THE GOOD one best movie for geeks, great action, great story, great s.e.. THE BAD nothing bad near perfect movie. A little bit bias because X-Men my fav comic book, but kicks all other super hero […], way better than Avengers.

If I wanted to watch an hour of porn (walked out after the first hour), I would stay at home and watch it for free instead of paying 13$+ to sit in a theatre. The movie wasn't advertised as a poisonously sleazy, debauchery filled hedonism-fest, which is a gross oversight by the marketing department representing this movie, since a lot of people are going to end up being unpleasantly surprised by the latest Leonardo DiCaprio movie. On a positive note, the movie had some clever irreverent humour in it.

A gentle film in which a rebellious Saudi teen -a rare entity in strict Saudi Arabia-endeavours to earn money for a bike and learns more about her strict country which does not allow women to drive, vote and insists upon a mode of dress that covers everything. The movie is not shrill or confrontational about the country's traditions which do not allow for either gender or sexual equality. In this first Saudi film (made with great resistance from the authorities) we learn of a modern state (in terms of the availability of cell phones, DVDs and home theatre systems) that remains firmly entrenched in the past. With youngsters like Wadjda there may be change in the future. Utterly charming and a good candidate for one of the year's best.

First, I Love that fact that the movie Heaven is for Real, is a true story. Second, I love reality shows/movies that reveal Jesus in real life, real people, miracles... Jesus here on earth in the Now!!! And be able to share the experience in a movie for all to watch and see for ourselves. Third, I Love the transformation that took place in the people of the town and how the Jesus experience brought them all together. Fourth, the movies puts Jesus on the movie screens for all to see.

I haven't red the book, but I have to say I enjoyed the movie a lot, great scene, the young actors are great and visually it is impressive. Not the best movie of the season, but I had a great time watching it.

Although the cinematography was excellent and the acting was actually quite good overall this movie left me very uninspired. There were enough large plot holes in this film to fly a spaceship through. If I had known at the beginning of the film that it did not get better... I would have left the theater. All in all I was very disappointed in this movie.

It's a great movie. Really the best of the X-Men movies, and I've seen them all, and they're all good. What I like about it is that it's well balanced. There's something for everyone. A good summer movie. There's good acting, good dialogue, good action and great special effects. Above all else I really cared what happened to the characters. Go and see it. I don't think you'll be sorry. By the way at the end of the long, long credits there's a teaser for the next saga of this series.

I read about the story and I didn't think I wanted to see this but given the great reviews I rethought that and was very glad I did. This is a very meditative film, it makes you think throughout and you leave with a feeling from the theatre that you need to do more with your life.

My first critic as a 50+!!! The Grand Budapest Hotel is a very good movie that I saw with my kids and nephews. Wes Anderson creates a world of its own which is funny, light, interesting, extravagant and sometimes sad. The very solid cast adapted well to this creation by Anderson. It is a very funny movie with lots of adventure, sarcasm,... We all loved it and I wish that I could go back. The best film I saw this year!!!

I agree with another viewer. (No different than other Jesus movies. Everyone says it was accurate, but why do these movies keep making Jesus "white"? Unless you are religious, probably not for you) A true beliver knows Jesus not white. People would see who are really true believers if one big movie would show a likely actor to play his part. These movie reviewers would show their true selves and may not come to see it. Lets be true to ourselves. [...]

Well, looking at other people's reviews before watching, I knew it was either a love it movie, or a hate it movie. I was absolutely blown away by the direction of Scorsese (again) and I also think that DiCaprio deserves an Oscar award. Jonah Hill also showed his amazing acting talents. The qualude scene has to rank as one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen in a movie. Never a dull moment, just so full of energy. But not as full of nudity as some had made it out to be in my opinion. Drug use is prevalent. As a teenager in the 80's I can remember vividly how everything was in excess: money, shopping, drugs, alcohol, sex. Jordan Belfort's behaviour was not that far fetched. I hope the Oscar nomination board can see past the debauchery displayed in this film and award it for the depth of acting and direction.

Very good movie, though I must say there is no real reason to see it in the cinema. The performances by both the leads are amazing, and I really enjoyed it. It's not as upbeat as most Disney movies though, and the movie posters and trailers don't prepare you enough for the serious themes in the movie. I was very intrigued by the background and sadness of the author of Mary Poppins' life, but also spent too much time trying to explain things to my young daughters after the movie as they thought we were going to see something much more light-hearted.

Lots of heart but not enough substance to rise above other documentaries. This film follows different people that have decided to do the 500-mile trek of the Camino Pilgrimage to some big church in Santiago. As they pass through the different regions, you'll be thinking like an El Grande! (I have no idea if that makes any contextual sense) It's noticeably religious as is normal for this type of spiritual journey. Some of the people's stories are better than others and I did get moved to tears once. But it really moves along at a snail's pace and although it's got great feel-good qualities, it's not fantastic in terms of execution. Bad date movie. Still the film makes a strong case for what this type of adventure does for the soul.

Good flick! Action, story, awesome effects, great actors, and an engaging story. All the things I need to crush a large popcorn. Really liked the performance by the new Magneto. That guy nailed it. Also had a few good strategic laughs tossed in there that brought it all together. There’s also a “after credit” scene, which is the standard these days I guess, so stick around if interested. Be advised, it's at the end of ALL the credits. Gross.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie and I got exactly what I expected. The plot was ridiculous. I have to say though that the young actors in the movie did a terrific job with the little they had to work with. If the acting was not as good as it was I would given this turkey a 3/10.

I think it was great but it could have been a lot better. The documentary approach is good but nobody revealed much of what was achieved. Maybe they achieved something but they did not feel like sharing it. The actual trek seems challenging, I found that the inner work of the participants was not revealed. Some of my friends believe that people only realize that the changes they went through only become apparent when they go back to their lives. Maybe, that's the missing part of this film. Still worth the see.

This is a story that should be known everywhere in the world. It shows how otherwise decent people can be manipulated by governments into doing extraordinary evil, and how it destroys many lives at a time."They lied to us..." is so very true -- then and now. You cannot forget some things, but we must try to forgive because," Somewhere the hating has to stop."

In David Cronenberg's strange world, science fiction is far more fiction than science. The main character's ability to morph into a killing machine in the sleaziest manner just wasn't impressive. Debbie Harry's role was less than I was expecting, and I really felt that James Woods was attempting to impress the movie industry in a style that belonged to Tom Cruise. A horror film for people who like horror films.

Not much originality here, the year 1973 was the same year President Salvador Allende in Santiago, Chile was assassinated by foreign Jets that bombarded the Presidential Palace and nobody could save him. It is reminiscent of "Back to the Future". Unfortunately the whole plot is given away at the start. So we follow the Plan set forth by the X-Men: Days of Future Past to change the course of History in a non novel fashion. The rest is Special Effects, futuristic landscapes and Heroes. Mostly eye candy and an attractive mutant, Mystic/Raven played by the new teen Queen Jennifer Lawrence. Very original transformation of the protagonist of better thrillers in the Sci-F genre like The Hunger Games. X-Men: Days of Future Past is a total bore and absolutely predictable.

[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
I’m not going to pretend that “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is a good movie but I’m glad I saw it on the big screen, in 3-D. It’s dumb, loud and way too long. On the other hand, it also contains a scene where Michael Bay and writer Ehren Kruger prove that they’ve lost their god-damned minds and have Optimus Prime riding into battle on a fire-breathing mechanical Tyrannosaurus Rex. Before we get too much into the positive and negative aspects of the film, let me tell you what it’s about. The film is set 5 years after the events of “Dark of the Moon”. Megatron is dead, Starscream is dead, Ironhide is dead, the majority of Chicago is dead. Everyone is dead! Well, not everyone. The United States Government, outraged by the attack on Chicago has dissolved their peace treaty with the Autobots. Now, any lone Autobots remaining on Earth and any still-living Decepticons are being hunted down. Our main character is Cade Yeager (Mark Whalberg) He’s a down-on-his luck inventor that stumbles upon an old, beaten-up cab-over truck... which turns out to be Optimus Prime himself (voiced by Peter Cullen) Cade knows he should turn in the Transformer for a huge reward from the government, but he sympathizes with the alien. Next thing you know, Cade, his daughter Tessa (Nicola Peltz) and Optimus Prime are on the run. It turns out that the Transformers are being hunted down, but not to protect the citizens of Earth. Scientists are after the metal they are made of in order to create their own army of super advanced, shape-changing robots. Our heroes will have to join up with the rag-tag surviving transformers and find a way to clear their name by exposing the actions of the film’s main baddie, Joshua Joyce (Stanley Tucci) If that wasn’t difficult enough, he’s allied with a ruthless transformer named Lockdown (voiced by Mark Ryan) He’s an intergalactic bounty hunter with a particular grudge against the Autobot leader. Oh, and we’ve got some robotic Dinosaurs thrown in there too, the Dinobots! I’m just going to start by naming the bad elements in this film. Despite everything I’m going to list however, I want to remind you that I’m actually glad that I saw this fourth instalment and while I acknowledge that it’s probably the dumbest action movie I will see all year (and I pray that’s the case), there’s some fun to be had with “Dawn of Extinction”. Even as a Transformers film, this movie seems at certain points to make absolutely no sense whatsoever. I don’t care what anyone says, it is more obvious than ever before that there is no clear plan for these films, and certainly no “Bible” that the people in charge can refer themselves to because with every new story, developments contradict each other every time we explore the Transformers’ past. In this case, information we get about these aliens is inconsistent from scene to scene. The most obvious example is a quick explanation we get of how a Transformer’s memories are stored. Apparently, they are stored within the head of the robots. We are also told however, that the personalities of the Transformers are stored within their sparks, the thing that differentiates them from random machines built by humans, and that is located within their chests (as was established in the first two films) As we learn more about the army of robots being created by the villains, you will see that only one of these revelations turn out to be true, or at least is true within this story. It might also dawn on you, while you’re watching this chapter (if you’ve been paying any attention with these films) that the Allspark, that cube everyone was running after in the first movie way way back in 2007 was what created all life in Cybertron. How is it possible, then, that the Transformers have been created by another alien race, if the cube existed before time itself? Maybe that’s a technical detail, nowhere near the biggest problem, but it demonstrates that there is no grand vision or overarching story at work here, just one chapter after another until the people will stop coming to the theatre. Anyway, let’s move on. The biggest problem with the movie is that it’s impossible to get emotionally attached to the characters at this point. Every film introduces new batches of heroes for us to care for and endless ranks of flat, nameless villains for them to annihilate. Sure we get Bumblebee back, but there must be dozens of characters that have appeared in the previous films that are never mentioned and do not appear in this film. You might say that this is because the Autobots have been hunted down to extinction, but if that’s the case, why do all of the Autobots that join Optimus (save for Bumblebee) turn out to be new characters we’ve never heard of before? It’s not like we are re-introduced some Cybertronian that had a small role in the previous movie with a new body; it’s a slew of brand new characters. You don’t know who Drift, Crosshairs or Hound are they’re just there to sell toys. That explains why the villains get so little characterization as well. Heroes sell better than bad guy toys so the Autobots get all of the character development (well, not really but in theory they do) and the villains get none at all. Each evil robot in this film is basically the exact same character except that he looks different. Yes I realize that there are two exceptions, but for the most part, every bad guy is a drone, simply there to be killed in increasingly ridiculous ways by the heroes. The action sequences end up meaning nothing at all because the villains are in no way a threat. It’s a huge missed opportunity because with each film we waste time introducing new allies for Optimus Prime and new villains for them to fight and kill, and it is never as obvious or crippling as it is in this movie because at this point, every character you might have been attached to from the original film are all gone. Instead, we get new heroes who only get the tiniest bit of character development, just enough to make them easily identifiable so you can pretend to yourself that you’re relieved when they don’t end up getting shot in the face. Even then, shortcuts like accents and catch phrases are used in all instances so that you can identify who is who. Another way you can tell this is a brainless action movie is that none of the action done by any of the characters has any real impact on the story whatsoever. The setup of this film is that the battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons got so bad in the previous film that the entire city of Chicago was whipped out and the humans have said ENOUGH! You would think, therefore, that the Autobots would take real care to create as little collateral damage as possible. Not at all. There are scenes where the Autobots are having aerial battles and they casually shoot enemy ships out of the sky. Those ships, even though it’s off-screen, would end up crashing down below into buildings and probably end up killing tons of people. It moves quickly and it’s big and flashy though, so no one put more than a second’s worth of thought into it. Another scene that struck me as one in which the people putting this film together really didn’t think things through was later in the film, when the Autobots are infiltrating Lockdown’s ship. They see that Lockdown has captured all kinds of creatures, many of which are alien and some of which are Transformers, just like our heroes. You can probably theorize that none of these creatures are here willingly, since Lockdown has gone this whole film shooting down anyone in his path and generally not being a terribly nice guy. Anyway, Tessa passes by a cage and a weird multi-legged creature spits at her. An Autobot retaliates by shooting the thing and reducing it to a pile of goopy hamburger. Just think about that scene for a second. That creature was there unwillingly. How do the Autobots, who are supposed to be our heroes, know it wasn’t just crying for help, begging them to return it to its home world so it could feed its sick children? I guess if it doesn’t speak English, then it must be evil. Blow it up! Even from a character design point, it feels like the film is missing something. If you look at the robots as they were introduced in 2007 and on, they just seem to get progressively less interesting. Transformers used to come in all kinds of sizes. We had some that were shorter than people and some that were able to pick up cars and casually throw them over their shoulders like it was nothing. We had some that looked humanoid, some that looked like animals. They had one eye, four eyes, two eyes; characters had no mouths, multiple legs, wheels for legs or even a single leg they hopped around on. We had robots that really looked like alien robots because their proportions were not like human being’s at all. They turned into alien spaceships, jets, helicopters, tanks, motorcycles, human beings, insects, we even had a robot that was nearly invisible because it was a 2-dimensional dinosaur you could only see from the side and another that was so huge it transformed into a dozen vehicles that assembled themselves to build a mechanical giant. In “Age of Extinction”, each character is colour-coded differently, but they’re all basically the same. They all just look like robotic people. They have clothing, facial hair, two arms, two legs and basic human proportions. All I see here are mechanical people running around shooting at each other, not a race of advanced alien robots from a distant galaxy. It’s like these films don’t even fit in the same continuity because what you would expect to be consistent from one film to another, the Transformers don’t look anything like the ones from the first two films. For all of the faults in this film, this one does take some steps in the right direction. With the main female lead being under-aged, gone is the overabundant sexualisation that was constantly present with Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Gone also, for the most part, is the parade of comic-relief buffoons that you just wanted to see die. It’s not completely devoid of comedy, but the film is a lot more geared towards the action and, well “story” than it is the comedy. The human characters overall are also a vast improvement over the ones in the previous film. Here, they actually feel integral to the plot and relevant to the action. It’s a lot easier to care for a down-on-his luck inventor that is also a single dad and sympathetic towards Optimus Prime than it is to care about a bumbling young adult with a smokin’ hot girlfriend looking for a job (see “Dark of the Moon”) There are also some nice variations in the locations of the film, with some flashbacks to prehistoric times, the action travelling from the United States to China and some key scenes in the movie set inside of Lockdown’s ship. As usual, the special effects here are very good as well. Say what you will about this franchise, but it delivers when it comes to the spectacle and making the Transformers look very nice on-screen. It’s particularly impressive when Grimlock and the other Dinobots come into the film towards the end of the story. It’s hard to tell if they really are in the film that much, since the whole thing lasts nearly, if not more than two-and-a-half hours, but they’re easily the most memorable aspect of the film. If you struggled with being able to differentiate who was who in the fast-paced action scenes, you will also find that they are much more coherent than before, and if you see the movie in 3-D, the aerial dogfights and battle sequences offer a lot in terms of depth and moments that will make you jump. “Transformers: Age of Extinction” is a polarizing film for me. It’s not really good, but I recommend it anyway. Not in an ironic way either, more of a recommendation with an asterisk. If you are interested in this film because you’ve seen the other movies and you thought they were genuinely good, or you just enjoyed them because sometimes you just like seeing shiny special effects jump around and stuff blow up, then you should see it on the big screen. If you’ve seen “Revenge of the Fallen” and “Dark of the Moon” and you thought they were flat-out bad and you didn’t like them, but you think that maybe this film will be a step in the right direction, you would be correct, but I still wouldn’t recommend you see it because it’s not that much of an improvement overall. The main reason for my asterisk here is that the movie is just so long. If a movie is big, loud and dumb but it features cool special effects and it clocks in at just an hour and a half, that’s not too much of a commitment, but at this length, there is simply no reason why this film has to be this bad. Once again, it’s faint praise but I was glad to have seen “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction”, even if it is a weak film. (Theatrical version on the big screen, July 19, 2014)

Viewers will recognize this movie as being along the same lines as 'The Hunger Games', complete with plans for a sequel, albeit with slightly different premises. Moviegoers will be dropped into the story not knowing why our hero is there, and they will spend the rest of the movie figuring that out. The film is also redolent of 'Lord of the Flies' with post-pubescent guys running around with pointy sticks. The characters are acted well enough, and the effects of the maze are quite satisfying, but the plot lacks originality.

All movies ask the viewer to suspend disbelief. But Pacific Rim abuses that entreaty by offering such ridiculous offal that no person with intelligence beyond the average young child's could possibly get through this without several shakes of the head. Other than one of the most ludicrous plots in cinema history, the movie is OK. Acting is at an expected level for this sort of oeuvre (but bad nerds) Production values are high enough. Action is good enough. And a nice throwback to the genre's origins is shown with the creature animation. I did watch to the end, though. But the plot? Seriously, if the lava flows don't melt it, the rocket's red glare won't either.

A NICE movie. Formulaic. Predictable. Sweet. Very handsome young male lead. Etc., etc... Not riveting for me; found my attention wandering as I could predict (accurately as it turned out) the end. Not a complete waste of time though as nice, sweet movies can be enjoyable too, on occasion!

This is a movie I would (and did) see with family. It's hard-hitting and heart-felt, with very distinctive characters and wonderful morals and story line. I took my husband and he loved it, then took my sister (husband said it was just because I wanted to see it twice; I told him it was also a good excuse to see my sister) and she loved it, AND we told my husband's grandparents about it and THEY saw it and loved it. They came back and he was rubbing his arm because she bruised it with her enthusiasm, but they both loved it despite the age difference between us and even though we don't like the same things most of the time. I tried to send my dad to see it, as I know he'd like it, my mom would probably like it, my grandparents would love it, and I've been recommending it to people at work as well. This movie is based on real events, the people who came together and made the movie all had things in common and some of that shows on screen, and... This is a movie I will buy. Not might, WILL. And probably will buy other copies for other relatives so they can enjoy it, too. Because this movie is too good not to share.

From the demented mind of Frank Miller, this stylized, no-holds-barred, sex and violence-soaked film is a worthy follow-up to the original classic. Eva Green steals every scene she is in, in her portrayal as the sultry, evil seductress. The 3D effects are powerfully rendered, even though this is hard to achieve with a mostly black & white movie which, in my opinion, is the best motion picture released so far this year.

This old man also enjoyed watching some of my old fabulous actors but I especially enjoyed seeing Mel Gibson at his best being a villain and/or should I say a bad guy of America... I hear YA folks, Mel was not playing a Brave Heart but then again, that part was also no passion of well YA know WHO?.. Go figure? I'm sure that his fans will forgive him for the part that he took after going through a 250 Mill die voice bill... Come on fans, look at the bright side, not every country loves America these days... WHAT! WHAT! WHAT? LOL :) Peace.

I loved TMNT as a child... And I still love them now! Story could have been a little cleaner. Disappointed that the writers did not do justice to April's character nor to Splinter's. You just can't learn to be Asian by reading a book! Graphics were great and filled with non stop action but what I would have enjoyed is to have spent MORE time getting reacquainted with each turtle! Everything just seemed so rushed! However even with all its shortcomings I'll still be buying this movie for collection. Last note, I love that they showcased Mikey on his skateboard going through the sewer!!

As I saw the original french version, at first, I was a little worried to be disappointed as the original version was such a masterpiece of finesse and "humor à la française" with the greatest Quebec cast of actors ( Raymond Bouchard (the mayor), Benoît Brière (the banking manager), Rita Lafontaine (the mayor's wife), David Boutin ( the doctor), Pierre Collin ( the mayor's best friend), Lucie Laurier ( the young doctor's flirt) But this time, the story is taking place in a little harbor in Newfoundland. As in the original version, the photography well captures the beauty of the landscapes of the coast of NF. Further on, we are laughing all along as the story developed. I did not know most of the cast except the great Gordon Pinsent. His character is hilarious and credible as this old fisherman and the mayor's complice. And as a big fan of "This Hour has 22 minutes", I rediscovered Mark Critch, Mary Wlash and Cathy Jones who are hilarious too and well casted in their role. Finally I discovered Brendan Gleeson and Taylor Kitsch whose relationship in the film is the pillar of the whole story.
