Notes: When I saw the trailer for this movie, it seemed pretty weak but my daughter thought it looked pretty neat so we still ended up watching the damned thing in the movie theater together. Well, eventually, I wasn't positively surprised by this movie, I'm afraid. Seriously, is it me or the concepts delivered by Dreamworks Animation are becoming only more and more pathetic? I mean, there was something pretty neat about this idea of a young boy trying to deal with with the arrival of his new baby brother (After all, Pixar already displayed with 'Inside Out' that you can make a great movie about a kid going through some huge life changing event) but, eventually, everything else was just so lame. I mean, seriously, a baby wearing a suit and talking like Alec Baldwin, trying to stop some complot from a puppy company? That was their brilliant idea?

Notes: When my daughter told me that she wanted to watch this movie, I have to admit that I didn't know at all what she was talking about which is usually not really a good omen. So, I looked it up and, honestly, I thought I looked really lame but we still ended up watching it in the movie theater together. Well, I have to admit it, it was not as awful as I expected it to be. I mean, it was still pretty weak but, at least, it was watchable. Furthermore, the animation, while not being anything groundbreaking, was decent enough and even the 3D effects were not bad at all which was a nice surprise coming from a Belgian-French production like this one. Unfortunately, I still had a hard time to care about the story. I mean, once again, it wasn't the worst story ever but it was still really generic and terribly boring.

Notes: Unfortunately, this movie was pretty much destroyed by the critics when it was released so I lowered down my expectations but I was still eager to check it out. Well, even though it wasn't a complete disaster, it was still seriously weak though. Indeed, the whole thing was just really poorly put together and I'm actually lucky that I read the book a couple of years ago because, otherwise, I'm not sure if I would have been able to follow the damned thing. What I missed the most is that while the story was not necessarily amazing (I actually preferred 'Phantom' from the same author and also involving Harry Hole), at least, in the book, the characters were really interesting but, in this movie, they were just all very poorly developed. I felt sorry above all for Michael Fassbender, easily one of the best actors of his generation, who got stuck playing nothing more than another drunk detective when Harry Hole was supposed to be such an intriguing character. It's a real shame because, with such a solid director and fine cast involved, the movie seemed to be at first a sure winner.

Notes: Since I have never been a fan of the Transformers franchise, I wasn’t expecting from this last instalment, especially since it was the lowest grossing film of this franchise (it still made $600 million worldwide though). Well, the whole thing turned out to be indeed pretty weak and it was easily the weakest instalment in this already seriously underwhelming franchise. In fact, I have to admit that there was some potential about showing that the Transformers have always been there in fact in the past but this idea was just so poorly developed. Basically, the whole thing was some kind of mix of ‘Prometheus’ with ‘Armageddon’ but it never worked. Seriously, it was just a overlong mess and it was in fact so convoluted that at times it barely made sense. Honestly, there was so much going on and, even though I saw it only yesterday, I’m afraid I forgot already half of it. Eventually, the whole thing was just so idiotic but also sometimes rather pretentious but, above all, it was again so boring and even the special effects which used to be quite amazing 10 years ago with the first instalment didn’t really impress me anymore. To conclude, this movie is basically the poster child for major franchise saturation.

Notes: Since I have always been interested in Alexander Payne's work, I was really eager to check this movie, even it had been a big flop at the box-office when it was released. Well, unfortunately, it turned out to be a huge failure. Indeed, even though it was Payne's most ambitious work so far, pretty much nothing worked in this movie, I'm afraid. Basically, it started out as a weird science-fiction satire but it was completely out of focus and constantly jumped from one weak idea to another. I mean, pretty much like the main character who had no clue what to do with himself, as a viewer, you remain clueless about what the hell is going on and what the makers were trying to achieve. Even worse, I actually never cared.

Notes: To be honest, I still don't understand why this franchise is so popular and, except for the fifth installment which was pretty solid, all these movies just seriously bored me and this movie was not an exception, I'm afraid. I mean, sure, I have to admit it, there were some really neat action scenes (my favorite one being when Hobbs and Shaw were getting out of jail) but some of them were rather ridiculous, especially the one involving a whole bunch of remotely controlled cars. Obviously, the whole gimmick this time around was to have Dom joining the bad guys (a gimmick actually already used with Letty in the 6th installment) but it was obvious from the start that he was coerced so it didn't have any impact whatsoever. But, as usual with this franchise, the worst part were the dialogues which were just so tedious and sometimes even rather laughable.

Notes: Eventually, the biggest problem with this movie was the fact that it was such so over-crowded that they really struggled to give everyone something to do. Indeed, with each movie, they keep adding some new characters and, this time around, each character or group of characters got involved with their own very short and really half-baked subplot. As a result, the whole thing felt seriously random, much more than its predecessors. The biggest victim would be, aside Dr. Nefario who would be only displayed for a few seconds for some kind of Star Wars joke, Lucy. Indeed, she was pretty awesome in the previous sequel but, here, she barely had anything to do and, even though it was a good idea of having her struggling with motherhood, it was given so little time so it was rather difficult to take it really seriously. Anyway, I have to admit that the whole thing looked pretty good and some of the jokes were decent and most of the kids will probably love it but, to be honest, I'm pretty much done with this franchise by now.

Notes: Since I heard it was the best installment in this franchise, I thought it might turn out to be a decent watch. Well, eventually, even though I think that my nephew did enjoy the damned thing, I really had a hard time to understand what was supposedly so good about this movie. I mean, sure, the animation was solid (it was nothing amazing though) but I was rather suprised about how boring the story was after all. Before this movie was released, there was some interesting buzz about the fact that it was much darker than its predecessors but, eventually, its so-called darkness turned out to be vastly exaggerrated. I mean, sure, you get to see Lightning McQueen having a massive crash, something that was vastly exploited and displayed everywhere in the posters and in the trailers, but that was about it, everything else in the movie was seriously generic, predictable and rather tedious to behold and there was absolutely nothing dark at all about this tale. In fact, even though 'Cars 2' has a rather lame reputation, I actually enjoyed it slightly more than this borefest.

Notes: The whole thing had some potential, especially with such a strong cast involved but, eventually, I thought it was still rather disappointing. Basically, they went for some kind of mix of 'Gravity' and 'Alien' but, even though it was certainly watchable, it was also completely forgettable. Indeed, I did like the realistic approach they took and I won't blame the cast, they all gave some decent performances. Unfortunately, in the contrary to 'Gravity' in which there was only one character, there was a crew of 6 members here and, while it didn't seem like a lot of people to handle, none of them was developed at all and, as a result, it was rather difficult to really care for them. A bigger problem was that, from the moment that the alien became hostile, it became really predictable and even rather boring. I mean, seriously, ever since 'Alien' came out, how many science-fiction movies have we seen following pretty much the same formula? Well, this movie's biggest failure was that it didn't add anything new to the genre.

Notes: Even though I wasn't really expecting a masterpiece, at least, I hoped this movie would be an improvement on 'Prometheus'. Unfortunately, I turned out to be even more underwhelming and I would go as far as saying that it is the weakest installment in this franchise (of course, without counting the 'Alien vs Predator' crap). Indeed, if one of the biggest issues with 'Prometheus' was probably the fact that it was too ambitious, this time, it was the other way around as Ridley Scott didn't even really try. Seriously, the guy came up with the most generic plot you could think of and pretty much all the new ideas introduced in the previous movie were basically thrown out of the window and the only thing that remained was the fact that David was apparently a really psychotic and megalomaniac robot. The other thing that bothered me was the fact that the crew was actually so boring and uncharismatic. Seriously, was Katherine Waterston really supposed to replace Sigourney Weaver?
