(au) wrote: For a lowish budget film, the acting in this is incredible. The directing, special effects, script, editing, all fabulous. I can't wait to watch it again. It was as if Zeus himself hurled down a thunderbolt at this young filmmaker and said "Make thee a masterpiece!" It was just that awesome. Oh, and everything I just said is sarcasm. I'm not even sure what it is I just suffered through. However, it did have its one bright spot. Extra half star for employing the one guy who might be uglier than Danny Trejo!
(de) wrote: Very interesting movie to use the vision by the mad detective to reflect the "ghost" (sin thought) of individuals. It is difficult to express this idea in the movie, but the way that the story developing is also brilliant to allow the audience to understand: Introduce the strange behavior of the mad detective -> set up the rule that what can be seen by the mad detective -> the "ghost" that individual can have could be multiple -> the "ghost" that various characters possessed will change as the story progress. After watching the movie, I am interested to know how many "ghosts" I have .... :P
(de) wrote: There's plenty of eye candy -- gorgeous scenery, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous people. Unfortunately, the movie's unwieldy, episodic structure undercuts Theron's impressive performance. Interesting story line. Another late-night movie channel find that managed to hold my interest through the whole thing. not much bad but could have been much better.

(it) wrote: A prosperous Yakuza is sent by his boss to settle a gang war between rival factions but when the violence escalates he begins to suspect that the whole situation is a set up designed to steal his turf. Sonatine is the film where Beat Takeshi began to perfect his trademark style of laconic, offbeat characters embroiled within a world of violence that is streaked with his blackest of the black sense of humour. It's probably one of the most laidback gangster films you will ever see, as despite the sporadic bursts of dramatic and extreme violence much of the film is spent with the off duty gangsters while they are bored and bonding on a sleepy beach front. In fact, the lack of glamorisation of the bloodshed and the unsentimental approach to the characters and their relationships make this pretty much the antithesis of the likes of John Woo and his ilk. Kitano instead prefers to show the ugliness of their lives in contrast to the unlikely friendships that are the result leading up to an affecting and unforgettable climax. Embellished by a soundtrack that is understated and sparse yet strangely beautiful - a perfect reflection of the film itself - Sonatine is a true original.

The set up has Martians from mars with green paint on their faces questioning why their own children look so unhappy, so they devise a plan to kidnap Santa Claus from the planet earth. And by the time they get to earth, they bump into a couple of kids and informed them that the real Santa lives in the North Pole which is exactly where they went taking along with them are the 2 children, since they had just found out their real intentions and don't like the idea of the real Santa being kidnapped. The two kids unsuccessfully did make attempts to warn him, but was later captured by a fake looking robot which is obviously a guy wearing a fake looking robot suit sent by the Martians themselves- also their is also a guy wearing a fake looking polar bear suit who walks with his hands and knees. To say anymore would be pointless, but the thing is that I have no idea how I was able to watch this all the way through without cringing as opposed to some big budgeted movies. And I guess it's because I've used to see my fair share of movies similar to this one during my younger years which it wouldn't take much to entertain me, meaning that low budget production costs is sometimes not a requirement to watch some of these movies intended for kids going into pre-school. Let's see, their was "Electric Company", Mister Rogers" to "Sesame Street" which it wouldn't take much to get children entertained when people are wearing fake looking costumes and bad makeup. I don't hate this since it's demographic is clearly obvious, but at the same time I don't like it either. 2 out of 4 stars

(fr) wrote: The murderous Scarlet Claw brings Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to a village in Canada. With a whole lot of cold bodies in-between, and a mysterious story about an actor, who is supposed to seek vengeance for what happened to him a long time ago, there is no easy way out of this case. And while Holmes is on it faster than one might suspect, Dr. Watson still remains as unconvinced and lost as he always is. Great on-location shots give a perfectly nightmarish tone to this entry.
