(gb) wrote: Top cast, superb director and 5 star reviews abounded in 2012. But personally i felt a little disappointed. It tries to adopt a similar approach and tone, but this is no Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.The 2008 election backdrop seems to indicate the bankers have f**ked it all up, and we've all got to fight for ourselves. This is an insight into sleazy men, the boredom; their vices and typically their incompetence. This isn't the mindset of psychopaths, more a dread of the pack turning. It's well-acted, but neither epic or indie. Just a bit MEH.

(ca) wrote: A haunting & mesmerizing film of a Country Priest who struggles deeply with his faith & identity. The film opens with his sermon which clearly demonstrates his pain & struggle.The film then delves into his past life & why he is the broken/fragmented minister he is today. Shot in the harshness of a Swedish Winter which truly looks blisteringly cold.Upon the completion of his film Director Ingmar Bergman asked his wife her thoughts & she replied, Yes Ingmar it's a masterpiece but a dreary masterpiece..don't think there is a better way to sum up this deep & thought provoking film.
(es) wrote: Destination Tokyo reveals itself in three distinct ways: (1) it proved submarine films were marketable enterprises and the claustrophobic conditions aboard a sub did not necessarily translate to the audience (a big concern at the time); (2) Destination Tokyo stars Cary Grant, a bankable star and great asset to a risky film, but as audiences likely accepted Grant more openly in 1943 audiences of later generations may find him hard to buy as the steadfast, down-to-earth sub captain sweating it out with the grunts. Grant built a career off being a suave, sophisticated, urbane rake who could act circles around most actors and give directors and producers all kinds of A-list ego. After Destination Tokyo, Grant could almost name his price. Also, the film stars John Garfield in an early role and he plays second string to Grant well as smart mouth crewman who is as patriotic as his is mouthy. In addition, Alan Hale, Sr. - one of the all time great character actors - is a familiar figure as the cook. By 1943, audiences knew Hale well from his frequent appearances in film throughout the 1920s, 1930s,and early 1940s; (3) finally, Destination Tokyo is a World War II film made during World War II, which gives it an critical emotion response to audiences at the time. Many sons, brothers, husbands, and fathers most likely fought or served during the war and this fact is impossible to overlook. The wartime production of Destination Tokyo served the political front as well with many instances of stirring speeches, bravery, and American determination on full showcase. The U.S. Government and War Department blessed this film and its message of patriotism (or propaganda depending on your viewpoint). In the end, Destination Tokyo is a rousing and satisfying war film done during the height of fighting in the Pacific.

You may already know the basic premise since it was remade as "Heaven Can Wait" with Warren Beatty in 1978 and more recently as "Down to Earth" (2001) with Chris Rock. Joe Pendleton (Montgomery) is a saxophone-playing boxer who is plucked from an airplane disaster by a heavenly messenger (Edward Everett Horton). In his haste, the messenger neglects to save Pendleton's body from being destroyed in the crash so a new 'vessel' must be found for the former athlete's spirit. Mr. Jordan (Rains), who is in charge of newly arrived souls in Heaven, solves the dilemma by placing Pendleton inside the body of just-murdered millionaire Bruce Farnsworth and revives him, completely baffling Farnsworth's evil wife (Rita Johnson) and her lover (John Emery). Complicating matters even further are Farnsworth's romance with a woman (Keyes) handling a financial crisis for her father and his preparation for a championship boxing match under Pendleton's former trainer (James Gleason). In spite of its outlandish premise, "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" successfully suspends one's disbelief through its expert performances, witty dialogue, and energetic direction by Alexander Hall.
(it) wrote: With Atom Egoyan, you can almost always expect a challenging film accompanied by realistic characters and dialogue, some heavy and complex themes, and no easy answers or payoff. "Adoration" is no exception. This is a multifaceted character study with a (slightly convoluted) web of a plot that goes in unpredictable directions along with it's unpredictable characters. It is definitely a good film, but it's intentionally abstract narrative was frustrating at times and it lacked the memorable characters, conversations, and overall cohesion of some of Egoyan's other (superior) films. Still, a good film that built itself up to a strong finish.

(kr) wrote: Attempt by Woody to recapture the breezy newspaper comedies of the 40's. The film is okay as an homage but there is a fatal casting error at the heart of it that damages the picture. That would be Scarlett Johansson in the lead, trying to fill the kind of part that Rosalind Russell, Jean Arthur and Carole Lombard pulled off effortlessly in their prime she is overly earnest and not adept at the sort of confident yet tentative mix of emotions the role requires. In short she's trying too hard in a part that the young Diane Keaton would have been perfect in. Woody does rework his standard nebbishy role to good effect though.
