(mx) wrote: Beyond The sea, is Marvellous Good fun, full of Great Talents and worth every praise!"Most Bio-pics are either 1 of 2 things: inaccurate or boring. Beyond the Sea is neither of those 2 things, Kevin Spacey channels Bobby Darrin and clears the air about his secret life. From the rise and fall of his fame and the Shakey marriage to Sandra Dee, Darrin has proven beyond the grave he's still entertaining. This is by far up there next to American Beauty and K-PAX.

(es) wrote: A block of 80's schlock with jump scares (which bombard the viewers with Dennis Michael Tenney's blaring synthesizer score) and sance-summoning atmosphere aplenty, Night of the Demons is a spooky, enjoyably kitschy B-movie ripe for rediscovery. The ghostly opening- credits animation of Hull House is an old-fashioned, matte-painting throwback to 'Fantasia's Night on Bald Mountain. The acting range within the film scuttles from wooden to unintentionally hammy (the choice of a Frank Welker mimic for the lip-synched demon is consequently riotous since visions of Megatron and Doctor Claw materialize). The soon-to-be-osmotically-possessed-via-kiss teenagers (who could be 30-year-olds) begin as sexist, repulsive hedonists guzzling Coors and coveting intercourse but a trio of them eventually evolves into amiable characters worthy of rescue. Sal Romero (William Gallo) is the Fonz of the picture who is the sex-starved Italian until he chivalrously sacrifices himself for Judy Cassidy (Cathy Podewell who monotones her lines like Farrah Fawcett with a frontal-lobe lobotomy), the virtuous heroine. In a novel contortion on conventions, Roger (Alvin Alexis), the token African-American isn't the first victim. The sensual highlight is Angela Franklin's (Amelia Kinkade) otherworldly, callisthenic dance choreography in a black veil with a strobe light in the background. Her lithe movements are simultaneously erotic and unsettling. The countdown to a body count is a long fuse but it compensates in dividends of bodice-ripper nudity (the coquettish, tutu-wearing Linnea Quigley usually disrobes on a whim) and flesh-tearing mutilation.
(it) wrote: Excellent film from the great Francois truffaut with two of France's biggest stars, Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve. It is a story of a small theatre during the Nazi occupation in France. Check it out.
(es) wrote: The Bride Wore Black is a flawed, but very well made thriller by French auteur Franois Truffaut. It's Truffaut's homage to his idol Alfred Hitchcock, whom he had famously interviewed prior to this, which is probably the reason he decided to make a film based on material by an author who Hitchcock had previously adapted (Rear Window by Cornell Woolrich). He also collaborated with another person that famously worked with Hitchcock, film composer Bernard Herrmann. The story is about a woman named Julie Kohler (Jeanne Moreau) who seeks to track down the five men who killed her husband on their wedding day. She seeks revenge by seeking one of them out and methodically killing them with different methods. It wasn't critically favored and Truffaut eventually felt the same way about it agreeing with the critics, yet it has continually gained more recognition for being a decent experimental homage to the Master Of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock. It's a good movie that's worth watching if you're in the mood for a subtle thriller made by one of cinema's master filmmakers. 8/10It's also interesting to see because, although he denies that he's ever watched the film, Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films have a striking similarity to Truffaut's film as both are about a bride who seeks to avenge the murder of her newly-wedded husband by seeking out each of the killers in methodical ways.
