Amazing performances from all cast members and a brilliant plot line. despite all the time on this film it still remains as gripping to day as it was in 32. Flyboys watch out... here comes the dawn patrol!

Alex A (de) wrote: 10,000 BC boasts beautiful but occasionally dated visuals and...that's all. This could actually have been a decent blockbuster had it had a better screenwriter, director, and not been so historically inaccurate. The script is a squalor with cheap dialogue, boring and a few annoying characters, laughably self-important narration and a stale story. The frustratingly choppy editing, and phoned-in performances bogged it down very much too. 10,000 BC is a beautifully shot, but awfully written/executed affair.
Thomas W (es) wrote: With fantastic leading performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer to match an equally clever, irreverent, lightspeed dialogue script, 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' is an underrated gem of the genre. Writer/director Shane Black shows confidence and direction in this neo-noir feature that never takes itself very serious, but never falls short of captivating the audience in an exciting, mysterious, and utterly hilarious romp that proved to be a great return to form for Downey Jr. and Kilmer alike. Final Grade: A+
Henry P (gb) wrote: 3/4/17Good grief, another beloved property has gotten the big screen treatment. Is nothing sacred to them? Well at least it's sacred to the people who made this, because it shows. The people behind The Peanuts Movie waste no time establishing the storyline: Charlie Brown gathering the courage to talk to the Little Red Haired Girl while facing mishaps every step of the way. We begin with a snow day that establishes Charlie Brown as the down-on-his-luck guy who won't give up on achieving his dreams. Meanwhile, Snoopy is there to support him, and write his own story based on what he sees, creating a story-within-a-story that is easy to follow for anyone. Throughout these two stories (which is an obvious sign of needing to stretch the movie to a ninety-minute run time), Charlie Brown is developed as the lovable failure we know from the TV specials ABC runs every year, and so is every other character, who are voiced by actual children you've never heard the names of before, which adds a layer of genuineness, but their similarity to the original voices makes me wonder if they edit the recordings to sound more like the original actors. At least they didn't force well-known celebrities into this, or mangle it beyond recognition to do so. The care that went into translating the comic strips and TV specials to film was so obvious, they even left in little details that wouldn't work if it were about something else, and instead of forcing it into a cookie-cutter style of animation, they stick to the art style and tropes of the comic strip and TV special. However, they go wrong when they use a pop song for Charlie Brown's "learning to dance montage," and the winter dance. It's just totally wrong to use that there, I cannot forgive forcing pop songs into somewhere they have no place. Maybe the credits, but better yet, pop songs have no place in the Peanuts lore. Guess nothing is sacred. Except for also using true-to-the-source music and actual music from the TV specials in one form or another for authenticity. Overall, the Peanuts Movie will make you think "good grief" when you hear it exists, but will make you think "yay!" when you see it. 11/7/15"Good grief Blue Sky Studios, you blockheads really messed with a beloved American icon!" That is what I would say if The Peanuts Movie was a bad movie. But it is not. True, it feels lengthy and stretched; Like butter over too much bread. That's only because I'm used to these things being resolved in 30 minutes with commercials throughout, but that aside, this is a loving adaptation of the Peanuts characters, and here's why: We start with a snow day declared. Charlie Brown's little sister Lucy answering the phone call of Miss Othmar (Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews and his classic trombone sound for all the adults) that there's a snow-day! The other kids get this call, and winter fun begins for the Peanuts gang: Peppermint Patty, Marcy, Franklin, Linus and Lucy Van Pelt, Pig-Pen, and all the other characters you grew up with on those annual ABC reruns that have surpassed 50 years! (Fun fact: This year is the 50th anniversary of Merry Christmas Charlie Brown and the 65th anniversary of the original comic strips. Coincidence?) Following that, Charlie Brown is called out to play, and after getting himself together, he brings out: A kite? Good grief, it's one of those movies, where a kid feels hopelessly outmatched by the world, he wants to get the girl, but doesn't have the guts... Well, it goes in that direction after the Little Red-Haired Girl moves across the street from him, but with the help of his trusty dog Snoopy (Voiced through archive recordings by Bill Melendez, the original Snoopy sound effects) they embark on a quest to make Charlie Brown more confident. Along the way, we also see Snoopy write a story about a dog fighting the Red Baron (Sound familiar?) and both stories parallel each other splendidly: Charlie Brown's story inspires the story-within-a-story, bringing in more classic Peanuts without making it a cess-pool of hashed-together imagery of Peanuts. Whether you're eight or 80, you won't be able to help feeling for Charlie Brown, and maybe sympathize with him. The animation may seem odd at first, but that aside, it is a beautiful CGI rendering of the world of Peanuts that feels like one you could reach out and touch (Helps if you see it in 3D) and stays true to the cartoon visuals of the 60s specials and the comic strips. No new characters are introduced, and thankfully, celebrity voices are not forced into the roles of the characters, which avoids distractions of "Do I know this voice?" like Citizen Kane managed to do. Christoph Beck provides a great soundtrack to the main story, but don't think that songs meant to help market this movie and some of the Vince Guaraldi music didn't find their way in: The winter dance scene has modern music that seems out of place in a 60s-esque school, but because the Vince Guaraldi music was placed so well, I grant it a pardon: Every timeless tale and beloved character need some kind of twist here and there, or else this would not be a loving tribute, but a rehash of the same old thing. With a fresh new story of Charlie Brown trying to become more confident in visuals that stay true to the source material in a day-and-age of computers, and a cast of actors we won't remember, but who fill the shoes of the original voice actors of the Peanuts TV specials, The Peanuts Movie does not deserve to be slugged by the audience or critics, but to be praised. Those were no blockheads in the studio: Just good people doing the right thing.
