(mx) wrote: In what could have and should have been Glen Close's best opportunity to win Best Actress back in 2011, Albert Nobbs focuses on a hotel and one of the lead butlers who has lived all of her life as a male, and what that life meant for him/her. Shot somewhat bleakly albeit in keeping with the time, Nobbs is an interesting project since it focuses on a still very relevant issue today in ones sexual identity in what was a very repressed time that has a lot of trouble expressing said issues in such a closed environment which Close plays up beautifully restrained and with a touch of naivete. The banter and connection between her and Mcteer is wonderful as Close is inspired by Mcteers character to live more proudly and pursue her ambitions. A bummer ending with the relationship with Helen going riddiculously south probably sank some of the award hopes for the picture picking up more hardware at awards season (although in retrospect a lot of the material was pretty bleak), this should be the film that a lot of up and coming actors should be instructed to watch for Close's masterful performance, not the eventual winner Streep for the Iron Lady.

There are some moments of genuine tension, and the acting is subtle, but it leaves me wondering why someone would want to make this movie, and why this movie matters at all. It's a mixed bag, so take your chances I guess.

By the end, I fell in love with all the characters. It is a very girly movie and I recommend it to any woman who is feeling down on her luck.
(br) wrote: basically this is Mortal Kombat (superb fight scenes) but without the sci-fi and supernatural elements and a LOT more boobs. Who cares about plot? Let's just cram in a ton of awesome fighting with some rockin' music. Good stuff if you are into that sort of thing which I personally am.Surprisingly good cinematography too.

Could have been great, but the action scenes were way too over the top and too much of Woo's style to be taken as a serious movie. In essence, this is more about glorifying the killing and making it stylish than actually telling the story the movie is even about. A disgrace to the people involved in the true story. This is an interesting part of history that was butchered by Hollywood and deserves so much more.

(fr) wrote: An underrated fantasy with such absolute darkness and misery. It is as bleak as fantasy gets and still remains the best Dragon movie ever made. The story is more about the end of an era, than anything else: the last dragon and the last sorcerer. Magic is being replaced by religion. (The Emperor from Return of the Jedi gets a supporting role as a Holy man). The special effects also hold up surprisingly well, thanks to legendary FX wizards Tippet and Muren who both worked on Star Wars. Director Robbins was apparently a friend of Spielberg and that's how he got the job to write and direct. However, the film turned out much darker than was anticipated (after all, he was inspired by Alien and Jaws). He wanted to make the dragon terrifying. Disney was not pleased and the film had a rocky reception. Today though, it is widely respected among fantasy fans (Del Toro is a major believer) and in our day and age of overblown CGI, the animatronics and stop-motion FX look surprisingly real. Personally, I'd take this dragon over The Hobbit's Smaug any day. The only compromise the film made is in its Mark Hamil-like star who is miscast. Thankfully though, it has a couple strong female parts that overshadow the hero. Not to mention, Alex North's final epic score (which he partly pilfered from the unused 2001: A Space Odyssey score).

Most of the Indians have left the plains and settled on reservations; however, some tribes have decided reservation life is not for them. When they start killing settlers, the US government and non-hostile Indians both seek a peaceful resolution. President Grant sends John McKay to negotiate with the upset Indians, the non-violent Indians, and the local plainsman. "At least they didn't shoot." "Maybe the shooting comes next." Delmer Daves, director of 3:10 to Yuma, The Hanging Tree, A Summer Place, Broken Arrow (1950), Dark Passage, and Never Let me Go, delivers Drum Beat. The storyline for this picture is fairly standard for the genre but delivers excellent characters and a remarkable script. I loved the performances in this picture, specifically, the performance delivered by Charles Bronson. "I surely ain't going without a gun in my britches." We continue to DVR Charles Bronson pictures and I always find him entertaining and uniquely funny. He plays the antagonist that is both ruthless and unforgiving but he also has a sense of entitlement and humor. If you are a fan of westerns and this era of acting, you should give this picture a shot. "You're a tyrant. All take and no give." Grade: B

A brutally and violently satisfying endeavor that will send shivers down your spine. Prepare to get jacked and amped up as The Condemned will fuel your pulse and get the adrenal glands pumping an overload of adrenaline through your body. An action packed frenzy, an all out piece of insanity, a glorified survival story that kept me glued to the screen for the entire runtime. Director Scott Wiper teams up with WWE films to bring us this pure shot of 100% cinematic adrenaline. The acting was irritating, but I wasn't in this one for the acting and neither were you. Featuring action packed performances from WWW superstar Steve Austin and Robert Mammone.
