(au) wrote: Heartwarming, but tired cliches throughout. Misses the direction that we have come to expect from Clint Eastwood movies that he usually commands for himself. Actors lack emotional depth and writing meanders w/o Eastwood holding the movie accountable in his command.
(de) wrote: Harrowing, grotesque, earnest, and featuring perfect performances from Ejiofor, Fassbender, and Nyong'o, Steve McQueen's "12 Years A Slave" is an unwaveringly powerful look at the darkest depths humanity can stoop to.
(fr) wrote: My love of the dhoom series saved me from hating this movie, but I was still disappointed. Dhoom 1 and 2 had fun and style with mechanics and realistic events. Not like riding a motorcycle on top of a rope. I think that the director of the first two should have directed this one instead of archara. This director had no idea how to portray Ali or jay. This bad guy had no style.

(au) wrote: How many foreign aid workers does it take to extract a big, bulbous body from a drinking well?Good question, especially when dealing with a war torn, mid-nineties Bosnia. Benecio Del Toro is the gruff but sentimental leader land-rovering around the mine-filled countryside, helping the locals any which way he can. A hilarious Tim Robbins, a dead pan interpreter, a fresh newbie, an ex-flame, and small village boy are along for the seemingly endless drives, searching for a rope. Yup, a rope.Whilst all this seems rather ridiculous, and there certainly are comedic moments, this is really a dark stab at war ravaged survival at its bleakest. Trying to bring some semblance of order, the aid gang encounters endless roadblocks of various kinds, nationalities and priorities."A Perfect Day" is a terrific film, which uses absurdist situations to lighten the mood, yet never strays from the real horrors of the situation at hand. The perfect, and absolutely apt ending seals the deal.- hipCRANK
(us) wrote: Written and directed by David Von Ancken (TV's Oz, Without a Trace and The Vampire Diaries), and funded by Mel Gibson. This revisionist western is a sparse and it's main focus is an old fashioned game of cat and mouse. It's the sort of film that wouldn't have looked out of place as a spaghetti western, but for a low budget film, it's professionally made and has two strong and compelling leads. Set sometime after the American Civil War in 1868, it has the mysterious Gideon (Pierce Brosnan), on the run from a posse led by former Confederate officer Colonel Morsman Carver (Liam Neeson), who is travelling with Pope (Robert Baker), Hayes (Michael Wincott), Parsons (Ed Lauter) and the Kid (John Robinson). They're all trying to capture Gideon as part of a bounty operation. However, Gideon proves to be a hard man to try and find, and he's a man who's not going to give in without a fight, and he uses the land and hostile terrain as his battlefield, using what he can to stand up to Carver and his men, but Carver knows Gideon all too well. It's a dark and brooding western, it does sag a bit in the middle, but the opening chase in the snowy wilderness and mountains is very suspenseful. It also benefits from some lavish yet focused camerawork by John Toll (Braveheart (1995). But, it has some very good performances from Neeson and Brosnan.

(ca) wrote: This is an okay thriller... a little boring, but it does pick up in the end. I absolutely loved Hugh Grant in this - a more serious role apart from his other comedic roles. I actually had to rewatch this movie in order to understand it a little better - it lost me the first time I tried watching it. But overall, it's a nice watch, but not like, an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
(it) wrote: For its time this film was unmatched in its execution, though its conception was one in a long line of thematic whodunit films. Bava deviates from this classic structure by introducing a body count, and takes his time in showing the death scenes, in all their gory glory. While later slasher films were happy to leave the killer's motivations to mental disease, revenge fantasies, and a criminal disposition, this film shows that the killer is trying to keep a secret. Still, each of these model's killings is perpetrated in sick detail, each murder different from the next. They range from a fire poker torture session, to drowning, to eye gouging, which usually isn't conducive to murder mysteries. This may be the first instance where the promise of gruesome death overshadows catching the killer. There are some really great scenes, especially the first death scene in the warehouse, which borrows heavily from Welles' "Touch of Evil" in its choice of lighting. The ending was a little anti-climactic, but the rest of the film was as fresh and gritty as any slasher film, while still being stylish.
