Inspired by Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischütz, the film opera Hunter's Bride traces the romantic rivalry between two veterans of the Napoleonic Wars who each vie for the heart of the same woman.

I simply could not believe that an animal acting like an animal was considered to be "acting up". Poor Nim. (And poor Nim's mother...SIX taken away?) I wish I had not watched this. I'll be sad for days.
Luke B (gb) wrote: A few recycled gags and others that go on for too long don't really hurt this third installment. When it gets it right it really gets it right, and one sketch had me laughing harder than I've laughed in years. I can't even explain why. Maybe I was going a little crazy, but still, it was good to laugh to the point I was scared as to why I couldn't stop. Again it's one for Star Wars fans only, but I'm sure many people could respect the general animation and ideas. It spoofs every element of Star Wars, from simple scenes, how real people may have acted, riffing on plot holes, strange connections between the original and prequel trilogy, fan expectations, and even why some characters got an action figure. At times observational, at others just random.

Jonathan S (ru) wrote: One of the worst 'gay' movies I've ever seen and what made it over the top horrid is the fact that the filmmaker got up and talked about how grand he was for 45 minutes after the screening before taking the first question of the "Q&A". Saw it at Outfest 2007. The star/writer/producer got money from daddy to make it. The only thing that made this movie watchable is the comic relief Jay Brannan throws outside the scripted lines. The rest of the movie and especially the "Q&A" made me want to kill myself. WOW! Can't believe someone is releasing it.
Chris H (es) wrote: Jane's second directorial effort (why I watched it) has a weird comic book crossed with noir style to it, which jars at first, but you get used to it. The music is crappy, but it's not so bad that it annoys or puts you off the film. Reminded me of Lynch's Lost Highway a bit. German is so hot in this. Also never noticed how much she looks like Amy Smart before. Jane does well as both director and star here. There's a kind of neat time travel/time loop twist at the end (unfortunately I knew the bloody guy was Jane straight away, just from the look of him, but I guessed it was some version of his subconscious, not literally a future version of him), which makes the film a tad more interesting overall, once you've finished it. Jane and writer Murphy both try really hard here, but somehow it just doesn't come together into anything that is more than just 'good' at best (thus 3 stars). Commendable for its effort and unique style.
Lee M (gb) wrote: Between a 7/10 and 8/10. Add "who needs family?," and that's a good indication of how "Harry" dives into - but doesn't easily resolve - a strangely symbiotic muse (or Faustian?) relationship. Evil can be just as banal as everyday life, an idea explored with nasty wit and not brutish violence. Add a pervading sense of claustrophobia, and the film is indeed reminiscent of Hitchcock.
Luke W (kr) wrote: I think the third Anne of Green Gables film is quite good considering they didn't base the story on any of the books, but I think it's safe to say that the two previous films were better, at least in part because we love Anne Shirley too much to see her dodging bombs in France.
Ryan V (ru) wrote: One of the most memorable of Rankin-Bass' stop-motion holiday specials, Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town serves as an origin story for St. Nick. Fred Astaire narrates the journey of Kris Kringle (Mickey Rooney), a kindly toymaker who is opposed by a mean-spirited government official (Paul H. Frees). The plot dynamics for this picture are among the most creative and absorbing of Rankin-Bass' output. It's hardly surprising that this film has become an infinitely rewatched staple of the December season.
Terry C (gb) wrote: The supernatural aspect of this out-of-body-experience story actually isn't the main point of it. Rather it drives a timely message of the value of life and life worth living despite its pain and suffering, a message sorely lacking in our society today. Also driving this movie is a fine appreciation for music with its classical and indie rock soundtrack.
