(jp) wrote: he grow so tired of masturbating, that he decided to try anal fisting. So large was his fist, so intense was the struggle. The shit that he shat was so glorious, that it flew across the emptiness, and so strong was his passion, that most of his shit was set aflame. After one huge push, his stomach was empty

(ca) wrote: Grade - C'District 9' is a truly depressing movie. It's so grim, so bleak, and so full of hopelessness that it's sometimes hard to watch. It supports an original premise, sort of, even if it does borrow from other films. I suppose my main issues with the movie are the characters and the unanswered questions. I didn't care about anyone in the movie, including the main character who we're meant to root for, despite the fact we saw him be a total arsehole about 10 minutes prior and also the fact that up until the last 10 minutes, he's in it for himself and himself only. Add that to unanswered conveniences that the movie just expects us to ignore (how do the aliens know how to speak our language, and vice versa? Why did the aliens come here? The list goes on). I'm torn on it, but feel that despite some good moments, the movie ultimately falls short. That being said, I know the movie gets a lot of love, so go check it out for yourselves and form your own opinion.

But what sticks out are the style and the set ups which looks so cool is when Chow Yun Fat does things especially wearing leather duds and the retribution psyche on his mind. One of my favorite 'out of the ordinary' films with an awesome Chinese beat soundtrack by Alan Tam at the end. 4/4

(au) wrote: I've wanted to see Gothic for almost as far back as I can remember. It's cover art just stuck with me. Look at it. It's a little odd. Of course, I jumped at the chance to see it (Thanks, Fearnet). It isn't a great movie and it's a little on the uneven side but it's kooky, silly, Ken Russell fun.
(us) wrote: Malle trying to do his own spaghetti western. This is one of my least favorites of his. Some kind of wacky comical adventure flick set in the Mexican revolutionary. The jokes fall a little flat and the combo of Bardot and Moreau is not a good match, and I'm not talking yet of George Hamilton (yuk!).

(jp) wrote: Scorsese's masterpiece is about small-time hood gangsters in 1973 "Little Italy" in NYC. They are so small time they have to make weekly payments to a made Mafia man. Harvey Keitel's character is internally torn between his "Devil" status as a gangster, and his secret desire ( expressed through a narration of his thoughts) to be an "Angel". He is like a split personality and thus, takes it upon himself to watch over and save "Johnny Boy" , his distant cousin and protg who is also a hood just like him due to Keitel having vouched for him. Robert De Niro gives an incendiary spectacular performance as Johnny Boy, a nihilistic self destructive gangster who has gambling addiction and seemingly does not care about anything, not even himself though he seems to respect Keitel. Keitel keeps getting threatened because of his devotion to Johnny boy, because Johnny Boy starts to not make his weekly payments and gets more and more hostile to the made Mafia man. Johnny Boy gets wilder and more and more out of control but Keitel never stops trying to "save" him.
(de) wrote: Robert Altman's "Upstairs-Downstairs" comedy of manners mixed with a trifling Agatha Christie murder mystery. Set in an English countryside estate in 1932 for a dinner and shooting party that leads to a murder. The complex intermingling of the aristocracy and the servants, and their relationships to each other, makes up the first two thirds of the movie then the murder mystery takes over. Comparisons to "The Rules of the Game" are inevitable but Altman's film doesn't have the same emotional or thematic sophistication. Renoir's film was a comment on the death of the aristocracy before World War II and the shooting party foreshadowed the events to come. There is no larger social context here. Despite a lengthy running time of over two hours, Altman's fluid direction keeps the movie consistently entertaining. Written by Julian Fellowes, who won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, based on an idea by Altman and Bob Balaban. It's one of the best scripts Altman ever had. Superb production design is by Stephen Altman and Anna Pinnock. Altman assembled a collection of great, mostly British actors for this ensemble. Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith are the standouts. With Eileen Atkins, Bob Balaban, Alan Bates, Charles Dance, Stephen Fry, Michael Gambon, Richard E. Grant, Derek Jacobi, Kelly Macdonald, Jeremy Northam, Clive Owen, Ryan Phillipe, Kristen Scott Thomas, and Emily Watson. The movie inspired the popular television series "Downton Abbey," created by Fellowes.
