Rangan R (ru) wrote: A last minute attempt to find the truth!The Korean thrillers are the best, I can always pick them whenever I feel I want to be entertained. It was directed by a newcomer, but two well known faces interested me. 'The Classic' and 'The Last Blossom' are my favourites and now they are together for this, but a different genre. I think the story was great, but there's something lacking like the thrilling parts which is not as electrified again the concept the film had. You know it has some nervous moments, but not up to the mark if you compare it with other Korean thrillers you have seen.It was the tale of a young woman Da Eun who happily living with her father. The real moments of the film begin when she went to a film that based on the real event and soon she develops some doubts. Since she's a pursuing journalism, starts to dig it while the case is about to expire very soon. But what she finds and how it affects her life is the rest of the film where the pace keeps increasing till the final scene.Like I said it was based on an awesome idea, but should have developed better. Even though it falls short to get the viewers' appreciation, not doubt it was well executed with the brilliant performances. Except it fails to detail the important event of the film where all the puzzle created which is actually a flashback and supposed to be the twist. So I think the climax was a bit clich, but a decent solution, overall not a bad film as it was considered by others. Once watchable and instantly forgettable.6.5/10

Daisy E (it) wrote: Cher isn't perfect. That's what makes her likeable to some and not others. I like her because she's herself and she doesn't think it's fair that she's not taken seriously based on what's important to her. Josh sees her in a different light, for all her good and her bad, but in a good way. That, to me, is what this film is about. And that's why I love it.Cher goes shopping when she needs cheering up, balances Buns of Steel with learning a new word everyday and looks out for her father, her teachers, her friends and charities. She betters herself whilst staying true to herself, a 15 year old girl, learning to live in a society that doesn't take pretty girls seriously. Josh and also Travis represent the male gender seeing the girls as strong idols to love and share with, compared to characters like Ethan who get pissed when they get the get the wrong end of the stick to whether a girl is into them or not. Cher meddles, as in all comedies, which is frustrating but it's the foundation for comedy capers and also understanding for a girl in high school.I adore the whole aesthetic of this 90s classic. That teamed with the strong female character and themes of self, sexuality, friendship, family and love make it one of my favourites.

Todd S (it) wrote: Joe Pesci is one of the most underrated comedic actors in all of Hollywood. The reason is simple, Cousin Vinny aside, he's never really been able to have success on his own. Pesci is usually in huge movies, paired with other big stars, and his rave reviews fall under the supporting actor tag. Jimmy Hollywood is yet another example of Joe Pesci going out on his own and striking out big time, which is quite surprising, when you consider who the Director of the film was. Jimmy Alto (Pesci) is a failing actor in Hollywood, he's done everything he can to make a name for himself, but he never has. One night a down and depressed Jimmy finds that his car has been broken into and it's the last straw. Along with him best friend, William (Christian Slater), Jimmy decides he's going to make a name for himself by cleaning up the streets of L.A., but that doesn't go exactly as planned either. The film is Written/Directed by Barry Levinson, who is usually known for his originality, but in this case, he's got nothing more than a trailer trash rip off of The Green Hornet. The parallels are really uncanny and the originality just isn't there. Even if a film has been done before, if it's good, I can still somewhat enjoy it, but that's another glaring problem with this film, it's not even that funny! Where are Joe Pesci's legendary profanity filled tirades? Where are the classic Home Alone type slapstick moments? Jimmy Hollywood just kind of is what it is, and what it is, is slow, predictable, and done. As a fan of Joe Pesci, I had to see it, but you don't, trust me, you're not missing anything.

The title translates to "Pocket Money" from French, I always heard about it and it might have even showed in Lubbock I had just graduated from TTU and was living there. Anyway 06/12/09 finally watched it. Great film about adolescents and their school and one pupil who has less than the rest. It is cute and funny and in some parts painful. The kids learn to kiss and make fun of each other. The film is a very nostalgic look at Paris of the early 1970s, the kids and their parents and teachers. I really enjoyed it. most critics along with just about anybody who has seen it rate the film highly. It is comic witty and wise. four stars

Thomas D (kr) wrote: They call these films video game adaptations for a reason. They are meant to be adaptations and not just another installation into that franchise. 'Afterlife' feels way more like video game on screen than it does a film by itself.The film begins with CGI filled action sequenced that is flooded with unnecessary slow motion camera work. It's filmed in 3D, so I guess Paul W.S. Anderson was really wanted to exploit that version of the medium and give the audience it's most visceral film to date in the franchise. While there are some moments of brilliant B-movie fun, 'Afterlife' is just more of the same. And sadly it feels like some scenes are ripped right from the video games without any extra CGI or effects done.As if you weren't already tired of the Umbrella Corp being at the forefront of each and every one of these films, they once again make their unwelcomed presence felt. Minus Dr. Isaacs and now adding pretty much the exact same character in Albert Wesker, the Umbrella Corp doesn't do anything they haven't already done in the series. Seriously, in every film Umbrella spies on Alice & company, attempt to take her down, and have a big confrontation towards the end. Besides a rotating supporting cast, the films are all structured the same way. There's a real lack of creativity here.There's one clear reason why these films are made. Money. The filmmakers know how to produce these features and get people to spend their hard-earned cash on them. I enjoy a silly action adventure as much as the next guy, but there needs to be a little more effort put forth before I can actually certify these as guilty pleasure movies. As of now, they're mindless blood & guts action-horror films. However, the way this movie ends got me undeniably a little bit excited to sit down and watch the next one.+Some fun action scenes-But mostly too CGI filled for my liking-Same old story over and over again4.5/10
