Tahar Rahim portrays a fictitious Algerian black marketeer turned resistance fighter in Nazi occupied Paris. Loosely based on the life of Paris Mosque rector Si Kaddour Benghabrit (Michael Lonas,) and Algerian/Moroccan/Jewish singer Salim Halali. Yes.
Joe Carnahan does a great job with the story, Liam Neeson, and the wilderness; the wolves get a bad rap: better than average man vs. nature movie. BTW, nature doesn't care about you...
"You fragments." The master of the contemptuous sneer, Ralph Fiennes, at his moody bloody best, stars in his directoral debut: a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy. Surrounded by top shelf talent; Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, Brian Cox. Violent war action: with Shakespearean dialogue: yes! Watch it with the subtitles on.
Chow Yun-Fat, 1920s China, action, humor. Yes, it's long, but it's good: see it.
Bleak Norwegian drama about a 1915 boys reformatory / prison; Bastoy Residential School, staring Stellan Skarsgard and a cast of fine young lads. Strong nautical theme, shifting P.O.V..
Three good actors is a horrible movie; De Niro shows his age, Owen dons a moustache, and Statham phones it in. Crap.
Yes, it's good, but I love baseball and Brad Pitt, so what do I know? Wally Pfister makes it look great. Could someone please explain the appeal of Oscar nominee Jonah Hill?
Seth Rogen is slightly less annoying, possibly due to his bromance with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Kinda funny, decent treatment of a touchy topic: cancer. Cast includes Anjelica Huston: love her!

Ugly pile of crap. Just because you can make a movie, doesn't mean you should. Terrible.
Great poster, mediocre movie. The mixed martial arts fight scenes are good. Love Nick Nolte, but the family turmoil feels manufactured, and I didn't fall in love with any of the characters.
