(us) wrote: Boy A delivers a simple story yet a very powerful one. It may not rank as a landmark in movies, but it definitely shows Andrew Garfield's performance skills into the world, the mainstream world. No wonder why our new Spider-Man was the right choice. Peter Mullan does a very good job as Garfield's father/father figure as well he delivered with a very strong performance that has to be applauded for. For the last couple of weeks I've watching movies from the UK and let me tell you that they do know how to deliver good film to the worldwide audience. Strong, simple, and powerfully acted, Boy A is without a doubt a must see for moviegoers.

(es) wrote: My Dinner with Andre boasts a title that doubles as a complete synopsis of the film. The movie is about two men, both having worked in the theater, who reconnect over dinner. Over the course of their dinner conversation, they discuss life, art, human existence, philosophy, culture, and a host of other topics. Literally, the movie is in real time - a two hour conversation between friends.To be honest, the film doesn't start off well. The first fifty-five minutes consists of Andre Gregory regaling Wallace Shawn (and the audience) with rather preposterous tales of his experiences trying to find meaning in life. It's tedious, not without merit, but still a slog.It is the last hour of the movie that really vaults this into the annals of the true classics. In this second half of the movie, Wallace Shawn finally becomes more vocal, and the film comes alive. I found myself siding with him over Andre more often than not. After all of Andre's wild stories, Wallace takes a step back and talks about the comforts of a normal life. Sure, we may all be asleep, and those who are asleep can't say no - but waking up to a cup of coffee in the morning is infinitely better than rejecting western civilization. The movie never gets too esoteric with its philosophy. In the end, this is still a simple conversation between friends.In the second half of the movie, a lot of disarmingly real observations are offered. I've never seen a movie be so candid with its audience. But the film can afford to be so strait forward, given its structure. And the entire project is helped along ably by Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn. They provide acting that is as genuine as the everyday life event they are partaking in. It's two friends having a conversation, without natural acting, it is nothing. But both actors give absolutely splendid performances.It is often said that film is a visual medium, but to that I counter with My Dinner with Andre. Take the visuals away, and you still have a top-notch radio play. This is a film that functions outside of almost every convention of narrative filmmaking. And yet, it still provides a resoundingly profound experience that very few conventional films can match."...when we're there at a party, we're all too busy performing. That was one of the reasons that Grotowski gave up the theater. He just felt that people in their lives now were performing so well, that performance in the theater was sort of superfluous, and, in a way, obscene." 8/10

However, there was blood where they didn't need put it, blood in the wrong moments (Kill Bill has in the exactly right moments.), and nudety that they didn't also need. However, entertained me.Ps.: there's also a big Quentin wannabe feeling. Of course they didn't manage to be even close.
(mx) wrote: The movie poor adaptation of Dead or Alive, does it really need a plot because serious who cared about this mess of a film. This has to the worst Video game adaptation that I'v ever seen in my life. The movie is boring forgettable mess and the action and the fighting in the film was really dull to watch.
