(ru) wrote: It was good to see that Swamp Thing and Constantine were finally mentioned in a DC movie, even if it was animated. They are unrated characters that should of been shown earlier.
(fr) wrote: Entertaining TV movie about Melbourne's underbelly and corruption at the highest levels of Victorian politics. When a serving minister gets murdered you know the plot has gone over the top, but Guy Pearce keeps one entertained till the end. Dusseldorp is a good find and Aaron Pedersen has never been better. Watch out for Shane Jacobsen in a classic role as the fat cop allergic to healthy food.

I didn't love this though because of their obvious...credentials as it wasn't all about being naked - more it was about being who you are - letting yourself be vulnerable inside as well as outwardly. Most of the songs were totally entertaining - quite cheeky really. ; -) Clever and funny and touching and brave & I'll be humming, "Nothing on but the Radio" for days to come. Bravo boyz.
(de) wrote: It's really frustrating watching the situation get worse and worse for Paul Rudd's character throughout the movie, but there are definitely some funny parts of this movie. For example, Kieran is a really great existentialist character that's guaranteed to bring out a chuckle. Most characters are a little unbelievably idiotic though, so there's some more frustration to be had as the movie progresses.

(gb) wrote: Woody Allen is totally typecast as a comedy actor/director. But in Sweet and Lowdown, its a more rounded effort, one part documentary and the rest is a biopic. They set up Emmet Ray as some sort of starving troubled and broken artist, but its Sean Penn who brings him to life. The movie is very interesting, with an emotional performance of Hattie from Samantha Morton. This all together makes for a very interesting and enjoyable biopic, with a great soundtrack.

(br) wrote: Interesting and well acted. Both of the children in particular, were very appealing. Haven't read the Esther Freud book, but just may, after seeing this film.
(kr) wrote: I loved Klaus Maria Brandauer in this movie. He is one of my favourite actors. And Rolf Hoppe was truly chilling as the Nazi general.
(ag) wrote: Hmmm..... So...... The robot is southern...the chick ia hott...Hasselhoff is atrociously bad oh and Plummer's long stares into the distance are hilarious. Okay so in movie terms this is crap but if you like some camp and cheese this one is for you.
(mx) wrote: The most famous example of the 1940's Universal "monster mash", where the filmmakers would put several famous horror monsters in one movie, sometimes resulting in shity movies, but this one I found to be really good and interesting. It's very well made for it's time, but don't expect a big fight between the Monster and The Wolf Man cause that small fight only lasts for about two minutes, the rest of the movie is spent with Lon Chaney trying to find the notes of Dr. Frankenstein. But it's a classic sequel and certainly recommended !!
