(fr) wrote: Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale (2012) "Sidk bali" (original title): Finally a film that deals with the indigenous/aboriginal/tribal people of Taiwan and focuses on the invaders of the island and the horrific tragedies that befell those native peoples resulting in the nigh extinction of their kind due to the first ever use of 'Poison Gas Warfare' in South East Asia... heads roll in this film like you've never seen before, not an easy sight for those viewers who have weak stomachs, but this is the reality of WAR and it's bitter tasting after-effects! I admire the Directors perseverance because this movie almost never reached fruition and was inhibited and delayed by all sorts of hitches along the way. A definite must see film for all those viewers interested in Taiwan, War in the Pacific Theater and how these incidents involving the Japanese, Taiwanese and Seediq peoples have led to the resulting stand-off situation that persists like a nasty water-blister to this very day! Unsettling and rather long-winded and drawn-out some might say at a whopping 2hrs30mins [or even 4hr FULL VERSION], but how else would you expect to broach this massive yet little known or exposed situation? There was no other way round it but to dive in head first and see what could be created to represent the facts as best as humanly possible, on film would allow! Full marks on that point, so I really hope this film get's more exposure internationally in the long run because "WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE" deserves to be seen and absorbed by audiences. It needs to be pondered on as it offers much "food for thought" in this day and age. For those enthusiasts on the topic, Taiwanese Metal band ChthoniC [?? aka Shan-Ling] first brought the topic of this film to my attention years ago, with their fantastic album "????? / Seediq Bale" back in 2005. Had it not been for THAT album, I would be just as naive on this subject today as I was back then [...and as most people around the world remain] to this day! A heavy film, but ultimately a welcome piece of art that brings reality to those of us who weren't there to experience what happened in 1945. Sadly the film has seen limited Cinema exposure in Theatres from April 27th, 2012 until now but will hopefully gain steam since it's DVD release, August 7th, 2012. Keep your eyes peeled for Director Te-Sheng Wei's massive Epic, definitely a Director I shall keep my eye on in future as well! [SCORE: 95/100%]
(fr) wrote: The idea of having this all-star cast (I really do mean all-stars, plenty of fun cameos) playing themselves in a wild wacked out comedy is what makes this movie intriguing. The first half of the film is great. You will really enjoy what seems to be a glimpse into these Hollywood celebrities' lives. I actually enjoyed the movie more as just that then when the extremely weak plot goes into fold. However, you excuse the plot along with the poor CGI because it is just a comedy. Unfortunately, as the plot gets weaker with time so do the jokes. The second half of this movie is awful. If you don't find the idea of a demon devil raping Jonah Hill or Danny McBride making Channing Tatum his sex slave funny, you will despise the second half just as much as I. Much of the humor really goes downhill deeper into the movie, I cannot reiterate this enough. The plot continues to piss you off and by the end of the film, all you have is an extremely sour feeling regarding the stupidity you observed.

(ca) wrote: This is probably one of the first movies I watched more than once.... however, I was quite young when it came out (11) and was intrigued with the fact that I didn't recognize any of the actors, so I couldn't place them in any other films. That fact made it so I could put myself in the "world of the movie" (so to speak).Well, since then, I no longer enjoy the movie as much due to the fact that it's just kind of silly, and of course Capt. Picard is in it. LOL... it was an interesting watch though when I first saw it.
(au) wrote: While it loses points for its blatant inaccuracies, "Amadeus" makes up for it by going the extra mile by doing more than tell the story of someone's life. It touches on themes of obsession and censorship, something you wouldn't expect a biopic to do.
(it) wrote: This is a great film if you're looking for something urban and gritty, driven by a murder mystery against the backdrop of 1990's Brooklyn, before the gentrification. It's definitely one of Spike Lee's top five best films in my humble opinion.
