The Crusades torrent reviews

Daniel G (gb) wrote: Magnolia is a movie that eventhough it's awfully long, it manages to stay interesting the whole time. I think it's the format, in which you get a little bit of different stories at times, which helps to not get tired of one. There's clearly a fast pace too. I was actually really considering this being the best PTA movie, until the frogs scene. I know PTA loves the symbols and deep meanings, but it just feels completely unnecessary up until that point. It doesn't really add up or change anything in the plot. It just takes you out of the movie and reminds you it's a movie.

Jeff B (ca) wrote: I used to watch this movie all the time when I was little, I loved it. Well, watching it again, it's really not that great. The premise is pretty good, the son of Satan is trying to collect a bunch of stones to bring his dad to Earth, basically just an excuse to show a bunch of deaths in the film. But the problem is that the heroes aren't entertaining and they're bad actors. At least Julian Sands (who I always enjoy) makes this watchable.

Chris S (gb) wrote: It's utterly ridiculous, pointless and bloody fun. There's no real message or social commentary since by the next half of the film, their goal of destroying beautiful people is soon forgotten and much of the film is about the kidnapping and the greed of the terrorists. And pretty much before the second half, most of the terrorist members are dead. They make up for the despicable and disgusting characters with the laugh-out-loud scenes and by killing all of them sooner or later.

Jamie S (jp) wrote: watchable but quite poor compared to the first and third.

The M (br) wrote: Did any one keep body-count?I lost track..Well it's violent and as far down the B-scale you can get.There is a loit of things to complaine about. Story, actors, etc.But it's still entertaining, with lots of violence and nudity.And the soundtrack is fab!

Charles P (de) wrote: The Color of Pomegranates is a bizarre, fantastic refection on the life of a poet, told in a series of astonishing symbolisms that are exceedingly ceremonial and demanding of its viewer, yet almost inexpressibly fascinating.

Tom B (mx) wrote: Janet Green wrote the remarkably sensitive script for this police procedural that takes on the issue of racism in 1959 London. How sensitive is it? One of her characters is studying Montessori, and each of the other characters exist in their own right, as they are. I can only wonder at what might have been had she ever teamed up with Anthony Mann. The effort this film takes to provide an impartial view of the people and their own views, navigating past a good-guys bad-guys scenario, serves it well to a modern audience. As several comments have pointed out, the film captures an era, providing a valued glimpse through incredibly great location shoots in gorgeous bleak color, of the London of the time. But it also gives us a glimpse of an exceedingly fine way of thinking that was alive and well and writing films of significance within the framework of genre entertainment. Really fascinating, great, and satisfying work. I'm excited to see her work with Dirk Bogarde from the same era.
