Edit: No. It is in fact 888 Rue de Paradis (1992) also Henri Verneuil. The baklava scene...

I donít approve of judging anything about a film except the quality of the finished product. Itís just not a good film, which is why this is such a hot topic. With other controversial films like The...

Well, my problem with it as a story was that there is no rape or rape fantasy either. Itís as if someone wanted to think of a rape fantasy where the Ďvictimí actually comes to anticipate the rape...

I donít think that is what these half-baked narratives aim to achieve. Why would we feel sorry for either of them? They end up together, for what itís worth. I felt sorry for myself for having...

I think Parasite requires you to work your mind a little harder, whereas 365 Dni is something you could easily cook to. But I agree that the foreign language is an impediment. Honestly, though, you...

Oh, they sure can. But thatís what those types of women are turned on by. These films, including 50 Shades, are marketed to women. The book 365 Dni was written by a woman, and so is most of that...

Passengers (2016)

1/5

Not much to say. Fancy CGI when Jennifer Lawrence is trapped in a floating ball of water, but thatís about all I can praise.
