5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! Reminicent of a Bergman films, esp. "The Virgin Spring,", May 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Witch (Amazon Video)
No spoilers,

After reading reviews on IMDB and seeing so many one-star reviews, even though Rotten Tomatoes rated it at 90%, I almost passed this by. Then I saw one reviewer commenting on the music reminding him/her of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, mentioning composer Ligetti. He also commented on similarities to Kubrick's The Shining. I've heard those kinds of comments before about other films, it's usually hype and those films compared to Kubrick are not the greatest.

After seeing The Witch, on Amazon streaming, it immediately reminded me not of a Kubrick film, although there are apparent stylistic influences here and there, but of Bergman's "The Virgin Spring," not so much the specific storylines, but of the way it captures real-life horror.

No. It is not a traditional "horror movie," The bad reviews might be because of how the film was marketed and it was so unexpected, many people hated it. It is a serious film. My only criticism would be too short a length. I am working up the courage to watch it a second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very excellent! Perfect balance of character, action and spectacle., January 24, 2016
This review is from: Spectre 007 (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
One of the best Bond films. I finally, fully appreciate Daniel Craig as Bond. This film has exceptional photography and spectacle. So well made!

Starting with the massive Day of the Dead festival in Mexico City, the film does not hold back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Silly and pretentious---not Interstellar, December 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Martian (Amazon Video)
This movie drips arrogant and phoney "science." I wish I rented it rather than buying it, because I won't watch it again. It might have been a decent scifi book. Robinson Crusoe on Mars with "science is religion" subtext. It does have some good space walks and the climax is fun, but the overall mood is not camp enough to be camp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bargain on Amazon, December 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very well made. Great bargain on Amazon. I should have read the washing instructions before washing on warm. It also says do not tumble dry. I ended up drying in air half a day then drying in dryer on delicate. The result is some shrinkage which made it a little too snug for me. I suppose it will stretch a bit or i'll have to shrink a little. I bought a large and weigh 270 and 6 foot tall.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kubrick Treasure, March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I received my Book itcame wrapped in clear tight plastic sleeve. It was gorgeous. My first thought was that I should keep it sealed as the ultimate Kubrick momento. In my Universe this is priceless. because Kubrick's fingerprints are all over it.
The images in the book are wondrous and help reconstruct what Kubrick was thinking.
The film as finished by Speilberg is true to Kubrick in many ways, but I think had Kubrick completed the film, it would have Kubrick's greatest film, so when I watch the film I can't help but try to see it as Kubrick would have completed it. People may disagree but I think, the common critcisms of the film are backwards. I see Speilberg's ending as the bleakest possible, because I think Kubrick wanted David to "become a real boy"

At any rate this book is instantly a prized possession for those Kubrick fans like me. Don't hesitate to buy it.

The size was why too small, but started wearing them after losing weight. Worethem three times and the crotch seam fell apart. Cheaply made, but since I waied months to wear them, too late to return.
