Pictures of the Old World
A visual essay on the forgotten parts of Eastern Europe. The outskirts here are a Slovakian town in the Tatra Mountains. Though censored for 17 years, Dusan Hanáks poetic visual essay is not a political or even social film. It goes to far deeper and more fundamental levels of human experience. Inspired by the photographs of Martin Martinek, the films power lies in its unusual portraits of people whose raw visual beauty radiates from their very souls

So to compete with them, they have to go through alteration, even if they loose the origins of their film's theme concept. This story is same as many similar themed flicks. For me, it looked like a mini Superman film, but made for kids.The best thing about it was, keeping everything simple. And then the pace, which actually somewhat saved the film. I hooked to it from the beginning till the conclusion, but familiarity is what killed my interest and entertainment. The characters were okay, not developed well enough. But keeping young audience in mind, it does good. Because going deep is unnecessary stretch.The story of a high school boy who transferred back to a small town where has born. As he begins to hear a lot about his father from the local people, he becomes motivated to know more about him. But one day when something goes wrong, the next day he wakes up with great power. Not knowing how to handle it, he befriends with an unusual creature and together they fight those who are after them.Initially I thought it was related to 'Real Steel', but realised only while watching it it is completely different. From the director of 'Sorority Row', I think he did nothing wrong. Those who watch less films would enjoy it better. Visually okay, with all those graphics. Since it is PG13, I would say the target audience is the little ones. So from their perspective, it is acceptable. But I warn the grownups, stay away, or be like them while watching it, in order to get entertained.5/10
(us) wrote: A slightly loose script compared to its first installment, but Ip Man 2 makes that up with even more stylish direction and tense action. The film continues its momentum with more dazzling sequences and even ups the ante when you fuse it with the emotional flare and uplifting drama that can be formulaic to 'Rocky'. 4.5/5

(kr) wrote: This is an important film and portrays the stress of a family in the midst of postpartum depression and the severe stresses on fathers during this adjustment, too. I appreciated all the overtones and the themes of the script. Interestingly, all the baby's problems begin 2 days after vaccination, but they don't press this point. Small town boy makes it big, interfering mother in law, intermarriage, one of them is Jewish, Fans of Sam Rockwell will love this film. His acting is really good, and there is a love scene.

(Note that Frank is a hedonist, and Julia is taken in by it and joins him). But that point really didn't come across in the film at all.
(kr) wrote: The pinnacle of the buddy cop genre, 'Beverly Hills Cop' blends action, crime and comedy in one of the finest police movies ever made, starring Eddie Murphy as the popular Axel Foley, a Detroit cop bound for Beverly Hills in search of those who murdered his friend in cold blood. With fantastic comedy that seems largely improvised by Murphy and some very well-executed action scenes, 'Beverly Hills Cop' stands as one of the finest comedies of the 1980's and gave the world one of the most memorable police officers and film theme tunes of all time.
(de) wrote: Campy fun! John Malkovich in particular is hilarious. The premise is utterly absurd but the film goes with it the whole way.
