Sheena R (de) wrote: Perfect movie for this coming fathers day!

Kyle J (it) wrote: I don't really know what to make of this thing. It seemed like they were going for parody. And in that ven, for the first 45 minutes I actually sort of dug it. The way the characters interact with each other is ridiculous, the insults that get hurled around are just stupid enough to be funny. The acting is sub-sub par and some of the deaths were pretty amusing.The second half, things start to fall apart as the wrong plot points get emphasized leading up to a point where the movie literally ends ON the climax. Honestly. No attempt to wrap anything up, or finish the story. It's bizarre.The good points: Chef is in it. Pretty much playing chef too, he's even got the outfit. And the main character running out of every scene screaming "YOUR ASS STINKS!"at the top of his lungs. Obviously watch it to make fun of.

Mikhail B (kr) wrote: Don't quite know how Colin Firth got into such a terribly cheap movie

sitenoise (kr) wrote: A cheap idea for a film full of bad ideas. Director Jin-ho Hur explores love and death, and the birth and death of love, in his films but just because the concepts are highfalutin doesn't mean you can just throw on a violin track and make a meaningful movie. Stoicism in the face of death is good but here it's negated by selfishness. The guy did wrong and the girl's happiness is a failed manipulation.

Nick C (nl) wrote: From the nightmarish mind of Clive Barker, excellent film, type of film a teenager would watch now and find boring or rubbish, but they really don't make them like this anymore, feels good to be 'old' , the music and truly odd creatures add to the spectacle.

James M (ca) wrote: Based on a classic anti-war novel by Kurt Vonnegut, of which I am a huge fan, this movie actually does justice to a book I thought would struggle to make the page-screen transition.The plot might be difficult to follow if you've not read the book, as it's a philosophical insight into timelines not existing in the linear, but all at once in non-sequential random order. Lost? Yes, I was when I first started reading the book.Michael Sacks plays Billy Pilgrim, a WWII veteran who "timejumps" from his settled family life in suburbia, back to the World War II and his time spent interned in Dresden POW camp and into the distant future where he is on the planet Tralfamadore, confined to a zoo-like dome with an adult movie star as his love interest, observed by aliens who only exist in the 4th dimension.The plot sounds twisted and convoluted to those who are unfamiliar with Vonnegut's prose, but the adaptation makes the movie quite easy to follow considering the non-sequential order.Part sci-fi, part war but brilliant in its execution and craft, this is up there with Catch-22 as the all time anti-war movies. Recommended especially to those who've read the book.
