Note : Many people won't get this movie and will loathe it. It is definitely the least accessible movie directed by Mallick and I'm not sure I did get half of it but it doesn't matter. I touched me very deeply and many times, I thought I was watching myself when the father was messing up his familly or when the older boy was getting messed up. If you're looking for some deep and meaningfull movie, you should definitely have a look to this one.
Note : First of all, congrats for Rooney Mara. I was really sceptical when I heard which she would portray Lisbeth Salander but her performance was more than convincing. So, even though it is a completely unnecessary remake, even though it is not better than the first version, Lisbeth Salander remains one of the most fascinating characters in a motion picture and the story was still really spellbinding.
Note : Eventually, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed, I thought the whole thing was just hilarious and it has been a while since I laughed so much at the movie theater. Roman Polanski always impressed me in the past but I didn't expect him to make such a funny dark comedy. And the cast was just awesome!
Note : Even though I liked it, I can't say I was blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, I always had a hard time enjoying silent dramas and this one was not an exception. Still, it remains an original and inspiring experiment. The directing was really exquisite and really gave a good feeling about this time period and the performances were really good, especially by Jean Dujardin who was just amazing.
Note : Pretty much like 'The Artist', 'Hugo' or even 'The Tree of Life', it is basically another overhyped movie which didn't really convinced me. I mean, I did like it. The directing was quite awesome and there was a hell of a mesmerizing soundtrack but the story didn't really blow me away. If you ask me, it is all style but no substance whatsoever. It did look great though.
Note : Even though the story was entertaining, it was still nothing really amazing. Still, what remains is a really gorgeous movie and a sweet love letter to the history of motion pictures. In my opinion, it remains a minor effort in Scorsese's career but still a minor Scorsese is always better than all the garbage you can see nowadays.
Note : Honestly, even thought I liked it and I genuinely thought it was good, I still think it is a little bit overrated. However, even if it is not a great flick, it is still a solid Science-Fiction feature with a very interesting concept.
Note : Finally... They managed to get it right! After 3 rather entertaining but still disappointing installments, they eventually manage to make an thoroughly enjoyable flick around this material. Indeed, the story was still really convoluted and most of the time doesn't make much sense, they are plenty of fun stuff to make you forget about it and really enjoy the show.
Note : They chose a more realistic and scientifical approach so there are no shootings, chases, explosions and it was much appreciated. So, the whole thing was interesting and entertaining and I liked it but I can't say it was really mindblowing. Still, I thought it was a decent virus thriller and it is definitely worth a look.
Note : Brad Pitt basically carries the movie on his shoulder and he does it brilliantly. There are so many layers with this character, it was just fascinating to watch. This visionary manager who cannot stand to lose (the reason why he probably didn't make it as a player) is definitely one of the most convincing performance by Mr Pitt. To conclude, it was a very interesting and entertaining sport flick which showed a different side of this world, and, even though I wasn't completely blown away, I really enjoyed it.
