The Notebook (2004)
This was an incredibly beautiful, marvelous movie.
I just don't why it gets too much undeserved hate. It could easily considered as one of the best romantic films ever made, and personally I found it to be very inspiring from beginning to end.
While most modern movies usually don't inspire me to read the book in which many of them are based, "The Notebook" was good enough to awaken my interest for the source material, and I have to say that Nick Cassevetes did a great job capturing perfectly well the mood and essence of the original novel.
I found "The Notebook" to be an excellent film and I honestly wish there were more movies like this. Nowadays, almost every movie seems to be filled with an overload of CGI or some superhero/fantasy stuff (While I have to admit some fantasy and superhero films can be incredibly good, I 'm starting to become tired of the over-saturation of both genres)
The most amazing saga of fantasy films (I'm talking of course of the great "Lord of the Rings" trilogy directed by Peter Jackson) is back, and it is just awesome as ever. I was worried about the possibility of this movie to receive the same kind of backlash that the Star Wars prequels (To be honest, I like the Star Wars prequels, but most of the critics and internet reviewers seem to hate those movies) but fortunately this movie got the good reception that it deserved, having all the good elements from the original trilogy: An epic and inspiring story, likable characters, spectacular visual effects, a great production design which is above the most of the stuff done by Hollywood in the recent years, likable characters, a good balance of seriousness and comedy...There wasn't anything which I didn't like about this movie. I was a perfect prequel which actually leave me wanting to see more.
I just hope that the two next films from "The Hobbit" were just as good as the first one. This movie was excellent in every possible way!
Ugh! The Police Academy films are simply the worst thing I've seen in my life.
Of course, this movie sin't the exception, being another unnecessary addition to a lame franchise that was bad from the beginning. All the jokes from this movie were dumb, idiotic and unfunny and everything about this terrible movie was dire and unwatchable.
I have to say that while I'm not very much into 80's movies (An overrated decade for cinema, but no so much as the 70's) but this was pretty much the very bottom of the barrel. In many ways, this wasn't anything better than modern garbage as "Date Movie" or "Meet the Spartans". In many ways, I think that this could be even worse than those two movies.
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
Sam Raimi never disappoints, and this movie isn't exception of that rule: This magical and highly enjoyable film has all the charm from the 1939 classic, being a great tribute to that movie from beginning to end.
While some viewers dislike the visual style used in this movie, I think it was fantastic. Probably not at the same level of masterpieces like Avatar, but it does has the colorful, almost dream-like beauty that made the 1939 one of the most beloved fantasy films ever made.
James Franco makes here a very funny and charming performance as the titular character, resulting in a film very entertaining to watch, despite the slight predictability of the plot (After all, being some sort of prequel of the 1939 classic, it is quite obvious how things are going to end)
My recommendation to the viewers who are going to watch this movie is to don't expect it to be like "Wicked" (A great musical, but the story is unrelated to the books and movies) Instead of that, expect a nice homage to the Judy Garland movie (Even when this isn't a musical)
Street Fighter (1994)
"Street Fighter" is a typical video-game: Dumb, boring and poorly made, with zero appeal to most viewers, even those who, unlike me, can enjoy a dumb action flick as long it is entertaining.
The sad thing that is "Street Fighter" is not only dumb, but also terribly boring as well. It has an idiotic plot, bad performances and many pathetic scenes that made one viewer wonder in what were the makers of this movie thinking. It also has Jean-Claude Van Damme (one of the worst actors from the entire cinema history) as the main star, and that is enough reason to stay far way from this terrible movie.
The "Street Fighter" movie is just as bad as the "Resident Evil" movies.
Anna Karenina (2012)
I don't see why this gets so much hate: Personally I think that this was such a great film, and Keira Knightley was outstanding here, doing one of the most brilliant and fascinating performances of her entire career.
While the haters dislike this movie for not being exactly like the book, I found this version of "Anna Karenina" to be something fresh and original, which despite taking several liberties with the plot, captures the main essence of the novel written by Tolstoy.
This could have been just another adaptation, well done and well acted, but without originality or memorable qualities. Fortunately the great direction of Joe Wright made this a memorable and fascinating experience, which shows under a new light the characters and themes of the original story.
And personally, I think that here the "play-format"(Several scenes seem to take place on a theater stage) worked better than in "Dogville".
Nanny McPhee (2005)
A good film
I think this is a pretty decent flick for the whole family, probably not at the same level of masterpieces like "The Sound of Music" and "Mary Poppins", but at least it was much better than most of the so-called family films that Hollywood keeps producing in the recent years.
For me, what made this movie work were the funny performances of each actor, particularly Colin Firth and Emma Thompson, who made this film a very enjoyable experience despite the silliness of some scenes.
Honestly, this turned out to be much better than I was expecting, and some scenes (like for example, the beautiful ending scene) remind me the times when innocent films for the whole family were produced, unlike the commercial and inappropriate kid's movies and television shows of the recent years.
I found this movie to be a complete garbage, like most of the movies starring (or directed) by Mel Gibson. (I think that "The Passion of the Christ" might be one of the very few notorious exceptions)
This movie is pathetic and boring. It lacked an interesting, likable characters or any kind of redeeming value. There simply wasn't anything good about this atrocious film.
It was a terrible film, and it was the worst Ron Howard movie, along with his "Da Vinci Code" film (A terrible adaptation of an equally terrible book) and the dreadful "Angels & Demons".
If you want to see a good movie directed by Ron Howard see "Cinderella Man" or "Apollo 13" and skip this nonsense.
The Simpsons (1989)
The best cartoon ever made
Too be completely honest, I don't like very much cartoons, and I don't understand why some of them are so popular (Like the annoying and overrated series called "Family Guy") However, I do like "The Simpsons", and I think that it is one of the best television shows ever made, having lots of different characters (I Think that Homer is quite annoying, but the other characters are very interesting and funny, specially Lisa Simpson, Maggie, Marge and Ned Flanders) many funny situations and lot of good celebrities occasionally appearing in the series, making it more entertaining.
The jokes are fun, and the cultural references are very clever and well done. This is a very enjoyable series, with something to offer to everyone, and I think that's the main reason why "The Simpsons" could be easily considered the best cartoon ever made.
A Little Princess (1995)
Alfonso Cuaron best film
This was such a beautiful film. It is one of the best kids movies ever made, and it is also the best movie directed by Alfonso Cuaron, a very good movie director (Despite the fact that sometimes he made bad movies such as "Y tu Mama También") This version was a much better adaptation than the 1939 (Which is a very good film, but honestly I think this was a better adaptation of the book) This film had the heart in the right place, and captures perfectly all the emotion and beauty from the book. It has an excellent visual style, the music and the performances were quite good too.
I loved this movie. I wish there were more kid's films like this. I highly recommend it to anyone.
