I am not a great fan of romantic movies but i enjoyed this one, it's very well acted and directed. Not the most original story, but it caught my attention. It's the little story of two normal people on the (very distant) background of the great story of WWII.
A simple but funny, colorful, moving, heartfelt adventure from master Miyazaki. The closest thing to it is, in my opinion, UP from Pixar: not for the story, but for the good, warm, peaceful feelings that put in your soul.
Not so scary, but deeply disturbing. The kind of movie that gives an uneasiness that stucks with you for a while. But the ending was a bit strained and weak: perhaps many people liked it, but i loved the ambiguous atmosphere of the movie and i think an ambigous ending was what this, otherwise great, movie would have deserved.
This movie has only one, huge problem: the original. It tries to get the very same atmosphere of the original (and some scenes are really similar) and i felt that this weigthed it down. In fact, when it goes free on a new and original direction, it's brilliant. If we don't compare to his unmatchable prequel and we consider 2049 for itself, it's a masterpiece, one of the best movies i've seen in last years. VFS are stunning (it deserves an Oscar, at least for them) and Gosling totally nailed his part : i was sceptical when i read he would have played the main character (he's a fine actor, i simply thought he didn't suit the Blade Runner feeling) but he totally bought me, he added so many little nuances to his role without being a copy of Harrison Ford. I was really worried when i read a sequel to Blade Runner was in production, since i really really love that movie. But 2049 turned out in a fantastic movie and i've been really sad that he was not a box office success.
A very well crafted low budget horror movie, but with too many plot holes, unexplained things and unbeliavable moments. I really wanted to like the movie, but there's too much of everything with too little time to assimilate things and basically with no explaination (for example: ****SPOILER ALERT***** one for all: how did Mister escape the vampires, when the fanatics leave him with them? we see him killing a couple of them...but then what happened? he killed him with his bare hands? **** END OF SPOILERS **** ) I read it was thought initially as a (web) series and i think it would have been a fantastic series (even if really too similar to The Walking Dead) , but as a movie it seems an entire series packed together in one single episode. Photography is very good (some shots are excellent), the score is great, i liked the horror bits of the movie and there's creativity (even if within the cliches of the genre) and talent, but i think that with a different story (less things all together, more time to get to them, more time to assimilate events) it would have turned in a little gem.
