DIRECTED BY Tony Scott


Unintentionally watched this on the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death which was kind of fitting. Fun and kind of weird movie; weird mostly because Scott's direction is more serious than Tarantino's screenplay which makes an odd juxtaposition. Gary Oldman is hilarious.

Just as okay as Raiders of the Lost Ark. Some of it is more embarrassing and annoying, but some of the action scenes have a great energy. Not entirely sure, why people consider this somehow dumber than Raiders. The first encounter with the cult is awesome, but the cult gets tiresome quick.

Probably gonna rewatch all Tarantino films now that I'm reading this biography of him. I still find this kind of lackluster. The script has great ideas, but I don't think the non-chronological approach is the best fit for the film. The flashbacks kind of disrupt the pacing. The Keitel and Madsen ones particularly aren't very interesting, I like the Roth one though. Chris Penn annoys me immensely.

An American weirdo plans to travel to Pakistan to bring Osama bin Laden to justice, a mission he believes to have been given to him by God. A film - incredibly - based on true events, and one that is absolutely worth seeing for Nicolas Cage's mad performance. Would be pretty goddamn annoying, if I wasn't a huge fan of his.

It's cruel, alright. I love how stout and sort of quiet this film is. The experimental music and sound design also work well. Too bad there are too many terribly unnecessary slow motion shots, which are especially disappointing as they are employed during the third act, which should be heart-pumping and satisfying. Now the revenge part is largely boring. Equally unnecessary are the endless genital close-ups during the middle part; they only come across as cheap shock tactics.

A quirky, comedic "ramen western" spiced with some fun food-related vignettes. I actually found these vignettes, with their goofball punchlines, more enjoyable than the actual plot, but it's all good. Makes you hungry, too.

So far, my favorite of the 1930s Hitchcock films I've seen. I think this surpasses many of his later, more acclaimed films, too. An immaculately made, surprisingly dark film; made even more disturbing by modern terrorism.

No niin, onpahan tämäkin "klassikko" nyt kärsitty. Uskomattoman kuivaa paskaa alusta loppuun. Mikään muu kuin musiikki, ajoittain hieno kuvasto ja elokuvan paras hahmo - eriskummallisen näköinen nörtti, joka kantaa kahvitarjotinta noin kahden sekunnin ajan - ei jaksa kiinnostaa. Elokuvan opetus on ilmeisesti se, että Tom Cruisellakin on tunteet.

Perun Maltan haukan yhteydessä esittämäni film noir -kommenttini. Kiss Me Deadly on enemmän sitä, mitä itse haen kyseiseltä genreltä: vinksahtanutta tunnelmaa, pimeyttä, varjoja ja tuomiopäivän ilmapiiriä. Näin tän leffan joitain vuosia sitten ja nukahtelin loppupuolella, mutta elokuva jäi erityisessä, suorastaan lynchmäisessä vinksahtaneisuudessaan kummittelemaan mieleen vuosiksi. Veikkaisinkin, että Lynch on kattonut tän leffan aika tarkkaan: etenkin lopun rantamökki tuo aika vahvat Lost Highway -mielleyhtymät. Gaby Rodgersin näyttely on etenkin aikaansa nähden todella erikoista; harmi, että tää jäi aika lailla hänen ainoaksi elokuvarooliksi.

Conceptually pretty interesting with a lot of symbolism at play but in execution it is too heavy-handed for my liking. "Show, don't tell", you know. He even thinks aloud, for heaven's sake.

I prefer the entertaining first half where Clint is being an all-around dick to everyone.

Ilta sai ansaitsemansa lopun Yön saalistajien myötä. Olen halunnut nähdä elokuvan todella pitkään ja pelkäsin sen pettävän trailerinsa asettamat korkeat odotukset. Pettymys tämä ei todellakaan ollut, mutta kyllä traileri oli elokuvaa tiukemmin leikattu ja käsikirjoitettu paketti. "Ilman minua olisit vain sata kiloa paskaa" -replan kaltaista hersyvää dialogia olisin kaivannut enemmänkin.

Visuaalisesti ainakin Visa Mäkisen leffoihin verrattuna oikein miellyttävä elokuva, jonka alkupuoli on varsin hyvää tunnelmointia. Valitettavasti elokuva lässähtää protagonistiensa typeryyden, antagonistiensa vaarattomuuden ja juone(ttomuute)nsa monotonisuuden takia. Omaperäisyydestä ja hyvästä yrityksestä anteliaat kolme tähteä.

Hullunkurinen professori keksii käytännössä raiskauspillerin, ja tästäkös huumoria irtoaa. Uskomatonta terveyskylpyläsekoilua alusta loppuun. Elokuvan paras hahmo on erittäin lakoninen aviomies, joka saatuaan vihiä vaimonsa pettämisaikeista matkaa hiihtämällä halki erämaiden terveyskylpylään nussimaan vahingossa miestä. Lopussa Muumipapan ääninäyttelijän esittämä professori purjehtii pillerinsä avustamana avioliiton satamaan jostain vitun syystä.

Tiivistettynä voisi sanoa, että elokuva on huono, eikä sitä välttämättä tarvitse toista kertaa katsoa. Kaikkeen sitä rahaa käyttää.

DIRECTED BY Martin Scorsese


Elokuvan parhaita kohtauksia on edelleen ne, joissa Leonardo DiCaprion hahmon pitää vakuuttaa Nicholsonille tahi muille, ettei ole poliisi. Näitä trillerimäisiä hetkiä leffa kaipaisi kenties enemmänkin. The Departed ei herätä suuria tunteita eikä sisällä kovinkaan montaa muistettavaa kohtausta, mutta jotenkin se onnistuu vangitsemaan otteeseensa koko 2,5 tunnin kestonsa ajaksi. Näyttelijöiltä erittäin hyvää kingailua.

Lake Bodom (2016)

Elisa Viihde Aitio, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Taneli Mustonen


Loistelias mieli Luokkakokouksen takaa tarjoaa yhden hämmentävimmistä elokuvakokemuksista miesmuistiin. Bodom onnistuu ihmeen kaupalla päihittämään edeltäjänsä huonoudessaan. Tää alkaa yllättävän hyvin: kuvaus on ihan mukavan näköistä eikä näyttelijöistä edes Mikael Gabriel ärsytä. Dialogikin soljuu paremmin kuin jossain Domen elokuvissa. Meininki on kuitenkin parhaimmillaankin perusgeneeristä nykykauhua.

Juoni alkaa kuitenkin vähitellen muistuttaa progressiiviselta etenemiseltään jotain David Lynchin Inland Empirea: ihan kuin käsikirjoitus olisi laadittu lineaarisesti elokuvan alusta loppuun eikä kirjoittaja olisi koskaan palannut taaksepäin korjailemaan tapahtumien kulkua. Tässä on sen luokan älyttömyyksiin kurottuvia twistejä, että M. Nightkin kääntyisi haudassaan Bodomjärven pohjassa.

Hauskuudessaan tää ei valitettavasti yllä lähellekään Salkkari-elokuvien tasolle: lähinnä tää saa pudistamaan päätään. Hauskinta tässä elokuvassa oli ehkä se, että Tommi Korpela oli ilmeisesti suostunut pelkästään ääninäyttelemään keskellä metsää hilluvaa hinausauton kuljettajaa.

KATOTAANPA TAAS PIKKUSEN VILIMEJÄ.

Uudenvuodenlupauksena voisin pyrkiä kattomaan oman kokoelman leffoja ja sen jälkeen luopumaan niistä, joita ei kiinnosta enää jatkossa katsella. Lisäksi olis ihan kiva katsella enemmän vanhoja ja ei-amerikkalaisia elokuvia. Netflix-huushollissa se on tosin vaikeaa. EDIT: Ei näköjään onnistu.

Kommentoin, jos jaksan, millä kielellä milloinkin. Pääsin viime vuonna aika hyvin yli tästä Listal-elokuvapäivyriahdistuksesta; toivottavasti sama linja jatkuu.

Näinhän se taitaa olla. Toinen vaihtoehto on se, että muutama kalja vie oksennuskuntoon.
