Not as problematic as I expected, which is high praise, I think.
There are some tired tropes in play, unfortunately. Best supporting cast member to Emilia Clarke's eyebrows.
Be prepared to overlook some practicalities such as the feasibility of operating a powered chair on a dry sandy beach, and inconsistencies regarding body temperature regulation; plus the ability of a small woman being able to maneuver a tetraplegic man to and from his chair and beds, chairs etc. I verge on…
Imagine Wes Anderson walked right off the reservation and never looked back. The first half is stronger: its stilted dialogue, naturally lit character moments and unsubtle metaphors are bleakly hilarious, but when the action shifts from the hotel to the great outdoors, we get to the real theatre of absurdity. A singular vision in all senses of the word.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I really liked this film. I thought it was tense and exciting and best of all contained less car-chase silliness than the previous two. Even Bourne driving off the roof of a car park and walking away seemed believable after Furious 7. In my heart I prefer action films to star Vin Diesel and The Rock, but this was good. I'm glad I finally watched it :)
Since I watched this with my 9-month-old son (pictured: i.imgur.com/TOR6Kt5.jpg), I will let him review the six parts of this anthology film.
1. "Saint-Germain-des-Prés" Directed by Jean Douchet
Completely transfixed. I sat in my Dad's lap the whole time. There were a lot of pretty colors.
2 ."Gare du Nord" Directed by Jean Rouch
I was so mad at my Dad for making me watch another goddamn French movie where attractive young people bitch about how awful marriage is and…
Germans are reputed to have both a weird sense of humour and a weird relationship with the events of world war 2. It's hard to say whether this film is clever satire, silly satire, silly comedy or a dumb time travel movie.
Hitler dies in the fuhrer bunker, and wakes up 70 years later in modern Berlin. After a confusing and poorly acted couple of days he realises that his war effort has been delayed and there is a lot…
When I was an agoraphobic psychotic 13 year old in 1987, my most prized possession was a VHS tape I had made myself by recording David Cronenberg's The Fly and Aliens off of HBO. I watched those movies over and over. I barely went to school that fall. I had not finished the end of 7th Grade because incarcerated in a for-profit psychiatric hospital for children, let out to go to an academic summer program, which was a bad idea…
just over four years ago, in my senior year of high school, i was driving home from my part-time job (a particularly mundane shift from what i can remember), speeding down the local hwy-35 trying to get home as fast as possible so i could maybe finish watching a movie before i needed to get some sleep. it couldn't have been any later than 11pm but it was dark & dreary enough that my mind keeps trying to convince me it…
Why can't I give a movie zero stars? It's a shame, because this movie, if you can even call it that, is unequivocal shit. Whilst watching this, I had to take multiple breaks to listen to TED talks just to make sure intelligence wasn't leaking away from my brain entirely.
This movie follows three douchebags, douchebag #1, douchebag #2, and Russian douchebag. None of them are funny, and if the people of my generation truly find this funny, you have…
Watched to finish the quadrilogy. Not bad, not great though. Some interesting twists, but somewhat predictable and foreshadowed in part 1.
1. Why do we have shitty, blueprint holograms in sci-fi in the future? Is there no other kind of mapping device where we can't have retina resolution? Gimme the Google Maps holo machine.
2. The "mutts" we're essentially the same peeps from The Descent right? Blind, albino, humanoids.
Okay, a third thing: I felt like I was matching The Maze Runner 1. All these tween book adaptations are starting to blur.
I loved this movie. It caught me in the right mood, I guess. My wife thought it was great too, but she couldn't quite be as enthusiastic about it as I.
There is a lot wrong, technically. Continuity issues, some almost inexcusable overacting, and some very silly characters. I think that's why my wife decided it didn't quite hit the spot. It's why I can't give it five stars.
However, the tear-jerking, understated and note-perfect performance from Sam Neill was…
This is a pretty bonkers film, and should probably be viewed as an extended music video for an avant-guard, neo-jefferson-airplane, drug-culture trance band.
I think the main gist of the film is that all the depressed people in the modern world are really victims of a kidnapper who uses parasitic mind-controlling maggots to hypnotise them into giving him all their savings, and then uses them as hosts for new parasitic mind controlling maggots, which he then transplants into pigs so…
