If you can make it through the first half which is a chore you're in store for a fun finish. No Box Trolls were harmed in the making of this movie.

"Resident Evil: Extinction" is mind-numbingly dull and intergalactically stupid. Milla Jovovich's Alice is one of the most bland characters ever put on screen; she is not likable or emotionally engaging, and she never earns the badassery that the filmmakers intended her to be. The action was neither exciting nor scary, it is full of plot holes, and I just found myself incredibly bored. Fuck this movie.

Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby plays two fellas that went out to this "funky joint" to have a good time, not knowing that the place was slated to be robbed, along with the wallet that Sidney Poitier had the winning lottery ticket, he and Cosby try to get with the most dangerous and zany folks to get it back. One of the funniest movies out there. And the first in the triology of movies that Poitier and Cosby made together. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Also, you just cannot bypass Flip Wilson's preaching and the chior's singing. This movie was the first of three movies that Poitier and Cosby worked together on from 1974-1977.

Soon, everybody starts getting bumped off in exceedingly bizarre ways--is it an unseen murderer, or is Stella's hubbie's (The titular Arnold-) vengeful spirit responsible? Lots of dark humor played to the hilt by a cast rich with some serious Hollywood-Hams: Elsa Lanchester, Roddy McDowall, Farley Granger, Shani Wallis, Victor Buono (Hysterical as the besotted priest who officiates at Arnold and Karen's wedding in a cemetery-), Jamie Farr, Bernard Fox (As an ineffective constable-), John McGiver, and Patrick Knowles. Offbeat and very entertaining.

Bradley T (kr) wrote: Apparently, John Huston's "Beat The Devil", a project funded by Humphrey Bogart himself, was something of a debacle. Huston had no love for the first official script, having torn it up on the first day of filming. Luckily, he was able to have a 28 year old Truman Capote flown to Italy to throw something together. This movie speaks to Capote's prolific nature, because considering the daily deadlines he was under there are some great stretches of dialogue. "Look at that," Billy Dannreuther (Humphrey Bogart) explains cheekily to his wife Maria (Gina Lollobrigida), referring to the sweaty Chilean scoundrel O'hara trying to charm his way into their circle, "He drinks, he smokes, he philosophizes. At this rate we'll never get to the point." This film, which was initially conceptualized as a serious commentary about the exploitation of the undeveloped world became a farcical comedy of sorts. I can see why maybe audiences back in 1954 were thrown for a loop, because the tone of the story was more akin to the likes of "Ladykillers" by the Coens; ridiculous, eccentric characters with loose morals all driven by greed, required to work together but loathing each other's company. We have more of a capacity for this type of campy, quip driven humor nowadays, and are more likely to enjoy it than the same audience who watched "On The Waterfront" that same year. The story? Well, there's not much to it. Basically, Bogart plays a amicable caricature of his Maltese Falcon persona who is, like most of the rascals who convene in this film, sniffing around for a way to secure a financial future for he and his wife. He has these "associates"; a handful of minor hooligans who hone in the same mark, namely a very British gentlemen Harry Chelm played by Edward Underdown who has a line on Uranium rich real estate in South America. Edward's wife Gwendolen (Jennifer Jones) is trouble from the get go. She is a tad unstable, has a vivid imagination and makes false declarations seemingly just to toy with anyone who crosses her path. She falls in love with Bogey, Bogey simply humors her crush, meanwhile, Maria falls for Harry Chelm, nobody is particularly loyal to anyone else... meanwhile there is this assorted group of of wannabe criminals scheming to piggyback on Edwards good fortune. This leads to a boat trip from Ravollo to South America which merely serves as a change of environment for these kooky humans to trade lines. If you want to enjoy this movie, don't worry so much about the plot, certainly don't expect anything important to happen. This is a showcase for Capote, the Oscar Wilde of his day, to improvise and exercise his wit. Our generation grew up with Seinfeld, a show made glorious by its ability to make a whole bunch of something out of nothing. I recommend you watch this film with that in mind, and you shouldn't have any difficulty enjoying a rag tag bunch in a rag tag production worthy of its cult status. Bradley J. Timm
