I’ve seen in less than a week, three bad movies, and I started to see but never letting the player more than half an hour (lot of time actually, half an hour is too valuable), another two or three movies. This is personal, of course, but anyway, I think that if I don’t consider Police Academy series mentionable in my Best 20 Comedy list, I’m not quite deranged, am I?
I just wanted to let you know, maybe you can give a better use to your time, and it’s not my intent at all to provoke you to see some trash of movies. The probability is greater that at least one of them you’ve already seen and eventually voted for it on imdb, and that’s The Avengers. I know it’s speculating the All American Unity and Strong Will, but it’s dumb. With all that great actors, it failed to impress me. It was worse than Hunger Games. It was with Robert “Iron Man” Downey Jr., one of my favorite actors, and it wasn’t enough. The subject, the action, everything was alienating. Full of misdirection, sorry to say it. Oh, and the screenplay sucked big.
Another reason the movie was down in my charts is Scarlett Johansson, which is rather a very bad actress, than a good one. The decoration (and not even that sometimes) is not enough for a movie. Maybe a freaky character would do her good, with her connections she even may win an Oscar soon.
Great disappointment with The Secret World of Arrietty, especially because of Miazaki’s implication (screenplay and “planning”). A horror for kids, an animation meant actually for little kids. That’s considering the subject and the “planning”, the pace, the everything. Miazaki and Disney Studios are not enough to put the seal on a picture. Even Ponyo was better. I thought Ponyo was actually the weakest of his movies. The Secret World of Arrietty is not directed and produced by the great Hayao Miazaki, but nevertheless it’s also on his movie palette. “The Borrowers” is a 1997 British-American action comedy film based on the children’s fantasy novel of the same name by Mary Norton. In 1998 it was nominated for the title of Best British Film in the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Between us, I couldn’t stand more than twenty minutes and “eject” was next, but this happened some times ago. I lack the patience to read the book for a wider opinion so, I don’t know which had more influence on Miazaki, the book or the movie.
The worst film I saw, was an “artie” from 2005, Miranda July’s Me and You and Everyone We Know. Sick. The gal had a complex. Don’t loose your time, better see something nice, like The Dictator, or Borat, or even nicer, like Team America: World Police. I’m not joking. John Hawkes and Miranda July, what a wonderful pair of freaks they did, in one of the worst movie I’ve ever seen.
Movies I couldn’t finish were the iconic Napoleon Dynamite, Jeff Who Lives at Home and The Nines. If there were others, they aren’t worth mentioning. Good bye for now. Don’t kill me.
