Lester Y (ru) wrote: There's a scene in this movie that's probably one of the funniest ever: a crazy musical sequence about mountains or something, with cheesy green screen effects and the whole nine. Now, it's funny by itself, but it mostly works because it comes so out of left field that you're caught off guard by what the hell just happened. And that's what the entire experience of The Taste Of Tea is, pretty much: a wonderful series of visual and thematic curve balls that doesn't seem to mean anything, except everything.It follows an extremely loose narrative, that's more like five separate storylines following the members of a seemingly normal Japanese family. The father is hypnotherapist. The mother is working on an animated sequence throughout the film. The son is in love with a new girl in school, and learns to play Go to win her heart. The little daughter thinks that a giant version of her is following her everywhere she does. The uncle is a record producer. The grandfather does all sorts of odd stuff around town. Ishii melds together elements the more conventional family drama (that actually reminds me of something like Yi-Yi, which I saw recently and also enjoyed) but smothers it with these whimsically surreal moments that are unexpected, but are ridiculously awesome. The giant version of the daughter is indeed huge and follows her everywhere (and the scene in the end with an expanding flower, a common motif in the film, is astounding), the musical sequence with the grandfather is acid-powered madness, the manga-thingy the mother comes up with is done in a strangely affecting way...all these things are extensions of the characters' (Ishii's) imaginations and they not only show impressive range and creativity, but a great sense of character development. I won't spoil the final scene, but it's a really extraordinary payoff that ties all these separate threads together with something that's uncharacteristically grounded. Other stuff: really good cinematography and soundtrack, a crucial ear for aural cues, and great acting from everyone involved. See it.

Thomas D (it) wrote: It's difficult for a particular franchise of films to live on for an extended period of time, let alone a long TV series and 4 feature films. With uninspired direction and a gradually silly film, It seems that after 15 years, this iteration of the Enterprise crew just ran out of gas. Though 'Insurrection' did well at further developing the crew of the Enterprise, 'Nemesis' puts a heavy focus on its villain. This time played by newcomer (at the time) Tom Hardy. Hardy plays Shinzon, a mysterious character hell-bent on completing his Romulan mission with a background linked to Captain Picard himself. Although the dialogue isn't always the best, Hardy shows just how good of an actor he would become, especially up against someone as revered as Patrick Stewart.Director Stuart Baird supposedly had never seen an episode of The Next Generation, and the way he handled the direction and tone of this film definitely showed that lack of knowledge. I think his attempt at creating a story that felt very different from what came before is admirable, but too much liberties taken and you may have some upset fans.This also comes into play when you think about the strange inclusion of a brother to Data, and Shinzon being a clone of Picard. I didn't find either of those two story lines compelling, nor did it really bring anything new to that approach of storytelling. It's only when I watched the actors bring much more out of the dialogue that I realized there could have been something great here.If for anything else, Shinzon is an extremely active villain and Hardy doesn't waste the extra screen time, though I was a bit turned off by a unique communication device he uses early on in the film, seriously it's just uncomfortable (and not Star Trek at all) for the wrong reasons. With diminished screen time for the Enterprise crew, they barely leave the bridge, except for one out of place Mad Max style desert sequence. Nemesis is just one of those Star Trek films I can't seem to figure out. I can tell the franchise fatigue seemed to set in, but there's still plenty of good with the performances of the crew and the newcomer Tom Hardy.+Hardy showed promise+Picard and Data's performances-But their strange subplots were unnecessary-Director/writers uncomfortable plot choices5.4/10

Adam S (mx) wrote: Betty Amann is beguiling as a Louise Brooks-esque thief who casts her spell on a young policeman in this Ufa classic, one of the last of the studio's mega-productions of the silent era. Walking home from a shift, policeman Gustav Froehlich ("Metropolis") notices a ruckus at a jewelry store; inside Amann has just been busted for lifting a diamond, and faithful to his job, despite being off duty, he takes her in. But the taxi ride to the station is just enough time for the girl to weave her seductive magic on the young man, and soon enough they are back at her swank apartment, clutched in a melodramatic clinch. Naturally, this leads to bad consequences, and lives are ruined on seemingly minor lies and actions. Director Joe May, a longtime veteran hardly mentioned in history books today, grasps onto the dying aesthetic of Expressionism, and the opening shots of Berlin, a bustling city of pavement, cars, and humanity, could be straight out of "The Man with the Movie Camera", but this is more of a romantic melodrama in which the participants get jerked around for letting their emotions dictate their actions, and in it's lush production, could stand along Sternberg, Stroheim, and Murnau for visual pop.
Wes S (ag) wrote: The characters are pretty solid in this version, but the plot isn't anything too special. The characters are memorable, the action is violent (a bit much at times) and the cinematography is neat. It's not a home run action flick, but it can be lots of gritty fun.
