Aaron W (kr) wrote: Pretty lame horror which I see many of it seems. The ending has a twist to it but all in all, a pretty cheesey horror.

Ian H (br) wrote: beautifully shot, good sound. The film has a style and sense of place, but is painfully slow and lacks real depth.

Joe T (br) wrote: Asterix and Obelix weren't that bad......but there was WAY too much focus on other characters, who were not interesting at all.

Francisco L (es) wrote: Still funny, but a predictable sequel that can't bring to us nothing new comparing to the original.

Ben L (gb) wrote: Tangled is a real mile marker for Disney animation. With this film they regained prominence and seemingly stole all the originality and quality Pixar once possessed. It's a movie that follows the classic Disney Princess formula, but slowly makes the Princess herself a strong individual instead of a total damsel in distress (although this movie only takes baby steps in that direction.) Rapunzel is a goofy character that reflects some of the strange quirks one might acquire being locked in a tower for well over a decade. She gets a lot of the laughs and Mandy Moore gives her a very sweet and innocent voice. I think Zachary Levi has a good voice for the wise-cracking Flynn Rider, a definite twist from the classic strong-voiced princes of the past. Perhaps the biggest vocal highlight is Donna Murphy as Mother Gothel, who brilliantly pulls off both sweet moments and also viciously overbearing moments (sometimes within only a few sentences of one another.) The songs are tons of fun, particularly in The Snuggly Duckling with all the kindhearted thugs. My biggest complaint is that Tangled doesn't divert enough from classic Disney tropes in order to stand on its own two feet. They still have the needless animal sidekicks (Maximus actually has a role in the plot but Pascal is utterly useless just for selling toys,) they still have the same predictable story beats, and in the end the Princess still needs her man to rescue her. There's nothing particularly wrong about these things, it just makes the movie feel a little derivative. However, for any fan of Disney animation or any parent of Disney fans, watching Tangled is a must.

Daryl K (au) wrote: A jarring switch in lead actors and a heavy-handed approach to anti-war politics as simian sci-fi, are what cause the next 'Apes' installment to stumble a bit -- that, and the sometimes obvious budget reduction. Still, Charlton Heston does show up eventually, Maurice Evans remains great as Dr. Zaius, and one outlandish concept after another gets flung like poo at the audience. "Apocalyptic" is kind of an understatement for how this sequel wraps up, yet three more films would follow it in the series.

Wanda P (ag) wrote: Great sets, great style. Lots of sight gags that are supposed to be engaging, but it drags, drags, and gets boring very fast.

Theodore H (es) wrote: It's interesting that such a terribly arranged story full of unlikable and weirdly characterised figures can bring me to laughter, even when I am utterly disgusted at the horrifying script and confusingly unrelatable characters. Funny if there's nothing else you can do for an hour and a half.I wonder why Anne would agree to partake in such an offense to women everywhere and always.

Ryan V (mx) wrote: Absolutely compelling film! Fabulous plot, story line, and great representation of the actual disaster within the emotional story.

Kevin P (es) wrote: a very underrated movie.

Jon D (de) wrote: Interesting storyline with a multi-angled representation of the complexity involved in Canada's military role in Afghanistan. There are some standard war movie tropes included ... though well done ones ... and some off key characters (a Canadian general who sounds very American ... possibly because he is played by Clark Johnson, native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), and a parallel love story that feels bolted on (besides, movie characters should know that love affairs in combat zones never end well). Aside from this, the film works and works well. It has intercut "hand held" footage of the civilians and soldiers that pulls the viewer into the scenes. The storyline twists, but not to the point that viewers should feel deceived. There is humour, some of it "boy humour" that rings true to the context of the primarily male military environment. The sniper scenes - reminiscent of an American movie about snipers you may have scene - still evoke the tension of the trigger-pulling decision. There are some graphic scenes of violence and carnage that viewers will find disturbing - this is not a John Wayne movie where wounded soldiers cringe and quietly drop, but nor is it gratuitous Tarantino blood splatter; it has the feel of being as horrible as it likely was.
