(kr) wrote: Lots of elements in this film feel a bit cheesy and it's hard to parse through what was original storytelling and what is cliche. Even so the nature of when this was made makes this an interesting watch and there are a number of very memorable moments. Specifically, I love a scene in which a navy man is looking after the army troops they are transporting while being bombed. There is a wonderful moment where all of the army men are flinching but the navy man, Center shot, just looks irritated.
(it) wrote: I'm shocked that this has 94% from the critics. It's inconsistent in itself and with the other Frankenstein movies, and it's frankly just obnoxious. Excessive copying of elements from the previous two movies (characters say, "he's alive" about 7 times throughout the movie, and the Monster is in a coma from being struck by lightening from which he is revived by being raised up on the table during a storm) ensure nothing original makes itself into this sequel. Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein were masterpieces, but this is totally irrelevant. Plus, the film felt twice as long as it should have been.

(de) wrote: After proving to be the right man for the job Warner wanted, David Yates became the second director to return to the franchise, but after the mediocre job that the previous returning director did in "Chamber of Secrets", could Yates make a better job the second time around?After the Ministry confrontation of the last film, wizarding world is afraid of Voldemorts power. In this time of fear a glimpse of hope appears as Harry and Dumbledore find out a way to beat He Who Must Not be Named. Let's get into this right away and skip the already mentioned praise of my reviews of the previous installments (including Yates' meticulous but hollow direction). Previously I considered the sixth chapter of the saga as a step up to from the fifth chapter but after revisiting this film I can say this film has the worst script of the saga as it is basically buildup as a mystery but in the first 10 minutes they literally spelled out the climax and in case if you missed it (which I don't even think is possible) they keep repeating it, so when some scenes try to foreshadow or reveal more information regarding the mystery they are pointless. In addition this chapter is desperate to be funny as it is the only film of the saga as it inserts clumsy/awkward teen comedy (these jokes are something you would see in films like "Mean Girls", "Bring it On" or some other teen film), plus they keep inserting needless romances (I think the filmmakers realize how useless and one note Ron has been throughout the saga so they give him a romance as Harry and Hermione had already pass that). But the biggest issue I have with this script is the fact it just keeps wasting precious time, I mean they could have easily integrated information of the last book or just streamline/delete some plot points, but instead they keep their attention on the unnecessary trash I already mentioned. But let's be fair and give credit where credit is due, I liked Jim Broadbent's character and I love the creative revelation regarding Lord Voldemort's weakness (granted, it shows that Rowling was making this story as she went along, but it solidly explains why this villain seems unkillable). "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" is probably the worst film of the saga (it is my least favorite) as it has the worst script as it repeats some of the problems of its predecessor and keeps wasting time instead of wrapping up the story. While it's ending promises an interesting ending for the saga and has you question characters, the journey to get to that is not worth it.

(au) wrote: There are some moments of pure brilliance in this mockumentary, but it falls flat due to Woody Allen not getting to do much in the film at all. He is seen in photographs here and there, with minimal scenes of dialogue. Due to the documentary nature, the laughs are fewer. There are moments here and there that are simply amazing, but as a whole I think this is one of Allen's lesser films.
(ru) wrote: God's Not Dead was actually not that bad of a movie. My only problem with it, is that it was too predictable. But then again, most movies are. I don't think a 15% rating is very fitting. This movie deserves at least a 55%
