Ten Canoes torrent reviews

Chris E (gb) wrote: This movie is actually pretty good and I really don't get the hate it garnered. It expands the mythology while recapturing the feel of the original. There are a few dumb decisions made by the characters. I don't buy for a second that the girl would have climbed the tree at the end. Still overall it's a solid movie and if you're looking for something to watch late one night you should give it a shot.

J C (br) wrote: This is a very underrated and unappreciated 1980s action/horror movie filmed at the height of the Cold War. The leading actor is Mike Norris (Chuck's son). The plot is original and entertaining. Some young American 20-somethings go on a hunting trip on the Finland-USSR border. Yeah, I know what you're thinking: "What Americans in their right mind would go hunting along the Finland-USSR border at height of the Cold War?" Just keep in mind that these kids are not Princeton grads! After a few beers, they play a game of limbo at the border fence (again, not a smart move!). That would be enough excitement for most people, but not these geniuses. When they realize that the border is unguarded, they decide to up the ante and cross into the Soviet Union. Eventually, they get lost in some desolate Russian village and get framed for murder. They're then sent to a hellish Russian prison where inmates are used as human chess pieces. I thought it was entertaining!

Kim B (us) wrote: The most gangster cop movie i think ive ever seen. Clint eastwood plays a terrific hardass hero who doesnt give a shit what other ppl think. It shows how hard cops jobs are esp when politics come into play. Movie moves fast and it mostly a cat and mouse chasing game btw cop and murderer. I liked the suspenseful jazz score and how the movie was edited to be quick and smooth. Also u could totally feel a cool 70s vibe from this film. Movie isnt esp grand as far as plot and its cliches but btw the style, acting and directing its pretty good. Now i know where that famous line "do u feel lucky punk?" Comes from.

Caroline B (mx) wrote: It took me awhile to figure out what it was about this movie that didn't sit right with me. I wanted to love it: it's pre-code! It's Barbara Stanwyck!It's set in 1920's China! AND it's early Capra! But there remained a feeling throughout that something was missing. Don't get me wrong, it is interesting to see sexualization of "Orientalism" by an American woman. This something that is invisible or discounted in modern cinema (and much of our culture)and certainly controversial for any time period, so my appetite was well whetted. Capra does a nice job of expressing the mixed emotions of the Western woman, missionary wife-to-be Megan Davis (Barabara Stanwyck). Through daydreams and fantasy sequences, we discover that Megan has trouble separating her feelings of disgust and attraction for General Yen. His very otherness, not just ethnically, but morally, repulses her to the point where she cannot help but be mesmerized by it. And this is where the missing piece should be: we never get to see the jump she makes from fascination to adoration of General Yen. Sure, it is understandable to be attracted to that which we hate, but when she openly declares her love for him, rather than the repressed subconsious infatuation we have seen up to this point, we don't understand it and find it grossly unbelievable. And not just because they have only known each other a week, but because we haven't been invited to understand any redeeming quality that would allow Megan to admit her feelings even to herself.

Jin T (kr) wrote: Remake of the 1976 movie, this time Chlo Grace Moretz portrays the ever famous insecured yet delicate character, Carrie. I haven't seen the classic film for a long time and I saw it when I was a kid. The movie reminded me of not to mess with girls like her! The power that Carrie possesses seems to be explored a little bit more in this film and we also get to see more of Carrie's characteristics. Perhaps they wanted this movie to be more of a exploration of the essential elements of the story such as the so-called telekinesis and Carrie herself. The story starts off in a quite demented way, if you ask me. I thought Julianne Moore performed well. I thought everybody did but some scenes where every single student is making fun of Carrie seems quite exaggerated unless there is a school that actually has students like that, I'll take back what I said. Other than that, the movie simply shows how a timid teenager becomes this powerful being that brings chaos and destruction on everything because supposedly being tricked by the idiot teenagers. And that's what I think is the moral of the story in this movie. Teenagers becoming bullies, even without apparent reason to target the weak and it has been like that ever since, I would know. I've been on both sides and it's not a pretty thing at all. But I'm not going to rant on about the concept of bullying but rather this movie is actually pretty good. I thought it would just be another mediocre remake of a classic horror movie that's already established to be THE classic movie nevertheless but I thought it was not that bad at all. There were a few flaws I've found in the movie but they're not much of a problem like any other movie that I've reviewed before. One of them was the idea that Sue's boyfriend didn't tell Carrie that he's doing it out of "charity". More specifically, to just do it because Sue suggested that Carrie deserves a "magical night" at the prom. While it's good and all to have that kind of consideration but they lack the tendency to actually be in Carrie's shoes, in her perspective. The generosity was too much for my taste but then again, it is a horror movie after all. No matter how much I yell at the screen (which I didn't by the way), they're not gonna actually listen to me. What happens, happens and it is to be expected anyhow. The CGI effects are good enough, believable. The part where Carrie learns more about her power was interesting. 2013 movie version of Carrie is another movie to enjoy watching. Especially if you're a horror movie buff, this is something to not miss out on for. But then again, it's okay to miss out on for anyways. It's not recommended but it is suggested. Good movie, Chlo Grace Moretz was awesome, and Judy Greer survived another chaotic moment.
