(us) wrote: A well directed story, but something was nevertheless missing. Why does current Polish cinema continuously focus on the seriousness of things to the point of exaggeration? Don't expect any humor or a spark of hope in this one...
(mx) wrote: Even though it was low budget movie, it was actually very creepy. And I loooove it!
(de) wrote: This is an excellent documentary about something very important that should never, ever be forgotten- but it's a documentary, and thus is a bit dry sometimes. Besides that, though, this is excellent and should not be missed.
(ca) wrote: An implausible love affair beautifully observed in this drily humorous and wistful film. Delightful acting from the lead character.
(fr) wrote: I found this movie to be way better than most people thought. I didn't think it was stupid or boring, I actually thought it was pretty entertaining. The acting was really good for a horror movie, and the villain was beyond cool. The last few scenes were definitely the best especially the last minute or so. It didn't really creep me out other than the last minute, but other than that, it was a pretty solid movie!
(ru) wrote: An absurd story about a TV series addict and how she found her potential. A cute movie!

(gb) wrote: Double points for Double team. This is the combo of Van Damme and Dennis Rodman. I have to say for its time it must have been good cause if Van Damme and Dennis Rodman were A listers wow what was the world coming too.Personally as a fan of Van Damme i watched this for some light actionit has a lot of Basketball jokes about defense and rebounding scoring and even made fun of Rodman's pathetic free throw scoring.I did not realize back when i was younger this flick had Mickey Rourke playing the bad guy. Even back then he had the bad guy role down pat.If you saw this when you were younger you would have watched it for Van Damme and Rodman if you give it another go watch it for Mickey Rourke's bad guy performance.It has a coliseum looking thing that the final battle goes down and a battle between human and tiger.I would say if the kids want to watch this watch it with them supervised.but honestly if you choose to sit and watch this flick with the kids watch Harry Potter instead.

(ag) wrote: Pocket Money (1972) -- [5.0] -- Paul Newman teams up with Lee Marvin to deliver cattle from Mexico to a shady dealer played by Strother Martin. Newman and Martin are re-teamed here with "Cool Hand Luke" director Stuart Rosenberg, with a script adapted by Terrence Malick (Badlands, The Thin Red Line). Despite the ingredients, "Pocket Money" doesn't amount to much. For a buddy picture, Newman and Marvin don't leave much of an impression. Marvin almost works as the boozing happy-go-lucky sort, but Newman is less convincing as a kind-hearted dim wit. Even Martin is oddly restrained here, at a time when you really just want to see him embrace a role of villainy. Maybe the problem is in the source novel or Malick's adaptation, but "Pocket Money" is slow to rev up and ends up going nowhere.
(ag) wrote: Intriguing thriller finds one criminal (Gian Maria Volonte) escaping from a train, avoiding capture by the police officer, who initially holds him captive during the trip and ends up pursuing him, at the escape and in further days to follow. A second criminal (Alain Delon), recently released from jail and asking a friend (Yves Montand) at gunpoint for a significant loan in order to buy a car, also goes on the run after killing a police officer in a pool hall. Both criminals join forces, and along with the friend, scheme to rob a building in order to get a giant, valuable gem. Mainly compelling thriller works most of the time, although it is flabby in spots and could have been trimmed. It is also slow at times, which does take away from the suspense. However, the performances are good though, and the film at least has an exciting payoff. The heist is also very well calculated.
(kr) wrote: Waiting... has its moments of wit and insight, however they are too few and too far between as it's bogged down by uneven storytelling, excessively indecent characters, and gross-out gags that are less than humorous.
(it) wrote: Hammy acting, a tired plot and effects that wouldn't look out of place on a sci fi channel movie. A few good set pieces and some of the choreography for the fencing is well shot but there are much better examples of the genre out there.
