12/20ONCE UPON A TIME IN
MEXICOYou bet I
was not gonna miss this one: Johnny Depp and Antonio Banderas!!! I loved El
Mariachi and Desperado and was looking forward to this third chapter! I was
fairly disappointed. It's fun to watch alright, but it didn't have the "body"
of the first two! I thought the script was pretty poor and even sometimes
confusing. A little bit too much! Too "bely bottom" oriented if you see what I
mean! "Look at my movie, I know how to do that kind of stuff"!!!
the actors are great (nothing new here!), a better story was needed. And Selma
Hayek too! I was so disappointed you don't see her very much (once again,
trailers lie! She's all over it!). She is such a babe! I was drooling in
Anyway, not a bad movie but not as good as Desperado for sure!
Still, it has the Rodriguez touch all over (even in the music!) and just that
is worth a visit to the movie theater!!!
In the pure tradition of "Gunfight
at O.K. corral", this new Kevin Kostner western rules! No matter what the
critics said (they hated "Dances with woolves" those dumb asses!), it's a
really cool movie. Very ecological, as most of K.Kostner movies, very simple
and efficient. Robert Duvall is awesome as usual. The beautiful Annette Benning
is a nice "plus"! Has a humanistic/sincere touch I loved. Kevin Kostner did a
great job: the cinematography/photo is superb. One critic called it simplistic:
so be it! That's what a good western should be. The bad guys, the good guys.
Built in tension, end by a gun fight! If you don't like calssical western, then
don't go. But if you do, this movie is surely for you. The only bad thing is
that it's a bit too long sometimes. 15 to 20 mins too long. Other than that,
good job and hope to see more Kevin Kostner movies whether it's directing or
acting. Go see it, you'll have a great time.
12/20LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER: THE CRADDLE
again, in my opinion, the movie failed to deliver an intelligent plot that
would allow Miss Jolie to show that she is not just a pretty face that can't
act! Too bad, they had plenty of opportunity. Okay the movie has more action,
more stunts (cool ones actually), is faster and louder...so yes it's a better
movie than the first one! Still, with a good director like Jan de Bont (Speed,
Twister) it should have been way better. I think he just directed it as the
studio wanted than put his own mark on the movie!
Now, after saying that,
the only thing I can tell you is: "Who cares"!!! Hehee! There is Angelina Jolie
and it is enough to get all the horny males (and me) to the theater! Yep, true!
Doesn't make it a good movie but mama mia, is she something in that silver
suit!! She is hotter than in the first one! Hey, maybe if they make a number
three we will see her naked again! Wouldn't you like that!? I know you would! I
would! You know me: I love men, have a slight preference for men when it comes
to sex. Now with Angelina, that tiny preference will just fly! LOL!
basically, I didn't care about the movie! Yes I confess. I didn't really follow
the story and would not be able to tell you about it! I was there just to see
Angelina. I did. I am happy! So if you are a true Angelina fan, run Forrest
run: your theater might still be open!!
14/20BAD BOYS II
Another big blockbuster of the
summer but for me the expected sequel to Bad Boys! I was worried about Michael
Bay! His recent work was not that great! I loved the first Bad Boys and I loved
this one too! Martin Lawrence crack me up. I am glad he has as much screen
presence than Will Smith. He is hilarious! Will Smith in another hand is cool
but the only thing I didn't like is that he is borderline "feminine"! You know,
it's like Roger Moore in James Bond! Not man enough!!!
No matter what, I got
what I paid for: great action, great lines, great Martin Lawrence, great
director, and cherry on the cake, a new babe: Gabrielle Union! I know she is
not new to the big screen but in this Bad Boys, ouh la la! Hot! Very hot!
Bathing suit or just in suit, she is A babe!
Don't listen to the critics
that always find the movie too long, too this or not enough that! It's a nice
moment at the movies is all! Sure it won't win an Oscar! But who cares! I heard
some people saying that there was too much F word, too much cursing! Fuck them!
LOL! Seriously, it's a Bad Boys movie so what do you expect? Shakespeare? Come
One of the best car chase I have seen in a while, lots of cool explosion
and one of the best duo in the US movie history! We want more and if the
critics don't like it, we love it!
Go see them Bad Boys, you'll have a great
time! Martin, love you man! LOL!
13/20PIRATES OF THE
Another big blockbuster for the summer! I am always curious to see
at what sauce they will it the poor moviegoers each summer!?!! Well, the only
reasons I had to go, was Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush. Two of my favorite
actors. For the rest, I was not expecting anything fancy! I was wrong: really
cool movie. Except maybe for young children, anybody can go and have some fun.
Johnny Depp is out of that world! What a class actor! He can play ANYTHING! And
he is ssssso sexy! And he likes French girls! LOL! He has married one! Maybe
one day in Paris...Okay okay...just dreamin'...
Anyway, G.Rush is also
fantastic! Nothing new here! He is not sexy for sure but I was surprised to see
him in a movie like this!
The chick is cute (even though she won't win an
award for her acting!), but not cute enough to make me look at anybody else but
Johnny Depp!! Great action, great cinematography, cool lines, sense of
humor...a colorful cocktail that makes a movie entertaining! The kind of movie
you don't have to think about anything else but just having fun!
regret the few bucks it cost you!! Go see it!
He's back! So was I!!! You bet I
was not gonna miss Schwarzy in his best character!
Very entertaining movie.
I know there was a lot of controversy about the fact that the movie was not
directed by James Cameron, didn't have Edward Furlong (I wish he was in the
movie), or Linda Hamilton. You know what? Didn't matter to me! I didn't like
Titanic (as you know! LOL!) so I was actually kind of hoping we wouldn't have
Cameron directing another Hamilton love story!! Hehee! I didn't care much for a
character since I thought she was doing a bit too much overacting in
Except for Ed Furlong, I really didn't care, especially knowing Claire
Dane was in the movie. I really like her very much. She is one of the unchanted
actresses! She delivers a modest but efficient performance in T3. Hope we'll
see her again in T4...
The Terminatrix is yummy!!! She should be a
TerminatriXXX!! LOL! Boy, is she sexy! She played the character perfectly well.
It looks like she was made for it! Bring her back in T4!! Encore!!!
is THE Terminator. Period. He will always be. Nobody can replace him. He has
the Terminator "aura". He has never been cooler in any other character. So once
again, he delivers! I thought it will all be special effect after special
effect and I was pleasantly surprised it was not. Great action where the CGI
are put where they belong! Good director, whatever James Cameron purist will
say! The movie has some funny moment and some cool line. Of course it's a
franchise so you cannot except the movie to be as great as number 1. Still, a
very good moment at the theater! Go see it!!!
don't look for it on the screen! I don't think it ever hits the US in
theaters!? Anyway, I bought that DVD from Ebay. It's a Korean DVD and if you
are a Matrix fan (I mean the way the movie is done), you will certainly enjoy
this kick ass movie.
I had a fantastic time! The movie take place in a
Korean College where students from different "Clubs" (you know like Kappa,
Alpha...never remember the English word for it!?), compete pretty violently to
get a Magic Book that would give them the ultimate power...until a new student
I know, nothing really new and excititng in the story, but trust
me, the action is absolutely awsome. You never seen a movie like this before!
It puts the Matrix action fights to the rank of "ok/ so so"! The effects are
out of that world and the choregraphy of the fight is fabulous. Even if you are
not a big fan of Asian action movies you will like the movie (of course if you
like Matrix type of movies!). It's never boring, has lots of funny moments and
certainly one of the best fighting/special effects movie I ever seen (if not
the best!)! Rent it (but your Blockbuster probably don't have it!?), and if you
are a HK movie fan, buy it, you won't regret (Ebay, about $12 to $14 -- even
though I hate to do free publicity for jerks like Ebay)!
12/20CHARLIE'S ANGELS FULL
the first one came out I told you I liked it very much! Well, I am telling you
the same right now! LOL! It's a nice piece of entertainment, really! Of course,
don't expect a real plot/story: it's just a gigantic video clip to the glory of
the 3 angels! In fact, like on MTV where most of the clip show skin, I wanted
to see some "Angels 'skin"!! Hey, you can't blame me! I'll buy it on DVD and in
the darkness of my living room, while everybody is sleeping, I'll watch the
movie with one hand! LOL!
Cameron Diaz is gorgeous and funny (although I
think they didn't need to make her a bit silly sometimes), Drew Barrymore is
sexy and kick ass...as for Lucy Liu, Mama Mia!!! I felt really hot for a while,
especially in that scene, in the strip club when she does the "whip dance"!
It's really really hot! A must have on DVD to see over and over! As for Miss
Demi Moore, I rather not describe what I feel when I see her on the screen:
it's rated X!!!
The movie by itself? Nothing great, nothing bad. Lots of
action sequence, one after the other, some funny moment, some bad CGI (weird
for a big budget movie?), and frankly I wonder why they put the excelent stand
up comedian as Bosley!? He really is funny as a stan up, but in my opinion, the
movie needed someone else! Oh well, it's not big deal! If there is only front
rows for T3, go see this nice summer flick! Worth your bucks!!!
15/2028 DAYS LATER
Screw the critics! I loved it!
Danny Boyle did a fantastic job with this movie! Well, so far everything I saw
form this English director has been brilliant! Maybe not commercially speaking
but in my opinion he is really one of the most talent director there is today!
And he takes on movies that are so differents (Trainspotting, A life less
Ordinary, The Beach)! 4 Thumb ups for Danny Boyle! LOL!
The choice of the
main character is great! That guy has so much intensity. I hope he will have a
long career! The way the movie is filmed (probably in video mixed with
something!? Dunno!?) is very clever. It accentuates the atmosphere of the
movie. Camera works is awesome!
If you think you will see a horror movie,
think again! It's not just that! There is much more to it. It's much more
chilling than horrible in a sense. The reflection of our society is really
scary. Human nature! Large subject!
I know D.Boyle is a Fan of Night of the
Living Dead, but I think he brought his touch to this Zombie story like he has
done in all of his movie. He is really gifted to take a simple story and make
it frightning in all aspect. If you have never scene his movie Shallow Grave
(the best of all for me), rent it! Even better, buy it on DVD! Talking about
human nature! You'll see!
I truly enjoy the choice of actors. I should get
the DVD of this 28 days later soon so I might actually raise this 15 to
something higher! Right now, nothing better on the screen anyway! Go,
Not bad! Actually pretty good! I
was expecting much worst! I should have figured that since Ang Lee was the
director (Crounching Tiger) it would be better than expected. And it was!
will offer a lifetime membership to anybody that can get me into Jennifer
Connely's bed! LOL! Boy isn't she gorgeous! As much talent than
Anyway...the movie was really well choregraphed, as the comic book!
The cinematography is fantastic and if you look carefully there are several
discreet tribute to classical movies (like King Kong). It's way more esthetical
than I was expecting. I know, it's still lots of CGI and action but hey, I had
a great time just watching Ang Lee magic!
Never seen the guy that play Bruce
Banner before but I think he was a great choice. Now, Nick Nolte is fabulous as
usual! That voice! I could regognize it anywhere. Certainly one of the best US
actor. I wish we would see him in more movies.
I know Hulk doesn't say the
tradityional "Hulk smash" but even though (as you know already) I am not a big
Marvel Fan, I have read that it respects the comic book pretty much! Overall,
it's a very well filmed movie with strong moment! Go see it!
ever seen a bad moie with Ed Norton? (well, hum...yes one!) It is a tough thing
to find! Now, add Charlize Theron and it becomes even more
Charlize...one of my top 5 babes! Not only yummy but talented!
You know very often fans ask me if I would like to do regular movies and I
always answer no, since I am not an actress and my ego is not that big! But
damn, when I see Charlize, I wish I could be on a real movie set. Not acting,
but cleaning her trailer and whatnot!!! :))
Anyway...awesome movie. Wish
they would do more like this one. The director usually does pretty good movie
(like Set it off) but this time he did more than a good job! It reminds me a
bit of John Frankenheimer: great stunts, non stop action, simple but efficient
plot, great choice of actors...even though I am not a big Mark Wahlberg fan. I
would have chosen someone else but he did a good job! Too bad Donald Sutherland
doesn't have a bigger role in the movie. I like him so much. The Napster stuff
is hilarious. Yes, great dialogs, I forget that!
If you want to see a movie
where you won't be bored one second, with a sexy babe and cool stunts, you
can't find any better right now!
probably know already if you read my review of the X-Men 1, I am not that
familiar with Marvel characters. So I got a little help from my hubby (he is a
real Marvel fan!). Basically, even though they re-arranged the original X-men,
it still make sense and they kept the story of each mutant. I liked the first
one very much and for once, this sequel also kick ass! I really had a great
time, especially watching super babe Halle Berry!!! Oh biy, do I wish...but
it's another story!! :)
Not so many special effect, or at least they were
used to serve the story. The actors are really into their characters, the rythm
of the movie is very good, the photography awesome (but it's nothing new with
director Bryan Singer -- The Usual Suspects)...all the ingredients to make that
sequel even better than the original. I just regret we don't see enough of
Iceberg (one of the original X-men). Ian McKellen is phenomenal as usual. Boy,
two trilogy for him: this one and Lord of the Rings! Great work! Fantastic
actor, lot of charisma.
Great action, great acting, great action movie! I
know, you wonder why I didn't gave him more than 14 then!! Well, it's just an
action movie folks, but a really good one! Go see it and bring your girlfriend
(I am sure she has something for Hughes Jackman or...Halle Berry!!!
don't know if it has reloaded, but surely the story/plot hasn't! It's special
effect after special effect! Of course they are fabulous, but once agian, where
is the story? I heard it was a transition movie before the next "Matrix
Revolution"! Hope so! It's too long! Too slow when they are not 2000 special
effects per frame! Lots of blah blah about the "One" and what he is suppose to
be...ennoying! I regret the first Matrix...was WAY better!
Some good things
though: the Albinos Twins are fantastic! Great sequence. Proof that you can use
special effects to enhance a sequence, not the opposite! Also the gorgeous and
sexy Monica Bellucci. She is number one female performer in Europe, no wonder
why: "Hey Babe!!!"! Yummy! That dress...I still have goose pumps!
good surprise is kick ass Jada Pinket Smith! She is so cute and pretty and has
so much energy. I surely hope we will see more of her in the next
The best part of that sequel is "Agent Smith" (Hugo Weaving). He
kicks ass! He is great! Hey, don't get me wrong: it's not a bad movie! I just
wish they would have taken all the ennoying existential blah blah and the "too
long of a" love story between K.Reeves and Carry Ann Moss, then it would have
been way better. Little less special effect and more stunts, although some are
breath taking! Go see it just before Matrix Revolution (in November) then maybe
it will make a bit more sense!
Very good surprise! I was not
expecting such a good movie. The beginning of the movie is bretah taking. I was
shocked! Never seen any movie from that director but I surely will. I don't
understand why we don't see Jason Patrick more often, at least in that kind of
character. He is brilliant in this movie. Very sober way to play the role, very
efficient. Pacino didn't do a better job in Serpico (even though the story was
way different)! Add Ray Liotta at his best and you get a really good movie. The
story works incredibly well. I was very impressed.
Lots of people have said that Traffic was great and I agree so if you liked the
way Traffic was filmed, you will like this movie as well. It is not an action
movie, although it's far from being slow and even though there are some very
quck sequence. But it's more like "dramatic moments" than "action moments"!
Maybe I don't make sense! He hee! If you see the movie I am sure you'll
understand what I am saying. Not to recommend to sensitive people: it's fairly
violent. Although it's not violent for the pleasure of being violent but
because it serves the story. A pretty depressing movie but a great job! Two
thumbs up they say!!! Rent it if you missed it at the theater (like I did,
shame on me!)
Another movie I will surely
integrate in my Top 50! I knew Roman Polanski was very talented, but these last
year, he has done nothing tremendous. Good, but not great! With this "Pianist",
he came back to the rank he deserved: one of the best director on the planet!
I don't care about the man's controversy since I don't know what's true or
not. He just directed a beautiful movie. You can argue that sometimes there are
stuff that are not necessary to the movie, but I just think he did a great job
at telling a story, with no complaisance, no voyeurism. He didn't try to make
it a piece of art. Just telling a horrific story.
Lots of movie have been
done on WWII, the Holocaust, concentration camps, etc. Lots of great movie also
(Schindler List would be my top choice). So it was not easy to do another one
and that's why I think he made a beautiful movie. He did a different movie,
with calm, authority, no judgment. With passion.
It is a very sad, brutal
and passionate. Lots of shocking details but the camera never really stop on
them. That's why I said he didn't fall into cliches. Still, very strong images,
beautifuly filmed by a great artist.
Adrian Brody, the pianist, is
incredible. He has that intensity in his eyes. No need for any dialog.
Everything goes through his eyes. The movie carries a huge impact through
Adrian Brody's eyes. It's probably drier than Schindler List, certainly more
brutal, but in the end, it's also a masterpiece. Please, go see it!
12/20CRADLE 2 THE
if you want something intelectual, or some kind of nice plot, this movie isn't
for you!!! LOL! Now if you want some non stop action, breathless stunt, or
awesome fights, you will surely be happy! What else can you expect from JET LI
in a US production? :)
So I went and got what I expected: cool fights and
action sequences! Very well filmed and choregraphed. I love Jet Li's movies
anyway! I know, it doesn't sound like me but it's my movie relaxation. Plus he
did so may great Chinese movies: I love Chinese and Hong Kong movies! I
actually prefer him in Chinese movies (if you have the chance to see his latest
movie, Hero, don't hesitate! Fabulous!).
Now, there is also DMX! I don't
care much for his music, although it's not bad, but he is damn sexy!!! He has
incredible eyes...Okay I know, you don't care! Just the chicks!!!
might not be a real clever movie, but it was surely a lot of fun! Go see the
movie, you'll have a great time!
I must say that if I decided to
give it a 14 it's not for the quality of the movie but for the quality of the
actors. The director is usally a good/ok director but nothing fancy in his
filmography!! So if I gave it a 14, it's of course for Al Pacino and Colin
Farrell. Well, we all know about the great Al Pacino, so nothing really new
here: put him in any turkey and he will still be one of the greatest actor
ever! Now, Colin Farrell! As far as I remember, I didn't see one bad movie with
him (you can correct me if I am wrong). I would say that his badest movie was
that war movie with Bruce Willis, but even then, he was so good that the movie
ended up being way better than it should have been. He is probably the fastest
growing talent in Holywood right now, and there is a very good reason to that:
he is (excuse my French!) FUCKING AWESOME!
The whole movie is built between
him and Pacino. take this two guys out, and you'll see that the movie isn't
that great anymore! I mean the whole idea of the movie was a good idea, but it
turned out to be just another Holywood spy movie!
A simple reason then to go
see it: "You went for Al Pacino, you stayed for Colin Farrell"!!! (and of
course, Mr Pacino is still one of the very best!!!). Which brings me to: what's
wrong with Hollywood today? They have all these great actors and actresses, new
and old (sorry Al!), and they keep putting them in weak movies (at some
exception -- see David Gale below). Where is the good old time when you would
have the great actors and also the great script?
Fan of Kurt Russel, you don't want
to miss this movie! I said "fan" because I don't think the movie is that great!
I mean don't get me wrong, it's not a bad movie at all. I just think that could
be a way better! For example: more Ving Rhames! His character needed to be
developed way more! I was a bit disappointed because I thought Ron Shelton, the
director would do a better job. I liked "play it to the Bone" even though it
was not a great movie, and I really liked "White Men can't jump!". I guess he
had the traditional Hollywood pressure and couldn't do what he
Anyway...Kurt Russel is good as usual, still has that tremendous
charisma, but the script is really weak: seen that, been there...I wish they
would have offered him a better story, or tell the story a different way!
you saw all the big nice movies and didn't see this one, still worth your
16/20THE LIFE OF DAVID
say that in these recent years, we didn't hear or saw much from Alan Parker. A
bummer considering his past movies! So it's with a lot of interest that I went
and see this movie. The fact that there is one of my favorite actor, Kevin
Spacey, in the movie was another reason I wouldn't miss it!
I was so right
(but am I not always right!? LOL!)!!! The movie is brilliant. The actors are
brilliant. The script is brilliant. The cinematography is brilliant. What else
is there to say?
Alan Parker made Mississipi Burning several years ago and I
thought it was one of the best, if not the best, movie made on racism. Now,
with this "Life of David Gale", he probably made one of the best, if not the
best, movie about the death penalty.
If you don't just rush to see that
movie, you will be missing surely what I consider the best movie of the year so
far! Surely will end up in my Top 50 (or better). I wish there would be more
movies made like this one. It's interesting, passionate, keeps you on the edge,
incredible actors (all of them),...and tremendously directed. 40 thumbs up for
Alan Parker and Kevin Spacey! GO SEE IT NOW!
You probably already heard that the
movie was kind of boring! It's half true! I mean, it's tough to say it is
boring, just because I think it's a really nice movie. Let's just say it's a
bit long sometimes. Now, all three actresses are fantastic! To have the courage
to be ugly in a movie when you are a babe in real life take some guts: so
tremendous ovation to Nicole Kidman. I still think she deserved an award last
year, but I am not sure she should be nominated for best actress this year!
Supporting actress would have been more accurate! Now Julian Moore surely
deserve a nomination for best actress this year! She is fabulous (and gorgeous)
in this movie. So is Meryl Streep evven though I usually don't like her that
These three actresses deserve "an ensemble cast award"! Too bad it
doesn't exist for the Oscars! LOL!
I rarely seen so much talent gathered in
one movie. So even though you might think the movie is a bit boring (only
several times, I am telling you!), you should see it for these incredible
As for the script, yes, you will probably end up depressed after
seeing the movie! It would be tough to go into any explanation though, so I let
you being your own judge. Oh one more thing: Ed Harris is still one of the
biggest unchanted actor of our time! He was not cast for a big character in
this movie but he surely is AWESOME! When is it that Hollywood will give him
the role of his life!? Fabulous Ed Harris!
About Nicholson should be the movie
title! LOL! Whatever you put him in it tuens great! Not that the movie is great
but if you took Nicholson out of the movie you would end up with a 5/20 not a
12!!! Basically, the script is nothing new, even though some little things here
and there make it better (like Ndugu!). The director didn't do a tremendous
job! Honnest let's call it! But if you take Jack Nicholson out of the movie and
you replace him with...let's say...Tom Cruise? LOL! No seriously if you would
have put an okay actor instead of Jack, you would end up with a mediocre movie.
He carries the movie from the first minute to the last! The other actors are
not bad (especially Delmot Mulroney) but frankly the movie is a little boring
sometimes! It's like "come on, move on..." kind of movie! Still, since they
didn't replace Nicholson by Tom Cruise, it remains a nice moment to spend at
the theater! Nicholson surely deserve another award, but hey, he deserve one
almost every year!! LOL!
14/20THE 25TH HOUR
At the exception of one or two of
his movies, I do not like Spike Lee very much! Now I do like Edward Norton a
lot! One of the very best, and quite frankly, except for "Death to Smoochie" I
didn't see any bad movie with him! So I put my pride in my pocket and went,
thinking "ah well, if the movie sucks at least I will see Ed Norton!".
have seen WAY better than that! Incredible performanbce by E.Norton and Philip
Seymour Hoffman. Great performance by Barry Pepper! Spike Lee signed his best
movie (in my opinion). I think I will wait the DVD to see if I classify it in
my Top 50! Well shot, great and unusual script, never boring, never complaisant
or voyeur. Sober. No overacting! Very moving! Not to be seen if you are
depressed though! Spike Lee hurts, Big Apple is in pain...fantastic
It doesn't matter that some people said it was not coherent, or it
was self important...some people will surely be irritated by some visuals!
Still, I do not think it's confusing and each character is very well thought
and they are all bound together even though it's by difference! Tough to
explain such a complex story, sorry if I don't make much sense!
Hoffman proves once more than he deserves a lead in a great movie! I wish that
day will come! As for Edward Norton, no need to say he is probably the most
gifted talent of these past 5 years! Go see this movie, then maybe you will
think "rebecca lost it" or maybe you will agree! It's going to be one or the
16/20GANG OF NEW
has it been since Martin Scorcese made a movie? Frankly, I don't remember! But
surely WAY too long! Plus the movie was suppose to be released last Xmas and
they postponed it to re-shoot some sequence and went back to editing! I was so
happy that I can finally see it! Too bad they cut so many things out of it!
Have to wait the DVD to be able to see the final cut! Stupid producers! I
though J.Cameron proved that a long movie can be VERY succesful! I guess people
Oh well, for now, I am okay with that version! Daniel Day Lewis is
GREAT! I didn't see the Nicholson movie yet, but so far DDLewis is my choice
for the best actor award this year! Tremendous performance! Of course Caprio is
great also but D.D.L steal the show! I would have liked a bit more Liam Neeson
but hey, I am alsways unsatisfied! Cameron Diaz is pretty good too! Well
everybody is good in this movie! Martin Scorcese, once again, did a sublime
movie, with a fantastic cinematography, incredible decors and costumes and
prove that you can have action and a great script without going stupid!
cannot miss this movie or shame on you! Another master piece form one of the
best director ever! GO, NOW!!!
14/20LORD OF THE RING: TWO
sequel to last year blockbuster and more important, THE adventure continues!
One of the best book I ever read! But let's not go that way! it's impossible to
top the book! Good thing the director didn't try! Last year I said he did a
pretty good and faithful job! I would say the same this year! I know, for the
purist, some stuff are missing! But you would need 4 hours episodes to be able
to put everything on the screen!
So good job, fantastic cinematography and
natural decors, powerful CGI (the first one had some "not-that-good effects!).
All the ingredients to a great sequel! Actors are great (see the review of the
first movie), and I think this sequel is even better than the first episode!
All the shots with Gollum are fantastic! I wonder how will be the next episode?
Better than this one!?
One of the best moment remains the final battle! And
of course the inner battle with Frodo and the ring! There are too many good
things in the movie I can describe them all! Tough to find anything bad in this
sequel! Funny, it makes me think of Star Wars! Lots of people said that The
Empire Strikes Back is the best of the three (well now 5!!). Let's hope there
will be no Ewoks in the Lord of the Ring #3!! LOL!
Overall, the best
