|60 T7||Les MisÚrables (2012) - May 24, 2013
"I'm not a fan of musicals but this one is a quality work. The whole cast does a fine job and yes, IMO that includes Russell Crowe."
|50 T4||Thunderheart (1992) - May 24, 2013|
|60 T7||For Queen & Country (1988) - May 08, 2013|
|50 T4||The Mighty Quinn (1989) - May 08, 2013|
|58 T6||Devil in a Blue Dress (1995) - May 08, 2013
"Effective neo-noir which mixes the genre a bit by having a black male protagonist and showing 40's L.A. and racial issues from his point of view. It's fun to see Denzel and Cheadle in this kind of roles and they seem to enjoy themselves. Still, the film feels a bit of a missed opportunity as it follows genre cliches too closely instead of doing something truly different."
|67 T9||The Soft Skin (1964) - May 06, 2013
"One of my favorite Truffaut films and one of his "Hitchcockian" ones even though this is not a proper thriller. The protagonist is sort of an every man who falls for an air hostess and starts an affair. He doesn't really express his emotions and it's up to the viewer to decide what his motives are. Truffaut doesn't pick any sides and he gives enough screen time for all three parties: the wife, the mistress and the husband."
|62 T8||Iron Man 3 (2013) - May 03, 2013
"A big step up from Part 2 but I was still a bit disappointed as I hoped writer-director Black would hit a homerun. It feels as he was more interested in doing something else than a superhero movie as he comes up with ways to keep Stark off the suit. There are even shades of 80/90's buddy cop films here. He and co-writer Pearce have stuffed the script with too many people, things and jokes; not all of which work that well. I hope after this he gets the chance to do whatever he really wants."
|52 T4||The Killer Must Kill Again (1975) - Apr 29, 2013
"Unusual giallo in that sense that it reveals the killer within first minutes and doesn't really follow the usual conventions. It's also a surprisingly restrained film considering that director Cozzi later made scifi turkey StarCrash. Nothing earth-shattering but should be worth a watch for giallo fans in the mood for something different."
|47 T3||Above the Law (1988) - Apr 26, 2013
"Surprisingly serious debut from (surprisingly slim) Seagal. Also starring Pam Grier, Sharon Stone and Henry Silva. Effeciently directed by Davis but the film lacks that special something that would lift it to the ranks of better 80's action films."
|62 T8||The Place Beyond the Pines (2013) - Apr 19, 2013
"A bit like with Amores Perros, you're getting three films in one -- and like with AP -- I enjoyed the first story the most. That hurt the experience a bit. I felt that the middle part wais too generic and Cianfrance needed to cut corners to make his point and rush towards the ending in third part. Still, it's a very ambitious film with good cast. And, after Blue Valentine and this Cianfrance is a name to keep an eye on in the future."
