My rating system: 5 stars = favorite movie 4,5 stars = outstanding, masterpiece 4 stars = great, excellent 3.5 = very good 3 stars = good, decent entertainment 2,5 stars = average, alright 2 = below average, rather meh 1.5 = rather bad 1 = really bad 0.5 = horrid crap I am mostly here to rate movies I watched and create an archive of everything I've seen, but I'll be glad to talk about movies or anything with people who share a similar taste. However, I don't care much for marriage offers from Africa or other spam, and don't waste your time with offering your paid web cam either, I will report you. Anyone else is more than welcome to say Hi, if they have a profile that tells me something about them and their taste.

Sweetwater

Sweetwater

(2013)
20 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Starting out like a somewhat regular Western, albeit with a really hateful and diabolic bad guy, the film goes more into pulp territory with each minute. While Ed Harris' shenanigans are fun to watch, it is January Jones who's the problem. The more her character enters the center stage, the less interesting things get. Fact is, she can't act her way out of a kartonage box. The movie gets bloodier with each minute but also less exciting because it takes a little more than someone walking around shooting people in revenge to keep the audience interested. By the time of the showdown you just don't care anymore. Wasted chances all around.

A Sci-Fi action thriller so fast you don't even notice how flawed it is. Pearce's one-liners are way too entertaining and the pace way too breathless to notice how many other (and better) films were influencing this. It's not particularly engaging, what with the cartoonish bad guys and somewhat predictable plot, but somehow it's still a lot of fun and over sooner than you can blink, erm....think.

German animation film, with pretty decent graphics but a rather preachy story. It doesn't exactly help that the humor is somewhat infantile and the timing totally off. If this film proves one thing then what a terrific job most US-productions make in expanding their target audience to older kids and even young adults. Children may have fun with this but there is nothing redeeming here for an older audience.

Let's be honest, Crowe's older films had much more energy, honesty and unpredictability. Here, you know immediately what you are getting, and you are getting a lot of it. Family drama, cute animal humor, romance, and the notion that hard work can make you achieve anything. That's naive and sometimes even a bit annoying. And yet the film ends of engaging you after all, because of the likable characters and Crowe's instinct to use the right song for the right scene. By the wonderful ending the film has won you over and you can't help but sit there with a bug stupid grin on your face. It then adds a real tear-jerker of a final scene that gives it all more depth than you got for two hours before that. Quite a feat.
