Crop And Save
Wes Anderson at his best
Well, his done it again.
Wes Anderson's film continues to please me, and Rushmore is not an exception. In fact, it is, in my opinion his best work so far. This is where it began for Wes. He and Owen managed to write a great, original, and entertaining script.
The movie circles around, as many of Wes's movies, "failure". The people are characterized by this and i think all of his films create some sort of cozy feeling.
Mark Mothersbaugh, marvelous soundtrack as always.
Bill Murray, the king of dry humor
Jason Schwartzman, underrated actor with good timing
Olivia Williams, lovely with great accent.
Do not doubt to see this. For some of us, i'm one of them, this film is very important... watch it!
Quantum of Solace (2008)
The Quantum of Solace
So i'm lucky enough living in a country where the film is being viewed for the first time to the public. I've had mixed expectations on this one because i knew there were going to be á la Bourne Identity. But i also knew that Daniel Craig would deliver a pretty good performance. And the main villain played by Mathiue Amalric, who actually wasn't as good as i'd thought...but his performance wasn't a disappointment.
The movie begins with one of the worst bond intros i've ever seen; a car scene where you practically see nothing because of the super-shaky-way of filming it...
The main theme, peformed by Alicia Keys; which was a decent song, better than i'd expected.Although it ends with a ridiculous oh-oh-uh-oh-oh...
One thing that i really noticed in this movie; is how my feelings for Daniel Craig as Bond really changed. During a conversation between him and M i realized...this man isn't Bond. I've never thought of it before but when i saw him standing there with his heavy face i just couldn't help myself comparing him to preview bond actors...Pierce and Sean are still the only right Bond actors for me.
For those who expects heavy camera action...well you won't be disappointed, at some points i couldn't actually see what was going on. And i'm used (unfortunately) to films that are shot that way...
I'd like to point out that there's a scene at the opera which i want you to keep an extra eye on. This scene was one of the greatest i've ever seen in a Bond movie before...so keep that in mind.
Quantum Of the Solace isn't a disappointment and there's no reason for you to have second thoughts on paying for a ticket...it's a real popcorn film.
It's been a lot of discussion about the movie here on IMDb, but most of it isn't about the movie...it's about Will Smith's personal life. So to all those who cares more about Will Smith's personal life and faith are going to be disappointed because i'm not going to bring that up...
Hancock My expectations? Were not high but not that low either, i expected a few laughs but nothing impressing. Turns out that i was wrong, i laughed more than a few times and the movie was in some ways pretty impressing.
How? With the fact that they managed to create a perfect mix of three different genre's Comedy,Action And Drama...
In the beginning i thought "Here we go again. Another top box office, lame comedy. But later into the movie it really got more interesting, the jokes were pretty well written, the actings were decent but at least they weren't horrible.
Then later on came the part i wasn't to happy about, the drama part...it became too much...in my opinion it didn't fit in there at all. Maybe this is just me, but i think that if the movie would have continued the way it had been until the later part, it definitely would have got higher ratings...
Hancock is a film including funny comics and some decent drama parts, i'd never thought this but the original score wasn't pretty bad. So there for, Hancock gets a 7.5/10, it's worth the money...and drop all that scientology crap and give it a shot
The Coen brothers does it again!
Fargo is a city in North Dakota, and this is where the story takes place.
Jery Lundergaard(William H. Macy) is a car salesman who's hired two kidnappers (Buscemi & Stormare) to kidnap his wife. The kidnappers will be given a ransom for the returning of Jean, the ransom is being payed by Jean's father, who's very fortune.
As in most of the Coen's films the main point is "MONEY".
All the actors does a great performance and by doing so it gives you the a more realistic feeling. There is no disappointment on the directing part since the Coen brothers are masters of directing.
The movie includes their excellent humor which is being lift up with 200 curse words. There for, i can pretty much sum up that this is a classic Coen Picture and it will always be remembered.
The Terminator (1984)
I'm pretty sure everybody got a clue of what "The Terminator" is about. The year is 1984, A terminator (Arnold) is sent from the future to prevent John Connor being borned. John Connor is the leader of those who fight against the terminators. The terminator's job is then to hunt down the mother of the leader, Sarah Connor. But then, sent by John Connor, Kyle Reese. His mission is to protect Sarah from danger.
The film is relatively exciting, but somehow i lost the tense and the excitement when i got deeper into the movie. People have been talking about it and said it's really good, so i actually thought i was about to watch a masterpiece.
In my opinion, The Terminator is far from a masterpiece, but it's far from bad too. I mean Arnold did some decent acting, but then again he does play a robot. And the movie had 'some' Special FX that would even look good today. When i said 'some' i really mean it. Because most of the Special FX looks pretty lousy today, but i'm not going to judge the movie from that.
So to conclude this whole "review", if you like. I didn't really feel the movie. I understand completely how it must have been back in '84. But i'm living in a society where the audience demands are pretty high. So with all this concluded i can simply say that Terminator isn't a bad movie, but it isn't that great either. But it gives a pretty good picture of the future i guess.
7/10 A good, not great, not excellent, but a good SCI-FI picture...
The Terminal (2004)
Hard to decide...
...what to say about this film.
The Plot- Original as it seems, the movie still contains a lot of American clichés. Like "Hollywood happy ending". Exaggerated love scenes and so on. But yet there's something about this movie that forces you to not hate it. Deep inside i thought like "Man this is pretty silly" But the movie charmed me to enjoy it after all. But some things in the movie still made me think "That makes no sense". But the movie was funny, it had humor & Drama, which is a perfect combination, so give it a shot.
Tom Hanks, tremendous acting as always. He does the Russian accent pretty well, and i notice that he did his homework when it comes to learning Russia.
So we got, Good acting and a funny movie (at some points sad). You think that would be enough? Unfortunately this movie is ruined at some points, some things that make you stop like it for a moment and then later on you love it.
I was pretty confused and didn't know what to vote...it leaned towards to an 8 but there were to many points at the movie that i thought were pretty unnecessary and ridiculous. So The Therminal get's a solid 7...nothing more nothing less.
If you want to get entertained, rent this then. Don't expect breath-taking moments, but i ensure you that you'll laugh a couple of times...
The Terminal 7/10 1st May 2008
We Own the Night (2007)
We own the night
The reason i watched this it's because Mark Wahlberg was in it. I hadn't heard of it before and i just decided to watch it. The first minutes i wasn't that impressed, since i already know the IMDb ratings i understood why it didn't made such a huge impression on me. But later on the movie got better, a bit twisted plot but still good. And it ended up in greatness. I would recommend this movie to any movie fan actually. I mean it's one of the greatest movie of 2007 (#1-There will be blood ,in my opinion).
So grab a cab and get to the nearest cinema, because you own the rights to see "We own the night".
Gone Baby Gone (2007)
Gone Baby Gone-Good but bad directed
The movie turned out pretty good, not great but pretty good.
As many of you already know Ben Affleck directed it, this is the first time i see a movie directed by him. Was i impressed? Not Really. He managed to write a good screenplay, but he didn't do so well on putting it on screen. Most of the views were pretty simple, and now and then they were a few helicopter-sky views. I didn't know why because it didn't fit in the movie at all, it was like "Hey look we have a decent budget which means we can put a camera on a chopper". Takes more than that to impress me.
Anyway, the story however is based on a missing girl, actually i believe it circles around the whole area of kids being kidnapped. The story was pretty weak but since it was so simple it kept you alert. And with a little matching string music, it actually sucessed.
Anyway i wouldn't say that this is a GREAT movie, it's good but not great. I had a pretty hard time making up my mind on what to rate for this movie. I thought 7 was to low so i decided to give it a pretty weak 8. Think of it as a steady 7 or a weak 8. Like 7.5
The Air I Breathe (2007)
Stunning, simply stunning.
This movie....i can't start....gotta pull myself together lol :P What can i say? The actors were excellent the music and the mood everything. The movie itself is really a mood changer, from laughing and crying. And the people for bad reviewing it, they just pick on it because this movie is different from the other movies that is having premiere, for example: It won't be released through the world, and some people haven't even heard of it yet. But i heard of it like a year ago, and i managed to see it also, it was worth it. I've 400 votes on my IMDb profile, and i have been giving out five "10's" since, well i guess it's six 10's now.
But i like the situation of the film, it's not so well known yet and some people pick on it, i feel that in 20 years everybody is going to laugh at the bad reviews and we'll really understand what a truly masterpiece this really was.
"Stunning, simply stunning" 10/10
No Country for Old Men (2007)
Coen's Oscar material
No Country For Old Men The Coen brothers have a theme. What matter kind of genre it is, it'll either make you afraid, or amused.
I noticed that the Coen brothers have spent a lot of times with details on this movie. Many things ordinary directors wouldn't even think of, so that's definitely a plus. The one thing that the movie was missing that made me disappointed, was the music. There was no music in the movie what so ever. At certain point there was a mood string playing but that didn't work that much. I mean even at the most silent moments you could add some low trembled guitar or something in that direction. I've seen some Coen films and it's pretty odd for their style not to include music in the film.
But they managed to make you feel excited and create a very dark mood after all. So that's a + again.
I have to write this: For those who are sensitive of tense moments, jump scenes whatsoever. This movie made me jump many times and the moments aren't small jumps, at some points you'll really freak out, so i warn sensitive viewers out there.
Anyway if you like the Coen brothers, and the sort of Texas crime genre, you'll definitely enjoy this movie.
