Once again a great play turned into a "okay film" that doesn't give any reason why is this adaptation necessary. Every actor or actress is trying so hard to win that Academy Award and outact each other. It gets annoying very quickly.

People seem to love this borefest and I just don't get it. I love Hitchcock as much as the next person but check out underrated stuff like "Lifeboat". You can see the difference. Charachters in this film are boring, nothing happens and if you don't guess the ending then you haven't done your homework.

Technical stuff and acting aside there's not much to see in this film. Columbo is much more fun.

First good Alexander Payne movie that I've seen. Yep, I just don't care for this writing. He makes boring movies. But NEBRASKA isn't written by him. Now he shows his chops as a great actor's director. Performances are all amazing and this movie actually has some of the finest moments captured in motion pictures in years.

Black comedy meets drug-infused fever dream. Over-the-top comedy lacks a good villain and the weak ending leaves to wanting something different. Still solid 90's fun. I mean Gary Oldman was funny as hell but he wasn't the villain of the piece.

Christmas Holiday#2.

One of the best horror movies of all time. Creepy but also a very sad political commentary on Vietnam and PTSD. They made this movie while 'Nam was still going so they hided everything under "zombie" gimmick. And boy it works. This movie is just insane - and intense - allegory about what kind of mental and psychical damage wars leaves to the surviving veterans.

Text book example on how to build up weird stuff for the audience. Darkly comic and really weird one. Movie feels like a political allegory for social issues in Netherlands but I'm not an expert of that part of the globe so the symbolism went over my head.

"Verbal assassin, my architect pleases /
When I was twelve, I went to hell for snuffing Jesus /
Nasty Nas is a rebel to America" - NaS, "Live at the Barbeque" (Breaking Atoms)

"Life is parallel to Hell but I must maintain /
And be prosperous, though we live dangerous /
Cops could just arrest me, blaming us, we're held like hostages" - "NY State of Mind" (Illmatic)

'Nuff said. NaS is a good source for documentary. Overall Time Is Ilmmatic is the ultimate take on the classic record.

No wonder that the folk singers of the new era (like Suzanne Vega) kinda called this movie off because this isn't the sugary loveable warm love letter to the "golden" era. Coens movie is more of a bittersweet take about the ideology and the dreams of the era. Coens' film is not about nostalghia - Inside Llewyn Davis feels more real and honest.

Ang Lee's wonderful film is visually stunning film full of symbolism and child-like wonder. This movie most likely doesn't turn athiests into believers (or even agnostics) but movie has a great message and I'm all for it.

P.S. Okay, so the special effects company went bankrupt little after this film? This film looks good. That's all I have to say. And I'm a practical effects guy to the end.

James McAvoy is a beast here. He's carrying this annoying mess of a film. Kudos to Eddie Marsan - incredible performance.

The problem of Filth is that the story doesn't really carry through the lenght. It's all too familiar. All too gimmicky. Filth is quite good but never feels like a great film.

Byzantium (2012)
24.11.

Any movie that has a 16 year old girl-protagonist (well, 200 year old...nevermind) isn't my cup of tea. Any movie that has 16 year old girl sitting at beach with a skinny boy crying about how life is hard just isn't interesting to me.

Byzantium tries to be a deep poetic take of the vampire mythos but turns out to be a hollow, empty and just boring.

Sam Riley is a good actor. He's in this.

Hammer is active again and they are ruining their legacy. The Woman in Black is a classic tale but the movie is just mediocore at best. All the cliches, all the most unimaginative visuals and sounds are being used in this one. Harry Potter isn't actually bad in the film but he doesn't have much to do in the film. Just to look confused and scared.

This movie has sequence that involes a real life open heart surgery. Shit was scary. I need to stop eating junk. - As a giallo this is not good movie. As a cautionary tale a marvelous masterpiece. Director Demicheli has one jackpot under his belt "Ricco the Mean Machine" check that one out.

PS. More that I think about it, the whole surgery-scene is actually unique. There the hell you can see this stuff?

This was sold me as a horror movie - but it's the horrors of Disney World, the "happiest place in the world" where consumerism brainwashes kids and makes adults insane. So basically this is a comedy about the evils of corporate world. This one-joke movie isn't as clever as it thinks it is.

I love the story - it's italian sleaze at it's finest. Sick twisted serial killer kidnaps a girl that reminds his mother. Essentially he wants to have sex with his mother but is impotent. Killer and the kidnapped girl starts a weird relationship-game that ends with bloody results. Premise is solid good ol' italian sleaze but director Lenzi drops the ball! This was a supposed to be a kinky, not boring. - There's not enough sleaze or excitement.

I have to honest here. I didn't care about this film.

Truthfully there's nothing to be excited about. If listening 90 minutes of two people talking about a play and having a battle of the sexes is your idea of fun then watch this. Actors are good in their roles. I just couldn't care less about these characters. The problem is most likely in me than in Polanski's film.

Underrated gem from Pakula - the master of 70's paranoia thrillers. While Comes A Horseman isn't thriller but you can see why Pakula was attracted to the material. Comes A Horseman is revisionist "western" taking place in the 40's - at the end of second world war. Movie is all about times when banks took over and the American dream became polluted with greed.

I heard that this was supposed to be a bad film? - Nope. Not just all that memorable. Liked John Williams score and Bruce Dern was excelent. I guess Hitchcock started to loose his steam at the age of 76 because Family Plot doesn't have that classic Hitchcock-mood that the older stuff has.

Agreed that the new Robocop is not that bad. It's a very different Robocop film, and should be approached as that. It deals much more in serious/"realistic" themes and commentary, as opposed to simple dumb action, violence, satire and humour.. And I thought that element was handled rather well.

I see on your rating that I enjoyed it more than you, but it's by no means a terrible film, as some haters seems to think.
