Ieri, seppur controvoglia, mi sono ritrovato a passare tutto il pomeriggio in università. Gli esami si avvicinano (ne dovrò dare tre tra Giugno e Luglio) ed è ora di cominciare ad aumentare il carico di lavoro e di studio (anche se i medici mi hanno consigliato di riposare perchè non mi vengano di nuovo attacchi come quelli di due settimane fa… peccato non possa farlo…).

Anche se ero molto stanco, ho scelto di vedermi comunque qualcosa ieri sera. La scelta è ricaduta su Bubba Ho-Tep, strano ed originale B-Movie di due anni fa, diretto da Don Coscarelli, regista noto per un discreto horror di metà anni ‘80, Phantasm, che i cultori del genere dovrebbero conoscere. La storia di Bubba Ho-Tep ha come protagonista un invecchiato Elvis Presley (interpretato da un superbo Bruce Campbell, Ash di La Casa, per intenderci) che, dopo essersi fatto sostituire anni prima da un imitatore, è ancora vivo e passa i suoi giorni in una casa di riposo. Quando una malvagia entità di origine Egizia inizia a far fuori tutti gli ospiti della piccola casa di riposo, Elvis, aiutato da un vecchio nero che dice di essere John Fitzgerald Kennedy (se dicevo che il film era originale, un motivo c’era… ) decide di alzarsi dal letto e mettersi a combattere per evitare altre morti. Peccato che, secondo me, oltre alla favolosa sceneggiatura e a Bruce Campbell, il film non sia poi questo granchè. Sarà che tendo a non sopportare questo genere, sarà che si nota troppo l’atmosfera da B-Movie, però a me Bubba Ho-Tep non è proprio piaciuto. Se mai uscirà anche qui, però, dategli un’occhiata; non si sa mai che possa diventare, per voi, un piccolo cult movie…

24 continua, ma mi è molto difficile fare commenti perchè altrimenti spoilererei troppo. Per cui, aspetterò la fine di questa terza serie, visto che mancano solo quattro episodi, per dare un bel giudizio finale. Ringraziatemi perchè non voglio anticiparvi nulla, se la state vedendo…

Partita dell’Italia ieri sera, quindi ho preferito optare per quella al posto dell’usuale visione cinematografica. Prima di cena, però, ho voluto vedere una cosa che avevo recuperato negli scorsi giorni, l’episodio pilota (la versione inedita, quella non mostrata in televisione) di Tru Calling, serie TV in onda dallo scorso Ottobre negli Stati Uniti che, a quel che si legge in giro, non avrà una seconda stagione. Ed è facile capire perchè. La storia ricorda molto quella di un noto e bellissimo film con Bill Murray, ossia Ricomincio da Capo, anche se in versione thriller; la protagonista, Tru Davies (interpretata da Eliza Dushku, vista in Buffy e True Lies) è una giovane laureata in medicina che trova lavoro in un obitorio e che scopre di poter rivivere gli eventi delle ultime ore, impedire la morte delle persone che le arrivano sul "posto di lavoro" e di cambiare così il corso della storia. Un plot che sa di minestra riscaldata e che, da quel che ho potuto vedere in questo episodio pilota, sarà in grado di reggere solo per qualche puntata, almeno secondo me. Cercherò di recuperare anche gli episodi successivi, ma non presagisco nulla di buono…

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights è il nulla cinematografico. Il tipico esempio di "sequel" (le virgolette sono volute) che non ha nulla a che fare con l’originale, a parte il ridicolo cameo di Patrick Swayze e la tematica di fondo, quella del ballo e della danza come strumento per uscire fuori dagli schemi, per scoprire nuove cose. Questa volta, il film è ambientato nel passato, nella Cuba di Batista e la storia è quella di una ragazza americana, figlia di genitori molto benestanti, che scopre l’amore e la ribellione grazie all’aiuto di un giovane cubano, ovviamente di condizione sociale totalmente opposta. E’ facile capire che la sceneggiatura è un’accozzaglia di clichè, di situazioni di una prevedibilità clamorosa, tanto che non si vede l’ora che arrivino i titoli di coda (e il film dura pure poco, meno di un’ora e mezza). In questo nulla totale, due note positive almeno ci sono: la protagonista Romola Garai, giovane attrice 22enne inglese dimostra di avere buone qualità recitative (oltre ad un decollete piuttosto importante, ma questo è un altro discorso… ); poi c’è la colonna sonora, dallo stile molto "latino", che avevo già avuto modo di apprezzare in separata sede (con pezzi di Santana, Black Eyed Peas, Yerba Buena, Wyclef Jean, Christina Aguilera e molti altri), basilare in un film di questo tipo. Si tratta comunque, se non si era capito del classico "date movie", un film da andare a vedere con la propria fidanzata o morosa, anche se io ve lo sconsiglio totalmente (sinceramente, se potessi, preferirei fare altro, comunque, de gustibus… ).

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton è la classica commedia romantica americana. Dal trailer avevo sperato in una maggiore originalità, ma il risultato finale mi ha deluso. Il film, comunque, si lascia guardare, grazie ad una trama molto semplice che fila via tranquilla ed alla simpatia della protagonista, una radiosa e bellissima Kate Bosworth, per cui prevedo un grande futuro nel firmamento di Hollywood. Per il resto, all’antipatia che ispirano i due protagonisti maschili, il quasi debuttante Josh Duhamel e Topher Grace (visto in Traffic), riescono a far da contraltare altri due personaggi, quelli interpretati da Nathan Lane e Sean Hayes (il Jack di Will & Grace), che rubano letteralmente la scena quando appaiono. La regia di Robert Luketic non è male, e lo stesso si può dire di tutta la parte tecnica del film, però per il resto, non c’è nulla di nuovo sotto il sole. Visto che sia questo che Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights usciranno nelle sale italiane nello stesso periodo, all’inizio dell’Estate, se proprio dovete andare a vedervi qualcosa con la vostra compagna, è decisamente meglio questo, almeno secondo me…

Girato nel 2001, ma uscito solamente in pochissimi paesi al mondo, Prozac Nation è un film che poteva essere molto meglio di quello che, alla fine, è stato il risultato finale. Basato sul celebre libro di Elizabeth Wurtzel, il secondo film diretto dal norvegese Erik Skjoldbjærg (la versione originale di Insomnia, del 1997, è stata la sua opera prima), è la storia dei problemi di depressione, durante il primo anno al college, di una giovane e promettente scrittrice, e del suo "attaccamento" al terribile medicinale, che le causerà maggiori problemi in tutte le relazioni, sia con la famiglia che con gli amici. Un film che ho trovato decisamente ben recitato da tutto il cast, dalla protagonista Christina Ricci, che interpreta la Wurtzel, ad una bravissima Jessica Lange, nel ruolo di una madre nevrotica ma allo stesso tempo molto legata alla figlia; da Jonathan Rhys-Meyers ad Anne Heche, passando per Jason Biggs e Michelle Williams. Peccato che sia la regia scarna e priva di idee di Skjoldbjærg (l’impressione che il giovane regista abbia dimenticato tutto ciò che aveva mostrato di buono ai tempi di Insomnia) che la sceneggiatura piuttosto banale, rendano Prozac Nation un’opera poco riuscita che poteva essere sicuramente molto meglio. Rimane da chiedersi, comunque, perchè un film con tutti questi grandi nomi, pur non essendo proprio il massimo della vita, non sia uscito nemmeno negli USA. Misteri della distribuzione…

Anche The Reckoning è un film che ha subito una sorte molto simile a Prozac Nation. Girata due anni fa da Paul McGuigan, il regista dell’ottimo Gangster N°1, anche questa pellicola si è vista in pochissimi paesi (negli USA, comunque, è uscita, anche se solo in pochissime sale). Il cast non è certo di secondo ordine, visto che tra gli interpreti possiamo trovare Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind), Willem Dafoe, Brian Cox (X-Men 2) e Vincent Cassel, che se la cavano alla grande. Il problema di questo thriller ambientato nel Medioevo inglese sta nella storia che, pur avendo qualche spunto interessante, risulta piuttosto prevedibile ed ovvia man mano che ci si avvicina alla fine. Lo stesso si può dire della regia, purtroppo non particolarmente ispirata. Il film, comunque, non annoia ed è apprezzabile, oltre che per l’ottima recitazione dell’intero cast, sia per la ricostruzione storica che per la fotografia di Peter Sova, già collaboratore del regista inglese nel suo precedente film e nel nuovo, intitolato Wicker Park, remake del francese L’Appartamento (film con Cassel e la Bellucci di qualche anno fa). Se vi piacciono i film ad ambientazione storica, se mai The Reckoning dovesse uscire anche qui da noi, una visione se la può meritare…

Su Apocalypse Now ci sono poche parole da spendere. Questo è uno di quei capolavori che sono entrati nella storia del cinema e bisogna limitarsi a considerarli come tali, senza fare ulteriori commenti. Un film talmente voluto da Francis Ford Coppola, la cui lavorazione è durata tre anni ed è stata costellata da una tale serie di imprevisti da far entrare il lavoro del regista italo-americano nel mito prima ancora dell’uscita del film. Venne anche realizzato un documentario, uscito anche qui da noi al cinema all’inizio degli anni ‘90 ed intitolato Viaggio all’Inferno, diretto dalla moglie di Coppola, che purtroppo non ho mai potuto vedere e sto disperatamente cercando di recuperare. Tornando ad Apocalypse Now, mi rammarico che per un film del genere non sia mai stata realizzata un’edizione DVD come si deve, visto che sia l’attuale edizione BIM che quella vecchia targata Paramount fanno veramente pena dal punto di vista degli extra. La versione Redux è un caso a parte, sia come film (è uno di quei rari casi in cui prediligo la versione cinematografica al Director’s Cut, visto che le nuove scene non aggiungono nulla di nuovo e sono, secondo me, abbastanza inutili) che come DVD. Si trova veramente a poco, anche con l’audio in Italiano (da www.play.com dovrebbe costare una decina di sterline), ma è da acquistare solo ed esclusivamente se l’avete preferita alla versione originale, cosa secondo me impossibile…

Da grande fan quale sono di Anthony Hopkins e del personaggio di Hannibal Lecter, non potevo far mancare dalla mia collezione DVD Red Dragon, il film diretto da Brett Ratner (Rush Hour 1 e 2), con Edward Norton e Ralph Fiennes, ispirato al primo romanzo che aveva come protagonista il perfido psichiatra cannibale, da cui era già stato tratto nel 1986 Manhunter, il film di Michael Mann in cui il personaggio era interpretato dallo scozzese Brian Cox (Stryker di X-Men 2). L’ho trovato in offerta a 11.90 € e quindi, a questo prezzo, non potevo più farmelo scappare, considerando che si tratta di una bella edizione a due dischi. Tornando a parlare del film, devo dire di avere apprezzato molto più Red Dragon di Manhunter: sarà per la presenza di Hopkins, sarà perchè il cast è composto da attori molto più bravi (a mio avviso) di quelli dell’originale, da Norton a Fiennes, da Emily Watson ad Harvey Keitel, da Philip Seymour Hoffman a Mary Louise Parker, sarà per la stupenda colonna sonora di Danny Elfman, sarà per i continui riferimenti a quello che io ritengo il secondo miglior film di sempre (ovvero Il Silenzio degli Innocenti), e così via. A parte la regia di Ratner, che purtroppo trovo inferiore a quella di Michael Mann, Red Dragon risulta essere un thriller psicologico veramente bello e ricco di suspense e tensione, decisamente superiore all’originale. Parlando del DVD, come ho già accennato prima, si tratta di un’edizione a due dischi dotata di un video ottimo, di un audio potentissimo anche se solo in Dolby Digital 5.1 e di un bel po’ di extra, tra cui diverse scene eliminate ed un diario di produzione veramente interessante.
