    5/5

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1253864/

    What an awesome film!

    Better than "300"!!

    $75 Million Budget, Grossed over $217 Million so it's not a flop by the 2.5x Hollywood rule!!

    Bring on the Sequel!!

    Yesterday i Watched steven spielberg's TINTIN movie,

    I enjoyed it even if i sometimes felt the movie betrayed tintin charachter.

    there is too much action, tintin is always carrying a gun and Haddock is not at all what i expected...

    don't get me wrong, i liked the movie and i'll watch the next one, but i'm a little disapointed.

    my rating :

    3,5/5

    The Bodyguard (1992)

    4/5

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103855/

    Whitney Houston's smashing film debut.

    Watching this movie reminds all of us how one person can rise and fall from grace and fame so quickly and how life is short and fleeting and we are all on this earth for a short time.

    The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0983193/

    I had high expectations for this film and yet, it turned out to be one of the most tedious movies I've seen in a long time.

    First, it just keeps going and going - like the Falcon chase sequence; it was totally prolonged with no excitement and interest whatsoever.

    Then, there is Tintin who needs to explain everything he is going to do to the audience before he does it - as if the audience is dumb!!

    I am not sorry to give this a 2/5.... one of the most awful, chaotic animated feature films I've seen in a long time!!

    Hugo (II) (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970179/

    Once again, another movie that suffered from a deceptive trailer.

    The trailer made you think that the Automaton was a magical door to a different world and yet, the story had nothing to do with it.

    The story we got was long and boring and uninteresting!

    This was nominated for Best Picture?

    You must be joking!!

    The last movie I'd complained about having a deceptive trailer, it was "Hancock"!!

    There need to be a law about truth in movie trailer advertising.

    Just like Adventures of Tintin - another over hyped and over rated film of 2011, I give this 2/5 too!!

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0448694/

    stay away from this!

    there is nothing to see here!

    just a big noisy exposition of nothing!!

    another over-hyped movie of 2011, along with Adventures of Tintin and Hugo, that gets a

    2/5

    from me!!

    Then you saw another trailer as I do.

    For me it was a nice homage to the beginning of the film.

    This was nominated for Best Picture?
    And quite rightly.

    John Carter (2012)

    Bad dialogues, uninspired action scenes and confusing story. Thank God I read the comic some time ago, because I would be completely lost. What, who, why? Those were the questions I was asking myself while watching... and the movie barely explains anything. Visually the film is fine, but nothing that we haven't seen before.

    I really wanted to like this movie, ehh

    2.5/5

    Zeppelin (1971)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068014/

    3/5

    a World War 1 movie with a good premise but it suffered from lack of character development, a thin plot line and slow pacing;

    even the aerial battle sequence can't save this movie.


    Men in War (1957)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050699/

    4/5

    hard hitting little known Korean War film with an excellent cast and interesting characters.

    if you like your war films realistic, this anti-war war film is for you!!


    Crime d'amour aka Love Crime (2010)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1459012/

    4/5

    well made female revenge movie;

    if you like your women scheming and conniving, this is a hell of a thriller.

    it's too bad that Brian De Palma wants to insult this movie by remaking it and considering his failed track record with the Thriller genre these past 14 years, it will definitely sucks!!

    Outland (1981)

    4.25/5

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082869/

    I don't care what negative things do the critics say about this film - this is one of my favorite Connery's films outside of the James Bond franchise!

    This is also Connery's comeback film... without it, he would never had been cast for The Untouchables and win a Best Actor Oscar for that film!!

    Trespass (2011)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1674784/

    there once was a good director named Joel Schumacher.

    His hit movies ranged from St. Elmo's Fire to The Lost Boys to The Client to Falling Down to A Time To Kill....

    then came the late 90s and Joel's directing career faltered with Batman Forever and Batman and Robin and 8mm...

    that's when Joel should had known to stop directing and find a new career; but he persisted on directing more films and the more films he directed, the more crap he made!!

    Crap like Phone Booth and Veronica Guerin and Bad Company and The Number 23 and a couple of other low budget Horror Porn!!

    The only single movie directed by Joel from the mid 90s to 2011 worth a look was Tigerland.

    Trespass is not much better than the crap Joel's directing skills put out in the 90s and 2000s.

    The plot is so rehashed from previous films: peppered with poor dialogue and the absurd situations that are thrown in for good measure, one after another just to string the plot along for 90 min!!

    Nicole Kidman is wasted. Nicolas Cage is wasted. Even the young talented actress who plays their daughter, Liana Liberato is wasted.

    There is a lot of crying and screaming and screaming and crying throughout the entire film that you'd just want to scream at them (get out of the house!! you have your chance!! go, you idiot!!) and then you want to cry (why am I watching this film? what did I do to deserve to be tortured by this horrendous film?)

    My rating: 1/5

    This is my next to lowest rated film I've seen this year:

    0.5 above Drive;

    .25 below Trust and 1.0 below The House of Devil!!

    I guess crappy movies love crappy movies company too!!

    My advice to Schumacher, the same advice I gave him after Batman Forever and then again after Phone Booth:

    Stop directing! Quit your Day Job!!
