(fr) wrote: This was a good surprise. The movie started a bit slow, but picked up with unexpected turns, and cute images. I appreciated the open questions posed, it kind of allows the viewer to make individual assumptions. I greatly enjoyed it!
(kr) wrote: It was pretty good. Had some funny parts in it. The old man keeps talking to his walker and loafers. You wouldnt expect this old guy to be so good at surviving...
(de) wrote: Better than the first Asterix movie, but doesn't beat the second film.
(au) wrote: 'Lost Highway' is an intense psycho-trip with the spirit of 'Twin Peaks' and format of Lynch's next masterpiece, 'Mulholland Drive'. While flawed, this is a dizzying dreamscape within the mind of a murderer. 8/10.
(gb) wrote: The Baio and Ames magic began here as Baio plays a high schooler who accidentally gains telekinetic powers in a science lab accident. Has its good and bad moments. Heather Thomas' fuzzy pink sweater remains the most memorable part.
(fr) wrote: At two hours and eleven minutes, this movie is definitely too long, with far too many strange and somewhat pointless scenes and subplots. However, it's also a lot of fun in a very weird way. Great performances from a great cast. Even the normally wooden Candice Bergin isn't too bad here. Gene Hackman plays an old soldier, relentlessly holding to his specific code of honor. The plotline is more of a plot squiggle, wandering all over the place, with an extremely uneven tone that shifts from lighthearted goofiness to grim violence with little warning. Worth a watch for western fans, but hard to suggest due to its weirdness.
(us) wrote: After the delightful original it was inevitable that the sequel would not match it. That it NEARLY does comes as something of a very welcome surprise. The humour is more obvious rather than dark this time round and Vincent Price looks to be enjoying himself yet again and so he should. It's a terrific role and he is terrific in it.
(br) wrote: The chemistry between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery and an action-packed plot make Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade just as fun and thrilling as Raiders of the Lost Ark.
(gb) wrote: Charlton Heston is one intelligent badass who faces off against the extremely tanned Laurence Olivier ;) Khartoum is an interesting display of military strategies, politics, and history that is quite enjoyable.This is warfare in the grand scale with both sides sporting hundreds to thousands of troops (well I'm sure some extras were used more than once) in a dry and desolate part of the world.If you are into historical warfare movies, Khartoum is a must watch. So good.
(au) wrote: I feel ridiculous having watched this good-for-nothing film. No purpose of the story, no character-buildup, no utilization of resources, although Bush Sr. might have approved of military resource-help for friendly countries to fight drug-cartels. This film's subject is extracted out of the speech by the Bush Sr. which can be seen in the opening of the film, on the said thing the film was probably based to show US involvement. A ridiculous film to end with bombarding of the goon-element who earlier in the film shot down couple of friends of Cage.
