"Charming little flick. Less to it than the Gump it emulates although rather than an endearing innocent humor from the main character we have a gruff cynical eastern European humor which certainly kept the film interesting. Gustaffson was great and his presence and delivery wonderful"
71 60% Victor Frankenstein (2015) - Jun 04, 2016
"It felt like a higher energy hammer film so of course i liked it. The story's additions to the tradition of frankenstein are interesting, though certainly more of the monster himself was called for. The characters aren't great, igor in particular as a character is stale, however radcliffe adds much more to igor than the script provides, and mcavoy is relentless and electric as frankenstein. Its a flashy bmovie and i can enjoy it as such"
80 76% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) - Sep 25, 2016
"Barely remember the 1st one so i went into this fresh. The colors are gorgeous & i missed half of the opening fight just admiring the palette.story is very kungfu movie simple yet the characters get great back story and embellishments that make them larger than the story itself.Good pacing for the action as well as good setpieces.choreography was very good for a wuxia & offered balanced mix between actual movies and wild wire work...though I've never been against properly done wire fu myself."
80 76% Obyknovennoye chudo (1978) - May 29, 2014
"madness, imagination, and romance. based on a play, zakharov aimed for a large theatrical feel and achieved it. the story is quite interesting and plays with fascinating themes. made me wish i knew russian because i can tell terrible amounts of dialogue are lost in translation with subtitles."
88 88% Where Eagles Dare (1968) - Oct 27, 2014
"I could say a lot about this spy action escapade adventure movie. I'll keep it to this: There's a brief, wonderful moment where Clint Eastwood dual wields machine guns."
81 79% The Lure (2015) - Dec 21, 2017
"Filled with timeless vibrancy, musical numbers that perfectly amplify the story and emotion and are downright fun, and that unique Polish cynicism towards life, The Lure is a one of a kind film that any cinephile should experience"
78 72% The Berlin File (2013) - Oct 16, 2014
"i only briefly looked at the plot before watching this so i was surprised it was actually an action film, and not a spy thriller with lackluster action scenes forced into it. the story is decent enough, it stops short of becoming complicated although i did have to really focus to understand everything...which prob means repeat viewings will be more fun. im a sucker for 25 minute action finales...but wow that was some great direction for the final shootout...and a pistol-whip fight scene!"
68 52% Pet Sematary (1989) - Sep 24, 2015
"If straight horror can be "feel good" then this is it. Gwynne is simply classic and i wish i had a neighbor like him and i aspire to be that neighbor when Im an old man. Good effects good pace a story that doesn't hold any surprises but in a comfort food kind of way. Plus plenty to enjoy laughing at such as midkiffs ATROCIOUS acting. Zombie toddler was nasty as hell"
79 74% The Promised Land (1975) - Mar 23, 2014
"My very first polish movie!! Had too much going on with too many characters for me to truly love it, but it was very good and the cast was lovely, particularly the chemistry between the three main actors. It's themes are not in the least bit subtle, but I doubt Wajda was going for subtle. Solid and appealing direction, I enjoyed the few oddball shots that livened things up here and there. There was a lot of dry humor in it, which I didn't expect at all going into it."
75 68% The Thief of Bagdad (1940) - Dec 21, 2015
"Its as goofy and madcap as a 40s fantasy can be, but that just makes it charming to me rather than stupid and childish. The effects are good for the time. I sought this out as a fan of old fantasy like sinbad and that one with basil rathbone dressed as a gypsy woman ( the magic sword) and was well pleased. Its also a bit of a history piece where you can see the days when color was the newest gimmick...and wow can this film get painfully colourful at times."
