a stirring , funny and finally transporting re-imagining of beauty and the beast and 1930s horror films
0
apparently reassembled from the cutting-room floor of any given daytime soap .
0
they presume their audience wo n't sit still for a sociology lesson , however entertainingly presented , so they trot out the conventional science-fiction elements of bug-eyed monsters and futuristic women in skimpy clothes .
1
the entire movie is filled with deja vu moments .
2
this is a visually stunning rumination on love , memory , history and the war between art and commerce .
1
um , no. .
2
jonathan parker 's bartleby should have been the be-all-end-all of the modern-office anomie films .
2
campanella gets the tone just right -- funny in the middle of sad in the middle of hopeful .
0
a fan film that for the uninitiated plays better on video with the sound turned down .
2
b茅art and berling are both superb , while huppert ... is magnificent .
0
a little less extreme than in the past , with longer exposition sequences between them , and with fewer gags to break the tedium .
0
the film is strictly routine .
2
a lyrical metaphor for cultural and personal self-discovery and a picaresque view of a little-remembered world .
0
the most repugnant adaptation of a classic text since roland joff茅 and demi moore 's the scarlet letter .
0
for something as splendid-looking as this particular film , the viewer expects something special but instead gets -lrb- sci-fi -rrb- rehash .
2
this is a stunning film , a one-of-a-kind tour de force .
2
may be more genial than ingenious , but it gets the job done .
2
there is a freedom to watching stunts that are this crude , this fast-paced and this insane .
0
if the tuxedo actually were a suit , it would fit chan like a $ 99 bargain-basement special .
2
as quiet , patient and tenacious as mr. lopez himself , who approaches his difficult , endless work with remarkable serenity and discipline .
0
final verdict : you 've seen it all before .
0
blue crush follows the formula , but throws in too many conflicts to keep the story compelling .
0
you ... get a sense of good intentions derailed by a failure to seek and strike just the right tone .
2
a slick , engrossing melodrama .
0
a wretched movie that reduces the second world war to one man 's quest to find an old flame .
1
eccentric enough to stave off doldrums , caruso 's self-conscious debut is also eminently forgettable .
0
will undoubtedly play well in european markets , where mr. besson is a brand name , and in asia , where ms. shu is an institution , but american audiences will probably find it familiar and insufficiently cathartic .
1
one of -lrb- jaglom 's -rrb- better efforts -- a wry and sometime bitter movie about love .
0
lacks the inspiration of the original and has a bloated plot that stretches the running time about 10 minutes past a child 's interest and an adult 's patience .
2
the santa clause 2 proves itself a more streamlined and thought out encounter than the original could ever have hoped to be .
2
the film is moody , oozing , chilling and heart-warming all at once ... a twisting , unpredictable , cat-and-mouse thriller .
0
too bad .
2
a strong first act and absolutely , inescapably gorgeous , skyscraper-trapeze motion of the amazing spider-man .
0
gooding offers a desperately ingratiating performance .
1
you end up simply admiring this bit or that , this performance or that .
0
a well-intentioned effort that 's still too burdened by the actor 's offbeat sensibilities for the earnest emotional core to emerge with any degree of accessibility .
1
analyze that regurgitates and waters down many of the previous film 's successes , with a few new swings thrown in .
1
there 's a neat twist , subtly rendered , that could have wrapped things up at 80 minutes , but kang tacks on three or four more endings .
2
a fun ride .
1
what with the incessant lounge music playing in the film 's background , you may mistake love liza for an adam sandler chanukah song .
2
an edgy thriller that delivers a surprising punch .
2
` what 's the russian word for wow !? '
1
you might say tykwer has done all that heaven allows , if you wanted to make as anti-kieslowski a pun as possible .
1
many shallower movies these days seem too long , but this one is egregiously short .
2
otto-sallies has a real filmmaker 's eye .
0
lurid and less than lucid work .
1
a portrait of an artist .
1
once again , the intelligence of gay audiences has been grossly underestimated , and a meaty plot and well-developed characters have been sacrificed for skin and flash that barely fizzle .
1
with a confrontational stance , todd solondz takes aim on political correctness and suburban families .
1
many of the effective horror elements are dampened through familiarity , -lrb- yet -rrb- are worthwhile .
0
with its parade of almost perpetually wasted characters ... margarita feels like a hazy high that takes too long to shake .
0
i could just feel the screenwriter at every moment ` tap , tap , tap , tap , tapping away ' on this screenplay .
2
overall , cletis tout is a winning comedy that excites the imagination and tickles the funny bone .
2
you live the mood rather than savour the story .
2
the movie is so thoughtlessly assembled .
1
here polanski looks back on those places he saw at childhood , and captures them by freeing them from artefact , and by showing them heartbreakingly drably .
2
some body is a shaky , uncertain film that nevertheless touches a few raw nerves .
2
it 's a very sincere work , but it would be better as a diary or documentary .
0
while american adobo has its heart -lrb- and its palate -rrb- in the right place , its brain is a little scattered -- ditsy , even .
2
unfolds with such a wallop of you-are-there immediacy that when the bullets start to fly , your first instinct is to duck .
0
and it 's a lousy one at that .
2
it 's not too fast and not too slow .
2
it 's an entertaining movie , and the effects , boosted to the size of a downtown hotel , will all but take you to outer space .
2
it is as uncompromising as it is nonjudgmental , and makes clear that a prostitute can be as lonely and needy as any of the clients .
2
compellingly watchable .
0
despite some comic sparks , welcome to collinwood never catches fire .
1
he may have meant the internet short saving ryan 's privates .
2
though jackson does n't always succeed in integrating the characters in the foreground into the extraordinarily rich landscape , it must be said that he is an imaginative filmmaker who can see the forest for the trees .
2
not only does spider-man deliver , but i suspect it might deliver again and again .
2
it 's worth taking the kids to .
1
the movie plays up the cartoon 's more obvious strength of snazziness while neglecting its less conspicuous writing strength .
0
without shakespeare 's eloquent language , the update is dreary and sluggish .
2
dense , exhilarating documentary .
0
... feels as if -lrb- there 's -rrb- a choke leash around your neck so director nick cassavetes can give it a good , hard yank whenever he wants you to feel something .
2
poignant if familiar story of a young person suspended between two cultures .
1
a perfectly acceptable , perfectly bland , competently acted but by no means scary horror movie .
2
methodical , measured , and gently tedious in its comedy , secret ballot is a purposefully reductive movie -- which may be why it 's so successful at lodging itself in the brain .
1
this is amusing for about three minutes .
2
though a touch too arthouse 101 in its poetic symbolism , heaven proves to be a good match of the sensibilities of two directors .
2
superbly photographed and staged by mendes with a series of riveting set pieces the likes of which mainstream audiences have rarely seen .
2
a metaphor for a modern-day urban china searching for its identity .
2
it 's a square , sentimental drama that satisfies , as comfort food often can .
2
the wonderfully lush morvern callar is pure punk existentialism , and ms. ramsay and her co-writer , liana dognini , have dramatized the alan warner novel , which itself felt like an answer to irvine welsh 's book trainspotting .
2
admirers of director abel ferrara may be relieved that his latest feature , r xmas , marks a modest if encouraging return to form .
0
not once in the rush to save the day did i become very involved in the proceedings ; to me , it was just a matter of ` eh . '
0
an ugly-duckling tale so hideously and clumsily told it feels accidental .
0
becomes a bit of a mishmash : a tearjerker that does n't and a thriller that wo n't .
1
at its worst , the movie is pretty diverting ; the pity is that it rarely achieves its best .
2
could i have been more geeked when i heard that apollo 13 was going to be released in imax format ?
2
this is a very ambitious project for a fairly inexperienced filmmaker , but good actors , good poetry and good music help sustain it .
0
more successful at relating history than in creating an emotionally complex , dramatically satisfying heroine
2
cho 's timing is priceless .
2
criminal conspiracies and true romances move so easily across racial and cultural lines in the film that it makes my big fat greek wedding look like an apartheid drama .
2
there 's something to be said for a studio-produced film that never bothers to hand viewers a suitcase full of easy answers .
2
what elevates the movie above the run-of-the-mill singles blender is its surreal sense of humor and technological finish .
1
greengrass -lrb- working from don mullan 's script -rrb- forgoes the larger socio-political picture of the situation in northern ireland in favour of an approach that throws one in the pulsating thick of a truly frightening situation .
2
nicholson 's understated performance is wonderful .
2
the filmmakers know how to please the eye , but it is not always the prettiest pictures that tell the best story .
0
it 's unfortunate that wallace , who wrote gibson 's braveheart as well as the recent pearl harbor , has such an irrepressible passion for sappy situations and dialogue .
0
jackson shamefully strolls through this mess with a smug grin , inexplicably wearing a kilt and carrying a bag of golf clubs over one shoulder .
