Well directed and cut by a genius: from the battlefield to the pharmacy counter, sound and visuals fold into each other. The man is seriously injured for life and wants nothing more than go back "to kill people". Mysterious is man.

(it) wrote: An uninvolving musical that I did not care for at all. All style and very very little substance is what describes this "movie". I personally found Across the Universe hard to get through and its musical numbers put a halt in the movie and didn't entertain because they were uninvolving. The movie 97% of the time was just a bunch of music videos and no original music to accompany it. Now I love The Beatles and think they are one of the best bands to ever walk the planet, but filling the whole film with music from The Beatles with actors who can't match the vocal talents of The Beatles themselves was a huge mistake. The cast of the film to me lacked any real star power because these people did not leave any impression and there is not one memorable character or performance throughout the whole movie. The acting was just plain most of the way through and the emotional moments feel forced and unearned. The story has no real hook to it and it is just pushed more and more to the wayside as it goes on in favor of singing and dancing that drags and drags more and more as it goes on. Jim Sturgess and Evan Rachel Wood fail to provide any interesting or compelling relationship on screen and the dialogue was just plain and average all the way through. Forget about the other characters because the rest are there most of the time to sing another Beatles song or to provide to the screen an unnecessary character that didn't even need to be in the movie. Musicals are great to me when they are done right and this film showcases everything I don't like about musicals. The best musicals are the ones that can offer brilliant original music, compelling characters, and an interesting story. Like The Wizard of Oz, Singin in the Rain, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, and La La Land all brilliant musicals not just because of the musical numbers but because they have elements to be emotionally invested in and a gripping hook that Across the Universe sadly lacks. Director Julie Taymor fails to do anything challenging here and it feels more safe and held back in the way the story is told. The whole middle portion I swear to god just lagged and I was sitting down wondering if all the filmmakers cared about was just showing flashy musical numbers because it sure seemed like it. Forget about story, just be entertained by these uninspired music videos. I hate to be this harsh over this movie but it is just how I feel about it. I went in only knowing I was going to hear Beatles music and when the movie ended, that was all I heard and nothing else. A forgettable story, unmemorable characters, and unnecessary subplots make Across the Universe a chore to sit through. Great cinematography from Bruno Delbonnel and worthy production values are the only good things to take away here. I suppose people can just enjoy the movie for the musical sequences alone, but when I watch a movie, I want more under the surface than just flashy stylish scenes.

(ru) wrote: I love both the original novel and Dougray Scott (one of the most underutilized actors working today), so this dull stinker was doubly disappointing.
(kr) wrote: "Under the Red Hood" shows that DC puts its best into everything, even straight-to-DVD movies. Even without the voices of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, this kept me on the edge of my seat and was fun from beginning to end. The one negative I have is that I wish it was longer. Other than that though, Under the Red Hood is a solid entry to the Batman series.
(mx) wrote: I enjoyed the first two films, cheesy and script lacking but fun to watch. So you'd think this film would be like the last two, well it isn't. It's takes the fun out of the film and replaces it with gloom and stupidity. As much as I like the cast, especially Ryan Reynolds, they weren't interesting to watch or look at. Especially the villain Dracula, he's bad in this film. In short don't waste your time with this film.

(de) wrote: Jean Harlow stars with Spencer Tracy in this tale of a tough cannery girl and the stubborn, egotistical fisherman she loves. Featuring an early (an annoying) performance by Mickey Rooney, worth seeing for the sparks that fly off the two leads and they fight and love and face tough times.
(kr) wrote: I remember watching the trailer for The Zero Theorem, I don't really know about what it's about, and after watching the film, I was like, "What did I just watch?" Christoph Waltz is really good, and so are the other actors. I was notably interested in this, but it was because of the visuals which were the best part of the film. The plot wasn't really that inspiring, and the script needed a bit more work. The chemistry between Qohen and Bainsley is nice, but wasn't really interesting enough for me to care. There were some parts that were interesting, and the characters are good. There are some funny moments, but I wanted it to be funnier. With the ending making no sense, really got my sister thinking that The Last Theorem is stupid, which she's not wrong, and the film was just mediocre they really should've been better.
