Alasdair B (de) wrote: I rarely watch foreign films, but when I do, I tend you enjoy them very much. Last year, Best Picture and Best Director went home with the film, Birdman. "Biutiful" is directed by the same director-Alejandro Gonzlez Irritu-and stars Javier Bardem. Before I start this review, I want to make it clear that you should watch this only if you are into dark, gloomy movies. This film is not for everyone.Bardem plays the role of a struggling father named, Uxbal. He lives with his two children in a run down little apartment. Uxbal secretly works for the black market, selling items made by a Chinese factory. He lives a pretty low life, but his children are the one thing that seem to be good in his life. As a side job, he talks to the dead. He's paid to talk to deceased loved ones. One morning, he notices blood in his urine. He has been diagnosed with a type of cancer. With only a few short months left, Uxbal is set with the task of putting all of his affairs in order.This film boasts a very impressive cast, but none of them shine like Bardem. He won the award for Best Actor in the 2005 film, No Country For Old Men, directed by the Coen's. He gave a very good performance in The Sea Inside, another impressive foreign film. His performance in that film may be my favorite of all of his performances. In this movie, Bardem gives a very raw and heartbreaking performance. One of the reasons this film worked so well was because of this. He really conveys a sense of deep pain and sadness. While not his best, Bardem shines brightly.brightly.I felt so uncomfortable watching this at times. It's a very depressing film, full of sadness and disturbing images. It's like a great feeling of weight hangs in the air. The whole film is plagued by this feeling, however it does let up at times. The relationship between the father and his children is really touching. If that element of the film hadn't been there. I would have hated this movie. Trust me, when I say it's hard to watch, I mean it. It's so gut wrenching at times, full of disturbing sequences and imagery. I can definitely tell this is an Irritu film. It's very much his style. His films tend to cause allot of people to feel uncomfortable. Birdman was an incredible piece of cinema, but most people-I feel I am just in this statement based on reviews I read by audiences-hated it. They didn't get it. Likewise, many people may hate this film too."Biutiful" may be depressing, full of disturbing images, and way too long, but it was an interesting film nevertheless. The imagery-while cringe worthy-did a fine job of portraying sorrow and grief. It was really painful watching this man 's life go down the drain. It was heart wrenching, yet also emotional. The direction was great and the cinematography was fantastic. The central story of the father's relationship to his children is what kept the film afloat. It has allot to say about life, death, and love. It was very dark, yet also very biutiful.

Allan C (nl) wrote: Okay, what freaked me out most about this film is realizing that Goldie Hawn is now almost 70s years old. That's just wrong. Anyhow, Mel Gibson plays a witty mullet-headed rogue in this amiable if lightweight action/comedy. He's in the FBI witness protection program when all on the same day runs into an old girlfriend, Goldie Hawn, from before he went into hiding and also the mobster he helped put away gets out of jail and is seeing revenge. Lots of chases, romantic tension and up skirt shots of Ms. Hawn ensue. The film was directed by John Badham, who I always felt was somewhat underrated for his nice balance of action and comedy in his films (i.e. this film, "The Hard Way," "Stakeout" or "Wargames"). It's kind of sad to see him mostly relegated to directing episodic TV at this point in his career. There's a solid supporting cast that includes David Carradine as the criminal seeking revenge, Bill Duke as a henchmen, Stephen Tobolowsky as a corrupt FBI agent, Joan Severance as a veterinarian and Jeff Corey as a crusty old man. Overall, this is a pretty lightweight popcorn film, but the stars make it enjoyable and worth watching.

Joanna B (kr) wrote: Truth in time How would you live if the tick of your phosphorescent death clock tattoo was constantly about to expired? Void of decades, years, months or weeks; if you were down to merely days, minutes and seconds, what would you consider important? In Time is a fascinating philosophical allegory in which time is money in the most guttural sense. In similar Sci-fi vein to director Andrew Niccol's 1997 futuristic Gattaca, the power vacuum of society is divided by means. Time is a commodity that few can afford; but greed is good and the human desire for immortality is ever present. In the near future, humans have been genetically altered. Life expectancy is no longer in the hands of fate as people are now engineered to automatically stop aging at 25, and receive merely one bonus year in which to obtain more time or there personal clocks will expire. To keep order, citizens are divided into time zones according to their means. In the working-class ghetto of Dayton, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) is a slave to minimum wage. Surviving hour-to-hour, four minutes is a steep price for a cup of coffee and the 28 year old must always run against the bright green life-expectancy timer imbedded in his forearm.Will and his 25 year-old-looking (but 50 year-old-actual) mother Rachel (Olivia Wade) struggle in debt and must pool their bare hours to pay for a decent lunch and crippling loan repayments. Scheduled to meet later, the two embark on what seems like a normal day against the grind, until Will walks into a bar and meets a mysterious stranger Henry (Matt Bomer).Carelessly flashing over a centaury on his clock, Henry is an easy target for those renegades who refuse to work for extra time opting to steal it instead, the minute men. Will selflessly intervenes to protect Henry; however the suicidal 105-year-old still jumps from a bridge but not before secretly transferring his time to Will and exposing the truth behind the illusive time scale. As prices surprisingly jump again, will rushes to share the bonus with his mother but is too late when her clock expires seconds from his touch. Disillusioned, Will and his newly acquired fortune pay the tolls to cross into the riches time zone barrier of New Greenwich to challenge and crumple the corrupt system. Attempting to blend in, Will engages in a high-stakes poker game with worth-eons-of-time wealthy business tycoon Philippe Weis (Vincent Kartheiser). After shocking those at the table with his unusually cavalier betting, Philippe introduces Will to Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried). Clearly smitten, Will is unsure if Sylvia is Philippe's wife, mother or daughter due to the human condition, but the rebellious Sylvia is observant and can see Will is one of the born to privilege as he claims and engages his advances. Will's unusual behaviour raises suspicion and he is quickly accosted by Timekeeper Raymond Leon (Cillian Murphy). Unable to explain how he lawfully acquired the 100-plus years, Will is charged with the murder and theft of Henry's time. However, perpetual survivor Will is not willing to surrender, Kidnapping Sylvia the duo re-enter the ghetto but outrunning the timekeepers, minutemen and his own clock, Will has many obstacles. Can his hostage-turned-accomplice adapt to her new lifestyle? Can he find a way to expose the systems flaws without causing more harm than good?Although it contains some wonderfully crisp visuals and flashes of theoretical brilliance, the movie falls flat; lacking internal cohesion, underdeveloped potential variables and emotional investment. Incredibly surface-oriented the contrived plot points are plagued by unanswered questions. The screenplay is muddied by cringe-worthy dialogue, a lack of direction and the feeling of filmmakers being rushes to end something that lost any semblance of meaning. Timberlake continues to demonstrate his true acting ability; Seyfried seems completely out of her depth away form her usual romantic dramas and lacks chemistry with Timberlake, Kartheiser doesn't fit well in the stuff shirt character, whilst Murphy always manages to deliver his interesting screen presence.The Verdict: Scientists may have figured out how to stop ageing and the key to immortal life, but avarice is also forever. If time is what people will murder for, I would rather age than leave a mint condition corpse.Published: The Queanbeyan AgeDate of Publication: 04/11/2011
Ola G (es) wrote: LAPD Homicide Sergeant Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), shortly after his 50th birthday, is partnered with Sergeant Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), a transfer from narcotics. Riggs is a former Special Forces soldier who lost his wife in a car accident two years prior, has turned suicidal, and has been taking his aggression out on suspects, leading to his superiors requesting his transfer. Murtaugh and Riggs quickly find themselves feuding with each other. Murtaugh is contacted by Michael Hunsaker (Tom Atkins), an old Vietnam War buddy turned banker, but before they can meet, Murtaugh learns that Hunsaker's daughter, Amanda, apparently committed suicide by jumping to her death from her apartment balcony. Autopsy reports show Amanda to have been poisoned with drain cleaner, making the case a possible homicide. Hunsaker tells Murtaugh that he was concerned about his daughter's involvement in drugs, prostitution, and pornography, and was trying to get Murtaugh to help her escape that life. Murtaugh and Riggs go to see Amanda's pimp, but find a drug lab on the premises, leading to a shootout. Riggs kills the pimp and saves Murtaugh's life, who starts to tolerate his new partner. Though the case seems closed, Riggs is aware that the only witness to Amanda's apparent suicide was Dixie, another prostitute who was working away from her normal streets. They go to see her at her home, but it explodes as they approach it. Riggs finds parts of a mercury switch from bomb debris, indicating a professional had set the bomb; children who had been nearby witnessed a man approach the house with a tattoo similar to Riggs', and Murtaugh suspects Hunsaker knows more than he has told him. The two approach Hunsaker before Amanda's funeral, where he reveals that he had previously been part of "Shadow Company," a heroin-smuggling operation run by former special forces operators from the Vietnam War, masterminded by retired General Peter McAllister (Mitchell Ryan) and his right-hand man, Mr. Joshua (Gary Busey). Hunsaker had been laundering the money, but wanted to get out, and when McAllister found out he'd contacted Murtaugh, the general had Amanda killed. As they talk, Joshua arrives in a helicopter and kills Hunsaker. Shadow Company attempts to kill Riggs in a drive-by shooting, but he is saved by a bullet-proof vest. Murtaugh and Riggs fake his death to gain the upper hand against McAllister...Variety wrote, "Lethal Weapon is a film teetering on the brink of absurdity when it gets serious, but thanks to its unrelenting energy and insistent drive, it never quite falls." Richard Schickel of Time called it "Mad Max meets The Cosby Show", saying that it works better than expected. Richard Harrington of The Washington Post described it as "a vivid, visceral reminder of just how exciting an action film can be". At The New York Times, Janet Maslin wrote, "The film is all fast action, noisy stunts and huge, often unflattering close-ups, but it packs an undeniable wallop." Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film four out of four stars, saying Donner "tops himself". "Lethal Weapon" is one of those classic buddy buddy cop movies we have seen in so many versions I cant even count them, but in this case everything falls in place and works really well due to solid direction from Richard Donner and great cinematography from Stephen Goldblatt, excellent casting of Glover and Gibson (plus the great chemistry between them), Gary Buseys bad guy Mr. Joshua and an intense and good action script even its not that much new under the sun if you dissect it. Theres plenty of great scenes between Gibson and Glover and having finally watched the "Directors Cut" version I reckon the added scenes are of value to the film in my opinion to get more flesh on the bone concerning Riggs state of mind. The action and violence is up and close, but I reckon it fits the film and structure. The dialogue has several gems as well and you cant help but love how intense Gibson are in certain scenes. "Lethal Weapon" is a great action flick that stands the test of time. It still holds up in 2016. Trivia: An alternate opening and ending were both filmed (and are available on the Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) DVD). The alternate opening featured Martin Riggs drinking alone in a bar where he is accosted by a couple of thugs who want his money. Riggs claims all of his is in the bank and tells the thugs "not to fuck with him." The thugs attack him, but Riggs easily subdues them. He is then allowed to take a free bottle of booze from the bar in exchange for never returning. Director Richard Donner felt the movie should open with a brighter look at Riggs and filmed the scene with Riggs awakening in his trailer to replace it. The alternate ending featured Riggs and Murtaugh saying good-bye to one another. Murtaugh tells Riggs he's thinking of retiring, but Riggs tells him not to.In addition to the film's theatrical release, an extended Director's Cut version was released later on DVD. The Director's Cut version is longer (117 minutes) than the original theatrical release version (110 minutes), and features additional scenes. One extended scene depicts Riggs dispatching a sniper who had been firing at children in a playground. In another scene, Riggs picks up a street-walking prostitute, but instead of having sex with her, he takes her home to watch The Three Stooges on TV, thus illustrating his loneliness following the death of his wife.Legendary stuntman Dar Robinson was killed in a motorcycle accident shortly after principal photography was finished. Director Richard Donner dedicated the film to him.Shane Black's first draft of Lethal Weapon (1987) which he wrote sometime in 1985 was very different, not just from his later drafts but also from the final movie. This first draft was 141 pages long and it was much darker, it had alternate plot parts, character scenes, action sequences and many other differences, like entire ending which had big chase scene including helicopters and a trailer truck full of cocaine which explodes over Hollywood Hills causing for cocaine to start snowing over Hollywood sign. Riggs was also much different character in this first draft than he is in the movie. Black at first thought that this draft (which was one of his first scripts) sucks so he threw it in the garbage but later changed his mind and re-worked it into the new drafts. For the longest time, Black was the only one who had copy of his first draft until he sold it on auction. This draft still remains some of his most wanted work amongst fans.The fight scene between Riggs and Joshua in the ending was originally four minutes longer, but was cut down for pacing. This explains some continuity mistakes in the final version of the scene.

Tim S (ag) wrote: To say that I was riveted by The Long Good Friday would be an understatement. I was enthralled with it. Everything about it is perfect, and it was like a thunderbolt out of the blue for me. It's true that I am indeed a fan of gangster movies, but this wasn't so much a gangster film as it was a character study with a gangster wrap-around. The characters felt so real and believable, which sounds silly and cliche'd, of course, but it's true. I've never felt so invested in characters in a gangster film before and wanted them to do well, despite being questionable people at times. The film is edited beautifully with very strong direction, has a great score, as well as an amazing cast (which includes Bob Hoskins in the lead, Helen Mirren as his wife and a small role from a young Pierce Brosnan). Needless to say, it's an amazing piece of work, and one that I look forward to revisiting.
