Ola G (ca) wrote: Adam (Adam Mediano), a directionless 16-year-old living in the working class US/Mexico border town of Marfa, Texas, who is approaching his seventeenth birthday in a matter of days. He is beginning to become sexually curious, hoping to get lucky with his sixteen-year-old girlfriend Inez (Mercedes Maxwell), who he trusts completely, but also being tempted with sex from numerous other people, including his twentysomething neighbor, an aggressive local artist and his high school teacher. While an unhinged, misogynistic border patrol agent watches over the neighbourhood. What ensues is a web of sex, drugs, and violence as the Latino skater punks adjust to their gritty, aimless life in the dead end town...Despite winning the award for best film at the Rome Film Festival, the major critical attention directed at "Marfa Girl" has generally been more lukewarm in its enthusiasm. Boyd van Hoeij of Variety praised the cinematography while directing criticism at the acting of some cast members and the generally shallow plot, mentioning that "the sex and nudity are as plentiful as the plot and teen characters are thin." Jordan Mintzer of The Hollywood Reporter praised some aspects of the dialogue and cinematography, but said that the cinematography was "nothing new" and looked at times as if "it was ripped out of a Levi's ad." "Marfa Girl" is classic Larry Clark turf with themes of destructive adolescent behaviour, broken families, teenage angst and sex. Meaning we have seen it before and theres nothing new under the sun. Frankly its quite interesting how Clark manages to be so static in his development as a director even if movies like "Kids", "Bully" and "Ken Park" were great films and has its place in the genre itself. But, how many times can we see the same topics being dragged out and dissected over and over by the same director? And in "Marfa Girl" Clark throws in a subplot concerning a misogynistic border patrol agent (a strong performance by Jeremy St. James) that sort of diverts the focus in a strange way. Theres strong topics and Clark manages to keep everything in a documentary style that works in certain scenes and in other it just becomes static, slow paced, bad and all the long pointless monologues are hardly that intriguing. And the acting is of course not spot on all the time, which I assume is what Clark wants. Theres impact, but less context. The person that stands out for me in "Marfa Girl" is the gorgeous and intriguing Drake Burnette who plays Marfa Girl. Her strong opinions, her will to explore her sexuality, her intellect, her beauty and her sexual glow.

I do like the idea of a whole Swat team and police unit taking on Victor Crowley, and the additions of Derek Mears and Zach Galligan are welcome. We also get the return of fan favorites Danielle Harris (who has significantly less to do here), Kane Hodder, the great Sig Haig (who KILLS IT in his one scene here), and Parry Shen (He's great here, as usual). While Hatchet 3 isn't the best of the trilogy, it is definitely the funniest of the three films. Hatchet 3 provides a decent ending to the Hatchet trilogy, and still makes for fun, gory viewing.

Dave J (de) wrote: Tuesday, December 13, 2011 (2008) Room 205 (Language spoken in Denmark with English subtitles) HORROR Female teenage student whose just moved into a University dorm and while their start to receive flashbacks that's related to an urban legend about a previous female student death that is somehow connected with the dorm of "Room 205"- hence the title! The audience is being kept in the dark about what happened until near the end! Inconsistent and conventional horror film with coincidences which lacks credibility raising alot of questions without answering them, such as "what makes this typical normal student chosen to be the one to get flashbacks from the dead girl without affecting any of the others whose stayed their longer than she has?", "What became of the other people who were their when this death occured to the dead girl who was once alive?" and finally "How or ever their ever was a cover up?" 1 out of 4 stars

Craig F (ag) wrote: It only takes 10 minutes to realize the only reason I'm still watching is to hopefully see more of Lucinda so it was incredibly disappointing that they chose not to bring the most intriguing character back in some way. Poor acting, camera work and awful CGI, particularly the flames and CGI train... really terrible work. Proyas avoids subtlety like it's a plague and reuses actresses to a laughable degree. The writers make the mistake of abandoning a potentially very simple plot direction with an array of broad questions in the first hour that, as a result, squander any interest I had from the first 5 minutes. Too bad all the answers are garbage.

Allan C (ru) wrote: One of the few Altman films I had not yet seen and I can't believe I hadn't seen it yet. I'd count this one among his best films. Great depression era atmosphere, excellent character development, and fine performances by all (especially Duvall and Carradine). A must see for Altman fans!

Terry C (kr) wrote: No-bullshit action thriller that delivers the adrenaline from start to finish, which is just over 80 minutes. Anyone having a nonsense prejudice against European/French cinema as unapproachable or pretentious has got to watch this film. And anyone looking for a fine piece of action cinema, or an alternative to a couple strong cups of coffee, will find it here as well.
