Stain Stain napisał(a) o The Wizard of Oz

Not everything works -- some of the songs are not as well known as "Over the Rainbow" for good reason (e.g., the one sung by Lion about being King of the Forest), and how kiddified everything is gets irritating sometimes. However, most of it holds up surprisingly well, despite the extreme familiarity of the material. Garland is perfect in the lead, and I could listen to her sing all day

_Natural Born Killers_, _Blue Velvet_, and _The Man Who Would Be King_ are all excellent movies IMHO. I hope they will float your boat.

Just for starters: _The Distinguished Gentleman_, from way back when Eddie Murphy was actually funny. More later, perhaps, when I'm not about to keel over from fatigue... :-)

Wow. What an INCREDIBLY boring documentary

There's much to enjoy about this film, but it's over three hours long, and after the two-hour mark I began to grow weary of it. I know this is a totally blasphemous opinion, but the picture -- and individual scenes therein -- just go on... and on... and on... and on...

Well... I figured out long ago that the overwhelming majority of juvenile offenders are sociopathic little creeps who ought to be locked away somewhere so they can only victimize each other. I don't want to see a movie about them. Almost all the characters here are exactly that, including the protagonist. Only Eric Gurry as Horowitz saves this movie from being two hours of GRIM AND UNRELENTING (just like Rosenthal's other movie, _Halloween II_); Horowitz is at least a smart, likable sociopath

Stain Stain napisał(a) o Shortbus

Mitchell's idea of a Spike Lee-style multicharacter New York comedy/drama. Lots of explicit sex -- most of it gay -- but many, many varieties of sex make it in here; at least the top 20 out of the book _Joy of Sex_. There's also a fair bit of humor, and pathos... and there's musical numbers as well. Like in so many of these semi-improv movies, it kinda loses all threads in the end as it fumbles around for a decent ending. May be the most thoughtful movie with this much nudity ever made

This was deliberately shot on average-guy's-camcorder quality video. While I understand making that sort of choice for this material, I became rather tired of looking at the rather cruddy image. (We see better-looking stuff on YouTube these days.) It also seems like the characters often act like dopes just to set up another horror/violence/splat sequence. All that being said, it's so refreshing to discover a previously unseen horror picture that's actually scary, and suspenseful

Hyperstylized to the point of being irritating. God damn teenagers are boring. I found them even more boring when I was one

Stain Stain napisał(a) o Transformers: The Movie

Wow, this really sucks. Really awful animation, right down to the "afterschool cartoons for kiddies who don't know any better" level. Howlingly bad dialogue. Painful lapses in basic logic (i.e., why does Optimus Prime bother to morph into a truck when he can fly, and therefore maneuver in combat much more efficiently?). Sub-Europe-quality '80s rocknroll songs, which are shoehorned into the movie every ten minutes or so... usually during the constant (boring) action sequences

Stain Stain napisał(a) o Le voyage à travers l'impossible

Many ancient films actually look better as time goes on. This is not one of them. The primary point of interest is how primitive all this stuff is, compared to what we 21st-century film buffs are used

Stain Stain napisał(a) o The Tillman Story

I feel a bit ambivalent about a movie that tells us that the media cannot be trusted. That being said, this is a rather good documentary... not only about Tillman himself and what he was, but many larger issues... quite a few of which are distinctly not resolved by picture's end (a feature rather than a bug, here). Like so many documentaries, this is a thinking man's movie -- ironically, one about a football star. There is much to enjoy, and there is much to masticate

The musical numbers are fine. The problem is the ridiculous story. Every time I see two star-crossed young lovers at center stage in a movie (again), I want to walk in with a megaphone and exclaim, "LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADES!!!!!" at them. Also, it's hard to take a story full of characters who indulge in dowries and caste systems and stuff about whores being EVIL very seriously. There's a reason we don't have customs like that in the US (at least the first two); they're barbaric

P.S. I hit the men's room after this movie was over, and I found myself in a roomful of old men. One man at one of the urinals was a wizened, hunched-over old man with a hearing aid in his right ear. The man at the urinal next to him just casually asked him, "Was it like that for you when you were at Dachau?" I mean, holy shit. I was standing there RIGHT NEXT to a man who had actually survived the Nazi death camps. I will never forget that. I didn't speak to him... but what could I say? "So

Yeah, man. It's so unjust that you, a Pole, have not seen it while this American has. There are always these obscure little films that various critics praise to the skies, yet you have to watch your local movie listings like a hawk to have a chance to catch them on the real screen. This movie is at a grand total of one cinema in all of LA, and it'll probably only be there for about a week... There's not a hell of a lot of real cinema playing in the United States during the summer, too... especially

Stain Stain napisał(a) o A Film Unfinished

Holocaust movies have been done and done, but this is informative and still engaging. With Holocaust deniers all over the globe, I suspect that too much documentation is not enough

Stain Stain napisał(a) o The Food of the Gods

I don't really mind the budget special effects. The chief problems are (a) the square-cube rule, and (b) the rather silly script. Still, this is better than the similar Bert I. Gordon epic _Empire of the Ants_, and many thanks to Ms. Lupino for assaying such a thankless role with such conviction
