Notes: Basically, it is some kind of homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s work, and even though Hitchcock himself was apparently not impressed, I think it was pretty neat. I especially loved the first act focusing on Angie Dickison and, in my opinion, it was some of the best work delivered by Brian De Palma. Of course, you might argue that it was rather sleazy and exploitative but I thought that it was just spellbinding to behold and Angie Dickinson was quite fascinating. Obviously as a homage to 'Psycho', De Palma got rid off her at the beginning which was a really bold move but, unfortunately, the rest of the movie turned out to be decent enough but not much more than that, I'm afraid. At least, Nancy Allen did play a convincing escort-girl but her character never became really interesting, at least, not as much as Dickinson's character. To make things worse, the first victim's son was even less compelling to behold and the way he joined forces with this escort-girl was just rather preposterous. Anyway, even if the damned thing was not flawless, it was still a really entertaining erotic thriller.

Airplane! (1980)


Notes: In my opinion, one of the interesting things about this movie is that it is a great test to know if you actually enjoy the parody genre. Indeed, even if it might not be the first one, it was and is the best one ever made. So, if you watch this flick and you think it stinks, you can skip directly everything in this genre because nothing else that came after was remotely better than this. For me, this test worked pretty well and I know where I stand now. Indeed, I thought it was pretty good and there were so many good jokes ('a smoking ticket, please!', just awesome...) but that was it, I'm afraid. Indeed, in my opinion, even though it is supposed to be that way, it was still all pretty stupid and stupid humor is not really my thing, I'm afraid. After this, the directing trio (Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker) spent much of their career milking dry this genre and I didn't care much for it. Indeed, 'The Naked Gun' trilogy was actually pretty lame, in my opinion... Anyway, even though I'm not a huge fan of this movie, it is definitely a classic.

Notes: Somehow, it took me many years to watch this classic and, considering its impressive reputation, I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, even though I did enjoy it, I can’t say I was really blown away by the whole thing though. I guess, it is one of those cases that you keep hearing about a classic for many years but when you finally watch it, there is no way it will fulfill all your wild dreams. I mean, it is definitely a fun flick, no doubt about it, but somehow, I never really cared about the characters. It is like John Belushi, a guy who has become a legend since then, when in fact he made only 7 movies before dying and only 2 of them (‘Animal House’ and this movie included) were actually good. Well, I don't think that ‘Animal House’ was really that great either so I don’t really get all the fuss about this guy. Anyway, in my opinion, even though this movie tries to be wild and all, basically, it is pure and simply a musical with some pretty cool music and some rather chaotic scenes but not much more than that, I’m afraid. I don’t know, maybe I was in the wrong mood when I watched it and maybe I should give it another shot at some point. Still, even though it didn’t really blow me away, it is a classic.

Fame (1980)


Notes: I remember it very well, when I was a kid, I used to watch the TV-show based on this movie from time to time. Anyway, even though it was a decent watch, it never became a favorite of mine and it took me more than a decade to finally watch this movie. Eventually, it is my wife who pointed out that I should definitely check it out and the fact that it was directed by Alan Parker made the whole thing even more intriguing to me. Anyway, even though it was nothing really groundbreaking, I thought that most of it worked actually pretty well. Furthermore, you have to keep in mind that this movie was made a couple of decades before all those dance movies such as the ‘Step Up’ franchise and it has pretty much become the blue-print for this genre. Eventually, almost 30 years, they would come up with a remake, I haven’t seen it yet, but it seems, like for most of those modern remakes, that it was rather misguided and it turned out to be a major critical and commercial flop.
johanlefourbe's rating:


Notes: It is usually considered as the best installment of this whole saga and, after re-watching the damned thing once again, I believe it really deserves this status. Indeed, even though it still remains a seminal piece of popcorn entertainment, this time, it was quite darker than its predecessor and towards the end, it almost became some kind of Greek tragedy. Indeed, the climax with the duel between Skywalker and Vader has become pretty much the stuff of legends, it is still thrilling after all these years and I would be really surprised if they would ever manage to top that in the upcoming sequels (obviously, they didn't). Sure, 40 years later, it might seem pretty cheesy to discover the truth about Luke's father but it is because it has been copied and parodied so many times afterwards and, in fact, it was terribly effective. The good stuff didn’t stop there though. Indeed, you also had the enigmatic Boba Fett whose backstory would be really messed up in the prequels and, of course, the all mighty Yoda who would become one of the most beloved characters in this franchise.

Notes: It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Honestly, I always found it rather difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, back in those days, the best movie released at that time was obviously ‘Raging Bull’ so the fact that this movie eventually won the Best Picture Academy Award was always quite controversial. And, yet, I still think it is actually a really good drama though. Indeed, for various reasons, I always thought that psychology is a rather fascinating subject but not only you don’t get many movies dealing with this topic but most of them give a rather unrealistic and colorful image of such patients (see for example ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest’ or ‘Girl, Interrupted’). Well, this movie gave one of the most convincing and compelling depictions of depression that I have ever seen. Indeed, the directing was solid without being too flashy and there was a really good cast. At the time, it launched the career of Timothy Hutton who became one of the youngest winners of an Academy Award ever but this guy never really fulfilled those great expectations.

Notes: From the 3 big horror movies that launched some major franchises in the 80’s (‘Halloween’, ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’, ‘Friday the 13th’), my favorite one has always been this movie. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I saw it almost 20 years ago, way before the rest and that I'm being nostalgic and all. I believe that, after I-don't-how-many sequels, people simply forgot that the first one was actually a pretty good movie. Indeed, the first time I watched it, I remember it as if it was yesterday, a friend of mine suggested to see it, and, to be honest, I thought it would be some serious crap. Boy, I was wrong, that’s for sure. Indeed, eventually, it turned out to be really entertaining and pretty scary. On top of that, I usually hate it when they give such a twist at the end but this one was actually really good and it really worked very well. Eventually, it did try to watch the 2nd installment but I was so disappointed by this sequel that my original interest in this franchise completely vanished and I would never ever watch another installment, except for ‘Freddy vs Jason’ the crossover with Freddy Krueger which I saw many years later (and it was pretty crappy as well).

Je vous aime (1980)


Notes: Basically, it is once again one of those really obscure French movies which I was the 1st one to have seen here on Listal so it might be one of the most obscure movies I have ever seen. I was above all attracted by the interesting cast but, to my surprise, I really loved this flick. It was directed by Claude Berri, a very well known director in France but never one of my favorites and, in my opinion, it is by far the best movie he has made, at least, among the ones I have seen. There was also a very good cast (Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Gérard Depardieu, Serge Gainsbourg, Alain Souchon) and they all delivered some really solid performances. Anyway, the thing that most intrigued me was the story. Indeed, basically, it is a love story about one woman and the 4 men who were her lover at different times in her life. So, it was very dysfunctional and therefore very French but, somehow, I thought it was just fascinating and I thought it was just pretty awesome.

The Shining (1980)


Notes: Well, pretty much like anything else coming from Stanley Kubrick, it is basically another huge classic but, to be honest, it doesn't really belong to my favorites. But even so, it is seriously entertaining, I think it is probably the most accessible movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and, once again, the directing was just amazing. On top of that, Jack Nicholson gave one of his best performances and the whole thing was quite spellbinding to watch. And, yet, somehow, it was still missing something to become truly amazing, at least, that’s my opinion. Eventually, the main issue was probably the fact that this movie is and remains a Stephen King story and, to be honest, I have never been a real fan of his work. Still, I have always been amazed by how Kubrick has managed to lift up this material to such heights and among all these Stephen King books that has been adapted to the silver screen, it is easily one of the very best ones, even if King himself didn't like it at all.

Notes: I have to admit it, it has been a while since I saw this one but I will definitely re-watch it as soon I get the opportunity. When talking about Lynch's career, it seems that this movie has been a little bit forgotten. Indeed, if you compare it to the movies more faithful to his directing style such as 'Blue Velvet' or 'Mulholland Dr.', it seems to be like a rather straightforward drama. Indeed, it is rather straightforward but still quite fascinating to watch in my opinion and after directing only 2 movies, David Lynch was already regarded as one of the most promising American directors at work. The best thing in this movie was that even though the story was rather predictable, Lynch preserved his own rather dark directing style and it made the whole thing quite sinister but so spellbinding to watch. Another thing that I appreciated is that, for once, he allowed us to get acquainted with the characters, to get to know them and eventually to care about them. Eventually, even if it might be a really atypical Lynch feature, it is actually pretty awesome.

Notes: It has been a while since I have seen this movie and I would really like to watch it again at some point. In fact, I do have a DVD of this movie but it’s only dubbed in Dutch and I would rather re-watch it in the original French language. Anyway, it’s a movie I watched so many times as a kid and, back then, I thought it was just spellbinding to behold but it’s a movie that I can be appreciated by children and grown-ups alike. It was made when there was still no CGI animation and I do believe it’s a shame that the hand-drawn animation has been dropped by most studios because such movies were also quite gorgeous to look at. On top of that, in this case, there was also some humour and adventure and it was probably the most poetic animated feature I have seen so far. It’s such a pity that Paul Grimault never managed to release another full length feature afterwards because I do believe that the guy was probably one of the best animation directors that ever lived.

Raging Bull (1980)


Notes: When I was younger, 'Goodfellas' was definitely my favorite Scorsese feature but, nowadays, it is a toss up between this flick and 'Taxi Driver' and it is easily one of the best movies produced by De Niro and Scorsese. Basically, it is a really spellbinding story and easily the best movie dealing with an athlete. I mean, even though 'Ordinary People' was a very good flick, this masterpiece was just from another level and should have won the best picture academy award back in those days. In my opinion, if there is a time when Scoresese should have won the big prize, it was at that moment and not with 'The Departed' which was the only way the Academy could possibly apologize to this great master. Anyway, this movie is the stuff of legends. Indeed, In 1978, when Martin Scorsese was at an all-time low resulting from an addiction to cocaine, Robert De Niro visited him and told him that he had to clean himself up and make this movie. Thanks to De Niro, Scorsese was back in the game and directed one of the best movies ever made and continued to make incredible movies for the next 4 decades. Of course, we shouldn't forget De Niro who gave one of the best performances which has been a reference for many actors afterwards.

Notes: To be honest, I had a rather hard time to get into the whole thing. I mean, the first 10 minutes were almost impossible to follow and then the rest of the movie was still rather hard to decipher. I mean, even the characters had no clue about what was going on and it started to grow thin after a while. Of course, in the last 10-20 minutes, you finally find out what was going on and, in retrospective, it was actually rather obvious. So, in my opinion, even though the plot was entertaining, it wasn’t really amazing though. Still, it doesn’t mean it was a bad movie, far from it. Indeed, the directing was solid, the music was not bad (which is quite remarkable since you are dealing with a 80’s feature) and, of course, Bob Hoskins was downright impressive. Indeed, the little guy delivered one hell of a kinetic performance and it would give him his breakthrough. Helen Mirren was also pretty good but, even though she did fight to expand her character, I though her character was still rather limited. Anyway, even if I don’t think it was great, it was still a really good flick.

Body Heat (1981)


Notes: Back in the 80’s, not only Lawrence Kasdan had some major success as a screenwriter (he wrote ’The Empire Strikes back’ , ’Return of the Jedi’ and ’Raiders of the Lost Ark’ , not too shabby, ain’t it?), he developed also a solid career as a director and all his movies were acclaimed. However, in the 90’s, his directing efforts were not that impressive and, in my opinion, it all started to go wrong with ‘I Love You to Death’ which was pretty lame. Anyway, his directing debut was a definitely critical and financial success. Indeed, it is a pretty solid néo-noir, almost a remake of ‘Double Indemnity’ and not only did it launch Kasdan’s directing career but also William Hurt and Kathleen Turner (this movie was also her acting debut). So, it was a pretty steamy affair and, personally, I really enjoyed the mood provided by the competent directing. Hurt and Turner were really good as well, they had some great chemistry and after this movie, they would both become some major players in Hollywood in the 80’s. Unfortunately, I was still not completely blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, like in most of the néo-noir features I am familiar with, the plot was pretty pedestrian and all the characters were really stereotypical. I know, it is something inherent to the genre but I always find it rather frustrating. Anyway, even if I don’t think it is really a masterpiece, it is still a really solid erotic thriller.

Excalibur (1981)


Notes: I have always had a weak spot for John Boorman's work and I wanted to watch this flick for many years. Furthermore, it had built up a decent cult following since its release so my expectations were pretty high up. However, I can't say that the whole thing was mind-blowing though. I mean, I did like this movie but there were many things that also bothered me. For example, the beginning really looked cheesy but it got better after a while, even though I don't agree with Roger Ebert who thought that it was visually amazing (he did write his review 40 years ago so, maybe back then, it was a milestone in this area). And it was the same thing about the cast. Indeed, the cast was pretty impressive (Helen Mirren, Gabriel Byrne, Gabriel Byrne, Patrick Stewart, Ciarán Hinds) but, even though they were usually pretty good, the dialogues were sometimes downright cheesy but, on the other hand, we have no way to know how they talked back in those days. Still, I enjoyed this movie and it is definitely the best version of the Arthurian Tales I have seen so far. Indeed, we are pretty far from Disney here, since the whole thing is drenched in violence, blood, lust and you even have some incest. Basically, the mood and general approach was really dark and gloomy but it was a great way to handle this material.

Scanners (1981)


Notes: Basically, it is one of those old-fashioned horror movies that David Cronenberg used to make before he became more mainstream. At the end of the day, you either dig those movies or you don’t but I thought it was pretty good. Indeed, the special effects were quite awesome and gruesome and I really enjoyed the nightmarish atmosphere created by Cronenberg. It is something typical from this director and I always found it quite fascinating. To be honest, I was actually expecting something more from the plot though but it was still entertaining enough. Apparently, it figures since the production was rushed, starting without a finished script so it could explain why the story was not completely satisfying. Apparently, the whole experience was not really pleasant for David Cronenberg and he had to finish the movie in two months, writing and shooting at the same time. Still, this movie was a modest success and it even spawned a few sequels which I haven’t seen.

Notes: There was a time when John Carpenter was rolling one classic after another and, with this in mind, I was really eager to check this flick. Honestly, I was expecting a lot from this flick as it looked really awesome and even apparently, Kurt Russell himself has stated that this is his favorite of all his films and Snake Plissken is his favorite of his characters. Eventually, I thought it was indeed pretty entertaining with a nice vibe and, indeed, Kurt Russell was really badass. Furthermore, even though the budget ($7 million) was the largest that John Carpenter had received so far, it still had a B feature quality like most of his work and maybe that’s why I didn’t really love it. I mean, I thought it was pretty cool and fairly entertaining but, somehow, the story was not really amazing in my opinion and it could have been better. Anyway, even if I don’t think it is really a masterpiece (a year later, John Carpenter and Kurt Russell would release together the superior ‘The Thing’), it is still a fun feature.

Notes: We don't hear much from John Landis nowadays but, back in the 80's, he was quite a successful director and one of his biggest success was this werewolf flick which has now reached a cult status. First of all, to mix comedy and horror is a tricky challenge and most movies usually fail miserably but Landis did a good job here and sometimes you might wonder if you should be laughing or be horrified by the whole thing. Still, I must say, like most of the movies in this genre, it did take forever until the main character finally became a werewolf. However, I have to admit that the end result was really impressive though. Indeed, back in those days, they didn't have any CGI but only some awesome make-up and it still stands up fine 40 years later. Unfortunately, it was also an issue with this flick. Indeed, basically, the make-up was so impressive that it did upstage the whole story as a result. Furthermore, considering the story itself, sure, it was entertaining enough but, to be honest, it was nothing really amazing. On top of that, it was rather silly that the doctor would run her own investigation and, even though Jenny Agutter was really lovely, I thought it was hardly believable that a nurse would bring home a patient to have some hot sex with him. Anyway, even if I think it is in fact slighly overrated, it is still a classic though.

Blow Out (1981)


Notes: Nowadays, Brian de Palma is pretty much forgotten but back in the 70's and the 80's, he was a major movie director. Anyway, I always had a weak spot for this director and, in my opinion, this movie is easily one of his best. Apparently, Quentin Tarantino even said that this film is his favorite Brian De Palma movie and Tarantino cast John Travolta in ‘Pulp Fiction’ because he liked his performance in this movie so much. Basically, it is a typical de Palma thriller, the style where he had the best results and it was obviously also an homage to 'Blowup', the great flick directed by Antonioni. However, even though the plot follows the same structure, the directing style was quite different. As a result, I thought that the mood was just great and the story was quite spellbinding. Back in those days, Travolta, before disappearing into oblivion in a few years later, delivered here a solid performance. Of course, since you are dealing with an American thriller, at the end, you had some rather preposterous twist(s) and action scenes but, for once, it didn’t bother me much.

Notes: I don't know abroad, but in France, it is a classic and it was a huge success back then when it was released. Anyway, it is such a bold and inspiring picture, I thought it was pretty amazing. Of course, there is no way to know how accurate the whole thing is but I thought it was very believable. Also, they didn't make any concession such as making the characters talk French or English, there wasn't even any subtitles but I thought it made the whole thing even more spellbinding to watch. The scene which personally really blew me away was the one when the guy sees how to make fire. The look on his face, the impact of this event, it was just amazing. In those few minutes, they managed to give the very essence of being human (the consciousness, the thinking process). Just amazing. Of course, the whole thing is not completely flawless. For example, to add something to the thin story, they had to throw in a romantic plot which was nicely handled but it was not as believable as the rest. Furthermore, the main character made too many huge jumps into evolution in just a couple of days. Still, the damned thing is just unique and pretty much a must-see in my opinion.

Notes: Since I'm a huge fan of Indiana Jones, of course, I just love this flick. Even though it is not my favorite one in this franchise (that would be the 3rd installment), it is still quite awesome. Indeed, when I was a kid, I saw it so many times with my father but after so many years later, I keep watching it from time to time and it is still so damned entertaining. Basically, with this movie, Steven Spielberg set up the golden rules for this mighty franchise and he introduced to us one of the greatest most iconic characters in motion picture history. Indeed, even though Harrison Ford was not even their first choice, he completely nailed this part and managed to create a character who was even more awesome than Han Solo which was quite an achievement. By the way, the big difference with this movie and 'Star Wars' is that, when I watch again nowadays this other classic, I find it slightly childish while it is not the case at all with this great flick. Anyway, not only it is technically pretty much flawless, it is also just such a fun movie and it is completely entertaining from the very first minute until the very last seconds.

Mephisto (1981)


Notes: It is nowadays a rather forgotten movie but I thought it was actually fascinating. In my opinion, it is one of the darkest dramas ever made about WWII I have ever seen and I thought that there was a really impressive amount of depth put in the characters, especially the main one who was quite fascinating. Indeed, the directing was very well done and, above all, Klaus Maria Brandauer gave probably the best performance of his career. Since then I have seen some other movies starring this guy but none of them really impressed me like this one. Anyway, he was really mesmerizing here, giving life to a fascinating but also flawed character. On top of that, this movie was also a very interesting meditation about Art and while watching this you might wonder, when you are dealing with Art in general, where does it start and where does it end and how far should you go in order to reach your artistic goals?

Christiane F. (1981)


Notes: To be honest, while watching this movie again, I was actually surprised by how weak the acting actually was, especially during the beginning, but it might be explained by the fact that the actors were all very young and had never acted before. Even so, it was still a powerful and shattering movie. Indeed, even though it might not be the most hardcore movie concerning drugs, it is definitely near the top. Basically, there was absolutely no joy, no happiness whatsoever in this movie, just total despair and that’s something they really got right with this movie, it was how dark and gloomy the whole thing was. Actually, this movie should be some compulsory viewing for all teenagers and, if after watching the damned thing, they still want to try heroin, then they would need some serious help. That's probably the most heartbreaking thing about this movie, the fact that it involves such young kids and the fact that they picked up such young actors instead of some grown-ups made it even more crushing to behold.

Notes: Eric Rohmer (who passed away just a few years ago) was always considered a major director in France but probably also abroad. To be honest, I don’t think I’m really an expert in his work but I have still managed to watch a some of his movies. Anyway, this flick might be my favorite so far. Indeed, basically, it was a rather typical romantic tale, almost a soap opera, but the characters were very well written and actually quite fascinating to behold. It was also a rather typical French feature during which nothing much actually took place and the whole thing was about some couples talking a lot about themselves, their relationships and life in general. You either love or hate the genre but I always had a weak spot for it and this flick was one of the best I have seen. I also enjoyed a lot the understated directing style by Rhomer who gave a lot of room to the actors to give life to their characters and the absence of additional background music was a nice touch as you had then to make up your mind on your own about what you should feel or think.

Thief (1981)


Notes: Eventually, even though it is one of Michael Mann's more obscure movies, I was actually impressed by the damned thing and, in my opinion, it is easily one of his best directing efforts. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for heist features and this flick is, by far, one of the best I have ever seen in this genre. Indeed, right from the start, you get an amazing opening scene during which you have one of the most realistic heist I have ever seen in a movie. Apparently, the burglary tools used throughout the film were not props, but actual tools which were supplied by actual thieves who served as technical consultants on the film. Therefore, the whole thing felt really raw and pretty realistic and it was just spellbinding to watch. On top of that, James Caan was really on the top of his game and he gave easily one of the best performances of his career (apparently, Caan shares this opinion and after ‘The Godfather’, it is his favorite film he has made). Eventually, even though the story was actually rather pedestrian, it is so well made, so well directed and I really loved the damned thing.

Das Boot (1981)


Notes: Eventually, I thought it was quite amazing and it was much better than anything directed before or after by Wolfgang Petersen. Anyhow, I always thought that there was something fascinating about movies dealing with submarines and this one is by far the best one. Indeed, since then, it has been imitated numerous times but this feature remains the reference in its genre and I will remain so a for a long time. Basically, the directing was amazing and, like I said before, you could argue that Wolfgang Petersen never reached these heights again in his career. In my opinion, the mood was intense, there was a completely nail-biting tension and I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the last seconds. At the end of the day, it is not only a great submarine movie, it is basically one of the best war features ever made.

The Thing (1982)


Notes: This movie started out with a very typical ominous score which, for once, was not written by John Carpenter but by the great Ennio Morricone. From there, it became a chilling horror flick with some rather gruesome special effects. Even though it was actually never really scary, there were still loads of tension since you never knew for sure, except for MacReady, who could be infected or not. I also appreciated the downbeat ending with no survivors, even the last 2 guys were left alone in the snow to die without a rescue team. I was rather amazed to read that this movie was a flop and was critically panned when it was released. Anyway, nowadays, it is rightfully considered by many as the best movie directed by John Carpenter and it is another great example that you can take an old movie, give it a fresh look and modify the story to fit our modern world with some tremendous results.

Notes: First of all, I have to point out that I’m a huge fan of Pink Floyd, it is easily one of my favorite bands, and The Wall was one of their best albums so, obviously, I always had a weak spot for this movie. On the other hand, I have to admit that, if you are not into their music, there is a fair chance that this flick will be rather boring for you. Indeed, if you take the scenes one by one, there was some strong stuff. I think my favorite parts about the young boy growing up without his father and the animated scenes were also pretty neat. Unfortunately to be honest, the way the scenes were all put together, it was quite a mess, I’m afraid. At best, it could be seen as a very long video clip or as some kind of dark feverish dream. It is interesting to note that, even though this movie has become a major cult-classic especially among the fans of Pink Floyd, all the members of Pink Floyd and Alan Parker all thought that this movie was actually rather disappointing. Anyway, even though it might not be a masterpiece, I still think it is worth a look and if you are fan of Pink Floyd like me, it is pretty much a must-see.

Notes: Since it is a huge classic, I was really eager to check this flick and I had some really high expectations before watching it. Eventually, even though I did enjoy it, it was not good as I expected it to be. I mean, it is a decent flick, entertaining and funny but I didn't see anything great about it and I was definitely not blown away by the whole thing. Still, it was quite awesome to see Sean Penn at the beginning of his career playing a stoner but, thank god, he managed to escape typecasting. It was also fun to see a whole bunch of actors at the beginning of their career (Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Vincent Schiavelli, Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, James Russo, Nicolas Cage, Anthony Edwards). I guess, it is basically a matter of taste, and if you are into this kind of comedies, you will probably love it but otherwise, you won't see what was so awesome about it (for example, Roger Ebert really despised it). Anyway, I don't think it is a masterpiece but it is still a pretty good movie.

Notes: Even though I grew up watching many movies, this flick was not one of those that I saw thousand times like many other people from my generation. I mean, I did see it back then when I was very young and even though I thought it was pretty neat, it didn't really blow me away like some other movies I saw back then. Eventually, I saw it again not so long ago and it remains a pretty good flick, no more no less. In my opinion, it is a rather typical Spielberg picture, with its positive and negative aspects. The positive aspects are that it was very well done with some great shots and special effects and even though it is now almost 40 years old, it is still entertaining from the beginning to the end. Some of those scenes or the score have become just really iconic. On the other hand, the negative aspect is that it tends to be overly sentimental in my opinion, it is a very moral tale and it has a rather black and white psychology about the good guys and the bad guys. To be honest, I actually think it is more enjoyable if you watch it very young, between 8 and 13 years old, then it is definitely a great watch.

Notes: I watched again this movie recently and I was surprised by how little I actually remembered this movie which wasn’t really a good sign. It’s interesting that the only thing I did remember was when Alexander, Fanny and their mother went to live with Edvard Vergerus but, somehow, I think it does make sense. Indeed, even if Vergerus was pretty much a dreadful guy, he was however the only fully developed character in this whole story and, therefore, the only one who made an impression on me. For example, at some point. Emilie made the decision to marry with Edvard but they never gave us any explanation why and, then, 5 mins later, she was complaining about her marriage and wanted out. As a result, it was rather difficult to root for her but it’s something that could be said about all the characters in this movie. Indeed, you spend more than 3 hours with them but you don’t really get to know any of them. At least, even he still remained an enigma, I was more able to appreciate the mysterious scenes involving Alexander who was an intriguing young boy. However, I still don’t get why his sister was mentioned in the title since she did so very little and had so little impact on everything happening around her. Anyway, this movie is obviously considered as a massive masterpiece, and, I guess, as far I’m concerned, it belongs to the category 'misunderstood masterpiece’. What I mean by that is that I was able to see all the craft behind it, I could see it was obviously a work of Art but I'm afraid I didn't really get it. Basically, there was a lot of symbolism that went just way over my head. I mean, during the whole thing I was scratching my head thinking 'What did he mean with all this?' and, honestly, at the end of the movie, I didn't get many answers. Still, such a challenging movie should always be praised when you see how simplistic and moronic are the movies produced by Hollywood and I will not a blame a movie because I just didn't get it.

Notes: Well, even though it is a visually rather ugly movie, the material turned out to be however really unique and quite fascinating to behold. Indeed, I think it was the most feminist movie I have ever seen and it was clearly made by a woman, about women, for the women. Of course, you might argue that what happened in this movie was rather far-fetched but, what was more interesting, was the underlying message. Basically, it boils down to that, in this man dominated world, women have always been, oppressed might too strong, but at least undermined, undervalued, vastly misunderstood and definitely not treated as equal. The downside of this approach was that, while all the women were quite complex and interesting to behold, the male characters were on the other hand barely developed whatsoever and were reduced to pretty much some clueless sexist morons. On top of that, I was not really sure about the beehive behaviour displayed by all these women. Indeed, to be honest, I have some doubts that the female community is so harmonious and that they have such a great understanding of each other with some seemingly telepathic powers. Finally, we are obviously supposed to be rooting for these 3 women but imagine if 3 men would kill a woman so randomly and so violently? I’m pretty sure that they would be considered as ‘monsters’. On the other hand, you might argue that white straight men will probably never have a reason to lose their sh*t like that. Anyway, it has been a while since I have seen something so original and so thought-provoking.

Notes: Eventually, I really did like this movie a lot but, somehow, it didn’t really blew me away though. First of all, on a technical level, it was indeed a really impressive feature. Indeed, those puppets and the sets just looked great and I really enjoyed the creatures, the characters and, basically, the whole fantasy world they managed to create which was just fascinating. Frankly, I had never seen something like this before, a Fantasy Adventure only with some puppets, and the makers should be credited for trying to create something so original. On the downside, since you are dealing only with some puppets here, the whole thing tended to be really static and the action scenes were not really successful. Basically, half of the movie, you have the puppets talking to each other without doing much else which is quite understandable since you can’t constantly move them but then, in this case, you wonder if this medium was just not too much limited to tell a story on this scale. Still, in spite of these flaws, if only to see this amazing world, it is definitely worth a look.

Missing (1982)


Notes: Nowadays, we don’t hear much about him but there was a time when Costa-Gavras was one of the most highly regarded directors in the world. Personally, there was a time when I was quite a fan of his politically charged thrillers and it is with a great pleasure that I finally managed to watch ‘Z’ which is pretty much his magnum-opus and is even considered by many as one of the finest movies ever made. More than a decade after ‘Z’ and many other acclaimed features, Costa-Gavras finally got the opportunity to work in the USA and it was once again another spellbinding political thriller which even managed to won the prestigious Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival. Back then when it was released, it was pretty controversial since it was dealing with the Chilean coup of 1973 which was backed by the US government. I mean, sure, the whole structure was rather straightforward and this feature didn’t reach the heights of ‘Z’ but I though it was still a really solid, entertaining and very interesting movie.

Notes: First of all, it was definitely one of the coolest titles I have came across. Eventually, the first thing I enjoyed about this movie is that it was dealing with a part of history that I didn’t know at all. Furthermore, the story was fairly realistic and quite spellbinding to watch. On top of that, Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver both delivered some solid performances and they had some great chemistry together. However, even though I thought it was really a good flick, there was still something that actually really bothered me. Indeed, I thought it was really confusing that Linda Hunt was playing a man. Why they didn’t change this character to be a woman or why didn’t they hire a man to play this part is seriously beyond me. Basically, back then , Linda Hunt was completely unknown so it didn’t really bother anyone at the time but, seriously, it must be the most confusing casting choice I have ever seen. But, fortunately, a part from that, it was a fine movie.

The Road (1982)


Notes: I think it was the first Turkish movie I have ever seen and only therefore it was a really interesting watch. The other thing that impressed me was how much Turkey must have changed in the last 40 years (on the other hand, I have never been there so I might be completely mistaken). Concerning the movie itself, it was actually quite strong and I don't think it has lost much of its impact after all these years. In my opinion, this movie was about the fact that the Turkish people was and maybe still are too much focused on punishment and vengeance when they should try to be more compassionate and forgiving towards other people and it's an universal message that is still topical nowadays for everyone. Concerning the fact that they chose to tell the stories of 5 different inmates, to be honest, I'm not so sure if it was such a great idea. Sure, on one hand, they were then able to be more diverse and show more ways to handle such a situation but, on the other hand, if they would have gone for just one or two characters, they could have expanded their tales and go much deeper. It is still a really strong movie though.

Notes: Since it is one of the most highly regarded movies starring Meryl Streep (she even got an academy award for her performance), and I was really eager to watch this flick so I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, I had some rather mixed feelings about the whole thing. Indeed, I really had a hard time caring about the whole thing. Still, Meryl Streep was indeed really terrific and if only for her performance, you should definitely check this movie. On the other hand, I thought that Kevin Kline was rather annoying and, honestly, not really convincing. I know, he plays someone with some psychological issues but I thought he was way too hysterical and he got on my nerves pretty bad. Furthermore, I was wondering where the story was going during the whole thing until the shattering ending. Indeed, the way they ended it was completely heartbreaking but also very powerful. So, I went from being indifferent to being quite fascinated. Eventually, I guess I should re-watch it to make up my mind for good.

Blade Runner (1982)


Notes: It is definitely my favorite Science Fiction flick and even one of my favorite movies of all time. Furthermore, by now, I have seen all the movies directed by Ridley Scott and it is easily his best one. Basically, the look and the mood were great, the story was just plain fascinating and the cast was also pretty awesome. Back then, Harrison Ford was in the zone, and everything he touched turned into gold and it is hard to believe that, when this movie was released, it was actually a flop. You could blame the marketing but I'd rather believe that it was just way ahead of its time and nowadays it has reached a huge cult status which is totally deserved in my opinon. I guess it is/was maybe too slow for some viewers but it didn't bother me, in the contrary. Eventually, after 35 years, they will finally come up with a sequel and even though you might wonder if this movie really needed a sequel, since it was directed by Denis Villeneuve, one of the best directors at work nowadays, it was still a smashing critical success (and still another box-office flop). Anyway, coming back to our main feature, even if you don't like it, you would have to at least recognize the fact that it has influenced all the SF movies that came afterwards.

Notes: Obviously, it has become since then a major cult-classic but, to be honest, even though I did like it, I have never been a really huge fan, even after rewatching the damned thing recently. I mean, sure, I have to admit it, it is definitely a fun horror-comedy, no doubt about it, but, at the end of the day, I think it was above all a cheap flick that Sam Raimi made at the time to start up his career. Eventually, after all these years, if you look back at his legacy, it still is pretty much his most acclaimed directing effort which is, at the same time, pretty neat but also pretty sad, when you think about it. Since then, they have recently released a remake which was approved by Sam Raimi and since it was fairly well received, I was really eager to check it out but, eventually, I was amazed by how underwhelming this remake turned out to be after all. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, I have to admit it, after more then 30 years after its release, it still holds up pretty well and it is still really entertaining.

Notes: To be honest, I wonder how I actually ended up watching this movie but I think it was because the critic in the TV mag was pretty good. Anyway, even though I didn’t really expect it, it turned out to be a major milestone in my movie watching. Indeed, back then, I was much younger, I had never seen anything like this before and I was seriously blown away by the whole thing. I think that the first thing that impressed me with this movie was its visual aspect. Basically, it deals with art and painting and it is probably the movie which made the best connection with the painting art I have ever seen. Furthermore, there was also a mesmerizing surrealist vibe with this movie and even though the plot and the characters were rather murky, it was one of the most spellbinding movies I have ever seen. Concerning Peter Greenaway, it was his breakthrough feature film, it would be also his first movie I managed to watch and I became right away a big fan of his work.

Notes: When is the last time you saw a good movie starring Robert De Niro? I keep watching most of his new movies but most of it is just crap and after all this disappointment, it was time to rewatch a good old flick to redeem the guy. Among all the masterpieces De Niro and Scorsese made together, it is one of the least appreciated ones and it was a flop when it came out which is not really surprising. Indeed, it is a comedy but the whole thing is just so dark, so sardonic, it can't be compared to your average commercial comedic feature. That's probably why I enjoyed it whereas I usually don't care much about comedies. Once again, the directing was really strong with here and there some pacing issues but nothing major and some amazing performances. It is also gives a grim and, I'm afraid, realistic view on the whole fandom/stalker concept. The great thing about this movie is that you never know if you should laugh or be afraid by the whole thing which is probably why the average audience dimissed it and it is exactly why I actually enjoyed it so much. Still, I'm not so sure about the ending. On one hand, it is really fascinating and provides a great twist to the whole thing, blaming Langford, the audience, everybody and shows how ridiculous the whole system is. On the other hand, where they make sure during the whole thing that Pupkin is displayed as a maniacal incapable moron, suddenly, with this ending, he became some kind of genius and a great comedian. Still, it is another great movie by the great duo Scorsese/De Niro.

Notes: By now, I have seen all the movies involving the Monty Python and while I was wildly enthousiast at first, I must admit it that I was a little bit disappointed. I mean, I more or less enjoyed all their movies but I didn’t find them really excellent and I came to the conclusion that their humor is not really my cup of tea. For example, I had some big expectations for this flick but, to be honest, I thought it was a little bit disappointing. I know this is a huge classic but I didn't think it was that great. Don't misunderstand me! I enjoyed it and I though it was pretty good but it was not a masterpiece in my opinion. I mean, the concept sounded awesome on paper but it was just too random. Indeed, for me, it is was too anarchic and incoherent and the whole thing was just a collection of sketches. Sure, there were many funny moments but I preferred the struture that they used for 'The Life of Brian' which had more or less a plot. In spite of all this, after all, it is still a very funny and entertaining flick though.

Notes: Even though Eddie Murphy does have a rather lousy reputation, when he did get some solid material, the guy was just hilarious and this movie was a fine example. Dan Aykroyd was pretty good as well. Furthermore, I really enjoyed how they handled the stock-exchange making it all look like ruthless, worthless and also quite ridiculous. Still, even though I definitely enjoyed it, it was still not really mindblowing in my opinion. I mean, of course it was quite funny but, eventually, it still remained rather harmless and innocent. For example, when Dan Aykroyd ends up on the street, within the very first minutes, somehow, he managed to be helped by some good-hearted hooker. I mean, come on, was it really realistic? Not really. Maybe they should have pushed it even further in the cynical dark humor. Furthermore, the whole 3rd act when they finally get together to get even with the Dukes was rather disappointing. In my opinion, it was a rather sappy and uninteresting happy ending. Anyway, it is honestly nothing really great but it is still a funny and entertaining comedy.

The Hunger (1983)


Notes: It is a really intriguing flick and for many reasons. First of all, it was Tony Scott’s directing debut and the weirdest and most interesting thing about this flick is that it has absolutely nothing to do with anything else Tony Scott has done afterwards. Indeed, Tony Scott has made mostly solid action movies throughout his whole career but his debut was definitely something quite different. As a matter of fact, it is actually one of the most intriguing vampire films ever made, with some rather steamy sex scenes with 2 giants, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. To make things even cooler, you even have David Bowie starring as a vampire. To be honest, since it was a directing debut, the narration was sometimes rather weak and the pacing was also rather sluggish so I have to admit that even though it was really intriguing, it was still not entirely successful. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it is still my favorite movie directed by Tony Scott.

WarGames (1983)


Notes: Basically, it is one of those movies I have been hearing about for years and I was definitely eager to finally check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a really solid thriller and probably the most convincing movie dealing with hacking that I have seen so far. You see, I have been working in the ICT branch for many years and even though I’m not an expert (the cause of so much frustrations for some of my dear colleagues…), it is always pretty neat to see a movie about this subject but it is always disappointing how ridiculous and unconvincing all the computer stuff turn out to be portrayed. This flick was however an exception. Indeed, even though I have no clue if what the main character did was actually possible, it seemed possible and what he did with his computer usually made sense. The other thing I enjoyed is the way those two high-school kids were portrayed and both Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy provided some decent performances. Unfortunately, even though the whole thing was really entertaining, it was still a little too far-fetched for my taste and there were still some major plot-holes. Still, for a thriller dealing with computers, it was pretty good and I really enjoyed it.

Notes: Even though it is pretty much a classic from the 80’s that managed at the time to win 5 Academy Awards including the Best Picture Academy Award, to be honest, I don't think the whole thing did grow old very well, I’m afraid. Above all, something that really prevented this movie from getting a higher rating from me was this terrible cheesy 80's soundtrack. Another thing that bothered me was how they added a lethal disease in the 3rd act just to add some extra drama. Seriously, it is just such a cheap gimmick. Still, I have to admit that it is a decent watch, above all, because pretty much all the characters involved were so flawed and messed-up and thanks to some really solid performances from the whole cast involved. On top of that, I have to admit that the scene when you get to see Shirley MacLaine bursting at the reception of the hospital shouting ‘Give my daughter the shot!’ was amazing and probably one of the most powerful scenes I have ever seen.

Videodrome (1983)


Notes: Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, it is definitely a typical Cronenberg feature and I thought it was pretty good. At the time, Cronenberg was still transitioning to some more commercial features easier to digest for the mainstream audience but there were still many of his famous trademarks that you could find in his rather gross horror features he made at the end of the 70’s. As a result, even though the whole thing was quite accessible , it was still pretty weird and sometimes a little bit hard to follow but there was definitely something quite spellbinding about the whole thing and there was no denying that it was visually quite impressive. James Woods, one of the most underrated actors that ever lived, was a perfect choice and he delivered one of his typical hysterical and over-the-top performances which did fit really well in Cronenberg’s demented world.

Notes: To be honest, for some reasons, I have never been really attracted by this movie. It probably had to do with its title. Indeed, on one hand, it was annoyingly patriotic and, on the other hand, it is simply plain lame. Still, this movie seemed to have such a decent reputation. Well, eventually, I thought it was actually a rather weird movie. The beginning, focusing on Yeager, was actually quite awesome and uplifiting thanks to a fine performance by Sam Shephard. But, for some reason, this awesome character was somehow dropped after 45 minutes and the movie focused above all on the first American astronauts. The story, at the same time, became some tribute to these American heroes but it also made fun of the whole endeavour and the whole thing pretty much looked like a circus. So, you had some action, drama and also some satirical comedy but this mix didn’t always work in my opinion. Anyway, even if I don't think it was great, I have to admit that the whole thing was sometimes quite spellbinding to behold.

Notes: Obviously, I have seen this movie many times when I was a kid but I still wanted to check it again. After all these years, it is still usually considered as the weakest installment of the original trilogy. Even though you could blame the Ewoks, I thought they were actually pretty cool but they were definitely another piece of evidence that this trilogy is actually pretty childish. It is not necessarily a bad thing but I just believe the whole thing is much more enjoyable when you watch it the first time when you are around 10-12 years old. No, the main issue in my opinion is that this sequel is almost a remake of the first movie. Indeed, the main plot is basically to destroy another death star against all odds. Sure, it was handled differently but the goal and outcome were pretty much the same. Still, it doesn't mean it was not a really entertaining flick though. Indeed, in my opinion, the Ewoks were childish but pretty cool, the whole extended intro with Jabba the Hutt was just really awesome and I really liked the way they developed the complex relationship between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Eventually, even if it might not be the best movie in this trilogy, it is still a fine blockbuster.

The Big Chill (1983)


Notes: Back in the 80’s, Lawrence Kasdan was really on fire. Not only he wrote some of the biggest box-office successes of the time (‘Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back’, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, ‘Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi’) , he managed also to launch a very successful directing career as well. Unfortunately, later on, his movies were honestly not that good and it has been at least 20 years since he has written or directed something really worthwhile. Anyway, this movie was his second directing effort and, even though it is nowadays pretty much forgotten, it was really critically heralded when it was released. Indeed, there was quite an impressive cast (Tom Berenger, Glenn Close, Jeff Goldblum, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Meg Tilly) and they all delivered some solid performances which were probably the most attractive aspect of this flick. There was even Kevin Costner who was unknown at the time but his scenes were cut eventually. Personally, I enjoyed above all William Hurt who was one of the best actors at work in the 80’s. Such a shame his career didn’t keep up later on as he is definitely one of the most underrated actors at work nowadays.
