(kr) wrote: In a world of cloyingly long coming of age films such as the criminally overhyped and ultra angst-y Boyhood, Morris From America stands out as comparably light and easy fare that effectively delivers thoughtful tones in a brisk 90 minute narrative that avoids sinking itself on the type of grandstanding that halted Boyhood in its tracks. Christmas is a great find here, playing a sort of Kevin McAllister meets August Rush type character who brings a real gravity to each scene. When Morris falls, we fall too and that's what makes this young actor someone to watch. Craig Robinson has had a sad career thus far, serving as the African American comedy sidekick in nearly every film so far (most of which have been rotten). Not only is it good to see him get a leading role but it's also nice to see him dial back the raunchy humor and settle into something more serious. He does a good job here, playing a struggling parent well. I hope to see him in more films like this and less of Rogen's trash heap. Overall, Morris From America is a unique, touching and well crafted coming of age tale that subverts many of the genre expectations and delivers both African American lead roles and a fantastic hip-hop based soundtrack. I'll take whatever Hartigan is serving next.

Treading on such familiar ground, this Texas Chainsaw Masscre clone is predictable, and unoriginal with low production values. There is some creativity to be found in the picture but Cameron doesn't have the skills required to make it work. Add in bad costumes, hair and dialogue that make this "period" piece seem like a modern day kill fest and you get a film that has nothing more than a family name and some decent gore. Rent it if you must do anything but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
(us) wrote: Decent special effects, all things considered, cannot and did not save this film from (mostly) awful acting, bland directing, and one of the dumbest scripts I've witnessed in quite sometime (and that's just not hyperbole, its really that dumb.Cowriters/ directors Richard and Fran Clabaugh really do have their hearts in the right place- trying to merge genres in unexpected ways, and make a solid action film with a good pace at the same time- unfortunately though they have no sense of style. As directors, they don't take any chances, making for an extremely bland movie.When it comes to getting decent performances, they're even worse. Aside from a passably and at times, fun, performance from our young hero, Luke Eberl, no one else is all that convincing. Most of the actors/ actresses give monotone deliveries and they can't really handle the action either.The action is, at times, ok, when the special effects are doing lots of it. But when it's mostly, or just the humans, it's worse than a fat Steven Segal, with absolutely no one being able to believably throw a punch, kick, or shoot a gun.

By action standards this blows Hollywood films out of the water, but despite that I kind of wished there was more of a story to it. The last half-hour or more is really one big fight scene. Still, it's good. Very good.

(nl) wrote: This isn't quite the perfect movie that Citizen Kane is, but then not every movie can be. It's still a dazzling, fascinating, and completely unpredictable movie evidently made by a true genius. It's a film noir, sorta, but not like any other noir I've ever seen. The story follows a young sailor (Orson Welles himself, doing a funny stage Irish accent) who is hired to work on the yacht of a very weird married couple: the seductive and mysterious Elsa (Rita Hayworth) and her husband (Everett Sloane), a wealthy, crippled lawyer. I don't want to give away any more than that, but suffice to say the movie took a bunch of twists and turns I didn't anticipate. The performances are excellent, and there's a bizarre romantic sequence in an aquarium. The house-of-mirrors sequence at the end is amazing. Welles's direction is often expressionistic, finding ways to render familiar things bizarre and uncanny. There was no one quite like Orson Welles, and it's a shame he had such a consistently difficult career. At least we can appreciate him now.

Ben Foster was spot on in the lead role and the guy must have been through some hardcore training to ride the bike the way he does on screen. Chris O' Dowd was also on top form as the determined journalist who always suspected there was something dodgy about Lance Armstrong's sudden increase in ability, despite all of those around him dismissing him as a hack looking for a sensational story where there was none. Worth seeing whether you have an interest in the sport or not, especially for the passive aggressive manipulations of Armstrong of all of those around him.
