Phil H (nl) wrote: Back in the days when you didn't get too many sequels (imagine that) we actually got this surprising follow up. Most of the original cast are now long gone as we focus on Fisher Stevens Indian character as he tries to eek out an existence in the big city (NY) selling toys of Number 5. Before you can say Number 5 is al...Number 5 returns for his next adventure, out of the sticks and into the Big Apple.It would be very easy to assume this sequel would be a lazy cash grab, after all the big stars are gone and they have promoted the sidekick character of the first movie to lead role status. Well yes and no, yes this obviously came to ride the coattails of the original which means basically the same hijinks as before but set in a city environment. On the other hand they do expand on what came before and evolve Number 5's character pretty well, he now wears a red scarf you know. Now christened Johnny 5 (typical cool sounding 80's nickname), his metallic body has been modded and adorned with cool stickers and whatnot, he has more knowledge, he's a little more street smart and a little more human smart. This time the plot revolves around Johnny 5 helping Fisher Stevens character build a small army of Johnny 5 toys to sell to this big company. They are doing this inside a warehouse which also just happens to be in use by some crooks trying to tunnel their way into the nearby bank. Of course one main angle of the story is once again seeing Johnny 5 interact with folk in the city, he's not suppose to get out of the warehouse for his own safety but naturally does and goes on an input rampage. Now even though I'm very sure many of you can guess the type of antics Johnny 5 gets up to, its still actually very amusing and entertaining. 5 goes up against stereotypical 80's street hustlers and beats them at their own game, he reads a gazillion books in the local book store, goes for a bit of hang gliding, goes to church, gets arrested, wears some human attire and helps out some stereotypical 80's street trash in pinching car stereos. A nice slice of easy going predictable hokem much in the same realm as Mick Dundee's adventures in Nu Yawk.The whole sequence where 5 gets manipulated by the street gang sums up the whole theme of the plot really. Its all about poor little Number 5 getting taken for a ride, he's out of his depth and his innocent good nature is exploited by various slime-balls. The entire main plot is actually a twist on this notion as you discover towards the end, didn't see it coming gotta admit. This is where this sequel does improve on the original in my opinion, it takes 5 out of the relatively safe countryside and plops him in the concrete jungle, a deceptively dangerous environment for any outsider/foreigner. 5 isn't the young child he used to be but more of a brash teen, over confident, eager, hopeful and alas still very gullible, the city setting really brings out those emotions with great effect.The most heart crushing moment of course being the sequence where Johnny 5 is beaten half to death by the bank robbers. Now this one scene is still easily one of the most heart wrenching moments in cinematic history, even E.T. has a tough time beating this. After 5 realises he has been tricked by a very close friend (throughout the whole film) he makes a run for it. The henchmen go after him, eventually catch him and attack 5 with iron crowbars smashing him to pieces before your eyes! Battery fluid sprays like blood, they rip his arm off, his caterpillar tracks are destroyed, metal debris goes flying and in the most shocking moment for any child...they batter 5's head destroying one eye completely. I think the agonising sound of Tim Blaney's (5's voice) cries for help in this sequence really make for an emotionally scarring scene. Johnny 5 pleads for them to stop as he is slowly destroyed, begging them not to disassemble him. What you see will ruin your day even now, hell it almost ruins the movie its so distressing! as a child it ended you're world.Towards the finale things start to get a bit silly admittedly as the main bad guy goes on the run. Johnny 5 manages to repair himself with a little help but he's pissed and out for revenge, so to get that point across he tacks a load of extra metal junk onto himself giving a heavy metal punk orientated appearance complete with eye patch and DIY mohawk. We then get a sequence where 5 captures the henchmen who wrecked him and proceeds to give them a good beat down, well a goofy childish cartoonish beat down. We then get this quite farcical chase sequence between Johnny 5 and the main villain in a speed boat...oh yes. 5 manages to eventually catch up to the very fast speed boat (beats me) and captures the main villain in an impossibly hilarious way. All this accompanied to the tune of 'I Need a Hero' by Bonnie Tyler I might add.To top it all 5 even gets the C3PO treatment (errr copy much?) right at the end when he appears to have been fixed up in gold plated metal from top to bottom. This makes him look like a large trophy or a large piece of bling which would require sunglasses to look at, oh and he becomes an official US citizen too...hey who am I to judge huh. Its all so chucklesome because Johnny 5 literately moves at a snails pace and speedy agility is not on the cards. In reality the bad guy would of gotten away by a good country mile and 5 would be trundling along like an OAP in a mobility scooter. But we overlook all that, all the obvious flaws, plot holes, impossibilities, unbelievable coincidences etc...after all this is still a movie for kids just like the first film. I do think this sequel is actually better than the first mainly because it offers more thrills and spills, more laughs and a much greater scope with clearly better production values. Sure its more preposterous and hokey with extra layers of good-natured schmaltz for good measure, despite missing Sheedy and Guttenberg, but you simply can't fail to love little Johnny 5 and his zest for life.

(it) wrote: A few subjective notes on Love and Anarchy:When I was a kid, I lived about a mile from the only movie theater on the West Side of Cleveland that you could remotely call an "art house." It was the only theater on the West Side that showed foreign movies and arty independents. I saw Being There and Chariots of Fire and Monty Python and the Holy Grail - not exactly the most arcane art movies in the world, but as close as I could get until I was old enough to drive to the East Side, where the real art houses and rep cinemas were.In the '70s, this theater hosted long runs of Swept Away and Seven Beauties. I was 13, not at all ready for movies like that, and so I never experienced Lina Wertmuller in the full flower of her greatest acclaim.I'm ready now. And so I finally saw Love and Anarchy on TCM.My father was born in Sicily, but was very Americanized by the time I was born. He had none of the characteristic explosions of emotion that typify - or stereotypify - Italian behavior. Indeed, he was pretty quiet and dyed-in-the-wool - it's my non-Italian mother that had the temper.Anyway, I've watched Italian movies with combinations of affection and repulsion for "my people". The histrionic emotions, the grotesque and cartoonish visages, the crass scatological humor in Fellini's more extreme movies make me wince, but then movies like The Night of the Shooting Stars or The Tree of Wooden Clogs warm me to another side of the Italian Spirit.Love and Anarchy is set in a Mussolini-era brothel. So you know which side of Italy you're going to get here.Wertmuller takes an innocent farmboy sent to Rome in a plot to assassinate Mussolini, and she drops him into a brothel that's like a Fellini nightmare. God help the innocent boy for whom this is his first exposure to sex. We watch it through the innocent, petrified eyes of Tunin, played by Giancarlo Giannini, and it's not hard to see why he was Wertmuller's muse. He is compassionate, vulnerable, frightened, wholesome, speaking very little, taking everything in, trying to survive the constant assaults to his senses, under the pallor of his almost certain doom.He and one of the younger prostitutes, far less ravaged by the years than the others, fall immediately in love. This is a beautiful and necessary complication to the plot, but it does lead me to the hackneyed trope of the Whore with a Heart of Gold. Plenty has been written about this clich, and I agree that it is almost entirely the product of the wish-fulfillment of frustrated male screenwriters and the producers who green-light their projects. The woman who is an expert orgasm-inducer, but still has one tiny corner of her tin-plated soul into which our valiant hero can find True Love, and who looks like Julia Roberts too. It would actually be refreshing to see a movie where the prostitute is a treacherous money-thieving bitch. Anyway, if you buy into the WwaHoG clich, it's a highly moving subplot. Tunin negotiates a two-day vacation for her, and she enjoys a few fleeting moments where she can just be a girl, respectable and deserving of love, where she can be her best self. When they run into one of her old customers, she is heartbreakingly brought back down to earth. But Tunin takes her away and valiantly reconstructs the illusion of respectability for her, through the simple act of treating her with respect. As much as I hate the WWwaHoG, this part of the story was beautifully executed.I don't have much else to say that you won't find elsewhere. See the movie, if you get a chance. Long live Italy.

In fact the only reason I saw it at all was because of a recommendation I got online when I posed the question "Where there any good movies in 2011"?I didn't love Grave Encounters. But I am, to my surprise, super glad that I watched it. If more Found Footage Horror films were like this one, maybe I wouldn't detest the genre. Seriously, although I had a number of problems with the movie, I'd still put this one up closer to The Last Exorcism and The Blair Witch Project than I would to the usual dreck the genre offers.
