(it) wrote: Haunted High or "Ghostquake" is the compelling story about troubled Halloman High School janitor Ortiz, who is investigating the mysterious death of his sister Marisol, who was killed by a cult half a century ago. Set to the authentic backdrop of a buzzing high school, this story is told in a haunting and chilling fashion. Err, who the hell am I kidding. Ghostquake is right up there with the most abominable abberations of crap you and I have ever seen. So who's responsible for this utter pile of shit? Written by Anthony C. Ferrante and directed by Jeffrey Scott Lando, this is a real "gem" in the truest sense of the word. Lando has been making TV movies that get IMDB scores between 3.0 and 4.2 (for 2010's 'Goblin'). Why anyone funded any of his movies after his horrendous debut 'Insecticidal' in 2005, is beyond me. Ferrante is a real renowned writer, racking up classics like 'Boo', 'Para-Homeless Activity' and, seriously, 'Sharknado'. He hasn't managed to write a movie with an IMDB score of 5.0, but got close with 2012's 'Leprechaun's Revenge' at 4.6. Ferrante is also dabbling in directing. The IMDB scores of his last four movies go down from 4.3 to 2.5. You get the idea here. His co-credited writer Paul A. Birkett also seems to have a fascination with sharks, doing the screenplay for the 2013 TV movie 'Ghost Shark'. It has a rating of 3.8 on IMDB and you should really read the plot of that gem for shits and giggles. But back to the movie at hand. If you were on the promotional team for this movie, you'd get a bonus for the first paragraph of this review. It's all a matter of perspective, really. And my perspective, 'viewer', is one you'd best stay away from. Danny Trejo plays the janitor in this movie. His first line is 'Where are you going, boy?' and it's the best Mr. T impersonation this generation has seen. This 'story' is set in a high school. It's haunted by a former principal and cult leader, who uses dark magic to trap students and teachers to feed on their souls. His grandson is one of the students and he inadvertently wakes his demonic grandpa from the dead. Somehow they left his body in the school after he caused a bloodbath 50 years ago. Long story short: almost everyone dies by the hands of the demonic principal or his henchwoman. Not that you get to see their actual deaths, they are all bloodless and insinuated. All special effects, from plastic frogs to beams of light, are so horrendously amateurish that it's an insult to everyone's imagination. Just as I am finishing this review, I realize that I will be the first to review this movie. No professional or audience reviews are available on this site as I type. Hell, they don't even have the movie poster. If that's not enough of a warning, I hope this review is! Pros: It's only 84 minutes including the credits. Cons: All of the above Verdict: I want my 84 minutes back!
(kr) wrote: It was initially a good movie showing well the absurdity of Indian society and people in general. However it was too long, especially at the end where the scenes started really dragging the film to a standstill. Had there there been extensive editiing and some unnecesary scenes cut out the films would have been much better without losing any of its impact.

(de) wrote: Uno de los primeros proyectos de Amy Adams, Junebug es una historia muy del tipo de cine americano independiente, donde un joven empresario americano trae a su elegante novia a la realidad de su infancia, la aburrida vida de pueblo gringa. Todo bajo el pretexto de buscar a un artista para una galera de arte. El choque de realidades es lo que marca la trama, donde se enfrenta pasada y presente. Recomendable, de todas formas.
(br) wrote: Very powerfull, this film takes time to sink in as it strikes a note on human nature. Heartless, Envious, Understanding, Admirative, Compassionate, Protective are the stages that transform a man tool into a man with humanity. A big must see.

(fr) wrote: Unlike so many other critiques I've read on this film, I actually enjoyed this film. People call this a weak offering but the guy was DEAD and yet they still managed to give us an all new adventure with Inspector Clouseau. Some great scenes with Peter Sellers that had previously been lost on the editing room floor were saved and presented in this new adventure. Also, people fail to remember that this film was also a set up for the next film "Curse of the Pink Panther". Blake Edwards defied GOD and death and gave us one more film. Not to many have been able to accomplish this.
(mx) wrote: Cabaret is an incredible film. It is about a female girlie club entertainer in Weimar Republic era Berlin who romances two men. Liza Minnelli and Michael York give excellent performances. The screenplay is well written. Bob Fosse did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the music and drama. Cabaret is a must see.
