MasterChef Australia (2009)
MasterChef Australia - an evaluation
Good day! Are there negative points? Yes. Are there positive points? Lots and lots and lots. So lets start with the positives. This is so much more than a cooking show. MCAU is a reality TV show where you meet a lot of nice and interesting people. You get to know them and you get to like them. You learn about professional cooking, you get to meet many professional chefs (from Australia) and you see many different and interesting locations (like the Shangri-La hotel in Syndey, just to name one). This show is amazing. Of course this is partly because there is a huge budget behind it. But also, the three moderators are fantastic and very funny as well. To my mind, this is the best that TV entertainment can offer. Now, to be fair, lets take a short look at the negative side. This show is about competition, and competition alone. It shows us how society works. It is all about winning. Only the best get a chance. Also, sometimes you get that bitter taste of faked emotions from the contestants and dishonesty from the producers, the TV company. Don't think about that and you will surely enjoy MasterChef Australia.
Better than I thought....much better
I read a lot of negative comments about this movie. Bad acting, bad plot, bad SFX, bad...you name it. However, I disagree. I loved this movie and rated it 9/10. I didn't see any really bad acting except that nerd from the satellite station who was also a very unpleasant character. This is Hollywood, this is fiction, so forget about plausibility. This movie was pure fun to watch and the plot was sufficiently coherent to me. And Rihanna looked GOOD in it, you have to admit it! Very cool shots of the warships, too. And when they literally came out of the sun (you would expect that from a fighter-jet but not from a ship!) that did it. Hope you don't mind a few grammar mistakes, guys, as I'm not a native speaker. Cheers.
Dark Tide (2012)
No sparks, just sharks
To me, Halle Berry's acting abilities are slim to non existent. For this movie she is definitely the wrong choice. She so not belongs in this environment. She so does not fit in. This movie might have been great with another actress in the lead role. With a complete different cast, in fact. And a different script... The filming sequences in the ocean with the sharks are great and also the shots of the boat. But Halle Berry just does not belong there. A bunch of loonies and a hysterical bitch are going to dive with the great white - in the worst possible time of year (mating season). And they go about it in an extremely irresponsible way. Not one character in the entire movie is in any way likable. I mean, I don't go watch a movie to see that the world is full of ####. I don't need Hollywood to realize that. My rating is 3 of 10, and all three stars go exclusively to the sharks.
This is a great movie, but not easy to understand
I watched this one for a whole hour, thinking, it is just crap. Something like surrogates will not be possible for at least a thousand years. After one hour I realized that this film has a message. The remaining half hour was interesting, because while watching, I thought about the meaning (the deeper meaning of live, y'know..)
This is the message (as I perceived it): stop living a substitute live in the internet. Real life is what you experience personally. What you can touch and feel and smell. I don't know if this is a spoiler, but better save than sorry, so I declared it as such.
Bruce Willis gives a great performance, at least when he is the real one and not the surrogate... The film is quite short, compared to other productions in the last years, but 89 minutes is OK for me. Actually I was glad it didn't last longer.
