Cheryl T (de) wrote: The beginning of this started out so cute and romantic, and made me think I was in for a love story. It was good up until the therapy session recommended for her parents, I realized then that this was a very different movie indeed. I could have turned it off then because the many twists and turns following were really overboard. Its like someone took the beginning of a good script and didn't know where to go with it next so filled up the last 3/4 with a bunch of crap to waste time.. not entertaining at all.

Chris M (fr) wrote: This is a deliberately paced (slow?!) story about the ambiguities of revenge, morality and redemption. We learn in the first scenes that Katalin Varga's husband has just learned that their son is actually the product of a rape, and he casts her out with "your bastard son". The rest of the story only slowly unravels, as she takes her son on a pilgrimage(?) to something better...The cinematography is beautiful and compels the viewer's attention. Details are important and the dialogue sparse. The central performance is striking, and our sympathies shift subtly throughout the story. It often leaves us to make our own minds up about this, rather than forcing an agenda upon us. The final sequences are gripping and tense.Definitely not for everyone, but if you're at least vaguely into arthouse movies, this should be on your list.

Joshua R (it) wrote: Shaun of the Dead is fun and clever, it makes reference and fun of horror movies and it's a great directed movie which Edgar Wright put a lot of his style on it, It's a great satire, it's a comedy and sometimes it's intense, but overall it's one of my favourite if not my favourite movie with zombies ever made.
Michael B (fr) wrote: A solid mystery with some good performances from some talented and young actors. Biggest problems range from out of character behavior and poor plot writing. But it over comes those problems and provides a very good movie.
Timothy S (ag) wrote: When I first saw "The New Kids", I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, and now some twenty odd years later I was again surprised by how well it has held up over the years. This remains a simple but effective revenge thriller with a good-looking young cast and a worthy attempt from gore-loving director Sean S. Cunningham at going more mainstream. He mucked it up with his last attempt, "A Stranger is Watching", but the former "Friday the 13th" mastermind gets it right here. You'll find yourself involved in this a lot more than you ever thought possible. I was filled with glee as the film gets more and more over the top withe each new scene, and I loved it. These teen-agers obviously don't believe in the Karate Kid's creed of fighting being a last resort. No, you turn James Spader down for a date and he will unleash Hell onto you and your family. And when the casting is right, there are a few people in the business who makes a more despicable villain than Spader. He's in fine form here, and a big part of why this film is so successful in attaining its minor goals. It doesn't set out to do much, but it remains one of the most memorable B movies of 1985. The plot is definitely nothing new, and the title is completely bland and forgettable, but "The New Kids" is a deceptively effective winner. You won't be able to tell for sure just when it happens, but you'll soon find yourself rooting for these characters, and despite its low aspirations, you can't fault the film for its obvious flaws.

Dave M (gb) wrote: Pablo Escobar (1949-1993) was a notorious drug trafficker and leader of Columbia's infamous Medellin drug cartel. He dealt exclusively in cocaine, starting in the mid-1970s. At the height of his power, his cartel controlled 80% of the world's cocaine, smuggling fifteen tons per day, and Escobar himself had an estimated net worth of $30 billion. He maintained his power and his freedom by either bribing or killing his enemies, including those in law enforcement and politics. He also enjoyed the loyalty and support of the mostly poor people in western Columbia who benefitted from the many community service projects he funded.In spite of his personal popularity and the strength of his criminal empire, the authorities were closing in when he made a deal with the government in 1991 to surrender himself in exchange for a light sentence in a luxurious prison. Escobar continued his criminal activities from "jail" and ended up escaping after just over a year behind bars. After a year and a half on the run, a U.S.-trained task force of Columbian police found Escobar, shooting and killing him as he tried to get away. Now, imagine marrying into Pablo Escobar's family when it seemed the world was his. That's the story in "Escobar: Paradise Lost" (R, 2:00). Josh Hutcherson (Peeta in "The Hunger Games") stars as Nick Brady, a young man from Canada who follows his older brother to Columbia with dreams of living on the beach. While working as a surfing instructor, he meets a beautiful young woman named Maria (Claudia Traisac)... as in Maria Escobar. By the time Nick learns that Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro) is Maria's uncle, Nick has fallen for her. She knows what her uncle does, but talks about it as if he's just an important businessman who exports their country's most popular product. She doesn't seem to understand the full extent of her uncle's power and brutality and Nick only gradually comes to his own understanding of who "El Patron" really is.Nick marries Maria and is welcomed into the Escobar family with open arms. The couple even moves on to Uncle Pablo's estate. Nick's brother, Dylan (Brady Corbet) and his wife Anne (Ana Girardot), who have a new baby and another one on the way, become very worried for Nick - and for themselves. But Maria isn't like the rest of her family and she is all Nick really cares about. Eventually, even Nick and Maria see that they should be joining Dylan and Anne in leaving the country, but by then, audience members have to ask themselves if it's too late. Most of the film's action takes place in the final couple of days before Escobar surrenders to authorities to begin his prison term. Before he goes away, he has a plan to safeguard his vast wealth and he asks for help from Nick, whom he appears to hold in very high regard. Pablo gives Nick a series of very specific instructions to carry out, which includes asking Nick to do things that he tells Escobar he's never done before. Escobar responds simply, "We all have to make sacrifices, Niko. You can do this." Without spoiling the ending, let me just say that Nick's errand doesn't go according to plan - anyone's plan."Escobar: Paradise Lost" feels so authentic, I was surprised to learn that it is NOT based on a true story. The film tells a tale that seems very plausible even in its smallest details, based on what we now know about Pablo Escobar and his criminal empire. Basing this film on a real person and real events, but focusing on a fictional main plot leaves writer-director Andrea Di Stefano free to be as creative as she likes with the story - and what a yarn she has spun! The film starts with intensity, allows for good characterization and for the development of the romance between Nick and Maria, then builds to a thrilling third act, while avoiding clichs found in many films of this kind. In short, the audience gets a little education and insight, a heartfelt romance and a harrowing fight for survival, all in a film that's fresh and entertaining from beginning to end. "A"
