The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight is Victorious !!
The Dark Knight is certainly "THE Dark Masterpiece" .. absolutely stunningly amazingly great in every way you look at it .. every little detail has been taken care of carefully .. when I saw "Batman Begins" I thought it is great, "The Dark Knight" superior to "Batman Begins" easily. Both are great, though.
It is hardly a comic movie .. I'd say it is a crime-mob movie with a comic flavor .. it is by far & easily --it is easily by far-- the best movie of the year, one of the best movies ever.
Late & great Heath Ledger gave an outstanding performance as The Joker .. therefore, sealing his career in a great way .. he'll be remembered by it .. Bravo!, Legendary Ledger ! .. almost everyone else gave a great performance, especially Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman and even Christian Bale .. I've seen few movies with such great character development, "The Dark Knight" is one of the best among them if not THE best already!.
The movie has a dark thrilling theme that never lacks the depth which is presented by a brilliant vision of brilliant director Christopher Nolan who reunited with cinematographer Wally Pfister for one more time .. Wally Pfister's cinematography as in all of Nolan movies is great & at its best here .. you'll appreciate the great cinematography especially in the action scenes.
The original score was great which and was a team work of two of our times greatest composers; Hans Zimmer & James Newton Howard.
All I have mentioned above is more than enough to give you a cinematic euphoric dose, you'll get addicted to it easily .. I personally have watched it 3 times in the theater and I can't wait to watch it again.
words can't do this masterpiece justice .. and I prefer to let you discover its greatness yourself .. the purpose of this comment is to encourage you to see it otherwise I'd write 10'000 words or even more (can I ?) but I would still feel I didn't say much about it.
Get ready to an edgy, provocative, breathtaking & wonderful cinematic experience.
"The Dark Knight" is Victorious .. it redeems Hollywood's sins for a while .. perhaps, for a long "DARK" while.
Two Thumbs Way Up !!
The Warriors (1979)
One of the Worst Movies I Have Seen
I can't believe how ridiculous this movie is .. it is absolutely one of THE worst movies that I have ever seen.
I can't believe how highly rated this movie is! Maybe the novel is good but that doesn't necessarily means the movie is good.
The movie sounds like if it was shot in the early 60s .. bad picture!.
The script is full of NOTHING .. a few pointless-shallow words. What a horrible movie !! they should ban some movies from being released for the public health.
Well, the movie isn't a Hollywood cliché type of movie but still horrible movie.
The acting is terrible .. they supposed to be serious but I was hardly holding my laughs.
This movie is so boring that is unbearable .. I wonder, how many people died watching it? Never try even to watch it. Unless, you want to test the dying-while-watching-a movie theory.
Tupac: Resurrection (2003)
A Documentary Full of Facts Told Frankly by Tupac Himself!
This is a very good documentary .. it gave me an inside closer look to a world I don't know much of. I've heard some stories about Tupac .. some myths too in my high school but I wasn't 100% convinced and sounded just like lies.
I'm not a big fan of rap. I heard some songs of Tupac, though. I don't remember his songs but I remember that I didn't like them due to the foul language with all the swearing and the excessive use of the "F" WORD!.
Anyway, that didn't mean that his life story wasn't interesting .. the movie showed me briefly the life of a controversial young man who's music was popular in many places of the world .. I'm amazed of how frank Tupac is and that he has such courage to tell his stories publicly.
Good documentary..entertaining, brief and goes right to the point!
Wonderful Performances by Bates & Caan !!
Rob Reiner directed one of the best movies adapted of Stephen King's novels .. what's makes it so good movie is many elements and the key element is the great performances by James Caan & Kathy Bates .. we are (at least myself) used to see good performances by Mr. Caan in many of his best movies .. he is a clever actor and he did not disappoint me in this movie .. Kathy Bates was the real star here .. I've never seen here in a better performance .. it is one of her best performances (which are rare).
Frank ?? (The Straight Story) was cool in the movie .. and his performance was very good.
Rob Riener is a good director but sometimes, I feel he is more commercial director than artistic .. in this movie he showed us a combination of the two which wasn't bad at all .. very good, actually. Except for certain scenes that I felt he could do much better. Anyway, in the end the result was good.
It is a very good movie .. you will like more if you are a fan of Stephen King's movies.
Shimotsuma monogatari (2004)
Tries Desperately to be a Japanese "Amiele"!
This movie starts very good and reaches a point where it starts to go downhill until it becomes only an OK "pretty" picture to watch .. I don't know why I felt that ?? is just trying to be a Japanese "Amiele".
At least "Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain" puts you at ease .. this movie uses the same cinematography technique but in a very annoying way.
Don't get me wrong .. I'm not saying it is a bad movie .. it is just an OK watch-able movie.
Anna Tsuchiya was unconvincing sometimes .. and her character is too innocent in the other hand, Kyôko Fukada was overreacting Director Tetsuya Nakashima has done a good job .. especially with the visual effects.
8 Mile (2002)
I'm not a big fan of rap .. I've listened to a few songs of the so called the legend of rap "Eminem" .. I didn't like his songs, it is a bad way to use the language .. using nasty words in songs .. I don't like also the way Eminem acts .. especially his bad manners with almost every relative to him.
Maybe he is a legend to rap fans .. I believe his just nothing but a big lie.
The movie is really awful .. possibly the rap songs are the best thing about the movie .. I can't believe that Curtis Hanson did direct this movie! .. Hanson could do much better and I was disappointed when I was watching the movie just out of curiosity.
Kim Kim Basinger was good.
In the end, it is just a bad movie .. it sings only rubbish.
This independent low-budget movie makes you laugh out loud more than most of Hollywood's big studios movies. It is amazing how original and hilarious this movie is.
Kevin Smith is a genius .. the secret behind this great movie is the good script that is loaded with good & funny lines.
Brian O'Halloran , Jeff Anderson & Marilyn Ghigliotti were good .. Kevin Smith as Silent Bob is fine.
The conversations are funny .. no matter what subjects it includes & how long it takes.
One thing maybe was missing in the movie .. music .. it is not necessary in some kind of movies but I'd like more if there's a nice piece or two in the movie.
Simply amazing movie .. I can't wait until I see the sequel.
La tigre e la neve (2005)
Roberto Benigni's Comeback Movie!
I missed Roberto Benigni & and I miss his good movies ..
and not since "A Beautiful Life" he has directed a successful movie.
This movie is poetic and I wish I speak Italian to understand all the nice poetic speeches and the Italian poems.
As in "A Beautiful Life" Benigni mixes the tragedy with a light comedy that is funny and touching in the same time.
His performance was good ..
Jean Reno was good .. Nicoletta Braschi wasn't bad.
It is a good movie that you will fell in love with it if you are a Benigni fan ..
and will at least like it if not.
La vie rêvée des anges (1998)
Realistic One of the Best of 1998!
Real life is no sweet dream .. it is a painful struggle to many people.
Real life is harder even to women .. this movie realistically shows how rough life can be through two young women point of view .. it is a world of materialism that doesn't care about the human being needs.
I don't know what else can I say about it? .. it is too simple to be described in words .. beside I don't want to spoil it for the readers. I think European movies in general care much more than Hollywood about the characters .. especially French movies.
Élodie Bouchez & Natacha Régnier.. were truly amazing and they gave a high class performances It is realistic & absolutely one of the best in 1998 .. don't miss, it is a very good movie.
The Pink Panther (2006)
Watch Peter Sellers in the Original!
I was hoping that Steve Martin could play the role of inspector Clouse in a strong French accent but I was let down. It is not that I didn't like the accent of the legendary Peter Sellers in the original and the sequels .. I just felt it is not a strong French accent .. other than that Peter Sellers performance was good.
The movie unfortunately is not that good .. the original still a little better ("a Shot in the Dark" is the best pink panther, I believe) .. at least, you will laugh naturally of Peter Sellers' hilarious performance.
I hardly laughed watching the movie repeating all the clichés in Hollywood's book.
I highly recommend watching the original then watch "a Shot in the dark" and you will see the difference yourself.
