I'm not gonna do a long review. As a 40 year adult i enjoyed this a lot. It was not as good as finding Nemo, but i had a smile on my face for almost the whole film.
For that reason alone i can't understand the bad critics. I don't do a lot of reviews, but i thought this film didn't deserve that much trashtalk. If you liked finding Nemo and didn't anticipate for a sequel, and you just take it with a light heart, you'll enjoy this one a lot. Don't listen to the negative reviews here. Go and see for yourself.
Ryan get's a moment of awakening and it's just beautiful but above all vary sad.
Just gonna contribute that the acting of Elijah Wood and Jason Gann is just superb. This show is just well above average then what's normally on comedy central.
I wanted to write a review because this episode just showed me something in my own life. It's a very sad thing it learn me, but the experience is so pure. Life can be a curse if your mind is not as most others. this show just gave me the biggest grieve i felt in years. Pls don't feel sorry for me. It's just an ode to how good this episode brought a certain problem in Ryans life.
What a great show. Its hard to say because i watched this episode just after i lost something that was related to this Epiphany moment in this show. have to give it a 10 ,,,
I missed a few episodes by watching it on TV. So i am watching it on a rerun now. But the finale season was so great with a beautiful ending. This alone deserves my thanks. So many of my favorite shows got cancelled in the past.
Great show, wonderful acting, pretty deep script. I love it and just wanted to tell you to give it a try. It's funny, it's sad. It's a bit strange. but there's real beauty too in in. Some nice little art.
But man, was this episode super exiting. I watched it yesterday and now i want to see it again.
This is a very promising episode that will work towards a great season finale.
if there is one thing to complain about, it's the wish for a bit longer seasons of the doctor. After last nights episode i want more...
The ending of this episode felt immense and tight. Capaldi, if i ever doubted , is just superb.
I am not a whovian, and i feel a shame to say i have not watched all episodes from the Tennant series. I am going but haven't come to that. I did fell in love with Matt Smit as the doctor, and i had troubles in my head when i saw Peter Capaldi the first time.
His first season was OK to good. I wanted to have more of an overall arc in the season, and that lacked a bit.
Now here we have a great opener for a new season. what a thrill ride i found it. Sometimes strange, sometimes dark, but again, never dull and always surprising. What a cliffhanger. I hope that there will be more arc related overall stories back in this next season(s). This opener however was great and i can't wait for the next one.
I was very surprised and watched this gem 2 times. It's not without some flaws and plot holes. But it's superb cinema entertaining.
I loved the acting and was glad i watched it last week for the second (sand of)time.
Because it's been in the rerun on the BBC , now 2015, i feel i need to say something about this show.
Just short. It's a great show. A bit slow paced. But definitely a bit of an odd one. I liked it a lot.
So maybe if people still write about it , maybe it will get a restart. But the chances of these things a very rare to zero. As with Stargate Universe , people who got hooked on these shows, will be punished when they pull it of the air.
So the only down point is that you are better of not watching it. It's not finished an probably never will be. A shame.
Where to start>! I have 510 hours of game play into my 360 file on the xbox, and i enjoyed a good 500 of them. So there is a real good game in here. It's big. It's open. Apart from a little clumsy fighting control with melee, i got along without any frustration. Maybe some negative reviewers felt the story was lame but if you're new to the genre it's very amusing. There is so many to do and to explore. And i think that did a bit too much. You can have so many different quest at a time. And i have at least 4 quest that i cannot complete. Cannot get the achievements for them. And after 510 hours game play its frustrating. Playing Fallout a while ago made me very happy to pick this up once more. Nearly not as many quests but the solid cracking game play was just refreshing. A little step backwards from Bethesda in my opinion. I cannot recall a bug in the whole game. Still love skyrim though. It has great replay value. I see myself playing it again. I am however afraid quest glitches will be around on the console and we have to deal with it. On the other hand. If you do not care too much about achievements there is plenty of content here that keeps you busy for many many good hours of game play. Decoraating my house was just amazing imo. Even with th bugs. If not for the bugs i gave it a 9.8.
First of all i want to say i didn't knew this was a sort of copy from an already existing show.
Just a short bit of who i am. Or more, how i feel. It will add something to the short review i will give about the show. Due to medical reasons it's not going too good with me. TV can make a difference in making the entertainment for time you need to relax. I can watch nice comedy shows on comedy central but i do not often laugh. So that's my mood since some time now. Depression can be a pain.
Now, this show i watched some episodes when i was a bit younger. Now every time when it is on comedy central the last months i have so much honest fun with this. I even zap away F1 to watch this. The chemical between the actors is just amazing. Johnny K and Jonnny K Jr are also father and son i real life. Then Martine Bijl as the wife. The humor can be so funny because they are all so much in their character. Also Pieter Lutz is such a great actor in the modest role he plays. The small details are just phenomenal.
If you are from Holland it will always be better then when you are not from here. thats the fact. This show is not near a 6 when it comes to rating. An 8 would be not out of place. Now i know it will take some time before this review will be read. It's a dutch TV show that has only fans in Holland i think.
Ow man how excited will the cliffhanger from season 2 be if this episode almost felt as if it was the cliffhanger to be.
First of all i want to be clear on one thing. I hope this show will have a worthy ending before it maybe gets canceled.
Now where are we? Ah, yes! Leonardo and company returned to Florence. And trouble! Lorenzo still is trapped. Not for long i hope. Trouble! Girolamo, with the things he did, finally got some respect from me as a character and i liked this twist. But where did he end? Yes, trouble. The other 'basterd' Carlo de' Medici.. ah Trouble. Twist again.
I enjoyed this episode a lot and the acting from the cast is just stunning. There are some solutions where Leo and the boys walk in through that aren't that spectacular. But the casting is just superb in my opinion.
Do i look forward to the final episode? mm I am huge fan of the new Battlestar Galactica. A show with an ending. Like it or hate it. It was stunning and well made. Story's need a beginning and an end. So i am looking forward to this show which i Hope will have some good seasons and not to be canceled. Well, the majority knows what i mean.
Episodes don't get rated a lot for each one apart. But when i saw 1 9.2 average from 150 people i knew they were right.
Not really a review. Just an add and some recognition for this show that has such a good story. You have to be in it from the beginning. It's becoming a big motion film because of the great cliffhangers and the overall story arc.
Don't miss out on this. !!! Artiste !!
No story. Barely dialog. Dumb acting from Clooney. And because it's just Clooney and Bullock the only thing i liked a bit was her acting. but that couldn't made up for this horror of a movie.
Without the end title screen the film lasts 80+ minutes. The first five looked like space odyssey 2001. In comparison to time. 70 minutes there was something going on. But no story. I really ask myself how many turds vote this film above average. And are some involved in the film industry? Since Nespresso Clooney got drunk. This film as an abomination. There was no script i think. Just some guys having some cool CGI and took some disaster orbit shots of debris. NO STORY AT ALL. Man i miss Battlestar Galactica 2003.
This film got 7 Oscars and i really wonder for what? Only some CGI looked cool. The rest of the film is very bad. And so not believeble. First time I say this on IMDb but this was not worth the time i spend on it. Make up your own mind but my advise, stay away from this flick.. Its a waste of time.
Now, anyone who stated that the acting isn't good here has a cloudy mind. It's a bit comparable with Game of thrones. Now some may say GOT is the better show. maybe. But Da Vinci's demons is far more entertaining without it becoming less serious. After episode 2 i had to watch the other episodes because it's 1 big story. You have to watch the whole show. That alone makes it already a show you get hooked on easily. Leonardo, the Medicis', Lucretia, etc, beautiful acting, really great from all of the cast. I was even surprised by how good it was.
There is so much i want to tell about the story but i don't like spoiler reviews. You definitely must not withdraw with attempting to see this show, based on the first bad reviews. Clearly that happens here a lot in the beginning by people who clearly have other intentions.
At last i want to give a small hint about the music. Bear Mccreary from Battlestar Galactica, the Walking Dead and more, again is brilliant here. The story, the acting, the music, its a tread to watch and hear.
review maybe getting updated .
And although i see this film has a reasonable rating i really found it more worth that that.
First of all, the director, i never heard of Saul Dibb. I see he has not much on his record when i searched him here. But my God what a well made, constantly enternaining drama. I liked almost everything about it. Especially the performance from Keira Knightley. A very powerful one that still leaves me speechless for now.
Only thing that i would of liked to see a bit more where Ralp Fiennes personal dissisions he hade to make in this film..
Update: I must engage you to really see this one. Have to add in my update that it just moved me deeply, made my shed a tear, but also mad ma angry at times. And isn't that what a brilliant film is all about. Again, all the compliments to Keira Knightley. I hope she gets these messages through somewere because she is so more talented then i thought when wactching Pitates of the Carabian, a real enlightment to watch. Enjoy .
If you like films like the fast and the furious though i think this isn't for you.
That said, this film isn't a feel good movie and i agree that it sometimes is hard to identify yourself in the characters.
However the little story and the absolute phenomenal acting from the cast makes this to a film well worth watching. The guy who plays Igby does a very good job and the rest from the cast is also doing their part.
It's absolutely no waste of time to watch. Just don't expect to have a good light laugh direct after the film. I give it a solid 8.
First i thought it was just fake, or to tease the viewers. But it actually takes itself serious.
The story is nothing wrong with. And the cheap settings and CGI , well i think that is done on purpose. I have to say that if you're a fan of the first Star Trek, you will like this. It stays very close to it's roots.
But the acting is terrible. Kirk and Spock and Scotty. very awful. And Grant Imahara was better doing geeky stuff in Mythbusters. He does a terrible job in acting.
To be honest. I watched this 1 episode because there is a small roll from 1 of my greatest actors in the world in it. Jamie Bamber. He stole my heart forever with his role as Lee Adama in battlestar Galactica.
I wonder what this wonderful actor himself thinks when he saw the end result of this?
I don't say don't watch. it's personal. For me it wasn't good. If the acting was better i could grow into the old way of putting this up, even may like it.
Sorry Jamie Bamber but i can't rate this one higher than a 4. Even tho you are a favorite in my heart.
Of course that's not the flaw of the site or the makers/owners. But the sort of people that give a rating to a film or show doesn't say anything to me anymore.
Just read the handful of reviews on this and don't look at this absurd rating. This film has soul and emotion and beauty and art in it.
Don't gonna spoil anything. Just please , watch it. it's a great film with a warm hart.
Very good performances from all the actors. Thus i also do not share the opinion from the end rating so far.
I myself found this film very intriguing. For that i cannot understand it's low rating.
In my town are 4 cinema's but only 1 brings out the more alternative films that just don't really fit the mass of the people. I do not feel myself more than anyone else. But when i go to see a movie in this theater i always feel that i am among most aware and intellect intelligent people. I do not have that in a normal cinema where the next batman film is been played. ( i liked the last 3 batman movies very much tho). But it's different.
When i walked out of the cinema watching this film i had very mixed and strange feelings. I didn't really knew what to think or feel. And i think that is a good thing. It is not a microwave meal to take away.
I can imagine that some people found the strangeness of the film a disappointment. Little example. When i walked out of this cinema some years ago, seeing eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, i had this same kind of feeling. Not exactly the same of course, but a certain kind of confusing that can be very cool in a movie.
Please people, don't let you lead by the ratings and give this film a chance. There is some art in here.
It's definitely not a very ordinary film, but for me it was well worth the watch and to be baffled. i hope i spelled that correct. See it and experience.
As a fan i am prejudged of course, but the first episode promises very much. It has a good atmosphere around it.
With David Eick and Bear McCreary mixed in the soup in this show, it will be without a question of a doubt very top notch.
The acting is solid, the CGI is staggering. It was a little getting used to, to the new William Adama. That's just personal, because i liked the small role of the old actor who played in the minisodes very much. His eyes in the cockpit of that viper, that one moment(the fans know what scene i mean), they where so very alike those of Edward James Olmos . But after seeing this spin off it's long forgotten.
I am hooked again.
Just one thing. Please don.t cancel this one!!
