Marina A (fr) wrote: Daniel Grou's multi character drama centers mostly on Julie and Etienne, a young couple in love and engaged who also happen to Jehovah's Witness and their struggle with their religious beliefs in the face of some big personal problems. Great performances from the ensemble cast that includes Marilyn Castonguay and Xavier Dolan as the couple, both of whom deliver excellent performances, along with Dolan regular Anne Dorval, but overall, the movie has very little to say that is of interest.
Jairo A (it) wrote: The Lords of Salem was "good" but it's disappointing because it should have been much better. The first 2/3 of the movie was really good and it had a lot of potential. They could have made some of the scenes scary. For example on one scene, an entity is present as someone is approaching but it doesn't scare anyone...it just stands there. That's weird! Then comes the last third of the movie, and boy it got weird and this is where it disappoints. The story was cool, it started really well but it screws up towards the end.

Dave P (fr) wrote: Pretty much Walking Tall but with indians, and the casino hasn't been built yet. Would get at least another half star had they bothered to give the main character a back story. That was particularly annoying when one of the antagonists expresses "I thought you were dead!" shock.

Jackson (Pulp Fiction) As Coach Ken Carter, It Also Co-Starred Rick Gonzalez (War Of The Worlds), Robert Ri'chard (House Of Wax), Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) In His Feature Film Debut And Rob Brown (Don Jon). The Film Followed Coach Carter And The Controversary After He Benches His Team For Breaking Their Academic Contract With Him.I Enjoyed This Film A lot, I Am A Big Fan Of Biography Films And Of Samuel L. Jackson And Because It Was Also Channing Tatum's First Film And What A Film He Chose To Star In First. It Had A Good Storyline And Script. It Had Good Acting And Is One Of The Best Basketball Films And Samuel L. Jackson Performances.

Christopher C (jp) wrote: A very cool film noir. A novel approach to story telling emphasizing the dichotomy between good and evil. It is beautifully made and shot. I'm pretty sure this is mandatory viewing for most film schools and should be mandatory for all movie buffs. Check it out asap.
Brandon W (us) wrote: Jaws 2 is directed by Jeannot Szwarc, and it stars Roy Scheider and Lorraine Gary in a shark film about another shark that terrorizes Amity Island again, and Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) deals with the shark once again. When coming towards the series, I remember this one being the last solid Jaws film that I've watched. So when I got to see it again, it's not as great as I remember it, but I still think it's a good movie in its own. Roy Scheider is still terrific here and I still care about his character in this one also. The shark effect doesn't look as realistic looking as the one in the first one, but it still looks good, and it's a lot better looking than other shark films. Even though I like the character progression of Martin Brody, the other characters however, I did not care about them at all, and when they were trapped by the shark, I wasn't really interested in what's going to happen to them. I'm glad that the movie creates the characters and leave the shark out for suspense reasons, but the characters are bland, and are not nearly as interesting as Steven Spielberg's version. There were some plot points that I thought were repeated from the first one, but it lead to different resolutions of it. The score by John Williams is really catchy still, and the climax of the film is a bit fun to watch as Martin Brody is in the battlefield with the shark. There are some good suspense, and an effective scare here or there, but as is, Jaws 2 will never be as fantastic as Jaws, but hey, at least this is way better than Jaws 3-D and Jaws: The Revenge.

steve b (br) wrote: Watchable but with glaring flaws and plot holes which is annoying as there isn't much plot anyway. I like contemplative, real to life, emotion and character driven films like this and Ferrell is very good here in a serious role which became the in vogue thing for comedians a la Jim Carrey. But a few things bother me (semi-spoiler alert): If his wife had left him to live elsewhere, why lock him out and change the locks? And since he had broken into the back garden via the side gate, and was initially unwilling to sell his stuff and was getting hassled by the cops and neighbours for sleeping out in front, why not move the stuff into the back yard where it was safe and he could sleep without getting in trouble and with more privacy? And what kind of alcoholic drinks PBR which is like the weakest beer you can buy? And I refuse to believe he would leave the knife with his name on it in his boss's car tire, esp after thinking he was in legal trouble already with the woman on the business trip. He would have went back for that knife. And no company would ever give an employee they were firing, who they thought was prone to getting drunk and making poor decisions a KNIFE as a parting gift. Ridiculous. And near the end of the film we see him at the front door of his house and there is a row of small windows going up the side of the door frame alongside the door right next to the lock and doorknob. He could have broken in so easily by smashing just one small panel! A guy who would slash his bosses tires certainly wouldn't have been afraid to break into his own house, considering his now estranged wife was not living there, he couldn't have gotten in any trouble for it.
