Escaflowne: The Movie torrent reviews
(it) wrote: The story is slow and nothing really scary about the movie. And the movie just annoys me.
(kr) wrote: This was an ok movie, not great at all. It had a lot of potential but lost it in stupid looking aliens and some wierd scenes.
(ru) wrote: I had very low expectations based on the trailers and pre-release scenes so I was completely surprised at how well the film was made. It stayed true to the characters portrayed for the most part, but didn't let the facts ruin a good story or scene. It was well-acted, beautifully shot and edited with great symbolism and foreshadowing. It honored the lives of those involved, had a decent score and soundtrack AND most importantly it clearly presented the Gospel. I have no complaints - I can't say I'd do anything differently. Of course they played up Templeton to build conflict (what's a good story without conflict?) but believe it or not his story is pretty factual as well. You just can't make this stuff up sometimes. The filmmakers still left his fate pretty open ended which I appreciate. Some events or dialogue happened earlier or later or not at all - but hey that's film. I give it an A-.

(gb) wrote: Bruce Willis movies are a guilty pleasure of mine. But prejudice aside and being objective, this movie fell pretty flat on it's face. It had a great cast, but it just couldn't sort itself out. Not a bad summer-couch-2am movie, however.
(mx) wrote: While inaptly titled, "Children of a Lesser God" is a very clever, very moving romantic drama that uses its stellar leads to fascinating depths. Matlin definitely deserved her Oscar with her heartrending presence as a deaf woman who can only use her hands to convey emotion. Hurt and Matlin are so natural in their sign language that we are pulled in, even with Hurt echoing everything Matlin says. This is a real gem that I'm surprised I hadn't seen earlier. Definitely worth a watch.
(gb) wrote: I love love love short story frame works for movies. This anthology is so great! The first story is a typical urban legend story that makes you pacified in to contentment, then WHAM! Battle for Bishop starts fist pumping defiance, because you can't understand Emilio Esteves, and never will...until they make the Last Starfighter... then you can relate. The effects were straight out of my ol' Nintendo Virtual Boy (i'd love to play one again)... great ending!Then it gets better with Lance Henriksen who is becoming more esteemed in my eyes with every viewing... this time, he battles a demonic monster truck. However, as great as that is, his falling from grace woodland dream wins the race.And, what is a movie with out me crying... and I did for my dear sweet large rodent. The family of actors in this piece I want to take home (even it the dad is kinda mean). The mouse effects and a little girl yelling "Don't hurt her, she just wants her baby back!" has been haunting me for days!

(kr) wrote: The second of three adaptations of Fritz Leiber Jr.'s novel "Conjure Wife", this film is far and away the best of the bunch. It's a shamefully unknown horror gem that still packs quite a wallop thanks to committed performances, genuine suspense, a chilling atmosphere, tight direction, and a frighteningly realistic storyline - no campy or over-the-top horror fodder here, this film deals seriously with the issue of witchcraft and the danger it can pose with those that meddle with it. A really good horror classic that is marred only by an ending that seems forced and out of tone with the rest of the film's subtleness. Highly recommended if you can find a copy!
