Melanieann D (es) wrote: A powerful story well told in skillful hands. Philip Noyce, of Rabbitproof Fence fame, once again takes a story of oppression and just tells the story, without apportioning blame or taking sides. The script is marvellous and the acting uniformly good. Tim Robbins and Derek Lucas both affecting near-flawless South African accents, take the male leads and put in outstanding roles. Tim Robbins as the Afrikaner cop is a character difficult to understand, at one point he takes his prisoner home for Sunday dinner with his family and in another scene oversees the beating-up and torture of innocent people. Derek Lucas is equally good as a man who's only interest lies with his family and job before being arrested and ultimately backed into a course of action that he could not have foreseen. Michelle Botes and Bonnie Mbuli are both excellent South African actresses who play the respective wives, Bonnie Mbuli in particular putting in a very affecting role as the wife who stands by helplessly as her husband spirals into a new life which does not include her or her children
Christopher E (jp) wrote: A beautiful movie about friendship and loss that children themselves may not even understand, but will always hold a place in the hearts of many."Bridge To Terabithia" follows the story of a young boy who lives a rough family life. He's always kept to himself and barely had a viable relationship with his family. But one day, a new girl moves into town, and after a bumpy start, these two go on to build a life changing friendships that will not only open his eyes to new perspectives, but change the way he sees everything. The two stretch their imaginations beyond belief and create their own world to which they can escape the realities of life, and through this, we get to watch them live their lives through this wondrous adventure. Not only is this one of my favorite movies from my childhood, but it's one of my favorite movies of all time. Although I say that this is one of my favorite childhood films, this, in my opinion, is not a kid's movie. This movie, despite the plot, is actually a very touching and real movie about loss and life that many kids won't understand. The twist in the movie alone is controversial and can leave many kids confused, even scarred. At a young age, most will enjoy the adventures that our two characters go on, but won't understand what's really behind the dialogue and what everything means. Although I love this movie, I recommend you don't let your child watch this due to some of the powerful and tragic events in this film.In movies like this that are held together by their young actors, they normally struggle due to the inability of the actors to portray the characters well. However, these are two great kid actors that hold up on their end. Josh Hutcherson does a great job of playing this really real kid that struggles with his emotions, and he honestly fits the role perfectly. His character is very relatable and when moments call for it, he steps up to the plate. I think he's definitely an underrated actor, as his performances to this date have been solid. Annasophia Robb also did a great job as her character, playing a girl who's open minded. She's able to create these other worlds that help battle the confusing conflicts within life, and I loved her character all around. Most of the supporting cast held up just fine, and I was pleased with everyone's all around performances.This is one of the most fun, yet dark movies out there. Let's talk about the fun part first. With this being a kids movie and all, it manages to supply a perfect amount of adventure for young children. These two characters use their imagination to create a world of their own, where they rule the land and fight the forces of evil. The best part about this is not neccesarily the action, but the fact that these kids did what most kids would do. Every kid has an imagination beyond the unthinkable, and this is exactly what we all used to do as a child. Everything they could possibly dream of was created in their minds, and was a way to escape their difficult realities. It's a perfect way to not only entertain us as an audience, but to show us that we can make things better if we choose to.The writing is one of my favorite parts of this movie. It's so smart, yet so subtle that it'll fly right over children's heads, but adults will recognize it and relate to it in a heartbeat. For example, our main character, Jesse, comes home after a rough day at school. As he walks through the kitchen in his small, run down house, his parents are quietly at the table struggling with bills. This represents the struggle that families like this have to go through and it can hit home for a lot of people. Whether it's as simple as that, or the fact that he is unable to obtain a decent pair of shoes, it all adds up to make a very real story. There are plenty of messages in here that can make you feel emotional, as it blends together light and dark in the perfect ways.The screenplay was also very note worthy, as it just felt very consistent and meaningful. You have the Dad who often treats his son with less intimacy than he does his younger daughter, and you can see that it hurts Jesse. Speaking of which, Jesse is this isolated character that has a hard time balancing everything in life. He's not neccesarily rude, but rather, just someone who just tries to get through life. Leslie always has something nice to say, or will often show her kindness through her actions. I really loved all of the small things in this movie that just make you feel warm inside, and the dialogue was perfect throughout.Although this is a fun movie, it's a very dark one at that. This is a movie about tragedy and loss, and just how difficult it can be to deal with life. Life is a mixture, and a lot of the time, it's ugly. Jesse never really had anything, and it was not until Leslie that he started smiling. This friendship that forms between the two is awe inspiring, and there are plenty of moments that really signify this message. Other than the deep message, the real reason why I think this isn't a kid's movie is because of the powerful and shocking ending. This is where the message of tragedy and loss come into play, and I was on the verge of tears. It's emotional in every way and kid's will be scarred by it. This is a movie that is meant for kids, but will resonate with anyone that is a teenager age or above. This is a deep movie that will manage to toy with your emotions.In the end, I absolutely loved this movie. There's no way around it but to say I though this was perfect. I've watched this movie plenty of times by now, and it honestly just keeps getting better and better. It inspires me in many ways, and it makes me want to mend the broken relationships in my life, because they really are precious. With the impact this movie had on me, I have to praise it for that.
Jerome K (ca) wrote: This was my first exposure to director Don Roos' work, and I must say, I am impressed. Movies with many interweaving plots seem to be getting more popular, and I think this film is one of those that pulls it off well. Reviews on this have been mixed, though mostly on the positive side. The negative critics couldn't decide whether it's too complicated or not complicated enough. Some even complain that some of the plot is unrealistic, but is that a valid complaint? This film is showing everyone at their lowest point, and the situations everyone experiences during those times are different. The emotions are almost palpable, especially thanks to the great performances from the ensemble cast. I've always been endeared towards Lisa Kudrow because of Friends, and it was great to see her shine in a more dramatic role while still maintaining her charm. Maggie Gyllenhaal seems natural as the conniving Jude; I wouldn't be surprised if she was somewhat like her in real life. The story itself was a lot more dramatic and emotional than I expected it to be, and I highly enjoyed it. I'm sure drama fans will love it.

Matthew L (br) wrote: There is so much wrong with this film, its difficult to know where to start. So lets begin with the small matter of it being a sequel, its not, it might say Alligator II on the title card, but this is more of a remake than a sequel. There is not a drop of originality in this film, in fact they lift whole scenes, of the 'gator, from the original. The dialogue is insipid and the majority of the acting is wooden, with most of the cast hoping for their paycheque to clear. The original is now regarded as something of a cult classic, thanks largely to John Sayles script, this doesn't even fall into the its so bad its good category.
Daniel K (ru) wrote: 1.5: Hmm. I was prompted to watch these by an article in The New Yorker that I read a year or two ago. I wasn't expecting them to be outstanding, but I was expecting something better than this. I have now seen essentially every Charlie Chan film, or at least all that were made between 1931 and 1947 (29 films). What struck me most is that these really have more in common with a television show than a feature film. Each film is essentially the same except for the "location." I guess it makes sense as they serve essentially the same purpose. One can essentially watch every film on auto-pilot comfortable in the knowledge that one knows exactly which characters will pop up and that everything will be satisfactorily resolved in the end. They are "C" picture at best. Sidney Toler is pretty good; Warner Toland is somewhat acceptable; and the other two one picture no-names are either inconsequential or awful. It is rather ludicrous that they didn't allow an actual Asian actor to play the role, but the portrayal of African-American's is much more heinous. They certainly pale in comparison to just about every other detective picture/TV series I've ever seen. None of the films rate an individual review so this will have to suffice for all 29.
