(ag) wrote: Structurally, "Brief" is enlivening and inspired. Some of the conclusions the film comes to, however, are quite questionable, if not downright offensive. Krasiniski tries to split the difference between feminism and post-feminism by trying to make the idea of victimhood a universal, rather than an issue of gender. Whatever point he's REALLY trying to make gets muddied, and our involvement with the central characters dissipates simultaneously. The highlight, for me, is Subject 42's (Frankie Faison) extended dialogue with his deceased father, an African American man who lived and died a washroom attendant to rich white men. Their intense, pained and emotional duet deals with the intersection of shame and necessity; the whole scene is filmed and edited with much more care than Krasinksi gave to the other 95% of his debut feature.
(ag) wrote: Its a cheesy cheesy kids film that i have liked since I was 5. Cheaper by the Dozen has its moments of fun and entertainment, It has pretty bad and predictable humor, but still has a fun feel to it. The sequel fails to do better than the first movie as most kids films do. Cheaper by the Dozen wont be to your liking if your over 12

For what it lacks in star-power and production values, it more than makes up for with nail-biting tension that puts you in the shoes of these two unfortunate people when you realize just how terrifying the ocean actually is. The film is shot with HD cameras to give it a hyper-realistic feel which puts you right there with them and horrifies the audience every now and then when the camera dips below the surface and shows us what is swimming around them. One amazing thing about this film is that no CGI was used and thus the sharks, jellyfish, etc were all real and the actors had to overcome their fears and swim amongst them. This film is the true definition of a HORROR film as the situation these people find themselves in is the absolute last thing I would ever want to experience and the filmmakers do a great job keeping the tension taut throughout. It proves that imagination is far-scarier than big-budget effects and this is easily the scariest shark film since Jaws!

(nl) wrote: This movie is pretty awesome. The script is unique and cheesy, but many laughs are packed within some funny acting and memorable moments. It is not as good as Baseketball, but having Ron Jeremy in your movie makes it that much funnier!

(kr) wrote: Certainly Ferrara's dark vision will not be for most, but this brutally realistic film packs a punch. Harvey Keitel truly morphs into every fiber of this character. He stumbles, attacks and moves forward like a mortally-wounded dog. Transgressive and sordid, the film goes farther than it should. But as the remembrance of the officer's former life and faith seeps into his current state of debauchery, there is a clunky begging for redemption and humanity.

In his clumsy attempt to an apology, he causes another accident that leaves the doctor's daughter completely blind. Sirk's drama is a deeply compelling film with hard hitting turns of events, and a genuinely harrowing look at both family values and personal values. Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman are just wonderful.
(br) wrote: Stake Land features a zombie-like vampire apocalypse. The mysterious plague turned people into zombie-like vampires, young boy Martin rescued by a stranger known as Mister traveled together to find a safe haven, but vampires are not the only threatening the humanity. The cast is fantastic, you have Connor Paolo and Danielle Harris playing the leading roles. The fighting scenes were realistic, unlike most other films of the same genre, you see real focus on survival and building characters. Stake Land is also somewhat libertarian too with it's anti governmental message. But all and all, it felt short at the end with the uneven script.
