David S (es) wrote: One of the very rare films (if any) starring Robin Williams I didn't enjoy. It's just not a good movie. It's simple but it just didn't entertain me much at all. I still struggle to like Mila Kunis as an actress, besides from Black Swan I really can't think of a film I loved her in. A couple chuckles here and there but it ultimately fell flat on its face for me. Not a fan
Danny S (mx) wrote: Cliched made for tv Sci-Fi original movie. Not much in the way of plot or casting decisions, but since I'm a sucker for mutated animals killing people, this film makes me smile with it's cheese factor. Good for those boring Sunday afternoons.

Jared S (gb) wrote: The first film by the legendary Godard, a personal idol of mine, I had the pleasure of seeing in the theater. As cryptic as ever, and yet, strangely accessible. Cerebrally powerful. The contrasting of real life drama and celluloid drama is classic Godard.

Karina W (de) wrote: Flawed but still chilling. Too much time is spent at the beginning with the teddy boy gang (they seem horribly dated and put me in mind of Bill Hicks' routine about the politeness of English 'hooligans'). Still, Weymouth has never made a more chilling backdrop for the post apocalypse world domination plans of a mad scientist.
Simon S (de) wrote: While Bryan Singer brings an old-fashioned approach to the source material that successfully hearkens back to Richard Donner's classic films, Superman Returns amounts to nothing more than a tepid homage that evokes little excitement or fervor.
Phillip O (ca) wrote: Pretty cool documentary--certainly makes you miss the magazine in its prime. Reminded me of Keith Richards' LIFE: it's fantastic until the creative well runs dry and substances and ducats start to fill the hole.
Carlos M (ag) wrote: A resonant and visually stunning period piece about a beautiful but unfortunate young woman born in an ungrateful time and divided between two men who are bound to abuse her - and even if the film may feel too long, the cinematography and art direction are a marvel to behold.
