Harry W (ru) wrote: I went into Johnny Stecchino with my standard for Roberto Benigni set at La Vita e Bella (Life is Beautiful), a film i deemed to be the greatest italian film of all time and one of the greatest films in existence. So of course to a certain extent I was disappointed.But mainly it was just that I wasn't that enthralled by Johnny Stecchino since it was heavy on a senseless plot but light on laughs. To break it down, first of all the amount of dynamics in the life of the mine character Dante are a large quantity, and keeping up with them proves challenging. But it seems to be too good for Johnny Stecchino's own good, because the characters are too complicated to fit into the story and their intentions as well as dynamics are overly complicated underneath a thin plot revolving around a case of mistaken identity.The pacing in the story is constantly unbalanced, as is the character development so I'm never exactly sure when the comedy is coming in to take place, but since it isn't set up too well and isn't shockingly hilarious enough to overshadow the lack of buildup, I didn't find myself laughing too much in Johnny Stecchino. And I think part of that was because since the characters weren't that great, their delivery of the comedic messages lose power as they become turned into subtitles for international audiences. I guess really the main problem is that the main character Dante is a dull one, and so he relies on the world to create comedic dynamics for him which doesn't happen enough to suffice entertainment at a consistent rate, or much at all. The plot just isn't one I deemed worth following, and the script doesn't really provide many reasons why you should.But considering that Johnny Stecchino is clearly a low-budget film, it does make a decent achievement in terms of being a technical success with decent music and cinematography.And Roberto Benigni does have some good moments with his skill for line delivery and physicality, as well as being in the role of two different characters.Nicoletta Braschi also does well even though she gets the most confusing and weak lines in the script, and her character takes full advantage of her charms as an actress.But despite Roberto Benigni's best efforts, I found Johnny Stechinno to be overly long, slow, poorly plotted and not consist with humour.

Ze B (fr) wrote: Iron Man is an above average comic book movie. I don't know if that's saying much. I enjoy it for what it is. It's a fun movie if you have a home theater system and sludge if you don't.The plot is full of holes, and the action bits are bland compared to what has been seen of the character in past comics and cartoons. It's hard to cheer much for Iron Man when everything comes so easy for him, he's just not a very likable or believable character. And that might be what's most wrong with Iron Man.In looking back at this film one can't help but not the sequels that came after and all the casting drama that followed. This film feels childish, like it came out in the 90's. We have a setup of the origin of Iron Man, but what really needed was a setup story of Tony Stark first. We jump right in and he has no troubles really in the world. He has no real conflict or struggles. Even later his brilliant engineering skills just seem to come out of now where. It does not make him feel human.The characters in this movie are very bland. Who do you connect with? The only ones that have a shred of connection are the terrorists and Shaun Toub as Yinsen. I think kids like Iron Man because of the tech he has. Or the attraction of dancing strippers of his own plane. But it's so shallow, we don't care collectively about Tony Stark at all.Then when you throw on the super suit, he's lost even more.Like I said earlier it's a fun, turn your brain off for 2 hours kind of movie. The main villain is so predictable and out of place. What a waste of Jeff Freakin Bridges! So much more could come out of it and the sequels improve on this but this first flight of Iron Man is just that a comic book movie for all the pains and praise that might bring. Crank up that sound system baby!Best Actor : Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper PottsThe obvious choice would be to pick Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. But really he's just playing himself. Or his onscreen persona much like Matthew Mcconaughey does in Mcconaughey things. Like bad car commercials.Gwyneth Paltrow has some character to her, we learn things about her. She changes in the way she things about Tony Stark, well at least a little. The other characters in the movie don't change at all, they just do different things, that's not character development.Paltrow has an innocent quality and seems to glow on the screen. She's fun to watch. I wish she had more to do in the film. It's a shame she pretty much got axed out of the series.Worst Actor: Terrence Howard as James "Rhodey" RhodesIt's no wonder why he was re-cast in the second film. Spewing out bad military one-liners and flag waving propaganda is really not that hard. Anybody on Fox News does it every day. So why is watching him in this film so ear bleeding bad? We care nothing about him at all to boot.Best Scene: Big Robot BattleThe lead up is the big battle at the end. And while it's fun, it's not really epic and kind of predictable. The fact that Obadiah could build a more improved suit and bigger than Iron Man in a short amount of time.What seemed like mere hours in movie time is ridiculous. While we get the idea that Stark's company is huge, like Wal-Mart in scale. He builds the robot at the main plant right? How could Tony not know about it or how could they figure out how to do that. Lame.The most interesting character scenes are when Obadiah comes in and paralyses Tony with some weird Men in Black device. I think he steals something from him. I forgot. It's not important. Well Obadiah clearly wanted Tony dead and just like 5 minutes later tries to kill him in the suit, so why not just kill him right there on the couch. Ugh. Worse plot hole than a James Bond Villain.Again Potts sneaks into Stark to steal plans or research and confronts Obadiah. This is a fun scene, you don't know what's going to happen. But he lets her go. Again, idiot. No wonder you are second in command. Bridges' character really needed a makeover and bigger motivation than greed.Worst Scene : Desert Base BuildingThe idea that Stark could build an iron man suit in a cave in the middle of the desert under the cameras and watch of terrorists is absolutely crazy. At least take your audience out of the movie at the one hour mark not 10 minutes in.Even then we are not seeing Stark struggle with how to do this or planning it out. We are following the events through the terrorist eyes, not Stark. Well, the terrorist's names are not on the movie title. Just dumb slog.ImprovementsI like to talk about how I would improve the movies I watch but this film has too many things to list. I would be here for hours. My brain hurts just thinking about it. Just turn the surround sound up and enjoy the movie. Pass the salt.Hits Cool action bits Jeff Freakin Bridges! Iron Man on screen for the first time.Misses Obligatory Iron Man Black Sabbath Song at the end. More plot holes than there are stars in our galaxy. Flat one sided characters we care nothing about.Rating: D

Yaphet Kotto had the best lines, Carl Weathers was badass, Pam Grier... Already been said, and Thalmus Rahsulala... Well, with a name like that, you know there's fun. What brings this down is a lack of exploitation. Instead we get a black Serpico. Blackerco, or something.
