This was an interesting, if maybe unnecessary, prequel to the Babylon 5 series. It was certainly nice to see the origin story of all of our favorite characters, even if some of them felt more like glorified cameos and some characters were curiously absent. But unfortunately, a lot of the interactions between characters felt a bit too coincidental and in many cases, it was unbelievable that characters would not later recognize each other. Overall, this movie is fairly entertaining, although it suffers from the same issues as most prequels - because we already know how the story will end, there is not much in which to get invested and real tension is difficult to come by.
This movie is the perfect mockumentary. It's funny in stupid ways and in clever ways and it's got endless quotable moments. The cast really brings it over the top; they all play off one another perfectly and the comedic timing is flawless. Taika Waititi is one of my favorite directors and this movie is an excellent showcase.
This is a wonderful film. The entire Helm's Deep sequence is incredibly impressive visually, on the level of Mad Max: Fury Road. The special effects are really well done for a 2002 movie, and the score is absolutely flawless. My favorite part of this film is the anticipation that builds for the battle at Helm's Deep; it really feels like the whole story is leading to that scene. My only complaints are that things feel a little rushed (and as a disclaimer, I watched the theatrical version, not the extended edition). Character motivations are often lacking, so a lot choices don't always make sense and character's seem to do this just for the sake of advancing the plot. Similarly, the character development all felt a bit rushed, especially compared to the wonderfully rich development found in the novel version. But overall, these are minor criticisms. This movie is still incredible.
This was such a fun movie! It's got a really long runtime so I expected it to drag on, but it's actually paced quite well and kept my interest throughout. It does a wonderful just of keeping you guessing, and just when you think you've started to figure it out, and twists around and throws you in a new direction. The acting is wonderful and Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Jr. were perfect for their roles. I'm thankful that it doesn't get bogged down with too much personal drama, so the focus stays mostly on the mystery at hand. Don't let the runtime intimidate you - this movie is intriguing and exciting throughout!
This was a very good and spooky movie. This was the first time I've gotten goosebumps from a movie in a long time - it does its reveals excellently and the imagery is disturbing, to say the least. A lovely merging of the haunted house and serial killer genres, The Devil's Candy builds tension to the point where it's almost too much, and then releases it perfectly. This is an excellent film if you don't mind being a little uncomfortable, but I had a blast.
