La vita è bella (1997)
Life is Beautiful is beautiful
My tutor had loaned me this movie to watch for homework one day. I wasn't expecting a lot. I was expecting some Hallmark WWII drama movie when I put this movie into my PS3. But once I started getting into the latter half of the film, I was already loving this film.
This film had a lot of laughs for a movie about the Holocaust, and for the reason so, I began to grow a connection with this film. I was laughing a lot watching it. Making a comedy about the Second World War is some Tom Cruise s**t. It's Risky Business. You need to know what's sensitive and what's not. But director Roberto Benigni knew what he was doing filming Life is Beautiful.
And once the credits started rolling, I already knew this movie was my favorite foreign WWII film by far.
Life is Beautiful is surely a beautiful film. It deserves a 10/10 out of me. If you're ever in the mood for an enjoyable, lovable film with relatable characters you can connect to, watch Life is Beautiful.
Because Life is Beautiful is beautiful.
This movie nearly made me cry...
My parents and I were on a flight to the Bahamas that had a two-hour takeoff delay. They had those little TVs on the seat that you could watch a movie for five dollars, but since it took so long, they granted us with free movies. I hadn't heard of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl until I had seen the teaser for it. I already knew what I was watching.
The movie was fun and enjoyable. I was relating to Greg and Earl making movies since I do that type of *beep* all the time. I am such a cinematographic fan and this movie was intriguing all the way to the end. It didn't really start getting to me until Rachel's hospital scene. That scene was moving and powerful just watching those two watching Greg's movie on her bed.
And I swear, when Greg said what happened 10 hours later after that, my mouth dropped.
I was so close from shedding a tear, and that's saying something for me. I very seldom cry to movies. The only other movie that nearly made me burst into tears was the opening scene of Guardians of the Galaxy. I've seen The Fault in Our Stars and My Sister's Keeper and I might have just been the only one in those two theaters that wasn't sobbing.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a heartwarming, very touching story of two kids named Greg and Earl whom form a bond with a girl with Stage 1 Cancer named Rachel. Since these two boys enjoy making crappy spoof films, Rachel asks for them to make a film for her. Greg is reluctant, but his co-worker and new acquaintance persuade him overtime.
If you enjoy cheesy teen comedy-dramas, I would say this grammatically-incorrect-titled movie is the one for you.
A try-hard for Serbian Film fame
This is one of those movies like Fifty Shades of Grey and A Serbian Film where once the replay button appears, it takes me some time to not only comprehend, but react to what I just saw. The movie was gross, yes. It was even an interesting idea, sure. But once Dr. Heiter pieced together the final touches of his creation and there on, it just started to get tedious.
He starts to treat the human centipede as his pet (i.e. feeding water, *beep* into the girl behind you's mouth while hearing, "FEED HER! FEEEEEED HEEEER!", etc.) and it's just redundant.
I was all like, "Yes, we get it. The angry Chinese is forced to go number two in her mouth. It's a 12-legged *beep* made of three innocent people. Get on with it!" I'm sure it could've been better; however, I did hear that Six made this as a taste test for Full Sequence. If that's the case, I guess I could understand. The sequel is way more brutal and gorier. That's a guilty pleasure for me.
Overall, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009) is a try-hard for Serbian Film fame.
Also this is my first review, so don't judge me.
