“"Misunderstood humor", dry humor; unlikely though, predicts exactly where life can lead people. (And how distorted, unfair and bizarre can be the paths.)” read more

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"June 3 Never fails. Sensible, sharp and cute as the movie goes. That wonderful obsessed screenplay and those wonderful compulsive actors never fail to entertain. What deteriorates in the story is that belief that Melvin and Carol weren’t really meant for each other after everything that happened. Fun while it lasted kind of thing. If there should be a part 2, Nicholson should end with someone like Diane Keaton or Shirley Knight. Even though, the movie is loaded. It’s as good as it gets over "

"Directed by James L. Brooks Despite the film's persistent reputation as being 'pretentious' (at least I'm assuming that's what everyone's problem is) this movie still remains to me one of my absolute 'favorite movies of all time'. I don't care what anybody else has to say about it, it has helped me a lot and I tend to get a lot out of it even upon repeated viewings. At the of it's release in '97 this film was a HUGE hit with audiences, but somehow down the line people seemed to do nothing but b"

"Katsottu 28.3.2011 TV Yksi 90-luvun menestyneimpiä elokuvia, James L. Brooksin Elämä on ihanaa on malliesimerkki elokuva-akatemiaa kosiskelevasta Oscar-pyrkyristä, jossa kaikki on pliisun laskelmoitua, kultareunuksin ympäröityä ja ruusunlehdin koristeltua. Sokerikuorrutteen alla on tarina kolmesta erilaisesta ihmistyypistä, joiden kohtalot risteävät. Roolistaan Oscar-palkinnon pokannut Jack Nicholson esittää misantrooppista, pakkoneurooseista kärsivää kärtypersekirjailijaa, joka"

Akwaryo posted a review 4 years, 5 months ago

“Really, how to make something original, fresh and odd out of absolutely nothing except a few characters? Using characters, only characters and nothing except characters. That's the simple formula Brooks uses in all of his work, but, for me, he has never created so much charm, warmth and sensibility as he did in `As good as it gets'.

Characters write the screenplay in this movie, and everything that happens - happens because of what they are. They are nothing special – they are ordinary people we meet in the street every day and that have the same problems a lot of other people have. This movie presents the example of how much you can pull out of that. And if that is written as well as it is in this case, not even a happy ending can bother you. Because, in real life, shown here,” read more
