Ball Of Fire torrent reviews
(ag) wrote: Horror film with indie touch. Loved it.
(it) wrote: It is more like a B-grade British film to me with some intensity and surprisingly a thrilling climax. Questioning who, where and how? As they are searching the cause of this crazy train madness. A fun yet watchable though easily forgettable. 3 out of 5
(fr) wrote: A really good action drama. It had a great plot
(gb) wrote: This is possibly one of the great Documentaries ever filmed. There tend to be few Documentaries that take the oppurtuinity of it's medium. Film can record great momments in time and in Cinemania it manages to record those great momments of some of the most amusing people. Along with Grey Gardens and Exit Through The Gift Shop, this definitely one of those film that exploit the cult of eccentric Humanity beautifully.
(us) wrote: Horrible movie from horrible book. There's nothing 'free spirited' about this. It appears most people agree. Trash.
(au) wrote: Magnifique film qui nous montre le reporter du guerre dans toute sa complexit et joue magnifiquement du mlange des images (vraie, fausse, vido, pellicule...) Michael Winterbottom est un grand ralisateur trop peu connu...
(us) wrote: It's funny how I loved Shanghai Noon but disliked this movie. I thought it to be a little bit racist (espcialy from an Asian director and writer), but it had it's good cheesy parts. Fighting scenes were okay, nothing too special.
(es) wrote: Wonderful sad movie, a must see...
(us) wrote: A good movie with very good actors... My favorite line (from Mark 8) is "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?
(de) wrote: "Sister Manure, Sister Rat, Sister Damned, Sister Snake. Man will not be saved until he realizes he is the most despicable being ever created."A most unconventional convent, populated with drug addicts, murderers, extortionists and lesbians. Almost makes me wish I was Catholic.

(us) wrote: Short and sweet. This Universal creeper from the early forties is surprisingly powerful, particularly because of a tremendous little performance by Lon Chaney, Jr. In it, he does what he would eventually be most famous for doing in 'The Wolfman' that same year: he portrayed a man fallen to monstrous circumstances rather than just playing the straight creature. In fact, though the film's premise comes from his eventual turning into an electrical monster, most of Chaney's screen time revolves around simple human scenes. The finale is made all the more bitter because of the tender way he looks at the woman he is clearly in love with, June Lawrence (played by Anne Nagel). The story resists giving him that love in favor of a much more tragic plot, one that avoids giving the love triangle too much attention and instead hints at it with subtle asides and gestures. This script is actually quite good for a B movie, and there are some terrific dialogue sequences. I was also taken aback by the film's special effects, which are effective and chilling.
(es) wrote: Let me start by saying Dustin Hoffman and Susan George give their allin Sam Peckinpah's highly controversial and genre-blending classic,Straw Dogs. And Yes, I use the word "classic" in its full context. Thismovie is a classic; a triumphant voyage into the psyche and limits ofmanhood; and what entails manhood and its harsh decisions. Intense,dramatic and certainly shocking, Straw Dogs is a film of high merit, inmy opinion, because of one thing: relate ability. Dustin isn't somesuperman punching intergalactic overlords through space rocks to earnthe love and respect of his girl. No. He's just the ordinary guy. He'snon-confrontational, quiet and pacifistic by the beginning; hoping justto give his wife the best in their new secluded home. The last 20minutes, however, his true nature is tested through unconventional andtruculent situations which endanger his honor; his wife and their"home". The journey to this point is slow, but rewarding as well. Theslow build-up not only adds realism and dynamic emotion into the plot;it adds to the shocking and extraordinary finish. And yeah yeah; themovie is highly controversial for its *ahem* sexually exploitativescenes and accused male chauvinism....but honestly, this is all needed.I mean, heck, in no way, am I trying to justify the feminineportrayals/treatments in this film as genuine or politically correct.Because they aren't. However, they are real. And this film, which isn'tperfect by any means, is effectivelyreal. And for s digitalized and "mainstream" film, especially accordingto the films today and in retrospect, that's a mighty accomplishment!P.S. Best Line: Tie between ".......Jesus,......I got 'em all" and "YouOK?" (Both lines appear near the end of the film.-Tsuwamono
