What's Next On My List? Maleficent

This was an interesting movie, and I had to watch it for a class, again, sorry, all of my good reviews come from movies that I had as homeworks. But I am happy about that, a lot of things come our way without us expecting it and it is a pleasure when they do.

It is the story of why, the evil queen Maleficent, has decided to put a curse on Aurora after she was born. This story also shows that perhaps what lies in the shadows is not always evil, and how something that is apparent to the eyes can be misleading. Ultimately, it is a story of the meaning of a true love's kiss.

I still cannot decide what I think about this movie and there are two reasons for that. One, Disney has decided to force onto us the need to explain why villains are not really villains, when turning cartoons into live action movies, but they are doing a terrible job at it. This movie was the exception, however, by explaining why she is not really evil, they created a new antagonist. There is no story without someone being the bad guy, and that is also a lesson in itself. However, I don't necessarily like that Disney feels the need to explain why someone is bad... honestly, when I was a kid, the lesson that some people are just bad, and that bad things do just happen is a very hard lesson, but it prepared you for life. I am fine with the idea that there are two sides to every coin, but if you don't really think it through, eg. Cinderella, then there is no reason to force it onto anyone.
Second, I am proud of this movie, because it decided to add a very strong metaphor for rape and did not back down. What Maleficent had to endure... It is no surprise that she wished for revenge, and even then, she did so without ever actually hurting someone. The evil woman ends up being the savior too, which is truly the mark of good writing: they knew the source material and they made it contemporary too, questions that again, some other live action remakes failed at terribly. So you see, I do find this to be a remarkable movie, but it is alone in its kind, because the villain business is not necessarily easy to explain. That said, my only major concern was not understanding why the fairies who looked over Aurora had to be idiots for Maleficent to fool them... there was no need for that. And the King's accent was completely over the top...

Watch it? I recommend it. It is one of those rare movies that holds up on its own, despite being a sort of remake and prequel. I did not care for the new villain, but there is a lesson there too. I hope that this will make them do good iterations, and if not, leave the villain for what it is: a good antagonist.

Until the next item on my list!

What's Next On My List? Murder On The Orient Express

Last summer I got an ebook reader for my birthday and the first thing I read on it was Agatha Christie's classic novel. Gotta say, it hit hard. I loved every second of it, read it in one day too. I could not wait to see it on the big screen with this wonderful cast.

The ultimate story of crime not being black and white: there are two sides to every coin. Hercule Poirot stumbles onto the conspiracy of a life time within a closed door murder where everyone and no one looks guilty. This becomes the toughest mission for the detective, as he has to question his own moral choices.

I decided to read this book because of the teaser for this movie. I just had to know how it was written in order to see how good a job Branagh did bringing to life the script. I have to say, I always forget what a wonderful director this man is - and he is a great actor. The cinematography of this movie is simply breathtaking. The story alone takes you with it, as it showcases that one death can have a ripple effect, and it is not just one person who is effected. Moreover, Poirot's approach to a crime has always been black and white: murder is a no go, and there are no excuses for it. This story teaches him one very important lesson: there really are two sides to every story. I loved the book when I've read it and I already started thinking about the layers of morality it touches upon, and me and my sister had the same talk after seeing the movie. One you lose someone, you break a bit, and the people that care about you? They break too, and so on. The outsider in this story, Poirot, is, however, filled with compassion and care, and he is no blind to the tragedy that preceded this murder. I do not wish to spoil more of the story for those who have not seen or read it yet, I just wanted to make sure I get you all interested, because it is more than a simple crime story.

Watch it? Please do. If you know the book, you will be very appreciative of the accuracy of how it was brought to life. If you don't know it, then you'll have your jaws dropped all the way through as you uncover the truth behind this murder. Either way you look at it, as far as crime stories are concerned, this is a 10/10.

Until the next item on my list!

What's Next On My List? The Greatest Showman

Been putting this off, mostly because I did not have money to see it when it came out, but my sister brought it up, and I felt that I should check it off my list finally.

A young boy who came from nothing, decided to make the best of his life and make all his dreams come true, and give the life he promised to his beloved and his two girls. The way he does it is quite unconventional at the time, as he opens his own circus with people who are mocked for their strangeness. He finds himself distant from what really matters, only to find himself back when it is most important!

"Hyperbole isn't the worst crime. 
Men suffer more from imagining too little than too much."

Right off the bat, I need to admit that I do not give two shits about the bad criticism this movie might have received. I am just sooooo done with people who are unable to appreciate musicals. You don't like music? Bye. You don't understand if something is inspired by true events as opposed to being a reflection of them? Your problem. Stop trying to be critical just for the sake of criticism! I am sure that more people liked it then they would dare to admit. Did you like this movie? Good for you! Embrace it! Sing the songs, dance to the beat, enjoy a story for nothing more than it being a good story.
Do I have criticism? Sure, but it was more technical. See, even if I know that this was not reality, that this guy was indeed an a-hole who abused of others... I do not want to see that story. Do you? Go watch a documentary then. Everything else in Hollywood has to have some sort of moral message and this movie went with "family is more important than work" and I was okay with that. Not to mention, I find that is a message still too many have not managed to learn. I did not understand why the dwarf was not played by one, and in some scenes Michelle Williams was clearly wearing a wig, see? Technical issues. But I always prefer musicals that were made for movies, because you can tell that the choreographer and the director have an eye for it (that is right, f*ck Les Misérables and its stupid sound stage and fish-eyed lens...). The scene where Barnum convinces Carlyle to join him? That dance scene in the bar was fantastic.
"- You want people to laugh at me.
- Well they're laughing anyway, kid, so you might as well get paid."

Watch it? Definitely. Me, as a musical lover, have been told off several times for not having seen it yet, but not anymore!!! I know that there are inaccuracies, but someone was indeed the first to pick people who were shit on by society and showcased that their strangeness is to be celebrated instead of laughed at. The real one might have done it differently, but this is still a pretty damn good story.

Until the next item on my list!

What's Next On My List? Galaxy Quest

Last semester this movie resurfaced in one of my courses, as an introduction to fandom and popular culture. Gotta admit, I could re-watch this movie a hundred times!

The actors of a famous sci-fi show get rolled into an outer-space mission by aliens who have the belief that they and their show was real all along. Once out there they become the heroes they were playing all along all on their own merit and they learn to appreciate all the fans that look up to the them and the world they helped to create.

I loved this movie, not just for the cast, as I had seen it by the time everyone in it was famous and well known for several other projects. And well, gotta say, it was originally because of the cast that I decided to watch it in the first place. I adore movies that have serious actors in them, showcasing they are equally good at comedy, that includes of course Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman. I miss him a whole lot, but I'm glad there is such a variety of things that I can choose from if I wish to see him on screen again. As far as the movie is concerned, I am delighted every time I see it. It is funny, smart, sad at times, I mean, I caught a few tears here and there when I watched it, and I also find it to be for every single audience out there: the outsiders, the inner geek in you, in all of us, the truth of comic conventions, fans, hardcore fans, sci-fi addicts and many more. The movie shows how some actors do become the role that they are playing. I recommend this movie to everyone who likes to see all sides of a story (let that be on either side of the fourth wall!).

Watch it? I am almost certain you already have! So go see it again and rejoice in one of the best sci-fi movies out there!

Until the next item on my list!
