(gb) wrote: Well, it lived up to its name, it was a dino and a shark, and it was also pretty terrible, in a fun campy way, although Eric Balfour was not all bad in the lead.
(it) wrote: I have no idea what is wrong with the critics. Can they just respect a good story for once. I found myself engaged the whole way through, and even though the movie is 2 and a half hours long, I never felt like there was any slow time. Christian Bale? Holy hell he kills it in this movie, and everyone else is pretty good too. Plus, not to mention this movie produced a romance I actually cared about. Nothing felt forced. Cinematography? Absolutely gorgeous, and I mean gorgeous. The camera work is amazing. Now I feel obliged to mention this movie is hard to watch, especially considering it actually happened. The film is brutal, but I can only imagine how brutal it really was back in 1937. This isn't the honorable war. There is no honorable war. It's all terrible. Just think of it this way, how are the deaths of 300,000 chinese innocents and the raping of 20,000 chinese women honorable? It's not. It's awful, and sadly, thinks like this still go on today, and probably always will. In short, an extremely powerful film that demands multiple viewings.

(br) wrote: A wickedly fun Faustus riff, this noir has a nice EC horror vibe up until the necessarily moralistic for its time ending. Milland's clearly enjoying himself as old Nick, and Totter plays her reluctant femme fatale role just as well. Just past the halfway mark, there is a great scene involving him literally pre-scripting a sequence for her that interestingly plays out with her acting on two levels simultaneously and displaying layered reactions.
