Dave M (au) wrote: "The To Do List" (R, 1:44) is a raunchy comedy from first-time writer/director Maggie Carey, who loosely based the movie on her real-life experiences. The film stars the very talented Aubrey Plaza ("Parks and Recreation") as Brandy Klark, a brilliant high school graduate who becomes convinced that she has to prepare for college by having all the sexual experiences that her commitment to studying and her social awkwardness have not allowed for. Her sister (played by Rachel Bilson from the CW series "Hart of Dixie") and Brandy's two sexually experienced besties (Alia Shawkat and Sarah Steele) encourage her, and Brandy gets to work. She approaches her problem as if she's preparing to take the SATs - in another language. She makes a list of sexual experiences and methodically works her way down the list with a variety of guys from her graduating class. It's an interesting set-up with potential for some very naughty humor, but I found the film lacking in execution.There are a number of things in this movie that just don't make sense. How could such a smart girl be so clueless about sex? (Inexperienced, yes, but totally ignorant?) Why would two experienced, socially well-adjusted girls be best friends with the arrogant, closed-off Brandy? And how could Brandy, who had barely kissed a boy before graduating high school, so quickly and easily embrace her inner slut? I could go on. This film just becomes a series of awkward and disgusting moments that are supposed to make us laugh, but left me just feeling....dirty. Now, "The To Do List" does have its funny moments, but there would have been more if Carey had shown just a little more restraint. Often, sexual situations in a comedy are funniest when more is left to the imagination. It's both surprising and disappointing that the director would let these gags go farther than they needed to, because otherwise she managed her cast extremely well!The supporting players are a Who's Who of NBC's best actors, but they all play against type. These stars of NBC sitcoms (including Donald Glover from "Community", Nolan Gould from "Modern Family" and Jack McBrayer from "30 Rock"), Saturday Night Live (Bill Hader and Andy Samberg) and even NBC dramas (Connie Britton and Scott Porter from "Friday Night Lights" and Clark Gregg from "The West Wing") all give effective and entertaining performances without relying on the specific qualities that have made them successful in previous roles. In fact, I can't remember the last time I've seen an ensemble of actors (especially comic actors) so universally separate themselves from their most popular characters. It's too bad that their efforts were not in support of a better script or a funnier movie. I would recommend that you leave "The To Do List" off of your "Movies To See List", something that it's too late for me to do. At this point, all I can do is tell you about this movie's few strengths, many weaknesses and give the film a "C".

I'm sure many film critics that poo pooed this small film lauded the nonsense Micheal Moore has slopped out over the years. Ignore them if you might like a little fun poked at the stuffy self inflated liberal mindset.

Christopher was a guy helping the jews hide from the nazis. he fell in love with one of the jewish men and were ultimately discovered by the Nazis and killed. Come to present day, and here he is with a daughter about to get married, but when he meets the future son-in-law, he feels it is his boyfriend from long time ago. Seems like it was a low budget movie, but still good to watch at least once, watch the shorts on the dvd extras menu.

Jens T (es) wrote: The United States of America. The land of opportunities. A country which has always had a horde of immigrants from all over the world. Where everyone tend to seek the american dream and finally live in peace and freedom to finally be who they are without prosecution. This was the case with the Jews living in Russia. Although they where not psychically abused in the US, they were still looked down upon, and was denied high profile jobs, and had to live in ghettos. The only way that any Jew could succeed was to throw away their Jewishness, their traditions, their language, their clothes, their beards and their names.One particularly street named Hester Street in Manhattan, New York, where there was a significant large Yiddish speaking population of Jewish immigrants. The year is 1896, and we follow the Russian immigrant named Jake (originally Yankl) who's lived in America for three years. A typical Americanized Jew. But one day he receives a letter that his father back in Russia is dead, and that his wife, Gitl (Carol Kane) and their son, Yossele is gonna leave Russia and join her husband in the US. But throwing away her Jewishness isn't as easy for her as it was for Jake. And all her traditional rituals makes Jake angry and he often result to violence, which after a long time ends up with a divorce.Hester Street is an atmospheric period drama, which sometimes feels like a silent film or a documentary with it's black and white photography. It's like diving into a historical photo album which takes us back in time to show us an old New York and it's ethnic quarters. And I also love when the actors actually spoke Yiddish, the language which they used to speak back in the old country. But what I didn't like about this film was that the ending wasn't very satisfying. There's no reconciliation, and the main character Jake is so two dimensional and so simple. But on the other side it's kind of a ironic ending for Gitl's sake. Overall it's a good period piece, and a great Oscar nominated performance by Carol Kane. Thumbs up.

Art S (gb) wrote: An obvious influence on Ozu's Tokyo Story (1953), Leo McCarey's film also shows the sad plight of elderly parents who realize that they cannot rely on their adult children. In this case, Beulah Bondi and Victor Moore have had their house foreclosed on by the bank and must move out; this is the Depression, after all, and a number of the men in the film are also out of work. This becomes an excuse justifying the decision not to take the parents in. Instead, the couple is split up - after 50 years of marriage - and sent to separate houses. Bondi slowly drives son Thomas Mitchell's family crazy with incessant talking and good-natured meddling. Moore is also in the way in daughter Cora's house. Eventually, the kids plan to send him to California (where another daughter lives) and to put her in a nursing home for women. Before they part again, the parents are allowed one last day in New York City, where they revisit the locations of their honeymoon decades earlier. Yes, it's a real tearjerker but the moments feel authentic and McCarey gives Bondi and Moore room to react to and reflect on their situation. The adult children (and teen granddaughter) are also treated humanely. The end result, as in Ozu's film, is a profound condemnation of a society that does not value its elders, even as it leaves you feeling that every individual "has their reasons". A humanistic classic that resonates even more as we age.

SagaciousFrank (it) wrote: 'Buried' is a tour de force in acting, writing, and direction, and exemplary of just how good a film can be in a minimalistic setting and carried by only.one on screen actor for the entire run time. Reynolds is nothing short of amazing in this role, and the writing also sets a high standard, ebbing and flowing seamlessly to deliver a tense, suspenseful, and emotional pay off from beginning to end. And good news for those audiophiles who have a decent surround sound set up, as the coffin setting notwithstanding, this has a very immersive and clever sound design. Well worth owning on Blu-Ray for the Audio/Video quality. 4.5/5*
