Crop And Save
I'm a movie freak and decided to fuse all the list that I had to a 1000 list. Subjective, the list is based on movies that impacted my life. Each film chosen meet the criteria of a decent film in general: STORYLINE ( Plot, turning points, twists, Fluidity, believability); CHARACTERS (Memorable, performance, emotions, passion, quest) DIRECTING; LIGHTING; VISUAL EFFECTS; MAKE-UP. Most movies are cerebral, poignant, philosophical, deep and have a story BEHIND the story...
Ps: Movies with endless sequels are not listed since the same idea is explored, unless it's a good one like *Aliens*. e.g. of a bad sequel: Friday the 13th.
Ps2: American movies have a greater influence on the list than foreign movies.
Safe House (2012)
What a waste of talent...
What a waste of talent, especially Denzel with his amazing presence, and Ryan Reynolds that surprised me. That promising actor really took it to a whole new level this time. The rest of the cast consisted of great and amazing actors such as Brendan Gleeson, Sam Shepard, Vera Farmiga, and Robert Patrick, but their roles literally and merely reflected STOPGAPS. No conflicts, no turning points, nothing that justified their motivations. The movie is too predictable, especially with all these thugs chasing our characters and running around.
I you saw the Bourne films, you'll feel that Daniel Espinosa tried, and tried, and tried again in an awful way to copy-paste that movie beautifully done Paul Greengrass. Overusing the shaky-cam technique, the director dizzied us the whole movie with car chases, obscure fighting scenes, exacerbated with deafening shootouts. Furthermore, you'll notice that you will have to force yourself to focus on the characters mouths to understand what they are saying.
The script focuses on an action-thriller-Hollywood movie lacking substance. We could tell that the screenwriter is young in his ink where the story should not dictate the character's motivations, but it's him that should define the story motivated by his quest. While watching the movie, ask yourself what is the quest of Denzel? What is the quest of Vera Farminga? What is the quest of Brendan Gleeson? Where are the conflicts, obstacles?
This movie seriously lacks of respectable dialogues, cinematography, and editing. It's not about the legendary Tobin Frost, but about the legendary Denzel. Don't waste your money. Don't sit up front; you'll be dizzy as hell. Finally, even though, Denzel and Ryan tried their best to save this movie, rent all 3 Jason Bourne movies, and I guaranty you will have a better night.
