Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

We acknowledge that we did not expect much from 300 : Rise of an empire , but the film semi- beginners Noam Murro ( Smart People has only comedy to active) is sufficiently short , intense and spectacular to convince us that it is worth considering for some cinema seating . Eva Green is what's good in this film whose events take place simultaneously with those of 300, Zack Snyder's 2006 film short while King Leonidas ( Gerard Butler ) and those of his brave 300 goes to Thermopylae to cope with god King Xerxes of Persia ( Rodrigo Santoro ) , the Aegean Sea there is a confrontation between warlord Themistocles ( Sullivan Stapleton ) and his soldiers gathered from all the Greek city states of the Persian naval force led by unpredictable Artemisia ( Green ) . What in the first film became a life and death battle between the two forces incomparable now takes advantage of the sea , constantly changing environment that requires rapid adaptation of military strategy , a very good movie for adults , too much blood

Re: “Uneven Divergent better as romance than dystopian thriller, but Shailene Woodley makes a born leader

Production " divergent " seems sometimes keeps retention in progress Chapter characters . The fact that you have the starring Kate Winslet and do not take advantage of presence to shape a convincing antagonist can be a problem. Yet , in my opinion , to achieve a high potential for improvement Leitmotif fear that cross passages with characters being orchestrated quality. And how fear directs all the tools , I like that clear rules are established between rebellion, debt and liabilities . " Divergent " I train with some musical compositions embedded in the right context with perfect rhythm , finding formula ( almost) absolute for a film that promises to launch echoes in an area that the audience is quick to label it . A delight for a man who tests everything the dystopian universes can offer. Especially when relations between protagonists help you understand their posts , a good movie for the whole family

Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

Wow. JEALOUS MUCH???
So tired of reading the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit spewing from so obviously envious & understandably "jealous beyond reason" wannabes such as yourself Simon. Come on - will you guys EVER be able to truly give an honest review if the movie showcases a male specimen who is young, handsome, & fit? Geez! The movie was titled "300 - Rise of an Empire"!!! It was about some of the strongest, toughest, bravest men who ever existed (real or mythologically), & the battles they fought & the WAY they fought. It was rough, bloody, & raw. And yes, they were BEEFCAKES. We, the audience would expect NOTHING LESS!!! I guess if you had been the director/casting director, you would have made the movie, what??? Softer? Kinder? Less ROUGH? With a bunch of flabby ars actors limping along? Sorry. You are dead wrong on this one. Rather than 'green' with envy, I think you are 'blind' instead. Bone up on your Greek history, legends, mythology.....oh, and DEAL WITH IT!

Re: “Beefcake-loaded 300 sequel Rise of an Empire holds out for a gyro

Yeah pretty $h!t review. Not because I'm fanning over the film, but because of the blatantly adversarial approach (..and word choice(s) to the concept of the film and/or its subject.

Reminds me of a combat objector attending a war film and complaining about the violence during an assessment.

Really?

Re: “No excess baggage slows Neeson's thrill ride Non-Stop

Liam Neeson action movie star, play in the new action film full of suspense that takes place 40,000 feet in the air.
With all the risk of attracting the hatred of some, Liam Neeson is an action actor say this not only because the series but because Taken newest actor is posted in all sorts of action films, action thriller titled Non-Stop takes place on a transatlantic flight New York - London, where a U.S. Air Marshall named Bill Marks, played by Liam Neeson, must stop a mysterious terrorist threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes if the redemption request is not satisfied.
We demonstrate that the film looks as good and is as action packed as the other's previous collaboration with director Liam Neeson Collet-Serra in the movie Unknown, only this time the actor's trip might be a little more fun

Re: “No lava lost in crusty disaster movie Pompeii

Pompeii effects are like a volcano ( as in film) that erupts when sweeping everything in its path , superb battle in the arena is just a preparation for the flood to come and becomes more engaging when approaching an end. Although it seems that every scene is the maximum in this point of view , the next he could be more exciting than the last , everything is magnified by a 3D , although it seems useless at first, highly visible highlights and make you stay away the objects seem to come to you. This visual delight (maybe) would not have the same value if it was packaged very well in a story that raises blood , unleashing fixed action at the right time , and provides a totally unexpected end .

After Paul W. S. Anderson became known for the Resident Evil film series , and his name became inevitably associated with them , Pompeii should represent a new card to British director , for any director who hunt both box office success and satisfaction of the public and would like to have put on such a production CV .

Re: “12 O'Clock Boys and The Past deserve your time; Robocop should heed his Mirandas

In the movie Robocop Joel Kinnaman chosen most likely similar traits of Peter Weller manages to customize a different Robocop. On the one hand not exaggerate brought tribute dedicated to the character on screen after almost three decades, and on the other gives a distinct identity, leaving open the option for a sequel. Portuguese Padilha migrate cast films in his native language and the reboot "Robocop" is imposed as visionary filmmaker, but not necessarily original to reanimate a character looking through the archives, I recommend for the whole family

Re: “12 O'Clock Boys and The Past deserve your time; Robocop should heed his Mirandas

The Past (Le Passe ') although the subject seems to be too large to handle a long (2 hours and 10 minutes) , the director ( who also produced and A Separation - film being Oscar winner in 2012 category " best foreign Film " ) fails to develop all the characters well enough to create strong relationships between them , to surprise you with small twist sites when everything seemed to be clear in the film economy and , not least all to highlight all actors Berenice Bejo manages to impress increasingly more after his role in The Artist and this interpretation could be another young actress Oscar nomination for Elegance , naturalness and simplicity with which he succeeded in all the inserted thoughts, feelings ' character is outstanding , and the ease with which public memory emerges in previous roles , being supported by all others excellent actors , I recommend this movie for all

International media noted particularly fierce criticism sidelines Chinese domestic politics (corruption , social cleavages huge flaws of capitalism communism oriental reflections mixed with Maoist) , however , is not a political film (four episodes , only one has political issue ) but realistic investigation of Chinese society today , focusing on major social changes in the dynamics of the country. The same approach this practically inexhaustible themes we find in A Touch of Sin . The same realism penetrating deeply human and meditative same power dynamics accelerate enrollment of a country as half a continent, rapidly changing , the same ability to synthesis of very different social picture . Jia Zhangke is a name for the Chinese cinema today and is regarded , rightly , one of the most prominent directors in the world.
