(kr) wrote: This film was fantastic... and it played alot of music that I don't listen to (might even say I don't like).... yet, the bond between father and son that was being drawn out (based on a true story), was incredible... definitely a must see.
(jp) wrote: Cheesy looking CG, but it had an interesting plot, great use of comic strip characters, and a great performance from Frank Welker as Garfield and Odie

"Chile's first martial arts movie is a cheesy trip through 1980s excess, where genre quickly gets lost in the desert. It's knowingly daft fun with a violent sting in its tail." Zaror is talented, I look forward to seeing him in Machete Kills. Espinoza (Mandrill) is a capable director, Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman should be good.

(mx) wrote: Not the most original story, but the world and art is very creative and makes full use of the premise that is, a world that only has robots. If it didn't have that, it would have been less enjoyable.
(ca) wrote: Hilariously bad. Tonnes of gore, goofy jokes and characters, but it is very endearing. Peter Jackson did a great job.
(jp) wrote: I grew up watching this film and it made an indelible mark on me as a child. Its pro-nature message, combined with the mystery and suspense, made it an unforgettable experience. Surprisingly, years later, it still totally holds up. Plenty of excitement, character drama and best of all there isn't a false note. Perhaps because it's based off a true story. Remarkably, this movie was tapping into a relevant social concern that would become tenfold in years to come. Who would have thought something starring the memorably odd Powers Boothe would mean so much.

(es) wrote: What in the world did I just watch? Holy cow, this movie is insane. Even spelling out the premise is enough to make your head spin: A puppeteer is struggling for money so he gets a job for a filing company. While at this job he discovers a secret door that takes you into the mind of John Malkovich. You then experience life through Malkovich's body for 15 minutes after which you are dropped out onto the side of the New Jersey turnpike. WHAT?! And that's just the general synopsis, I didn't even touch on things like a couple who lives in an apartment full of disabled animals, or the office being on the seven and a half floor where the ceilings are only about 4-feet high, or a secretary who seemingly can't hear every fourth word you say and continues to miss the same word every time you repeat yourself. I mean this world that has been generated is so ludicrously off the wall that I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to be laughing or just shaking my head in confusion. It's truly a fantasy film in many ways because all the characters (with the possible exception of John Malkovich) never act surprised by anything that is going on.I think I could accept the insanity of the world Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze created for me, but there are 2 big issues I have with the movie. First of all, I feel like they are trying to make some pretty interesting and serious points about discovering your own identity and sexuality. It's some powerful stuff that I think the cast could have handled relatively well. However, since the tone of the movie is downright farcical, it just feels out of place when they start hitting us with these heady concepts. Also when you're in a world where John Malkovich's agent has no issue with his client making a request to stop acting in order to put all his efforts into puppetry, or a coworker doesn't even question when someone suggests they've found a door into John Malkovich's mind, suddenly I feel like you're making these real world issues (like sexual orientation) seem just as fantastical. The movie raises interesting questions, but never really addresses them because it doesn't take place in reality.My other big problem is one that is not unique to this film, but it always is difficult for me to accept. None of the characters are likable, and there is no real protagonist. For part of the movie you can kind of sympathize with John Cusack, but then he becomes unhinged. The same situation arises with Cameron Diaz, she starts off quite nice, but becomes overly whiny and eventually she also goes insane. Catherine Keener is detestable from the beginning, although I think the character she's portraying is intended that way. Even Malkovich kind of rubs me the wrong way. I sympathize with what is happening to him, but I can't say I got to know him well enough to get attached to him. (It is worth pointing out, though, that his acting is solid and you really see a difference in his performance when someone is controlling him.) Perhaps the only person I find tolerable is Orson Bean as Dr. Lester, and he's barely in the film. I can't say Being John Malkovich is a bad film, I'm just utterly puzzled by it and therefore found little enjoyment from watching it. It's definitely one I don't need to see again. Oh, and one final point that I couldn't figure out where else to work into this review, but it needed to be mentioned. The actual puppetry that is shown is PHENOMENAL. The movements of the puppets is so perfect and life-like, I think I could have watched a 90-minute movie of just that and probably would have enjoyed it more.
(fr) wrote: A superb sequel which has too often been overshadowed by the previous success of murder on the Orient Express. Both excellent tales in the own right, and both equally original with their conclusions, yet this novel literally providing that killer edge like no other. Whilst boasting many of todays film and tv stars, I simply can't think of a greater detective novel that has since outdone this classic which is now over 30 years old - and that's coming from a big fan of midsomer murders!
