The Knack... and How to Get It
In England, the times are a changing: it's mods and rockers. On the day Nancy gets off the London train, cases in hand, looking for the YWCA, Colin has had enough of missing out on the sexual revolution. He begs his smooth (and misogynistic) pal Tolen to teach him 'the knack' - how to score with women. Serendipitously, Colin and his new lodger Tom meet up with Nancy while Colin's buying a bed larger than Tolen's. The three hit it off, but their simple fun ends when Tolen meets Nancy. Colin is jealous but impotent, and Tolen both attracts and repels her. She swoons, wonders what happened, and cries 'rape.' Impish serendipity rubs against unsettling ambiguity.
Desperate to improve his luck with women, London schoolteacher Colin enlists his artist roommate, Tom, to help drag a brass bed back to their flat. But their fun soon ends when a young woman from out of town enters their London world. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki
The Knack... and How to Get It torrent reviews
(kr) wrote: Great movie with good cast. Melissa McCarthy was brilliant. Jason Bateman did pretty well.
(br) wrote: So-so, but on the low end. I found this movie really long and dull, nothing much happens, even though the premise/story wasn't bad and could have been done in a bit of a faster pace. The acting was all pretty good, excepting the kid who plays Sonny, he was just gangly and made strange faces when talking ... I didn't enjoy him much. And the presence of the mysterious blind guitar man ... unnecessary. They didn't even make him "mysterious" until closer to the end of the movie, so when they suddenly throw at you that he's all mystical and crap, it's way out of left field. Like, what? The music wasn't bad, the story, like I said, was pretty good underneath all the bad pacing, and oddly, my favorite bits were the parts showing the relationship between a couple of minor characters (a singer in the Honeydripper and her husband ... they were very sweet/heartbreaking.) I wouldn't exactly tell people to steer clear of this movie, but I wouldn't rush out to find it either.

(mx) wrote: Jannat is an enjoyable and watchable fair, which is a decent watch. It has some predictable and loose cuts & moments, but you gotta admit, it fully entertains you and leaves you with a smile on your face at the end! Recommended! Verdict = Hit
(br) wrote: What started as a seemingly ordinary thriller film condenses down into something surprisingly darker and great.
(br) wrote: It's a great family movie. My kids and I loved it. Been trying to find on DVD for my grandkids. Nearly impossible.
(mx) wrote: A truly striking feature debut for Lynne Ramsay. While some people have called the film overtly grim (not unlike her most recent film We Need to Talk About Kevin), it's integral to the viewing experience to realize the film has humorous and hopeful moments. Even though Ramsay bathes her shots in a bleak light that paints Glasgow the color of Medieval Black Death, the bliss of childhood is never far from the grim realities depicted. Told in a very unconventional narrative, in terms of both imagery and dialogue, Ratcatcher is just as uncompromising as it is compelling. It's a shame the film never received a wide cinematic release, but it's very worth your hard earned money to purchase the Criterion Collection DVD.
(br) wrote: SO much better than the novel. I would never see it again, all said and done, it was executed well and kept me interested through out.
(gb) wrote: Attenborough's great biography on the silent film start. Downey Jr's physically perfects the role although his cockney accent is questionable. A fascinating life spanning 88 years is covered thoroughly and entertainingly.

(es) wrote: Mark Dolson (Zeljko Ivanek), a passionate and idealistic seminarian is assigned to work with a jaded priest (Jack Lemmon) in rich suburbia. Their relationship gets a rocky start, but soon they find some common ground. As they begin to forge a friendship, a number of issues confronting the Roman Catholic Church are examined. This film is sensitive, introspective and deep, while remaining accessible.
(nl) wrote: In a way it's cold but strong,tone makes it in some way better than the the - maybe even overly romantic though beautiful and impressiove 1992 adaptation. And this version is visually beautiful as weel, plus sexy. But especially I liked the way the actor of Dracula portrayed him. The tense, arrogant, cunning and self-assurent being was really impressive. Especially when combined to the beautiful shaded eyes and that adorable wake of a smile we see in some scenes.

(ag) wrote: There were so many awesome elements of this movie, but there were also some not-so-awesome elements. Thankfully the good outweighs the bad. Hilary Swank is dynamite, along with her crew of talented students. The story on its own is wonderfully inspirational. Close to the end, however, it felt very soap opera-y, particularly with the divorce and the whole to-do with the students wanting to stay with Ms. G. Regardless or not if it happened in real life, having the students move on with Ms. G wouldn't really teach them anything new about moving forward. Sometimes the flow of the story got a little lost and sidetracked, almost distracted. Overall it is a very good film with some moments that didn't quite fit.
