A massive letdown
I went to see the french premiere of the movie on Tuesday and i was utterly disappointed with the movie.The movie is really poorly written,there are major plot holes large as craters and many subplots (the Calypso one for example) are completely messed up. Above all the movie is horribly long,great lack of action,no longer funny as the the previous ones and the final battle is complete crap: brilliant idea at first, two ships fighting into a big vacuum created by the sea goddess Calypso( a big amount of...crabs!!),while two big armada are waiting...and waiting!!The climax on the battle is really nice tough,with the destruction of the Endeavour by the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman.
The characters are more or less enjoyable: Johnny Depp as good as usual,Bloom and Knightley have the attitude but Chow Yun Fatt character lacks screen apparition.
Overwhole a big letdown which will surely destroy the box office like Spiderman 3,the real masterpiece of this year!!Nuff said
Air Rage (2001)
lord have mercy
When i come on IMDb boards,I'm always fed up when i see a "the worst movie ever" post.After watching this *movie*,i think that i am soon going to create my own post!!
The opening titles:great,some kind of lame zoom on a gas oven (yeah,focus on the fire=explosions=great action packed movie!!)
The actors:I think that Ice T is a cool rapper,even a nice actor (sometimes, i insist,"sometimes") but the Steven seagal like policeman he plays is...beyond the words. The rest of the cast is...well i don't know where those actors were hired but jeez!!I bet my dog would have been a much better actor than them!!
The plot:Hijacking.original isn't it??
The action sequences:The first shot of the movie is an explosion.I told myself,well, cool!!At least there will be some nice pyrotechnics...I was dead wrong.The rest of the movie is mostly filled with low rent stock shots taken from the Air Force...
The dialogs are hilarious,the music is pure crap,the end is happy( i mean i was happy at the end because the movie was over!!!)
My cousin who was watching the movie was delighted( I'm 22, she's 42...well).I was on the verge of taking the movie and burn it.Maybe next time I'm gonna watch it...(who said never???)
Oggy et les cafards (1998)
This show is simply amazing.Real fun every time I see this blue cat get his butt kicked by these nasty cockroaches.Surely a rip off of good all warner bros cartoons but a freaking nice rip off!! The plot is as simple as that.You can see the daily adventures of Oggy,the blue cat who loves comfort and most of all his house.He lives with his supposed cousin jack, a green cat.There's also a nasty dog as neighbour and of course those 3 insects.
Graphically,the show is really nice to watch,with fresh and eye catching colors coupled with some nice CGI images.Fast paced and hilarious,the show lacks dialogues but compensate with funny sounds and most of all of a ground breaking intro.If you want to relax and have a good time,just watch this show where the cat is not always the looser!!!
Pour être libre (1997)
So,one day,a boysband decide one day to have have their own series!The result?PATHETIC!The acting is awfull,the plot invisible,the music is disgusting!They thought that immitating the New Kids On The Block would be cool!In fact,it is cool,but only for them.Sorry guys,you should rather concentrate on your songs,which are as bad as Pour etre libre!
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Watching Kill Bill in my country
SPOILERS.SPOILERS.SPOILERS location:Mauritius Island Object:watching Kill Bill in a theatre
11.30 am,the movie begins,only ten persons are here(most of them have never heard of Tarantino,they are here because there are no interesting movies elsewhere).Then comes the intro where David "Bill" Carradine shoots Uma in the head,everybody laughs,even if it is far from being funny.This is how its going to be during all the film,laughings during all the bloody scenes(apart from the one where Gogo takes out the guts of the drunken guy,everybody was stunned,including me!)
That was for how watching a movie in my country looks like.For the movie itself,I must say that It was one of the best i've ever watched.From the stressing intro to the final revalation,the movie is great.Manga part?.well...far from being Disney's stuff!Uma Thurman performance is wonderful,the music really kicks,the final dual between Uma and Lucy Liu is superb,it may lacks the gore but is has the style.So i'll be waiting for the second volume with great impatience. Verdict(movie):10/10 Mauritian public:0/10
Fight Club (1999)
Fincher's greatest movie
Fight club is,for me,the greatest movie of David Fincher.The acting is great,especially Brad Pitt,the visuals are cool and the make-up awesome and the story is great with a high octane ending. After the fantastic Se7en and the less good The Game,Fincher proves once again that he is one on the best director Hollywood has got.Within a couple of years,he has offered highly stylised entertainment,but it seems that he is not getting the respect he is due.It must not be forgotten that 27 scenes were cut from his very personnal version of Alien,and that he was just recently kicked from the MI-3 project by Tom Cruise. Is he comdemned,like Tim Burton,to follow the studio's rules by directing movies like Panic Room?I hope that he is going to bring more movies that will prove to everybody that he is one of the best.But for now,Fight Club remains THE ultimate reference of his filmography. *****/5
