Across the Universe torrent reviews
(it) wrote: Interesting, fairly original central plot, but there is a large degree of inevitability about the conclusion. The central relationship in the movie is reasonably interesting and not at all the average male-female relationship. However, this gives you a fair indication of how it is going to end. This, and some other scenes.This significantly reduces the impact of the final scene.The plot is also a bit unfocused. Too many sub-plots that go nowhere. Too much drifting at times. More time should have been spent on the main characters and their relationship, and less on secondary characters and events.Decent performances, however.

(es) wrote: Definitely a different role for Adam Sandler, but he and Don Cheadle bring a yin and yang relationship in a sad yet hopeful retribution movie.
(br) wrote: Sad in the beginning but got better. Great storyline of loves changed around that were able to be improved but never forgotten of what their past was. Lots of great acting, humour and love.

(ag) wrote: Everyone hates this movie, but it's really funny and good. This is basically the best version possible of the "dad has to juggle work and his kids" formula.
(ag) wrote: 'Crouching Tiger' is one the most beautiful action movies ever made, filled with great martial arts fights and a very touching argument, it's definitely one of Ang Lee's bests.
(it) wrote: In this humorous Western, Aussie Paul Hogan plays a cowboy running from the law. Lightning Jack Kane is a member of the notorious Younger Brother gang. He is the only member to survive their last shoot-out. Fortunately, he was only a minor member of the gang and escapes notice. Jack decides to rob a bank. He gets away with a small amount of cash and a mute, Ben, as a hostage. Unfortunately for Jack, Ben wants to be an outlaw so Jack is stuck with him. Eventually the two become grudging friends.

(it) wrote: Gate of Hell (AKA Jigokumon) is an effective drama set in twelfth-century Japan. When a young soldier falls in love with a woman, later finding out that she is married, his obsession and the lengths that he will go to to win her love lead to the ultimate tragedy. The film won Oscars for best foreign-language film and best costume design, both of which were richly-deserved. The film is a beautiful tapestry of work in both its look and design. The landscapes and the costumes are all remarkably rich with color and detail. The story itself and the dynamics of it still work, although I would argue that it doesn't really pick up steam until about halfway through. Not that any of it is boring, but the real thrust of the story isn't itself very obvious or concrete right away. Regardless, it's a beautiful film and one that I'm glad has been properly restored.
(fr) wrote: Beautiful film. Donald Crisp and Sara Allgood as the patriarch and matriarch of the Morgan clan turn in two of cinema's greatest performances. Walter Pidgeon as the preacher Mr. Gruffydd is inspiring, and a young Maureen O'Hara is beautiful and mesmerizing as always. Roddy McDowall gives one of the better child performances of the period, which is a good thing, because much of the film rests on his little shoulders, and he carries it well. This is without a doubt one of director John Ford's best works. Though "Citizen Kane" will forever remain the greatest and most important film of 1941, I now at least have an understanding of why the producers of this film walked away with the Oscars that night.
