(nl) wrote: Henry Fool was everything you'd expect in a good Hal Hartley film: stylized, eccentric performances; some absurd and tragi-comic scenes layered right through, with a central theme told through a cast of amiable and sympathetic characters, superadded to a central performance which carried it through some terribly dark places to an almost iconic final scene. Fay Grim on the other hand is Hal Hartley at his worst: a weak performance from Parker Posey (which is surprising since she was so good in the first film), and a series of scenes which barely hold together as more than cheap lampoons of spy thrillers, an avenue already exhausted by David Lynch. There are some flashes that remind us of just how good Hartley can be - there's a nice running gag about a cipher Henry has sent inside an obscene camera which a priest, a rabbi and an imam are forced to decipher; and there's a strong scene between Henry and his captor towards the end - otherwise, Jeff Goldblum notwithstanding, this is a film I wish he'd never made, because it resolves ambiguities Henry Fool deliberately left unresolved, and lends Fool a grandeur which the first film took away to good purpose. Genre is a good thing, but Hartley should probably start thinking rather more about ideas and emotion and rather less about how to jerry-rig a skeleton of genre around them.

(ru) wrote: A real mixed bag, this film reveals the capricious nature of the Stalin era in the Soviet Union without romanticizing it, but is, like many Russian novels, terribly over-populated. The first half hour to forty-five minutes, we are introduced to the large clan that lives in the dacha of retired hero of the revolution, Col. Kotov (Nikita Mikhalkov, who also directed) and some few guests. Some of the characters serve important roles later on in the film, but most serve as background to the main story. Initially, this viewer was quite confused trying to figure out who all these people were and how they were related. However, the rest of the film quite clearly set us up for the chilling, violent conclusion. The scenery was bucolic, and there was a liberal dose of humor to go with the inevitable tragedy. If one can make it through the whirlwind of character introductions, there is a reward for patience.

(jp) wrote: A serious comic misfire, this must have been a bit funny when it came out, but holds no water now. There is no inspired lunacy or even simple, effective slapstick. Even Jerry Lewis (to whom Jim Carrey has been compared) does little to tickle the funny bone. Instead, we have an overbearing, over-boring take-off of the Cinderella story. Don't bother.
(it) wrote: Oh, bonjour! You want to know what I think of Gigi, do you? Well, to quote a line from the movie, "It's a bore!" This is probably the worst film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. This movie is boring, the characters are annoying, the songs are forgettable and the story is a mess. Thank heaven I never have to watch this film again!
(nl) wrote: The "1st room" was the only part of the movie that is disappointing and just plain strange. Despite that, the other three rooms make you laugh and this movie isn't meant to have a deep meaning, it's just for fun entertainment. Tim Roth also plays a very great & whacky bellboy

The Muppets are back and I have great news, this is a wonderful movie, lots of music, lots of singing and dancing and of course, lots of Muppets. Jason Segel wrote and starred in this film and he is very good as Gary, and Amy Adams is wonderful and lovely as Mary. The Muppets are there usual selves and Animal steals the show. Even if this was the worst movie, it would have definitely been saved by the closing credits which can only be described with one word, Mahnamahna. RECOMMENDED
