Seduced and Abandoned torrent reviews
(gb) wrote: "Why Stop Now" 10 Scale Rating: 5.0 (Average) ...The Good: A mostly entertaining cast who turned in good performances. I liked what they were trying to do here, even if the execution fell short. The scenes that I found to be amusing were very very amusing. The Bad: For starters, Jesse Eisenberg is beginning to be the same guy in every movie and is starting to feel like a one dimensional actor. The film itself seemed to struggle with it's identity and flip flopped from comedy to drama and back again repeatedly. It is fine for a screwball comedy to attempt to have some heart, but the delivery for this film was flawed and it felt forced. Scenes and lines felt completely random and confusing as they tried ever so hard to make this more than it was.
(de) wrote: A terrible sequel from a pretty badass franchise, ruins it all by how poorly made it is......
(mx) wrote: It wasn't too bad, because I actally finished watching from beginning to end. I did somehow had a somewhat accurate prediction of what was going on in the movie. Though the ending pretty much threw me off.
(es) wrote: a small, clich story but the performances of the cast makes this movie watchable
(ca) wrote: An average fare from Miike based on some game. Its one of his more mainstream movies but still have some of his signature craziness to it to make it interesting. He makes good use of typical game elements and the scenes play out as scenes from a game but that is also where its weaknesses show. The story is sketchy and the characters are flat and one dimensional. Miike works very fast on his movies and this one seems to have been made when he was half asleep too.
(nl) wrote: A brilliant, poignant and beautiful film. The performances are brilliant, particularly the young boy who plays young Jacob who carries the performance through three languages and a lot of silence.
(gb) wrote: Another sublime work from Korean writer and director Ki-duk Kim. In less-is-more style he tells a beautiful, dreamy, dramatic, nearly poetic story with hardly any dialog. Interesting movie, highly recommended."It's hard to tell that the world we live in is either a reality or a dream."
(fr) wrote: Low-budget zombie flick with a redneck flair. Take a slew of unknown actors, throw them in a small town in Alabama where the Sheriff and Deputy are gone for the weekend leaving the civilian dispatcher in charge, add loads of zombies (with fair effects), and mix. Supposedly, horror and humor are the result. While neither of these happened for me, I almost enjoyed it enough to recommend but not quite.

(mx) wrote: Loved it....although I admit to being a little confused through some of it. Just wait until Chinese directors turn their cameras on non period pieces.
(fr) wrote: A very unique film and a valuable addition to the canon of great films on slavery.
(es) wrote: Low budget and choppy in story. Bryan Fisher really couldn't pull this role off. I've never see so many sets take place in a warehouse. It gets points for attempting to run parallel at times with the classic J&H with a modern twist. Better actors and bigger budget would of probably made this a whole lot better.
(br) wrote: The racial tension, police brutality and ethnic slurs are strong with this one. Of course 1972 was a much different time(although maybe in recent years, not too much different unfortunately). Still, this is a classic and well worth watching.
(de) wrote: There are plenty of things not to like about this movie, but the single biggest offender for me was the grating music that plays throughout and drowns out the dialogue. I can't watch something that makes my brain hurt, and this poor excuse for entertainment certainly did that. Wasn't really the fault of any of the actors, either... whoever was responsible for this soundtrack ought to be shot.
