Moulin Rouge

7.0
I guess I can`t call myself particulary interested in musicals. And I have my reasons for that: first, the music is usually quite cheeky and the singing - awful. Second, the storyline of the average musical is not more complicated than that of a Swedish porn movie. And last but not least I think that adoring musicals shows the person`s bad taste. Then why did I watch this one? Because I was told that it was good. I did have my doubts though - Nicole Kidman as the leading actress is a good thing for sure, but what else could a film about a French sluthouse offer? Ok, I know that the red Mill wasn`t exactly a sluthouse, but basically it still was. Now come to think about the film. The story is stilly quite simple - a young writer from Switzerland comes to Paris and falls in love with the best courtisane of Moulin Rouge. And she falls in love with him. But a rich duke who invests loads of money into Moulin Rouge also craves her, and it brings up the problems. The plot as such can`t score big points for the film. But as for the music - it rocks! Could you imagine a cabaret in early 1900s the people sing "Here we are now - entertain us" or a dude who apparantly has written "The One" by Elton John. Or a performance of "Roxanne" (The Police)? It`s totally cool, although I still prefer the original versions, but this surely is one weird musical.

Lai arī pēc idejas Oskaru sezonā vajadzētu sanākt, ka es skatītos vienu labu filmu pēc otras, reāli sanāk, ka šīm balvām nominēto filmu vidū iezogas ne viens vien kino darbs, kas manā uztverē par labu nekādi nav nosaucams. It īpaši tas, protams, attiecas uz "kreiso" kategoriju filmām, un viena no tām ir Baza Lūrmena "Austrālija".

The Great Gatsby

8.0
Pēdējā laikā visai bieži ir novērots, ka neilgi pēc tam, kad esmu izlasījis kādu grāmatu, tā iznāk arī filmas veidā. Iespējams, visu laiku populārākais amerikāņu romāns "Lielais Getsbijs" perfekti atbilst šim principam. Grāmatu izlasīju aprīļa sākumā, bet filma pasaules pirmizrādi piedzīvoja 10.maijā.
