(mx) wrote: I really wanted to like this movie. It is that kind of movie that almost forces you to like it but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The beginning of this movie was quite exciting as it reflected the true spirit of the book and some of that felt a bit lost by the end. Nevertheless this movie stands alone among all the other modern cookie cutter movies that sink to the bowels of Netflix (if they're lucky), this film takes it's genre bending, zany antics, original storyline and impending doom of B-movie constraints and uses them all to it's advantage. I hope the sequel "This Book is Full of Spiders" is made into a film adaptation as well with Williamson and Mayes back on the bill.

(us) wrote: Sands of Oblivion - A sci-fi channel original movie. Not bad for sc-fi channel fare... but still disappointing given the premise and that it starred Morena Baccharin (sp?) and Adam Baldwin. Film basically follows a small gorup of archaeologists who are attempting to unearth and save the buried sets of Demille's 10 Commandments. During the course of this they discover old Cecil had used many authentic Egyptian relics stolen from Egypt... among them is the amulet of Ra which was used to help imprison 'The Left Hand of Seth" - a psychotic Egyptian demi-god type thing. Anyway, I expect you can guess what happens next. At least this one was better than Alien Apocalypse

I thought Rahul Bose was amazing, and while I don't usually care for Kareena Kapoor, she gave a great performance. A great effort and worth anyone's time. This would be a great introduction to Bollywood for most Americans. Then, transition to something like Dhoom 2 for the action and then Om Shanti Om for the full effect.

(br) wrote: Well made look at a reality show in which the contenders are armed and set to kill each other. The camerawork and the editting match up perfectly against any major reality show out there. Has a good old school Running Man vibe to it, but the fact that not one character is that likable kind of kills the excitement.

(fr) wrote: Director James Ivory and Producer Ismail Merchant are world renowned for their rich and beautiful costume dramas such as A Room With A View (1985), Howard's End (1992) and The Remains of the Day (1993), here they took on the life of the most famous painters of the 20th Century, it was based on a controversial biography by Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington, and there is the sense Merchant Ivory have over-reached with this one. The film focuses on a particular period in the life of Pablo Picasso (Anthony Hopkins). In 1943, at the age of 61, he met young aspiring artist Franoise Gilot (Natascha McElhone), and for the next decade and a bit, they had a relationship, they had two children together, and she was his muse for his ever-changing works of art, but Picasso has more than one woman in his life during their relationship, including Dora Maar (Julianne Moore) and Marie-Thrse (Susannah Harker). Picasso was always an enigma wrapped in a conundrum, his relationship with women was strained, and he was an eccentric egomaniac. Even focusing on this short period in his life, it still doesn't scratch the surface of what made him tick. But, the film doesn't focus on his art as much as his relationships, and therein lies the problem. But, it's got good performances, and it looks absolutely beautiful, but it lacks substance and order.
