(nl) wrote: Another lame attempt at trying to be a modern teen comedy but sucks hard instead. A bad mix of Heathers and Clueless and throw in characters you don't care about and another hazy look at high school as satire and you have Jawbreaker. Reagan High, don't you get it? There was something about a m urder of one of the girls via a jawbreaker. Stupid and uninteresting. Rose McGowan was hot but it's the old "I'm in my mid 20's and playing a teenager."
(ca) wrote: It has a delightful lack of pacing, two main characters not quite hapless enough to be irritating and some genuine wit. Unfortunately, it all falls apart at the end. It's like the writers decided not to even bother with a climax, though it does seem like there's going to be one for a while there. They seem to set it up. And then nothing happens. It just ends as though there never was a conflict to begin with. It's incredibly dumb and disappointing. It delivers no satisfaction. In fact, the entire film seems to play at setting up situations and relationships that promise conflict and drama and comedy and then just stops short of actually having any of it. Just like the main "bad guy" Big Fat Bernie Gayle, it keeps threatening to do something, but never actually does. It's actually pretty perplexing. Ultimately, even if you found it diverting and mildly entertaining you cannot, in good conscience, give the film a pass.

(gb) wrote: Danny Peary's essay in Cult Movies homes in on Tom Laughlin and Dolores Taylor's machinations to have the picture made and released to maximally exploit the youth audience. I liked it more than I expected to. I was amazed/appalled at how issues it broached are paralleled in our current events.
(gb) wrote: Journey to the Far Side of the Sun isn't so much a "fun" movie as it is a "thinking man's" movie, but even in that regard it's dwarfed by other movies of its kind, both from its era and elsewhere along the timeline of cinema Science Fiction. It's a quality distraction, spinning a good, healthy yarn but one that's built more on interesting superficialities rather than complex emotion or intimate details of the human condition. Production design is strong for a movie of this size and scope, but the performances are flat, thanks largely to mechanical characters meant to convey information rather than realistically populate the film's world.
(ag) wrote: A peculiar romantic comedy from Howard Hawks that still holds up reasonably well despite a plot inextricably linked to a specific and relatively brief moment in post-WWII history. Cary Grant always seemed much more comfortable in comedy and this one is no exception as he breezes effortlessly through the material. The film is at its best when Grant's French Army officer Henri Rochard is pitted against US Army bureaucracy trying to emigrate to America with his Army wife (Ann Sheridan), while trying to control his temper. He has good chemistry with Sheridan but the interplay between the two gets tiresome in places. On the plus side, it's a wonder how some of the more prurient parts (e.g. Sheridan's nipples) of the movie slipped past the Hays board. The movie's punchline in the closing minutes is barely worth waiting for as it seems so much more could have been done with the opportunity of having Cary Grant in drag.
