(gb) wrote: A movie about a group of tabletop role players. None of them are very likable. Seriously. It's as if a close minded jock from the 80's make up some characters and a story to go with it. I doubt that that is the case, but that's how it feels. Don't waste your time.
(gb) wrote: Absolutely amazing film! I saw the directors cut and I loved it. I am going to share this with all my friends and family. Can't wait to see the whole film.
(es) wrote: As a fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman's impressive talent, I wanted to check 'Jack Goes Boating', and was surprised to read that he both directed and stars in the movie. This is one of those very small movies that rely more in character development and good acting that an elaborate plot. Nothing much happens in the meeting and eventual romance of two very shy people, and watching these characters can actually be painful at times, but I found the film very sweet and moving, and Hoffman doesn't disappoint.

(au) wrote: Awww man!! This JUST misses the mark of being an instant cult classic! It could still find a low ranking slot in the long run however. All of the potential is there. I think that the cinematography has a perfectly dark, serial-killery feel to it. The acting is well done despite lacking a ton of chemistry. The directing and editing is splendid albeit less than inspired. The predictability is well played off by the obvious-after-the-fact twists. Incorporation of the "Classic Horror Movie Formula" into the story line isn't at all original, marking what could be the missing link; When doing something that has already been done, please do it far better - or expound on it - at the very least! Perhaps had this film taken a slightly different, truly unexpected turn, or added more dry and obscure humor, that it could have been knocked outta the park. A cameo by an actor that had played "The Shape" aka "Michael Myers" would have completed the genre trifecta that is repeatedly referenced as well (Appearances are made by both Robert Englund and Kane Hodder). Sadly, Behind The Mask: The Rise and Fall of Leslie Vernon just doesn't go the extra mile, which certainly would have secured itself a spot as a phenomenal slasher movie.

(fr) wrote: Starts off slow, introducing the characters. Not only is it from New Zealand, it's 15 years old, very little translates in regards to cinematography, music, any style. What does come across is the harsh abuse. The binge drinking is comical. Three guys sitting at a table with five full pitchers of beer and 20 empty liter bottles. The guy just picks of the pitcher of beer and drinks. Even if the other four pitchers aren't for them, damn. It's like "Hey, I already had seven liters of beer today, lets just drink from the pitcher". The film illustrates the profound suffering incurred by not having birth control, and what becomes of a people that don't assimilate. Having a 16 year old play a 13 year old is unconvincing, Page could pull it off in Hard Candy but the actress doesn't look it here. It's weird at the end how they try to stop vigilante justice, I guess they wanted him to have a fair trial. Great ending.

(fr) wrote: Religious hypocrisy is the main theme of 'Sadie Thompson', based on a short story by W. Somerset Maugham. Sharing the same hotel in Pago Pago, a religious reformer (Lionel Barrymore) takes a dim view of a 'loose' woman (Gloria Swanson), and after failing to get her to change her ways, lobbies the local governor to get her shipped back to San Francisco. I liked this version a bit better than the 1932 version with Walter Huston and Joan Crawford because Barrymore is so brilliant, so harshly upright but at the same time, hinting at a demonic side as he glowers away. Despite the movie being silent, director Raoul Walsh (who also plays Swanson's love interest) delivers a couple of compelling scenes with Barrymore trying to exert his will, Swanson resisting, and the rain coming down, unrelenting. Swanson also lets loose with her anger, and in one funny moment it's obvious she's cursed a blue streak, as the ladies around her cover their ears and scamper off. 1928 was the first year for the Oscars and Swanson would be nominated for her performance. I admire her for it, but admire her more for producing the movie despite pressure because of its content, and considered a slightly higher rating.The film itself is not in that great a shape, and while the last couple of minutes are mostly gone forever, we're fortunate that Dennis Doros restored it as best possible mostly with carefully selected stills. Watching this one has you clearly thinking you're getting a window into the past, but at the same time, aren't these themes of religious overreach still so prevalent today? Thank you Gloria Swanson.
