(au) wrote: A lovely story about a girl and a wild horse. I have seen better horse movies but this was still good. I'd like to see the second one now
(br) wrote: lame sci-fi crime drama
(fr) wrote: After finding out it pointlessly reboots the series again we are given a decent monster flick with a strong female lead a pretty cool monster for Godzilla to fight but once again the special effects don't hold up for a movie made in 2000 and most of its characters a bit bland as well. Making this yet another watchable flick for those fans of silly monster movies but nothing more
(ag) wrote: I really enjoyed this movie. Great storyline i thought.
(us) wrote: Damn good sports movie
(de) wrote: Terribly overrated and slow, Mon Oncle Antoine is still a jarring and interesting chacter study. The problem is the two stories being intertwined. They appear to have little in common on the surface and this riddles much of the film with confusion until they meet in the final act. Still an interesting film but certainly not "Canada's Best" as it is often regarded.

(it) wrote: despite the fact that the picture and sound on the dvd transfer was awful, i found the film to be an ok slasher. not nearly as good as i epected it to be.
(ag) wrote: This is not very good. It's slow a silly and just doesn't work. However, kudos to the hair and makeup departments for doing a fairly decent job.
(us) wrote: The movie itself begins from bizarre to just downright creepy. A not so jolly Christmas movie. Beyond dumb.
