Dr. Dempsey is an American scientist who has become a skeptic. He isn't enthusiastic to be sent by his employer to Scotland to (dis)prove the existence of the Loch Ness monster. He finds the locals stubborn, 'primitive' and all but hospitable, not in the least because the Nessie legend is the only tourist attraction. He still gets romantically attracted by his independent inn-keeper Laura, and both her kid and his local assistant end up making him face a small family of Nessie-dinosaurs, but is this to be made public?

(br) wrote: En un principio es difcil dilucidar como es que se conectan las historias, pero cuando todo se resuelve queda una sensacin rara. Se nota mucho cuidado en lo esttico y musical, lo cual por momentos da algunas escenas que podran haberse obviado y no afectaran la historia.
(br) wrote: A flawed film highlighted by two very brave performances. Following a married couple ok the brink of divorce when there son dies, but not before killing 22 other people in a school shooting. It is anti-dramatic in it's documentary styled approach to creating an ultra real story of loss and devastation. That means it's very realistic, but at times repetitive, predictable, and boring. It hits every expected note while creating original but unsympathetic characters. It's a worthwhile film, if flawed.
(kr) wrote: While one of their members is ailing, a group of friends proceeds with their yearly vacation.This film is a modern French version of The Big Chill. One can even draw one-to-one comparisons between the characters: Francois Cluzet's character = Kevin Kline's character, Jean Dujardin's character = Kevin Costner's character, Marion Cotillard's character = a combination of Meg Tilly's and Mary Kay Place's characters. It even has many of the same songs. It's okay to imitate, especially when a film is imitating one of the best, and The Big Chill is a superior film. But there are two important aspects of comparison that I consider relevant to evaluating Little White Lies. First, The Big Chill's characters could be reduced to types, but by the end of the film, the individual qualities of these character cause them to rise above the cliche type: the philosophical justifications behind Jeff Goldblum's character make him more interesting than the horny guy type. The same is true with Little White Lies; the scene outside Lea's apartment in Paris makes Gilles Lillouche's character more interesting than his horny guy type. This is where the French version succeeds, but The Big Chill, in addition to being an interesting film in itself, it's also a cultural critique, capturing the ennui and disappointment and failures of the Baby Boomer generation. It may be that Little White Lies makes a similar cultural critique for French audiences, but it doesn't translate, and including the sixties nostalgia songs that graced The Big Chill only serves to muddy the film's message.Overall, this is a strong film with excellent performances and esprit de corps, but the film's larger context makes it less than its idols.

(ru) wrote: This movie was quite the trip when I saw it. These folks are the hungriest of the hungry in an industry that is governed by looks and mass appeal. Although down on there luck, they always remain optimistic. Its an interesting documentary for sure.

(es) wrote: Bad Santa is absolutely hilarious in fits and starts and provides a needed contrast from the typical holiday uplift films, however its plot is disjointed, random and messy with no real sense of stakes. Billy Bob Thornton thrusts himself wholeheartedly in the title character, but he can't completely help that the film is tonally strained in between straight crude comedy and addiction drama. There are certain moments in here where the main characters instability is played so straight it erases the comedic aspect of most of the film. The film never is quite as funny as it could be but it is a frivolous affair welcome in between viewings of Elf and It's a Wonderful Life. Rating: 57
(it) wrote: Silly, guilty pleasure type fun, but fun nonetheless.The girls are cute, the music catchy and the satire of pop music in general and pop culture in particular makes for some amusing moments, this is well worth a rental for those of you who haven't seen it, unless you're just a humorless kill-joy.My only *slight* complaint is that some of the cameos make it feel very 'of its time', but I suppose that's pop culture for you.Recommended.

(us) wrote: I am in love with this movie, and I am very surprised at how low this is rated by both critic and audience alike. Perhaps when it first came out it looked like other previous sci-fi films, yet I think this movie adds another layer of psychological confusion and thrill that "Alien" could never achieve. There is constant suspense and uncertainty throughout the film, and the unfolding mystery surrounding the alien orb found at the bottom of the ocean is so gripping that Dustin Hoffman's sub-par acting can not dramatically dent this movie's due rating. For the concept, twists, environment, and soundtrack, this sci-fi film gives a unique atmosphere to the genre while expanding elements seen in its preceding and future movies-- 5/5.Now... to read the actual book.

(br) wrote: Alyssa Milano is always awesome. I have seen this movie years ago but, since I can't remember anything about it, I don't think it could have been that memorable.
(au) wrote: All Dogs Go To Heaven, is one of those movies where you either love it, or you hate it. Me? I thought it was disappointing. It's not the worst movie I saw, but it can't hold a candle to Don Bluth's better films like The Secret of Nihm or The Land Before Time. Also, I didn't like the character of Charlie the German Shepard. I kinda thought he was a dick. I know that's the point, but it makes him more mean spirited than charming. And he ends up saving the day at the end.

I can't explain exactly why I enjoy it, I just think it's fun, different and the music by Miles Davis is a very cool touch. If you understand what Greaves was trying to do and the philosophy behind the film, it really is an amazing piece of art that is so simple and incredibly complex at the same time. Avant-garde film has never been made like this, and it is a shame that directors like Greaves and Stan Brakhage and others go widely unnoticed despite the wonderful art that they have created. Kudos to Criterion for coming out with such a great DVD package.
