(au) wrote: Beautiful movie, especially for the ones with gifts!
(it) wrote: It tried too hard to be like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wrong Turn on an obviously low budget. These are some of the most annoying characters I have ever seen.
(us) wrote: I'm torn between thinking this is lovely and sweet, and thinking it's about the guy who got lucky by being in a band that captured lightning in a bottle for a few years, while not being particularly talented, then got drunk for a decade, then became a Mormon. I'm not sure, which is probably a good thing for a documentary, but I think I'll aim for sweet. Well worth a watch if you ever heard any New York Dolls growing up.
(mx) wrote: Moral quandary. Is his decision right?Psychological dependencies. and everyone is a little "off" here in an interesting enough way. "he lives inside of his own heart. That's an awful big place to live in."
(br) wrote: I liked how the first two are essentially identical except for sexual orientation, and then the third plays out almost completely differently (though I thought when it began it was going to be an entirely new story and was disappointed when the familiar lines started being spoken). Although I get the feeling that this setup-consolidation-punchline structure was not intentional, I found it interesting nonetheless.
(fr) wrote: Excelling tribute to memories and...fading desire.A great t.v. movie and the first one after Bergman's official retirement with Fanny och Alexander.The name Vogler is not a surprise to Bergman fans,moreover the story itself looks as if it's a race for the elderly theater director's life,closing accounts before his imminent (?) death.
(kr) wrote: Yeah, it's riddled with Hollywood sentimentality, but I can't help but love this one.
(kr) wrote: It is a welcome surprise to see a lighthearted Western that places its importance more on the characters than on the famous real gunfight depicted - and the deep-focus shots are beautiful -, but still the film has trouble with maintaining the focus and pacing in the second act.
(br) wrote: My reason for watching it disappeared halfway through, and therafter it quickly became a chore. Needed more humour, more colour (it may as well have been in black and white, given the monochrome look) and more zazz in the action scenes. Maybe they should have set it in the '70s or something - not a skivvy in sight.
(fr) wrote: Easily one of the biggest letdowns for me. I'm not a chess player but the trailer made me want to see this film badly. I was really into the story which doesn't happen often because I am not a big Tobey McGuire fan. I was sucked into his life of wanting to become world champion and defeat the Russians. I also really liked Peter Sarsgaard's character as well as Liev Schreiber's. It has this huge buildup to the faceoff, and then it just tapers off and avalanches to the finish line. It rushes so much through the actual match they had. I wanted so much more. I wouldn't have cared if this was 2 1/2 hours, I wanted to see the match and see Fischer win the title. But instead they sprint to the end and finish it with a slideshow of what happened after he won the world title. Bad writing and the direction takes a hit as well with that. Major, major letdown, but still a decent watch up until the ending. Not enough to kill my score, but this could have been WAY higher.
