typical moore

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 23 June 2007 04:00 (A review of Sicko)

its very predictable how moore will present a topic. If you are used to bowling for columbine or even his tv series "awful truth", you just know what happens.

I guess on a lower level it is important that he does what he does, but any person who is really interested in politics and has a bit background knowledge can not just go with him.

When he loves european healthcare so much, why didn't he talk about the progress of change that is taking place currently in europe? The "everything is free" systems encourage a mentality where everyone tries to get as much out of the syystem as he can, resulting in high taxes and costs for every individual.
So actually, things here are going back to make patients pay individually to reduce costs ...

didn't meet expectations

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 27 May 2007 10:25 (A review of Open Water)

I was curious and bought the DVD. But now after watching it, I am going to sell it again. This is definitely not the movie you want to watch twice.

The whole idea of the plot is cool (two people alone on the ocean, but there is just to little going on and that what is happening ("something touched my leg") is hard to show on film.
Would have been an awesome book ...

solid entertainment

Posted : 10 years, 6 months ago on 25 May 2007 02:04 (A review of Firewall)

once again, ford plays the man who is forced to become the hero.
Predictable? Yes. Unrealistic: For sure. Entertaining: Admitably, yes.

watch and forget

a movie that ends the moment you eject the dvd. Adam Sandler is a poor actor and should stick to slapstick.

downhill

Posted : 10 years, 7 months ago on 19 May 2007 10:31 (A review of Spider-Man 3)

While the first one was amazing and the second still great, the third is just "good".
My Problem is that they put too much inside. Three villians, friendship, love, ...
Hope the next will concentrate on one theme. And hopefully feature "the Rhino" :-)

strange

Posted : 10 years, 8 months ago on 19 April 2007 09:46 (A review of Atomised)

It took three tries for me to get through this movie. It's a german allstar-movie, so if you are interested in german cinema, it's a "has-to-see" film. But still, I didn't get it.
Something's missing. I feel like I've been tricked by some simple plot details and sad/melodramatic moments.
Soundtrack is brilliant though.

surprisingly good

Posted : 10 years, 8 months ago on 12 April 2007 10:30 (A review of The Devil Wears Prada)

this was on top of my "never want to see it" list (ok, 2nd, right after Sleepy Hollow ...). Too fashion-ish, too girl-ish, too-whatever.

But now that I saw it, I really enjoyed it. It's a nice, shallow story and fashion is just the carrier, not the topic. So do your girlfriends a favor, rent this movie, you wont regret and they will love you (even more).

Rock'N'Roll

Posted : 10 years, 8 months ago on 26 March 2007 10:19 (A review of Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny)

This is a must see if you love Rock Music. Not only because the Folkrock Jack and Kyle produce is awesome, but because this is a dedication to rock music itself.
As he already did width School of Rock, Black works hard on getting the Best Music Genre out of its niche and bring it to a broader cinema audience.
It plays with all cliches and features some hillarious ideas, like the "Rock History Museum".

If you have seen the Tenacious D TV show before, you already know some (ok, most) of the songs and gags, but that doesn't matter at all.

Watch it! Go to the cinema, rent it on your way back and pre-order the DVD.
