I really enjoyed this comedy directed, written by and starring John Turturro, co-starring Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Paradis, and Liev Schreiber. I really have no explanation why it failed at the box office and received mixed reviews from critics. I really thought at some stage that this was Woody Allen's movie, because the story was just crazy enough to hve his stamp! Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone), a wealthy dermatologist, mentions to her patient Murray (Woody Allen) that she and a woman friend (Sofía Vergara) wish to experience a ménage à trois and asks if he knows a willing man. Of course Murray, who is Jewish, and whose used bookstore has failed, wants to take an advantage of this situation and he convinces his friend and former employee Fioravante (John Turturro) to take the gig, as both are short of money...
Very light story actually had lots of substance under the surface, and Turturro really shows us a great skill to take stereotypical characters and to portray them in an offbeat and surprising way! I could not believe how funny those offbeat ways could be, and uniquely enjoyable at the same time.
Refreshingly different but still comfortably familiar with Woody Allen giving one of his better performances! Enjoy the sweetness and its silliness.
Sweet family comedy-drama written, produced, and directed by Jon Favreau, and starring Favreau, Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey, Jr. Enjoyable Favreau plays a professional chef who, after a public altercation with a food critic, quits his job. His ex-wife has an idea for him to look after their son during the school holidays, and to start his own business - a food truck. He has his young son helping him in driving the truck back to L.A. while selling Cubanos in various cities along the way.
Lovely and sweet story for which Favreau wrote the script in only two weeks, after directing several big-budget films. His wish was to go "back to basics" and to create a film about cooking. And I am thankful for it! Food truck owner and chef Roy Choi served as a co-producer and oversaw all of the menus and food prepared for the film. Well made, with perfectly casted stars, the film grossed over US$45 million at the box office and was well received by critics.
If you love enjoyable, but sometimes shallow situations, lots of feel good moments and excellent acting and directing - do not miss this one.
Interesting story of this comedy-drama directed by Phil Alden Robinson wasn't enough for a positive review. Even with stars like Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo, there was so much missing. The story follows a physician who accidentally tells her obnoxious patient that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. Of course, panicking, the guy is trying to right his wrongs, racing around the city.
A remake of the 1997 Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, written and directed by Assi Dayan, it had enough originality but lacked directing skills and direction, as well as rhythm and reality.
I am glad that film lasted only 83 minutes, I am not sure that I could last a minute longer!
Surprisingly invigorating Irish/UK comedy-drama directed by Lenny Abrahamson and starring Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy and Michael Fassbender as the title character.
The story of Jon, a young man with a strong interest in music starts ordinary but soon everything changes as he joins an eccentric band called "Soronprfbs". The leader of that band is the title character Frank. Finding himself in the band, Jon follows them to Ireland where they have to record an album. Over the year, practicing the album material, Jon practice posting videos on the internet of the band's rehearsal sessions, and that makes them famous
If you are a fan of movies with lot of heart, which are thought-provoking and funny but extremely unusual, add this one to the list. Worth watching.
It is very difficult for a superhero film to keep the interest and the momentum in the seventh instalment. But the director Bryan Singer, focusing on two time periods and Wolverine going to 1973 to save the future of mankind, he made the old fans happy and content, and new viewers could understand what the story in general is about the X-Men. The film stars the familiar cast, including Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Nicholas Hoult, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, and Patrick Stewart. Of course, there is not too many movies failing on a budget of US$200 million, and it this British-American co-production used some of the best names in the industry .
Simon Kinberg wrote the screenplay from a story conceived by him, Matthew Vaughn, and Jane Goldman, and managed with the director Singer to make a best-reviewed film in the X-Men series. It had fresh visual style, story, and acting, and it was normal that finished as a highest-grossing film in the series, having earned over $746 million worldwide. A sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016, with Singer returning to direct.
I had some problem with the story at the moments... it seemed going out of control of any logic, but maybe that is normal for something dealing with the time travel and supernatural powers. Enjoyable entertainment, and nothing more.
