Takumi Harada moves to Okayama Prefecture with his family during spring break before his entry to Junior High School. On the baseball field, Takumi has enormous confidence in his ability as pitcher, but socially he is a loner and appears unapproachable to others. Takumi meets a new classmate Goh Nagakura. Goh is captivated by Takumi's pitching and is eager to pair up with him as his catcher. The two join the Nitta East Junior High School baseball team, only to discover that baseball there is under the "complete control" of a dictator-like coach. Unwilling to compromise his beliefs, Takumi defies and clashes with the coach. Takumi and Goh seem to beg doing very well together, until the disparity of their skills start to come between them...

Dann M (ag) wrote: A formulaic and uninspired sequel, Mean Girls 2 is as vapid and shallow as the girls it tries to mock. After transferring to a new school, Jo Mitchell finds herself caught up in an ongoing rivalry between two rich girls when she refuses to bend to the demands of the leader of the Plastics; an elite high school clique. Meaghan Jette Martin, Maiara Walsh, and Claire Holt lead the cast and give fairly decent performances, but the rest of the cast is garbage. And the writing is also rather poor, relying on bad cliches and cheesy dialog. Mean Girls 2 isn't a terrible film, but it's not trying to be a good film either...and the laziness shows.

Steve W (it) wrote: One of Farhadi's underrated works, Fireworks Wednesday explores the themes of marriage. A betrothed and innocent woman named Rouhi is supposed to clean up a house, but is paid in advance and kicked out when she witnesses a couple fighting over infidelity rumours. What follows is the most uncomfortable situation of all time, being stuck in the middle of a feuding couple. Farhadi takes no prisoners, and slowly drives the narrative to the heart after building it up the whole way. He mechanically lets things flow and happen, and it all feels very fluid and smooth. I definitely liked the parallels between Rouhi and her fiance compared the fighting couple, and if you enjoyed The Past (2013) or A Separation (2011), then this one is for you.
Brianna W (br) wrote: I have mixed emotions about the ending. It seemed a bit tacked on, maybe because the writer was running out of ways that the movie could end, while still being logical at the same time. I don't know if people come to this website before watching a movie, but I don't want to spoil it if anyone IS planning on watching it. All I'm going to say is that it is kind of disappointing, but I do think it was sneaky and a way of making it a big surprise to everyone. My overall point of this post is that in my opinion, the ending should have been explained a little bit better because so much is happening so fast, it's very hard to grasp all at one time.

Oskar B (gb) wrote: Bale delivers one of his best performances in this survivor tale that is both realistic and heartbreaking. Herzog directs with such sensitivity that when something happened it seemed totally right. Grim but true tale and has really high tension in some scenerios. Its build up of charcters is hard to match.
Loyal D (ru) wrote: A very funny film that has some hilarious moments. It's an odd movie, but its about an odd group of people, so that makes sense. It was a pretty basic story that really didn't have an epic ending or anything worth remembering besides a few laugh out loud scenes. It was well worth watching though.
Matthew S (us) wrote: Jee-woon Kim's brilliant film would seem to have been somehow forgotten over the years. It arrived during Asia's cinematic re-birth of the late 1990's / early 2000's. This movie is a horror film, but it operates more like a carefully calibrated and disoriented psychological study. It is a masterful film that manages to raise itself above the conventional horror film.

Jason R (au) wrote: A gritty, and brutally honest look at a Detroit automobile factory and their union.The cast in this film is remarkable, its three leads Harvey Keitel, Yaphet Kotto, and Richard Pryor really hit it on all cylinders as down on their luck line workers and friends who devise a plan to get back at their Union by robbing their vault. What unfolds is a story of corruption, betrayal, and murder and it is done in such a way that makes for one hell of a good movie.

Chris B (gb) wrote: "Sanshiro Sugata" is the first film from the legendary Akira Kurosawa who went on to make some of the finest films the world has ever witnessed. While this is not one of the top-tier Kurosawa films, it is saying something when a Director's lower films are better than a majority of other films out. The story is simple, a man who pursues a path in Judo grows as a person while doing so and also discovers humanity as well. The film portrays Sugata's progression as a martial artist as well as a man and finds purpose in doing so. The film while simple is still filled with great fight sequences, occasional comedy and some striking cinematography and shows the beginnings of the legendary Kurosawa and foreshadows what he would go on to achieve.

M K (it) wrote: Ridiculously contrived and borderline-creepy romance that feels like an extended Technicolor sweeps week plotline from "General Hospital", with a sudsy, overbearing score peppered with purple renditions of Chopin, Beethoven, etc. Just because Douglas Sirk directed it doesn't mean it's great by any means.
