Film Review: The Pirates! Band of Misfits

FilmJournal
26 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Pirates! Band of Misfits opens with its motley crew engaged in an animated argument (make that arrghument, with requisite biting and stomping) to settle the best part about being a pirate—it’s the marooning, no, it’s the shanties—when the Pirate Captain, our hero with the luxuriant beard,...

Film review: 'In Darkness'

Las Vegas Weekly
25 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars (it lost to A Separation ), the Polish Holocaust drama In Darkness is exactly the kind of respectable mediocrity the Academy likes to reward. It’s a well-crafted, well-intentioned historical drama that’s long on history and short on truly engaging drama.

Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest

DVDizzy
16 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Beats, Rhymes & Life is no doubt the most polished documentary on A Tribe Called Quest we can expect to see anytime soon. Though it makes for an okay viewing, I'm not convinced there is enough interesting material here to justify the feature film treatment. Still, if you are a fan, you will enjoy this celebration of their music and if not, you should at least be riveted by the more compelling stretches of behind-the-scenes drama.

Film Review: Fast Five

FilmJournal
28 April 2011
  • Excerpt: A smashing addition to the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fast Five condenses everything good about the series into a state-of-the-art thrill ride. The film's testosterone-heavy cast and jaw-dropping action sequences will help boost the box office for what has become a money-making machine for...

FILMDUDE
26 July 2012
  • Excerpt: "In Darkness" is an extraordinary tale of survival. The claustrophobic surroundings are grim and harrowing, a disturbing reflection of the true events upon which the story is based. Although still heavily dramatised, there is still a refreshingly raw honesty and unsentimentality to the film that is both profound and moving.

5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: "The Pirates!" is another adventure from a production house who continue to painstakingly animate their films with clay. They do so successfully with this film, creating a world of splendid colour and detail that keep the eyes busy. The story is an inherently amusing one, moving along at a swift pace, but the journey is lacking in laughter, with numerous gags failing to reach that 'hilarious' territory.

FILMDUDE
20 April 2011
  • Excerpt: After watching this film, the drive home will feel slower than ever before and any muscles you thought you had will look more like excess skin. The cars and the men in this film put all to shame. The car chases and action sequences are non-stop, over the top, till you drop... and then some. The story, which follows a trio of crims on the run ties these amazingly shot scenes quite nicely together. If you have the need for speed, fasten your seatbelts.

tros kompas
24 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Toretto (Vin Diesel) en O’Conner (Paul Walker) zijn na hun nipte ontsnapping in het vorige deel uitgeweken naar Rio de Janeiro. Ze gaan niet op het strand uitbuiken of carnaval vieren, maar beramen plannen voor gedurfde overvallen. Zo ziet u hoe ze op slimme wijze glimmende sportwagens van een rijdende trein stelen. Dat kan vast ook op een minder spectaculaire en minder gevaarlijke manier, maar welke kijker zit daar op te wachten?

Fast Five

  • Excerpt: Как выяснилось, иногда франчайзы возвращаются не только благодаря животному электричеству и прочим шаманским пассам жадных продюсеров, а как бы сами по себе, при этом не изображая живых мертвецов , а во вполне буддистской традиции испытывая новое перерождение. Один из вопиющих примеров — ураганный успех «Форсажа 4» , причём с режиссёром благополучно не замеченной третьей, токийской части , что как бы не предвещало ничего хорошего.
