(ca) wrote: A desperate story with touching details. The contradicting feeling of a patriot who wants love just as everyone else.
(ru) wrote: Dreamworks continues to show it can bring stunning animation together with realistic performances and an impressive voice cast. While the film offers a lot of fun and adventure its major flaw comes with its uneven and at times questionable narrative. Credit is still due for its funny script, older tone and Michelle Pfeffer's wonderfully played and animated; Eris. A fun afternoon movie.

(ag) wrote: Considered the greatest Anime movie ever made....every time I watch it I try to love it...but I just can't. Although it doesn't take away from the fact that it is a well-made enough film that had a huge impact when it was released in 1988.
(ag) wrote: Not the greatest Stephen King adaptation, although the fiery ending was memorable. There was some suspense, but the story wasn't developed enough. (First and only viewing - 5/19/2016)
(es) wrote: Russell's Mahler does for the composer what his "Gothic" did for 19-century literature -- it captures a very powerful experience with the fusion of images and music, dream-like sequences, and symbolism. The film is edited perfectly, and the series of flashbacks give Russell the opportunity for some very enjoyable and extended musical sequences. A few I found particularly stunning and memorable: Alma's quieting of the village for her husband's work by buying beer for the local band. She then conducts the dancers, performing their landler to her silent gestures, while Mahler, in his lakeside boathouse, vigorously conducts the second movement of his first symphony; poor Gustav dreams of his own death and being cremated alive, while Alma dances provocatively with the pall bearers to the dark and shadowy scherzo of the seventh; finally, the sequence of Alma searching for her children to "In diesem Wetter, in diesem Braus," from her husband's own Kindertotenlieder! A heart-breaking scene, I think. So: dizzying editing, long montages containing some of the most beautiful, powerful and poignant music ever written, and a fine and witty performance by Powell --- no reason not to see this movie. Highly recommended for Mahler-enthusiasts and for those who have not heard one note of his. This just might be the best introduction.

Because there's so many things about the original that were so good, it was memorable. This remake doesn't even add up to it's plot, effects, or characters.Sissy Spacek was Carrie White. She had just the character for her performance. It made me believe her troubled character, and that I praise.Chloe Grace Moretz was nothing more but an annoying bitch. She looks more like a popular girl than a social outcast. Her bloody look didn't make me believe anything about her. I've even grown to hate her for her other stupid performances.And everyone else looked like Hollywood extras than an independent unknown cast. One of the worst horror movie remakes I have watched. I suggest people stay away from this one and keep to the original.

(nl) wrote: Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967) -- [6.5] -- Director John Huston unites Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor for their only screen pairing in this adaptation of the perverse Carson McCullers novel. Brando plays a sexually repressed Army major who turns a blind eye to his wife's (Taylor) extramarital affair while simultaneously finding himself drawn to a mysterious young cadet who spends his days running naked through the woods and his nights as a peeping tom. The provocative subject matter is well handled by Huston, whose only mis-steps are bathing the entire film in a piss-yellow hue and whiplash-inducing camera movement in the film's final, climactic shot. Good performances from Brando, Taylor, and supporting stars Julie Harris and Robert Forster. Best scene is one after Taylor learns Brando has brutally beaten her favorite horse. She marches home to him and, surrounded by party goers, lashes him repeatedly across the face with a jockey whip. Brando takes it like a man in a moment so protracted that Huston is able to slow-dissolve to the next scene.
