Meet the Spartans
From the creators of Scary Movie and Date Movie comes this tongue-in-cheek parody of the sword-and-sandal epics, dubbed Meet the Spartans. The 20th Century Fox production was written and directed by the filmmaking team of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Sure, Leonidas may have nothing more than a cape and some leather underwear to protect him from the razor-sharp swords of his Persian enemies,

(es) wrote: Grade:High 7/10Beginners is a witty and sweet RomCom and Drama piece that earnedChristopher Plummer an Oscar and was very interesting to watch indeedalso. I felt it was solidly a good film and possibly even higher, butthat is for you to see but I will review It here and explain why I feltit was a good Romance like film.The story is as funny as it is moving and each character can be bothemotions just like that. The story is lovely and as I said witty with aspecial feeling encompassing the entire piece and a very sad vein thatruns right through until the end of the movie, you will see what I meanwhen you have finished watching the film. Finally I felt as a straightRomance it is one of the best around and doesn't get soppy or cheesyreally at any point, it is just an indie film through and through.Plummer who won the Oscar in all aspects in the best display of actinghere and was fully deserving, his funny act coupled with his revelationthat he is homosexual make for a funny man and one that shows just howloving a dying man can be(no spoilers here, it is in the synopsis).Ewan McGregor in the lead role isn't far behind and his loving flingwith Melanie Laurent is beautifully crafted together and one of thesweetest duo's I have ever seen. There isn't a massive cast either andso the big three stand out even more and you feel for them 100%.I loved the script as it was humorous and also dramatic and the way thewriter(Mike Mills, who also directs it)does it all is just so dynamicand as Ii said before, manages to craft together McGregor and Laurentperfectly. I loved the soundtrack running with it too as it showed youit wasn't just an indie film but also a sweet filled film with thesoundtrack conveying emotion even more than what is already being done.When criticism come's well I guess it is kind of slow and the film canbe confusing as you will see when it show's parts of McGregor's pastand then his present but you can get confused which one he is in. Notmuch else to say other than it is as I say slow but it doesn't hurt thefilm much at all, if anything not at all.Would recommend for those who like there RomCom's and especially if thelike Indie films with a less mainstream feel to it. I know for a factsome will find it boring as they probably don't like Romance's which isfair but even if you don't give it a go and see how you feel about it,it may just surprise you and make you realise that Romance's andRomCom's alike are not as bad you thought they were.Overall I give it a high 7/10 and felt it was quite nearly moving even furtherup but stayed at being solidly a good film. Go watch it and you mayjust love it, what I did feel is that some people will see this andeither get really loved up and want McGregor's kind of love, and thatsome would get sad at not having that love already, but in any casejust watch it and see what you think, couldn't recommend it enough.

(fr) wrote: Attempting to be The Next Generation version of the sixth film, which wrapped up the story of the original Enterprise crew, Nemesis is competent but underwhelming. Starting much like the forementioned film with a long-standing enemy facing a sudden change in situation political intrigue quickly gives way to bombast; trying too hard to be action-packed and cinematic the result is clichd and often silly. Tom Hardy's villain is a highlight, but he sheds nuance as the runtime progresses; his uniqueness giving way to bog-standard tropes. Likewise the humour is more forced than the natural expression keen wit in the TV series. The result is neither the suspense of The Undiscovered Country, which knew when to keep things understated, nor the thrills of First Contact. The writing is simply not as strong as those two exemplaries of the franchise, but it is at least successful in providing an emotionally resonant ending for The Next Generation Enterprise crew.

(kr) wrote: A simple, stylish movie. Visually it mimmicks the stylings of David Lynch, only far less sickening. There is also a spectacular Jim Jarmusch appeal, particularly in the story structure and the presentation of the more minor characters. Brad Pitt's performance is fantastic! The movie is really about his childish mentality developing into an adult mentality, all the while defacing his dreams. Pitt delivers some really awesome one-liners, and effortlessly makes this character a lovable symbol of imagination. The music is kick ass, and there's great supporting actors including Nick Cave and Catherine Keener. Also, Samuel Jackson makes an appearance as a fly bass man named Be Bop. A warm, sweet, yet tragic story.

Many scenes in the rather short film are strikingly done, and Alan Clarke's realism is impressive and spot-on, basically if Alex from A Clockwork Orange came across the Thatcher era (with decidedly less optimistic results). Writer David Leland said in 2008 he had a sequel written with Trevor in his 40's but as of yet can't get backing for it to be made.
