Jusqu'au déclin (2020)
Review - Jusqu'au déclin
Jusqu'au déclin is a watchable movie about a group of survivalists that prepare themselves for some kind of apocalypse or anarchy.
I have to give to this movie that it is quite entertaining, and thrilling. But it contains some major flaws.
First, the acting performances are decent, but the characters and the plot are poorly developed, it felt like it was trying to justify the extreme violence
At this point, this film fills pretty much every requirement to be a slasher except that most of the kills are executed indirectly (by guns/traps).
I can't suggest this movie unless you were only expecting suspense and violence.
Review - Limelight
This movie is great, I liked the music and the cinematography.
Unfortunately, there is not much to say about this movie except that it is clearly an homage to Chaplin's career.
Patriot Games (1992)
Review - Patriot Games
This movie is enjoyable, but it becomes hard to separate this one from the others Harrison Ford's action flicks.
As I said below, the is no real ambition, they rebooted a very successful character with a very successful actor, they also used a very conventional style of directing.
Plus, it is simply another unnecessary movie depicting the United States has a hero. Honestly, the title didn't make false promises, it is called Patriot Games, and it perfectly describes this movie.
Despite what I mentioned below, Harrison Ford is according to me to the best interpretation of Jack Ryan, he is charismatic and has well-written dialogues.
Manbiki kazoku (2018)
Review - Manbiki kasoku
Some of the best child performances that I have seen recently, you almost the impression that they aren't acting.
The relationships between are well explored and nuanced by the director, Hirokazu Koreeda, and not a single minute of the runtime is wasted on unnecessary character motivation explanation, the smart directing can make you deduce by yourself what is going on on the mind of the protagonists
A truly well-deserved Palme-d'Or, shocking that this movie didn't get more recognition in the Occident.
American Made (2017)
Review - American Made
It is an enjoyable movie, with a really dynamic directing, but unfortunately, it doesn't innovate.
The movie would have been way better if it was able to separate from the influence of its predecessors like Lord of War and The Big Short.
The cast, in general, is playing decently, but there is zero nuance or facial expression most of the time, and the intervention "Barry Seals" when he is breaking the fourth wall are pretty useless to the plot itself, he is commenting on something that we already saw or understood.
It is not particularly a movie that I would recommend except if you want to look at all the filmography of Tom Cruise.
Le dernier métro (1980)
Review - Le dernier métro
A wonderful movie with a good story and actors, but François Truffaut this time wasn't able to adapt his tone to the story, it is filmed like a fairy tale for children.
To begin with, I have a lot of praise for the amazing performances. Especially Gérard Depardieu, this movie is really representative of his talent and his range of interpretations if you want to look at other movies with similar performances, I recommend Germinal and La Femme d'à côté.
The directing is fun to watch and lighthearted, but this tone didn't feel appropriate to the movie, he uses the same trademarks and gimmick, but one can't simply make a pure lighthearted movie about the WWI. I have nothing against satire, but this movie wasn't a satire, and the tone that Truffaut used to depict the events doesn't pay homage to the tragedy.
Add to the previous argument, that the storytelling is full of plot holes, that the pay-offs are poorly introduced and that the beginning of the story is very slow, not much is happening.
For all those reasons, this movie is worth a 7/10, it is an enjoyable movie with extraordinary performances, but not more.
Domicile conjugal (1970)
Review - Domicile conjugal
The cinema of Truffaut is evolving with his character. it is a saga that you need to watch in its entirety.
Unlike Boyhood in 2014, the cinema of Truffaut is evolving in tone, and in its thematic throughout the saga, you can rest between each movie of the saga, and that is contributing a lot to my appreciation of the film, you get time to think about each story.
The major problem of this film series is that it seems improvised, the first movie wasn't meant to be the pilot of multi-decade film franchises.
For this particular movie, Truffaut is addressing more adult theme like adultery, the genius of Truffaut can take this taboo subject and turn it into a hilarious comedy with hitting jokes, the directing complements that, the director varies his style, yes he obviously pays homage to his recurrent trademark and previous movies, but it innovates so you don't feel like you are watching the same movies over and over again.
Despite being worse than the precedent, I still highly suggest this movie.
Les parapluies de Cherbourg (1964)
Review - Les parapluies de Cherbourg
It is an ageless movie. But do you a favor, if you don't like musicals, don't watch this movie, it is entirely musical.
This movie has amazing cinematography, it is almost poetry, in this case, it reinvented the code even before movies like The Graduate, and the pastel colors depicting the 1950s are great in every circumstance.
Now, I want to warn again possible viewers that all the plot is sung, it can be very surprising and destabilizing at the first viewing as the dialogue aren't that great, they were mainly written to fit the tone of the film and the beat of the music.
Finally, except for being a Palme D'or, this movie has an important cultural impact just recently, Damien Chazelle' La La Land went on theater, and it is strongly inspired by "Les parapluies de Cherbourg". In other words, you have to know the bases and the classics like this movie.
Review - Warrior
Good movie overall.
The story revolving around brothers fighting each other but for different reasons is more developed than in many other fighting movies, you can't choose your side, both are excellent and well-written characters that are explored deeply in the first half of the movie.
The second half is a great gift for fans of sports movies, you have non-stop and well-edited fighting scenes. However, I feel that the fights of Tommy were too short and unrealistic. This is where a gap is created between the onscreen time of each character. Fortunately, Tom Hardy's performance catch-up this gap.
To conclude, this may not be worthy of the top 250, but it is the best fighting movie since Million Dollar Baby.
Trois couleurs: Rouge (1994)
Review - Trois couleurs: Rouge
This movie is a perfect conclusion to this series,
It pushes the viewer to address fundamental questions about the ideas of justice and law, it demonstrates empathy and comprehension for his character.
It depicts those in the more human way possible, but it doesn't take you by the hand. It is a reminder that author movies can still relevant, entertaining, and engaging to every viewer.
Where its predecessors were focusing on individual liberties, this one brings the concept of society and fraternity. Each character is reacting to the other's opinion and Kieslowski's camera doesn't take a position in the conflicts, it let the cinephile decide who was wrong and who was right.
This movie truly has timeless messages to deliver, and it is absolutely worth watching.
The Children's Hour (1961)
A Dark Masterpiece in Pink
This movie is hard to watch for all the good reasons. It depicts very well the 1930s social-era, but the message of this William Wyler masterpiece is not on an era, and it about lies. This is how the director wanted us to understand the story, like Jagten in 2012, this movie shows how lies can destroy lives, but this movie goes further than that. If you interpret the film, you come to the fact the roles are characterizations of society. The true villain in this movie is the society.
Then, if we forget about the powerful storyline and scenario, we still can enjoy the rare heartbreaking performance by Audrey Hepburn, it feels fresh to see her portray amazingly a complex and different character. Shirley MacLaine is excellent if not better than Hepburn in this movie.
The more impressive is to see the commitment that Wyler had for this story, he already directed it in the 1930s with the name of These Three. He was unsatisfied with his adaptation that was also a victim of the code Hays. He decided to pay homage to the true story and adapt it again.
This movie can now be a little bit hard to find, it was not very popular upon its release, but you won't regret your efforts.
Jojo Rabbit (2019)
Review - Jojo Rabbit
I actually liked how they portrayed the events from the perspective of a child. Jojo has a great narrative arc, he evolves a lot throughout the movie, especially after the death of his mother, but also through his complex relationship with Elsa. Sometimes he has a great difficulty to guess if he is feeling loved or friendship towards her, it really portrays the bunch of emotions that a young adolescent like him could go through.
Of course, Taika Waititi is an excellent director that has the talent to capture comic scenes in his movie and to write interesting and likable characters.
Finally, this movie is probably not as historically accurate as you would like and can be very divisive due to his type of humor, but give it a try.
Blow Out (1981)
For Neo Noir fans
This movie seems to be forgotten, it has only 41k votes and a 7.4. I think that the critics on Metascore got it right this time, this movie is a pure masterpiece. I particularly find interesting the framing and the use of that blood red in almost every scene. The red is an excellent color in cinema, it draws attention and in someway the color and itself as an immense impact in creating emotions.
Furthermore, the movie is composed of a very clever and effective storyline. However, the dialogues are like roller-coaster some are excellent as the last line of the movie others are simply average and forgettable.
Finally, I could describe this movie as a surprising neo-noir. It is not in anybody's cinema book, but still had an unexpected influence on movies like Nightcrawler in 2014.
Dolphin Tale (2011)
Review - Dolphin Tale
I dislike this sage so much, I don't want to repeat my precedent review, but this one is not different from the sequel, it is boring and every emotion seems faked.
However, you will get what you expect, this is for sure another cash begging feel-good movie about a disabled animal.
I'm pretty sure that the only good think about this movie is that it encouraged charity.
Dolphin Tale 2 (2014)
Review - Dolphin Tale 2
This is such a stupid flick, there is not a lot to say about it, the plot is repetitive and the complicity between the actors is not credible.
Overall, a pretty bad/average movie, that you wouldn't want to watch, I was trying to find some qualities, but nothing is popping in my head. However, this kind of movie is simple and interesting enough for a kid.
Little Women (2019)
Review - Little Women (2019)
I'm not certain of how much it is faithful to the book, but I appreciated this film. There are multiples great performances, the story is deep, but most importantly, it is realistic and relevant still today. It is the kind of stories that will always be up to date.
However, the viewer can be disoriented, during the major part, the timeline is not specified, you have to watch it entirely to understand.
It also gets critical on the code of literature back in the day, which is satisfying.
Furthermore, according to me, there is too way to watch this movie, you can watch it as it is, an historical/romance chronic of the past, but you can also watch it as I did, like an essay on our society depicted as an epic movie.
Review - Antz
This is supreme level boring, the animation is just so horrible, you don't feel their emotions, even in HD, the film looks like a torrent.
Plus, who wants to see giant talking ants on his TV?!!
The dialogues are so horrible, I have a net impression the screenwriter chose his words by Scrabble.
Don't watch this, they didn't even take the time to spell the title correctly.
Camping 2 (2010)
Review - Camping 2
This movie is simply bad. OK, I have to admit that I laughed once, but if I include that everything is disappointing, the jokes are repetitive and brings a feeling of déjà vu. The cast is composed of very basic actors who don't seem to give their best. If you ask me, this movie is a sequel that no one deserved and that no one wanted.
Review - El Camino
The movie is mainly relying on fan service. There is a lot of flashback and it often brings characters from the series. The vague ending of the series shouldn't have been retouch by this movie, I would have prefer if it was a movie that didn't affect our perception of the series' ending.
To resume it, this movie is not bad, but it is unnecessary
In the Heat of the Night (1967)
Review - In the Heat of the Night
Excellent a relevant movie that is also a perfect mix between interesting mystery/thriller and political debate. This movie is one of those which took the lead in the fight for equality, it is one of the first to feature a strong black character in a job that was almost restricted to white men at this time.
Each performance is amazing and driven by a great screenplay. Sometimes characters can be cliché, but in a vast majority of the scenes they are actually nuanced, this movie doesn't include the stereotype of the "Bad Cop", it simply shows different and well-explained perspective.
This is definitely a movie that is great in every way, and that you should watch for a multitude of reasons.
Review - Ray (2004)
The movie is too strict on the codes of the genre. Once again, it follows the same Storytelling arc with the same themes about tragic childhood, drug/alcohol issues, and marital issues. This movie is not innovative, and you are dulled pretty fast.
Plus, the supporting actors don't feel authentic in their roles, it looks like they all play a different emotion of the same character to fill the blank spaces. Only Jamie Foxx is interpretation is good, but I wouldn't say that it was worthy of an Academy Award.
Also, the music looks thrown way to do ellipsis, it ruined the narration not to mention that the CGI transitions are dated and look cringe today.
Finally, I don't recommend that you watch this movie, there is so music movies like this. When you have watched one, you have watched all of them.
The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
A Masterpiece of Universal's Monster
According, to me it is the best movie of the "Universal's Monster" collection. The storytelling is definitely better than in other movies, I think that the sound helped, but also, it is focusing only on a short and very specific story. Also, I love how this movie remained faithful to the style of the previous movie without repeating the same thematic, this one is definitely more existential and sadder. It brings a strong and iconic scene where the Monster realizes that even the Bride hates him, you can see a tear on his eye before he pulls the switch. Also, it seems apparent that the whole crew and cat had fun while doing the movie, there is so many crazy credits, for me, it is a plus, it shows that a real artistic effort was put to make this movie unique and not simply another cash-making sequel.
In conclusion, you shouldn't watch this movie only to complete the "Universal's Monster" collection. I recommend that you watch it simply because it is a very great movie, and personally because I think that it is better than the first installment.
Sweet Smell of Success (1957)
Review - Sweet Smell of Sucess
This is one of the rare movie where you can't who is the bad guy even after thinking for a long time after it is over. This is simply because this movie feels so real. Each character have strong and and well-written motivation and the directing style doesn't allow you to guess which one was the real villain. In the "real life", you have the same thing, no one is either completely or bad or completely good the reality is between that and it is a matter of perception. The movie really well captured that. The film concludes on a completely unpredictable and ironic ending, I could almost say that after watching the movie you will lose the notion of good/evil.
Basically, I highly recommend it, it may not be the most action or mystery paced film-noir, but it is one of the most intelligent.
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
Review - Kill Bill: Vol 2
Unlike his predecessor, this movie is more axed toward the drama than the action. The identity of Bill has revealed very quickly in the movie and on a certain aspect, the movie lost a part of his glamorous spirit.
While I appreciate this touch of drama, I have some criticizes to do regarding the flashbacks, this flashback scenes like in many movies of Quentin Tarantino are what I call "Facilitated screenwriting" in other words they explain quickly a concept with the only purpose of making the rest seemingly coherent to the view, except that these sequences are mainly based on an over explanatory storytelling that Tarantino attempted to attenuate by using humor.
Some scenes are however are simply masterpieces, I can take to illustrate my point, the final confrontation between The Bride and Bill. In this scene, Bill asks Beatrix if she felt satisfaction after killing her victims, to that she answers "yes", but in her eyes, you can see remorse. Maybe I'm over-interpreting it, but as I see it, it was a self-criticism at the violence in Tarantino's movies. He wants to highlight that all those outrageously violent scenes are for him a "guilty pleasure". The movie has a lot of self-references or homage which adds to the films if you have seen other Tarantino movies.
Other than that this is basically a movie cut in two parts, so It wouldn't be reasonable to give a different rating to one or another. This mainly why I gave it an 8.
To conclude, I recommend the Kill Bill Saga, and it might be one of Tarantino's most complex and entertaining artwork.
Mad Max (1979)
Review - Mad Max
First, The villains are excellent, their motivations aren't obvious which obviously is not usually a good point, but in this case, you can assume that their only goal is to cause pain. This makes them only more despicable, and that is a good point for an action movie. The movie contains some pretty innovative concepts in terms of car chases that would later be developed to their full potential in Mad Max: Fury Road. However, even with all those good aspects and the pretty entertaining story, you can't deny that the screenplay of this movie is pure garbage, it contains only a few bad lines of dialog and the story while as I said entertaining is simply a pretext for a revenge plot.
To conclude, I recommend this movie for the entertaining aspect and the cultural impact that it had especially in Australia, but avoid it if you expect a movie with a strongly coherent plot.
