(fr) wrote: "Cone Undone" starts with a phone call in the middle of the night. Relax, it's good news for a change as Isa(Martina De Santis) has just gone into labor. That leaves her sister Anna(Alba Rohrwacher) and brother-in-law Alessio(Giuseppe Battiston) scrambling to find transportation to get her to the hospital with her husband away from home on work. Luckily, they are friends with Bruno(Fabio Troiano), a neighborly cab driver who has done this sort of thing before. All of which gets Anna and Alessio thinking about having a child of their own and she promises to go off the pill. Before then, fate intervenes in the person of Domenico(Pierfrancesco Favino), a waiter at a company retirement party who Anna asks out for a cup of coffee despite their both being married. That's not what they are only interested in, as finding a convenient spot to get it on proves harder than it initially sounds. Finally, they settle on a hotel that charges by the hour. "Come Undone" is a knowing and well-acted look at the emotional pitfalls of an extramarital affair. The one thing I was initially struggling with was Anna's motivation. It definitely has nothing to do with Alessio's rotund body since they certainly have a loving marriage. Rather, I think it comes down to one last blowout before her body betrays her and full responsibility kicks in, especially since she got so freaked out by her sister giving birth. After the first successful encounter, the story shifts from Anna to Domenico and we get a feel for the pressure that he is under on a daily basis. In fact, the characters are all drowning in responsbility with the price of everything counted since they have to keep track in order not to go under. However, time can be even more precious than money.

(jp) wrote: This is considered one of the best movies ever, but after watching this I was disappointed. I was so much looking forward to seeing it but it wasn't worth it. The acting especially from James Stewart is good and he is trying but overall this is just an above average movie. The camera work is good. During the first 30 minutes or so the movie just drags, and the pacing is so slow. It shows what we already know. Scottie has vertigo and is asked to follow his friend's wife who thinks she is a reincarnation or something. It is almost like nothing is happening and Scottie is just doing his job. It was during this time I asked myself that why was I watching this.The character development is very poor excluding Scottie. His ex girlfriend had no role in this movie. She is just there. Nothing is told as to whh they broke up. We dont need a full background story but a simple explanation whould have done it. Many parts of the movie could have been edited. Then we come near the 3rd act of the movie. 5 minutes into it the suspense is revealed like wtf. It didn't work for me. Again the pacing is somewhat slow until the end. The ending is very abrupt and it is just thrown at us. In some cases it works only if the overall movie is excellent and makes sense. I will be honest I wasn't expecting the ending but it doesn't work for me. Somethings are not even well explained. I can't go into more details because it will give out spoilers. So overall you may or may not like this movie. But if your having a boring day, go for it.

(au) wrote: "That's a lot of dead whores." Salma Hayek stars as Everly in this gritty and ultraviolent action film. A quaint little Christmas story, Everly, a prostitute who's been enslaved for four years, tries to escape from the apartment complex that she's been held captive in and reunite with her estranged mother and child, but first she'll have to fight her way through dozens of henchman and assassins. The action scenes and fight choreography are well-done, and bring a lot of energy to the film. Yet the tone stays rather light by using black comedy to alleviate the violence. However, limiting the scope to a single apartment and a hallway gives a rather cheap, B-movies feel to the film. And aside from Hayek, the performances aren't that good. Everly has its moments, but mostly it's just mindless action and gratuitous violence.
(es) wrote: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is a mindless, non-funny, poorly written sequel to the entertaining first MK movie. It fails on almost every level and will leave you with nothing put disapppointment.
(ca) wrote: Grim,gritty, brutal, raw, and all too credible. White supremacist group led by Crowe (in his star making role) embarks on a downward spiral when they start a gang war with Footscray's Vietnamese community. Amidst this chaos, a love triangle ensues between newcomer Gabe (Jacqueline MacKenzie), Crowe, and his second in command, Davey (Pollock). The reason then this film doesn't score any higher with me is because it's also relentlessly unpleasant - there is no one to root for. Had Davey's character growth been more about moving away from Crowe's idealogy because it's repugnant, rather than because he is in love, the film might have had some appeal. Liked the ironic ending though.
