Men in White
A comedy about ghosts trying to survive in a modern country like Singapore should be fun, right? Well, Kelvin Tong's horror-comedy-musical Men In White (Gui Ah Gui Ah) is so to a certain extent, but to tell you the real truth, I really don't know what to make of it. Men In White follows the exploits of a group of spirits who share an apartment. They are a hip-hop duo, a badminton champ, a young girl, an elderly lady, a crazy gangster, and a videographer whom we don't see until the very end, who is also the guy filming everything we see.

(ag) wrote: A supernatural lesson in Spanish history. Well acted and conceived - reminiscent of recent Spanish suspense films such as Pan's Labyrinth and The Orphange. This was executed with certain flair (with the use of narrative fractures which gives another layer of intrigue though the end 'twist' isnt that surprising if you ask me) and a pretty solid debut for the director. Some minor illogical points might irritate some but on the whole the film carries itself admirably throughout. and is totally engrossing and engaging.
(gb) wrote: Made for TV Canadian film, that adds a fun, fantastical twist to the classic "Robin Hood" story. There's a brief prologue, which serves to explain why he become the "Robin Hood" we all know. Once we pick back up, a few years later, he's already him, so unlike a lot of the other versions, we skip the becoming, and get straight to the point. Yes, Richard is still off on the crusades, and Nottingham and Prince John are still bastards, but what separates this one from others, magic. Lots of it. From shapeshifting to spell casting, this movie has fun playing up these elements, ones not really seen in this story before. The flying effects look really bad though, which is sad. The dragon never seem to be in the same space as the sky, and/ or the object it's hurling/ being thrown at him. The designs are solid though, and they move fluidly. On ground the dragon does look very good, with a nice amount of detail. Robin Dunne, as Robin Hood, is very good. I find him to be a surprisingly strong actor, even in weak films; see his excellent job in The Skulls 2 to how good he truly can be. Here, he fires an arrow quite well, and makes for a solid leader, which is all that was necessary. Erica Durance as Marian has some really fun bits, and looks good doing it. Katherine Isabelle, most notable for being Ginger the brilliant "Ginger Snaps" trilogy plays Alina, the were-dragon at the heart of the story. She's good, as always, but doesn't have much to do. Sidenote- any time her name is attached to a project, it immediately becomes 110% more awesome. The rest of the cast all do decent jobs, with no standouts though. The sets look pretty good, and the landscape evokes the time period very well. The lighting shifts between good and over/under exposed at times, but it doesn't distract for long.

Schmidt, Meagen Fay, Audrey Wasilewski, Michael Des Barres, Christine Estabrook Director: Bart Freundlich Summary: Three specialists in their fields -- a rock climber, a computer genius and a mechanical wiz -- take on the nearly impossible task of robbing one of the world's most impenetrable banks in order to save an ailing father. Their plan is foolproof, their methods are ingenious ... and they're not even old enough to drive! My Thoughts: "The movie is more of a kids film, obviously considering it is a kids film. But it's OK for us adults too. It is sweet to see a daughter go through such extremes for her father. But it's not very realistic. But not much is in kid films. The then kids, Kristen Stewart, Corbin Bleu, and Max Thieriot did a great job in the movie. But I think the kids will enjoy this much more then us adults."

(kr) wrote: I enjoyed this film from master animator Hayao Miyazaki, but I wouldn't consider it one of his best, not even top 5. The animation is solid, story interesting, and voicework solid, but i just didn't fully connect with it and I had some pacing issues with it. I did particularly enjoy the voicework of Michael Keaton and Cary Elwes though. Worth checking out.
(fr) wrote: Many American action thrillers suffer from the "1/3 syndrome": the first 2/3 of the movie are enjoyable, but the writers could not properly resolve all the rising action and blunder their way through the final third. Deja Vu is no exception to the rule. It's worth the watch on pizza night with friends or family; overall, Denzel redeems what would have been a mostly unknown sci-fi thriller and its resolution has too many holes for the serious movie-goer.
(kr) wrote: Great performances all the way around. David Tennant did an amazing job as Hamlet and Patrick Stewart again showed how great an actor he really is. The Bard would be proud.
(jp) wrote: A tedious and hesitant film that is no doubt inspired from the neo-realism practiced at the time by Italian filmmakers Vittorio de Sica and Roberto Rossellini. Akira Kurosawa??s pleading piece, after the destruction of Japan left its citizens with a bleak outlook, aspires to lift up their distraught demeanors with a romantic, lighthearted comedy of sorts. It fails in successfully balancing the sometimes depressing qualities with the elated realizations that the couple, Yuzo and Masako, each experience separately but oftentimes together. By the picture??s midpoint, the switches have become redundant even if their presence is meant to show the suffering world that imposes on the protagonists throughout. There is one brilliant sequence, though, when Yuzo attempts to lift Masako??s spirits by acting out an orchestra in full swing as its conductor. When a breeze begins to howl and reminds him of the outside world he becomes discouraged, bringing Yuzo to the stage in an attempt to plead with the audience to encourage him into performance. The imaginary audience is those watching the film as she speaks directly into the camera in full close-up, breaking the fourth wall in a shocking, out of context manner. It is a brilliant climax that almost, entirely makes up for the inadequate parts before it.
(ru) wrote: I enjoyed this early film from Alfred Hitchcock, though it is flawed. Hitchcock himself thought it was flawed so remade it some 20yrs later with James Stewart and Doris Day. I did like Peter Lorre in this film, he made an exceptional bad guy. Also, with this film, Hitchcock was really beginning to develop and push his style which could be glimpsed in films like "The Lodger" and "Blackmail". Not the best Hitchcock film, but definitely worth watching for Hitchcock fans or any lover of classic cinema.

(ag) wrote: While it doesn't ever stray very far from the tired rom-com formula, She's Out of My League does provide consistent laughs and charming comic performances from the cast with a few poignant moments of insight sprinkled in, resulting in a guilty pleasure, albeit derivative, hard R comedy.
