Thank goodness that Rob Lowe came to his senses before the movie ended. God Bless Kleenex. Once was plenty for this FALALALA Lifetime Holiday Movie.
Steven Y (br) wrote: The movie was decent. But Pras lacks acting ability, which really dragged the movie down some. His total, straight face, no emotion performance was needed during a few scenes but the rest of the movie he needed to show some kind of emotions or at least facial expressions which were not there. Ja Rule did a great job in his first role and had some great lines to work with. Worth renting but not buying.

Tim S (au) wrote: Maniac Cop is a surprisingly well-made horror movie about a psychotic ex-cop who goes around killing people on the streets with little to no motive, and it's up to a detective, a cop and a cop framed for the murders to find him and stop him. The movie decides to play detective for the better part of the movie, even though we as the audience know right from the beginning that it's a cop. We just don't know everything about him yet. It's very much in the vein of a giallo, without all of the overbearing style. It sounds like it could spell disaster for the movie itself, but it doesn't. It works fairly well, and they keep the killer's identity a secret for as long as possible, making him that much more menacing and frightening. But the movie isn't about the scares. It's about the horror and the action, and William Lustig does a great job in directing a terrific bunch of actors including exploitation genre veterans Tom Atkins, Bruce Campbell and Richard Roundtree (with a nice cameo by Sam Raimi, as well). I really enjoyed the film and thought it had a terrific pace, and horror fans would very much be doing themselves a disservice by not checking it out.
Blake P (mx) wrote: "It must be nice to always believe you know better, to always think you're the smartest person in the room," broadcast news executive Paul Moore (Peter Hackes) scoffs at neurotic producer Jane Craig (Holly Hunter). "No," she replies, slightly teary. "It's awful." There has never been a time in Jane Craig's life in which she has been, or thinks she has been, completely wrong. She has always been ambitious, has always been hard-working, and has never been afraid to hurt a few feelings in order to get exactly what she wants. In other words, she's a terrific producer. Jane works at the Washington D.C. branch for a network news division, and it's a stressful job to say the least. Often times, she is just getting the materials needed for a segment only minutes before a broadcast. Yet, she is calm under fire, almost a notch more alive when the aura in the room is similar to that of a gunfight. But every morning before work, whether it be at her desk or her lonely apartment, Jane has a good cry. It's a relief to all the pressure she regularly faces, but it's also a quick poor me! meltdown - though the network needs 1,000 Jane's at once at every minute of every day, she finds herself wanted by no men. Her personal life is completely empty, her biological clock ticking brutally slow. That all changes when regional newscaster Tom Grunick (William Hurt) arrives on the scene. When he walks in the room, he grabs your attention immediately: It's as if a celebrity suddenly strolled into your house, except you can't seem to remember his name. Though he has the looks needed to make for a good anchor, he openly admits that he doesn't have enough intelligence to write meaningful stories, let alone understand the things he's reporting. He has never gone to college, isn't very qualified, and got his original job based off of a fluke. He is everything that Jane hates, but she's attracted to him. Jane's best friend, fellow colleague Aaron Altman (Albert Brooks), is devastated: For years, he's harbored a secret crush on her. As Tom becomes increasingly popular and lay-offs begin to consume the station, Jane, Tom, and Aaron are forced to face the truths of their soon-t0-be disastrous love triangle. "Broadcast News" may be a scintillating look into the world of pressure cooker TV, but it's also pointed and often passionate when it comes to turning the tables towards the individuals who make that pressure cooker TV. The scene is quick on its feet. People have hidden agendas. There is simply no time to have a personal life. Or is there? The film is more fascinated with attempting to answer that question than blowing our minds with zippy sequences that show us how the news is made (although those sequences are genuinely thrilling), and I think that's why the zingers are so much more afflicting, why Holly Hunter's tears are so crucial. These people may be The Beatles of the news, but they're only filling up a void. If they got fired from their job, maybe they'd binge eat or consume themselves with collecting pins - because the truth is, without their jobs, they truly have nothing. They love what they do for a living, possibly even more than they love themselves. James L. Brooks' screenplay is superb not just because it's eternally quotable, but because it is so caustically funny while simultaneously creating some seriously believably in-crisis characters. Just in the first few moments of the film, Brooks introduces the three leads as children - Jane is everything you'd imagine Hillary Clinton would be growing up, Tom is the doe-eyed, nearly unbearably nice kid who is a bit simple but entirely charismatic, and Aaron is the one who graduates from high school early and tells off bullies by reminding them that they'll probably only make $19,000 a year. These sequences are charming, yes, but they'll also imperative in the set-up of the characters. They all share the dream to have their likenesses set in stone in the Hall of the Greats, wherever that is, and they've made it there as adults. Yet, they are much more empty and whole-heartedly miserable than they thought they would be (although Tom may be too blissfully unaware to truly notice). You can look at the film simply as a near-romantic comedy with a love triangle at its center, but it's even better when gazed at through the screen of a character study-colored magnifying glass. The actors are top-notch, particularly Hunter, who is just as heartbreaking as she is a spitfire. "Broadcast News" is a great film about television, but it's also a great film about the people who make television.
Bill T (de) wrote: Tibbs is a bit of a fun movie, but not so fun movie that it becomes incredibly entertaining. It can be easily summarized as Sidney Poitier makes a cop exploitation movie, his way. Which can only mean while we get SOME elements of the genre, it's all done TASTEFULLY, there's SOME violence, but not overly gratuitous, some nudity, but it's not exploitational. So you know? It's certainly ENTERTAINING, but not overly great as far as Poitier movies go. Martin Landau is along for the ride, chewing up the scenery as usual. Finally, this movie shows some rather LAX police work happening. Poitier wanders in to a pool hall full of big beefy guys all by himself?Sloppy investigative work, but the biggest thing happens in the end, when Tibbs gets the bad guy, takes him to his car, with no handcuffs, and just LEAVES HIM ON THE SIDEWALK when Tibbs calls into the station, therefore enabling the bad guy to, you know, wander off. Pretty curious movie.
Romina A (ru) wrote: Great movie, watched when I was much younger and it made me want to go and live on a houseboat. I don't know if this is true, but I either read or heard somewhere that the day they filmed the wedding scene was the day Sophia married Carlo Ponti. Poor Cary he was so in love with her. Imagine having to film a scene like that knowing that the person you loved had just married someone else.
