(it) wrote: Not many films are as warm and authentic as Spectacular Now. It modest small town atmosphere is perfect. The characters are dressed plainly and the film takes place at mild parties, in a little suit shop and in cookie cutter suburban homes. Sutter is an average kid that drives an average car. And along with its humble beginnings, I really liked how intimate and down to earth it was. The characters are sincerely ordinary and the dialogue is sharp, but realistic. The conversations are natural, normal ones and the characters use words that regular people would. None of it feels rehearsed or artificial. When the characters interact, it feels genuine and this film's appeal its imminently likable characters. Sutter is a charming slacker who begins harmless and grows more dynamic by the end. He spends most of the story giggling and having fun, but then spirals out of control. He falls for Amy, the nerdy bookworm that has never partied before and gets her first taste of adventure. And besides the fact that the leads provide warmth to the story and have easy chemistry, they also develop each other. They learn things about themselves and unearth some ugly truths from their pasts. The story was sentimental and fun, but bittersweet at the end.One of the only things I can criticize is the alcoholism in the film. I can understand if Sutter has a few beers at parties, but not when he carries a flask with him everywhere he goes, is perpetually drinking and driving drunk. It is pretty trashy and ridiculous, and the fact that he involves Amy in it is even worse. They act like its normal for kids to slip hard liquor into their sodas at school and work or talk their way into bars and do shots with the bartender. It isn't. There are other things I really liked though. I liked that the story had some weight, that Sutter had a darker side and he realized his true challenge was overcoming himself. I liked that they both had to face their parents, that Amy came out stronger and Sutter was left damaged by it. I also think the leads had fantastic performances because the characters were so universal. I know so many kids like them and they were familiar, but unique.
(kr) wrote: Three Kings begins as a cynical, even disrespectful, Gulf War parody. By the end it evolves into a movie that's equal parts dark comedy and philosophical examination of both war and inaction. It asks hard questions, but is wise enough to realize that complex problems don't have simple answers.
(jp) wrote: a thin storyline with paper-thin performances still makes a fun movie. the stereotypes are hilarious,but don't gravitate towards this movie is you want anything more. Jean Paul Pitoc actually beats out his co-stars when it comes to performing earnestly. Look out for the hilarious scene with the drag queen in the bathroom! That's the best part.

(de) wrote: Great psychlogical, neo noir thriller. I particulary like the b&w flashback scenes that involves the Emma Thompson character's past. A McGuffin object(A pair of scissors which writer Scott Frank would later use in Minority Report) the private investigator played by Kenneth Branagh who believes he knows all the clues to uncover the idenitity of(Thompson) and a great score by Patrick Doyle. "Dead Again" almost feels like a TV picture but suceeds on every level going back to true storytelling that involves more on the characters rather then on the plot.

(au) wrote: They say dogs are man's best friend, well this reminded me of why I'm a cat person. As someone who was attacked by a dog at a very young age, there is something deeply cemented in me to fear dogs. So being trapped in a broken car on a hot day(s) and having a large rabid beast waiting outside is a bit of nightmare, just a bit. However, despite the great set up, I really couldn't be too invested in this film. Maybe because the characters aren't the most likeable, they're not, but I think it's more than that. The film just seems to be nothing special in the realm of stranded horror films. It's a fine little piece, but with so many films out there with the same premise done much better; The Shallows, Night of the Living Dead, and Dog Soldiers, it just seems like this doesn't have enough to rise above the crowd. At least this character can boost something those others can't. It created a term for a bad or evil dog that will live forever in pop culture. When people think of evil canines, they'll think of the name Cujo. So cheers on that one mate, you've gotten your role in pop culture and it's here to stay.
