The Emerald Forest torrent reviews

Don S (au) wrote: A decent caper movie with the backdrop of a sharpshooter competition. The acting is okay, The story is interesting and presents a reasonable twist that is foreshadowed so is not surprising. The movie is too long by twenty minutes.

Eyal D (de) wrote: This superior French office politics thriller preceded PASSION, the junky Brian DePalma remake. Devoid of the latter's kinky lesbo-S&M, killer-with-a-mask angle, CRIME D'AMOUR instead chooses to focus on motive and alibi, plain and simple. Sagnier leads as a business savvy assistant whose cruel boss, aptly played by the dangerously magnetic Scott Thomas, makes her professional life a living hell. That is until the executive is found murdered and everything points to the servile assistant. Or does it. The point here, and what makes this original far better than the American remake, is that although the killer is made clear to the audience from the onset, CRIME D'AMOUR builds its tension by cleverly unraveling the ways in which the murderer does get away with it.

James L (au) wrote: Blood diamond has a very Fresh and original plot, but I found the film difficult to follow at times; but as an excellent concession, there is plenty of action, suspense and the always beautiful Jennifer Connelly.

Stuart K (mx) wrote: Based upon Clive Barker's 1984 short story The Forbidden from his Books of Blood collection, adapted and directed here by Bernard Rose, (Chicago Joe and the Showgirl (1990), Immortal Beloved (1994) and Mr. Nice (2010)), this is a good film adaptation of the story, with some effective, bloody scares. It's creepy when it wants to be, and it has a dark and mysterious tone too, with a lot of good moments. In Chicago, graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) is researching a paper on urban legends, and she hears one about a local myth about The Candyman (Tony Todd), who is summoned by saying his name 5 times in the mirror, before killing the summoner. Helen with her colleague Bernadette (Kasi Lemmons) research the site of a recent murder, linked to the Candyman myth. After being attacked by a local gang, the real Candyman appears to Helen, he wants her to prove that he really does exist. So, the Candyman puts Helen in a horrific situation, where she's arrested for assault, then put in a psychiatric hospital for murder, which she can't remember. It might look a bit dated now, (it's a wonder no-one has tried to remake it), but it has some effective moments, and Rose keeps the tense mood up. It has a darkly ironic twist in the tale at the end too. Plus, the original story was set in Birmingham, which makes you wonder what a Brummie version of Candyman would have been like.

Michael W (es) wrote: A good movie that gives good fan service and is entertaining to watch. The film is not classic, as some of the dialogue is forced and the end speech delivered by Shatner is among the most painful in Hollywood history. The action is good, the special effects are good when not computer-generated, and we gt to see our favorites like Spock kick the butts of Shakespeare-quoting Klingons. Third best of the original six.

Jordan J (jp) wrote: That was a great comedy. Oh wait was this supposed to be a scary suspenseful movie? Well I couldn't tell because of the terrible plot and effects.

Eric H (gb) wrote: The enjoyment (or non-enjoyment) of Apache Blood is entirely dependent on one's tolerance for no-budget drive-in schlock. After a lousy ending, the final eight or so minutes is a complete waste of time with a long slow-motion sequence recounting all the movie's violent moments, as well as an artist's rendering of Danton as the Apache explored at length by the camera!

Daniel K (it) wrote: Kurosawa??s musical choices are quite interesting. The opening credits here could pass for just about any American noir. I think I may have grown to appreciate Ozu more than Kurosawa. At one point I did not think this was possible, but most of Kurosawa??s non-period work is far inferior to Ozu??s work in my opinion. I??d say Kurosawa did his best work in period pieces. His style of filmmaking works much better when it is grand and larger than life. Intimate examinations of modern people, with exceptions like Ikiru, seem to be secondary works for Kurosawa. They are still excellent of course; they??re just not masterpieces. Part of it is that I love westerns as well; his non-period films are definitely not westerns. It??s interesting how Dreams ties into so many of Kurosawa??s earlier films (fears of nuclear detonation and contamination would be the obvious part here). It is a very unusual film. I wonder if this came out before or after Kiss Me Deadly and if Kurosawa saw it.
