(au) wrote: A beautiful film that is subtle yet surprisingly powerful.
(fr) wrote: By now, everyone is accustom to the plot device of having seemingly separate characters being intertwined with each other somehow. Recent films include Crash, Babel, Vantage Point etc. some of the films that use this technique to tell its story can be good, even great, while some are less successful. In Search of Sex belongs to the latter category.The connection of the characters in the film is so impossible it's ridiculous. I know the saying 'truth is stranger than fiction' and somewhere out there something like this may have happened (completely unlikely though), but to have the characters related to each other in this way is not clever. It is contrived. It is a plea to the audience, saying 'ohh look at us, witty screenwriters. I bet you didn't expect this to happen, did ya?!' Granted, I didn't expect it to happen--no one would have. Why? Because of the incredulity of the circumstances.Needless to say, the writing is completely off. The characters, amazingly, have been introduced well, but they are all one-dimensional. We do get to see some dimension in a few characters, but really, the characters are either: all good, all bad, or a combination of the extremes (and I don't mean they're in between--I mean at times they are either the greatest person or the worst). What's odd is that each segment the character is allotted has a potentially interesting story to tell.The writers amalgamated 10 characters with their own stories. About 6 of those had the necessary drama to make a feature. What the movie's problem is that it tries too hard at every corner. It tries hard to create drama, be clever, be sickening. Had the writers split this into different movies, they would have had a better result.The acting also had plenty of problems. Sure, the actors are committed to their roles, but their abilities as actors are completely lacking. It's a low budget film, so the chance at getting really seasoned actors weren't promising, but still I don't think anyone could forgive the acting that went on in the movie.There isn't much to say other than it's a movie with a ridiculous premise, characters whose actions are deplorable and almost unbelievable, acting that's well below subpar, and below average writing. 1.5/10
(it) wrote: Cast your spell. Make your wish. Fear the touch. In this great horror flick that's as good and scary as 'Carrie' for revenge as its main theme, Tamara returns from the dead and dedicates her afterlife to get onto to her tormentors from an evil prank gone horribly wrong. There's plenty of bloody violence all over the place, and so do the most gruesome moments that would have made the audience faint. Starring the great acting performances by Jenna Dewan, Katie Stuart, Chad Faust, and Matthew Marsden.

(gb) wrote: Oh boy, where to start?First off, this does NOT seem like an Otomo. At All. I was expecting something a bit more gritty(and violent), and action packed. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But I really missed the graphic violence and action that made Akira so great. This film also brags about having such a high budget, but nothing about it(animation-wise) was particularly impressive. The vehicles were well done, but there seemed to be an overuse of 3d shots. Which also made Akira so much more impressive, it had better looking animation, character,effects and scenes, and didn't use as much technology. Funny how that works right?Not much to say about the plot, but it was rather boring and average. I watched half of the film with the Japanese dub, and as I started to watch the English dub, I knew I was going to regret it knowing that Anna Paquin was lending her voice to the movie. And boy was I right. The English dub was pretty bad, but Paquin made it beyond horrible and atrocious. She was voicing an boy(who was English), with her own? Scottish accent. I hated her voice work enough in Laputa, but this was just plain awful.

Aprs avoir vol du matos de l'arme amricaine, le groupe de l'Automne men par Octobre se fait prendre en chasse, certains membres meurent et Octobre y perd la vue, s'en suit un vrai chamboulement au sein de l'organisation !Trs ax sur la politique avec des dialogues qui frisent parfois la posie abstraite, le film ne renie pas son ct "pink" pour autant avec des scnes de sexe ayant parfois lieues des moments les plus inattendues, et en plus, ce niveau l, y'a plus de hirarchie qui tienne, croire que a les lient plus que leur engagement !!!! Malgr quelques lments qui nous font rester en terrain connu, c'est quand mme un film assez trange par moment et le dmarque des autres productions du genre, trs travaill, film magnifiquement et trs bonne utilisation du noir et blanc et des couleurs ! "Ecstasy of the angels" n'est pas un film comme les autres et d'autres films aimeraient bien tre comme celui-l !

Their idyll is interrupted by a sexy archaeologist who has come there to work on a dig. an odd romantic movie, you will see them naked and making love all the time, have seen it long time ago. didn't liked it much.
