I expected everyone to come up with this great derogative quip after I saw the movie but not enough people have.
The first new film I've seen in quite a while that demands to be seen on the big screen. The first film I have ever seen that demands to be seen in 3D (a format that detracts in most cases, with this movie as the major exception.)
Both a sprawling epic and a touching character piece. Here we have a top candidate for restoration as the available prints are shoddy and only hint at the visual splendor as it must have appeared in its initial run.
Another great film undone by a terrible ending (still worth watch for Julianne Moore's flawless performance.)
Why so serious?
Before Midnight never steps wrong or feels anything less than authentic. It’s a natural progression of the characters after another 9 years and, yes, this is exactly what would happen with these two. Taken together, this trilogy is one of the miracles of modern cinema. Hollywood is not supposed to be able to get romance and relationships this right.
Why yes! I would like my romances to be fully expressionistic and filled with amazing set pieces that recall directors like Murnau and Von Sternberg. Greatest use of fireworks ever is also a bonus.
Saw this at a bad movie festival. Made the other bad movies look good by comparison.
Interesting. With each Bourne film, the direction and action sequences get better and better, yet they keep rehashing the same story. The results are three increasingly well made films, that don’t reach greatness due to their limited imagination in the story department.
Similar in theme and ambition to Synecdoche New York (art as a metaphor for life), but the tone is far more chaotic and comic, allowing for eccentricities in both visuals and charcterization to flourish. Asks some very interesting questions of what we expect films to do for us. The ending will leave some jaws on the floor, but it really was perfect for this film.
This one's frustrating. Such a promising premise that unwinds wonderfully with top notch performances. All the makings of a great film, somewhat undone by an over-intrusive score and a lame ending.
Better than I thought it would be, but nowhere near as great as it would have been if I were 13.
The "magic" may seem dated, but the joy expressed by the magician performing is timeless.
Really funny and with Lang's visual gifts intact, this was a surprise threat that really needs to be scne by Lang fans and those who like a good screwball comedy.
Does anyone else still automatically think of this every time the lesbian movie is brought up?
Does anyone know who sings the "Take A Look Around You" theme song?
If you've never read comic books when you were 10 and wonder what the fuss was all about, this movie pretty much reproduces the experience. Whedon's 2012 output is pretty damn amazing.
By any traditional standards a bad film, yet the pure physical atmosphere in capturing the Dark Ages battle and magic is so vivid that much can be forgiven.
If Sam Worthington can't fill Harry Hamlin's shoes, who's can he fill? Dull, lifeless cartoon looking GCI is no replacement for stop motion model work that can reflect a great artist at work. Ray Harryhausen remains the man.
Most effective comedic attack on bigotry since Blazing Saddles.
Cameron Crowe made a great movie last year and it had nothing to do with a fucking zoo.
