What of these scenes below do you think is the most intense funny or dramatic scene in a comedy? If you haven't seen any of these, vote for the comedy you would most likely watch.
This is the sixth part of the series.
Live-poll part I, Live-poll part II, Live-poll part III, Live-poll part IV, Live-poll part V
I was sceptical for a long time because of the drawings style, but was convinced in a short playtime that it is a good movie. I loved the little running gags that happen after the arrival of Jesper in his exile Smeerensburg, to which his father has sent him to become a serious grown-up at last. A little time further more characters were introduced and the story gained speed.
I like the characters, the developement of the characters, the scenario, the complete storry. It didn't became misplaced cheasy over the whole runtime. I like this simple, but heartful story of friendship. It has it's sad moments, but it's always told in a way children can cope with and still make adults wipe away hidden tears. I recommend that to every christmas time between all the scrooge movies. It's emotional great, too. Love it!
Tales of Halloween (2015)
In this episode movie of about 1 and a half hour, there are 10 short films presented by the wonderful Adrienne Barbeau. She acts as a radio DJ and introduces the bunch of shorties eloquently. After watching them, I have to say that the quality of the stories ranges from awful to ok. One of them even was funny. Over the whole playtime stereotypes of Halloween went by and I often thought by myself, that these minutes are spent and never come back. It's good to watch it for a few movies which were innovative. I would recommend to watch it on a rainy Halloween. It's ok to watch, but don't except too much.
El hoyo (2019)
The Bad Side of Mankind
This movie easily shows up how bad people are when they got their fortune and even turn worse when the fortune fails. It's highly philosophic on the one hand, but has no real learning content at the end, on the other hand. The best of the movie is the atmosphere and the attempts of some characters to cope with an unfair system, which the platform symbolizes. It tied me to the screen for the whole playtime, which not many movie are able, but on the other hand it has an unfinished conclusion, plays with stereotypes. I 'm not mad about an open end. Many movies with open end are great. But this one seems to be a cheap trick to not show they had no clue of how ton end this storry. All in all, I recommend that movie to people who like suspense and can take some bad visual violence. I would not recommend it to sensitive people who can't stand violence. But yes, this movie is really suspensefull, specially for the first time watching it. All-in-all it is worthy to watch it.
The Machine (2013)
Where Is the Border Between Artificial Intelligence and Aritficial Personality?
The Subject of artificial intelligence was being discussed since the first science fiction novelist wrote a book about it. I guess it was Isaac Asimov. So there were also many movies made about that matter. I think most people first think at the terminator from Cameron or the humanoid robot in Spielbergs 'Artificial Intelligence: AI'. But there were also smaller and more intellectual movies about the subject with e.g. 'Bicentennial Man' with Robing Williams or 'Ex Machina' with Alicia Vikander. So the discussion isn't new.
I think that 'The Machine' was entertaining in some way, but on the other hand, it was also long winded at some points and it hadn't really new content, I didn't saw before in other variations of the topic. I would recommend the movie to people who are interested in the topic, but didn't see any of the other named movies. For the other guys: Watch it, have fun, but don't expect too much.
These Final Hours (2013)
I Think Australia & New Zealand Do Really Good Movies Sometimes
I did like the Babadook, Strictly Ballroom, Australia, etc. ... so I had great expectations on this one. All-in-all the scenario of a threatening world extinction and having just 12 hours left is a very good ground to build an interesting story. And the movie is ok, just a few points gave me the brakes to give it not more than 6/10. I didn't like the filtering of the colors, which might have been effective at the end of the movie when it gets hot, but the movie has some sepia filtering over the whole runtime, like every episode of "CSI-Miami". I waited for Horatio ...
The next point is that so many people had extreme outbreaks of misbehave, including things which would misfit in normal life. I think the scenario was too over the top in some parts of the movie. At last the two main characters saved the movie from drowning in overdrawn insanity. The message of the movie was good at the end. Another factor that saved the movie. It's not easy to recommend that movie to a sort of movie watchers. I think it's ok to watch it, but please don't expect too much.
Not the Best, Not the Worst
I did like some things on that movie. The special effects did look ok and the actors were ok. Just the idea of body snatching or invading aliens is not really new, even at the time this movie was released. The realization was ok, but as a experienced horror movie watcher, I would like to have seen some more originality. I can give that movie a 6/10 when taking it as a homage to the former horror movies of the 60s, 80s. It reminded me on the better bodysnatcher movies and on movies like Tremors, Critters, The Bolb, something like that. I would recommend it to people who have not seen many horror movies, but are interested in. Then this movie might be really thrilling.
A Story of Guilt and Atonement
This story plays with the color tones. Some parts are held in color, some in color and b/w and most of the movie is held in b/w. It's the story of a young French man that fought in WWI and now travels from France to Germany for meeting a young woman to give her hold in her grieve about her fiance Frantz, who died in the battlefield.
The story is told in a very slow speed in b/w to show the emotion that lies in grieving bereaved people. It also shows how people on both sides (G/F) felt about each other at that time. The Atmosphere of the beginning 1920s feels real - and it isn't told with a raised pointing finger. War brings out the worst in all people which are getting in touch with it. But love might heal the wounds, leaving the scars. That might be the best conclusion I can find for the movie.
It isn't the best, but also not the worst movie of that kind. I did like it, specially because of the cast, which did the best to make a good movie. The play between b/w and color is appropraite for showing the mental state of the characters. I reccomend it for an art-movie audience.
The Pool (2018)
Dumb for Suspense
I can't count how often the two main characters acted dumb in this movie, but I still suffered for these weirdos. The stage is as simple as can: A deep pool, pumped out, at first 1 and then 2 dumb people plus 1 crocodile. Fading out that the crocodile might kill a person in some minutes, there were tough moments. I did like the production by building up suspense with minimal things like a ringing cellphone or a dog taking notice of them both. There are so many little things to notice that it makes the (tolerant) audience shiver with impatience of what happens next. A more sober audience will only count the dumb fails of the two protagonists. So I would recommend that movie to an uncritical audience, which just wants to have some entertainment. It has a wicked idea I like.
Zombieland: Double Tap (2019)
First Movies was Better
The movie starts keeping up the first part - somehow. It all seems to be a little weired. After about half an hour the movie starts and becomes more funny. All-in-all it stays mediocre and has some highlights for sure, but the originality of the first part is gone, even when they do a retry by the rules with another fraction of survivors. No, that didn't work. Digging out "the King" was ok, but didn't work either. It's ok, we were well entertained. But it wasn't a real burner. Our hopes were turned down after 1/3 of the movie. I would recommend it for fans of the first part who want to see the actors again, but please don't expect too much.
I did like the story, it is adoreable. Both protagonists, the cop and the taxi driver (Bautista & Nanjiani) do a good job. It's funny, it's good, but I prefer movies that are not in complete existance a commercial for a company. I did like the story going on, but every 5 minutes the audience got reminded, that stu (Nanjiani) is an Uber driver. They missed a chance to make a pretty good movie for doing a commercial with cool characters. They should better make the commercial more decent. I recommend that movie to people who don't mind watchin' commercials, but want to see some cool dudes, too. Special recommendation: Te Cup-A-Noodle-commercials of Arnold Schwarzenegger. They were as near as funny!
Open Season (2006)
I Like Those Two Animated Underdogs
This movie was released in 2006, so the animations are not up to date, but still watchable. I like styl of the figures and the simple but lovely characters they made. Some jokes are silly, but there are enough jokes for the whole family. I guess it is mainly made for children at the age of 6 to 10 years. Some jokes are only for the parents, so they can have an entertaining time, too. It's no milestone, there were several better animated movies inbetween, like e.g. 'Inside Out' or 'Wreck-It Ralph'. Compareable animated movies about friendship are a dozen each year. In this case I like the two underdogs Boog, the civilized Bear and Elliot the looser elk, who build a partnership to survive in the woods. It's an unequal team like Stan and Ollie. I would recommend that for families with children between 6 to 10 years old. It's a nice movie for rainy days.
Close to a Good Idea, but Just a Mediocre Carying out With a Bad Explanation of Itself
I did like how the movie started. It was pretty tense for about half an hour, but after some rites, we all asked ourselves which university would be like that? Where are the teachers, why is there clearly no lesson? An university of just throwing parties. One of the main problems is, that the story of the main characters seems so unrealistic that we could only laugh about that movie. At some points it got some suspense, but the rest is just ugly gore. I think if they would have put some more thinking how to show and clever explain what happens to the characters, it would have been a better movie. 'Grave' does look a little bit like vegans made it to shock meatlovers. That's ok, but they should think of a better story next time. I recommend it for vegans. It must be the horrifically for them.
My Days of Mercy (2017)
Nice - but Long Winded With Some Very Cheesy Scenes
I like the characters, they are pretty good written. I like how the story goes - the beginning is really interesting. It's not only that, because the scenario around the two main characters fits perfectly. But at about the middle of the movie it becomes a nerving war, because the characters beginn to act (partly) totally cheesy. Then it becomes like a teenage nerv rampage. That destroyed the good impression the movie made in it's beginning. I recommend this for teenies. ;)
The Mountain Between Us (2017)
A (Partly) Realistic Look at Surviving in Raw Nature
From beginning it was a scenario that truly can happen. I did like how they managed to make the airplane crash looking as realistic as possible. The characterplay between the two protagonists is intense and feels sympathic. I feared with both, hoped with both and suffered with them on their challange in the deathly cold mountains. So why not the full 10/10. I was really well entertained, just a few happenings were a bit too unrealistic to give the full 10. I don't want to explain this closer, because I don't want to spoil. At the end the few little hurdles don't really interrupt a good movie experience. I recomment this movie to fans of movies with nature background like e.g. 'Cliffhanger', 'North Face', 'So weit die Füße tragen', etc. Special nice movie to watch with your husband or wife.
I did like the little puns, the main character does, but it also has some ugly gags with elephant sperm and some scrotch jokes. so I'm a little divided into two mind by this movie. I had some laughs and some wannabe laughs. It's nice, if you can cope with some real crude scenes. But if you have the opporunity to watch a real good comedy instead, take the real good comedy.
Very Sad, but True
Tis movie tells real a real event in 1992, Rostock-Lichtenhagen, a German city where a group of young Neo-Nazis burnt a refugee facility, followed by the applause of 3000 residents. The movie shows how it came to the riots, by a fictive group of young people which don't like to suffer in despair, which have too much time, too much criminal energy and which don't trust on the state. The fictive group of young men stand for the guys who did this in real. I know, when it happened, I was a young man. And eventhough I live in another federal state of Germany, I still know that I knew it was a bad sign for the future. This movie is filmed in b/w and that's good. The colorless pictures give a good guess, how this people hated. My heart is with the people of vietnam who suffered the hate at this day. Very good movie, it actually shows the spirit of that time. I recommend it to all people who want to know more about the incidents of Rostock-Lichtenhagen.
It Chapter Two (2019)
A Movie That Deals With the Fears of its Protagonists
According to the first part, this one shows how things from youth or childhood can influence grown ups lifes. It's the second part of the 'It'-remake, which tells the story to end. The youth group of people raised outside Derry and re-untites by a call of Mike Hanlon, the black librarian, who never left Derry like the others. In a time the group is united and now strikes against Pennywise, the clown of their childhood, which stands as a metaphor of the pure evil. They got to push it to the limit for avoiding to fail in a fight of the pure evil.
In the old movie, they didn't have the methods to show the evilness of Pennywise, even though Tim Curry did very well. In this part they used all visual methods to show up how bad Pennywise and his "army of bad beigs" really is. The frachise is took to modern times. It shows themes, which would be unpopular in the 1980s or 90s and also feels fresh. I do like it, it's a recommendation for fans of Stephen King, but also for other horror movie fans.
A Real Bad Story
It looks pretty realistic how the story goes in this mafia story. It's disgusting and frightening how the story goes, but it feels also realistic in a bad way. The dirt, the intrigues, the milieu, the politics. The death of people in this movie looks realistic. If 'The Godfather' would be remade these days, I guess it would look like this movie. It might look sober in some scenes. But I guess even this is realistic. A recommendation for people who like mafia movie that feel realistic.
Mortal Kombat (1995)
One of the Best Cult Trashies
It's no secret that Paul W.S. Anderson is a very mediocre director, but also a maker of cult action movies. I'm in two minds about that movie. The story was interesting at the time the movie was released. Same for the fights, which seem a little outdated. When it comes to CGI, I just can tell you they're awfully cheap, up to eye-sores. But I have to admit that the stage settings are phantastic and beside the bad acting the movie has real beautiful visual scenes by hand built stages. The play with different kind of light ist great in some scenes. The places where the action happens, sometimes have let me forget the bad acting and bad CGIs. By looking at all, I surely can't hype the movie, but also can't burn it. I can recommend this to no one. The guys who like it, already know the movie. That's cult!
I Am Heath Ledger (2017)
Close to His Life
A pretty good documentation of Heath Ledger's short, but powerful life. It's nice to have these insights, the documentation provides. Most of the time, Kim Ledger tells ver warm hearted about his son Heath. He tells many points of his life and therewith paints a portray of Heath's person in vivid colors. The appearance of special persons in his life shows how he was outside the family. Aa a special highlight Terry Gilliam tells about the filming of 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus', which was finished with the help of four colleagues of Heath Ledger, who died before ending the work. I would have given the documentation full 10/10, if Christopher Nolan would have been interviewed about his work with Heat Ledger. As interesting the documentation is, as short it is. I think it could have been 10 or twenty minutes longer. A clear recommendation, specially for Heath Ledger fans.
Office Uprising (2018)
Silly, Silly, but Also Funny
It's aver crude idea, to drive a company mad by giving canned drugs to them. After consuming the drugs, the emploees of a weapon manifacturing company go wild and murder without border in the office. Three friends try to escape from their drug driven colleagues in a 5 staged special secured building with all means they got left. It turned out to be a really gory movie. If you are able to cope with a funny gore movie, you might watch this. I did like the satire on weapon selling companies. On that base, I can have a laugh on it. Beside the lousy CGI's, which is not really irritating, it is a movie to watch with good fellows while having a Bud - or some other beer. But compared to all other movies in the world, it isn't a milestone for sure. Watch it, if you want some silly fun with gory parts. A recommendation for friends of movies like 'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil' or 'Zombieland'.
Time Trap (2017)
This Movie had a Budget of only 1.000.000. In times of some hundrets Million Dollar Productions, this is very low budget, but the idea of this movie is simply innovative.The story was capturing from beginning to end. It does not really look professional expensive, but the story was well told with the resources they had. The scenario is simple, a frequently used theme - the relativity of time. I like how the story was told, because the story seems logical in many ways. I would like to see a sequel and wish the producer and director had more money for a sequel to tell more. The conclusion of the movie is not closing. Some viewers could be disappointed, because the story has an open end. Even though the movie was very entertaining for us, I think it's difficult to find a part of the whole audience to recommend it to. It might need some experience in time-travel stories to understand the issue of this movie. So I would recommend it to people which are interested in fictional views of time traveling or the relativity of time.
Wonder Wheel (2017)
Underated in Some Ways
It's one of Woody Allen's strongest disciplines - he uses absolutely clear drawn characters. When I saw this movie, I could relate how the characters must feel. The strenght of 'Wonder Wheel' is to make the audience feel with the characters and always giving the question: What would I do in his/her place. It's very touchy and tells an intriguing story of desire and how desire can become a downward spiral. The story is well-written, the production design looks pretty good and authentically for the 1950s, camera and cut is perfect. There are some strong visual scenes it, playing with colored light to create special moods. Big cinema! The actors act great, a special highlight of all main actors and specially of Kate Winslet. I think "Wonder Wheel" underrated. I recommend this movie for people who like strong relationship dramas.
Thank You for Your Service (2017)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Those four words can't tell what's happening with soldiers in combat. War is a dirty thing and so are the psychological wounds after. This movie shows the lack of care that soldiers are suffering back home. I think it's a little pathetic at some points, but in general it's a good movie to show how the homecommers have to deal with their problems. But I miss a little bit the whole scale of the problem. I guess the problem is much bigger than the movie showed. Further generations will name the real problem.
Tomb Raider (2018)
Pretty Good Reboot
According to the old series with Angelina Jolie, there have been plenty of things done better. The whole production design looks better, it has a very much better story than the old ones and Alicia Vikander looks more like the video game queen Lara Croft. The story parts are better, the action looks better. It simply is more coherent, more consistant than the old movies. I hope there will be a sequel. A recommendation for the fans of video game character Lara Croft and open minded people who just want a nice film evening with popcorn. It's popcorn cinema.
