Jason R (fr) wrote: Wow...Incredibly bad (fortunately it does verge on funny). It is kind of like watching an episode of Goosebumps combined with a Full Moon Entertainment movie except even Full Moon has better production values. It's the type of movie that should end with all the characters giving a high-five and Karate Kid "You're the Best" music kicking in. Some highlights of "badness" include 1) A Headless Horseman on a horse that is possilby the slowest horse ever 2) A Headless Horseman wearing one of those masks from Halloween III...not scary 3) Stacy Keach having a weird accent despite his character having grown up in the U. S. 4) A really boring hayride led by a kid who never took the time to read the short novel before giving it 5) A girlfriend who all the sudden shows up for no reason when the Headless Horseman starts slowly chasing people, the main character asks repeatedly "what are you doing here" but she gives no answer...because there is no answer.
Marc L (nl) wrote: D'un paradoxe venu de la Grce antique (en gros, Achille ne peut rattraper la tortue partie l'avance car il ne parcourt perpetuellement que la moitie de la distance que la tortue parcourt en parallle), l'impayable Takeshi Kitano tire une fable sur l'impossibilite d'atteindre un but. Peintre malchanceux, Machisu s'obstinera sa vie durant tenter de vivre de son art impersonnel, jusqu' tre devore par son obsession et perdre toute notion des priorites humaines. Subtilement dramatique par son enchainement d'evenements catalyseurs d'une telle deroute humaine, "Achille et la tortue" se transforme, sitt l'apparition de Beat Takeshi en Machisu d'ge mr, en un thetre de l'absurde grinant qui se double d'un pastiche de l'Art en tant que consideration "objective" abandonnee l'arbitraire de quelques personnes "bien-informees". A l'oppose des films de yakuza qui ont assis sa reputation, Takeshi Kitano livre une succulente facetie tragi-comique et, en partie du moins, autobiographique (il est lui-mme peintre).

Johnny M (es) wrote: I never knew the sound of a young rejected camel would be so beautiful and harrowing. A slow paced documentary which would have been brilliant if the sub titles hadn't been a bit dodgy, sometimes someone would say something and no words would show, which was annoying, and I'm not talking about when they were praying... I can see why they might not be able to subtitle that... and if it hadn't been quite so slow paced as well. Still, it gives you a great look into rural (I'm guessing it's rural anyway) Mongolian life, the culture, the people, the way they live, how their traditions have been uphold and the way their lives are changing, as well as a gorgeous young camel and his weary mother.If it doesn't sound like the kind of thing you could sit through then it probably isn't, but if you're interested in nature and different cultures then give it a go and it probably won't let you down. It's certainly got me a bit more interested in Mongolia, given me a new found admiration for camels. It does get better as it goes on, just in case your slightly put off by it's extremely slow moving open, believe me, when you see the solution to their camel problem in practice it's amazing.

Steve M (de) wrote: Emma Brody (Stowe), blinded by abuse as a child, has her vision restored through cornea transplants. But even before her eyes have fully healed and she's gotten used to seeing again, she becomes the only person to have seen a serial killer at the scene of one of his killings. "Blink" is a fairly run-of-the-mill crime thriller that infuses enough of originality in its "unreliable witness that really saw something and is being targeted" protaganist that it will draw you in. The film is also helped by Madeleine Stowe and Aidan Quinn giving strong performances. Quinn in particular is remarkable, as his character transforms from a jerk to a genuinely likeable guy as the film progresses. It's worth seeing if you're in the mood for a fairly light thriller and it's airing on television or avaiable for rent. It's not the sort of movie with replay value, so it wouldn't be worth owning (unless you got it really cheap). BlinkStarring: Madeleine Stowe, Aidan Quinn, James Remar, Peter Friedman and Bruce A. YoungDirector: Michael Apted

Jamie C (us) wrote: After reading so many positive reviews I was left wondering what it is that made people like it so much, After thinking about it, It must be the onscreen chemistry between Nick Nolte and starring in his first film Eddie Murphy, They worked great together but the rest of the film is pretty average, No real great action, Not much comedy to speak of, The story is nothing new, And it's predictable, It's not a bad movie but with all this praise I expected allot more.

Laurence S (ru) wrote: Unfortunately, the story line is not internally consistent. The murdered man is shown in a fist fight with the two young men, pulls a pistol on them, and then in the fighting, shots himself in the gut. the two young men recoil in horror. A fourth man appears, checks the dying man, and then shows a knife, stating the man had been murdered by being stabbed in the heart. In the courtroom scenes, ownership of the knife is never established, the bullet wound is never mentioned, and the man who found the knife only states he appeared on the scene as a result of hearing the shot. The courtroom scenes are certainly dramatic, with Henry Ford sussing his way through the evidence and the lies of the key witness, but it is so strange that the bullet wound is never discussed in the courtroom. Internally consistency of the script should certainly substract for the critics 100% ratings.
