Stephen B (ag) wrote: A bold choice of subject, but it is as gentle and inoffensive as they come and it often cries out for the mildly subversive strain of humour that Almodovar can bring to this sort of material. A trite script and patchy performances don't help, but it still manages to create several moments that are quietly touching.

Graham B (ag) wrote: A small time gangster from the Johannesburg townships falls out with his gang after a robbery went wrong resulting in a man's death. Tsotsi goes off to Jo'burg to do a job on his own. He robs a woman of her car, shooting her and crippling her in the process. What he doesn't realise is that the woman's child is in her car. His first instinct is to abandon the child with the car, but he decides to take the baby home. Completely unable to care for him, he enlists the help of a recently widowed neighbour who also has a young baby.This film is grim and hard hitting. It does tell an interesting tale of Tsotsi's character arc. The hopelessness of the situation he has put himself in is infuriating however. No leave the baby in the car! No don't leave the baby in a bag under your bed whilst you go out. Let Miriam keep the baby! AARGH!Top performances from the cast and it is stunningly shot on location. You can see the difference in the township accommodations and how they reflect the characters who live there. Tsotsi's shack is decrepit and over run with lice, whereas Miriam has made the best of her situation and her house is positively lovely and bijou. At least that is what it said in the estate agents!The film won the 2006 Oscar for best foreign language film and I expect it is thoroughly deserved. Not sure what it is doing on this list though. Apparently it is breaking new ground for South African films, but is that reason enough? Not really. Worthy of a view? Yes.

Not knowing which was which nor caring, I ended up watching Part 5. Return of the Living Dead is a movie I adore and Part 3 is a movie I highly enjoyed so I didn't think it would hurt to see the rest. I was warned by many friends, many times to not even bother and that the recent sequels were horrible. Alas, curiosity took over (gotta shake that habit) and I sat down with this one. I'm going to make an official apology to my friends who tried to warn me, I love you all and will try to pay closer attention from now on. Rave to the Grave was one of the worst movies I've ever seen, I don't even know where to begin. I'll begin with the dialogue. The most childish, unfunny and RIDICULOUS lines I've ever heard came directly from this flick. I don't even want to mention any as I need to get them out of my head pronto. Its attempt at humor was also ridiculously sad and so juvenile I couldn't believe that this was an R rated flick. The pacing was slow as watching paint dry and Ellroy Elkayem must have been underpaid because the directing here seemed like somebody just kept saying 'whatever' to the boring ideas or keeping it one-note the entire way. Point-and-shoot. That's it. Nothing interesting to be found here. It's a good thing Aimee Lynn Chadwick was cute because her performance was lousy. Either she's not very good or she was getting underpaid. Cory C. Hardict was decent with what he had. John Keefe surprisingly manages to keep it together and comes out of this crud looking pretty good. Jenny Mollen looked hot... that's it. Peter Coyote (great name) amused me and I couldn't believe his over-the-top performance here. But it worked in its favor for me (not much of a favor, but it was appreciated). Cain Mihnea Manoliu was annoying, unfunny and excruciating to see/hear after a while. Furthermore you get a rotten soundtrack, obvious dubbing and terrible production values. Anything positive? Again, Peter Coyote would amuse me any time he popped up. I just couldn't get over this guy! He's insane! The gore was pretty impressive when it arose and there was plenty of female nudity here that anyone who digs on that could enjoy. But mark my words: this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen and I love zombie flicks. Poorly done in every sense of the word. I will never see this piece of sh*t again. Stick with Romero's trilogy or the original Return of the Living Dead and save your money and time... The worst.

Thomas P (ru) wrote: Movie is rather slow. But the basis of how Dracula came about was nice. Since the times of Jesus on the cross. My favorite scene was on the roof of the Chuuuch when Dracula was going through the explanation of his existence. I like that. It's okay. Takes place in New Orleans & it's alright.

Liam G (kr) wrote: I have no idea why this isnt praised among the best British films of all time. Honest in its approach to subject matter means there is no pretentiousness to it and the wired scenery and camera work puts you in mind of the stranger Gilliam stuff. It's like "the cook the thief his wife and her lover" but actually entreating. If there's anything that annoyed me about it it's some of the poor acting but that gives it a neo realist feel and hammers the working classes of the character home. And what a sound track! I'm a huge motorhead fan but anyway but the sound does fit as a mob mentality fast paste fuck you sound which was a thousand times better than some boring classical arrangement would. Lemmy played his part well too, so did Shane McGowan, even old Paul McCartney cameos in there. Brilliant visionary important film.
