Ryan M (ca) wrote: Very funny for an independent comedy. Great dialogue, breaks the boundaries of crude early on and maintains an edge throughout. Probably most enjoyed by dudes. Only downside is the cookie-cutter plot resolution.

Al M (ag) wrote: The Corridor feels like a Stephent King set-up--It and Dreamcatcher both spring to mind: a group of old male friends gather in snowy cabin to forestall the onset of middle age. Haunted by traumas from their past and looming responsibilities, the group discovers a bizarre singularity in the woods. Ultimately, the Corridor's set-up fails to pay off. The film admirably spends time on character development, but the drama ultimately overtakes the horror in a way that is fundamentally unsatisfying.

Brandon H (gb) wrote: Another not the best film. You have your katana wielding hunter, some flesh eating humans, and some survivors. who comes up with these story lines. Not a very good movie.

Jennifer J (ag) wrote: Watched it in fastforward, and only because Mira was in it.

Angie L (nl) wrote: It's an ugly and boring film. The fil tried to show the disadvantages of being a public star but it was badly made.

Fredrika L (jp) wrote: I really wanted to see it because Jennifer Love Hewitt was going to be in it, but... it wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

Jan S (au) wrote: Loved Kathleen Turner's gam's.

Lanky Man P (de) wrote: A solid example of a late 80s / early 90s horror.

Iris P (au) wrote: As others have mentioned, this film is historically important. I loved the opportunity to glimpse life within the GDR in general. It was also illuminating to gain a bit of insight into the perceptions of the GDR filmmakers regarding the challenges of being gay in communist Germany. I would not recommend this film for entertainment purposes...

Paul D (de) wrote: The fast paced plot keeps this Scott film fairly interesting, although in terms of the western genre it is rather ordinary.

Mick S (de) wrote: This could be "King Kong from Space". A monster from Venus ends up on the rampage in Rome. Its really quite a docile creature, early on it has a fight with a lamb (yes a lamb) and loses. The only thing that seems to get it riled is getting prodded and poked, so you would think that people would learn - don't poke it, but nobody seems to listen. Don't go out of your way to watch this, but worth a view if its on the telly or something.

sabrina i (es) wrote: A highly entertaining Howard Hawks film...there's action, adventure, romance and of course Cary Grant ;) It's all about the characters and their interactions with one another. I found the love story in particular very endearing, Cary Grant and Jean Arthur make a good couple. The story is just about OK, I felt like there really wasn't much of a story..the film centered around a group of characters. I think the film was meant to be a slice of adventure and I wasn't expecting it to be as serious as it was, not a bad thing just didn't expect that though we do get some great one liners that made me laugh quite a bit. I liked Cary Grant playing a something slightly different character from his usual suave, charming characters. Here, he plays a man completely consumed by his work and death that surrounds him and the other pilots. He doesn't believe in love anymore and doesn't want a woman waiting for him while he's up there in danger, it gives the film a good tension that we see between his character and Jean Arthur, who btw is absolutely wonderful in this film. She's amazing in all her films though, so natural and she had the most unique way of expressing emotions. Another highlight of the film were the aerial sequences which were very impressive and thrilling to watch. Overall, a fun, atmospheric adventure of a film that I would love to revisit.
