Cronos

Cronos is an enchanting and beautiful film to watch, but it left me constantly longing to be allowed to submerge myself deeper into the magical world that its characters stumbled into. As a result i was left never feeling quite satisfied.
I didn't receive a single fright, but that was ok, because its dark comedy and odd quirks took center stage instead.
A lovely storyline and beaut... read more

Disappointing- & Unworthy of Criterion

"Cronos" is a film that starts out promising, then kills itself dead much to the horror of the viewer. Director Guillermo Del Toro is one of today's most impressive filmmakers, but even he couldn't resuscitate this dud after a certain point.

Initially, we are given an interesting premise- pleasant, aging antiques dealer Jesus (Frederico Luppi, who would later go on to play in Del... read more

A good movie

Since it was the last movie directed by Guillermo del Toro which I hadn't seen yet, I was of course really eager to check it out. Later on, I also discovered that it was, at the time, the most expensive movie ever made in Mexico which is quite surprising since it was del Toro's first directing feature. Well, to be honest, like most of the movies made by this director, even though I thought it was ... read more

In 1535, an alchemist builds an extraordinary mechanism encapsulated into a small golden device. The invention, designed to convey eternal life to its owner, survives its maker until 1997, when it shows up with an antiques dealer. Fascinated with the strange device, Gris doesn't note that there's more than one person looking for it. The promise of eternal life has become an obsession for old and sick Mr. De la Guardia. He and his nephew will do anything to get the Chronos Invention.

"First viewing - Mar. 17th I've wanted to check out Cronos for a long time now, so I was pretty hyped to find it on Max. And hey, it's pretty entertaining. The film serves as a neat twist on the vampire tale, which I mostly dug. The acting is good, the effects are impressive at times, there's some dark humor I enjoyed, and it kept me guessing as to where it was going next. It's not quite great, but I could watch it again."

" What is the secret to eternal life? Why, human blood, of course. So if you wanna live forever, try becoming a gosh-to-honest vampire. But, as we all know by now (from watching movies like this one), there comes quite a high price to pay for becoming an eternal bloodsucker. A price that kinda gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "get busy living or get busy dying". "
