(es) wrote: It used a few too many cheesy devices (the scene where he dresses up in front of Monica, the dramatic music ramming a potential comment of significance down your throat instead of letting you work it out quite easily on your own). But it was enjoyable enough and it was interesting to see how Adrian Pasdar pulled off a role like this when I mostly know him for being Nathan Petrelli. My personal favourite bit was probably the moment 'Dina' revealed herself to be Gerald in the conference room..."Grab 'em by the balls, Miles, and their hearts and minds will follow."
(jp) wrote: The idea of David Lynch and Werner Herzog working together sounds like a cineaste's dream, so the tedious mediocrity of "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" is a grave disappointment.This one comes off like a quickie, mostly shot with available light in sunny San Diego and full of performances which seem notably underrehearsed. No one tries too hard, except the ever-ghoulish Udo Kier. Chloe Sevigny is particularly unconvincing, and looks like she can't wait for a cut so she can have a laugh.The casual treatment becomes doubly irksome, considering the heavy scenario: A disturbed son (Richard Kiel-lookalike Michael Shannon) who murders his controlling mother (Grace Zabriskie, wildly over the top). As Shannon holds up in the family home with two hostages, the police (led by Willem Dafoe) keep watch and interview friends about his history. The killer's background is filled in with disjointed flashbacks, a la "Citizen Kane." The similarities stop there.The triggers for his madness include a doomed rafting trip and an all-consuming role in a local staging of a Greek tragedy, but such details do not adequately explain the killing.The film has none of the eerie atmosphere which one might expect from a David Lynch production, and even the soundtrack is just a sloppy assemblage of found music.Watch for a moment in Peru where Shannon repeats a line after it's interrupted by unplanned thunder.

I'd never even heard of this when I saw it in a store & decided to give it a try since I (at least sometimes) like Bruce Willis and flicks dealing with war, etc. I thought it was average, which is why I'm giving it 5/10. Per usual, I liked the southern feel of the moving, taking place in Kentucky. There's something to be said for a southern, simple way of living. I thought the girl in this (Emily Lloyd) was spunky and great to watch - it's a shame she's not in more. Bruce Willis did a nice job of portraying life after war and the effects it has on a person. I just thought that, overall, this movie drug on a bit & was slightly uneventful. I wanted more emotion from it... the most emotional scene of the movie was when they visited D.C. at the very end. I think this movie had great potential but didn't quite live up to what I was hoping for.

(mx) wrote: Not a bad monster flick set in transpotting land. Held my attention longer than I thought, and came away satisfied. My only issues were that the pacing mid film was incredibly slow. There are HUGE sections that nothing really happens and rather empty of dialogue. It felt sometimes like they had films the actors while they had a moment of awkward silence while they tried to remember their lines. The monster scenes were quite thin, and the finale was a bit lost. Very easy to forget film, worth 1 watch because it has boobs in it.
