|70 T6||The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005) - Mar 05, 2016
"The makers of "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" have above all succeeded in avoiding turning in a one-joke film and instead offering a rather sweet, resonant comedy that doesn't run out of steam halfway through. Steve Carrell is very good in the titular role, aided by the highly enjoyable trio of Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Romany Malco, and a joyful Catherine Keener. Spicy comedy done right."
|80 T9||I'm All Right Jack (1959) - Aug 26, 2012
"A solid and surprisingly timeless take on unions and the struggle between management and workers, "I'm All Right Jack" is funny enough and very meaningful. Peter Sellers steals the show as always."
|90 T10||North by Northwest (1959) - Sep 20, 2011
""NBN" is one of Hitchcock's finest films. It's entertaining from start to finish, due to the brilliantly conceived action scenes, the charming romance, the witty humour and some spicy lines. A triumph for everyone involved."
|60 T4||Tropic Thunder (2008) - Jul 28, 2010
"I feel like it needed some time before really taking off, but at its best moments "Tropic Thunder" is characterized by technical competence, well-written dialogues and just pure OTT fun. It's not all smooth sailing though, in what is a rather uneven final product, but the final act alone, along with Robert Downey Jr.'s fine performance, Tom Cruise's show-stealing out-of-character guest appearance and a monumental Jack Black as Jeff Portnoy ensure Ben Stiller's (pseudo-)epic ends up a winner."
|20 T1||DownLove (2008) - Mar 20, 2011
|70 T6||The Wizard of Oz (1939) - Apr 16, 2016
"Joyful, beautifully made and well-acted, "The Wizard Of Oz" is a contagiously upbeat fairytale that can entertain children and adults alike. Personally, I thought that the allegorical aspects of the story and the sentimental end brought the film down a tad, but its visual, directorial and screenwriting charm is undeniable."
|80 T9||Husbands and Wives (1992) - Oct 11, 2013
"Although the film's themes are the same old Allen themes, the storytelling, direction and photography on display are quite groundbreaking. The interviews, hand-held camera and close-ups add realism and bring the viewer closer to the characters in an effortless way few films can. All the above, together with the fine cast (Davis stands out; Allen in his non-hysterical moments and Pollack are also quite good) and the cliche-free script, elevate this slightly uneven film to near-masterpiece."
|50 T2||Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) - Mar 08, 2016
"It is watchable and has its moments but it's bereft of big laughs and feels like a lot of its potential was wasted. It's also alarmingly worrying how you get crap, piss, farts and puke in, like, the first 20 minutes (sorry for the spoilers), and then all of a sudden you get lessons on life and friendship. What's even more alarmingly worrying is that half the time it actually works."
|70 T6||La Sortie des usines Lumière (1895) - Dec 16, 2010
"Really heartfelt. People working honestly in order to make a living, cooperating to achieve something."
|50 T2||The Legend of the Lone Ranger (1981) - Jul 19, 2015
"Just an average western, with a shamelessly middle-of-the-road script and indifferent cast. It's elevated only by a couple of scenes, including Cavandish's ambush and the final shoot-out, and by Jason Robards's enjoyable turn as president Ulysses S. Grant at the end of the film."
