Can the American critics give two very talented bad boy actors a positive review? Of course not! This is a very cool film...for it`'s historical content alone. Solid performances from the aforementioned protagonists!
The best Rodin film yet...but that is not saying much when one surveys all of the movies that have been made to date about my favourite sculptor. A much better Camille Claudel here than in previous versions. Very abrupt ending with too much left unresolved.
It's a bit of a Hollywood stretch to say that she "invented" frequency hopping, when the technology was already being used by Philips in a home remote-control device. She certainly was not the first person to patent the idea. That she recognized that it could be applied to torpedoes to defeat the Germans in WW2 certainly was imaginative and visionary. The sad story was that she was turned into a Methamphetamine addict by an unscrupulous "doctor".
A pulp thriller shot in Newfoundland. Stephen Lang is looking a little older than his character in Avatar, but still delivers a forceful performance. Breathtaking scenery. Homage to a family's will to survive and protect each other.
For me it added a new historical perspective to understanding modern India & Pakistan. A real tear-jerker at the end as well.
I will say one thing for Ridley Scott: He sure knows how to make great films! Absolutely riveting film, sumptuous at times through the cinematography. Excellent casting and solid performances all around. This is top-notch film-making.
Gary Oldman gives a Tour De Force performance as Sir Winston Churchill...the de facto spiritual and political leader of the Western World who rose to oppose the tyranny of Nazism and the maniac tyrant Adolf Hitler
Wow...very interesting documentary. Today I look at LSD as being pretty bad shit...but back in my youth it was a mind opener that truly did "open my doors of perception". I believe in therapeutic use of it's organic counterparts in full plant form.nevertheless...these chemists were pretty amazing dudes.
The original Blade Runner was one of the seminal Sci-Fi films of the '80's...cementing the career of director Ridley Scott and based on the book by Philip K. Dick :"Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"...the haunting and eerie music was composed by the master Vangelis. This film captures the feel of the original, but I am left with many unanswered questions by the end.
Much better than these reviews suggest! Pure entertainment and I thought...actually one of the better entries in the franchise. For someone who grew up looking forward to
The Wonderful World of Disney" every Sunday night at 6 p.m. on the CBC...it did not disappoint!
This resonates with me in a huge way...because the majority of time my activities are dedicated to reversing the negative habits that I had from being raised in a fundamentally diseased culture. Growing your own food, making medicine from herbs, exercise and therapeutic disciplines...these activities are what life is about!
A mostly Canadian film from a french director that is entertaining, light and even has some romance. But then any film that is not largely produced by the American industry usually gets bad reviews here...especially if it's Sci-Fi!
A creepy and melancholic Canadian film pretending to be American. Shot entirely in Manitoba, Forgettable, but watchable nonetheless.
You will never see a more whacked-out (or enjoyable) film of this sort...I can guarantee it! From the Chilean director who wrote the original script for Dune and was infamous early in his film career for El Topo & The Holy Mountain. This one is autobiographical as the artist is in his late eighties and many of the characters in his Fassbinder-style troupe are played by his own sons & friends. What a Swan Song! Will Alejandro Jodorowsky have another gem of a film or two to bestow upon us during his late period? I surely hope so!
Wonderful gem of a foreign film! You can safely ignore the reviews here from American critics...who wouldn't know culture if it bit them in the ass!
At first I thought this was a kid's movie...but as it moved along there was enough to keep me interested...recalling growing up as a kid reading SpiderMan comics. Micheal Keaton does a great job as the villain and notable but subdued cameos from Iron Man a.k.a. Robert Downey Jr.
This film really illustrates how the madness of mankind often prevails in spite of the dominant religious paradigm of the time.
That was awesome! Totally not what I expected...but why did Caesar sound like the Dark Knight & The Colonel seem to reference Colonel Kurtz so much?! lol
Only 58 when he died from lung cancer from a lifetime of smoking cigarettes. What a shame. His mother played Indian music to him whilst he laid in her womb.
Great to see a film that fills in the gaps of history regarding those odd people of the Netherlands...lol. Fantastic period battle scenes!
