Tales of the Unusual

A four-part anthology in the spirit of The Twilight Zone, this film starts off with a group of commuters stranded at a train station in the rain, listening to stories told by one of the group. These include tales of a group stranded in the mountains and haunted by guilt over a death they inadvertantly caused, an emotionally broken chessmaster pressed into playing a real-life game for an eccentric millionaire, a wandering medieval samurai who finds a modern-day cell phone on the ground and a person on the other end asking questions about the past, and a young couple who agree to try a computer simulation of what their future as husband and wife would be like.

Tina Tatevik A (jp) wrote: Funny interesting and some parts true. Watch it I liked it.

David H (kr) wrote: This was one wild movie. Not completely believable but very interesting. A wild taxi ride driven by a paranormal Nazi killing machine.

Jason V (fr) wrote: A pretty fun comedy, full of craziness from characters who have all their own strangenesses.A lot of insults, a lot of couples between the kids and also between the adults, and finally some very funny sequences compose this movie.It also remembered me some souvenirs, as I've been instructor in holiday camps, with child from 5 to 18 years old, depends the camps.It could've been anyway way more funny.

Nick B (us) wrote: Excellent film, one of the best from the Coen brothers.

Yannick D (br) wrote: Barren, unconvincing, ghastly Hollywood-fare that doesn't deserve to be remembered. Half a laugh for Claude.

John D (ag) wrote: A fantastic Australian film, flawed in parts by an overly intertwined plot but saved by cameo's by some of the finest actors in Australia.

Mark R (kr) wrote: Favorite Pixar movie that they've made so far!

Andrew L (au) wrote: An under appreciated flick, Matthew Modine shines in it though.

Jennifer M (au) wrote: Underrated movie that I own and love! The acting of the movie's plot was well done. I wish more would give this movie a chance. Very good job by Ving Rhames and John Voight.

Itamar K (nl) wrote: At first, The Last Seduction felt like a sleazy exploitation pic, but it quickly surpassed my expectations. John Dahl's film is a surprisingly sophisticated neo-noir, which addresses all the prototypes of the classic film noir, but places the femme fatale at center stage, and re-examines the character prototype, through the filter or more modern views on values and genders. The Last Seduction plays with the viewers' expectations, and with the way they view the characters and their actions.And aside from all that, it's a very well-paced, well-constructed thriller which keeps the audience interested at all times, slickly executing dialogs full of subtext and tension. Linda Fiorentino (is this seriously the same girl from Dogma?!) is phenomenal in the lead role, and Peter Berg more than pulls his weight too, though his character seems simple and flat at first it grows and develops throughout the film. The only real fault I can find is Bill Pullman's ridiculous performance - he should really stick to comedies. But hepulls it together for the finale, a deliciously wicked and satisfying conclusion that ties all the loose ends. Definitely recommended.

Christopher S (es) wrote: Pretty awful neo-noir thriller plods lifelessly through every cliche in the book. The usually talented cast does nothing to make the hackneyed, ceaselessly predictable script work. The noir style feels cheap and forced, underlined by George Fenton's generic score. An instantly forgettable dud.

ANDERSON G (nl) wrote: Spike Jonze has in his hands a complicated script by Charlie Kaufman, and it's amazing how it transforms this complex script, different, silly and seemingly almost infilmvel in a complete audio visual work (in narrative terms), but somehow the work not me handle, it is not the fault of the film, all Spike Jonzen movies are great, but none captivates me emotionally, and this is no different, as I said before, it seems something silly, which turns into a beautiful romance (outside the traditional ), but I can not untie that premise "Boba" with the rest of the film, maybe Spike should use more sound resource, since this film is missing a soundtrack at times, although the sound mixing is impeccable, photography, the characters and even the extras in the scene are emblematic, some characters have only one speaks in history, but realize their great personalities, and amazing scenery, remember the Schwartz couple's home or surrealistic company that Craig (John Cusack) works, the film also has a philosophy to present, we are stuck in our bodies, our lives are miserable, we are ambition of slaves (yes, remember Fight Club), which we would not give to be someone else even for fifteen minutes? Our lives are so bad that? I do not know, or Spike will know, because it only displays the question and does not delve into it. "Being John Malkovich" It's a good movie, do not expect nothing amazing, but I believe faithfully that depending on the person, her anger find "Being John Malkovich" your favorite movie because he has something to say, but it depends on the person understand and sympathize with him.Sorry for my English translator google.
