Tonya V (us) wrote: I am not sure what I thought of this one?! Some was almost funny but mostly it was just a bit too over the top.

Thomas B (gb) wrote: ****It's a bit slow at times, but Valkyrie is an excellent suspense thriller from Bryan Singer, beautifully shot and supporting a great performance by Tom Cruise.

Jason R (mx) wrote: Slow to start, but a powerful finish. Incredible storytelling, subtle direction, and absorbing acting, easy choice if you're in the mood for Artistic+Foreign.Looking forward to watching Volver...

Phil H (jp) wrote: Gekitotsu! Satsujin KenSonny Chiba was pretty much one of the first actors to become a star utilizing his skills in martial arts (in Japan), slightly more chunky or well built than Bruce Lee with a rounder face and thick eyebrows.Released a few years after some of Lee's hit films Street Fighter is very similar in terms of looks, feel and costumes plus the way Chiba composes himself, his stances and poses during fights. The main difference being Chiba is playing a kind of mercenary for hire who isn't really all that nice instead of an outright hero, he's almost an antihero of sorts.At the time this film was regarded as highly graphic and violent but of course these days its more amusing, there is some in your face bloody moments but the blood is way too fake looking to concern. Violence is fun and almost comicbook-like with the odd idea having been seen more recently in other fight films and videogames (MK), the testicle ripping scene has to be the most memorable. Classic stuff and more gritty than Bruce Lee but with maybe less refined quality, Chiba comes across as more animalistic in battle, some lovely looking ladies in there too.

Vadim D (it) wrote: There is a reason why this film isn't as beloved as Mary Poppins, Sound of Music, or even Bedknobs and Broomsticks - and it's just not that good. The songs are not memorable and neither is the story.

Augustine H (ag) wrote: The screwball comedy finally has some gags which can laugh my head off. The chemistry between Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant is great, but they could not be without the supporting cast, plus the lovely leopard and the dog!

Nathan R (ca) wrote: An average film adaptation of one of King's most average books.

Jack G (de) wrote: I won't remember much of it tomorrow, or feel a need to seek it out again, but I'm glad it exists, sort of. The cinematography and certain (though not all) choices in random exteriors are nice to look at, and the actors London and Oldham have good friendly chemistry. But, and I hate to say this, I wish *something* would happen in it; the height of drama comes with a massage in a hot-tub (which, I'll admit, is a great little scene). I appreciate that it's minimalist and meditative and all that, and what surrounds these men is important, but I think Reichardt would mine much better minimalist ground in her next feature, Wendy & Lucy. Also the last three minutes seems to be just ... huh? B-roll footage.
