(kr) wrote: Honestly, painful. Wish I could wake up in the morning having forgotten I wasted my evening watching this movie, but with a post-it telling me to never, ever, watch it. Dreadful. Just watch 50 first dates instead!
(it) wrote: I question both the mind that conceived this was a good idea, and the person who funded that idea. Hopefully it was the same person. It's like the muppet babies went urban: Completely laughable and absolutely untenable.While I understand this is intended for kids...I would never subject them to such a thing. Sniffing glue would kill less brain cells.
(kr) wrote: Veering from his typical editing style, Inarritu takes an (almost) linear approach to telling this hauntingly visual masterpiece; his most intimate film to date. The story is slow at parts and overall could be cut down, but that said, no other director, beside Terrance Malick, can capture the beauty of detail like Inarritu.
(fr) wrote: :rotten: [b][i]Call me "Malinchista" (yup, I'm mexican) but I can't stand the contemporary mexican cinema for many reasons: first, the stories show the worst of mexican society, brainless people star these movies; second, the screenplays are full of bad words and lots of unpolite dialogues that make me feel mad and ashamed; third, these productions hire awful actors taken from "telenovelas" that make audiences think they are still watching a soap opera... movies are shorter, thank goodness and finally, most of these movies have awful technical values: terrible cinematography, confusing edition, 0 creativity, bad directors. This film sucks, I'm giving it a "1" because Paquita la del Barrio made me laugh the disgusting and vulgar song "Rata de Dos Patas". I'm sorry but I honestly think Mexico has much better things to show about our culture to the entire world and I confirm my statement: Almost nobody knows how to make pictures in Mexico.[/i][/b]

(jp) wrote: Jack Nicholson directs this 1978 western comedy about an outlaw gets some last rights at the noose. Just before he get's hung, the executioner asks if there is anyone in the crowd to whom he's about to get married, because if so, he would not be hanged, but allowed to be married to his wife. Of course, being the moral person that she is, Mary Steenburgen steps forward and claims him as her soon to be husband. After getting married, Nicholson thinks he's off the hook and can go back to being an outlaw. Unfortunately for him, Steernburgen is a strict wife and sees to it that her husband works for him on her land. The outlaw quickly finds out that the land is worth a little more than what meets the eye. The movie is a quaint one about marriage and love, good and evil and blur that often occurs between the two. It was humorous at times, really odd at others and overall was an interesting film, if not much like a western.

(ru) wrote: wow, this is a bare bones revenge thriller that totally works. violent raw and gritty with a very vulnerable and human protagonist at its core. this is one of those hidden gems I can't recommend enough.
(ca) wrote: Griffin's script is fresh, but falls just short of being good. It is flawed and far fetched, lacking style and fluidity whilst trying to be too many things instead of only itself. The cinematic elements are, in some parts, well crafted but as a whole, just don't work together. The cinematography proves to be quirky with clever use of representation of the story, however this becomes completely diminished by the use of unnecessary rapid zoom ins. They make me extremely uncomfortable. The soundtrack and sound design are much the same, proving to be far too much and hence, tacky and lacking finesse. Potbrings us from 'Mozart' to 'Meatloaf' as I break into a cold sweat, unsure of exactly how to feel about this film. The contrast between 'art house indie' and 'mainstream Hawaii 5-0' is just too much to me to follow.
