Based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. "Houston, we have a problem." Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It';s 1970, and America have already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there';s little interest in this "routine" flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade. .

(gb) wrote: The should be called "The Short Films of James Brown", as it tells a large amount of events of his life, but there isn't actually a unifying thread to the story. Which, I know, is a weird thing to say about a biopic, but that's how the movie feels. I guess it's supposed to be the relationship between Brown and Bobby Byrd, but the "why" behind Byrd's actions aren't apparent enough. It really attempts to pack a lot of things in, so I suppose it suffered a bit from it's own ambition. But, most of the tales are mostly true and accurate and fascinating to watch. Chadwick Boseman was perfect. This wasn't just emulating but he nailed a physically difficult performance on top of mannerisms and voice. Eddie Redmayne won the Oscar in 2014, but Boseman was way better and wasn't even nominated.

(jp) wrote: Feast of Love shows you all kinds of different ways to fall in love: love at first sight, homosexuality, infidelity, young love, old love, marriage. It was easy to sit through it and it had a great soundtrack but it sometimes felt like it jumped too fast between the scenes that it took a while to figure out which couple the next scene was about. And there were things that the movie decided not to tell you and it could sometimes be difficult to fill in the gaps. But other than that I enjoyed it, it was a well-thought movie about love and all of its obstacles and consequences. Despite everything that happens it felt credible and realistic but I can imagine that it must be difficult to find an ending for a movie like this, and I'm not quite sure if this ending was right.
(au) wrote: Absolutely irresistible horror comedy that seems to defy clear genre definitions. Mashing up genres is a hallmark of author Joe R. Lansdale, who's short story this film is based on, which revolves around two elderly men in a nursing home, one who believes himself to be Elvis (Bruce Campbell) and the other JFK (Ossie Davis) who find themselves facing off against a cowboy boot wearing, soul sucking, Egyptian mummy. The set-up is hilarious and writer/director Don Coscarelli is the perfect director to handle this oddball material. The film is hilarious at times, in large part due to a great performance by Campbell that strikes just the right tone, with Campbell playing the part seriously and teetering just on the edge of broad comedy. This is probably Campbell's best role outside of Ash in the Evil Dead films. It's also a lot of fun to see a classy person like Ossie Davis in a goofy horror/comedy. But when it comes to horror, director Coscarelli does manage to make some creepy and suspenseful moments that manage to work fairly well with the film's goofy comedy. I really don't know how this film pulls it off, but it totally works and is amazing!

(es) wrote: An awful remake of the "thunderball" script. This said the return of Sean Connery gave the film a little something keeping it from being a downright mess.
(jp) wrote: Hoffman's performance is stellar as is the rest of the cast's but the pacing of the movie is a little uneven. But when all is said and done, this is an important movie about an important comedian.
(ru) wrote: Boasting an all star cast (if an underused Barbara Steele), superb sets, marvelous, psychedelic cinematography and a director with a deft hand who could actually bring all of these elements to bear, you would think that Crimson Altar would be a classic talked about in genre circles for decades. Unfortunately though it falls a bit short in the bargain.It manages to blend together the disparate ingredients of late 60's psychedelia, gothic romanticism and dark ages Satanism really rather well but it suffers from having a bit of a standardy supernatural whodunit premise and an anticlimactic finale.

(gb) wrote: If I Stay started out okay, but quickly spirals down into a sappy mess of a YA film, living off of cliches and manipulative language as opposed to anything really independent. Surprisingly, almost none of this is to the fault of star Chloe Grace-Moretz, who is pretty good playing Mia Hall, a gifted cellist who finds herself in a coma after a tragic car accident that claims the lives of her entire family. Less solid is her costar Jamie Blackley, who portrays Hall's bad-boy bf Adam.If I Stay commits the YA sin of being too slow; taking too long to get rolling. It tries to fill in the gaps with dates, musical performances, and some sappy serenades with an acoustic guitar. Despite these flaws however, teen romance fans, guys and girls, will eat this up. But if one was to examine the whole picture, its really a flashback movie culminating to a split-second decision that really isn't all that compelling.
