Mickey One torrent reviews

Carlos I (es) wrote: Decent biopic about the man that franchised McDonald's. It's an okay portrayal of the corruption of success. From what I know, this is a watered down, candy coated version of the snake that robbed those brothers of their dream. While it's entertaining enough, I think it would've been more interesting to see the more accurate portrayal of that scumbag...

Bengel W (kr) wrote: Direction and editing give this screenplay a quality edge that makes this a must see movie. The actors only get moments in which to act and they make those moments linger in the mind tastefully. It is a superb genius to have a movie on that, which we all adore, the mystery of a few captured words from strangers and the fun of placing them into sense. Wonderful. Nibbles: Jamaican Coffee and Muffin.

Richard W (it) wrote: A feminist propaganda film with an amazing soundtrack. And lots of flesh eating.

Ben B (gb) wrote: A flawed but wonderful movie.The musical is a better adaptation of Doctorow's masterpiece; but with is great cast and terrific production value this one has great moments too

Eric J (nl) wrote: This sequel wasn't too bad... Boasting an ensemble cast of many Hollywood favorites and having good special effects. The premise was a stretch but then that's de rigeur for these types of films. Better than "The Towering Inferno" IMHO but definitely cut from the same bolt of Irwin Allen fabric.

Kieran O (ru) wrote: t is always difficult to make a fair and accurate assessment of a Hammer horror production, particularly one with the superlative quality of this particular work. ?Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' is something of a change in pace for the series as Frankenstein himself appears to have fallen into madness rather than practicing misunderstood and unethical medicine as in the previous instalments. His methods are still unethical, that cannot be debated, but there is a noticeable emphasis this time around on the Baron's work being for his own advancement rather than for the benefit of man. Although the typical self-promoting dialogue from Frankenstein would indicate that he is attempting the surgery for the benefit of mankind, there is an undoubted distinction between the Frankenstein of this movie and the ones of the past. This new direction for the character is coupled with a monstrous personality that continually dictates that nobody matters as long as the Baron gets what he desires. Frankenstein is willing to go to any lengths necessary in order to accomplish his goal and his pure focus towards his goal only wanes a mere couple of times. The Baron's deterioration into lunacy is exceedingly well portrayed during a particularly violent (but short) rape sequence. The intensity on Cushing's face adds to the believability of the scene and the image is so powerful that it could linger in the viewers mind and give the movie a new, raw and brutal edge. Peter Cushing is able to adapt his style of acting to fit the new persona of the Baron and offers a remarkably visceral performance rather than the calculated performances of the past. As with almost every movie that Cushing participated in, his on-screen presence is powerful and commanding and this alerts the viewer to the necessity of paying attention to his character.The film follows the archetypal pattern for Hammer horrors. The film starts off powerfully with two predominantly memorable sequences, the most sensational of which is the entrance of the diabolical Baron when he terrifies a petty thief. From there, the film moves towards the mechanics of the Baron's actions and his resolution to accomplish all that he seeks out to undertake. It is during this `mid-section' of the film that everything slows down while the emphasis is no longer on scares or action. However, through some very proficient direction from Terence Fisher the pacing and structure of this movie almost makes ?Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' pre-eminent when compared to other movies of the era. Without a shadow of a doubt, ?Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' should be held in the highest echelon of excellence within the Hammer family if only for its superb composition alone. The movie ends with an exhilarating climax yet the viewer could feel cheated by the abrupt nature in which the film ends. The hasty ending is one of the few faults in this movie but in retrospect serves the series well as it does leave certain questions unanswered. The other faults with the movie are so intermittent that although they are noticeable, they rarely detract from the viewing experience. Having said that, there are a couple of scenes which seem to be unnecessarily prolonged which temporarily obstruct the otherwise smooth, flowing feel that the movie has. These scenes represent the very few moments where a viewer could temporarily lose their concentration on the movie. However, even considering the prolonged nature of the scenes in question, one cannot fault the pacing of the movie as Terence Fisher's direction shows impressive capability and he makes these scenes fit into the movie almost seamlessly.Even with the sporadic lapses in quality ?Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed' is fundamental viewing for any serious horror movie fan. This is a movie based around great performances, stunning visuals, a haunting and atmospheric soundtrack as well as quintessential Hammer-style horror. My rating for ?Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'

Leena L (kr) wrote: I am sorry. the only good things in this were Hugh Grant's accent, J.K. Simmons, Marisa Tomei and Allison Janney. For the rest... please could you give HUgh Grant a decent script the few times he can be bothered to make a film?!

Brian G (ag) wrote: Considering the majority of the movie is just watching the couple floating around, they did a surprisingly effective job making this movie. Predictable at times, but tense nonetheless.

Andy P (nl) wrote: One of my favourite films. It plays as a very thoughtful interegation on the human psyche. The audience is never quite sure of what the reality of the situation is. Burt Lancaster and Susan Surandon give fantastic performances as two people whose desire for both the percieved better past and the hopeful future has distorted their reality in the present. There is a moment in the film where Lancaster's Lou has a reality check given to him based on the actions he takes. Its a fantasic scene in the film that creates great drama and an even better ending.
