A Biographical story of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. The movie starts with his young life and growing up with his father, Ralph, who raced for a living, but initially wanted more for his son. When Dale quits high school to start driving full time, his father aids him and shows a reluctant pride when he is initially successful. Armed with many of his father's philosophies, Dale pushed himself to be the best. His aggressive track mannerisms earned himself fans and detractors. Fellow racer Neil Bonnett was one of those long time friends whose death deeply affected Dale. Darrell Waltrip clearly was a detractor and the two men's rivalry is clearly depicted. Off the track, Dale's determination to make it impacts two marriages. Third wife Theresa was closer to racing and met Dale when he had started his rise into the Winston Cup circuit. The story also looks at his relationship with his children.

The movie makes us believe this guy was mentally disturbed as he conjures up the image of a faceless man, but there is no great payoff for such unecessary plot lines.

While it's closer to the cartoon it's based on (like Gadget is bumbling, Penny solving cases, Claw's face is not shown, etc), it's still horrid to sit through. I honestly think it's a bad idea to make a live action movie based on a cartoon I don't think kids watch today.

Allan C (es) wrote: Chevy Chase's best film and outside of "Vacation" is probably his only classic film. "Caddyshack" is a classic, but he was part of an ensemble and even that one had it's weak points. That may be too harsh, because he was in some funny movies like "Three Amigos!" "Spies Like Us" and the underrated "Funny Farm," but the quality of films he appeared in were not deserving of his talent (and I consider him a very talnted comedian). But to this film in particular, he plays a investigative journalist doing a story about drug dealers on seedy Venice beaches. While disguised as a beach bum, he's propositioned by Tim Matheson to kill him. Fletch then becomes curious about the story behind this proposition and gets sucked into something of a conspiracy. The mystery is solid, but it's the con-man elements of the Fletch character that make this film so memorable. It's a lot of fun to see Fletch con his way into tennis clubs as a guest of the Underhills, into airplane hangers as plane repair technician and any other number of disguises. My only complaint for the film is that some of the disguises are a bit broad (i.e. funny teeth) and I would have liked to have the disguises be more like those in "Burn Notice" which I think must have been influenced by "Fletch." And the one Lakers dream sequence, while funny, seems like it belongs in a coupletely different film. Written by one of the best comic Hollywood comedic screenwriters, Andrew Bergman, who's written the likes of "The In-Laws," "The Freshman" and even "Blazing Saddles," and directed by Michael Ritchie, who's a director who I can't quite tell if he deserves to be treated as a "serious" filmmaker. He did some smart films early in his career, like "Downhill Racer," "Prime Cut" and "The Candidate," but then spent most of his later career directing comedies. They were good comedies, but I'm not sure they contained any kind of deep subtext, although I will day that "The Bad News Bears" is the greatest sports movie of all time and does have a quite a few subversive elements. So add in a strong supporting cast (including Joe Don Baker, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Richard Libertini, M. Emmet Walsh, George Wendt, Menneth Mars, Geena Davis, James Avery, William Sanderson) and that off with a memorable score from Harold Faltermeyer, arguably his best, this all adds up to a classic.

Christopher E (de) wrote: A true marksmanship of how found-footage films should be written. Katie (Katie Featherson) and Micah (Micah Sloat) are a twentysomething couple who've just moved into a new home in San Diego, CA. Katie has an interest in the paranormal and believes that malevolent spirits have been following her since childhood, though Micah is not so easily convinced. However, after several nights of loud noises and strange happenings, Micah starts to agree with Katie that some sort of ghost may have followed them to the new home. After a paranormal researcher tells the couple he can't help them, Micah decides to take control of the situation and sets up a battery of video cameras so that if a spirit manifests itself, he can capture its behavior on tape. The found-footage genre is one of the easiest genres to enter a film into nowadays, making it one of the most saturated, overused, and dullest markets out there. But it's so successful for a reason, and that success can be traced back years ago to "The Blair Witch Project". However, I believe that this film is the film that really took the reigns of the found-footage genre and made it something real. The marketing for this film was genius. The way they advertised this film and distributed it was so clever that it captured the attention of many and deceived audiences everywhere. No one really knew the truth behind this film and it was one of the scariest films of the year. This film feels so real and so genuine and like I said, this is what found-footage films should be like.This is literally one of the highest profit-margins for a film in the history of ever. This film took a low budget and created a realistic, disturbing flick that captured the hearts of many. The acting in this film and the screenplay were very well done. It feels like we're on this journey with a real couple and that's what makes it scarier. The fact that we can relate to everything makes this film even more scary. We all fear that we may get tormented in our safe place (sleep), and that's exactly what happens here. The movie gets into your mind and sticks there.The film is suspenseful, scary, and smart. I wish the following films in the franchise were just as good, however, I hope that the found-footage genre can find the spark that this film once had in order to brighten the future of horror.

Tom K (it) wrote: Beautiful film. Donald Crisp and Sara Allgood as the patriarch and matriarch of the Morgan clan turn in two of cinema's greatest performances. Walter Pidgeon as the preacher Mr. Gruffydd is inspiring, and a young Maureen O'Hara is beautiful and mesmerizing as always. Roddy McDowall gives one of the better child performances of the period, which is a good thing, because much of the film rests on his little shoulders, and he carries it well. This is without a doubt one of director John Ford's best works. Though "Citizen Kane" will forever remain the greatest and most important film of 1941, I now at least have an understanding of why the producers of this film walked away with the Oscars that night.
