Beautiful tale beautifully told

I really appreciate that films like this one are still being made. It's a classic fairy tale (with a remarkable and haunting ending) without any noise or shrill effects. The graphics are also wonderfully simple like a beautiful animated book. And the content so much more meaningful than most other kid movies out there. I loved how slow and quiet the movie is and the way it's much closer to the way fairy tales used...

Was expecting to like this more

I was expecting to like this film .. it's really up my alley .. a little out there scifi-ish romance/drama with an indie vibe. But, I was simply bored by the film. It was still worth watching due to some of the stars in it (in particular Kate Winslet whom I adore), but the movie itself didn't work out for me. It may be because Jim Carrey is one of the few people out there that I truly utterly dislike (I think he...

Simply a very good film

I should probably rate this one with 5 stars as there is really nothing wrong with the film itself. In fact, it's everything a film should be .. wonderfully acted with convincing characters, a fantastic historical set design and a story that is captivating, thrilling and has some truly funny moments. I'm usually a bit of a grinch, but this one had me laughing out loud a few times. Yet, it is certainly no comedy,...

Nice thriller

This one probably doesn't truly deserve 4 stars as it's a good, but not great thriller. In all honesty, I just watched this (again) because Angelina Jolie is in it which certainly makes it a film worth watching. I think it's the kind of thriller that only works truly well if you don't know the story yet, but it's well thought out and there's rarely anything wrong with a good serial killer tale written by Jeffrey...

Nice ...

I think this film is nice enough. It's entertaining to watch and fits many of the requirements a good "indie" film should have. All of the actors/actresses are quite phenomenal, but that's also not surprising given who they are. There is just nothing really in the film that lifts it beyond being nice and somewhat entertaining. A good story (even though it seems to paint the guy as the bad one a little too much)...

Interesting if a little overly dramatic

A rather short and thrilling film for an Indian movie .. of course still complete with some strange music and highly dramatic emotional scenes. The story itself is globally interesting and the acting solid enough. I'm just having a bit of a hard time taking serious Indian films seriously due to their tendency to employ 80's style sound effects. Not a bad though.

I prefer the book, but it's still fun

I absolutely loved reading The Martian .. for once a scifi-thriller that does not shy away from explanations that actually make sense. While some of the action sequences may be a tiny little bit unrealistic, at least there is no complete scientific nonsense on a super trivial level in it. Sadly, the movie does just that .. it only hints at it all and leaves out all the interesting things. It's still a fun scifi...

Magnificent

While I don't think the film is perfect (I felt the last quarter of the film just didn't live up the the first 3), it is probably the best film I've seen this year. The cinematography is nothing but magnificent .. just breathtaking in so many ways. And the score!! I'm not sure I've witnessed such an intense and haunting score since "Das Boot" .. it's also equally thrilling and devastating in parts. I loved the way...

kind of lame

I expected to absolutely hate this film, but I was able to endure it. So, that makes it worth 2 stars for sure ;)
I found myself internally twitching into an almost smile every now and then, but that's about the extend of my amusement. It's just not a funny film and rather annoying in its lameness. Also, a little boring. Did I mention that I don't do comedy and I absolutely hate (as in HATE) The Life of Brian or...

Ha, some of us grow up faster than others. I still think this deserves its place as one of the best comedies ever. :)

It probably does! I have to admit, I'm just not much of a comedy person ... and it was much better than I thought it would be.

Nice and long

I rewatched this one yesterday and it's still a nice film. I love the music and the scenery. It's a little too brutal sometimes and simply a little too long.

Fun ...

I'd say the film delivers exactly what it promises. It's a fun-filled, big action movie with dinosaurs on a tropical island .. there's kids running away and outsmarting the (super-smart) dino, a big beefy guy saving the world and a pretty little woman screaming a lot and being generally useless. I liked the dinosaurs .. I probably would have preferred a dino-turned dystopia version with the dinos eating all the...

Charming and cruel

The film tells the story of a young Palestinian student falling in love with an Israeli lawyer. He is allowed to attend a class in Tel Aviv which gives them the chance to pursue their affair, but that permit is later revoked when he refuses to spy for the Israeli Security police. His own brother is also involved with terrorist groups in Ramallah. So, the setting is filled with tension that in my opinion didn't...

Certainly interesting ...

I think this is a movie that everyone should see, but only certain kind of people will love (sadly I am not one of those). It's a brilliantly inventive film that illustrates social conventions by turning them into a completely surrealistic play. I really like the idea of the film, but I also found it a little difficult to watch. And, I am not sure if there is any true sense in it .. I guess one has to find one's...

hmmmm

I wasn't expecting much from this film due to it being biblical and I just don't think those weird stories make a good movie plot. And, the movie was truly unbearably weird and awful. Some scenes were unbearable in their cruelty, others in their boringness. And, none of the wonderful actors/actresses in it were able to save even a shred of it.

What a ride

I'm quite surprised at how much I loved this film. I haven't seen the original Mad Max films in many years, but once upon a time I considered them to be somewhat cool. Fury Road manages to rise high above them in pretty much everything (if I remember correctly). It's truly a mad experience. Furiously insane. It's an endless crazy car chase and I usually hate car chases. At every turn, there is a new wonderful,...
