(ag) wrote: Very close to source material, just like the previous Batman/Superman film. This time it has an amazing finale between Supergirl and Darkseid. Somebody was watching a lot of Dragonball Z before this got made.
(mx) wrote: Classic underdog vs smug establishment stuff, you might think. But it's all played out in puke-slathered anti-comedy sketches better suited to no-budget YouTube videos than a multimillion-dollar film. The relentlessly (and overbearingly) quirky imagination of filmmaker Jared Hess yields diminishing returns in his third feature. Napoleon Dynamite seems perfectly well-adjusted (not to mention downright charismatic) compared to homeschooled mama's boy Benjamin Purvis in Gentlemen Broncos, the latest oddball character portrait from one-trick helmer Jared Hess. It feels almost mean-spirited to laugh at Benjamin's travails. He has done nothing to provoke them and seems incapable of fending for himself. It's unfair to blame Hess solely for condescension comedy's bad aftertaste--he's not the only perpetrator--but his particular brand is the most graceless. The comic performance of Jemaine Clement, as the writer, is the one thing to salvage from this experience. Unselfconsciously juvenile and overwhelmingly quirky, Gentlemen Broncos offers a lot of potty humor but isn't terribly funny.VERDICT: "Rent Worthy" - [Mixed to Negative Reaction] These films are only worth renting because of certain good things that are worth seeing, but are not worth paying at a theatre or the DVD to see due to bad things that overcome anything good. (Films that are rated 2.5 stars)

(br) wrote: "Simon Says" starts with five college students on summer break riding on a country road in a van driven by their stoner friend. Ever seen that before? The formulaic introduction is a taste of things to come. "Simon Says" is a by-the-numbers affair, a serial killer stalks partying twenty-somethings flick that only deviates from the recipe used since the first "Friday the 13th" in the most minor of ways.The deviation comes in the form of Crispin Glover playing what may or may not be psychopathic twins Stanley and Simon. Glover has matured as an actor into the Vincent Price of our day, chewing through scenery with remarkable overacting skill, and he can almost carry "Simon Says" on his own, but his performance is also very uneven here as he switches roles. The reveal that's being set up is one that most viewers will see coming from the very beginning of the flick, but it puts Glover in a situation that naturally makes him muddle through too many times to be believable. The rest of the cast is bland and textureless, young actors given stereotypical roles that we've all seen a hundred times and barely merit mention.Stanley and Simon like booby traps. They've filled the woods with tripwires and rusty machinery adapted from old mining equipment. In the film's most memorable scenes, scores of pick axes fly through the air when a character sets off the traps. This happens twice in the middle of the film, quite close together. There are also a few scenes involving paintball players who stumble across the twins and are done in fairly gruesomely. These characters have clearly been dropped into the film to pad it; they play no role in the story and add nothing to it but an extra ten minutes of run time and three minutes of blood. The goriest scene of the film comes, of course, at the end, when the sole surviving main character literally bursts through the corpse of the stoner to attack Stanley/Simon with a meat cleaver. This, too, has been telegraphed, and one gets the feeling that his whole flick has been too hastily thrown together by this point. Things just don't seem to have been thought through at all... and that's the overall problem with "Simon Says." It's not terrible, it's just not all that interesting. Watching it is like watching somebody follow a recipe from a cookbook; the end product might be palatable, but you know exactly what you're getting long before the meal arrives at the table."Simon Says" is a bit of slasher fluff that seems to have been designed primarily to give Crispin Glover something to do for a couple of weeks. It's "Friday the 13th" with pick axes and a southern drawl. Fans of slasher films will likely find it passable entertainment, but nothing to rave about. If you're not already fond of the genre and not already a major fan of Crispin Glover, "Simon Says" won't make you think more highly of either.

(ru) wrote: Not bad for an 80s Aussie comedy! Friels is good as Malcolm (reminds me a little of Ricky Gervais in Derek), a tram operator/inventor who is 'corrupted' by Frank. Very Australian - and very 80s, with some terrible hair/fashion! - and quite funny and charming, even when it turns into a heist film at the end, but there's no malevolence at all. Worth a watch!
(ca) wrote: To Hell And Back is a damn fine war film. Its the heroic story of actor Audie Murphy who became the most decorated soldier during WWII including recieving the medal of honor. For a film that really idolizes it main character there is alot of good war drama and great action sequences. Its a fact that Audie Murphy is the most decorated soldier of WWII So when he came home and wrote his autobiography, it was only a matter of time before it would be turned into a film. He pursued acting after the war and when To Hell and Back was being cast he tried out for the part to play himself! The producers at the time thought he was to boyish to be playing a War hero!!!! But in the end he got the part of himself. And he does a fine job at it. To Hell and Back isnt the grittiest war film ever but it sure is fun. This would be a great film to retell without the glame this one has. Watching the film its hard to swallow some of the heroics as fact, but from what ive read over the years this one seems to be pretty accurate in its facts.

The combination of top-of-the-line visual effects with the soulful tribute to where film has been brought a tear to my eye.Scorsese is one of the few "old breed" American filmmakers left in the world, and I would argue that he's the very best in the world. His films typically pull from a certain vein: purely American. His films are about American culture, history, ideals, misgivings, blunders, etc. This is a universal picture that seeks to do one thing: make the kind of cinematic magic act that the great M (C)lis would have made himself, had he been given the technology we have now.
