(ag) wrote: Great documentary. I was floored by the information in this movie.
(ag) wrote: This film often feels like a documentary interspersed with music videos, but that's part actually what makes it enjoyable, because it feels fresh and the simplicity of the film gives you a chance to process the harsh realities of what's being presented to you. I really liked watching the two main bandmates, especially Negar, because she was so earnest.
(us) wrote: Similar to the movie "Everything Must Go" Cyrus is just too weird for my tastes. The movie is very creepy and not as funny as it was intended to be. Also, mumblecore (even though this has some well known actors) is really not my cup of tea. There are just too many awkward and ridiculous moments leading to an obvious ending.

(au) wrote: I enjoyed this more than the first one. I know the originals should be the best, but I really liked this much more! The movie continues as our main characters finish up on college. It's more or less the same first movie, but the characters evolve much more. So, the guys get a cabin at the lake and want to throw the best party ever! It's not like we haven't seen that one before. But, the humor, the characters and the situations they're put in are very hilarious! Though this movie is a bit more 'gross' than the first one, it also delivers more laughs. Smooth Criminal will never be the same again... Speaking of which, the soundtrack is, again, awesome! It is very nostalgic and it made me like the movie even more. The acting is still good. The characters still have a lot of chemistry. This movie was also a more mature movie in a way. I especially liked how Jim and Michelle finally got together. Those two make for some great moments! All in all, a great comedy with lots of funny situations, again a great soundtrack and likeable characters. I would recommend this to fans of both comedy and American Pie.

(de) wrote: I realize that this movie was intentionally goofy and stupid, but that only works for a movie intended for children who enjoy potty humor. But that isn't the case. The movie had a good amount of vulgar jokes and adult level profanity.Lastly, the special effects were the ugliest and tackiest I've even seen on film.
(ag) wrote: Everyone seems to rave about Frankenhooker, not that there's anything wrong with that, because Frankenhooker is genius. However, for my money I would sooner watch Brain Damage, because while its not nearly as popular as Frankenhooker, it offers more gore, more goofs, and more good times. Not to mention Elmer. An adorably diabolic little slug-like alien who has the intelligence and the capability to latch himself onto human brains and force its owner, in this case Brian, to help him feed...and on other humans no less. While the film is not even remotely billed as a comedy, unlike Frankenhooker, I am convinced that the humor, while slightly subtle, is never the less apparent throughout. In fact, I would argue that it is ten times funnier than Frankenhooker, while still managing to be more disturbing than Basket Case. The squeam factor is awesome here. I won't spoil it for you, but I love the date scene with the spaghetti and meatballs. What happens exactly? Well, let's just say you won't be going out for Italian anytime soon.

(de) wrote: Found the story intriguing, but was distracted by the fact that only one of the cast had a Russian accent -- the rest ranged from poor attempts which sounded either cockney or a more upper class English. Very distracting in spite of decent acting job.
(mx) wrote: I was just joking...but what I said was true...The Manchu have taken over the Chinese landscape and only a few Shaolin remain in existence. A male and female who have both lost family members to the Manchu join forces to take down one of the Manchu's primary enforcers, Pai Mai. Pai Mai is the most lethal man on the planet, and commands an army. How can two people take down a militia and the best martial artist on the planet?"His weakest times are between 1 and 3...only then you can kill him."Chia-Liang Liu, director of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, My Young Auntie, The Legend of the Drunken Master, Return to the 36th Chamber, and The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, delivers Executioners for Shaolin. The storyline for this picture is fairly clich but well executed. The martial arts is excellent and the acting is solid. The cast include Lo Leih, Gordon Liu, and Kuan Tai Chen."I wonder where that poor bastard has gone to."I recently came across this on Netflix and watched again for the first time in a long time. This is a classic martial arts picture with the legendary Pai Mai played by Gordon Liu. This isn't my favorite Gordon Liu or Chia-Liang Liu film, but it is worth a viewing and worth owning if you're a fan of the martial arts genre."We're your blood, brother..."Grade: B
(ru) wrote: A good, gritty little exploi from the Corman era of likewise films. Most interesting for an early glimpse of Tommy Lee Jones at work. And he's great in this too! It's got its cheese, as all these films do, and some other B-movie issues here and there, but the story is great, the acting is good and they do a lot with their budgetary constraints. Not a classic of the genre, but certainly no stinker either.
(kr) wrote: Upon deciding the world is spoiled, two beauties named Julie decide to be spoiled too. The result is a psychedelic feminist romp full of subversive allegories about women reclaiming the apple, emasculation of phallic foods, blatant overconsumption, & the wake of destruction from merely being human. What seems on the surface as a surrealist misadventure is ultimately a deeply sobering think-piece about the future of our species. To simply say I loved this film is to not do it justice.
(es) wrote: Pretty silly and ridiculous monster movie about a group of scientists on a remote island studying nuclear fallout on it. Oh No! It's affected the Crabs! Soon the Crabs are of Humungous Size and begin attacking everyone, telepathically speaking to people and setting off dynamite while the cast try in vain to catch up trying to explain everything. Better movies like this out there I suppose, but fun to see Russell Johnson in pre-Gilligan's Island mode playing a... professor.
(kr) wrote: OK, I'm giving this Fritz Lang 1947 pic an extra half a star just for its weirdness. The whole thing is like a murky dream with Joan Bennett's mumbled voiceover murmuring over everything. She (nor we) can't quite understand what is going on in Michael Redgrave's head -- he recreates "murder rooms" in his house for fun! What drama there is revolves around the family relationships that inevitably reveal (yes, in Freudian style) what is beyond the "door" (both literal and figurative). Then, release.
(ru) wrote: Phenomenal. Ray is one of my favorite autobiographic movies. Jamie Foxx isn't playing Ray Charles. He IS Ray Charles. It's one of the greatest performances in the history of cinema. The movie is passionately made by Taylor Hackford and features beautiful cinematography.
(us) wrote: Never fails to stir emotions. Some truly poignant moments, such as Stan Gable's lament 'those nerds are a threat to our way of life' and stirring finale. Hard to pick a favourite scene but I would say Takashi's tricycle race victory, nerds banishment to the gymnasium and Lamar's winning javelin toss all compete.
(gb) wrote: Parkour! So this is about a young man that is struggling to get by (Taylor Lautner). He owes money to some dangerous people, he can't make rent, and there just isn't enough work at his job for him to get by. His luck may be about to change when he crosses paths with a group of Parkour burglars, as this appears to be a talent that comes to him naturally. It's not a big secret: Taylor Lautner's career hasn't exactly taken off after the conclusion of the Twilight franchise. Breaking Dawn Part 2 came out 3 years ago, and the only role he has to show for himself on the big screen is that of a college frat boy in Grown Ups 2 (which might be the absolute worst way to spend 100 minutes, take it from me). If he was a bigger draw, his career may have gone in a different direction, but now Tracers is finally here, a movie that fully showcases his athletic abilities if nothing else. I really didn't know much about this, and from the beginning, I thought this was going to be another Premium Rush, because Lautner essentially has the occupation that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had in that film. It isn't long before the movie makes the true purpose of why it exists known: to showcase the Parkour abilities of these actors, namely Lautner, but everybody here gets in on the action. If you aren't familiar with what Parkour is, it is just moving from point A to point B, navigating obstacles by either climbing or jumping over them. This movement gained traction from the French series District 13, but these also made their way to the States in the form of films like Takers and Brick Mansions. Tracers is very simple in story, but for what it is trying to do, it actually succeeds for the most part. Tracers is more stylish than what you may think, and where I award points is that it is actually shot in a way where you can tell what is going on. I don't know how much Lautner did his own stunts, but this movie is great at showing enough of his face so that you always buy that it is him in the moment. It's well-paced, constantly moving and enjoyable, but this is a Redbox special, so it isn't without its flaws. It's predictable, and Lautner is playing such a good guy, it's comical. Also, he goes from being a Parkour amateur to bonafide expert in a 3-minute montage, which is humorous, albeit necessary for brevity's sake. There's something about these characters darting in front of traffic and making the situation needlessly more dangerous than it needs to be that bothers me on a base level, but I was able to get past it. If you think that you may enjoy this based on this review, I would give this a shot, but if you don't think this is for you, steer clear, because it's not.
(gb) wrote: A decent independent film. The film is a mix of The Crow and I Spit On Your Grave, which resembles those films a little too much, but overall it's still entertaining. I think a bigger budget, some better camera work and perhaps a script re-write could have made this film something more.
