I'd never seen a Jacques Tati movie before, but had recently heard good things about his movies on
NPR, so when I saw this double feature was going to play last night, I figured it'd be a great opportunity to check out some of his work.
After seeing these films, the only appropriate comparison I could find is to how much I laughed when I first saw The Three Stooges as a kid.
A lot of sight gags are present, and it all comes out to be simple, easy to follow story lines filled laugh out loud comedic excellence.
Thanks, and go see these films, especially Mr. Hulot's Holiday, when you get a chance.
I saw it in "true" IMAX last night. Probably the best movie I've seen in IMAX to date. It may even
be better then the first movie.
What Bay's films lack in story line and character building, they certainly make up for in visual effects, be it fights scenes with giant robots or massive explosions. This movie had plenty of both. Just an FYI, Prime has some really nice fight scenes.
Shia gave a really good performance, and Fox finally showed she can act, although what really kills me in the Transformers movies is that her scripted dialogue(or lack of it) makes it seem like she's only in it to be eye candy, so I guess most of the blame needs to go to the writers.
In regards to the "racist" autobots, they were humorous, and make perfect sense when you consider that all the autobots learned how to speak here from the internet, so it stands to reason that some would learn ebonics.
Overall I say go see this in IMAX while you can, it's an awesome experience.
Thanks and happy viewings.
This movie turned out to be much better than I was expecting. The humor was drawing laugh out loud
moments from the adults and children alike in the audience. The action was very intense for a Disney animated feature film. Last but not least, Ed Asner achieved sheer perfection with his voice acting as Carl Fredrickson, the grumpy old man. Jordan Nagai was also terrific in his first acting role, as the Wilderness Explorer, Russel.
All in all, I'd say go see this movie while you can in 3D, the kids'll love it and if you don't have kids, go see it anyway because it's a truly fantastic folm for all ages. If Bolt is any indication, don't expect for the 3D version of this film to be available on DVD/Blu-Ray when it's released, meaning theater showings may be you're only chance to see this great film in the stunning 3D format.
Thanks and happy viewings.
I'd been waiting for some time for Part one to come out around here, and I wasn't disappointed. As
some other reviews have mentioned, it is a nice mix of a documentary feel, and an action feel. The best such combination I've seen since Flags of our Fathers.
Terrific acting all around, a realistic portrayal, and a very controversial storyline come together in terrific fashion to make a great movie. Seems to be a very unbiased portrayal of the mindset of Che and Fidel, in their grand ideals of a free Cuba.
After seeing the steady flow of Che Part One, along with the great script, visuals and acting, I am very exciting and very much looking forward to Che Part Two, whenever it may be coming out. However long it takes, even if I must wait for a DVD release, I will do so happily. Che Part One is just that good.
I highly recommend it if you can find it at a theater near you. If not, wait for the DVD/BR release and you are unlikely to be disappointed.
Thanks, and happy watchings.
