Game of Aces (2016) A unique World War I Film set in Egypt. It is interesting seeing the resourcefulness of both sides on using technology. It was interesting seeing a British nurse and translator in Disguise and can speak German as a translator. The truth is she was a German spy and an assassin. It was interesting seeing a German and an American use each other’s technology and have problems with each and convert a truck and an airplane into different vehicles. I had never seen an airplane get converted into a sand mobile. It was interesting the different spy technics like sending a message in a cigar or how to find direction without a compass. I liked that this film did talk about how to find direction. I did think this was interesting because there is not that big of a cast of characters in this film since it is a search and rescue story. What is also interesting plot twist about this film is that this German pilot once he crashes does not recall that he was defecting or had a secret message. I wish this film did not get so gruesome at the begging with the leg or used so many swear words. This film has a lot of action and plot twist for a story with limited characters and action that occurs during the film.
No Reservations (2007) Film The way they talk about food sounds sexually I did not really like much at the beginning of this film. Directed by Scott Hicks Zoe the niece of the main character is found in a hospital after an accident. The daughter survived but not the mother. The father is unknown. The guys wanted her to get married but she did not want to move out of the apartment she had been living in. According to the mother Zoe means life. Sister gives Kate said if anything bad were to happen to take care of Zoe. Her boss asked her to take Therapy She is replaced by a new chef while she is forced on leave. She is upset that she did not choose who she is cooking with and he is an Italian Chef. Kate’s Mother said she never cooked and Father never saw much of. Therapist says Zoe needs something more familiar in her life rather than fancy food. Gothic girls comes in tutoring and she looks questionable. I am not sure why we never saw the Gothic girl in the film again. Kate says that she Never eats in the afternoon. She feels her job will be taken away from her and her job is threatened. They make cool started in order to Honor to cook with you. Come to a apartment filled with cigarette buds in an ashtray. Spegettie there were problems in ancient Rome. First time got Zoey to eat or talk. Zoey decides to have an animal Italian meal in a Sunday. Father a steal worker in Pittsburgh and Grandmother started love of food but started cooking because of his first love Sophia. He tries to impress the cook by cooking with the best. Unpredictable and he gets his facts wrong. Zoey telling her she stays afterwords because she is cooking at work because she is earning her board and room. The psychiatrist says the best meals “It is the recipes you create for yourself that are the best.” I like how the film ends with Zoe’s, Nick, Kate Bistro It is a comedy, romance, food and family story with drama. Mostly a drama & romantic family story. A film about loss but how through loss found a new family through food. A story about How food brings people together. It has a series of Main cook is a real cook. The highlight of this film is the cook Nick does. I forgot he was a real cook. Nick asks Kate what is the Secret of saffron sauce. Aaron Eckheart is the charmer, comedy relief and most convincing in the film. Kate is portraying a Narrow minded as far as it is her way or no way. Refined and ocd on the menu.
Funny Girl (1968) Some of the best parts are the comedy like being pregnant or the roller skates scenes. I like the sets, costumes in this film. I liked that that this was not a typical musical and there was not as much music as many musicals. There are enjoyable things to see such as the gamboling scenes, the family dynamic with a Jewish family. I wish that this film had focused more on the relationship with the daughter and what being Jewish meant in this community.
The Other Me (2000) A Disney Channel Film. Some of it is cheesy like the CGI for the Cloning experiment or the music score by Mark Mothersbaugh. I like the actor casting the cuts. I think where this movie misses on the film is the music score. The comedy is there but the music is way too cheesy for the story. The music score should have played more seriously rather than use a music score that sounds like a kids child’s movie. If the music score was played more seriously like Back to the Future; then the film would have worked out as more convincing. Part of the reason this film did not work for me was some of the story or behavior by the clone seems so bizarre in behavior by the clone so it is not portrayed as a convincing performance. I had trouble believing the clone would act or behavior would be that way as portrayed in the film. I do like the fact that you can easily identify a significant difference in performances by the Clone vs the real person based upon the the way the walk, smile, or how they wear the clothes. I like the portrayal of the best friend, parents, and those who cloned at the Ocean Pup Science experiment shop. Those elements do work for me in this film. I like how they use the famous line from Casablanca “This is the beginning of a Wonderful relationship.” Dad portrayed by by Mark L Taylor and son & Clone portrayed by Andrew Lawrence. I did not realize how many things he did. He was the Voice in the Show and films Recess as TG Detwhiler. He was in a show Brotherly Love. He guest stared as a cousin in several seasons of the new version of Hawaii Five-0. Chuckie portrayed by Brendon Jefferson Victor portrayed by Scott McCord Conrad portrayed by Joe Grifasi
It is a film with a lot of physical comedy. It is interesting that the German is not subtitled in this film. There is also a lot of drama in this film. I did not realize how much of this film relied on dialogue before going into this film. There is a lot of the comedy which reminds me of silent movie style comedy on the punchlines. It is a interesting film in that this film takes place in Italy between 1939-1945. It is hard to believe that the kids or that a person could have gotten away with doing the stuff seen in this film as long as they did in this film.
