(es) wrote: Fun, if a bit flawed. The major thing I can say for it is, at least, that the plot of the first is not exactly recycled as such, though a version of it comes up with a twist. The animation was again spectacular, especially in the musical sequences. Plus, there were some good gags, and set pieces, and a relevant environmental message. Overall, it was a hoot that I enjoyed.As I said, however, it was not without problems. For starters, none of the songs were really as memorable than those of the first film (I distinctly recalled "Hot Wings" from the first clearly after watching the film), and the plot has some issues. It seems to try to do so much that, in the end, a lot of the side characters don't get nearly enough screen time, and subplots came up and then seemed to be forgotten 10 minutes later (most noticeably the plot line involving Roberto and Jewel, and the one dealing with the rivalry with the scarlet macaws). Not film-ruining, perhaps, but it still could have done with a bit of a cut-down on the initial build-up, or an extra half hour or so to let everything breathe and resolve better.Ultimately, I did enjoy it a lot, but at the same time, I can't see myself recommending it as readily as the original. It's not as bad or unnecessary as some sequels end up being, at least, and if you can overlook the fact that it's not perfect, either as a film or as a sequel to Rio, then you'll no doubt find it enjoyable.

This very informative and incisive documentary details the history of Pakistan which was baptized in the blood of partition, leading to a decades long standoff with India, especially on the subject of Kandahar. With the country forever being on a war footing, the military has never been far from power, even with a civilian prime minister. With 25% of the budget being allocated to the military, little is given over to basic services including education. That is exacerbated by the wars in neighboring Afghanistan, as the money flows from the United States to support dictators in power who support the party line. That makes any struggle for democracy an uphill battle. For that to happen, the citizenry must be educated but right now that slack is picked up by the madrassas who tend to err on the side of fanatacism. Into that gap stepped Benazir Bhutto, appointed ahead of her brothers to be her father's political heir(her political heir is her son, not one of her two older daughters) which is huge in a country where honor killings are commonplace. Even when she became prime minister, change was slow, as she was eventually removed from power, not once but twice. And on returning from exile in 2007, she realized the necessity of her actions, even while knowing what the cost could be. Throughout "Bhutto," Benazir's disembodied voice is heard from an interview, giving the feel of her speaking from beyond the grave. While the documentary verges on hagiography, it also allows a remarkable range of voices to be heard, including different factions within her family(fractured but not on King Lear level). Even former President Pervez Musharraf has his say. And I guess you cannot bring up the 60's without the rock and roll cliches, can you?

La bonne nouvelle dans l'histoire, c'est que le film ne parvient pas a faire pire que le livre et, plutot que d'affadir encore le propos en tentant de coller au plus pres a sa source, prend le parti d'inverser les tendances. A savoir qu'il s'abstient de verser dans le deballage complaisant de details sordides durant sa premiere heure, et se cloture sur une vingtaine de minutes de gros bourrinage dans les regles de l'art. Un choix qui s'eloigne pas mal du synopsis de base ( ce dont on fait facilement abstraction, vu la faiblesse de ce dernier. Une esquive assez finaude qui permet d'adapter un gros succes commercial - non merite - sans prendre de risques, mais n'accouche finalement que d'un film moyen dans tous les sens du terme (intrigue simplifiee, action previsible, "happy-end" inopportun et acteurs difficilement audibles). Sur base d'un bouquin bourre de tels defauts, ce n'est finalement pas si mal...

(ag) wrote: Terribly dated visual effects, a by-the-numbers plot, strange pacing issues, stale performances, and not a single scare to be found; Alligator breaks all the horror/creature feature rules for quality. Despite literally everything going against it, Alligator remains mildly entertaining in an awkward "Godzilla eats children" sort of a way. Tell me you don't want to see a wedding interrupted by an alligator the size of a car and I'll call you a liar.Not recommended unless you are really scraping the bottom of your "films to see" list, even the, there are only moments of pure schlocky fun in store.

(ru) wrote: The premise, that high school is more perilous than a life of espionage, is witty and full of potential. But Newman makes that case by staging his car chases and fight scenes with as much sense of drama as eighth-period trig. The film settles into a time-honored groove of so many forgettable juvenile comedies before it. The film pokes fun at teen movies, but it also adopts many of the same clichs and stereotypes, resulting in a high-school flick that is both knowing and formulaic at the same time. Barely Lethal is clearly confused about its intended audience, starting with the icky title, a pun on the porn label that selects and photographs models to emphasize their youth. Once in a while, the film does flash some unexpected wit. This mashup of a teenage assassin lark and high school misfit comedy misses the chance to add a supercool heroine to pop culture. Barely Lethal has some laughs, and will probably serve nicely as a movie you can land on for a few minutes when it shows up on cable. But it slides into the rote generic-teen-comedy mode too soon to be anything more. The film becomes discouragingly harmless, settling into a time-honored groove of so many forgettable juvenile comedies before it. You're better off watching Kingsman and The Breakfast Club back to back and calling it a night. Fairly amusing, but more a rough-draft for a high concept high school comedy than a finished film.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)
