Amsterdam Global Village
"I am far away on a distant journey through my own city", filmmaker Johan van der Keuken says at the end of his four-hour portrait of Amsterdam. The city is presented as a place where people from all corners of the world live, who all exert their cultural influence on the life in the city. With a motor courier as his central figure, the filmmaker introduces the audience to birds of different feathers. We see diverse cultural expressions, like the house scene, the entry of St. Nicholas and a Ghanese mourning ritual. The binding factor in the film is the concept of 'travelling', in other words Amsterdam as a global village. The camera travels through the film in three ways: over land, over water (canals) and through the air.

(gb) wrote: A total fucking crap fest - The action makes a Seagal film look logical and realistic. This is the type of total crap movie they place as an extra in your TV Guide - Best just recycled immediately!
(de) wrote: A brain-dead, mildly entertaining parody of "Zombieland" in which a stripper virus turns almost all the world's women into scantily-clad cannibal corpses with an affinity or hip hop, high heels and poles. Pretty well politically incorrect on every level and often self-consciously so. Drags a bit in spots and some of the jokes don't work, but succeeds often enough to elicit a few chuckles. Visibly low-budget but makes the most of what it's got. Shake it 'til it falls off, baby.Despite the assertions of both Netflix and Flixter, Gilbert Gottfried does NOT appear in this flick.
(it) wrote: A difficult to watch movie made in a documentary style about a returning injured Iraq war veteran who is befriended by the young man film the group therapy sessions at the VA the veteran is attending. The start a friendship and this movie follows the travails and growth of each of them and that friendship.
(gb) wrote: It's composed of several short stories unexpectedly interconnected. One of the best stories on the Patagonian people and sensibility, really moving and with no 'overreacted drama'.
(nl) wrote: "It Takes All Kinds of Critters to Make Farmer Vincent's Fritters!"Quick Movie Review of Motel Hell (1980) I have always loved low budget, grindhouse, and low budget horror films. I find them to be fun, funny, and willing to take a risk. I have had the opportunity to see a lot of 80's horror and 80's horror sleaze. On the other hand, I have never viewed the cult classic Motel Hell, until last night. The story is very interesting; the story follows a family that sells "jerky" and sausages to travelers that come through their small town. What those travelers do not realize is that the yummy treats that they are eating contain human flesh! The way they "harvest" their meat is very cool too .They cause motorists to have accidents on the road, and then capture their prey and bury them in their garden with only their heads sticking out of the ground. This is why I don't eat sausages and jerky. The successful horror comedy is a rare and elusive find. Not only does it need to be both scary and funny, but also it has to blend the two together in almost perfect symmetry. Some of the best films that strike an ideal balance between terror and laughs include Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Evil Dead II, An American Werewolf In London, The Return Of The Living Dead, Re-Animator, The Cabin in the Woods, and Fright Night. Now that I have seen Motel Hell, I can say this movie is now included on this list. For me this films plot is enough to get my attention. The plot seems strange and bizarre! At times, the film is scary, at times cheesy, other times funny, and comes off like a parody of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho. Now this is by no means a perfect movie. For one thing, the setup is slow. Also, the acting is bad, it is very low budget and it takes a while for some things to get going. This movie is certainly a movie most horror fans have heard of. If you are a serious horror head, 80's film fan, or you like cheesy movies, this movie should be somewhere on your radar. Other people, I'm not sure you will enjoy it. I'm kind of stuck on what rating I should give this. I know it is a bad film with cheesy elements. However, it did keep my attention and I found it entertaining. Hmmm...I believe Motel Hell earns a...3 out of 5Horror fans, 80's fans, and fans of old school sleaze I'm sure will enjoy this. However, if you are not one of these individuals, I do not think you will enjoy it as much.

McGruber is not a funny character, he is completely anoying. Other than a few functional jokes that actually works, the movie has nothing to offer as a comedy film. At the begining you think: Ok McGruber is a douche but he actually knows what he is doing and his inventions work. As the film advances you just realize that he is just a douche, and there is nothing more there to see. Badly developed characters and story, makes this movie one you only accepted to watch on tv because there is nothing else to see or do at some point of a random day.
