"Kon-Tiki" was the name of a wooden raft used by six Scandinavian scientists, led by Thor Heyerdahl, to make a 101-day journey from South America to the Polynesian Islands. The purpose of the expedition was to prove Heyerdal's theory that the Polynesian Islands were populated from the east---specifically Peru---rather than from the west (Asia) as had been the theory for hundreds of years. Heyerdahl made a study of the winds and tides in the Pacific, and by simulating conditions as closely as possible to those he theorized the Peruvians encountered, set out on the voyage.

When evil corporate handicapped villains decide to build a fancy hotel, they unknowingly build it upon a gelatinous blob that has the ability to exploit anyone's fears once it jizzes it's ooze onto the skin of that person. It's now up to Hercules, um, I mean Kevin Sorbo as a hip preacher and some chick to stop the blob from taking over the world. Been there, done that with a much better plot, budget, actors, etc. This movie was a complete waste of my time.

(br) wrote: Jamon Jamon was imagined, I suppose, as a serio-comic examination of that situation where one lets his basic sexual instincts take control over his entire being. What makes it bad is, I would say, two things: 1) every person in it shares these characteristic and, as a an expected consequence; 2) they all become extremely boring at about twenty minutes into the film. This was the first pairing of future spouses: Javier Bardem who, with his above the waist outfit could be considered as a predecessor to male characters from Twilight and Penelope Cruz. She plays a poor young girl Sylvia, who gets pregnant by her rich boyfriend Hoze Luis. Now, I know the thought of an abortion proposition immediately came to your minds, but no! Hoze Luis actually turns out to be quite noble and wants to marry Sylvia. The problem is his lack of spine, as he is not capable to fully confront his obsessive mother (Stefania Sandrelli) who thinks her son could do much better. She hires Raul Gonzales (Bardem) to seduce Sylvia and separate her from Hoze Luis. That intention is short lived as the mother soon starts to feel attracted to Raul and wants him all to her self. If anyone has seen few telenovelas, this kind of plot is familiar. Speaking of that, the whole movie, in writing, with its one-dimensional characters, is a soap opera material which had to be elevated by director Bigas Luna in some way. Apparently, the most creative way he could think of was to throw in great amount of nudity and sex scenes. Most of them are pointless because the whole film is like that, and they are not very sexy to begin with. During the one between Raul and Sylvia I honestly thought that her contractions started. After that experience, she needn't worry about giving birth. It couldn't possibly be as painful as that sounded. Javier Bardem has proven him self as a terrific actor over the years, but this is the single most uninteresting character I have ever seen him play. The fact that his Raul gets all the ladies shows us that Luna doesn't have much respect for women in general. By that I mean mostly on Cruz character, who should be the most sympathetic person here, but the script just doesn't give her credit. I honestly don't know what Luna was getting to with most of the stuff he threw in here. There are a few musical moments which suggest his desire for a certain kind of mood or emotion, but I wasn't able to name it because he didn't achieve it in the scenes, and couldn't feel it because I didn't feel sympathy for none of the characters. When it was all over, I realized that Jamon Jamon didn't do anything for me. It didn't even change my perception about the possibilities of using a ham. If I ever find myself in a situation where protection of my integrity is necessary, I think I will rather choose more conventional, already proven weapons.
(mx) wrote: Rather dull film about a woman who goes to work on the swing shift on the assembly line to help the Allies win WWII. While in the workforce, she has an affair with a co-worker. More of a drama than a comedy but doesn't really maintain interest as either. Director Demme should have stuck to women-in-prison fare.

(it) wrote: Amenabar's vision of the alexandrian world translates into a very intimate and sensible portrait of one of the greatest minds of mankind: Hypatia. Her struggle with power is the very foundation of a film that raises big questions, although it doesn't answer all of them. Nevertheless, it is a very ambitious movie, with nice performances from its cast, a very smart premise and a great work of period-setting.
(ca) wrote: The basic idea is kind of fun and there are one or two good lines in addition to some clever and original ways to kill people. After the initial premise wears off, though, you have to endure Kristen Stewart's limited range of facial expressions and Jesse Eisenberg's wooden stoner acting. Does the man play anything but Louis Masoudi on dope? The movie is basically Adventureland with guns and explosions. And why is it always the CIA behind these super duper party pooper killer assassins? The agency is good, but it ain't that good. Two stars for a snow shovel kill.
