Evil

Something as important as this subject matter should shock you to the core . Unfortunately this is just a worthy film rather than an emotional experience. Of course the acting ,script etc are fine but where is the real horror. Irving is evil but I don’t think this is fully realised

Original caper

Original heist film about four kids robbing a museum starts off almost comically. Things take a darker turn when inevitably the plan collapses. Then the tone changes and for the better. The actual robbery is tense and shocking and you’re sympathies lie very much with the employees .Interspersed with interviews with the real protagonists this is highly recommended

Disappointing

As a lover of Australian films of that era I found this disappointing. Mysterious disappearances should be more enigmatic and atmospheric. I found this didn’t have either of these attributes. There’s nothing really wrong with the film I just didn’t engage with it

Tears to your eyes

Realistic portrayal of a doomed love affair. I didn’t really think about the age difference because it didn’t matter. Proper love story without the schmaltz .Annette Bening is marvellous and Jamie Bell nearly as good. Read the book years ago and I was amazed when I heard it was to be made into a film. Compelling, moving and the best film I’ve seen since joining Cinema Paradiso

Disappointing

Expected more from this but I should have known better. I find nearly all horror films awful(even the well reviewed ones).This at first is an intelligent sometimes funny and creepy take on the race issue. Unfortunately it descends into a predictable macabre ending going nowhere. Still it’s better than most.

What’s not to like

Faultless comedy.Funny,emotional,realistic characterisations. Above all likeable, superbly acted. You’re not quite sure how it will turn out which is always a good sign as nothing is ever straightforward in real life.

Detroit skakedown

Powerful stuff about an embarrassing and gruesome event in American history. I liked the mixture of real life footage with the fictionalised account. Never seen a bad Bigelow film yet although I think the story should have been opened out

Bobby Robson Online DVD Rental

Geordie grit

Good bio about a top man if a slightly overrated manager. Let’s get this straight we were pretty ropey in 86 including the hand of god debacle. 1990 we rode our luck. Having said that he seems to have been universally loved and this film proves why. An extremely brave and likeable man. Could have done with a few amusing stories of which there are many ,nonetheless watch it, you won’t regret it.

Break a leg (or an arm)

Disappointing considering the directors previous film the excellent Bone Tomahawk. Vince Vaughn is very good but there’s not enough back story or depth to excuse the gratuitous violence. Lots of style especially at the beginning, and some hip dialogue but ultimately who cares

The action is the juice

The first half is hard to like ,it’s like a pop video.People you don’t care about in situations beyond belief. Then there is one of the greatest action sequences ever and I’m won over (one take apparently). Charlize is class but I’ve still only seen her in one good film ( Young Adult)

Acting supreme

Black comedy is something to admire when it works. Although I would recommend this film I didn’t think it was quite funny enough. The dialogue and especially the acting are top class (especially Russell Beale ) but it left me a bit cold. A film to certainly admire but not to love

The Thin Blue Line Online DVD Rental

Southern man don’t need these guys around

Nothing more involving than a miscarriage of justice. Hard to believe this went to court let alone condemning an innocent man . The real killer has that dead behind the eyes look which is always unsettling. Rather it was more than mainly talking heads but I suppose this was an early version of its kind. A minor quibble about a very good film
