(fr) wrote: This is the worst movie made. It has a good idea, but the writer of the script didn(TM)t know how to develop it. The film is not funny and is not the original; this is just a worst version with new bad scenes. I rather read a book or do anything else
(mx) wrote: a typical european movie with typical european upsides and downsides. upsides are a well-made atmosphere of a slovenian small town and a pile of metaphorical pictures + some wierd humor, and the downsides are the lack of real plot (nothing really happens) and some trying to be a smart-ass in the script. although nothing really happens, atmosphere alone is worth watching, and the characters make a complete freak show.
(ag) wrote: The opening where the credits play is brilliant. It just overlooks a chess board, but the camera angles throughout the title and credits and parts of the movie too are just excellent. The movie itself was one of the worst movies I've ever sat through. B-rate movie, with an F-grade.
(nl) wrote: Post-Scream slasher movie that ignores the rules and encourages sex. It's not perfect, but it's well crafted and does what horror movies are supposed to do: exploring the dark sides of small American towns. It cannot be considered groundbreaking, but the killer/punisher who likes to tie victim to chairs, before the world discovered the likes of the more disturbing Saw and Hostel, is certainly remarkable. Surely Mr Tarantino would appreciate the "feet sex" scene.
(au) wrote: This documentary by Peter Lynch is about an obsessed man, Troy Hurtubise, as he wants to come face-to-face with a bear. Troy spents years and thousands of dollars on creating a bear-attack-proof suit. There are some "Jack-ass"-esque moments where we see Troy hit my a truck, giant logs, and attacked by a biker gang. Ultimately though we never see him take on the bear. It was fun watching him "test" his suit, but there was so much buildup of a man vs. bear main event that I was disappointed when it never happened.There's also plenty of downtime where Troy talks about irrelevant things. A somewhat gratifying ending as Troy comes across what he thinks is the bear he encountered in his past. Of course this is from a safe distance and without the bear suit. This documentary had some real potential but ultimately I was disappointed. 2/5 stars. (4/12/10)

(it) wrote: Tim Roth is pretty awsome in this. One of his best roles and best performances, and if I'm not misstaken, one of his very first. Alot like 'Scum' in the way that it's very bleak and down to earth. Nothing is overstated, it's all as grimey and bland as it is in real life.
(ru) wrote: Plot is whatever, action is some of the best I've ever seen. I'm a sucker for early 90's kung fu movies. That sped up action and stuff. So good
(de) wrote: Hilarious zombie comedy that pays homage to many of the great films of the past while managing to be a pretty scary itself. The cast is splendid across with board, with Simon Pegg & Nick Frost's buddy routine translating perfectly to the big screen, while Bill Nighy makes the most of his small role (with a sucker-punch of a final scene). The real star is writer/director Edgar Wright, who makes a fantastic film debut, delivering laughs & scares at the same time. Most importantly, the zombies are taken seriously and are quite scary & gruesome (more than a few characters meet a brutal end), making the comedy that much more effective. One of the best horror/comedies of all time.
(es) wrote: It's a little dated obviously, being made before man had been to the moon, it's portrayal of space flight is antiquated even. BUT it does a very good job of portraying classic horror, most of the actual action takes place of screen, leaving you with the responses on the faces of the actors and with something to do for your own imagination. Also I think Brian Donlevy does a pretty decent job of portraying Quartermass as an absolutely consummate scientist, with mind for little else, certainly not 'the little people'.Wordsworth gives a very good performance as 'the monster' (without actually ever speaking). Margia Dean is less then stellar in this movie though. Overall if you like classic horror flicks, you'll enjoy this for sure.
