Crop And Save
It has some essential ingredients for a good movie, such as some good performance by Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis, and a good cinematography, but awful script and bad directing. The movie is full packed with stupid gaping holes in the plot, which cannot be digested. The character of the detective is shallow despite the acceptable performance of Gyllenhaal. There are many attempts to make the movie deeper than it is, but in my opinion failed big time. Also,the film had way too many wasted moments. Most of it did nothing to move the story along.Overall, it's disappointing, and I felt I was the prisoner for two and a half hour.
The ZERO was invented for this movie
There is absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing worth more than zero, except a 7/10 for 7 minutes of David Carradine. I waited with my son for even one scene that might redeem our pitiful time that was stolen from us minute by minute. All the ingredients of the movie are rotten including acting, location, scenery, script, music, direction. I wish I can say the special effects were awful, but there is none. I even couldn't tell in which country the events took place. No matter how low the budget was, I believe it is too much. I do tolerate many lame movies sometimes out of curiosity, but this one was intolerable. DO NOT EVEN THING ABOUT IT, if you value your time and self esteem.
Good performance by Bullock and smart yet hard plot
Bullock was the only performer in the movie and she did a convincing and noticeable role, the other actors were fillers. The plot was good and somehow new, only if you interpreted the way I did. Not saying it is "the correct way", but it is the way that made sense to me. Thursday, the day she knew about her husband death and the following 2 days did not actually happened, they were premonitions she had consecutively before she woke up Monday and Tuesday mornings. The glass doors of the porch had stickers which she never put in reality, also the other events we mingled as in a dream or "premonition" (I never had one!). The events on Wednesday including her failed efforts to prevent her husband death, were because she somehow in her mind gave him a chance on the Sunday that already passed to redeem himself and she did forgive him. That was the only thing she was capable of changing which helped her to move on, however pregnant? How and whom aren't important.
V for Vendetta (2005)
Fantastic and entertaining MOVIE
If we are debating political point of views and morals it is something else and many of us probably would have different perspectives about this movie or any others. But if we are talking Art and movie making, this is a swell of a movie. I would consider it a mix of Sin City and the Matrix without the distraction of the over-done special effects and digital techniques. The performance of all actors was "comme il faut". Natalie Portman's emotional takes were surprising, Mr Weaving was a performing poet as if he was in one of Shakespeare plays. All the other casts were so convincing, specially Stephen Rea who played the duality of loyalty and doubt. Briefly you get out of the theater feeling you have really been to the MOVIE.
Inside Man (2006)
A very weak plot
It's a waist to indulge such great actors in such a weak and boring movie. Besides all the unanswered questions posted in the other comments, what's so difficult about capturing the robbers? Just eliminate the bank workers, see who was at the bank-from all the cameras' footage angles-prior to the robbers entry and you have those extra 4 remaining robbers among the hostages. Where is the suspense every body is talking about? It was so obvious the moment the hostages were asked to change into this identical uniform that they were all going to walk out the front door... seen it many times. At least Mr. Spike Lee could have seasoned the movie with some good music score and artistic shooting. The Movie is not worth it. Pronto!
The Time Machine (2002)
Good effects, poor script.
A very good special effects with a poor plot. I kept loosing what the movie is about. Was it; why we cannot change the past or how the future will be like or that we can and should change the future. The movie would have been great if the director focused on one.
