(es) wrote: The title is telling. Do artists create art for art sake or for the prospects in the gift shop? While Banksy's art is thought-provoking and this is a Banksy directed film, the subject of the film, Mr. Brainwash, is less about commentary on brainwashing in media / pop culture and more about or maybe less about an original idea. I'm not sure about this one.

(es) wrote: Fat people don't whine about their weight THAT much...Whatever Nikki represented outside and to everyone was what it feels inside sometimes - I can believe that. I've heard "fat" about 300 times in this movie, people don't give a shit about other people. The movie is more unrealistic than "Cinderella". What was with the mother "imagination" character? Ridiculous.
(br) wrote: Okay, these movies are becoming a guilty pleasure. Your typical Utopian family movie, in the vein of Beethoven, Father of the Bride, etc. Very sweet and a couple of genuinely funny moments.Still wondering why Bonnie Hunt doesn't get more notice... she's brilliant. She's perfect in these 'mother' roles.Anyway, as I said, I enjoy these films. So they're nothing new, nothing out of the ordinary, but there's a sentimental old fool living in me who has made these films a guilty pleasure.
(kr) wrote: That rarest of gems, an ambitious British film. Doesn't always work but very watchable when it does, with some imaginative touches from the director especially with the soundtrack.
(fr) wrote: Good cast. The story doesn't always work, but it does often enough to be interesting. I liked the score. I wish Emily Watson had been in it more, she was great. Well written but it's just not very memorable.
(br) wrote: Funny, lil british comedy that shows Kate Beckinsale before she got her teeth fixed and got hott sporting a very lesbo looking pixie haricut and Stuart Townsend sporting an equally gay looking peter pan haircut before he got hot. Over all a pleasing fun movie.
(es) wrote: God awful. Disappointing, considering the cast. I usually like Dana Carvey, but I found his character the most annoying out of the three brothers. Thank God for Richard Jenkins who delivers the few truly funny lines in the entire film. Also, Madchen Amick is cute.
(br) wrote: It was a bit more fun that I thought it would be. But it was kind of hard to accept Reaves as the half breed and chosen one type. It was a fun romp, but not much more, for me.
(mx) wrote: Myers is surprisingly good in this film, even though its script is filled with clichs. However, the movie is probably one of Myers' best. If that's an insult or not is up for you to decide.

(mx) wrote: Powell plays a negligent workaholic attorney who drives his wife Loy into the arms of a parasitic gigolo, who incidentally winds up dead. Although without just about any comic traces, Evelyn Prentice is good for what it is--a somewhat hammy 30s melodrama with a hint of suspense. Definitely not the Thin Man but nothing to complain (too much) about either. As always Powell and Loy are great together.
(us) wrote: Your typical site trolls reviewed this movie and gave it bad reviews. Lets look at the movie as a whole. New director; low budget; Great story. Give the movie the credit is deserves
(br) wrote: More interesting than most because of the backstory of the lead character but it's still plagued by a mediocre script, a bad performance from josh duhamel, and over dramatic at times like many romances, Safe haven still would've been a decent romance if it wasn't for its stupid twist ending that doesn't make sense
