The mere idea is a bit unsettling if you really start to think about it, so let's stick to fiction while waiting for he actual fireworks:This movie shows us what will/might happen when said volcano finally comes to life. It is partially shot in documentary kind of way, showing interviews of several people involved.It also rather unsteadily jumps between past and present in the beginning, showing timelines both before and after the eruption begins. It is at times a bit confusing, but gradually becomes tolerable, and then stops altogether - even though the interviews still keep coming and going.As a whole, this movie doesn't flatter itself with special effects, which are quite archaic, but its plot moves nicely, it feels very real and based on actual facts (which it probably is, more or less), and the character seem real, although they are not the main focus and the actors make sure not to over-act anything by accident.A good disaster-flick for those who like them. I personally enjoyed "Supervolcano".

The story is predictable and lame, and the songs are constantly cheesy. Better off sticking to the first one, but I guess little kids will find something appealing in this somewhere.

These kinds of classic beauty are rarely seen anymore. Back to the plot, it's very funny and romantic. The macho playboy trying to protect some girls living in his residence under some mistake from some other guys. FUNNY!
(ag) wrote: Excellent if you know what you are getting into and actively seek it out. In stark comparison to modern works, this film relies heavily on the kind of work it seems only Ozu does. In the world contra standard technique, Ozu is no doubt a god. So different these films can be from modern cinema I doubt many that do not come to it of their own volition will come away with a good experience. It's not incredibly complex unless you make it so, yet the film is not something easy to accurately convey to another.

So Deeds is the only family member left, and not only does he get his uncle's place, but also his money. I was worried that watching this film, it'll be like Little Nicky in terms of its humor. Surprisingly Mr. Deeds is way better than Little Nicky. The humor is much improved a bit, instead of groaning at them in Little Nicky, it's just finding half of them stale and not giving me a laugh. The plot is pretty standard by today's measure, and the villain is generic in it also. When it doesn't get a laugh out of me, there a joke after them that really got me laughing. The chemistry between Longfellow and Babe is a bit sweet, and Adam Sandler's character doesn't act like a jerk in it, so that's nice to see. Mr. Deeds is a decent comedy that is thankfully better than I thought was going to be.

(de) wrote: i can't say i hated this film but i can't say i loved it much either. I thought of giving this film a look because i did enjoy Josh's other film The Hunger Games and Hayden's other film ( believe it or not) I love you beth cooper. But man this film has some magger problems and some magger good things. Lets start with the good things which includes casting,acting,and well lets just do those 2 because actually i don't think there was anything else about this movie that i liked or i'd have given this film 5 stars or 4 or 3 stars but i didn't. Ok lets begin with the casting. Ok i did enjoy the casting of Josh Hutcherson he was a perfect choice in the lead a star choice he perfectly showed how a troubled homeless person would act and be well sorta and i really liked the casting of Lauren Bacall and Alfred Molina they were perfect in each of their roles perfect . The acting is good actually considering this film has a feel of a made for television movie . I expected this film to have good acting because of Hayden , but Josh was a wild card in some of his movies he had good acting in others not so good acting but this time around he had... Good acting and it helped gain another star but where theres good news theirs bad news. The screen - play , made for television value , love story , story , those are the bad things. The screen - play is very chessy and poor it truly is sadly none of the actors can help it its just poor really poor. This film is well very low budget as you can see which gives it a made for television look and feel and the feel is not good not good at all just lame. The love story between Josh and Hayden is weak and at many times awkward prone it just is not good the director just can't write a good love story and Hayden was probably feeling sick because she did not help the love story and as for Josh on the love story he sunk it he really did . The love story was an on and off type thing on then off for a long time then on then off for another long time. The overrall story is pretty bad too. Its so on original and boring and really its not a drama at all is a well a it that can't find a true subject or story thats good enouge for itself. All an All this film is a bit everywhere more so bad then good but i did kinda enjoy it anyway. D+
