(fr) wrote: At first I really loved this movie, and I still like it, but not as much as I did before. I suppose I let my love for Disney prevent me from thinking less of it. Now, as I've stated, I still do really enjoy this movie. I still love the animation, I still enjoy the comedy, I still enjoy the two main characters, mostly Baymax, and it has a lot of heart, However, the predictable and cliched nature of the narrative bothers me a little more than before. It just doesn't deliver what you'd expect from a combination of Disney and Marvel. It's not a bad story or anything, but it just didn't seem that the writers really tried to tell a unique and compelling story. It borrows elements from both Disney and superhero films, and again, it's so predictable. The other problem that bothers me more is the side characters, Honey Lemon, Wasabi, GoGo and Fred. I just don't find them really interesting. They're all just one-dimensional. They deliver some nice laughs and their designs are great, and their powers are cool, but as actual characters they just don't deliver. I don't hate them, but they don't have much development, and I don't even really think Hiro is one of Disney's most interesting protagonists, but I still like him. I guess this is why superhero team movies don't always work, because there are too many characters to focus on. A film like The Avengers works because the characters all had their own films, so when they come together, it's more believable. Even The Incredibles works better because we see them interact and work off each other. The only characters that have development in their relationship in Big Hero 6 are Hiro and Baymax. The relationship between them is honestly a lot more engaging than anything superhero-related. The film, like I said, is pretty predictable. The villain isn't very surprising. The action scenes are fun, but they don't pull me in like the action in The Incredibles. I just wish the film had a better story and better side characters, especially since it's based on an obscure Marvel property. I also liked Tadashi, but I wish he was in the film longer. His death didn't have much of an impact. I was sad, and I liked him and Hiro's relationship, but still. It would've been great if the film started off with them as children. Heck, it would've been great if all of the characters, except Baymax, were young. We could see Hiro and Tadashi's childhood, perhaps show how their parents died, see their reactions. Maybe show Hiro and Tadashi bonding, have them meet the rest of the characters, form a strong circle of friends. Then have them all grow up together and go to school. Then it could cut to years later with Tadashi going to college with Honey Lemon, Wasabi, GoGo and Fred while Hiro does illegal robot fights and stuff, and proceed from there. Wouldn't that have been so much better? I mean, the film is based on a very obscure Marvel property, so they were free to do pretty much anything they want, but I guess copyright issues got in the way. I read what happens in the comics and it's a lot more interesting than what happens in this movie. I really felt that the film played it too safe. I wish it had a little more edge too it. Superhero movies have been making lots of progress lately with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I wish this movie was a little more like their movies. I'm aware that this film is more kid-friendly, but I'm sure a lot of kids love these Marvel movies, which are over two hours long, and Disney's gone to dark, uncomfortable places before, so why couldn't this? I also really wanted to see more of San Fransokyo. Blending San Francisco and Tokyo together was a genius idea, but all the beauty of the city is mostly shown from a broad view. We don't actually get see what's inside and explore. So yeah, I don't love the film as much as I did before. However, that doesn't mean that I don't like it. I'm very forgiving, and I still think it's a nice, entertaining film. I love the animation. I like Hiro and Baymax, their relationship, the comedy, and the heart. I also still love the moral about the importance of emotional support in one's time of need, which I hold to a high regard. So, in the end, I still like Big Hero 6, just not as much as I used to. Despite the many issues I have with it, I still think it's an enjoyable movie. Not good, not bad, just all right. Not Disney's best, but a nice and fun family film that's a nice addition to the Disney Canon.

(gb) wrote: From horror "auteur" Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), The Roost is an early effort that hints towards West's skill but never manages to completely deliver on it in a satisfactory fashion. Already, West demonstrates a love of the horror genre and attempts to create an intelligent, meta-horror film that blends elements of animal horror and zombie films. And it features a few genuinely creepy moments along the way and some awesome shots, but overall the film just drags from beginning to end. An example of a stylish director beginning to play with his medium, The Roost is not a good film but it hints towards the possibility of the good films to come.

(de) wrote: Where Birdman was a stunning character study built around the incredible single shot trick and The Revenant formed a sweeping, politically charged epic built around the exceptional method acting of Leonardo DiCaprio, Amores Perros falls somewhere in the unformed middle, clearly marking itself as an early work of an incredible but still emerging director. Irritu had not mastered (or chose not to use) the single take approach here and so that is conspicuously absent in a film where at times, it feels almost necessary. Absent as well is the exceptional (and expensive) camera work of The Revenant, with Amores Perros grounding itself in low budget shots that work for the most part but can occasionally be too choppy, too grimy, or simply too poorly done even for the film's arthouse tastes. Irritu's storyboarding also falls short of his work with Birdman, although this may reflect his greater involvement with the writing of that later film. Although the first and last storyline of the film are powerful, the central sequence feels underwhelming, both in importance and connection to the other characters, despite moving performances from the actors involved. It's a letdown quickly solved in the third act but it's also another hour added onto what is already an overly long film, another issue that Irritu would address with later films by tidying up the narratives (Birdman runs at only 119 minutes) or engaging the audience more effectively throughout (The Revenant as a case in point). However despite all of this, Amores Perros is a fantastically engaging character study, in the tradition of Tarantino. It's also a film that shares a stylistic structure with films like Requiem for a Dream and Crash but as regretful Oscar voters can likely attest to, Amores Perros will probably give you a better feel for that style then those other two atrocities ever will. It's impressive because despite seeming like a television episode needing several more seasons (this is apparently part of a loosely connected trilogy, although the fact that the other two films start mostly white actors seems to strike against what made this film interesting for me), Amores Perros manages, for the most part, to keep you engaged on its own terms, despite not really having much of a significant resolution, climax, or narrative goal. Everything has small endings certainly but since the film is part of a larger story, most is left unfinished but remarkably, doesn't lose engagement. Most importantly however, Irritu showcases, for the first time, his incredible affinity for human emotion and drama along with the beginnings of the unique storytelling abilities that would catapult him to the Academy's highest honors with Birdman. Although Amores Perros is certainly the seeds of better works and will not be for everyone, for those film fans looking to engage with one of Hollywood's best living directors and his filmmaking roots, this movie is his actual start and it's a good one.
