(us) wrote: Laughable action flick with numerous continuity errors and god awful cgi. The movie is about a giant storm but almost every scene is bright and sunny. The dramatic climax involves the main characters running around an abandon factory look for cell phone service. So amateurish that it's entertaining
(fr) wrote: Christopher Hitchens is a pimp (as usual). Great doc, really interesting points made but as far as I'm concerned the whole thing is a one-horse race.
(ru) wrote: Beautiful, sad, filled with poetry, I loved asian movies, they're really original with lesbian stories. The imagination, such a hard and painful thing that lives with us and complicate our lifes, but at the same time, it gives you something to live for when you feel that you're nothing. Def one of my favs.

But when finding the last dragon egg and having it hatch, his plans are changed forever as the egg will only hatch when it comes into the hands of it's one and only rider. But the king who was trying to force the dragon to hatch would rather see the last dragon dead than with another rider.
(mx) wrote: A reclusive and curmudgeonly Vietnam war veteran finds himself caring for the daughter of a friend in this superbly acted but uneven drama. The whole bulk of the film is carried by Danny Glover's exceptional performance as the lead character and especially little Zoe Weizenbaum as the adorable half-Vietnamese girl who slowly transforms the gruff character. However, two things prevent MISSING IN AMERICA from achieving classic status: 1) a subplot involving a violent-tempered war vet (played by Ron Perlman), feels rushed and less well-developed than it should be, and 2) the unexpectedly tragic ending. The latter is especially shocking because it comes completely out of nowhere when one is least expecting it to. It also feels awkwardly tacked on and comes across as unsatisfying, an unfortunate shortcoming of an otherwise moving and powerful film. The first hour and a half is captivating, though.

(ca) wrote: Its far from brilliant, there's dreadful acting throughout but for light-hearted capers it does a job.
