(au) wrote: missed hitting on a few key elements. like the health effects of g.m.o.s.
(it) wrote: 2.5 - This one is actually a sequel to Paranormal Activity (rather than a prequel), and it transports the demonic haunting to Tokyo, Japan. It's almost a no-brainer that this would be attempted in Japan, since the original film had many elements in common with the best of early 2000s J-horror. Unfortunately for Tokyo Night, it fails to hold up tension in any way nearly as effectively as the original did. In fact, some of the few scenes that are actually creepy, stand amid others that are either clumsy, or so understated they have no effect. Poor pacing, so-so "natural" acting, and the fact that Japanese houses are not nearly as cavernous as American ones means this ghost's repertoire is rather limited from the outset.
(gb) wrote: This is an awesome movie that people should not miss. Woody Harrelson puts in an amazing performance as a mentally ill person that believes he is a Super Hero. Kat Dennings also does a great job. Heartwarming and at times sad story
(br) wrote: When I watched it all I could think of was: "when is it going to end?", "what is the purpose of this?". I couldn't enjoy it at all. The main character had no development, very depressing.
(ag) wrote: Very cute and quirky revenge comedy with a lovely performance from Danny Boon
(au) wrote: Pretty interesting sub-stories, european realist, a bit prolonged, yet a good film.
(fr) wrote: Dreamy Tom Cavanagh plays a Toronto sports TV anchor who's in the closet ... way, way, way in the closet. He lives with his saintly lawyer boyfriend played by Ben Shenkman of ANGELS IN AMERICA fame. Through a slightly awkward plot line, the couple end up caring for an orphaned kid named Scot. Scot is a walking stereotype for all things gay and effeminate. He only likes musicals, wears his (dead) mother's makeup and starts re-decorating the guy's house right after he moves in. The film quickly focuses on Scot and closeted Eric (played by Cavanagh) who reluctantly becomes a father figure for the swishest kid ever to wave a feather boa in the face of a footballer. Eric is a former hockey player so, it's assumed, he's spent his life suppressing his sexuality and being as butch as possible. Poor Eric has never heard of Bob Paris or Greg Louganis or any of the busloads of gay athletes who, yes, don't throw like a girl. Eric attempts to butch up Scot "for his own self-preservation" and mild humor and drama ensues. The only thing weird about this is Shenkman's and Cavanagh's G-rated performance. When last we saw him, Shenkman was taking Patrick Wilson's jeans off with his teeth in ANGELS IN AMERICA. In this film, the only slightly intimate scenes between Eric and Sam is when one ruffles the other's hair. Apparently hair ruffling is what now passes for acceptable man-on-man action on the Disney Channel. Dear GLAAD, is this really progress?

(fr) wrote: 74/100. The archive footage in this doesn't have the fascination of "Before Stonewall", but this is a better documentary duo to more interesting interviews and it is more touching as well. Well made and thought provoking.
(br) wrote: I thought that about the first half of this movie was passable, followed by terrible middle section and an end that did not quite redeem itself, but still brought some of the joy back to the viewer. The most wonderful part of the film, of course, is hearing the many amazing virtuoso players taking their turn upon the red violin. Here to naked, pasty skinned redheaded males with mullets and bad sideburns.

(mx) wrote: Playtime (1967) - 8The wholly artificial environment of modern cities is an obstacle to natural social construct among people, it gives rise to alienation and strange behavioral patterns. The urban lifestyle is akin to life in a giant carousel or machinery, in a way, dehumanizing. So seems to suggest the comic choreography conceived by Jacques Tati. Subtle choreography, but complex and powerful. In "Playtime", the singular cinematic language crafted by the French filmmaker departs from narrative conventions, this is fancy Cinema that relies heavily on technical rigor and prowess to make its point come across. Ironically or not, "Playtime" seems to be a cinematic product of the same dehumanizing and alienating phenomena that the film itself seems to mock about in human relations. A particularly eloquent proposal from such perspective, the notion of plot is very faint and the distance between the viewer and the human subjects within the film is so large that I almost feel like I'm watching a laboratory experiment where the effects of modern technology and architecture on human relations are dissected. But, on the other hand, it could be said that "Playtime" is going back to its roots, at times it is very reminiscent of Silent Cinema and it even brought me faint memories of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. It's a truly unique cinematic experience. The humorous pathos created by the numerous bizarre or absurd situations being represented is, possibly, the only narrative anchor that denounces the humanly persuasive premiss of this singular work. What's most impressive for me is the effortless way how this film immerses me in the cinematic experience despite being so unconventional. The aesthetical appeal fascinates me and the cinematography is beautiful. I haven't seen "Playtime" in a long time, but it maintains the same vitality in the way it intrigues, entertains and amuses me just like years ago when I first met this film. Jacques Tati deliberated the construction of a small futuristic city scenery just to shoot this work. Such ambition cost him dearly in his life, but the final product brought him deserved immortality. "Playtime" is a mandatory watch for any cinephile!
(nl) wrote: A reckless playboy has to use the town's only life support machine and as a result causes the death of an elderly doctor. In his clumsy attempt to an apology, he causes another accident that leaves the doctor's daughter completely blind. Sirk's drama is a deeply compelling film with hard hitting turns of events, and a genuinely harrowing look at both family values and personal values. Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman are just wonderful.
(mx) wrote: lotsa good acting and cool jazz music in this.
(mx) wrote: This story was quite captivating. What would happen in two separate lives to bring the seemingly soul-mate pair back together? The vast signals that each person experienced after this brief encounter kept both of them thinking about each other despite relationship statuses etc. Good performances from entire cast.
(nl) wrote: Very intense John Huston flick. Bogart, Bacall and Robinson performances are as classic as the actors themselves. These are the stereotypical roles they are known and loved for. Despite taking place almost entirely in a couple of rooms, the suspense and tension never let up, and you are held at attention until the very end.
