Re: “The new X-Men saga supplies what many comic-book movies lack: real emotion

I know they change the story lines when transposed to the big screen but this was originally in the comic book and it in itself was great. No spoilers here but I hope one particular female character is touched on that I have not seen in trailers.

Re: “The hit documentary Blackfish has a message as dubious as its methods

This "shut down SeaWorld" movement is wholly irrational, attempting to emply anthropomorphic terminology in discussing *animals*, i.e., "crazy," "crying," "unhappy."

Gotta believe it's mostly nagging wymyn and beta males behind this.

Re: “Avi Korine adapts Dostoyevsky's The Double into the blackest of office comedies

The newest movie that has as protagonist is a tragi- comedy called The Double strange , that Jesse plays a dual role . The film caught my attention particularly because director - Britain ( Norwegian mother , Nigerian father ) Richard Ayoade , who made one of the best teen movies that I've seen in recent years - Submarine . If you like dark humor then do not miss the series " Garth Marenghi 's Darkplace " (2004 ) dementia written , produced and directed by him in the parody series horror and science fiction 80s.

Re: “In Jim Jarmusch's vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive, it takes the unearthly to catalog our earthly delights

Never thought I'd find much poetry in a vampire movie ... A movie whose beauty is given for each frame , the slowness with which the action is carried out giving the viewer the opportunity to admire the props expressiveness meticulously chosen so that you completely absorbed and you integrate the vintage atmosphere , romantic , melancholy . Feel that you have entered a museum or an antique rather each object , full of energy footprints of those that has succeeded over time , he says only his own story .
Not only add value objects at visual film , and protagonists for special merit in creating the show. The scene where the two lovers are resting naked lying next to each other , touching - in my view - sublime.
Show picture and sound , thanks to the soundtrack which raises substantial quality cinematographic works . Listen to " Funnel Of Love" in interpreting Wanda Jackson and you will be convinced .
The film itself might go unnoticed vampire story is seemingly trivial , but Jim Jarmusch was able to print their own style , which gives a great artistic value .

We did the research. And you're wrong.

Are you people ever going to shut up about this?

Re: “The hit documentary Blackfish has a message as dubious as its methods

This is the most ridiculous article I have ever read. Clearly these authors have not done any research on this subject. SeaWorld's very own documents are available all over the internet that contradict every statement they have made publicly, including under oath, in response to the accusations made in the movie "Blackfish". Notably, one of the authors of this article is a former marine park employee. I would think that having a background in the care of animals would encourage due diligence in researching serious allegations against a publicly traded entertainment corporation involved in the care and breeding of animals. Shameful and disgusting. Please do your research before posting misinformed articles such as this!

Re: “First-rate Larry Brown adaptation Joe a reminder how good Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green can be

"Joe" is a comeback for "serious things" both Nicolas Cage and David Gordon Green, scored Indie Wire. Green most recently directed some comedies like "Pineapple Express," "Your Highness" and "The Sitter", but surprised last year with a different type of comedy - "Prince Avalanche".
The movie "Joe" is based on a novel by Larry Brown tells the story of a friendship that binds former inmate Joe with a boy of 15, from a broken family. "The film flirts with multiple genres - melodrama, comedy, story-maturing but ultimately closest of being the first western directed by Green" was written review of Indie Wire after last year's projection Venice Film Festival.

Re: “When a Spider-Man movie makes you want to punch Peter Parker, you've got trouble

"We're just waiting for it to be over, and praying that the inevitable sequel will be better."

I have no interest whatsoever in this movie. Rebooting Spider-Man for the TWILIGHT audience was not a good idea; I walked out of the last one in boredom, long before the end.

These movies are only being made because Sony has to produce a new Spider-Man movie every few years or lose the movie rights to Marvel/Disney. For that reason alone, there will be a Spider-Man movie every few years for the rest of my life. Ho hum.

Re: “First-rate Larry Brown adaptation Joe a reminder how good Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green can be

"By taking a pause from "transgressive" films like Pineapple Express, the director has found his way back to the true, hard work of real life."

This. This gets all the eye rolls.

Re: “Under the Skin a feat of human creativity that dares to approach the inhuman

I can not hide excitement about this film, so if you overdo the praise, I did not take it the wrong way, Under the Skin is screening a very good novel written by Michel Faber. The main character is Scarlett Johansson in the role of a sexy alien who travels on a highway in the Highlands of Scotland in search of lonely people that you seduce then send them on her planet, where human flesh is a delicacy. On the ground it comes in the guise of Laura, a seductive woman who uses her sexuality to capture muscular and lonely hitchhikers. Life on earth but a change and soon begins to be curious and drawn to the complexity of human conflict with his own race, a very good film

Re: “Wes Anderson packs everything for The Grand Budapest Hotel

Hotel Budapest looks like a huge hotel in the interwar period , all the details are carefully documented, and in brief covers when the action finishes up in the 60s , the colors and light are like a movie from the 60s . It is perhaps Anderson 's first film in which substance has caught up with visual imagination , in other words , the time when lush visual content is finally justified . The film is , if you will, a delirium controlled everything - from scenery , proper names , characters up how to shoot , fall under parody refined colors and threads If not "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is worth seeing for the performances accurate of all actors - especially Ralph Fiennes (who has the lead role ) . More than in other films, Wes Anderson manages to not lose your head and keep the lines tight game each player .
Although the story sparkles with humor , parody and fantasy interpretations are elastic but firm - do not become Cabotine any moment . It's a pleasure to see so many famous actors who work roles be accepted for two minutes. It seems like everyone was fun to film

Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

@Kimberly it could resolved in a second movie :D! The movie ends with class separation so we can only assume that, that is where everything will pick up if VM gets a sequel. I think this reviewer missed the first season. Sure there were some class discussion in season 1 (much like how it was lightly talked in the movie), but the second season was ALL about the 09ners and the PCHer war. This movie was PAID for by the fans. If this movie came out and it was some sort of lame attempt at a stand alone movie, what would the fans think - I can tell you I would feel like I wasted my money. Its for the marshmallows through and through and this reviewer doesn't get it.

Yes, Lubitsch. I also saw some Ophuls and Frank Borzage.

Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

I wonder if the person who wrote this review watched the movie. Most of it is detached from reality.

Re: “Big-screen Veronica Mars more enjoyable as a reunion than a movie

The only thing that is true in this HORRIFIC review is the fact that the class differences are muted. Seeing one of Veronica's trusted friends and confidants mowed down and shot by one of Veronica's mortal enemies is the only thing in the film that lacks resolution.
