Mai 09
"This kind of film requires us to be very forgiving, and if we are, it promises to entertain. Angels & Demons succeeds."
75% - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Plucking the same violent, occult strings as "Da Vinci" while avoiding its leadenness, Angels keeps the action coming for the best part of 139 minutes."
70% - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"Less turgid and aggravating than its predecessor, this cleverly produced melodrama remains hamstrung by novelist's Dan Brown's laborious connect-the-dots plotting and the filmmakers' prosaic literal-mindedness in the face of ripe historical antagonisms, mystery and intrigue."
60% - Todd McCarthy, Variety
More entertaining than "The Da Vinci Code," but still tosh.
40% - Kim Newman, Empire

Com a grande decepção que foi The Da Vinci Code, nem sei muito bem se hei-de ir ver A&D ao cinema. Li os dois livros e achei que eram boas obras de entretenimento. A sua mais-valia é mesmo essa componente e o facto de quando estamos a ler parecer que estamos a ver um filme, pela forma como Dan Brown vai alternando a acção entre capítulos. Ora, se isso não é aproveitado na adaptação ao cinema então tudo se perde na transposição.
As críticas, vindas dos EUA, são mistas. Ninguém diz que o filme é péssimo, mas também não há grandes elogios.

Mai 09
"Paced at warp speed with spectacular action sequences rendered brilliantly and with a cast so expert that all the familiar characters are instantly identifiable."
100% - Ray Bennett, The Hollywood Reporter
"Blasting onto the screen at warp speed and remaining there for two hours, the new and improved Star Trek will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana."
100% - Todd McCarthy, Variety
"The clever and infectious reboot of the amazingly enduring sci-fi classic, director J.J. Abrams crafts an origin myth that avoids any hint of the origin doldrums. That's because he rewires us back into the original Star Trek's primal appeal."
91% - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Vigorously played as a young man by Chris Pine, Kirk is a brilliant, sports-car driving, bar-brawling rebel who is finally shamed into joining Starfleet Academy."
88% - Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Ultimately, when the end credits roll, we're left with the sense that Star Trek represents a good beginning. As a film tasked with getting all the characters together, re-booting a timeline, and finding a way to return a veteran actor to his beloved role, Star Trek works."
75% - James Berardinelli, ReelViews

94% de críticas positivas (em 10) no metacritic e 8.3 no imdb este é um filme que promete. Nunca fui um adepto ferveroso do Star Trek, mas vi alguns espisódios e filmes. Inicialmente não estava com grandes expectativas, mas com os trailers e o buzz positivo fui ficando convencido.

Abr 09

"Overall, I can`t say I was too disappointed with WOLVERINE, as truthfully, I didn`t expect it to be very good. (...) While it wasn`t quite the train-wreck I expected, it was still a pretty average superhero flick, and definitely not a film I`ll be revisiting anytime soon." 5.5/10 - Joblo
"Fortunately, Jackman is well-matched with Schreiber, who can sneer with the best of them and wears fangs well. The two have three spectacular battles together before squaring off against a formidable enemy atop a nuclear reactor."
"The effect-laden showdowns feel more dutiful than daring, and the rare moments of fun are parceled out frugally, like precious nuggets of adamantium."
"Noisy and impersonal, X-Men Origins: Wolverine bears all the marks of a work for hire, conceived and executed with a big budget but little imagination."
"It is Hugh Jackman's misfortune that when they were handing out superheroes, he got Wolverine, who is for my money low on the charisma list. He never says anything witty, insightful or very intelligent; his utterances are limited to the vocalization of primitive forces: anger, hurt, vengeance, love, hate, determination."

Com 44% no Metacritic e 7.1 no imdb, acho que a frase que vou concordar mais depois de ver o filme esta noite é: "I can`t say I was too disappointed with WOLVERINE, as truthfully, I didn`t expect it to be very good." do Joblo.
