dings on Bad Education (2004)
I've rarely seen a film so bitter.

thaklos on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
This film explores twenty something culture with visionary style, incisive commentary, and refreshingly whimsical comedy. Scott Pilgrim, in a surprisingly apt performance by Cera, assumes a disaffected demeanour even as he is painfully invested in the world around him. While the film's visuals stand out, I was struck by how personal it is, and delighted by the effectiveness of its extended video game metaphor, which beautifully captured tribulations of young romance.

Derekstar on The Reader (2008)
I found this movie to be slightly better than average. Not particularly memorable, and sure as shit not Oscar worthy. There's really not much to say. It's pretty straight forward. The only interesting thing thematically going on here is the attempt to humanize SS soldiers, but that attempt pretty much crosses from sub-text to actual text. Not very clever. I could recommend the film for the performances I suppose, but the story isn't anything to get excited about.

I think the direction and screenwriting were a bit off.

Gilles_de_Rais on Inception (2010)
Great, great movie! Apart from the ending but I guess it's a commercial necessity these days to leave things unresolved. I think some of the issues related to imaginary worlds were borrowed from the cyber-punk genre... except that the matrix and AIs are replaced by dreams and the subconscious. Nonetheless - Pretty awesome stuff! 8.5 would be my score.

Spunkie on The Girl from Monday (2005)
Hartley got on the spot for a minute there. Rest is extremely dull with overbearing sensuality.

whatismyname on Returner (2002)
Borrowed concepts and inspired by Transformers, Matrix, Independence Day, E.T., Predator, but I couldn't stop watching. Takeshi Kaneshiro and Yukiko Okamoto were great even with the crappy storyline and somewhat decent action scenes.

magb on Varsity Blues (1999)
Sports movie. That's all I need to say here. Serious sports movies always try to focus on the "redemptive", "transcendent" aspects of sports, but they never succeed. Why do they keep trying? And then there's the cliches and the character stereotypes. To be fair, the script and acting are slightly better than in some other sports movies I've seen. Yes, I'm damning with faint praise. Damning it to HELL.

FitFortDanga on Mildred Pierce (1945)
Has a lot going for it. The dialogue is sharp, the photography is fantastic (excellent use of shadows), and the cast is superb. Blyth is great as the rottenest child you're likely to see. But the plot falls short of greatness: it's watchable, but doesn't offer much that lingers with you. The voice-over is also really overdone and utterly fake in context (it's hard to swallow someone using such flowery prose during a police interrogation). Worth a watch, but not a keeper.

Stain on Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004)
The retro sf movie we fans of this stuff have always wanted. If you read the old Buck Rogers comics when you were a kid under absolutely no circumstances should you miss it
