Allan C (kr) wrote: Pretty terrible action film that I only watched because I love Mickey Rourke and I wanted to put something on that only deserved half of my attention while I worked on my laptop. The film is about a Muslim detective and an American posing as a graduate student trying to find the man behind a series of terrorist bombings in Indonesia. The mad bomber is none other than a white suited, greasy haired Mickey Rourke. Rourke is in full goofball mode here, sniffing flowers, wearing ridiculous looking sarongs, and simply doing what I suspect was trying to give hie character something more than what was in the script. The main thing I enjoyed about this film is trying to imaging that Rourke was the same character he played in "Double Team" and had somehow lived. Just as in "Double Team" Rourke does get a slow motion shot of himself walking away form an explosion he was responsible for. That was about as good as this film got. Probably only worth watching for Rourke completionists (which I count myself among).

Steven S (ca) wrote: Poorly made. There are numerous sound issues, and some of the boringest scenes to film interviews at. The background music was also bad. The shots of lone macs sitting in various "country" settings, like on a tractor, were not interesting or creative, but they thought they were.The interviewees were a lot of nobodies with nothing interesting or insightful. Which is typical for any book and movie trying to do the history of Apple, because none of the major players will ever talk. Someday if Jobs retires we'll get a great book or movie and understand how it all went down.The only interesting guy was the sound guy who invented the mac startup sound we all know. He was so sarcastic and jaded, it was hilarious.

Silvi L (es) wrote: Existen muchas pelculas acerca de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, pero quiz una no tan promocionada comercialmente es "Amn." (2002), del director griego Costa-Gavras, la cual aborda un tema poco comn en las pelculas del gnero: el papel de la Iglesia Catlica frente a las evidencias de los campos de concentracin y el exterminio de los judos que, segn sugiere el filme, fueron conocidas por el alto clero de forma temprana. Al respecto, Juan Pablo II se disculp en nombre de la Iglesia en 1997 "por las conciencias adormecidas de algunos cristianos durante el Nazismo y la inadecuada "resistencia espiritual" de otros grupos ante la persecucin de los judos". La disculpa no asume el importante rol del Vaticano como Estado, con fuerza poltica y diplomtica y, naturalmente, no remedia nada, pero cabe que nos preguntemos cmo puede una institucin humana e imperfecta, que se equivoca y pide disculpas, generar dogmas indiscutibles para gobernar las vidas de los catlicos. Pero, peor an, lo que la pelcula sugiere es que no solamente hubo omisin y silencio por parte de la Iglesia, sino incuso acciones tendientes a ayudar al rgimen nazi, facilitando, por ejemplo, despus de la guerra, los procedimientos para el exilio e impunidad de los ex-oficiales. "Amn." nos presenta a un indiferente Po XII, sin postura tica propia sino al vaivn del escenario poltico, demasiado cuidadoso, demasiado neutral ante el despedazamiento de los derechos humanos. Un personaje ficticio, el joven jesuita Riccardo Fontana, interpretado por Mathieu Kassovitz (quien encarnara tambin al gran amor de Amelie Poulain en la conocida pelcula), reivindica la verdadera entrega a los principios ticos ms all de la institucionalidad, la jerarqua y la disciplina. Impotente ante la cpula clerical, conocedor de los horrores en los campos de concentracin por testimonio del teniente Kurt Gerstein -cuyos informes, en la vida real, sirvieron para reconstruir la historia del holocausto-, se coloca una estrella de David en el pecho y marcha junto a miles de judos hacia el destino terrible que les espera. La moralidad del protagonista Gerstein (Ulrich Tukur) es ambivalente, pues si bien su conciencia humanista lo lleva a tratar de denunciar los crmenes que ha atestiguado, no deja de ser eficiente para prestar sus servicios de asesoramiento a la hora de mejorar los procesos de eliminacin de "unidades", como se denomina a los judos entre los oficiales. Quiz esas irreconciliables contradicciones fueron las que lo llevaron, en ltima instancia, al oscuro final de su existencia.
Dave J (ca) wrote: Wednesday, August 7, 2013 (1994) Surviving The Game ACTION Started with the 1932 film "The Most Dangerous Game" starring Joel McCrea, and since then there have been more movies coming out using the exact same theme centering on hunters hunting people with the only difference in this case as well as several others is that they're always using different cast as well as new locales whether it's on the desert or the forest. Stars real life African American rap artist "Ice-T" as Jack Mason assuming he was going to be employed by working for Thomas Burns (Rutger Hauer) as a guide for him and his friends. Mason soon finds out that hunting hobos or people in general is how they get their kicks. There are many far out scenarios as well as some questions that were not addressed upon watching this film such as how does a puny man such as Ice T take on a big guy like Gary Busey or how Ice T able to make it home if the last plane had already been taken away. Regardless of it's problems Ice-T's presence is still a fascinating character to watch. 2.5 out of 4 stars
Irish E (de) wrote: Even though they aren't married, George and Doris are a perfect couple. They start off just having an affair, but end up seeing each-other through the many ups and downs of life. This is a sweet film.Allan Alda and Ellen Burstyn are perfect in their roles. The theme song, sung by Johnny Mathis, is wonderful.
The Movie W (gb) wrote: I'm a huge fan of the "Bulldog Drummond" series from the thirties and this is the first of two updatings of the character made in the sixties. I also love trashy sixties movies, in fact to me Sixties cinema is all about hot Euro-chicks, Hammer monsters, and Elvis churning out B-musicals. So why didn't I enjoy this? Well strange as it may seem it just takes itself far too seriously. Give me the tongue in cheek tone of "The Man From Uncle" anyday. Richard Johnson is well cast though as Drummond; he had rather unwisely turned down the role of James Bond for "Dr. No".
