(es) wrote: Spooky-type horror movie, if you're looking for action and gore, you're gonna have a bad time. Low budget, but not amateurish. The story's interesting enough to hold your attention. Mysteries that are mysterious enough. You could kill a couple hours with this and not feel like you've wasted your time.
(fr) wrote: Just couldn't engage with it. Pretty images better enjoyed as still photographs. In a film, they feel pretty unmotivated. A lot of it feels thematically arbitrary, and not cohesive enough for me as an arthouse flick. Tries too hard.
(nl) wrote: This was a great suspense thriller with a great twist ending.
(ca) wrote: Muchos aires de telefilm. Sin embargo, cumple con la funcin de no aburrir, pese a una execrable actuacion del protagonista y otra bastante mejor del eterno secundario Lance Henriksen. La musica esta OK, pero el error es que sea continuada, sin ningn silencio. Las locaciones son alucinantes. Buen esfuerzo.
(ru) wrote: Insipidly stupid time waster with Kathleen Turner, Dennis Quaid, Stanley Tucci, etc. Don't let the good cast fool you--the writing and direction (even though it's the usually decent Herbert Ross) are what sucks about this one.

(fr) wrote: Ted Prior is putting out his rubbish for the Binmen, when he is randomly kidnapped by some mercenaries who use human beings as the prey in their training camps. This time, they have taken the wrong man and the hunters become the hunted as a pissed off denim cut off clad Michael Danton kills anything that moves. The scene where he is forced to live off the land, is the finest moment in the history of cinema. A masterpiece.
(us) wrote: MO reveals the mawkish core of Derrida's notion of the gift (beyond all giving, interrupts economy, etc.), and Lvinas's promotion of the ethical and ontological primacy of being held hostage to the other, while also reinvigorating both with a infusion of erotic desire. What drives Dr. Bob? Goodness, sure, but ultimately, what drives him, and what drives him to be good beyond all imagining, is his desire to hump the lady he blinded. You go get her, Dr. Bob. (more seriously, for anyone who wants to get into Sirk, I'd recommend seeing All That Heaven Allows, Written on the Wind (my favorite), or Imitation of Life before this one)(and also more seriously: is it possible that the creepy looming Christian self-help guru played by Otto Kruger was ever seen as anything but a moral Svengali? If Warhol had remade MO, I could see this role being played by Charles Manson)

(gb) wrote: The love story. The "chick flick". The romance. Hollywood's been churning them out for as long as there have been movies. Watching young love blossom from gentle flirting to steamy passion is almost prerequisite for all but the most jaded heart. "Make Way for Tomorrow" looks at the love story through a unique perspective. Everyone's familiar with the well worn adage of young love, but how many of us think about the love a couple still feels for one another fifty years down the road? The Cooper family seems close-knit and doting on their elderly parents, at least until ma and pa announce the bank is foreclosing on their home and they're about to be thrown out. The kids have many excuses why the parents can't come live with them, but after much hemming and hawing they finallly arrive at an amicable solution (for the kids, that is): mother will stay with brother George and father will stay with sister Cora (that is, until further arrangements can be made). Of course, an already stressful situation only gets more strained as time passes, with the childrens' respective spouses feeling put upon to care for these elderly in-laws who are nothing but in the way all the time. It's the mother who seems to cause the most grief to her daughter-in-law and granddaughter, no matter how she bends to accommodate them, there just isn't enough room in the house for someone who isn't really wanted. We see the kids' perspective, it can't be easy having someone feeble who's always 'there', cramping your style and embarrassing you in front of your bridge meeting. They know they should be more considerate of their parents, and they try, but they also have their own lives to lead and the situation they've been put into just isn't fair, darn it. But we also see things from the parents point of view, as their whole world becomes lost to them. Being pulled apart after fifty years of marriage... The last act of the film, when the old couple is reunited, gives a glimpse of just how much they really love and care for one another, and even in spite of circumstances, can enjoy one another's company for perhaps the last time. Even having said all this, this movie isn't some great melodrama of heartbreak. It's a story being told honestly. It's director, Leo McCarey, often considered "Make Way for Tomorrow" to be his best film. It is, at the very least, an arguable opinion.

(kr) wrote: A classic of anime and a visual thrill ride that also has a decent plot. While not everyone has read the novels on which Ds big screen adventures are based, this is a film that truly gave him a status as an icon. One of the best dark fantasy films ever made that while based in spectacle does not lack substance. Badass is the only accurate term to describe it.
(kr) wrote: The film's CGI graphics were mind blowing, character redesign was flawless, however the plot mainly focused on the secondary main character rather then Harlock himself, the English dubbed was alright but could have worked on lisp-syncing and needs to have more recognizable voice actors and/or celebrities, and plot was far different from the original series; instead of focusing on stopping an alien invasion from conquering the universe, it instead (spoiler alert) focused on Harlock wanting to change time in order change Earth back to its former glory but to do such a thing he needed to destroy the universe in order to start a new. This film was good but in truth it needed some work. Hopefully when they decided to reboot the anime and manga series, they'll try to stick to the original 1970's version.
