(au) wrote: This movie was given away free to 2.6 million readers of the Daily Mail. I feel really bad that I paid a buck from redbox to rent this turkey. It's mediocre and now that it's over I never have to watch it again.
(kr) wrote: Cute ending, but a lot was left untouched.
(ag) wrote: A high-quality film from the good folks at Troma. a dark, unsettling, and amazing urban vampire film, more sexy than "Twilight" or crap like that. The special effects were outstanding, making this the most "must-see" film of Troma capacity.
(es) wrote: The daddy of Stop Motion animation films.
(fr) wrote: One of my favorite cartoon movies. Even though it is old and only ninety minutes. I would love to watch this movie again.
(ca) wrote: Superior cop drama with Roy Scheider. Has a chase scene that rivals Bullet!
(au) wrote: Not only Ken Russell's searing masterpiece but one of the most powerful and disturbing British films ever made.
(gb) wrote: A young Gene Hackman and an even younger Robert Redford in a movie about the US skiing team. Might not sound that exciting, but the great cinematography (with some great footage of the Alps) and acting performances are really worth tracking this somewhat undiscovered gem and potential cult classic down. Also features one of the coolest intro sequences I've seen in a long time.
