But I just watched Lost in Thailand yesterday and I was laughing so hard that I was crying thru out the movie. This movie is WORTH seeing. Side note I'm American and didn't get lost from understanding the story.

This movie definite made Zoroark shine and show just how good of a Pokemon it really is. This movie also has fantastic effects and a darker storyline than most Pokemon movies. I'd definitely recommend that you see this movie.:-)

It was missing something that would catapult it to one of my favorite romances, but as it is, it's a beautiful and moving piece of filmmaking. It's not quite like other movies that populate the genre. It's unique and it follows its own path, even if that path leads to the same place.A self-help author who lost his wife three years earlier goes to Seattle for a sold-out seminar. While there he meets a florist, fresh out of a relationship. While getting to know her, he starts to realize that even though he coaches people on how to move on from a loved ones death; he himself can't do that, and maybe Eloise(the florist) is the perfect person to help his with it.Initially, I decided to give the film a chance because I'll watch anything with Aaron Eckhart or Judy Greer in it. I'm not a fan of Jennifer Aniston, but in Love Happens; she gives a good performance. Eckhart was, like usual, very good. A good supporting cast goes a long way in making the movie what it is as well.It could be argued that Love Happens pulls on the heartstrings a little to often, but it could be argued that Elephants are to big. Love Happens is what it is. Yeah, it pulls the tearjerker card at times, but the important thing is that when it does, it works. The movie isn't looking for tears that don't come, at least in my case. I really enjoyed the film and I recommend it to anyone who has any love at all for a good romance.

I really was amazed at the twists and turns this movie had you thought you knew whats going on but you really have no clue all you have to do is hop on board and enjoy the ride. Its kinda James Bond meets a computer nerds movie but its all about high tech and spys but does not involve computers directly per-say. The big draw card for guys is Lucy Liu. Give it a go you wont be that disappointed.

Thomas F (gb) wrote: A fun mockumentary that explores some serious issues related to the representation/type-casting of African Americans and the suppression of homosexuality in Hollywood movies. Dunye does a good job delivering a more multifaceted perspective on the African American lesbian experience while she at the same time tries to excavate/construct its filmic history. It's a fascinating prospect: in the absence of a stable frame of reference the film just goes ahead and makes up its own. Literally ground-breaking.
The Fat Man Q (br) wrote: This is the first of many Nick Cage (or is it Nic Cage?) movie reviews. I'm trying to make a bit of a formula so we have a good standard. I think it'll go something like this: Opening Rant: We start off with an early-90s gem that looks made for TV, but has far too much nudity to play on the Super Station. Director Sam Pilsbury appears to be banished to TV movies after this, although he did direct the critically acclaimed Free Willy III. For whatever reason Zandalee only played in Hong Kong and Italy, which would explain the Chinese menus on the DVD from Netflix. The Plot: Zandalee is married to a former-poet-now-exec who has no attraction to her whatsoever. Enter Nick Cage, long haired, cocaine addicted painter who sweeps Zandalee off her feet... in the other room... while her husband is entertaining guests. She falls for him, he falls for her, husband is unhappy, everybody's dead by the end except Nick Cage, who is very very sad. Favorite Nick Cage Line: "I wanna shake you naked and eat you alive." Favorite Nick Cage Moment: Nick Cage is very upset, strips down to booty shorts, and rubs paint all over his body while screaming. Alternate: Nick Cage shoveling a mountain of cocaine into his lover's vagina as though the cops are at the door and he's gotta hide the stuff. My Impression: Frankly, it was embarrassing to watch. Everybody was trying so hard to act, and obviously had no idea what they were doing. The filming was awkward, the bar scenes were quiet enough to hear a pin drop, and the ADR and sound mixing were typical TV terrible. That wasn't so bad, was it? Far easier to read than Zandalee was to watch.

Blake P (kr) wrote: One of the best musical comedies of the 1930's, "Gold Diggers of 1933" pulls off quite a difficult feat: it has the Great Depression is a huge component to the plot. Yet, it stills manages to have the feel-good tenderness and zany humor a musical should have. It features show-stopping musical numbers, great tunes, and fantastic comedic performances. It packs a heck of a punch, and it's only 96 minutes long. The film focuses around three gorgeous young showgirls; the sexy Carol (Joan Blondell), ingenue Polly (Ruby Keeler), and the wisecracking Trixie (Aline MacMahon). Unfortunately, the show they were performing in gets shut down, thanks to the spiraling economy. So they're out of the job; but things quickly pick up. The women's neighbor, Brad (Dick Powell), is a songwriter, and he mysteriously funds their new show. He falls deeply in love with Polly, and of course she does back. As it turns out, Brad comes from a family of wealth, and so his elder brother (Warren William), who gives him most of his money, is suspicious that Polly is just a gold digger. But fear not! Polly's friends aren't as dumb as the public might view them. They devise a scheme to distract Brad's brother from the truth, and so Carol pretends to be Polly while Trixie romances his partner in crime. Yet somehow, everything works out in the end. Around the time the Great Depression rolled around, films never focused on what was truly happening in America, and instead made sure that everything on the screen was highly sophisticated -- not to mention the fact that 90% of movies had characters that were super rich (it's not hard to look towards the Astaire & Rogers movies). "Gold Diggers of 1933" flips that mindset completely around, and it's somewhat ingenious. After all, the film focuses around a group of showgirls eager to get jobs after the economic drop lost them. The film itself ended up being one of the highest-grossing films of 1933, and it's easy to see why. While the movie itself did feature some of the most glamorous stars of the day, they portrayed characters that were believable and relatable. It's refreshing even today to see that a filmmaker such as Mervyn LeRoy could see that real-life didn't have to be romanticized for audiences to fall in love. Though "Gold Diggers of 1933" DOES boast self-referential intelligence, it still is one of the most dazzling musicals of all-time. One of famed choreographer's Busby Berekley's first gigantically popular films, the routines are simply marvelous to look at. The opening "We're in the Money" number features beautiful girls dressed to the nines in coin-themed costumes, pulling off dance moves not even thought of today, while Ginger Rogers sings the theme of the routine with glee. The highlight for sure, is the closing showpiece, the touching "Remember My Forgotten Man," which pays tribute to those we lost in World War I. Though these two numbers are certainly excellent, the total four of them are so outrageous that it would be impossible to praise them highly enough. Berkeley has outdone himself here. Sure, what happens on stage in the film is most likely too over-the-top to really be serious, but "Gold Diggers of 1933" is a movie; and it's a great one. It's rare that a musical can be so intelligent while still being lightweight, spectacular, and downright funny.

Jeje W (fr) wrote: If I could sum up The Lobster in one word, it would be "unique". This movie is so different from what anything I've ever seen before. From the setting to the characters, this movie shines. I like how in the first act, it's nothing but comedy. And this movie is hilarious. I laughed so hard in the theater and I could tell people were annoyed. In the second act, though, it's a mixture of comedy and drama. While it is still funny, it takes a much more serious and darker tone. And by the third act, it's a super dark, super depressing, totally dystopian and actually kind of scary. Colin Farrell is absolutely incredible in this movie. The soundtrack also really shines and, like the tone of the film throughout, it changes from this fun, happy sort of song to a dark, depressing one. I think so many people don't like this movie because they don't get it. And I can see why. Again, this movie is so different and unique that it is a little tricky to get used to it immediately. But I loved The Lobster and I'm giving this one a 10/10.
