(jp) wrote: ** (out of four) "The Boy She Met Online" is never able to escape its made-for-television movie roots. Even worse is that it' made for the Lifetime Network. It is strictly by the books. A high school girl meets a guy online who she falls for. She is unaware that he is actually a convict who is writing to her from prison. Dull, overly-dramatic, and forgettable.

(mx) wrote: The scandals that plague the church are, I'm sure, far too numerous to count. Oranges and sunshine provides a different perspective not previously seen that adds yet another layer of trauma to what these priests have done. No, it's not the whole church, but surely even one instance is more than should have ever occurred. Shameful.
(fr) wrote: Its an interesting premise, but it ultimately just ends in an unsure wave of gratuitous sexuality, and unconvincing performances. I love Jessica Chastain, and while I think she's very beautiful, the level of sexual content reaches almost exploitative. Its just not nearly as profound as it thinks it is.

(it) wrote: A small film by Kurosawa, built from the ground up on Japan's greatest actor, Mifune. Controversial when it came out, many Japanese feeling it was too-soon after WWII, Kurosawa took a lot of risks getting it made.
(de) wrote: Chariots Of Fire is a Best Picture winner that deserves the Oscar, unlike so many others (e.g. The Social Network). The biographical story is very true to fact, unlike so many others (e.g. The Social Network).Well acted, well scripted, great cinematography and great soundtrack by Vangelis, including the theme song hit. Why can't films use synthesizers in the score as they did in the 70s and 80s? They often sound so good with films.A great historical story deserves a great film to preserve it for eternity. This film does the events and characters justice. This film was a huge critical and box office success. As you can see, today's "groupthink" critical minions no longer think so. Fair to them, the film has not held up well 35 years after its release. This is not as complex and sophisticated as many movies of today, but still provides a perfect cinematic viewing every time.

(de) wrote: Being a mathematical person (I have a Masters degree in Statistics) I was intrigued by the premise of the movie but in the end I was left with more questions than answers and was left hanging. The plot includes too much of the mathematical detail (and medical detail, listing all the drugs Cohen was taking!), often coming across as nerdy.The solution seemed too straightforward and practical, with many details lacking here (unlike in the build-up). I thought the final mix might include emotions, basically a more relationship-centric argument, especially as the plot did allude to the potential for something to happen between Cohen and his neighbour, but this didn't come up at all.This all said, Darren Aronofsky is clearly a very talented director. His use of the black&white medium and close-up camera shots in Pi were a stroke of genius - it certainly helped one get into Cohen's mind. Requiem for a Dream is an outstanding movie but Pi fails to deliver because he took on a very weighty and complex subject in his first attempt at a motion picture. The problem lies in the screenplay (which he co-wrote), and not his direction, however.It is interesting to note Aronofsky's use of some of the effects that he would later use in Requiem for a Dream, especially the fast-forward pill-popping sequence which was always worth a chuckle in both movies (in a dark sort of way).
