  • Hereafter (2010, Clint Eastwood) 3/5
    image
    Even when Eastwood directs a bad movie, it is still interesting and moving. It's cliché, soppy, melodramatic, but it kept my attention (maybe because I enjoy the subject). It could be much better, though. Some sequences are really embarassing, and the ending is one of the worst of the past years. Although, the subway and the tsunami scenes are mind blowing. It has been hard saying words about it. It's, indeed, a weird piece of filmmaking.

    Toy Story 3 - 4/4

    One of the best movies of 2010. The animation is flawless and Pixar's storytelling is excellent as always in this story about growing up and doing what's best for the common good.

    I don't agree, but I did like HTTYD. Here are my thoughts (posted over at another forum May 2010):

    How to Train Your Dragon - 7.5/10

    Cute and heart-warming story, though a little stale and unoriginal. The animation is top-notch all along, but this is to be expected nowadays. The rides on the dragon give you an adrenaline rush and resemble the landscape of Pandora and the feeling of Harry's flight with Buckbeak in PoA. The relationship between the viking and the friendly and intelligent dragon Toothless, who actually reminded me of Buckbeak, is well developed and charming. It seemed forced though
    Spoiler
    how fast the other apprentices changed their minds regarding the dragons when the film picked up.
    End of spoiler.
    But this is absolutely a good family film from DreamWorks!

    When will you realize that your ratings are worthless without elaboration, Baseball? I honestly think you don't take film criticism seriously.

    believe for the most part critics shouldn't do much more then give an overall impression. Like just enough to indicate whether they think it's worthwhile or not and perhaps very briefly where the strengths/weakness lie and then people can form their own detailed opinions once they see it. So I'm just giving you a quick measure of the quality of the different aspects and an overall verdict. I find no need to elaborate.
    Do you agree with how I handle my fully written reviews?

    Of course not and you are a known contrarion so I wouldn't even take a briefly written review seriously either, lol
    Your ad hominems are astounding (surely a man of your education level would know what that is). You still continue to hold the completely illogical view that having a contrary opinion is negative. Apparently I have to conform to what the masses enjoy to be taken seriously. What's wrong with having a thought-out opposing opinion? Oh, that's right. I have to suck Chris Nolan's cock as much as you. I have to admit that he's a genius and love every bit of poorly-written female characters that erupt from his pen. Just admit that you think I'm a contrarian because I dislike his work and be done with it.

    Hah, except it's not just Nolan. That's where your greatest offense lies sure, but there's plenty of others you take the Armond White approach on.
    Would you mind giving more names? Would you also explain why having an opposing opinion is bad? Here's the problem as I see it: you'd rather attack me personally than address my criticisms of Nolan and whoever else I happen to dislike or my opinions on director's I love (Michael Bay). Perhaps they make your brain overload so much that even the healers at St. Mungos can't even mend it, or you just don't know what to say in response. I can easily turn the tables on you: I shouldn't take your opinions encompassing every film you see seriously because you can't gasp the opening to 2001.

    Please, please honor my request.

    I like Anne Hathway too :] I especially liked her in this one movie that I can't remember the name of.. she acts as a 20 year old girl that gets out of rehab to attend her older sister's wedding...

    I left the movie theater totally disturbed and I didn't know what I thought of the movie. For me, there are a lot of philosophical, religious and existentials questions that are really interesting to discuss. Lars Von Trier has this interesting concept that the nature is evil and we're only here by randomness and accident. He explore this subject in Melancholia too. I highly recommend it! :D

    I agree Henrick. Though it had gory scenes, it was different from the usual gory movies in that it probed the very existence of us, morality and the concept of God...some truly deep and disturbing questions were posed. I barely managed to watch the film completely. It was a shocking yet fascinating, flabbergasting yet out-of-this-world experience.

    By the way, Melancholia is not shocking, but once again, he deals with some many interesting questions. It's amazing how he goes through depression discussions. You have to watch it!! :D

    Unfortunately most of the people saw only "porn" and "gore" in Antichrist, rather than looking beyond.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes was terrific.... I was very hesitant to go, but wow, Ceasar was a real boss! Didn't care for Franco's flat performance, but everyone else was solid. The CGI in this film was nearly seamless, and deserves an Oscar nod.

    Not nearly as bad as critics made it
    out to be. The film's got style and
    a nice performance by Amanda Seyfried.
    Yes, the script was quite bland, but
    the twist at the end was great!

    + The Cinematography was quite
    breathtaking at times. Daggerhorn
    looked beautiful- the medieval essence
    was captured perfectly.




    THE LION KING 3D 100%

    This was just a huge reminder of
    why this used to be my favourite
    film when I was an infant.

    A must-see movie. James Franco gives his best performance yet. Warning: It's a bit claustrophobic. Some audience had nauseatic experience (myself included)
