I recommend you to see movies like Boyhood and Jodorowsky's Dune whenever you can, and also Locke and Life Itself, they're already on my top 10 of 2014 so far.

You pretty much said everything about the new Muppet movie that i felt, except with more charisma than myself haha. I still have no idea why they chose Ricky Gervais though, is he more popular in the US? oh and i agree that there's too many people and not enough Muppets! :)

Bio:
I eat, drink and sleep movies. But I call them films. Some of my reviews have question marks instead of commas, for this and other in-corrections in grammar, I apologise. I like films and I like talking to other people who like films about films! If you don't really like films you are at the wrong place. All my reviews are based on my own opinion, if you don't like it, you know what to do but please don't be nasty and try and keep your remarks short and intelligent. Please don't add me just to increase your numbers, I will only add you/ask for you friendship if I like your style (Not because you are naked, although, feel free to send me naked pictures of yourself if you like ;o). Learn the rules before you play the game! I look forward to communicating with you in the future! ;o) PS. I'm not a troll and I don't have lots of other profiles and other such nonsense. I'm not interested nor will I tolerate anti-social networking! Oi, Flixster, sort the list function out!!!!!!!

Surrogates

Surrogates

(2009)
4 days ago via Flixster

Surrogates is a sci-fi thriller very much in the style of Phillip K. Dick but is much better than most of the films based on his work, certainly the ones of recent years anyway. It's had a lot of bad press, most of it unfair in my opinion. Maybe many felt let down because of the low budget vs. huge potential but then I think you can spoil a story like this with overblown budgets and for me the balance was just right. Many people still haven't forgiven Jonathan Mostow for Terminator 3 but then again, I also didn't think that deserved the bad press it received. It's better than most of the garbage Hollywood churns out in trying to master this genre. Low budget = high creativity 98% of the time.

Superman and the Mole-Men

Superman and the Mole-Men

(1951)
4 days ago via Flixster

Obviously Superman fans and fans of the old Cinema reel series are going to love this but others may be disappointed. The Mole-men (although they are only ever referred to as the 'strange creatures') aren't exactly Superman's biggest foe (excuse the pun). This tale is more about acceptance and understanding over violence, which to be fair has always been Superman's biggest opponent. Dated for sure, but a great short film. Phyllis Coates was a great Lois Lane, I think I preferred her to Noel Neil if I'm being honest.

La Vie en Rose (La Mome)

La Vie en Rose (La Mome)

(2007)
4 days ago via Flixster

A brutally honest portrait of a troubled singer, Edith Piaf's life was a strange mix of success and tragedy but at no point does the film sugar-coat her or cover up the fact that a lot of it was just down to her. The jumping between different stages in her life was a little annoying at first but it becomes apparent as to why they chose to do it that way at the heartbreaking and astonishingly moving conclusion. Marion Cotillard's performance is spectacular, never has an actor been so brilliantly cast in a specific role. A powerful biopic, the best I've seen in quite a while and highly recommended!

The Lady Vanishes

The Lady Vanishes

(1938)
4 days ago via Flixster

The Lady Vanishes is actually quite clumsy. The overlong introduction is pointless, many of the characters bring nothing to the overall story and all seriousness is continually interrupted by misplaced humour. Nothing about it should work, if it were put forward today it would be torn to shreds by a writing team and would be unrecognisable. The thing is though, is that for all its failing, it's a fantastic little film. Maybe it's the best example of Hitchcock's greatness because everyone loves it despite and maybe even due to it's failures. It is very likable, has a great cast of characters and an unforgettable and brilliant ending. It goes to show how some producers still can't get things right too, we're all too used to formula, Hitchcock addressed this (and also added to it through no fault of his own) and film makers should look at what he didn't do just as much as what he did.

Detachment

Detachment

(2012)
4 days ago via Flixster

An over-baked mess of good ideas. If the idea was to make a statement on the American educational system then it should have focused on that instead of all the other distracting sub-plots. It all seemed a bit cliched, like a mix of scenes and characters (and cinematic styles - non of which Kaye can call his own) from other films. In my opinion Tony Kaye fails to get the message across (again) because he totally lacks focus. I really wanted to like it, there is a good film in there somewhere, it's just confused and contrived beyond recognition. Brody and Caan's performances are the high points and I loved seeing Louis Zorich again.
