Too bad he didn't set his sights higher".... ...unfortunately to be frank, certainly for us fellow males, it is admittedly still fascinating...yeah, its one of those contradictory or paradoxical things ...occasionally appealing to the head and the heart while essentially exploiting them thar lower regions... ...the final, post credit coda seems to tell it all: a slickly, kitsch-ily dressed porn "director" is interviewing Elektra Luxx, herself dressed as a nun, and Holly Rocket, a frizzy blond-haired yet bright bimbo (at least arithmetically quite bright), -- now there's a bunch of paradoxes, paradoxes which capture the core of the film...yes, funny, clever even insightful sometimes yet still ultimately and primarily prurient and exploitative... ...guess I'll have to see it again to verify the veracity of what I've written...yeah, I'm being facetious...I think...
(es) wrote: A childish concept filled with childish effects and cartoonish characters, only with sex jokes aplenty. Who the hell is is movie made for? The more than slightly fading reputation of the director, along with the two leads that are both no strangers to poor movies doesn't help matters much either, but the fact is that a bad comedy has really only one person to blame and that is the writer. As a throwaway 90 min slice of entertainment it's just about passable, but I strongly assume that every single copy sold of this film on DVD has never been played more than once.

(kr) wrote: 3 stars mainly for the ridiculous amounts of time Natasha Henstridge is topless for. But seriously, it wasn't a bad premise, and the group of "hunters" is entertaining although I find it kind of odd that Ben Kingsley who is supposedly in charge of the entire operation initially seems to have no clue about what is going on.. odd for the person who supposedly set off the whole process. Still a good sci-fi/horror chase movie when you think about it probably cheapened by the topless Henstridge but hey, this movie was ahead of it's time, sex sells!
(ca) wrote: A thin plot even for a Godzilla movie actually makes it better than most entries in the francise. Apparently Mothra brought some Godzilla DNA into space, which seemingly fused with a Lady Gaga-like entity with a grudge against Japan. A long special effects battle ensues. Sweet.

(kr) wrote: This is one of the best accomplishments in animation. I?m sure that Walt Disney is looking down at the illusion of life captured in these mocumentary interviews with excitement and jealousy. This is the kind of thing you can watch over and over and still catch the abundance of subtle nuances that make British humor so good.

Does he need a dermatologist, or a psychologist? This weird and witty advertising satire from the director of WITHNAIL AND I has been sadly neglected over the years.
(fr) wrote: One of the best war movies ever! This movie has an all star cast, great story and plenty of action. The music 'opening score' by Leonard Roseman is 'on target'. There's no CGI or any other special effects, just raw talent handling a real life situation. A MUST SEE!
