(gb) wrote: Not at all as bad as people are trying to claim. The worst part is probably just Afflecks accent dipping in and out. Besides that, the story is a little bloated; trying to fit all this story in makes it come off as a little episodic rather than filmic. If anything the screenplay or editing just needed some tightening. Otherwise, it's an entertaining period gangster flick, with some beautiful imagery.

(br) wrote: Grease is a Romantic Comedy/Musical set in the 1950's about two students who fall in love in the summer and when they run into each other at Rydell High they both try to work through their differences to rekindle their romance. This movie is at its core a very cheesy, fun, entertaining film filled with laughs, romance, and a tonne of energy. Being a musical it features many memorable songs that are sure to be stuck in your head for a really long time especially when you've seen it as many times as i have. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John star in what are probably their most iconic roles as Danny and Sandy respectively. This high school musical is a classic in the genre and a fan favourite stretching over multiple generations. Once you get into the mindset that you are going to be watching a very cheesy 70's musical there is no way you cannot enjoy this film. The dialogue is nothing amazing and it is very cheesy, but it works because the film embraces what it is rather than trying to have completely serious interactions. The comedy all works and although some of it is very exaggerated and rather silly it still feels very natural as this group of friends have so much chemistry and fun together. The quick one liners are where a lot of the comedy comes from, some of which are so quick that you might miss and pick up on the next viewing. It all comes down to the very well written characters, all of whom have very distinct and different personalities that clash and make for many very entertaining scenes. And despite there being a lot of characters, you never feel as though any of them are being completely ignored as each one is given a presence in the film, some larger than others but you feel like you know all of them. If you have seen a few musicals, the plot of this film is absolutely nothing you haven't seen before, and it definitely plays out how you would expect it to, but it is not at all a bad thing. When you are having fun, laughing at the jokes, and singing along with the songs, the plot becomes an afterthought and you don't think about it too much, you just enjoy the film. The pacing of the film is something that personally doesn't bother me but for newcomers to the film it is probably going to be the deciding factor in whether they enjoy it or not. Some sections of the film it do slow down and they delve a little more into the romantic elements of the film which are crucial to seeing the journey these characters take throughout the film. But if you aren't as invested in these characters you won't respond to these sequences very well. So in the end, Grease is a high school rom/com classic in the musical genre and is something that generations today can still watch and enjoy, one of the best of all time. Personally this one of my most watched films of all time believe it or not. You have your romance, your comedy, and most importantly those songs that will never leave your head whether you want them to or not. It's such a very energetic film with a talented cast and there is just an all round very good time to be had with this film. 8.7/10
(de) wrote: Goodish, and well-intentioned, but not great. Based on a true story, this should be a gut-wrenching emotional roller-coaster ride. The movie feels cold, empty and sterile, despite its subject matter. While we are given glimpses of the despicableness of the Nazi regime, the movie pulls its punches. In place of genuine emotion, we have overwrought sub-plots, and an excess of sub-plots. This makes the movie overly long, without really adding to the drama. Some of the acting is in line with this overwroughtness, being over-acted, almost camp.Not all the performances are so bad, though. Max von Sydow is excellent as the captain. Minor roles include a host of big names: Orson Welles, James Mason, Denholm Elliott, Katharine Ross, Jose Ferrer, Ben Gazzara.Worth watching as a reminder of a dark period in human history, and the lengths of human bigotry.
