(ca) wrote: Half this movie is great. The "downtime" is very classic Star Trek: exploration and character development, while a fairly interesting story develops. The battle scenes are stupid-ridiculous, especially one corresponding to a certain musical number. They are so over-the-top and last for such sustained periods, that they lose any kind of weight. The fan service is dialed down a notch from Into Darkness, and it's a better story than Into Darkness, but it's not nearly as solid as Star Trek 2009, and nowhere near as good as most of TOS movies.

(au) wrote: It's a film that REALLY wants to be a supernatural epic....but it's not. It's just bloated and kind of stupid, and it has absolutely ZERO resolution at the end. All its hours of build-up lead to absolutely nothing. The best part of the film is the way the Liquid Helium is used at the end.
(gb) wrote: It was with some trepidation that I screwed up my courage and went to see the latest offering from the enfant terrible of modern cinema, Gaspar No, who has built a reputation (notoriety?) on films of extreme sex and violence. He is responsible for the only film I've never dared to watch - Irreversible. Don't get me wrong; I love violent films. I find them cathartic, especially after Manchester United have lost!! Oldboy and Gangster Number 1 are just about as good as it gets for me. But, and you can call me a wimp here, I have this thing about violence against women. And Irreversible contains a lengthy rape scene that many critics claim is the most extreme in conventional cinema, and virtually unwatchable. Sorry, can't be doing with it. Move on. As it happens, I needn't have worried about violence against women in Enter the Void. There's plenty of sex, though. Having said that, the women here do seem to be enjoying it! The story involves an American couple with two young kids (Oscar and Linda, played, respectively, by Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta), who have recently relocated to Japan. There is a horrific car crash (repeated several times throughout the film) that sees the parents instantly killed and the youngsters orphaned. The siblings enter into a blood pact and the older brother vows always to watch out for and protect his younger sister. For ever and ever. The pact is soon to be put to the test, as the little girl is taken away, screaming for her brother, to be rehoused with new foster parents in a different city. Full of remorse for seemingly letting his sister down, the brother promises that he will earn enough money when he grows up to bring his sister back, and for them to be reunited. He achieves this by dealing drugs in Tokyo's underworld. The film starts with the brother and sister together again. The many years apart have strengthened and transformed the bond between them, and their feelings for each other now appear closer than the normal brother / sister relationship. Linda is supplied with drugs by her brother and gets sucked into a seedy downtown night-life, working as a pole-dancer in a local club and, one is lead to believe, earning a bit on the side in others ways. Things come to a head when Oscar is caught up in a drugs bust by the police and is shot as he tries to dispose of his supplies in the toilet of the bar / nightclub - The Void - where he does most of his dealing. The rest of the film follows Oscar's spirit as he / it attempts to fulfil his childhood vow - to always look out for his sister. That is the straightforward narrative, but the story is not told chronologically. It is gradually revealed to the viewer through a series of flashbacks, apparently shown in random sequence, that gradually paint in the picture. Moreover, most of the tale is seen from the perspective of Oscar. Literally so, as we are in effect Oscar's eyes and ears for much of the film. The void in the title of the film is both the nightclub where Oscar meets his end, and the life-after-death that follows it. The idea is extended in a series of metaphors - sometimes imaginative, sometimes irritating - that include tracing the path of the bullet through Oscar's body, and full penetrative sex viewed from inside the vagina! The film confounds current convention in having the title sequence up front at the start, in bold text and accompanied by strobe lighting and thumping house music. The director uses hand-held cinma vrit camera techniques that accentuate the disorienting effects of drugs, and which mirror similar methods used in films like Cloverfield and Blair Witch Project. There are startling contrasts between the claustrophobic sets of cramped Tokyo flats and dark, smoky nightclubs, and the spiralling views of the big city as viewed from Oscar's spirit perspective. Enter the Void is a spectacular sensual feast with the crazy kaleidoscopic images that accompany Oscar's 'trips' set against the neon nightmare of the metropolis, and the random couplings of strangers in anonymous hotels that surround him. The film worked for me until the last twenty minutes when, in my opinion, it lapsed into little more than high class porn. Worse, it conflated and confused the clarity of the central proposition by over-egging the pudding. Too many new ideas and stimulations are introduced that, in the end, detract from the main theme. At the same time, Enter the Void is likely to prove to be the most talked about film of 2010. It will be praised and reviled in equal measure. But the debate about No will continue. Is he a cinematic Jesus? Or just a very naughty boy?

(au) wrote: I'll admit that I'm not a fan of David Lynch's surreal art style in his movies, but this short is creepy, haunting, and nightmare inducing. It consists of three humanoid rabbits in a room with a very odd script, mysterious noises, and an insane laugh track that plays every once in a while. Mesmerizing in a way, I find this a lot easier to grasp than other works of Lynch, albeit being difficult to watch at times. It's dark, depressing, eerie, and bizarre, resulting in a very well crafted atmosphere. There's a certain "curiosity" added into it, which will either make people absorbed into it, or confused and scratching their heads, which I feel is completely understandable, and I feel the same way for his other movies like "Eraserhead". However, it's so mysterious and suspenseful to the point where you repeatedly ask questions, but part of what makes this experience so great is answering them and figuring out what Lynch is portraying through his hellish and somewhat depressing "Rabbits" short.

(kr) wrote: UNTAMED HEART is a fairy tale- but not a well concieved one. But I have to admit- I liked it. The relationship between Slater and Tomei is a great, very moving one. But the film is rather cold and cynical towards Slater's character, and you can't help but like the character- no matter how strange he is here. That is a mistake this script did not intend to make- Slater's performance is very good here.
(it) wrote: "when i was 17, i went to this famous concert... woodstock" - what can you say, about Mcbain? it works on all levels, as a harsh polictical commentary on the plight of south american nations, as a reflection on the relationship between men in combat, and as a film where a man is shot, shot again, blown up by a rocket and then crushed by a burning watchtower. I bought this on dvd for a pound, and its worth a pound.... in comedy gold.
(fr) wrote: This was a film that I had only been aware of by reputation, as it was long out of print by the time I ever heard of it on DVD. I'm pleased to have finally given it a spin via the newly released Arrow Video Blu-ray, as it features some bizarre and over the top make-up designs, as well as we meet a young man realizes that his family isn't what he expected them to be, morphing into nightmarish new creatures that have to be seen to be believed.Well worth a rental at least, especially for any fans of body horror.

(br) wrote: DRACULA UNTOLD departs from your typical vampire movie, exploring the motivations of a husband and father and prince as he seeks the power to overcome the invading Turks (Ottomans). He seeks power in the darkest cave from the most evil creature imaginable. But he uses his new found power unselfishly. But, oh the price he pays. Worth seeing.
