(nl) wrote: A solid independent film, Mad Bastards was an entry into the 2011 Sundance Festival, and is a great character study.The film tells the story of a violent estranged father, TJ, who goes on a journey to reunite with his son Bullet. Along the way, he meets various characters and learns to let go of his violence. In the meantime, his son is struggling due to the poor parenting he's received, and his only role model is his grandfather, the town cop.What international viewers may not pick up on is the extreme reality that this story has in relation to the lifestyles and socioeconomic issues facing the indigenous population of Australia. While unflinchingly displaying these problems, it also shows situations that can be quite daunting to a white man in Australia (such as a group of Aboriginals blocking the road, which unfortunately has a reputation to mean that they will try to rob you or steal the car) to be quite harmless some of the time.A solid debut for director Brendan Fletcher.
(au) wrote: This film cleaned up at Aussie version of the Oscars in 2004, but you can't really take that with a whole heap of credibility when comparing it to other great films outside of Australian cinema.Abbie Corinsh; in her breakthrough performance, is good, very good at times, and really brings forward the confusion and dilehma of her character really well with the twists between quirkiness and a sort of dark nervous energy. However, this switch between the two moods pours out into the whole film making it frustrating viewing at times because of its uneven tone. The actin is good on almost all points, but not great. Sam Worthington broods more than he acts and doesn't show any qualities that would have suggested he'd break into the Hollywood big-time. It's a decent coming-of-age tale, but it doesn't break new ground. The story moves on quite swiftly, with seemingly little development between the almost episodic events and encounters of the main chracaters. This ambigious nature of their development (or lack of) tends to make both leads characters to becoming unlikeable at times, which left me feeling emotionally uninvolved. I had heard this was a moving film, but I never really felt one way or the other about most that was going on.It might be an Aussie gem, but I think most others would agree this is slightly above average.

(ag) wrote: It's not often that I'll admit a movie is propped up by nostalgia, but that's the only reason I can come up with for why I like Labyrinth. The story structure is muddled to say the least, there's a lot of ambiguity in what is going on, and the music is not good. The aspects that make me love it mostly center around two things. For one, Jennifer Connelly is the star. I had a massive crush on her when I was younger, and I do think she adds a lot of heart to Labyrinth. She behaves like a normal teen in the beginning of the film, and then shows some significant growth as things progress. The other great part of the film is Jim Henson's puppet work. You get to see a whole lot of genius in this film. The creatures are menacing and cute at the same time. One scene that really stood out was the hands used to make the faces. I thought that was a very creative way of making a character without even needing elaborate puppet. The companions that Sarah befriends on her journey are all the different styles of puppets that Henson had honed and perfected through the Muppets. I loved that they didn't draw from familiar characters he had used before, but invented new puppets that fit in well with the world. David Bowie is odd, and well-suited to this role, but he was never one of my favorite parts of Labyrinth. I suspect that this film would not hold up very well for someone who was new to it, but my fond memories make Labyrinth worth watching from time to time.

(mx) wrote: Fun, but dated. Plenty of good chases, just not as many as would be expected in the current era. Sally Field was incredible, I can't believe how she is still acting today with such success. The country songs (as performed by the actor who played Cletus, no less) are a true set of classics, and will always be remembered as trucking anthems.Watched on Netflix at home, October 2, 2016.
(jp) wrote: Entertaining but unambitious segments are combined to make this feature length film. The animation is solid, but less varied than Disney's previous omnibus films. There are a couple standout segments, but overall this is a very average film.

(ca) wrote: Holy crap. I'd never even heard of this before, but it's exceptional. One of John Huston's finest films, without a doubt. Even at this later stage of his career, his direction has a lot of... virility to it, even though it very much feels like a product of the best kind of 70s filmmaking. Under Huston's experienced hand, Stacy Keach, Jeff Bridges, and Susan Tyrell all do great work, and Connie Hall's cinematography is unrivaled as usual. It's a boxing film, but with a hint of that Last Picture Show-style hopelessness and grit. It sorta reminded me of that film, and Five Easy Pieces, but also some kitchen-sink films as well. And it's one of those ones that I think I enjoyed the more I think about it, which is always a nice bonus.
