If you're into movies about serial killers and profilers, this a very good one, especially for a straight to cable movie. Shoot to Kill - A fish out of water cop thriller with Sidney Poitier, Tom Berenger, and Kirstie Alley. A robber stole some jewelry from a bank and killed one of the hostages. He escaped to the woods, killed some hikers, and took the guide (Kirstie Alley) as a hostage. He needs the guide to get him through the dangerous and moutainous terrain and into Cannada. Tom Berenger plays Kirstie Alley's boy friend, who's very familiar with that wooded and mountainous area. Sidney Poitier plays the cop who enlists his help to track down the killer and who must rely on his expertise in the woods. There's a very homoerotic scene during a snowstorm when the two had to dig a hole into the snow and had to cuddle together naked to keep each other warm. They became a lot closer after that scene. There are also some pretty good Cliffhanger-like action sequences in the woods. When Sidney Poitier and Tom Berenger's characters got out of the woods and into Canada, the fish of water roles are reversed. Now Tom Berenger's character must rely on the cop's skills to rescue his girlfriend. Overall, not bad, especially since you get two fish out of water stories in one. Roger Spottiswoode also directed Tomorrow Never Dies, and you get see early that he's a pretty good with action scenes. My Wife is a Gangster - a very funny Korean comedy about a tough female mobster who tries to fulfill the dying wish of her sister to get married. In a way, it's kind of the opposite of Miracles (Jackie Chan) except it's the other way around - the mobster must pretend to be a normal, law abiding citizen to marry a normal guy. -------------------------------- The Shouting Match Anyway, on to the shouting match. Our apartment complex recently got new ownership. They want to make the place a bit more respectable so they're doing a bunch of improvements and renovations. Most of these include entering our place and doing work inside which normally requires us to move stuff away from the walls and/or closets. And they have a tendency to give us less than a day (24 hours) of warning. And this day was one of those days. I left for work at around 10:30am - no written notice taped to our door. Binh icq's me at work from our apartment at 11:30pm, telling me we have to get stuff cleared out from various walls, the kitchen, and my closet. First, there's a lot of pent up anger from by all the noise caused by the workers in the morning. But today I'm really just annoyed that we again have to re-arrange stuff in our apartments and without much warning time. Cuz it was kinda late, I taped a note on our door telling them not to enter our place until 10:00am. They came at 10:00am, but since the restroom was being used, I told them to come back in half an hour. The contractor got really angry and said they'll just skip us and do it some other day. He walked off and told his guys to leave. Now, I'm the angry one. I didn't want to move all that stuff again. I stormed out of our apartment with the notice, screamed at the workers, then the contractor, and then his supervisor, pointing at the text in the notice that says they're supposed to give us at least a full day of warning before they can enter our apartments. The supervisor called and screamed at the apartment managers for not giving us the notice in time. They then agreed to do their work, and I apologize for screaming at them. After all these inconveniences, I know the owners will probably end up raising the rent for the "improvements". That's when it's probably time for me to move. I'm not gonna pay more for being inconvenienced on a daily basis.

(gb) wrote: Set in the Netherlands near the end of the World War II, the film is an extended flashback in which Jeroen Boman (Jeroen Krabbe), a middle-aged choreographer at work on a piece about the Allied liberation, recalls his adolescent relationship with a Canadian soldier more than 40 years ago.More than a love story, the film, which opens today at the Quad Cinema, offers a rose-colored portrait of a more austere and innocent era when the love that dare not speak its name remained mute. Most of the story is remembered through the eyes of the young Jeroen (Maarten Smit), an introspective blond youth of 13 who, because of food shortages, is sent by his mother from Amsterdam to live in the country. Jeroen's foster parents are a stern but kindly fisherman and his wife, who have three children of their own and lead a spare, hardy existence that seems scarcely touched by the war.Life in the country for Jeroen is exhilarating but lonely. Sitting at the seaside, he and his best friend and fellow exile, Jan (Derk-Jan Kroon), fantasize about rowing their way home to Amsterdam. Because Jeroen's foster parents are deeply religious, the boy spends more time than he would like in church and in Sunday school.At the same time, Jeroen also begins to feel the first twinges of puberty. But his feelings, unlike those of his playmates, are homoerotic. Attracted to Jan, who is rapidly becoming girl crazy, Jeroen longs for a deeper, more soulful friendship. And when liberating Allied soldiers arrive, he catches the eye of Walt Cook (Andrew Kelley), a handsome Canadian soldier who recognizes a kindred spirit and becomes a mentor and older brother figure. Although the language barrier precludes much verbal communication between them, Jeroen and Walt form a brief but intense attachment that ends abruptly with the troops' departure.Except for an inexplicable streak of bitterness, Walt seems almost as innocent as Jeroen. He lavishes him with candy, teaches him to jitterbug and to drive a jeep and tells him he's special. In the film's one love scene, an affectionate game of roughhouse turns stumblingly amorous, with Walt calling the boy his little prince.

(us) wrote: Hilarious horror comedy that makes the perfect end to the "Evil Dead" trilogy in all its forms. Bruce Campbell is at his absolute best as Ash, playing his arrogance & stupidity to brilliant effect while pulling off also playing 'Evil Ash' and even a bunch of miniature ones. Like in "Evil Dead II", the best parts are always Ash by himself, and here he takes it to the next level, so much so that the rest of the cast is overshadowed (even future Oscar nominees Embeth Davidtz). Behind the camera, Raimi crafts a hilarious fantasy that pokes fun at the genre & films that came before. The gags are fast & ingenious (seeing Ash fighting a bunch of tiny versions of himself is one of the best moments of the series) while the special effects team bring the world to life (the skeleton army is brilliantly cheesy). While not a perfect combination of horror & comedy that "Evil Dead II" is, this is a plain fun movie from beginning to end, and for the record, I prefer the happier ending.

Everything about this is wonderful, from the essentially Pixar concept to the warm, sentimental relationships at its core. Even the animation has held up quite well, which isn't always the case with these early CG efforts: humans still look a bit wonky, but most of the cast seems drawn straight from the pages of a Caldecott winner and that kind of bright, absurd character works beautifully. John Goodman and Billy Crystal carry most of the heavy-lifting as Mike and Sulley, blue collar creatures with an easy, free-flowing rapport, but three-year-old Mary Gibbs threatens to steal the scene every time she gets the chance with her adorable almost-words and penetrating good cheer. Exceedingly well-balanced, with the kind of imagination that keeps mouths gaping and so much heart, even the boogeyman might have to fight back a tear or two. One of my favorites of the entire Pixar catalog, it swings hard and connects on every level. Sweet, sad, silly and stupendous, a timeless classic that I was glad to share with my kids.
