3 August, Cagliari: a poor neighborhood. At three in the morning eleven-year-old Cate is woken by the screams of her eccentric neighbor.

The two of them spend the longest day of their lives between the city, the sea and a thousand adventures. But her beloved Gigi is in danger. And when everything seems lost, during the night a beautiful woman appears out of nowhere: the mysterious Aleni, a witch who apparently can see into people’s futures...

Bryan C (us) wrote: A very good movie with lots of action and humor. My only complaint is they tried to reuse stuff from the first movie that made that movie one of the best movies I've ever seen. Although...that slo-mo scene where they're running through the forest is awesome!!!
Moya W (es) wrote: It's entertaining whilst watching it. I found some of the humour to be a bit too silly for my liking. But it's easy to sit through. It's a sweet christmas comedy that's mostly there to keep you entertained. Won't make you think much when watching it or afterwards.
Jim H (es) wrote: Five vignettes about LA women who are connected only by the film's poetic story-telling.Though the film attempts to link the five stories, it falls well short of the Altman Standard for creative interweaving. This in and of itself is not damning, but I am astounded by the skilled story construction it takes to reach the Altman Standard. This film did not astound me.In fact, strong performances by the entire cast, especially Gleen Close and Holly Hunter, keep this film from becoming a maudlin soap opera. In their stories, they are subjected to clairvoyants, one a tarot card reader, the other a homeless woman, and while their respective prophecies do little to change their lives' courses, the characters are forced to confront uncomfortable realities.Another highlight is the film's dialogue, which is poetic but fits well in these characters' mouths. Writer/director Rodrigo Garcia balances lines worthy of a literary story with the naturalness of his subject matter.Overall, there isn't a lot wrong with Things You Can Tell just by Looking at Her, but it fails to be truly extraordinary like the legendary director Garcia is imitating.

G S (de) wrote: Right up there with Hana-bi as far as Kitano's existential, oneiric modern-day yakuza flicks go. While Hana-bi was more linear, this film's greatest moments are not concerned with the plot at all. Those playful sequences on the beach are almost more surprising to see than any of the sudden violence that occurs in the film. A smart and stylish flick that offers many interesting characters apart from the lead (played by Kitano himself). The fireworks fight is one of the best things ever put on film.

Robert H (ag) wrote: A low budget scifi western that does really well in the story, casting and enjoyment departments but falls flat from being a good film due to some really bad comedy.With a cast that includes George Takei, Meg Foster, Julie Newmar, Andrew Divoff and Isaac Hayes, you knew it would sport some fun performances even if it was filled with plenty of overacting and huge amounts of charicatures. I'll even give the humour a few good nods. Takei continuously makes Star Trek related jokes that are subtle enough to pass for regular dialogue to a general audience but Trek fans would pick it up right away. But with silly music cues, some slapstick, and even references to things which were only current at the time of the film (an entire Schlick joke completely doesn't make sense today) you just can't help but bring this film down a few stars in the ratings.

Steve G (it) wrote: "Zero Dark Thirty" uses drama to tell the story of the terrorism that has been happening to "Americans" for the last 10 years. The plot to "Zero Dark Thirty" is that a woman named "Maya" who works for the government and the military, has experienced the biggest terrorist attacks on "America" for the since 1998 to 2011. During her work for the government she has devoted her time to finding the psychotic man known as "Osama Bin Laden" and bringing down the his followers known as "Al Qaeda". The movie starts off with voices yelling on one of the flights of the "September 11 attacks". This is a dark way to allow the audience to know what the movie is about. Throughout the movie it shows "Maya's" character change as she goes from a shy and awkward girl to a strong and independent woman. There are some scenes in the movie that just are boring and make the movie drag on. The movie's climax is somewhat entertaining; it's filmed in the dark while occasionally showing the perspective of a soldier wearing night vision goggles. "Jessica Chastain" gives the audience a great performance as "Maya" along with "Chris Pratt", he give a splendid performance as well. "Alexandry Desplat" exceeds in composing sad and dramatic music, which fits in perfectly for every scene it is in. One of "Zero Dark Thirty's" biggest problems is the camera work; pretty much every scene in the movie the cameraman is holding the camera, for some scenes it can be found tolerable but others, it's just annoying and overused. If you are a person who enjoys historic dramas then I highly recommend you watch "Zero Dark Thirty" as it has splendid acting, an amazing plot and great music. Although the movie isn't perfect it has some issues these being a not very entertaining climax, some boring scenes and the handheld camera being used too often. I give 2012's "Zero Dark Thirty" a 7.5/10.
