    Just saw the abomination of Jane Eyre...



    Not only was the actress totally unsuited for the role, she made it totally obvious that you were watching a film whenever she was in a scene, and sadly that was like 90% of the movie. I guess people of polish descent can't think abstractly. Some scenes were really poorly played. There's no doubt Michael Fassbender and the other cast were negatively affected by Mia Wasuckowska's very obvious acting. The whole movie was negatively affected. A lot of scenes seemed rushed to compensate for her lack of insight into the role. It's only worth seeing for the scenery, which par the main actress, was pretty awesome.

    It's just sad to see so much effort by so many talented people go to so much waste...

    I would not watch a movie with a race-traitor.

    I saw A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey. Very nicely animated. Faces were based of off real actors, but looked completely different. I think Mel Gibson should utilize something like this in his Viking movie.

    I re-watched this recently with the intention of reevaluating it afterwards. Well, I have: I'm even less forgiving of its shortcomings than I was last time. I think Malick was indulged with this one because of the two excellent films he had under his belt already. He didn't have a story, he had footage. I don't hate that it's baggy, meandering; I love that in a film if it's intellectually engaging enough to pull it off. This isn't, though. It's typically stunning visually, like the rest of Malick's films. But it lacks the purpose and cohesiveness of the two which came before it. The cod-philosophical voiceovers would be laughable if they weren't so completely embarrassing that all your energy goes into cringing instead. Obviously, disappointingly, Malick is dumbing down what he really wants to say. The best parts by far are the combat scenes, when the characters are too busy fighting to muse about where love comes from and admire fallen leaves. Adrien Brody made me laugh whenever he popped up on screen simply because of his perpetually bemused looking, almost lineless character (he'd been led to believe that he had a main part in the film ).

    It's worth watching for the way it looks alone. Just soak it up and try to channel out the insipid voiceovers. Some aspects of this film skip dangerously close to pretentious, but it never gets that bad.

    I saw that on an airplane once, and I agree, it was awful. Jane Eyre is my favorite book, and I don't think that movie did it justice in the least bit. I also agree that it was Mia Wasuckowska's fault that it was such a failure; however, I don't think her Polish descent has anything to do with it. Some people just can't act.

    I personally love the Ruth Wilson and Toby Stevens version of Jane Eyre, though.



    I recently watched Die Fetten Jahre Sind Vorbei (English title: The Edukators), a German film starring Julia Jentsch (she starred in Sophie Scholl: Die Letzten Tage, which I loved), Daniel Brühl (he starred in Good Bye, Lenin!, perhaps my favorite movie of all time), and Stipe Erceg (this was my first time watching him). It's about these young, left-leaning people who break into houses and rearrange furniture to unsettle the rich, and end up kidnapping this one rich guy who catches them in the act.

    I thought it was a good film. The acting was strong, and the actors had good chemistry with each other. I could identify with all the characters, including the rich man they kidnap (a former hippie, turned über-capitalist). Apparently the international version is missing some scene at the ending present in the German version, and as a result, it's a really ambiguous ending. But I liked that. It added to the movie's thought-provoking aspects.

    I agree. Save for the scenery, which actually was a bit overdone, it was a big disappointment. However, you should not be so generous to Mia Wasikowska. It takes more than one person to sabotage a film to such a devastating degree. Trust me, she is not talented enough to do that. Besides, a good actor should be able to act in the face of anything, even a clueless co-star.

    I had recently purchased a Leni Riefenstahl DVD set pairing "Triumph of the Will(1935)" & "Olympia(1938)". I was totally blown away by the cinematography, which was years ahead of it's time, and the very powerful use of music by Wagner as the incidental music.
