Pretty quiet week for watching films as you can see. The ironic thing, I suppose, is the one I thought would be brilliant was far from it, and the one I assumed would be total garbage was pretty decent.
Three Stars – Lutz Hachmeister – 2010 – Netflix
A documentary following a number of chefs who have received the coveted Michelin 3 stars. The premise was very intriguing, however the whole project seemed very poorly executed. The film followed too many chef’s which made for a muddy and convoluted story line. And for a documentary set in the crazy fast pace of 3 star kitchens, it often fell flat and seemed to drag on. I would much rather watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi any day.
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters – Tommy Wirkola – 2013 – movie2K.to
I had a pretty intense weekend of shooting, and by Sunday afternoon I was pretty bagged. I napped like a sonoffagun, and thus was not remotely tired that evening. I had recently read an article stating that H and G wasn’t as awful as many had said, so I thought I’d check it out. I was pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong, it won’t change your life on anything, but as far as late night mindless entertainment goes it was pretty good. It maintains a very playful tone throughout and never takes itself too seriously. Mind you, the same director did Dead Snow about Zombie Nazis, so like you know, whatever.
