Henry P (kr) wrote: There's not much to say about Justice League: Dark. It's not bad, but it's not praiseworthy. It starts out with some random woman going into road rage based on a hallucination, and when the cops show up, she realizes she plowed through actual people. After that, we see a man hold his family hostage, again, under the assumption they are demons. Finally, we meet Batman (Jason O'Mara) as he saves a baby girl from her mother who threw her off a building because she thought she "gave birth to the devil," and after Batman saves the baby, the mother is found dead on the sidewalk with blood slowly spreading around her. Parents, this is not the type of Batman film you can sit your kids in front of if you want an hour's peace, unless you want them traumatized. While I wasn't really horrified by anything in this film (being an adult makes it too easy to remember they're fake), it didn't really feel R, but it got that for the blood pools and supernatural stuff. After the Justice League decides to call on supernatural heroes to fight supernatural forces, Batman goes out to get these supernatural fighters: Zatanna (Camilla Luddington), John Constantine (Matt Ryan), Deadman (Nicholas Turturro), and Jason Blood/Etrigan the Demon (Ray Chase). These four, plus Swamp Thing (Roger Cross) and Batman are the focus, and if you saw any trailers for this, the Justice League is in this as much as they are in the trailers. The characters we focus on have their moments, but character development is weak. That may have to do with the fact we barely get to know them, and despite the best efforts of Warner Animation, they still just feel thrown-together. What really killed character development was the pace: too fast. They could have given it a slightly longer run time to develop these characters (John Constantine and Zatanna had a past relationship worth exploring a little more, and Batman was really just Batman and not much else). Robert J. Kral crafts an appropriate soundtrack here, the animation looks fine, everything is there for a reason, the story is coherent, and there's a microscopic comic relief from Constantine, but not much else beyond that. There was some salty language, but about as much as you'd expect from one of Batman's blockbuster adventures. The R-rating comes from the intensity of their supernatural situations and more bloody violence than said blockbusters. Worth it if you're a fan of Constantine or are curious about the supernatural elements of the DC universe, but nothing too impressive here.

David L (jp) wrote: Epic, majestic and powerful, The Lion King is also impressively mature and certainly quite authentic. It is so well animated, very well edited and it has such a great soundtrack with Circle of Life naturally being the highlight and the score is even more powerful with King of Pride Rock being just a breathtaking piece of music. It does have its very obvious flaws ranging from a very problematic romance to an evident stupidity of its troublesome villain, but the character development is so good, the emotion is strong, it's epic in scope and it has probably the best opening scene of any film ever. It isn't one of my favorite Disney movies, but it surely is very good and very admirable.

Sarfara A (ag) wrote: Compulsion is directed by Richard Fleischer, based on novel of same name by Meyer Levin in 1956, that was itself based on the murder-trial of Leopold and Loeb. This is supposedly the first film produced by Richard D. Zanuck (son of legendary Darryl F. Zanuck). Film stars Dean Stockwell, Bradford Dillman and ORSON WELLES as attorney. Artie (Bradford) and Judd (Stockwell) run-over a boy to commit the "perfect crime". But they are suspected when police find evidence (glasses) belong to Judd. Attorney Wilk (Welles)) takes the case, saving them from capital punishment with motivational argument. Richard Fleischer maintains tone of film by preserving it in b&w, this definitely hypes the level insanity of some characters, weakness of mere folks ridiculed on the grounds of ostentatious flamboyancy by rich people. Whole cast gives applauding performance. Good editing, and excellent cinematography by William C. Mellor. NOTE: Orson Welles makes movie worth-watching, appearing almost after 1hr, film has actually passed.
Dillinger P (it) wrote: Gattaca is one of those products of the 90's that looked and still does look, utterly stunning. However its inability to trust itself and its audience means we get another by the numbers and barely invigorating story, which adds another "Ho-hum" addition to the 90's canon. Gattica is set in a not too distant future, scarily resonate of modern day, where DNA rules the world. Your ability to work in certain sectors is judged by you DNA, procreation can be manipulated and predicted and crime is now an almost impossible task to get away with. When Vincent, a not so perfect DNA specimen, manages to infiltrate Gattaca, a huge company who is pioneering space travel, he tries relentlessly to ensure he is on their top project to Titan. However just one week before launch a murder is committed in the complex, which due to the nature of the investigative route, makes Vincents life and dreams of going to space no longer a walk in the park. Its a decent enough idea and the opening 5 minutes would allow you to believe you were in for a science fiction master class. Then the films biggest flaws comes tumbling in all at once, insulting itself and the viewer simultaniously. See in the opening 5 minutes Gattaca manages to set everything up perfectly, it sets up its dystopian world, the importance of DNA and the character of Vincent in such a hypnotic and subtle way, you cant help but be drawn in, merge that with a gorgeous score and utterly pristine visuals, which have not dated, Gattaca is like a venus fly trap, luring you in before clamping shut and leaving you, well dead. For all the good work it achieves, it then goes on to ruin it all by inserting completely unwanted monologues, created so blandly by Ethan Hawke, who I actually really like, but here just is average. These monologues plague the entire piece, that at times it feels like it desperately wanted to be a film noir rather than anything else. It also ruins all its subtlety by utilizing these monologues with boring and pointless flashbacks, flashbacks that if the film got rid of, the audience would be able to create something a lot stronger in their mind. The film never really finds its footing, every time you feel its going to take off, it becomes sub par at every junction. The acting is just not very great, its bland and nobody actually feels like a character, Jude Law is the strongest of the bunch, yet again an actor I have no qualms with but he is barely doing anything memorable here. Uma Thurman is completely wasted in her role of Irene, there is zero dimension to character. Sure they all have back stories, written on a piece of paper but the characters themselves never come alive. Where Gattaca does excel is its wonderful presentation, Its visual flair allows it to stand out from the crowd, its production work allows it to seem futuristic without dating it, its polished, clean, framed brilliantly. The music is goose bump material, but this acts like its biggest weakness, the film is so clean, so polished, that it feels like they were too busy creating jaw dropping visuals, rather than have any emotional depth to the film. Gattaca is not a terrible film, its just so completely average, it promises so much and delivers so little, it has the emotional weight of a tennis ball, with performances to match. It has its moments, but ultimately its a one time watch, with zero replay value.
