Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) is a high school senior with an especially full plate. Not only must he navigate the usual social and academic pitfalls of high school, but he has to contend with his young twin sisters, serving as de facto parent in the absence of his deceased mother and deadbeat father. The pressure mounts when the bank calls with a foreclosure warning, and Seth's frustrations spill over into various altercations with the school football team. An exasperated coach exiles Seth to work after school with Abel the eccentric groundskeeper (Kevin Sorbo). Their relationship starts off cold and rocky, but as the two spend more time together, they realize they have more in common than either thought. The downside: it's pretty much pain and sadness that they share. The upside: God loves them.

Jack K (it) wrote: This film is extremely creative in concept and animation. The fighting sequences, characters, and settings are intense and beautiful. What kept my attention going was that it wasn't just a typical vampire story; it incorporated elements of sci-fi as well, combining a futuristic world with a 17th century setting in an intelligent way.
Humberto F (gb) wrote: If Hammer Horror had adapted Snow White, it probably would looked allot like this. Weaver gives it her all in the stepmother role offering genuine menace as she shows more and more of her witch-powers as the dark movie unfolds. Little-seen director Michael Cohn (who directed the underrated Interceptor) unleashes horror atmospherics at every turn making this movie truer to the spirit of the original Grimm's fairy tales than any version before. The production design and Czech locales greatly enhance the fairy tale aspect to the production. Standout sequences include the tornado sequence in the forest with massive trees crashing down on everyone and the finale where Claudia is finally destroyed along with the mirror. The movie glosses over some plot developments, including the sudden love between the two leads but the positive points of this movie more than outweigh the minor quibbles. It is a shame that Brian Glover doesn't have more to do other then have a tree fall on him.

David W (br) wrote: Half sequel half rehash. Not as good as the first one, but it was still enjoyable, especially some of the early dialog. Interesting plot theme also, about how Hitler was so bumbling that the Germans would be even more dangerous if Hitler was killed and replaced with someone competent, so in order to help the Allies Hitler had to be, in effect, protected.
Martin T (br) wrote: An African village is torn between Islam and those with traditional beliefs. Sembene weaves a complex and fascinating tale, loaded with symbolism and metaphor. The filmmaking craft is not especially dazzling, but it's done quite capably, and the incongruous score is the only sour note. The simple approach to the material allows the viewer to become fully immersed in the story, and it's a very compelling situation. Memorable and satisfying.
Steve W (de) wrote: In some ways, I feel Christmas in July may be my favourite Preston Sturges picture. Its short, to the point, and wonderfully told. Its about a day dreaming contest participant Jimmy MacDonald, who thinks he can make it big by entering contests. His girlfriend Betty is by his side, regardless of his many losses. When his co-workers play a little prank and send him a telegram saying he`s won, he goes on a huge shopping spree, and even has the President of the contest fooled. What follows is a quaint and enjoyable little comedy with a lot of themes of perception and ambition, and it works quite well.
