    A very interesting teenage/pseudo coming of age drama, The Virgin Suicides has its strengths and weaknesses. First off, the acting is greatA very interesting teenage/pseudo coming of age drama, The Virgin Suicides has its strengths and weaknesses. First off, the acting is great from all the kids and adults, though I do not know if I am buying Kirsten Dunst as a 14 year old here. Just saying. Great acting and fit the beauty required for the role, but having been 14, I can confirm no 14 year old looked like that when I was 14. Anyways, the film is gently directed by Sofia Coppola and she handles the sensitive subject matter very well. The story is very interesting and very well told. I like the handling of the narration, as well. Narration can sometimes feel unnatural, but it felt like that was the only way to tell this story and it never really messed with the flow of the film. In fact, it really helped the flow of it. Ultimately, the film has a very distant and melancholy feel to it, which really helps drive home the story and really makes it hit you. However, that same distance can prevent you from getting into the film. You feel as if you are arm's length away from the film and prevented from getting any closer. In the context of the film, this can be effective, but in terms of pure enjoyment, this film would benefit from a feeling of intimacy that would really pull the viewer in. Regardless, The Virgin Suicides is a good film that tells this depressing story and makes it feel almost dreamlike and beautiful in a really twisted way. Full Review »

    Mike Leigh’s ‘beauty and the beast’ is meticulously detailed with a haunting score and breathtaking cinematography- whether billowingMike Leigh’s ‘beauty and the beast’ is meticulously detailed with a haunting score and breathtaking cinematography- whether billowing locomotive smoke or pastel sails at sunset. Mr. Spall’s brilliantly captures J.M.W. Turner - a self-described grotesque looking man emitting a cacophony of snorts and grunts between astute observations and animalistic sexual encounters. Supporting characters are forever etched in our memory. In contrast, an artist obsessed with capturing light lived a dark and dismal existence. In conclusion, the more enlightened we become the less we want to know him. Full Review »

    Nonsense science coupled with a glacial pace of events and dull, predictable dialogue makes for a stinker of a movie. Luckily I was able toNonsense science coupled with a glacial pace of events and dull, predictable dialogue makes for a stinker of a movie. Luckily I was able to catch a long nap during the endless tedium of this artless lump of a movie so I was spared some of the pain. For any serious fans of hard scifi based even loosely on current theory, this is a waste of time. Full Review »
  5. Is this as good as the Lord of the Rings? No. But its as close as the Hobbit films could possibly come. Unlike the first 2 films which hadIs this as good as the Lord of the Rings? No. But its as close as the Hobbit films could possibly come. Unlike the first 2 films which had whole subplots that were filler and bad filler at that, this is at least one whole movie. And while not perfect, it does do middle earth some justice.
    The good. The acting by character leads. There is a scene where Legolas is fighting some orcish spawn, and you just know minus the CG its probably all green tennis balls. But he makes it feel convincing.
    The scenery is beautiful. The mine. The town they move into. The world feels real and material.
    There are some things I'd like to complain about. It seems like there is one scene in each film of the hobbit trilogy which is required to defy all belief. Such as the "dwarf barrel roll" of the last film. This film has that too. Not to spoil anything, but there is a tower and a falling staircase reminiscent of early Nintendo games. Also the film is a bit excessive (to the point of ridiculous) on the animals. I'm thinking the war "hog," the bats, and of course the bunny sled makes a return.
    All in all. You know exactly what you are getting into watching this movie. And its a good bridge between the Hobbit films and LOTR
