Caroline S (jp) wrote: OK.. quite interesting, enjoyed the different films..a bit of fun.

Simon D (br) wrote: An interesting story of a German kid who goes to Cambodia and is taken for a ride by a local hooker. Oddly, he falls in love and, at no point, applies any common sense and instead follows his heart despite some things that would drive most idiots to come to their senses. Watch it and see if it works out for him or not.

sherry c (ca) wrote: The story is about a slightly misjudgement causing a serious consequence. And the consequence is heart-breaking enough that no one can ever imagine. Although the movie is not as many action scenes as I though, I still enjoy this movie so much. And once again, Alan Mak and Felix Chong had mde another remarkable HK movie. Sean Lau is as good as usual, Louis Koo is getting better and better. Their acting makes me enjoy this movie so much.

Noname (ca) wrote: Here we have yet another comedy romance movie or lighthearted drama beacuse its not quite funny enough to be called comedy but there are some silly scenes from Steve Zahn. I think it was the first i saw Steve in a romance movie and it felt not like his genre all the time but he pulled it off quite good in the end. Jennifer Aniston on the other did a very good role i thought and well she usually does and as always looks stunning. The story was rather simple and solid aswell altho i can think of much better movies in this genre but still its an enjoyable flick all in all.

Matt C (au) wrote: A low budget film that tried to pretend it wasn't. No real redeeming plot either.

Todd W (jp) wrote: This film is ALL about Don Cheadle & Chiwetel Ejiofor (both superb). After a really engaging start, it quickly descends into predictable mediocrity. This autobiographical story deserved stronger/edgier filmmaking.

Austin R (it) wrote: Daddy Day Care largely targets it's silly humor to young children but has enough moments for adults to have a fun time with the shenanigans that follow its premise.

Cory M (nl) wrote: Watching this documentary made me want to kill myself. Boring and extremely long for 80 min. The people in this film are so disgusting that I couldn't care any less for them if I tried. Really wish I had never seen this. It get points for pissing me off so badly.

Grant H (gb) wrote: Good movie. Suspenseful, good action, good twists, though one too many, with good performances from Travolta and Jackson.

Rob A (br) wrote: Tarr's film about the apocalyptic breakdown of society, the malevolent forces that benefit and the innocents who are lost features his trademark long takes and is elevated to the level of the sublime by its musical score.

Courtney K (kr) wrote: um, Sally Field did an absolute wonderful job portraying Sybil. this story is so fascinating and completely heart breaking; the book sucked me right in which is why i wanted to see the movie. comparatively, they left out a few major incidents which i found rather disturbing, and didn't linger on the ones that they did show for very long -- in my opinion the book was much better (or worse, depending on your perspective). i felt like i knew Sybil's feelings more in the book which broke my heart even more so when i watched the movie i wasn't really as affected by it because you don't get to know that stuff in the movie. the book also touched on the other personalities much more than the movie did as well... i think you only really get to know Peggy, Vicky and Vanessa with a little bit of Marcia in the film whereas the book touches on all of them at least a little bit. and if i remember right, they don't tell you in the movie that Peggy is two different personalities -- Peggy Lou and Peggy Ann. anyways. it was very well done considering.

Marc R (de) wrote: An awesome spectacle still. Gable is cool and Vivien Leigh towers in one of the all-time Hollywood performances. But the film's gross romanticizing of the antebellum south and slavery is almost unforgivable.
