In the sixteenth century, Miguel de Cervantes, poet, playwright, and part-time actor, has been arrested, together with his manservant, by the Spanish Inquisition. They are accused of presenting an entertainment offensive to the Inquisition. Inside the huge dungeon into which they have been cast, the other prisoners gang up on Cervantes and his manservant, and begin a mock trial, with the intention of stealing or burning his possessions. Cervantes wishes to desperately save a manuscript he carries with him and stages, with costumes, makeup, and the participation of the other prisoners, an unusual defense--the story of Don Quixote.
This musical version of Don Quixote is framed by an incident allegedly from the life of its author, Miguel de Cervantes. Don Quixote is the mad, aging nobleman who embarrasses his ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

If you've seen the first one, you already know how unbelievably terrible everything is: writing, direction, acting, cinematography, music... EVERYTHING! Anybody can make a bad movie, but it takes a special kind of mental illness for all the filmmaking decisions made in Birdemic 2.Here's what's new: different gif files of birds, a scene of nudity, they're in California, a bizarre jellyfish attack, cavemen, zombies, and there are two new idiots running around shooting bad CG birds. But everything is pretty much the same as the first, down to the scenes. Idiot sees girl in a restaurant, they somehow become a couple, they get a cartoonishly simple amount of money, they go on a few dates, then BIRDEMIC!! The birds attack and kill people in hilarious ways and they fly off with no resolution. The End. This is the same as the first film with barely any deviation from the plot.Honestly though, it's entertaining because it's so bad. There are some filmmakers who try to create deliberately bad films, but you cannot create camp. If you've seen any interviews or DVD special features with the director James Nguyen, you'll see that he actually believes he's making a good film... he references Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, and Orson Welles as his influences. He loves making films, but he is not a filmmaker... he has no understanding of how good films are written, shot, and edited. But I'd rather watch a trainwreck like Birdemic 2 than a self-serving and boring mockbuster any day (ie films made by The Asylum). Birdemic is a huge piece of crap that is an unsightly stain on cinema, but that's what you should be expecting.

Nice, gentle character stuff, but it sure ain't His Girl Friday, that's for sure. Simply not broad enough to be that funny. The sports scenes don't have much directorial juice either, too many lazy closeups. There is SOME inherent historical interest in 1920s college footie (and the associated politics and sports reporting), but A League of their Own did the period-sports thing so much better. And Bull Durham the sports-love triangle thing SO much better. Yet it's also a very NICE film, charming, and it does raise quite a view smiles. Especially the cow's expression at the start. A nice college try.

There are never teams like this on the big screen anymore. Judy Garland sings so amazing (as always) in this. Mickey Rooney is so good and can hold his own across Garland. Yes it is a musical and yes its awesome! The music is great, the singing is cute and the dancing is fun. I loved every second. :)

The movie has a strange but shallow set-up that is centered around the hospital... some scenarios working better than others, but at least it plays for suspense instead of gore. Lee Grant is pretty good (did she ever change her appearance or hair?). The hospital setting could have been used to greater extent, and of course reeks of the skeleton crew Haddonfield Hospital where no one stays and no one works. I'd be up for a reboot of this.

The anti-Forrest Gump film, a view on the corrupt world through the innocent eyes of his lead character. Emotional connection is lacking through most of the film, though the gritty style is fearlessly repellent.
