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'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.
I went mainly because I saw Stephen Colbert was the voice of the President(hopefully an omen for
2012) but was expecting little more then a kiddy film. Boy were my expectations low, it had a good mix of humor that adults and children alike could enjoy. There were scenes that kids were laughing out loud at because of the humor, while subtle(somewhat) references to older events that adults are infinitely more likely to get/understand.
It also had a good steady pace for the storytelling with a clear beginning, middle, and end that doesn't seem to happen as often as should in movies nowadays.
The voice acting was very solid, the CG was excellent and the story was good.
All in all, I'd have to say to go see this movie in 3D soon. If you have kids, they'll love it. If you don't, that's fine. Don't be afraid to go alone, thankfully the stigma of not being able to go to a "cartoon" without a kid as an excuse is slowly but surely dissolving.
Thanks, and happy watchings.
I've never read the graphic novel, so I only knew a little bit about the story line. From the
publicity I was expecting a fantastic movie, and was not disappointed in the least. This turned out to be just the latest in extremely incredible and amazing super hero movies to come out recently.
I'd say this easily ranks with among the best overall movies I've ever seen. The only thing I can really potentially knock it on is that this may have been better off as a two parter, with both movies being about two hours, instead of one movie at two hours and forty three minutes. Regardless, the pace was good, and I will most definitely be buying the special edition when it comes out on DVD, I don't have a BR player.
From the solid character development, to the incredible portayals by the actors, to the special effects and everything else, this movie should not be missed by anyone. Only major heads up I'll give is if you have kids, there are lots of full frontal scenes of Dr. Manhattan
