Sylvester Stallone is fighting the odds again, this time in the wrestling ring. As Cosmo Carboni, he and his two brothers dream of getting out of Hell's Kitchen (circa 1946) and into the big time. The exit signs point to Paradise Alley, a sleazy private club where the floorshow consists of raucous wrestling matches with big purses. Stallone not only starred in and wrote this action-packed film, he also made his directorial debut in this tale of three guys who could take anything Hell's Kitchen could dish out.
The Carboni brothers, con man Cosmo, disabled war veteran Lenny and dim-witted Victor, are determined to leave the slums of New York City. The trio tries to help each other with Victor's wrestling career using Lenny's promotional skills and Cosmo's con-artist tactics to thwart a sleazy manager. .

(au) wrote: The first half was pretty good, but from there, the movie really went downhill for a number of reasons. I guess the first reason is that the massive amount of blood, gore and violence was entertaining at first, but after that, it just got boring predictable. Also at one point towards the end, it just got flat out nasty, even I was disgusted and as a horror movie lover I have a pretty strong stomach. The segments just got more and more dull, a couple of them were trying to be philosophical or something I guess, but they just fell flat. This movie is 1:54 minutes long, but I swear, it felt closer to three hours. I was glad when it was over. Maybe if this movie had ended after the first three segments I would've given this a good rating, but at about the halfway point it just becomes gross and excessive without actually being entertaining.

There's a lot of handicam that, unlike most of the terrible found footage that swamps the market right now, is done right. That said it still manages to irritate, as it's over used for no other reason than to break up the monotony of the protagonist running through the same room over and over again; even Le Tarmac, the superclub featured in the film, has its limits.There's a fine line between realism and boring that Sleepless Nights straddles over for its duration. I kept wishing the film would get better and gain momentum, but all it really does it prolong the inevitable.That said, for it's budget and lack of pretentiousness it does do extremely well, and if it were not for a few well-dressed hackneyed plot lines, Sleepless Nights could be a very good film.It's one to watch when there's no obvious choice to be made. That said I wouldn't watch it a second time.

In some ways it seems too similar to Wajda's earlier and better film Everything For Sale (1968). Emotionally, however, I thought the film was effective and deeply affective. It's a rather grim meditation on death, loss, and regret. Because of its numerous intertexual references, I doubt it will make much of an impression on people who haven't seen several Wajda films. Probably, also, it's too Polish in temperament to find much of an audience in the United States at least.

It's a crap shoot with B-Movies, you might get blessed with true gems like 'Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry' or 'Cannibal Holocaust', or get absolute horse-shit like 'Werewolves on Wheels' (I still don't know how they messed that up), or this. I really found nothing to like about this movie... except I did laugh out loud a few times at how atrocious the acting was.

(mx) wrote: Andrzej Wajda's Ashes and Diamonds is the last film in the highly acclaimed war trilogy that put Poland on the map of greatest film nations. This series has been a great success in Poland because it follows the second world war through the eyes of the rebellious youth. We have follow them through the greatest event during the war, like the Warsaw up-spring. But in this last chapter is set during one single day, May 8, 1945 the liberation day when the Germans finally surrendered, but the future is still uncertain, because of the strong communist influence that is certainly going to grip the power.But there's a nationalist group that will prevent the communist of taking control, and one of this nationalists are the young Maciek who is ordered to kill one of the communist leaders. So we follow him in the last hours before he's about to conduct his assignments. The war has given him many mental scars through the years. From fighting the nazis to now fighting the communists. He wear sunglasses all the time, not because it makes them cool, like James Dean, but because all the time in the sewer during the up spring. "I wear these for my father land" as he puts it.My opinion about this film how ever is that it's kind of a slow film. I am a little afraid for saying what I'm about to say, but I actually hoped it would been much better, and with more action, and it isn't as great as the two previous films. I hoped that this last chapter would lead to something big. The one of the few things that was thrilling was the opening scene, but while watching the rest of the movie, I wasn't that impressed. But it's an alright story, though nothing more. But the main character is just as cool as James Dean, he have the same view towards authorities. So because of that I give this movie a marginal thumbs up.

This has some truly magical moments and the soundtrack composed by John Williams only adds to the magic, I would recommend you give it a go, you may love it...
