Jack S (it) wrote: Typical "Teens in an isolated location" slasher, but a couple of things stood out. I have NEVER seen a film of this type feature TEN different teenage characters. The Asian, the fat kid, the cheerleader, the "emo" kid, the handsome loner, the jock, the token black guy, the deaf girl?, the good guy, AND the girl next door. Not only were there WAY too many characters (many of whom were completely unexplained and left off screen for several minutes at a time, only reappearing just in time to be killed), but you have to wait until 55 minutes into the film for one of them to finally kick the bucket. 55 minutes!!! 55!!! The movie is only 86 minutes long! It really reached a new level of terrible. A typical element of these types of films is the fact that the characters make stupid decisions on how to handle a crisis (as discussed in "The Cabin in the Woods"), but there is just NO WAY anyone would ever react the way the students did. At all. Never. Couldn't happen. I also have to point out that the existence of the carnival was completely off topic for the film. They never explained why there was a carnival in the middle of nowhere, and also, why it was deserted yet fully operational. A positive would definitely be the fact that the name of the high school referenced appropriate Greek mythology, and also the ending, while predictable, at least made an effort to be unique.

Un documental sobre el proceso alquimico de la creacion del vino, la conexion con la pachamama y la evolucion personal. *inserte reverencia de rodillas hacia Maynard aqui*

Michelle E (jp) wrote: Not bad for a low-budget zombie movie. good use of cameras angles and lighting, as well of plenty of gore, to keep you scared.....which compensates for the mediocre acting. The ending was interesting....trying to reconnect with your zombie son. Ok?

Jorge I (de) wrote: I think the main problem with the movie isn't the movie, it's that people are going in expecting a thriller instead of a drama, Yes the major plot points could be covered in 5 minutes... but that's not the point of drama. your average thriller is about things that happen and happen to have people in them. this movie is about the people and how they feel and cope when something momentous happens. if you appreciate that you'll appreciate the movie better, or not watch it cos it's not something that appeals to you.. and that's fair enough.As far as the film goes, Michelle Williams carries it well. The accent's fine and the various states she goes through as she tries to deal with what has happened never feel you leaving disconnected or not understanding how she got there.

Dustin B (jp) wrote: Denzel Washington gives a nuanced, menacing, academy award winning performance as a dirty cop in 'Training Day'. Fans of 'Collateral' and crime dramas will enjoy this story of violence and corruption.

James G (es) wrote: Very good film with deep topic.

Kevin M (ca) wrote: Call me crazy, but when you have arguably the greatest athlete and basketball player of all-time with men like Patrick Ewing, Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley and Larry Johnson, you know it's bound to be the greatest film of all-time! Their performances were so charismatic and light hearted, they deserve Oscars at the maximum and Screen Actors Guild awards at minimum. Keep them away from the Razzie award! That already said, the soundtrack has a lot to offer, with a lot of inspirational and angelic tracks from Coolio, R.Kelly, Seal, All 4 One, and Monica that all have a small to big hints of gospel music in it that perfectly fits the tone of the film. And for the time of 1996 and today, the animation holds up perfectly. Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes look very crisp and very well done. The production and directing could not get any better with Joe Pytka and Ivan Reitman working at the helm together. James Newton Howard provides a true-to-the-Looney Tunes score that you could not confuse with anything else. The costumes for the film were one of the best elements about the film considerng all the Air Jordans in the film and the Tune Squad uniforms provide for MJ, Bill Murray and Wayne Knight. The script was very cohesiveand had a "feel good" vibe to it. James Newton Howard creates a musical score that keeps the essence of the Looney Tunes alive. It really stands out on its own in a positive light to where it can not be confused with anything else and stand on its own in a very good way. This film holds nothing back and fires on all cylinders with extreme prejudice towards lack of quality

Enaid N (br) wrote: What the hell did I just watch?!?! The first half drove me nuts with that crazy woman. Why do people fall in love after like a week? I don't get it. Then he becomes a crazy overly possessive, nut bag. Why she put up with that, I will never know. I know she loved him and all, but to change everything about her? NA! Hell no! And how she fall out that window? Window about a foot thick with a foot ledge around it and she just fall out like that? Come on!!! Very glad this movie is over, but I want my 2 hours back, that I wasted watching it.

Patrick W (mx) wrote: Powerful story about a man's dedication to his country and what war can do to someone once they come home. Incredibly well acted by Bradley Cooper and the direction from Clint Eastwood sets this film above many of his others. Can be difficult to watch at times because war is very rough but this one is definitely recommended.

Mark R (br) wrote: This is a real gem of a movie. I read the book a year or so ago and since then two others in the Easy Rawlins series. This movie is exceptionally faithful to the book in both substance and style. It annoys me that everyone seems to want to make this a race movie when it is really a good mystery set against the backdrop of racism and abuse, much like the great historical novels tell a good story with the historical backdrop. It is a shame that this movie did not launch a franchise.
