(br) wrote: Very good & very interesting but wouldve been better if it wasnt so short
(jp) wrote: Great acting by Carey and MacGregor in a rather lighthearted and funny telling of a story based on true events. Very entertainsing.
(it) wrote: Bonkers animation from the team behind the gorgeous Kubo and the Two Strings. Plot? Something about a villainous ogre (Ben Kingsley channelling Michael Gambon) kidnapping all the petty-thieving boxtrolls in order to ingratiate himself with a lord and gain access to vast amounts of cheese. To be honest, it's the animation and production design that'll make you whistle: Tim Burton meets Strewelpeter.
(nl) wrote: This is a "drama" movie with some black comedy style. Its not like Jack Blacks other movies but he made a nice acting and Nicole Kidman aswell. Story is fair and quite simple and follow a family and their life days before a wedding..

(br) wrote: Almost a perfectly cheesy, but at the same time awesome action movie. Unlike the Hunger games, they know you want to watch the teens brawl, and the director Kinji Fukasaku knew backstory didn't need to take up half the movie, and he effectually gives all needed info out in short flashbacks.
(jp) wrote: An amazing mystery with dense characters and an immersive story.
(ru) wrote: It's a well-made film by Spielberg. But, it features two not-at-all-bright criminals running from the law, putting lots of lives at risk. And, as expected, there are tons of people celebrating these two along the whole way.So, it's very difficult to care for anyone here. Ben Johnson does his always sturdy work, but they basically have Ben Johnson in the film to play his stock Ben Johnson character.Goldie Hawn's character is a screechy, pretty brainless mess who's willing to risk as many lives as possible to get her child back. And, [SPOILER] inexplicably, we find out at the end that the authorities actually let her do that after a slap-on-the-wrist prison sentence. Texas definitely does things beyond belief when it comes to the law!Vilmos Zsigmond's cinematography is excellent, as is John Williams' score. But, those two elements are by far the highlights of an otherwise routine film.
