Terry D (nl) wrote: Quite simply, this is the "Schindler's List" for one of the darkest episodes in Chinese-Japanese history, the Rape of Nanking, which took place over the course of six ugly weeks spanning 1937 and '38. Brutal and relentless, this is not an easy film to watch to be sure, but at the same time it's pretty much a perfect film in every way. R.I.P. to the roughly 300,000 souls who perished in this monstrous massacre.
Dann M (ru) wrote: Starship Troopers 3: Marauder is a return to the B-movie camp of the original, but the talent's not there to pull it off. The Bug War continues as Col. Johnny Rico is charged with a top secret mission to save a stranded crew that's stuck on a bug world. Casper Van Dien returns and is joined by Jolene Blalock, but their performances are uneven and aren't able to pull off the same cheesiness that made the original so fun. Additionally, the special effects are atrociously bad and drag the whole film down. While nothing is done particularly well in Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, it's still able to provide some interesting satire that's mildly entertaining at times.
Paul B (ag) wrote: I had zero expectations going into this film, and they were adequately rewarded. "Cthulhu" is a hodgepodge of thematic material taken from the horror fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, mixing up elements of his Dagon and Cthulhu mythos, slathered over apocalyptic visions of The End of Civilization As We Know It. It's a standard Gothic horror formula, one which Lovecraft himself employed from time to time: prodigal son returns to cursed ancestral home, eventually to learn that he's predestined to become Master of the whole kit & caboodle. The spin here is that he's gay, which was the wedge issue that originally drove him from his family... which was a good thing for him. Now he's back, and the predictable dramatics resume. The thing about this mini-budget, no-name-starring, borderline amateur film is that... IT WORKS. Or, it works pretty well, most of the time. There's no exact HPL story that it's adhering to, although his "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" is the most obvious inspiration. Instead, Lovecraft's mythology is cherry-picked by the filmmakers to give this contemporary story from depth; a glimpse of that almost-beyond-our-ken cosmic horror that The Gentleman from Providence was so able to conjure. "Cthulhu"'s cinematography goes a long way in this regard, filling the screen with chilly visions of fog-enshrouded seashores and sullen, lowering skies -- making the Pacific Northwest are more-than-adequate substitute for Lovecraft's brooding New England locales. This is one of the best looking low-budget-shot-on-video movies I've seen in a long time, and should be an huge inspiration to aspiring horror filmmakers. For some strange reason, the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, and his Cthulhu Mythos, is largely neglected by mainstream Hollywood, and remains the domain of the amateur and fan filmmaker. The 2005 black & white silent film "The Call of Cthulhu," by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society, remains the exemplar of this particular subgenre, but "Cthulhu", made in 2007, is a pretty reasonable example of the state of the art.

Give me a movie about ships ... especially sailing ships ... and I'm there. So I'm already set up to love this one, given how well cast this is and the craftsmanship that went into it, it's 2 1/2 hour run time just flies by for me.
Gaspar O (gb) wrote: Despite the fact that a seasoned FBI agent needs his pre-pubescent son to do his investigating for him, and that parts of this seem more like a high school class project than a professional film, this movie is creepy and interesting enough to be enjoyed. Sometimes, gore > shine. Extra half star for a baby elephant and two adorable orangutans! Thanks Joe, for suggesting this one.
Matt R (jp) wrote: This was weird, with a meandering plot and oddball characters. It teases the viewer with the idea that the dude has stumbled upon some kind of Addams family, but then it reins things in and they appear somewhat normal. There was a metric ton of pointless dialogue that "builds" to an unsatisfying "conclusion," if that's what you want to call it. What makes the least amount of sense, however, is why "Mikey" sticks around when his girlfriend ends up jerking him around every other scene.
Michael W (it) wrote: Shameless ripoff of E.T. has a wheelchair-bound boy befriending a stranded alien. The intentions of the film are admirable, with some of the profits going to benefit Ronald McDonald charities, but countless corporate placements for products such as Coca-Cola, Skittles and Sears undermines its credibility. Most memorable is extended scene at a McDonald's restaurant, where Ronald McDonald (laughably billed as himself) earned a Raspberry Award as Worst New Star.

Heart-wrenching and gutsy, it is brave and thought - stirring war drama based on a true story that will leave you breathless. Realistic, poignant, smart and very intense. A MUST SEE
Zarinah H (mx) wrote: If you're a fan of Neil Simon's then "Brighton Beach Memoirs"(1986) is a must-see. This is a well-made movie with an amazing ensemble cast and witty dialogue that had me laughing out loud. Eugene (Jonathan Silverman), a Jewish teenager, narrates the story of his time as an adolescent, growing up amidst a close-knit Jewish family in 1930s Brooklyn, comprising dad, Jack (Bob Dishy), mom Kate (Blythe Danner), brother Stanley (Brian Dillinger), widowed aunt Blanche (Judith Ivey), and cousins Nora (Lisa Waltz) and Laurie (Stacey Glick). Eugene's dad is a hardworking man who tries to manage the family on his meager income, supplemented by the wages of his older son Stanley who works for a haberdasher/slave driver Mr. Stroheim (Steven Hill). The performances of the ensemble cast, especially the comical antics of the lead performer (Silverman) coupled with the creative dialogue make this an immensely entertaining watch. I loved the way family dynamics were explored in this movie - how Eugene feels like he is being victimized and bullied (being constantly sent to the store by his mother complaining,"I'm always going to the store. When I grow up, that's all I'll be trained to do, go to the store"), how the role of males and females were still very traditional (the women stayed home, whilst the men went out to work), and the close bond between members of this family (Eugene's mom takes in her widowed sister and two daughters even though Jack is a low wage-earner).The most comical aspects are scenes where the adolescent with raging hormones, as portrayed by Eugene, fantasizes about girls and sex. Upon glimpsing his first picture of a naked woman (a French woman at that), Eugene exults: "I have seen the Golden Palace Of The Himalayas. Puberty is OVER! Onward and upward!" Balanced against these comic moments are more somber ones such as when Eugene's 16-year-old cousin Nora decides to forge her own path in life or when Eugene's older brother Stanley has to deal with the repercussions of wrong choices. With its cast of eccentric characters, the irreverent writing and amazing acting, this is a heartwarming, funny and poignant movie. A must-watch!
