A Streetcar Named Desire
I am not a great action movie fan, so going into this one I was a little skeptical... however, I was allured by the retro look in the trailers and it's all-star cast, so I decided to give it a go. And I was stunned, The look of the film was amazing. A kind of retro-futuristic, film noir feel which was just BEAUTIFUL. The stars, Gwyneth and Jude, looked amazing. They popped out of those neutral tones. The special effects were out of this world, although this was one of the least stunning things for me, because I expected this and have seen amazing special effects before. I expect they'll win an Oscar for this. Not only were the effects and the look of the movie great, but the actors did very well, too. I loved Dex, and Jude Law is really on his way to being a big star as well, I think. At times the bickering between Polly Perkins and Sky Captain got a little annoying, but in general I loved these two characters and I think they worked well together. Angelina Jolie really lit up the screen in her short appearance, as the kind of girl we all want to be. Also, I've got to mention that the little end sequence was truly brilliant and funny. I also loved how Laurence Olivier was hologrammed into this one. A really enjoyable movie. 8 out of 10.
The Conversation (1974)
Excellent, smart movie... Coppola knows how to make a movie!
Technically, this is one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time.
Coppola was really on a role in the 70s, and this movie is a fine example of his skillful filmaking. "The Conversation" is an extremely intelligent movie, like an older Momento or maybe a Hitchcock movie. The story is not only captivating, but it is also a good character study on Hackman's character. There are some amazing performances in this movie -- Gene Hackman is phenomenal, but I don't think we expect anything less from him! Coppola captures Hackman's growing paranoia very well. He knows how to create a very tense, almost painful to watch mood, which is very effective in a movie like this. I also thought that the score was really beautiful... great music. 9 out of 10.
The French Connection (1971)
The French Connection is an amazing piece of cinema. However, there is nothing redeeming about the subject manner (for instance the two narcs in the black bars). But the cinematography and directing is superb. The French Connection was really the first movie to have a fast- paced car chase, and it is done brilliant -- I was on the edge of my seat. The director did some amazing things with the camera, especially when Gene Hackman was following Frog One. (I'm sure anyone who has seen the movie will remember the subway scene). Definately a movie to watch if you are interested in movies, or making them.
They gave us the Old Razzle Dazzle, that's for sure
I am a musical lover, so when i found out the Chicago was coming to the screen, I was ecstatic. It gripped me from the beginning. I loved how Marshall slipped from song to song, almost effortlessly. Catherine Zeta-Jones was amazing. She can dance and sing, that's for sure. She was the force behind this movie, although the others did very good jobs. Renee Zellweger has always been a bit... scrunchy for me, but I thought that she carried her songs very well. She was good for the role of Rozie. Queen Latifa was also very good. I thought it was asthetically very beautiful. It really was very dazziling. The costumes and set were beautiful, and the score was arranged to completely catch the mood. I thought it was beautiful, entertaining, and easy to sit through. Also, a lot of his ideas were very original. This may not have been one of the great movies, but it certainly was very good in a superficial kind of way.
