The King of Kings
The King of Kings is the Greatest Story Ever Told as only Cecil B. DeMille could tell it. In 1927, working with one of the biggest budgets in Hollywood history, DeMille spun the life and Passion of Christ into a silent-era blockbuster. Featuring text drawn directly from the Bible, a cast of thousands, and the great showman’s singular cinematic bag of tricks, The King of Kings is at once spectacular and deeply reverent—part Gospel, part Technicolor epic.

(ru) wrote: I can honestly say I loved this movie, But my opinion is pretty bias because I LOVE surfing, Other than the fact it was low-budget and you could see the "double-takes" / Mistakes so to speak... the shots were absolutely stunning and the music was GREAT! And I honestly didn't think the acting was all that bad. At times I was like... "Ok I've seen better" but it seemed like that happened at the LEAST dramatic parts. The more dramatic parts seemed like the acting was better. And the accents were very hard for them to cover up well... Sasha Jackson (Dana) is British and at some times you could hear her say a word in her original accent... but it worked fine because it the movie her mother is originally from south africa so... the mixture of accents was fine.. Pushi however, I thought her accent was A BIT over-done but that could be just me. But like I said, in my mind it was only Pushi's accent that bothered me. Overall I've seen this movie about 15 times, and am still not tired of it.

(ru) wrote: Great movie! Reasonably funny own its own, but Will Ferrell has the ability to make even the most horrible movies funnier. Found my self very confused at points when trying to figure out which side of the story is happening. Another typical movie from woody Allen.

(ca) wrote: a quick, fun thriller that does a good enough job of holding your attention and making the viewer care about what is going on throughout. While Hayden and Alba would be in the running for most overacting and uh...eh hem.....not best(?) acting, respectively, each does a sufficient job of filling their characters roles here. While the plot itself is a bit far fetched, if you're able to let your personal constraints on realism and plot holes go, you'll find yourself a decent little flick here. Perfect filler for a lazy weekend day.

Maybe it's just that I'm a sucker for baseball movies, but I enjoyed this even though it's horribly predictable and they do what tends to bug me about sports movies ... when they have the play by play announcer basically hold your hand through every inch of drama in the game. I mean, I know that not everyone who watches the movie is a baseball fan, so you kinda have to do it, but it wears on you after a while. Overall, it's a pretty typical romance story with baseball as the backdrop, and I'd say it's worth watching.
(de) wrote: A charming a little film with darker elements that is visually memorable but does not go over board with the special effects. It's a surreal if not somewhat bleak walk through the dreams, wishes, and fears of children and a well acted atmospheric one at that. It has also aged quite well.
(kr) wrote: Epic fantasy that holds up as one of the best, particularly in how to do it for adults. The cast is superb and a who's who of future stars, from Patrick Stewart to Ciaran Hinds. The scene stealer is NIcol Williamson as Merlin, whose mischievous & wise depiction is probably the best ever put of the character on screen. The real star is director John Boorman, who manages to cover the entire Arthurian legend from Uther to Mordred in just over two hours without skimping on anything. The battles are brilliantly choreographed & brutal (it's surprising this film was originally rated PG), and Boorman doesn't shy from the darker aspects of the legend, from Guinevere's affair with Lancelot to Arthur's incest with his sister, Morgana. In many ways, this film shows how ancient fantasy actually predates the themes now popular in "Game of Thrones". While some aspects are a bit dated (some of the acting is a bit over-the-top, along with some of the visual effects), this is one of the finest fantasy films ever produced, along with being the best film version of the King Arthur legend to date.

(ca) wrote: Endlessly witty and slyly subversive, Thank You For Smoking sees Jason Reitman at his finest, constructing a film that will make you absolutely love a man who is, for all intents and purposes, a wise-ass, egotistical jerk. Aaron Eckhart is perfectly cast, taking every opportunity to show off his smug grin and astute arguing abilities, but he lends the role all the gravitas it requires when necessary, without ever over-sentimentalising. He's supported by many fine performances, and Reitman avoids the obvious trap of making them caricatures. The film makes many great points, especially regarding freedom of choice and the callous publicity-seeking nature of bigwigs, but does it with such humour that you don't ever feel like it's preaching. It takes many swipes at large corporations, like plenty of movies do, but is also willing to point out that, however harmful the product a company may be selling, they're just trying to make a living too. The closing scene, which manage to throw in a line that makes cheese seem profound, is utterly brilliant, the very definition of a perfect ending. If you like your films clever, thought-provoking or just plain funny, then Thank You For Smoking is for you.
(ru) wrote: It doesn't hold a candle to any of the LOTR films, but most of the action was on the scale of epic of the original trilogy and not the video-gamey kind like the first two films. The characters and story were all much more compelling as well. There also weren't (too many) cringe-worthy attempts at humor. I kind of want to watch the first two again now, perhaps i'll like them more knowing the quality of the end result.
