The reasons why I wanted to watch Garden State were simple. First of all, it starred Natalie Portman. Second, it got a decent IMDB rating. Some guy left his home town when he was young, only to return a decade later for his mother’s funeral.
Woody Allen is making easy money by visiting big European cities and shooting a movie about the beauty of the city, the local culture and about people getting connected. After Paris and Barcelona, this time it was Rome that was visited by American tourists.
Dan: I fell in love with her, Alice.
Alice: Oh, as if you had no choice? There’s a moment, there’s always a moment, “I can do this, I can give into this, or I can resist it”, and I don’t know when your moment was, but I bet you there was one.
I really liked before sunrise where boy meets girl and only 1 night is the source for a complete movie. It’s sequel, before sunset, tells the story of the same 2 people meeting again 9 years later.
Ever since I saw Eva Green shining in Casino Royal, The Dreamers was on my list to watch.
I enjoyed every time Eva was on the screen, but unfortunately she couldn’t hide the weak script.
I rate it with a 6.
A Clint Eastwood directed film with Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon in the cast can’t be bad. So Invictus is indeed worth seeing. But it isn’t great either…
Tim Burton got famous by his movie Edward Scissorhands. Since then he kept producing recognizable movies different from the mainstream Hollywood releases.
