(br) wrote: Handsomely made and old-fashioned in pace and texture - a lot of the success hangs on the three leads' wonderful performances and chemistry rather than the story (based on a Patricia Highsmith novel) which is only occasionally interesting.
(us) wrote: Even if you don't know the characters that well, the action scenes are fun to watch. I highly suggest this especially over the Live action ones which are average at best.
(mx) wrote: I always wondered what the big deal was about this film. All the big star names that took pay cuts just to work with Bob Dylan? Well the truth is, you have to be a Bob Dylan fan to like this movie, obviously I'm not, I can tolerate a few of his songs, but what was the point of making a film out of it. Production seems very proud by the fact that it only took 20 days to make this film, the truth is that it feels like it was made over a weekend at the Masonic Temple of Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. I think Dylan's last quote at the end of the movie summarizes this film "I stopped trying to figure everything out a long time ago." The irony of this film is, that there is nothing about this film to figure out. It took a lot of self discipline from me to keep from turning it off, because I'm the eternal optimist and I think the best part is coming just around the corner. Well the corner came and went and I feel cheated for the almost 2 hours I wasted.

(es) wrote: I thought this movie was good and Meg Ryan ans Kevin Kline were great together, It was a great film but not sure if I want it on DVD, It starred Jean Reno, it was directed by Lawrence Kasdan
(mx) wrote: i've been thinking about getting into tsai and i've decided to tackle them in order as his feature films revolve around one character who is introduced here. the film seems loosely inspired by nicholas ray's seminal 'rebel without a cause,' even featuring a james dean poster at the video arcade where the young protagonists spend much of their time (temple of the neon god). our 'hero' hsiao kang mostly presents as the sal mineo character. you'll see what i mean. funny how disaffected youth the world over recognize each other
(au) wrote: Just Before Dawn is one of the most boring slasher movies that I think I've ever seen. Now I'm not one to cry out for constant gore or killing, but this movie needed something to keep things interesting. The acting is pretty awful, as are the actors themselves. I absolutely hated Deborah Benson in this thing, and I wanted somebody to punch her in the face. She had about as much facial expression as a blank wall. Everyone else just seems to be along for the slasher ride. It doesn't help that the characters are boring and uninteresting, and there's hardly any suspense at all. They try to build it up, but fail at it. This movie comes off like a mix of everything that was popular at the time: The Hills Have Eyes, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween and Friday the 13th. The latter may not be much of an influence on the film being that they were released the same year, but you can't deny the similarities. I'd say just skip the movie altogether. Outside of a couple of unique death sequences, it lacks nearly anything that makes a slasher enjoyable.
(us) wrote: original fantasy film and typical Gilliam brand. He was in the peak of his filmmaking in the 80s and 90s and this another great film. Full of great cameos and interesting oddball characters, you can't dislike such a passion filled film. Sean Connery is very good in a limited role. I couldn't believe this film has gone past my collection for so long.
(ag) wrote: Mame never achieves the heights it should, but it's not nearly as terrible as some other reviews would have you believe. It does stumble while telling its story primarily because of the time jumps the audience has to figure out through small (and not so small) visual queues. There's also the matter of key points of the story being left out, such as Patrick and Mame reconciling in the third act. Lucille Ball feels like she's channeling Gloria Swanson from Sunset Boulevard, she fails to make the character her own; instead, Mame is a pastiche of this and that with no true "self." I'm not as much a stickler for singing voices as some, though it is painfully obvious when certain actors are being dubbed. The production, for all its lavishness, falls flat without a lick of energy in it. Plots are introduced and casually dismissed. The Depression, for instance, which wipes out Mame's fortune, is mentioned almost in passing. Does she cry or despair over it? Nope. She keeps on singing. What makes this woman tick? Where does she get her limitless reservoir of energy and good nature from? What makes her tick? We don't know and I doubt anyone connected to the film knows, either, sadly.
