"Nothing is more reliable than a man whose loyalties can be bought with hard cash."

I picked up a copy of The Ninth Gate and viewed it solely for the presence of Johnny Depp.

Depp is an accomplished actor whom I admire. He always chooses his film roles with great care; hence I was ambitious to see this one.

Roman Polanski is also an acclaimed director... read more

It was good. No, it was great. I just was kind of expecting more from a Johnny Depp movie.

The plot was original and creepy. Not so much scary, but it was more a thriller and had a spooky vibe to it. Basically Dean Corso, a rare book hunter who is hired by a demonologist to track down the other two remaining copies of a book he owns to examine them and authenticate his copy. Little ... read more

La curiosidad, el querer saber del mal, cuando no se esta preparado para ello puede ser el fin o el comienzo, siempre he dicho que uno debe conocer de las obras y armas y herramientas del mal, solo conocer para evitar no para usar, porque el mal consume más rapido la esencia de la personas que un virus

An all-expenses-paid international search for a rare copy of The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom brings an unscrupulous book dealer deep into a world of murder, double-dealing and satanic worship.

A good movie

“It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. In fact, I even saw the damned thing in the movie theater when it was released. Anyway, it tends to be considered a minor effort in Roman Polanski’s career, especially by his die-hard fans, and, I have to admit it, compared to his numerous masterpieces, it is nothing really amazing. Above all, the ending was really disappointing. Still, in spite of its obvious flaws, I thought that the whole thing was actually rather enjoyable. Indeed, in my opinion, it was an intriguing tale and Johnny Depp, who was back then considered a box-office poison (difficult to believe, ain't it?), delivered a solid performance. Still, I was very young when I saw it for the first time and there is a good chance I” read more

Almost a Complete review of Roman Polanski's work (21 movies items)

" Cast : Johnny Depp, Frank Langella, Lena Olin, Emmanuelle Seigner What was it about? A rare book dealer, while seeking out the last two copies of a demon text, gets drawn into a conspiracy with supernatural overtones. My two cents: It tends to be considered a minor effort, especially by Polanski's fans, and, I have to admit, compared to his numerous masterpieces, it is nothing really amazing, the ending was really disappointing for starters. Still, in spite of its obvious flaws, I found it "

Movies the giraffe watched: November 2012 (23 movies items)

"First viewing - Nov. 6th The Ninth Gate is 3/4 of a great film that sadly falls apart in the end. Depp does an excellent job here, and the atmosphere throughout is perfect. The story is pretty original & well-suited for Polanski. It's sort of a companion piece to Rosemary's Baby, but the ending seems like it was conceived by somebody else. It doesn't help that much of the time the effects aren't very good either...the ending looks more like what you'd see in a made-for-TV movie than a proper th"

Favorite Movies, Genre? what's that? (83 movies items)

"I never hear anyone talk about this movie and the ratings apparently suck (6.7??). As in a few other instances (ie I heart Huckabees) I feel like I must be either going or already be quite insane, this is a great movie and I can't believe more people don't see it. Maybe it's just some weird combination of things I like (books, historical fiction, detective stories, Johnny Depp, battles between good and evil) but I can watch this movie fairly often and enjoy it every time, a mark of a great movie"
