A good movie

This movie was not really a priority for me but since it was soon to be removed from HBO, I thought I might as well check it out. After directing quite a few blockbusters with some various end-results, Jon Favreau decided to go for something smaller this time. Well, it turned out to be a fine watch, in fact, it was easily one of the best movies I have seen about a chef and his restaurant. Indeed, ... read more

Jon Favreau is a pretty good director and actor. The acting is great and the story is intriguing. What's not to like about a cooking film. Throughout the entire film my mouth was salivating or my tummy was rumbling. It just made me very hungry seeing such delicious looking food. This was emotionally uplifting especially after a long, hard, and frustrating day. It's definitely targeted to both peop... read more

"Re-watch - July 23rd I loved Chef when I caught it during its theatrical run, and I still love it. The father-son bonding stuff works like gangbusters and stirs up my emotions, the food makes my mouth water, and the music throughout is well-suited to the scenes it supports. And now that I'm removed from Austin, I also appreciate the chance to visit my previous home vicariously through the film. You can tell this was a passion project for Favreau, and that passion transcends the screen & infects"

A good movie

“This movie was not really a priority for me but since it was soon to be removed from HBO, I thought I might as well check it out. After directing quite a few blockbusters with some various end-results, Jon Favreau decided to go for something smaller this time. Well, it turned out to be a fine watch, in fact, it was easily one of the best movies I have seen about a chef and his restaurant. Indeed, the food was really gorgeous to look at, I don’t think I have ever seen anything like this before (maybe in ‘Yin shi nan nu’ but it was ages ago since I saw it) and the cooking process has never been displayed better than in this movie. I think my favorite moment was actually when he prepared the grilled cheese sandwich for his kid. It had totally nothing to do with the actual story but it l” read more

" Chef is one of those smaller, personal films that I loved on every single level. The characters are great, the story is well-told all around, the music is perfect, and it's got equal amounts of humor and heart. If I wanted to be picky I could call out the ending for being predictable, but it's so well-earned that I'm willing to let that slide. Oh yeah, and a warning to all who want to check this one out...do NOT go into it hungry. Either eat a meal right before you watch it or catch it in a pla"
