The Story of Seabiscuit torrent reviews
(de) wrote: This movie is 1 HR. 40 MIN. long...and there is barely a full 60 seconds worth of dialog in it. So, that makes it a bit annoying. However, the scenery is amazing, and I kind of give respect to the director for telling a story like this without a whole lot of words being spoken. It does have some suspense, but having people rarely speak, loses some of the realism. Sophie Lowe is an actress to keep an eye on though, the girl has talent!
(br) wrote: With the film taking place in the country and it starring Tyler Labine, you'll really expect a Tucker and Dale vs Evil feel. If you stay away from that, Cottage Country is somewhat passable.
(it) wrote: story: the movie had basically no thing called story. so one would feel that its just dragged. but the 2nd half towards end the story picks up and we feel that its not new. 4/10 execution: when there is no proper story who would care about executing it. so it just earns a bit. 3/10 direction: debut director has done very well here. but the movie should have got nice story to show the capabilities of a director. however as a debutant he did his job. 8/10 screenplay and camera : screenplay was catchy and not dull. it was very rich with vibrant colors. camera angling was effective and did good job in actions sequences. 8/10 casting: ravi teja excelled as don seenu. his comic timing seemed very good. shriya also played well. srihari and shayaji did very good roles as dons. rest did well. the only disappointment is the lack of strong villain. 7/10 music and background score: 2 numbers were good. rest were average. but the background score by manisharma is really good and strongly picks up in action episodes. 7/10 editing : the editing is good. scenes are perfectly edited to keep the thrill ride. some disappointment towards climax. 8/10 cinematography and production values: cinematography is good capturing the beauty of swizz and some parts of india.. during the first song the locations are perfect. production values are just made equal and worthy. 18/20 entertainment value: the movie is full entertainment . forget the story and just focus on the screen comic timing by ravi teja in 1st half and brahmanandam in 2nd half. 8/10 final verdict: don seenu is a perfect entertainer with all elements. it will become a success if public expects entertainment. for people who expect a story and some really driving scenes just skip it.
(jp) wrote: Five shorts from a five-director team make up this brilliant portrait of Ceausescu's Romania, each of them revealing a sad truth about how tough life was but coming at it from a whimsical and vaguely nostalgic angle. (The title refers, of course, to what the dictator himself named the time during which he ruled, and is used ironically, here.) We start in a small town, in which the residents go to pains to prepare for a government visit; then, we move inside the party machine and follow a photographer as he bungles an official photo while trying to both make his superiors proud (idealogues, all of them) and hit the deadline for the morning paper. A young woman gets in league with an attractive scammer who loves watching Bonnie and Clyde in a story that feels a lot like Badlands. A family gets the pig it was promised, but instead of it being already butchered, it's delivered alive to their tiny apartment. And finally, we follow a truck driver transporting chickens for export in order to afford to buy eggs, in an attempt to give his wife the one thing she wants and maybe restore the love to their marriage. Each vignette closes with a fairy tale-esque ending - though none of them are "they lived happily ever after" - and a moral, making the fusion of folktale and urban legend complete and providing a window into the difficulties of life in 1980s Romania. The acting is a little weak in places (you can tell even if you don't speak Romanian), and on the whole the film feels a bit too long (nearly two and a half hours), but Cristian Mungiu is a rising star of cinema and this work does not otherwise disappoint. Definitely a film maker to keep an eye on - I have a feeling he's going to get a big U.S. or U.K. or French budget and wow us one day soon.

(fr) wrote: If you didn't like Swades, I should just rest my case!Swades is by no means an India(n)-centric movie. It is about a man who feels for his country, his people. It transcends any nationalist barriers into love for his country.
(br) wrote: Always great to watch these books come to life, but as a standalone movie I imagine this could be a real headache for those virgin muggles out there. The reveal during the Chamber scene where Ginny has been committing all the acts, possessed by Tom Riddle? It's not explained thoroughly, and it's not foreshadowed enough, and it comes off like an awkward plot hole filler. Unfortunately Rowling's writing is driven by these twists, and original as they may be, they are ultimately quite detrimental to the plot.

(ru) wrote: Not nearly as memorable as the original, but not all that bad. There aren't quite as many death sequences in this film as there are in the original, which makes for long boring moments in between them. Some of Price's overdubs stick out like a sore thumb this time around, as well. The story is less interesting this time around, as there isn't quite as much to do with the original plot. It is certainly squirm-inducing in spots and there are some hilarious one-liners, but I think I prefer to see the original more than this sequel.

(ag) wrote: 87%Watched this on 18/3/15Master and commander: The far side of the world is indeed an epic attempt from Peter Weir, the director of Truman Show, but was overlooked mostly due to another epic, LOTR: Return of the king. Not only is it packed with action, but it also portrays the life of the crew and it's leaders in the most realistic way despite being adapted from a fiction book. Yet again the pair of Russel Crowe and Paul Bettany has succeeded in providing top notch performances. Peter Weir's direction, the cinematography( especially this) and the sound editing are the best features of the film.
(ru) wrote: 87%Watched this on 19/11/15Well shot, with a moving background score, sensible dialogue, a realistic story and above all fine performances especially from Thornton and child actor Lucas Black, Sling Blade is a memorable yet predictable drama film. The realistic life situations and the relation between Thornton and the boy's character makes the film rather special.
(gb) wrote: What a wonderful, fun family film. Right off the bat, you've just got to love a movie where Michelle Pfeiffer gets ugly and Robert De Niro gets light in the loafer. Unlike many films, Stardust gets into the plot right up front. Not a lot of long, drawn out character development. But nevertheless, the characters are developed well enough throughout the rest of the film to keep one warm, connected, and caring. Of course you've got standard love / fantasy fair, bad brothers seeking fame and glory and the crown above all else, getting their comeuppance, as well as the self-focused romantic interest of the lead. And yes, our hero ends up with the girl, but not the spoiled unworthy one, of course, but the beautiful and powerful one who in being loved for who she is achieves greatest power. You've seen the love fantasy plots before. The evil witches also get their just desserts in the end. With such a star studded cast, great characters, action, and visual appeal, and even Gandalf as narrator, Stardust is a sure fire hit for all the family.
