(us) wrote: You worship the Divine goddess in her idol form, yet in her human form you shun her. <--(or words to that effect) If you like Bollywood movies in general, or even if you've only seen and enjoyed a few ( Bride and Prejudice?, Slum dog millionaire, etc), then this should be among those to give a try.Set predominantly in Hindustan (India) and revolving around a traditional, yearly cricket match between India and Pakistan for the Aman (Peace) cup, the story follows Veera, a Punjab girl, who hopes one day to be the #1 cricketer, only problem is, she's a woman (and there are no female cricket teams) and so enters Veer.This isn't just a Bollywood song and dance romance, albeit the song and dance numbers are infectious in their rhythm and movement (and made me anyway, wanna get up and dance), and the romance lends to the over coming of differences. As light and funny and VERY COLOURFUL, as it is at times, at its heart is a warming story of a girl, her identity, a dream, love of country and two nations!
(fr) wrote: A truthful, beautifully shot drama about 50s, marriage, and the disintegration of love. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are predictably outstanding. Just be forewarned: Revolutionary Road is VERY depressing.

(es) wrote: superb film. even though a lot of people say it's a "teen flick", it has a great mixture of action and drama. Plus, Kang Dong Won is a really amazing and talented actor.

(au) wrote: Sling Blade was a very depressing and heart wrenching movie. I was drawn to immense sadness for Carl, the main character, a mentally challenged man, at the beginning of the movie as Carl explained the life he'd been dealt. However toward the end I became depressed to find out Carl still wasn't able to disconnect himself from irrational decisions.
(gb) wrote: What an oddball of a movie! Set during the early '60s but plays more like a detective story from the '40s, at least during the first half. Bridget Fonda is not an outstanding actress nor will she win a beauty pageant, but she's always held some inexplicable allure with me - Queen of the Plain Janes in a way. She does look her best as magician's assistant Myra who flees to Mexico with photographic evidence of her fiancee Senator Wyatt accidentally shooting her mentor. On her trail is P.I.-for-hire Ross, played by Russell Crowe still getting his feet wet in Hollywood. There is some great snappy banter between the two and they exude a nice sexual tension, and this section is the best part of the movie.Then we meet Doc Ansell, amusingly played by Jim Broadbent, who wants to enlist Myra to acquire the secret formula to an elixir with magical properties from a reclusive woman who chants on a mountainside, and things get really goofy. A man turns into a sausage, a woman lays an egg that hatches a spider, a guy instantly drops dead, a dog speaks, people levitate, and a woman coughs up her heart. I have no idea what director Clare Peploe's grand design was for Rough Magic - many of these elements are fun but so bizarre it's hard to discern the function to the form.This movie has gotten raked over the coals here on Flixster, and there is some justification, but it certainly is more entertaining than most bombs. Some great dialogue and chemistry between the leads buoy the original yet crazy developments; you could do a lot worse on a rainy day than by turning on Rough Magic.
