(ag) wrote: I don't know what the issue is but Damian Lewis needs more work! The way Lodge Kerrigan handles schizophrenia is so refreshing. He doesn't break narrative, there is no dream sequence or alternate world, no camera tricks. Since Keane is a schizophrenic nothing is set in stone, the whole movie could be in his mind. And there in lies the genius, it doesn't play it out for cheap plot twists, it lets the viewer decide. The camera sits on Keane's shoulder and we watch his face or what he looks at.

This film took a bold risk and the end result was a storm of audience members begging for more. The boxoffice success of dark night can reflect how powerful this first movie was with more and more people catching on in the year between films.

Within a few years of this films release both Jan Michael Vincent and George Peppard were starring in forgettable Reagan-era TV series. It's hard to imagine that 20th Century Fox actually thought this film would outperform STAR WARS at the box office in the summer of '77; so they released George Lucas' film first expecting it to quickly fade away and for DAMNATION ALLEY to be the top Sci-Fi contender for the summer season. It is not as bad as some critics thought it was, but its no diamond in the rough either.

(es) wrote: "Thunder Road" - a pretty good B-movie with Robert Mitchum as a transporter of Kentucky moonshine. He battles both federal agents and gangsters in this 1958 thriller. The film also features Mitchum's real life younger brother, Jim Mitchum who plays his younger brother. Terrific rainy afternoon movie...

(us) wrote: Pawn Sacrifice is directed by Edward Zwick, and it stars Tobey Maguire in a biopic about Bobby Fischer going up against the Russians in chess who are supposed to be the best chess players of all time. I've heard a bit about Bobby Fischer in that he's fantastic in chess, and I was interested to see that Edward Zwick is the director, and Steven Knight is the writer for it. Turns out that Pawn Sacrifice is a really great film that was honestly a bit better than I thought of it. I didn't careless about Tobey Maguire as an actor as I think that he's just a fine actor, but in this, he was really good in it and really portrayed the moody and mental state of Bobby Fischer really well. I was curious about Bobby Fischer, and I got a great amount of detail about him thanks to a script by Steven Knight and direction by Edward Zwick. I played chess before, and I completely sucked in it as I find chess too complicated for me to handle, and even though I might not quite know what's going on, the chess scenes are entertaining and intense to watch. The movie is a bit different from your usual biopic film in that the main character is not really a nice person in it, and when it goes to his insanity, the film gets more investing and more unpredictable for me as I didn't know whether he quits the chess game, or comes back for another game. The only issue that I have with the film, is that even though Liev Schreiber is good in it, I felt like the movie should've spent a bit more time on his character so that I can get a bit more of a glimpse of what Bobby is going up against. As is, Pawn Sacrifice is a really great film that really hold this film up thanks to Tobey Maguire's committed performance.
