|60 41%||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. "
|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. "
|50 29%||Evil (2003) - Jul 22, 2010|
|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%||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. "
|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."
|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'."
|20 6%||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."
|20 6%||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. "
|70 60%||The Doors (1991) - Aug 24, 2010
"Kilmer's performance is a tour de force of sheer brilliance, but the film is too long. Stone drags out many of the concert scenes to the point of annoyance, which reflects many of The Doors' long songs. However, in that art form it works, not on the big screen. "
