The movies are the movies and the manga and the anime are their respective things too. Judging it on it's own it was a very well done movie and the animation style didn't really annoy me at all, after awhile it became very natural and I never thought about it again. A complaint I do have is that if you aren't already aware of the story of Berserk the flashback sequences aren't going to make the most sense. The fact that they got pretty much all the original voice cast back is also something I like very much and it is still quite amazing that they managed to do that. I just wish it was longer! I couldn't really think about reviewing it while I was watching it, it just felt like I was re-visiting and old friend and just enjoyed the experience. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to watching the other two and experiencing one of my favorite series in a new-ish light.

I mean the MPAA kind of proved their stupidity when they rated this movie. It's NC-17. I'm not making that up. It's unbelievable that this film would ever receive an NC-17. It proves the MPAA will try and block anything they don't like or find offensive. Watch this film. It's a must see.

(nl) wrote: This a movie very similar to "Scream" and many other slasher flicks out there. Its a pretty good one and its on pair with Scream or almost better actually in a way. There are many famous actors like Ryan Phillippe , Freddie Prinze Jr. and 2 lovely girls Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Definitely a must see movie for this genre / teen slasher but there are much better horror / scary flicks to be found these days..
(nl) wrote: This one is one the best films of all time. The film discusses autism. A subject till this very day, that sadly is still not very well known about especially with the time of autistic that the Rain Man is. The most notable thing about this film is that Dustin Hoffman completely nails the role perfectly down to a 'T'. In the history of film, this is one the few situations that the acting was so perfect. Tom Cruise also plays his selfish younger brother personally, having his own coming-of-age adult style storyline as he tries to cope with the realization that he had a brother, older one, who's autistic and a total savant at math. The film goes through an entire journey of trying to understand and build his relationship with his brother in a week and going from using him as a tool for money, to being someone he genuinely love and wants to take care of. The end of the film is a custody battle. The film has a sort of interesting theme song to it. This is one of the best films of all time, it may not be the greatest portrayal and understanding of autism, but given the limited amount of tools at the time, it's easily one of the best. It still stands out today.

(ag) wrote: In the same tone of Witchfinder General,Vincent Price plays an evil Witch Hunter and really relishes the role,shame the rest of the film is'nt up to his standards,its quite a dull horror film which is quite misleading as there is no banshee in it but a Werewolf,Price is terrific in it but the plot and shaky direction lets him down.
