(kr) wrote: This is by far the worst horror movie I've seen for a while...it's one thing to love Fulci...but this is no excuse for everything...against this movie Fulcis shocker seem the depths of the godfather....terrible...and I hardly remember characters acting senseless like here...this is so unbelievable maybe you should see on your own...
(au) wrote: The premise was ideal... However, the pace caused the premise to be washed up in the plot. The plot also was over emphasized and the characters felt crammed by a script with too many motives and incomplete thoughts. Skip it.

(nl) wrote: Can we pray?"A series of friends led by a psychologist decide to take a couple's retreat to the Colorado mountains to enjoy the local scenery and rebuild their marriages. Each ugly aspect of their relationships unfolds in front of each other bringing some couples closer together and tearing others apart."If she ain't cooking grits you ain't got nothing to worry about."Tyler Perry, director of Diary of a Mad Black Woman, I Can Do Bad All by Myself, For Better or Worse, The Single Mom's Club, Good Deeds, and Meet the Browns, delivers Why did I get Married? The storyline for this picture is very well written and the script and character development was first rate. The settings were perfect as was the character interactions. The acting was solid and the cast includes Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Malik Yoba, Tasha Smith, and Richard Jones."You belong in the kitchen.""And you belong on a corner. Need a pimp?"I came across this on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. I enjoy Tyler Perry movies for the most part and this was one of his better movies. The characters were very well thought out and written and the movie was worth following. I do recommend catching this Tyler Perry film."I hope he's dead."Grade: B
(gb) wrote: This is supposedly a true story, I wonder if the true story were influenced by Sister Act 2 and Dangerous minds, as this seems to be a mash-up of these two mediocre films. This has Hilary Swank in it who is a good actress despite how cringe-worthy some of her scenes in this are.
(br) wrote: This film is as unimaginative and generic as it gets. It does however get two things right. Excellent death scenes and Crispin Glover plays a good psychopath. Worth a watch I guess, but definently doesn't demand repeated viewings.
(es) wrote: Faithful and rich adaptation of Forster's debut novel, it has none of the fluffiness of Merchant Ivory, nor the largesse of Lean's Passage to India. It is just right, with a cast to dream of. A mixture of comedy and tragedy puts a lot of viewers off, but knowing that those two mix in real life makes this one of my favorite and spot on Forster Adaptations. Not great cinematically, but it doesn't need to be, for the story comes first.
(it) wrote: I didn't enjoy this one as much as their cross-genre films which mix in horror elements. The pair are in Algeria looking for a famed wrestler when they are mistaken for spies by some Arabs. They are chased into the Legion's headquarters and are soon signed up for duty. They unwittingly unravel a traitor's plot, a sargent who has been working with the Arabs to hamper the development of a rail line though the country. Not surprisingly there was a lot of anti-Arab sentiment even this long ago coming from Hollywood.
(br) wrote: I did not view Gimme Shelter as a Rolling Stones fan. I am not a fan of the band, and think they are actually the most overrated and overhyped band that ever walked the face of this earth. But I did enjoy this documentary. The film is less about a Stones concert and more about what happened during the concert and also showcases the end of an era. The hippie peace and love movement was slowly coming to an end during this period, and the murder during this show by the Hells Angels pretty much put the nail in the coffin. What I came away thinking about this documentary is. The Rolling Stones cheaped out hiring the Hells Angels for security at the show. Most likely in exchange for some drugs and partying and what resulted is typical animalistic behavior by the infamous biker gang. To have absolutely no respect for human life by not only killing someone, but killing them in front of thousands of people in the middle of concert really is something. A great documentary.
(au) wrote: Not the greatest road movie story ever told, but the character driven story is appealing enough even though the characters themselves are not appealing at all.
