Beth K (ag) wrote: didn't expect much, but it was hilarious and dark, loved the odd characters-good for an independent!

Tuukka P (nl) wrote: A documentary about the rise and fall of Boston stand-up scene. Interesting for a fan of comedy but to others it might be a bit boring. Could have been a bit more deeper look of the times and the people.

Markus S (br) wrote: Nothing new here, but quite enjoyable. While not one of Miike's best, certainly not one of his worst either. Simple story and pretty easy to follow. Some cool, memorable scenes (and quotes). All in all, a fairly good friday night movie that goes nicely along with a couple of cold ones ;)

Chris W (ca) wrote: This is a fairly obscure blaxploitation film, but it's worth seeking out. Jonathan Kaplan (Unlawful Entry) directs this action picture about an ex-ffotball player turner bounty hunter out for revenge. Isaac Hayes provides the music and stars as the title character, and he does a pretty good job. He makes for a credible action hero. I know he acted in some other movies, but it's a shame he didn't act in more, because he could have made a great career in pictures. Yaphet Kotto does a great (as always) job as the main villain, but I don't think this is his best work. It's not bad, though. The music is fun, the location shooting looks good, and the action is pretty well done, especially the mayhem at t he hospital. This probably falls somewhere in the upper half of the middle of the blaxploitation spectrum, as far as quality goes, and, while this isn't really a terrific picture in general, for a B-movie, it's quite decent so, as I said, try and seek this one out if you're in the mood for an entertaining 70s action romp.On a personal note, I actually have an extremely loose connection to this movie. My brother's girlfriend's boss's husband was a child actor, and he was in this movie. His name is Randy Gray, and in this film, he was credited as "Kid In Hospital". He's the kid that Yaphet Kotto briefly takes hostage as he tries to escape during the climactic shootout.

Steve H (it) wrote: A timeless classic which has some memorable scenes and dialoge. An old fashion picture about the innocence of children and how they see things differently to adults. A remake just wouldn't work today....

Anne L (fr) wrote: An excellent satire on the newspaper industry, as fresh and funny as it was in 1937, with a caustic script

Spencer D (it) wrote: Simple plot made all the more confusing and involving by Russell's direction.

James S (br) wrote: It's been a while since DreamWorks had an unqualified hit on their hands. The Shrek franchise is dying, and there will always be new kids who want a series all their own. I do not know whether this was planned as a potential new franchise, or if DreamWorks stumbled backward into it, but either way, this movie is great.It begins as a typical fish out of water tale; scrawny Viking can't live up to his father's expectations, needs to become a man, yadda yadda. Once we get going, we see the true depth of character present in everyone, including (and this is key) the ability to change heart. Every major character in this movie has a great arc, and it work so well with the rest of the story.The voice cast is solid, with Baruchel, Butler, Ferguson, and Ferrera all delivering. Some of the accents seem contrived, but I can't be too hard on an animated film.The world is very richly detailed, with lots of lore and backstory. It really drives home the motivations of the characters, and just feels fun. This is very enjoyable for children and adults alike.
