The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo is phenomenal.
Rose la vie, if men acknowledge that it is always others that die, then it is time that the politics came to the front. The message post men could send different postals.
Seriously? A perfectionist? That is why the people were sprayed with bullets in the face and the "good guys" never got so much as a scratch while the bad guys were dead in one hit? There was no explanation of this. Even as a dream it made no sense from the explantion of people feeling it, thinking it, experiencing it as real...especially the ones who didn't yet know they were in a dream, yet if they would experience it as "real", certainly being sprayed with gunfire would have caused flesh penetration, death, etc.
There we so many logic flaws in it. For a guy who did the brilliant Memento, I was disappointed in Inception. Granted, it was better than many movies over the past few months, but a disappointment from what I expected. It copied a lot from Total Recall and The Matrix, wasted a lot of time on repeated scenes of the dead wife (we already got the message).
They did spend a lot of time explaining, which they really didn't need to. It was pretty easy to follow...unlike Memento which really made you think, was confusing, etc.
I did like the ending, mainly because people were debating did it mean he chose her reality or the real reality...it left questions there which is always fun, and I left with a totally different impression of the ending than the rest of my party.
Overall, it was a fairly good movie, but far from Nolan's best work and tons of flaws in it.
I love this review! Very accurate, said what all REAL critics think about this AWFUL movie in a comical way. I had to pause a few times cause I was laughing too much! :)
It was great!
The best spent ticket i have paid for in a long time!
Maybe it is a costal thing, but I just saw this film in San Francisco and was totally mesmerized. Tilda Swinton is able to convey ideas and emotion with less effort than any other actor around. You never see her "acting." The director has a mastery of pacing that kept me hanging on every moment. Her supporting cast was phenomenal. That the settings, music and yes, the food seemed to exist in a hightened reality did not seem to me to be pretentious, but more a stylistic choice to create a canvas upon which the action and human conflict had greater impact. Needless to say, I would recommend it.
I just saw this movie in Manhattan. It is possibly the worst movie I have seen in a long time. It was pretentious clap trap. Don't waste your money seeing it.
Michael Paul Stephanson and George Hardy turned a miserable defeat into a success with this documentary about Troll 2. I laughed through most of the move and thought how well Stephanson's direction, editing and pacing were well done. The director was smart to focus on Hardy and not on himself, as actor/dentist George Hardy is the best loved character in the cast and the film. Also of notable mention was Stephanson's Skype interview that The Loft displayed on the big screen. When the Loft Cinema's Program Director Jeff Yanc turned the laptop's camera towards the audience, and Michael's face lit up with happiness. I found the Best Worst Movie extremely funny, and I found myself smitten with the documentary.
My review of Splice, a Review of a Modern Day Prometheus
Highly recommend everyone watch Mary and Max.
Ill bet any amount of money that every comment on here talking trashon the movie and saying it sucks was probably written by the same guy who wrote this article. Seriously, the author of this article says the movie is boring and there are no lively moments? And that for the uninitiated people who have never read the books will experience hair loss or whatever else he said - this guy is a moron in every sense of the word. Up until the first twilight movie came into theaters I had never heard of the twilight series books, not once ever. I had heard about the movie but never saw previews and didnt know anything about it. My girlfriend hadnt read the books either but saw a couple previews on tv (remember i had never heard of the books and had never seen any previews) After my girlfriend saw the previews on tv she basically had to drag me there. So once we got to the theater i decided to just suck it up and watch the movie since i knew it would make my gf happy. You wanna know what happens next? My eyes were glued on the theater screen - right when it got over i begged my girlfriend to stay and watch the next showtime just to see what we catch the 2nd time around that we missed the first - on our way home i immediately stopped by barnes and noble bookstore and bought all 4 twilight books. Immediately once i got home I sat down on my bed and basically read the whole rest of the day and night only stopping for some snacks , cigarettes, and using the bathroom. Within the time period from the first twilight movie coming into theaters to when the second one came into theaters i probably read all 4 books 20 different times and saw the movie probably 10 times, and the same went for new moon (and for new moon i waited in line for like 10 hours to have good seats) Just because i gave the movie a chance with not knowing anything at all about it - it got me hooked, obsessed. so seriously dont sit there and try and say that uninitiated people who only go off the movie will get hair loss, because that is nothing close to the truth in every sense of the world. you say this movie sucks and that rob and kristen cant act? well maybe you should do some research and see how much money all 4 books have taken in and how much money twilight and new moon have taken in - also do some research on how many fans (all ages) are addicted to twilight. there is a reason movies make a ton of money, thats because there good. so honestly you should delete this article if possible because all its doing is making you sound retarded. the twilight sage is AMAZING in every sense of the world.
p.s. your probably just talking crap on the twilight saga because your some 20 - 30 - 40 year old, etc. (or however old you are) small weak little boy whos trying to convince his readers that hes a macho bad boy, because in your eyes any guy that likes the twilight saga this much must be gay and all i have to say is that yes there probably are some gay guys obsessed with twilight but also i would bet any amount of money that more than 75% of the guys age 18 and older that are obsessed with twilight are 100% straight. so what if twilight is a vampire love story? guys like it because its extremely good and fun to watch and read, not because there gay, because its extremely good.
thanks buddy for reading this, cant wait to hear back what you have to say back to this comment
Your review is AWESOME, i'd rather read your review all ove again for the next 130 minutes then to watch twilight again, totally agree with that Taylor Lautner is sweeeet!!
I saw this movie and it was hillarious. Not intentionally of course. And personally I would have been happier if Bella and Edward had taken this moive (and the next few) off and the whole movie (and the movies to come) were about the fabulousness of Taylor Lautner's abs.
"With such an odd subject at her disposal"??? WHAT is so "odd" about the great Townes Van Zandt? Maybe to some surface-level prole who doesn't understand (or is frightened by) real, great art, maybe Townes and his work might be "odd" or inaccessible, but I have a hard time digesting anything in this review.
By the way: you're the one who is wrong; Townes was the greatest songwriter ever!
A movie about an illegal alien attempting to obtain citizenship by marrying a U.S. citizen? How cute.
Meanwhile, in Arizona...
Hey...good call. Definitely should've flip-flopped the wedding.
I agree! Samantha was totally cringe-worthy in this film... I had to cover my eyes & mouth many times she came on the screen acting like a 12 year old, or talking like a dirty whore. The part where she goes nuts after she drops her bag (and subsequently condoms) in the market, is embarrassing! Liza's act was the best part of the movie, and my main thought was that the gay wedding should have been at the end instead of the start, so to leave some sort of good impression before the credits roll.
Usually when you pan directors you come up with your own insults and whether I disagree, you are original and entertaining. But calling Michael Moore's editing manipulative? That has been used so many times that there are five patents out on it. I think you owe someone money for that one. And when you call Error Morris "self-serving" because he has a style only makes you sound like a jealous film school drop out.
Otherwise, I agree that Gibney is the best of the three, but they all have their place. I hope everyone goes to see this one. It is appalling and diminishes any hope in our democracy that I had left, almost.
Dear Dr. Grimm
As usual you hit the nail on the head, this time with Dune. It is an abysmal movie and a great descecration of one of the great classics of science fiction.
For readers who want to see (parts of) the Dune Series in video, the DVDs to get are the SciFi (yeah, I know they changed the name by they rarely show real sci-fi anymore either) Channel's two mini-series Dune and the sequel, Children of Dune.
Info on Dune at: http://www.amazon.com/Herberts-Sci-Fi-Mini…
and Children of Dune at: http://www.amazon.com/Herberts-Sci-Fi-Mini…
The first is out of print and can be found cheaper on eBay (Korean re-issues). I found used copies at a number of places on Google's shopbot.
I have nothing to gain from any of the sellers. Just passing the info along for those interested and those who care.
These two sets are light years better that the Lynch version and probably as good as it gets, unless some producer wants to bankroll a Star Wars series (full - the whole 9) size and type production.
This has to be the funniest, most brilliant review I've ever read...
"and the pale-face makeup and hairdo make him look like some sort of anemic hipster clown."
I'm still laughing...
