Peter F (de) wrote: HBO AIDS-drama is an unnerving and often powerful look at the early years of the pandemic, carried by some truly irresistible performances. Adapting his own semi-autobiographical play, Larry Kramer takes viewers through the ugliness that surrounded homosexuality, as medical bigotry towards them proved fatal. Directed by Ryan Murphy (of Glee and American Horror Story fame), the film certainly resembles other recent AIDS-dramas (Dallas Buyers Club) in terms of production values and narrative, but it finds its strongest card through the acting. Mark Ruffalo and co. all deliver fully watchable performances, and communicate as pained and furious characters. Much more than just Emmy-foddder, The Normal Heart is of great importance socially.
Andrew M (mx) wrote: Rise of the Planet of the Apes is shockingly good. The jump in quality from the last entry in the seemingly dormant Planet of the Apes franchise to this film is unbelievably high, making this perhaps one of the strongest franchise reboots ever. Writing duo Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver make the smart decision of creating a story that focuses not on the humans, but on the apes. The humans play a role, of course, but the plot points involving them are certainly second to the apes and the development of their characters. Their development is mostly dialogue-free (the scenes that do contain dialogue are very powerful), which allows for most of their emotions to be delivered via hand gestures and facial expressions. The latter is largely in part due to Weta Digital's stunning visual effects, delivered by motion capture technology that is some of the best ever put to screen. Andy Serkis, the undeniable master of the technology, steals the show as Caesar, whose transformation from heartwarming to rebellious is heartbreaking yet completely understandable. Director Rupert Wyatt delivers the material with style, including beautiful cinematography and fast paced editing that makes the 105 minute runtime a complete breeze. Planet of the Apes films without competent filmmakers behind them may be weak, but Planet of the Apes films like this are strong.
Nicki M (de) wrote: Excellent! Got to admit, my attention started to waver in the last part as I just couldn't figure out what all the stories had to do with each other. The song is pretty cool and I managed to stick it out to the end. Glad I did. Wow, did not see all those tie ins coming right at the end when I thought the movie was actually over. I loved the story of the book being a scam too, yet all that impact. Awesome.
Don S (ca) wrote: Know this: I am not a fan of horses at all. Still, this is a fantastic movie. Diane Lane put her all into this role and John Malkovich does his usual top-notch work which he makes look so easy. The story is engrossing and the strength of will shown by both owner and horse is enormous. Amazingly told and contagiously uplifting.
Adam C (gb) wrote: Not special in the way it is made but it is competent. The real exceptional part of the film is the main character Arthur Killer Kane. His story is both exciting and humbling, because you se his success in the music world and his slow decline. His story of being a rock icon and then falling into becoming a regular joe is really interesting. The film is really essential viewing for any New York Dolls fan or for anyone who calls themselves a music fan. And if your neither its still a compelling story.

Andrew D (ag) wrote: "Three Days Of The Condor" has a plot that is much like a lot of on the run movies such as "The Fugitive." But this film has a much slower pace than that film has. For this reason the film does not have as much suspense as that film does.Robert Redford in the main role does do a good job displaying genuine paranoia throughout the film making believe that he is actually on the run.The script is very good and has many conversations among the characters along with much of the exhibition.But the plot just got very messy and convoluted as the film went on and just became a little bit of a mess.The score does not add any suspense as it mostly has a dated and jazzy tone that sort of took me out of the experience.The film is very well made and is directed very well but just needed a little bit more suspense and have a less jumbled plot.It is still very well-made though.

Lewis E (ru) wrote: Not sure if the problem lies with the source material not being great to begin with or if the movie fails to properly bring it to life. Either way, I just wasn't interested.

greg w (br) wrote: Gerry & Sylvia Anderson break away from their TV kiddie sci-fi roots with this near excellent genre entry. Director Robert Parrish gets solid performances from the cast, the effects are top rate and the mind-bending (albeit, draggy) plot will pull you in right from the start. don't bother comparing it to more modern sci-fi films at all - enjoy this as a post-2001: A Space Odysssey example of a genre maturing a few steps up from the usual.
