(de) wrote: If there's anybody funnier than Lewis Black, I might just eat my hat. This is a great show and he starts it off right by describing why his act couldn't be at the Kennedy Center. I've probably seen this a dozen times and the part when he impersonates the spy network makes me roll everytime. He's hilarious! I can't wait to see him!

(gb) wrote: Once in a while, I do enjoy Gus Van Sant, who, for me, is a lot like Steven Soderbergh: really versatile, talented, and definitely important. This movie has been on my list of films to see since I first wrote it over five years ago. Yes, I'm serious. I'm not sure why it took me so long to finally see it, but I'm glad I finally did.Allegedly this is supposed to be loosely based on the Shakespeare works Henry IV Parts I and II and Henry V, but I didn't really see that. Of course, it would probably help if I was actually familiar with those works, but still. Okay, so sometimes the dialogue does come off as somewhat Shakespearean because of the delivery, but I really don't see the whole thing of translating historical dramas into a dream-like road movie about two hustlers.We mostly follow Mike Waters, a sensitive young street hustler with narcolepsy. He works the streets of Portland and Seattle, but longs to find his mother who abandoned him at a young age. His search leads him to all kinds of places, namely Idaho (where he's originally from), but overseas as well. Joining him on his quest for "home" is Scott Favor the unrequited love interest. Scott, like Mike, is a hustler, but he's from a more well-to-do background. In fact, he's the wayward son of Portland's mayor. He says he'll eventually straighten up and do as his father wishes, but for the time being, he's happy being on the mean streets with all kinds of colorful characters.The film was a rather big deal when it came out, and I can see why. It sheds light on an interesting subculture, it's got some mostly strong direction, great visuals, it continued Van Sant's wave of success, and featured some terrific performances from River Phoenix as Mike and, yes, shockingly enough, Keanu Reeves as Scott. I don't know what happened to him that caused him to be how he is now, but yeah, back in the day, he was actually a credible and legitimately good performer. Other performers are good too, but these guys are the real highlight.Even though this is a good movie, and I can see why it has a very positive reputation, it's not perfect. It's merely good, instead of great, hasn't really aged that well, doesn't seem that fresh anymore, and has a tendency to meander a little too much a little too often. It does provide a nice and sensible look at Gen X hustlers, but even then it comes off as a tad pretentious here and there. Despite my gripes, I do like this, I'm glad I finally saw it, and think you should check it out if you enjoy the offbeat, or want to really get into the career of Van Sant.

Normally a movie with no structure, no plot, no defined characters and so little direction cannot work, but the genius that is Mel Brooks. Mel Brooks does it all in this one as the writer, producer, director, and plays most of the major roles himself. It has the feel of Mel Brooks almost improvising and making up funny jokes while using a vast array of elaborate historical period sets. In fact, it may not be a stretch for how this comedy was conceived. There are a ton of good one-liners, good physical humor, and a hilarious blend of cheery modern Hollywood/theater presentation of serious historical scenes. Brooks carries the comedic load well, but the lack of structure does eventually take its toll. It is only 90 minutes long it seems to go on just a little too long.

(ag) wrote: The film was OK, kinda hard to see in some parts. Great film, but not as good as Black Christmas.
(es) wrote: As a movie focused almost entirely on the philosophical discussion of religion through dialogue, it had all the elements to make me hate it completely, but somehow I found myself interested and moved by it. Belmondo, Riva and Melville all managed to make this a very compelling movie, but the conclusion (or the lack of one), no matter how masterfully shot, left me a little underwhelmed. Maybe that was the whole point.
(de) wrote: A so-bad-its-good sci-fi movie about a flying brain from the planet Arous. The acting is bad, the effects are bad and the story... well it's not super awesome, but it's so great that you can't help but like it!
