Jayakrishnan R (ag) wrote: 81%Saw this on 29/5/14Warriors of the rainbow is a good action film and it's visuals are good for a Taiwanese film. The story is not so bad, so are the battle sequences scattered all over the film. The story is not that detailed even after having a detailed 2 and a half hours running time. The film doesn't drag and the important thing is that it shows good and bad on both sides. There are scenes in the blood sacrifice where the Seediq Bale kill the families including the children of the Japanese soldiers and the Japanese in the end leave the families of the warriors alive. The film's locations are impressive and it's a good watch.

Wiebke K (ag) wrote: Filmed in the stadium during the actual game, this is a great story -- the acting could be better, but just for the bizarre but nevertheless strangely cheerful setting, this one is worth watching.

Don S (de) wrote: Mostly pointless, depressing drama about how little family means to some members while still meaning thew world to others. Two brothers listen as their father and uncle fight over gold coins left to them both. Dad ends up pushing up daisies, and uncle sets out to to get the boys - who took the coins - because they are the only witnesses who can tie him to the crime. The dialogue is delivered too slowly, giving the movie a stifled feeling. Even Shiri Appleby, whose acting I really enjoy, was kinda just there in this movie. The ending is purposefully ambiguous. Not worth your time.

Blake P (jp) wrote: John Carpenter's damnation of the controlling mass media and the self-centered ruling class in 1988's terrific "They Live" might be wiggy - consider that the hero is played by a professional wrestler, that the film features one of the longest, most bizarre fight scenes in movie history, and that its understanding of physics is a shakier than my hands after drinking two cups of black coffee on an empty stomach - but wigginess doesn't always equal shoddiness and Carpenter wisely contemplates all the necessary precautions before going for deep-throated satire. Because the guy's apt and a dependable filmmaker when it comes to reinvention in the genres H.P. Lovecraft loved the most, just about everything about "They Live" is effective. It's broad, sure, but its mania is endearing, and Carpenter's cultural observations are so sharp and so solidified that the frenzy surrounding his full-bodied lampooning only polishes his stance. An abundance of self-seriousness and we'd have a no-fun arthouse feature, so welcome is "They Live's" pulp imitating cheekiness. The movie stars Roddy Piper as an unnamed, down-on-his-luck drifter (the closing credits refer to as "Nada") in the slums of Los Angeles looking for work. Shortly after a montage decides that finding a job ain't as easy a task as the bourgeoisie would think, Nada gets a construction gig that temporarily puts an end to his lack of prosperity. But Nada's world is rocked when the local shantytown is massacred by what appears to be law enforcement officials. With the attack coming hours after being a captive audience member to a blind preacher's (Raymond St. Jacques) ramblings about some form of world domination on the part of beings from outer space, things are awfully suspicious - especially so when Nada stumbles across a box of sunglasses left over in the wreckage. Moments after he puts a pair on, though, does the world, in a "Matrix" twist, become gnarled beyond belief. Through this new accessory does Nada see everyday existence for what it really is: a black-and-white wasteland where the upper class are vicious, very literal monsters controlling those beneath them through the media. Advertisements suddenly read "obey," "marry and reproduce" instead of "buy this computer," "travel to the Caribbean"; persons of interests are distinguished by their looking up like kids dressing up as Skeletor. Because it's unappealing to see a reality so frightening, Nada takes it upon himself to join a resistance group and fight the power. But since the patriarchy is much more dangerous than it's been cracked up to be all these years, the man, though burly and weary, may not be able to survive for as long as he'd figure himself to be able to. Perhaps no one would survive as for as long as Nada, however - what we have in him is an almost comically tough quasi-fighter who'd give Schwarzenegger a run for his money if his mullet didn't make him so distinctly uncool. "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass," he iconically proclaims to a group of fiends at one point during the film. "And I've just finished my bubblegum." If that isn't the best one-liner in an action movie and if Nada isn't the most underrated anti-hero since Franco Nero, then I'm Bruce Lee's cousin. So exquisite is the way Carpenter's so deftly able to make a durable, horror-tinged action comedy with as many perceptive tunings of social commentary as unfiltered stabs of delight. This is a perfect genre feature: death-defying, jam-packed, exciting, manic, and a little cheesy. "They Lives" is among Carpenter's finest films.

Irvin C (gb) wrote: Regarded as one of the greatest films in the Italian neo-realist movement and with good reason: It's a great film. It's an absolutely heartbreaking sad tale of two boys during post-war Italy whose friendship and lives are changed forever and definitely not for the better. I would rank this alongside "Bicycle Thieves" as among De Sica's masterpieces.
