Get Santa (2014)
A funny, joyful and very kind film that made a great jailhouse rock for the start of the holiday season. One of the nicest Christmas movies I've seen. Solid seven stars from me.
Time Key (2020)
Gifted with mediocrity
Although sometimes good films have been released in Russia in recent years, this one turned out to be unsuccessful in my opinion. The creators have borrowed too much from others, especially - from Hollywood. This kills originality. And without originality, there will be no feeling that the idea was worked on. Moreover, when you can compare with the stronger representatives of the genre. I do not recommend it for viewing.
The Bra (2018)
Each bra has a second half
The winner of the Cinequest San Jose Film Festival is a clear representative of azerbaijani auteur cinema. And although the film took the award in the nomination of comedy films, it is quite serious, with a pretense to be on a par with the works of Jim Jarmusch and Emir Kusturica. Filmed in a very special way Hawk V-Plus Anamorphic lens for a 1970s feel, which is very original in terms of technical specification. By the way, it is not cheap enough, as the lenses of this brand reach 140,000 euros. For comparison, the lenses on the camera that the Avengers: Endgame (2019) and the Joker (2019) were filming in price range from $22,000 to $45,000.
Another curious feature of the film is its versatility due to the lack of words. This is a smart move, because the picture can be viewed in any country in the world, but I think that even in the post-Soviet space, such a bright representative of the art-house will remain underestimated, not to mention Europe and the United States. One thing can be asserted with certainty, just a little bit and before us there would be another masterpiece with a capital M, just a little bit more...
The Bay of Silence (2020)
The Bond girl is diagnosed with schizophrenia
Olga Kurylenko, having been in the film industry for such a long time, did not learn acting for the same reason that penguins did not learn to fly. Penguins cannot fly due to their nature. Olga Kurylenko cannot play because she is a cover model. The ''movie'' is so bad, that sometimes it seems that I would rather listen to an aspiring drummer for an hour and a half with an aspiring violinist, than watching this.
Another disappointment 2020.
Still J Lo
Jennifer Lopez is one of the brightest enterteiners of our time. Always stunningly beautiful. Always attractive. Always inventive. She looks better and better every year, which sometimes seems - she will live forever!
Fox, lion, crocodile, humans. Who will win in the end?
"All it takes for the film - is a pistol and a girl." Jean-Luc Godard
Decades later, this advice from the great cinematographer has been too often used for the benefit of modern mediocrity. "Rogue" is merciless to the viewer. A string of meaninglessness and a bad script, coupled with a team of incompetent ones, looks disgusting. Evidence: This is NOT how the military behaves. Animals DON'T behave like that. In situations like this, people DON'T say that. Almost everything that happens on the screen is NOT logical, down to the crocodile. Megan Fox is NOT an actress. Why shoot all this? Why watch all this? Yiwuhh...
Taiyô no uta (2006)
Power of death
Despite the fact that life is full of drama and it is rare to find a person who is carefree and content with his existence, there is a force that is stronger than the force of death. Power, that does not take away from us, does not divide and kill. Power to help us dream and find the best in each of us. This is the Power of Love!
If you have not seen this movie, you should definitely watch it!
I like action movies. I really like "Leon" with the unique Natalie Portman and the unruffled Jean Reno. I love "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and all the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie family issues. There are many more action movies I like, but "Ava" will never make this list.
P.S. Jessica Chastain is a wonderful actress and a very stylish and beautiful woman.
If I Stay (2014)
Emergency Chloë or How else to spoil Mozart
The film had potential, to the point where it became clear that everything was drowned in routine and cliché. A good old repeat awaited me at every next turn. Nothing in this film sounded... except for Amadeus.
Meet Okja meat
The South Korean project, which didn't even get a tenth of it's budget at the box office, turned out to be one of the most disgusting films I've seen. For me personally, it was unpleasant to see how creators with such a zealous obsession are trying to promote vegetarianism, as almost the only way of worldview. For them, maybe yes. But for millions of people subject to religious requirements not to eat the meat of certain animals, this is just a ban. Of course, many of you can prove and explain to me that all this is shown with good intentions, but I see this as just another division, headed not by religion, but simply by food.
K Chyornomu moryu (1958)
Propaganda of marriage
An excellent Soviet road movie with an interesting young cast and great filming on location. Of course, there were some stereotypes of the USSR thinking, but if you understand the people of that time and their way of life, the film looks quite pleasant and easy.
Chappie II: Nostalgia for the sixth sense
The goal that the creator of this film set for himself remained in a question mark for me. Basically, the ''Archive'' repeats many different films already shot before it. The infinite 1.49 screen time makes you bored, hectic and constantly check the timing. Unsuccessful attempt to interest me.
A pretty good dramatic horror from José Luis Montesinos, who directed only six short films before this work. And although at times it seems that there are few interactions and everything is filmed in a local way, the film keeps you in suspense and in the end leaves a good impression.
Un povero ricco (1983)
Feelings and hunger
The romantic comedy ''Un povero ricco'' is unique in its kind because it mockingly shows a rich man voluntarily giving up his wealth. It doesn't work that way. And while the rich also feel hungry, it's not because of the lack of funds for food. To all the class proceedings, in this picture is also added a cool love line, which takes the film to another level within the already quite loaded script. The unsurpassed duet of beautiful Ornella Muti and funny Renato Pozzetto did a great job to make the feeling after watching it easy, but at the same time there was something to think about.
I can only say that such films are worth watching. Watch and understand, that you need to love. Love movies. Love like in the movies. Although it has nothing to do with hunger... Or has it!?
The Beach Bum (2019)
Poet without borders
The ''Beach Bum'' as a movie is so-so, mediocre I would say. In some places even really stoned for feelings. Matthew McConaughey, on the other hand, is fantastically brilliant. His talent outshines all guest stars. Here he is a kind of Bob Marley from poetry. Of course, this film is not for everyone and with a high rating, but you can still watch it. Once.
Soap and rinse
Before I watched this film, I assumed that it was not interesting, formulaic and very boringly predictable. And I was not mistaken after.
Gut gegen Nordwind (2019)
Good work from Vanessa Jopp to adapt the novel into a film, left me impressed by what I saw. In some places, the story tends to the mundane, but nevertheless aligns itself thanks to the sensual dialogues of the main characters and their fantasies. In principle, we can contate, that we have before us another modern love story, the origins of which follow from the world wide web.
The Layover (2017)
Nasty, stupid, immoral movie. As well as sick, silly, blonde-crooked and so on... I guess, you get me.
Anna di Brooklyn (1958)
Here comes the bride
Carlo Lastricati's only directing job interested me for two reasons. The first is Gina Lollobrigida, one of my favorite actresses and certainly one of the most beautiful women the world has seen. Of course, this film is very simple and unpretentious, but despite this, in this comedic role Gina looks bright, however, as always.
The second reason is, of course, Vittorio De Sica. What makes the creator of the ''Ladri di biciclette'' and ''La ciociara'' appear in this romantic comedy. Everything is pretty simple. De Sica was an avid gambler. And in excitement he often lost large sums of money, because of which he sometimes had to act in simple films, clearly not of his level. Such is the sad truth. As the truth is that the film is not bad at all and I do not understand why it is deprived of attention, but this is just my opinion.
One of the most notable films of 2018, perfectly combines the genres of science fiction, detective and even - horror. Deserved seven stars from me.
How an unbalanced person can become a mediocre stripper.
Bruno Rolland's film is so sluggish and meaningless, that it lacks an erotic component because of it. Sexual tension is knocked down by incomprehensible dialogues, inadequacy and most of all by the ugly and wooden main character. It is still a mystery, how she became a stripper and an even bigger mystery - why. In general, this film is empty.
The Turning (2020)
The ugly uninteresting story in this so-called horror movie will not leave lasting impressions in my life. On the contrary - it proves, that even a horror genre needs talent, atmosphere and inspiration, not a collection of silly clichés.
Not scary. Not interested. Not watchable.
Mermaid Down (2019)
You are the luckiest person, if you did not manage to press the start button and see at least a minute of this creation. Seriously. Lucky you!
The Breakfast Club (1985)
The Magnificent Five
It is one of the greatest films in the history of cinema of all time and all nations. Why? Because we are all children, incorrigible teenagers, right, wrong, tired, strong, we were driven to white heat, guys, girls, teachers, cleaners, insurance agents, youth, over forty, we are sixteen, we are parents... Well, almost all...
Lost in Translation (2003)
A beautifully made film. Modern industrial Japan is perfectly shown along with ancient customs and culture, which in turn shows us two main characters - a young girl and an older man. Perhaps this is the best movie, for me, in which depressive depressed state and breathing life-giving joy are so well connected. A lot of silence, as if the film itself was watching the viewer, his attitude to the picture itself. Oh! Great movie. Great Scarlett. Great Bill. That's it, I lost in words...
