(mx) wrote: A lively and unusual WWII period piece in that it showcases the "escape" from the reality of the war, so to speak, rather than following the typical tales of sweeping romance and serious drama. Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins, apart from being great actors in their own right, have excellent chemistry, which makes the movie that much better - and funnier.
(kr) wrote: I didn't know what I was getting into, and I'm not sure what I got out. I can't tell if it was supposed to be as bad as it was or not. Probably, but considering Chris Rock's other movies at the time, I really have no idea. It was dumb, and I'm not sure if it was in a good way. Reminded me a lot of Kung Pow!

(au) wrote: It's a buddy movie with a nostalgic twist thrown in much like The Sting only ... Burt Reynolds. He's in one movie (like maybe The Naked Gun, as Lt. Frank Dreblin), and everyone else is in another. By the end of the effort one begins to have grown a tolerance for his look-at-me antics, but it takes a long time to get there. In the other movie, the one w/o him, everyone does just fine, particularly Jane Alexander.

(ca) wrote: One of the first noir films, and Peter Lorre is brilliantly creepy as usual. Still, since he's only in the film for a few minutes, it's pretty slow goings for the most part.
(br) wrote: Wow... this may be the most sleazy of the 80's Horror Sleaze. I don't think I have seen acting as bad as this, even in the most craptastic art house film. Gunner Hansen, the original Leatherface is in this and I can see why he had no lines in it... he is truly a bad "actor". Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead) and Michelle Bauer are here as well and they keep their clothes on for oh, 30 seconds. Overall, total crap, but as an example of 80's Horror Sleaze, Top Notch.

Winner of four Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director for Barry Levinson and Best Actor for Dustin Hoffman and Best Original Screenplay! Quite enjoyed this film a lot during it's time, but Tom Cruise has been doing these yuppie clean cut roles a little too much such as Jerry McGuire and the disasterous Cocktail!3 out of 4
(kr) wrote: With Atom Egoyan, you can almost always expect a challenging film accompanied by realistic characters and dialogue, some heavy and complex themes, and no easy answers or payoff. "Adoration" is no exception. This is a multifaceted character study with a (slightly convoluted) web of a plot that goes in unpredictable directions along with it's unpredictable characters. It is definitely a good film, but it's intentionally abstract narrative was frustrating at times and it lacked the memorable characters, conversations, and overall cohesion of some of Egoyan's other (superior) films. Still, a good film that built itself up to a strong finish.
