An improvement over Bad Boys the first, where action has been added to idiocy. Could I dream by expecting a Bad Boys III with the action and without the idiocy?

Wednesday 25 April 2012 AD

The lack of criticism towards Kubrick’s filmography in cinephiles’ circles is surprising me. 2001 opens to Zarathustra’s fanfare, hard cuts from a bone to a spaceship, has a 10-minutes scene where a spaceship penetrates another over The Blue Danube, and finally demoes the last psychedelic technique from the special effects department. Apparently Kubrick is some sort of god so he must be applauded for assembling such a pile of pompous crap.

Michael Bay (1998)

Wednesday 25 April 2012 AD

This movie, along with other examples like Speed (Speed is better, put your guns down), is an excellent action flick because 1/ It doesn’t itself seriously at all and 2/ His rhythm is upbeat and just never stops. It’s an uninterrupted flow of self-assumed idiocy and action. There is no dicking around. On the trivia side, they broadcast it on TV the other day, and I was surprised to found that the mid-movie advertisements contained a lot of products targeted to women. I assumed the film was targeted to a more testosterone-fueled audience. As it happens, after checking on its IMDb rating stats, I saw that the movie has a higher average rating from females viewers than from males viewers. It looks like Michael Bay, the man himself, with his Aerosmith romance between Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler, convinced not only boys, but even more effectively, girls. There is something spectacular in that.

It’s all fun and game until you realize the logic of the story is that the foolproof way to get a girl to fall for you is to punch the guy who is trying to rape her. This movie will be creepy in 20 years or less.
