The summer of '58, the year Sweden almost won the world championship in soccer over Brazil, Yngve Johansson accepts two children to live with him during the summer, as told through the eyes of a young boy. His name is Mårten, and the other child's name is Annika. She is a rough girl, with many problems. The three of them do not get along, and Yngve is a true dictator to the children's eyes. However, when the children discover that their new guardian has a crush on their teacher (Cecilia Nilsson), they do what they can to bring the two together. Soon enough, the three will discover that they have a lot more in common than they previously imagined, and together they can make their lives worth living again. This is a sweet story about life in Sweden in the mid 1900's. It is about family, love, hate, innocent friendship that we all can relate to, and much, much more...

While I personally find such criticisms laughable (pick up a comic book guys, it ain't the kid's stuff you think it is) at least there are movies like this for such critics. And hey, I actually like it a lot myself too. JLA Adventures isn't anything terribly deep, but god damn is it fun. It has a tone reminiscient of the Super Friends cartoon, but of a higher quality. It's goofy, fast paced, and light-hearted. My one major criticism is that it's way too short, but the ending that feels reminiscient of the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes does hint at a sequel that I'll definitely want to see.

Christopher H (jp) wrote: For a second-rate creature feature, "Attack of the Crab Monsters" manages to be a decently entertaining watch if viewed on a lazy afternoon. The film was directed by Roger Corman, who directed 55 movies in his career along with producing around 400, most of the film's he worked on were very low-budget B-movies such as this one. Originally released as a double bill with another Corman sci-fi feature "Not of this Earth", the film has very bare-bones production value but juggles enough interesting ideas (such as the crabs absorbing the knowledge of it's victims) to make it respectably entertaining on it's own right. The acting is pretty standard for the character archetypes each one of the them is assigned to and the screenplay contains some really silly science but the film moves at such an efficient pace that it never fails to keep the viewers attention. The effects for the giant crabs are very cheap-looking and cheesy, which is probably why the movie sticks to mostly showing their arms or showing the whole crab in quick-edit shots. Overall, it is a decently entertaining 50's creature feature, but not the best.
