London Policeman: We may believe there are no Battling Burrows, striking the helpless with brutal whip - but do we not ourselves use the whip of unkind words and deeds? So, perhaps, Battling may even carry the message of warning.
Martha: I disgust me! You know, there's only been one man in my whole life that has ever made me happy. You know that?
Martha: George, my husband. George, who is out somewhere in the dark, who is good to me, whom i revile, who keeps learning the games we play as quickly as I can change them, who can make me happy and I do not wish to be happy. George and Martha...sad, sad, sad. Whom I will not forgive for having seen me and having said - Yes, this will do. Who has made the hideously hurting, the insulting mistake of loving ME and must be punished for it. Some day, some night, some stupid liquor-ridden night, I will go too far and I'll either break the man's neck or I'll push him for good, which is what I deserve.
Totally uninteresting and awfully dated, The Quiet Man has beautiful Technicolor cinematography and that's about all there is to it. The rest is boring and dated melodrama which does not hold attention at all and which makes you wonder how could it have been nominated for the 'coveted' Best Picture. This 'joyous Oscar nominee' is a movie made only for rednecks.
Incredibly funny and unbelievably involving, 8 Femmes is a black comedy done with bravura. The character development is outstanding, every one of those eight women has a personality, motif and a back story. The film is also very bold with its lesbian scenes, the ending is unexpected and truly fantastic, the social context is evident and although the music tend to diminish the film as a whole (the characters just burst into song in most awkward of moments) and one could make a point that it is unnecessary, it is nonetheless a joyful ride thanks to superb acting, strong characterization and extremely funny jokes. 8 Femmes is a memorable, strange, disctinct picture and a cult movie for a reason.
Its music is tonally inconsistent and too varied and the pacing is sometimes slow, but that music is also often very beautiful, the acting is great and the film is a pleasant mix of genres. But what makes Lootera stand out is its romance and especially ending which is incredibly poetic, romantic and, in a word, fascinating. It is one of the most romantic films ever put together.
Its animation is dazzling and unexpectedly artistic at times, the emotional presence is evident, its time travel plot is a lot of fun and although the humor is hit or miss and the plot can often get pretentiously convoluted, Mr. Peabody and Sherman wholly benefits from solid pacing and the story which is pleasantly reminiscent of older animated films thus ends up being a stupendous film by all means and a welcome return to form from Dreamworks Animation after last year's lackluster features.
It is very flawed and uneven and not always as engaging as it should have been, but Night of the Living Dead benefits from superb black-and-white cinematography, excellent effects and atmosphere, fine score and truly memorable and terrifying last act. In the end, even though it somehow fails to live up to its reputation, it is still a horror picture done right and a very memorable experience.
