Revenge (II) (2017)
7/10
Coralie Fargeat's first feature film written and directed.
25 December 2020
If you are looking for a French-made revenge movie that is bloody and far from logic, with a beautiful cinematography and color palette accompanied by electronic music.

Little-known important facts about The Dark Knight Trilogy.
25 December 2020
Warning: Spoilers
The worst villain of The Dark Knight Rises, the third movie, is actually one of Batman's fierce enemies; He would become The Riddler, known for his extreme intelligence, superb puzzles, and escape expertise. Johnny Depp or Leonardo DiCaprio was considered for the lead role, so the 2nd movie was set according to this plan. But unfortunately plans have changed, the reason is at the end.

In The Dark Knight, the main villain Joker has made it clear that he is a rabid dog and hates plans. So who are the dozens of clever plans that start with the detailed heist plan at the beginning of the movie?

"I am the agent of chaos," says the Joker. Here he states that he is the agent of The Riddler.

In the film, if the Joker is not going to talk about himself, that is, if he is going to talk to a community, if he is going to talk about something related to the plan, he always reads from a piece of paper, tries to remember his memorization, looks at the clock. This gives him the idea that the plans and conversations are given by someone.

The Riddler is the person who haunted Gotham to measure Batman's limits, learn about his secret identity, and eliminate him. The big plan behind the Joker in The Dark Knight belongs to The Riddler, and the Joker is actually directed by The Riddler.

When Heath Ledger dies, the entire Rises scenario is reset, while the lead villain will be The Riddler, he suddenly becomes Bane, the lead roles change.

In my opinion, the main reason for the cancellation is that the Joker in the 2nd movie is excessive and loved. Since The Riddler is a smarter character than the Joker, the idea was shelved so that the Joker's charisma in film 2 was not destroyed.

I wish we could see this wonderful character instead of Bane in the 3rd movie.

Colin Farrel is awesome again!
25 December 2020
I think I am one of the few people in the world to be a fan of this movie. His theatrical acting, epic scenes, and lyrical expression impressed me very much. I wasn't bored for a moment for 3.5 hours.

Christian Bale has done a great job as always.
25 December 2020
Ford v Ferrari is one of the best movies of 2019 with its good cinematography, quality acting, beautiful script, high-budget solid production and excellent sound editing. Especially Christian Bale has done a great job as always. The movie didn't have much to do except it was a little long.

Stronger (I) (2017)
7/10
Awesome explosion scene!
25 December 2020
The story of Bauman who lost his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and had to adjust to his new life.

Stronger (2017) is a movie worth watching, especially for its incredible realism on the scene after the explosion and the usual great acting performance of Jake Gyllenhaal.

A movie where you can spend a night.
25 December 2020
The escape story of the supernaturally powerful son and father, who are after a cult and the state.

Directed and written by Jeff Nichols, whom we know from films such as Take Shelter (2011) and Mud (2012), the movie attracts attention with its solid cast members such as Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver and Jaeden Martell. Although it may succumb to stereotypes in some places, it is a movie where you can spend a night with its original theme and visual beauty. 6.5/10

Kon-Tiki (2012)
7/10
The use of wide angle is awesome.
25 December 2020
Taken from a true story, the film depicts the legendary explorer Thor Heyerdahl's epic crossing of the Pacific along 4,300 miles in 1947 to prove that it was possible for South Americans to settle in Polynesia in the pre-Columbian era.

The film Kon-Tiki (2012) by Norwegian directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg stands out for its great views and superior art direction, especially its wide-angle use is fantastic. The fact that the movie includes sharks and whales also adds a privilege to the movie for us to watch. The movie, which also received an Oscar nomination for the best foreign language in 2013, is definitely worth watching for the adventure.

El Mariachi (1992)
7/10
It is one of the biggest examples of how to make good movies cheaply.
25 December 2020
A traveling mariachi is externally mistaken for a murderous criminal and pursues a notorious gang for revenge.

El Mariachi is the winner of the Mexican Trilogy and Robert Rodriguez is our brother's first feature film. He made the movie with his own means with a funny budget of 7 thousand dollars. It is one of the biggest examples of how to make good movies cheaply. It is fun and has a very fluid editing from start to finish. I recommend that viewers end the series by watching Desperado and Once Upon A Time In Mexico.

Dersu Uzala (1975)
8/10
We feel the empathy to the bone.
25 December 2020
I heard that there are still people who haven't watched Dersu Uzala.

While researching a distant forest, a researcher from the Russian army encounters the wise Dersu Uzala, who understands the language of nature. This encounter reminds the researcher of the meaning of nature and friendship and equips him with new knowledge.

In the film, which has a strong cinematography, we experience all emotions in a realistic way with the director's wonderful use of nature, thanks to this, our bond with the characters is strengthened and we feel the empathy to the bone.

This movie, which is a masterpiece of Akira Kurosawa, has its name written in golden letters in the history of cinema, and received the 1976 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. 8.5/10

Underwater (2020)
5/10
The underwater version of the Cloverfield (2008).
25 December 2020
The only aspects of the film that could be watched were Miller, who made him laugh from time to time, and the well-crafted, successful underwater atmosphere. The acting was average, the screenplay was like the underwater version of the Cloverfield (2008), I think they already saluted by playing Miller. There were so many unnecessarily extended scenes in the movie that I was very bored despite the 1 hour 35 minute duration, it was not fluent at all. A movie not worth watching in the cinema.

Painted with Words (2010 TV Movie)
8/10
Benedict Cumberbatch teaches acting class.
25 December 2020
Van Gogh: Painted with Words (2010) is a BBC documentary about the life of the famous painter Vincent Van Gogh, based on his correspondence with his brother, in other words, as its name suggests.

The documentary, where Benedict Cumberbatch gave an acting lesson by making his quality talk, brings the past to the present in a realistic way with its solid fiction. Those who wonder about the dramatic life of the painter should not miss it.

The disappointing Spike Jonze movie!
25 December 2020
Although its cinematography and music are good, the screenplay is creative, it is not fluent but boring. Like the directing commercial, Spike Jonze disappointed me. A children's drama that hasn't exceeded the mediocre. When you are not sleepy, open this movie and you will have a good sleep.

Searching (III) (2018)
7/10
It is one of 2018's unexpectedly good works.
25 December 2020
With its fluid and rational fiction, successful mystery screenplay, above-average acting, dose of tension and drama, it is one of 2018's unexpectedly good works. It is a striking movie for those of us who grow up with technology and sleep with social media. I say watch without thinking. 7.5/10

The Platform (2019)
7/10
There are no Hollywood clichés.
25 December 2020
The subject is creative, the music is reminiscent of The Thing, the acting is good, there are no Hollywood clichés in the script, the subtext is solid, the fiction is not bad, the fluency is high, the tension dosage is in place. It was a movie worth watching for 1.5 hours.

The Hedgehog (2009)
7/10
"The important thing is not to die, but what you do at the time of death."
25 December 2020
The movie is a 'drama' about a smart 11-year-old girl who thinks about committing suicide and a doorman who lives in the same apartment.

* The script was an adaptation of a book, and it shows itself with its literary superiority and thought-provoking dialogues. * The acting was at a sufficient level, I loved the girl child. * Camera usage and color palette clearly showed that it was European cinema. * The soundtrack was an Oscar-winning Gabriel Yared production and very nice.

It's a calm and impressive movie that I can definitely recommend to anyone.

Uzak (2002)
8/10
The last film of Nuri Bilge Ceylan's Country Trilogy.
25 December 2020
The story of the young man (Mehmet Emin Toprak) holding on to life alongside his cousin (Muzaffer Özdemir), a director and photographer living in the city, DISTANT from his home in the first two films.

The script has advanced compared to the first films, and a more complete and filmic work has emerged.

+ Technical quality has increased. + Again, there are scenes that can be called a visual feast. Their lead actors were very good and natural, they already won the Cannes best actor award. + The best movie in the trilogy.

  • There seemed to be a lack of dialogue, it would be better if it was increased.
  • Some scenes seemed easy to shoot. It seemed to be cropped from the right or left to simplify the image.
  • The last 15 minutes were a little boring, it could be speeded up.
A Turkish movie that must be watched.

My rating is 7.5 / 10

Clouds of May (1999)
7/10
The sequel to Nuri Bilge Ceylan's KASABA.
25 December 2020
The director turned his troubles into a film while filming KASABA and made a good idea. The movie is full of references to KASABA from start to finish. He also addressed the troubles of his mother, father and cousins, which he used as an actor. So, as you can see, the movie deserves its name. This movie is much more professional than KASABA.

+ The use of light is strengthened. + Sound recording and mixing quality has improved. + A color palette was used to show its progress dominated by green tones. + Acting performances have improved a bit. + Image quality is improved. + Tomato scene.

  • The dialogue quality in the first movie has decreased due to the script here.
  • The creative images from the first movie are somewhat lacking here.
  • There were minor errors in the image.
  • There were a few minor bugs in the editing.

Nuri Bilge Ceylan's first feature film.
25 December 2020
+ Stunning story. + Camera use and great compositions. + Fluent and realistic dialogs. + Acting where emotions are well reflected. + Enough time for 85 minutes. Some dialogues were too romance and reduced realism.

  • In some scenes, the use of light was poor, there were mud-like images.
  • In some scenes, the sound recording and mixing was flawed and inadequate.
  • Black and white. (Normally I like it, but it was very tiring as the image quality was low.)
It is obvious that most of the downsides are due to impossibilities.

My rating is 6.5 / 10

The clash of religion and science.
25 December 2020
Warning: Spoilers
A psychiatrist named Ebru Karaduman agrees with a demonist teacher named Faruk Akad for his thesis on the metaphysical events people experience are purely psychological errors and fraud. Faruk Akad's aim is to show the scientific world that such events are completely real. Ebru takes many cameras to prove the events in a video way, along with Faruk Akad, they travel to the vicinity of the village of Kibledere, known as the village of gin, where one of his acquaintances lives with a jinn case, and the events begin. Although the subject seems like a classic gin movie at first, as we watch the movie, we begin to realize that the script is much deeper and more impressive. We witness the clash of religion and science throughout the film. The exciting fight between Ebru and Faruk Akad, who tries to handle everything logically and proves that the events are actually much deeper and paranormal, draws you in until the end of the movie. In particular, the dialogues were among the places where he took care of the film, according to the director's description. The movie contains an unexpected number of impressive and high quality scenes from a horror movie. The acting surprises, with a few exceptions, because of the unexpected quality of a movie like this. Especially the characters Faruk Akad, Kubra and Ilyas are well animated. Realism has reached its maximum, as the film was shot as a found footage. We feel what the characters go through as if they were there. Although some of the camera movements are superfluous and dizzying, it is a successful film of the found footage genre in the world. One of the factors that surprised me is that there is no use of exaggerated music in the movie. Appropriate and appropriate music was used, but unfortunately I cannot say the same about the sound effects. The voices that burst in moments of fear were exaggerated and a headache. The excessive increase in loudness after the quiet dialogue scenes could have been unpleasant and more proportional. The duration of the movie, about 2.5 hours, was more than a horror movie to me. If it had been around 20 minutes short, it could have been a much more fluid film. In the last 30-45 minutes of the film, which is successful in editing, the tempo increases gradually. The script makes opposite corners one after another and begins to be resolved. It peaks with its finale. '' spoiler '' The finale of the film, in which religion and science clashed to the end, where neither religion nor science won, and evil triumphed, with an unhappy ending made me incredibly satisfied. '' spoiler '' Although I am an unbeliever, I advise every fear-lover to watch Dabbe: Cin Carpmasi, which is the best Turkish horror movie ever, seriously, purifying from their prejudices.
