(ag) wrote: There are some awful things about this film, but if you can put them aside, it can be fun to watch FOR FREE. let me explain....Obviously written by the actors who play themselves. Also written to make themselves seem super cool and awesome. They will through stuff at the end of sentences that dont need to be there like "so they say your from charlestown...the place were only the tough can survive?" ... "yeah thats right, me and my brother, who are really tough, run the whole drug game here, in charlestown, a place were only the tough can survive"... and other stupid stuff to make us understand just how cool they are and rep their neighborhood.The plot doesn't make much sense (many holes) and they repeat the plot through meaningless dialogue every few scenes to remind us what is going on. like every time they bring up this one character, they mention things he has done in the movie after saying his name (this is not a spoiler alert. this info is pretty much out there in the first scene)... "greco, the man who killed my father is at the door"..."oh really? he's here early, greco, the man who killed your father and just knocked on the door is here" Its like they made this movie for people who cant comprehend basic stories or people who are texting and not paying attention....ORRRR maybe its for those who are nodding out and need a recap for the scenes they missed. Also, this was written by known drug dealers and they get the dosage wrong several times for how many 5mg pills fit into 80mg. its a very simple math equation. How did they make a living off selling pills if they cant count? This was written by complete fools. The only reason they ever made money is through luck and balls (that sounded like a line in the movie) . Intelligence....no where to be found in this movie, BUT...it is an entertaining watch if you 1. are, or were ever addicted to opiates2. do not mind awful dialogue 3. want to laugh at some terrible acting (like someone sobbing uncontrollably while reading a letter, while at the same time, remaining cool and gangster) or someone screaming to the sky different peoples names through out the movie 4. can put aside the holes in the plot and just want to enjoy the overall story line.

(jp) wrote: Shape shifting into felines, sucking the life force out of their young victims, mother son relationship that is just wrong but it's a pretty ok movie.
(de) wrote: Like a darker version of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. Gary Oldman is fantastic!
(gb) wrote: A feverish and almost uncanny on-beat thriller following a woman's decent into schizoprehnia. Holds up extremely well - a treat to watch.
(br) wrote: Brilliant film with Walter Huston as a egomaniacal ranch owner in a border town and his headstrong daughter (played brilliantly by Barbara Stanwyck) as their relationship and their land fall into peril. Anthony Mann does a superb job with this fairly basic psychological drama which makes the movie stand out against other westerns of the era. Although the casting of Wendell Corey as a love interest does not pay off the rest of the cast is perfect. The ending also is not as sharply done as the rest of the film which makes this personal favorite a flawed masterpiece.

(es) wrote: Well I liked it better than part 5 and Wes Craven's New Nightmare. I thought it was a good end to the original six and a pretty good installment. It's funny, it has pretty good special effects and has a few classic Freddy kills. It's definitely underrated and it should get more credit I think.
