Adventures of Power (2008)
amazing comedy.... can't wait!!!!
I saw this film when my acting class was invited to give comments at a test screening. I loved it, it is hilarious and very touching movie. It reminds me of The Full Monty (English film) but more weird and more for kids or people my age. There is a lot of music in it, it's almost like a musical, but nobody sings fortunately.
It was fun to see some new faces and also some you know (yes, Vince from Entourage is in it, but he is totally different, he is actually very funny!). I don't like American comedies so much but this one is much better, because you care about these crazy characters and their American dream.
I can't wait to see it again when it comes out. I think they are editing a few things but i hope they don't change too much.
My guy friends liked it a lot because it's sort of like a sports movie at times, but I was more into the message and the love story, but that's just me....!
Eagle vs Shark (2007)
Maybe they made this movie in New Zealand before anyone saw Napoleon Dynamite, or had cars or something. But it felt late and boring and you have to wonder why they made it.
It was cute but that gets old very fast. You don't know why these characters are so silly and pretty soon you don't care. It had some funny moments from time to time and was never stupid but you get kind of bored. And it really seemed to imitate Napoleon Dynamite.
Some of the costumes are funny and I like deadpan humor. There were some scenes that were good that way, but in the end it is not enough.
I think there can be more movies from this director but maybe the story will be better, and they will no that you have to make the story bigger.
Das Leben der Anderen (2006)
over-rated but nice drama
I am happy for the German film business which is doing better and better, and Americans like this movie even though it's not about Hitler! But I think it is a bit too sentimental. It tells a touching story, but of course it takes the story of a Stasi who is really "good on the inside." But I would rather see a movie about the truth, about how the stasi was mostly not so moral. But I guess it's nice for people to see, because they think that if they were in his shoes, they would also be "nice." But the movie never really explains why he decides to be a good person, so it's just "boring guy is a good guy"...
I think it is better in subtitles, because in German it felt sort of obvious, but when you read subtitles you think it must mean more!
Happy Feet (2006)
i wanted to like it!
I wanted to like this because I love George Miller, and I think the movie has a good message, except I don't really know for sure what is the message! Save the fish? I agree that the ocean is being overfished but I don't know how that is related to dancing....
I love musicals and dancing in movies, maybe I didn't like this because they would always play 12 songs for one dance, instead of letting one song be good! I like it but I prefer "Babe", and it's not because I like pigs better.
It did make me want to go to Antarctica so maybe that is a good thing. My brother went there for studies and said it looks just like that.
