A good movie

3 years, 7 months ago at May 4 14:16
Obviously, since it was the last movie directed by Paul Verhoeven which I hadn't seen yet, of course, I was really eager to watch it. For Verhoeven, it was definitely a milestone since it was the first movie he made outside the Netherlands and it was just before he went to Hollywood directing such movies like 'Robocop', 'Total Recall', 'Basic Instinct', 'Showgirls', 'Starship Troopers' and 'Hollow... read more

Movie Reviews (751-800) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: It is a gritty, realistic and disturbing portrait of the Middle Ages where death is everywhere and where everyone has to be selfish bastards or degrade themselves in order to survive. It is an underrated masterpiece that deserve a second looking especially now as people go "Game of Thrones" crazy since this is similar but without the fantasy elements. Jennifer Jason Leigh in full frontal nudity prime. Doesn't do any compromises and none has the Hollywood stereotypical hero with sympath"

Film Journal - January 2014 (98 movies items)

"  If you're looking for a Hollywoodish movie, about the medieval ages, then this is not that film. Outside of The Name of The Rose, it's one of the more realistic movies, to take place in that period. That being said, it's a pretty decent, well made movie, that's not the most easiest film to watch."

Movie Diary 2014 (204 movies items)

"11.1. Ihan hienoa, että heti ensimmäisellä amerikkalaisella tuotannollaan Verhoeven perseilee tällä kertaa kommarivihan kustannuksella. Hauerin palkkasoturijoukko pukeutuu punaisiin ja vannoo jakavansa kaiken keskenään, mutta heti Hauerin sooloillessa asiat saavat kohtalokkaita käänteitä. Katsoja on joka tapauksessa näiden roistojen puolella, koska he ovat hahmoina huomattavasti värikkäämpiä kuin lordi sotilaineen. Lopussa ei valitettavasti nähdä vitsiä kruunaavaa punch linea "

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"9.1. (DVD) En oikein lämpiä enää tässä iässä näille eeppisille ritarileffoille. Flesh & Bloodin syötti on kuitenkin sen todella, siis todella armoton ja Hollywoodille nöyristelemätön ajankuvaus, johon on tunnuttu tungetun kaikki keskiajan kurjuudet rutosta järjettömään murhaamiseen ja kristinuskon terroriin. Kukaan ei tässä elokuvassa ole hyvis, jopa Rutger Hauerin esittämä päähenkilö on sanansa syövä raiskaaja. Aika inhottava pätkä, mutta eipä tästä mitään ruus"

"9th January, on DVD Not a bad Verhoeven film, but it's not really all that special or memorable. It has fun, over-the-top moments but in terms of story it's a very typical medieval themed film. I don't believe that I'll get too much out of Flesh & Blood after this viewing and I doubt I'll see it again. But you'll definitely get some enjoyment out of this."

Incredible Movies That Should Be WAY More Famous (52 movies items)

" The film's title is an antiquity allusion to the phrase "sex and violence," and it fully lives up to that with an abundance of gore and perversion. This is probably my favourite period picture because it's an honest, low down, gritty view of the plague-ridden middle ages."

A Complete review of Paul Verhoeven's work (14 movies items)

" Cast : Rutger Hauer, Jennifer Jason Leigh What was it about? A band of medieval mercenaries take revenge on a noble lord who decides not to pay them by kidnapping the betrothed of the noble's son. As the plague and warfare cut a swathe of destruction throughout the land, the mercenaries hole up in a castle and await their fate. My two cents: It was another milestone in Verhoven's career since it was his first English-language film, the first movie he made outside the Netherlands"

"22.5 DVD Verhoevenin keskiaikakuvaus ei ole juuri millään tavalla eeppinen tai ylhäinen tapaus, sillä suurin osa elokuvasta koostuu lähinnä siitä, kuinka Rutger Hauer & kumppanit rellestävät keskiaikatyyliin, ja siitä kuinka Jennifer Jason Leighin saatanan tyhmä, tai mukavasti sanottuna naiivi neito ei osaa päättää renttu Rutgerin ja kouluttautuneemman Tom Burlinsonin välillä. Ihan jees oli, pidin siitä kuinka tästä ei juuri löydä hyviksiä tai pahiksia, ja tuo ns. pääos"
