The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
Inside Llewyn Davis
Every generation gets the Ripper who best fulfills its fantasies, and ours fatten on vast conspiracies.
| Original Score: 3/4
Gruesome, predictable Jack the Ripper retelling.
| Original Score: 3/5
Moore might not be merrier, but this is far from offal.
The problem with this film is that Jack the Ripper takes a backseat to the dull and terrible romance between Depp's policeman character and Heather Graham's prostitute character.
| Original Score: 1/4
See it for the stunning visuals and Depp's performance rather than a factual re-telling -- if you can stomach it.
Anyone expecting the combo of Allen and Albert Hughes and the famed Victorian serial-killer to result in a gritty, stygian, skin-crawling horror movie will be severely disappointed
Somehow, the movie taps into the book's uncanny implication that the very air is charged with malevolent ancient spirits...
| Original Score: 4/5
Without a script on which to hang their vision, the brothers can only technically succeed. And, for better or worse, they do.
This is a film that should probably go back where it came from.
| Original Score: C-
This wry, atmospheric procedural spawned by a real mystery would be thorny enough without also being an adaptation.
A disappointingly conventional thriller from the Hughes brothers (Menace II Society still their best film by far), neither chilling enough as a horror flick nor compelling as a character study; one of Johnny Depp's few mediocre performances
| Original Score: C
A rare, clever, horror film.
Jack the Ripper has proven a far more durable movie baddie than Freddy, Jason and Hannibal combined.
Fitfully arresting late night entertainment.
This movie is beautiful to look at, but has little substance. All Depp and no depth.
They want it to feel like one really bad dream ... and by the film's end we're too dizzy to think, to see if it all lines up.
| Original Score: D
What the Hughes Brothers have done in making a lavish period piece complete ...... is nothing less than a revolutionary achievement.
| Original Score: 3
Some of the lines seem a bit over-the-top and the ending is improbable and schmaltzy, but it's a true Hollywood period film. Sit back and enjoy!
| Original Score: 2/4
As From Hell sprints toward its climax, the tone grows more grim, the violence more explicit and the conspiracies more shrill.
| Original Score: 2/4
The Hughes Brothers and their cast have taken Alan Moore's graphic novel of the same name and made it into one of the better bloody shockers of recent years.
