Jacob B (de) wrote: The whole "confusing timeline" thing aside, X-Men: First Class has the hit franchise roaring back to life following 2 films that had some enjoyable action but were never truly compelling. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have great chemistry together with Fassbender doing a great job of portraying Erik Lenhsherr/Magneto, a troubled man who just wants to avenge his mother by killing the dude responsible for it...Kevin Bacon. The action sequences are exciting with the highlight for me being when Erik uses his powers to control metal chains to sink the villain's yacht. It manages to tell a story for events we already know are going to happen...like...you know...Xavier being handicapped...whilst still managing to remain suspenseful thanks to its script. Matthew Vaughn, thank you for helping make the X-Men great again.

WS W (gb) wrote: An Indie. Odd, mellow but unique. Down to earth. Plain & real enough to have the minimum use of so-called 'dramatic' coating (alias the bubble-gum, fairy-tale like- thou there are still some). A super cast- Lou Pucci gives a very convincing performance off a confusing, comin' off age adolescent boy. Great supportings also from Vincent D'Onofrio, Vince Vaugh. Lovely acoustic soundtracks too.

Faisal A (ag) wrote: Some people may complain about the direction, the technique, the (seemingly) deliberate slow pacing and buildup, but for me, this is one excellent character study, and P.T.A. knows how to structure a familiar story and package it with commonly used themes, and make it even richer because by the time its over, you would have been deeply invested in this character. Its definitely a rewarding experience, and while it might be a bit short compared to the films P.T.A. would later be renowned for, its just as strong in its own right. Phillip Baker Hall is one of those supporting actors in Hollywood who was always known for playing grumpy but loveable cops and lawmen, and even mobsters, and in this film, he gets to show off his acting chops by playing this very sympathetic man who tries to do the right thing (the way he sees it of course). You don't have to agree with his actions, but the movie doesn't necessarily want you to be completely on board with that. It paints a picture of this elderly man, and wants you to take from it what you can.

Stuart K (es) wrote: Directed by Peter Hyams (Capricorn One (1978), Outland (1981) and 2010 (1984)), comes this fast and furious satire on TV, spoofing popular American TV shows along the way. It might have dated in the years since it's release, but it was a funny idea for a film at the time, even if critics and audiences at the time didn't agree. It has couch potato Roy Knable (John Ritter), who struggles as a plumbing salesman, but is happy when watching TV. Much to the frustration of his neglected wife Helen (Pam Dawber). However, Roy gets a call from a mysterious man called Mr. Spike (Jeffrey Jones), who gives Roy the offer of a lifetime. A new TV, and a big satellite dish which can pick up 666 channels filled with shows the other networks can't get, which all seem to have a cruel, sadistic edge to them. Roy takes him up on a free home trial, Helen is furious, but then they end up getting sucked into the TV world by the dish. Now, they discover they have to survive in this world for 24 hours if they want to be free, but Mr. Spike is determined to see that they won't get through it, but Roy knows TV. This is a sort of Faust style fable with some good laughs along the way, the best bit being when they end up as cartoon mice in an animated piece done by Chuck Jones. The shows include thirtysomething-to-life, My Three Sons of Bitches and Murder, She Likes. :P
