(jp) wrote: Overall, not as wretchedly horrible as I was expecting. What you end up getting is some mediocre effects, half-good and half-dreadful acting, transparent characters, lame dialogue, laughable script, and yet a plot with some twists and turns that had me guessing or straight up laughing. All in all a good b-movie rental with some topless chicks, one bad-ass hottie, a debauched werewolf, copious gore, and a vague semblance to Ray Garton's "Ravenous."

(es) wrote: Thrilling movie. The leads had great chemistry. Emilio Estevez gave an especially good performance.
(fr) wrote: "Silkwood" may not be particularly suspenseful, but its portrayal of extraordinary bravery from an ordinary woman does leave an impression. Tons of young, budding stars fill out the cast although their full range of skills has yet to develop. That having been said, it's the best bit of acting I can recall seeing from Kurt Russell. Cher's complete lack of glamour or pretense struck me as unusually authentic. It's worth seeing if for no other reason than reminding yourself how little things seem to change over the years.

(es) wrote: The varied personalities of the brothers are no coincidence since Visconti's episodic structure has the specific purpose of displaying those social stratums that form part of everyday's conflicts under the smart pretext of "we are all brothers; our society is a massive family". Its roots can be appreciated in the new wave of American directors of the 70s, most predominantly Scorsese, yet this powerful epic has not quite been surpassed in both its intentions and its honest, tragic nature. A powerful statement even for today's standards. 99/100 P.S. Hunt down the three-hour version. There is a reason for that.

(ag) wrote: The perfectly casted Angelina Jolie makes Lara Croft interesting enough to watch it, but the plot is forgettable. The movie fails to build up any interest in her quest, and fails to deliver any emotional impact.
(jp) wrote: I love A Christmas Carol, it really holds a special place in my heart and I try to watch some version of it every year. So a parody of A Christmas Carol made in the time when parody movies were actually good? Yeah, I was intrigued.First of all, Bill Murray is great. The opening scenes where Scrooge (or in this case Frank Cross) is this truly despicable man are a little tough to see him in I will admit. Murray's always been great at playing the likable jerk, but when he has to play this guy who's just an outright awful human being it's a little hard to believe. Once the story gets rolling and we see more of his past though, he really nails it. The panic, bargaining, and eventual heart that this character shows here is really good.I also have to give props to the production and the story here. I really like the meta elements of how the story of him being visited by the 3 ghosts is happening on the same night as his TV production of A Christmas Carol, it led to some really clever moments. And the settings themselves were great, especially Christmas Yet To Come which is creepy as hell and does a lot of disorienting things with the camerawork.The one area where this movie falters is, unfortunately, the humor. A lot of the humor goes for these outrageous over-the-top scenes that feel desperate and frankly exhausting to watch. That's not to say it doesn't have its funny moments, it does, it's just there weren't any huge laughs for me and for every moderate laugh there was also a joke that fell completely flat.It's not a perfect movie. It's pretty inconsistent, and sometimes a bit too goofy for its own good. But it is still really enjoyable, and it's clear that a lot of passion went into it and there was a great love for the source material which I have to admire. There really aren't any modernized takes on A Christmas Carol, this is about as close as it gets, and I liked seeing that take on this story. Murray's a lot of fun, the sets and costumes are really cool, and it's just a fun time.
