It felt difficult to follow at times, leaving me in a sort of confusing but it comes together in the end, with high quality actors and yes they delivered the good in this film. I don't understand why are people saying this was boring. So for this being one of the best movies that I have seen and Tom Cruise being just a badass of an actor in it, I give " Vanilla Sky " a perfect B.

(us) wrote: Assassins is a action flick directed by Richard Donner and written by the Wachowski Brothers. Despite the names attached, the movie really has very little to hang its hat on. The screenplay is more confusing that interesting, and it is difficult to care about any of the characters. Despite some decent action scenes, the film in between is quite droll. Assassins could have been great, but instead was a waste of the assembled talent.

(nl) wrote: La Noire de... (Ousmane Sembene, 1966)La Noire de..., released in English-speaking countries as Black Girl, was the first feature released by Senegalese director Ousmane Sembene, and is considered to be the first feature released by a black director from sub-Saharan Africa. (Whether it's a feature or a short is debatable; IMDB lists the running time at sixty-five minutes, but the print I saw was fifty-seven.) As such, it has come under intense scrutiny in the almost half-decade since its release. It is also, I doubt coincidentally, often mentioned as one of the best movies ever made (I don't have access to my collection of thousand-best lists at present, though I can tell you with a quick Internet search it appears on Rosenbaum's 1000 Essential Films list and Piero Scaruffi's 1000 Best Films of All Time). From what I've seen, it may be the most contentious film to appear on such a list. I have an hypothesis on that, which I'll get into later.Plot: Diouana (Mbissine Thrse Diop, in her only film role) is a young Senegalese woman hired by a French family (known in the film only as Madame, played by Anne-Mariek Jelinek in her only film appearance, and Monsieur, the first role for Emita's Robert Fontaine) as a caretaker for their children. They are satisfied enough with her performance that they invite her to continue in that capacity in France. She goes with them, and pretty much as soon as they step off the plane, attitudes change: they begin treating her more as a maid than as a nanny, which leads to understandable resentment on Diouanna's part. This leads to an escalating cycle of tensions between Madame and Diouanna.Putting aside the objections of those who somehow didn't get that Diouanna's role changes when she gets to France (which seems an oddly sizable group of commenters on the film), its critics, in the sense of those who loathe it, point out mostly that it's boring as all hell. I wouldn't go that far, but I think it is very much a product of its time and place. It is obviously a look at colonialism, and Sembene has a great deal to say about the subject. I think the problem is that as the film gets older, and the people who are watching it get younger, Sembene's topicalism is likely to work to the film's disadvantage; how many college students in 2012 in any country other than Senegal or France even remember that Senegal was once a French colony? (And I'm not entirely sure about the "and France" part.) The farther a distance we get from the events, the less a good deal of Sembene's specific symbolism is going to mean to the average film student; I think we're already long past the days of the movie having relevance to the average filmgoer. Movies like this can certainly be made universal, and I've little doubt Sembene knew this, which leads me to believe that he treated this film as an intensely personal document, not necessarily personal to himself, but personal to Senegal, to the country's history and culture at the point in time where it had just recently achieved emancipation from its colonial oppressors. As such, almost by definition, the film is not immortal. While I can't say those who mindlessly slag the film are in any way justified in doing so-it's quite obvious most of them weren't paying enough attention to pick up on even the unsubtle changes in the French family's attitude towards Diouanna when they all arrive in France-I do think that the film is becoming more a document of a time and place than it is a huge, sweeping tale of social injustice. Which makes it no less worth watching, but may decrease its "importance", whatever that may mean, as time goes on. ***

After taking stock of their surroundings they settle into a regimen and order, with Ralph as their leader. However, after a while a splinter group emerges, lead by Jack. Jack is hardly a benevolent leader and fascism and barbarism follow... A reasonably interesting adaptation of William Golding's classic novel. I haven't read the book or seen any other adaptations of the novel, though am familiar with the basic plot. So the story is quite original and thought-provoking to me. I did think it would be a more powerful metaphor for society though, so, even without having that background knowledge I sense that this is not a great adaptation of the book.This said, it is quite entertaining and you can see how it mirrors human behaviour.

(jp) wrote: The trailers for Young Adult suggest it's comedic. They're wrong. Young Adult is definitely more dark than funny and unfortunately I don't think a lot of people are going to want to see it for the holidays. It's their loss. I think it's a fascinating character study. Charlize Theron, excellent as ever, plays a depressed alcoholic who tries to steal back her married ex-boyfriend. She's amoral to a fault, but we can't look away from her mistakes. We're so drawn to her. This may be the most likable bitchiest character to ever hit the screen.
