Father to Son
The film examines the painful relationship between fathers and sons through the eyes of one family. Four generations of men are featured in the film. Father to Son deals with the conflict between generations and their subjective memories, and the way different methods of raising children pass from one generation to the next. How often and to what extent do we repeat the behavioural patterns of our fathers; can we change or break these patterns or is repeating them inescapable, and how many generations are needed for change to occur? Are the values we have inherited from our fathers still valid in the modern world? One of the leading themes of this film is the sensitivity of a man and a boy, and its preservation and suppression.

Micahel Hui is a really small fry who sign a 8 year contract with the MTV network. After a year plus he still have not get any result and often get into trouble. Ricky Hui is his brother who is deaf but rather good at inventing gadgets. Sam Hui and his sister performs magic show and owes money to a singh, another performer. Sister likes Ricky. After Michael create trouble again, he volunteer to go for another show but it is the dangerous singh shooting arrows. Michael ws lucky he fainted during the 2nd round cos all the arrows end up at the body. Ricky invented a new clap activated tv. Michael got a call to try out a hosting gig and he claps out loud and the tv exploded. He fell down and a bucket of super glue fell onto him and causes quite a mayhem. Ricky ate the porridge full of pepper which Michael pours during the phonecall and he he dip into the fish tank. Michael did quite well for the crude tv show and got a contract of 5 years. He goes to find the new manager for the dismiss of the contract but she refuse. He get Ricky to help him steal but the henchman came in. Ricky trap hmself in the safe. Michael escape and end up at Sam magic show. The contract also with him. He get it back and needed his help to save Ricky. The office is a set up. Ricky and Michael escapes and Sam is pursue by another guy and he end up at singh's magic show. Singh perform the deadly saw cut and said Sam will never return but he pops in. Both of them try to out perform one another and the boss is happy of the ratings. Michael also end up at a dance segment and make such a big mess. Ricky throw in his laughing bomb and the audiences laugh so hard and impress the boss too. The manager resign as she can't get the promised ratings and is among the past managers to suicide. Michael and Sam were employ to be the new managers for the network. After a zany demo of Ricky's clap tv, they were offer a 8 year contract but like before, it was blank with details to be fill in later. They refuse to sign. Fills with quite alot of madcap, funny moments but the ending was quite weak. But it is consider a breakthrough in the 70s HK cinema.

L'histoire par contre m'a un chouillat mue. On reconnat la patte Tezuka dans l'humanit des personnages malgr un aspect au premier abord monstrueux. Quant la fin, au moment o j'cris ces lignes, je ne saurai la prdire. Ce qui est un gage de qualit.Malgr tout se laisse regarder trs volontiers pour ceux qui aiment ce genre de conte.

After playing a cruel trick with the CB on truck driver "Rusty Nail", they finds themselves fighting for their lives against the psychotic trucker. I thought this movie was going to be bad with stupid and annoying characters and horrible writing but this movie didn't suck. I enjoyed this movie and I felt sorry for the tucker even when he did try to kill some people.

By that statement I mean that this film, along side the rest of Brian De Palma's films completely stands out as a different and weird film that doesn't really confine itself to De Palma's original style. I absolutely love De Palma's style, but I have to give this movie credit for having the balls to be completely different and original. One of his best!

(it) wrote: *** out of **** A small fishing town is in panic over the recent arrival of some unwanted guests: a plethora of fish-people with the ability to walk on land and swim in the ocean alike! They usually prey on beautiful young women frolicking near their waters, although as the poster indicates; they hunt these babes not for feeding, but for mating! The townsfolk are determined to put an end to this madness by making the hunters become the hunted. In fact, they are but civilians; civil human beings. So they should have no trouble stocking up on artillery so that they may cleanse the nearby waters of this newfound filth. In the process, they shall attempt to discover the origins of these strange beings with the help of a doctor character (played by Ann Turkel), who knows all about the evolutionary structure of frogs and whatnot, which apparently helps in this situation. So maybe they're not fish-people after all. No, they're Humanoids from the Deep. If the plot for the Roger Corman-produced "Humanoids from the Deep" sounds a bit familiar, then that's because it most certainly is. The film is reminiscent of B-movies from the 50's in the best of ways. Why have a film evoking that era, from that era, when you can have it in 1980? It's a wild, hilarious, genuinely rowdy horror film that takes its audience more seriously than it takes itself. Expect the expected - blood, boobs, and babes - along with the unexpected and you'll know a fraction of what you're in for. Somehow, it manages to elicit a laugh a minute; whether it's in the film's stereotypical presentation of fisherman or the cheesy creature effects. It's mindless, but it's a lot of fun. Obviously, it's not about characters. This film says "Characters? Bah, who needs 'em when you've got tits and ass?" In a film that has the antique-like charm of being a few decades old, this mentality is very much welcome; and this is a movie that's sleazy without being absolutely repulsive. I wouldn't say it goes COMPLETELY over-the-top, but there are scenes of such raw absurdity that you couldn't call it particularly tame either. It's not one of the best films Roger Corman ever produced, but damn it, it's another one of the good ones. Corman is known for introducing young talents into the cinema scene; and "Humanoids from the Deep" was early work for the likes of Rob Bottin - creator of the humanoids - and composer James Horner, among others. It's also director Barbara Peeters' most well-known feature. And yet I hear she isn't too proud of it. Apparently they called in a second unit director to shoot all the scenes involving sex, nudity, and (ahem) fish rape as well as the more violent sequences. Hell, I'm glad he stepped in; what would this film be without those prime elements of classic sleaze? It would be a decent looking movie with an entertaining ocean-side backdrop, and that would have been it. The film wouldn't have been remembered; but instead, it's already been restored for DVD/Blu-Ray and even remade once. I admire the work Peeters did as well as whatever her second unit director did to spice the thing up; because all of it comes together in a conclusive and satisfying whole. But let's elaborate on the fish rape. It's probably one of the quirkiest elements of this film. And that's saying something for a movie known for its quirky elements alone. The scenes concerning the deflowering of beach-bound beauties aren't overly graphic but there's nudity aplenty and to be completely honest, a grotesque being with webbed feet and hands forcing himself onto a young woman doesn't exactly turn me on. But it does make me laugh. Another thing that makes me laugh is the finale; which is all explosions and gruesome death, with a sound effect of a woman's frightened screams being used over and over again as if the filmmakers had no other resources (or voices) to turn to. The icing on the cake is a twist ending that rips off the famous Chest-burster scene from Ridley Scott's "Alien". On a whole, it's a movie that steals a lot like the brainless mongoloid movie it is. But hey...at least it's non-pretentious and knows its audience all too well.
