(es) wrote: Amateurish and unconvincing, this crew needs to watch Shallow Grave. Or maybe they did, but just couldn't replicate the internal stresses and friction as distrust turns to aggression and paranoia overturns loyalty when solidarity is required.
(br) wrote: Mermaids is a pretty good movie, i loved the family unit here and the characters, the more i've seen Winona Ryder the more i can't help but love her, there's just something about her. I love the setting and all of the cars and decor etc, that looks great. I loved how Mermaids portrayed the fickle interests of teens at times. Whilst it wasn't perfect Mermaids is worth a watch if you like a subtle family drama a little quirky, especially when the three here seem so natural.

(gb) wrote: "Memoirs of a Geisha" has some really beautiful cinematography and it's a well-made movie, even if it is a bit too melodramatic at times. This is a movie about a life that overall you would describe as pretty tragic and that's the biggest problem with the story. It's just one unhappy memory after another and it becomes exhausting. There are hardly any moments of joy so you don't get the emotional ups and downs you usually associate with epic romantic dramas. You get lows and lowers so eventually it stops surprising you when things go bad. Why would you expect anything to go right when beforehand every single event has been a disappointment or a heartbreak for our main character? It's in the nature of people to find joy in the little things and you can't possibly believe that every single day that our main character Chiyo (Zhang Ziyi) woke up to was always a downer so it feels very artificial.When it comes to the cinematography, sets and costumes, they are first rate. The movie really does feel like it was shot in early 20th century Japan down to the littlest details. It's also very interesting to see this niche of the world that you probably won't be very familiar with. Some of the details are surely exaggerated when it comes down to how everything went on but they feel mostly genuine, showing some of the glamour and some of the warts of the geisha industry. With the beautiful costumes, music and dances you do genuinely see why our main character wants to become a geisha and you can tell what the men see in that type of entertainment. There are some genuinely good dance numbers and although the whole costume thing might seem a bit alien at first, you'll get accustomed to it and you'll definitely see what the excitement is about. In the dramatic department the desire to be a geisha and the obstacles that are in Chiyo's way do work well and you want her to succeed because the excitement does rub off from the screen onto the audience. The movie is strongest in its opening and first half, when we get an underdog story with dreams being dashed, betrayals and scandalous revelations, all building up to a dream come true.One of the major things that hurt the movie is the characters. Most of them aren't very deep and when it comes to their personalities, the very first impression you get encompases everything you need to know bout their character. The best example is the antagonist Hatsumomo (Gong Li), a villainous senior geisha that from the beginning hates Chiyo for no apparent reason. Throughout the film there are opportunities to get to know her more, but every time she's on the screen it just cements the idea that there is nothing more to her than her irrational hatred of our heroine. Even when a tragic element is added to her story to show the doomed love that is certain to follow many geishas, you can't get past your previously established feelings about her because she's so nasty all of the time you never believe that anyone could fall for this woman. Some characters do get a bit more fleshed out, like Mameha (Michelle Yeoh), who helps Chiyo for reasons that are not simply heroic and does show some genuine character, particularly towards the end of the film. She really is the exception to the rule however and if you think the female characters are bad, every male character here is really thinly drawn.If you are looking for melodrama or a tragic love story this fulfills that role well and it's a great looking movie too with some decent performances. If you're looking for something that's a bit meatier you'll feel the flaws a lot more. It's not a terrible movie, the production alone makes it pretty fun to watch; but the film just doesn't quite go far enough with its characters, which could have overcome the plot that feels schmaltzy at times. The best time to watch "Memoirs of a Geisha" is when you really really just desperately want to see something sad, but lavish. There is an audience for the film and it isn't only women but for the story is a letdown compared to how great it all looks. (Dvd, April 9, 2013)
(es) wrote: Not another "Scary Movie". I had high hopes for this because I love the "Scary Movie", "Naked Gun" type movies, even the ones with less than stellar reviews so I assumed this would be the same. Boy, was I wrong. This has to be the worst movie of this genre I have ever seen. The jokes generally just fall flat and it doesn't help that the movie it tries to parody wasn't a good movie to begin with. Sad, just sad. Stay away.
