While film school was only a brief detour in my life's path, movie watching is a constant passion. My favourite movies tend to be smart and funny, sometimes with a little fantasy. Dramas are good too, but nothing that takes itself too seriously. Movies are more entertainment for me than high art, though of course they can be both. My favourite actors are usually the ones that deliver subtle, honest performances, and who seem genuine and humble in real life. A strong narrative is a must. Special effects are only interesting if they support a great story. Cheap popcorn and big old movie houses are the best. My time in Australia has seen me fall in love with outdoor cinemas as well.
Fun if you're five years old. With about five minutes of real drama in this 90-minute adventure, we're left with a lot of dull moments with jokes aimed at kids and absolutely no character or story to keep the adults entertained. There is some great young talent here, particularly Kate Mara and Kevin Zegers, but they are completely wasted.
A classic comedy that is completely over the top and fun, from Nic Cage's campy overacting, to the ridiculous locations and supporting characters to the obvious Elvis music queues. And don't even get me started on the final act!
Exceptional casting and intricate details are what set this film apart from the Swedish original. While the basic storytelling is almost exactly the same, David Fincher adds little things here and there that offer bits of humour to the darker twists. Rooney Mara's Oscar nomination is much deserved. Even though I've seen the Swedish version, I can't wait to see what the American crew does next.
