Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Epic in scope, though intimate in effect.
| Original Score: 81/100
Earnest and solemn, The Good Erath, based on Pearl Buck's Pulitzer prize-winning best-seller, is a typical MGM "prestige" literary adaptation, honoring Luise Rainer with a second (undeserved) Best Actress Oscar.
| Original Score: B-
No harmful false note is struck.
more of a time capsule than a great piece of filmmaking
| Original Score: 3.5/5
It's a typically lumbering, cautious, overblown Thalberg project, saved by Rainer's genuinely moving, Oscar-winning portrayal of Chinese peasantry, and by an immensely spectacular storm of locusts.
It somehow worked, and was a remarkable tribute to MGM's dream factory.
Once again Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has enriched the screen with a superb translation of a literary classic.
| Original Score: 5/5
Gorgeously photographed, beautifully acted.
| Original Score: 4/5
Critical opinion has not been kind, but studio excavators may find much to admire.
| Original Score: 3/5
