The Holiday torrent reviews
(it) wrote: Visually impressive for a student film. Erratic greenscreen, realistic prosthetics, and fantastic stop motion photography.
(nl) wrote: cute script. nice direction. lovely acting. excellent robot dancing skills. loses one star for lack of chris messina nudity.
(de) wrote: honestly, who doesn't love a movie about their home state, filmed just 7 miles from where you live? even if it WASN'T filmed in the greatest state ever, you have to admit it was quite a precious story.
(gb) wrote: Compelling themes of minority life in the slums of Paris and pressure on Muslim-Arabs against interracial dating are trumped too heavily by the lolita sex fantasy centralized by the screenwriter.
(ru) wrote: May is a cut above most other modern day slasher flicks thanks to a terrifically layered performance from Angela Bettis and concise, tense pacing
(br) wrote: Another great Vincent Gallo movie. This is a messed up film which takes a while to work out what's going on. A splendid cast and a very well made movie which makes for uncomfortable viewing at times.
(nl) wrote: The people I was watching this with did not tell me that this was a vampire movie, so when the movie went a totally different direction mid-way, I was like, huh????
(ag) wrote: With a largely good script, and decent performances from much of the cast the atmosphere is made suitably tense, keeping you gripped throughout. The ending is a little sudden and feels almost thrown away. Nevertheless, it's still a movie worth your time.
(ru) wrote: An all right picture saved only by Holden's shirtlessness.
(ca) wrote: ParaNorman adds to another wholly satisfying stop-motion film to the Laika collection, that even if it's not as good as Coraline, it still marks another original, beautifally animated, and surely funny stop-motion film that is sure to delight any type of audience.
(fr) wrote: It was supposed to by Garbo's vehicle but Crawford absolutely steals the show here, and it's not just because she's so much sexier. Garbo chews the scenery and Joan is absolutely restrained and naturalistic. Apparently she watched her idol do her scenes without her knowledge. Knowing Joan, her reading was no accident. Yes, Garbo is playing a neurotic but she's far too theatrical. Anyway, to the film.This is a surprisingly dark little melodrama with lots going on between the lines, as I suppose was inevitable given that it's set in Berlin in 1932. It's not overt, but the currents are there. John Barrymore is utterly charming as the Baron and his brother Lionel is quite touching, if a little old fashioned as Kringelein. The set design is really quite amazingly lavish and evokes the era beautifully. The story runs along believeably enough, if a little soapily but all in all it's just a lot of fun to watch, if you can set aside the prejudices of your modern eyes and just enjoy yourself.Nothing brilliant here outside of the sets and story-telling, and the pace is a bit uneven. However, creaky though it is, Grand Hotel is worth a stay in.
