Shane S (au) wrote: An interesting horror film with an "olde tyme" feel. This is a horror film that hopes to craft a unique story grounded in enough classic horror staples to keep the audience invested, but ultimately comes up a bit short. Abattoir has flashes of brilliance but does not really deliver. The lead actors are a bit weak and detract from the film at times. Dayton Callie and Lin Shaye help counter balance this with more passable performances. The actual plot of the film is utterly crazy, even by a horror film's standard. I think where it unravels a bit is that the story line is not standard enough to fulfill as a run of the mill horror fare and not innovative enough to be a statement piece. The clumsy final act is not really shocking enough and the suspense building in beginning is a little too weakly done. In the end, a confused film that tries to do too much.Abattoir is clearly the work of a director with a masterful knowledge of the genre, but he fails to stitch together a few great bits and pieces in a successful way.

Yes the acting is below-par and the CGI Grendal is amateurish, but bearing in mind it's obvious limited budget - i have seen far worse!

Josh F (au) wrote: Good ending to the Brosnan saga, despite what people say. So what for the few inconsistencies? Hating a film for two over the top scenes (Car chase and wind surfing scene) is pathetic, it's simply the good natured fun style that is the Bond series. The film is action packed with many nostalgic and largely subtle references to the last 19 Bond films. Unlike Craig, Brosnan shows a large amount of wit and charm and is one of the closest Bond renditions to Ian Felming's original Bond character. Although this film is too packed for its own good, Brosnan goes off with the same bang all Bond movies should go off with.

Ben T (nl) wrote: Raging Bull is one of Martin Scorsese's most iconic movies for good reason. Raging Bull is an absolute classic and one of the best movies ever. This is a boxing film but it's so much more. Robert De Niro gives one of the best performances of his entrie career. He's likeable yet you hate him at the same time. His performance is very physically demanding as he had to gain a load of weight and then loose it all again for his next movie. There's a brilliant scene where Jake La Motta just breaks down and starts punching a wall and Robert De Niro gives it his all. Joe Pesci is amazing as Jake's brother. I love how he's the voice of reason to Jake when he suspects his wife sleeping with other men, yet he's still a very violent and aggressive character. The rest of the acting is great but it's those two leads that carry the movie. This film is amazingly directed by the fantastic Martin Scorsese. This is full of all his trademarks and he did an amazing job with this film. The writing is fantastic, a lot of the dialogue leads to very tense seems which is great. The cinematography is excellent, the scenes in the ring are magnificent to look at and there are lots of brilliant long takes. The opening of this film is visually stunning, it's this brilliant wide take with the classical music, it's just amazing. The boxing scenes are brilliant. If you thought the stuff in Rocky or Warrior was brutal they are nothing compared to the boxing scenes here. The boxing scenes are incredibly brutal and have you on the edge of the seat, especially the last boxing match. This film is also brilliantly edited, the film while it feels long it's still very well edited. I also love the ending, the speech from De Niro, the music it's all just amazing. Raging Bull is a fantastic movie and it's one of Martin Scorsese's best. If Rocky is the most iconic boxing movie then in my opinion Raging Bull is the best. A+
Harry E (br) wrote: What a crazy movie! It doesn't really have a plot so much as a series of odd skits. Generally these are centered on the idea that everyone can be made willing to do absolutely anything, no matter how bizarre or grotesque, if paid off with enough money, but much of the movie is completely random: offbeat interplay between Peter Sellers and Ringo, many aimless bits, a lot of guest appearances (oh man, Laurence Harvey's striptease Hamlet, and that green-colored chanteuse scene with Roman Polanski and... wait for it... Yul Brynner! Wow!). The mad extravaganza sequence, in which all hell breaks loose on a ship (including a familiar vampire who comes pretty much out of nowhere), makes the shocking final setup (which is supposed to be the clincher for the people-will-do-anything-for-money theme) almost anticlimactic, and some of the aimless material (especially early on) doesn't really go anywhere, but there's enough really effective stuff in here to make it worthwhile. The director doesn't necessarily have the visual mastery of someone like Richard Lester, who's associated with films in this vein, but he makes sure to fill the screen with strange material (random nuns passing by and such). Sellers, really, seems to be the driving force behind this (and does a lot of the voice-overs for unimportant characters). This movie is actually pretty damn subversive; some scenes are so striking as to be nearly worthy of How I Won the War, O Lucky Man!, or maybe even Sweet Movie. (And its hallway tracking shots are similar to The Shining.) I guess John Lennon and Yoko were keen on this project too. A pretty wicked time, it must have been.The original tagline reads: 'The Magic Christian is: antiestablishmentarian, antibellum, antitrust, antiseptic, antibiotic, antisocial, & antipasto.' Yeah, that about sums it up.
