The Imitation Game

The best recent movie running in theaters I've seen for a while.
It's about the British genius Alan Turing and his efforts on breaking the Third Reich's Enigma code in order to influence World War II.
Truly a wellmade movie, well-played and exciting.
Sure there are a few flaws (like casting a Hollywood beauty as Turing's partner Joan Clarke even though she looked way different) but they don't spoil the movie for me. I also like that the main weight of the story was put on Turing's work, not on his homosexuality (even though it also plays a role, of course).
It's a movie I can definitely recommend.

I agree. 5/5 stars.

Sin City 2 - Honestly i thought it was perfectly serviceable. I agree with Brad in that the Josh Brolin/ Eva Green storyline was the most interesting one, the other two were pretty pointless. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was good but again, his story didn't amount to much. I definitely liked this more than Brad did, at least I think. Doesn't even come close to the first one but then again that one is a fucking masterpiece. Overall an ok film.

^^ No, but I'll probably add it to my ever-expanding Netflix list Smile

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN - Gerard Butler has to save President Harvey Dent from terrorists and damn near all of DC gets blown up/murdered in the process. This was terrible but it had a kind of Chuck Norris-y earnestness about it that I found weirdly endearing. 4/10

FRANK - Jon (Domnhall Gleeson) is a frustrated musician who thinks he's got his big break when he joins an indie rock band fronted by the strange, but magnetic and super-creative, Frank (Michael Fassbender). I loved this movie. It's funny and sad and painful and hopeful, and one of the few movies about artists that really gets all the pains of the creative process. I swear I get more stupidly in love with Fassbender with every movie of his I see. 9.5/10

Oz the Great and Powerful (Netflix)

Blablabla Oz the fake wizard blablabla prophecy blablabla three hot witches blablabla saving the world.
What a soulless product which - unfortunately - seems to follow the road of Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" completely. Nothing in this thing fascinates or amuses (not even unintentionally), everything feels unnatural and artifical, the spirit of the Oz books was completely missed. And the great Bruce Campbell gets wasted for a cameo of a few seconds. Even with good will I can only decribe this as an absolute bad movie.

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Yeah, that movie from 1992.
I call it mediocre: On one hand its story is handled in a rush (parts of it unfortunately changed which goes so far that Dracula is able to walk outdoors in the sun), the miscast Jonathan Harker and awkward overacting. But on the other hand this all leads to some level of entertainment (= unintentional fun) and, to be fair, really good effects. Such a movie isn't really scary, there were two tough scenes at the most (with the children). In the end it's not a good horror movie or a good movie adaptation of a novel but, yeah, I had some fun.

Misery

Speaking of movie adaptations of books...here I don't know the original book by Stephen King but I was highly pleased by this movie - because it managed to scare.
One of the worst situations I can image is to be held hostage by an aggressive person (without the outside world knowing any of it) and this scenario was shown perfectly, thanks to the great actors and the very suspenseful staging. Just: Wow!

John Wick

For what it was trying to be it was very fine: A revenge action movie with some dark humour. I don't totally dig it, however, I still enjoyed it during it's almost-2-hour running time (although I thought there were some slow or unnecessary sequences, especially towards the ending). That's something. And keep in mind: All the violence, all the shootings and deaths because of a little puppy. Sweet!

Robots (Netflix)

What a painful experience...I thought before that "Robots" wouldn't be a good movie but THIS bad?... Afterwards I thought about it for a long while if there were things in this film that I liked. Unfortunately I couldn't think of anything worth mentioning...the story has been done to death and is totally uninspired (aside from that, parts from the plot are either not explained or explained very loosely), the characters are annoying stereotypes you don't give a rat's ass about, the jokes are horrible and so are the popcultural and sexual references. The animation is no eye candy at all, aside from maybe one or two design ideas. "Robots" is just a lame excuse for putting this bad mix into a robot world. In a robot world including fart jokes. Just horrendous.

The Interview

Yes, the movie about Kim Jong Un and two American TV guys trying to interview and kill him. Unfortunately and obviously, this comedy was also meant to be seen by young teenagers in their anal phase because the jokes about pop stars, sex, dicks, boobs, asses and gay people won't end. Those jokes are reason why I feel this movie was a missed opportunity. The criticism about what's wrong in North Korea gets mentioned here but it's guaranteed to be interrupted by silly toilet humour. The movie just doesn't manage to really sink in with it's criticism. At least there are two scenes that come close and are quite good (the supermarket scenes and the interview itself) but the few good scenes almost get lost between all those pubertal jokes (although I admit that there are a few that were at least worth a chuckle).
As a comedy it's to unfunny and immature to me, as a movie about North Korea and its dictator it's not snappy enough. There are good and funny scenes but the whole end product appears more disillusioning and disappointing.

Those books were more horror story than romance (in addition to being a bafflingly inaccurate - and unerotic - depiction of BDSM). The absolute best-case scenario for the movie would've been a THE ROOM-esque trainwreck; but based on the reviews I've seen it's just bland and stupid. I guess it's only fair for all the bored, sheltered soccer moms to have something to do while their husbands are off jerking it to that bullshit Chris Kyle movie. It's just really frustrating that they don't know or care that there are so much better options out there.

JURASSIC PARK III - It's about as by-the-numbers as a "more is more" action sequel can get, but after watching it I am kind of looking forward to JURASSIC WORLD. 5/10

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA - Peter O'Toole didn't win an Oscar for his performance in this, which as good an argument as any that the Oscars are complete bunk. 9/10

Nekromantik

A perverted couple get a corpse and start having sex with it but everything falls apart when the guy loses his job.
This German cult movie (that I had to order from Austria) is nothing that I love or hate. I wouldn't call it the worst movie ever either. When you read a title like "Nekromantik" you can easily guess what's on the menue. And with that said: The main scene with the couple and the corpse was not made that bad (except for that the vision gets way too blurry too often) and I do admit that I find the topic not uninteresting. The only real complaint that I have is the unnecessary scene with the rabbit although Wikipedia told me that it wasn't killed specifically for the movie (thank God!).
What else to say? The acting is not good and the music is sometimes very silly but in the end it's an okay film that could have even taken more necrophilia scenes.

Tarzan 2 (Netflix)

The kinda-prequel to Disney's "Tarzan" (a movie I like).
It plays in Tarzan's childhood when he - again - has his identity problems. He runs away from home and befriends an old, lonely gorilla but also gets to meet a family of antisocial gorillas who look for a new home.
This is a solid prequel compared to other Disney sequels/prequels but still not a very good movie at all. What IS good are the visuals (especially the landscapes looks very good) and the old gorilla (voiced by George Carlin) who is likeable and funny. On the other hand you witness humour that is doubtlessly aimed on younger children and not on the whole family, a mediocre soundtrack (some recycled songs and some new you easily forget after watching the movie) and a story that's too familiar (main character trying to find out what he is and where he belongs).
In the end it's not a horrible but an unnecessary movie. You hardly learn anything new about Tarzan except for an important friend in Tarzan's life that he doesn't mention or recall in his following years in the 1999 movie.

Birdman or (the unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Finally I could watch this movie which I've wanted to see for a few weeks. Is it really that good? I can say: Yes. At least I have little to complain about. To me it's not necessarily one of the best movies ever but it was an interesting, cinematic experience. Some scenes drag, others are crazy, amusing and suspenseful. The idea of putting only a few cuts in this 2-hour-film isn't bad either. The actors were pretty good, too, especially Michael Keaton who carries big parts of the movie. What's also funny is how it handles the topics acting and movie cliches. However, I would have loved to see more actual Birdman scenes (but I understand if they didn't want to overdo this).
In a nutshell: Recommended!

Jupiter Ascending
Little did I know Academy Award Winner Eddie Redmayne would steal this movie from an impressive cast and spectacular settings that deserved a more coherent script and more paced direction from the Siblings Wachowski. Worth the ticket price for Balem and the designs.
3/5

Hentai Kamen

A re-watch after two months and this film hasn't lost any of its magic! Smile

Asterix: The Land of the Gods

I don't know how many people here are familiar with Asterix. Let's say: It is a French comic book series, very popular in Europe. I also grew up with the comic books and the animated movies, however, fans were treated with more or less shitty adaptations in the last 20 or so years (at least!).
Thankfully this one, however, was a pleasant surprise. It catches the spirit of Asterix pretty well, even in CGI (that is mostly good-looking with some exceptions). The story is based on a comic book that, in my opinion, doesn't have much potential for a movie. So the makers did, of course, changes like new characters and conflicts. Some work okay, some do not. I also think that the first half of the movie works better than the second one.

The Cinema Snob Movie

I'm very ashamed to admit that I haven't watched the movie until now (but that's because I only now ordered the DVD).
To be very honest: It's a movie that I only like because I dig Brad Jones and his people. If I didn't know them and their internet works, I would be bored and confused very quickly. It's fun to watch Team Snob acting here and I gladly forgive the little technical weaknesses that I wouldn't forgive in a blockbuster production (mediocre, rather quiet soundmixing and a few scenes in blurry picture quality). But to be honest again: Two hours are a bit too long.
Overall I don't love this production but I like it.

Paranoia

When it comes to movies by Team Snob I like this one a bit more than "The Cinema Snob Movie". I think it's because it's a bit shorter and I like the idea of telling rather a dark thriller story here (the twists remind me a little of "Fight Club" btw). "Paranoia" has suspense, cool scenes, actors and soundtrack. I also like this!

Being John Malkovich

The crazy and quite original plot about people exploiting a portal to John Malkovich's head impresses. I'm not a fan of Malkovich or have a huge interest in his works but it was still a lot of fun watching all this. And there are a couple of great scenes; from the puppet plays to Malkovich exploring his own portal.
When it comes to movies from Spike Jonze, however, I like "Her" a little bit more.

Whiplash

Quite a brutal music movie about a young drummer being taught - or better: destroyed - by his teacher.
It's a movie giving me more adrenaline rushes than some action movies. It's no movie about the beauty of music or about the fun of mastering an instrument. No, it's about a teacher mercilessly pushing others to their limits and - of course - about his drumming student who bears all this as well as possible to be the best drummer. It hardly ever gets boring even if the audience doesn't have much musical know-how. The making, cast and story are great. I only struggle with the story about what's right and worth it in the end. But I won't spoil to much. Bottom line: "Whiplash" fascinates and I'm glad that I saw it.

EDIT:

Flushed away
(Netflix)

An Aardman production I have missed so far.
To be honest, I've been rather sceptical about the CGI animation in this movie but then I realized that this was the least of the problems. Only a few jokes really worked, the others were rather flat or just unfunny. The villains were funny but their plan was a little all over the place. It's probably the worst Aardman movie but itself it's not too horrible to watch, I've seen way worse animated movies.

One Hour Photo (Netflix)

An amazing thriller starring Robin Williams (which was mostly known as a comedian but you quickly forget that while watching) as Sy the "photo guy" developing photos and believing in the power and beauty of snapshots. He especially stalks a family by collecting copies of their photos but gets mad when he discovers a little dark secret in their idyll.

The Swan Princess (Netflix)

Yes, the animated princess flick from 1994. And it suffers from it's quite confusing, illogical story and some technical sloppiness but in the end it was at least a bit of fun. There ARE some beautiful animation and backgrounds, Odette is very pretty, the songs are okay, Derek the Prince as well as villain Rothbart are unintentionally funny and therefore entertaining and as the main characters go the voices were cast quite well. Rather silly than romantic or suspenseful.

Shaun the Sheep Movie

A very pleasant experience! I had a lot of laughs as well as the other people watching (from the children to the 50-ish year old guy next to me) and most of the jokes really work well. The timing is also good and regarding that it's an Aardman production it's natural to see beautiful stop motion animation as well as tons of hidden stuff in the back- and foreground. The villian, btw, is so funny! Even if you're not a fan of the TV series (personally, I'm not but I think it's nice) or of Shaun himself, you still can gain some fun of watching the movie.

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

The current Scientology documentary I could watch online (I have no access to HBO). In it the main topics, as I felt it, were the story of Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard and single stories of well-known ex-members and escapists.
When it comes to information (also for laymen), atmosphere and showing original material of the cult it's a good documentary. The way it's presented it reminded me of the terrific documentary "Jonestown: Life and Death of Peoples Temple" which I already like.
For my taste, however, the documentary was focused on celebrity members a bit too much (especially when you consider that their lives cannot be compared with average Scientologists) and some facts feel like being quickly squeezed in at the end. And people like me who read and learn a lot about this organization won't learn much new stuff. Still, it is worth a watch because it makes clear (hehe) once more why it's a very bad idea to join despite of all its pomp and curcumstance.

HIGH ANXIETY - Mel Brooks "thriller" which parodies Hitchcock movies (with major sight gags sending up THE BIRDS, PSYCHO, and VERTIGO). I'd say it's a second-tier Brooks flick, not as great as YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN or BLAZING SADDLES but enjoyable. 6/10

LIFE ITSELF - Really well-done doc about Roger Ebert, discusses his career, marriage, and dysfunctional relationship with Gene Siskel. Footage taken very close to the end of his life punctuates. 10/10

Atlantis

The 2001 Disney movie which I missed back then. I admit that I was surprised and impressed by parts of the movie. I loved some of the characters (Milo and Kida are a nice, different couple and the crew is very funny, especially Vinny), the culture of Atlantis is very nicely presented and the story is not that bad either. However, some jokes fall flat and especially the villain was boring because of his motivation (the money - what else?).
Not a very great movie but still very enjoyable and it entertained me more than, let's say, "Frozen".

Atlantis: Milo's Return (Netflix)

The sequel to the Disney movie "Atlantis", although you can't call it a decent sequel when it's only three episodes of a planned TV series sewn together (leading to three different stories in a movie).
And it also looks like TV quality: Quite cheap and sloppy animation, the stories aren't really interesting (it's the characters checking out mysteries back on Earth, nearly nothing about Atlantis itself included) and the characters pretty much lost their traits.
It's not as painful as "Pocahontas 2" for example but very boring and unnecessary. Also if you want to learn more about Atlantis or the characters' relationships, prepare to get disappointed.

13 Minutes

The new movie by Oliver Hirschbiegel about Georg Elser, the man who nearly managed to kill Hitler in 1939 with a time bomb (and got arrested, tortured and killed in the end for it).
The German press praises the movie, I, however, am not that delighted by this movie. Of course it has its good elements (especially the lead actor playing Elser, showing Elser not only as the glorious hero and some scenes) but mostly it felt very schmaltzy and made to please a big crowd. The constant kissing and making out scenes got quickly on my nerves. And the scenes showing domestic violence on Elser's girlfriend (committed by her actual husband) were more brutal to me than the actual Elser torture scenes.
In the end it's okay at best but it doesn't feel like a decent tribute to Georg Elser to me.

Ex Machina

Quite an interesting movie about artificial intelligence in many ways. The design of Ava is great and the idea of making a chamber drama of this movie is also wonderful (so that the luxury mansion feels more and more like a prison). This movie didn't touch or impress me as much as "Her" but I still enjoyed watching this very much and wanted to know where the story goes.

Age of Ultron...

It was fine. Being the comic book lover that I am, I was mildly pleased with the ending result of this completely. As pleased as the Grizzly was killing that poucher...Anyway it was fine overall.

What I lately saw in my vacation (often watched with my dad):

Hot Shots! Part Deux
It's embarrassing but before then I had never seen this sequel to the great comedy "Hot Shots".
Now I have caught up and can say: Yes, this is very funny! A lot of gags (still) work and I love that Richard Crenna played and spoofed his role as the Colonel in "First Blood".
However, I still prefer the first movie a bit more.

Dracano
Another very very dumb and cheap monster movie where even the dumb humans are more amusing than the boring dragons.

Monty Python's Fliegender Zirkus
Another rewatch of this German Monty Python production. Still funny as hell!

The Team
A documentary about the life and training of the German soccer team in Brazil where they played and won the World Cup last year. A really interesting and sometimes funny documentary about interesting soccer players and their coach.

You don't mess with the Zohan
I was more or less forced to watch this Adam Sandler comedy (and Adam Sandler comedies are not my cup of tea) and first I admit that there are three scenes or so that are funny. But the rest is lazily done, the main character is anything but a character and, well, I wouldn't rewatch it that soon.

A list of animated shorts...

Nuggets
In my opinion it's a genius animated view on drug (or any) addiction. Simple and impressive. One of animator Andreas Hykade's finest works.

Love and Theft
Also by Andreas Hykade: A psychedelic, colourful trip into faces turning into things.

We lived in the Grass
Also by Andreas Hykade: It's a story so confusing that I can't write much about it. Let's say: It was an experience.

The Runt
Also by Andreas Hykade: The animation and story were very impressive and a bit creepy. A boy wants to keep a small weak rabbit baby but has to promise that he'll kill it in a year.

Rubicon
Visually it's quite interesting but a lot just repeats itself and gets more boring in the end.

Trim Time
A nice little film about a hair dresser cutting a tree's leaves.

Tale about the Cat and the Moon
It started pretty well (a cat falling in love with the moon) but it became more and more boring and lacked in substance.

The Exciting Life of a Tree
By Bill Plympton: Life in the eyes of a tree (with sights like humping couples or animals during a hunt). A very nice idea, well executed.

Wunderwerk (german for "miracle work")
It was okay in animation but also a bit dull. And it's another story about a creature (in this case: A mechanic bird) that belongs to freedom, not to the owner's little home. Didn't make me excited or amazed.

Birthday Boy
A CGI short about a little boy fantasizing about war battles while going through a deserted village during the Korean war in the 1950s. Not very pretty or thrilling but it's quite interesting to follow.

The Lump
With stop motion and a song the story of outcast George is told who has a lump on his head one day (that looks like another head but beautiful). The story is not all gold but still very entertaining, also thanks to the animation (I'm a sucker for this kind of animation) and the great song.

Superflat Monogram
Actually it's some kind of Japanese Louis Vuitton commercial but as an anime short. A little girl gets sucked into a psychedelic, colourful world full of monsters, hip music, selfies and LV symbols. Weird but also nice. But this short didn't make me liking Louis Vuitton or handbags either.

A Short Love Story in Stop Motion
The animation is quite nice (btw: There's not only stop motion like the title suggests) but this 3 minute-short felt very empty and dull in the end. Needed more minutes and also more substance.

I watched 'Terminal City Ricochet', a dystopian black comedy featuring the Dead Kennedys' Jello Biafra. I'd best describe it as 'Brazil' meets 'Repo Man' because that's clearly what the filmmakers were going for, though it has a frenetic, low-budget, intentionally campy aesthetic reminiscent of golden age Troma, all of which sounds like Heaven to me. Josh Hadley hyped it a lot on a few episodes of 'Radiodrome', and while it wasn't as great as it could've been, it's still a fantastic slice of cult esoterica and definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of either 'Repo Man' or 'Brazil'.

For over a month I totally haven't managed to update here. So let's go with what I've seen lately:

The Babadook

Finally, the "Babadook" arrived my homeplace one month ago! I went there, watched it and was totally impressed. This is at least my second favourite theater movie of 2015 so far. At least. Yes, it is a great horror movie and one of the better ones I've seen so far in my life.
The main actress and actor get my respect.

Mary and Max

Speaking of Australian productions: I also finally got to buy and watch "Mary and Max", a stop motion animated film by Adam Elliot who has already produced a few magnificant shorts. The quite touching and funny story about a girl and an older man developing a bond via letters loses its drive a bit in the second half but still is great to watch and I recommend it more to adults than to kids.
And I normally don't praise celebrity voice actors for being in animated movies (there are masses of them nowadays) but Philipp Seymour Hoffman really did a good job as Max.

Meet the Mormons (Netflix)

To be clear first: I am critical towards religions, cults and their people. I find Mormonism and Mormons at least more trustworthy and okay than other religions but I still wouldn't let a Mormon convert me to it.
I was spontaneously interested as I found this on Netflix but got quickly disappointed. This was a pure "These people are happy and live perfect lives because they believe XYZ" propaganda movie. It never felt informative or subtle, it also didn't tell me what Mormonism actually teaches or is about. It only mentioned for a moment that there is a Mormon book that plays a role next to the Bible. So most of the movie could also be put in a propaganda movie of any other religion or cult. The end was a bit more interesting when young mormons pack for their two-year-mission.
If you want to learn something about mormons but also in an entertaining way, go watch the South Park episode.

Kung Fury (Steam)

A funny, 1980s loving short that put a lot of love in details. I watched it alone and laughed out loud a couple of time (which is hard whenever I watch funny movies alone). I only think that the Hitler part felt a little tedious and unoriginal (as if the makers couldn't think of anything else to parody than - again - Hitler).

Mad Max: Fury Road

I'm not one of the people who are totally impressed or excited about it but I still enjoyed most of the movie. I liked the action, some of the characters (only Max himself felt so bland), I liked the landscapes, I liked the design. It was really okay and I agree that it's a good idea to watch this on the big screen.

The Road to El Dorado (Netflix)

A rather disappointing experience.
The animation was part okay and part "this 2D/3D mix does NOT go well together", the jokes often fell flat, the soundtrack was totally forgetable. What I liked were some characters and scenes but overall I don't feel that this is a good movie or guilty pleasure. But at least I can guess that this is not the worst Dreamworks has to offer.

Love and Mercy, a bio about Brian Wilson of the beach boys. i loved it actually. and for those who don't know much about the group that's not a big deal, there was one scene in it when we see a little guy that's suppose to be Van Dykes Parks he's never said by name. so those who aren't familar who the hell he is won't even know who he's suppose to be. some facts they got wrong but oh well no harm done i guess. i still enjoyed the hell out of it and i will no doubt will prolly end up buying it on Blu-ray when it comes out whenever it comes out

Actually I wanna see "Love & Mercy". It makes me curious. And finally it arrived at my city's theaters.

it's filmed different than you'd expect, here's how it's filmed, in one minute you are seeing him making Pet Sounds, than in a flash you are in the 80's and he's older and it goes back and forth between the 80's and the 60's. it takes awhile to get used to the way it's edited together. you'd think that it'd have the 60's 1st and than the 80's. but no that's not the way they decided to make it. weather that's a good thing or a bad thing i dunno.

but i just thought you should know ahead of time that's all. i was actually hoping that Brad would have gotten it by him cause i was honestly curious on what he'd think about it?

I've seen a couple trailers for that one but it doesn't look like the theaters around here will be picking it up :/

Recently seen:
BIG EYES - the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), whose second husband Walter (a scenery-chomping Christoph Waltz) claimed credit for her rather garish but wildly popular "waif" art and essentially kept her as his own personal sweatshop until she managed to beat him in court. It's a fantastic return to form for director Tim Burton; visually lush and the movie relies on the story for its quirkyness instead of forcing it. 9/10

SCREAM 4 - it was so so bad.

GONE GIRL - Fincher did as good a job with the material as I think could have been done. It's a little too much cynicism porn for my taste, but beautifully shot with great acting from Ben Affleck, Kim Dickens, (surprisingly) Tyler Perry and especially Rosamund Pike as evil evil Amy. 7/10
