Make a new history and new future for Pixar and Disney
I watched it a few hours ago and I could not help to stop thinking about this movie. Every scene was beautiful and incredible story and it was really funny movie. I believe I laughed almost an hour or more. Plot pace was quite fast so I felt that movie is more than 2 hours movie and enjoyed it very and very long.
Reason for saying this movie is make a new history and new future for Pixar and Disney. Because when people talk about the animation is for child only and then movie was not good enough for adult, this movie can shut them up. Most interestingly, when I watched movie in Malaysia cinema at 4.40pm show during weekday, I heard that adult are laughing around (let's just say) half an hour and kids are laughing around half an hour and they are laughing together around half an hour. It was very interesting experience. I watched movie alone so sometimes I felt bit sorry for kids beside of me because I laughed a few times when their not laughing so they did not understand why I am laughing at. So my point is adult can enjoy movie very much and kids, too. Adult should not have to lower down their expectation from the movie.
I do not know about what happen in the native English speaking country's cinema but I think it probably have same happen to them.
So I believe Disney and Pixar did it again for new generation of family movie.
There has one problem, maybe. Kids are not enjoy much than other Disney Pixar movie, maybe. I am not so sure about it. But, at least all the family member can enjoy it so it was good thing.
I highly recommended to anyone.
10.0 out of 10.0.
* added at 21 August 2007 I rated as 10 but it is possible to go down when I was watched it again. However, it will most likely stay at nine-point-something rate between 9.5 to 9.8.
Notre-Dame de Paris (1999)
I am not big fan of music but this musical amazes me.
I knew music was beautiful and it makes me feel better but I do not really enjoy listening the music and especially classical music such as opera, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart's music and philharmonic orchestra. I knew it was all wonderful music but whenever I listening to them, I will definitely go sleep. So I wouldn't enjoy it. I can only enjoy part of the music. For example, the movie 'The Shawshank Redemption' when Andy go to the prison's announcement room and then playing the opera(I believe this is one of the best scene in all time.), it was beautiful music.
But, I do like watching musical bit childish way because I would like to watching classic Disney cartoon movie such as Beauty and the beast, The lion king, Aladdin and so on.
I watched 'Notre-Dame de Paris' about 1 or 2 years ago and that time my English wasn't that good enough to understand the subtitles and interestingly I don't even remember what story is about so I don't have any idea what to say about it.
And then a few days ago I have been listening the some musical album such as Les Misérables and Cats. Surprisingly, I realised that how much I enjoyed their singing and playing. This is the what happen when you watched best movie or performance. It's out of nowhere it came to my mind. I don't even know what they talking about or what this story is about but I was so badly wanted to watch it again and listen to music again.
I must give rate for 10/10 because I don't even understand what they were saying or talking about but I still want to watch it again.
This is extremely powerful and beautiful performance and energetic and splendour musical. It doesn't matter whether anyone likes musical or not so I highly recommended to anyone.
I gave rate for 5 because I like the clever idea.
I didn't like how she acted when she was captured and locked down. I felt that it doesn't even close to looks real.
But, movie goes on, I just get used to it. It was OK, nothing more. And then there has something that I never expected. And it was small plot twist and then I liked the idea.
And other things, it wasn't that good but it was just OK. But, I only like come up that kind of idea. That is the reason I gave this movie 5.5 out of 10.0. I don't give a high rate for the horror movie so 5 was quite high rate for me.
I don't really suggest to watch this movie unless someone like to see clever idea in the plot.
It was funny movie. It made that way.
** I modified this comments.
User rating was too lower than it seems. This is advice for how you can enjoy watching it.
1. Avoid watching English dubbed version.
2. This movie is comedy.(IMDb.com forgot to mention it.) Don't even think about otherwise. It is like Kung Fu Hustle. This movie's proper genres are action, comedy and fantasy.(This movie is based on the comic book.)
3. You can enjoy watching Jang hyuk's silly and funny acting. I believe his one of best acting on this movie.
This movie was extremely funny like Kung Fu Hustle. If you enjoyed Kung Fu Hustle, you can very much enjoy this movie, too. I don't remember how long ago. When I visited some VCD shop, I saw a lot of times shopkeeper watching this movie. It was that funny movie.
My rating - Kung Fu Hustle (8.3/10) - Hwasango (8.9/10)
Hwasango was so high rating because I don't need subtitles. It is one of my favourite like Oldboy.
*** I just watched again and then I realized that it was a little bit overrated. What I remember the movie was that it was extremely hilarious. And it was hilarious but this time I recognized that action scene(i.e. flying scene) was not really smooth. Maybe, because last time I watched it through VCD so I couldn't recognize. Shaolin soccer also quite same happened.
I am not sure what will happen if I Kung Fu Hustle watched it again, probably my rating should less than that.
My rating - Siu lam juk kau(Shaolin soccer 7.1),Hwasango(7.5)
