Best Movie Critique Review:

Hi there to my film readers...

I think I post this again in the past, I'm very convinsed that many people like me go to a movie just to see the work of a director...

is a story with history, many books, many articles, tones of paper in police offices but nothing that specific about the Zodiac.
And here comes the new work of David Fincher that gives the serial killer named Zodiac a new face, something more than the film that described him and not even came close to the facts...

David Fincher is a director who knows well how to create rhythm of anxiety in the audience even if all his films are more than 2 hours none of them has boring parts.

Zodiac is a movie that you don't expect the end so you can find out about the killer
it's the hole atmosphere and the police plot with the real facts that leads you to the conclusion.
It's a movie where you decide if you believe or not the police desicion ...
I receive the whole movie as a sequence of facts and that made me see why zodiac seems so real.

It's a long movie but if you've seen "seven" you completly understand how David Fincher directs...

I recommend you to see that movie cause it's based on events and not in myths...

That's all for now !
have a great day.

Best Movie Critique Review:

Hi there to my film readers...

I know it's been a long time !

but here I go again with "Ocean's 13

I saw this movie yesterday in my place with a friend of mine who adores...!
Bradd Pitt , i'm a fun of Soderbergh so I really want to see how the 3rd part would work and I was really curious to see how the gang would maintain their good shape in stage !

I have to admit that the last one (Ocean's 12) wasn't that good especially the scenario was week but in this part we have a great addition to staff Al pacino as the bad guy in "Ocean's 13"!

Everytime I see Al in that kind of roles I think his the only really cool actor has left in the screen ...
I loved his role not too big so he could be the main character and not too small so he passes by like a cameo ...

One of the highlights was the moment when Pitt comes in Clooney's room and see him cryin' ...
I'm not saying anything else if you'll see "Ocean's 13" you are going to laugh.

Ocean's 13 is not "the" movie but it's a movie that can provide you an entertaining night with popcorn and good friends.

I suggest you to rent "Ocean's 13" and enjoy the 1h35m show ...

Untill my next post (I hope it will be soon...) be well !!

Best Movie Critique : Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End)

Title : Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End)

Director : Gore Verbinski (The Ring, The Weather Man)

Cast :
Johnny Depp (Donnie Brasco, Sleepy Hollow, Finding Neverland)
Orlando Bloom (The Lord Of The Rings, Troy, ElizabethTown)
Keira Knightley (Bend It Like Beckam, Love Actually, Domino)
Geoffrey Rush (Shakespeare In Love, Elizabeth, Quills, Munich)
Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Shaun Of The Dead, The Constant Gardener)

Best Movie Critique Review :

Hi there to my film readers ...

Ok here I am to tell you about Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End) a movie I saw last night and believe I couldn't keep myself from blogging my ideas about the 3rd part of the Pirates.

My opinion about sequels prequels and movies like "Halloween 45..." doesn't change !
I think that every sequel starts producing only for more money and is very little times for asking the answers that came out from the first movie .

Believe me Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End) didn't even came close make me change my mind .
And I can explain you why ! The movie was 183 minutes and all this time didn't decide if it was a drama or a bite of comedy even Jack Sparrow had an obviious problem to adjust to the scenario . A movie with too much discusting scenes that can make a child having nightmares...

In the second part of Pirates of the Caribbean Dead's Man Chest we left Johnny Depp in the stomach of Kracken and the other crue of his ship (Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley...) tryin to find a way to save him .
The Davy Jones (an amazing actor --> Bill Nighy) is not that powerfull anymore cause his hurt is in the wrong hands and the crue trying to find allies so they can travel through the end of the world !

Untill the second part the scenario wasn't that complicated and I can follow it but in the 3rd part
Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End) messed it up...
Even Gore Verbinski (a very talented director) couldn't help in that messand so the movie continues and continues with some nice moments but not even close to the previous scenes of the 1st and the 2nd part!

My conclusion is that even if you really want to see Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End) you have to know that the standars are too low and the movie in my opinion became only for money ...
Try to avoid Pirates of the Caribbean (At World's End) but if you can'tthen try to be patient with the length of it !

Untill my next post have a great day and a great beggining of summer .

Best Movie Critique : Deja Vu

Title : Deja Vu

Director : Tony Scott (Enemy of the State, Spy Game, Domino)

Cast :

Denzel Washigton (The Hurricane, Training Day, The Manchurian Candidate)
Jim Caviezel (The Thin Red Line, The Count of Monte Christo, The Passion of Christ)

Best Movie Critique Review:

Hi there to my film readers...

The big question is not "what if you could change the past?" but if you could change the fate of movies like "Deja Vu"...

If you decide to see that movie I thing that you face the same feeling taht I did .
You'll thing that you've seen that movie again in the past only with different cast !
And taht's teh big problem of "Deja Vu" it combines a little bit of "Minority Report" , a little bit of "Paycheck" and some scenes of "Memento" but all the way to the end never and I meen never finds a way to saw us something different tahn the other versions I've mentione.

It's a pity for Denzel Washigton and Jim Caviezel playing in a movie without any chance or prospect to saw their talent !
But it's all about the money I guess !

Director Tony Scott once again in "Deja Vu" stay focused on the way he follows
from his very first films...
A way with many visual effects and characters with no depth.

"Deja Vu" has his good times but they are not enough to cover the problem ...
The problem that the movie doesn't surpise us at all .

I can't prevent you from seen "Deja Vu" but I can tell you that it would be a waste of time cause from the begging you'll start knowing the end .

That's all for now have a nice day !

Best Movie Critique : The Queen

Title : The Queen

Director : Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, Hero, The Grifters)

Cast :
Hellen Mirren (Gosford Park, Cal, The passion of Ayn Rand)

Michael Sheen (Bright Young Things, Blood Diamonds)

Best Movie Critique Review :

Hi there to my films readers...

First of all I want to admit that I hadn't seen the movie on theater but in my home !
I choose this way so I can turn it down anytime I want to cause I thought "The Queen" would be a boring film ...

I had those thoughts before the movie "The Queen".
First of all it was a British product a
Second it had to do with princess Diana and British kingdom
And last Stephen Frears the director kind of disapoint me in his laast films !

The only reason I needed to see the film was the first academy award for leading role in Helen Mirren .
So I take my chances on this film and start watching it, but in the very first minutes I start thinkin that I made a huge mistake judging the movie before I even start watching it.

"The Queen" is by far one of the best movies of this year with great plot an EXCELLENT Stephen Frears (just like the old times !) and Hellen Miren in her best performance ever !!
It was a movie with no boring parts
with great views of British people and their life
with great historic events in critical parts of the film,
so even if you don't know or listen what happend to Princess Diana you are not gonna find troubles understand the story !

Surely "The Queen" is a movie that I can recomend you with all my hurt.
Even the length is not too long ... !

Best Movie Critique : Perfect Stranger

Title : Perfect Stranger

Director : James Foley (Glengarry Glenn Rose)

Cast : Bruce Willis (Sin City, Bandits, The Sixth Sense)
Halle Berry (X-men, Monster's Ball, Die Another Day)

Best Movie Critique Review :

Hi there to my film readers...

I'm not gonna tell you a lot about this movie , I guess if you already seen "Perfect Stranger" you have the same opinion with me...

"Perfect Stranger" is a completly disaster for both Bruce Willis and Halle Berry !

I can't understand why actors make that choices !
This movie has no scenario it's not even close to a drama or thriller !

I choose "Perfect Stranger" cause I thought I would see a movie just like "Monster's Ball" with a little depth but nothing, from the begging a totally mess the caracters were so lost, the director were so confused with the way he wanna turn the film and I found my self in the middle of the film to thinkin if I made the bigger mmistake this season spendind 1h and 49m with a Perfect Stranger ...

If you haven't seen that movie yet , don't even think to rent it from the dvd store !
It's a waste of money and time...

Untill my next post have great days and avoid bad movies .

Best Movie Critique: The Number 23

Title : The Number 23

Director : Joel Schumacher (Falling Down, Batman Forever, 8mm, Phone Booth)

Cast : Jim Carrey (The mask, Truman Show, Batman Forever, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Miind)

Virginia Madsen (Candyman, The Prophecy, The Rainmaker, Sideways)

Best Movie Critique Review:

Hi there to my film readers !
First of all Happy Easter ...

In the begging of this week critique "The number 23" I have to admit that I never liked Jim Carrey(because his roles and the caracters he rlayed in the past were soooo anoying!), until his movie "Truman Show" in a movie that he shocked me with his patient and the calmness in his roles...
After that 2 more than good movies came with Jim Carrey "The Man on the Moon" and "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" especially in this last film I think he at least needed to be nominated for his role...
But you know Academy ! they select only actors they like and surely Jim Carey is not one of them .
After this little story when "The number 23" made opening in the theaters I was anxious to see how (one of the my favorite directors) Joel Schumacher would help Jim Carrey express such a difficult and strange to his previous roles character.
As you can see from the title "The Number 23" is a movie about a theorie that explains "in a way" that there are people whom all there lifes are strangely close to number 23.

"The number 23" is a movie with good cast but huge problem with the scenario...
I'm sure that many times in the movie you'll say that you've seen that before and you know the ending but before you finish your thoughts the first surprise will come...
But the unexpected surprices doesn't solve the huge holls !

Give "The number 23" a chance but do not expect many new things from that kind of films.

Best Movie Critique: The Number 23

One of the creepiest posters this year, a pretty good horror soundtrack and the movie "The Number 23" in a surprisingly good price !!
