(de) wrote: What can I say about this movie..hmmm...well it's a simple story really, the acting could've been better, the thrill....there really wasn't much thrill of it, pretty much just a nothing movie. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it a little bit but it was just too cheesy for me to want to watch it again. I was being generous with the rating. Nothing really reaches out to you in it. The ending was open ended which there could've been a sequel but it wasn't interesting enough to become sequel. Bottom line is I would not recommend this movie

(jp) wrote: This was one of the best movies I've ever seen. The theme of forgiveness was simply profound. Kinda gory but hey, what's a movie without a little blood, death and tears. I'd recommend this to anyone but young children.

(kr) wrote: OOO MYYYY GOD. This movie is soooo bad it is actually good. Will have you in stitches from how bad it is. Should be classed as a comedy. Seriously it's a must buy movie.
(au) wrote: I don't get the hype. It wasn't that realistic. Who falls in love so quickly with someone they've only met (slept with) twice? Everything else about the movie was great. The main loveline? Terrible.
(nl) wrote: Shot as a mondo film, Cannibal Holocaust remains as one of the most disturbing movies ever made and has inspired the found footage genre. The plot concerns a group of film-makers gone missing in the Amazon and the footage found that documented the last days of their lives when they encountered primitive tribes.The main selling point was the iconic "human stake" scene that was so real that people thought it was a snuff film in Italy. Other than that, most of the violence were done to the animals. The make up and special effects were so incredible even by today's standard but the gore was pretty fake sadly. It's not a film that you would want to watch again.

(au) wrote: Goofy, sentimental, stereotypical, predictable; Peter Yates and Steve Tesich somehow get all of these things right. Paul Dooley and Dennis Christopher are wonderful as father and son. A lively classical score paces the shenanigans.Con spirito, Lacrimoso, Espressivo !

(ag) wrote: Underrated Tom Hanks comedy from underrated director Joe Dante. The film takes place entirely on a neighborhood street in the suburbs where Hanks and his colorful neighbors become suspicious about their Boo Radley-like neighbors following the disappearance of one of their longtime neighbors. It's kind of a comic spin on "Rear Window" but the fun of this film is really in the cast an the playful storytellings. The cast includes Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Corey Feldman, Theodore and Courtney Gains and director Joe Dante's regular stock company of performers, including Rick Ducommun, Wendy Schaal, Henry Gibson, Brother Dick Miller, Robert Picardo and Rance Howard. Critically panned at the time and not really remember now, I think this film has a suburban charm that hasn't really been tried before or since. Dante compared the film to "Lifeboat" in that the film stayed entirely in the neighborhood and never left. Dante's regular composer Jerry Goldsmith provides the film a fine score. And I remember reading that there is a three hour cut of the film, which I'd be interested to see, but I'm suspecting I'll never get to see since this isn't a film the public seems to be clamoring for. And one interesting factoid from IMDB is that Arthur's poodle, Queenie, was played by the same poodle who played Precious in "Silence of the Lambs."
(de) wrote: First of all this review has nothing to do with my star rating, I liked the film because the way they interpret "Twilight"...I know it doesn't makes any sense but hang in there with me...I'm not a "Twilight" fan so I have to say this movie was good. The girl playing Becca plays Kristen so well. It mixes "Twilight" and "New Moon" very well. Spoof movies have gutter pretty bad lately but this one was kind of good, and stupid at the same time. So I hope you understand my review between the star rating and my review of the movie.
