    A pretty bad movie, but as an ex-Burton fanboy, I can't bring myself to hate it. The movie feels like Burton's honest attempt to return to his earlier, darker, weirder days -- before he became "Hot...

    As wonderful as this may be, I can give it only a mild yay.

    At time it feels more like television series, and constantly reminds me of the pedigree of people involved. Things seem to happen for a...

    Strangely I have no problem with that. Even though it has been over a decade, I still vividly remember my own sexual frustration, and how important sex is for a pubescent male. (The film anticipates...

    Here in Thailand, this and The Artist are in theater at the same time. I can't help but notice most of my friends tend to like either one but not both movies. Since I had no idea what Hugo was about,...

    As a tap dancer I have this huge bias towards it. What might be the movie's biggest flaw -- that tap dancing can cure even life's biggest problem like immortality -- clicks me the right way.

    The film is way too short. Like a 100-minute trailer taken out of 5-hour miniseries. It's made worse by being strangely -- I'll say, poorly -- edited. The characters gaze at the coast of America;...

    Radcliffe performs his macabre ritual with the music boxes. It fascinates me how people have a tendency to rationalize supernatural phenomena. The result is...

    My thought from the old thread:

    Competently done, but sadly so much potential is lost.

    The scare is very good though with a tint of unintentional humor. I can't help but notice the woman in...

    I love Rodriguez, and it still surprises me to these days how I find Machete so so subpar.

    Superb. I love it.

    I don't find the rape scene funny, but that's more because the tension of the whole movie doesn't allow much comedy in any scene. (Unlike, say, Tie me Up! Tie me Down! in which,...

    This is good, but also too damn bittersweet with a strong emphasis on bitter.

    Reading the thread, I just learned that the girl is supposed to be a daughter. Somehow, that makes it less sad.

    Aside from the alligator, I have no problem with material outside the cave. Much of that provides a context to how tremendous this discovery is: the birth of modern man, homo spiritualist, and...

    Immense cinema.

    I have a discussion with my friend whether it "looks" like a great artist's last movie -- whether it actually is is up to Tarr -- and I don't think so. In fact, its minimalism and...

    A lot are going on between Strong's and Firth's character. They are best friends; one is a spy; Firth's presumably negotiates with Clara to the...

    It's really hard to follow. Reading -- though not finishing -- the book beforehand helps. This movie is among the rare cases in which the adaptation surpasses the original.

    When I think about it, my favorite scene in the movie is also the most troublesome. That scene is near the end when July performs the dance using her boyfriend's shirt as a prop. The performance...

    Watched it twice already. Probably my favorite film of 2011. During the second viewing, though, I can't help but notice how transparent and mechanical the script is.

    The movie, as a whole, is...

    number8's "thrilling as fuck" is not an overstatement. I love it. The slapstick that worries me so in the trailer actually comes out very nice. Spielberg successfully combines the chaotic energy of...

    The Tempest seems exactly the project for Taymor, but man, does she screw this up.

    I like it that Taymor underplays the fantastic elements. If done right, this could have been one of those...
