Re: Greatest B Movie!

I'd go with Touch of Evil, which is my favorite Welles film. What I love about this one is how, fifty years after it was made, it still looks modern in terms of direction. There's not a single shot...

In Bruges is my favorite film of the 2008 so far. I loved how it constantly shifted the tone from funny to dramatic to suspenseful, without ever alienating the audience. Characters are superbly...

Films which portray two camps in a conflict rarely give both an equal amount of on-screen time, and even more rarely refrain from blatantly passing moral judgment and taking side which...

Re: What does a good review include?

Of course, I agree with most that have been said in this thread - a review consisting simply of the movie's plot followed by a sentence or two describing its qualities or the lack thereof, should not...

Re: Why does everyone hate Brett Ratner?

I don't see people with torches anywhere trying to murder Brett Ratner, but it's true that he's getting much more criticism than some other equally mediocre directors. The reason for this is that he...

Re: THE worst movie of all time.

Having seen it just recently, at the moment I do consider Casino Royale to be the worst movie of all time. Tarkovsky's movies are an easier watch than this one. I have no idea at which point did any...

I want a four hour long SF epic, featuring three different intertwining storylines set against the backdrop of an intergalactic war. And I want spectacular action set-pieces. No? Pleeeeease!
