sublime

The finest piece of literature (Umberto Eco’s eponymous book) gave birth to one of the best thrillers ever directed.

Sean Connery’s performance confirms why he is such an astounding actor. Christian Slater in, I believe, his first role shines here.

But most importantly, the cinematography and set are sublime (and trust me, I am not biased because I personally knew... read more

Okay, but there is one very hot scene...

Wooo! Hot monk sex!

Well, there is the one scene with Adso (the young monk played by Christian Slater who claims he lost his virginity in this scene) and a peasant girl... It's actually surprisingly very sexy, probably because it's sort of real. It's awkward, strange and kind of weird. I think that's what's sexy about it: it's very different from the usual coreographed love scenes t... read more

A good movie

It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely check it out again at some point. To be honest, I haven’t read the book this movie was based on but it sounds pretty good and maybe I will check it out at some point. Anyway, back in those days, Jean-Jacques Annaud was definitely one of the best French directors at work and certainly the only one who managed to have such a ... read more

Description: 1327: after a mysterious death in a Benedictine Abbey, the monks are convinced that the apocalypse is coming. With the Abbey to play host to a council on the Franciscan's Order's belief that the Church should rid itself of wealth, William of Baskerville, a respected Franciscan monk, is asked to assist in determining the cause of the untimely death. Alas, more deaths occur as the investigation draws closer to uncovering the secret the Abbey wants hidden, and there is finally no stopping the Holy Inquisition from taking an active hand in the process. William and his young novice must race against time to prove the innocence of the ... (more)

" I kind of also bounced off this one. It's also not like a lot of other movies out there so I don't have a lot to compare it to. Definitely some really cool things in it, I liked the setting a lot and it had a lot of depth to it, I bet the book is a very interesting read. I found a copy of the movie that had German subtitles for the non-English parts, and since I took a little German in highschool I took the time to pause the movie and try to translate, which was pretty fun and I felt added a bi"

" O how I wish I were a Franciscan friar in 1327, having a dope tonsure and solving murder mysteries in a grotesque monastery while self-flagellating for my sins and eating gruel thrice daily. But alas... I can only see it on screen. In one of the weirdest adaptations in movie history. Do you visualize Christian Slater and Sean Connery when you think of chaste celibate moral monks? I do too. I was just laughing at this movie the whole way tbh, and especially amusing was Ron Perlman's performa"
