Spud 2: The Madness Continues
The year is 1991, and Spud Milton's long walk to manhood is still creeping along at an unnervingly slow pace. Approaching the ripe old age of fifteen and still no signs of the much anticipated ball-drop, Spud is coming to terms with the fact that he may well be a freak of nature. With a mother hell-bent on emigrating, a father making a killing out of selling homemade moonshine, and a demented grandmother called Wombat, the new year seems to offer little except extreme embarrassment and more mortifying Milton madness. But Spud is returning to a boarding school where he is no longer the youngest or the smallest. His dormitory mates, known as the Crazy Eight, have an unusual new member and his house has a new clutch of first years (the Normal Seven). If Spud thinks his second year will be a breeze, however, he is seriously mistaken.
The film starring John Cleese, Troye Sivan, Sven Ruygrok is directed by Donovan Marsh. Spud continues to experience the second year of boarding school with many important events for example : he is threatened with expulsion. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(au) wrote: Excellent documentary following the history and evolution of skateboarding, specifically the Bones Brigade team. Filled with exclusive footage and interviews with all the grests. The evolution of tricks and the sport as a whole is demonstrated wonderfully

(it) wrote: This movie could be described as a sci-fi gangster movie with a vampire bu thatt would also understate the case so much. The story goes in largely unexpected directions so often and is thoroughly engrossing. It is a good story, with lots of action and lots of drama, with interesting character development, and with relevant comment on social issues while maintaining a moral ambiguity that avoids cliched answers. The whole film is beautifully photographed throughout. The fight scenes are the usual ridiculously unbelievable but rather beautiful to watch scenes you expect from an Asian action film. The fight scenes also contain some great little bits of humor amidst the overblown action. The two leads are very charismatic and give fine performances. The acting in general is excellent and almost entirely avoids the sort of melodramatic overacting that is so common in Japanese movies. A truly excellent film.

(ru) wrote: Probably as strange as any movie I've seen outside of deliberate art bullshit, and really even stranger for its lack of deliberate pretension to oddity. Christopher Walken develops a totally unique role, creating a rapport with his family that feels all the more natural for its surprising quirks. Walken loves being on screen and exploring this role so much that you can't help but love it too. There are some really wonderful scenes with the aliens (whose artifice is almost certainly intentionally thin and unconvincing), scenes that laugh in your face when you try to figure out if the people who made this movie want you to take it seriously or if you're supposed to be laughing or what. Which is a brilliant thing.
(ca) wrote: A surprisingly watchable quasi-soap opera of a film, filled with lusty scheming women, frequent nudity and very little 'Blood Mania', regardless of the lurid title.I wouldn't recommend this unless you know what you're getting into, but if you're up for some gratuitous nudity and a fairly meandering storyline, but if that sounds like something you might be interested in, give it a shot.

(fr) wrote: "The Darkest Hour" has some interesting ideas that make up for its low budget, but it's crippled with bad dialogue and a lame story. Ben (Max Minghella) and Sean (Emile Hirsch) are traveling to Moscow for work purposes and while at a nightclub they meet two English-speaking ladies (what are the odds?) Natalie (Olivia Thirbly) and Anne (Rachel Taylor). Things are going well when all of a sudden ALIEN ATTACK! An invisible otherworldly attack force is laying siege on our planet and our characters must scramble to survive. Even if they do, will there be anything left of our civilization?Some of the concepts, like invisible invaders that have no discernable weaknesses, having night and the darkness be a safer time to travel than daytime and having foreigners stuck in a country while an alien invasion takes place are all interesting and should make for some interesting plot points. My first problem with the movie is that it gets frustrating to have absolutely nothing to look at it when it comes to the antagonists. You would think that maybe there would be some variety in the creatures that are sent out to destroy mankind, with some initial, invisible invaders and then maybe some visible, not-so-threatning ground troops to add a bit of variety to the movie but it's the same thing all the way through. It's the kind of thing that would work on paper, or in a novel but feels cheap on the screen. It's true that what your mind comes up with is going to be a lot more frightening than anything that could be created in the movie but this doesn't aim to be a frightening horror movie, it's an action adventure film.To make things worse, the dialogue is poorly written and the characters are flat and the plot is badly written. You can easily predict who is going to make it out alive and who is going to be disintegrated by aliens because all of the characters that die are either late additions to the movie, have no character development or perform some kind of desperate, heroic action before getting whipped out. This means that there's a big lack of tension throughout, hampered further by the fact that the movie's internal logic is very flawed. So these aliens are invisible, but you can kind of "see" them because they make any electronics go haywire (light bulbs light up, appliances get activated, that sort of thing). This means that during night time, you can spot them pretty easily if they pass by anything electronic. In an atypical move, darkness is your friend here. Characters spread lightbulbs on the ground to check if the invaders are present or attach them to their own clothing so they can tell when danger is close. That's cool, but sometimes I found it to be inconsistent. I also thought that the way they handled the aliens' "monster vision" didn't really make a lot of sense. It appears to be consistent from scene to scene, depending on whether or not the characters are supposed to get spotted or get away safely. Despite the movie's low budget it does use the money it has well, except when we do finally get a reveal of what the invisible invaders look like. They look incredibly cheap and clearly created by computer effects (Another instance where practical effects would have been the better option).This felt more like a video game than an actual movie. The characters move from checkpoint to checkpoint, avoiding aliens, gathering weapons and meeting with allies while people get introduced and killed off in rotation. The main survivors acquire a special weapon about halfway through the movie and it's a big deal. They can finally start fighting back while everyone else has just been running this whole time. A couple of scenes later however, someone tells the protagonists that the gun can easily be replicated and they have a second one within the hour. Doesn't that sound like an "upgrade unlocked" feature in something you'd find on your Playstation?The characters act without logic, the aliens develop weaknesses whenever the plot is convenient and the explanations we get for the alien invasion and weaponry are complete non-sense. The story feels like a stock space invader plotand there's nothing that really make this stand out. I don't recommend this one. (On Blu-ray, November 4,2012)
(fr) wrote: World Trade Center is an excellent film. It is about two Port Authority police officers become trapped under the rubble of the World Trade Center. Nicholas Cage and Michael Pena give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Oliver Stone did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the drama. World Trade Center is a must see.

(es) wrote: Of all the X Men movies this is one of the weakest. Both in villain and henchmen this movie fails to live up to its predecessors. I never really believed in what the story was telling me and felt like it was way too predictable. Flat and linear and all together easy to decipher, the message of this fell flat and it lacked much excitement of getting to know X Men and their stories.
