(de) wrote: Maggie Gyllenhaal is one of the best actors working today. Next to her work, the preening self-consciousness of Meryl Streep is revealed as the joke it is. Maggie finds a character's elemental nature and presents it with such candor you swear you know this fictional person. Or could. Her world is genuine, every expression and movement true to everyday life. Too bad here that the story isn't just a bit better written. The script desperately needs a confrontation between Maggie and her sister-in-law, who needs to be much further developed given she's the enemy. Giancarlo Esposito -- you should know him as the Chicken Man meth master from Breaking Bad, puts in a powerful performance -- raw where Fring is tightly controlled, and there's no resolution. Oh well. Up there it says the movie is not entirely believable. That was written by an idiot who grew up in a suburb and had their ass kissed every day. This is a movie about life sucking, which it does. All the time.

(ru) wrote: Samuel Fuller once again takes on the Korean War (see also The Steel Helmet) in this hard hitting 1951 film. This is the story of an American army platoon left behind to protect a narrow mountain pass, buying time for their comrades to safely withdrawal. Fuller's style focuses on the inner turmoil of individual soldiers, emphasizing the toll that combat takes on reluctant heroes.

(au) wrote: Mike Mendez never acts on Big Ass Spider's many, many clichs we're suppose to call B humor. If overwhelmingly overused racial stereotypes--Mexicans are always less intelligent than everyone else and obviously only act as sidekicks--and a plot to the point of predictability that even a title like Big Ass Spider can't even resurrect the fun, here's one hour and twenty minutes you can spend on Netflix.

(ag) wrote: Okay, who's for an adventure on the high seas? Alright then, you've got me... an adventure at the Lake District. This film from 1974, based on the book by Arthur Ransome, follows the adventures of four children growing up in the 1920s who travel to the Lake District with their mother on hoilday and are allowed to sail to a nearby island in their boat, the Swallow, and set up camp. The four children find their newly discovered island is also the territory of two tomboys, the Amazons. After a brief "skirmish" and a night-time sailing race, the Swallows and the Amazons join forces to "declare war" on their foe, the "pirate" Captain Flint. This is a charmingly old fashioned. The children are very much in the tradition of The Railway Children and The Famous Five where children speak in Received Pronunciation, have adventures and make sure they're home in time for tea. Adults, on the main, take a back seat in this film and are split into three categories - the locals are known as "natives", Mother is known as a "stay at home" and villains and "Captain Flint", based on the evidence that he has a cannon on his boat and is grumpy for the majority of the film are known as "pirates". The acting by the children is solid, given the requirement of the script to basically be the stereotypes of early 20th century childrens books. Virginia McKenna plays Mother and is very little more than that. She helps the Swallows prepare for their adventures, visits one of them who looks after the camp whilst the rest of the children engage in their night-time race and delivering a telling off and motherly advice. Ronald Pickup has the more fun role of Captain Flint from being presented a grumpy "pirate", through a misunderstanding with both the Swallows and Amazons and, finally, as an overgrown child having a game of "war" with the children to capture his houseboat. The script is simplistic harking back to a more innocent time. It could be seen as bland in comparison with modern children's films, and is pretty much a script by the numbers. In addition to this, the pacing is slow going in the middle third through the night-race scenes. What rescues this film is the cinematography which makes full use of the Lake District's locations and the enthusiasm of the actors involved. Now, anyone up for cake and lashings of ginger pop? Spiffing!!!
(es) wrote: This movie makes me cry(happy tears) every time I see it! Truly, one of the most underrated movies ever! I LOVE the message and I LOVE the changes they made from the book. The underlying message from Lois Lowry's book was beautifully depicted in this film!
(nl) wrote: Exquisite demonstration of all power corrupting & all corruption being brutalizing. Authority gone unrestrained will inevitably devolve into cruelty for its own sake. Prisons & police should be run so completely opposite of how they're run that its excruciating to to contemplate the injustice that they are regularly the source of & the intractability of our commitment to the way they're run now. Makes clear why so many can't contain their hatred of cops & authority figures in general. Wanted to ring the lead researcher's neck throughout.
