Eric M (nl) wrote: Bill Murray is a comic genius, but it's still hard to carry an hour and a half of dialogue with a fucking elephant

(de) wrote: Jamie Bell, Michael Angarano, Allison Pill, Bill Pullman, Chris Owen, Mark Webber, Danso Gordon, Novella Nelson DIRECTED BY: Thomas Vinterberg When a young loner named Dick discovers a handgun, he finds himself strangely drawn to it despite his pacifist views. Soon he forms a secret club with other misfits in his town who collect and revere antique guns and call themselves the Dandies. But despite their firm belief in the most important Dandy rule of all - "never draw your weapons" - they eventually discover that some rules are meant to be broken. One of the oddest but yet amusing movies I have seen. It all seems very silly. But it's also so different from any film I have ever seen. I felt like I was watching a Western. Especially in watching the ending. The only thing missing was some tumble weeds blowing by. Most of the acting was good. Love Jamie Bell. Thought Michael Angarano was quite funny and quirky. I loved that they used The Zombies as their soundtrack. Great stuff. This movie is interesting and one of a kind. Should be seen.

Leanne K (ca) wrote: An average romantic comedy. Joan Cusack is wonderful, Lauren Holly, not so much.

Matt C (nl) wrote: I really enjoyed this on repeat viewing. Apparently this was written and directed by Mangold which for me is pretty impressive as it feels like the story has been taken from the sort of novel I would happily engross myself in. The performances are across the board really, really good. Stallone is somewhat of a revelation here.

Jerry S (nl) wrote: Funny, but not magnificent although. Idea is hilarious and performances are good. Fun for the whole party crew.

Douglas P (mx) wrote: Great movie but if you watch it more than once a year it will screw with your mind and turn you into a vegetable forever.

Denise G (jp) wrote: A great film. Who doesn't idolize someone when your younger? A great film for all.

Ricardo M (mx) wrote: Visual de graphic novel pr '300' com semelhante temtica violenta e ertica, porm, com mais lirismo e menos frases de efeito.

Roman P (gb) wrote: Funny but main impression is: how fast all this is coming out. Yesterday fresh, today hackneyed and yawny.

Lex W (it) wrote: A ballsy depiction of radical politics a la mode... in 1959. This idealistic film is overtly cautionary, instead of subtly bleak and dismal.

Michael T (es) wrote: Fast-moving, fun little Roger Corman B-movie.

Allan C (nl) wrote: I remember being disappointed in this film when it first came out, but rewatching now, this film really does offer a lot of pleasures for film buffs. I'll still stand by my initial impressions that this film should have been a whole lot better and was hoping for a better film, but despite a weak script by the usually reliable Pete Dexter, this film's style, look and cast are enough to carry the day. Taking a a bit of famous Los Angeles history, The LAPD's Hat Squad who were given carte blanche to keep the mob out of LA no matter what the means, as the jumping off point, the film starts with the murder of a call girl which then leads to government conspiracies and coverups. This film has all the film noir hallmarks that went into "Chinatown" but this film doesn't have that same level of gravitas when it came to balancing the character elements and the story's larger conspiracy. Despite the weak script, director Lee Tamahori brings a beautiful level of style and grace to the film, which is greatly aided by gorgeous photography by Haskell Wexler and production design by the great Richard Sylbert, who also did "Chinatown." There's also an unbelievably strong cast that includes Nick Nolte, Jennifer Connelly, Chazz Palminteri, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Melanie Griffith, Andrew McCarthy, Treat Williams, John Malkovich, Bruce Dern, Kyle Chandler, Ed Lauter, Louise Fletcher, Rob Lowe, William Petersen and Virginia Madsen. Nolte is commanding in the lead and this film served as a reminder to me of what a great actor his his. It also made me wish Nolte has let himself star in more tough guy parts, because he is a total badass in the film. He's so great at rage slowly building below the surface and then exploding. If nothing else, rewatching this film made me want to watch some more Nick Nolte films. Maybe I'll check out "Farewell to the King" again. Jennifer Connolly is also a standout as the murdered girl, who in just a few scenes manages to loom large over the entire film. And not to come down too hard on the script, it does have it's moments, like when William Peterson fears he's about to be thrown down a cliff (Mulholland Falls) and pleades, you can't do this. This is America. Nolte calmly replies, "This isn't America, Jack. This is L.A." So overall, despite an overreaching script, this film's style, cast and look manage to make it well worth watching for fans of the genre.

Magical W (ru) wrote: It's not... Terrible. But it certainly doesn't use a lot of the things it introduces as much as I'd like. Plus, it doesn't help that it's a bit muddled and doesn't make too much sense. The performers do an alright job and the effects are ok, it's just a disappointment considering how great the first film is.
