James L (br) wrote: Had more of a TV drama feel to it but it's solidly put together and had me engaged throughout the whole film.

Conrad T (ru) wrote: I could not believe this was coming from Paul Haggis. It was hard to follow the so called 3 intervened stories but my view was that 2 other storylines were just what Liam was writing in his new book. I could not even see how they were connected except Liam was projecting his own life into the lives of the characters in the 2 stories of his new novel.

James S (br) wrote: Occasionally the straight to dvd market can throw up a real gem. It would be very generous to describe Elsewhere as a "gem", but it's a decent enough thriller which goes above and beyond the confines of its meagre budget.A lot of the movies success has to do with having cast Anna Kendrick in the lead as Sarah, the bookish best friend of Jillian, who sets about trying to solve the disappearance of her wild child amigo after receiving a violent video message from her.Kendrick is a young actress who is not likely to be appearing in films of this budget again due to her massive talent in front of the camera and it's her that holds the movie together with a much more assured performance from the female lead than you would usually find in films of this kind. Tania Raymonde has great chemistry with her as Jillian in a nice but believable contrasting best friendship.It's a shame that the plot of the film is so predictable. There is only really one outcome, and one person who could really be responsible for the shady goings on so Elsewhere isn't exactly brimming with tension, though there are a couple of nice creepy moments. It borrows the usual tricks from suburban horror movies and plays them all well enough but any fans of the genre will see any scare coming.The film is of that ilk that are obsessed with technology and social media to advance the plot lines. There is scarcely a scene which doesn't feature a mobile phone but for the most part they do their job rather than hindering the story and the film cannot be accused of making the viewer ask that questions of "Why don't they just use their phone?"Elsewhere isn't likely to be appearing anywhere near the top of Anna Kendrick's resume in the future but it proves that with a talented star and a semi-decent script, not all low budget, direct to dvd horror has to be abysmal.

Steph O (ru) wrote: Michael Angarano makes a crappy movie tolerable. There's nothing too awful about "One Last Thing"... it just isn't a great movie in general. A little bit lame, not exactly original... but like I said Michael Angarano makes it worth watching if you're a fan of his.

Camille L (us) wrote: Fire Birds n'a absolument aucun intrt que ce soit historiquement ou cinmatographiquement parlant. En revanche, Fire Birds est un divertissement aussi vain qu'efficace, un film d'action qui ressemble plus un fac-simil de Top Gun avec Nicolas Cage et Tommy Lee Jones (bon point), sans Take my Breath Away (nouveau bon point) et avec Sean Young la place de Kelly McGillis (well...). Moins long, plus rythm et surtout bien plus drle que son an, Fire Birds est une bonne manire de passer 90 minutes devant la tlvision. On aurait quand mme aim un peu plus d'ambition que a...

Zhanyi J (au) wrote: The person who said Veronika Voss is very much like Wilder's Sunset Boulevard is dead on. This film however is so much more enjoyable than Sunset Boulevard. The cinematography is superb. The glaring white in the doctor's office and amongst many scenes are some of the best shots you'll ever see.
