(gb) wrote: Rock & metal fans will like it, real Metallica fans will love it.One thing you can say about the band is that they have a sense of fun & understanding about themselves. You have to to make it as big as they have. Everything about this concert film is what they think people think of them, but completely over the top, and above all, entertaining. You either sit back and enjoy what they're doing, or fuck off because they're not slowing down for anyone.
(ca) wrote: 'Middle of Nowhere' is Ava Duvernay's stunning, first major film. Duvernay's has a brilliant knack for directing actors and quiet, intimate scenes. Whether in a bus, a prison visiting room or in the bedroom, this movie breathes and lallows the story to be told patiently. There is a dinner scene in this movie that is quietly intense, well acted and finally powerful. This movie also has a poetic quality to it.

(jp) wrote: Great movie. People are saying it's not very funny and I understand where they are coming from but there is more of a storyline than people think. It's not meant to be just a laugh out loud sort of movie. Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish by how it climbs a tree, it will spend its whole life believing it's stupid.

This film will likely leave those previously unacquainted to Bionicle somewhat in the dust. The events showcased progress a bit too quickly for comfort and may lead to a few questions being raised, but overall, this is an entertaining film (and the voice acting is pretty good, to boot-if you know French, listen to the French track on the DVD for an amazingly sinister Makuta voice!)

(gb) wrote: After Steve Reeves' two successful runs in the Hercules role it wasn't too far before other imitators started poking their heads in wanting a piece of the action. In comes Reg Park, arguably the second most popular actor to play Hercules, making his debut in the beefy role with "Hercules and the Captive Women". Though considered mistakenly by some to be a follow-up to Steve Reeves' films "Hercules" and "Hercules Unchained", it should be mentioned up front that this is NOT a sequel to those films. This is just another film with a different guy that happens to play Hercules... and not a good film at that.Hercules becomes shipwrecked and ends up landing on a beach rescuing a princess from a funny looking, shape shifting monster. This island he lands on happens to be the lost continent of Atlantis and he throws a whole wrench into their system by rescuing the princess and killing the beast as the monster happened to be the son of some Greek God so the Island no longer becomes cloaked by fog. Hercules also discovers a play by Atlantis's evil queen to take over the world with her army of large brow boned blond warriors.The plot to this film is completely disjointed and sloppy making for a laughable introduction for Reg Park in the role of Hercules. The opening is a jarring image of the history of the character that makes no sense and leaves the audience completely confused within the first ten minutes. Then Herc lounges around for a third of the picture, sleeping most of the time before landing on Atlantis where the film picks up a bit with exciting set pieces and some surreal dream like moments but overall it still tends to drag and the climax is full of unnecessary stock footage of a volcano exploding.Reg Parks sure fits the role of Hercules as he is even mightier looking than Steve Reeves but the Hercules character is just written awkwardly by having him being lazy for the first half of the picture. Herc surprisingly seems oblivious to the evil intentions of the people around him and overall seems to more overall muscle mass in his head instead of a brain.The production values are better than most other peplum films but that still doesn't make for a better film as this is amusing for all the wrong reasons and is definitely not a good place to start for people wanting to get into the genre. Reg Park's next Hercules film "Hercules in the Haunted World" is a much more enjoyable and better example of the genre.
(kr) wrote: Von Sternberg is usually pretty good (unlike von Stroheim, who often annoys me, and yet I keep getting the two mixed up) but he's never really wowed me. This time he came close. The basic story is not especially noteworthy... a working-class romance. But it's more evolved than your average Hollywood silent. The characters go beyond the usual archetypes and feel more genuine and relatable. The performances are nicely understated, with only Olga Baclanova getting a wee bit hammy. The film has a naturalistic air to it, a kind of despair tempered by grim resignation and small hopes. Most striking is the photography, it's beautifully shot with some wonderful camera movement. Like most silents, I probably wouldn't bother to watch this one again, but it certainly beats out most of its contemporaries.
