Very mediocre plot, with no explanation what was going on or why, and with extraneous baddies of whom we have no idea how they fit in to the story. The sound quality made understanding the actors difficult, especially the inexplicably popular Sam Worthington who mumbles his way through the movie. He really is a Woodentop!
(fr) wrote: The sequel is getting more emotional--I praise how the Japanese investigators showed their emotion, like sympathy to their detainee, unlike typical FBI or CIA. Other scenes to which I could refer are when Light asked Ryuk to call the entire police staff and Mr. Yagami bade L the final farewell--anyway, I think that L's performance had been improving here. With regard to the story itself, L's instinct started to be strange; not viable.As many fragments forgotten, such as Misa's motive to help Kira and Jealous backing up her life, I really like how the movie visualization brought them back.Last but not least, without prejudice to the quality, the scene production seems getting more complicated than the prequel, e.g. falling motorcycle and painful death of Kiyomi Takada. Viewers may also notice the production team excellence in coordinating massive people.

Anthologies tend to be hit and miss per short and Creepshow is no different, but even the weaker segments are entertaining. Check it out if you love horror films and don't mind camp.

Of course, Hilton's fantasy/utopia is framed on the literary theme that a disparate group of travelers thrown together have unusual experiences together and separately. Remember Chaucer, for example? Hilton's novel allows the reader breathing space to visualize at will the characters and settings. Translating the novel into the film medium proved frustrating for Capra and all concerned. --However, today's audiences should not quickly dismiss it as old-fashioned schlock. In spite of what might be considered heavy-handed and obvious bits of dialogue, the quest for a civilized, peaceful existence is movingly presented. Surely it remains one of the best products of Hollywood and thanks to Capra it went on to be of interest globally. The struggle was definitely worth it.

It has its slow moments (which magnify the 2 1/2-hour runtime) but discovering the choice that Sophie has to make is a cinematic rite of passage. Meryl Streep's Oscar-winning performance is nothing short of perfection. The demanding role required her to perfect a Polish accent, speak in multiple languages, and interpret one character throughout several phases of life. She visually transitions between a vibrant woman, an ill immigrant, and a prisoner with a shaved head in a concentration camp. The accent is so impeccable that you constantly forget that this is an American actress, and she does it all while expressing an incredible depth of emotion. For everything that this film lacks in pacing, it is redeemed through Streep's flawless performance that may very well be the greatest of all time. Kevin Kline manages to keep up with her through his multifaceted character, making his highs very high and his lows devastatingly low. The main disappointment of the film is Peter MacNicol. I find his character to be an annoying third wheel that lacks emotion in highly emotional situations. He doesn't undergo the transformation that he should and is easily overshadowed by Kline and Streep. Even though the main character is a complete dud, the film creates several amazing moments such as the romantic piano sequence, Kline's two irrational outbursts, and obviously all of the concentration camp scenes. I feel that these moments are some of the best ever produced and yet, I agree with the fact that the film was not nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. It is beautiful to watch but there is a lot of dead space. The foul-mouthed female character that dates Stingo (whose I can't even identify by name because she isn't important enough to be mentioned in any synopsis) could have been completely written out and saved us 15 minutes. There is enough occurring in the present and in the flashbacks that we do not need irrelevant deviations to lengthen the film. "Sophie's Choice" can be a tough film because of its slow pace but Streep's performance and the secret that is revealed at the end make it worth pushing through. You will never forget "the scene" for as long as you live.

Even considering her scattershot performance and unearned emotional moments, the writing was sharp enough to keep me interested. As far as top 5 films from 2014 though, this isn't one.
