(ca) wrote: This is your average Tim Allen comedy. Not that its bad that it can only be average. But the fact that Patrick Warburton only has a small part in this one is very bad,as i think he is a talented actor. Watch ONLY if you are a Tim Allen fan!

(us) wrote: Paul Telfer is gorgeous and Elizabeth Perkins is great! Unfortunately, the writing is really clumsy. I never understand why people insist upon bastardizing myths in modern re-tellings. The reason they've lasted is that they are great as is. This story ends up being more Roman than Greek with all of it's plotting and suspicion. I'm still waiting for the one, great, faithful Hercules film.

(de) wrote: "Straight to Hell" starts with three hitmen, Norwood(Sy Richardson), Simms(Joe Strummer), and Willy(Dick Rude, who also co-wrote), brutally murdering a bed, instead of their intended target. Fearing for their physical safety, they hightail it out of town with Norwood's pregnant girlfriend Velma(Courtney Love), but not before a little fundraising at the local bank. It's a shame they did not also buy a new car while they were at it because their old car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Eventually, they stumble upon a town full of desperadoes, two of whom they rescue from bounty hunters. The quirky neo-punk spaghetti western "Straight to Hell" may have one of the strangest casts of all time(now, there's an idea for a list), made up largely of musicians that also includes Dennis Hopper, Grace Jones and Jim Jarmusch.(And somehow I missed Elvis Costello.) Of everybody, Joe Strummer makes the best impression. The eclectic cast and a certain chaotic energy are what makes this at least watchable, as director Alex Cox almost stumbles across a sign of intelligent life and thought.

(mx) wrote: The final shot breaking the fourth wall almost undoes everything, but otherwise this film holds up nicely.I love the character interactions between youth and adult - it's so risqu and yet normalized over the course of its awkwardness. That they develop into a kind of quasi-posse is actually exciting. A lot of times we see these cliques form of people that should never be friends, and we really embrace that. Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men... But that's contrived, they are aiming at selling us on this should-never-be status, but meanwhile we know what they're driving at. Here, the forbidden is clear with stakes raises by having an assistant principal involved who knows all these youths through school - she definitely knows she shouldn't be here, but she feels more free amongst them. It creates conflict at home with her conservative, money man, adult-oriented husband John, perfectly embodied by Joshua Harto. The core of the group are Leigh, Todd, Little Jason, and Matt. There's an odd moment that kind of works when director Garcia sidesteps Todd and Matt getting to know one another, something which will further develop. It's at this point the camera focuses on a two-shot ensconcing Leigh and Little Jason intimately as they get to know one another over some pot. The moonlight may backlights them a bit too stark, but I appreciate that it's there to create some separation and add an element to the scene that'd otherwise be muddled in a muted navy blue. What this isolation does is it allows for Matt and Todd to develop without having to contrive a lengthy dialogue - we need to keep Leigh and Little Jason the central focus, but we'd like to know that each time we arrive at the Todd and Matt, there's more to their story. Also, not knowing just what they're developing allows us to wonder for a moment whether or not what Todd is doing to Matt later is acceptable to Matt... It is definitely not, and creates such mistrust that it leads to his ultimate demise, having nobody left to trust or care about in Ridgefield, CT. Cinematographer does a quality job setting director's stage, keeping the frame interesting at all times. Use of wide-lens is select, but poignant. There's a low angle capturing Bell at her lifeguard chair near the rail. There's them driving through the field, recapturing their youth, wide lens freely panning around to create a sense of dizzying freedom. There's a shot framing the four adults a the table of a restaurant oddly placed in front of a gas station, whose parking lot is inhabited by skaters. It stands out without anyone having to point it out, and I'd of preferred they left it that way rather than the cheesy cutaways that come later in the scene. Its as if Garcia was backing herself up, not confident that framing them wide, in focus, and spotlit in the BG would do the job. It's an ugly shot with the gas station, but it's kind of supposed to be, and I ultimately like what it foretells. These worlds of adult and youth are going to mere, FUELING the flames that ignite illicitly -- they are later at a youth party with some kind of bonfire going.
