The Artist (2011)

Not a great film by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, very little imagination was put into the story. While the direction was pretty straight forward, it wasn't a difficult film to direct. Every story element was a rip-off of films that came before it. Not worth watching again. Stick with Chaplin.

La Ragazza del lago (The Girl by the Lake)
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A boring uninspired murder mystery with no big payoff. There were some nice shot sprinkled in but as a whole film it seemed longer than it was. It was never interesting and nothing really happened that would warrant a repeat viewing. I'm still yawning from seeing it.

This film is so overrated by critics. J.J Abrams couldn't hold a camera steady if it was held in a vise. His actions sequences were horribly shot and edited and the script's humor was sophomoric at best. He's not the best judge of what material to keep and what material should be left with his buddies in a beer soaked room. I hope he has learned a few lessons for his next outing, but with all this undeserved praise, I feel he thinks he can do no wrong. He is not a great director as everyone thinks he is, but merely a barely competent one who latched onto a franchise whose loyal and devoted fans would have drank sand to see a new Star Trek film.

However, the casting of the new crew was great and I do look forward to another film with them involved. I just hope it's not another shake fest with a director that seems to have no camera discipline.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Robert Wise gave us the most poetic of the Star Trek films. The Enterprise seemed more real and majestic than ever before and the mood of the film truly captured a sense for deep space exploration. It was a great film debut for the crew of The Enterprise.
