Man of Steel (2013)
Useless and pathetic
This Man of Steel is a real shame. Awful script, awful image, awful music, worse superhero costum ever seen in a movie. It just should be called Man of...steal, because not only it has stolen most of the script of the Richard Donner's version of Superman, but also steals from the heroic fantasy wave that has seduced most people this last few years (Game of Throne for example) in the first part of the movie, as you will see that the costum and look of it seems to come from the middle-age. What's more, is in this first part, the strange birds on which the characters are flying, that also seem to come from Avatar. And it's only the beginning. The other part of the movie takes place on earth, and the writers (shame on them) have just done a horrible job, scrambling the chronology of the story, with flashbacks and flashforwards, totally useless and pretentious. This is one of the most messed superhero movie I have ever seen : it even has almost no humour at all. Very serious, as Henry Cavill himself who spends his time frowning you don't know why ? Maybe seeing the result of all this waste, he feels like going to the men's room ?0)
Comme un chef (2012)
a simple but refreshing comedy
Of course, don't expect here a masterpiece or any attempt to make an original plot or anything like that : this is a mainstream production, and all we should expect from it, is just to be funny, well-done, and without bad taste ingredients. And so it is. A simple comedy, gentle, with a good rhythm, and nice characters. In fact, not only the main characters are good here, but everybody is, and the supporting actors here have their place, and contribute to our pleasure. Jean Reno and Michaël Youn compose a nice duet. There's not much that I can add. Except that even if everything was easily expect regarding the plot, what is never obvious to expect is that we'd have such a very good time.
I don't know what happened to me during the watching of this movie, but I feel as if I had spent this time catched by it, and especially the marvellous acting of Sandrine Kiberlain. Though, I can understand that this kind of movie needs a real encounter between him and you, and thus it isn't sure that everyone could easily like it : there is not a lot of actions, and rare are the dialogus. But, something is, at every seconds, happening. An emotion is coming up, or a thinking, at every scenes. Sandrine Kberlain is totally mesmerizing with an acting that could be defined as showing by non-showing. All that is happening is inside her, but also in you as you watch the movie playing. In a word, this movie is delicate. And so, very beautiful. Maybe to be experienced alone, in a dark room.
Voir la mer (2011)
voir la mer (de?)
This film is such a catastrophe! It starts by a plot anthology of incoherence, it continues with an intrigue with which we do not seize openly the interest, on the background of dialogues of a distressing dullness. The actors are certainly well, but I have enough of this kind of movies which is so empty and lazy, and which lets think that the director confuses subtlety and beggary. Even the poor "Prudence" does not at any time looks concerned about the fact that she is an orphan. Rather insulting for the Real orphan I guess. One of the worst movies and most disappointing of the year Another stone in the garden of the French cinema.
600 kilos d'or pur (2010)
The worse movie of the year
This is the worst movie that I have seen this year. The intention of the director is clearly to imitate the American style, with some kind of cow-boys actors, but their acting is so bad, that it just inspire mercy.
Dialogues are ludicrous, told in a cow-boy manner that sound too ridiculous to be taken seriously.
The script is so common, that there is nothing to remind after the end of this film.
I take pleasure in watching "blockbuster", but when it is done with a bit of humor, with a positive attitude. Not an attitude that reveal its lack of humor, and that it takes itself too seriously (especially for this kind of work)
Definitely the most stupid piece of work of the year.
A real disappointment
I cannot believe what has been done (with such great amount of money) to this film? It really could have been a great one, if only the script had been written with much more simplicity. Because, it has some quality : the photography is superb, and the predators are really something! Really awesome! But, as for me, two things are really missed, two things that I am attached to : the script is stupid, and the character are as uninteresting as possible. First, you feel like watching a bad episode of "Lost", then, after the classical presentation of the character, it is just being boring, one or two action scenes, then you can sleep till the end. Secondly, I really like Adrian Brody, but I really felt like slapping his character in the movie : a sort of mix between a skinny Rambo, and a pretentious Sherlock Holmes. Grrrrr, my god, how did he know so well everything? Had he read the script between his fall and his awakening? Also, the other character really lack interest. Some are just bad, but you don't feel like liking them, the others you just don't care. No Bill (1987's Predator), no one attaching or funny or anything... It's all a mess, till the end that is (I don't know why), suddenly interesting, and funny (if you except some king of crappy twist-plot...) I strongly recommend to forget there was a first Predator in 1987 if you want to appreciate a bit this one. Because it's all really a disappointment
Questione di cuore (2009)
This is the best I have seen lately. First, the director knows how to film nowaday's Italy, its streets, its café, restaurants etc... in a manner that you feel like going there, everything seems so vivid and beautiful. We are in Rome, a town that I have never come to, but after seeing that movie, it's like you had been there, and certainly feel like going back. But, it would not be so interesting if this was the only interest of that film. The main thing that really attracted me during it, was its characters, whom are so attaching, so real, and beautifully acted by such great actors. I found their playing subtil, well-balanced. The dialogues are nevertheless the best part of this film. It is true that it's a melodramatic movie, but in a good way, a way that should be moving you, and even be a little bit instructive, about love, friendship, family, etc... Of course, I wouldn't have liked it, if there wasn't a touch of humour, of comedy, and this is again one of the best thing in this film : it moves you, but it mainly (from time to time) is funny, never it is pontificating. So, for those whom like delicate, tender film, about friendship, life, and death, and all those themes, I would strongly recommend that one, you should not be disappointed. This is definitely one of the best movie actually on theater.
Le roi de l'évasion (2009)
A fresh and invigorating celebration of love, freedom and life!
This is one on the best movies I have seen last year, and was lucky to see once again lately on DVD. It is so fresh, celebrating what is best in life: love, friends, freedom, nature, sensuality, and in an original way, with people you rarely see on movies, I mean elderly farmer, whom are very authentic and funny... Also the director really succeed in creating a world and atmosphere of its own, with incredible character, and succeed every time in surprising you. You also feel sometimes like its a kind of dream, and that the movie beyond its realistic kind is somehow almost fantastic. Of course, if you are the kind of people whom only like classic character, handsome boys and sexy girls, you will be very disappointed. But if you like original and somehow crazy movies, that are sincere and simple, you will definitely like this one!
Seuls Two (2008)
Hilarious and sweet!
I really love this movie : first because it made me laugh a lot, and also because it's funny in a gentle way, as the two main characters are sweet and full of positive energy, and never vulgar,which is rare in humoristic films... I find it is their best movie, and the most inventive one, as most of the situations are their (to Eric and Ramzy) own creation, their "universe". The sequences of action are really well made up, and it's a pleasure to notice afterwards that they must have worked a great deal to arrive at a result of this film quality. There is also a lot of very famous french actors which everyone will be glad to see in this film. So, I will advice everyone to see this film, the best of Eric and Ramzy!
Hustle & Flow (2005)
What a shame!
This is a real shame! This film has a LOT OF QUALITIES : the acting is good, as well as the photography and even the story is not so bad...so, what's wrong? First, there are too many problems with the montage : so many time, you feel that a scene could be shorter, because what is shown is not so interesting, or because what is meant at a time is so obvious that it could be just suggested and shorten but not shown entirely. And that is to me, the worst waste in this film. Especially for a musical movie, rhythm is the key, and here, it lacks rhythm, which, pardon me, for a rap movie is a kind of paradox, isn't it? The second weak point, is about the acting : I agree that THE ACTORS ARE EXCELLENT, but you feel sorry for them, as the direction missed to bring some changes, some variations in their acting, so without those variations you get more and more tired, even with the best actors. So, because I am not a modest person, I will say as an advice for everybody here that want to make a film for me:0) be more suggestive, and never forget VARIATIONS, and Rhythm!!!!
