When We Were Kings
It's 1974. Muhammad Ali is 32 and thought by many to be past his prime. George Foreman is ten years younger and the heavyweight champion of the world. Promoter Don King wants to make a name for himself and offers both fighters five million dollars apiece to fight one another, and when they accept, King has only to come up with the money.

King.

(ru) wrote: Still terrifying and fun to this day.
(ag) wrote: Skip it. This movie wasn't fair...for us, the viewers. It was a lame attempt at writing vampires with Twilight level feelings while trying to stick to the more well known rules of vampires. This felt like it was written by an out of touch 40 year old who's never actually been to a convention. There are so many flaws and inconsistencies. The best inconsistency is when the characters talk about how vampires have super strength, yet they turn and run from mortals and can't seem to open doors.
(ru) wrote: Well-scripted, plotted, acted, and directed, a highly atmospheric and sometimes creepy film akin in spirit and mood to Lynch's Twin Peaks.
(jp) wrote: Wanted to see this when it first came out, but heard many bad reviews on it. Picked it up on DVD for $4 and decided to give it a viewing. The clothing, sets, and most of the cinematography looked good. However, the screenplay, and the acting fall way short. De Plama attempts to make this into a Neo-Noir work, but just doesn't quite pull it off. Is the movie worth a watch? Sure; but don't expect a lot from this film.
(gb) wrote: There are really strong performances by all involved, but especially by David Strathairn and Rachel Weisz as the wounded, acerbic, drunken couple. The rest of the movie, in comparison to their performances alone, is tame, lackluster, and tiresome, but not a total failure. Just a mild curiosity.
(gb) wrote: This B-movie is such a waste of time. Why would any of the majority of the known actors/actresses star in this? Such as Fred Williamson, Richard Roundtree, and esp. Glenn Plummer. I was disappointed in these actors. I like vampires but the ones in the movie were ridiculous.
(nl) wrote: Some moments of genius and some moments of brilliance, just annoying that the main child actor is occasionally bloody annoying!
(gb) wrote: Beatiful characters, amazing scenery, fun and uplifting experience with a twist!
(nl) wrote: Slightly based on a true story regarding some pics of "fairies" related to Arthur Conan Doyle, this is a mystic and personal, intimate travel to faith. Not religious faith, as the film clearly states (you just have to see what the "father" does), but faith through something we all should have, PROOFS. Great soundtrack too.
(ag) wrote: It's hard to review this movie.... The End of Evangelion is sick, gory, and beautiful. The final two episodes of the controversial but popular Neon Genesis Evangelion TV Series brings the ultimate visual journey in my mind. I love animes, but most animes i have watched never truly amaze me, but EndOfEva is truly wonderful, the visual is over-the-top, rich and jaw-dropping, some scenes may feels too gory or explicit, hey, its Hideaki Anno you're messing with. EndOfEva is a must see for a hardcore fan of anime, or even you who don't like anime.

(br) wrote: It is good to know that silent films can be fun to watch and not just drug out boring affairs. Buster Keaton is marvelous in this wacky comedy. The last scene really got me laughing. Some amazing early effects are used and some nail biting camera tricks keep the viewers on the edge of their seats (at least as much as a silent film can keep a viewer on the edge of their seat). I have to say if you are looking to watch your first silent film this would be one that I would really recommend.
