3.0 out of 5 stars amazingly artificial, 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zandalee [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
I took this just because I am a fan on Mr Cage (not in the sense of a female reviewer above, though). Everyone here seems not to believe his/ her own acting. The dramatic ending is expected about mid-way. Recommended only to real fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars great Rhythm and Blues, 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this was a very pleasant discovery. This is the sort of soothing music that makes you fell better - excellent while having dinner with friends: it is there, but not intrusively. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars do not mingle with mafia, 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hoffa [1991] [DVD] (DVD)
The bottom line is: watch out when mingling with mafia. At lest this is what the end of this movie suggests, even if Hoffa's actual disappearance remains a mystery.
Jack Nickolson is clearly great in this role, but I was particularly impressed by Danny de Vito (who also directed the movie) that, for once, plays a serious role.
It is a very good movie - recommended even if it is a bit long.


Two For The Money/Scent Of A Woman [DVD]

3.0 out of 5 stars one good, one so-so, 7 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Two for the money" should hardly deserve a review: it is the type of movie one can bear only after, say, a 1 hour long run in the rain when exhaustion prevents one from doing anything else than staring at a screen. It does not deserve more than 2 stars.

"Scent of a woman" is another business, definitely a great movie. It would deserve 4 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please do not have great expectations, 7 Mar 2011
I would say the most curious aspect of this movie is that Maryl Streep accepted her role. Apart from this, the "plot" hardly exists: it would have been so simple to run a DNA test on the 3 potential fathers to quickly identify the real one. We would have been relieved right away, and spent our time in better ways, such as listening to the "best of ABBA" CD while washing the car. I rate this 2 star only for respect to the swedish band who managed to strike the world with a significant numbers of hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Nickolson, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Five Easy Pieces [DVD] (DVD)
This is an excellent movie with Nickolson playing his favourite character type. It is amazing how well he manages to convey internal troubles, anger, passion, mood changes, just through his face in a steady take. I found myself tense and waiting for an outburst of violence at any point in time during the movie.
About half way, the movie turns into a sort of road movie, which is one of my favourites. Besides, it shows excellent pictures of 70's America, which are now classics.
I believe it is in the 70's that America gave the best of its movie production. Forget "Mission impossible nn". To be noted this is the second Nickolson movie, following Easy rider.
Finally, all other roles are extremely well played - including poor girlfriend Ray who will be left unfairly stranded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Absolute Power [1997] [DVD] (DVD)
This was a really nice surprise. I do not think it is one of the most rated or known Eastwood's movies, but I believe is one of his best. It is clearly backed up by a strong plot by D. Baldacci. Side roles are extremely well played e.g. Ed Harris and Laura Linney. Perhaps the only real weakness in the plot is that in the affair the US president is involved. This seems to me a rather far shot, perhaps it would have been sufficient to take some other high rank political figure to be more realistic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enjoyable movie, with a number of likable characters (even the bad guys), fast-paced dialogue (subtitles on are recommended for non-English viewers), and an impressively confident Travolta - who plays the role that suits him completely. Mind you, this is no Oscar winning movie, but it is entertaining. The soundtrack is good too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time killer, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Be Cool [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Not as good and smart as "get shorty", slightly worn out, however this does help kill time, also for the fast-paced dialogue. There is not much of a story, despite it is based on a novel, and sometimes it really slows down (e.g. the stage shows by the singer could easily be removed). The number of side roles that actually provide a good performance should be noted. Finally, it is remarkable how Travolta manages to get to the end without being shot or punched.

2.0 out of 5 stars only partially happy, 11 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a Powershot for many years, one of the first, and was very happy about it. That's why I decided to go for this. However, I found it as slow as my first one when turning it on, in between shots, or reviewing pictures. No improvement was made. I could live with that although a bit disappointed. What I like less however is the colour quality, which is on the cold side. I used to like Canon cameras just because they give on average warmer tones. The end result is that I feel like using my old Powershot!
