I wish Bryce would have been so sweet as how he was when he as a kid.
When I saw the trailer for the first time, I was overwhelmed by the cinematography. The colors are so beautiful and so bright. And then I saw Scarlett as a cyborg, I couldn't wait any longer to watch the movie. Her expression and appearance was totally convincing. So cold and flat, like a poker face.
Finally I could watch this movie last month. And well, I never thought this movie would be so "slow" and "quiet". So many technology and science terms I didn't familiar with. And suddenly there was a rumble in a restaurant which I didn't know what that was all about. The point is, I couldn't grasp the plot in one sitting. I think sci-fi is a puzzling genre for my brain, lol.
Over all, I really adore the cinematography of this movie. Imagining the future would be exactly like what I've seen in this movie. The ads on the walls look so real and technology and science getting more advanced than today. Anyhow, I didn't get why the shape of cigarette doesn't get any change at all? It just looks the same as today. The foods and the utensils are no different. I think there should've been some differences to make the future reality of this movie much more convincing.
Although it's a bit boring, because it made me sleep a little, the ending of this movie's so absorbing. My eyes got teary seeing Major try to save her friend from the past by sacrificing her own self. It was so touching. Maybe the anime version of this movie is more engaging. If it's not, no one would have wanted to adapt the anime into movie, right?
Maybe because I was so impressed by the animated movie of Tarzan, which I've watched several times, I couldn't help myself guessing who is who when both are compared. At first I thought Samuel L. Jackson was the antagonist, the one who betrayed Jane's father in the animated movie. It turned out he's a good one. So, I got confused. The plot was a little hard to understand, for me. At least the cinematography is amazing. I really love it. The view is superb. The romance is pretty good, too. I can feel the chemistry between Tarzan and Jane.
It was a simple yet very entertaining and informative movie. It was filmed like a documentary, btw. It didn't provide you with so many great cinematography or screen quality since it's an 80's movie but the story and comedy was really great. It was so amusing. I think it's a universal comedy because I'm quite sure all people from every country, with different kind of ages will have a lot of laugh while watching this movie. I hope someday I'm gonna have a chance to watch this movie again. It deserve a rewatch from me.
So, this movie is about the search of gunpowder by European mercenaries but they were ambushed by legendary monsters who tried to go through the Great Wall to invade the palace. These monsters have something to do with a curse from the Gods because the King was so greedy. My question is, why the monsters really look like the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park? It's funny how they communicate through the signals on their heads.
This movie was supposed to be epic but mostly I found this movie to be amusing. It's just lack of Yimou's touch even though it was directed by him. I've watched his two movies which are so great, historical, and so Chinese (I'm sorry if it's a wrong term). But this one is too futuristic for me.
Getting to know her, I started to search about her other works or activities on the Internet and I found some on YouTube. Wow, she looks like a smart actress. The way she speaks about women empowerment or feminist. She's done a lot of movies and I found her other movie on Netflix. I hope I can watch it soon enough.
This movie doesn't only cover about the everyday life of a person with a cerebral palsy, but also about her sexual life. This what makes this movie unusual. What's more, Laila is in the position where she's confused about her sexual preference. It's something I've never thought about before. And reading the making process of this movie on Wikipedia makes me appreciate this movie even more.
Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep are my favorite casts here. They both funny, also the twins and the stepmother. I tried to like Anna Kendrick but I still couldn't find her attractive. The story itself is average.
I have to be honest I never knew any work from Ernest Prakarsa unless that he is a stand up comedian. I also heard that he's written a book, a comedy book or something like Raditya Dika. As one of main actors here, I think he acted pretty good. What Giselle did also quite surprising. That was pretty natural, except when she yelled in English language near the end of the movie. That was not so good. Over all, it's a great movie about family with great casts and great original songs. What disturbed me a bit is the details about the calendar shown pretty often. That's all.
Well, I think I put my expectation way too high. And I'm sorry to say that I love the adaptation more than this one. Not because I'm from Indonesia my self. I think the female lead cast from Indonesia are prettier and can act better than the one from Thailand's and so with the male cast. The same goes with the Japanese woman role. The adaptation made a good decision to describe her as a hot woman, who always wears sexy outfit, which suits her craving for a great sex. While here, the Japanese woman didn't look sexy at all. She's more of a tomboy girl with a pretty face. However, I like the story of female lead cast's other crush, which I think is much more reasonable. Also the story of his family. One big difference with the adaptation, I didn't shed a tear at all.
So, my first impression about this movie was spot-on. I watched the first fifteen minutes and I was bored already. The comedy is kinda trashy, I have to say. Why all the English learners have to be from various ethnicity? What a coincidence! And they're not funny at all! That's why I stopped watching it and started it again the next few weeks.
Surprisingly, the next scene was much better. It made me laugh although certain jokes degraded women. I think both Chelsea and Hamish did a great job. Hamish totally gave his all to act as a low class dude. As a sad scene, Chelsea Islan did quite so good it made me teary. Well, I did cry. This was what I didn't expect from this movie. Great job both of you. But, the story itself actually didn't really strong. I mean, the details are not so convincing, especially the family background of Amira and ones of Miller Khan's role. The change of personality of Miller Khan's somehow irrelevant to me. Why brought up family if you couldn't make a good description about them?
I never really like watching movie about war. I love history, but every time I watch a movie war related, it's more often than not to include bombing and shooting with a great damage to the human body, in this case soldiers or civilians. It's really painful to see. You can see blood, flesh and bone and sometimes it makes me wanna puke and begin to question myself again, why war?
This movie really shows that horror I really fear to watch. And it was so genuine. The scene was taken from Amadei's still rolling camera, so it feels so real. Like I was really there with them. I wanted to skip this part but I might lose something important, so I kept watching.
Besides its frightening bombing scene, it deals with a bittersweet romance between Amadei, his best friend and his real boyfriend. The uniqueness of his parents and their beautiful relationship also adds solace to this movie. But the truth that there will always be someone who tries to be in the "spotlight" after this terrifying attack is so odious.
The movie started very slow for my taste. I didn't know what kind of business and troubles she gets herself into. But it got clearer in the half time of the movie (I guess). I imagined the guy with a tad messy look as Mark Zuckerberg who's offering his product to the market and Naomi's there to be his agent/mediator. Something like that: stock/share. While trying her ass off to be successful with her project, some people close to her try to sabotage her. Stabbers all around.
What I hate from this movie is the voice of Anna Gunn. It's like she's whispering while her face has a strong look. It's just not okay. Her expression's mostly hard to understand. Is it just her trying to never let her emotion out? Is it what the script wanted her to do? I don't know. This made the conflict fall flat. Although it's not quite satisfying, I got some knowledge from this movie: the world of stock market.
The ending where Sidney and the killer were dueling was my favorite part. What Sidney did was so awesome. This girl really can act fast and unerring even when in a tough situation. Too bad, the scene where Gale rose up after being shot gave me a weird face. What made it worst is when the killer also did the same exact thing. Too cliché. Thank God he did nothing but made an odd movement.
The documentary is so informative and entertaining at the same time. Love to see those individuals involved in filmmaking spend their time together, support, criticize and appreciate each other's works. Spielberg himself was driven to filmmaking at a very young age although he wasn't so sure if it was his real passion or just a plain hobby, or even his diversion since he was bullied and a broken home kid. Those hard times in his youth reflected almost in his every movie. Some of them are very personal. And yes, Dawson was right when he said Spielberg almost never put nudity or sex scene in his movies because he's shy. So cute, anyway.
I downloaded Lawrence of Arabia right away because it's the movie that's so meaningful for Spielberg in his career as a director. I promise my self to watch all movies where Spielberg's in it.
I feel glad to finally watch one of this great horror classic. The villain/devil is so popular and I would feel bad if I never see one of his movies. I hope I can watch all of the franchise despite the bad reviews.
The cast are mostly perfect. But I was not quite satisfied with the cast of Justin Theroux at first. In the end, I liked him as Tom. He suit the role, seriously.
Comparing this movie with the one played by Chloe Grace Moretz, there were some pros and cons. I like Carrie played by Sissy more than by Chloe because Sissy's shows extremely weirdo and scary face. And those screaming she made really deafening. Wow, she is just amazing. Was her throat okay after doing that? But for her mama's role, I like it more by Julianne. I think she is far more terrifying and freak and maniac than Piper was. For the rest casts, I like this version more.
While for the special effect, I surely love the Chloe's version, no doubt. But still the first version give a more terrifying atmosphere.
I really didn't get the conversation between King Duncan and his staff while Macbeth and the other are busy killing in the field. Honestly, I haven't read Macbeth yet. So I need to check the internet for better explanation, especially why Macbeth is so obsessed in becoming a king while he knows that Duncan is a kind-hearted king. But, once again, thank you so much for the music. It is superb, as well as the casts.
