Yes, I am very daft. I liked this movie. :D
I have no dea why this movie and the Scary Movie franchise get me so giddy, but they do. The cheap, infantile humour is something that should be a turn off, but for some reason it works. Maybe it is the actors, the timing, and that the source material they are playing with is so familiar to me.
If yuo are easily amused and know your superhero movies, then go for it. If not, don't bother.
A very good documentary on Whitney Houston. The main focus is not in the music, but on the life events that led into her untimely death. Also a sad story of how a world famous person is left without help and support. And also how those who did try to intervene were just smoked out. Of course, this was only one look into a situation which must have been very much more complex. I also liked that the movie was not solely focused on the drug problem and that it did not blame Bobby Brown solely for the drug problem. It was very important that we saw she'd been using drugs even before even though things did spiral out of control with him. But from the other media I had got the idea he was solely the source of the problem. And as I said, it was really good to see them focus on other stuff, too, that caused her pain. And how far her image was in the beginning from her true self and the reaction from the people she must have considered as her own people.
Really a shame the whole thing.
(I'll try to choose my words as not to spoil anything in case you haven't seen the movie yet.)
This movie went on very effortlessly. There were a few clever shots (for example the bed scene) to go around the contemporary censorship rules. There were some relatively tasty scenes like when she learns the truth and gets angry. But unfortunately the movie felt very impersonal and like nobody was really that happy to even make the movie. Everybody did a steady job, but it felt like they were not personally invested in the movie and they just did their work and went home after a day of filming. There was no chemistry between the main couple. I'm not sure they even got along in real life based on what I saw on the screen. The dance scene was very awkward. All in all, this was not a very memorable movie. The only people who stood out were the two housekeepers and the sister. Other than that, it was all just so very bland.
Such a shame. What a waste of good actors. :(
Very uneven movie. At times it was clever and amusing. But at other times it was too infantile and went after those cheap laughs. The movie was not very good, but it wasn't bad either. There was something magical and captivating and I couldn't let my eyes go off the movie even for a second. The main couple were lovely. So all in all a positive experience. :)
An outsider comes in and ignites the racism into full flame in an already racist town. The film is good in many ways. William Shatner as a charming and charismatic outsider, who feeds on the fears of the common folk with lies and deceit. Surprisingly topical message, unfortunately. The only thing the movie got wrong was [spoilers!] that in reality, even after you expose the kingpin's lies, some people don't abandon them but continue supporting them no matter what and take no responsibility of their own actions and just keep on blaming the others for their own mistakes and wrongdoings. So, unfortunately, the movies still beat reality. :(
