(ru) wrote: This film has found its way into my so bad it's good collection. The script isn't the greatest but the sheer roller-coaster action keeps it from being boring. The simple fact of knowing the film is a mess really works in its favour, the crazy Cage performance, the story as you go, cast of knowns who come and go. This has rewatchable moments and should be destined for cult status, just don't go looking for something that critics clearly didn't find. Much better than the poor first film.

I have experience working in the Japanese countryside and this strikes me as an authentic depiction of life in rural (semi-urban) Japan. I love the sequence where the mother finally shows off her work.
(ag) wrote: Accepted is a highly flimsy, but enjoyable comedy about a high school loser, who creates a fake college in order to impress his parents, after being denied admittance to every school he's applied to. The problem: word gets out about "South Harmon Institute for Technology" and the characters are forced to educate a large group of misfits, who were also rejected, in order to keep the ruse alive. The film stars Justin Long as Bartleby Gaines, a prankster genius who has to commit to the ultimate lie, and Long completely owns this movie with perfect comedic timing and great energy. The supporting cast features Blake Lively, Lewis Black, Columbus Short, Maria Thayer, and an almost unrecognizable Jonah Hill, who nearly steals the show with his hilarious, and clearly improvised lines. The cast is for sure the strong-point here, as the premise is paper-thin and the con would never last longer than a day considering they're even sharing most of the name with a neighbouring school. Some of the comedy also suffers from feeling dated, with the cast mostly improvising their lines and that style of comedy doesn't always land as well as it should. Still, this is a highly amusing, bubblegum comedy that features a talented young cast and a really funny premise that will work if you turn your brain off!

(es) wrote: Impressive makeup, a refreshing anti-commercialism spin, and a few laugh-out-loud moments can't save this film from Jim Carrey's over-hamming, cramped sets, bloated storytelling, and uninspired direction from Ron Howard. All involved have done better. Stick with the animated classic.

(br) wrote: I loved the self-awareness behind this movie; it's capable of looking at itself critically without romanticizing or deglamorizing. The main driving force is its characters and this is a perfect example of a film where its characters can serve a dual purpose. They are both excellent thematic representations and well rounded, believable people. There's a lovely injection of humour even in the most serious bits. There's only one very minor drawback. For 2/3 of the film we follow the lives of three women, but in the last 1/3, the concentration centers on one of them while the other two are glossed over. Although it works, it would've been more satisfying to have had better balance.

(gb) wrote: There is a certain undeniable homoerotic charge in the portrait of manly emotions exhibited in Becket that kind of fulfils a certain fixation in period pieces that were being made at the time. Despite the epic grandeur of the film, from its sets to its extras, this film feels more like a deep and honest personal drama - if a little overtly melodramatic and a tad bit exaggerated. Becket is also a wonderful showcase for the two great actors Burton and O'Toole who work magnificently together and whose performances are very powerful and full of noble and genuine sentiments.
