From the Earth to the Moon torrent reviews
(ag) wrote: As a Apple fangirl, I have to say, this film was awesome. Or as one reviewer put it, " a fantastic slab of previously unseen geek porn."
(ca) wrote: There is a couple good laughs, but it's hard to make a movie centered around someone that you hope you never meet in your lifetime because he might steal your car, your girlfriend, your money, your self-respect, and your dignity. I just wish Tucker Max didn't exist.
(gb) wrote: A lot harder hitting than i expected from the title and the summery, and to think it was based on a true story even more remarkable. This would not have worked without the lead Kimani playing his part so well, having his warmth and charm come off the screen, as well as his struggles and difficulties.
(mx) wrote: A coming-of-age story about the friendship between two kids against the backdrop of social change in Chile - quite good!
(kr) wrote: Better than the first. At least this one has a decent story line. However, I really don't like Tom Berenger's character. That's probably the main reason why I don't like it.
(au) wrote: Pants-on-head retarded. I don't mind dumb fun, but I couldn't get past the floaty flimsy boring fights and the bewildering soundtrack. Whoever puts Disturbed and Drowning Pool in a movie should be murdered.
(ca) wrote: Had to rewatch this before I reviewed it, as I know I saw it opening weekend about a decade ago.I actually thought worse of it this time, as the story will keep you interested for sure, but Costner can be pretty awful at times: example being the donor scene.The film leads up to what you would think would be a happy ending and yeah...kind of lame turn of events.Had potential, just didn't hit in in the end.
(ca) wrote: MEH.Just rewatch or recall any other Hugh Grant bumbling Englishman film and any other Julia Roberts seemingly unattainable/secretly just a normal person film (or interview or anything she has ever done) and imagine them happening together in a bookshop.These two actors have never been placed as firmly in their pigeonholes as in this lacklustre, predictable, disappointing, surprisingly un-charming film from the team who have given us so many other utterly glorious, infinitely-rewatchable, heartstring-tugging British romantic comedy/dramas.A sad black mark on what is otherwise a near-impeccable scoresheet for this production-direction-screenwriting powerhouse.
(de) wrote: Easily one of the finest American action films of the '80s. However, this film has a lot more going for it than one may think. Firstly, the phenomenal chemistry between Gibson and Glover, which is helped by a great deal of improvisation friendly direction from the great Richard Donner. All while sporting, possibly, the best performance of Mel Gibson's career.If, somehow, none of that interests you; Shane Black's script is a masterpiece, and the action is spectacular.
(au) wrote: I try my best to be able to see a wide variety of films. I must admit that one of my cinematic blind spots are the Ealing Studios comedies which I hear so many good things about. Well, they're right. This is a delightful black comedy about a young man whose mother was a black sheep of a wealthy aristocratic family so he murders all the other heirs in order to climb his way to being duke. It's surprising twisted especially for its time (it's still quite twisted to this day, it held up). It has some surprising twists as well. The highlight of course is watching the great Alec Guinness portray all the victims.
(ru) wrote: Very educational and full of scientific facts, clips from movies, and a ton of incredible stop-motion footage by Phil Tippett. Reeve really adds on to it with his narration, and there's no cruddy theories and such flooding it. It's a lot of fun to watch.
