36 min | Animation, Short, Fantasy
wow so as a fan of short films, and a fan of dekeukeleire...im not so much of a fan of this. his technique cant be questioned, ahead of his time, and still ahead now in some respects. in terms of the film...at times i thought i understand where he was going, then seconds later realized i couldnt be more off. i even later realized that i dont think he knew where he was going with this. Comabt de Boxe blows this away. oh and why was this 36 minutes? was it meant to be a play on the title? i dont really rate shorts, unless they are exceptionally amazing...and this isnt

Statham and Ja Rule yet Pras gets the lead? Why they didnt give Statham the role that pras has, makes no sense to me. Pras might have been good...with less lines and no need to show emotion...or act. Without Ja or Statham its a 3/10. 4/10

ok, so i loved it until the last 30 minutes or so. the plight and self delusion of american "perfection", the loss of all innocence and self worth to the point where destruction of self is the ultimate goal. amazing. but whappened? it feels like they had a great idea and just had no way to finish it. kinda like an SNL skit. 6.5/10

so i was 12 or 13 when the first one came out and i remember loving it. it was a mixture slasher flick, comedy and above all it was just cool. i dont know if its because im older (im definitely not wiser) or if scream completely fell off the map, but this was very.... american pie 6. fine that was harsh but i mean, i expect to enjoy this more than the average film, but thats all it was average. hayden penwhatever was the highlight. i know, must be great right? 5.5/10

i mean GEEEZE golly wow was this bad. this is the one genre that is the hardest to mess up. mediocre acting, some gangsters, guns, maybe a car chase or two and the movie gets a 6/10. i do have to explain, the reason i wanted to see the movie at all was solely because of robbie gee. of course, he was in the movie for about 7 minutes and what a surprise, those were the best 7 minutes of the film. claire goose kinda surprised me, i assumed she would be as terrible an actor as everyone else in this was. none of the characters you care about, the story is overdone and overused, and worst of all it feels like a script. while i was watching this i could see them sitting at a desk just reading the lines to each other and patting each other on the back at how "deep and intricate" the plot lines were. shut up 3.5/10

Votes: 50,778 | Gross: $10.18M
impressed. i pretty much blindly like anything giamatti does (mostly cause of his dad...and his acting) but besides that, its just a nice movie. the kid was good, not amazing, but believable in the role which is more important. i think my favorite thing about the film is that they didnt give him some bs high school romance crap. i felt good after watching it. 7/10
42. The Goonies (1985)
