(ag) wrote: It's one of those movies that you like, but don't really love though it's interesting to take a look inside sex addiction. Tim Robbins and Mark Ruffalo are good in just about anything, and Gwyneth Paltrow has still got it going on for being in her 40's. Josh Gad is like a poor man's Jonah Hill but he provides the laughs. Beyond that it's not really a comedy. Pink is actually a pretty decent actress believe it or not.

Written and directed by a Jordanian and submitted for Foreign Film at the Oscars aside from being nominated for 27 international movie awards. Loved the scenes in hilly Amman (which were partly filmed in rustic As-Salt) and the inspiring music of Austin Wintory. Found myself exclaiming ''I was at the same spot in Queen Alia Airport!", "I was in a similar bus/cab and on that road!" Anyway...! Abu Raed is an avid reader, leading a humble existence; and having gone through grief, puts it aside and rises to the unexpected role of storyteller to awe-inspired neigbourhood kids who mistake him for an airline pilot. While pretty Rana is a real pilot on Royal Jordanian - classy and dignified and epitomizing the modern Jordanian woman perfectly. Each character faces struggles - as their lives cross, they open up and share. There is an abusive husband thrown in, and his hardened cynical son Murad eventually becomes a central part of the storyline. We also get to see poverty, modern pressures, dignity, pain and eventually sacrifice. "He who chooses the humble life has guidance in his heart''...

(au) wrote: I didn't realise this was a sequel movie when I bought it and it doesn't particularly feel like one. I mean, the first three or so minutes are just shots of an adorable, ginger kitten. The kitten is pretty much the first meal of the blob but you'd have to expect that. Beware! THE BLOB has pretty much everything you'd want from the seventies, a man who was a tent inside his house, hippies, asshat hippies that steal gas and unhelpful lawmen. Nobody even knew what the fuck the blob was, which was mildly entertaining. If you want to see how horror started it's slow steps towards being a sexdeathfest, then this may at least explain a few things.

(de) wrote: Terry Zwigoff's adaptation of Daniel Clowes graphic novel is inspired, painfully realistic while also pulling us into a surreal existential realization. It is impossible to understand how Thora Birch failed to become a major actor and Scarlett Johansson did. Johansson is clearly a talented actor, but there is always a vaguely passive doe-eye'd boredom conveyed in almost every role she plays. Here this is a perfect match for Birch's rebellious and inappropriate character.There is an ever-present cruelty hiding within Enid. It is never clearly explored, but seems to be tied to her childhood. It doesn't really matter. It is to Birch's credit that we can actually relate to her and her often bad choices. Steve Buscemi is an amazingly unique and effective film actor. I don't think I've ever seen an actress who manages to create a chemistry with him as effective as in this movie. As Enid burns her bridges and stubbornly holds true to her identity be it for better or worse, Thora Birch is able to build her character so well that we follow her. We may not totally understand her choices. But as the film comes to its close, her logic takes on a sad reality. There is a great deal more going on in the haunting film than first appears. This is an entertaining, magical and surprisingly dark film. A Must See.
