Jens S (us) wrote: The interesting premise is not developed to its full potential here. While the production design and effects are overall decent, it's the story that drags on a little bit. What begins looking like Blade Runner soon becomes more of a Neil Blomkamp kinda film, without taking the action or violence very far. The showdown is another example of a good idea not entirely thought or pulled through. Too bad, this could have been cooler.

Ann S (au) wrote: Good rental from Netflix. Stephen Lang's acting excellent.

Alaeddine E (us) wrote: This is a masterpiece in storytelling. The cinematography, the flashback sequences and the acting are top notch.It holds nothing back from the sad, macabre and sometimes gory reality of the life in the slums,It has comedic and tragic elements that play well together in engaging the viewer. The high octane action sequences get tiring early into the movie however.

Joanna B (ca) wrote: After weeks of wading laboriously through Oscar hopefuls, a good light-hearted girls-night-out to a bad B-grade tear-jerker seemed well in order. With two premiering this week it can be difficult to choose, however when it comes to Dear John and Remember Me one stone is enough to kill both birds.Dear John Adapted from yet another of Nicholas Sparks best selling romance novels (The Notebook, Message in a Bottle), Dear John is a softly focused and overly sentimental modern Romeo and Juliet post September 11.Serving as the old-fashioned American archetype of the strong silent type, Ex-model turned actor Channing Tatum pulls off the broody but endearing lead. Contrasting highly with young Kate Winslet-esque Amanda Seyfried who plays Tatum's slightly holier-than-thow but likeable love interest.Home on leave; Special Forces Green Beret John Tyree (Tatum) stays with his emotionally disconnected obsessive coin-collecting father (Richard Jenkins), when he meets down-to-earth college student Savannah Curtis (Seyfried). Embracing the highly closed off John, Savannah welcomes him into her happy and calm way of life; doing charity work, riding horses and explaining the reasons behind her aspirations to open a ranch for autistic children, like her six year old neighbour Alan (Braeden Reed). Savannah also helps John to understand and tolerate his hermit father's peculiar ways. As their two week whirlwind courtship comes to an end, Savannah returns to school and vows to write John as much as possible whilst he serves the last year on his tour of duty. Their brief separation seems to be an easy and endearing situation until the intervention of the events of 911 and John's once short term commitment becomes and indefinite division.Will Savannah accept John's decision to reenlist? Will Savannah wait for his return? Can John survive in battle if Savannah refuses? Remember Me A contextually flimsy and unstructured love story come dreary family melodrama, Remember Me's morose tone, sluggish pacing and overly weighted in significance script is bittersweet in this less than affecting movie. In need of an immediate acting intervention, Twilight's teen-heartthrob Robert Pattison channels the dramatic likes of James Dean and Marlon Brando as he attempts to turn his dreamy soulful eyes, into a soulful performance. Since the unprovoked suicide of his older brother, NYC college student Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) has had family issues. Tyler's turbulent relationship with his arrogant and insensitive power-attorney father (Pierce Brosnan) differs greatly with his wonderfully adoring relationship with his younger and giftedly artistic sister Caroline (Ruby Jerins).After yet another family tiff, Tyler enjoys a night out drinking and venting with flatmate and friend Aidan (Tait Ellington), but becomes involved in a back street altercation. Unjustly beaten and incarcerated overnight by the attending policeman Neil Craig (Chris Cooper), the boys vow to find a way to get back at him.Still bearing the bruises, Aidan spots Craig dropping off his daughter Ally (Emilie de Ravin) at the same school. Aidan convinces Tyler to charm Ally in hopes of beginning a relationship and then exacting their revenge. However, as their mirroring family issues and a need for love intensifies their relationship, a true bond is formed and a real relationship blossoms.Will Ally find out the reason behind Tyler's initial attraction? Can Tyler and his father ever mend their broken relationship? Is there something greater at work in this plot?The Verdict: Sadly neither of these films had a great impact. Dear John had promise but the longing looks, lingering kisses and continual character separation saw the movie loose energy; Remember Me with its clumsy scene changes and labouring subtext lacked the heartfelt anchor required for an affecting film. As one film ends with nothing more than a footnote and the other with a winding sucker punch, each of these romantic drama's offer something unique, however neither fully manage to evoke true emotion.Published: The Queanbeyan AgeDate of Publication: 19/03/2010

Robert R (ca) wrote: Thanks to some keen use of such thematic ideas as the cycle of violence and the causes and effects of death, "In The Bedroom" kicks the crap out of the viewer's heart and leaves them with a whole lot to think about.

Eric B (au) wrote: If you want heavy mafia drama, you go to The Godfather or Goodfellas. But if you're looking for unapologetic mafia Hollywoodization of how things went down with Lucky Luciano and them fellas, watch this version instead. You know that Hollywood is pulling one over you, but since it's so in-your-face, you kinda go along with their style.

Bloodmarsh K (ag) wrote: I found the lack of dialogue one of the films positives. It starts to decline around the hour mark, when the dialogue starts to pick up - but it's one of those rare movies that could have went on for three hours, and still hold my interest.

William W (kr) wrote: An excellently directed and edited propaganda piece and cautionary tale filmed just as Hitler was coming to full power in Germany. Already many of the themes would be hammered on that would drive the country to war five years later and result in his suicide and the country's defeat in 1945. You can see a country being swept to patriotic fever that would unfortunately climax years later in the deaths of millions of people.
