INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL
HAVING THE TEAM OF LUCAS SPEILBERG AND HARRISON FORD HOW CAN YOU LOSE. A GREAT AND FUN WAY TO END UP THE SERIES. HARRISON FORD FOR SIXTY FIVE LOOKS GREAT. UNDERSTAND HE DID MOST OF THE STUNTS. HAVING THE RETURN OF MARION IS GREAT. SHIA LEBOUF IS FANTASTIC. QUITE A TALENT. GRAB THE POPCORN AND ENJOY A FUN AND GREAT MOVIE. THE BLUE RAY KID
The Departed was another Martin Scorsese directed ganster movie which I found to be mediocre. Most of Scorsese's movies have been about groups of people associated for some criminal or other antisocial purpose. In this case, Scorsese placed a gang of police killers without skill or aptitude in bed with thugs. I awarded the movie three stars because of Jack Nicholson and Leonardo Dicaprio's distinguishable acting. Matt Damon and Alec Baldwin gave third rate performances. Also, in several scenes Baldwin appeared to have the sweating sickness characterized by profuse sweating. For example, look closely at the front and back of Baldwin's shirt in Baldwin scenes. Aapparently, Scorsese did not care or have the ability to deal with Baldwin.\n\nIn conclusion, I am afraid Scorsese's ability to produce entertaining ganster movies is at an end.
A title card says this King Arthur, grimly directed by Antoine Fuqua, is based on the latest research into the mythic past. Maybe so. But one can't help thinking the research that really counted was that into the more recent box-office charts.
Not the usual sticky sweet Snow White we all grew up with, this movie brings us to a land where rose gardens are not part of the bargain. I like the dance with the dark side, maybe not for the younger crowd, more for the older folks.
The talented Glazer keeps things crisp, clean and purposeful. The only flab on this film is around the waist of its sybaritic hero, a working-class crook who has finally gotten a taste of the good life, and doesn't want to lose it.
