Naturalistic art -- at its best


This movie gives you something. Most aerial shots make you wonder how they achieved them, both technically and artistically.And at the same time, you get physically close enough to the flying birds to see their muscles work and their eyes gaze forward, and this touching you, you start feeling and understanding their lives.Then the film will show you how some human activity is impacting the lives of moving birds, which we generally would know, but not exactly feel emotionally the way seeing it makes us.
What I liked the most about this film is that it is very artistic while at the same time very real, which are two things you don't get very often nowadays.
If you didn't love birds: watch this and you will.Don't hesitate, thinking that it'll be boring. It's not!Don't think you wouldn't watch it a second time. You will.

Beautiful...


This was a beautiful movie!
As I started watching the movie I was initially intrigued by the action sequences because of the beautiful choreography. Next, I savored a beautiful courtship sequence set in a desert...the scenery was fantastic...and the relationship full of fire. As the movie ended, I enjoyed a heart-wrenching and skillfully crafted tragedy reminiscent of Shakespeare.
On all facets...this is a beautiful movie.

awesome


i loved this movie. Vin is YUMMY! i like the scene of him in just the towel and when the next to the youngest called him daddy. this was a very awesome out of the way departure movie for a well known actor to do. you would think that most action movie stars like Vin would bomb out on a movie like this and i am glad that it worked out for him.

Stunning Cast Chemistry


Neither Jack Lemon nor Alan Arkin are particular favorites of mine, but each man was spectacular in Mamet's masterpiece of white collar sadism. The play itself is one of the greatest of the present generation, and this cast works so well toghether and the film is so well directed that the viewer is physically uncomfortable from the tension. In a way, it's something like a horror movie for adults with real life terrors. My only quibble with the production is the addition of the Alec Baldwin opening, which is not in the play. Baldwin acts here with as much subtlety as he is capable of, that is to say very little. The result is successful in showing the salesmens' pressures from the opening, but I've seen this done on stage without a Baldwin (thankfully) and the viewer can watch the stresses build which, to my view, is a superior approach. In emphasizing the excellence of Lemon's and Arkin's performance, I don't intend to downplay the work by Al Pacino or Ed Harris. They are at their customary best, but haven't outdone themselves as the other two performers did. Kevin Spacey acts like himself, as usual, and the Pacino character's diatribe toward him seems particularly apposite. This is one film that can't be missed. Since first seeing it, I've become a David Mamet fanatic.

World and Time Enough - movie DVD cover picture
an incredibly beautiful film - buy it


i first saw this film in 1996 and it helped me come out. i saw it again this year and it's still as beautiful.
the reason why i say buy this film is because it is one of the few times you will see a gay couple portrayed honestly, with dignity and without any of the scene frippery that seems to have to accompany most gay films.
i won't tell you anything about the story line but will say that this is a rare portrait showing that men can love one another fiercely, tenderly and beautifully. by concentrating on the issues the two men are facing rather than their relationship together we get a truthful portrayal of our love and any political points are reserved for the wonderful political art made by one of the characters.
i can't recommend this film strongly enough. it gave me something tangible to realise that men can love men beautifully before i came out and continues to sustain me now.
truthfully, the warmest, most truthful gay film i have ever seen

Hellraiser VI - Hellseeker - movie DVD cover picture
Think about the beginning.


Hellseeker actually is probably the 3rd best film of the series and for this reason. It needed to be made. For all you Hellbound fanatics look at it this way, Arthraxiah (the female cenobite) mentioned to Kirsty how they always kept finding each other and how it seemed inevitable. Well this movie finally set the finality of that, when Kirsty... albiet with the Cenobites help, commited premeditated murder. Kirsty was always bad. Selfish, prone to violence.... and this movie just cemented that.
Also, Hell on Earth, Bloodlines, and Inferno tried to go for the shock value horror icons of the series where this movie brought out the true nature. It is a dark look into ourselves and what we primortally desire. And Pinhead doesn't need to be ripping people apart through the movie to show that... the chains are just a sign of the most humiliating, suffering pain. Nothing more.

21 Grams - movie DVD cover picture
The redemption in last instance


This movie talks about contrasts, warmth against lack of expressiveness : the latinoamerican boundaries vs. the anglosaxon behavior : the whole conception about the basic requirements against the incomplet knowledge about his vital rank.There's a latinoamerican novel whose reading is very close related to 21 grams . I mean Rayuela from Julio Cortazar . You can read in a random order and the storytellnig is always perfect . Another important point to remark is the poem that Penn tells Naomi is from a living venezuelan poet Montejo .This is a detor film . A crossroad picture which links three different lives , three different worlds , theree different fates in a dramatical fact.The love appears as a happy son from the deepest regions from the tragedy and almost wins. The religion , the uncertainity about the life , the redemption , the memory , all that complicated puzzle is told with maestry , with poetic flowness , and accurate direction . The movie never falls in a melodramatic mood , it never let you down . There are always challenging and twists of fate who amazes the viewer through all the story.Penn plays the most difficult role of his career. Naomi makes the grade as a character actress and Benicio del Toro gives a very difficult around a man who suffers a true metamorphosis.The suggested omages , the clue shot about an empty swimming pool reveal the loneliness , the hopeless and the tragedy of that little town , with dark passages and a brilliant use of the color as an addittional actor.This film is a step ahead in 2003 and one of the best and intelligent films made in Hollywood.We really expect that this couple of director and guionist keep working together , 'because they have shown a new road and new possibilities of cinema expression.A winner film!

Great anime!!


This anime, Gravitation, is not for everyone, if you don't like the idea of 2 men in a relationship then i advise you not to watch this series. If you do I highly recommend this series, its extermely funny and not shy of kawaii romance. If you know what Yaoi means by all means! WATCH this anime!

Goldfinger (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Undoubtedly the best "official" Bond


The Bond films, with Sean Connery in the title role, achieved perfection by the third film, Goldfinger. Dr. No was rough around the edges and not very interesting, but From Russia with Love was an excellent follow-up. By Goldfinger, all the pieces were in place for the best of the Saltzman-Broccoli Bond movies.
The film is surprising in that it takes the original novel and improves on it rather than butchering it for the big screen (maybe the folks who do the Tom Clancy movies can learn a lesson from this.) The laser scene, which replaces the buzz saw from the novel, is now an immortal part of pop culture.
EON Productions had finally mastered the pre-title sequence and the opening credits with this movie. You have a short but exciting scene that features explosions and a battle to the death, followed by one of the most powerful and unforgettable songs ever sung for a movie.
Unlike the susbsequent Thunderball, Goldfinger's plot is short and concise. The movie just runs under two hours, and very little camera work is wasted on building mood or atmosphere. This movie is all fun. Gert Frobe puts on a great performance as the over-the-top villain, and Sean Connery is at his best. Honor Blackman puts on one of the best acting jobs by any Bond girl (although that's not a great feat.) Harold Sakai is impressive as the villainous Odd Job, making for a formidable foe that could not be matched until the introduction of Jaws in "The Spy Who Loved Me."
If you have a Friday night with nothing to do, go out and rent or buy Goldfinger. It's a roller coaster of excitement.
