pleasant smile after a while.
ABOUT THE MOVIE: Hugh Grant is Alex fletcher, a previous pop star who was part of an 80's famous band called Pop!, this band broke up and his career declined, while the other star of the group was successful as single. Hugh live only by giving small shows with the help of Chris Riley, his friend and manager (Brad Garret), Alex suddenly find an opportunity for compose a song to the popular pop singer Cora Corman (Haley Bennet), but he has only one week for the job. He met in the way Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore), a retired Literary student who took care of Alex's plants, Alex see in Sophie special abilities in composing songs, so he convince her to help him in his challenge, they two start to show feelings for each other, while making this song, some great and funny episodes evolve trough the movie, where Sophie's sister Rhonda (Kristen Johnston) an ex Pop! fan, and Sophie's previous university teacher Sloan Cates (Campbell Scot) appear.
7/10! a good love comedy!
An Amazing Jouney Near Death!
I really loved this movie, i started watching this film expecting a common movie, but this film captivated me totally!, it was so touching that i couldn't believe the excellent movie i was watching!. I love the Stephen King type films and this was like one of them to me, the story is intelligent and well told, this film moves at the right pace until the end, to finally touch your heart and soul!; is remarkable how this story combines the drama with the tension of some scary scenes, specially the night scenes at the house. After i saw the movie, i could'n believe that this movie where directed by Tom Shadyac, yes! Tom Shadyac, the one responsible for making me laugh so hard with Jim Carrey's role in Ace Ventura, Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty!; i now think that besides funny movies, Tom likes also the movies in where a doctor is the star, like Patch Adams, another beautiful film of Shadyac. I have read some critics about the film and the overall IMDb rating, i can't believe this 5.7! is too low for me, but well i felt this movie as a 10 star one! and i keep to that!
ABOUT THE FILM: Kevin Costner is here Dr. Joe Darrow a great doctor that shares the profession with his wife Emily (Sussana Thompson), his wife decides to help some people in Venezuela, but suddenly she had an accident on a bus who felled to a river and her body was never found; Joe start to face his life without his wife, and he began to see Emily's patients, most of them were child with terminal cancer. Some of this child where near death because of their disease and were trying to give to Joe a message from his wife, after they saw her in the near death experiences. Joe tries by all means to find what his wife is trying to tell and he need to find the meaning of a strange symbol that the boys draw after this experiences "near the light at the tunnel". In this events Joe finds a lot of questions about everything that is happening in his life, and if the things he see are real or just something produced by his mind.
A masterpiece of Shadyac! Two Thumbs up!, worth to collect! 10/10!
The Number 23 (2007)
Good 23rd work of Schumacher!
I'm writing this comment still thinking in that number, is amazing how you can put things together that make seem the number 23 appear!. Well i hope the movie effect don't last too much, but i can write some things about this movie. First, it was a good movie for me, i expected more of it, but was good for me; i has always loved how Schumacher brings a totally well adjusted atmosphere to the movies; the colors, the places, the darkness and all is great, so the movie at some parts was really scary and spooky, that's Shumacher signature, like 8mm and Batman Forver; the script was original for a thriller, that's good specially when you are a movie fan and the thriller movies start to look all like the same, this paranoia involved about a number is absolutely great obtained. When the movie started and i saw Jim Carrey, it was difficult for me not seeing him as a funny role, but while the movie evolves, he perform a really good acting that erased me the funny Jim Carrey that i'm used too, that was great! The NED dog was a good reference to The Omen (1976) that makes this movie scary at times. I also found a good message after the movie, but i left that to you because this movie is really worth to not be spoiled in a comment. The only thing that i didn't liked of the film was that i expected a more scary and thrilling movie, but that is far from a critic to the movie, is just a personal feeling.
ABOUT THE FILM: Jim Carrey is Walter Sparrow, a common man who work in an animal control department, suddenly his girlfriend Agatha (Virginia Madsen) finds a book on an old library, the book name was "The Number 23", she decide to give the book to Walter as a gift.

Walter, while reading the book start to find that this number is also appearing in all his life. Robin Sparrow (Logan Lerman), Walter's son, start to live his father's obsession; and Isaac French (Danny Huston), a psychologist tries to help Walter with this obsession.
One of the Greatest Comedies!
This great comedy made me laugh a lot; it is really one of the best comedies that i have seen sort far; Bobby and Peter Farrelly definitely are masters in this genre, that maybe is one of the more hard to achieve. I think that pulling tears from the public is hard, but pulling laughs from the audience is as hard or harder than that!, this movie did it masterfully. I really was amazed of how Bill Murray as Ernie McCracken could perform such a hateful character, he does, and the impression that i felt was totally of hate for McCracke, great for Murray's performance!; the music is simply spectacular, the song played by Blues Traveler is great!, this movie also have a soundtrack worth to buy; some Urge Overkill song is heard in the movie too. But the thing that finally i liked most was that this movie, being a comedy, give a good lesson for life, for honesty and care for the others; you have to see the movie to the end to understand this!. Some scenes that i loved where the bully milking, the strip dancing of Ishmael, the hand on breast, etc, I laughed in this movie, and when i think about it some smiles come again.
ABOUT THE MOVIE: Woody Harrelson is Roy Munson a great bowler trained by his dad since he was a child and who was the Nevada state champion of 1979 beating the hateful Ernie McCracken (Bill Murray), after this in some incidents with bets with some bad guys Munson lose his right hand, and his career was spoiled, he isolates and start to drink, wasting his life. 17 years after that, he mets an Amish man, Ishmael Borg (Randy Quaid) who show a special talent for bowling, he tries to convince him to compete, but for his traditions he prefer to stay at home. Munson see in Ishmael a chance to go back to success and try by all means to convince him to compete. They start to live trough some great and funny situations while trying to earn some money, in their way the met the beautiful Claudia (Vanessa Angel), whose love for money make her join to the party and share with Roy and Ishmael some funny moments while they want to get to the Bowling 1 million dollar Championship.
Great, totally great funny movie! 8/10!
The Negotiator (1998)
Thrilling Action and non Peacefully Negotiation!
When i think about the word negotiation, the first thing i think is business, second i think of a kidnapping payment and third and last i think about is the hostage situation. This film is about the last of the three; the hostage situations are put on screen one more time in a splendid way on this film, the movie isn't peaceful at all, it shows very hard and critic hostage situations, with a lot of gunshots and action; this is good, because for the ones that love action films with really good action shots and based on intelligent scripts, this is one of the films to watch. The script is deep and makes the movie strong on its basis, the directing and cinematography of the film is great, with some Die Hard style, the acting roles are performed great by Jackson and Spacey. This movie took me, grabbed me to finally spend one of the most pleasant 1 and 1/2 hour of my weekend.
ABOUT THE FILM: Samuel L. Jackson is here Ltt. Danny Roman, a police officer expert handling hostage situations, and negotiation with criminals. When Danny's partner Nathan (Paul Guilfoyle) was killed in some confuse events, Danny is taken suspect and some false evidence was set in his house to make him look guilty. Danny heard that Nathan knew something about some corruption on the Internal Affair division of the Police, so Danny suspected of them as the responsible of Nathan's death. When no hope was there for Danny, he decides to take as hostage the Internal Affair offices with some of the people who work there, including Insp. Niebaum (J.T. Walsh), the one that Danny tough as mostly implied in the events. With a lot of support of his wife Karen (Regina Taylor) during this hard events, Danny manages to bring an external negotiator, Lt Chris Sabian (Kevin Spacey), that's someone far from his division in order to try to probe his innocence. In this hostage situation, a lot of interest takes place, the same partners of Danny try to put an end to this by all means. Some of Danny's partners are: Cmdr Adam Beck (David Morse), Cmdr Grant Frost (Ron Rifkin) and Chief Al Travis (John Spencer). The kidnapped involved in the building besides Niebaum are Niebaum's secretary Maggie (Siobhan Fallon) and Rudy Timmons (Paul Giamatti).
8/10! great film of F. Gary Gray
Great Graphics and Animation!
I really had a pleasant time watching this movie: the graphics and animation were great!, and the story is totally captivating as a superhero tale. The fight scenes are absolutely well obtained and i loved the facial expression of the human; they were quite original, the girls (April and Karai) looked beautiful; it's like a combination between anime faces and traditional cartoon characters!. The only thing that a didn't like of the movie was the fact that the thirteen monsters capture is shown too confusing, i would have prefer that they took more time on each monster so i could have seen more every one, its strength, behavior, powers and weak points, as on any villain that you usually see in comics. But besides that this is a good animated film. This fourth movie of the teenage mutant ninja turtles is maybe the best of all, totally computer animated but excellent in its script
ABOUT THE MOVIE: The story is about the ultimate enemy of this mutant turtles, who started 3000 years ago, where an extremely trained army of soldiers witnessed an alignment of starts that opened a gate to other dimension; this gate gave immortality to the leader of the army and also released thirteen immortal monsters that started to make some damages since that time, and turned to stone the rest of the great army. In the present times, the group of turtles was somewhat split, with Leonardo training in Southamerica, Raphael being a new type of hero as the night watcher, Michaellangelo working as party clown with a big turtle mask and Donatello being a 24 hour online assistant of some software company. Immediately when Leonardo returned from training and while he was having some differences with his brother Raphael, some monsters started to appear in town; while fighting these monsters they also met a group of expert ninjas leaded by Karai, who followed orders from a powerful and wealthy man, Max Winters. April O'Neal as archaeologist and well trained in martial arts, and her friend Casey Jones helped the turtles in these weird challenge as the ancient army of stone was returning also to live.
7/10! Good film and nice work of Kevin Munroe.
State of Grace (1990)
Great and Realistic Mafia Movie!
In this great mafia movie, i was really impressed with the realism of the scenes, is well shown in the movie all the previous research about the lives, behaviors and methods of some gangs in the U.S.; while i was watching the film i felt like watching real crime scenes in New York! that was great!. Gary Oldman is definitely a great actor for this type of characters; he was the one i liked most; good friend, good and risky mafia boy and good brother, and with some alcohol problems, he performed this character with perfect domination of the role. Sean Penn was great and he feels totally as one of the people of the real Irish mafia!; dark scenes, a great casting and realism is what this good movie have to offer. I didn't like of the film, that sometimes it cuts from scene to scene quickly showing different parts of the whole story that for a good part of the film you can't understand, this spaces are somewhat long and i got bored like at the middle of the film. But fortunately the movie restore it's pace and conclude in a excellent and thrilling way.
ABOUT THE FILM: Sean Penn is Terry Noonan a guy involved with some obscure business and people who after an incident with drugs, returns to New York where he join his old gang of Irish in New York after ten years, he met with his old great friend Jackie Flannery (Gary Oldman) and his ex girlfriend Kathleen Flannery (Robin Wright), the Flannery brothers are a Irish family that dominate the mafia business in the area and are leaded by Frankie Flannery (Ed Harris). When Terry join the group, he meet some other old friends like Stevie McGuire (John C. Reilly), and other important bosses of the mafia and extortion like Borelli (Joe Viterelli), dark interest start to rise in the gangs, where Terry plays an important role, Terry's interest start to be uncovered trough the film showing incredible events that make the film a great one. John Turturro as Nick plays also a great role.
7/10! for this good movie directed by Phil Joanou.
Deja Vu (2006)
Another Masterpiece of Tony Scott
Tony Scott films are really amazing pieces of art!, since Top Gun, The Last Boy Scout (with Willis), Crimson Tide (with Denzel), The Fan (with De Niro), Enemy of the State (incredible movie with Smith),Spy Game (with Redford and Pitt) to Man on Fire (the best of all!). With this movie, the third of his saga starred with Denzel, i can say that Scott is definitely an auteur, a director with a special talent and with his signature on his great quality films. The fiction and police subjects of this movie are just great; Denzel, as always complement a great directing and a good script with an extraordinary and realistic acting, he shows again why is one of the best actors of the decade!. The plot of the movie is amazing; how you can use the visualizing of the past to solve crimes; it resembles in some way, the Spielberg film Minority Report, but this one is much better. The shots, the action scenes, the feeling of tension is a delight for those who like intelligent films where you have to think a lot to understand fully the story, i personally love this type of films!. Like Tony said: with Malcom X, Jesus Christ and Jim Morrison, how can this movie be bad!
ABOUT THE MOVIE: This is the story of agent Doug Carlin (Denzel Washington) who was assigned to the investigation of a Ferry bombing in New Orleans where 563 people died; in this investigation he finds a woman corpse, this woman called Claire Kuchever (Paula Patton), will surely give a lot of clues to find the responsible for this terrorist attack, when she was actually found dead and burned in the river before the explosion had even occurred. Some special agents, including Agent Pryzwarra (Val Kilmer) and Jack McCready (Bruce Greenwood) invite Carlin to use a special and new tool to find the responsible, this tool is some kind of visor that put on video the events held 4 days ago, is like viewing the past and to possibly move trough it like navigating. Denzel, impressed with this technological aid, start to use it in order to find this terrible terrorist and while doing this, he get somehow involved and touched by Claire's last moments of her life.
9/10! two thumbs up for Tony Scott, and one movie to add to this incredible Scott collection of action masterpieces.
Wild Hogs (2007)
One of the Funniest Films I Have Seen
I really spend a great time watching this film. I'm not a big fan of comedies; instead i mostly rate comedies low, they have to be very good, so i rate them above 6; what need a comedy for me?, well to pull out of me some real laughs, not only the tiny the Ja,...,Ja, but the whole laugh from the bottom of your chest, the real JAJAJAJAJA!!!, and this movie really did; with a very intelligent type of humor i had a pleasant surprise and a great time in the theater, some great scenes as the lake swimming, the bull slapping, the fire on camping, etc, etc.. The characters where, great, i liked Dudley, simply excellent, timid, calmed but who enjoy friendship as none; Bobby, was real fun, Martin Lawrence comic acting is just perfectly adjusted for this guy, who isn't successful, but is a good husband and friend. Tim Allen acting as Doug the dentist is great!, he is afraid of living, but finally he enjoy at his best. And finally, John Travolta acting, he was the one i liked less, but he was good although as the "bad influence" between them. I loved the beauty and good acting of Marisa Tomei as Maggi!.
ABOUTH THE MOVIE: The film is about four friends in their middle age: Doug, Woody, Bobby and Dudley, who like to spend some time riding bikes as the Wild Hogs, Doug (Tim Allen) is a dentist with a common family, Woody (John Travolta) is a divorced, broke businessman and liar, who was the one that influenced the others, Bobby (Martin Lawrence) was a good husband that didn't worked and whose wife was like a tiger in a cell; finally Dudley (William H. Macy) a computer programmer who was single and wanted by all means to impress girls, but he was rather timid. The four friends decide to take a ride trough the U.S. roads and spend a good time, the ride is fine until they meet another bike riders called themselves, Del Fuegos leaded by Jack (Ray Liotta). These guys where really tough, and problems really start after meeting them. In the way they also visit the lovely and little town of Madrid, where they meet Maggie (Marisa Tornei).
8/10! Is a good work of Walt Becker really worth to watch!
Murder by Numbers (2002)
The Perfect Murder
I was amazed after viewing this good film, is amazing how the two boys Richard and Justin resembles their evil personalities as two young guys who wanted to coldly commit the perfect crime; and i was even more impressed after I saw the case upon this story was based; the Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb crime of Bobby Franks; is absolutely true that this kind of criminal planning minds can coexist with us, as Leopold and Loeb they can still hide in the higher classes of our society, even in the religious society.
The film as a whole is great; as a thriller it kept me tied to the movie all the time, wondering what would happen next, the intrigue and mystery behind the murder keeps going; as you see how the perfect murder can be so coldly planned and perform; a total challenge for the cops and for the actors; Ryan Gosling as Richard shows why he's a great actor, performing the most difficult character of the film; indeed i think that he's on or two years short to obtaining an Oscar. I liked but not that much, the performance of Michael Pitt, and the Sandra Bullock performance was to me pretty normal, she was the hook for the promotion of the movie, but as a cop she looked extremely naive. The camera and cinematography of the movie is pretty well obtained and captivates the audience as well.
ABOUT THE MOVIE: Ryan Gosling plays here Richard Haywood, a high class student, popular, intelligent and manipulative friend of Michael Pitt (Justin Pendleton), also high class brilliant student; they are the main suspects of a perfect planned crime of a girl; the case was followed by agent Cassie (Sandra Bullock) a police officer with some obscure past that tries with her partner Sam (Ben Chaplin) by every mean, to uncover this murder. They all get involve in a CSI type of investigation, with great challenges as cops and in somewhat cat - mouse play where the mouse is extremely clever and loves to play.
Very good work of Barbet Schroeder, i will expect for his next movie! and Barbet, please keep working as director, i saw your acting at Paris Je t'Aime and wasn't that good.
8/10! without any doubt (i see a little underrated this film, that's a shame, i liked it a lot)
