(au) wrote: So poorly written. Like most films in Hollywood, it was made to generate $$ for the producers. It is void of any integrity whatsoever. Simply unwatchable.

(au) wrote: It was semi-intentional that I watched this shortly after Hitchcock's Rope because like Rope, The Silent House appears as though it is shot in one continuous take. Hitchcock's limitation was the time in which he lived, he simply wasn't able to film for much longer than ten minutes in one continuous take. It seems as though The Silent House's claims are false as well, possibly due to the type of camera their modest budget afforded them. The cuts are well hidden, lighting being the most apparent mask so this can at least claim to have the appearance of a single take film. Either way this is a 'real-time' horror film and it thrives within the minimalist setting and production. The camera work, in terms of movement, is inventive and consistently interesting. At various points we see the action reflected in a mirror or in one excellent sequence through the lens of a polaroid camera, only seeing light when the camera flashes. It makes for a nerve-wracking moment. In fact this is quite a scary film, it certainly ruffled me more than any film has done for a while. That said it isn't perfect, despite this being a very good horror film for the most part it is mainly about the atmosphere and production, there is very little in terms of plot and when the plot does begin to thicken things do start to fall apart a bit. In fact once you start to try to make sense of the plot or the characters actions it begins to look less impressive. It is best viewed simply as a low budget chiller which has some effective scares and a convincingly ominous atmosphere.
(au) wrote: I didn't wait long enough, apparently, to finally see this movie. The cast is very strong, but the story is weak. The directing is almost as weak. Too bad too as this was a wasted opportunity. Hex is a very strong, very interesting character. Like Marvel's Ghost Rider, I'm not sure why studios chose weak approaches to these kinds of characters. There is almost no development of anyone in this film. The short origin explanation at the beginning is all the audience gets, presumably because the rest of the story is just too strong to bog it down with character development. Sigh.

(es) wrote: This movie was awesome, a black comedy mixed with crime, it was such an excellent idea! This movie is considered as a key for reviving Robert Downy Jr's career that was almost done after his drug problems but he acted so remarkably that we could believe that he'd ever done this kind of job before. In the movie, Downey Jr's a guy that just cannot handle his situation and problems, in simple words it's kind of a comic film-noir. Even the title of the movie is so nice: kiss kiss bang bang!

(mx) wrote: This movie has such a wonderful heartfelt sincerity. I loved all the characters and quickly became emotionally invested in their lives. This movie is guaranteed to invoke a massive cry session in my house. Definitely a favorite "chick-flick"!
(nl) wrote: A jaw-dropping mess of a zombie film that was tossed from director to director during production and never really was properly completed. And that's what makes it a very special and rare sort of zombie flick. You get some fog-shrouded Lucio Fulci doom-laden zombie scenes and some pulpy cartoonish poorly scripted Bruno Mattei scenes, and lots of glaring inconsistencies to point out at a heckling party. The flying zombie head is the cherry on top of this gloriously insane piece of 80s schlock.

(it) wrote: Spike Jonze has proven himself worthy of acclaim in the past with films like being john malkovich and adaptation and hes proven himself after with her but in my opinion this is his finest work. No other film in history that i have seen embodies so well the mind set of a child and how their feelings effect their imagination. Yes there are parts that make no sense but i feel that it is done intentionally because as kids we feel and do things that make no sense which is why this film is so ,incredible. It takes it's source material which is like a 30 or so page childrens book and develops this complex, dramatic, emotionally in tune film the portrays some of the most realistic emotions and characters ive ever seen. Kids may not know whats going on and probably not even most adults but if your an analytical human being that loves digging into peoples emotions or a film buff in general i cannot recommend this enough.
(de) wrote: Considered to be a bit of a cult classic, this is a decent sci-fi film that unfortunately hasn't aged well. It deals with environmental issues which is admirable, but the story is flawed. It's directed by the SFX master who did "2001: A Space Odyssey", "Blade Runner" and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" so it's interesting to see what he does here. Bruce Dern gives an engaging performance and made it worth watching for me. Give it a try if your a fan of Sci-fi.

(jp) wrote: "Doubt", written and directed by John Patrick Shanley, is a fantastic film. However, few things keep this movie from greatness. First off, I would like to point out that the screenplay, adapted from the Broadway play, is fantastic. Although I believe some moral issues of the movie could have been more abundant, it was well written and left a big impact. However, Shanley's directorial efforts leave much to be desired. Although Shanley is able to get the best of his all-star cast anchored by a fantastic performance by Meryl Streep, he has difficulties with pacing. The main problem this film faces is the pacing and It takes your interest for granted. For about the first thirty minutes of the film, nothing of interest, or necessity happens. This caused me to withdraw from the film early on. Finally, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I thought the cinematography by Roger Deakins really distracts from the film, and that is difficult for me to say considering that roger Deakins is my favorite cinematographer. Mainly the diagonal camera shots add nothing to the film while distracting me from the actual content.In conclusion, doubt has a really great screenplay that never reached its full potential due to below-average directing. However, what won't be forgotten about this film is the four main performances. And for that reason alone, you should check this movie out! 3.5 stars
