Bailey A (nl) wrote: The film isn't a surprise disappointment based on the standard of the previous sequels. Depp's performance was once mesmerising but now seems a tad annoying. Ian McShane does his best but the story and script fail to allow him to deliver Blackbeard as a terrifying character.
Jesse O (br) wrote: Don't think I'd have much to say about this movie, hopefully. Last time I said that was with O Brother, Where Art Thou? and I wrote a long ass review. But I digress, this is a pretty good movie with a good cast. It is a little sentimental, but thankfully the film has enough good stuff in it that the sentimentality isn't really that bothersome, not like it was in Instructions not Included. And I liked the fact that the movie wasn't as melodramatic as you'd have thought given the synopsis. So I appreciate the fact that the film didn't really try to manipulate your emotions. Well, other than the climactic moment of the film, which is Terrence Stamp's solo during the choir's performance. It's not exactly manipulative in the traditional sense, but it was designed to get the tears rolling, tears of happiness at seeing this cantankerous old man finally overcoming every obstacle in front of him, some of these by his own doing. The songs are also well-done and fun, though I think the film could've used more. But I'm not complaining, the movie's certainly still good. I can't believe I kept this as short as I did. Regardless this is a good film with a great cast and some sensitive direction help keep this film from being nauseatingly sentimental.
Timothy G (it) wrote: Precious is one of the best films ever made, but let's make no mistake--it is a hard movie to watch. This movie grips you from the beginning and will not let you go. You may well find having to pause the movie to take a step back and take a few moments before continuing. This is a result of the powerful performances given by Gaborey Sidibe playing the title character and Mo'nique playing Precious' mother. This film deals with taboo themes with a relentless intensity that almost makes Schindler's List look like a fluff piece. Yet for all that, it is still a very inspirational film that shows us "inspirational" movies don't have to be sickly sweet, sappy pieces that would insult the intelligence of a five-year-old.

Brent D (ca) wrote: This is probably the worst of the 1960s monster flicks. The monster can best be described as "The Sock Puppet From Hell", which shoots out bright green ooze.The dubbing was horrible, worse than Godzilla movies. And the special effects were so bad they were hilarious, especially when Reptilicus "eats" a farmer!
Aldo G (fr) wrote: Failed film noir, yet nonetheless a treat for fans of the genre. Director John Berry and cinematographer Harry Stradling Sr.deliver the goods with gorgeous, stark visuals. Berry lays the femme fatale archetypes on thick: the platinum blonde who is bored and seeks adventure with other men, the boozy saxophone music every time she appears and her double-crossing antics. Audrey Totter plays the role of Claire Quimby with relish. Married to a boring pharmacist who can only offer her love and a home Totter wants out. Hubby Warren Quimby, played by Richard Basehart, can't stop her from running off with another man so he devises an elaborate plot to kill her lover so he can have her back.This is where the picture starts to stumble. Mr. Quimby begins to fall for another woman and the sparks never fly. Hard to believe that Basehart can't generate fireworks with the glamorous Cyd Charisse, but it's a script flaw and Berry's directing can't overcome the missing passion on the page.Berry's also doesn't deliver the suspense the film's title promises. Despite all this I enjoyed Tension and recommend it for lovers of the genre. There's enough to admire here and make one wonder what could have happened to director Berry's moviemaking career had he not been forced to flee the United States a couple of years after making this movie because he was fingered as a communist.

John T (ru) wrote: Batman dies and Robin (or Night Wing) takes over to fill his shoes. This was good. Not as great at some of the others that have come out recently, but definitely not bad. They need to stop pumping out these movies, though, and just it back on regular rotation on tv.
