Akash S (it) wrote: It cannot be called a true Bollywood movie, but it's a true Indian movie, rich with human elements which can be felt by any person. Tradition vs Modern ways - it's the underlying element knitting the sub-plots together.Mira Nair's romantic dramedy 'Monsoon Wedding' has genuine likability value, filled with colour and energy. All the comedy, love, commentary on social issues, and drama are blended well with the music, dance and celebration. Mrs. Nair knows well how to delicately but gracefully deal with the human elements depicted in the movie. Declan Quinn's cinematography and Mychael Danna's score help us to be a part of the festivities.The characters are brutally real, relateable and charming. The unsure bride-to-be who still hasn't gotten over her past relationship, the completely occupied father-of-the-bride dealing with debts and responsibilities, the bored but committed mother trying to find meaning, the usually bad-tongued wedding planner trying to find love, the unmarried cousin still in pain from her childhood molestation trauma - all these and many such characters just fill the story with brimming honesty. The actors have done a brilliant job.

Private U (mx) wrote: It's not quite as "oddball" as the synopsis makes it out to be--it's a subtle spoof of the western, with Gary Cooper playing a cowboy who can't shoot to save his life (and there are a couple of times when he has to do just that). He plays his usual earnest, innocent character with only a loose grasp of everything that's happening around him. Loretta Young is his love interest--a sharpshooter whom is seemingly untrustworthy (or is she?) and William Demarest has to be one of the funniest sidekicks I've seen in a western. The movie has a lot of great twists and turns, and (although it is very light-hearted) a handful of great scenes, such as when Cooper first kisses and Young, and his showdown with the outlaw Monte Jarrad.

Jonathan D (ag) wrote: Since the Brothers Grimm penned their morbid fairy tales (and probably before), children and adults have escaped into fantasy to safely explore the dangers of reality. Tales such as Hansel and Gretel, and in the last century The Wizard of Oz, have provided imaginative worlds with dangers at every turn. The purpose of such tales was always to warn, educate, and provide a backdrop for moral instruction.Such is true of Coraline, a cinematic fairy tale crafted by writer Neil Gaiman and director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas). Based on a book by Gaiman, this visually astounding stop-motion masterpiece is a reminder that not all fairy tales have wistful princesses and happy musical numbers (sorry, Disney). This is a return to the creepy morality tales of yore, and while young children may have nightmares from the unsettling mood and tone, older children and adults will likely delight in both its imagination and its message.Coraline's title character is a plucky and resilient child (expertly voiced by Dakota Fanning) who has moved to a dusty, lonely old house in Washington with her parents. Both are neglectful in their own way: her father is caring enough, but is constantly aloof, while her mother (voiced by Teri Hatcher) is so busy that she hardly notices her daughter, and is often annoyed by her when she does.One night, Coraline discovers a portal into a parallel existence: same house, same parents, but here everything is exactly as she wishes it were in reality. The dreariness of her true home is replaced by vibrant colors and spectacle. Her neglectful parents are replaced by updated versions who live only to lavish her with affection and wish-fulfillment. Soon Coraline begins to greatly prefer the alternate life to her actual one. It's all seems perfect, but she (and the audience) cannot shake the unsettling suspicion that something isn't quite right. Only a sage old black cat (who is realistically silent in the "real world," but suavely vocal in other) seems to understand the dangers behind the seductive facade of Coraline's dream world.To say more would be to ruin the surprises, but suffice to say that the film contains excellent messages for those who look for discussion points to share with their children afterward. The dream world serves as a perfect metaphor for the cunningly disguised lies of harmful people, as well their tactics of using subtle counterfeits to grant people's wishes in the short run, while slowly entangling (and later chaining) them in the long run.As my mother always said: "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." With regards to Coraline's dream parents, they may be seen as a practical warning against slick strangers who might lure children away by promising them exactly what they want (much like the "candy man" character in Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang). The black cat, whose warnings initially go unheeded, may be seen to serve a similar purpose to parents, friends, and teachers. He is a wise, caring character who sees and understands things that the protagonist does not yet comprehend, tries to keep her from harm, and helps her when she is in peril.Furthermore, the film not only reminds parents of the need to give their children attention and affection, but also helps children understand the stresses of parenting and the need for gratitude for the parents they do have.In addition to serving as a lasting morality tale, Coraline is a terrific artistic achievement. While computer-generated animation is en vogue at the moment, the terrific and nearly seamless stop-motion animation here is something different and gorgeous to behold. The film is currently showing both in 3D and as a regular feature; I recommend that you see it in 3D if possible, as the richly designed sets and characters were meant to be experienced in that format. Far from a mere gimmick, the 3D in this case actually brings more life to the story, revealing layers and depth that were actually created by hand and filmed, one meticulous frame at a time.Parents should be warned, that while the film contains no real violence, it is full of unsettling images and a creepy atmosphere that will doubtless give nightmares to little ones (much like the wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz, though this is a good deal scarier). There is mild profanity. A scantily-dressed and buxom elderly woman, though a clay-animated figure and far from titillating, may be offensive to some. That said, for older kids, teens, and adults who possess rich imaginations and an appreciation for this type of film, Coraline is a terrific night at the movies, and worth the added fee to view in 3D.

Christopher E (ag) wrote: The third installment in the series is noticeably better than the second, even if it still faces similar problems that have continually plagued this franchise.Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. When a mysterious event from Earth's past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.The "Transformers" franchise has faced its ups and downs, albeit mostly downs. But with the third installment, they looked to change a few things up. If anything, all of those changes were really positive overall, but the writers still don't know how to capture that essence of these fun, alien robots and there's still something missing. Although it was a good step in the right direction for this franchise, there's still a lot of work to be done.Shia LaBeouf returns for the final time, reprising his role as Sam. As a a fan first and "critic" second, I still claim that Shia is a great actor. Although the roles and films he's been in aren't the brightest, it doesn't take away the fact that he's a great actor with a lot of talent. This is someone who can capture that emotional intensity of a role while really bringing out the true nature of the character at hand. I absolutely love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as she's a huge step up from Megan Fox. Not that Megan Fox is terrible, but she certainly wasn't the best. Hearing them cast a Victoria Secret Model as the leading female role raised some eyebrows, but she's a pretty decent actress overall and she was utilized much better than Fox's character was. John Turturro was still overused in this film and was much more of an annoyance than a help. His character is still annoying and bratty and he really serves no purpose. They do bring back the crew of Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson, which is a nice continuity aspect for these films.The special effects, like always, are still fantastic. Despite the ridiculous overuse of firework explosions in random places, you still have to admit that everything looks fantastic. Everything from the transformers to the action, it all looks fantastic. This is a perfect example of the epicness that sci-fi movies should look like, and it's one of the strongest attributes the franchise has held. The story is a bit better than the previous film, but still a bit overdone and unfathomable at times. I mean, come on, bringing an entire planet over to Earth? How does that even work? How does that solve anything?? Minor spoiler there I guess, sorry. But despite some of those head-scratchers, I like how the story feels darker than any of the previous films. Even the trailers gave off this extremely dark vibe and although the film never really captured that, I liked the slight adjustment in tone. In the end, there's not much to say about this movie because I would just be repeating what I said about the other films. I feel like at this point, it's just how these movies execute because they all have very similar problems and very similar positives. I did enjoy this more than the second film but not more than the first, and that has to be some sort of consolidation. If you're a fan of the franchise, you'll like this movie. If not, this movie won't offer anything new and will probably just run your patience down to zero.
Alex r (ca) wrote: Witchboard is a delightfully creepy Horror film, with moments of tense suspense. Directed by the man who brought us Night of the Demons, Witchboard is a neglected low-budget gem of late 80's Horror. Kevin Tenney is a fine director and he once again proves it with this film. Witchboard is a great film, if you don't take it seriously. People are quick to judge on this film, without really trying to grasp the concept. The premise of the film is quite interesting, using the Ouija Board as a plot device is an idea not seen since The Exorcist, and instead of conjuring up a Demon, the evil spirit this time around is that of a mass murderer. In way this can branch into slasher film territory just for that aspect of the film, but it still retains a lot of its supernatural elements. Witchboard is a film that is a lot of fun; just don't take it seriously or anything. This is the type of film where you just need to unwind and enjoy something that's different. The pacing of the film is well done, and it permits the director to build up the tension and scares on screen to fairly good results, I know I did. The first entry of the series is a classic of 80's low budget Horror fare. But what really lacks is the terrible third entry that followed. I will always enjoy Tenney's original film, and he is one great talent in the Horror game. Night of The Demons and this film proves it. Witchboard does have a semi decent cast, but you don't care for anyone really because they're not likeable, and in the end you're kind of happy that a few get wacked off. These are not a perfect film, but if you're the type to enjoy cheesy, fun horror films, then give this one a look. Witchboard is a worthy piece of Horror from the second half of the 80's and in the hands of director Kevin Tenney, it's a terrific little gem often dismissed and it shouldn't be.
