Tibor B (jp) wrote: An odd misfire from Atom Egoyan in this tale of sex, drugs and murder hiding behind the TV-friendly facade of a 50s Ratpack-style comic duo, played by Firth and Bacon. Alison Lohman feels well out of her depth as the young 70s journalist who is hired by Collins to write his biography, and finds her idolisation of the duo eradicated when she uncovers implications of the murder of a young college student in their hotel room, back in their heyday and leads her into a continuation of some sordid events involving the duo in the present. There's an interesting story here somewhere but it seems spoiled by stodgy pacing and an uncertainty of tone which seems to alternate between a sleazy but dull TV movie and a far smarter drama but never combines the two effectively.

Petros T (ag) wrote: Not too surprisingly, the film's futuristic aspects are mostly just awkward and hit their target - presumably laughter - only partially. On the other hand, "Demolition Man" occasionally appears to be a meta, self-sarcastic treat, with references to Jackie Chan and Arnold and the uproariously funny "I'm a seamstress" 'subplot'. Of course, it all comes down to the action, which features enough demolitions to water your eyes. Also on the plus side, Snipes and Leary are visibly having a blast.

Elliott F (mx) wrote: Claude Jutra's Mon Oncle Antoine can be described as a lot of things. Delicate. Atmospheric, perhaps. Warm. But pointless is not one of them. It is easy to see how some viewers with limited attention spans could find this film a bore, but the film has powerful currents at work under the light facade. It tells the story of goings-on in a small town near Quebec on December 24, sometime in the 1940s. Jacques Gagnon stars as Benoit, the orphaned 14-year-old, whose life is changed forever when he comes of age on a trip to retrieve the corpse of a 15-year-old with his undertaker uncle Antoine (Jean Duceppe). Despite the overwhelming amount of death in the film, flashes of life fill the screen more than once. A real treat of a film, one of the very best of the 1970s.

Shayne S (fr) wrote: as a big fan of the title track, i was interested to see what the film was all about. it certainly has a different tone than the others, and elvis' character is anything but a hotshot. it also has a "mr. smith goes to washington" element near the end. if you want to see what elvis' real hair color is, check out this film!

Derek S (gb) wrote: One of the most creative, thought-provoking, and emotionally relatable movies currently in existence. My favourite movie!

Giuliano B (it) wrote: The best film on Dreamworks Animation's behalf. Well animated, well composed and well paced. It is truly spectacular.

Jacob B (nl) wrote: Jack Black fits the role of Po as if it had been tailored to his feet. Which, combined with the positive message sent through the story, as well as uber fun action, makes this easily one of the best Dreamworks animations.A
