Cudos to Ben Kingsley who is absolutely believable as a Russian cop.


I've been touting Transiberian for a couple years now it seems. The close, confined spaces on the train remind me a bit of a Hitchcock flick. Not Strangers on a Train specifically, but there's that. But a little of how rearwindow is jammed in that one room for so long too.
Then it blows open outside, in the harshly lit white snow with Emily Mortimer and the spaniard guy (who's great).
Just a really well done almost old fashioned suspense flick.

This is one of the best 'gay' movies of all-time. Of course, that's a really short list. I will go ahead and reveal that early plot twist, because I don't want some of you retards getting mad at me when you see a dude spitting c*m out of his mouth.

Lots of good, obscene comedy here. But the movie doesn't really come into it's own until the second half.

7/10

agreed, i thought it was excellent. maybe carreys best performance ever, certainly mcgregors. shame it got banned from u.s cinemas for being too gay cause it deserved to do very well.

Pretty good movie, better than I thought it would be. And the 3-D is very nice in this movie, very well used.

It's been awhile I disliked a movie so much.

I admit that I haven't read the book, but I sort of figured the movie was in trouble when Wahlberg shows up, but he turns out to be one of the least of the movies problems.

As annoyed as I was by the tone shifts in the movie, it still could have been better of Peter didn't insist on dragging the movie out with so many effects. It's not that the running time is actually that long, but he is so obbessed the effects that he fails to develop the characters that could have grounded this movie in at least a bit of realism. The loving father angle is never full developed. I'm sorry, but one or two conversations doesn't really show that a father loves his daughter and will go to any lengths. And yeah, even if you overlook that, the Len Fenerman barely has spoken to Susie and yet he is broken beyond repair by her being missing?

Were supposed to understand that people deal with tragedies in different ways, but how can you care when the angles aren't developed? You don't have to detail every little thing, but make it somewhat believable And the Susan Sarandon character was terrible. She pops in and out of the movie to add a few lines and drank up all the booze. What the hell is that?

The missing girl and Tucci gave good efforts, but it seemed like everyone knew this was turkey and just cashed the check. To me, this movie is only a step above Uwe Boll's offerings.

2/10

DOA: Dead or Alive- It's pretty much what you expect it to be. Some cool fight scenes. Some corny ones. The whole premise is corny, but you should know what you are about to watch when you choose to watch this. I enjoyed it. It's just 1.25 hours of fun, with a couple of things to make you laugh here and there. There were hot chicks, so it is easy to watch. The actors aren't bad (for the most part), just the writing doesn't allow you to see it, really. It did actually have a story.

Enjoyability- 7/10. Something fun you can watch when you're just chillin'
Quality- 4/10

Brilliant film. It may all be set within one room, but it has you gripped from start to finish. Highly recommended.

I thought I had Chinatown on DVD but I think I misplaced it, hence the downloading. And I forgot about Polanski, thanks for the heads up. As you can see, I'm on a Hitchcock kick right now.
