Pippin2010 on The Lake House (2006)
Why does this magic thing even start working? Were major plot points neglected? Too much is left to the viewers' interpretation. The overall work of the film is shaky (it's confusing, it's disjointed, it's vague, it leaves too much to the imagination). It's entertaining and warm-hearted in its happy ending, though the story itself is kind of creepy, if you think about it (getting random letters from someone in the past).

Stain on The Freshman (1990)
Just frigging terrible. Not funny, annoying, and, to top it off, blatant usage of a stunt lizard (I am not making this up)

thaklos on Coraline (2009)
This is a wonderful movie for children, featuring a world ripe with hidden secrets and curious oddities. Unfortunately the enchantment is missing the humour of similar titles, and falls apart in the third act when it fails to go dark enough. Overall a fantastic effort, with great voice acting, and some truly magical scenes (the opening in particular) that comes together as a good movie, but can't quite grasp greatness.

magb on Pan's Labyrinth (2006)
I love a good film about imagination and private fantasy worlds, and Pan's Labyrinth had me spellbound from beginning to end. Even though the template for the story is a fairy tale, the film has layers of complexity to it. The story is helped along immensely by wonderful art direction and special effects for the more fantastical elements, and perfect acting for the more earthbound parts. Fantastic stuff.

Very touching.

santoposmoderno on Thor (2011)
Con una trama más bien simple y recurriendo a efectos cómicos bastante pueriles, el aspecto visual termina siendo uno de los pocos puntos fuertes del filme. Se echa de menos también el desarrollo de personajes. Es simplemente inaceptable que el personaje Natalie Portman caiga tan fácilmente enamorada de un tipo que, aparte de su físico, no parezca defender más que un delirio de grandeza. El personaje de Thor en sí, no es ni tan seductor como para merecer ese honor. Y la historia: muy predecible.

turin on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
The best book in the series deserved a much better adaptation. It was shorter than many, more dark and the good balance between teen's problems and saving the world had a potential for a good and mature film. The process of necessary cutting of the material heavily destroyed the atmosphere of the novel and what was left got killed by stupid 'romance' scenes apparently written by some 11-year old. Unwatchable for anyone above age of 13.

FitFortDanga on Solaris (1972)
Sue me, I like Soderbergh's better. Tark wastes too much time, and a lot of it just looks cheap. I'm sure he did the best he could with what he had, but that doesn't make it any better. Soderbergh is also apparently more faithful to the source material.

Spunkie on Paranormal Activity (2007)
I am literally flabbergasted right now, had to open some music and come here to write this to knock some sense back to myself. While easily dismissable if watched on a third person perspective or a cinematic distance, if you just give into it and actually be there it's damn powerful. Praise goes to psychological tension built up minute by minute.
