Pulp Fiction created its own genre with it highly entertaining dialogs, mundane yet professional attitude of its criminals, various antics, and captivating intertwining stories. Quentin Tarantino was catapulted into the stratosphere of directors and creators for good reasons. This is no less than a masterpiece an earshot away from perfection.
A must see for anyone who doesn't mind violence, action, and disturbing subjects.
Dead Poets Society is a coming of age movie about forging your own path, following your own beat, and thinking for yourself. The acting is extremely good, the story very compelling as well as touching, and the strong dramatic tone of the film is nicely, if only slightly, soften by a few well placed laughs. It has all the characteristics of a teen flick, but done in with solid and serious cinematic rigour.
For those who don't mind facing reality straight on.
American Pie was revival of the teen genre. It threw away the jocks versus geeks theme for something more real, mainly how clueless and single minded we can be when we're adolescent. The focus is mainly on the guys' obsession about sex, but the finale, the last quarter of the flick, gives a much sensitive, touching and sweeter tone to the production. It's funny, with some exaggerations, but nothing over the top.
It's great entertainment, a solid teen perspective, and thoughtful.
Dave is an highly improbable story, but it is heartfelt and very entertaining. You will not get bored watching this flick and you'll smile all the while. It is simple straightforward, yet with a number of nice surprise. The acting is solid, no exaggeration or caricature, just nice performances.
