(br) wrote: Though reviled upon its original release, The Entity is in hindsight quite interesting, especially for the way it doesn't wear it's based-on-a-true story claim on its sleeve. Seen here at the top of her game, the deeply beautiful Hershey especially goes the extra few yards for her agonized performance. A lengthy, sometimes painful film that manages to find a few shocks left unplucked by The Exorcist, turning the special effects from the usually-tame invisibility sub-genre to it's own nefarious ends. The movie can be slow at times, especially with today's movie savvy audience, but is always tense and genuinely creepy, as a true ghost/horror story should be. There are no blood and guts and the film is made all the better for this, by not taking away from the severity of the situation with gore used just to shock, which is done so much with today's horror. The special effects are limited but are enough to carry the story through. Thankfully this film doesn't look for too many answers, and leaves us undecided as it closes as to how bad of a film it really is. The answer: not that bad.VERDICT: "In The Zone" - [Mixed Reaction] These kinds of movies are usually movies that had some good things, but some bad things kept it from being amazing. This rating says buy an ex-rental or a cheap price of the DVD to own. If you consider cinema, ask for people's opinion on the film. (Films that are rated 2.5 or 3 stars)

And if you lose that someone, you think everything else is gonna stop too. But everything else just keeps on going. Giraudoux said, you can miss a single being, even though you are surrounded by countless others. Those people are like... like extras. They cloud your vision, they're a meaningless crowd. They... They're an unwelcome distraction. So you seek oblivion in solitude. But solitude only makes you wither."

(nl) wrote: Affleck gives a valiant effort but in the end Man About Town just doesn't have enough of anything to remain standing. The script never takes hold of any emotions and the comedy is never fully asserted. If you have nothing better to do give it a go but otherwise not a movie you will be upset about missing.

(ru) wrote: A very satisfying John Carpenter classic. This has to be one of the best adaptations from a Stephen King novel, it's well made, has a lot of likeable characters and the car itself must be the most famous car in horror history. The score is also memorable, which sounds like a crossover between the themes of "Halloween" and "The Exorcist", with also some elements of "Zombi", only to make a creepy theme. An overall very good film. Recommended !!
