(jp) wrote: Horror film protip - if you want anyone to take your film seriously, as these filmmakers are trying to do, don't film your primary location as the house from Psycho on the Universal backlot. Poorly directed, acted, written, shot, and location scouted... The Appearing is what you'd call "a dud".
(ag) wrote: Best movie I've seen in a long time. Betty White is amazing! This is a tear-jerker and true love story!
(kr) wrote: Loaded with unflattering close-ups, noisy dialogue and more consumer products than your local Netto, Adam Deacon's urban comedy is clumsy, in-your-face and painfully unfunny. The film's humour relies less on satire and more on gross-out comedy and zany performances, reducing what could have been an amusing parody into unappealing, dim-witted nonsense. The characters are irritating, the violence is unnecessary and the plot is slimmer than a king-size silver Rizla. Deacon, are you dizzy, blood?
(gb) wrote: Excellent thriller! wonderful cast from the sup't of the building, to the teacher, & attorney, janitor, husband, employer. Very good storyline, excellent acting. This will be one of my favorite thrillers now.

(kr) wrote: an odd film, mostly funny but also very sad. sometimes it's a bit all over the place, but it's watchable.
(es) wrote: Jim Jarmusch's work can be either intimidating or off-putting, and in equal measure, to cinephiles because it feels so relaxed--almost as if it was a spur-of-the-moment, off-the-cuff precursor of reality-TV, an inside-joke with everyone involved slipping a nod and a wink, as if on a drunken dare, a mickey of JD passed back and forth along with a pack of Marlboros. This brought to mind many good memories of one of the oddest residents of The Criterion Collection: 'Fishing with John' (an exemplary and hilarious six-part mini-series in which John Lurie goes on fishing expeditions with five American cinematic greats, his partners-in-crime here, Jarmusch and Tom Waits amongst them; one that I'd love to see both get a blu upgrade as well as more episodes, now 25 years later). Also, clearly Jarmusch had a fine rapport with his actors, for this is by far the best and most restrained work I have ever seen from Roberto Benigni.One of Jarmusch's more atypical films, 'Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai', is still my personal favourite, but this is right up there alongside. It would also make an intriguing double-bill with Jeff Nichols' stellar, though more serious in tone, recent film, 'Mud'.

(kr) wrote: This film has held up really well. It's probably a film I heard a lot more about in infamy before I ever sat down and watched it. There's a great film noir feel about it and the writing and story line provide far more than the box art would have you believe. It's a classic Hollywood crime thriller story. Douglas provides a solid role but Sharon Stone, both in beauty and acting ability, is the standout star of this film.
(au) wrote: Nicolas Cage and the supporting cast are fun to watch, but unfortunately "Book of Secrets" is a wasted sequel that is redundant and lazy with its plot, but is good enough for family movie night.
(us) wrote: As in his mighty "Amadeus", Milos Forman again narrates a picaresque drama within aristocratic circles in this adaptation of "Les Liasons Dangereuses". Less energetic and lush than the one directed by Stephen Frears, even with a younger and fresher, cast. Forman bets for a subtler, classier approach and decides to concentrate solely on the tribulations of the character that names the film, finishing it before other characters' fate come to full circle. In my view, a controversial decision that gives the upper hand to Frears' previously released take on the same story.
