(au) wrote: Great adaptation, animation is nicely done.
(ag) wrote: Again, caught this on a flight, was attracted to it because it is from the director of Ipman, but this one is a massive letdown. A story that pretends to be science based fantasy and a corny campus volleyball movie, and ends up being deeply unsatisfying.
(ca) wrote: This is a good movie. While this movie heavily relies on dialogue, the story is told very well and by the end, the viewer will end up liking the characters even more. The acting is pretty good and it has the realistic feel of two people having a conversation throughout the whole movie. Definitely worth the rent.

(es) wrote: Very powerful documentary, excellently edited together. It would be hard not to be moved by the footage. It makes you wonder how on earth this country elected the incompetent Bush administration.
(mx) wrote: I've always thought Greengrass' hand held camera style never matched the material. But with 'Bloody Sunday' he found material that it compliments to near perfection. The horrific events that took place in 1972 are chaotically captured. The end credits playing U2 are very moving.

(nl) wrote: Platoon is one of those quintessential war films. It's one of the most important films of the 1980's to cinema and as such, one of the most remembered and cult films of all times. The entire story is essentially narrated from a future Charlie Sheen retelling as well as you see him directly living it as he talks about himself and others of his recount of the Vietnam War and his personal and his platoon or regiment's experiences. It does a pretty good job of breaking up the action sequences with dramatic or just straight talking scenes. This film is probably a fictitious retelling and generally has to do with the inner struggles of the platoon. There's a lot of good actors in this, and some you may haven't heard about because they weren't main or supporting characters like the most minor roles I've ever seen played by Tony Todd and Johnny Depp. If you were to talk to your friends about this film and what they remember, they probably wouldn't remember right away that those and some others were actually in this film. I wasn't fully entertained by this film, but I can appreciate how put together it was. This may be the greatest acting performance and the most important acting role that Charlie Sheen has ever played in his career. I've seen a lot of his works, and acting-wise, it was him who drew me to wanting to watch this film and own it in the first place. His storytelling and acting in this film is superb and the scene with the Vietnamese girl is probably one of his best along with the scene pretty much at the end of the film.

(us) wrote: The list of grindhouse horror classics that were rebooted and worked well is pretty short ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "The Hills Have Eyes" are two that did work), and this one mostly works and had a clever twist on not simply being a remake or reboot. The premiss here is that 65 years after the masked serial killer in Texarkana went on his killing spree, a new copycat killer is now recreating the murders from the 1970s Charles B. Pierce grindhouse film version of the actual murders. This film boasts a producer, director, and writer from the American Horror Story team, so you would expect something clever and this film does deliver. I think I was most excited when this film brought the Pierce film into the story as a major plot point, including creating a creepy fictional son of Pierce played by AHS regular Denis O'Hare, making the film rather meta. Also appearing in the film are Veronica Cartwright, Anthony Anderson, Gary Cole, Edward Herrmann, Ed Lauter, and even Danielle Harris if you look fast. Overall, this was a clever reboot that although it's not as scary or creepy as I'd have hoped, is smart and never boring.

(fr) wrote: W/ Good Morning..and Goodbye! Russ Meyer's is really starting to hit a good stride w/ a formula that would later be optimized in Vixen; that of sex heavy dysfunction. A couple films removed from his black & white trilogy Meyer's ups the nudity giving the viewer a voyeur soap opera that would make day time television blush beet. I had seen a good chunk of his films & really shouldn't have let this one slip by for so long. It's a sexy whip w/ the venom of a cobra. A great cast too w/ regular Stuart Lancaster who's always fucking great, Alaina Capri who just can't get no sexual satisfaction, Haji w/ no dialog who's wild woman hot & even Megan Timothy who I had dismissed as an actress after seeing in the abysmal (but fun) The Mighty Gorga is good . Not talked about much in the Meyer's catalog it's not to be over looked

(mx) wrote: Penny Serenade is a decent film. It is about a couple's big dreams give way to a life full of unexpected sadness and unexpected joy. Irene Dunne and Cary Grant give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. George Stevens did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and romance.
(de) wrote: Review:When I saw the box office takings for this movie, I really thought that there was a typing error but now I have seen it, I'm not surprised. The pace is really slow and nothing major happens in the film for ages. Its about a girl, Franny (Anne Hathaway) who has to travel home from India to be with her brother, who is in a coma after being in a car accident. She then moves in with her distant mum and she studies her brothers diary which explains his life as a busker. She then tracks his footsteps and goes to the clubs and bars that he has visited and she starts getting into the music that he listens to. Whilst going through his things, she finds a ticket to a concert of his favourite artist, James Forester (Johnny Flynn) so she goes to the concert to feel closer to her brother. She then gives Forester one of his demos, which he is quite impressed with and he goes to the hospital to meet up with her to pay his respects. From there, a relationship begins between the hot superstar Forester and the the grieving Franny who is hoping that her brother will wake up out of his coma. As Forester is leaving to play in different gigs around the world, they enjoy there brief time together before he hits the road again. I was hoping for a bit more from the movie but I personally found it quite boring and the performances weren't that great. Don't get me wrong, Hathaway showed great emotion throughout the movie, especially towards her brother who was in a coma through most of the movie but the whole project seemed cold and there just wasn't enough material to make it interesting. Johnny Flynn's character seemed distant through most of the movie and there wasn't much depth to his character. Anyway, I personally found the movie quite dull and depressing so it has to get the thumbs down from me. Disappointing!Round-Up:This is the first major movie release for the South African born Johnny Flynn, 32, so I can only comment on his performance in this movie, which wasn't that great. He seemed a bit dead behind the eyes most of the time and he kept on looking at people like they were speaking another language. He was quite an impressive guitar player/singer, especially when he mixed it up with the violin but there wasn't enough emotion from him as an actor. Anne Hathaway, 32, has the Intern with Robert DeNiro coming out later this year so I'm sure that she will put the disappointing box office takings for this movie behind her. In total, her movies have grossed over $2Billion, which include the Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, Les Miserables, Alice in Wonderland, Brokeback Mountain and her famous role as Andy Sachs in the Devil Wears Prada so this mediocre movie can just go down as a bad day at the office. This is the first major release for director Kate Barker-Froyland so she's pretty new to the game. She done well when it came to the emotion aspect to the movie but for entertainment, it really failed. The corny love story took way too long to get going, even though it was predictable from the start and the ending was sketchy and badly put together. Anyway, the money that the film lost explains that it really isn't that great so I'm not the only one that found it pretty boring.Budget: $6millionWorldwide Gross: $32,000 (Terrible)I recommend this movie to people who are into their emotional drama/music about a girl who travels home to be with her brother whose in a coma after a fatal car accident. 2/10
