I also like to see all the Barbie films so I can say I've seen them. Sadly, Barbie is not the old Barbie anymore. She is now a new voice, new face and all about plastic junk and superficiality. She is not brave, kind and caring Barbie anymore.

The whole movie is really intense and intriguing, and from the beginning of it, you can feel that there will be some big plot twist that will change everything, and in this movie, the plot twist is actually quite brilliant and doesn't ruin the movie. It makes it even better! The story is nothing special at first, a couple goes on their honeymoon, suddenly there's talk of some murderers and they begin suspecting people and whatnot, but after the 60 minute mark, it gets real good. Like, really really good! The twist is well worth the wait! The characters are interesting and likeable, but by the end of the movie, your opinions might change... The acting is suprisingly good for a movie that is 'sort of a' slasher. All in all, a great twist movie with good characterisation, but a cliche ending. Would recommend!

Gareth S (es) wrote: Easily slotted in amongst Lynch, Von Trier and Haneke, this is provocative cinema at its most eloquent and postmodern. Beautifully shot and hypnotically measured with temporal ease, it comes with a brutal critique that explodes unexpectedly and remains with the viewer for some time.

Su trama es un poco simple y algunos cabos quedan sueltos adems, y la estructura es demasiado reiterativa: encontramos al malo, tiroteo y se escapa,...hasta 3 veces distintas. James Remar como villano est un poco desaprovechado. Adems no tenemos muchas escenas de accin, aunque al menos si son ms realistas y duras que en otras pelculas del gnero.Aun as tiene una fotografa resultona, poblada de grises y azules, y las escenas del climax estn grabadas de forma genial.Sin lugar a dudas todo un clsico que aunque no llega a explotar todos sus elementos sienta las bases de lo que estaba por venir.

Their son falls in love with an aspiring singer who is a knock out blond that needs work and direction. The love affair tears the rest of the family's ambitions apart and may ultimately lead to the demise of the aspiring singer's career as well."A sailor is not a sailor until a sailor has been tattooed."Walter Lang, director of The King and I, The Little Princess, State Fair, Coney Island, Greenwich Village, Star Dust, and Money to Burn, delivers There's No Business Like Show Business. The storyline for this is actually just okay. The conclusion is very good but the music numbers are only moderately entertaining and I found the characters more annoying than intriguing. The cast delivers okay performances and includes Marilyn Monroe, Ethel Merman, Dan Dailey, Donald O'Connor, Rhy Williams, and Mitzi Gaynor. "We can start a fire without rubbing two sticks together."I was coaxed to begin watching Marilyn Monroe movie some years ago and I found this on Netflix and decided to give it a chance; unfortunately, this was not as good as I had hoped. The characters were not as well delivered as they could have been and I found the picture to be a poor man's Singing in the Rain. This isn't a complete waste of time but I wouldn't recommend it either."After you get what you want you don't want it."Grade: C+
