Wellington Oliveira's Movie Ratings - Rotten Tomatoes

Movie Ratings and Reviews

The L-Shaped Room
½

Here we have what we can call "the performance of a lifetime" for Leslie Caron.

The Impossible

By the time Maria got hurt underwater while looking for her son in the middle of the water caos, I wanted to cry and I was totally involved for this amazing piece of film. Thanks to Naomi Watts I hold my breath for so many times without even notice it. Great visual effects, great sound! The movie feels human, real and all the time compelling.

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
½

I don't like action movies, but this one has such a solid and smart screenplay that I really enjoyed and recommend it, even for those that don't care for action... Like me!

Mommie Dearest
½

Dunaway's performance is more Oscar worthy than Razzie worthy like it was. Sure, it's too much, but she has the eyes of Joan Crawford, the smile of Joan Crawford... She got second place at the best actress category at the New York Critics, for God's sake!

Yankee Doodle Dandy
½

I love musicals, I love classics, but this one here was just a dull and overlong experience...

Alice Adams
Alice Adams(1935)

I expected more from the great Hepburn, but she did manage to broke my heart at some times...

Amour
Amour(2012)
½

Emmanuelle Riva's performance may not be THE best of the year, but sure is the most AUTHENTIC. Thanks to her I forgot that it was all a movie and started to see the whole thing as real life! The "slap scene" and the "pillow scene", both so powerfull and all of a suddenly, made the movie for me.

Of Human Bondage
½

It sure has some dull and slow bits, but it's all worth because of Davis shinning, brave performance. Without a doubt the best work of an actress in 1934. I want to watch the whole thing over and over again!

Save the Tiger

The movie disappointed me deeply. Not even Lemmon can save it. In fact, he didn't deserve his Oscar for this at all. He only has two good scenes and they're not even THAT great.

The Star
The Star(1952)
½

I can't believe that this movie has ZERO rating in here, while so many other craps get so much higher. Ok, the movie isn't good, but Bette Davis alone is responsable for saving at least half of this, so a 50% rating would have been fair.

An American in Paris

By the time the number "I'll Build A Stairway to Paradise" was over, I was pretty sure that this is the MOST BEAUTIFUL and charming film I've ever seen. What about the last ballet sequence? A work of art! And the songs "I Got Rhythm" and "S Wonderful" just don't get out of my head.

Beasts of the Southern Wild
½

It's all about Quvenzhane Wallis brave performance. At the beginning I just thought "Ok. She's just fine. An avarage performance for a child." But then comes that ending and she just blows me away! That half smile on her face that is so "adult" and the tears... All that and, Oh, my God, she's just a little girl.

ParaNorman
ParaNorman(2012)

I thought "Brave" was the best animated film of the year, but then I watched this and... THIS is the best animated film of 2012. It's funny, tender. It has many thrills and a touching final message. I just hope the Academy thinks the same.

For Colored Girls
½

Probably the most underrated "essemble cast" movie ever. Ok. Whoopie and Thandie are not that great, but awards for Anika Noni Rose and Kimberly Elise would have been well deserved.

Nine
Nine(2009)
½

Except for Judi Dench and Sophia Loren's musical numbers I liked all the others musical attractions. But some good musical numbers glued together are not enough to make a good film.

Sudden Fear
Sudden Fear(1952)

It's not the best Joan Crawford's performance, but it's the best Joan Crawford's movie. I found myself saying "Oh, no" and "Don't do this" during the whole thing because I was so involvend with the plot. Even one person of my family that do not like watching old, black and white movies, sat on the sofa very curious about the thrilling ending. And this is the final prove of how engrossing the movie is.

She Done Him Wrong

The movie is very short and enjoyable. It's the very first Mae West's movie I've ever seen and although I'm not crazy in love with her voice, she sure is a walking sex and has a mostly good performance in this film. It's just a pitty that on 1933 the Oscar for Best costume design didn't exist yet, because if it did, the Lady Lou's impressive gowns would certainly get a movie a nomination in the category - or even win.

Come Back, Little Sheba

I was sort of dissapointed. Burt Lancaster was miscasted in this. And Shirley Booth, well, she does give us a human and honest performance, but when I go to watch an "Academy award winning performance" I expect more. Much more.

Possessed
Possessed(1947)

If I keep watching more Joan Crawford's movies like this one, I might actually believe that she could act. She is very good in "Possessed". All her crazy dependency for a man that she does so well, made me remember Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction". The movie is also scary. I mean, for a 1947 thriller, it has some scares that are much more effective than many suspense movies nowadays.

Min and Bill
Min and Bill(1930)

Sadly is a forgotten movie now, but Marie Dressler performance in this movie deserved attention forever. At a time when actress acted so stagey and melodramatic on the screen, Marie came up with a natural performance and bad mood expression that fits so well to this strong woman, Min. The final scene, that look in her face that mix fatigue and winning feeling is priceless. So modern.

Suspicion
Suspicion(1941)

I felt the movie slow sometimes and my compliment to Joan Fontaine's performance may be weird, but here it goes: her performance is too restrained, but she does a very good job with her fainting scenes.

The Divorcée
½

The movie is short, delicious and speaking about Norma Shearer is funny to recognize that many other actress won Oscars for performances with scenes of despair and crying and fighting and screaming, while Shearer certainly deserved her first - and only - Oscar for this movie for her scenes where she just contemplates the silence. Classy!

The Reader
The Reader(2008)
½

It has its flaws, but that trial scene where Hanna gets to know her sentence always cracks me. Although I think Kate Winslet deserved her first Oscar for her performance in "Revolutionary Road" of that same year, she certainly deserves applauses for her portrayal of Hanna Schmitz.

What's Love Got To Do With It?
½

It's not like Angela Basset incarnated Tina Turner, but let's say that she deserved her Oscar nomination very much. The movie touched me. I guess it's my favorite biopic and despite of that it works as a story of courage and overcoming alone.

Lady Sings the Blues
½

The movie is not that wonderful and let's not fool ourselves. It's not about Billie Holiday either. Diana Ross is no Billie Holiday. The movie is a mere vehicle for her and even though she is nothing like the person that she was intended to be, she shines being somebody else. Top notch costumes and songs.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
½

The "more action" that people claimed for is here now, but is embarassing. There are plenty of embarassing moments from these actors, or should I say, wax figures, because it's what they look when they are acting.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
½

That animated sequence alone deserves all the accolades. It's the darkest Harry Potter movie made. The Hermione's torture scene may disturb the young ones. And what intelligent move from David Yates working this scene off screen. It made it even more scary. He's a genius.

Kitty Foyle
Kitty Foyle(1940)
½

Ginger Rogers proves that she can do more then just dancing. She can fill us with emotions. She can say everything she wants just with her eyes.

Burlesque
Burlesque(2010)
½

The gayest movie of 2010 (maybe the gayest movie I've ever seen?) "Burlesque" deserves a small share of my respect because of the positive surprise called Christina Aguilera, for her strong voice that fits perfectly in this and specially for her beautiful musical number "Bound to you".

Chicago
Chicago(2002)

Richard Gere as a musical actor didn't please me. But the production is elevated thanks to a smart screenplay and editing, cheerful musical numbers, Catherine Zeta Jones, Renee Zellweger and Queen Latifah.

Cabaret
Cabaret(1972)

Liza and Joel present us with vivid, vibrant, colorful performances. The contrast between the Nazi horror and the bliss from the Cabaret will hunt you for a while. The songs will stay with you forever.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
½

Great at any department that I can think about, it made me cry - one of the few movies that made me so. I really can count them with the fingers of one hand - with that flashback, that also proves what a great actor Alan Rickman has been all this time as the complex Severus Snape. Check that out, "Twilight saga" and learn how a flawless and eternal conclusion must be done.

The Rose Tattoo
½

I can't imagine any other actress - any Hollywood actress - in this role. The italian giant of acting, Anna Magnani, carries the movie with such power. The way she claps her hands when she's nervous, her laughs, her big gestures and hot blooded personality. The movie goes great, until Burt Lancaster places on the screen with that ugly, overacted and annoying as hell performance. God, he was miscast in this movie. If I were the director, I would have shot him, for almost have killed the movie. This only didn't happen because of Magnani.

Doctor Zhivago
½

It has one of my favorites works of costume design, cinematography and art direction in a movie. EVER.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
½

The whole movie can be summarized in one scene: Hepburn looking at the sunset with tears in her eyes. This scene alone is worth the ticket.

Twilight
Twilight(2008)

I never was able to watch more than the first 40 minutes of this movie. I'm telling you. Something went really wrong in here. Really wrong.

The Incredibles

So many, but so many live action movies has so much to learn with "The Incredibles". This ANIMATION movie became my favorite ACTION movie of all time.

The Milk of Sorrow (La Teta Asustada)

The visual and the narrative are the high points. But, with such an original subject as this, could this go any wrong?

Some Like It Hot

The best comedy ever made? I'm not sure. But could Marylin Monroe be any sexier? We know the problems she had, that she was not THAT good actress - driving directors crazy for not knowing her lines - but she is very special in some sort of way in this film and she did deserve that Golden Globe that she won.

Born Yesterday

I never thought I could laugh whith a comedy made 60 years ago - Thinking about the number scares me again - but then I did and it was basically because of Judy Holliday. Her screams, her comic timing and gestures. I was curious to know who was that woman that defeated Bette Davis and Gloria Swanson for the award for best actress at the 1951 Academy Awards. I still thinking that Bette and Gloria are giants of acting, but Judy certainly deserved that Oscar.

Norma Rae
Norma Rae(1979)

In this film, Sally Field is not an actress. She's a force of nature. What a performance! As Norma Rae she does so easily what Julia Roberts tried to do as Erin Brockovich. Sally succeeded, while Julia... Well...

The Devil Wears Prada
½

I don't to talk about what everyone already talks. That Streep is terrific as always, that Patricia Field's costumes are great. I wanna talk about what people forget and it's also important. The top of the top selection of musics that were picked up for the score and Emily Blunt showing that she was born for comedies.

Martha Marcy May Marlene
½

I didn't care for Sarah or Hugh's performance, but the movie is packed with brilliant scenes that made me went like "What the...?" For example, the scene where Lucy is in bed with her husband, they're making love, and Martha just comes in and lays down next to them. Applauses for Olsen. Applauses for Sean Durkin.

The Amityville Horror
½

What I like about the original film is the good - in a unnusual care when we're talking about horror films - way that the director places the camera. This kind of care no longer exists in this remake. But what the remake has that the original film hadn't are some good scares. And this is also something very important for a project of this genre.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose
½

I think this movie has one of the best posters ever made. I liked the cinematography very much. It doesn't have many effective scares, but it worked for me, wich is a mistery. And speaking about perfomance, if you think that Linda Blair deserved her Oscar nomination for "The exorcist", join the group that is trying to understand why didn't Jennifer Carpenter get a nomination too for her intense work in this.

The Exorcist
The Exorcist(1973)

It plays with us in such an indescribable way. It's full of images that stayed inside my mind for so long after I've seen it. I closed my eyes and there they were. It's quite a unique ride. Never again a horror movie had the same effect on me.

Antichrist
Antichrist(2009)

Beautiful in its own way, never a movie had made me feel that strong sensation of depression. It was hard to breath with those scenes in extreme slow motion. If I liked to feel this way? No. If I think this is a good movie? Yes, indeed.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)

I was disappointed for not get THAT shocked like I was told I was going to. Okay. The movie is nasty, but let's adimit that there is worse things out there.

Chi sei? (Beyond the Door) (The Devil Within Her) (Who Are You?) (Beyond Obsession)

It's so cheesy and laughable. I found out that Warner Bros. sued the movie for plagiarism, because they thought it was too much like "The exorcist". But, God, if I was an executive from Warner I would just laugh hard at this ridiculous attempt.

Thor
Thor(2011)
½

It might be better than your average super hero flick, but is no big deal. Director Kenneth Branagh's insistence in using the camera in that crooked way irritated me deeply.

The Simpsons Movie
½

Still better than many live action comedies nowadays, but I didn't laugh my *ss off like I did during some episodes of the series.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie
½

I'm a hard one for comedies. It's very hard for a comedy to make me laugh and with this, let's say that I had my decent share of good laughs.

The Tingler
The Tingler(1959)

The movie is slow with things really starting to happen after 47 minutes, but I was THAT surprised to see all of a sudden very red blood in a black and white movie and I had such a good time with the sequence placed at the theatre.

When a Stranger Calls

The long time that the movie goes without nothing happens is what kills the movie, wasting a very good beginning and ending.

When a Stranger Calls
½

weak, weak. Bad, bad. That last - and only - scary at the end it's not nearly enough to compensate the 1 hour and 20 minutes that we had to stand for this fright-free cr*p.

One Missed Call

It's a pity that it didn't work out, because the original movie really had some good possibilities to be explored.

Shutter
Shutter(2008)

There are some movies that Hollywood should let alone, some movies that should never exist and some remakes that should not have been done. Like this one. It's an offense for the original asian production so full of qualities.

Shutter
Shutter(2004)

I had some big scares with this one. It's asian horror at its best.

The Grudge
The Grudge(2004)
½

For sometimes scary, for sometimes silly, it's often weird, and that's an essencial quality to any decent horror film. It's no "The ring" anyway.

Forbidden Games (Jeux interdits)

It's all about Brigitte Fossey's performance. That sad look in her face while she is scratching her cheek... So true and tender. The best work of child - a little girl - on a film that I've ever seen.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
½

Violence didn't shock me at all, Noomi Rapace deserves applauses and I understand they had to show all the points of the book, but I wish it was a bit shorter.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)
½

I was reading about people saying that they cried during this and I just thought "Hell, no!" Then I went to watch it at the theatre and during that so sincerely moving last scene, I cried and I had to shut my mouth about what I've said. (Laughs) This movie touch us - the ones who had follow the other movies of the series - in a way that I had never seen an animation movie doing before I don't expect to see again. And I became a fan of Lots-o' by the way. What can I do? I love villains!

Monsters, Inc.

Just the second movie I had seen in my life - I was nine years old - at the theatre and I remember how I was thrilled with that final sequence when they ride the doors like a rollercoaster and I actually felt like I was riding that rollercoaster. God! I just keep thinking how crazy that scene is going to look this year when the movie gets its 3D conversion.

King Kong
King Kong(2005)
½

The longest movie I've ever watched at the theatre. I was forced, actually, to watch it. I wanted to watch "The exorcism of Emily Rose" but I didn't have enough age to watch it by myself. But despite of that, I couldn't ignore its beauty and heartfelt essence.

Godzilla
Godzilla(1998)

I was six (believe it!) six years old when I watched it at the theatre, and it was the first movie that I've ever watched in a theatre. And instead of getting scared because of the monster because I was so young, I fell asleep. Well, you know what they all say. Children never lie.

Orphan
Orphan(2009)
½

It's overlong, there is not enough scares or gory, but it did surprise me with its intelligent final revelation and not many movies have surprised me lately, so because of this the movie deserves a little respect.

House of Wax
House of Wax(2005)
½

Ok, let's forget about the good classic horror movie that is behind this, let's forget about Paris Hilton and concentrate only on the well executed death scenes, make-up effects and smart final twist.

House of Wax
House of Wax(1953)

By far the scariest horror movie of 1953 (Though I'm not sure that is saying much) of course it could have been a lot more scare with the score better placed and darker cinematography, but there are great moments and the primitive 3-D effects are just priceless.

Blue Valentine

It became my favorite movie to watch at Valentine's day (Laughs). I became a fan of Michelle William's work after watching this. She is responsable for all this to work, to look natural, to look really painful when it has to. Sure Ryan Gosling is great too, but just analyze that abortion sequence or the final fight at the kitchen. The movie belongs to her.

Rachel Getting Married
½

I stopped watching it after 1 hour and 20 minutes. I was so bored. Bill Irwin has one of the most annoying performances of an actor in recent cinema history and Rosemary DeWitt was a tad exaggerated. My 2 and a half stars is only because Anne Hathaway's performance that brings all the felling of "Ok, this is real, this is natural, there are real feelings here" that the movie needs so much.

Jezebel
Jezebel(1938)
½

I used to want to say "This is Bette Davis best performance. And this, and this." But today I know that can't be done, because they are all great in their own importance. But I can say that her role as Jezebel is most certainly one of her greatest. The movie is short, delicious, with a easy plot. Just a nice time.

Gone With the Wind

I have to reveal a secret. I never was able to watch it straight. I mean, sitting there, watching for 4 hours straight. I usually watched the first 2 hours in one day, and the other 2 hours another day (Laughs). Seriously. But this wasn't any obstacle for me to admire the gorgeus visuals and importance of this classic.

A Streetcar Named Desire

We all are aware today of the mental problems that Viven Leigh was having at that time and she gave all that she had left to Blanche Dubois. With her old acting method she did so much for this character that makes impossible for me to imagine any other actress in this role.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

A performance of a lifetime for Elizabeth Taylor. It have always been so rare to see a movie, now or then, where all the actors are great. ALL. No excepition. And this is one of these rare jewelers.

Doubt
Doubt(2008)
½

I was breathless during the fight sequences between these monsters of acting that are Merly and Philip. And what can I say about Amy or Viola? God! They are all great in this movie, even the actors who have smaller parts, like the other nuns and priests and the children. These performances that are certainly out of this world are what make the film great.

The Ring
The Ring(2002)

God, I remember I could only face the TV screen at the scene with the dead girl in the closet after the third time I've seen the movie. One of my favorite horror movies. It's just so successful in everything that proposes.

War of the Worlds
½

I never really felt a connection with any aspect of this at any moment. Aliens didn't scare me, action didn't thrilled me. Jesus, I wonder what went wrong.

Cloverfield
Cloverfield(2008)

The vision I had of the creature had such an effect on me that I didn't see coming. Really. I really got that scared. And I guess this is the big accomplishment that the production is looking for.

[Rec]
[Rec](2007)

I owe so much to this movie. I watched at the cinema - with people really leaving because they were so scared - I'm a big horror movie fan and this was the one that made me believe that there is hope for the genre.

All About Eve

I have no fear about saying that this movie has the best screenplay EVER written. Every single line. All, all perfect. I just have one tiny comment. I understand the sophisticated atmosphere and all, but wouldn't be nice if there was a little bit more action in Margo and Eve's fight. How about Margo really throwing that champagne bottle?

The Great Ziegfeld
½

I wasn't able to get until the end of it (shame on me) but I'll most certainly try because I recognize the three huge qualities of this: A superb art direction, Luise Rainer's inspired performance and the participation of the great star Fanny Brice doing a wonderful work as... Well, as Fanny Brice!

The Snake Pit
½

By the moment Olivia de Havilland, as the problematic Virginia, screams in the kitchen of her apartament - something at 17 or 18 minutes of film - "I CAN'T LOVE ANYBODY!!!" I was hipnotized by her bold and perfect performance.

Cavalcade
Cavalcade(1933)
½

This is a forgotten Oscar winner and, yes, of course it didn't age well, but we can't ignore Diana Wynyard fine performance, the solid art direction work and that amazing final sequence.

Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle

I guess McG thought just like the producers of "Sex and the city 2" thought years later. "Let's just do something noisy and fun!" And what can I say? This is my favorite "bad movie". Just don't expect nothing "Academy Award level" and you'll have a nice time too, just like me.

Scream 4
Scream 4(2011)
½

I was just so thrilled about seeing the old gang back together and they didn't desappoint me. I laughed when I should laugh and - even if the whole thing could have a couple of more effective scares - the twists that were always our favorite thing about the series, still there, and in grand style.

The Blair Witch Project
½

How? How they did it? How could they scared the hell out of us, almost giving us a heart attack with an ordinary scene where a man just stands on a dark corner? Applauses for Daniel Myrick and Bob Griffin.

Paranormal Activity 2

I know this isn't any creative phrase, but I review this film with this thought: A sequel of the bad, only could result in something worse. There isn't anything else I can say.

A Star Is Born
½

I loved the colors and the musics. Judy Garland made me laugh and cry and sing. If that isn't a great performance, what is?

Brave
Brave(2012)
½

I'ts a Pixar animation. There isn't much I can say. The productions are always great. But what I can say is that I'll be crossing my fingers so the movie will get an Oscar for original song for "Into the open air". So touching.

The Dark Knight Rises

Besides all the great aspects (great sound editing and mixing, score and cinematography) the high point is Anne Hathaway's performance, for me one of the best of the year. I came to this conclusion when seeing a brief scene of her, only seconds, when she just puts on a necklace in front of the mirror and stares at herself, because all she feels, thinks and fears, is in her eyes.

The Dark Knight

Recently I wrote that Mo'Nique's performance in "Precious" is one of the best works of a supporting actress in the history of film and now I must say this: In "The dark knight" Heath Ledger has one of the best performances of a SUPPORTING ACTOR in the history of film.

The Descent
The Descent(2006)

My favorite best horror movie in the last recent years, and very probably the best in the genre in thirty years. It was underrated (basically at the box office), but despite anything, I will always remember it as the movie that freaked me out and scared the hell out of me at the first time I saw it.

Elite Squad: The Enemy Within
½

As a brazilian I must say that everyone in my country should see this (and they actually did) because of its competence in talking and studing deeply about some issues that are so present in our lives around here today. And for the rest of the audiences around the world I say that they must see this because, well, it's just movie making at its best.

Dogtooth (Kynodontas)

I fell in love with the intensity and weirdness of the movie that ended up inspiring me so much, as a writter.

Rosemary's Baby
½

Aside of all the good things that has been said about the movie (of course Mia Farrow is terrific and, yeah, of course it's frightening) just let me say one thing. Something most important about this production and people forget. Anybody who watchs the movie and then read the book (or vice versa) will be sure that this is perhaps the movie screenplay that has the most respect for its source material than any other movie before.

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire
½

Mo'Nique's performance in here is one of the best work of a supporting actress in the history of the movies. Period.

Dreamgirls
Dreamgirls(2006)

I consider Jennifer Hudson's performance overrated, but anyway... This was a film that made the songs stayed in my mind for a long time and when a musical is able to do this, you know that it scored big, because it's one of its main ambitions. Add the great costumes and art direction and you have something that is really worth seing.

Frozen River
Frozen River(2008)

It feels so natural and true. For moments and thought I was watching a documentary and not a piece of fiction. Really good. I wanted to watch again. And I am pretty aware of the fact that all this is because of the great Melissa Leo.

We Need to Talk About Kevin

This movie will hunt me for a long time and after that particular experience, all the beauty and precision of Tilda Swinton's work will have my respect and admiration forever.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Surprisingly good. Andy Serkis indescribable performance in this film was way underestimated in awards seasons over the globe. Ok, he is "dressed up" with a digital figure, but, come on... His movements, his look (oh, that look)... It's all his merit and it's all great.

The Sting
The Sting(1973)
½

Well, what can I say? Now I'm officially convinced that "The exorcist" was robbed at the 1974 Academy awards. "The Sting" has a good rythm, but it isn't all that. To Redford it was fair an Oscar nomination, but no win. Newman so deserved a nomination too. But speaking of Oscar, what I really thing that is valid is that the movie won for best costume for its great work with male suits and ties and hats, because, let's face it, what win the Oscar for best costume for movies is always big female period ball gowns.

Coming Home
Coming Home(1978)

So much deseverd Oscar to Voight. To Fonda... Not so much. Voight has his Oscar worth moment in that moving final speech. And speaking of necessary and unnecessary Oscars, the one who really deserverd one in here was Bruce Dern for such strong and comitted work, but this sadly didn't happen.

Paranormal Activity

Not good at all. I recognize they had a lot of good intentions making this, but a 85 minutes horror movie that only is a horror movie in its final ten minutes, can't be good at any level.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

I remember having such a good time watching this at the cinema. And everybody else in the full cinema too. The movie is all about what a really good blockbuster should be.

Central Station (Central do Brasil)

I'm not a huge fan of the movie as a whole, but, how come haven't Fernanda Montenegro got the Oscar? It was the best female performance of that year. But instead they gave the award to Gwyneth Paltrow. Really?!

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
½

The beginning is slow, but after the moment the great Bette Davis fills the screen every flaw is forgiven and I really wanted to press the replay button all the time, because her performance in here is something that need to be studied.

The Shining
The Shining(1980)

It feels overlong and tired sometimes, but in the end we get this weird feeling inside, and that, my friends, is something that only great horror movies can do.

The Last Picture Show
½

Really impressive performances. I was particularly enchanted by Timothy Bottoms performance. Ok, he has one or two flaws in his acting, but why he didn't get at least an Oscar nomination?

P.S. I Love You

Probably the worst piece of film I've ever seen. Because, Jesus, nothing fits in here. Screenplay, direction, costume... Everything seems out of place. And that makes me so sad because I'm really a huge fan of Lisa Kudrow. Why? Why in heavens name did she get into this mess?

Terms of Endearment
½

I don't see it as a tearjerker or exagerated production. God! It has all the qualities of an unforgettable film: It's sad, it's funny, it's so well succeed in touching our hearts.

Pariah
Pariah(2011)
½

I guess I only didn't find it superb, because I went for it with such high expectations, but one thing is for sure: Adepero Oduye has a star-making performance in here.

They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
½

What an amazing surprise was watch this! An experience that could've easily been depressing and overlong, was actually inspiring and made me want to watch it again, pretty much because of the great work of all the actors involved.

V/H/S
V/H/S(2012)

I was so impressed by this. I can't remember the last time when a horror film made me look to other direction, 'cause I couldn't face the little screen. I'm just so sad that this production didn't receave the attention that it deserves.

Eaten Alive
Eaten Alive(1977)

The last five minutes of it is great. So powerful, eletric. Boom, boom. Everything happens at the same time in such a good rithym. But, saddly, all the rest do not live up to the fine conclusion.

Love and Other Drugs
½

It's like the whole thing is two different movies. The first is a so-so comedy about medicines and the second part is a drama comedy about sickness. I prefered very much the second part thanks to Anne Hathaway amazing performance that should get some Oscar attention.

Bagdad Cafe
Bagdad Cafe(1988)

The cinematography is good to look at and the theme song deserved the Oscar nomination, but, hole Jesus, the movie is full of terrible performances. The characters are just awkward, stucked in awkward situation. I mean, I love "art house" movies, but I just wished this one ended as soon as possible. Now researching about the movie I'm just surprise with all the acclaim it got. Weird...

The Red Shoes

The ballet sequence is really like something out of a dream. The entire film is. Magical. It makes you want to whistle the score and watch the whole thing all over again.

Black Swan
Black Swan(2010)

We're totally convinced that the Oscar statuette belongs to Natalie Portman at the moment those tears fall from her eyes in the movie's climax.

The Iron Lady

It's a boring movie - I watched it pressing the fast forward button - that features the BEST performance of an actress in 2011. Meryl Streep has her Oscar worthy moment in a simple scene where she is just sitting on a chair and staring at empty. Perfect!

From Here to Eternity
½

It's definitely not one of my favorite Oscar winners, with only a couple of memorable sequences, but the real question is: Why in God's name did Sinatra and Reed get Oscars here for theirs just "ok" performances?

The Final Destination

Not even the 3-D can save this mess that features the worst visual effects in decades.

Sex and the City 2

Yes, the ending is painful, but it does feature some of the good elements that made of the series what it is.

La Vie en Rose (La Mome)

The whole thing works thanks to Cotillard's "out of this world" performance.

Of course it could have been better, but still an original and - sometimes - creepy production.

The Amityville Horror

I just don't get it why there is so much talk about it. The whole thing is so dull... And I'm a horror movie fan!

Silent Hill
Silent Hill(2006)

The movie was sadly underated. Sure, it has flaws, but it's - without a doubt - the best game adaptation ever made.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

It is all about the last 20 minutes. The rest is garbage...

It will have some Oscar attention in the technical categories, but the whole pack itself isn't groundbreaking at all.
