Amos R (kr) wrote: A successful confrontation about the hollow futility of apathetic irony. Tim Heideker(sp?) nails this role. The lead character is unbearable. The whole movie is tedious. It isn't enjoyable, but that empty feeling, that disapproval, that's it working.

Eric L (nl) wrote: This movie caused us to rethink shopping at Wal-Mart, although it could have been made a little better (without such obvious bias at the beginning.) There are some interesting books out there that follow up with the details. I have not read them. I've never been that interested in Wal-Mart anyway. I got this weird dead-inside feeling when I went there.

Aaron B (au) wrote: Mike Figgis is one of the worst directors of all time. He never fails to disappoint me with his movies. This expierement has us watching four different stories at once, with dialogue happening in one box at a time. Basically, at any given time in 3 of the boxes all you see is the stuff that gets cut out of a normal movie. so instead of Selma Hayek saying on the phone, " I will meet you at the resteraunt," then the movie cuts to the resteraunt, we see her get into the car and the actual trip while more exciting things happen in another box. Or at least we would if anything exciting ever happened in the movie. Or even anything interesting. Maybe this experiment would be better served by something actually happening.

Philip P (ag) wrote: This movie offered nothing that deviated from the standard script of movies of this genre. It's message had no surprises. There was nothing surprising about any of the characters. It was entirely formula-driven and completely the kind of drivel one would expect from this post-modernist collection of actors and director. Do yourself a favor and re-watch "To Kill a Mockingbird" instead.

Bryon M (kr) wrote: Decent ending to the four part Blind Dead movies. Atmosphere is still heavy but overall not as good as the first two.

Je M (fr) wrote: Utterly gorgeous outing showing Rollin at his poetic and nightmarish best. Intended less as a cohesive narrative and more as a visual meditation on the entwined nature of death and love.

Jonathan G (nl) wrote: Inspirational from both teacher and student standpoint. Great young cast. Robin Williams zings.

Davidq H (ru) wrote: This movie was playing in theaters at the same time as Groundhog Day, both featuring Bill Murray. I saw them back to back on the same afternoon in 1993 at a multiplex theater in Tenleytown, Washington, DC.I remember being very disappointed with this film. Part of that, though, was that we saw Groundhog Day first, and it would have been very difficult not to be let down by anything after that.I recently saw Groundhog Day again, which made me think once more about this film. I wondered if it might be worth giving it a second chance. My local library had a copy of it, so I checked it out and watched it last night. It's a reasonably decent film, I've decided, and I enjoyed watching it. But it's definitely not a must-see.
