Kathryn N (de) wrote: A slightly disturbing love story? It's a unique story, with manipulative, manic, and mentally sick people, but it kept me interested. I find it hard to relate to seemingly sociopathic type personalities, but they did show vulnerability, which made the movie watchable. I guess it is probably a fairly honest-to-life situation - the people involved are somewhat disconnected from reality. It was quite a sad depressing film too, when you think about it. The reason I rate it half decently, is because you really do believe the characters, no matter how messed up they are.
Benji G (ru) wrote: Some of the effects don't hold up as well as you'd like them too, and Schwarzenegger continues to be the same entertaining as hell bad actor he always was (capped by a quintessential Schwarzenegger-action movie ending), but Predator is one of the most fun, entertaining, surprisingly suspenseful R-rated action movie we all love to watch.

Now after seeing him in numerous films, I can honestly say his boyish charm is grown on me as he characters also tend to have a lethal mean streak, as seen here in one of his most defining films "A Pistol for Ringo."Christmas celebration in a small southern town comes to a complete halt when a Mexican gang rides in and violently robs the towns bank. With the sheriff and posse hot on their trail, the gang takes refuge in a ranch and threatens to shoot a ranch hand every morning and night for which they are not allowed to cross over into Mexico with money in hand. As a last resort the sheriff sends in a prisoner named Ringo (Gemma) in order to kill them off, rescuing the sheriff's fianc (C)e.Gemma is wonderful in the eccentric character of Ringo. Who else could pull off a character who is introduced playing hopscotch with kids before brutally killing two bastards in cold blood? What Gemma plays off so well is the duel nature of Ringo. The audience never knows if they can trust this guy. First of all he demands 30% of the stolen cash from the town in order to rescue the ranch owners. Then he sells out ot the gang for 40% to help the defeat the town, and then vice versa again. Don't let the clean cut nature of his character fool you into thinking that this is going to be hero... he's just as much an anti-hero as the scruffy Leone characters, just with a little more wit and silly charm.The rest of the cast is competent, lead by Fernando Sancho playing the gang leader named, what else, Sancho. This guy is picture perfect as the fat, arrogant Mexican gang leader and he's played this same type of character umpteen times before. Seriously I've lost count how many times I've seen this guy playing the same skuzzy characters in Spaghetti Westerns. My favorite aspect of the film is the dead on humor brilliantly placed by director Duccio Tessari. I openly laughed on more than one occasion and this isn't even a Spaghetti Western comedy. Of course there's the opening hopscotch killings, a bullet ricochet off a bell that kills a goon, some silly knife throwing scenes and of course the peculiar aspect that our antihero doesn't drink whiskey, only milk. The quotable dialogue also gets the laughs coming deep within.Ennio Morricone's score, however, sounds more Americanized like it's more tailored for an American westerns. I know it's blasphemy to say anything against Morricone but this score just isn't very Spaghetti Westernish. I also wasn't keen on how many of the climatic sequences were filmed in that dreaded 'day-for-night' bullshit where they film in the daylight but darken the film. Overall "A Pistol for Ringo" is a very satisfying Spaghetti Western and it proved popular enough to be followed by one official sequel ("Return of Ringo") and enough unofficial knock-offs utilizing the name Ringo to rival as many unofficial sequels to "Django." Giuliano Gemma also was catapulted into superstardom in Italy and went on to star in numerous entries into this loveable subgenre. As for DVD releases the only good release I could hunt down is in a box set entitled "The Best of Spaghetti Westerns". "A Pistol for Ringo", as with the rest of the films, has a decent widescreen transfer.
Brett C (nl) wrote: Review In A Nutshell:Jules and Jim is about two close friends who meets a girl, Catherine, which then develops into a love triangle that ultimately affects both of these men's lives.The film explores ideas of loyalty, friendship, and love in a way that would normally come off as interesting and entertaining, especially for someone like me who has a weakness for digestible and clich themes. Sadly the film falls short in making these aspects interesting due to the film's central characters. I have not read the novel, and this film would mark as my first in exploring Francois Truffaut's filmography, so I had no expectations coming into this. Truffaut handles the film's characters and story in a quirky and offbeat kind of way, where the events and emotions that films like these would normally walk on would be manipulated in order to have them look and feel stripped down. I see what Truffaut is trying to do with it, as he wants the film to feel more natural, with emotions not always being expressed in a clear and heavy way paralleling to the true nature of humanity, but he has forgotten to give the film a handle for audiences to easily hold, therefore leaving me feeling detached with the characters and the story almost throughout the film's running time. I have to search so much into each scene that by the time I get to its emotional core, I end up feeling exhausted and the drive to figure out what the film is truly trying to deliver starts to fade away from me.In terms of the film's plot and narrative, I found it to be interesting as the struggle between each member of the trio of keeping the one they truly care about from leaving and it wasn't hard to follow the intentions of each character. My main issue with the narrative is the pacing and it's delivery of its emotions, which is something I have already discussed. The film flies by the first act of the film, with the introduction of its two male leads and the relationship the characters have. The film doesn't slow down to give us any room to breathe and take it all in, therefore I gave up trying to keep up with it and hopefully as the film goes on, I'll gain a better insight on the characters, which in a way did. The second and third act does eventually slow down the film's pace, but not by a lot. Truffaut gives us a bit more time to take in the characters' motives and persona but I still personally felt that the tempo was still too elevated for me to really feel comprehensively invested, as there was just so much that Truffaut wanted to flesh out but didn't want to lose that sense of urgency and offbeat quality. At first I felt that the film's climax happened too suddenly and lacked any sense of impact, it started to grow on me a little bit as I'm writing this and developing some sort of empathy towards the decisions both of the characters would make; I think it would be something that would come off much better during a second viewing.With all of the film's issues, it would be normal for one to find the dialogue in this film to be lacklustre, but surprisingly, it's actually one of the film's best qualities. This is not to say that it's perfect but it is a clear notch up when compared to other aspects of the film. The dialogue really made the characters feel interesting to watch, as they ramble on things that definitely resemble the personality and interests of Truffaut and his colleagues. The topics being discussed throughout the film are of the "higher" class, going in depth in things like wine, plays, and psychology. Even after the war that the male characters has went through, the way they discuss it upon reflection is more along the lines of a third-person rather than first; discussing how it impacted others rather than how it was for themselves, almost as if they didn't participate in it. Though, I did find the film's dialogue at times to be a tad bit too indulgent. Characters at times tend to ramble on a tad longer than they should and therefore coming off as a bit tedious in particular moments. The dialogue also lacked a bit off emotion, which was definitely needed on defining moments in the film. The film also includes a voice-over which was used in a way that was smarter than the characters themselves. It acts as a support for the audience to make up for the emotional core and insight that the film lacks, which did its job wonderfully but I personally found unnecessary. The film would have been much more effective if the characters were a bit more clear in themselves and let out a sliver, just a sliver, of elevated drama to give the film a bit weight.The film's black and white photography looked quite good though I felt could have been much better in making scenes feel more impacting. Throughout the film we see wonderful tracking shots and pans that do occasionally create that parallel to the film's themes and ideas, but it wasn't enough to carry the film. The film's score on the other hand was a much more satisfying aspect. It was able to heighten that offbeat and quirky style that the director was going for. It also wonderfully captures the mood of the scene perfectly, with at times keeping me highly engaged due to the score alone.The film's acting was actually great for what it was. If the actors weren't so restricted by Truffaut's direction and script then the actors would have definitely gotten more praise from me as their characters would have felt more fleshed out and genuine in a cinematic way. All of the three main actors, Henri Sarre; Oskar Werner; and Jeanne Moreau, were great in their roles. All were able to give that energy that Truffaut demanded from them while also sneaking in a hint of internal vulnerability in their characters. Each actor was able to deliver their dialogue really well and they were able to make use of the space that was given to them, exhibiting great physical performances.I can definitely understand the praise that this film has received as I do see the qualities that make it a unique and great film, but it just didn't hit home for me at an emotional level, coming off as over-directed rather than the genuineness that it was clearly trying to evoke.
