Daniel L (fr) wrote: Good movie, but also probably the most vague story I've ever seen. People fired for some reason; mysterious thumb drive; unknown terrible thing happening; people scared about stuff (losing their money--I got that one); secret bosses; shady deals; more people being scared. It's clearly about credit default swaps or collateralized debt obligations or subprime mortgage bundles or something like those in 2008. I guess that makes it more timeless so that it fits any financial crisis. After seeing the Big Short which relentlessly went after Wall Street for the mortgage crisis, this is a bit disappointing because of how it only explains the bad effects of their trades using the fear of rich traders and executives losing money.

Um argumento imaginativo e bem escrito e uma narrativa que vai evoluindo juntamente com as vidas dos personagens, fazem deste filme uma comdia tocante e absolutamente deliciosa. A no perder.(16/20)

Don S (us) wrote: Based on a true story of a paranormal investigator who stays one night too many in a house where multiple slayings occurred a couple of decades earlier. Instead of working alone as she always does, her benefactor convinces her to work with a team, and it proves to be her undoing. Interesting story with decent effects. The acting is the low point - it isn't awful, but it could have been much better. Worth a look.

Brandon M (gb) wrote: My full opinion: Well, I don't have any issues, while I was watching it, and I certainly wasn't at all disappointed with it. What I can tell you about Army of Darkness is this. It's not as funny or, entertaining as Evil Dead 2, but I did laugh, and I did find myself entertained by it, nevertheless. 3/4

Sgt C (us) wrote: (71%)An enjoyable, and very 70's ape movie that turns a full cycle on the original's premise. The writing is sharp, and the "apes" do come across as quite charming, and just like the original there's a ton of political meaning and truth (government agencies are real bastards and not to be trusted), and the ending is pretty harrowing. Well worth a look for almost everybody.

Nicolas A (gb) wrote: Great war movie which is set in the second world war in Egypt with Erich von Stroheim as Rommel. the story has pretty much mystery, twists and Billy Wilder didnt let it get boring at all. The acting was great and so whas everything else in the movie. It sure is worth watching as i see that none of my friends have seen our rated it yet.

Campbell P (ca) wrote: American Pie is a teen comedy that bursted out from the popularity of 90's gross out comedies. The film follows four friends that come up with the pact to all get laid before prom night. And that's pretty much the plot.... However, it's not all bad, it can actually work sometimes. What works about this film for half the time is its sense of humor. The writers did a pretty decent job making purposeful, cringeworthy jokes that felt kinda like real life dialogue. The humor itself was either funny or "wow they went that low". Any scene with Eugene Levy and Jason Biggs is gold, I laughed a lot during those scenes. There's some good gags in the film but some are just fatally disgusting. The beer scene in the first 20 minutes is completely stupid and EXTREMELY gross (not to mention unrealistic). That's actually the main problem with American Pie. None of the delivery feels genuine or real. There's scenes where I thought to myself "Yup, that would never happen" and that's really a shame. If it were a purposeful over the top comedy it would probably work, but it's not. Term comedies are supposed to make you feel like you are that age and relate to the characters in it and I honestly can't relate to anyone in this movie because they're honestly not very good people except for maybe Finch. The two leads are pretty likable actually, played by Jason Biggs and Chris Klein. Biggs plays kind of a hopeless, horny dork, while Klein plays a lovable doofus type of guy. I can't really tell if he's acting though. In Election, Klein played the exact same character so I don't know if he's just a bad actor or if he's just typecast. I also can't tell where these characters are in terms of their school's social structure. Are the cool nerds? Are they cool kids that just happen to be virgins? They're friends with the most popular kids in school, but when they try to talk to a girl they're awkward? It just doesn't seem consistent. The problem with the story is that everything feels really scripted and again, unrealistic. Everything just falls into place for everyone and *poof* happy ending. It just went way too fast for it to seem like there was a ginormous struggle for these kids. The one other thing I'll give to this movie is that it felt a bit nostalgic to high school days. Being with your friends, partying, doing dumb stuff, getting involved, that kind of stuff. I thought American Pie did that really well. That doesn't save this movie sadly. American Pie's storyline is a mess and the story seemed VERY rushed at that. It did have some good gags and some good high school nostalgia, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again. C-

Con mucha astucia, Trumbo logr sobreponerse a esta prohibicin y lleg a ganar algunos premios de la Academia, a veces a nombre de terceros, lo mostr la injusticia a la que fue sometido por dcadas. Es la historia de este gran guionista que lleg a manejar un mercado negro de guiones en Hollywood.
