Ava W (au) wrote: This is an amazing example of low fantasy. The cinematics are well done, the art is gorgeous, the acting is impeccable, and the writing is fantastic. There wasn't a dry eye by the end in my house, nor were there any fidgety limbs from bored children. It's the right balance of somber, introspective dialogue and heart thumping action. We loved it and can't forgive ourselves for missing it in the cinema.

Christopher B (nl) wrote: Weak script is overcome with the strong premise, acting, & direction. Feels like a TV-movie-of-the-week, but don't let that fool you. This is a powerful drama - especially for those that may have lost friends or family to combat.
Scott S (ag) wrote: Squirm (1976) -- [5.5] -- A movie about killer worms could be much worse than "Squirm". But I don't think a movie about killer worms could ever be better than "Squirm". I was impressed with how director Jeff Lieberman was able to sidestep the hokey concept to create several scary or suspensful scenes, and he does a great job establishing some fairly memorable characters. In other words, this movie is far better than it has any right to be. It almost reminded me of how producer Val Lewton used to craft a fairly sensible movie around a ridiculous title like "I Walked with a Zombie". But despite the valliant directorial effort and an adequate cast, "Squirm" still hits the glass ceiling of its own absurdity.

Gregory G (it) wrote: A Civil War romantic drama in which the romantic leads are the least interesting characters on screen. Based on the Charles Frazier novel, inspired by Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey," Jude Law is a wounded Confederate soldier, turned deserter, who treks the 300 miles home to his beloved (Nicole Kidman) in provincial North Carolina. Written and directed by Anthony Minghella, this self-important, middle-of-the-road epic inconceivably ignores slavery, but expects us to care about this vapid romance. We hear Kidman's voice on the soundtrack, in somber tones, reading aloud letters addressed to Law. Whatever passion these characters are supposed to feel for each other has been muted. Law is made righteous; Kidman is rendered helpless; resulting in a negligible romance. Dramatically inert, especially in the first hour, until Renee Zellweger appears as a scruffy, gasbag farmhand hired to toil for Kidman. Zellweger gives the movie pep, but she squints often and talks out of the side of her twisted mouth, in a conspicuous, irksome performance. Natalie Portman is quietly affecting as a lonely young widow with a baby, whom Law aids when confronted by Union soldiers. There are fine, realistic battle scenes that show the brutality of war, but falter into incoherence. Zellweger won the Oscar as Best Supporting Actress. The cast includes Eileen Atkins, Kathy Baker, Brendan Gleeson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Cillian Murphy, Giovanni Ribisi, Donald Sutherland, and Ray Winstone. Cinematography is by John Seale, music is by Gabriel Yared, editing is by Walter Murch.
JeanPol C (de) wrote: y opinion---Johnny Got His Gun (Johnny Got His Gun) is an American war drama of the most humanist kind, if any, against the absurdity of wars and their horror processions, admirably realized by Dalton Trumbo, in 1971, according to his novel published in 1939. This movie is very violent and challenging, is also a clear, clear and uncompromising statement against war ... The 1970s being justly conducive to the America, struggling with despair in Vietnam for so many years already with its cortege of horrors and misfortune, and "Johnny goes to war" will demonstrate a case among all these incredible Horrors that can be made to suffer like damage to the human beings disintegrating in this mire that is the war. As for the interpretation of "Timothy Bottoms" (in the role of Johnny) has delivered a breathtaking performance, a role taking in the guts an incredible force that dismisses the heart in front of all these absurdities that the man subjects to its pairs.In conclusion: a hard movie unequivocal and filled with humanity in a lost world, a movie to discover or rediscover.
