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.
Disney did not only create a very unique and incredibly detailed location with their San Fransokyo, they also came up with characters you instantly care about. The result is a super hero team origin story that is celebrating science and its geeks, always laughing with them, never at them. The animation is the best and most impressive seen on film to date, the action is well-timed, the jokes are funny and the emotions grab you right by the collar. It isn't until after the movie that you realize that story followed somewhat known paths. Adults may have an easy time predicting the plot, but they can still enjoy the many Easter eggs and how much fun their young companions will have with this colorful, lovable and highly entertaining ride.
This action thriller may not reinvent the wheel but it delivers exciting and engaging entertainment for two hours, even adds some surprising pinches of humor. Cruise remains one of the most convincing leading men in the business, filling the role of the smart tough guy with obvious joy. Particularly bizarre and terrifying is Werner Herzog's mastermind villain. Much more rewarding than expected! Genre fans can do no wrong here.
What could have been a tongue-in-cheek, spectacular action show feels like a Botox commercial with everyone patting themselves on the back, Stallone most of all. Characters appear and disappear without reason, just for cheap laughs, after the initial sacrifice no good guy is ever in real danger and just blasts through the dozens of faceless minions that happen to cross their paths. That's as exciting as a postcard of Des Moines, Iowa and as funny as a heart attack. The ironic appearances by Schwarzenegger and Willis hint at what could have been. But what we got is stupid, self-righteous dreck.
I had to let it sink in for 24 hours. During the film itself I was on the edge of my seat, clenching my fists into it, I laughed, I was touched, never indifferent but sometimes confused, maybe. So the final judgement had to wait.
After a good night's sleep and some thinking I feel comfortable in saying Interstellar met my pretty big expectations. I am sure the reception will be somewhat mixed and controversial, because the movie is pretty demanding of its audience and the solution may not be for everyone. I liked it just the way it was, but I can easily suspend my disbelief, even with films based on actual Science.
Worth noting is that Matthew McConaughey and especially Jessica Chastain are outstanding once again. Comparisons to 2001, Gravity, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Right Stuff have been made, they are all right and still can't exactly grasp what's going on here. Saying more about the plot than that we're leaving Earth after a rrelatively short introduction would already be spoiling things, even if the final twist isn't really all that surprising.
Christopher Nolan's space opera is slow but beautiful to look at, huge, complex, terrifying and ultimately pretty trippy. Judge for yourself. On the big screen, mind you.
