Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (1988)
A beautiful voyage through a man's life
I have never seen a better movie in my life. This movie would make you cry if you have had a good childhood. It's a movie about nostalgia, reality of life, and about the importance of relationships we develop during our early days. It happens in a small town. As I was born and brought up in a small village I can relate to every aspect of this movie. It talks about love, sex, tenderness, comedy, disappointments and achievements. A must watch for everyone with a heart. The characters, the story, the direction, story telling and casting are just amazing. The actors did a wonderful job. It is a movie where the characters foresee what's going to happen. It's a movie with so many different levels. Simply breathtaking. Even though the pace slows down a bit towards the end, I would not consider it as a drawback.
I'll start with the good points as they are very few to start with. The CGI and Matt Damon's performance were okay. Other than that, the movie just made me laugh, not in a good way. The dialogues were so terrible that I knew where the movie was heading in the first five minutes itself. Every dialogue was made up to explain the plot which was already obvious from the visuals. What's up with Jodie Foster? I never knew that she was such a terrible actress. Many of the characters looked so fake and unrealistic. I didn't find a single character that a normal person can relate to. The Direction and writing were unbearably terrible. The writer somehow assumed that all the viewers are dumb. In the scenes where there was a melodrama, it looked so unrealistic that the viewers were feeling almost nothing. The whole time I spent in the cinema, i was so conscious that I was watching a terrible film. I promised myself not to go to this writer's films again. All my friends had the same view about this film. Oh by the way, there are some major continuity issues as well.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Waste of time unless you are an American.
It's such a boring movie. I wasted some valuable time watching it. There is nothing funny in it and I couldn't laugh even for once even though I tried. I really don't understand why this has such a good rating. It's such a usual Hollywood story with stereotypical characters. As soon as the daughter of Mr.Lebowski(the millionaire) appears, you know she is going to have sex with the main character. Such a stupid script and the message they give at the end is just for the sake of creating some sense to what they did with the movie. IMDb says they need ten lines of text in a review. Seriously? I don't think this movie even deserves a review. But, I'd take this opportunity to warn those who haven't watched it already.
