(ru) wrote: It's really only a 3 star movie, but the cast is excellent, so I'll give it an extra star for good measure. Nice to see Jason Dohring in things. Hopefully the Veronica Mars movie is better though.
(de) wrote: This was an excellent thriller. One that isn't without its problems. It mostly runs too long and the first 40 minutes or so of the movie are quite slow. The story, if you weren't paying enough attention, could get confusing. But I think it makes up for it with its ultra-violent portrayal of a man who, because of the debt and the fact that he's impoverished, is drawn into this struggle between several groups (Chinese mafia, cops, and the South Korean mob), and they're all after him for one reason or another. I'm not about to get into story specifics because it involves a lot of characters and a lot of story elements. And, as mentioned, the movie is incredibly violent. Surprisingly so in fact. But it doesn't feel gratuitous and it helps to sort of further the story along. The violence is actually kind of unsettling because it doesn't feel phony and over-the-top. I think the movie also does a good job at presenting how hard it is for some of these impoverished people to survive and what they need to do to make their lives better or easier. You get into Gu-nam as a character and you want to see him succeed in his quest. The acting is strong, I greatly enjoyed Kim Yun-Seok as Myun, I thought he was tremendous in the role. Again, not a perfect movie, but it is a pretty damn great thriller.
(jp) wrote: This animation movie plays with music, images (the best of the movie are the very good soundtrack and photography), reminds, dreams and even real videos to describe you the situation in Libanese-Israel war, and the things that soldiers lived. With a not very structured narration, it wants to describe more feelings than a story, and remembers a little to Apocalypse now and other war movies which try to describe the horror of war. Not absolutely original, but deep about the issue it talks about, and beautiful in its display.

People like Billy Mitchell, Ted Rogers, Ben Gold and Darren Olsen were stars among their the video game enthusiasts who pumped mountains of quarters into Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Centipede. Their time at the top was short-lived
(au) wrote: 8%, really? Okay, this film has it's flaws but it not THAT bad. Yes, it has the cliches to every torture film; the victim keeps saying "Please let me go! I'll do what ever you want! I won't tell anyone!" The dialogue is awful "What's real, Gary?". "What you can touch." HUH?The sex scene is ridiculous. Yeah, after almost getting killed by the torturer 5 minutes ago, I'd be in the mood to have sex too.The sudden twist at the end is just......... really. When it happens, you're not surprised, you just think "Okay. They're going to do that? Right."I never really bought the scene where Jennifer has acid poured on her face and then the next scene she wakes up and she has bandages on her face. Her face is okay but she has a prosthetic scar on her face. She peels it off, no problem. Maybe the torturer wanted to trick her, I dunno. And also, how many times does Jennifer keep getting knocked out. Every scene she tries to escape and then she gets knocked out about 10 times. Remember that episode of The Simpsons where they spoof The Prisoner and Homer gets knocked out over and over? It's like that.However, Elisha Cuthbert is good. I can go on forever about how gorgeous she is. I like the set of her "prison" and I like the cringe factor. The best scene is when she forced to drink blendered human body parts. I also like how in the first 30 minutes, it's just Elisha Cuthbert acting on her own. Well, unless you count the torturer. But he doesn't respond. But to carry the film on your own is hard to do. For a stupid movie, it's underrated. It's enjoyable if you ignore the flaws. I think critics saw too many torture films like the Saw and Hostel movies and were fed up.Also, did I mention how gorgeous Elisha Cuthbert is? I'd like to kidnap her myself.
(ag) wrote: Red Planet is not a bad movie but it does disappoint. It started really good and it was cool to see AMEE's role in the movie but they rush through the most important thing in the movie, the living "creatures" they find on the planet!!! WHY???? This was a huge weakness to me! The acting was good enough but not incredible in any way.

(jp) wrote: I enjoy the political actions as well as the story that goes beyond the original American-born perspective. This documentary shows the Vietnam War from the Vietnamese perspective more then the Americans. The end message is how wrong and utterly destructive wars can be. This film is a political statement and parallels with the similar belief that I had, which is America shouldn't have gotten involved with Vietnam.
