40 19% The Others (2001) - Dec 10, 2009
""Hey! Remember that ghost flick by M. Night Sham-ma-hama-la a few years ago that made alotta bucks?" "Well, ehrm..." "Let's make it again!""
75 71% Days of Heaven (1978) - May 08, 2010
"One of the most beautifully shot films I have ever seen."
75 71% The Parallax View (1974) - Oct 13, 2010
"Solely focusing on pushing the plot forward, the film's main character is heavily underdeveloped, and one never fully understands the character's drive and motive power - just as Pakula has intended. The lack of character depth emphazises the film's overall cynicism as does the outstanding cinematography, reminiscent of Antonioni: Stunning scenery is filmed in long shots, keeping the audience emotional afar. A gloomy depiction of the paranoia that ruled America in the beginning of the 70's."
50 29% Going the Distance (2010) - Sep 13, 2010
"Provides a few laughs, but the film never levitates from the pool of mediocrity, into which the American rom-com seems to have dived. "
50 29% Evil (2003) - Jul 22, 2010
30 12% 127 Hours (2010) - Jan 07, 2011
"Boyle makes all the wrong decisions here. Not to lose our attention, he uses all cinematic means imaginable which in the end do nothing but annoy. More importantly, they create no sense of the terror and tediousness, the main character must feel in his grueling situation. In a film primarily consisting of one character in terrible distress, sympathy is key, and Boyle simply doesn't create it - in spite of Franco's fine performance. A Hollywood version of the much more intriguing 'Buried'."
30 12% Disturbia (2007) - Sep 03, 2010
"Rear Window ultra, ultra, ultra ... ultra light."
50 29% Lightning Over Water (1980) - Aug 23, 2010
"Wenders' talent shines through in a few pure and hauntingly beautiful scenes, but on the whole I found the film to be a bit tedious and not fulfilling its potential. "
80 82% A Woman Under the Influence (1974) - Jan 25, 2011
"Rowlands is simply outstanding. One of the greatest performances in the history of cinema."
80 82% Roger Dodger (2002) - Jul 13, 2010
"Great performances from the cast, especially Scott, and a nice and thorough visuel style. It's a shame director Kidd chose an optimistic ending, which doesn't seem to fit the film's tone and mood. Had the last five minutes ended on the cutting room floor, Roger Dodger would have been an indie masterpiece."
