I think the movie came up with some very creative ideas for the basis but it was, after all, a movie for a young audience and a bit to hyperactive for me. Animation wasn't too shabby as you are used to it from modern animating studios but however I look at it it remains a "film to entertain me without having to use my brain" for me.

Finally, finally, FINALLY I got to see this film. And I loved it. What a cheerful, uplifting musical with such fascinating dancing talents. I adore these kind of 50's and 60's films anyway, they've got that special something!

The Lorax (2012)
31 July 2012

Average film with a humour more directed to children but it sure is full of criticism that may also be interesting for adults to think about. Well, it wasn't really bad and the animation was fine but the thing that made it worth watching was the "ONCE-LER SWAG". That's all I need to say.

War Horse (2011)
31 July 2013

Beautiful Benedict and beautiful Hiddles in uniforms. More than enough eyecandy for a war movie. And then everything got worse and catastrophic and the story still progressed like some kind of fairy tale and in the end it was just too much with the music and all the highly emotional events and the stream of my tears couldn't be stopped anymore. All in all it probably wasn't that outstanding and unique but on the emotional level it was brilliant.

Sherlock (2010)
28-30 July 2012

I don't even know where to start because all of these emotions are too much for me to actually phrase something logical into words of judgment. I can just bandy petty word about, like how I really enjoyed the beautiful and fitting soundtrack, Cumberbatch's portayel of Sherly, JohnLock to my heart's content and beyond, adorable Freeman-Watson, thrilling stories, great shift to the present time...ugh, it goes on. I want season 3, NOW!

I exptected this film to be lame but I decided to watch it because of precious Tom Hardy. To my surprise I was disabused and actually enjoyed it. Reese and the guys made me laugh and the story surely wasn't that innovative but certainly not boring either. And even though it was a comedy, I was dealing with a constant heartache for Tuck.
Tom, oh Tom, how dou you so seduce me so?

In Time (2011)
23 July 2012

The idea was certainly a good and interesting one but they didn't elaborate on it well enough which is a shame. And even though it was an action film it was more boring that action packed. The only thing that kept me watching was Cillian Murphy who was in it but he didn't save the film either.

How? HOW can a cute and fluffy film about my favourite ligh music club be so emotional?
4 of the 5 members of the K-ON! music club are about to gradute. They plan to go to Lodnon for a graduation trip. That's all very much fun but then they come back and they have to say goodbye to to Azusa, the only Junior amongst them and it's just so sentimental and beautiful and ugh, too much for my heart. Maybe I cried so much because I went through the same a month ago.
Anyway, the animation was more beautiful than ever, the typical K-ON! charm was maintained, the humour was as good as always and story was sweet and a great addition to the series.

Wow, just wow. I know that David Lynch does great stuff and I was never really disappointed by any of his films but I didn't expect Mullholland Dr. to astonish me that much. A straight-foward yet clever plot that is as open to interpretation as in every other work of Lynch. It is perfectly complicated, just how I like it. And the symbolism, the colours, the charatcers, the music, the setting, the themes...it's all fascinating, gripping, disturbing and appealing. And the camera provides an incredible amount of suspense, sometimes it's almost unbearable.

Hulk Vs. (2009)
14 July 2012
Hulk VS Wolverine

Deadpool was in this film. I adore Deadpool. I adore Deadpool with Nolan North as his voice actor because it's so perfect. I didn't care about the others characters much. Just that Deadpool is actually stronger and just served as a little sidekick in this and that wasn't very realistic. Mr. Wilson could kick everybody's ass if he wanted too. Besides talkative Wade there was...fighting...and more fighting...and even more of it and in the end it wasn't even that exciting but the animation wasn't too bad and hey, I couldn't expect anything more from a title called "Hulk VS Wolverine...But did I already mention that Deadpool was in it *teehee*. He never was never presented accurately before imo so that made me kinda happy.

Hulk VS Thor

Um...who had the brilliant idea to make a 45 minutes film of nothing but superheroes fighting each other. It gets boring after a while, guys! Especially when there's about 5% of story and the rest is just "HULK SMAASH!". The art style changed, in my opinion to the worse but the animation was still okay. Loki remained to be the only character I liked since he was as manipulative as usual. But of course the characters I like always get a bad end...

Ugh, I don't know if this was a waste of time or just a...different experience that I had to make. The North-Deadpool was superb. I should have watched a compilation of his scenes somewhere on Youtube though...that would have been wiser.

Well, this film is already called Shinyaku Benizakura-hen and that's also what happens, the Benizakura Arc is retold with slightly improved animations and a few great additional scenes. Gintama joked about this film many many times and in the end they actually went and produced it. It maintains its characteristic charm but seems a bit rushed since they wanted to cram everything into 90 minutes. It's too bad that the second movie with a topic that wasn't touched upon in the series will remain a big, fat lie forever.
So in the end still prefer the Benizakura Arc from the series, as it is more emotional, focussed and detailed.

Silent Hill (2006)
8 May 2012

The film started with the SH theme and the first noise I heard was that one certain sound: Creepers! (though there weren't any) So in the first seconds I already knew, they'd be using the game's music too. That's promising! Unfortunately the music turned out to be about the only thing I came to like in this film.

Instead of Harry Mason the film introduces us to our female protagonist named Rose that needs to find her daughter Sharon. The intro is pretty much the same as in the game, complete with the dark alley, the siren and the rusting.
The appearance of the first monster in the film, a Grey Child, strangely enough didn't scare me one bit. I really wonder why because usually I'm a big scaredy-cat.
And somewhere around that time Rose already got on my nerves and I knew this wouldn't be as good as I had expected...Cybil looks and acts pretty much as in the games and at least she's not annoying.
The second monster, the Armless Man that is pretty much the Lying Figure from the second game, didn't scare me either. How is that even possible? In SH2 I shrieked at every LF but oh well...
In the Midwhich elementary school Rose comes across a former janitor that chases her, as well as some Creepers
with small human faces. She meets Cybil again and some of the brute cultists that look like the Bogeyman from Silent Hill Downpour (which don't mean well by her though). And then even Pyramid head swings by. Yeah, how logical. That is probably also one of my main point of critique.
It's fine to throw in things from several games even it is based on the 1st but Pyramid Head has to have a reason to be there. He's not just some monster for scaring the characters and viewers. He's a punisher. And in fact, he wasn't even that scary. The way he acted and moved sure was ooc, that part where he ripped the skin of a woman wasn't frightening but just gross, and nobody would be able to put a scracth on him because he's basically invincible until he's not needed anymore, especially not Rose because Pyramid Head obviously didn't derive from her mind. So he was just there to show off I guess. Without his characteristic charm and topless though.
Rose is still one idiotic woman and Alessa is pretty underwhelming and not scary in the scenes when she is supposed to be scary...oookay.
It turns out that in the film the siren actually comes from the church to warn all the other people from the changes to the Otherworld...or something. Doesn't make much sense. I mean are they all really able to see the Otherworld and who are all these people anyway? The Brethren consisting of mere town people shouldn't be that big since they go along with gruesome rituals and must have been the creatures' targets all the time. They also seemed to know "Mr. Traingle-Man" which is even more illogical because of so many reasons I don't even want to know because I'd just throw my hands up in horror again.

The nurses in the hallway were too many for my taste so the effect wasn't that strong on me. At this point they should have used the original sounds and the ost from 2 since these nurses were basically the bubblehead nurses. Although I think they sounded a bit too human.

Alessa's flashback was really well done and creepy as hell, but the Alessa in real life tried a bit too hard for my taste. To me it didn't seem natural but like she wanted to appear scary although she wasn't.
The end was so-so but at least there was some kind of climax. Bit I wasn't impressed very much. I can see that they tried but I guess I'm just too picky. I'm always like that with video game adaptions. Maybe the second will be better though.

The Number 23 (2007)
2 May 2012

I was completely taken aback because I heard so many bad things about this film but I really enjoyed it. A very interesting plot with realistic points of reference but surreal elements as well. And I realized how uch I enjoyed Carrey's acting in this. He should play serious roles more often, I like'em better than his exaggerated goofing off.

Iron Sky (2012)
10 April 2012

I knew what I was getting myself into with Iron Sky - a real trashy film. And that was exactly what it was at its finest, including a satirical and political criticism. Me and my friends (with whom I watched it) were probably an especially convenient audience since we always enjoy making fun of the Nazis and all. The film didn't only parody the National Socialists but the US-American government, the UN and every sci-fi and over the top cliché as well. Iron Sky was random (to the max) and eventually extremely pointless (when you take the hidden criticism away) but that is exactly what it wanted to be and I was quite entertained. And oh my, I was also served extremely well with those uniforms. Yes, I'm a sucker for uniforms. Especially the Nazi ones. Don't judge me, their fashion sense was (partly) very stylish. That doesn't mean I approve of the things they stand for etc.!! Ô_ó

New year, same principle :)
I won't add movies I've already seen before. Just ones that are new to me.

I have to apologise. Lately I've been so terribly lazy and didn't write my opinion on the films. I do have one but as more time passes I tend to forget writing it here in a nice form.
I will catch up on it soon, I swear!!!
