(mx) wrote: Pretty much what you would expect. Slow paced and attempts at deep emotion and humor, but a lot of it falls flat. It was enjoyable once, but only for the hardcore anime fans. Everyone else can pass.
(ru) wrote: A wholesome, feel good tale of a primary school under-dog who dreams of getting to the world paper plane championships in Japan. It's a super-cheesy film that doesn't always make a lot of sense but its heart is in the right place. In one of the great career gear shifts in recent memory, Melbourne director Robert Connolly, delivers an adorable family film that is uplifting, warm, winning and, most of all, funny. Revealing why he's one of Australia's best contemporary filmmakers, Connolly - known for serious, soulful works like Balibo and The Turning - glides seamlessly into this new family friendly territory. There's a clear formula at play here, but Connolly beautifully colours the template with nicely played humour, a host of memorable characters, and a real emotional edge. Oxenbould's acting is natural and unforced, with the kids' interaction possessing an authenticity that helps center the story. Worthington brings just the right amount of brooding to Jake in the context of the plot, and Wenham's bemusement at his son's precocious competitiveness is an inspired touch. We may know how Paper Planes will land, but that makes its swooping, soaring flight to the finish line no less charming or touching. A winsome feel-good tale that pushes all the right buttons, though seldom gently.VERDICT: "High-Quality Stuff" - [Positive Reaction] This is a rating to a movie I view as very entertaining and well made, and definitely worth paying the full price at a theatre to see or own on DVD. It is not perfect, but it is definitely excellent... (Films that are rated 3.5 or 4 stars)

Then find you snagged on frowns, and slowly dawns... you're jazzing to the bleep tone of a life support machine, that marks the steady fading of your day old baby daughter. And when midnight sirens lead to blue-flash road-mash. Stretchers, covered heads, and slippy red macadam, and find you creeping 'neath the blankets, to snuggle close a mangle bird, hoping soon you too will be freezer drawered. Then welcome... mmm... ooh, chemotherapy wig, welcome. In Jam. Jam. Jam. Jam. Jam. Jaaaaam.
(au) wrote: Simply put, and in lieu of a review; this one may not be the most uniquely proposed or sunniest of films but it is an engaging little existential drama, if even an homage to a certain 1962 film (a keyword search will tell you which film I'm referring to). That being said, Simone Br's screenplay incorporates strong mixture of thinking and intuition to support the plot-line (as it is) and thoroughly convince auds, even upon reflection. A genuine effort.
(de) wrote: One man's investigation into his (famous) father. Haskell Wexler is opinionated and uncompromising, mostly coming off as wanting to direct son Mark's documentary. He's very concerned with image and posterity and exhibits a strong sense of the paranoid. On the other hand, the movie doesn't really look that good, and most of his ideas about how the son should shoot are better than what happens. Mark spends too much time on himself and both desperately wants his father's approval and argues with him constantly. Even a late emotional scene can't undo the overall blandness of the entire film.

(us) wrote: Much better then all the others it's great for the video game horror genre
(ag) wrote: Weird film. Good though. Love films with surrealism too so I enjoyed it. Hard to follow at times so can't rate it higher than a 3/5 but still one I enjoyed

Unmask his ego and you expose a coward disguised as a monkey." -There's way to much of Lee's ideas in here to let the lack luster overall impression of this movie bring down the deeply spiritual and enlightened concepts. Yes, its god awfully corny -so much so that it's a good thing. Seeing Carradine blow out that torch has me wondering to this day if he really did it. Or when he punches the cow, watch the animals eyes, its priceless, -and hey they guy plays like 3 of the roles. Its great fun to watch alone or with friends if your in the mood for a fun, insightful, corny corny corny movie. 10 stars -"tie two birds together, and though they have four wings, they cannot fly..."

(br) wrote: Bresson's first masterpiece is probably his saddest and most melancholy film.
(au) wrote: Great guilty pleasure movie. Definitely not one for the critics as the standards of film making are not award winning. However, anyone that loves a good 80's action flick, but would like to see a 21st century twist with a leading woman at the held will love this movie.

(it) wrote: Nobody can say the story in this film isn't original because it's that ridiculous it's hard not to love it, It picks up straight away from Afterlife but for some reason Claire and Chris Redfield disappear without a mention (They like leaving us in the dark about things like this) But we have a returning Jill Valentine who is now under the control of Umbrella, She looks and even dresses like Jill in Resident Evil 5 the game, We get introduced to Leon who is played by Johann Urb who can't act one bit, Ada Wong and Barry Burton are also finally given the live screen treatment but are underused, We also get to see the Las Plagas zombies who were pretty cool, The action was great maybe a little over the top, The effects were good most of the time and the 3D was pretty good too, Probably one of my favourite Resident Evil films nut it's also one of the silliest but you got to say the final scene in this movie looks like we are set for an epic Finale.
