Willy's Wonderland (2021)
Deadly Muppets Face Off the Silent Janitor
Out of the dozen films Nicolas Cage stars in every year, one or two are actually decent. This one would be one of them, there is no doubt that Cage is a talented actor who once did only meaningful films, it's a shame how he just let his career take a turn by starring in only B-movies. But this one in spite of many bad things like the silly story, uninteresting supporting cast, the weird looking animatronic puppets, only Cage's character and performance stand out. First of all, he does something quite unusual from his other usual films, he never speaks, so he's all about using his facial expressions of an angry man who drinks a lot of energy drink cans, and kills the deadly puppets while still keeping to his word to clean Willy's Wonderland so that he can get his car back. There is also a cool song with the movie's title. Overall, the movie is better that I expected, and it all thanks to the one and only Cage.
2 Broke Girls (2011)
Offensive and not funny
I watched this show from start till finish, but sadly it just keeps repeating the same offensive, disgusting and off-putting jokes over and over, that there isn't really nothing new to offer. The story is about the waitress Max who takes in the spoiled girl Caroline whose father went to jail for some embezzlement scheme, and she's now broke. Caroline lives with Max in her crappy apartment and works with her at the same diner, and hangs out with her with the rest of the miserable diner staff. As they're both down on their luck, Caroline pushes Max to take a chance and save money to open a cupcake business, and they go through various ventures, until they finally open a dessert bar. As for Max who's played by Kat Dennings, she keeps saying endless jokes about how she had a terrible childhood and a poor life, that it gets to the point where you can't take it anymore, also Caroline keeps telling jokes about how she lost all her riches and ended up in this terrible situation. What's more repulsive is how all the cast keep telling insulting jokes about the diner owner Han, making fun of his appearance, his shape, and his race. Another disgusting element is Olag, the diner cook who thinks he's a women magnet and keeps saying sexual disgsuting jokes. From the strange and unbelievable things in the show is how the character Sophie marries Olag, and manages to give birth while she's in her 50s!!!! Another weird thing is how Caroline ended up with an average guy, while Max ended up with an older rich man who seems very much different from her. What is also strange is how Max kept talking about how she never knew her father, and how her mother abandoned her, but they both never showed up once, even though there were episodes when they were meant to appear, but they didn't !!! In conclusion, the good parts of this show are ruined by all the uncomfortable conversations and scenes that were meant to be funny, but they were anything but. Real comedy comes from convincing story, and characters who have heart, not insulting and badly written jokes. Finally I was wondering if any waitress in real life ever wears a skirt so incredibly short like the one Caroline used to wear !!!!!
Such a disappointment
As being an Egyptian, I was curious to see this film, since it's very rare to see a foreign movie that depicts Middle East, without the usual stereotype of Arabs being terrorists or still riding camels!!! Sadly this film missed a great opportunity, to use the majestic and historical setting of Luxor to convey any meaningful story of any kind. I don't know what the filmmaker Zeina Durra had in mind when she wanted to make this film, but this is really very pointless and forgettable. Despite the beautiful scenery of Pharaonic monuments and the breathtaking nile view, there is no story. The lead actress Andrea Riseborough walks around in oversized cloth through Luxor and running into an old flame, and that's it. Also her recent films this year (The Grudge, Possessor) she's been doing the same vague and depressed person who feels lifeless and cold. Karim Saleh was okay, but since there is no story and meaningful script, his character doesn't have much to go with. All the situations taking place don't serve any purpose, and are unrelated to anything else. But I do have to say, that the director conveyed a true picture of Luxor, without any exaggeration or fake elements, except for some notes, like when the two lead characters sometimes walk into a temple, and it's like they're completely alone, usually there have to be other tourists walking around. Also when Sultan's character was talking to his Egyptian coworker, why does she speak to him in English!!! I wish this film was worthy of the place it was shot in, but sadly it failed in achieving any meaningful thing, except showing the beauty of Luxor to those who aren't familiar with it.
Let Them All Talk (2020)
When i saw the trailer of this movie, i looked forward to seeing it, since it has three leading legends in it. It also had a nice Titanic vibe to it, since most of the film takes place on a huge fancy ship. But throughout the film, it felt like it wasn't a film at all, it was just the daily routine of the three lady friends, and the young man accompanying them. It felt very long and tiring to watch almost two hours of this. The ending also was quite surprising, and when it was over, it didn't feel any good at all. I feel it was such a waste of talent, and i am very surprised that it was directed by Steven Soderbergh, it felt very different from his previous movies. I guess the approach of letting the actors improvise, has really not been a good call here. I didn't feel like there was any message that needed to be said here, just a bunch of unimportant and boring situations. But what i loved the most was the Queen Mary ship, now that is the modern version of Titanic, it's like a world of its own, what an experience it must be to sail on it.
The Stand In (2020)
Not a comedy, not anything
Up until the first half of the film, I kept waiting for any comedy scene that might come up. But after the first half I realized that this is definitely not a comedy. Since Drew Barrymore has been known for doing many romantic comedies, I thought this one will be one of them. Even though this idea of switching places have been done before many times, the idea of the film about a movie star with anger management issue, as she steps out of the spotlight and becomes a recluse, is interesting in a way. It's very poorly executed. Mainly it's because it's very hard to sympathize with either characters, Candy black is very mean and foulmouthed, and her stand-in who seemed like a nice person at first, turned out to be an opportunist, who wants to steal her identity and become a movie star herself. I guess the only normal character was Michael Zegen, except the weird story he tells about the Nazi incident !!!! Also in what world is the stand-in supposed to be an exact copy of Candy Black, with her obvious change in her nose, and why does she speaks in this weird tone of voice?? Drew Barrymore is a lovely actress, but this film is very bad on some many levels. What a waste of talent for great supporting actors like T.J. Miller, Ellie Kemper and Holland Taylor. Now that we know it's not a comedy, I wish i could say it's a drama, or a thriller, but it's also not that.
Evil Eye (2020)
Blumhouse TV needs help
When i first heard about the Blumhouse TV project, and the four new movies that will be released in October, i was excited, since Blumhouse has a history of making mostly cool horror movies, with the most recent one being The Invisible Man. I saw the first three films: Black Box, The Lie and Nocturne, and i was hugely disappointed, but i guess they saved the worst for last with this one. First of all it feels like all four movies have been done by the same writer/ director. Even same running time: 1h :30 min. All have poor story, poor acting, poor everything. They all seem very rushed, without any depth whatsoever. In this one, it's basically about a mother and daughter talking over the phone for the most part of the film, like don't you have other stuff to do in your life??? The leading actress Sunita Mani who played the daughter, i liked her in the movie Save Yourselves, she was a lot of fun, here she's like another person, with too much makeup all the time, even when she's in bed sleeping!!! Mostly i feel bad for Blumhouse, cause this is definitely below their previous work, and if the next four films in this project with Amazon are anything like those films, then it's a big mistake to make them.
When i saw the trailer of this film, i thought it looks like the movie "Get Out" but with a girl instead, plus the cast looks very promising, all awesome stars. I wasn't familiar with the novel it was based on, but it seems that i should've been more aware with it first. As the story starts out with a girl ( who doesn't have a name) that goes with her boyfriend to his parents' house during a snowstorm. It would make you think that the rest of the story would be at his family's house, who seem very weird, and all the unexpected things that would happen between them and their son's new girlfriend. Instead what actually happens are a series of unexplained things, like how the parents keep changing in age, switching between being very old and middle-aged, and how the girl suddenly sees herself alone in the house. Then the second half of this painful experience, is on their way back home, were new set of bizzare things take place, like seeing another couple appear instead of them, and how they end up at a high school that's covered in snow, and then the finale which also doesn't make any sense at all. My question is, can all novels be adapted into films, the answer have to be NO. and this film is the biggest example, and after knowing about the novel, iit seems that few changes have been made especially at the end, which could've helped in explaining some things of this very vague story. The saddest thing though is how this great cast was totally wasted in one of the strangest films i've seen. It's really disappointing, cause i imagined this film to be something really great, instead all i found was 2 hours of pure weirdness.
All Together Now (2020)
Sorta like hard to believe, but has a good message.
In spite of the being very hard to believe, i mean a mother and her daughter live in a school bus, and the girl sleeping on a bench and refusing anyone to help her, and she remains strangely happy, but the final part of the film had a good message to tell, about letting the people who care about you, give you a hand when you need it the most. But it was a little hard identifying with the story with this strange events, usually people ask for help when they really need it, while the lead character Amber doesn't believe in that.
The fact that Amber only sang one song" Feels like home", while she could've at least sang another one at the talent show , makes no sense and is such a lost opportunity. She did such a great job in "Moana" and it was nice seeing her here in a live action film, but sadly the script wasn't that good. But the cast did a good job, and Carol Burnett was a special addition to the team.
Viena and the Fantomes (2020)
What a waste.
To start telling the story of this film, would be useless because there is no story. If you can a girl who hangs out with the members of a band in their trailer in the middle of nowhere a story. I don't think there is one single good thing to say about it, in spite of the group of talents in it, the script is beyond bad, so it's just a complete waste of time.
Nadie Sabe Que Estoy Aquí (2020)
Good idea wasted
The story of an introvert man who's living with his uncle in an isolated sheep farm, while living in a fantasy of being on stage singing, as he has a beautiful voice but lacks the appearance that goes with it. The idea is interesting, but the execution wasn't, from the slow boring pace of the film, through the depressing feeling you get while watching it till the weird ending. The location of the film was amazing, beautiful scenery, the original song that is also the title of the film is good, the performance by Jorge Garcia was good but overall it's quite disappointing.
The Meg (2018)
Big shark,bigger action
I am so surprised by the low rating the film got on IMDB(5.2),it's so unjustified.
In spite being almost two hours,it remained interesting and exciting. Even though Statham is the star,the rest of the cast were solid actors and gave good performance. Maybe there was not enough chemistry between him and the lead actress but it's okay. Visually it was amazing,with the cool gadgets and devices under water. The story was pretty decent for an action movie. There were some funny scenes as well. The part on the beach brings back memories from Jaws movie. It was pretty fun to watch and very entertaining.
Support the Girls (2018)
The Worst support
I didn't expect much from this film,but the poster kinda reminded me of the movie Coyote Ugly,because of the whole girls in a bar thing. But i guess one of the golden rules of watching any movie,if it doesn't get interesting in the first 30 minutes,then it's gonna be lame. This one is no exception. It's really bad,bad acting, bad screenplay,so boring. I just felt bad for everyone involved in making it,and for watching it too.
The 15:17 to Paris (2018)
I know i deserve it,when i decided to see this movie,in spite of the low rating,but i love Clint Eastwood and his work as a director has been amazing,but this one was anything but. Even though it was only an hour and a half,but i was bored out of my mind. During the film,i was telling myself,was this a documentary,it must be because there is no way this is an actual film,not with these actors. Then after watching it,i found out that these are the actual people from the attack. Now my question,why did they agree to do it,where was Eastwood's mind when he cast them,and during filming he didn't feel that this was a giant mistake!!!!! The film is so boring,and almost all the events happening are so unimportant. Only the last 15 minutes barely make you interested. The bottom line,not every book based on a real story ,needs to be turned into a movie. They did a heroic thing,they wrote a book about it,let it go in peace. Really shocked and disappointed from this bad experience.
You Were Never Really Here (2017)
You really don't get it
I can never understand why some directors like to make films that are so vague and strange. This one is no different. i had high hopes for this film,knowing that Joaquin Phoenix was in it,and how you can feel this strong bond between him and the little girl made it more interesting. But it's truly disappointing how the director Lynne Ramsay who also wrote the screenplay,chose to bring it that way. I can hardly even understand what each actor is saying, and the fact that each one only speaks few words fro start to finish is so strange. I have'net read the book,but i hardly think it's with no dialogue like the film!! The lead character played by Phoenix is so torn apart and confused,that you can't even imagine that he's real. The first 25 minutes,you are struggling to understand what is going on, and you barley understand by the end,given that no one actually talk. The performance of Phoenix and the little girl was great,but it didn't save this movie from the poor narrating style and the lack of dialogue. i really wonder how it might be like,if it was directed differently. Maybe then we could actually be really here.
Certain Women (2016)
Don't see it
I like to see independent films,they have certain charm to them,they talk about personal things,without any showing off or big budget stuff in the big productions. But when it comes to this film, i failed to see the purpose to it. So all the leading characters are women,great then what. Sadly nothing,it's painful to see how much slow and boring it is. And you keep waiting for the big reveal ,the one that will make all this meaningless stories finally make sense. but that never happens as well. I mean what's the connection between the four women,what's so special about them,why are we watching them. No clue. I guess not all the independent films are worth seeing,this one is no exception.
Into the Woods (2014)
Too much woods is not good
I am a big fan of musicals. And I was excited to see this movie cause of the interesting cast. but what I didn't like in the film is that even though it had lots of songs none of them were good enough to stick In your head. I don't know why,maybe it's because there's too much words in the songs. what I liked was how they combined more than one fairy tale in one story . that was interesting how they mixed jack and the beanstalk,red Riding Hood,cinderlla and repenzenl all In one. but it's very disappointing how Johnny Depp only appeared in one scene. about the cast,we'll It's not bad,meryl strepp was good as the crazy witch and the Baker and his wife were good as a couple. And the boy playing jack is really talented as he was in the Les Miserables as well . though it's really hard to compare the two films.also it was a little too long. But all in all it's not that great.
The Blue Elephant (2014)
This type of genre is nothing new In American movies but In the Egyptian cinema it's quite a surprise. The beginning of the film Is something seen in many films about someone accused of murder and being checked by a psychiatrist. The ironic thing is that the doctor whose job is to treat the mentally insane is messed up just as much as his patients. and even though this doctor seems to destroy everything he touches,you still feel that there is hope left In him. What happens after that is very hard to explain, it can only be seen . and that's what's special about this film,it's visually entertaining . The story ending might be strange and you might have many questions unanswered. but good films usually leave you wondering like that. Very good cast and amazing direction. And as was said in the film there's a fine line between what's real and what's not and what makes you want to cross that line Is curiosity. Egyptian cinema Is back to life with this film.
The Single Moms Club (2014)
Until now no movie has ever come close to the first wives club to talk about single wives In a nice simple and moving way. and this one is so depressing and
boring. such bad acting and bad dialougs Tyler Perry's movies keeps getting more awful. such waste of time. I was stuck for two hours watching really bad movie On the laptop. The actors in the film were at their worst ever.
very bad combination if actors they completely don't fit together. very lame story. Terrible in every way. such naiive and stupid story. I couldn't wait for it to be over.
Spring Breakers (2012)
one of the worst movies ever mad
To cut this short ,this is one of the most ridiculous movies i have ever seen,and the only question i have is why did James Franco do this film, i honestly don't know. but i felt sick watching it. Kept thinking it might get better after a while,but it only got worse.It felt like amateurs did this movie.Horrible everything,not one good thing i can possibly say about it . i hate it so bad i feel disappointed.i should have known from looking at the posters that it was gonna be a lousy film. But i thought maybe there is something interesting in it but i was so wrong. it sucks so much,it is a very bad experience that i want to forget and erase.
Greatness all the way
It's been a while since i really felt that moved by a movie,and i'm a Zemicks fan since Forrest GUMP,so it came as no surprise that he would deliver that great piece of art,i was taken by this film from start to end even though it's more than 2 hours,you just wanted it to keep going. From the crash of the plane ,you feel like you are actually inside the plane yourself,to the many struggles of Washington with his inner demons,and every time you think he finally was able to beat those inner demons,you get mistaken,but the end makes you believe in him once again. as underneath that surface of a careless drunk hopeless man,there lies a hero who just needed to have his faith back. There are no words to describe how breath taking Washington is,his talent is overwhelming,so amazing. The last scene is bound to make you cry,as it shows when Washington IS FINALLY FREE. The soundtrack is classic rock,all the cast were great,especially don cheadle,great music,wonderful story of how one could lose his way and drift so far off track,but he manages to pick himself back up and confront himself with the truth he spends his whole life running from. Just one of the finest movies ever.
