(ru) wrote: Not as bad as I thought it would be, but it does feel bit like a cash in to The Walking Dead's success. The zombies and gore effects are pretty decent, the characters are alright for the most part. The story is a little stale, and some parts seem to drag on, but the ending is pretty good. It's not too memorable, but it's not awful either.
(it) wrote: Don't let the critics or general audience responses fool you. This movie is beautifully shot and has a lot to say about humanity. Eva Green and Ewan MacGregor are certainly easy to watch, as well.

But I remember back when I was much younger, seeing this on TV for the first time with my parents, and being completely hooked on it ever since. For what it's worth, this made-for-TV movie has a very interesting plot that's held together with a blend of good performances from Judge Reinhold, Crystal Bernard and everybody else who starred in this movie. If I ever chose to make a list on some of the world's early 1990's TV movies that had the potential to achieve a "cult following", this would probably be number 1 on that list.

"Step aside, High School Musical" - I don't think this line is fair, because it was heavily inspired on High School Musical, so they think that this movie will be better than the original movie made? I don't think so. It may be good, but it's not excellent. Lousy singing - unlike High School Musical, that has great singers. Maybe HSM fans will hate The Asylum.

(de) wrote: As I recall, this was not so good. Robot Jox was sub-par, but this lowered the bar even more. Go see Pacific Rim or Transformers. Much better robots and much more action.
(ru) wrote: this movie is awesome! The acting, script, and direction is superb!! It has tragic moments and funny moments. Shows the struggles between a mother accepting her son, also the struggles of a lost love. I really liked this movie for it's frankness.
(ag) wrote: A British guy trying to make a connection with the conservative Chinese mother of his deceased partner; the theme and the gloomy cinematography make you sad even before the story begins to unfold. Communication is the main problem over here. They somehow manage with the help of a translator, and I like how they sometimes say things and then tell the translator not to translate it (because they realise how it would sound). This leads to few funny moments occasionally.The movie has a really good start, but after halfway through, the Director/Writer loses his way; it seemed as if he's not sure as to where to take the story. By the time it ended, I felt dissatisfied; the story should have been longer or the characters should have been explored and developed a little more.The two leads, Ben Whishaw and Pei-pei Cheng, give quite strong and incredible performances; they have a few immensely moving scenes. And it doesn't hurt that Andrew Leung, the actor playing the deceased partner, is quite handsome; he and Ben looked quite good together, which makes his death even more painful.The conversations the two lead characters share are quite moving and thought-provoking, and the monologue Junn has towards the end on the essence of grief and crying is really beautiful. Let me quote the most effective lines from it: "These memories are all I have; I need to keep them vivid, or they'll fade like the face of my husband. I want to dwell on these memories and cry over them because they comfort me. Through plenty of crying, I've learnt to be content that I won't always be happy, secure in my loneliness, hopeful that I'll be able to cope."The movie is depressing, yet uplifting, but somehow I feel, it failed to reach its true potential.
(br) wrote: Political scandal, private indiscretions and personal integrity; Wallowing in its own superiority, The Ides of March is an overly portentous drama about ones pursuit of lofty moral ambitions and their inadvertent enticement towards corruption. Based on Beau Willimon's play Farragut North; inspired by real life events during Howard Deans 2004 presidential bid, four time director George Clooney attempts to thrusts a the knife into the raw nerves of the American political process but sadly although corrupt politics is universally understandable the gravitas is lost in translation and an overt amount of take-back-the-country nonsense. "I am not a Christian. I am not an atheist. . . . My religion is written on a piece of paper called the Constitution." A few frenetic days prior to a key presidential primary in Ohio; the idealistic, enthusiastic and dedicated silver-tonged press-secretary Stephen Meyers (Ryan Gosling) genuinely believes in the cause for which he fights.As smooth operating media spokesman for the suave democratic presidential contender, Governor Mike Morris (George Clooney), Meyers is confident about clinching the make or break Democratic nomination for his candidate against the down-and dirty competition of Jack Stearns (Gregory Itzin) and his win-at-any-cost campaign manager Tom Duffy (Giamatti).When requested to attend a seedy and secret meeting with Duffy, Meyers is offered a position within their party of which he vehemently rejects, whilst also learning some insider information that Morris' lead isn't as insurmountable as assumed.Whilst confiding the information to his boss and Morris' battle-hardened and loyalty stickler campaign manager Paul Zara (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Meyer's must confess to his fateful indiscretion. Continuing on a misguided path, Meyer also engages in a dalliance with 19 year old intern Molly (Evan Rachel Wood) adding an extra layer of complication to the table.When the back-handed story is leaked to Times reporter Ida Horowicz (Marisa Tomei), Meyer is unable to find a spin on the situation that won't derail his fast track to the White House. Desperate to save his skin and the campaign, how loose will Meyers morals need to become to succeed? Is there something in Molly's flirtation he can exploit? Is Morris as squeaky clean as expected? It is nave to believe there such thing as an honourable politician and this movie adds to the collection of backroom commodities exchanges and pull-no-punches American politico dramas Primary Colours and Wag the dog. Clooney extracts wonderful performances from his players including himself. Gosling is outstanding, Hoffman commands authority, Wood's delivers venerability and Giamatti embodies the required amount of manipulation expected from someone in the position. He also delivers a fundamental insight into the take-take relationship with media and the inflexible deadline hurtles they can impose. The Verdict: As idealism turns to disillusionment, loyalty, betrayal, integrity and principles dissolve ones perception to the point of disinterest. Although timely and outstandingly portrayed, this tense chess game of a political drama reaches a muted contemplative conclusion before any staggering revelations or genuine empathy can be evoked.
