(de) wrote: The Borderlands, or Final Prayer, is a really good horror movie that is surprisingly not about the scares this time. The found footage is done really well and is shot well too with the low and high quality of it. The characters are good, and the acting is really good. The chemistry between the main leads is great and the conversation they talk about are really interesting. The script is really good, and it has some scares that are a bit effective. The plot is nothing special, and it's a slow film that'll get some viewers bored. The second act gets crazy in an exciting way, and the ending is a bit terrifying to say at least. The Borderlands is a bit of a scary movie that it's refreshing to see a found-footage film done right.
(mx) wrote: Wow i watched this last night on netflix cause i was bored and it was a mistake. The first thing i gotta talk about is the one impressive thing about this film. The overall cinematography was actually really good. Now for an attempt to mock transformers they had only 1 design for the big robots and to make the one that transforms into a car distinct it has wheels on its arms and legs otherwise it just looked stupid. This film had a cast that gave performances that ranged from good to mediocre at best. Bruce Boxleitner gave a great i performance while a portion of the female cast was selected cause they are attractive and on merit. While this is an independent film the special effects were bad. I mean really bad. I understand that due to low budgets CG effects can be expensive but they did not even try the robots where barely animated they mostly just stood or floated. In closing the only thing this film had going for it was that it was shot well.

(au) wrote: As a huge Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm fan, this movie is a fucking disaster. The script, while nothing special, is alright, but Larry David is working with an across-the-board terrible cast, especially Craig Bierko, who tries way too hard to be zany. Steven Weber is trying way too hard to be Jerry Seinfeld. There's a couple of laughs, but it's mostly a disappointingly unfunny bore.
(mx) wrote: This one was a bit of a sleeper that came and went near the end of Jean-Claude Van Damme's commercial height. It actually makes for a fine, slow burn, Russian mafia crime thriller. Van Damme still does some kicking and there's some cool set pieces via director Ringo Lam, but this one is really more of a chase-mystery.

(kr) wrote: Saw this film for the first time when I was about 15. I just watched it over 20 years later and it still holds up. And still leaves a lasting effect after the credits role. Good piece of American cinema .
(mx) wrote: I can easily see why this movie wasn't embraced with open arms by the mass theatre going public. It is vague, but I enjoyed it. Meg Tilly's performance was spot on. Anne Bancroft not only made her character real, but shined in her performance. Jane Fonda was a good Jane Fonda. Her acting reminds me of Joan Crawford.

(it) wrote: Art vs. commerce, work life vs. personal life: this film immediately identifies these contradictions, and then just as quickly loses interest in them, instead regressing into a double Oedipal drama. It's melodrama, but not the good kind, as from Sirk (or Ray). And not nearly as good as La Dolce Vita, or Sunset Boulevard, or even Contempt.
(nl) wrote: Another stellar example of the genre in its prime from a master filmmaker. Anthony Mann definitely knew how to make them. Gary Cooper and company all give good performances as well. The landscape and sets work on every level as does the story. Many of the best westerns definitely don't have endings that are exactly happy and this is no exception. In this sense, the western is very similar to the noir. It's part of what makes both genres so effective and so powerful for me. This is a spectacularly big picture. It is a simple story about a simple man and his struggles. However, it does pale in comparison to Appaloosa, which I just saw last night.

(nl) wrote: So I got these three movies from NetFlix with high hopes. Smooth Talk is based on the short story by Joyce Carol Oates "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been" I loved the short story but the movie absolutely sucked. Even with the potential from some good actors (Laura Dern,Treat Williams and Mary Kay Place) Its just one of those bad adaptations from a really great story. They totally changed the ending which just ruined the whole story. I'm getting mad just thinking about it and can't continue. The Fluffer. . . gee what can I say. . . it sucked. I think that sums it up. Only good thing about this movie was that the porn star was great eye candy (until he dyed his hair). This was the only reason I was able to watch the whole thing. Home at the End of the World was just such a great story. Didn't read the book this one was based on so no comparisons to tarnish my thoughts. I thought it was really good except I though it ended kind of abruptly. But coming from the life I have lived I felt a great connection with the main character and found myself crying on several occations from the emotional similarities between myself and Bobby.
