(au) wrote: Beautiful to watch, a deep exploration of infidelity and the consequences it has, whilst Olivia Thirlby is the object of desire and stumbles her way into many's affections, appearing naive and unknowing. I really enjoyed the character development, and a good cast overall.
(us) wrote: A young wife in a stagnant marriage is excited by the possibility of romance with a stranger. Sarah Polley delivers a capable tale, told in warm colors and cool music, of awakening, forbidden love, if w/o anything truly different to bring to the table. Michelle Williams carries the thing almost solely with the use of her big eyes, although the rest of the cast is competent enough. Seth Rogan is good, too, and nowhere near as annoying as he usually is.
(fr) wrote: Honest, modern, and realistic story of two people, both of whom have issues to resolve, and who somewhat unexpectedly meet one night and decide to hang out together and talk. - in Stuck Between Stations you could say there is no romance, rather dialog that might lead to one between two people who were acquaintances way back 7 years ago in High School, and now are getting to know each other. This is probably a movie you will either really like or discount all together, as it's just dialog between two people.

(ru) wrote: A story about an Oirin trying to make it to the top. Somewhat thin storyline, but the amazing visuals and unique style make up for it. Great use of a modern soundtrack against the backdrop of Edo Japan too.
(gb) wrote: Interesting Spanish ensemble comedy revolving around the lives of five mothers (the queens) and their gay sons. Each of the characters' stories intertwine and eventually meet up at the finale, a mass gay wedding to celebrate Spain's new marriage laws. There are surfeit characters to follow and it's often difficult to remember who is who, but overall it's a fine comedy without the usual cliches and exaggerated acting.

(mx) wrote: On the hotbead of the late 80's popularity of Kevin Kline and the early 90's indie scene, comes a cast of mostly unbelievable characters that come together to make a fun dark comedy. Lawrence Kasdan, who had recenly had a decent run with The Big Chill, Silverado and The Accidental Tourist, weaves a nice dark comic tale. The entire cast really shines here. Kevin is Kevin, as always, but Tracy Ullman is great and William Hurt and Keanu Reeves steal the show as two braindead drug addicts hired to do the dirty deed, or rather finish the job. The story and dialogue is relatively straightforward and relies mainly on performance for the comic relief. Fortunately, most of the time it works. Another fun score from James Horner, who would become a major player in the future, hot off his work with Field Of Dreams. It keeps the story comedic and doesn't overpower the story. Not much to say on the cinematography really. It looks good but nothing really to write home about. In the end, this movie, the situations and outcome are totally unbelievable, but if you suspend your disbelief for an hour and a half you'll have a good time and maybe get a few laughs. Worth a rent.
(ru) wrote: Based upon the novel by Frederick Forsyth, The Dogs of War was released in 1980 and was directed by John Irvin, who is better known as the director of films like Next of Kin, Raw Deal, and Hamburger Hill. The film stars Christopher Walken as a former mercenary for hire who is coaxed into going on a reconnaissance mission to the fictional African nation of the Republic of Zangaro in order to get information about a violent leader there named President Zimba for a wealthy bureaucrat. After acquiring and delivering the information, he and his cohorts are paid to go back into Zangaro and take Kimba out of power by any means necessary. On the surface, The Dogs of War functions as a sort of Rambo-type action movie in the third act, leaving the first two acts feeling like pointless setup. We're under the impression at first that the film is going to be a character study of some kind, or perhaps even a revenge story. We learn a great deal about Walken's character, especially as it pertains to his relationship with his ex-wife. The focus is so strongly planted on Walken's character that the other members of his company, who come into play much later in the story, have little to no build up. We virtually know nothing about them other than their abilities in combat. It's not that the film is tonally all over the place, it's that the story never finds two feet to stand on by sticking to one idea. There are some strong points though, such as Jack Cardiff's cinematography and Walken's performance. Both are quite strong, but there's nothing overly memorable about the story itself. The mission to go after President Kimba in the third act is also handled quite well. It's actually the most engaging portion of the entire film. Unfortunately, it's followed up with an ending that comes directly out of left field without any proper setup for it. It seems as if the film wants to make a statement, but forgot to organize itself enough to make it properly. It's simply a confused movie with little to nothing to invest in, as if the important pieces to make it work were chopped out. It's watchable at certain times, but it feels incomplete.

(es) wrote: Jack Palance stole the show for me, his creepy portrayal of an Edgar Allen Poe fanatic as this wired, jittery fellow who drank a few thousand too many cups of coffee is this nervous oddball is so far from the normal quiet, calm and collected Palance I know and love.
(br) wrote: Never boring, never cheesy and always punchy, Lethal Weapon deserves its status as one of the all time classic action films. Lethal Weapon boasts quotable dialogue which is delivered brilliantly by Gibson and Glover. It refuses to partake in the modern day action cliche of shaky cam, favouring easy-watching well choreographed car chases, shootouts and fights. It's not the best Christmas action flick out there (thank you Die Hard), but it's certainly a complete package.
(au) wrote: The physical comedy fan in me absolutely adores this high-quality work from Chaplin. He truly was a genius and created so many hilarious situations that he makes even funnier with his wacky performance. I loved the inventive way he maintained the traditional silent comedy but injected sound sparingly. It punctuated a few jokes perfectly. I think, while some of the comedy vignettes were better in Modern Times than in City Lights (the other Chaplin film I've seen,) the underlying story was stronger in the latter. I must admit I came close to losing interest with this one. Luckily, the next big comedy sequence would roll around and drag me back in. Overall, Modern Times had some ups and downs. I definitely enjoyed it, and certain moments were laugh out loud hilarious. But, despite my general enjoyment of the silent films I've seen, I doubt any will become favorites for me.
(nl) wrote: WHAT I LIKED: It's fast paced, luxurious and well-scored cinema that offers bags of mystery and smiles. The characters are brought to life well with great acting too, but mainly it's pure, simple indulgence.WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Except simple it isn't, for the confusing plot and constant flitting about mean it looses impact. That's a particular problem where the tone is concerend; one minute it's tense, another it's dull and stagnant, and as a result it's all actually rather dissengaging overall.VERDICT: I imagine 'Now See Me' rather like a stereotypical bimbo... dazzling and exciting on the outside, but dull as dishwater on the inside. Shame it managed to fool so many great stars.
