Bride of Chucky (1998)
About an early Ronny Yu movie...
I think this is a pretty good movie, with signs that Yu can be a very good horror director, who can create a Horror Evergreen candidate Freddy Vs. Jason. This movie isn´t too scary, but have a good black humor, and some moments we can remember.I warn Argento, Fulci,Hooper fans :it´s not a classic bloody horror, just a good fun...
István Szabó's great film
I saw this movie twice in the past weeks, and I love it. This movie is as slow as exaggerating. We can feel the happiness when the lovers meet after long years, and the sadness on their faces when they realise that it will never be the same again.They are still loving each other, but they've changed a lot, so they don't know each other.The power of their relationship was the very deep trust. Can you trust someone, you don't know ? No. There is no love at first sight, they had to work hard for their love. They have to fight against their fears, against the politics, and they haven't got enough force to start this fight again to stay together, because of this lack of trust. We saw the final motive in Meet Joe Black, when the boy decided to have good memories about the loved women, and didn't want to stay for the boring, hard days, when they accommodate to each other.
Komoly dolgok (2010)
Promising first feature film from the director of great shorts
The film's directed by Csilla Hajósi Szabó, who is a graduate of the Hungarian Film Academy's Television director class of 2007. He made Komoly dolgok ('Serious stuff') in 2010. It is her first feature-length film. Previously she directed several short films and two documentaries. Szerafina (2007) is an adaptation of a László Darvasi short story, this work tries to speak against the glorification of being single, and show the dangers of the exaggerated fear of commitment. Her 2009 short Roadmovie is maybe her most consistent work until now. It tells the story of a young man and a young woman. The woman is in love with an older married man, and is sad because he fails to phone him. The young man gives her company on the way to post a letter to her lover, and seems happy doing so. It was a wise decision to choose two actors who had worked together before and knew each other well, because their often improvised, real and lively dialogues play a very important role in the film. As all of her works are extremely low budget Csilla Hajósi Szabó often performs in various roles, as a director, screenwriter and this time she photographed the film as well.
Komoly dolgok is three times as long as Roadmovie and occasionally we can feel it. The director can easily conduct her stories throughout a short film to make them concise, well-paced and complete, but in the case of her first feature film she fails to make it as consistent as her earlier works. Komoly dolgok is a story of three young adults after their school leaving exams. They don't travel anywhere for the summer, they spend their time among the familiar blocks of flats, familiar working class people, and they try to solve any coming 'serious stuff'. One of them is Szonja (played by Piroska Móga from Mrs. Ratcliffe's Revolution), a young violinist who has a relationship with her teacher. This teacher is a much-older, married man (the same motive as in Roadmovie). The other (Gergely Goitein) is a young pastry cook, who loves his job, and loves Szonja, but he is too scared to show the latter (fear of commitment, a motive from Szerafina). The third one (Lambert Tóth) is a young guy, who has to find out what to do with his life before his sister and her soon-to-be husband unloads him from their flat. The film gives us some likable characters and stronger performances from actors, but the cast is way too uneven, as well as the characters. Some of them are well-written and lifelike, but some are a bit caricaturistic, or just simple clichés. The movie has some remarkable moments, but the way how it presents the life in these parts of Budapest is the same as it has already been shown several times.
(Since then, Csilla Hajósi Szabó finished her next short film Tune, which follows the way how Inárritu connects seemingly random people's lives together. It is a beautifully photographed film, but much less thoughtful and personal than the previous ones.)
La notte (1961)
A wonderful movie...
This wonderful movie was directed by the great Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni and the leading actors are 'Dolce Vita' star Marcello Mastroianni (as Giovanni, the writer), Jeanne Moreau (his wife) and Monica Vitti (Valentina).
The film is about a couple played by Moreau and Mastroianni, whose marriage is likely to have an end soon. The love they felt disappeared and they are still together just for fear of changing their life. The film shows a day of their life, when their friend Tomaso dies, Giovanni gets an offer to write a book about the history of a big company, he flirts with the daughter of this factory's owner, and their marriage comes to an end. Antonioni tries to express the thoughts of the characters with pictures in all of his films, and this ambition is very successful in this movie, called 'La Notte' in Italian.
Not an extraordinary horror movie
I think Bernard Rose work can`t be considered as one of the better scary movies of the early 90s.It`s an average movie with an - sometimes boring - average plot.Philipp Glass music was very good than, and now, too.Tony Todd isn`t as scary as Kane Hodder`s or Robert Englund`s performances.
