Natale a Miami (2005)
Very soft but not as bad as expected
Natale a Miami was recommended by a friend of mine when I went over to his place along with some other friends, and he insisted that we see it together as it's a very funny comedy.
Before the movie started I wanted to see the IMDb's rating and what other people say about it. I saw the under 4 rating, plus very few votes, I expected a low budget and quality piece of comedy. I also added the fact that it's Italian and I was sure to spend the next hour and so climbing the walls. Well, I wasn't far off concerning the whole movie's value, but since I expected the ANTICHRIST I kinda watched it entirely, which actually means a lot coming from me.
The plot and acting are pretty much as you would expect ( low that is ), the thing that most of the action takes place in Miami and absolutely everybody spoke Italian really put the cherry on top of the cake. Some dialogs were a bit unpredictable, maybe cause of the cultural difference between the Italians and Americans ( as far as movies are concerned ), so the 2-3 unexpected lines made me not sink the movie entirely. Also it's worth mentioning that 3 other friends of mine ( that were there ) found it to be entertaining and they had some good laughs. The whole plot was very predictable on the other hand and there's nothing that would keep you thinking too much about the movie after the credits come up.
Bottom line : the movie is very light, won't kill you if you watch it, and who knows, you might even find it funny on some parts but don't expect Pulp Fiction :) My rate is : 4/10
I, Robot (2004)
Worst good movie ( SPOILERS )
OK ... first of all what "worst good movie" means ? It means its one of those movies that before seeing you ask people about it and they say its good or very good and you expect much from it, discovering afterwards that you are a little bit disappointed.Well ... I was VERY disappointed about this one towards the end... Let me explain... Is it just me that saw this plot is so stupid and just like others say ... was made just in the way of getting money out of this movie. Let me be more specific ... We, the viewers, are informed about the "3 Laws" right from the first seconds of the movie and the whole things evolves starting those laws. Well... the first law said "A robot may never harm a human" and by the end of the movie we find out that THE main Computer that controlled the Robots gets to the conclusion that humanity always tries to selfdistruct itself ... with wars etc etc ... bla bla bla ... same stuff we see in almost every SF, and ( here is gets interesting ) the robots have to KILL some humans ( considered dangerous ) in order to keep the human race going ... and I SAID KILL which clearly violates the 1ST LAW. END OF DISCUTION ... now the Computer gives us the stupid lines about ohhh I'm still obeying the 3 laws by KILLING some of you in order to ensure the existence of humans... That is the most "idiotic" lines I've heard in the past years in a movie ...
OK so this ment a BIG black ball for this movie ... OK the special effects were good ... and some other stuff but COME ON people ... I'm not going to see a HIGH RATED movie like this one just to see Special Effects. This movie was bad ... of course cannot be compared to movies like Vapiros Los Muertos or Tremors which were the worst movies I have ever seen but when you expect much from it and you see such **** in the plot I mean COME ON ... And in the first 15 minutes I was thinking ... hmmm ... this might even be compared to MINORITY REPORT ... but OMG is sooooo far from the GREAT plot I saw in Spielberg's movie.
I would give a 6/10 to this one just for FX. ohh yeah and one ADVICE to those which haven't seen it by now : DON'T READ MY COMMENT above AND DON'T EXPECT MUCH FROM THIS MOVIE and you might like it more than me.
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
Turning Matrix into a Comercial BS with this one.
Well I must say that I saw The Matrix ( first one ) 20 times or even more and I got stunned as I discovered new things every time and I found myself saying " Damn how did they thought about this too ? ". When Matrix first got out people didn't quite had any ideea about what's with this movie and I personally thought that is just another SF Bull-S***. I saw it later on on HBO the first time and I was speechless at the end of it and thinking " Hell yeah ... that no spoon thing is the s*** " and I saw it times and times again enjoyn every second and got to consider it the movie for my soul if you know what Im saying... You pretty much get how much I just loved it. But then I found out they wore making 2 more parts and I thought to myself " What more can they show ?" and waited for this RELOADED part like crazy. And it finnaly got out with tones and tones of commercials comparing to the first part and now everyone knew about the movie ( even those who haven't watched the first part or knew about his existence ), so everyone was digging Matrix now. But I after I saw it I could not BELIEVE it ... I was thinking "is this a joke ?". Have I seen another movie or am I dreaming ?? I was so dissapointed... Don't get me wrong now ... I was sitting in the cinema's chair and almost burts into tears when I saw the Special Effects and all but the story line was going down and down starting to suck my every minute of the movie. Ok I pushed my limits as far as possible when watching Neo fighting all those agents and I was thinking "Ok this is the worst part and the movie is gonna kick ass from now on" but it HAD NOT. It got worst. When I saw Neo flying like Superman I couldn't believe it but the moment when he brought Trinity back to life said it ALL. Of course the talks he had with The Oracle and The Architect or so cool but if they couldn't make me enjoy the movie after the parts with the fight and Trinity. It was god damn brilliant with the jumping from the building in the first part and the bullet doggin stuff which wore all related to the "Don't think you are, know you are !!" part which was the key to the whole movie but those parts ... COME ON GET REAL ... Could they have made it more comercial than that ?
So I hated them for making Matrix ( which was the greatest film/concept of all times - a masterpiece of cinematography if you want ) look like a money making fountain with this RELOADED part.
But the The Revolutions came out and I wasn't all that looking into going like with the Reloaded but I saw it 2 weeks ago and I must say it was way better than I excpected ( maybe because Reloaded suked so bad ). It's easy to see that in this 3rd part they tried to get back to the 1st part "feeling" and all the phylosophy but they wore a little too late. I have respect for the producers that tryed with this 3rd part to REVOLUTIONISE the concept and fix the crap they pulled down into the Reloaded part. A good movie but not as good as the first one of course so my top is 1. THE MATRIX 2. REVOLUTIONS 3. RELOADED ( deffinatly is not worthy of staying near those two :))
