Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid
As told to a psychiatrist: Mr. Peabody, middle-aged Bostonian on vacation with his wife in the Caribbean, hears mysterious, wordless singing on an uninhabited rock in the bay. Fishing in the vicinity, he catches...a mermaid. He takes her home and, though she has no spoken language, falls in love with her. Of course, his wife won't believe that thing in the bathtub is anything but a large fish. Predictable complications follow in rather tame fashion.

And since Fletch Lives is a follow-up to that film and a sequel in general, I had very low expectations. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of Fletch Lives.The first gag in Fletch Lives comes from protagonist Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher uncovering another story under the disguise of a stereotypical motel maid with nothing more than the costume and wig. The humour is clearly intended to come from the fact that it isn't convincing, but it isn't funny either. This foreshadows an unfunny film which is a prophecy that remains unfulfilled when the film gets past its intro. There is a lot to suggest it will end up bad because after this happens, a conventional plot dynamic joins the story in which Fletch inherets a massive property and gets tangled in a murder investigation. Despite this, Michael Ritchie finds ways to work around the story and keep in the spirit of his work on many other comedies. Rather than focus on the story, Michael Ritchie puts the majority of focus onto ensuring that the humour in each gag is maximised to its full capabilities. He doesn't neglect the need for the story to function, he just lets it do its own thing while he specializes in what he is best at. Comedies are clearly the man's speciality, and though Fletch Lives is hardly as original as many of his other films, it still transcends expectations as a sequel delivers plenty of laughs.The actual narrative in Fletch Lives has some rather edgy subject matter since the tale concerns murder, corruption and roadhouse bikers. Yet the premise hardly takes itself seriously, powering through these plot points with humourous spirit and little drama. To keep things enjoyable, Fletch Lives maintains a light nature about it, making for an easy viewing experience. This is largely because the main character takes his job seriously but never gives a second thought to the people he encounters along the way. There are jokes found in essentially every situation with the least entertaining moments coming from the obligatory yet extremely subtle addition of a romance story as a sideplot. The story never gets bogged down by moments of senseless narrative building or dramatic distractions. It is very clearly a comedy which intends to keep moving along at a reasonably fast pace, cutting through many of its familiar conventions with enough speed to ignore its thin story. There is no denying that the story in Fletch is not brilliant and doesn't carry the originality of its predecessor, nor as much of a focus on humourous investigative journalism since it has a larger scope of narrative and many more supporting characters. However, the narrative is far more loose this time around which allows the feature to spiral into a series of different comic sketches which offers Chevy Chase an opportunity to flex his comedic muscles in the context of multiple different disguises and situations with a loose narrative to tie it all together. Fletch Lives is largely a very different film to its predecessor due to a different kind of story and alternative structure, and this means that it doesn't attempt to copy its predecessor though it carries a similar sense of humour and the same protagonist over. Michael Ritchie once again brings an energetic love for the material to the character of Fletch and delivers a sequel which ultimately stands as an enjoyable comedy of its own right, as well as an effective sequel.The most entertaining part of Fletch Lives is the fact that Chevy Chase is tenaciously confident in the role. In the favourite role of his career, Chevy Chase brings one of his finest characters back to Fletch Lives and brings him to life once more. The man has a clearly passionate love for the role and knows how to balance the serious nature of the character as an investigator with a love for the comic material, taking an approach which echoes the glory days of Leslie Nielsen with a much faster attitude. The material comes to Chevy chase almost instinctively and he fires it out with a swift and merciless pace which gives viewers a time to laugh but not enough time to question anything before another joke comes along. The man is a very charismatic comedian who brings a humourous mood to every situation in the film, bouncing off every other actor who challenges him. The entirety of Fletch Lives rests very heavily on the shoulders of Chevy Chase, and Fletch Lives proves that he is capable of supporting it. I must say I was surprised just how consistently funny Chevy Chase was, so Fletch Lives has given me the inclination to explore his other films even more so.R. Lee Ermey is also a memorable cast member. Portraying the tele-evangalist Jimmy Lee Farnsworth, R. Lee Ermey is very much against type for once in Fletch Lives. Surely enough, he commands the role very nicely. Though often typecast in the role of authority figures, particularly of those within the military, R. Lee Ermey is offered the chance to work in a comedy film this time. He is able to carry over enough of his natural persona to deliver an intense voice articulation while he mimics a stereotypical media preacher with a strong dedication to the facade of a TV host with healing abilities. R. Lee Ermey's charisma is very rich, and it's a refreshing change of pace to witness him in a comedy.Hal Holbrook also shares some strong interactions with Chevy Chase, as does Randall "Tex" Cobb.Fletch Lives has a looser structure than its predecessor and a more conventional plot, but with Michael Ritchie's fast-paced directorial skill and Chevy Chase's endless comic spirit, it proves to be a surprisingly worthy sequel.

They might have the marine life, but Razorback takes the Man Vs Evil Nature plot and uses it to propel its narrative down a music video dreamscape so smokey & cacophonous Tony Scott & Terry Gilliam wake from terror sweats contemplating their failure to capture it's insanity. Bill Kerr is Jake Cullen, a Kangaroo hunter who trades one killing spree for another after a boar the size of a rhino carries off his infant grandson in its tusks. Partnering up with Canadian blank slate Gregory Harrison and wildlife tracker Arkie Whiteley, Kerr navigates an endless display of foreground skulls to rid the outback of the great beast. But is Razorback the real threat, or is the true face of pockmarked evil belong to Dicko Baker and his piggy pleasure squeals? Not VF.

(au) wrote: Out of the Past is the story of a private eye who's being pursued by the mistakes of his past because of one job he failed to do right. It's probably the ultimate film noir, as it fits every stereotype of the genre. I love the 3 primary cast members of the film, and they are perfect for their roles. Robert Mitchum looks and acts just like a street smart gumshoe who can often be one step ahead of everyone else. He is the essence of cool. Kirk Douglas is the ideal gambler/mobster. He has a charm to his performance, but also gives off an air of strength that helps you see why Mitchum might not want to cross him. However the best casting was Jane Greer. She is absolutely gorgeous and it is simple to see why men fall in love with her and also believe whatever she says. It is one of the most intriguing femme fatale performances because as a viewer I bought everything she was saying as well, so I was in the same boat with the characters, never knowing when she could be trusted. As long as I'm talking about cast, though, I do have to complain about one decision they made. There was another woman who played an accountant or something and she looks way too much like Jane Greer to the point where I was genuinely confused if it was the same person they were calling by another name. For about 5 scenes in a row I didn't know which woman I was watching, and that should not happen in a movie that already has enough plot complexity.Out of the Past looks great and, as with most noir, the cinematographer did a great job of utilizing darkness and shadows to add intrigue to various scenes. I also have never mentioned this because I'm not a fan of smoking, but the way that cigarette smoke adds a haziness to the atmosphere in these films is extremely appropriate. I did enjoy this story, but it is one where I really got annoyed with the end, so I'll have to warn that spoilers are coming now. One of the troubles with all the movies from this era (at least as I understand it) is that the Production Code that was in place dictated that bad guys couldn't get away with it. This is a particular problem for noir films as most of the characters ride the line between good and bad. However in Out of the Past I was excited because it seemed that Mitchum's character had kept his nose clean enough to survive, and yet they kill him off at the end. It's not a deal-breaker that makes me hate the film, but it is one thing that rubbed me the wrong way and kept this from being something special in my book. Still, Out of the Past is a great entry in the genre, and it is one I would gladly watch again.

(au) wrote: Is it good? No, no way. But it IS entertaining as hell, easy going, and the performances are actually not that bad (at least those from the main cast). It is absolutely rewatchable, and the story is easy to understand (mostly because it is just really dumb). But I can't go to hard on this movie, because in the genre of videogame-movies this might just be one of the best (which really isn't saying much though).
