The animation didn't quite grab me and the tale is told satisfactorily enough but this is by no means a classic. That said, my wife and my nieces loved it.
Ummmm, no. Let this one run one late night as I did other stuff and even then, it was less than entertaining. My love of all things Tarantino kept it on to see if a funny moment could pop out of this spoof. One didn't.
Weak, all over the place storyline never gets out of it's own way.
As a zombie lover, I really wanted to like this but I didn't. Missed all the marks, offensively bad writing, and just flat, flat, flat. Bad makeup, lousy gore, not scary, not funny, and not heart pounding. Other than that.....
Intentionally tugs at your heartstrings with orphans no less and boy do they milk the cute Minions. But they know it and are obviously having fun and it translates to the watcher. Just have fun with it and even with a predictable ending, it is clever. In the word's of one of the characters.... "IT'S SOOOOO FLUFFY", but with many layers and just the right amount of fluff.
Enjoyable film that treads some of the same water as Despicable Me. A few memorable lines and of course, playful intervention of Superman storyline. Fun for the kids, adults can get a few chuckles out of the references. Nothing I'll remember forever but a lil heart goes a long way to Tighten the story. Besides, they had me at Super-Villian!
The originals were often watched by me as a kid and while updated to contain more action, this has that same "feel".
Stark, bleak, interesting story that falls apart at the end counters a superb performance by Daniel Day-Lewis who continues to show how he dominates the darker roles.
OK I was late to the party because I really just wasn't interested in this movie. Still hearing all the hype, I finally got around to seeing Avatar. Interesting version of a story told before in some way or another. I could have done without the "Save the Planet" hammer over the head but sometimes a movie is registered in other ways. I've heard it characterized as breathless and it truly is pure magic in regards to movie making. The world is meticulously crafted and the colors pop.Cameron always seems to lead the pack in innovation and this is another giant step forward. Now I wish I had broke down for the 3D thatre experience.
Schlockiness at it's best. Most people won't appreciate this tribute to the B-Movie animal attacks boom of the 70s/80s. Remember this is a remake of a Roger Corman (King of the so bad it's good) ode to Jaws. It even features a great cameo itself. However you shouldn't take this movie seriously because it doesn't take itself seriously.Alexandre Aja just went for pure fun, a quick but forgettable pick me up that pokes fun at itself as well as all the remakes that try to be "new". Piranha 3D foregos all else to say here I am, T&A and gore out the wazoo. Feel me bite.
Tough act to follow as I LOVED the original Swedish version but I will say BRAVO. Thank you for showing the Americans can make a solid remake of a good foreign film. Bigger budget leads to bigger effects and earlier satisfaction but I miss what's left to the imagination in the beginning half of the original. Still holds true to most of what I coveted from Let The Right One In while foregoing the bleakness of the Swedish version to build even more upon the main character.
Oh Ralph Macchio how I miss you. I think it was his overall awkwardness that made the original endearing. Jaden Smith seems..underwhelming and not really an underdog. Slightly different but close enough to the 80's classic to be put in a body bag.
Can't say much without giving away too much but strange, hypnotic at times, but ultimately wrong man, just wrong and I had already stopped caring.
