|85 T10||This Is Spinal Tap (1984) - Jan 02, 2011
"A cinematic landmark, this work of fiction utilises the documentary form in a clever way. By letting its absurdities take place inside a seemingly rational world, the humorous effect is elevated to insurmountable heights. Simply brilliant. "We can't really talk now, we have to go wait for the limousine.""
|70 T7||Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask (1972) - Aug 23, 2010
"The different segments range from pure genius to mediocrity. I espacially enjoyed "What's My Perversion?" and the part where Woody plays a sperm cell. And of course the best bit of the film, Gene Wilder falling in love with an Armenian sheep. Yes, that last sentence is correct."
|50 T3||Love and Other Drugs (2010) - Feb 07, 2011
"I simply cannot rank it any lower. That would be cruel towards my future wife, Anne Hathaway."
|75 T8||Me and Orson Welles (2009) - Aug 12, 2010
"This overall charming film belongs to Christian McKay. In an outstanding way he has captivated Welles' behaviour and mannerisms perfectly without neglecting to give the character a touch of his own personality, which keeps the performance from becoming an imitation. The rest of cast - including boy wonder Efron - performs solidly. "
|20 T1||The Lovely Bones (2009) - May 08, 2010
"In many ways a completely horrendous film. The casting exemplifies this perfectly: A 30-year-old looking, Indian man is supposed to be the love interest of Saoirse Ronan, who at most looks 13 years old. Come on! Not to mention Ronan's in the film 'little sister', who obviously outages Ronan by far. The whole thing reeks of incredibility, so one can't help but distance oneself from the film and several scenes become involuntarily funny. Tucci isn't that good, and Wahlberg is once again terrible."
|75 T8||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."
|30 T2||The Wolfman (2010) - Mar 15, 2010
"Predictable from the first frame. "
|60 T5||Tron: Legacy (2010) - Jan 06, 2011
"Yes, the film is at times extremely poorly written and acted, the third act doesn't work, and some things are just plain weird (the partial usage of the Inception score, Jeff Bridges talking like The Dude). But what a world it creates. The Grid is simply mesmerizing, and the film greatly takes advantage of the unique possibilities of its universe to create spectacular and breathtaking action sequences. And who can resist the retro-fabolous Daft Punk-soundtrack? "
|60 T5||The A-Team (2010) - Jul 08, 2010
"Three scriptwriters and still the tank flying scene is in the final draft. The tank FLYING scene?! That aside, The A-Team is a fine and fun popcorn flick, espacially due to Patrick Wilson's stellar performance. "
|20 T1||Salt (2010) - Sep 10, 2010
"The film actually sets out pretty well, but the incredibilities take over and several scenes become involuntarily funny ("... enrage nine million Muslims!"). Oh, and the use of the name Tarkovsky in a film like this is god damn blasphemy. "
