(au) wrote: Mel Gibson alone makes this movie worthwhile with his smartass charisma. The storyline is also interesting enough to keep you in tune throughout it's rather short run time with fast but logical pace. 'Get the Gringo' is certainly an underrated piece within Mel Gibson's long list of filmography/

Not only is he wanting to see every character he introduces to us as honestly as possible and with just the slightest edge of caricature, but he also has the gall to try and suggest to us that beyond all the hint at tragedy and misunderstanding, sometimes we are all doing ok, inside our skins, going along as best we can. This is his celebration of family and food, although you can see a handful of other themes to play with, and nothing comes across as clich or hackneyed. A film to savor and another gleeful example of Leigh's humanity.

(us) wrote: Not as enjoyable as I'd thought it would be, Matresse suffers of "incoherence" sometimes (for example, the incomprehensible ending could be a bit more conclusive). But the costumes (designed by Karl Lagerfeld), and the BDSM fantasies are too irresistible to ignore. Overall, a different and interesting film that is never too gratuitous or gross.

(it) wrote: This film is everything a movie musical about World War 1 should be. It trades in the deep dissonance between the brutality of total war and the frivolity of Edwardian culture. A war shatters the carefree summer of 1914 and instead of being appalled that their fun has come to an end, they treat the war like just one more great spectator sport in a summer full of rowing competitions and football matches. The ultimate masculine game. What follows is a brilliant display of dissonance between the world of civilians and officers (played out like yet another music hall show) and the somewhat more realistically presented world of the front line troops.Throughout the film, violence is often highly stylized (particularly in the scenes with a dapper photographer who hands out poppies to characters to symbolize their deaths) but never trivialized, and the absurdity of the mounting casualties is driven home throughout the course of the film. The film's cheery score and cavalcade of well-choreographed singers and dancers do not come off as a sugar coating on a bitter pill, but as a device to lighten the mood just enough to allow the idea of death on a large scale to have as much impact on the viewer as possible without shocking them with graphic violence; the viewer's innocence is repeatedly built up by catchy soft-shoe numbers and sappy ballads, then shattered. The comic relief is used to take us on an emotional journey that finds us desperately attempting to return to the good cheer of 1914 and being cut down every time.In all, as musicals about war go, it avoids being frivolous propaganda, while using the trappings of frivolity to soften its tone just enough to not be sanctimonious. I was quite impressed with it over all.

(kr) wrote: Growing up in the 90's and 2000's allowed for my childhood to be full of animated tales from the likes of Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks, and what a time it was to be alive. Throughout the majority of my childhood, 'The Lion King' remained my favourite animated film, even above the CGI tales like 'Toy Story'. Well that was until 2010, that was the year I saw 'How to Train Your Dragon' which is still as of 2016, my all-time favourite animated film. DeBlois's and Sanders' film takes a daring approach at adding more depth and adult situations that many other animated films avoid, including the (spoiler alert) loss of a character's limb - maybe not every kid's ideal animated tale, well, that's actually all incorrect, as despite the somewhat mature themes (that DreamWorks equally utilised in their other efforts) it's a film that both kids and adults adore.As mentioned above, the script, loosely based on the book of the same name, is utterly fantastic, finding the perfect subject that is suitable for both adults and children alike. A story of love and family encased in a coming-of-age tale, with dashes of drama, action and comedy. The visuals are stunning with gorgeous animation, and the score is by far one of the finest I've ever heard in any animated film, one that John Powell should be proud of - arguably it should have never lost the Oscar to 'The Social Network'. The characters are all relatable in their own way, with brilliant voice acting, but the greatest 9and probably the most expressive) character is by far Toothless, the feline-like Night Fury dragon. All-in-all, this is an animated masterpiece, one that is a constant flow of riveting and exciting drama.
(us) wrote: A good follow-up to "French Connection", even if it wasn't an official sequel. With solid on-location filming and a terrific car chase, "Seven-Ups" doesn't have the interesting characters that made "Connection" a classic. Still, Roy Scheider provides an amiable hero, and the filmmakers ratchet up the tension with attention to details and patience.
