The Notebook
The Notebook (2004)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A classical love story where true love fiercely wins and triumph over events and sillyness of one own actions. It is a beautiful story, for the ones that likes romantic tales.
The movie offers some very beautiful picture - when Noah and Allie are rowing the boats, it is just breathtaking and some remarkable acting. Though, the actors that did impress me were not the young Noah and Allie, rather the old man reading the Notebook and the old woman who seemed to have lost her memory.
How the two stories are tied up together could have been shared through the movie without becoming such a trivial revelation, but despite that the jumps between the present and the 40s is smoothly made.
This should be a movie perfectly likable for Valentine!

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The movie has its moments. It is funny, ironic and definitely absurd. The scenarios are beautiful and it is filmed beautifully. Details are relevant everywhere. However, the movie doesn't let in his viewer. It is too artificial and too cerebral for being fully appreciated and the implications of one thing or another are impossible to catch in this format. It is nice to make original movies that are not too straightforward and trivial, but at least make sure that it can be appreciated without having a big question mark about what really the movie is about.

Alice in Wonderland
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Disney version of Alice lacks some of the book charm and makes the story definetely chaotic and a bit schizophrenic. Though, i love how the character of Alice is depicted (especially if we think that the movie is from 1951!) and several scenes are hilarious. Still, a very good family movie to watch, surrounded by some very nice songs, as always, in a typical Disney timeless style

Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins (1964)
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Mary Poppins is just the perfect family movie, where the songs are just timeless and backbones to general kids culture. The setting is delightful in a perfect ironic representation of the beginning of the century. Julie Andrews is just the perfect nanny, the perfect Mary Poppins.
Very brilliantly executed considering that the movie is from 1964 and the special effects were definitely not of the same abundance in quantity and quality as today.
