(de) wrote: The best parts of this film are in the trailer. Oh, and the fact that they got Eric freakin' Roberts to show up. He's clearly only taken the role as a cheap holiday, and I can't blame him for it. Great location, awful film. I wanted a bit more Sharktopus in it, to be honest. Watch the trailer and leave it at that.

(it) wrote: After Porn ends is a good documentary about what the actors in that business go through when they retire. The documentary is pretty interesting, but could have been much better considering the subject. With this film, the filmmakers talk to former porn stars that have been in the business and are now retired due to personal decisions. This one touches on the subject, but I felt it didn't go in that area deep enough to really make this a compelling viewing. Yes, it is sad, and all, but I felt that something was missing. This is entertaining, but compared to other films in the genre, it just lacks in more areas than none. If you want something good to watch, this is good enough, but it doesn't necessitate multiple viewings. The film features interviews with some of the industry's biggest talents, and how they live their lives after their porn career. I feel that it could have deeper into the consequences and that is where the film failed. Sure, the actors talk about it, but we don't tend to see it. I feel that this one could have longer and really go into detail on each subject this documentary exposes. I think the filmmakers could have given a bit more substance to the material and it would have been a much better documentary. However this is average at best, and doesn't go in depth with its intriguing subject, which is a shame because, this would have been a memorable documentary to watch. By the time the credits roll, it leaves you wanting more.

(es) wrote: Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes is a decent film. It is about a shipping disaster in the 19th Century has stranded a man and woman in the wilds of Africa. Christopher Lambert and Andie MacDowell give give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Hugh Hudson did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the adventure and drama.

(ca) wrote: I remember liking this movie when I saw it as a grade school kid growing up. It remains a classic, and to me, is more satisfying with each viewing. Perhaps it's because this may just be the most realistic movie about kids, friendship, and growing up I've ever seen. It's refreshing to know that they can make movies about young kids without portraying them as sex maniacs, criminals, or drug users.My Bodyguard is about a high school student, oddly named Clifford Peache (Chris Makepeace), who is encountering trouble at school. After unwisely insulting a school bully nicknamed "Moody," (played wonderfully by Matt Dillon) he becomes a target. They want him to give them their lunch money, for protection. From who? "From themselves, of course, but that's not what they say.." no, indeed. They tell him they're trying to protect him from a big, tough kid named Ricky Linderman (played by Adam Baldwin in his film debut).Clifford is somewhat small, he doesn't know how to fight, and he's not very intimidating, thus, he can't really defend himself. So, what he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in intelligence and cleverness. He decides that he wants to pay Ricky Linderman "to be my bodyguard." This is where the movie really begins, and makes an excellent turn.Linderman is somewhat of an outcast and a loner at school, presumably because of his size, and some unkind rumors milling about the school. He has a reputation for being a psychopathic menace, but as it turns out, he's just a normal kid who experienced a tragic event. Clifford decides to get back at Moody with Linderman watching his back. Linderman is at first a little hesitant to accept Clifford's attempt at creating their friendship. Then, one day after Clifford is caught following his "bodyguard" home, their wonderful, unlikely friendship begins. The bonding sequence between these two unlikely companions is really satisfying to watch.Not only does Linderman help Cliff, Cliff helps Linderman. Linderman begins to open up, alleviate his shyness, and relate better to people. He begins to understand that there are friends out there, and we all need support. This character transition that Baldwin makes is extremely well-acted and very convincing. Clifford, we later learn, isn't the only one with tricks up his sleeve. Some scenes later in the movie, like Linderman getting pushed around by another tough kid, are a little difficult and painful to watch. The scenes about Cliff's grandmother (played by the wonderfully funny Ruth Gordon) and Martin Mull as his father trying to keep her under control in the bar of the hotel he manages, don't really go with the other scenes, and are almost like a film-within-a-film. That's easily forgiven and forgotten, though, because of the brilliance of the other parts, especially a great fight scene where everything comes together at the end. I haven't seen too many movies where I've liked the ending as much as this one.The most gratifying thing about this movie, is perhaps the lessons that can be learned. I loved the scene where Clifford discusses the rumors about Linderman with one of the teachers, who more or less implies that we should judge people and form our own opinions instead of listening to rumors and gossip. Clifford is wise enough not to listen to the rumors. It's nice to know that people can be friends, despite differences in their backgrounds, economic status, or social circles. It reminded me of a line from On Golden Pond spoken by Katherine Hepburn: "Sometimes you have to look hard at a person, and realize they're doing the best they can." My Bodyguard does exactly that.This is a very suitable film as well as great learning material for any teenager, teacher, or parent. The film is perfectly cast and the performances by the teenagers as well as the adults are fantastic. I liked the performance of Adam Baldwin the best, he starts out looking a little sloppy, scruffy, and primitive, but later goes through a transformation to a well-mannered, polite, affable, approachable young man. He is very convincing playing a kid who is tough, scared, sad, and angry at the same time. To make a treasure and a classic movie like this about teenagers and high school was some kind of miracle, and wonderful.

(kr) wrote: A scene-stealing Steve McQueen and solid war action from director John Sturges are some of the highlights of this Sinatra actioner that is undone by the romance subplot. The look of the film is an impressive mix of exotic and eye-catching locales and wonderful sets, including some great jungle ones. The Lollabrigda scenes with Sinatra have no spark at all and just serve to slow the movie down.

(es) wrote: very enjoyable romantic comedy. richard gere, jennifer lopez, susan sarandon and stanley tucci are all remarkable. the film is a nice way to spend an hour and a half or so, and the dancing is beautifully choreographed. some intreguing camera angles and shots make it all the more interesting aswell.
