Good John Sayles film starring David Strathairn and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. I haven't seen many Sayles films, but this is a nice character study of a mother daughter relationship and the man that comes into their lives. It's got a beautiful Alaskan setting and it takes a great turn halfway through the film. Some great dialogue and I loved the ending.
Excellent Russian film about two young brothers who go on a fishing trip with their father who has just returned after 12 years of being gone. The younger brother has a hard time adjusting to his new father. Slow paced but very well made. The two young actors are very talented, and the father (who looks like a Russian Jeremy Irons) is good as well. Excellent final act.
Basically a serious, Spanish version of Children of the Corn, it starts a little slow, but it picks up pretty quickly. Itâ(TM)s got some pretty creepy moments, having all the kids seem like scenes from The Birds (and coincidentally, after watching the movie I read the trivia and it says thatâ(TM)s what the director was going for). Itâ(TM)s sort of one of those movies where the viewer knows pretty much exactly whatâ(TM)s going on while the two leads are clueless, yet somehow thereâ(TM)s still suspense. The scene where theyâ(TM)re trapped in the hotel room is especially freaky. The ending is especially good.
I was a bit hesitant to watch this film, but it turned out not being too bad. Greek film about a Greek myth involving a military leader who is forced to sacrifice his daugther to the gods in order to gain victory for his army. It starts out pretty slow with very little dialogue but once once the commanding Irene Papas shows up, it gets interesting and intriguing. The second half is dialogue heavy, or rather, drawn out, but it's still well done. The sets and costumes are good and the acting is all very well done, but like most myths, the story is very simply and predictable and the story is always so dragged on and everything needs to be explained in such extreme detail even though the concept is so simple.
Well, I'd never seen a Charlie Chan film, so I wanted to check one out. Short, funny, and clever, it's got witty dialogue and some good laughs. Too bad I think I started with one of his best, because looking at his other films, they haven't gotten the great reviews. Anyway, Boris Karloff is an opera singer who esapes from an insane asylum and makes his way to the opera and some murders start happening. To be honest, most the time while watching this I couldn't help but think of Peter Sellers in Murder by Death, and he nailed the impersonation (well, so did the screenwriters with the sidekick son). I'll probably check out a coule more of the Chan films.
