(it) wrote: A haunting and ambiguity-laden paranormal thriller, PERSONAL SHOPPER strikes an occasionally brilliant, occasionally uneasy balance between horror and art-house fare. There's so much about the movie that is legitimately wonderful; the mood conjured up by director Assayas (via strong cinematography and effective sound design) is unimpeachable, recalling the subtle chills of things like THE INNOCENTS and THE CHANGELING, while also offering up a truly rich psychological portrait of an enormously complex young woman. Kristen Stewart delivers a performance here that can only be described as her finest hour, and one of the finest turns of the year so far; she absolutely nails this role, imbuing her tightly-wound and adrift character with an effortless humanity, nuance, and sense of loss which makes her a very compelling figure to follow. Where the movie falters slightly for me (and to be honest, I'm of two minds about this) is in the way it seems almost unwilling - or unable - to fully embrace its genre; there are a handful of moments that are certifiably chilling and spooky, and yet Assayas never goes all the way. Despite the paranormal being depicted as a real thing in the story, he resists indulging the conventions. I genuinely believe that if the movie had 5 or 10% more genre "sauce," more oomph, I'd be absolutely raving about it right now instead of struggling with my feelings a bit. It's so close to being a phenomenal supernatural yarn/character study. The film ends strong, though, on an unsettling and thought-provoking note that I'm sure will leave many cold, but which filled me with fascinating questions with which to wrestle. It's more an intellectual exercise than a visceral one, so people hoping for lots of jolts and shocks may walk away disappointed. I can already tell this is a movie that's going to gnaw at me, and despite the ways in which I didn't find it conventionally satisfying, I'm very glad it left me with much on which to chew.

(us) wrote: An antiquated and oddly poor musical, despite its excellent reviews. The Astaire-Hepburn chemistry is weak, the music is poor and the plot thin.
(ru) wrote: The Quatermass Xperiment was one of the first of the now famous Hammer Horror films. This genre of horror injected new life into a genre that somehow lost its horrifying appeal. The Quatermass Xperiment was aired as serials before it was adapted into a full blown production. The result is a tense, atmosphere Sci Fi horror picture that boasts some impressive performances and effective chills. This film set the standards for a new genre of horror, the Hammer Horror genre. The film has everything you'd expect from a horror film of this period and established the Hammer films as a standout brand for fans that enjoyed more modern twist of the classics of the 1930's. This film succeeds on many levels and it is a definite must see for genre fans. This film spawned a new breed of horror film, and it's one of the defining pictures of Hammer Studios. This film brought some much needed originality to the genre and it is a film that is entertaining from start to finish and relies on a well executed story to thrill the viewer. I've seen quite a few of the Hammer films, and the Quatermass Xperiment is one of the finest examples of revamped horror of the 1950's. If you're looking for a well made Sci Fi horror film, then give this one a shot. If you haven't seen this one yet, then seek this one out as it is a great genre classic that will delight genre fans looking for the right amount of Sci Fi and horror elements in one film. The genre would have more films, and Hammer would assume a permanent place in horror history. If you're new to Hammer horror, this is a perfect place to start.
