"The unique staging, visuals and jarring narrative structure make for many iconic and memorable scenes. Watching this film is kind of like looking at an M.C. Escher lithograph; you are puzzled for a moment, then fascinated as you take it in, then suddenly it gets old. Not enough substance for a film to stand on in my opinion. Mediocre story, unrewarding interactions, too much nonsense, etc. Flaws are still flaws even if done intentionally."
|69 T7||His Girl Friday (1940) - Mar 18, 2017
"Would have been better if Cary Grant's character got what was coming to him."
|60 T5||Jumper (2008) - Mar 16, 2017|
|59 T5||Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) - Mar 16, 2017
"An epic and iconic adventure, but a bit too juvenile. Fun characters, but all caricatures. So many plot, logic, continuity and common sense holes that utterly ruin otherwise charming or exciting scenes. Utterly baffling logic throughout. The coat hanger sequence was the highlight. If it wasn't for the gore, would make a great kids film."
|85 T9||A Man for All Seasons (1966) - Mar 15, 2017
"A convincing piece of historical fiction with some philosophical depth. Great casting, costumes, dialog, settings, themes. Has many memorable scenes including the logistics of boating around London which was novel to see in a film. There is some historical inaccuracy and it gets a bit dry from time to time. The characters lack significant arcs, but have well defined motivations and some depth which made their interactions interesting."
|39 T3||The Manchurian Candidate (1962) - Mar 08, 2017
"An intriguing plot, but riddled with major flaws. Massive plot holes, farcical situations and coincidences, some terribly conceived scenes and bizarre dialog keeps the story from being believable or taken seriously."
