(nl) wrote: It's hard to find unique stories anymore. And great storytelling is the foundation of any great film. Laced with humor and unmatched sweetness, "Starbuck" tells the unusual story of a man whose persistent/obsessive donations to a local sperm bank as a young man catches up with him in his later life. The revelation of his donations being attributed to the subsequent births of 533 children, of which 142 are actively seeking him, as well as his current-day girlfriend becoming pregnant, forces him to grow up quickly. His curiosity about the children he has father, he finds is that, in a very "My Name is Earl"-like way, he feels obligated to help them with their myriad of normal-life problems. All the while, he is running from thugs trying to collect on $80,000 he owes. Even typing this, the story sounds insanely unimaginable, and of course it is, but the inherent sweetness of starbuck's well-written character, his relationship with his own family and the realization that he isn't as much of a screwup as he's always thought, makes for one precious film. For fathers, it's a must-see.
(br) wrote: This is a solid little critic proof film. I think the story needed a little more but it was definitely very well directed. Its the kind of movie thats good but will never change your life.
(kr) wrote: funny, but certainly a movie for men
(ag) wrote: Look the film is obnoxious, silly, cheesy, ridiculous but oh so creative. thats what I miss most about these type of films. is how much they put themselves out there despite what the outcome might be. This is definately one of those unnecessary sequels that doesn't hold a candle to the original but its ridiculously funny and very quote worthy. The nun with the killer rosary is reason enough to see this over top but ultimately medicore horror film. Thats filled with memorable gags and appreciated sense of humor.

(mx) wrote: Mahogany is a perfect snapshot of the fashion and decor from 1975. It's a must see for anyone who is a designer - graphic or fashion. The rags-to-riches theme is timeless, as is the theme song song by Diana Ross.
(nl) wrote: Surprisingly good identity thriller with a man who is sort of turned into some kind of metal robot. You can almost see Gould laughing during some of the early scenes but the story, good actors and sold directing wins out over an insane premise in the end. Really slow paced, not for the constant action set.
(ru) wrote: From Rankin-Bass this is a pretty fun stop-motion film. Phyllis Diller and Boris Karloff really save it. At 95 minutes it's too long for the sparse story to sustain itself really well.
(nl) wrote: I found myself struggling to remember who did what, who was who. Anybody dumb enough to follow a guy who proclaims himself a saint deserves to be shot dead, or something, I guess.
(it) wrote: the short film, Entr'acte on here is great too!
(nl) wrote: Didn't like this film. Everyone and his mother knows how this children's film will end, and yet they try to incorporate storylines that somehow have the purpose to convince the viewer otherwise.
(es) wrote: Testament of Youth showcases the powerhouse acting talent that is Alicia Vikander. Its her that gives the movie its edge, as everyone else is simply there. Its based on the war memoir, and its a lush and stunningly well produced period piece film about war, tragedy, and moving on. Its a bit on the stiff side with the other players, but Vikander is amazing and makes the film worth seeing.
