(it) wrote: Bobby Fischer was not only a chess virtuoso but a symbol of being an alternative opponent to the Soviet superpower who virtually monopolized the game of chess till 1972. Amidst the nervous times of the Cold War, Bobby defeated Boris Spassky and showed the world the power of Individual Talent against Tradition. This exceptional documentary follows the phenomenon called Fischer through those years right up to his nemesis. The film has some previously unseen footage from Fischer's interviews and insights from people who had been very close to him. However like most geniuses, Bobby was cursed - dementia. His later years were marred by living in oblivion and his infamous ideas of anti-Semitism to the extent that when Vishwanathan Anand met his favorite player in Reykjavik, Fischer failed to create an impression on Anand, though Anand still thinks of him as the best player who ever lived. The film is an effort to understand the lone genius who "penetrated the secrets of chess in his shabby Brooklyn apartment". A well-edited piece, Bobby Fischer against the World is one of those films which leave you with the lingering feeling of pity and regret for a genius gone awry. The "Ballad of Bobby Fischer" at the end of the film is an added bonus and this film craftily etches the life of an individual who achieved one the greatest feats on his own - that of ending the monopoly of the Russians and showing the world that chess was not about Tradition but actually about individual talent and genius.

(ca) wrote: An ok, though slightly dull movie. Marvel's first misstep that has no surprises, and is hard to get thrilled by as we know the ending before the movie even starts and due to it's place in the timeline know it has no effect on the other Marvel movies.

It is about a middle-aged couple who start getting into the "swinger" lifestyle. The performances were excellent, and some of the lines were very funny indeed (delivery is key, I commend the actors). I was told by many people that the humour in the film was "very French", if that gives you any idea. It was beautifully shot as well. [/color] [color=#ffffff]My main issue was that I didn't understand the motivation behind a lot of what the characters did. It just seemed like they would suddenly do something out of nowhere, which was a bit annoying. It also dragged in places. [/color] [color=#ffffff]The Opinion: OK, but not particularly great. [/color]
(it) wrote: Entertaining, slight, and not nearly as explosive or significant as the last time its writer, director and actress made a film together. It's worth seeing, though, given the cockpunch of a depressing ending that you totally don't see coming.
(es) wrote: One of my guilty pleasures, a delightfully quirky film with a feel good ending.
(fr) wrote: Philip K. Dick's sci-fi stories are detailed, rich, and compelling. I can understand the urge to bring them to the big screen...but they don't always translate well. The Impostor is a decent attempt with Sinese and Stowe doing a great job with the material, but drags a bit too long and that hurts the overall ability of the movie to keep your interest.

(kr) wrote: Delmer Daves directed and adapted this David Goodis novel that was Bogie and Bacall's follow-up film to "The Big Sleep." That film had a terrific story and cast. This film has a terrific cast, but a rather unbelievable story about Bogie escaping from prison after being convicted of murdering his wife, getting plastic surgery and then teams up with Lauren Bacall to prove his innocence. Even if the story is rather silly, Daves directs the film with style and the leads are very appealing and are truly one of the great on-screen pairs.

(br) wrote: Black humor is refreshing coming from two murderous living puppets, even when the scares and fun are scarce.
(ru) wrote: The cinematography is excellent; that's the only positive thing I have to say about this film. The characters are dull at their best and irritating at worst. The score is overbearing. The underwater shots make me think of 'Jaws' and how much better that movie is. I ALMOST laughed, which should give you an idea of how funny I thought this horror-comedy was.
(de) wrote: This movie isn't easy to watch because of the realism and brutality in it but it's that and Christian Bale's incredible performance that makes Rescue Dawn a movie that can't be missed.
(nl) wrote: It's a'hangin' day in Wolf City, Wyoming, 1894 and they're gonna drop Cat Ballou through the gallows floor. Why you may ask? Well that's the story right there in this daft comedy western starring a jaw-droppingly beautiful Jane Fonda as the titular school teacher turned outlaw and an Oscar-winning Lee Marvin as both the legendary (and permenantly drunk) gunslinger Kid Shelleen and his evil nemesis Strawn. Wow, if they gave out Oscars for hammy overacting these days then Nic Cage and John Travolta would be swimming in them! Anyway, the zany comedy and carefree nature of the film make it a lot of fun to watch and there are some annoyingly catchy Nat King Cole/Stubby Kaye musical numbers to tap your toes along to. Kid Shelleen! Kid Shelleeeeeen! The fastest gun you've ever seeeeeen!
