(es) wrote: Charming, goofy, fun.
(fr) wrote: Ludicrous, just how a juggalo likes it. It wasn't as bad as their album Shangri-La.
(de) wrote: Another bomb from Cartoon Network. They managed to do the impossible:to make Ryan Kelley completely ridiculous on screen wearing that green outfit. What the hell is Barry Corbin as Grandpa Max? Jesus Christ, Save us!
(jp) wrote: This was a frightening story. I can't believe that anyone would put themselves or their child through this insane process.
(fr) wrote: A foreign film - which I don't normally watch. The movie contrasted the fearful response of the wealthy to the gracious response of the teenage boy who is transformed by his relationship with the accused. Main message: when we get to really know others we are less likely to treat them poorly.

(jp) wrote: One of the worst films I've ever seen. Even the beautiful Italian scenery couldn't disguise the fact that this was awful. The acting was embarassingly poor: Maggie Smith didn't seem to believe her character and neither did I. One actor who does come out of this un-harmed is Timothy Spall, but really, Maggie? The story was 2 dimensional and ridiculous. The movie was crammed with clumpy dialogue - people telling other people what they were thinking, who they were and (in Maggie's case, repeatedly) where they'd been. The directing was clumsy and 'made-for-TV'; the art director had been given far too much rope, with which he very efficiently hanged himself, by colour-coordinating absolutely EVERYTHING. At best this is a decent little sales-brochure for a lovely part of the world - but I knew it was lovely anyway, without having to sit through this empty, sentimental tripe. But that's just my opinion.

(de) wrote: a legendary production about a legendary tv show. truely superb
(fr) wrote: Stir of Echoes is a spinetingler suspense / thriller with a crazy beginning that seemed simple enough, that set the precedent for the remainder of the film. The film becomes a murder mystery. But it all comes together in the end. The murder is questionable and very stupid, why did they do it? Was it worth it? Well, this is the wrong film to ask those questions, because that's not what this film is about. Comcast classifies this as a horror. In that aspect, this would be considered a lighter White Noise. Time to watch the sequel back-to-back, let's see how it goes compared to the original.
