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!!

If I could give this movie a 10+, I would, so a BIG Fat 10 for this wonderful movie! I went to every James Brown concert as a teenager growing up in the New York area! I feel blessed to have experienced the magic of being there! What an incredible Music, Genius and Complex person, Mr. James Brown was and will always be! His band set the stage on FIRE! I continued to attend his concerts right up to The God Father of Soul's exit to 'The Other Side'. He is happy! Putting my coins together to see this moving important work of High Art again and again!

I was very disappointed by this movie, I just expect more from Woody Allen. Colin Firth and Emma Stone performed okay considering what they had been given though I'm doubt this movie did much for their careers. Great costumes at least.

A moving story about self discovery a major life choice. It is set in gloomy, probably Communist Poland. Ida is an emotional story of a young, innocent woman. She learns from her aunt who she is and why she grew up in a convent. She experiences life outside the convent and has to decide if she wants to become a nun.

I would have given it a 1, but I wasn't sure if it was the worst movie I ever saw, so I gave it a 2. The only reason to see this 3 hour waste of time is if you want to see the concept of a movie that took 12 years to make and physically see the actual aging of the characters in real time and life. Otherwise a complete waste of time.

The only reason I don't give this film the lowest possible rating is so that anyone interested in fashion goes to see this and realizes what shallow, witless, uninteresting, unintelligent, and snarky people work in fashion and at Vogue in particular. One would expect those who work in the upper echelons of the style-making industry would be intelligent, witty or even interesting but I have never had to suffer a more shallow, boring, nasty group of individuals on film: they whine and snipe and pose and pout, petulantly believing that the world is failing to recognize what they consider to be their obvious creative genius. Forget it. What talent is evident here (mostly that of stylist Grace Coddington) is overshadowed by their miserable, self-absorbed sense of self-importance. The best thing I can say about this documentary is that it convinced me to never again waste my time or money on an issue of Vogue.

It's a pretty good movie. I'm not sure if it's really worth 10/10 but it's a Canadian film which is a good enough reason to go watch it. So just go. Now.

Sweet and poignant message. The little boy was an amazing actor and the movie really is great because of him. Some of the church/pastor scenes were stilted and awkward but that may be what his church and his ministry was really like... dry and stilted. It made me wonder if the pastor was in a faith crisis of his own when the event happened. I don't think anyone could walk away from this film and question this little boy's experience was real as it would be difficult for a 4-year old to fabricate such a detailed story. And that is the message... Heaven is for real!

I was not expecting much from this movie, and yet I came away extremly disapointed. I thought it might about the adventures of Hercules, but instead they only allude to his trials. What were they thinking. There is so much story in these trials they could be a series of movies, but for some reason they completely dissmiss them and use something new. The script was bad, acting mediocre at best, the plot felt tacked on as a means to get from one fight scene to the next. Never really cared for the rock. I don't really find him to be a good actor, nor do I think he is all the charsmatic or charming. Casting even went out of their way to make everyone sound british... Except the Rock. I found it distracting whenever he said anything. I do not recomend this to anyone.

Godzilla is a wonderful and thrilling throwback to classic monster movies, like Jaws and Jurassic Park. Yes, you have to actually wait a little while for Godzilla to show up, this isn't a modern, cranked up to 11, action packed explosion-fest. This is a carefully crafted story setting up these monsters so that the finale will be that much more exciting. I personally enjoyed the movie thoroughly and loved having my anticipation built up. The ending is so worth the wait and while the human element isn't the best part of the movie, it rarely is in these kinds of films. It was great that nearly every twist and surprise wasn't revealed in the trailer, so expect some genuine gasps when this movie unfolds. This a great movie for those who enjoy creature features and I highly recommend it.

[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
It started out looking pretty promising what with the ape culture and different personalities in the ape city. Enter the humans, on a mission to restore the power dam. Human are depticted as laughably predictable stereotypes -- good human, bad human! You can tell who the bad humans are, they have long hair or don't shave enough and look kind of smelly. Also, they think apes are dumb animals. But wait! There are 'bad' apes, too so between the bad apes and the bad humans war is inevitable. The 'war' was a little confusing for a while, like who is winning here but don't worry, the music will tell you how to feel. Yes, the score. At every possible opportunity, the score was either very, very moving, or very, very ominous or well, just very, very whatever you the viewer are supposed to be feeling about all this just in case you weren't sure. This sound track re-defined intrusive. During the big battle scene the 'bad' ape actually rides a horse full tilt with a gun in each ala John Wayne in True Grit-- I nearly laughed out loud. The action (when not being interrupted by touching scenes of how nice and family oriented apes are) and clichés, are non-stop. There are a few cute moments of interaction between the 'good' humans (of course) and some of the apes, and the special effects are well done, but overall it's a waste of computer generated effects.

You think Jaws (rated 10!) was the first "scare on the beach movie?". If the criteria is predictability, only David Lynch movies should get above 8! And if we were to sick to original screenplay idea, we would only watch movies made before 1950!

[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
Overall, this was a very entertaining movie. I was very pleased to see the 2 casts of X-men brought together. It's unfortunate that a few of the roles from great actors i.e. Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ian McKellan were diminished. Most of the focus is on the past events surrounding Wolverine, Xavier, Magneto, and Mystique. The SFX were top notch and the action and the suspense throughout was fantastic. There were some really neat action sequences, but nothing mind blowing. You essentially get what you'd expect from the X-Men series. I liked the dark post apocalyptic feel of the movie as it was a definite change for this series. The score is menacing and hopeful, at the same time. I didn't like that Xavier never explained how he survived the events of X-men The Last Stand. This is a glaring plot hole that could have easily been fixed with a quick flashback/expository scene. Please stay until the end of the credits. Might be important for the next sequel!!

This was one of the most touching movies I've seen in a long time. I've been a fan of Jonas Armstrong for some years now and he does not fail to disappoint, along with the young lady who played Rachel. She is someone to keep your eye on in the future. I would highly recommend this movie to everyone.

I enjoyed this movie a lot. The CGI is extremely good, but the plot gets cheesy at times. It is well worth seeing which I did in 3D. Characters were quite predictable (good/bad in everyone), but overall one of the better movies of its type.

Mais qu'est ce qu'ont tous les critiques dans les journaux avec les comparaisons entre Volcano et Amour? Je viens de voir Volcano, qui est sur la reconquête d'un amour perdu, et la redécouverte de la vie par quelqu'un qui n'en attendait plus rien. Il n'a rien de la froideur clinique du film de Haneke. On est plus proche de Bergman ici, et il faut vraiment ne pas aller chercher bien loin ou bien être aveugle aux subtilités pour s'arrêter à la comparaison entre les deux films. Oui, les deux films parlent de personnes du troisième âge, et de la maladie de l'un d'entre eux. C'est tout, fini la comparaison. Le film de Haneke est très bien, mais Volcano dégage une douceur et une tendresse que j'ai rarement vues au cinéma, et certainement pas chez Haneke. La salle était en pleurs quand le film s'est terminé, je pense que c'est une des plus belles histoires d'amour que j'ai vus au cinéma. Il y avait peu de gens dans la salle quand j'y suis allé, j'espère qu'au moins les commentaires positifs vont encourager d'autres à venir découvrir ce film. Ce serait dommage de passer à côté.

There aren't a lot of movies that I would rate highly (mostly due to major 'suspension of disbelief' or absence of decent story-line or an overabundance of CGI) but I really enjoyed this film. This version of Sleeping Beauty is sweet and amusing (except for the 3 babysitting-fairies that I found too childish/annoying) And I love the music (although I thought it was Angelina who was singing the theme song!)

Being longtime fans of Hunter S. Thompson, and hungry for any new material about him and his 'sidekick' Ralph Steadman, my husband and I went to see this documentary about the man behind the crazy art that accompanied Hunter's writings. It was exciting and enlightening to see the genius of Steadman at work, step by step creating his style of art that has come to be a well-known expression of their disdain for the social and political ills of society when combined with Hunter's writings. We never understood, before this, the influence Steadman must have had on Hunter, and visa-versa. We thought Hunter was the crazy genius, but this documentary shows how they were both really meant to be together in this world. We both thought Johnny Depp's involvement was important as a friend who loved Hunter and who asked the few needed questions that revealed to us how important a person Steadman was to Hunter, and what an amazing artist and person Steadman is in his own right. His arrival in America and his first impressions of NYC were haunting and revealing of the kind of human being he is. We both recommend this documentary to anyone who loved Hunter Thompson. It really tells us an amazing and integral part of his story.

22 Jump Street is a movie that seems to take pride in the fact that it shoudn't even exist. Rarely has a sequel, particularly a comedic one, been so in love with the notion of trashing itself. From wink at the camera dialogue like "this case is EXACTLY like the last one" to a closing credit sequence showing audiences what 40 Jump Street would look like, this movie seems to get the absurdity of sequels in a way that very few films ever have. Hill and Tatum are yet again the big reason why it works as well as it does, although Ice Cube lends a big comedic hand this time. It meanders a little more than it should and the laughs aren't as plentiful nor as creative as 21. However, there are several side splitting moments and enough smug self awareness to make this a sequel that deserves a chance, even if its own writers clearly don't think so.

This may be appealing to some who are non critical and will watch anything religious. I would not sit through this movie if it was free. I would not watch it on a bus, a train or a plane... but I paid to see it, and I sat there for the entire movie, thinking something redeeming might happen. I mean, I like Greg Kinnear, and Kelly Reilly has potential, but there was NOTHING redeeming about this ridiculous and frankly pointless waste of time. It might be a good way to entertain the kids at Sunday school or on a rainy day at a religious summer camp, but for me there are way better ways to waste time and money!

Unfocussed, scattered, but visually sometimes interesting despite the lack of context. As a documentary it needs a point of view, and one is left with the impression that a Burtynsky photograph is much more powerful and informative on its own than is a film inspired by his work. The bits and pieces showing Burtynsky at work seemed irrelevant and pointless.

Not really a big Jolie fan […] However, my Mrs. was going with a friend and so my 5 year old and I stayed to watch... thankfully through the whole movie, I might add. Well acted, only as much dialogue as the intelligent needed. Thinking of one review that seemed to want pointless nattering. Beautifully shot and a movie where 3D did make it a bit better yet. Best of all, a truly great version on an old tale that had been told the old way enough times already. Whether I liked her or not (Jolie), Maleficent couldn't have been played better. Best movie I recall all year and I almost didn't go! Thanks real people who put their reviews up here as well. 'Professional' critics have become virtually useless. Can't imagine what they didn't like here but clearly they are more about politics than real movie reviews. Power to the Cinemaclock reviewers... the real opinions that count.

I recently re-watched this movie after forgetting whether I liked it or not, and discovered once more why I completely forgot about this movie. The movie and characters are beyond cheesy, and there's just to twist to the plot. Dantes spends 1h20 min in a jail cell, 20 min as Count and maybe 15 min to fully accomplish his revenge. Really? So much for a climax (although to be fair, Dantes and the old mentor were very well played). If you're really looking for a movie based on vengeance but with a solid plot line, watch "The Mask of Zorro" with Antonio Banderas instead.
