Scott T (ag) wrote: So-so 'comedy.' Not particularly funny but different and interesting movie. Martin Freeman plays a guy who is suffering a midlife crisis and is sleepwalking through life. He's amiable enough in it and Gwyneth Paltrow is good as his distant girlfriend. Martin Freeman's character starts having dreams about a model (played by Penelope Cruz) and he eventually discovers that the person who he dreams about is actually real. The movie goes on from there but doesn't go anywhere interesting really and the only thing that keeps the movie afloat are the performances. DeVito's (best thing I've seen him do in ages) group that discusses how to control dreams is decent, Simon Pegg is funny as Freeman's ex bandmate now boss (and is an absolute narcissistic idiot) and Penelope Cruz is simply stunning as the object of affection that the movie revolves around. There are some great dreamlike scenes and one liners but it could have been a lot better.

Mary B (de) wrote: An amazing emotionally challenging film that takes us through an odd journey of a deaf nine-year-old 'Frankie' (Jack McElhone) and his overprotective mother 'Lizzie' (Emily Mortimer) who makes ends meet to make her son happy. The narrative is cute as we hear the little boys voice through the words of his letters to his envisioned father.

Yoonki C (us) wrote: With Signs, M. Night Shyamalan proves himself once again that he is a master of building good suspense all through out the film. The thing about Signs that I noticed that are different than other alien invasion movies, is that Signs isn't just an alien invasion film. There are some hidden meanings, in which I probably did not fully get into my head. Signs mostly shows the perspective of one family struggling from family situations but also from the alien invasion that is about to occur. It has some amazing dialogue between each of the characters which kept my attention from a dialogue heavy film. As I said, it has a good suspense throughout the movie. It has a certain vibe that floats in the atmosphere that keeps our hands griping and sweaty. Like all M. Night's movies, it certainly has a twist which was highly effective to me. Although the suspense makes the film a thriller, there is a lot of dramatic scenes and conversations interacting with each characters and their family. That is a huge 'plus' to the movie. I felt that the film's hidden message was 'faith' between one another and believes. From the dramatic scenes, I really cared for all the characters to survive the alien invasion which led to a incredible suspenseful and very heart-felt finale. Overall, Signs is one of the best alien invasion I have ever scene and is a movie without almost no flaws.
Shane S (it) wrote: Roman Coppola's tribute to the campy films of Roger Corman (and several others who followed his example) and a tale about how a film editor learned to hone his own individuality and make pieces of art that not only were full of emotion, but also were kind of important in the long run, is kind of a blast. While most of the film is sort of a safe retread into the once-revolutionary ideas of Fellini, it's helped by some particularly nice acting, a script that not only has emotion but also has a good helping of comedy (well-fitting comedy too, not throwaway slapstick), and a pretty good case of snappy editing. I'd recommend it if you want to watch a good art film that doesn't take itself as the end-all-be-all of entertainment or the umpteenth morality piece by Gaspar Noe - revolutionary, but good revolutionary fun.Also, I liked the whole main character and Francis Ford Coppola parallels - with that in mind, this film becomes more of a celebration of Roman's dad finally getting away from Corman and making his own projects...most of them passion projects. You know, unlike that other guy who worked for American Zoetrope.

Kevin R (jp) wrote: I'm on vacation.A famous psychiatrist who has received national recognition for a book he wrote has taken on a new, unique patient, Bob that is hesitant to travel in cars, buses, planes, boats, etc. When the psychiatrist decides to take a vacation, Bob suffers some anxiety due to the separation and tracks the psychiatrist down. Meanwhile, the family of the psychiatrist is getting sick of the rigid nature of the doctor. Despite the psychiatrist's reservations, Bob joining the vacation may be what's best for both of them. "Maybe it's time for Bob to sing his way home."Frank Oz, director of The Dark Crystal, The Muppets Take Manhattan, Little Shop of Horrors, Housesitter, Bowfinger, The Score, Stepford Wives, and Death at a Funeral, delivers What About Bob. The storyline for this picture is ridiculous but fun in a Scrooged kind of way. The acting is perfect for the content and the cast includes Bill Murray, Richard Dreyfus, Julie Hagerty, Charlie Korsmo, and Kathryn Erbe."It feels right because you're here and it feels right because you're leaving."I watched this a million times on cable growing up (it was always on HBO) and recently came across this on Showtime Anytime and decided to give it a viewing for the first time in a long time. Overall, this is a nice addition to the comedy genre. It isn't perfect or an all time classic that needs to be in your DVD collection, but it is worth an occasional viewing and does have some repeat watching value."I feel good. I feel great. I feel wonderful."Grade: C+/B-

Andrew H (au) wrote: My least favourite Almodovar. Showing the lighter side of both terrorism and nymphomania (!) and loosley structured in a giallo-like way (Dario Argento would be proud) it ambles along, offending no-one (if your threshold is not set too low) but not really getting anywhere or doing anything. The ending prefigures "Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and we get a look at a young Antonia Banderas but there's little else to excite.Only for the Almodovar completist.
Leonardo C (es) wrote: Quando vi este filme h uns 15 anos ele logicamente no comunicou comigo como o faz hoje. Achava absurdo que tivesse levado o Oscar sobre Apocalypse Now. Agora, acredito que foi merecido, um filme mais importante e mais sensvel. Somente a direo poderia ter ido para Coppola, Benton muito melhor roteirista que diretor. Hoffman mostra por que meu ator favorito e Streep mostra por que esta lenda. Kramer vs. Kramer dcadas depois segue atual e relevante.
