Milos L (de) wrote: Very original film. Despite very poor acting, story is very powerful. German language and their attitude are just like chocolate topping over the ice cream for the topic of this one.
Well A (ag) wrote: Personagens que se pretendem engraados, mas acabam sendo apenas irritantes, piadas sem graa e animao mal-acabada soterram um bom elenco em dublagem inspirada.
Gemma M (de) wrote: Despite not being as fresh as the original, the next part of the non-stereotypical fairy tale romance sees Shrek and Fiona embark on married life and meeting her parents! Managing to not only uphold the comedy from the last film, the film also introduces new and hilarious characters which already fit into the beautiful world Dreamworks has created.
Ben L (nl) wrote: I feel like there's something going on which caused most of the world to not "get" this movie, or maybe they just didn't even see it and rated it badly on what they expected. Josie and the Pussycats is a downright hilarious film that is so shockingly meta and self-referential that you almost need to watch it twice just to catch everything that is going on. The writers and directors are totally aware of what they are doing as they poke fun at every aspect of the movie they are making. The theme of the movie centers around the way that teens can become thoughtless followers and how the media manipulates that tendency to sell more. Yet, at the same time that it's telling us that story, it's throwing more and more product placement in our faces literally showing us how it's done in the real world. Apparently this genius stroke came from the director who wasn't even paid for most of this product placement and just used it to accentuate his point. Perhaps my favorite single moment in the film is when a character breaks the fourth wall and actually references the existence of these stories coming from comic books. Another great aspect of this film is how the costume designer and set decorator told the story of changing trends as the film progressed. We could see the colors in the background transition from one shade to the next as the story required.The cast is brilliant, and all have well-defined character types. The most amazing performances, though, come from the amazing Alan Cumming and Parker Posey. Both of them perfectly tap into the messed up minds of their characters, and embrace the over-the-top evil of their plan. Perhaps the best casting decision is positioning Tara Reid as the brainless blonde drummer. She might not have much acting skill normally, but she can perfectly portray this kind of flighty ignorance. I know all of this praise might come as a shock because your natural tendency when you see the title, know what it's based on, and think of other films in the genre, is to think this is total garbage. I was one of those people, and ordinarily I would have ZERO interest in seeing this movie. However the DVD was given to me by a reliable source who said "it's better than you think it will be," and he was totally right. Josie and the Pussycats is a silly, funny, and perfectly self-aware movie. I'm sure not everyone will share this opinion, and even people who "get it" might not like it, but I would recommend that you think twice before writing off this film because I laughed pretty much from start to finish.
David L (ag) wrote: Ok, as if it wasn't weird enough before, well now it's getting weirder but also a bit silly. Again picking up vaguely where the first sequel left us, we now watch as a perverted slime-ball nightclub owner purchases the freaky column that houses all the souls of those that have fallen victim to the box. Of course it's only a matter of time before those trapped inside are freed having feasted on more human flesh. Having previously criticised the series for not devoting enough screen time to Pinhead and his cenobites, this instalment is focused entirely on him, in his human state, and his tortured form. Alas, his mates aren't with him this time though. In my opinion, it does kind of lose its way a bit more in this one given that the new breed of cenobites are allowed to roam free in the nightclub, streets and churches destroying anything in their path. It's lost that focus upon its central characters, as well as that S&M feel to it when everything was set within the dungeon like torture room, and it's become more of a trashy zombie flick. When you have baddies called CD head who fire compact discs to kill people, you know the concept is struggling for ideas. The previous lead has deserted the cast in this one so we have a new journalist as the heroine, but although there are still some connections to the originals, all ties are now pretty much severed (as well as a few more limbs). What I hadn't realised, until just now, is that there are in fact several more sequels, none of which I suspect will surpass Hellraiser 1 or 2. I'm guessing they're just another excuse for random gore effects and soft porn as opposed to the unique horror story classics that the early chapters have become.

Michael W (fr) wrote: Competently made sci-fi outing held back by confusing plot and an overload of machine gun fire. Gruner does manage some character development and a memorable eyeball procedure may have set the bar for the series.
Jim T (it) wrote: Believe the hype. This is top-quality blockbuster film making with a brain.
Paul M (kr) wrote: it was enjoyable. I feel like this should appeal to a more Broadway admiring audience. I watch the film and I see nothing ground break or remarkable about it. it just come off to me as an everyday average musical. and the fact that I'm not a Streisand fan shows that I may not have enjoyed it from the start.
Steve M (gb) wrote: Fellow Metallica fans will not be disappointed, even if the so-called storyline makes no sense whatsoever.
Josh W (gb) wrote: Affecting. I hated myself for how much I identified with the main character. I felt my own secret despairs welling up inside me. Not a very fun time at the movies, but maybe an important one for pathetic saps like myself. The concept is interesting. The animation is captivating. There are a couple "gross" parts, but aren't humans kinda gross? In it's moments of peak honesty, I wept the hardest.
