Allan C (es) wrote: Interesting little short film of the comic of the same name in an anime style. Good voice cast includes Thomas Jane, Linda Hamilton, James Marsden, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Michael Rooker. Coolest of all is that it's written by Joe R. Lansdale, who probably should have written the live action film version.

Emily B (it) wrote: "All of life is salt water ... tears, sweat and the sea" Claire McKay comes to the island after the tragic death of her boyfriend and finds comfort in the storytelling of an old woman about the curse of the island. A tragic but romantic story of two women trying to move past their grief. Kirsten Dunst's acting was awful but the story was beautiful and very poetic. I love stories about small fishing towns. Something about them is so captivating and they always makes wonderful settings for stories.
Luke B (au) wrote: If, like me, you are a big fan of cheap monster movies, then you should check out Komodo. A fairly respectable cast assemble to tell the story of a young boy forced to return to the site of his parents death. His psychiatrist thinks it will be good for him, little does she know some nasty Komodo dragons lay in wait, ready to rip some shit up. The characters are believable and the film manages to avoid many cliches by keeping the cast of characters small. The biggest plus to this film are the effects, they are exceptionally good for a film of this budget, especially considering it is around 10 years old now. It mixes CGI and puppetry, seamlessly.

After winning the competition it soon back fires and the world is at risk of being changed unless they win the fight one more time. Some of the effects looking back are terrible but its a film what you are use to when growing up. Mortal Komabt !!!!!!!
Blake P (br) wrote: Cinema underestimates the value of films in which characters just talk. In the romance genre, especially, all devotion is dependent upon grand gestures, raucous exchanges, and love scenes that look more "Basic Instinct" than everyday, a somewhat maddening plight that designates a very human experience as something dreamy and untouchable, more fantasy than comestible fiction. There's nothing wrong with a movie romance, per se - but one can tire of watching characters, after only a few days of knowing each other, dramatically reveal that they are, in fact, consumed by love. Done wrong, it can feel like a sham. Which is why "Before Sunrise" has remained relevant for so long - in an era where Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant fakery (that I must admit was appealing so long as it was clouded by witty judgment) were the works most audiences turned to for old-fashioned romance, it ripped clichs apart and wondered if a cinematic couple could fall in love just through dialogue, no sex scenes nor artificial contrivances to impair passion. Some call it a memorable look at modern romance, but I call it a memorable look into romance, no adjectives needed. "Before Sunrise" is as close to natural as the movies can get. The people falling in love at its center are Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Cline (Julie Delpy), a pair of twenty-somethings who meet by chance in Europe. Both traveling by train, Jesse to Vienna and Cline back to her Parisian university, an instant connection is made after Jesse proposes they lounge in the dining car after a bickering couple leaves the seating area vastly uncomfortable. Just a few minutes into conversation do they realize that there is a very real spark between them: thoughts about life, love, and their liberties flow like summer wine, a slight humor edging out the dialogue with better-than-usual meet-cute fashion. A couple of hours go by and departure is impending - but the two don't much feel like selling their attachment short. Jesse proposes that Cline spend the rest of the day in Vienna with him (he leaves for America the following morning), and she enthusiastically accepts. And so the rest of "Before Sunrise" simply watches them talk, with us sighing optimistically as their quick friendship blossoms into love. Though I may have complained earlier about my intolerance for couples who fall head over heels for one another unbelievably quickly in film, "Before Sunrise" makes for a different case. In most, individuals involved have clipped, severely shallow conversation that does little to suggest that a passion lingers. But in this film, we are witnesses to the very process of finding a true soulmate, where a few hours is enough to make for a lifetime. The way Jesse and Cline speak to each other, it's impossible not to believe that authentic affection remains. I don't recall them ever uttering the phrase "I love you," but they don't need to: you can see it in their eyes, and such a epiphany would only be damaging, as they, realistically, cannot be together. As the film's leads, Hawke and Delpy don't even seem to be acting, most commenting that they have chemistry, charisma, that gives the impression that they're real people being followed around by an invisible camera, unaware how their cleverness appears to be rooted in an ultimate vulnerability that all twenty-somethings face. They might not be experts in the art of love, but with each other, they just might have a taste of what it actually is. Hawke and Delpy are agreeably earnest, largely average people we really like, as it should be. Of course, "Before Sunrise" is the kind of film that feels like an introduction, as later installments, 2004's "Before Sunset" and 2013's "Before Midnight," continue their romantic rendezvous and see them as older, wiser people with more experience to base their connection off of. In that sense, we leave wanting more, desperate for more time. But that's how it goes in a brief encounter that we wish could last longer. Richard Linklater, writing and directing his third film here, never lets that feeling lose its footing, his screenplay beautiful, his directing nuanced. "Before Sunrise" might not be what we talk about when we talk about love, but it's time to turn a blind eye to Tom and Meg and make a switch to this near documentary.

Byron B (nl) wrote: Moves along quickly. Concise and doesn't mess around with a lot of extraneous characters or occurrences. Anne Jeffreys doesn't have a very deep part as Dillinger's moll. The main conflict comes from within the gang as Dillinger's old mentor betrays him when Dillinger takes more control of the gang's actions. Plus the rest of the gang becomes more and more uncomfortable with Dillinger's violent outbursts even as they're impressed with his ability to get things done. This movie does not include a major FBI or police character who mercilessly chases Dillinger and his gang. But several of the same themes of Dillinger's life that are expressed in the new film Public Enemies are here too. I particularly liked how Dillinger was a movie fan and saw Manhattan Melodrama at the Biograph Theater when he was finally cornered by the authorities.
