Vadim D (kr) wrote: I loved the source material, and the film did not disappoint. The characters are not very likable, but I think the great cast still find a way to make them sympathetic. Kate Winslett and Patrick Wilson are perfection and embody their roles unbelievably. This is a movie that sticks with you long after it's over.

Philip Z (fr) wrote: One of the strangest children's films I've ever seen. Prior to seeing it, I was really excited, given the cast of known names, the chance to see them as children, the 1930s setting, and the director Alan Parker. All of these things got me hyped to finally check it out. Well, I got my chance last night and to be honest, I have no idea what I just watched. After about a half-hour to forty minutes, I got tired of the gimmick. Seeing kids playing mobsters with guns that fire cream pies instead of bullets was cool for a little while but doesn't work at feature length. Hearing these kids talk tough is cute at first and then the gag wears off. I also had a problem with the songs, it is more than obvious that adult voices are dubbed over the kids moving mouths. This wouldn't be a problem for me if there were more of a winking tone about it, but it feels like this film is taking itself too seriously. Again, the movie was a strange watch and it wore out its welcome after a while.

Danny R (kr) wrote: One of the most original, poignant and creative motion pictures in recent memory which is brilliantly directed by Michel Hazanavicius. It is a love letter to a bygone era, this silent, black & white masterpiece concerns George Valentin, played by French actor Jean Dujardin who's layered performance is nothing short of phenomenal, he has already won the Palma d'Or and Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor and has just received an Academy Award nomination for his terrific turn; a narcissistic matinee idol and established movie star, who is every inch a silent-movie icon with his pencil-thin mustache, slick back hair and killer smile. Ignoring the warnings from Al Zimmer, wonderfully played by John Goodman a powerful studio producer who tells him that talkies will becoming the next big thing, but George does not listen and refuses to change up his act, his career falls into oblivion and he collapses into poverty and alcoholism, while a young bit-actress named Peppy Miller, superbly played by Berenice Bejo in an Oscar nominated performance her career takes off into full-fledge stardom. All the actors in this film are exceptional in their performances, in which they use body language and facial expressions to relay their meanings, and this speak volumes and greatly aids in telling the story. Superlative supporting performances from James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, Mssi Pyle, Ed Lauter and Malcom McDowell. Special kudos must go to the scene-stealing Jack Russell Terrier who plays George's faithful dog who's every appearance on the screen will make you smile. The films majestic imagery is truly breathtaking thanks to Guillaume Schiffman's mesmerizing black & white cinematography; for anyone who is reluctant to see this gem of a motion picture because it is a silent movie, i say to them, do yourself a big favor and watch it, because you will be delightfully, surprised and throughly entertained from beginning to end. Funny, charming and heartbreaking a total cinematic triumph. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius. Highly Recommended.

Overall I should be really depressed right now considering the lack of stuff I've accomplished in my life but since I think I finally have things figured out and know the direction I shuld go in, I don't feel too bad. I just have to hold on until I go to my little retreat at the end of April. I notice there are a lot of gorgeous, sexy women who have their birthdays around now like Sharon Stone, Nina Hartley and Dana Delaney who turns 49 today. I'm at least in very good company. One thing is that there's still an awful lot of important films I haven't seen. At my age I should be farther along and I'll be working on that from this point on. The most confounding film I've seen lately has been "Broken Lizard's Club Dread". I had been wanting to check these guys out but now I'm confused as to what I saw. This wasn't a spoof of slasher movies so much as a slasher movie with jokes. It didn't help that the entire cast played the script so seriously the humor mainly fell flat even when it was obvious. Now I probably have to see "Super Troopers" to try to figure out these guys. I don't watch much porn these days but I saw a good one last night, "Dark Chambers" starring Marilyn Chambers. It's a 2000 film so Marilyn is a bit bigger than she was in her "Green Door" days but she's still unbelievably sexy. There was a good variety of female looks in the movie as well, Asia Carrera, cute and hot as ever, another old-timer Erica Boyer also packing a few more pounds but still enthusiastic and a woman I saw for the first time, Lauren Montgomery. a strikingly beautiful blonde with puffy natural breasts. The movie was directed by Veronica Hart who's really learned how to shoot sex scenes for maximum effect, espcially the orgy scene at the end of the picture. Later today, I'll celebrate after a fashion by eating out, then come back home and watch "Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders", which hopefully will be as mind-blowing as I've heard.
