(us) wrote: The Future occasionally gets quirky, but the lack of character emotion within its extremely slow narrative, along with the added surrealism and the silly, preaching narration makes this film awfully incoherent.
(it) wrote: Um timo filme de animao sobre viagem no tempo. Extremamente fofo e com uma histria bem amarrada. O melhor do filme que apesar da garota conseguir poderes de viajar no tempo, ela o faz apenas com objetivos mesquinhos, pensando em si mesmo, ainda que de forma inocente, algo copiado depois no filme ingls Questo de Tempo. E uma coisa que gosto dos filmes japoneses : Eles no fazem questo de um final feliz!
(ag) wrote: 2 1/2 stars... Sam Rockwell redeemed it a little for me. The characters' actions were inconsistent, the pacing was terrible. The ending was not chilling because it didn't follow the natural progression of Joshua's behavior, it just seemed random. This could have been a much better movie if only the plot holes were worked out a little better. 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' took this idea and made a much better movie from it.
(ag) wrote: Wow, this is pretty awful. Extremely low budget, the acting is atrocious. The score is horrible, the screenplay is flat and unoriginal. The nosy neighbor woman and her husband are a blatant rip-off of the Kravitz?s in Bewitched. I can?t even see children being entertained by this.
(it) wrote: There are two surprising things about "Jungle 2 Jungle". The first is that amazingly, this is not a sequel, but actually a remake of a French film (unlike "Journey 2: the Mysterious Island" or "2 Fast, 2 Furious" which are sequels). The second surprise is that this is nothing more than a lame family comedy. Even if you had lived your entire life in a jungle and had never seen a film before, '"Jungle 2 Jungle" would be recognized as a predictable pile of lizard guts. This family film is not funny, believable or touching and the characters will make you cringe. I heard the original isn't very good and unsurprisingly, neither is this movie. (On VHS, January 2012)

(ag) wrote: Naughty, Bawdy, 42nd Street... Musicals in the 1930's were the early salvo's fired in the war between MGM & Warner Bros. for domination of Hollywood. Columbia had short reels, Paramount has a few grenades to drop starring Gary Cooper and Fox was there... but MGM & Warner's were the powerhouses. In the end, MGM ruled musicals while Warner's led in Gangster films and later 'Action' films... but '42nd Street' along with the early 'Goldigger's' films were the blockbusters of the musical line. Sporting Busby Burkley's direction (choreography), the film delivers us into the depression era world of starving stage actors with the realism of the actual depression era it is filmed in. Introducing us to an already budding Dick Powell and fresh faced awkward seeming Keeler, as well as a young pre-MGM Ginger Rogers. Well paced in story song and dance, the film is lively and carries itself exceptionally well. If you have an opportunnity to see it on the big screen... do so.
