Matt B (ru) wrote: It'll be a hard movie for some people to enjoy because the characters are so unlikable, but Noah Baumbach is so incredible at magnifying dysfunctional families. Everything feels so real and honest. Margot at the Wedding is A HELL of a lot darker than The Squid and the Whale and oftentimes ugly, but it works. You don't like these characters but you can't look away from them.

Sean C (kr) wrote: There's not a lot to this gay movie - friend comes out, other friend thinks he might too be gay - but what it lacks in a decent story it makes up for with an abundance of zest and energy usually lacking in gay movies. Warmly recommended though if you fancy something silly to watch.
Daniel K (ag) wrote: With a talented cast and screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, based on an intriguing story, George Clooney's directorial debut had a lot of potential. Sadly somehow it adds up to slightly less than the sum of its parts. It's a decent movie, but not a great one. The tone of the film jerks between, cartoon quirkiness and darker, more serious musings about CIA assassinations. I'm sure that was intentional, but it doesn't quite work, and while the film seems like it has something serious to say, it's never quite clear what that is. That aside, there's plenty to like here. The film looks great and is cleverly directed throughout. The underrated Sam Rockwell is really good as the off-beat sleazy protagonist, and Clooney and Rutger Hauer are good in supporting roles as cloak and dagger types. Drew Barrymore and Julia Roberts do their best with what they are given, but their characters are not very well fleshed out, as is depressingly so often the case with roles for women. They also don't seem to age, despite the film taking place over a couple of decades. It may not be as clever as it wants to be, but it's definitely worth watch if you like Sam Rockwell.

(de) wrote: Pretty good, but a bit too violent and happened a bit too fast, but loved the beginning and was an interesting movie for the Sharks versus the jets, all in all this is a great movie aside from a few misleaded events.
Alex M (it) wrote: Clearly the movie shows how much of a force Martin & Lewis were going to be in Hollywood. As their first film together this starts to show the initial chemistry between the two. I hadn't really seen any of their films before so this was a great introduction. Very funny dialog and general craziness.

Gregory G (au) wrote: Wes Anderson's lyrical, offbeat coming-of-age comedy "Rushmore" is a true original. Max (Jason Schwartzman) is a precocious overachiever who attends a prestigious prep school where he spends more time in extra curricular activities than in his studies. He falls for a first-grade teacher (Olivia Williams) while befriending a local business tycoon (Bill Murray). The humor is droll and eccentric but there is an underlying desperation that is poignant. It has parallels to "The Graduate" but it is less calculated and more heartfelt than that. Bill Murray gives one of his finest performances as a successful businessman suffering a mid-life crisis. Murray is very subtle here showing an adult who is capable of acting like a juvenile while expressing shades of loneliness and regret. Anderson uses a symmetrical mise en scene but it isn't over composed in a manner that would mar his later movies. The Scorsese-like soundtrack with music by Mark Mothersbaugh, consisting of British invasion rock songs, is fresh and inspired. Selected for preservation by the National Film Registry. Written by Anderson and Owen Wilson. With Brian Cox as the school headmaster, Mason Gamble, Seymour Cassel, Connie Nielsen, and Luke Wilson.

George C (es) wrote: I have long been a fan of Isaac Florentine, for many many years now.His films always aim to grab that feel from the 80's classics of Hong Kong cinema, yet are often marred by weak story lines and silly acting.That said, one thing that always stands out is the fight scenes - and none more so than this awesome sequel, Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear!I liked the first Ninja movie and thought Scott Adkins, as always, proved his worth as a martial arts actor. There was just a small hint of 'meh' that surrounded the first causing it to be slightly forgettable.It seems though, with Shadow Of A Tear, that hint of 'meh' has been thrown to the side!Again, acting and story line plays second fiddle to what is possibly some of the best fight scenes ever put to film in a Western production!Beautifully shot, crisp with amazing choreography, I felt that Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear stands punches and kicks above the over-rated hit, The Raid...
