Cazuza: O Tempo Não Pára (2004)
just quick notes about his life for those who knows all about his life.
It was very disappointing because I wanted to know about who was Cazuza, why he was writing those songs and saying how bad was his family, his class and the evil Brazil.
All I've discovered was a spoiled child that want to do everything he intend to. There were no repercussion about his real personal life and how he became friend of the Barao Vermelho's members again after their separation and discussions.
After all, its pointless to watch it if you have no idea about who is that guy, that Brazilian singer... The last part of the movie should't longer, it was the most dramatic part of his life and that kind of thing works on movies biographies. Maybe his mother didn't want to watch it or reaffirm the disease his is remembered for.
Onna batoru koppu (1990)
enjoy it will some popcorn and forget about the misspelled English
I've been trying to watch this movie for a long time. Onna Battle Cop was releases only in VHS in Brazil with the USA title Lady Cop. At the local release date, there was a lot of others Japanese tokusatsu series and movies available.
Lady Cop looks like a female Kidou Keiji Jiban, which is a fantasy-techno-non-futurist Robocop. They are all the same thing: someone gets hurt and a ultrascret project saved their lives , turning into a robot. So its time to get a good weapon and... revenge! The camera tricks (like wearing a mask) are really bad for a movie. The special effects are low budget, but its OK. The strange thing is that doesn't look like a Toei's movie, but a Toei's series. There's a lot of theme songs and in the end of the movie appears "The battle is just beginning". Does it supposed to have a Onna Battle Cop 2? My guess is that it supposed to be a pilot for some TV series. Even the end of the movie looks like an TV tokusatsu ending (like Juspion or Kamen Rider Black, posing like great heroes on a black background).
a fun surprise and a typical Brazilian cliché
A poor Brazilian guy (cliché) from the northeast(cliché) comes to southeast (cliché) to get something and be someone(cliché). He is so silly that does dumb things and get in trouble (cliché). Its a great movie (wow, not a cliché).
I'm not complaining. The movie is really really fun. Its well written and you get into the story and the main character. I've just forgot about all the clichés and watched until I discovered why he was arrest (as you know in the first second of the movie).
The only thumb down is about the others characters. Seems like they've put all the efforts on the main and forgot about make them look real or possible.
Encarnação do Demônio (2008)
a fail attempt to horrify
I expect to watch a good terror movie. But all I saw was a good Zé do Caixão movie. After all this years, its the last and third movie, the final end.
It seems it was just made for fans who love to say "hey, I'm a Coffin Joe's fan!!" Also, was a body piercing studio the main sponsor? Because piercing is not that scary, dear "modified-people"...
The dialogs don't make much sense and after all them you'll probably forget about the plot. Well... they make sense... enough for you laugh of the poetry attempt.
Much blood, scars, a cool opening video and insects. I didn't get scared, I get bored.
Se Eu Fosse Você 2 (2009)
a Brazilian soap opera on big screen
The first movie wasn't original at all. Minds changing? "Oh, its a couple now, so its a totally new movie". Yeah, right...
I knew what I was about to see but even knowing it was disappointing. It's exactly the same thing of the first movie: jokes about male looking female, gay gags, sexist jokes... Its as fun as annoying. The main actors are really good and are the reason for I give it 2 stars and not only 1.
But... The most annoying thing is that I came to theater expecting to watch a movie, not a soap opera. This was made by Globo and it was obvious that they would use only their cast and that wasn't a real problem, even with the awful acting of minor characters. The director runned a soap opera on a big screen and there is a plenty of useless scenes just to show "hey, I can make this special effect" but, after all, he was just saying "sorry, thats all I can do". While I was watching some meaningless scene I thought I was about to watch a TV commercial. And, yes, there as a bunch of stupid commercials of a cable TV. I don't know if we Brazilians cant advertise on films (the main character worked in an advertising company, by the way) or if they just don't accept to just show their logo besides have all the characters saying to the audience about how their products are so good and fantastic.
And... the end of the movie... here comes the spoiler...
Its just a typical soap opera ending... The teen daughter was pregnant? So she get married with her ultrarich fiancé. They switched back and everything was as normal as usual... but... she was also pregnant!!! OMG!! So they forget about divorce and get together again. Isn't that beautiful? I must say that at least on the ending the director was clever and shows a fake sequel promo.
