John T (ru) wrote: David Zucker (director of Airplane!) uses Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol as his framework in this at times amusing satire of American progressives, and more specifically film director Michael Moore. Kevin Farley ably skewers the baseball-capped filmmaker - in the film he's Michael Malone - as a Scrooge like Hollywood leftist in need of political re-education. Kelsey Grammer portrays George S. Patton - as the Ghost of Christmas past - who helps him see the patriotic light. For veritas, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly plays himself moderating a discussing between leftists Farley and Vicki who credibly portrays Rosie O'Donnell. Poking fun of Michael Moore should be an easy task to accomplish, but, in this case, has more misses than hits when it comes to generating laughter whether it's smart or dumb comedy. The film was at its best when lampooning Hollywood elitists, leftist professors and their simple minded students. It's fun to watch Paris Hilton and Bill O'Reilly briefly play an over-the-top version of themselves onscreen. There's also an amusing, lively scene where a bunch of teachers sing and dance to a musical number while dressed like they're from the hippies of the 60s. However, it was too often dragged down by its side story: Islamic terrorists who use a gullible filmmaker as an unwitting tool to detonate a bomb at a concert for U.S. servicemen. Some bright spots do shine through however. There are several genuinely funny, laugh-out-loud moments, one of which involves Bill O'Reilly interviewing Malone and an appropriately annoying Rosie O'Donnell (Rosie O'Connell played pitch perfect by Vicki Browne). Yet another pokes fun at the ACLU in an over-the-top courtroom scene. And last but not least, Trace Adkins, as the Angel of Death, takes Malone on a tour of the future Hollywood, now called Bin Laden City since America lost the war on terror. The film boasts a nice cast that would have been better served if they used their talents elsewhere. Kevin Farley comes across strong in his portrayal of the perpetually unkempt (and unwashed?) Moore. He brings a lot of the attributes his brother Chris possessed that made him so popular with his fans. Kelsey Grammer comes across as pompous and ramrod straight as we might imagine Patton to have been in real life and Jon Voight lends an air of dignity to the show in his portrayal of George Washington. Robert Davi, on the other hand, looks like he'd rather be somewhere else. The very talented, though underappreciated Grier is wasted in an embarrassing slavery sequence. And Leslie Nielsen seemed completely out of place playing a grandfather despite this sort of slapstick material being his forte. The humor in An American Carol is in the broad, slapstick tradition of Airplane!, but doesn't live up to that hysterically funny movie. It's a pedestrian effort at best, the comedic hi-jinks more contrived than funny. An American Carol just tries too hard.

Ken S (es) wrote: The original Harry Palmer trilogy (Caine would return to the role many years later for a couple of TV movies) ends with a much weaker film. It lacks much Palmer's dark wit and for the most part feels rather dull. I could tell from the credits that this was trying to be a bit more Bond than the others. But it just didn't have the strongest story, and Palmer's character isn't as entertaining this go around. And it's a little too goofy as well (thanks to Director Ken Russell I'm sure). I can see why this series initially ended here.
Kyle K (ru) wrote: More than likely an unpopular opinion, and more than likely people will call me insane or media illiterate for this review. I admit to being insane; I tend to like movies that a majority of people don't. But hear me out.Carrie, starring a young Chlo Grace Moretz as the title character, is a remake of the 1976 film of the same name, and they are both based on Stephen King's hit horror novel of the same name (it also spawned a 2002 TV film that never expanded into a series). I admit to the 2013 adaptation to being the only form of 'Carrie' I ever watched or read, and that's probably why I love this movie.I don't know very much about the other adaptations, but I'm sure that if I did/was a major fan of the series(?), I would have similar opinions to the actual fans.I do, however, know that people are disappointed by this movie because there was a lot cut out (there is/was a petition for an extended cut to be released) and by the fact that Carrie looks nothing like she was described in the book. But, let's be honest, who's gonna watch a movie with a hideous main character?The reason I love this movie so much is because I'm completely new to it (and even the horror genre), so I know nothing about it so I have nothing to be salty about for this movie in regards to the original material. And I'm almost sure that many other people who are new to Carrie and horror would feel the same, if not similar.As a horror movie, it has plenty of tropes that you'd expect in one: some sort of curse, teens being bitches, teens having sex. Actually... let me rephrase that: some sort of curse, and teens being teens. Plus a ton of death and blood.As a movie itself - imagine it as it's own stand-alone movie - it's got a character you can feel emotions for, it's got characters you can hate, it's got an antagonist, etc... I'm just blabbering at this point, let me get straight to the main reasons.The movie is dark, brooding and bloody. Carrie's shyness, creepiness and fear are portrayed brilliantly by Moretz and Julianne Moore makes an excellent religious, self-harming, insane mother. And the movie puts a lot of focus on their relationship, but not too much so it's just another family drama. And a lack of jumpscares (or at least it's not reliant on them, let alone major ones) brings a welcome feeling to what most horror movies were in 2013. It's just creepy, and still makes you feel very uncomfortable at many parts - particularly when Margaret White (Carrie's mother) scratches herself or stabs herself in the thigh. I felt many emotions and feelings while watching this movie (excluding my newly found celebrity crush on Moretz) and I'm pretty sure that's what the goal was. As a completely new take on the original film and the source book - or if you're just viewing any 'Carrie' material for the first time - you really don't know what to expect.Of course, though, the highlight of the film is obviously the prom scene. Where the death starts. More than halfway into the film, Tommy dies after being accidentally hit in the head by a bucket after a prank gone wrong after Carrie get's drenched in blood (as a result of the prank) after he and Carrie get nominated prom King and Queen. ("After" is my word of the day now) That's when shit goes wrong, Carrie fully embraces the powers (which I have forgotten to mention throughout this whole review - she has telekinetic powers which she discovers) and goes "fuck you" on all the teens and some teachers (while saving/sparing Miss Desjardin - because she was kind to her - before electrocuting most survivors). It's notably more brutal and exciting than the other prom scene adaptations (I have seen those particular parts on YouTube).Blah, blah, blah. I can't go on too much as I'm limited to so many words, a lot of people will probably disagree with me provided anyone even reads this review of a 4 year old movie.All I do know is that the end (with Sue Snell providing a statement as a voice-over as she places a rose on Carrie's grave) makes me want a sequel so fucking bad... I'm probably gonna cry if they don't make one. Carrie is still alive, fucking do something with the fact!Ugh... anyway. I recommend this movie to any new horror movie goers, anyone new to 'Carrie' (most people would recommend the book and 1976 movie first and I wouldn't blame them).I know that a lot of people wouldn't agree with me, but a 48% score on Rotten Tomatoes (44% Audience score) does tell me that there are some people that can appreciate this movie.To conclude: This has definitely reached the list of one of my favourite movies (despite the fact that I'm not a complete horror movie fan - mainly because of jumpscares and their reliance of them). I'm NOT gonna watch the 1976 version (might watch the 2002 version) and might read the book... but the only reason I'm reluctant is because I love this movie so much that if I do, I'll change my opinion of it.Nevertheless, give it a shot. It might be worth it.
