Movie trailer


@nursepip agree with you 100%.. a wonderful movie.. no matter how many times i watch it, it always holds my attention... the suspense is great and the story actual surprised me how well it played out.
Had read a lot of poor reviews on this but I think it's one of Polanski's best.Have always been a Depp fan and the rest did fine here as well. I particularly found Lena Olin's portrayal of Mrs Telfar done with the passion it required. Definite suspense in story, lots of subtle undertones, visually striking, and ya just never know how Lucyfer is gonna turn up.
Dood I think this is one of the most underrated Johnny Depp Films, I love the occult, and I really liked this movie, if anyone has an affinity for the occult then check this out and follow the journey of a Rare book Collector/seller and he authenticates a book said to be written by the Devil himself, once he travels down the rabbit hole things will never be the same, full of mystery, suspense, intrigue, and good ole fashion creepiness...
The pace is slow because it is a suspense / mystery film. A 'slow' pace is almost to be expected. And the ending isn't nonsense at all. It is meant to symbolize that he has succeeded where Balkan and Tefler failed.
worst film, slow paced, non sense ending.
Don't waste your time!
writing, directing, acting and editing were all excellent but the camera work gave this flick its distinctive ambient mood - lighting, lenses and folks who know how to use a camera.
Now you got ME wanting to watch it again. This, Devil's Advocate, and End Of Days are a few of my faves.
hot dam' you all i swear..I REMEMBER THIS..gonna watch it again..without a lot of special effects and bodily fluids, THIS IS A SPOOKY FLICK.
WAR OF THE WORLDS- Im keeping this one fresh plus one. Actually I would rather give it a 7.5. I just don't think that it deserves an 8. Don't get me wrong. It is a great film. It was 2 hours of nothing but action. It was awesome. I just think that it is very very lacking. It doesn't really explain much of anything. Nothing about the aliens or the machines or really anything else. But it is very action packed, has great acting, and wonderful drama. A very very good film. It left a lot to your imagination. Which can be good or bad. After I spoke with a friend here at work, he said that that is the whole point of the story. That it is all left to your imagination. It is originally based on the radio broadcast. Which frightened all of America, because it sounded like live news over the radio. Until the end of the daily broadcast when they found out it was a radio show. But he told me that that is the whole point; that it is all left to your own imagination.

THE NINTH GATE- I gave this one an 8. I probably rather give it a 7.5 also. A very thought provoking story. It had my cousin and me wondering if this is actually a real book that the movie was made from. Maybe it is a real book and the story was just elaborated on (of course). It is very imaginative and I really did enjoy it. It is something that you can watch more than once.

Well today, thats it. Those are the only 2 movies that I have for now. Although last night I did watch Passion of the Christ. Which was awesome by the way. But I will rate that one on another occassion.
