Con Air (1997)
Nice action flick with some stupid parts..
Contains Spoilers *Warning* Truth to say, i liked this movie.. It tells the story about a Ranger (Nicholas Cage) who gets involved in a drunken fight concerning his wife, and he accidentally kills one of the men. He gets put in San Quentin, and stays there for a couple of years and then all of a sudden they decide that they have to escort some prisoners to another prison. They do so, by plane. On this plane there are some crazy villains and some not so crazy.. For example we have the bad guy Cyrus The Virus(John Malkovich), who i found to be extremely overexagurated. However Malkovich as usual gives us a top notch performance. Now most of the characters i found extremely clichéd. However there was one guy. One character they could actually make a whole movie about, but instead they throw him in late in this movie. Its Steve Buscemis character I'm talking about. He is so mystical and so weird but in a nice kind of a way, that you don't know whether to hate him or love him. he tells you gruesome stories like how he wore a girls head as a hat but in the end he becomes totally normal and ends up gambling in Las Vegas. Ah yes, the film ends in las Vegas.. Now here are some stupid things, they have to land the airplane somewhere in las Vegas and they cant make it to the airfield. So they have to land it on THE STRIP! i mean Come On! And during this attempt to land, Mr Poe(Nicholas Cage)'s friend called "baby-O" gets shot and is fatally wounded. So Poe gets started on a frenzy. He walks right up to the pilot and gets Shot in the arm on the way with out making the slightest move! However, they manage to land the plane strangely enough but Cyrus and his friends makes a run for it! So Poe starts chasing them.. Now Cyrus's death is one of the most stupidest death's i have ever seen.. First, he gets a pole right through his leg, then he gets smashed through some windows tied to a ladder, then he falls right through some electrical wires and THEN he land on some kind of a industrial machine that crushes things and he has the bad luck to get his head right under it. IN THE MIDDLE OF LAS VEGAS! A INDUSTRIAL MACHINE?! Now there's also Vince (John Cusack) who tries to help Mr Poe. He's kinda boring, but he gives the story somewhat of a lift.. And it really did need a lift.. Other than that, this is a nice little action flick. Yes it does contain stupid and unrealistic parts, but hey its action. The performances are great especially from Steve Buscemi who practically made this movie. If it was'nt for him, this movie would go way down. If you're looking for some nice action this is what you want. If you want some realistic thought provoking movie, this is not what you want.
The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Hope is'nt always the first step on the road to disappointment.
This is a great movie that shows us that hope is a great thing. The story tells us about Andy Dufrense, a man who is falsely accused for killing his wife and her lover and who gets sent to Maines strongest prison. Shawshank. In Shawshank Andy gets new friends, as well as enemies. Being the wise man that he is, he begins to inject wisdom in people. Helping them. He also meets Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding. A man also accused for murder, but on true accusations. They become great friends and together they give themselves hope.
This is a wonderful movie that leaves you happy and shaken. Its an must see.
Meet Joe Black (1998)
A beautiful story about a man with probably the most depressive job.
Sure. The story IS quite simple. Death falls in love with a woman he cant make a bond to. But there is so much Dept in this movie. It shows us so much love you almost begin to cry. The great friend ship that evolves through time between The Media Mogul William Parrish, who death came for in the first place is so heart taking. The actors are doing great. Hopkins gets to do one of his greatest achievements and Brad Pitt makes a great performance in a very hard role. And Claire Forlani makes an outstanding job as the Love of Mr Joe Black.
The ending was great but i have to admit i was a little disappointed when the guy from the Cafée came back. It felt kinda unfair to death.
Apart from that this is a beautiful movie which is, at least in my thought deeply underrated.
I loved it.
Lucas has fulfilled his saga..
MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS
This is a truly great movie and an great end on Mr George Lucas fantastic story about good, evil and the force.
Although i must say the actors could have done a better job. Some of the lines was really empty and i did'nt feel any magic. Mostly disappointed i am on Ewan. His voice is'nt exited and his face sometimes is'nt moving at all. The young Hayden Christiansen though did a nice job.
There is one little thing that might bother you. You always know what is going to happen. Since we all know how it is going to end. They actually could have shorted down that long fight scene between Obi Wan and Anakin/Darth Vader since you know from the very beginning that no one of them is going to die. But that is just one little conception and you don't think about it when you watch it.
The fighting scence's are spectacular and Lucas really has put some much life in this movie.
i give it 8/10
