Thomas W (es) wrote: First-time full-length director Hue Rhodes has taken a gamble with this pitch black dramedy about compulsive gambler John (Steve Buscemi - "Boardwalk Empire", Fargo, Reservoir Dogs), who has uprooted his life thus-far filled with bad habits and poor choices to escape the vices of Vegas to start anew in the slower, less frenetic and tempting city of Albuquerque, New Mexico (which means John must not watch AMC's Breaking Bad!). John's new life is considerably less-exciting as he works the phones in the back offices of an auto insurance company. His one joy at work -- and perhaps within the entire city and in his "new life" -- is sharing his cubicle with "yellow happy face" obsessed Jill (Sarah Silverman - Wreck-It Ralph, Take This Waltz, Evolution). Wanting a little more out of life, John's attempt to ask his boss (Peter Dinklage - "Game of Thrones", Elf, The Station Agent) for a raise finds himself being assigned as a partner to Virgil (Romany Falco - Think Like a Man, Baby Mama, Blades of Glory), a top in-the-field investigator for fraudulant claims. John's life is thrown for a loop/into danger (!) when his new assignment finds him investigating a dubious filing in Sin City (darn the luck!). Saint John has a great cast (although some of the casting may be questionable) and there are some laughs here (some easy and some uncomfortable). This isn't a bad movie; the downside is that it is just not good enough for a recommendation. No matter what genre one would want to place this movie into, there would be much better ones to watch in any of them. Craps!

Cynthia S (jp) wrote: A young Leonardo...already an outstanding actor. He absolutely stole this film as his own even at such a young age. I love period dramas, and biographical dramas, so this movie was just perfect for me. Leo portrays a supposedly true-to-life strange and crazy poet in this movie. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job than he did. Very interesting film.

Anna B (au) wrote: Too many clichs to count. The script goes from culture clash comedy of manners to staid, boring courtroom drama, all the while patronising people who Herzog clearly sees as noble savages, who can't believe the stupid ways we live, what with our scary traffic and elevators that break down every time you use them. Herzog's direction can't quite make up for weak material this time, though as always it's worth watching.

Robyn M (nl) wrote: "The Petrified Forest" (Archie Mayo, 1936) is most fascinating for its eager willingness to voice criticisms of wealth, power, authority, and inequality in America. Perhaps its acute social commentary should be unsurprising considering that Warner Brothers released the romantic crime drama during the depths of the Great Depression. In doing so, who wants to watch battles of real life on the movie screen?
Jim D (it) wrote: First movie to win the Oscar for best picture. A silent film made in 1927. Actually very good. Some excellent battles sequences...and the aerial battle footage is really good. A lot of pilot perspective shots...all done with real planes of the era. I doubt a movie today could depict it so realistically without extensive use of CGI...and while it is a silent film (no human voices), there were very good sound effects of the battle sequences.
David B (au) wrote: Atmospheric American-International 60s mad scientist film based on H.P Lovecraft short story. Looking a lot like an outlier from the Roger Corman Poe cycle this is a good watch on a wet afternoon or evening. Karloff is great in one of his last performances, sumptuous art direction and English "Old Dark House" setting also help.
