(de) wrote: Alex Holdridge's terrific bittersweet indie romance has more intelligence humour and romantic insight in one scene than countless monotonous feelgood romcoms from the big studios. Set in the rarely seen LA streets and subway, aspiring "screenwriter" slacker Wilson posts an internet ad on NYE for a date and is uncermoniously invited to an interview by a brash blonde called Vivian. Masked by shades and an uber-bitch facade, she decides he's the best of the bunch of depressed sadsacks she interviews as her potential NYE companion, they drift around LA and start to warm to each other. Beneath her frosty aggressive exterior lies a creative vulnerable and quite charming girl. The usual romcom complications ensue from a temporary break-up to a mad dash from a crazy hick ex leading up to an ambiguous, simultaneously heartbreaking and inspiring ending. Very well played by leads McNairy and Simmonds who became a couple I enjoyed spending time with - Holdridge's film is nothing new, owing a particular debt to Richard Linklater, but it's always very welcome to watch a film so in tune with uncertain 20somethings and the complications of romance as this one.

They are 15 years out of college and now they are going on a spring break vacation.The movie is riddled with clichs, and you will know what is going to happen next. Yet somehow this movie is Surprisingly Hilarious! I found myself laughing along Almost the whole time. There are a lot of great actors in this movie and they all embody their different characters perfectly.The movie is short and spends just the right amount of time necessary to give us the background information needed on each of the characters. The movie does not take itself seriously so it works very well for a quick, funny comedy.

(es) wrote: Full disclosure: I think this is the first bollywood film I've seen all the way through, so maybe I just don't have the taste for its idiosyncrasies, but this was dreadful. I expected poor production, but I didn't expect the awful awful writing. Whole story arcs are started and resolved in the space of a single scene. Character's seem to completely change their feelings from one sentence to the next with no apparent motivation for this. The patchy acting, the scratchy film, even the painful fight/dance sequences were all charming in their own way. The disjointed story arcs were not.
(au) wrote: The story of Dracula has been told and retold so many times that I don't fault anyone for taking liberties with the original story... though very few, if any, film or TV adaptations have been very faithful to Bram Stoker's novel. That being said, this Masterpiece Theater production has Lord Arthur Holmwood (Dan Stevens) seeking help from a bizarre religious blood cult to find him a cure for the syphilis he contracted from his father at birth. Their solution is to bring the mysterious Count Dracula to England (Marc Warren) so Arthur may use his blood to exact a cure. Things obviously go awry as Dracula has his own plans for his stay in London that include Holmwood's wife Lucy (Sophia Miles) and her friend Mina (Stephanie Leonidas). Despite the liberties taken with the story like the whole cult/syphilis thing and having no Renfield but, a slightly off kilter Van Helsing, this production is actually effective and entertaining. Director Bill Eagles gets a lot of atmosphere out of his shots and lighting and is capable of building tension and gives the scenes that need impact the strength they recquire to work. The acting is a mixed bag to a degree. Stevens' Holmwood is a little over the top at times as Tom Burke's Dr. Seward is a bit bland. Marc Warren gives a very creepy performance as Dracula channeling both Klaus Kinski and Malcom McDowell from Clockwork Orange and Sophia Miles is hot as always especially when she turns seductive and thirsty vampiress. Overall this is a decent and somewhat original adaptation that could have used more then it's scant 90 minutes as some scenes go too quick and some characters, like Van Helsing, needed to be fleshed out with more screen time. But, for Dracula and vampire aficianados, it sure beats the Twilight saga.
