Ed C (ca) wrote: One line summary: Sour romantic relationships end badly.Three stars of five. Lukewarm all the way.----------------------------------- An American film set in London, UK. The film starts at a police station where a pregnant detective reviews what went bad at a party. During the interrogations there are many flashbacks. On New Year's Eve, there's a party at a flat in London after some time at a public house. Attendees are: Dennis (soccer, very successful), Billy (soccer, team mate of Dennis, not as successful), Tanya (a waitress), Mike and Katie (American students), Kim and Brenda (friends traveling together), and Missy Dembree (an American studying in London). Early on, we see that Missy did not survive the New Year's Eve game, which was a variation on Truth or Dare. They start with ritual bloodletting (a drop or two), followed by a second ritual of smoking recreational illegal drugs. At this stage, the director has advised me of context, but my probability of liking the film is about 10%. Idiots on drugs and booze, doing Truth or Dare, a version with no prizes, but only penalties? Hm...how can this turn out well? Which characters should I find engaging? Next stop, breaking and entering plus burglary; they film it for the sake of the party. Hardly worth the downside risk. That is where Missy gets shot. More flashbacks. Mike knew Missy in LA, then Missy became attached to Dennis. More of the Truth or Dare. Still more flash backs, with a touch more clarity. Mike loves Missy, Missy loves Dennis, Dennis has left Missy and is engaged to Casey. Missy cannot take this. Mike is discouraged. The Detective has all sorts of motivations for someone causing Missy's death, and different accounts of how it happened. The interrogation-flashback-interrogation cycles continue. The detective finds more nooks and crannies of motivation and fact. How many go to jail? Does anyone get away without charges?-------Scores--------Cinematography: 7/10 Terrible in the introductory music video; hand-held nonsense. Otherwise competent.Sound: 7/10 OK, though the incidental music seems to just fill time when nothing is happening onscreen.Acting: 5/10 No one was particularly good or bad. All of them portray knee-jerk followers of modern conventions for wastrels with money. If you are looking for a study in drug-using herd animals, here it is. Matt Lanter had the most screen time and the greatest number of lines; fortunately, he was almost competent.Screenplay: 5/10 There are zero characters to root for, zero to despise, zero to embrace. The level of choppiness is too high. Linear exposition would have been more effective.

Jared S (au) wrote: Good acting and found footage storyline that chronicles the events preceding "Zero Day"... Obviously inspired by Columbine, but still just as shocking and disturbingly interesting.
Steve G (mx) wrote: Regarded by some on release as the 'Welsh Trainspotting', Twin Town follows a pair of wastrel brothers entangled in a criminal underworld of drug trafficking and bent coppers. At times brutally gritty at others hilarious. A comedic lament for Swansea.

Samuel M (ru) wrote: Se podra pensar que la primera entrega de la saga fue fruto del azar y no del buen hacer. Esta secuela demostr todo lo contrario. Si la primera nos encontrabamos un perdedor que buscaba una forma de ser alguin vlido, teniendo que enfretarse a la vida y a los que le juzgaban, ahora nos encontramos a un hombre que tiene que aprender a lidiar con el xito fortuito y con aquellos que quieren aprovecharse de l.Podramos argumentar que Rocky II no es tan excelente como su predecesora, pero lo cierto es que como su protagonista, en algunos elementos es ms madura y mejor trabajada y abandona algo de la ingenuidad de su primera parte.
Dave S (gb) wrote: The odd musical where the book is far better than the (mostly negligible) songs. Also, are we sure that Robert Morse wasn't just Dave Foley with a time machine? At any rate, he makes for a wonderfully odd leading man, flirting with just about everyone on screen except his love interest. Watch him get uncomfortably close to people at every turn, whether offering impromptu backrubs, talking too close, or just weirdly nuzzling people mid-conversation.
Ashley H (fr) wrote: Cabin in the Sky is an exquisite film. It is about a compulsive gambler who dies during a shooting but gets a second chance to reform. Ethel Waters and Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Vincente Minnelli did a great job in his directorial debut. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the great music and awesome characters. Cabin in the Sky is a must see.
