Mirai no Mirai (2018)
It could have been better!
This is my least favorite Mamoru Hosoda film.
I like the premise but the end result is not that good. It didn't really work as it should have. There is a lot of heart, but it lacks a decent pacing and felt like a blend of disjointed ideas thrown together.
The worst part: The main character's voice. It was annoying, high pitched, and it almost drove me nuts. He doesn't even sound like a kid. The voice actress should have been better cast.
The best part 1: The great-grandparent story was interesting, intense and highly emotional.
The best part 2: The ending scene with the montage and the flying scene.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch (2021)
No, no, from a Star Wars fan
I really can't get past the awful animation. Feels like I'm watching a 90's videogame. The animation is not fluid and the characteres show no emotion whatsoever. Dead eyes all around. The voice acting is sub-par, the characteres are uninteresting, and the story is generic and more of the same. No thanks.
Gone with the Wind (1939)
Flawed, dated, but a classic nonetheless!
1 - I didn't see anyhting wrong with it. Politically correct has gone to the extreme. I have my ideals and convictions, but too much is just too much. This is a movie held as a classic, based on a classic of world literature, telling a fictional story that takes place in a specific era of US history. That's it.
2 - The movie is dated. Acting, soundtrack, certain parts of the script; it all may have worked back in 1939. Not anymore.
3 - I loved the cinematography and the complexity of the story and the characters. Clark Gable was amazing as the morally ambiguous Rhett Butler. Vivien Leigh was great, though I couldn't feel at times she went OTT, but I guess that's due to the (slightly unnatural) way of acting of the era. The first 90 minutes were a solid 5 stars. Then it started to drag a little bit. The final 30 minutes or so were amazing.
Overall conclusion: It's not a perfect movie, dated, a product of its time, but it is a a great movie nonetheless. A classic everyone should watch at least once in the life.
Fisshu sutôrî (2009)
Brilliant! A series of unrelated characters and events, spanning 34 years, following some kind of butterfly effect allied to the seven degrees of separation, that end in saving the world from a comet. That final sequence is priceless.
A big pile of steaming Sh t!
I will use the same vulgar and careless language as the movie.
What the f ck did i just watch? I like genre cinema, be it sci-fi, horror, surrealism, fantasy, a.o, but this is a big pile of steaming sh t. There are some good ideas, but the directing is atrocious, with lots of shaky camera to hide the clumsiness of the directors, and absurd frameworks that not even the great Jess Franco would use (but the spanish director knew what he was doing, there is a big difference). And, let's talk about the cast ... the fewer skills and the more over-the-top you can be ... the better. It's a shame because Carloto Cotta is an above average actor and is being underused in this abysmal sh t. Despite having some good ideas (I liked the fuzzy dogs) and some interesting sequences, this fails roundly. I don't think I will ever give the benefit of the doubt to these directors. This is, speaking in pure, hard and raw terms, a beautiful sh t in 3 acts.
Men in Black: International (2019)
Nevermind the negative reviews
I don't really care about negative reviews. I'm glad because all the negative reviews this has didn't impede me from watching it.
MIB:I was as fun as the original MIB.
What were people expecting this to be? The new Citizen Kane? Vertigo? Seven Samurai?
This is a mindless action comedy blockbuster. That's it.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were great. We have special appearences by Liam Neeson and the amazing Emma Thompson. Lots of action, humour and fun. It was better than MIB3, that's for sure.
I enjoyed and wouldn't mind having a sequel. Pawny has to be there, of course.
Po di Sangui (1996)
Spirituality and tradition in an African village
The first film I watched by Flora Gomes was "Nha Fala" and I truly enjoyed it. I was anxious to see more of the director and "Po di Sangui" was one of the titles I had on my watchlist. Unfortunately, the copy of the film I got was dubbed in French. Oh, that awful french dubbing! The little girl is cute and beautifully innocent, but the dubbing attributed to her is especially annoying. This took some of the impact the film could have had. I hope to be able to rewatch this someday in the original kriolu.
Apart from this unfortunate detail, I thoroughly enjoyed "Po di Sangui". It is a beautiful film about tradition, spirituality, being one with the land, and a social commentary on the destruction of nature by modern society. Rather than telling us a story with beginning, middle and end, Gomes shows us everything as if we are being told a folk-tale by an elder. Beautiful cinematography complemented with an interesting and enjoyable blend of nature sounds and african rhythms, mystical images and a thin line between reality and dreams are the key ingredients for an amazing and heartfelt work by Gomes.
I will remove one star because of the goddammned french dubbing. As soon as I have the opportunity to watch it in the original kriolu, I'm pretty sure 10 stars will be awarded.
