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: 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: 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: Since I have never been a fan of the Transformers franchise, I wasn’t expecting much 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: Well, I have to admit that I really enjoyed the first action scene and, for a while, I thought the damned thing might turn out to be a nice surprise after all. On top of that, Xander Cage is so much more fun and entertaining than Dominique Toretto's who is such a bore. Unfortunately, after this cool come-back scene with the main character, I was amazed by how long it took them to bring up another neat action scene like that. Basically, most of the movie was filled with some seriously boring scenes when the characters had the most tedious conversations. Another issue was also the number of characters involved. Indeed, while 'xXx' was basically a one-man show, this time around, there was about a dozen of characters involved which made the whole thing looked like a mix of 'The Fast and The Furious' with 'The Expendables'. As a result, instead of getting some badass action scenes, they gave us some endless interactions between all these characters which was just not really entertaining at all.

Notes: Eventually, I have to agree with all the critics, this movie was just seriously weak. At first, it turned out to be some kind of mix of 'End of Watch', 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'District 9' which was pretty weird but, except for some very poor jokes, it actually had some potential. However, from the moment they get their hands on this magic wand, the damned thing just became rather lame. Indeed, not only the plot was just a convoluted mess but, above all, the whole thing was just a succession of rather boring generic actions scenes. I mean, sure, technically speaking, these action scenes were not bad but it became so tedious when the 2 main characters got stuck in a new shoot-out just after surviving one. Furthermore, I won't blame Will Smith and Joel Edgerton but their characters were rather boring. Indeed, even if there was a running time of 2 hours, since there was such a focus on the action stuff, there was no room left to develop these 2 guys or any other character. For David Ayer who had impressed everyone with 'End of Watch', it was another disappointing directing effort and, for Netflix, well, I guess we will have to wait a little bit longer before they blow us away with an amazing blockbuster.

Notes: At least, you have to admit that it did sound great on paper. I mean, it was directed by George Clooney, it was written by the Coen brothers and it was starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, so, it should have been a sure winner, right? I'm afraid not. Basically, they tried to deliver some kind of mix of a vintage suburban satire with a really half-baked Hitchcokian plot but the end-result was just completely tedious. To make things worse, there was another completely unnecessary and poorly developed sub-plot about some racial tension against a black family, apparently just to make sure that the viewers really understood that the US suburbs in the 50's were a really evil place to live. To be honest, nothing really worked in this movie. Sure, there was sometimes the usual quirkiness that you find in your typical Coen feature but it was never funny. Furthermore, the thriller part was just completely transparent and therefore really boring and, finally, none of the characters were remotely interesting or entertaining. For Clooney, a once really promising director, it was another failure and easily his weakest directing effort so far so you might wonder if the guy shouldn't think about going back to being a full-time actor again.

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: Well, unfortunately, it turned out to be another rather underwhelming directing effort from McG. First of all, most of the promotional material on Netflix was focusing on Bella Thorne and since it took forever before she showed up, I was wondering if I was maybe watching the wrong movie but she had after all a rather minor part so it was rather misleading. A bigger issue was that it took forever to really start which was even more problematic since it was actually a rather short movie. In my opinion, the concept was just too thin so almost all of the first half was some really slow and rather tedious introduction. Then, at last, the mayhem started but it was all rather generic and while this new set of characters was interesting, there was no time to properly develop them so all that was left was a succession of scenes supposedly gruesome and/or funny but it never became really entertaining. At least, I have to admit that I really liked the scene towards the end when the main character crashed his neighbour's car into his own house which was pretty awesome and completely unexpected but, unfortunately, that was pretty much the only scene that really worked for me.

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.
