People, CALM DOWN!!!
I like pretty much every Christopher Nolan movie, he has proved himself as one of the greatest 21st century directors time and time again. However, that doesn't mean that just because a movie says ¨Writen and directed by Christopher Nolan¨ its going to be perfect.
Is ¨Dunkirk¨ great?, Yes. Is it the 47th best movie of all time?, No. The acting is pretty amazing, the cinematography manages to make you feel in the middle of the story and the score by Hans Zimmer is amazing. Nolan remains a flawless technician: every shot, every explosion, every special effect, all with a purpose. It's a gorgeous film.
There aren't that many problems with the movie, but nonetheless, no movie is perfect. The editing is a bit too ambitious, I won't say why, but you'll get it when you see the movie. Also I ended up with a headache because of the constant shake of the camera. The story lacks bigger attachment to it's protagonists, of course I didn't want them to die, but the screenplay doesn't really seems to care as to what happens to them.
Grossly overrated, but truly special, ¨Dunkirk¨ is the most frustrated I've been with a Nolan film since 2005. Hopefully he'll get an Oscar nod for this, since the academy has a hard on for WW2 movies. Just calm down and don't listen to the fanboys, because this film deserves your honest opinion.
Overall: 7.8 Great
Black Mass (2015)
What you have heard about Depp's performance is true, he is AMAZING in this movie. Probably his best role since the 90's. However, this movie doesn't have a interesting supporting cast or a well structured narrative to make this good.
The main problem is how serious this movie takes itself. There are no jokes or funny situations during the 2 hour run time. That's fine, a serious movie is not a bad movie, but the reason Goodfellas is a masterpiece is because it has interesting characters. The crime genre needs likable characters to make you interested in what's going on.
Edgerton is not a good actor, Cumberbatch is barely in the movie and everybody else is so forgettable that I can't remember anybody's name. And the jump in time are so sudden that you never realize when something it's supposed to be happening between 1975-1985.
It's ¨Black mass¨ a bad movie?, yeah, its uninteresting, filled with boring characters and lacks the sexiness and excitement of the best mafia based stories, and if the source material doesn't have it, then don't adapt it.
Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
I wanted it to be worse
I think Ice age is the best animated movie of all time, however, not a single sequel has come even close to being as good. The fourth one was the biggest offender, being one of the worst movies I have ever seen. And I wanted this to be worst, it was a disappointment. Its not as bad, Scratch was almost as funny as he was in the 2nd one, but for the rest, Manny cant get any worse than the previous one, Diego sucks, her girlfriend was useless, Sid was boring and the rest of the mammoths are really annoying. Im just tired of the F$%&ing rats and they found a way to ruin Buck, the last good character this franchise created. However, I kept a smile during most of the movie, and I guess this would be a fun watch for kids, but F$&K that. This is the worst movie of 2016 so far, but who cares, this thing already tripled its budget so please lets this franchise die, please, Im f$%&ing tired.
Jason Bourne (2016)
Just another Jason Bourne film
I prepared myself for this one, watching all the main Bourne films during the week so I could see it on Sunday. Ultimatum jumped out as the best one, however, the other two were just decent action-spy movies. And this one is no difference, is not bad, but it didn't take the good parts of the trilogy and just did the same mistakes all over again. The main villain is a extremely bad 60 years old man (Tommy lee Jones), the fight with the other assassin wasn't as over the top or fun to watch as the first movie and the car chase, even as awesome as it was, wasn't as tense as the one in Supremacy. Jason Bourne isn't that much of a great protagonist and the ending is just sequel bait, is not bad but I wish they would just end the series with the next one, because trust me, there will be another one.
